Warship International

From a small beginning in 1964, this quarterly journal has become internationally recognized as the most authoritative English-language publication in the warship field. Each issue averages 100 pages, with fact-filled articles, mainly but not exclusively the original work of our members. Subjects cover all navies and all types of ships from about 1860 to date, liberally illustrated with photographs which are highly praised for their quality, many of which have rarely been printed before, and with excellent line drawings and plans-a valuable resource for ship modelers. Many issues feature full spread centerfold drawings.tne Warship International feature articles usually cover ships of past ears for two important reasons. The organization seeks to gather and present authoritative information on ship programs, characteristics, and capabilities. Authoritative, complete data on warship characteristics and capability typically is restricted from the public release during a ship's career , and often for long years thereafter. The second concern with treating current naval affairs reflects the national and strategic interests underlying current naval programs. As an international organization, INRO seeks to provide a neutral basis for study of historical matters, providing equal stature for any and all nations' vessels, no matter how large or small, and independent of political considerations influencing their creation and employment. Unlike many "naval" magazines, Warship International does not deal with mercantile vessels, descriptions of battles, or accounts of personal exploits. It concentrates solely on warships of various types, brief summaries of their careers, and related subjects such as the armoring of ships, elements of ballistics, etc., needed for a full understanding of the ship designs. Regular features include:   Ask Infoser, a very popular question and answer section with the answers published for the information of all members;   Naval Intelligence and Naval News in Pictures, containing recent information on new construction, sales, scrappings and the like and photos of new types of ships in the news;  Ship's Library, reviews of recent naval books obtainable through the Book Service;  Mystery Photo, a quarterly challenge to ship identification fans; and  On Target, where for a modest fee, items may be offered or sought.   Past issues have covered all facets of warship designs and types, with emphasis on the smaller, less-known navies and types, and related subjects. The newest types are covered as they appear, but naturally most articles deal with ships no longer in existence. Examples of subjects covered by articles or series are: The Spanish Navy of 1898; Heavy Cruisers of the Imperial Japanese Navy; H.M.S. Hood; articles covering past developments of the Soviet Navy and U.S. Navy; USS Joseph P. Kennedy. Jr.; USS Massachusetts and the Iowa versus the Yamato -- to name just a few. If you are looking for information on iron and steel warships and their appearance, wish to get in touch with other naval hobbyists, or are interested in the general subject of warships, INRO and Warship International are what you have been seeking!
