Had all the look of the Lusitania or his brother the Mauretania of the "Cunard"; the first was sunk the 7th May 1915 in WWI by the U-20(Schwieger)with high loss of life and the second one was broken up in 1935.

great liners of the past is my other pasion besides ww2

the beta ship is slightly wider. the ship has a fatter apperence that lusitania but it looks almost identacal i think thats what the modder was going for
has the wide the 1940s look with the old 1910s style

the ship is more or less a cunard/ white star generic in my opinoin got a qualitys of all ships. you can tell by the curved bow (lus had a straight one) also the forward superstraucture is different therefor the sh3 ship is not the lusitania
yes shulz we know the britanic/gigantic sank in ww1, by a mine most likly, but it wil stil be cool it sh3

I loved Ocean Liners and still do, they were a strong interest I had.

But if you added this one

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/5/56/SS_United_States_postcard.jpg

Its regular service speed was 32 Knots and max could go to about 38 Knots, so that would make
it very tricky to sink.

The Normandie was a ferry for the 1st & 2nd class passengers to and from the Olympic, Titanic & Brittanic and is now a floating restaurant somewhere in France. Incidentally if you read up on the Titanic there is some dispute as to whether it is indeed the Titanic or her sister ship the Olympic at the bottom of the atlantic, the first book is called the Riddle of the Titanic who's co author is Robin Gardner (Sorry all I can remember about the author is his surname has the word 'van' in it), Robin Gardner wrote the second book himself.

Only the "estetic" of the ship had a little suffer,but, is the price to pay for the safety and follow the new rules.

Do you guys know what happened to the Holland America liners in ww2?

At the start of World War II, HAL had 25 ships; nine remained at war's end.

-The Westernland, berthed at Falmouth, England, becomes the seat of the Netherlands government.

-The Nieuw Amsterdam sails half a million miles transporting 400,000 military personnel.

-Volendam was damaged by U-60 the 31th August 1940 and was converted to a troop transport and returned to service in July 1941.

-Zaandam was sunk by U-174 the 2th Nov 1942 (134 dead and 165 survivors).

Nieuw Amsterdam, Veendam, Noordam, Westerdam survided the war with other five.

Not others information available in moment.

ss rotterdam made her maiden voyage on September 3, 1959 therefor wasnt in ww2
there were 5 statendams one in 1998-1911, one in 1917-1918 torpeadoed in 1918 and sank, one in 1929-1940 (the one you must be refering to) it caught fire in 1940 and was scrapped in 1940, the next one came in 1956

1929-1940

whoa! where are your deck gunners aiming??

Also, I read up on the Britannic a little.
Those huge lifeboat davits, there were originaly soppose to be eight of them, but because it was pushed into service early, they only got four on it. The davits were designed to be big enough to reach across the ship and get the lifeboats on the other side incase the davits on the othere side were broken or something like that (Blown off).

Umm Technically Britannic had the larger davits installed and designed like they were so if the ship listed like the lusitania the davit could reach across and pick the lifeboat up and launch it on the other side where it would be easier to launch. Also the davits were planned in 1912 so they werent designed as a feature for when she went to war in 1914.

Also as to the remark about Olympic being at the bottom of the sea, that is a old rumor that only people that dont know about titanic claims. First of all Olympic was hull number 400 every part on her was stampped with 400, Titanic was Hull number 401 and everything on her including the crank on the Recriprocating engines had 401 stamped on them. Also when they inspected her propellers which were sticking above the mud the 401 number stamped on one of the blades was visable. Since my friend Jim cameron went back in 2001 and then back again in 2005 there has been alot of differences found such as theres more columns in the reception room area than there ever was in olympic.

Another common misinterpertation is that Olympic and Titanic were both 45,000 Tons when acctually they werent, Olympic was 45,000 Tons but Titanic was 47,000 Tons mainly cause Titanic had changes to her design such as the enclosed foreward Promenade deck, the addition to the modified engines which would net her a faster top speed (Olympic`s record top speed was 21 knots) (Titanic`s record speed before she sunk was 21 1/2 Knots and that was with Boiler rooms #2,3,4,5,6 online and Boiler Room #1 offline.

Also you state that Britannic was rushed into service? Thats farther from the truth she was 100% completed and was about to go into the Passengership work when war broke out and all her accomidations from state rooms and the staircase and everything was removed and put in storage and she went into service as was. Never a plan for more of the large davits than she got. The Welin Quadrant davits used on Titanic were designed just like the larger box girder davit used on Britannic, Titanic`s could move inboard for another row of lifeboats which she was orignally was going to have 62 lifeboats but the idea was overrulled cause it was too many and would clutter the deck. By the way look at the picture of Britannic she has 8 large davits anyways


Anyways Who cares if the liners look inplace or not in place in the game. Your changing history by sinking ships that might have never been sunk. I will keep an eye out to get this mod once its out if its not out already.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
