Once Wolf Pack operations began in earnest, the U-boats inflicted heavy losses until the allies developed new technology to counter the threat. Tonnage figures skyrocketed, and soon reached an all time high. One of the most famous Wolf Pack attacks took place between the nights of October 16th to the 19th, 1940. Convoy SC7 was repeatedly attacked by a pack of seven boats, sinking 20 ships out of 34 in the convoy. The very next night, convoy HX79 was attacked with further losses of 14 ships, making a total of 34 ships in 48 hours. These attacks mounted against the two convoys became to be known as “The Night of the Long Knives”.

Although the idea originated as early as World War One, but many shortcomings prevented the implementation of this tactic. First, U-boats were dispersed far out across the oceans and Germany lacked the powerful radio transmitters needed to communicate with the boats. Second, there was no governing body which was needed to co-ordinate the attacks. And most importantly, the U-boat force lacked a powerful and charismatic figure with sufficient foresight to develop these strategies. After the First World War, and after Donitz had been appointed as commander of the U-boat Force, he had refined the Wolf Pack strategy and worked out the theoretical elements.

The Messerschmitt Bf 110, often (erroneously) called Me 110,[2] was a twin-engine heavy fighter (Zerstörer—German for "Destroyer") in the service of the Luftwaffe during World War II. Hermann Göring was a proponent of the Bf 110, and nicknamed it his Eisenseiten ("Ironsides").[3] Development work on an improved type to replace the Bf 110, the Messerschmitt Me 210 began before the war started, but its teething troubles resulted in the Bf 110 soldiering on until the end of the war in various roles, alongside its replacements, the Me 210 and the Me 410.
The Bf 110 served with success in the early campaigns, the Polish, Norwegian and Battle of France. The Bf 110's lack of agility in the air was its primary weakness. This flaw was exposed during the Battle of Britain, when some Bf 110-equipped units were withdrawn from the battle after very heavy losses and redeployed as night fighters, a role to which the aircraft was well suited. The Bf 110 enjoyed a successful period following the Battle of Britain as an air superiority fighter and strike aircraft in other theatres. During the Balkans Campaign, North African Campaign and on the Eastern Front, it rendered valuable ground support to the German Army as a potent fighter-bomber (Jagdbomber or Jabo). Later in the war, it was developed into a formidable night fighter, becoming the major night-fighting aircraft of the Luftwaffe. Most of the German night fighter aces flew the Bf 110 at some point during their combat careers, and the top night fighter ace of all time, Major Heinz-Wolfgang Schnaufer, flew it exclusively and claimed 121 victories in 164 combat missions.[4]

USS Archer-Fish (SS/AGSS-311) was a Balao-class submarine. Archer-Fish is best known for sinking the Japanese Navy’s Aircraft carrier Shinano in November 1944 — the largest warship ever sunk by a submarine. For this achievement, she received a Presidential Unit Citation after World War II. She also received five battle stars during WW II.

The Silent Service comprised less then 1.6% of all US Naval personnel in the Pacific, yet accounting for more then half of all enemy shipping sunk. The final tallies show that of the 10 million tons of military and merchant shipping lost by the Japanese during WW II, US submarines accounted for a total of 54%.

Take the largest battleship hull (Yamato class) and add a steel reinforced flight deck and you have the largest aircraft ever built during WW II. Lesson learned the Japanese Navy realized after Midway that they needed to build more aircraft carriers and not battleships. The Shinano was to be a 3rd battleship of the Yamato class but was changed over to an aircraft carrier after Midway.

IJN Shinano was named after the Shinano province of Japan, this 71,890 ton super battleship (Yamato Class), now converted to the world’s largest aircraft carrier, set sail on her maiden voyage on November 28, 1944, escorted by three destroyers. Her career lasted only (15) day.

With a full-load displacement of 72,000 long tons (73,000 t), Shinano was the largest aircraft carrier ever built, a record she would hold until USS Forrestal with a displacement of 80,000 long tons (81,000 t)—was launched in 1954.

On her way to the safety of the Inland Sea to conduct her sea trials, she was spotted and sunk by the American submarine USS Archer-Fish commanded by Joseph F. Enright, USN.

Rendered in Cinema 4d and edited with photoshop cs6

After a quiet start to the year, on 12 February 1942, No. 303 Squadron participated in the RAF's offensive response to the 'Channel Dash' of the German battleships Scharnhorst and Gneisenau. Led by W/C Rolski, the Polish Wing flew several sorties in bad weather.On 11 April 1942, an aerial gunnery contest was staged within No. 11 Group RAF, and the three competing Polish squadrons— 303, 316 and 315 — took the first three places out of all 22 air squadrons, No. 303 Squadron coming first by a very healthy margin (808 hits), whilst No. 316 Squadron scored 432 hits, with the best British squadron scoring 150 hits.

A closer Look [link]








Flying Tiger ace Edward Franklin Rector was born on 28 September 1916 in Marshall, North Carolina. He grew up there and subsequently entered Catawba College, where he graduated in 1938. joined the Navy in 1939, was accepted for flight training, and graduated at Pensacola with a reserve commission as an ensign in June 1940.

Flying SB2U-2s off the USS Ranger with VB-4 in June 1941, Rector and two other VB-4 pilots were recruited for an "American Volunteer Group" to protect the Chinese "Burma Road" from Japanese attack and were soon on a ship headed for the Far East Assigned to the AVG's second squadron, he participated in the Flying Tigers' first combat on 20 December 1941 and was credited with the AVG's first victory, a Lily bomber downed near Kunming.

Over the next six months, Rector shot down another bomber and two fighters, shared in the destruction of a bomber and observation aircraft, and was credited with a "probable" fighter. When the Flying Tigers were disbanded on 4 July 1942, Vice Squadron Leader Ed Rector was one of five AVG pilots to stay on with the newly-formed 23rd Fighter Group. Promoted to major, he was given command of the 76th Fighter Squadron. He shot down two more fighters while with the 76th, on 25 September 1942, before returning to the United States.

He returned to China in 1945, was promoted to colonel and given command of the 23rd Fighter Group. His last aerial victory came on 2 April 1945. Colonel Rector remained in China following the war, serving with the Military Assistance Advisory Group (MAAG) until Chiang Kai-shek was driven from the mainland in 19 47. He later served in a variety of command and staff positions before retiring from the Air Force in June 1962 to become an aviation and communications consult

Tally record: 10 ½ , one probable.

Decorations: Legion of Merit, Silver Star, Distinguished Flying
Cross, Air Medal, Chinese Order of the White Cloud and
Banner, and British Distinguished Flying Cross

On 4 June 1942, the Hiryu took part in the Battle of Midway. An American carrier-plane attack around 10:25 am disabled IJN carriers Kaga, Soryu and Akagi but left Hiryū untouched.

By 4 pm, Admiral Yamaguchi of the Hiryu decided to launch a third strike against the American carriers at dusk, though at this point in the battle Hiryū had only four air-worthy dive-bombers and five torpedo-planes left. She also retained nineteen of her own Zero fighters on board as well as a further thirteen Zeros on combat air patrol (a composite force left over from the carriers Akagi, Kaga and Sōryū).

While preparing to launch a third strike, Hiryū was attacked at 5:03 pm by 13 SBD Dauntless dive bombers from the Enterprise and hit with four 1000 lb (453.6 kg) bombs, three on the forward flight deck and one on or near the forward elevator . The explosions started fires among the aircraft on the hangar deck. The forward half of the flight deck collapsed into the hangar bay while part of the elevator was hurled against the ship's bridge. Fire and explosion continued to move toward the aft decks were the ship’s aircraft, bombs, fuel and the wooden deck became an inferno.

I have tried to convey the collapsed forward deck and final fires based on sequence of damage based on photos and other references.

Hiryu, though incapable of offensive action, kept moving until about midnight, when flames and explosions finally stopped her engines. She was ordered abandoned and then torpedoed to hasten sinking.

Something that was to my WIP folder for ages...

Flying as Leader of B Flight, 41 Sqn, on 15th August 1940, Pilot Officer Mike Johnson and the rest of his flight found themselves among a mass of Messerschmitt Bf.110s that had been detailed to escort a bomber force of Heinkel He111s on a raid on the North of England. Having made one head-on attack on one of the Bf.110s, Shipman manoeuvred his Spitfire Mk.1 onto the tail of another and fired a long burst into it.

A Dramatically lifting and re-texturing of Anders @ Bazze freeware Ki-84 model colacola.se/expo_ki84.htm i was working for a while...Hope you like it :)

The Nakajima Ki-84 "Hayate" (キ84 疾風"Gale"?) was a single-seat fighter used by the Imperial Japanese Army Air Force in World War II. The Allied reporting name was "Frank"; the Japanese Army designation was Army Type 4 Fighter (四式戦闘機 yon-shiki-sentō-ki?). Featuring excellent performance and high maneuverability, the Ki-84 was considered to be the best Japanese fighter to see large scale operations during World War II.[1] It was able to match any Allied fighter, and to intercept the high-flying B-29 Superfortresses.[2] Its powerful armament (that could include two 30 mm and two 20 mm cannon) increased its lethality.[3] Though hampered by poor production quality in later models, a high-maintenance engine, a landing gear prone to buckle,[2] and lack of experienced pilots above all else, Hayates proved to be fearsome opponents; a total of 3,514 were built
