How does carrier replace battleship as a modern capital ship ? (Part 4)
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Compare again with carrier. Say the same scenario - a carrier was visited by a group of enemy aircraft. The "sphere of influence" of a carrier is larger than battleship, and the planes will be intercepted by the fighter-fighter CAP (combat air patrol) around the battleship. CAP patrol distance is indeed much farther than the maximum range of naval gun battleship. Moreover CAP US Navy carriers are radar-shaped, more likely to intercept the opponent's aircraft. And unlike battleship, where the opposing plane can "hang out" beyond the range of AA ships, the CAP-caught aircraft will be immediately pursued in WVR, otherwise known as "dogfight" so that the whole attack becomes dispersed. In addition, hundreds of machine-gun / cannon bullets fired from one plane to drop another plane can be practically more economical than a DP gun effort in anti-aircraft function that fires dozens of large-caliber bullets in doing the same.
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
About flexibility, the carrier is absolutely no problem. There are three types of aircraft carried by aircraft carrier, namely fighter, dive-bomber and torpedo-bomber. Several types of aircraft double as dive / torpedo bomber. The enemy sent the plane ? Just send a fighter. The enemy sends a surface combatant ? Send a bomber dive and torpedo bomber and fighter if necessary, as an escort. Target on land ? Use a dive-bomber or dive / torpedo bomber. Moreover, the aircraft can be deployed in all directions to be free to fight against various targets. Finally, the effectiveness of these planes is not limited by distance. The accuracy of the naval gun battleship will decrease with distance, but not so with the plane. The plane still has to get closer to the target, so the ammunitions they drop will always be more accurate, and not affected by their distance from their ship.

I began work on the Airfix stuka a few days ago. The cockpit was well detailed but there were a lot of ejector pin marks, these don’t bother me, but others might find it annoying. Then I sprayed the cockpit with AK Interactive air series RLM 75. I did a black enamel wash, some silver chipping and hand painted the small details. I then built up and painted the gunbays for them to be displayed open. Once the engine was built I painted it with Vallejo Model Air NATO black, and followed the same weathering process as used on the spitfire engine. I also ordered some AK Interactive paneliner, I guess this is an alternative to Tamiya panel line accent, which is increasingly hard to find in the UK. I have also finished off the Hispano Ha-1112 buchon from ththe Dunkirk movie #plastickit #airfix #stuka #divebomber #ww2 #ww2planes #luftwaffe #germany #dunkirk #battleofbritain

Peachy 😍

Once you master regular push-ups and have enough strength and flexibility,it's time to do some Divebomber push-ups! Really challenging but excellent exercise for upper body. 🙆👍☺ #divebomber #pushups #exercises #strenght #workout #upperbody #fitness #martinafitness #instafit #gym #fit #fitlifestyle #underarmour #reebok #abs #getfit #health

I.S. dive-bombers, with one breaking away from the formation to attack. Early reports from the Pacific inferred that the great naval battle in the Coral Sea, fought from May 3 to May 9, was primarily one between the air forces of both sides. Telegraphing from an advanced Allied base, a correspondent described how one Japanese warship was destroyed by "waves of American dive-bombers". Thus the U.S.A. has quickly got into her stride in the naval air-war which will decide the fate of the Pacific.

This work ain't gonna do itself!!! Working on reinforcing the landing gear area. Laying down some carbon Kevlar and some shear webbing to help strengthen this area. Gotta get this thing closer to the finish line. #paint #fisish #project #wood #bates #jerrybates #dauntless #sbd #divebomber #bombs #fight #war #warplane #warbird #builder #build #cool #awesome #august
