|20150329 23:37||OldSpook||Here's an oldie|
|20150329 14:14||Pappy||Flower-class were a pretty simple and durable platform. I can see where it would lend itself to a low-level type of conflict. Since it's based on a commercial design, there's lots capability for mods.|
Flowers were designated in the USN as PGs (patrol gunboats,) btw.
|20150329 14:02||Shipman||Bad, get ahold of Micharl Gannon's Black May, lots of good history concerning the Flowers at the peak of the War in the Atlantic.|
|20150329 13:07||badanov||Some Sunday early afternoon Craig Morgan:|
|20150329 10:23||badanov||I guess it was WWII ship, not WWI.|
|20150329 10:19||badanov||It's a Flower class corvette|
|20150329 10:15||badanov||Open gun turrets. I'm not that good at graphics, not enough to close the turrets. The ship is functional, though, and only an update to date aircraft has any chance of even getting a shot off. The trusty rusty SU-25 ain't gonna do it. I got shot down three times before the ship even got on my radar.|
I managed to sink one of the corvettes with the Russian version of the AGM-65 Maverick, the Kh-29, before the AAA fire got too intense. It's a challenge.
It reminds me to the game Harpoon, except using Arma 2, it's in the minutiae. Not a bad thing, though, and very entertaining, if challeging.
The ship does the job, and it is the only reasonbly sized ship that does.
|20150329 09:20||Pappy||Given the modular configurations of many weapon systems, it's not all that far a stretch that an older warship might be reworked a bit for "local use." Though I wonder about the WWI vintage naval architecture...|
|20150328 23:37||badanov||Arma 2 has a WWI vintage corvette I have "modernized" with a SAM launcher for both sides, As it is, the artillery is long range enough to take down modern Arma 2 aircraft.|
It puts the game into as whole 'nother world dodging AAA and SAMS.
The aircraft used is an SU-34 loaded out w/ air launched ASMs.
Two corvettes w/ six light boats as escorts per side.
|20150328 23:21||Pappy||There used to be LSTs equipped with rocket launchers. |
And there was speculation some years back about converting one of the older 'gators' like an LSD or LPD; adding a vertical launch system into what was originally the flight deck and amphib well.
Big problem is that, for reasons I won't go into, it wouldn't have been a rapid-response combat-support system.
|20150328 17:46||Shipman||CSG = Cullinary Sp8c1alist Gun.|
|20150328 17:40||Glenmore||Just saw a flight of A-10's go over my house. Saw three, think I heard a fourth. Haven't seen them in a while. Not since the ANG at Belle Chasse adopted the Hornet a few years ago. Wonder who they belong to?|
|20150328 16:33||Pappy||bad: USN corvette designation is FS.|
Closest thing to an FS now is the LSC
Usually the 'G' designation is for ships with anti-air capability, like FFG, DDG. CG etc.
Subs have a 'G' if they have land-attack or anti-ship cruise missiles (Harpoons don't count.)
SSBN is a ballistic missile sub.
However, an amphib can have a 'G' meaning its equipped for fire-support
|20150328 12:30||badanov||Pappy: CS is US naval designation for a corvette. A corvette armed with antiship missiles would be designated CSG, correct?|

|20150325 21:34||3dc||Thing - one of my college friends turned out to be one of the folks who created the Church of the Subgenius. He explained it to me like this: A bunch of us got laid off from Texas Instruments. Mainly folks who worked on the mil stuff. We would meet to discuss jobs and stuff in this Unitarian Church. We noticed we had all sorts of tech audio and video skills and the Unitarians had a bunch of very skilled amateur actors and artists. The church agreed to vet what we came up with on an outrageous scale. The end result was the whole Church of the SubGenius theme. So Unitarians in Dallas-FortWorth plus laid off hi-tech workers.|
|20150325 20:57||Bright Pebbles||Think the Aribus crash needs to roll over again...|
Pilot leaves cockpit, can't get back in...
That sort of lessens likelyhood of accident..
|20150325 20:44||Thing From Snowy Mountain||I haven't seen the youtube video.|
|20150325 20:43||Thing From Snowy Mountain||I disagree with all of them to some extent: Ace, Robinson, and Boulder Terlit Hobo, who wrote the comment.|
My main problem with a lot of atheists is the same as with the Church of the Subgenius: they're basically philosophical creationists. Yah, traditional American culture was the result of a thousand years of evolution and a historical process going back to at least 1066 and going forward through a civil war every two or three generations, all the way up to the American Revolution... but they're going to make something better in a marathon college sophmore bull session, and on the seventh day, they'll rest.
|20150325 20:29||Pappy|| The problem with atheists is that they haven't lost their moral compass. So they'll seek out other frameworks of piety - in too many cases, frameworks that promise to make them better than Christians and Jews|
You mean like vegans outing the "false vegans in the Movement"? (true youtube vid...)
|20150325 20:02||Thing From Snowy Mountain||From the AOSHQ Comments Section:|
Robertson doesn't just get atheism wrong, he gets its moral weakness wrong.
The problem with atheists isn't that they are going to say "if God is absent, everything is permitted" (paraphrasing some Russian book I haven't read). The problem with atheists is that they haven't lost their moral compass. So they'll seek out other frameworks of piety - in too many cases, frameworks that promise to make them better than Christians and Jews.
And if more than one person accepts this new framework, we end up with Cultural Revolutions: http://tinyurl.com/pmmwhyv
Robertson needs to lay off the Pascal and start reading more Voegelin and Burke.
|20150325 20:01||Thing From Snowy Mountain||Well, Pappy, I didn't want to call people out since I do get pissy when I lock horns with someone that I believe is being deliberately abstruse in order to mask an agenda.|
It's kind of like having our own personal version of the OJ Simpson Jury.

|20150325 15:14||Deacon Blues||Nope. Just that if we weren't Mormons we weren't baptised.|
|20150325 14:22||Skidmark||Did he also talk of the baptism ceremonies Deacon? Much like monks scribbling the 9 billion names of God, the MOs have dipping parties for names pulled from geneologies, census, B/D records, voter records, etc. Those that drink the koolaid get extra points on their afterlife entrance exam.|
|20150325 13:06||Deacon Blues||Found out something I didn't know from one of my Mormon friends. If you were't baptised by a Mormon man of God in a Mormon church then you have not been baptized, you just got wet. He couldn't explain why.|

Evidence of "frugal" Dutchmen?
Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you The Flessenlikker
It is a common tool in kitchens in the Netherlands and available in many kitchen stores and supermarkets — although this may vary by region. It is almost entirely unused and unknown outside of that country.
