Can we get the Cimarron to play?

After playing Operation Killer Whale a few times and torping, blasting, nuking, or allowing my secondary gun crews some target practice burning the Cimarron supply ships to their waterlines, I took the time to look at them and realized that they are as well armed as a Nicholas DD. I said to my self, "That might be fun to troll about with if we could win them!"

Maybe a tier 3 cruiser equivalent? 4x127mm; 2x28mm quad and several 20mm. 15000 HP. A little slow, but about the same as Saint Louis. Not bad for tier 3.

And possible allow upgrades based on Q-ship configuration to tier 4 or 5. Increase armor, add 2 152mm to each side and 2 more 4x28mm (or Nation specific 37mm or 40mm). Then maybe Nation specific add-ons? 

2-tube torps on each side for IJN;

8 105mm as secondary's for German (2 on each corner);

1 extra 152mm on each side and short fuse AP for royal navy;

replace the single mount 127mm guns with twin mounts for USN,

and a 2x203mm gun mount amidships for French in salute of Surcouf.

Add access to 2 modules: Smoke, catapult fighters, hydro, defensive fire. Specific options available based on nation

Finally, for a reward for playing a cargo ship in a real battle, if your team wins and your ships survives, you receive 1 container as a failed chance at a super container (4 flags). Maybe limit this reward to 1 day. 

Anyone else want to drive a cargo ship?

In terms of 127mm armed ships, I'd still be leaning more toward the Treasury class as low tier cruisers.

As supply ships they probably only go about 18 12 knots...
