Are there any pictures of the eGLas single 35mm AA gun mounted on a Samil or Kwevoel 100?
I could have sworn I saw one somewhere, but can't seem to locate it.

Charles Whiting (Pen name: Duncan Harding), Convoy of Death, 2005

United Kingdom

HMS Black Swan
Minesweeper, class not specified
Armament: Bren Machine Guns, Lewis Machine Guns, Oerlikon guns (20mm), Bofors Guns (40mm), Parachute and Cable Rockets, Holman Projectors
Two funnels
Triple Expansion Steam Engine, power 1200ph
Described as "...old tube of a minesweeper which should have been scrapped years ago."
No other details provided.
Note: Name clashes with the name ship of the Black Swan Class Sloops.

Unnamed
Corvette, class not specified
Armament: 4.5 inch guns, .5 Machine guns

Germany

U-222
U-Boat, type not specified
Note: Pennant number matches that of a Type VIIc Class U-Boat sunk in the Baltic in 1942

U-332
U-Boat, type not specified
Note: Pennant number matches that of a Type VIIc Class U-Boat sunk in the Atlantic in 1943. In the novel the submarine sinks in 1942

Unnamed
Several U-Boats, S-Boats

Plot summary: The year is 1942. Another convoy makes it's way to Russia.

Note: The cover by Paul Dickinson, while a nice piece of 'action' artwork, does not fit the action of the novel at all, nor does the minesweeper depicted match the ship in the novel.

Early Aircraft Projects / Re: Fairey Prototypes & Projects Pre-1945
« Last post by Schneiderman on Today at 08:22:43 am »
Richard Fairey always complained that Air Ministry specs were too restricting a resulted in poor aircraft, but in truth a large part of the problem was him as he was a very conservative man who focussed too much on profit and not enough on innovation. As a consequence he tended to have his team recycle designs as much as he could. So I would guess that 26/27 and 29/27 submissions would have been based on III and Fox and 21/28 would have been a reworked version of the long range monoplane.
