Aeronef Naming Conventions

Postby Tas » Fri Oct 14, 2005 12:20 pm

A Random and idle thought:

We are labelling Aeronefs by classes that technically didnt exist even in the surface fleets of the period!

Frigate is an old term, as is Battleship (from Line of Battle Ship), and the term Cruiser (from Cruising Ships) was coined mid 19th Century, but the term Destroyer was not in use . Indeed the first Torpedo Boat Destroyer (from which the term Detsroyer is derived) was not even built until 1893 and the term did not come into regular use until the turn of the century.

You can see more on that here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Destroyer

And some other related pages:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battleship
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battlecruiser
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cruiser
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frigate

Not that I want to change anything, I just found it an interesting historical fact!

And don't forget the torpedo ram, Tas! And 'aircraft carrier' would be an anachronism too.

It'a a fair point, I must concede. In fact 'Dreadnought' wouldn't be a valid term until 1906 (there were ships called Dreadnought before then but the 1906 version was the one that coined the term 'Dreadnought Battleship').

Unless Dreadnought came earlier as a radical new Aeronef design!

Good point V! And add Battlecruiser to the list of later class descriptions too.

Mind you, Aeronef wasnt exactly a common term used in the period either! :D

The spar torpedo vessel is OK - spar torpedo boats were used in the ACW weren't they ?
