The Virtual Nitro Class Ammunition Ship 03 Level


The 03 level of the Nitro Class ammunition ship is referred to as the Bridge level. The Pilot house is where the ship is navigated from, orders for speed are passed to the engine room and much more. On either side of the Pilot House are the Bridge Wings. These areas are used extensively when coming in and out of port, docking the ship and during underway replenishments. During UNREPS, communications lines connect the bridges of the ships being replenished. CO to CO communications and other bridge to bridge information are passed along this channel.

On the same level are the Chart room, CIC, Radio Central, Communications Office, Crypto Room, Electronics workrooms, the captain's sea cabin, etc.
