Posting this after a trial run on the WoWs reddit, and debating which section of the forum to stick this in (this is more of a resource I feel, it would just get buried in general - who knows, maybe it will even get pinned). Long story short, for over the past years I started compiling an excel document of all the paper ships in the game, as a matter of reference. A short description, date of design, and whether this was a fictional (created by WG) design or not. A list of what every paper ship is a useful resource for those interested, so I have prettied it up and pushed it out so more people can learn from it and for me to improve it. And with creating such a list, there comes the matter of defining what a paper ship is, and ships that begin to blur the lines. Therefore I find it important to clarify what I have defined a paper ship as, and so attached a small text box to each image of the list. Repeated below it is as thus; A paper ship here is classified as anything that did not enter service (commission), as well as including certain ships that were built and served that have had their gameplay and appearance dramatically altered by fictional changes. The reason for a major gameplay/appearance change is that most ships in the game has some sort of mistake, change or fictional aspect to it. Paper ships range from; - Ships almost commissioned and completed (e.g. - Graf Zeppelin). - Ships laid down, but never completed (e.g. - Amagi). - Completed designs due to be laid down, but never were (e.g. - Montana). - Preliminary designs (e.g.- Charles Martel). - Specifications for a ship, but no design completed (e.g. - Zaō). - Fictional creations by WG (e.g.- Conqueror). - Real ships (and designs) heavily edited from specification (e.g. - Huanghe, Chester). - Fictional members of a real ship class (e.g. - Harekaze). Certain ships that have a historical (or very close to) hull are excluded from this list, even if the other hull is fictional (e.g. - Orion, Bayern). Spaces marked in Orange indicate uncertainty. Fictional ships are chosen by deviation from the original design and navy practices. Nearly all ships in this list have more minor model accuracy issues. Semi-Fictional ships are ships that have significant historical design basis but also differ significantly. Additional input on any of the ships would be welcome, I'm not a student of every navy, and will have repeated a mistake or few from my gleaning. Individual lists for; Imperial Japanese Navy: United States Navy: Royal Navy: Kaiserlichemarine/Kriegsmarine: Imperial Russian Navy/Voyenno-Morskoy Flot: Marine Nationale: Regia Marina: Pan-Asia: Pan-Europe: And the one huge list, that is better off opened in a new tab since it is too damn long at this point. Honestly it is just best used as a visual device to show how many there are.
