    Kind of blind they would be since their GPS system would be useless without any satelitte in the sky!

    Even a nuclear powered sub couldn't do the job as it can't carry an infinite amount of ammo.

    They didn't have GPS in WW2 and we are talking about a WW2 style battleship, right?

    Such BS.

    This fantasy scenario is ultimately the wet dream of a bunch of elites thinking they can sustain a war against the world wide plebes.

    They're in for a rude awakening.

    Yes, they wouldn't have infinite ammo. (That was just posted for fun.)

    And neither would the battleship have infinite ammo, but the fleet would not be infinite either as someone seemed to allude to.

    If there were a reasonable amount of maneuvering room, no wooden fleet is going to stop that battleship.

    They wouldn't need so much ammo for the big guns either, and I bet they can hold an awful lot of rounds for the smaller guns.

    Thx
    Thanks from The Man

    Well that was uncalled for...

    I mean, I didn't bring up the Maginot Line, did I?

    Well you just did, but as I'm not a nationalist it's like water on a duck's back,
