  5. Note the bulbous bow at 4:00 – smallest US ships to have those?

  6. Q & A What do you think of big gunned submarines? With notable real ships like the M-class and Surcouf coming to mind, but also some of US Bureau of Construction and Repair designs that incorporated eight or more 8 inch guns. Although ridiculous sounding, would these have had any at all usefulness in war?

  7. What happened to the dry dock episode number 41? Whenever I try and view it, I end up seeing drydock episode number 40! Will this be corrected? Or other people having this problem?

  8. This is a report from the Fletcher and Salt Lake City videos, but I'd like to reaffirm my suggestion: The japanese cruiser Izumo.

    It has a rich history, in my humble opinion, being part of the Russo-Japanese war as well as being present during the battle of Shanghai as the flagship of the Third Fleet. Peter Harmsen comments several times in his book "Shanghai 1937: Stalingrad on the Yangtze" how it lead a "charmed" life, remaining unscathed during the many chinese attacks on the ship.

    Although I understand if you choose not to review this ship, I'd be very happy to know if you've received this suggestion.

  14. The true American cruiser of WW2. Everybody on board got a station to fire some AA guns at Japanese planes. 😛

  16. Awesome video. And extra thanks for spending time mentioning the Sullivan brothers. Their name lives on in two US Navy Destroyers, DD 537 & DDG 68. Those 5/38 guns were an awesome weapon. As I recall, we could circumcise a gnat at up to seven miles with those things. But Gunner's Mates are not as truthful as Quartermasters, so the GM who told me that may've been exaggerating a skoshe. I have photos of the paint melted off the barrels of our 51 mount on the gun line in 1968.
