    That's going to be a bunch of 16g CO2 capsules! ;-)

    I'd wager you didn't buy them to look at.

    Let the DD reload 1-2 time a sortie, easy , fun, not a killer ship.
    As an a plus for the not DD captains, more chance to get a couple holes in that thing and sink it.

    In the southeast, we've been allowing destroyers to rearm during sorties so that the captains can enjoy more battling time. And like Bob says, to get more chances to let them get their pants wet.

    Don't need to sink 'em to have the skipper's pants wet. Just let Charley's Vanguard fire a couple of salvo's in their vicinity. Pants will be wet before they even get into the pond

    I don't know. I'll be enjoying a cool one until I hear the first "On Five"! ;-)

    I don't think that statement even begins to describe the carnage. Get your battlecruiser 110% ready. It'll be way more fun.

    The 2 Vanguards had to have some refits after the Brouhaha they had 1- 1/2" of penetrability that had to be closed in to the 1" requirement. We gave far to many freebies away. Changed the pump outlets as the rooster tails didn't suit me well. Cannons repositioned. Increased drag for better thrust, new design 2 motor drives. Should be much nastier now..... I hope they will be as these look to be our Nats ships.

    I think next year I am going back to my roots Axis

    Charley is as anal-retentive detail oriented about his engineering as McSpuds is about his woodworking. Messing around with boats around these two give me a severe case of inferiority complex (not to mention skill envy)

    Are those BC gearboxes or something you did with laser cutting?

    They can be BC Gear boxes as I make all the BC plates for gear boxes. I made these for the Vanguards. I can make nearly any shape or motor orientation

    The event is looking strong 20 ships to date. But the AXIS need some help.

    Planing on having the DKM Scharnhorst there and in great shape. Just got the rest of the guns and the solenoids for it tonight. Batteries are in transit from Houston, should be there long before I get back home. Now I just need a regulator.

    I was going to be running Invincible, but might wind up in Lil Scharney just to enjoy the odds more. Either that, or a glorious flag/no-flag battle. If the Axis is still outnumbered 50-20, I suspect that'll be the case regardless of which side I go to :)

    I intend on build a Seydlitz hull mould so I can have Axis next year so if sides look one sided I can switch up
