Post Oceanic News Thread- 1922-3

December 18th 1922

SCANDAL

HMS HOOD-WINKED

His Majesty King George V's Ship, the Hood, Pride of the British Royal Navy has been impounded by US Garrison forces at Panama Canal for breaching the terms of the Washington Proposal (signed and ratified by both parties in 1916). While the Hood was being lowered in the locks for transferal through the Canal one canny dockworker noticed the old gal had been putting on weight, some 6000 tons to be precise!

The British Government and Admiralty have refused comment, however our reporters have secured documents that reveal the Hood will have two turrets removed to bring her back to Treaty limits. It seems likely the British will work on a treaty legal ship and scrap the now Toothless Tiger after this embarrassing shambles!

HMS Hood SOLD to the lowest bidder!




Following the Panama scandal of the 18th of December, the British Government has sold the HMS Hood to the Republic of Uruguay for 7092 pounds sterling (coincidentally the number of tons the Hood was over treaty limitations). Given Uruguay isn't a signatory of the Washington Proposal the Hood is technically no longer in violation of the treaty.

The United States Government has refused comment, but reports indicate the move has caused significant consecration within the halls of power and a reaction seems likely.

HMS HOOD INTERCEPTED BY USN SQUADRON


A United States Naval Squadron has intercepted the HMS Hood while en-route to Uruguay for recommissioning as a Uruguayan Naval Vessel. The US Squadron demanded the Hood comply with Washington Proposal limits. After a tense standoff lasting 12 hours while the Hood communicated with the British Admiralty the Hood agreed to an escort to New York for the relevant refitting.

To allay Uruguayan distress over their new Battleship being seized the United States Government is paying the Uruguayan government 34'000 dollars (coincidentally the weight limit the Hood was to comply with). Both the British and American administrations have made announcements emphasizing their peaceful intentions.

Despite outrage from the British general public it seems the British parliament seeks to avoid war

Well....for the Brits it's either agree to the public chastisement, or watch the US build two more Capital Ships and add on additional torpedo bulges, armor, or weapons to the tune of 2,000 tons, which could include updating ALL BBs to 16in guns from 14in ones.

LOL about the Japan three war and never loses but always gets screwed. especially in the last two.

South American war ended while Tac had a few division headed to French possesions. Some in the south pac and the rest to madigascar.

Cant remember what Japans big plan was in the Phillipine war but it was a weird little war. a serious threat to Japan but a minor skirmish for everyone else. But got treated as a skirmish for Japan.

I just started reading this

besides describing the IJN airpower it provides an interesting look at why fighting a war vs observing it can change who leads in what ie ijn airpower was used very aggressively and with a few first at Tsignato but then everyone passed them as Japan had no more combat operations.

Not to mention, new plants, making the main armament have higher elevations, complete rearrangement of the secondary armament, etc.

The RN at this point has a fraction of the capital to work with that the US does. That can be seen in the historical record of US battleship rebuilds versus what the British did. Compare the best rebuild of a QE class to the refits the New Mexico class got for example. All the US BB of this era got better refits than any of the R class as another.

One might also wonder why carriers were left out...

Given Britain will be saddled with the FAA versus the USN and IJN having independent naval air arms...

Russia Founds Sikorsky Imperial Aviation
RUSSIAN AVIATION TAKES OFF


IA3 purchased by an American businessman for display in America

Igor Sikorsky, famous for designing the Ilya Muromets heavy bomber just before the First Oceanic War, has just struck a deal with the Russian Government forming an official Imperial design bureau. Joining him are several aspiring aviation engineers from throughout Russia, including some rising stars of the profession, Dmitry Pavlovich Grigorovich and Nikolai Nikolaevich Polikarpov.

Pictured is the first production plane of the SIA, the Imperial Airliner 3 (IA3), a twin engined plane designed to carry 16 people in comfort, the Tsar has announced plans to establish an "Airborne Railway" across Russia with planes such as this.

(Just a few headlines with a brief explanation for this one)

USS DELAWARE COMMISSIONED


(Part of the Marintimes class (the lead ship of which was sunk in the Philipines). 30'000 tons with a 55 aircraft complement and a large number of 5" guns in single turrets with two pairs of 8" guns in turrets)


HMS Dashwood and HMS Martins Being rebuilt to Washington Proposal Specification


French Africa BOOMING


(The French have begun their "5 year plan" equivalents in the French African holdings in an attempt to increase their industrial and agricultural output. The numbers look great but that's because they're establishing factories where there were none previously and tracking the differences in production. In reality it's going to be years before the French start to break even.)

Comrade Ogilvy Launched!

The French launch their first new design Battleship, the lead ship and title ship of her class. Touted as a powerful fast Battleship, the only things publicly known are that she uses unusual Quadruple Turrets for her likely 13-14in main armament, and has a rumored speed somewhere near 30kts. Otherwise, people are surprised to hear that it's believed to stay within treaty restrictions, unlike the Paris-Class Cruisers, which are rumored to have illegal main armaments.

The view from St. Pete.

These Americans sure seem to be behaving in an overbearing way... we wonder what that entails for their Allies.

At the same time this is happening, the transition to Constitutional Monarchy has become a bit complicated. Shortly after the old Czar abdicated citing "health reasons" the heir died of predictably natural causes as he insisted on riding a horse at a state ceremony. Olga Romanov unexpectedly stepped aside to make room for another Romanov-
Quote:
Tatiana was her polar opposite: brisk and highly self-controlled, she was a natural-born organiser, prompting her sisters to nickname her ‘The Governess’. Having inherited her mother’s intense reserve, she was often seen as haughty and detached by those who did not know her. But without doubt she was the most beautiful, stylish – and enigmatic – Romanov daughter.
"Another Catherine", some call her, and instead of throwing her energy into combating other Russians, such as the Constitutionalists, the Czarina made contact with all the foreign diplomats in Russia and engaged in a whirlwind tour of Europe and America. By means of influence and her workaholic nature, Russia has a leader superior to any other in the last half century.

As for the Flying Giants of Sikorsky, despite Tatiana's favor (a matching pair are her conveyance on those tours) it is remembered that both of the Ilyas fell to pieces within weeks of arriving on the Pacific. True, one was helped along by a burst of German MG fire, but it was still seen as something of a disappointment. Newer versions are built for ruggedness and adaptability. This includes the world's largest Seaplanes, which have proven to be a more cost-effective way of "showing the flag" than a squadron of Gunboats... and more timely.

One will be arriving in Baltimore soon, carrying high-level officials seeking to 'clarify the situation' with their American counterparts.

IRAN IN FLAMES

Anglo-Persian Refinery

Persia, the main source of Oil and it's related products for the British Empire is experiencing increasing levels of unrest. Local officials blame rebellious elements traversing from the increasingly unstable Ottoman Empire. Troops from India and the Pacific colonies are being transported to help the Royal Family of Persia suppress the rebellion, the Tsarina Tatiana has arranged for a couple Brigades of Cossacks to assist from the north.

Diplomats from Germany and the United States have expressed concern regarding the situation but strategic experts expect no serious interference given the lack of US/Ger projection in the Gulf of Aden.

USFR ADMIRALTY RESHUFFLE ANNOUNCED AT ARC DE TRIOMPHE CONFERENCE



In expectation of a reshuffle in the USFR admiralty following their disastrous Pacific naval campaign, many anticipated big news when Comrade Jaques Ogilvie announced his intention to hold a press conference; his first since the previous election. “The axis of hatred aligns itself again along the meridian of mayhem” began the highly charismatic and widely beloved member of the United French Socialism movement in a speech delivered beneath the Arc de Triomphe last Saturday evening. His address ratifying the suspicions of many tranz-euro geopolitical watchdogs who had predicted a global upscaling of military production in the wake of tensions surrounding the HMS Hood escapade. “In my time as an Admiral, I truly learned and appreciated the value of competence and tenacity.” Continued an increasingly emotional Comrade Ogilvie. “In my time on Martinique… I learned the value of comradeship, and the true gravity of responsibilities’ burden. It is these experiences which made me the man who stands before you: one man among many who strove to build a better France for the French who build a better world. As such, I believe France deserves leadership worthy of such a responsibility! The incompetence displayed by Pacific Admiral Jean Poissan in our most recent naval campaign has, we can all agree, been utterly unacceptable!” concluded Comrade Ogilvie, to general enthusiasm from the modest assembly of military personnel, party officials and press. Many analysts have attributed falling numbers of French military volunteers to a lack of confidence in military leadership as a result of Admiral Poissan’s inadequacy in the field. “Therefore, it is with a heavy heart that I have decided to once again bear the sword for the people of France and effective immediately assume direct control of Admiral Poissan’s Pacific Taskforce. I can only hope that I am worthy of the responsibility which is now entrusted to my care by the mothers of France. May our Socialist Republic never die! Viva la France!” Applause rang out across the Champs-Élysées as Ogilvie descended from the podium, approving of this surprising move. Time will only tell what the allies and enemies of the USFR will make of this unexpected turn of events.

PERSIAN WINTER HEATS UP


A Captured French Mule Train

British forces in Persia encountered some unwanted guests in a heated battle last night. From what Gunrandeep Singh of the 12th Indian Rifles had to say to our respondent, it seems the French are using clandestine freighters to ship arms and weaponry to militia in the east of Persia. Because the British have a tight blockade on Persian coastlines it seems the mule trains are originating from wilder parts of British India. One anonymous tip claimed supplies were coming from the other side of the Himalayas to avoid British scrutiny.

This cowardly tactic of supplying insurgent forces to foster discontent is a signature tactic of the USFR, most famously employed during the Philippines Incident of 1921.
