Russian BBs are probably going to be WW1-pre WW2 battleships (Gangut to name one) then paper ships for the higher tiers (Stalingrad-Class Battlecruiser to name one)
Tillman battleships: you do realize they're basically all guns and no AA whatsoever, unless they add a fake modernization i don't see that working out in the higher tiers. The only saving grace it would get is the low CV population, but you're basically screwed if a CV appears in the game.
Saratoga in her battlecruiser form i could see fitting in between T6 and T7 depending on the gun caliber. I down-tiered it to 6 or 7 because of the mediocre 356mm/50 gun caliber. Will need a paper modernization to be competitive unless going ashitaka/mustu route
Would like to see Yorktown-Class with Ranger going down to T6 with Bogue or Langley possibly leaving with the absence of the Independence. Six ways this could play out:
1. Bogue leaves, Independence becomes T5, Langley stays at T4, Ranger at T6, Yorktown at T7?, Lex at T8
2. Langley leaves, Bogue becomes T4, Independence T5, Ranger T6, Yorktown T7? Lex T8
3. Bogue leaves, Langley T4, Independence T5, Ranger T6, Lex T7, Yorktown T8?
4. Langley leaves, Bogue T4, Independence T5, Ranger T6, Lex T7, Yorktown T8?
5. Independence leaves, Langley T4, Bogue T5, Ranger T6, Yorktown T7?, Lex T8
6. Independence leaves, Langley T4, Bogue T5, Ranger T6, Lex T7, Yorktown T8?
Placed Yorktown as possible T8 because of Enterprise at T8 (ship still did well even with T7 planes)
I would like to see a USN BB split in the near future coming back to the Iowa/Monty line
Split at Wyoming, layout is: T5 Nevada, T6 Pennsylvania (Because Arizona), T7 Tenessee, T8 South Dakota (no more South Dakota prems plz), T9-10 Monty and Iowa.
Also give the USN BB line and the split line their 1944 hulls as their final hull options (127mm/38 dual mounts, more 40mm and 20mm AA, etc.) It would probably make the line a bit more worthwhile
RN and KM Battlecruiser lines/split lines? Battlecruiser-class?
I know RN CVs are coming but they honestly came FAR too late
Maybe also finally add the Italian tree, a tree of beautiful, elegeant, and effective ships (We already saw the success of Gulio Cesare)
IJN CL split?
IJN Ships i would like to see:
BBCV Ise- no fighters, DBs and spotter planes, absurd AA, still has BIG GUNS
Zuikaku 1944- Enterprise rival, idea for a Battle of Leyte Gulf bundle bringing both Enterprise and Zuikaku into the shop.
(AA gimmick possible due to rocket AA?)
another two cents
