Had to take this offline due to HUGE bandwidth usage, sorry



BobTuck sent me two pics from the extra-CD. His email has a size limit so he can only send me few things at the time.

He sent me one mail while i was away, nothing further, lets see if he can send me more. I've also mirrored the attack scope video.

Bismarck Class Battleship

Displacement: 42.340 t
Length: 247 m
Beam: 36 m
Draft: 8.7 m
Speed: 30.1 knots

Main Battery: 4 x twin 38cm
Secondary Battery: 6 x twin 15cm
Anti-Aircraft Battery: 8 x twin 10.5cm
8 x twin 3.7cm
12 x single 2 cm

Notes: Only two battleships of this class were completed when war broke out. Although a treaty with the British limited battleship displacement to 35,000 tons, Bismarck obviously exceeded that by a wide margin. Still, the design was a compromise, meant to avoid provoking the British, the main deficiency being poor deck armor, making the ships vulnerable to high angle fire. Bismarck was hunted down and sunk by the British in one of the most celebrated naval actions of the war.

Notes: The newest class of battleships in service with the RN at the start of WWII. Their 14 inch guns and turrets were of a new design and went through many teething problems before they became an relatively good gun. The 5.25 inch AA weaponry was among the best in the world. Only one of the class was lost in WWII, the Prince Of Wales, to Japanese aircraft, 3 days after Pearl Harbor.

it's a bit uncertain actually...

Neal from Subsim had a recent beta where they were enabled, but there was also rumor maybe it was disabled in gold version. I dont think we asked the ten UK visitors yet, they can probably tell us since they saw the Bismarck mission.

Even if it is disabled im not too worried, cause im pretty sure its still in the game somewhere and a mod will probably be out very quickly to turn it on. It may even be as simple as a change in a .ini file.

you are sitting in front of the attack scope (in the conning tower), just without your eye to the eyepiece. You can see the papenberg depth meter on the left, and the stopwatch underneath.

The whole scene is moving because of the movement of the boat and thus the movement of your (virtual) head.

When you click on the eyepiece, it takes you to the attack scope screen.

Type VIIC

Displacement: 769 t
Length: 67 m
Beam: 6.2 m
Draft: 4.7 m
Speed: 17.7 knots (surface)
7.6 knots (submerge)

Torpedoes: 14
4/1 (bow/stern tubes)
Deck Gun: 88 mm
Flak Gun: 37 mm
2 x twin 20 mm

Test depth: 220 m

Notes: Type VIIC was a slightly modified version of the successful VIIB. They had basically the same engine layout and power, but were slightly larger and heavier which made them not quite as fast as the VIIB. The VIIC was the workhorse of the German U-boat force in World War Two from 1941 onwards and boats of this type were being built throughout the war. The first VIIC boat being commissioned was the U-69 in 1940. The VIIC was an effective fighting machine and was seen in almost all areas where the U-boat force operated although their range was not as great as the one of the larger IX types.

Fletcher Class Destroyer

Displacement: 2.325 t
Length: 114.6 m

Anti-Aircraft Battery: 4 x 40mm

Torpedoes: 3 x 21€
ASW: 2 Racks
8 Depth charge mortars
1 Hedgehog

Notes: The largest single class of U.S. destroyers with 175 ships built, the Fletchers were the first "big" destroyers built for the U.S. Navy and fully broke from the treaty restrictions which had hampered earlier designs. The large increase in size over previous classes allowed a substantial increase in AA armament without reducing the main battery or torpedo loads. Because of their flush-deck design, the Fletchers were mainly stationed in the Pacific while the earlier forecastle designs were mainly sent to the Atlantic. Many Fletchers continued in service after the war and even through the 1960's.

Main Battery: 4 x twin 38cm
Secondary Battery: 6 x twin 15cm
Anti-Aircraft Battery: 8 x twin 10.5cm
8 x twin 3.7cm
12 x single 2 cm

Notes: Only two battleships of this class were completed when war broke out. Although a treaty with the British limited battleship displacement to 35,000 tons, Bismarck obviously exceeded that by a wide margin. Still, the design was a compromise, meant to avoid provoking the British, the main deficiency being poor deck armor, making the ships vulnerable to high angle fire. Bismarck was hunted down and sunk by the British in one of the most celebrated naval actions of the war. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

BobTuck sent me two pics from the extra-CD. His email has a size limit so he can only send me few things at the time.

He sent me one mail while i was away, nothing further, lets see if he can send me more. I've also mirrored the attack scope video.... <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
