Name This Ship!
« on: January 18, 2016, 12:24:07 »
Thread similar to the one on AFV's, only for naval vessels, including ships, submarines, tenders, landing craft, naval missile systems, specialty naval aircraft not used by other branches of the service, EW gear, naval radars, radio masts, guns, turrets and other weapons mountings. NOTHING OPSEC is to be posted.  If you see something that is OPSEC, beadwindow the post straight to the mods. 

I will start:
Name this ship, what weapon system was it famous for and what was it's fate?

The French submarine Surcouf.  Apparently sunk by "colliding" with an American freighter in 1942.
I would rather be in a boat with a drink on the rocks than in the drink with a boat on the rocks.

Sorry forgot the weapon...now it had an 8in gun however it also had an observation plane...so either are unique for a submarine.

Looks like a single 12" gun as opposed to twin 8".

12 inch gun is correct.

Correct. The 12 inch gun could be fired under water and lob a 600 pound HE projectile 850 feet. 

Your turn to post...

I'm not having any luck copying images over so someone else may feel free. My image would have been of HMS Renown, my favorite WWII warship.

This is supposedly a one of a kind system, although it has many brothers and sisters. What is the name and function of the system and what ship is it allegedly only to be found on?

The weapon is the Russian point defence system called the AK630M1-2 "Roy" tested on the missile boat "P-44".

It is the ancestor of the current AK-630M-2 "Duet".

To start, I think it's US and the antennae array seems a tad overdone (at least to me). Perhaps an EW ship?

Rafael Typhoon Mk38 Mod2 developed for the US Navy, onboard a Ticonderoga class cruiser (possibly the USS Vella Wood for the original testing?)

BTW, I wish I could put up images to keep this thing going, but I have an old Mac and for some reason, I just can't load pictures to the Milnet site. Sorry.

If you locate pictures online,  you should be able to link them into a post. That way you don't actually have to update anything.
