As the others have said, there are some already there- Hood and Kongo and Amagi. Personally, I'd like to see some of the early RN ones- like Invincible or the Splendid Cats- or a Lexington BC

So you want battlecruisers from the era where all battlecruisers were good at was sucking and exploding.

I would, in particular SMS Goeben and von der Tann, possibly the French Danton often described as a "semi dreadnought." See my thread on pre-dreadnoughts:

Warspite. Hood.

 

I'm pretty sure Nassau, Kaiser, Konig, and Bayern count too.

Post-WWI and / or actual battleships, not BCs.

They are what I want most in the whole game. Gimme.. gimme.. gimme!

 

In fact I would like them to add two more tiers to accommodate more vessels from WW1. Drop a new tier in at 3.5(for early war-prewar stuff) and another at 4.5(late war).

So are Amagi, Kongo, and Ichizuchi.

 

Pretty sure Britain and Germany both considered 25 knot battleships to be battlecruisers.

No not really. The German von der Tann battlecruiser is widely accepted to have been a much more successful design than her British equivalents. 

At Jutland the von der Tann became involved in a duel with the British battlecruiser Indefatigable. The duel began at 3:49pm, and at 4:03, after taking five 11.1in hits, the Indefatigable exploded. It is generally accepted that flash from one of the German hits reached her magazine. The von der Tann was hit four times herself.

And here she is, an incredibly beautiful ship:

We already have some in the game. Would love to see more, especially a Derfflinger class.

He is talking about the WW1 battlecruisers. Probalby the german and british from Jutland.

 

The closest we have is the Ishizushi, wich i like a lot but its a paper ship. Kongo is the battleship reffit.

Kongō as we see her in game is in her fast battleship form. She used to have as her A-hull her battle cruiser form, but that has since been removed.

 

Other battlecruisers though are, Myōgi, Ishizuchi, Amagi, and Hood.

Warspite isnt a battlecruiser, its a  super dreadnought,i think, it might just be a normal dreadnought, but i know for a FACT its not a battlecruiser

Re my above post for the von der Tann, my mistake quoting the volksman
