What's left?

My mind was wandering for a bit, and I wondered what lines were left to be developed:

BBs

  • French (soon)
  • Italian - no word on these yet, but I assume they will come along at some point

CA/CL

  • Italian? - I guess we're seeing Abruzzi at some point, but there's been nothing else
  • U.S. split - I'm calling this another line. On the horizon
  • Pan-Asian? - Is there enough material for this? Need input!
  • Commonwealth - This might be cool, but there's literally no indication that this would be coming

DD

  • British - Cossack is just starting to be worked on, and there were a few British models in the Pan-Asians. Nada so far
  • French - Aigle is floating around, so it might be a precursor. Still nothing official

CV

  • Britain - This is behind the significant wall of CV balances. Honestly if the devs jumped on it this could be early 2019, but that's just my speculation

I'm sure I'm forgetting something. What other lines would make an appearance at some point? Anything you're looking forward to? Something I left out?

They could make so many more lines of existing USN ships if they wanted.

Probably make multiple lower tier lines for British/German ships.

There are also misc other navies with ships too which could be added.

There's also WW1 era vessels many forget the rest of the Central Powers like the Ottoman  Empire and Austria-Hungary both had naval forces that could be added. Plus several British and German Battlecruisers .

We have the Pan Asian line of DD. We could surely have a Pan European line of DD as well. Blyskawica is already a premium for that line.

Royal Netherlands Navy would have enough DD for a line. If WG thinks not then roll a premium or two and add other hulls to the Pan European line of DD. @Lert has great input for that possibility.

Commonwealth needs to be fleshed out. Even though most would be RN re-skins it would add more content. We need Haida as a premium!

I'd kill for the USS Alaska.

There's a perfect T1 candidate (van Kinsbergen). We could have a Dutch tier 2 - 10 destroyer line with less paper than the Russian line, by spreading some designs over several tiers (Roofdier, Admiralen, Gerard Callenburgh, Isaac Sweers, Friesland) There's enough material for half a tree of historically built-in-steel cruisers, definitely enough for a few premiums (Tromp, Java, de Ruyter, van Heemskerck, De Zeven Provincien) and some paper (Eendracht). And there's enough paper designs with enough information floating around for two or three low tier battleship premiums (Varous 1913 designs, 1047).

Likely we're going to see some Dutch designs in a pan-european / minor nations tree and / or a few prems. I'm 100% fine with this. This is likely going to be years from now though - just look at how long the Swedish took to make an appearance in WoT.

<Edit>

Something interesting I just realized, regarding Eendracht / De Zeven Provincien ...

Spoiler

The Eendracht / De Zeven Provincien shares more than some history beats with De Grasse. Both were designed pre-war. Both were laid down before the war. Construction on both was halted because of the war. Both were completed after the war, following a radical redesign - De Grasse changed from the ship we have in game to an AA monster, the Eendracht design was changed so much she was rechristened De Zeven Provincien. Both were launched and served for years after the war.

Didn’t WG say at one point they could do something like 3 USN bb lines? And probably another ijn bb line. There is a lot of USN DD classes and IJN cruisers Etc...

They could also add more modules to existing ships to allow for more variation in a classes current role.  Kind of like WG did with the HSF Harekaze's main battery choices.

USN BB split, Italian DD/CA/BB, French BB/DD, Russian BB, RN CV, Ger CV line.

Prem Italian CV and French CV, Hybrid CA/BB line for IJN. 

That's essentially all that comes to mind.

They can open up some more opportunities if they ever allow branching choices within a line in the tree.

What I mean is that there are two or more choices in one Tier as part of the same line progression. So as a hypothetical, say the Asashio-class DDs are added as another Tier 7 next to the Shiratsuyu, so you could progress through the Hatsuharu, choose whether to research and progress through either Shiratsuyu or Asashio, and then regardless of which of those two you picked you can progress from there to Akizuki.

That would let them stuff in more ships that can't really progress well through a full line including a Tier X, like Casablanca-class and Commencement Bay-class escort carriers being side choices to Bogue, instead of trying to invent high-tier escort carriers for a full line or relegating all those classes to premiums, etc etc.

Between Brazil and Argentina they could probably create workable South American cruiser & destroyer lines.  Maybe battleships as well, but this would require some creativity beyond the low tiers.  There's also the potential for one or more premium carriers.

You can do Italian everything, but of course there are varying degrees of paper - DDs are almost completely steel, cruisers are close behind, the BB line suffers a bit from being compact around WW1, and a CV line could be spun out of projects and half-finished ships, if you really want to (sort of like the Russian BB tree, in fact).
