  1. Grinding away, mostly on Coops. Halfway through the third stage now. Getting all those main battery hits is tedious.
  2. Witte De With had the most advanced equipment and was one of the two Dutch destroyers that fought at the Battle of Java Sea. Kortenaer and Evertsen would be good candidates too. Kortenaer was sunk at Java Sea. Evertsen went down fighting in the Sunda Straits against several Jap DDs. I would love to see both De Ruyter and Java in the game for the cruisers. Both brave ships that were sadly overwhelmed. The compact and unique cruiser Tromp is an interesting ship too. We MUST have a USS Houston. We now have every class of US Heavy cruiser EXCEPT the Northampton class in the game.

    Lower Tier French premium's

    I would love a Suffren class heavy cruiser. I would BUY a cruiser Foch if one was offered... Tier 5 or 6 would seem about right

    Premium Ship PREVIEW: HMS Exeter

    THRILLED to see this historic ship added to the game!! Perhaps we can get a USS Houston and Hr Ms De Ruyter to go with our Exeter and Perth?
  5. That Soviet BB line is 2/3 pure fantasy with just ONE class that was actually completed. I love the Gangut and look forward to playing her. I really love the Izmail (which was nearly completed) and look forward to playing her. The Sovetsky Soyuz was a monster and THAT will be fun. But 3, 5, 7, 8, 10 and Lenin are pure paper AT BEST. But then again, space battles, so we're already deep in Fantasy-land. Nice work on the RN CVs though.

    West Virginia 1941... almost

    Thank you! I look forward to looking through your camo schemes!

    West Virginia 1941... almost

    That will be something I want to get. Where will you be posting this custom camo?
  8. The new WeeVee 1941 is a beauty. All the power and beauty of the standard type US battleships. I'm delighted to add her to my fleet. BUT, what's with the boring generic dazzle camouflage? West Virginia was painted in Measure 1 in 1941, the USN standard paint for BBs. If you are going to sell her as the 1941 version, she should LOOK like the 1941 version down to her Measure 1 paint job. Not offering that is a missed opportunity, WoW. Still, thrilled to see her added to the game. Maybe we can get the California (flagship of the battle fleet) to go along with her so we can assemble a Pearl Harbor battle line. Jef
  9. Fascinating story, Lert. I had not read about this action before.Thanks for sharing.

    MN Joffre French Aircraft Carrier

    And there were "paper" vessels in the immediate post war era, too, leading up to Clemenceau and Foch

    MN Joffre French Aircraft Carrier

    As far as I am aware, the navalized version, which was the D.790, was designed but not built prior to the Armistice.

    MN Joffre French Aircraft Carrier

    Probably right. Cmdt Teste doesn't really fit although I have personally always found her an interesting ship. I shall dream though of a Bearn and a Joffre.

    MN Joffre French Aircraft Carrier

    That line drawing notwithstanding, pretty certain the Joffre and two elevators, one fore and one aft. And the D.520 was an excellent single seat fighter, likewise the Breguet 810 (a navalized version of the 690) was a very fine attack aircraft. Better planes than Britain at the start of the war.

    MN Joffre French Aircraft Carrier

    Bearn was not particularly BAD just woefully SLOW, like the British Eagle. But she did carry a good complement of aircraft.

    MN Joffre French Aircraft Carrier

    Yes, but add her anyway. We have plenty of seaplanes in the game and no reason we cannot use an interesting one-off. She could be outstanding for spotting and search. And there was also a proposal to convert her to a standard aircraft carrier as well. Similar plans also were considered for the cruisers Duquesne and Tourville.
