cpl. 70)

The first Edenton (No. 3696), a cargo ship, was launched 19 November 1918 by Skinner and Eddy Corp., Seattle, Wash.; acquired from the U.S. Shipping Board by the Navy 5 December 1918, converted by Puget Sound Navy Yard, and commissioned 5 December 1918, Lieutenant Commander E. F. Kenney, USNRF, in command.

Edenton sailed for the east coast 11 December 1918 and arrived at New York 27 January 1919. She sailed 19 February to deliver emergency flour for the Food Administration at Spalato and Trieste to alleviate postwar famine. Edenton returned to New Orleans 4 May 1919, was decommissioned there 12 May 1919 and returned to the Shipping Board the same day for disposal.

On 15 February 1956 PC-1077 (q.v.) was assigned the name Edenton.

Edenton : North carolina

Edenton is a beautiful small town located on the coastline of North Carolina, known for its lovely homes and tree-lined streets. It is increasingly the choice of many 55+ boomers looking for a quiet place to retire. The waterfront and the wide main shopping street are exceptionally beautiful. Many of the homes are mansions dating from before the Civil War. The first permanent settlement in North Carolina, Edenton is proud of its history, which includes one of the signers of the Constitution. Residential and the commercial district lead to a picturesque, grassy waterfront that is a favorite spot for residents and tourists alike. The screw-pile (the piles were screwed into the sea bed), square-sided lighthouse (pictured) is historic and worthy of a postcard. Fifty-one women in Edenton, led by Penelope Barker, signed a protest petition agreeing to boycott English tea and other products, in what became known, decades later, as the Edenton Tea Party. The Edenton Tea Party is the first known political action by women in the British American colonies. The population is just under 5,000.

Early Settlement

The Roanoke River Valley of northeastern North Carolina was settled in the early 1700s by colonists who found the valley's fertile bottomlands ideal for large-scale farming. By the late 18th-ccentury, that plantation system had grown so that a society of merchants, craftsmen, wealthy planters, small farmers, freedmen, and enslaved people had been created.

The town of Halifax was founded on the south bank of the Roanoke River in 1760 and quickly became a nucleus for the entire valley. Halifax was a river port, county seat, crossroads, and social center. A farmer's market operated here and inns and taverns did a brisk business. By 1769, Halifax had nearly 60 houses and public buildings.

8 North Carolina Cities That Feel Like Traveling Back In Time

As one of the oldest states in the nation and the first to declare independence from the Crown, North Carolina is loaded with history and stories dating back centuries. Many coastal cities and towns paved the way for early settlers while Scotch-Irish settled in the mountains, instilling their own culture. Today, North Carolinians are treated to a wealth of historic cities and towns where the past is still intact.

As North Carolina's first town and port, Bath was established in 1705 and not much has changed since. Today, it exists a sleepy, innerbanks town that stays quiet most of the year besides an influx of tourists wanting to explore history. Bath even had one notable resident, Edward Teach (AKA Blackbeard) who settled here in 1718. A haven for pirates and parties, Bath is even rumored to be cursed by traveling evangelist George Whitefield. Today, visitors enjoy notable landmarks like St. Thomas Episcopal Church established in 1734, the Parlmer-Marsh House, the Van Der Veer House and Bonner House. Stroll along Bath's Historic District to see all the sights and history.

North Carolina's first Capitol, New Bern is home to the majestic Tryon Palace as well as a number of landmarks that reflect the Swiss heritage. Founded in 1710, it rose to prominence as a popular trading and shipping port and even was visited by George Washington. New Bern is home to a lot of firsts for North Carolina - like the first printing press, public banking institution, book store and postal service. A good place to start a historic tour of New Bern is City Hall. Historic districts like the Ghent and Riverside allow you to see a lot at once. Another must-stop is the Queen Anne style William B. Blades House. Don't forget to finish your trip with an ice cold Pepsi in the place of its invention.

You'll find historic Beaufort on the Inner Banks the 2.7 mile town is surrounded by nearly a mile of water. The town is the third oldest in North Carolina. Its history dates back to Coree Native Americans who referred to the land as "Cwarioc," or "Fish Town." European settlers first purchased the land around 1709 and created a thriving town and port. Beaufort also attracted Blackbeard and his former lieutenant Stede Bonnett. Blackbeard was said to frequent the "Hammock House" here. During the 1800s Beaufort transitioned from lively port to thriving city. Street names like Anne, Queen, and Moore (after Colonel Moore) still stand today - nodding to the Revolutionary past. Beaufort is perfect for a mix of history and coastal beauty with historical homes, sights, and also some full-on pirate cruises allowing you to shoot cannon balls at your enemies.

Edenton- AK - History

U.S. Army Transport Irvin L. Hunt , a 6958 gross ton cargo ship, was launched in November 1918 at Seattle, Washington, as the civilian steamship Edenton . When completed in December of that year she was turned over to the Navy and placed in commission as USS Edenton (ID # 3696). After steaming to the East Coast, she crossed the Atlantic in February 1919, taking a cargo of famine-relief flour to Adriatic Sea ports. Edenton arrived at New Orleans, Louisiana early in May 1919, was decommissioned about a week later and returned to the U.S. Shipping Board.

In February 1941 Edenton was taken over by the War Department from the U.S. Maritime Commission and renamed Irvin L. Hunt . She was scheduled for further transfer to the U.S. Navy, and assigned the hull number AK-38, but remained in Army service through the Second World War and for more than a year after the conflict's end. Once the Army's need for her had ended Irvin L. Hunt was returned to the Maritime Commission and again renamed Edenton . She was placed in reserve at Astoria, Oregon, in January 1947, sold in March 1948 and was probably scrapped soon thereafter.

Note: Some sources list the ship's name as Irwin L. Hunt . However, the name Irvin L. Hunt is painted on the ship's bow in the photographs presented below and can be clearly made out in the original prints, though not so clearly in the Online Library's relatively low-resolution images.

The complete weapon system is called A-213-Vympel-A, which comprises the AK-630M Gun Mount, MR-123-02 Fire Control Radar System, and SP-521 Electrical-Optical Tracker. A single MR-123 radar system can simultaneously control two guns, either two 30 mm gun mounts, or two 57 mm gun mounts, or one 30 mm gun and one 57 mm gun. The radar system can engage aerial and surface targets at 4 km and 5 km respectively. The electro-optical system can detect a MiG-21–sized aerial target 7 km away, while torpedo boat–sized surface targets can be detected at a range of up to 70 km. Features include surveillance and tracking modes, high jamming immunity, laser range finder and TV optical sight. It is in operation on almost all Russian Navy ships from fast attack boats to the Kirov battlecruiser.

The gun mount is fully automated, and can also be remotely controlled by an operator from either the control console or via a remotely mounted gunsight. It has a higher firing rate than both the Goalkeeper and Phalanx (Block 1 and older) CIWS models. They are often mounted in pairs, with as many as four pairs mounted on the larger ships, providing an effective point defence (last) layer. However, like all gun-based CIWS, they suffer from short engagement times and the need for multiple volleys to effectively eradicate a threat.

The AK-630 CIWS is composed of several members and sometimes the Kashtan CIWS's sub-systems and its derivatives are also included.

AK-630 Edit

The design of the AK-630 CIWS was initiated in 1963, with the first operational prototype completed in 1964. Trials of the complete system, including radar and controls went on until 1976 when the system was accepted for service. [12]

AK-630M Edit

During the deployment of the system, numerous problems that did not appear in trials were exposed in its application, and some modification of the original AK-630 was made to correct these problems, and in 1979, the new system was named as AK-630M and was accepted into service.

AK-306 Edit

A derivative of AK-630M was developed for light craft and this system was named as AK-306. Externally, the air-cooled AK-306 can be distinguished from the AK-630 by the absence of the water cooling system (a cylindrical jacket that surrounds the barrel cluster of the AK-630). Internally, the AK-306 (A-219) used electricity to power the automatics, instead of using the exhaust. This version also lacked radar control, being only optically guided, hence making it less of an anti-missile weapon and more of a surface-to-surface weapon, and the designation of the overall system is consequently changed from A-213-Vympel-A to A-219. The design started in 1974 and the system was accepted into service in 1980. When production was completed in 1986, 125 systems were in service. [13]

AK-630M1-2 Edit

In 1983, a decision was made to update the design and modify the AK-630 system to include a second gun mounted above the first, which provides 10,000 rpm in total. The AK-630M1-2 "Roy" was roughly the same size and weight allowing installation in existing AK-630 mounts. Though the system proved to be successful, the AK-630M1-2 Roy was not accepted for production due to the maturity of a combined missile and gun system, then designated the 3M87 Kortik, but later called Kashtan. The single example of AK-630M1-2 Roy remains installed on the Project 206.6 class missile boat # P-44.

AK-630M2 Edit

In July 2007 at IMDS-2007, a modernized version of the AK-630M1-2 called AK-630M2 with two AO-18KD rotary cannons was showcased by OAO AK Tulamashzavod under the new name "Duet". Visually "Duet" differs from "Roy" in having a new mount with a stealthy low RCS design compared with the more traditional rounded AK-630 mounts. [14]

In 2012 it was announced that the new Ivan Gren-class landing ship would be armed with the modified AK-630M2 system. [15] It is also used by the Buyan-M-class missile corvette. [16]

H/PJ-13 Edit

H/PJ-13 is the Chinese upgraded version of AK-630M. The most obvious visual difference between AK-630 and its Chinese cousin H/PJ-13 is that the latter has a stealth turret. [17] Instead of MP-123-02 fire control radar originally used on AK-630M, a modified version of Type 347 radar is used. [17] The original electro-optical system of AK-630M is also replaced by domestic Chinese system ZGJ-1B, [17] and the fire control system is replaced by domestic Chinese ZFJ-1A fire control system. [17] To improve its anti-missile capability, Chinese have also developed APDS round for H/PJ-13 to supplement/replace the original high explosive round of AK-630M. [17]

Lt. Gen. Mikhail T. Kalashnikov and the AK-47: Half an Obituary

Lt. Gen. Mikhail T. Kalashnikov, the designer of the AK-47, the world’s most popular machine gun among soldiers, mercenaries and militiamen–and one of the world’s deadliest weapons–died on Monday, Dec. 23, in Izhevsk, in east-central Russia, at age 94. Kalashnikov was frequently promoted and propagandized by the Red Army and the Soviet Union as a hero, using his weapon as a symbol of Soviet power, and since 1991, of what remains of Russian power. The brief history of the weapon below appeared in March 2012 as a backgrounder to a local homicide involving an AK-47 and another incident in Jacksonville involving the weapon. You can read fuller obituaries of Mikhail Kalashnikov here, here, here, here and here.

It was an AK-47, remember, that William Merrill was allegedly playing with when he pulled the trigger and killed his wife, Stefanie, in February 2012, in Palm Coast. And now this.

From the Times-Union: “The fired Spanish teacher who killed Episcopal School of Jacksonville head Dale Regan on Tuesday brought with him nearly 100 rounds of ammunition for an AK-47 assault rifle he purchased at a Jacksonville gun show early last month, a police source familiar with the investigation said Wednesday. It’s unlikely anyone will ever know why Shane Schumerth chose Regan as his only target, shooting her as many as 10 times before killing himself, the source said. Investigators have yet to find a note or other indication as to Schumerth’s motive, said the source, who has not been authorized to speak publicly about the case.”

The AK-47 was approved for general use by the Soviet military by Josef Stalin in 1947 (hence the 47). It’s the invention of Mikhail T. Kalashnikov (born in 1919, still alive as of 2012), hence the K. The A stands for Automatic. Avtomat Kalashnikov, to be precise. From The Times on Nov. 11, 2004: “The story that surrounds General Kalashnikov reads like Soviet legend, the tale of the archetypical proletarian man. He was the uneducated son of peasants who became a sergeant assigned to a tank, was injured in World War II in battle against the Nazis and then labored through countless nights – first in his hospital bed, later in secret institutes – to create weapons for the masses. In 1947, one of his prototypes won a state competition and was selected for mass production. It was given a mundane designation: AK-47, an abbreviation for “automatic by Kalashnikov,” followed by the year of its selection. The abbreviation would in time enter martial lexicon.”
