    Admiral Graf Spee's eagle to be sold off

    If I remember correctly the plan was to salvage the Admiral Graf Spee and turn her into a museum. However due to a law being passed all salvage was stopped around 2009. The Spee's Eagle belongs in one of three places: 1.) On the back of a fully raised Graf Spee as a museum ship. 2.) In a museum. 3.) At the bottom of the River Plate next to the Wreck of the Graf Spee. The Eagle should not be destroyed. Its a part of history and the Graf Spee is the most honorable ship of the Kriegsmarine.

    [ALL] The High Seas Fleet (WWI German ship colors)

    could you do this for some of the B hulls? Even though some of the ships are in configurations that they would never have it would be great to see the High Seas Fleet Camo on the upgraded hulls.

    I clicked the link which brought me to google drive hub thing. I converted it to a zip file and then downloaded it. I copied it to res mods folder. Is this correct or do I need to go another way?

    I can seem to get the mod to work. Also how did you get the imperial German navy flag?
  6. I have to ask, when are we getting our German legendary captain? They're a handful of captains and admirals that are not absolute monsters. Just because they fought for German in WW2 dose not automatically mean they supported every action Hitler took. Captain's Hans Langsdorff was not a supporter of Hitler.

    All the credit goes to Nick Jellico.

    Question of the Week Submissions

    To the Warships Podcast i.e. @Kelorn @Vanessaira @Aerroon I have been a fan of the podcast for some time, and I was excited when you started to answer fan’s questions through the NA Forums. I have a deep passion for naval history and I am studying for a history degree specializing in the development of Battleships, and I prefer historical accuracy as much is possible. I asked this question a few weeks ago but didn’t hear a reply, so I would like to ask it again. The question is a bit lengthy. Since the tier 9 German Battleship the Friedrich der Grobe is clearly based off the H-39 class battleship, should Wargaming rename her to one of the names that was actual designated to the H-39’s? The two names that were going to be given to the two H-39’s that were laid down was Ulrich von Hutten and Goetz von Berlichingen. These two names are what Hitler would have given the ships if they were actually completed, because just like the Deutschland, he feared any loss of a capital ship named after Germany or the German command. This is well documented in the book “Hitler’s Table Talk (1941-1944)” with an introductory essay on the mind of Adolf Hitler by H. R. Trevor-Roper. On pages 249-250 it reads: 4th July 1942, at dinner Two men in advance of their time — Naming battleships I think it is very astonishing that men like Ulrich von Hutten and Goetz von Berlichingen should have been so far in advance of their times and so Progressive in their ideas, and it is a great pity that they had behind them in their struggle no strong and concrete doctrine, which would have given them the necessary moral elan and perseverance. Their completely German Outlook nevertheless entitles them to a high place in the esteem of the German people. I have for this reason suggested that battleships or other large warships at present under construction should be named after them. I rejected the suggestion that a battleship should be named after myself, because if such a ship has bad luck, the super- stitious would regard it as an unfavorable omen for my own activities. Imagine a battleship named after me having to spend six months in dry dock for repairs! Look, for example, at the very harmful effect the announcement of the destruction of Fort Stalin at Sebastopol had on Russian morale. In a State which is founded on a concrete political philosophy, prudence must be exercised in the naming of warships. October Revolution, Marat, the Commune of Pariš in the Soviet Navy is an example of what I mean. I have therefore ordered that the battle cruiser Deutschland should be re-named, for the loss of a ship of that name would cause greater consternation than the loss of any other ship. For the same reason I will not allow the names of any one associated with the National Socialist move- ment or philosophy to be used for any warships. After a man like Goetz von Berlichingen, on the other hand, you can name as many ships as you like; for such is his popularity among the people that even if any number of ships bearing his name were successively sunk, the christening of a new one with the same name will always be greeted with applause. Also, on page 322 it states: 19th June 1943, at table Big battleships — The infantry of the seas. Formerly I planned to construct the most powerful squadron of battleships in the world, and intended to name the two mightiest of them the Ulrich von Hutten and the Goetz von Berlichingen. I am now very pleased that I abandoned the idea. For, if we had such a squadron, we should be under a moral obligation to use it. Of what practical assistance could such a squadron be to-day? It would be condemned to playing the part of "the last of the knights in armour". Evolution these days has been so swift that it is now the in- fantry of the sea which assumes the prime importance. Apart from submarines, our greatest need is for little ships — powerful corvettes, destroyers and the like — these are the classes that carry on the fight. The Japanese to-day possess the most powerful fleet of battleships in the world, but it is very difficult to use them in action. For them, the greatest danger comes from the air. Remember the Bismarck. Now even though both ships were scraped before 1942 if they remained in construction by the time, they were commissioned it would have been 1943 thus being christened with those two names. What is your opinion? Also, is there any chance you can bring back the intro theme you used when KamiSamurai was a mainstay? The old theme really fit the aesthetic of a podcast about warships. And Aerroon you aren’t blamed for this change. Thank you for taking time to answer my question.

    Question of the Week Submissions

    Hey, the Warships Podcast this is a question I proposed to Suboctaivn and his Q&A Reddit post. However, I would like to know what your opinion of the question is. To Suboctavin, First off, I want to thank you for taking time to answer questions from the community. I love it when a game company engages with the community. My question is a bit lengthy. Since the tier 9 German Battleship the Friedrich der Grobe is clearly based off the H-39 class battleships is there any plan to rename the ship to what they were going to be called? The two names that very going to be given to the two H-39’s that were laid down was Ulrich von Hutten and Goetz von Berlichingen?

A smaller question is Wargaming ever going to look at implementing German aircraft carriers? There are enough designs for it. If you can only answer one question, please answer the first one. Thank you for your time.

    Bismarck Camo Change

    I don't deny that the south broke away to protect the institution of slavery. However, the Confederate Battle Flag was not made to support any racist ideals. And I hate seeing the flag being used by white supremacists. Also, the North still had slavery and the border states were allowed to keep slaves to prevent them from succeeding. America was a lot different back then and you really can't say that only the south was racist.

    Bismarck Camo Change

    I hate it when White supremacists use flags that don't have racists ties to it as their symbol. The confederate Battle Flag is one such flag. Imperial Germany wasn't racist. At least no where near the Nazis.
