    The Battle of Denmark Strait, May 24th 1941

    She was a fine ship. The Birth of a Legend: Ventis Secundis (Latin: "With Favourable Winds") (Ships Motto of HMS Hood)

    The Battle of Denmark Strait, May 24th 1941

    Another Year and another Anniversary of the Battle of the Denmark Straight and the Loss of HMS HOOD is once again upon us. Regardless about how HOOD was exactly lost during the battle, the fact still remains that lost with her were all but 3 of her 1,421 strong ship's company. "They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.At the going down of the sun and in the morningWe will remember them." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fmm22DYp-xY May their memory and that of their ship in which they served never be forgotten.

    HMS Churchill T9 "Super Cruiser" Proposal

    she would more likely be a Tier 10 ship instead of Tier 9.

    The Story of Andrew Cunningham

    A shame they left out one of the best parts of his bio. During the Battle of Crete, he oversaw the evacuation of Allied Forces from Crete to Egypt over 4 nights, managing overall to rescue about 3 quarters the about 22,000 Commonwealth Troops (British, Australian and , New Zealand) from that Greek Island. During the whole episode of the Crete Evacuation, Cunningham was determined that the "navy not let the army down". As his fleet began to take heavy losses from heavy Luftwaffe attacks, he wad told by the army generals though that he should save his fleet and leave them behind. He then famously responded "It takes the Navy three years to build a ship. It will take three hundred years to build a new tradition. The evacuation will continue." Over the years, this quote has often been shortened to "It takes three years to build a ship. Three centuries to build a tradition." The "never say die" attitude of Cunningham and the men under his command meant that of 22,000 men on Crete, 16,500 were rescued but at the loss of three cruisers and six destroyers. Fifteen other major warships were damaged. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Cunningham,_1st_Viscount_Cunningham_of_Hyndhope#Battle_of_Crete_(May_1941) https://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/news-and-latest-activity/news/2015/december/17/151217-first-sea-lord-speech-to-brnc-dartmouth-passing-out-parade

    Just got Nelson and man do I love it! when do we get Rodney?

    One easy way we could get Rodney is if WG does something similar like they did with World of Tanks. When the time comes to add a 2nd UK BB Line (Battlecruisers would be another separate line completely), Nelson would be converted to the Tier 7ship of that line and the existing premium ship named Nelson would be replaced by Rodney. In turn, for those of us who already have Nelson, we would get a free replacement in the form of Rodney instead. Anyway, that's just my idea of how that would work out.

    G3 battle cruiser

    G3 will most likely be the Tier 9 ship in the future UK Battlecruiser Line / Tree. That though is still most likely a year or 2 down the road still (here's hoping).

    Why Add Russian Battleships Line Now?

    To be fair, they did add the French BB's first before planning to go ahead with the Russian ones. I'm disappointed too that the Italians haven't gotten at least one full Tech Tree Line in-game yet, but this is also an opportunity. Once the Russian BB's go in-game, then they can focus on Italy and the other nations that still need lines, plus line splits for existing nations. WG already announced they are working on the 1st UK Premium Heavy Cruiser for in-game, so the line split for that can't be very far off (or at least is now in the near future). Games like this do take time to develop. Just look at World of Tanks, they are still adding lines and nations in. As the old saying goes "good things come to those that wait". Well for some, the wait for this line is almost over, then the waiting for others can't be very far off or are now closer than before.

    Russian Battleship Tech Tree - A Review of the possible

    Don't forget the Commonwealth. They can support both DD and Cruiser Lines. As can the Dutch/Netherlands and Spain and Greece and Turkey can support a full DD Line each.

    British / UK Carriers Clases

    Hermes is a tier too low. She should be a Tier 5 Light Carrier. Argus should be Tier 4. And where is Malta?
