■U4F Daily Naval News■
Under the long-lasting threat of the Abyssal units prowling around the Atlantic seas and mostly the world, the Kriegsmarine has ordered additional coastal defences along the shore of Netherlands. The project for the H-class Battleships was brought up multiples times clarifying if a Kanmusu with the soul of H44 has appeared. As of now, no further news.

■Allied Admirals under the U4F Pact■

I had heavily debated on posting this image of USS Astoria (CA-34) at Sydney on 16 March 1934 to close out the Guadalcanal posts; but in all honesty, I thought it too majestic and wanted to depict Guadalcanal as bleakly as it is described. I feel that I made the right choice, BUT this photo has been sitting in my drafts and it’s just too good to sit on. The loss of this storied heavy cruiser caused all her sisters to be renamed as the New Orleans class; note the range dial on the superstructure, for communicating target distance with ships ahead and behind in formation. Also noteworthy is the float biplane on her amidships catapult.

Merryweather - S/T. 1969
Cool psych-blues-rock debut from Neil Merryweather. Pretty consistent and blues-rock’n throughout with some psych influences. His album after this is great too featuring Jon Richardson from Nucleus on guitar. He went on to make some awesome heavy psych space rock glam stuff as Neil Merryweather and the Space Rangers. During this time Neil also played in Mama Lion with Lynn Carey, Ivar Avenue Reunion and heavy cruiser. The guy contributed to a lot of great stuff in a short time.

The Pensacola class cruisers USS Salt Lake City (CA-25) and USS Pensacola (CA-24) tied up alongside USS New Orleans (CA-32), a more modern cruiser design.
Due to their light armor, the Pensacola class cruisers were originally classified as light cruisers. However, they were reclassified due to international standards that stated any cruiser with guns larger than 6" was a heavy cruiser.

The aircraft in the foreground is one of the scouts from one of Haguro’s sisters, Nachi; codenamed Dave by the Allies during WWII, this was a Nakajima E8N Type 95. The E8N was successful in both recon and spotting roles against China and during the early engagements against ABDACOM and the Americans in 1941-2 but was mostly out of service by 1943. Nachi and Haguro would participate in the opening hostilities against China during the summer of 1937, a year after this photo was taken.
