    Commonwealth DD tech line proposal

    A modest DD tech line proposal for the Commonwealth. Wild polar bears, wallabies, and kiwis on the loose! :D. Play style/consumables/gimmicks/etc similar to HMCS Haida. Tier 2 HMCS Patrician https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Patrician_(1916) Tier 3 HMAS Tasmania https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMAS_Tasmania Tier 4 HMAS Voyager https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMAS_Voyager_(D31) Tier 5 HMCS Saguenay https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMCS_Saguenay_(D79) Tier 6 HMCS Saskatchewan https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Fortune_(H70) Tier 7 HMAS Arunta https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMAS_Arunta_(I30) Tier 8 HMAS Queenborough https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMAS_Queenborough_(G70) Tier 9 HMCS Algonquin https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMCS_Algonquin_(R17) Tier 10 HMAS Vendetta https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMAS_Vendetta_(D08)
  2. With a hat-tip to Lert's Dutch suggestions...Any thoughts on potential play style/gimmicks/consumables greatly appreciated Tier 2 Yugoslav cruiser Dalmacija https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMS_Niobe Tier 3 SMS Admiral Spaun https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMS_Admiral_Spaun Tier 4 SMS Novara https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMS_Novara_(1913) Tier 5 HLMNS Java https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HNLMS_Java_(1921) Tier 6 HLMNS De Ruyter https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HNLMS_De_Ruyter_(1935) Tier 7 Spanish cruiser Almirante Cervera https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_cruiser_Almirante_Cervera Tier 8 Greek Cruiser Elli https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italian_cruiser_Eugenio_di_Savoia Tier 9 HLMNS De Zeven Provincien https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HNLMS_De_Zeven_Provinciën_(C802) Tier 10 I'm stumped here...any suggestions?
  3. with a big hat-tip to the other players on their suggestions. Similar to Vibirus Unitis, (good but not crazy good accuracy, low detection for a BB, slightly lower HP pool, maybe add a better than average heal and good damage control at tier 6+ to buff) but with vastly improved AA above tier 5. More sneaky sniper than muh brawler with decent HE and AP damage output at medium and long-range because of more guns per ton than other BBs in tier. Higher tiers (7 and up) with above average speed, tier 6 and below average to below average speed. Tier 3 Spanish dreadnought Espana https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_battleship_España Tier 4 SMS Tegetthoff https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMS_Tegetthoff_(1912) Tier 5 Spanish dreadnought Reina Victoria Eugenia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reina_Victoria_Eugenia-class_battleship Tier 6 SMS Monarch https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ersatz_Monarch-class_battleship Tier 7 Turkish dreadnought Reşadiye https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Erin upgraded for WW2 service. Tier 8 Spanish battleship Jaime I https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Littorio-class_battleship with slimmed-down stats to fit into the overall play style of the line. Tier 9 Turkish dreadnought Sultan Osman I https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Agincourt_(1913) with extensive upgrades for WW2 era service, but you could also use this design as the basis for a fictional up-gunned Agincourt successor of 1920s-1930s standards. Tier 10 'Greek battleship Vasiliefs Nikephoros Fokas' https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Dakota-class_battleship_(1939) with nerfed secondaries, lower detection, no American super-heavy AP, and a low for tier HP pool. If Wargaming decides to use the Turkish ships in the Pan-Asian tech tree instead of pan-European, replace Resadiye with Vasilefs Konstantinos (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bretagne-class_battleship with similar upgrades to the Bretagne's upgraded module as stock) at Tier 7, and maybe an upgraded version of the Littorio design for Spanish service replacing the Sultan Osman I (or up-gunned successor) at tier 9.
  4. These Are designs from 3 different countries: Austria-Hungary, Spain and Netherlands. (though mostly Austria-Hungary). I've found some designs that may possibly work with the tiers, but some would need to have some tweaks to armor and speed. Since, Wargaming has made tweaks like that on many existing vessels in-game; so it's sort of reasonable. AA armaments can installed to them through a series of hypothetical loadouts. Tier 3: (Constructed design) España class: (Spanish design) Armament: 8-12(305 mm) inch guns / 20-4 (102 mm) inch guns Armor: 8 inch (203 mm) armor belt Speed: 19.5 knots (could increase this to, 20 knots since it is basically 20 knots if rounded) Tier 4: (Paper design, though based on a constructed one) Project 6a: (Austro-Hungarian design) This is basically an Austrian version of the Wyoming. This is a preliminary design of the Viribus Unitis. But it has a lot of inspiration from the Wyoming Armament: 10-12 (305 mm) inch guns (all in duel turrets) / 18- 4 (102 mm) inch guns (single mounts, some in casemates) (edited: miscounted the number of main guns it has, but still would work pretty well for the tier.) Armor: 9 inch (230 mm) armor belt: This could be tweaked to 10 inch belt (254 mm) Speed: 20.5 knots: (This could be tweaked to 21 knots, since if rounded it's basically 21 knots) Tier 5: (Paper design) 1913 proposal: (Dutch design) This would be similer to the Pyotr Veliky Armament: 8-14 (356 mm) inch guns / 16- 5.9 (150 mm) inch guns Armor: 9.8 inch (250 mm) armor belt: This could be increased to 10 inch belt (254), since if rounded it would be 10 inch. Speed: 25 knots Tier 6: (Paper design) Erastz Monarch class: (Austro-Hungarian design) Armament: 10-14 (356 mm) inch guns / 14 -5.9 (150 mm) inch guns Armor: 12.2 inch (310 mm) armor belt: This could be tweaked a little to maybe 13 inches (340 mm). Speed: 21 knots: This could be tweaked to maybe 23 knots Tier 7: (Paper design, though based on a constructed one) Project 3, Design 1917: (Austro-Hungarian design) basically it's an improved Austrian version of Queen Elizabeth and Bayern classes. Armament: 8- 15 (380 mm) inch guns / 18-5.9 (150 mm) inch guns Armor: 12 inch (305 mm) armor belt: (This could be increased to aprox 14 inches (356 mm), and make the armor scheme turtle backed. Speed: 25 knots: ( I don't see any reason why this cant be increased to 26 knots, it would still be faster than most tier 7s) Tier 8: (Paper design, though based on a constructed one) Spanish Littorios: (Spanish design, duh) After the Spanish Civil war, the Spanish wanted a new modern battleship to be based on the Italian Littorio class. The Spanish were going to get Italian assistance in building it. Spain built the necessary facilities to construct the vessel, but due to Italy's entrance into the 2nd World War. The construction was ultimately cancelled. Armament: ( Since this was supposed to be based on the Littorio class (basically Roma), it is logical to assume the armament would've been the same, but little different) 9-15 (380 mm) inch guns / 12- 6 (152 mm) inch guns Armor: 12 inch (305 mm) armor belt Speed: 30 knots Tier 9: (Paper design) Project 5, Design 1917: (Austro-Hungarian, design), This would have to be hypothetical modernized version of the original design. This design uses the largest guns designed by Austria-Hungary, these guns would've been in 4 duel turrets all in super firing. Armament: 8- 16.5 (420 mm) inch guns / 20- 5.9 inch guns ( these could be put in duel mounts and could be DP guns, duel purpose,) Duel purpose meaning could shoot both surface and aerial targets. The orginal design called for 20 single mounts and 4 DP single mount guns, So I chose to unify the armament to be all DP guns. Armor: 15 inch (380 mm) armor belt: (original design called for, 12 inch armor belt; But. Sense, 12 inches does seem to be too thin for the tier. So I think it should increased by 3 inches and be made turtle backed scheme similar to Fredrich Der Grosse.) Speed: Maximum upgrade 30 knots: (The original design would've been 24 knots, but since the speed is too slow for tier 9. I increased the speed by 6 knots to be more like Friedrich Der grosse) Tier 10: (Paper design) Project 13C, Design 1914: (Austro-Hungarian, design), This would also be a Hypothetical modernized version of the original design. Note: that the original design actually called 12-14 inch guns, I replaced the 14 inch guns with the 16.5 inch guns used on Project 5 ( so it would be more fitting for tier 10). Sense there are no Austrian battleship designs that called for anything more than 8-16.5 inch guns. The guns would've been in 4 triple turrets all in super firing. So the armament, I gave it would be similar to Grosser Kurfurst's. I added the letter C to represent it's modified from the original design, this of course would have to be bigger than the original design to accommodate the larger gun caliber Armament: 12- 16.5 inch (420 mm) guns / 20- 5.9 inch(150 mm) guns (duel mounts), perhaps DP guns. Armor: 15 inch armor belt: (This could be tweaked to 16 inches, and its armor scheme would also be turtle backed.) Speed: 30 knots I made most of the line out of Austro-Hungarian battleship desgins, but used a couple of Spanish ones and 1 Dutch. I had to use a lot of paper designs. Since Spain only really built 1 class of dreadnought battleships. The Netherlands built a few coastal battleships, but nothing really serious, but they had some 1 design of dreadnought battleships and a battlecruiser design, the battleship design is what I used. For Austria-Hungary, also built one class of dreadnought battleships (which is the Viribus Unitis class, also known as the Teggetthoff class) Austria-Hungary built a class of semi-dreadnoughts, and a bunch of pre-dreadnoughts. But, the Semi-dreadnoughts had a mix caliber armament and would be kind of awkward to use in-game. Anyway, what do you guys think? I'm open to suggestions, for updating this. I'll update this later and put some pictures to give somewhat an idea what, I'm talking about. Edited: I got the pictures up for some of the designs, should be in order from tiers 3-10. Premium Tier 6 (Paper design) Holland class: (Dutch design) these were Dutch battlecruisers that would be given an armament similar to Scharnhorst and the Netherlands would've received German assistance on the project. The Netherlands lacked heavy surface units in its fleet, this was there response to the problem. Ironically, the project was cancelled because Germany chose to invade. Armament: 9-11 inch guns (280 mm) / 12-5 inch guns (actually really more like 4.7 inch, 120 mm) Armor: 9.8 inch armor belt: (250 mm), we could tweak it to 10 inches (254 mm). Or maybe 11 inches (280 mm) Speed: 33 knots The gameplay for this is to be more like a glass cannon, fast and with a quick reload. But relatively poor armor. (Note: the 2nd to last picture is the, photo of this ship) Premium Tier 4 or 5 (construction started, hull launched, but never completed) Salamis (Σαλαμίς): (Greek desgin) The Royal Hellenic navy lacked heavy surface units within its fleet. The heaviest vessel in its fleet was the Georgis Averof, but its gun caliber is small in comparison to the reported Ottoman battleships that were reported, to be under construction. During, Greco-Turkish war of 1897 the performance of the Royal Hellenic navy against its main rival, Ottoman Empire (Turkey) was less than satasfactory. The Greeks wanted a new battleship that could rival the larger vessels of the Ottoman navy. The Greeks, like the Ottomans, ordered this new battleship to be built abroad, more specifically in Germany. But with, the start of hostilities of the Great war (WW1) this meant that the order of the U.S made 14 inch guns never arrived in Hamburg, due to the Royal navy blockade of Germany.(Britain, "apropriated the guns", the British have a bad habit on taking things that's not their's). Thus eventally the ship was scrapped. Armament: 8-14 inch guns (356 mm), 12-6 inch guns (152 mm) (all in casemates) Armor: 9.8 inch armor belt (250 mm) Speed: 21 knots The gameplay for this ship is supposed to be more of a glass cannon type ship, its armor is mediocre. Its guns are the largest of her tier but her armor and AA defense suite is less than ideal. (the very last picture, is the drawling of the ship) (Note: I didn't include Ottoman battleship designs, I'm aware they had some that would fit in this tree. Given that a part of their country is in Europe; however. Most of Turkey is in West Asia, it is because of this that I didn't include their designs. As I'm not too certain if they could be classified as European or an Asian country.)

    Commonwealth BB tech line proposal

    Here is my view of what a Commonwealth BB line should look like. An interesting feature could be more AP focused, fast for their tier, but with a better than average heal a la higher tier UK ships and American style AA at tier 8 up. weaknesses could be poor torpedo protection, especially lower tier as all are WW1 era designs, and meh secondaries. Fast long-range sniper-style gameplay. starting at Tier 4 HMAS Australia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMAS_Australia_(1911) Tier 5 HMS New Zealand. Slightly tougher than Australia. Maybe with fictionalized post-Jutland 'what if no Washington Naval treaty' upgrades. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_New_Zealand_(1911) Tier 6 HMS Malaya https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Malaya Queen Elizabeth in her 1915 as built configuration as it's stock module, but with Queen Elizabeth stock module as an upgrade. Tier 7 HMCS Acadia This was a proposed Queen Elizabeth variant offered to Canada that was voted down by Ottawa in 1913. Uptiered fictional Warspite upgrade for WW2 service. Tier 8 uptiered Hood variant. Call it 'HMS Erin'. Tier 9 possible name could be 'HMS Newfoundland'. The Renown as rebuilt for WW2 service. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renown-class_battlecruiser Tier 10 possible name could be 'HMS South Africa'. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G3_battlecruiser what say you?
