Well this decade turned out to be the oh please give me a CV decade. For starters the 2 BBs i wanted to turn into CVs couldn't because their hull form would not allow them to go past 23 knots, but i decided to keep them as they do have 8 15-inch guns. I also got hit with the least effective treaty i have ever seen(33,000t and 15 inch gun calibre). It was during that treaty that i decided to build 4 AVs with the sole purpose of converting into CVs. Unfortunately i got CV construction 1/4 of the AVs construction and began to build the CV when i got hit with budget problems as Italy went to war with me and i had to deal with a lot of damaged CAs and as such i didn't finish the dam CV until 1950. On a plus side this meant i didn't need to worry about the 8x8-inch gun problem with the refits of the AVs.
Hey um America, what's wrong with your engineers? They built 5 of these and they have 13 aircraft.
Ended the game in 1965 because there just wasn't really much to do anymore. I'm still impressed that this game is the one where i got the most amount of prestige i have ever gotten in a game(75). Only posting this refit because the engine refit from 34 to 35 knots somehow left me with half the engine weight and i used that to cram as much stuff onto that ship as i could.
Italy went to war with me for the last time.
And that is all. It was nice to have another run last to the 50s and beyond. Not gonna bother with another challenge run for a long time(if i even bother doing another one) but if you have other challenge runs you want to do you can always post them here.
Currently doing a new challenge run and i have 1 question. Why won't you let me have main gun case-mates be larger than 10 inches? you let me have 11 inch secondary guns. Is there a technology i don't have yet?
Bloody hell France really loves to go to war with me. Managed to take their only Caribbean possession. I also had to deal with a 12,000t and 10 inch gun treaty for nearly a year.
Made 12 of these with the hope of them becoming raiders but they have short range so they could't so i converted them to CVLs and even after doing that they still costed less to build and maintain than all of my(currently operating) destroyer classes.
Another one. Again. Come on France.
I'm finally designing and building the next gen of BBs and BCs(after losing the last ones to the treaty) but that will have to wait till next time.
Well unfortunately no wars happened this decade and i had a very difficult time building up the new BBs and BCs as i have the lowest budget in the world but most of them are built now and just in time for America AND Britain to have very high tensions with me. Great, now i need a bunch of submarines but i can't afford them as i'm already making a new class of CLs and an extra class of BB from Germany(as they have 20-inch guns).
God i hope i win this war with a lot of CL battles but that probably won't happen.
