Before the war, minefields were mostly defensive, laid in home waters, and as such deployed by just about any vessel - merchant ships, old converted cruisers, and the like. Britain used cross-Channel ferries to lay minefields in 1914. However, laying mines in enemy territory was more difficult and needed specialist vessels.For the timeframe of the mod, which types of ships could lay mines?
No. I remember that I read about air strikes that were flown by seaplanes from seaplane carriers. I just think these air strikes were not as effective as later with wheeled aircraft from true aircraft carriers.It's good to see that one from the former mod team is watching the forum. So I think, naval mines will be available as naval brigade. Other naval brigades which possible and fit in this timeframe are Anti-Submarine-Warfare, Fire Control, Improve Armour/Hull and Naval Torpedoes.
Are seaplanes only used for detection?
I think it was even more effective than in WW II, because detection was more dependent on the sailors' eyes than on technical equipment like radar.How about camouflage? I know there was, but I don't know exactly about their development and effectiveness.
Don't know if that's realistic in that timeframeDo you like the idea to import radar as a secret weapon?
Btw. I asked Allenby to send me all sources and materials of this mod - if you don't know it yet, I want to make a AoD-conversion - that could help me. But he seems to be not acitve anymore. Maybe you know where I get these?
P.S.: I would feel honoured if you left some comments and opinions about my work and ideas.
I would be proud to be part of the dev team once again
