  1. she was but deserves to be in the commonwealth tree because she was literally paid for by the Malayan Government at that time and also she won't look like Warspite as Malaya still kept her bridge from WW1 and did not go through the same rebuilds that Valiant, Queen Elizabeth and Warspite received
  2. you forgot about the HMS Malaya
  3. Actually there is support from the NZ players who play this game that HMS New Zealand does appear in game
  4. Not true, they actually did serve with the Royal Navy and also their respective Governments at that time paid for their construction as well
  5. I have been pondering about this lately since Perth has been only ship released for the Commonwealth Navy in World of Warships, I have been wondering if it is possible to have a Commonwealth Battleship Line, here are the potential candidates: HMAS Australia (1911) Indefatigable Class Battlecruiser (T3?) HMAS Australia was one of three Indefatigable-class battlecruisers built for the defence of the British Empire. Ordered by the Australian government in 1909, she was launched in 1911, and commissioned as flagship of the fledgling Royal Australian Navy (RAN) in 1913. Australia was the only capital ship ever to serve in the RAN.[A] At the start of World War I, Australia was tasked with finding and destroying the German East Asia Squadron, which was prompted to withdraw from the Pacific by the battlecruiser's presence. Repeated diversions to support the capture of German colonies in New Guinea and Samoa, as well as an overcautious Admiralty, prevented the battlecruiser from engaging the German squadron before the latter's destruction. Australia was then assigned to North Sea operations, which consisted primarily of patrols and exercises, until the end of the war. During this time, Australia was involved in early attempts at naval aviation, and 11 of her personnel participated in the Zeebrugge Raid. The battlecruiser was not at the Battle of Jutland, as she was undergoing repairs following a collision with sister ship HMS New Zealand. Australia only ever fired in anger twice: at a German merchant vessel in January 1915, and at a suspected submarine contact in December 1917. On her return to Australian waters, several sailors aboard the warship mutinied after a request for an extra day's leave in Fremantle was denied, although other issues played a part in the mutiny, including minimal leave during the war, problems with pay, and the perception that Royal Navy personnel were more likely to receive promotions than Australian sailors. Post-war budget cuts saw Australia's role downgraded to a training ship before she was placed in reserve in 1921. The disarmament provisions of the Washington Naval Treaty required the destruction of Australia as part of the British Empire's commitment, and she was scuttled off Sydney Heads in 1924. General characteristics Class and type: Indefatigable-class battlecruiser Displacement: 18,500 long tons (18,800 t) at load 22,130 long tons (22,490 t) at deep load Length: 590 ft (179.8 m) Beam: 80 ft (24.4 m) Draught: 30 ft 4 in (9.2 m) at maximum Installed power: 44,000 shp (32,811 kW) Propulsion: Four-shaft Parsons direct-drive steam turbines, 31 Babcock & Wilcox boilers Speed: 25 knots (46 km/h; 29 mph) Range: 6,690 nautical miles (12,390 km; 7,700 mi) at 10 knots (19 km/h; 12 mph) Complement: 820 Armament: 4 × 2 – BL 12-inch Mk X guns 16 × 1 – BL 4-inch Mk VII guns 2 × 1 – submerged 18-inch torpedo tubes Armour: Belt: 4–6 in (102–152 mm) Decks: 1.5–2.5 in (38–64 mm) Barbettes: 7 in (178 mm) Turrets: 7 in (178 mm) Conning tower: 4–10 in (102–254 mm) Torpedo bulkheads: 2.5 in (64 mm) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMAS_Australia_(1911) HMS New Zealand (1911) (T3?): HMS New Zealand was one of three Indefatigable-class battlecruisers built for the defence of the British Empire. Launched in 1911, the ship was funded by the government of New Zealand as a gift to Britain,[2] and she was commissioned into the Royal Navy in 1912. She had been intended for the China Station, but was released by the New Zealand government at the request of the Admiralty for service in British waters. During 1913, New Zealand was sent on a ten-month tour of the British Dominions, with an emphasis on a visit to her namesake nation. She was back in British waters at the start of World War I, and operated as part of the Royal Navy's Grand Fleet, in opposition to the German High Seas Fleet. During the war, the battlecruiser participated in all three of the major North Sea battles—Heligoland Bight, Dogger Bank, and Jutland—and was involved in the response to the inconclusive Raid on Scarborough, and the Second Battle of Heligoland Bight. New Zealand contributed to the destruction of two cruisers during her wartime service and was hit by enemy fire only once, sustaining no casualties; her status as a "lucky ship" was attributed by the crew to a Māori piupiu (warrior's skirt) and hei-tiki (pendant) worn by the captain during battle. After the war, New Zealand was sent on a second world tour, this time to allow Admiral John Jellicoe to review the naval defences of the Dominions. In 1920, the battlecruiser was placed in reserve. She was broken up for scrap in 1922 in order to meet Britain's tonnage limit in the disarmament provisions of the Washington Naval Treaty.

Almirante Latorre, named after Juan José Latorre, was a super-dreadnought battleship built for the Chilean Navy (Armada de Chile). She was the first of a planned two-ship class that would respond to earlier warship purchases by other South American countries. Construction began at Elswick, Newcastle upon Tyne soon after the ship was ordered in November 1911, and was approaching completion when she was bought by the United Kingdom's Royal Navy for use in the First World War. Commissioned in September 1915, she served in the Grand Fleet as HMS Canada for the duration of the war and saw action during the Battle of Jutland. Chile repurchased Canada in 1920. She took back her original name of Almirante Latorre, and served as the Chilean flagship and frequently as presidential transport. She underwent a thorough modernization in the United Kingdom in 1929–1931. General characteristics Class and type: Almirante Latorre-class battleship Displacement: 25,000 long tons (25,401 t) standard 32,000 long tons (32,514 t) full load Length: 625 ft (191 m) Beam: 92.5 ft (28.2 m) Draught: 33 ft (10 m) Propulsion: 21 Yarrow boilers Low pressure Parsons and High pressure Brown-Curtis steam turbines 37,000 shp (27,591 kW) Coal and oil fuel Speed: 22.75 knots (42.13 km/h; 26.18 mph) Complement: 834 officers and men Armament: 10 × 14 in (356 mm)/45 caliber BL guns 16 × 6 in (152 mm) guns 2 × 3 in (76 mm) anti-aircraft guns 4 × 47 mm (1.9 in) guns 4 × 21 inch (533 mm) torpedo tubes (submerged) Armor: Belt: 9 in (230 mm) Deck: 1.5 in (38 mm) Barbette: 10 in (250 mm) Turret: 10 in (250 mm) Conning tower: 11 in (280 mm) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chilean_battleship_Almirante_Latorre HMS Malaya 1916 (T6?): As built Hull A 1920s post modernization until scrapping in 1948 at Metal Industries in Faslane Scotland (Hull B): Malaya was built by Sir W. G. Armstrong Whitworth and Company at High Walker and launched in March 1915. She was named in honour of the Federated Malay States in British Malaya, whose government paid for her construction. She served in Rear-Admiral Hugh Evan-Thomas's 5th Battle Squadron of the Grand Fleet. She took part in the Battle of Jutland, on 31 May 1916,[7] where she was hit eight times and took major damage and heavy crew casualties. A total of 65 men died, in the battle or later of their injuries. Among the wounded was Able Seaman Willie Vicarage, notable as one of the first men to receive facial reconstruction using plastic surgery and the first to receive radical reconstruction via the "tubed pedicule" technique pioneered by Sir Harold Gillies.[8] Uniquely among the ships at the battle, HMS Malaya flew the red-white-black-yellow ensign of the Federated Malay States.
