Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

One other note I have seen a lot is theme/color related items. I know this is important to all of you but at the moment the most important thing was getting you back a functioning forum with as many features I can get you back from before.

Theme/color is something we can change but it the moment I do not have the time and resources to fix all of the issue and design the site. I did do some theme updates yesterday but it is very time consuming. Please just be patient with the forum as we get it back to as close as I can to what you had before.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

    These are all but useless in a sea battle outside littoral waters. Small missile boats like those are only useful in confined waters where they can hide in background clutter of land.
    This is why ocean going navies rarely build this sort of ship. It's much like PT or MTB boats in WW2. They too are generally useless as combatants and pretty much confined to areas where you are dealing with coastal waters.
    Nanuchka can do a little better with draught slightly more range , maybe like destroyer escorts of WW2
    I doubt the soviet navy would challenge the japanese on the high seas esp not without extensive submarine or support from AVMF regiments

    most likely battlefields for such a scenario would be

    Japanese trying to blockade the soviet naval bases around vladivostock or around the Kuril islands and maybe infiltrate the sea of Okhost.

      How do the 2 compare in 1980s era

      Soviet SAG
      1 Kiev 8 x SSN-12 sandbox
      2 Kyndas 8 x SSN-3 b Shaddock
      2 Sovermenyy 8 x SSN-22
      2 Udaloy no SSM but extensive SAM
      supported by 4 SSN like Victor III or Charlie I/II with type 76 longe range ASUW torpedoes or SSN-7/9


      4 Hatsuyuki class DD + 3 Asagiri class destroyers
      each with 8 x Harpoon
      with ASROC

      supposing neither side has any decisive air support

      IMHO these are the pros and cons of each side

      Modern ASM like Harpoon
      good anti-missile defences like CIWS and sea sparrow

      mixed type of ASM
      Longer ranged high speed ASM like P-500 bazalt and SSN-22 are advanced and former is long range
      SSN-7/9 can be fired by submerged submarines out of range of DD ASROC
      long range SSN-3b is primitive system and kyndas are not well protected with CIWS and SAM

      what do you guys think ? which one will win
      The Russians. The Japanese haven't engaged in combat since 1945 and their entire military philosophy is based on home defense, not agression.

      Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes? Who is watching the watchers?

        If we're using that logic, the Japanese. The Russians haven't won a war at sea, or even a serious naval battle in over two centuries...
