FDR, arguable one of the best presidents of all time. Known for his program "The New Deal" and other such accomplishments, what is not not known is his many victories in battle against many different types of enemies. FDR possessed great power and technology as can be seen from his transforming wheel chair in which he slayed many foes.

Originally it was considered desecration of the flag to use the flag for monetary gain or political purposes. Conservatives politicize the flag, make money off of the flag, and use the flag as clothing more than any other group in the US, including flag burning terrorists and radicals. I consider this to be desecration of the flag. Quote from Justice William Rehnquist's dissent, Texas v. Johnson, 491 U.S. 397 (1989)

I saw a sticker that read "REPUBLICAN: because not everyone can be on welfare" and I found it completely misleading. For a conservative to assume that there are no employed Liberals? How blatantly ignorant or intentionally erroneous. This is my response.

This is a 2.2k long battlecruiser I did around easter 2010.
It's another variation on the central core config, with 52 turrets, and four 90X45m docking bays. This was the last central core warship I did before I went on to stations and other stuff.

Excerpt from Tanks of World War II

M4A5 Super Sherman

Country: United States
Crew: 4
Armament: 1x M105 105mm
1x .30 caliber 1919A4 Coaxial MG
1x .50 caliber M2 HMG

Prior to the arrival of Admiral Kolhammer’s task force in June 1942, the M4 Sherman was meant to serve as the mainstay of the U.S. tank force. If things had proceeded as normal, the Sherman would have become the tank of the Western Allies. The original Sherman was armed with a lower velocity 75mm gun more useful in an infantry support role rather than going head to head with enemy tanks. Another weakness of the M4 was its thin armor. Even before discussions began between the U.S. Army and experts from the 21st Century it was know the Sherman could not stand up to the powerful and fast 75mm and 88mm shells used by the Germans. Finally the Sherman had a gasoline engine that would often burn when hit.

The problems with the original M4 models almost led to the tank being scrapped. Not only did uptimers recommend this, many members of the contemporary U.S. tank corps agreed. However by 1942 nearly 30,000 Shermans had been produced. Rather than wasting all that material, it was decided the Sherman would receive ‘Mods’.

Many of the M4s had their originally suspension system removed, to be replaced with the Easy Eight system that would have appeared later in the war. Upgrades to the Sherman’s armor were also made. Appliqué armor was added to the sides, forward slope, and turret. The front armor received a sharper slope to better deal with anti-tank shells. Advanced lightweight 21st Century composites were also added to protect the crew and engine compartments. Some M4s also received a layer of Kevlar to catch shrapnel fragments if a shell did penetrate. Nearly every Sherman in Europe had Slat Armor. The simple metal rods arranged like a cage proved effective against HEAT warheads found in the German Panzerfaust, Panzersherks, and wire guided missiles. A diesel engine eliminated the fire threat posed by the original Sherman.

Armament was one of the first things upgraded. Debate raged between uptimers and contemporary personnel over whether to arm the Sherman with the longer barreled high velocity 76mm or a powerful 105mm gun based on an uptime French design. Intelligence on new German Panzers being produced (the monstrous Tiger IIs and Leopards) ended the debate. The Sherman’s turret was redesigned to accommodate the American copy of the French 105mm (To uptimers the French gun was designated CN 105 F1). With the addition of more armor to the front of the M4 , the bow mounted machinegun was eliminated. A .30 caliber machinegun was coaxially mounted with the main gun. AT (advance technology) stabilization and sights were added to many Shermans prior to the invasion of Europe.

Although no longer the principle Allied tank, the Super Sherman could be found fighting along side with the Pershing and Centurion tanks (two of the Allies heavier tanks). The first Super Shermans got their combat test in the Pas de Calais Specially modified M4A5s were part of the D-Day landing forces. Their 105mm guns pounded German bunkers and defenses and helped the infantry fight their way inland. In their first tests against German Panzers, the M4s still had some disadvantages. The Tiger and King Tiger tanks could engage the Sherman at long range. Their APDS rounds could also defeat the modified M4’s armor. However the Tigers lost their complete invincibility to the Sherman’s 105mm gun. Plus even with the changes made the Sherman could still out maneuver the heavier and slower German tanks.

The Super Sherman was also a match for the Soviet T-34s and even their T-55s. Used by Americans in the Japanese Civil War and other allied nations during the Cold War, the Sherman continued to serve till the 1960s. A few working Shermans can be found in military museums and private collections around the world.

.........................

This Sherman is based on the M4 as it appears in John Birmingham's novel Final Impact. An alternate history novel where an American and Allied naval Task Force is sent from 2021 to 1942. A series of novels Final Impact conculdes the trilogy and features D-Day and the battle for Europe. The above part is supposed to be from a book written after the alternate Second World War.

Country of Origin: Empire of Japan
Role: Bomber
Designer: Nakajima
Crew: 2
Other Users: China (captured models)

Armament:
1x Type 120 25mm Cannon
2x Short Range IR AAMs
2,000 ILBs of Ordnance
-Type 6 Kaiten Anti-Ship Missile
-Type 10 1000 ILB Laser Guided Bomb
-Type 5 500 ILB Laser Guided Bomb
-Iron Bombs
-Cluster Bombs/Bomblett Dispenser

The Empire of Japan rolled out the Nakajima B20 series of aircraft in the mid-1960s. Much like the abortive American effort to create a fighter that could be used by both the Navy and Air Force (the F-111 which proved an excellent low level bomber) the B20 was built in both a naval and ground based model. The IJN model was known as the Sea-Wing with the Japanese Air Force calling their model the Sky-Wing. Both versions of the B20 would see combat in the former Dutch East Indies, as the post-colonial government collapsed. Japan moved in to annex the oil rich area in 1967. Sea-Wings flying of Japanese carriers provided strikes against the various factions inside the islands. Some worked, not effectively in a close air support role for Imperial Marines during the campaign. Losses were light for the naval Sea-Wings.

Initially the Sea-Wing was armed with conventional free fall iron bombs and rocket pods. However the start of World War III heralded a new generation of increasing accurate precision weapons. As America, the Soviets, and Europeans all retooled their aircraft and tactics to incorporate these, Japan found itself falling behind. Through various methods, legally and illegally, the Japanese military industry acquired various samples of new precision guided munitions (PGM). Using their own technology the Japanese arms makers were able to produce their first laser guided bomb shortly before the end of the Third World War.

This new generation of weaponry required upgrades to be made to the Sea/Sky-Wing fleet. A laser targeting pod with thermal and LLAMPS abilities was equipped to most of the precision strike units inside the IJN. New surface search and ground scanning radars were built into the B20Ns. The ground scanning radar allowed the Sea-Wing to fly dangerous nap of the Earth attack missions. These upgrades made the B20N an all-weather day or night bomber. By the late 1980s the upgraded Sea-Wing fleet could also carry large bomblett dispersing pods on their centerline hard-point (a copy of the European Tornado’s). Two Type 6 anti-ships missiles could be carried by the Sea-Wing for naval strike roles.

The major combat test for the Sea-Wing came when the Imperial government decided to go to war with the Russian Republic in 1990. As part of their surprise attack, Sea-Wings launched from the Giga carriers in the Sea of Japan to bomb the airfields up and down the Russian Pacific coast and Russian Pacific Fleet bases. Covered by Tengu fighters the Sea-Wings devastated the Russian Air Force bases, using runway cratering weapons and taking out hardened shelters with LGBs. As long as Japanese aircraft controlled the skies, the B20N operated quite effectively against the Russian forces in the Far East. However the Sea-Wing proved less effective when deployed in contested air environments. Designed as a bomber, the Sea-Wing had no real dogfighting ability requiring escorting fighters or a low level approach.

When the war expanded to include the United States of America, the IJN found itself up against an equal opponent. B20Ns and Air Force B20s took heavy losses when attacking American and Allied targets during the war. The heaviest losses and most specular success for the Sea-Wings came during the Battle of Guam. Admiral Shirada led four Giga carriers in an effort to destroy the American 7th Fleet and force the U.S. into negotiations to end the war in the Pacific. The first battle of super-carriers, the Carrier Strike Force launched a massive attack against the USN carriers once it was learned they were operating southeast of Guam.

Nearly one hundred IJN aircraft battled against the USN fighter screen and fought through the Ticonderoga air defense cruisers and their Burke class destroyer counterparts. Ten Sea-Wings managed to launch their ASMs and severally damage the carrier Hornet. Several more American cruisers and destroyers were sunk as well. The losses among the Japanese planes were heavy, over sixty percent. Much worse was the surviving pilots found that while they attacked the Americans, a USN strike against their own carriers had led to the destruction of two of their own carriers. As the battle continued the remaining Sea-Wings managed to sink the damaged Hornet, but the Combined Fleet lost another carrier.

Many of the remaining Sea-Wings for the rest of the war were based on land with their Air Force counterparts. Another distinction of the B20N was it was one of the first aircraft used in suicide operations against the Allied fleets. Kamikaze attacks were first launched by a Sea-Wing unit based in Formosa against the Enterprise carrier group, supporting the battle for the Philippines. Sixty aircraft among them twenty B20Ns loaded with explosives penetrated the carrier group’s defenses and sank six ships. A Sea-Wing speared into the side of the Enterprise knocking it out of the war for several months.

All the remaining Sea-Wings not in Japanese Defense Force hands are used by the Republic of China. Most were captured in the last few days of the war.

Naginata Cruiser

Country of Origin: Empire of Japan
Builder: Kure Naval Arsenal-IHI Corporation
Crew: 350

Armament:

1x 127mm Multipurpose Cannon
Type 20 Funryu SAM (30x Bow VLS, 60x Aft VLS)
Type 15 Kaiten Anti-Ship SSM (5x Bow VLS, 5x Aft VLS)
Type 4 Land Attack Missiles (5x Bow VLS, 5x Aft VLS)

6x Type 10 Shinya Anti-Ship Torpedoes
6x Type 5 Anti-Submarine Torpedoes
4x 20mm CIWS (two guns per system, bow and aft)

Aircraft: 2x Ku-55 Helicopter

During the Third World War the era of big gunned and armored ships was done with. Japan which had stayed neutral during the conflict between the USSR and Allies, watched the large naval battles in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Engagements were fought over the horizon with guided missiles and strikes by carrier aircraft carrying more missiles. IJN intelligence staffs studied the carrier operations of the Americans and their European Allies, plus the Soviet efforts to destroy carriers. A massive report was prepared for the commanders of the Combined Fleet and then the head of the IJN. Recommendations were made on improvements and new weapons that would be needed by the Combined Fleet.

One of the first of these new weapons was the Naginata missile cruiser. Japan had been experimenting with missile armed ships during World War III but had not built a dedicated warship designed with that in mind. The Naginata would have the same role as the American Ticonderoga Aegis Cruisers plus an additional surface strike role. A late minute addition to the cruiser’s design was that of low observable technology. The success of American ‘stealth’ platforms in the last stages of World War III had revealed how powerful such technology could be. Although not a true stealth design the Naginata would be harder to find on surface search radar.

The first duty of the Naginata was air defense. To achieve this, the Japanese created their version of the Aegis combat system, the Kami radar and Type 20 Funryu SAM. A phased radar system it allowed for a full automatic mode to defend the Imperial Fleet’s carrier striking groups from mass air and missile attacks. Offensive fire power came from the ten Kaiten anti-ship missiles. A clone of the American Harpoon, it allowed IJN ships to attack others up to 90 miles away. In the tradition of the IJN the Naginata retained anti-ship torpedoes, the Shinya. Anti-submarine warfare was conducted with the ship’s sonar systems and two Ku-55 Helicopters. These helicopters could scout for the ship and attack submarine or surface targets with ASW torpedoes and SSMs.

By 1990 tensions in the Pacific were at an all time high. The Empire of Japan was suffering economic difficulties with the United States and Europeans. Both sides had begun to buy more of their goods from the growing economic powerhouse that was the Republic of China. After years of corruption and turmoil the ROC had finally managed to get its house in order. Now the Chinese were able to offer many of the goods and services that Japan had, for lower value. At the same time Japan’s industries and more importantly the military demanded more oil and resources. An ample supply of these items lay in Siberia. Oil and mineral fields discovered there by the Russians had helped revitalize their economy.

Prince Tatsu along with War Minster Yamata convinced Emperor Yoshiro that it was time for Japan to assume its place as the premier superpower over the Americans and Europeans. They purposed taking the riches in Siberia from the Russians and then using these resources to eventually make them the sole owners of the Pacific Ocean. The Emperor agreed and the Pacific War began on June 22, 1990. Some of the first shots of the war were fired by Naginata cruisers, cruise missiles against Russian airfields and bases in the Far East.

The Naginatas in the opening months of the Pacific War screened the Combined Fleet as its aircraft and amphibious forces assaulted Siberia and the Kutwang Army Group moved into Siberia. The Russian forces a shadow of their former selves were unable to mount effective resistance. Air and naval strikes destroyed the Russian Pacific Fleet, except for its submarines. Mostly the Naginata ships defended against the occasional air attack and conducted ASW sweeps with other IJN destroyers and frigates. The ships would see more action as the war expanded.

America and Europe had no wish to see Japan steal the Siberian resources from the Russians. As a result both began to offer covert assistance to the Russians. US naval forces conducted increased training and moved more ships into position to cover the IJN forces in the western and southern Pacific. Tokyo was upset at the covert support and American positioning. Prince Tatsu said it was time to drive the Americans from the Pacific once and for all. He and the military drafted plans to invade the Philippines (ending the one hole that existed in the Empire) and destroy American naval power. They would take the Northern Marianas Islands then engage and defeat the USN. Washington seeing its forces humbled and looking at a long bloody battle to retake the Pacific would acquiesce to the New World Order.

Japan’s decision to expand the war resulted in the largest series of naval battles the world had ever seen. Naginata cruisers led the attack on the Philippines and a Japanese surface group was responsible for the devastation inflicted upon the Australian Navy in the First Battle of the Coral Sea. Despite the success the Japanese achieved in the opening stages of the war, they were now at war with the United States and European Alliance. America had more naval warfare experience than the IJN.

Based on wargames against their own Aegis platforms, the USN knew the best way to take down phased radar platforms like the Naginata. Submarines were often best, and air attacks using HARM missiles and drones also worked. The Naginatas were not invincible and thus could not make the Japanese carrier strike groups invulnerable. Of the thirty Naginata cruisers built by Japan, twenty-five were sunk during the course of the war. They fought in every major engagement, The First Coral Sea, Philippines Campaign, The Battle of Guam, Second Coral Sea, and the Home Islands. The remaining Naginatas now serve in the Japanese Republic’s Navy.

Alright this is the first Japanese combatant from Red Alert 3. Just so you all know my version of Red Alert 3 lacks the craziness that occurs in the game. No time travel is involved and this in fact occurs after Red Alert and RA2. The Empire of the Rising Sun is just the Empire of Japan. Since WWII was fought against the USSR in RA, the Empire never falls. Thus leading to a modern Pacific War fought in the early 1990s. (For more on this TL check out my RA3 Map in the gallery!)

The Naginata is based on the modern Japanese Self-Defense Force Kongo destroyers and modern warships. I’ve created it to be basically the Japanese counterpart to Ticonderoga CCG. Unlike my two Russian RA2 warships I drew this on from scratch! Only piece I used from Shipbucket is some antenna stuff at the top of the Naginata’s mast. You might note I did not copy the standard Aegis billboard radars, I instead to make it look different copied the latest Chinese billboard radars.

Please leave me some feedback in addition to faving, thanks a lot!

I often think about what a different world this would be if America used her incredible wealth and power to relentlessly attack human misery, rather than countries with whom we disagree politically. Call me naive, but a foreign policy based on humanitarianism would serve us much better than one based on realpolitik and the need to serve the corporations and Wall Street.
