Something has been dug out of the "Bolentines Navales Agentinos" in regards to an Argentine Battleship to be commissioned in 1943.

The specifications for this seem very similar to the Ansaldo export Littorio that was proposed to Spain around the same time period.

Very interesting from a historical perspective, and it means that a possible PanAm BB line could now be extended to tier 8 with real designs with very little stretching involved.

That would be pretty cool, I wonder if any nations that the game would call Pan-American designed paper ships that could go to 10 so we could get a whole line?

I'd say doubtful for BBs, though depends how far you are willing to push what constitutes paper ie. whether you consider napkin designs.

That said, you could make without much trouble a full  PanAm DD line with mostly historical designs and this beast tier X

Yes that's a Halland with an extra turret :cap_rambo:.

DD: yes with 100% real ships (check my bio

CL: up to T9 comfortably when including export designs (Jianwei set precedent), T10 would be a stretch or an as yet undiscovered design (or a WG fake)

BB: Real to T5. T6 ordered but not build. T7/T8 paper. T9/10 fake/undiscovered.

I can expand on these when I get home.
