So, no comments... Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

Well, I've already given my comments, and my opinion hasn't shifted.

Ok. So essentially, this is what you're looking for?

Hey, as far as I can see, you've done a heck of good job there! I know it's hard to do stuff like that, but I think you got it pretty well! (I have to admit I never expected this!)

Bezo, thank you! I will say that now, I am glad I did that. Even though it is a small detail(well, you know what I mean), to me it looks 100% better.

Very, very nice!
It appears that you have some extra hull strength to spare according to springsharp, you can use it to increase the range and/or armor until the Overall Strength value becomes 1.00, or you can simply lower the block coefficent (and thus displacement). :D

Thank you BB1987! :)
I have updated the SS report and added 800 miles to the range and increased the armor on the belts.

Alright.. Here we go again.
This is a pre-dreadnought built by Newport News in 1896 for the Denton Navy. It was designed in conjunction with the Kearsarge BB-5 and Illinois BB-7 battleships being built at the time, so it looks a lot like both ships. The layout follows the Illinois, when it comes to the gun setup, except for the addition of another set of 5" casemates amidships.
Now, I did do this fairly quick, so if you spot anything I missed, just let me know and I will fix it! ;)

Here she is, DNS Innsbruck.

So my plan is to work on the Denton Navy from 1915, when Denton enters WWII after the sinking of 'The Concordian,' all the way to modern day (in chronological order).
With help from Eswube, I have a fleet list from 1915 to 1950s, shown in the spoiler below. However, I am only working with 1915 for the time being.


1915 (4 Capital Ships, 8 Cruisers, 13-15 Torpedo Ships)
1 x 1880 Ironclad/Monitor (small ship ca.2000-4000t, used as training ship and in poor condition)
1 x 1900 Pre-Dreadnought (BB-3 Innsbruck)
2 x 1912 Dreadnought (BB-4 Fort Albany Class)
2 x 1905 Armored Cruiser (USS Tennessee)
4 x 1880-1890 Protected Cruiser (small ships, likely more than one class) (USS Atlanta, Olympia)
2 x 1905 Protected Cruiser (Russian Aurora?)
4 x 1890 Torpedo Boat (ca. 100t, maybe even less)
2 x 1900 Torpedo Boat
3 x 1900 Destroyer (B class)
6 x 1910 Destroyer (Beagle)

To be continued at a later date:

1922 (3 Capital Ships, 8 Cruisers, 16 Torpedo Ships)
1 x 1900 Pre-Drednought (training and coastal defence ship)
2 x 1912 Dreadnought
2 x 1905 Armored Cruiser
2 x 1905 Protected Cruiser
4 x 1915 Light Cruiser
2 x 1900 Torpedo Boat
2 x 1900 Destroyer
6 x 1910 Destroyer
6 x 1915 Destroyer

1935 (3 Capital Ships, 8 Cruisers, 18 Torpedo Ships, 3 Submarines)
1 x 1900 Pre-Drednought (training and coastal defence ship, in poor condition, likely in reserve)
2 x 1912 Dreadnought (modernized BB-34 New York Class)
2 x 1930 Heavy Cruiser (Wichita CA-45)
2 x 1905 Protected Cruiser
4 x 1915 Light Cruiser
6 x 1910 Destroyer
6 x 1915 Destroyer
6 x 1930 Destroyer (Porter Class)
3 x 1925 Submarine
1 x Aircrarft Carrier (on hull of never-completed "1930 Heavy Cruiser")?

1945 (4 Aircraft Carriers, 3 Capital Ships, 8-10 Cruisers, 36 Torpedo Ships/Large Escorts, 6-9 Submarines)
2 x Fleet Aircraft Carrier (1 x 1930 and 1 new?)
2 x Escort Carrier (Casablanca)
2 x 1912 Dreadnought (modernized BB-34 New York Class)
1 x 1937 Battlecruiser
2 x 1930 Heavy Cruiser (Wichita CA-45)
2-4 x 1915 Light Cruiser
4 x 1937 Light Cruiser (St. Louis class)
6 x 1915 Destroyer (in secondary roles)
6 x 1930 Destroyer
12 x 1940 Destroyer
12 x 1940 Destroyer Escort (might include Lend-Lease Ships)
3 x 1925 Submarine
3-6 x 1940 Submarine

1950 fleet (2-3 Aircarft Carriers, 1 Capital Ship, 6 Cruisers, 24 Escorts, 3-6 Submarines)
2 x Fleet Aircraft Carrier
0-1 x Escort Carrier (very likely in reserve/maybe as aviation training ship, in late 1950s perhaps as experimental helicopter carrier)
1 x 1937 Battlecruiser
2 x 1930 Heavy Cruiser (to be decommissioned soon, maybe already in reserve)
4 x 1940 Light Cruiser
total of 24 x Destroyer
6 x 1930 Destroyer, 12 x 1940 Destroyer, 6 x Destroyer Escort
3-6 x 1940 Submarine.

NOTE: ship names in parentheses are ships already drawn or will be the base for ships to be drawn

I plan on basing most of my ships (mainly capital) off of American ships, at least until the 1920s, when Denton starts to manufacture (most) them domestically.

With all this being said, I need some help finding ships suitable for:
1880 Ironclad/Monitor
1890 AND 1900 Torpedo Boat

I can't seem to find a good listing of the ships that were built for these times and classes and I have not been able to find much in the Bucket (mainly because of lack of information).

Any help and input would be appreciated.

-EZ

Look at the Archive in Shipbuket Homepage, there are several Italian and Dutch ships. Also look at other AU nations
