Post by Zor on Wed Jun 15, 2016 4:10 am

Forgive me if I am being presumptive but I would like to see some information on Kurokawa's airplanes.

I can't remember: are Japanese fighter monoplanes, or biplanes?

low wing mono planes with wheel pants easily mistaken for an Alliance P-1B or P-1C  Paint green with meat ball not Grik flag.  My scanner is down so could you when you get a hard copy could you post the map & silhouettes on the Wiki?  Taylor might beat you to it on his FB page.  I think my New United States flag will soon be Current Official. Taylor's working on the Republic Flag art.

Hm, I really think that someone would be ahead of me. My hard copy probably wouldn't came until August (never, NEVER EVER trust Russian mail! If there were a russian mail in Destroyermen's world, they would probably send mails from Balkpaan to Java through Holy Dominion and Grik Empire!). But I may try to extract something from digital.

Thanks Alexey the silhouettes for various ships mentioned pages both alliance and enemy would be good.  An image of the bomber can be extracted from the cover art.  Many new Characters.  PS common name now for US mail is "Snail Mail" Wink

(The text is "Sloupochta Rossii", which mean "Russian Slowmail". Or "Russian Slowpoke mail")

They didn't have a Slowpoke for their totem animal for nothing)

Thanks. I got the Audio book version which does not contain the apendix fluff.

You're welcome, no flag in book just description.  Taylor wanted stars in circle rather than the five spot on a die I originally used.  One goof in book so far see Talk Gentaa.
