vossiewulf: MadSkillz: So, they fly until they run out of gas and crash?Grumman F9C Sparrowhawk.
Oldiron_79: ProdigalSigh:They need another Crimson Skies game.
sno man: UNC_Samurai: DMBA quick google turned up nothing other than that joke for the Italian Navy...(Actually one other bad Italian Navy joke about the Admiral needing a glass bottom boat to inspect the fleet.) But it comes up for the German Coast Guard... The Deutscher Marinebund so there's that.
i upped my meds-up yours: Considering that the whole reason the US Navy wanted zeppelins was for scouting an enemy fleet, you would think they'd have been declared obsolete as soon as a few other navies got aircraft carriers, whose planes could easily find the gasbag and shoot it full of holes.
Vodka Zombie: What blows my mind is completely unprepared people were when it came to crossing the freakin Atlantic. Even after a few hundred years, there was never any urge to have lifevests or rafts on anything.
