Format: Taschenbuch
Zuerst meine Erwartungshaltung an dieses Buch:
Ich habe eine günstige Alternative zu dem Weyers Flottentaschenbuch oder dem großen JANEs (Printversion meines Wissens eingestellt) gesucht.
Ich möchte schnell Informationen zu Kriegsschiffen erhalten, die ich in See oder auf Veranstaltungen wie den Hamburger Hafentagen oder der Kieler Woche sehe.

Was habe ich bekommen:
An der Verarbeitung des Buches habe ich nichts auszusetzen, so soll es sein.

Komme ich zum Inhalt und Aufbau, den großen Kritikpunkten:

Wer schon einmal unbekannte Kriegsschiffe am Horizont ausgemacht hat, weiß, dass die Bestimmung der Nationalität an Hand der Seeflagge mit die einfachste Möglichkeit ist, den Krieger zuzuordnen, denn die Hull-Number ist meist schwer zu erkennen oder gar nicht aufgebracht. Mit ein bisschen Übung wird man die Nationalität auch an Hand von Merkmalen wie Bug oder Aufbauten erkennen können, aber keinesfalls wird man sofort den Namen der Schiffsklasse parat haben. Und gerade dies ist das Problem: Das Buch ist nach Typ geordnet, also U-Boot, Zerstörer, Fregatte usw. Die Unterordnung erfolgt nach Klassenbezeichnung, zB "Brandenburg" (F123) oder "Sachsen" (F124). Sucht man nun jedoch nach der "Bremen"-Klasse (F122), so wird man nur über Umwege zum Ziel kommen, denn die F122 ist unter der "Kortenaer"-Klasse aufgeführt. Im Index sind die Schiffe der "Bremen"-Klasse einzeln namentlich genannt. Die "Baden-Württemberg"-Klasse (F125) (auch wenn das Buch von 2006 ist, so ist die Konstruktion dieser Klasse schon lange bekannt) sowie die Kategorie der Hilfsschiffe fehlt komplett.

Watts this? 28. April 2006
Von Georgios-ilias Alexiou - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I waited with eagerness for the fourth edition of Jane's Warship Recognition Guide, since from the last one there have been many changes in naval affairs. But when it arrived I was dissapointed. Until now Jane's Warship Recognition Guides were updated to include every new major warship class. Not this one. For example it does not include the new danish Absalon class multipurpose landing ships, the indonesian Tanjung Dalpele LPD, or the new russian Lada class SSK, all in service with their respective navys. It also does not include the new japanese Atago class DDG, or the south korean Dokdo LHD, both of which are only a couple months shy of starting their sea trials. Another dissapointing thing is that there is still a photo of a Typhoon class SSBN in the entry of the Oscar class, as well as the profile of the south african MEKO A200 in the MEKO 360 entry and the profile of the danish Thetis in the estonian Admiral Pitka, has nobody noticed this mistakes for four years in HarperCollins? Then there is the use of 12 profile drawings instead of photos, of which only 3 are of ships still under construction and for the other 9, there are plenty of photos around (just take a look in Jane's Fighting Ships). The last thing I want to point out are the many small photos. I can understand this in the cases where the text covers the rest of the page, but not where it is empty. I hope when this edition is revised, they will fix the above problems, since the rest of the book is very good.

P.S. I don't think that the new CVN21 class supercarriers will be only 255m long

Less Complete, but Smaller, Handier and a Lot Cheaper 26. Juni 2006
Von John Matlock - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Jane's guides have long been the standard book of identifying weapons systems rather they were airplanes, missile systems or ships. And because the books are so big they are expensive to buy. The result has been a series of smaller 'Recognition Guides,' based on the information in the big books. This one is obviously on warships. It's a small format book, only about 5 by 7 inches, and a bit under 400 pages. (In contrast, Jane's Fighting Ships, the big book is 9 by 13 inches, 967 pages and costs $725.)

At present the Navy's of the world are in a period of transition. The threats of the Cold War seem past, and the newer ships reflect having to operate in an anti-terrorist environment rather than a major blue ocean battle. Also stealth technology has been influencing ship design as well. The new ships don't have the cluttered look of the ships of old (where old is not that many years), but have clean lines to reflect radar waves away from the sender rather than back.

This book obviously has to eliminate a lot of the information in the big book, but is a much handier size at a much handier price.

A treasure of information on Warships 1. Juli 2006
Von Francois Bardol - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
In a clear, concise manner, Anthony Watts has written this Book at a pivotal time. A shift is present in all Naval Forces , because of the End of The Cold War , and the rise of new types of conflicts. Due to the enormous amount of information presentd in a simple manner , anyone can understand and compare the need for, the function of and the difference between the various classes of Warships, amongst the World Naval Forces. Why and When a certain class of ship replaces What , becomes clearer and more interesting, due to this brilliant introduction and presentation.

We also get to look at the photos and the classic " black silhouettes " ( profile of ships on the horizon), permitting to ID ships more easily.

A+ and a "plus" for anyone interested in Warships as a Peace time deterrent, or as awesome power in time of War.Francois Bardol
Jane's All the World's Warships, Abridged Edition 3. Dezember 2010
Von Vincent E. Martin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Bottom-Line: If you just want to dabble in the shapes, armaments, and characteristics of the worlds navies, you will not to find a better (cheap) source then Jane's Warship Recognition Guide.

I ran across this book at a local bookstore for the whopping price of $3.99 (used) and couldn't pass it up despite the fact that I have little practical use for it. But Jane's Warship Recognition Guide is small enough (about the size of a regular sized novel) to carry around in a backpack, or store on a desktop for easy access and reference.

There have been major changes in the form and composition of the world's navies since the first edition of this book was published in 1996. Most of this change is due to the replacement of Cold War era warships with newer more capable ships. The U.S. Navy for instance is largely divesting itself of the large 30+ ships the Spruance class destroyer, which are widely considered a failure due to their large size and limited weaponry.

Jane's Warship Recognition Guide gleams all of its technical specifications from the widely acclaimed Jane's Fighting Ships, a reference book that has been published since 1898 and is the acknowledged world premiere naval reference. The new smaller format lacks the in-depth write-up afforded by Jane's Fighting Ships, but the book provides a section on Key Recognition Features in which distinguishing structural features are outlined in a bulleted format. For instance the following is the Key Recognition Features section for the U.S. Navy's Spruance class destroyer:

* High bow, high freeboard, sweeping maindeck aft to break at flight deck.
* 5 in gun mounting on forecastle forward of A/S missile launcher and SSM or VLS tubes (on some).
* Unusually high and long main superstructure giving slab-side impression.
* Large, square section twin funnels just proud of superstructure, each with several exhausts protruding at the top. After funnel offset to starboard.
* Complex lattice foremast supporting various aerials immediately atop bridge roof.
* Large central, lattice mainmast between funnels supporting air search radar aerial.
* Raised flight deck immediately aft of superstructure.
* Sea Sparrow SAM box launcher just aft of the flight deck with 5 in gun mounting (Y position) GDC RAM SAM launcher, starboard side, right aft, being fitted.
* 5 in gun mounting on quarterdeck.

In all Jane's Warship Recognition Guide covers over 200 classes of the world's warships and allows for easy identification and comparison among navies. The book includes detailed line illustrations, hundreds of photos and in addition to the recognition features sections, includes:
* Class and ship names
* Weapon systems and radars
* Full page photographs of every warship
* Detailed line diagrams
* Key recognition features
Jane's Warship Recognition Guide is divided into ship classes with aircraft carriers forming the first chapters. The book then follows in logical flow from carriers to cruisers, to destroyers to frigate and so to the smallest warships and ends with submarines. This is where the logical layout stops, for within the chapters there is no discernable course; the warships while grouped together by country, are not in alphabetical order, nor are the country listings for that matter. With one notable exception, U.S. Navy ships are almost always listed last in the chapter.

This haphazard way of listing warships, while it in no way takes away from the quality of the material presented, makes the guide difficult to follow at times. Almost all of the pictures in Jane's Warship Recognition Guide are in color, and in rare exceptions where the class of warship is either still building or in the planning stage, detailed lines drawings are provided.


All-in-all, I am very please with my little purchase. While Jane's Warship Recognition Guide does not cover the breath of knowledge that it's older brother Jane's Fighting Ships contains, I find the information it does contain quite useful. If you just want to dabble in the shapes, armaments, and characteristics of the worlds navies, you'd be hard pressed to find a better (cheap) source then Jane's Warship Recognition Guide.
I Hope They Never Recognized Me 2. Mai 2010
Von Ahmet Celebiler - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
We have been watching ships passing on the Bosphorus and taking photographs.
We only have an 18x zoom and because the warships usually pass through in hours when the lighting is bad, our shots have not been good.

We bought this book to have an idea about the types of ships and also to see who they would belong to. But discovered that, we could seldom tell and only after we have viewed the photos on large screens and consulted the book, because the photos in the book are not much better than our our amateur shots.

There is no way we will pay for the original Jane's. However, my wife thinks that we can actually compete with the Recognition Guide, at least vis-a-vis the warships we catch on the Bosphorus, from our balcony.

we do not have much variety, but we get visiting French, Italian, US warships frequently and those of some other countries less frequently. Turkish warships, including submarines will also pass through and, about 4-5 times a year stay at anchor for a few days.

Unfortunately, the book has been rather a disappointment as a "recognition guide".

A guide of sorts, but not for recognition. Yet, the paranoid feeling that someone on those ships may be taking our photographs while we are taking theirs hits me every now and then. Then, i say, "Well. if i cannot recognize them even with my book, they could never recognize me! They do not even have a book about me!"
