Some parts of the text describing the AU-situation were altered (mainly eliminating the CV and CVL) to adapt to what Rhade tells convincingly in the texts above. The list of the composition of the Kriegsmarine on the end of page 5 was also altered to reflect the changes. And this ends this story, no...

Interesting indeed. Thank you for that long and useful information. Be it as it may, in my AU Germany now led by von Witzleben tries to help Finland and - having the soviet troops right next to its Eastern borders - takes the possibility given by the huge difficulties the soviets were having with th...

Good backstory do dictate a lot of things. In terms of ships it remodel Kriegsmarine to the core, when break GB by atlantic convoy raids is not needed, navy will get a lot less founding and all famous capital ships just not materialize. Hitler had already put up a plan to reequip also the KM. Yes, ...

So when in 1934 both sides sign German–Polish Non-Aggression Pact they could also sign a "Secret Additional Protocol" (in your face Molotov!) that in case of Soviet aggression Germany will declare a war in defence of Poland just like Poland would if Soviets would attack Prussia. Sorry for not havin...

Some quick thinking on the part of a navy jr. engineer caused a pair of empty oil tanks to be strapped onto the sides of the ship, fixing its instability. Soon after, these tanks were rived onto the sides of the ship, and a ballistic cap was fitted in order to improve hydrodynamics. That idea (or s...

This is the "Geleitboot" as in my AU Kriegsmarine it was built to replace the ill fated "Flottenbegleiter" class F1 to F10, built three years before (1936 to 1939). "Geleitboot" and "Flottenbegleiter" mean basically the same, "escort vessels" to unarmed or lesser armed convoys, normally resupply shi...

And herewith the thread ends but with the sad feeling that so much could have been ...
