I can‘t see any crane on this type of ships, so how did they retrieve the planes back on to the catapult from the sea alongside?:unsure: anyone have an idea?

That arm on the back of the mast between the launchers is what I suspect is used as a crane for retrieving float planes.

 

hmmm..   where is the arm? I still can't figure out

Aft mast, the long pole just in front is a Derrick, a basic manual crane to recover the aircraft.

 

The pole pivots forward and is controlled by using stays on the port and stbd sides. There will be a winch close by to supply the lift power.

Thats how American retrieve their aircraft.

 

But in Soviet Russian Murmansk, they can just landed in on the catapult :D:D:D

TOGBOAT submarine, characteristics as smae as inWoT, but can only be killed by torps, nice idea:trollface::medal:

 

According to information i able to access it should be hybrid Carrier Battleships you should be able to lunch planes and fire main caliber within the same ships :D:D:D

 

(so WG can gather information for BBV Ise class lol)

see these boats hanging on Omaha, that's where the magic happens...

 

These are people paddling out to recover the airplanes and bring it back to ship. Problem solved :trollface:

 

And for the Murmanska? Well, the pilot on Murmanska land on the launcher like a boss because, WarGaming...
