I'd like to see some premium Captured ships like the French DD. Tiger!!!

How's that for an idea?  With a unique camo both Italian & German.

Captured by the Germans, held by Italy until the war was over ...

Perhaps she could also train French, Italian & German operators as she was a real trainer that saw combat too.

An interesting ship with an interesting history.  However, she never saw service with the Germans.  And was only in service with the Italians for about 5 months, and it sounds like she was never really combat ready during that time.

From reading that Wiki article, she sounds more like she should be strictly a French ship, though I'm not sure what tier, 5 or 6.

Well I was using the Tigre as an example but The La Galissonnière was scuttled, "then" retrieved by the Italians repaired and renamed FR 12 & when she was in Germany's hands sunk by the USA. 

Better sunk "than" on the water at war fer the Germans!

 

 

Compare with the word then as events in time. This one then that one.

Than ....  Better than the old one ...

Makarov say hi!

 

Maybe we can get a US-flagged Prinz Eugen and Nagato? :Smile_trollface:

 

Since WG likes Fake A** refits, how would Prinz Eugen and Nagato look with a Post-War US Navy Refit? :Smile_veryhappy:  How about those snazzy 76mm AA guns that Des Moines-class has fitted on both? :Smile_Default:

It would be interesting to have it as a multi nation ship, depending on what nation's captain you put on that would changes the nation flag.

French, German, or Italian.

Well we already have captains that can do this so it seems like a natural evolution.

Well Yea ... If it was owned by several nations it should be able to have commanders of either nation ...

Except we have precedent in game already for why that should not be the case....

 

Otherwise I would love to sail USS Prinz Eugen.

Here we are over 60 years after WWII ...

If we have skin camos of ships damaged like Bismark after being sunk, then why not after the ships were captured by a different nation? 

That's all I'm sayin, with options that can be purchased or earned to have the nation's choice of flags & colors on them.

There. Fixed those for you.

OK, OK, I didn't "fix" them for you, I fixed them to pull Crucis' chain. (Crucis: at least I didn't say "Crucis's" chain.")

A good idea and the precedent has to be Boise and it's renamed successor c/p ship. No different than Mass and Mass B after all.

I vote for Soviet destroyer Verniy, the ex-IJN destroyer Hibiki. TBH I'm really surprised that WG hasn't done this yet. All they have to do is bolt on some already existing soviet weapon assets onto an already existing Akatsuki hull.
