Here is a potential German tech tree. The ships in between the columns are ships that cross over to other lines of ships.
Version 3 (Updated German DD line):
Notes on ships:
Von der Tann is reached through gaining exp on the Nassau.
Blücher is reached through the Kolberg.
Moltke can be reached through the Von der Tann or the Blücher.
Gneisenau can be reached by the Bayern, Mackensen, or Lützow (the "pocket battleship").
Bayern can research both L20a and Gneisenau.
The Scheer, Von Monts, Thüringen are 3 battle-cruiser that need to be designed, possibly modified H-designs.
For those who are wondering, I chose the Moltke at T4 since it is almost like the Kaiser but with 11 inch guns instead. The Blücher at T4 was based off some other discussion I had. She would also be similar to the Molotov by mounting higher-tier (Yorck) guns.
Thoughts, suggestions, and anything of that sort?
