N News: Big D shows off her 'massive potential' to the Big E

Discussion in 'The Fleet' started by soleil, Oct 21, 2010.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Good article but needs minor amendment:

    Ooops. Semper hic erro.

    Comes from juggling writing four stories simultaneously late at night...
     
  3. "Bid D"? Makes her sound like a bloody peanut!

    I know exactly what you mean. :)

    (But the original version was far more spectacular!)

    Just an aside on the type 45s have they all , got an allocated ships helicopter, and a ships flight crew???? embarked or dissembarked??? or is it another..... sometime, maybe, :roll: in the future story.

    "Daring’s anti-air missile system can defend the task group with Sea Viper missiles for at least 60 miles in all directions."

    That'll be the one that only Dauntless has at the moment, then...?

    Read the article again, it say "shows off her massive potential" not her ability.

    I had the potential to be a porn star, unfortunately not the ability :oops:
     
  9. Re: N News: Big D shows off her 'massive potential' to the B

    I stand corrected, bit of a blonde moment.

    Looking forward to your article, WreckerL !
     
  10. Re: N News: Big D shows off her 'massive potential' to the B

    And, like Daring, not the equipment :D
     
  11. Re: N News: Big D shows off her 'massive potential' to the B

    Scouse, I believe that no Lynx flights are now "dedicated" to a Ship, they just hop from one to the other as required by HQ (perhaps a SSF member could confirm this?).

    Merlin flights are dedicated to T23s.
     
  12. Re: N News: Big D shows off her 'massive potential' to the B

    I think the official phrase is "fitted for but not with" :(
     
  13. Re: N News: Big D shows off her 'massive potential' to the B

    She has got a couple of stern looking chiefs who can growl at the enemy though...
     
  14. Armed Forces Sausages could be hurled as a last resort weapon. Brrr, nasty things
     
  15. Buzz going round that Daring went tits over the pond. Anyone got any up to date news on her?

    Semper Strenuissima

    One should never underestimate the impotence of proof-reading everything that is published... :wink:
     
  18. Re: N News: Big D shows off her 'massive potential' to the B

    Indeed. Four pairs of eyes read NN before it goes to press and still typos appear... or there are missing words...

    It's only when we produce the audio edition for the blind that we realise just how clunky some of the sentences are (especially mine... a love of subordinate clauses is not necessarily a good thing :lol: )
     
  19. Re: N News: Big D shows off her 'massive potential' to the B

    I have a gut feeling that you speak German, Asst Ed, and I think that this influences your affinity with the subordinate clause in English ..........

    By the way, one of the great joys for me personally is the titling of Navy News' articles - I'm still amazed by "Gaudi, Partners .......", about a ship's visit to Barcelona!

    :)
