Pirate Ship Line implementation

I am not a frequent poster in the forums but I read them alot, and I have been thinking that a pirate line of ships could really improve the game. 

My first suggestion would be to include a somali freighter, it would work alot like a CV and launch slow moving speedboats instead of planes or torpedos, the difference in this would be that the speedboats could home in on the target ships. 

Once the speeadboats reach the ships they could board and start fires and cause leaking. (Also they would reduce the boarded ships effectiveness in most ways)

You could combat the boarded party by paying a ransom to the somali freighter, also the speedboats could be shot at with main guns and secondaries automatically. 

 

There could really be many different variations in the pirate line with very different mechanics.

Edit: Really its more of a joke then anything but still.

Maybe a ship line that has No national allegiance no national flavor with massive secondaries unequaled by any line, with speed boosts.

Bigger than a DD smaller than a CA, No main battery no torpedoes very small Citadel with fast rudder shifts.

Flys the Pink Skull n Crossbones flag. Sails the Battle unaffiliated with any other ship. Gains Exp by stealing  everyones they fight with and survive.

No more than 4 Pirates Ships in any battle. Player controlled.

Well this will be locked. We don't need another Day of Tech Trees.

Oh stuff it. We both know there's a far superior form of pirates than the Somali speedboat ones and that's what disappointed me.
