Would be, but won't happen. The best scenario that has historical significance and realistic is the Dunkirk ''Operation Dynamo'' ops scenario which they put up in the rotation occassionally. This was part of an event linked to the movei Dunkirk promotion. Best played in a MN or RN T5 or T6 DD, as it is based on the real thing and it is an escort and evacuation mission. They had a scenario for the landings at Empress Augusta Bay which involved defending the landing site and landing force from an IJN bombardment force like actually happened, but they have never put it back up after the related line release went live.

For the Med, RM vs RN, Taranto, Matapan, Evacuation of Crete, and 1st and 2nd Sirte.

The play map for Dunkirk was real life as the Channel is only twenty-one miles wide at that point In Empress Augusta Bay they compressed the map a fair amount to make it do-able in 20 minutes. I would like to see Savo, Cape Esperance, Tassafaronga, Guadalcanal I, Guadalcanal II, and Kommandorski Islands in the game for IJN vs USN play, and Denmark Straits, Bismarck, Barents Sea, Operation Cerebrus (The Channel Dash-on the Dunkirk map to boot) and North Cape for RN/FLFN/Commonwealth/ VMF vs DKM. They can all be done on a the larger maps. Ocean fills the bill for almost half of these, the others require custom built maps. Many are night or twilight battles something WG has trouble with.

Java Sea and Sunda Strait pits RN/USN/RAN/RHN vs IJN.

And to top it off, Surigao Straits, USN/RAN vs IJN.

Battle off Samar is asking a bit much but it is possible given the force sizes involved. USN small fry against IJN big boys.

But is is all a pious hope for the time being....won't happen
