    Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    I don't know enough about ww2 in the far East but the things to me that seem relevant are ...... How does the Japanese advance compare to otl ? What are the forces available here compared to otl ? What if anything has changed in the Japanese plans to take account for these losses and delays ...

    WI: Kido Butai Spotted En Route to Pearl

    I think an unsubstantiated, posdibly garbled call from a merchant ship is going to go up the chain of command of the US forces ....be investigated. How accurate is the report ? All you really have is a location in international waters? The merchant ships radio officer cannot comment much...

    Wouldn't it be a more effective use of said submarines to sink Japanese surface logistics ? 24 tonnes in or a few hundered minimum deprived from Japanese effort.... seems to be a logical way to go. Also wounded and high value individuals can still be evacuated at the end of the war cruise .

    Its not a given that Hitler will declare war on America. We haven't heard about much outside the direct effects on this tank based timeline....perhaps politics are differant here, a subtle change or two and it may not happen.

    AHC:Wilhelm II conquers the world

    Well its going to be a hard job for the man but if you can make him say 250-300 feet tall, impervious to all shot and shells, he probably stands a good chance. But as there is only one of him he cant be everywhere so im thinking its going to be a tenuous hold over most of the globe .

    So...your an Italian infantryman.........the war is frankly not going well , somewhere out there in the dark are the British.......lots of them.......and they always win!. But it's worse than that...those English men have those huge Australians with them....and those scary men in...

    What if the United Kingdom invoked NATO's Article V in response to the Troubles?

    So ... could article v be triggered by a crossborder attack or series of attacks that the Irish government is unable or unwilling to surpress ?

    Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    I think lot of this speculation is a little pointless here. Afterall this is a time line about British tank development.....the rest is rather vague grand history that sort of happens. Tank development is not going to be pushed by fighting in areas where they cant deploy tanks.... its going to...

    Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    It's not worth it. Withdrawn from service to go to be rebuilt ...though at what site....war on you know. Then retrain crew. Time worn airframes Not in production ....lack of spares. It wasn't worth it in out time, why when the UK and Commonwealth is in a better situation would they look at...

    Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    I must admit i thought it was pretty common knowledge that the General Stuart was allso called Honey . As i understand it she was a Honey of a tank. And much appreciated by it's crews.

    One thing from this timelines perspective is the after battle reports. British tanks no longer cut the mustard, they are in need of updating to keep that little bit of an edge. The need for a decent he round is going to get so loud it cannot be ignored. More or better sloped armour is needed...

    Had the Patriots taken most of Canada, what would happen to the Loyalists?

    Slightly off the gist of the thread but why are the American rebels called patriots ? Surely as a British subject the patriotic thing would be to be loyal to ones King....rebelling against the king is sort of the opposite of patriotic ? Im not doing this for argument im just wondering where...

    It is amazing how many people drop what looks like fudge brownies on the track....yet those people never ask us to retrieve them....no idea why

    Trust me.......still have some carriges that deposit directly onto the track here in uk. We have to make it very clear to customers if they do happen to drop something on the track they probably don't really want it or should at very least sterilise it !!

    Can you point me in the way of the post that says that as i seem to have missed it. Thanks

    Sir John Valentine Carden survives.

    From a German point of view it will still look like the British are very good at evacuating troops from the continent. There has been a wildly successful campaign in France, a few set backs...but wild sucess will mean there importance is probably missed. There has been a successful campaign in...

    Keynes' Cruisers Volume 2

    Soviet aircraft in otl didn't have stars on the wings......what has changed it here ?

    Sir John Valentine Carden survives.

    One thing to perhaps consider is that we look at this and we see the improvements over our timeline... but the Germans here still see victories over the British, costly but not crippling. The Nazi ideology, their ego's, their prospective of other armies and what they can achieve over them has...

    So as my knowledge of the Greek campaign is deplorable, how do we stand in relation to otl , In time and in saved extra resources ?
