AOTF – Naval Annual 1885-1906

This volume of the AOTF Naval Annual series provides nearly 400 pre-formatted, printable ship logs. It covers the many ship classes of the 1885-1906 period for the navies of Argentina, Austria-Hungary, Brazil, Chile, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, and the United States. The ship logs are divided into sections by country, each preceded by summary sheets listing basic information for each of the ship classes included for that country.

The AOTF Naval Annual series is an obvious play on Brassey's & Jane's but with actual ship logs for playing AotF. There will be three volumes in the series: 1885-1906, 1907-1921, and 1922-1944. Covers will be color-coded similar to Conway's (blue, green and red, respectively) and each volume will be comprised of ship logs for each country (alphabetic by country, then ship type, then completion date) preceded by summary pages for each country. A single ship log for each class (using the data of a representative ship of the class for the time period) is provided and for ship classes spanning volumes (i.e. all the WWI-era battleships and cruisers like Hood, Cavour, Pennsylvania, etc.), updated versions will appear in the subsequent volume.

The first two volumes are limited to battleships, battlecruisers, armored cruisers and light cruisers, but the third volume will also contain individual ship logs for classes of destroyers.
