    Continuation of the thread Sir John Valentine Carden survives. 13 June 1941. Operation Battleaxe. Day 6. During the policing of the battlefield the previous day the men of 7th Tank Brigade were keen on discovering what it was that had killed so many of their tanks from long range. The...

    Threadmarks: 10 December 1935. 19:00hrs. Croydon Airport, England.

    10 December 1935. 19:00hrs. Croydon Airport, England. Sir John Carden stepped off the Savoia-Marchetti S.73 and felt like kissing the ground. The last few minutes of the flight had been as scary as anything he had ever experienced. The pilot had apologised to the people on board for the...
  4. P47 vs P51

    There was a film on TCM this evening called Fighter Squadron. Piece of propaganda but interesting idea. The American P47s, mostly used actual gun camera footage in their fight scenes. However a number of times the Luftwaffe were depicted flying P51s. So, simple question. In a straight up...
  5. Bf109E vs A6M2?

    Just out of curiosity, I've seen lots of information about the Zeke or Zero going up against the Allied aircraft. But would anyone have an idea of how they would do against the Messerschmitt Bf109E? For example if in an alternative universe the Flying Tigers were a German unit rather than...

  9. Expanded BEF 1914

    I finished a TL on ASB Forum that ISOTed the 1940 BEF to August 1914 to attack the flank of the German advance and throw them back behind the Meuse. In it I speculated on a what if posited by Allan Mallinson in his book 1914: Fight the Good Fight. He argues that the BEF who were thrown onto...
  10. airborne refueling before ww2

    There was a fair ammount of attempts at airborne refueling before the war, acording to wikipedia. What if it had become more widespread? I wonder if the luftwaffe had it how much longer their 109's would have had over England. Likewise fighter escorts long before the Mustang. What would have...
