Just wondering if anyone else here would be interested in starting a trivia game like the one in the armor and a/c forums.
If so, first one to chime in gets to ask the questions.
On the bench:
1/35 Tamiya M26 Pershing-0%
1/144 Minicraft P-38J Lightning-50%
Numerous 1/35 scale figures in various stages if completion.
OK, since no one else is going to stick their neck out, I will. ("Never volunteer ', they said) What carrier was the first to be built with an angled flight deck as part of her original design?
I'm from the government and I'm here to help.
I would say that although USS Midway ran sea trials with an angled-deck, it was not part of original construction. The first carrier built with an angled deck was USS Antietam (CVA 36).
I have one.....what was the very first battleship (any nation) to mount 16" guns???
I believe the first was USS Forrestal CVA-59 keel laid July 1952.

Sorry, you have to answer a question correctly first to ask one.
