i noticed that in May Mission breifing they announced the intentions to realise a special German commander (yup you heard me). His name is Helmut Schiffman.

 

anyways hes a 10 point commander earned through missions and has increase to Vigilance and JOT. (35% vig holy [edited] thats going to be amazing on tirpitz build), JOT increased to 10% from 5%

The name is quite common on Germany,, so it is perfectly in keeping with the national 'flavour'. In that sense, historical.

Googling that name doesn't bring up anything so it is probably a generic name. I was hoping the German special captain would be Ernst Lindemann if only for his eloquent order to open fire on the Hood as seen in my signature. The Cliffs Notes are that he was arguing with Adm Lutjens over engaging and when he had had enough that is what he said.

I mentioned it in the other thread.  Seems the special commanders are generic names, these are the captains that have a skill or two slightly better than a normal captain.  while Legendary commanders, Halsey and Yamamoto for instance, will be based off of a real person and have skills better than a regular captain but also bonus's that ar activated by some in game action.  Confederate, high caliber, Devastating Strike, etc.  Personally I'm just hoping for the Legendary German captain to come out and it be Karl von Müller.
