The Haida is Canadian in flag only, this was a British built boat bought by Canada. Please WG, release the HMCS Micmac, give it the same spec's, same everything, but let me sail a Canadian built boat! The Micmac was built in a Canadian port, by Canadian's. It never saw war action, but it did suffer Canadian casualties in an awful accident. 

 

I'm happy to see Canada enter the game, but I want a true Canadian boat in my port.

Considering the history of the Haida in the Royal Canadian Navy, I disagree....I am more than happy to sail our most decorated and venerated ship of that era.  Micmac wasn't even commissioned until after the end of the war in Europe, regardless of the fact she was the first destroyer constructed here.

You bought it you own it. I am sure you all, Canadians refit it several times, with Canadian Labor.

I feel that this thread is just full of fail and not going to go anywhere.

 

The Brits built many ships for other nations. Like Perth is not Australian, Kongo is not Japanese, Blyskawica is not Polish...

Tashkent is not Russian...

Uh....no. WG can't just 'take back' Haida and spent more time modelling another ship at this point. And they aren't going to release another tier 7 commonwealth destroyer. Market's a bit filled right now.

^^ This, Haida was manned by Canadians, Commanded by Canadians.... Canadians bled on her decks for their King and their country, she is Canadian as Canadian can be. Where she was built is not relevant.

Seriously?

 

It doesn't matter where a ship was/is built, it matters where they serve. In Haida's case, she's Canadian, through and through.

Rather than demanding WG release a whole new bote.....I figure you'd probably have far more luck kindly asking for some to make a Micmac skin mod....and from what I here it's not all that hard to change the names of ships in the game files so it reads as "Micmac" in game.

This. It's like saying the cobra chicken is Canada's national bird.

this ship is utter trash so so many bad games soso few good ...

Heard the ship has a big learning curve to get the most out of it. Maybe you don't make the cut, or are unwilling to make it.

this is one very funny thread.

As MrDeaf points out, without brit shipbuilding, many of the most iconic ships in the game, whether Japanese, Polish or Canadian (for examples) would not have existed.

Patriotism can be a fine thing, but generally speaking, it can also get intensely silly, very quickly.
