WG please give Australia a port as we were a major logisitic contributor in ww2.

During world war 2 Australia  had 5 major ports for ships.

Perth,   us submarine base, but warships to. Naval base.

Brisbane, us submarine base, naval dockyard and naval base

Darwin , 64 air raids on Darwin bombed and strafed by aircraft.  Ships sunk by japanese were the USS Peary, HMAS Mavie, USAT Meigs, MV Neptuna (which exploded while docked at Darwin's main wharf),   SS Zealandia, SS Mauna Loa, MV British Motorist.

Note: There is a memorial in Darwin in honor of the lives lost. This memorial, in Bicentennial Park, consists of a plaque and one of the 4-inch deck guns recovered from Peary. This gun is aimed towards Peary's resting place in the harbor. In the words of Peter Grose, author of An Awkward Truth: The Bombing of Darwin, February 1942, "The doomed yet magnificent reply by the destroyer USS Peary in Darwin harbour as Japanese dive-bombers swarmed around her deserves a place in the legend books of American military history"

Sydney 3 minisub attacks  and shelled to coastal towns by Japanese submarines. Attacks on shipping by Japanese submarines. Garden Island Naval base in Sydney harbour and shipyard at Cockatoo Island in Sydney harbour.

Melbourne ship harbour and troop convoy station, naval base and shipyard

Could an Australian base be added to the Wargaming list

A port of Sydney Harbour with a clear blue sky and the Harbour Bridge in the background would be lovely. But first, we need more Aussie/Kiwi ships.

First maybe add Halifax, or Montreal. 

The Aussies already have two boats in the game, maybe add some more Canada, or another Commonwealth country first.

technically 3 as the haida is a tribal class destroyer built for the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia . We had some as well.

but I agree more Canadian ships should be added.  unfortunately wow does not have frigates, corvettes and minesweepers of which the canadian navy had heaps

But yes, we need an Australian port thank you.
