They didn't actually say if they meant the quarter as in normal year or quarter as in fiscal quarter. What about instead of a straight-on bow mounting they were *vertically* mounted on the “cheeks” of the bow bulge? Just click on the picture below: 10 Best Battlestar Galactica Moments - WhatCulture, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Easter Egg Spotted in THE MANDALORIAN Season 2 - GeekTyrant, Battlestar Galactica Deadlock – The Thought Provoker? For some reason this post lacks a “Continue Reading” button. You can see some of these problems appear – to a lesser extent – in WW2 Japanese carrier design, which frequently featured paired, stacked hanger decks (one above the other). But the same factors – weight of fire, ease of fire control, mass-and-space savings – that lead to the development of uniform caliber, superfiring battleship main batteries are all at play here. A dorsal-mounted main battery actually makes very much sense for a battle-carrier type space ship. If you’re interested, take a look at how the Israelis and Indians put T-54 and T-55 series tanks to use against their Chinese and American counterparts. A Galactica je jednou velikou poutí jedné ne už tak počtem veliké rasy přeživších. Neskutečně se mi líbí ztvárnění vesmírných bitev - pohyby lodí, zoomování kamery ala Firefly, respektování faktu, že ve vesmíru vládne vakuum a hromada dalších drobností, které ale v konečném důsledku dokonale zapadají do celku. I recall that hangars in World War II carriers had fire curtains or whatever these were called which effectively split a single structural hangar into several compartments. Todd Boyce should also be noticed for his great website, Battle Spoo, and his Battlestar Galactica (and now Star Wars) conversions that are well done, and set a standard for those trying to adapt other universes to the B5W mold. Second flight of British Illustrious class carriers had secondary hangar below the primary one, as did some of US carriers. Probably my favorite space warship design is where the ship is built around a linear accelerator as main armament, which also goes to explain why it has a ship-like shape instead of being just, say, spherical. Note: This is ONLY to be used to report spam, advertising, and problematic (harassment, fighting, or rude) posts. The ship can orient itself in whatever direction it wants in any of the three dimensions. On the Nassaus, the problem wasn’t poor stability per se. In any event, though, that’s why you need antifighter engagement capability in Battlestar Galactica. If we want to nitpick, then they are just "planning" the release for Q4. Also unless they’re more ball-like in the turret they might not be able to fire on targets approaching that side directly because they can’t raise to a high enough elevation, the side-mounted guns would have to take over. The QF guns were very important as weapons against enemy battleships, and eventually grew to essentially merge with the main armament, most notably on the Lord Nelson class. He most certainly saw combat and was decorated for heroism for recovering tanks under fire. On battleships, Ian Johnston & Ian Buxton’s The Battleships Builders is a good read – including the Admiralty’s heavy direct investment in R&D (hydrodynamic experiments, royal dockyards, turbines…) and the perennial contest over costs (they lost in areas where they had no in-house expertise). CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF EXISTENCE DEDICATED TO BATTLESTAR GALACTICA- July 1, 2020. Some details are in https://www.navalgazing.net/Dreadnought, although I really need to write about turret arrangements in more depth. Galactica je však natolik jiná, že by pravděpodobně mohla konvenčního diváka i odradit, případně by ji někdo nemusel považovat za čistokrevnou sci-fi. With Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, Jamie Bamber, James Callis. All trademarks are property of their respective owners in the US and other countries. Now, does all of this matter? Not so well if the enemy is to ‘dorsal’ or ‘ventral.’. (As a side note, experienced Deadlock players may note that there is a small window where distant targets which are – relative to a Jupiter – in front and slightly above, may be engaged by both the door-kickers (which can elevate, if only slightly, from the ‘waterline’) and the dorsal battery, but (at least in my experience) that zone is painfully small and hardly seems an intended part of the ship’s design.). The difficulty with The T 34, prior to the T 34-85, was that it had a 2 man turret basket. 5.0 out of 5 stars 2. The Tantive IV does it, so does the Millennium Falcon. V druhá řada totiž dokázala něco, co není u seriálu moc běžné a to, že jsem nad dějem přemýšlel i v okamžicích, kdy jsem zrovna na seriál nekoukal. Dreadnought, to be clear, as 18,120 tons. Its been and still is a crazy year with all the COVID going and a race for a vaccine. Description: The Genesis Class arose from cost cutting measures proposed by the Adar administration some thirty-six years after the end of the First Cylon War. Tvůrci už vypustili veškerou vatu. Battlestar Galactica, Babylon 5, and Space Battleship Yamato Universes, both.Throughout the fleet lists you will come across many variants of standard ship designs.
