Canada had 3 CVs post war. Not many know this.

Between 1946 and 1970, Canada's navy operated three aircraft carriers to help fulfil its anti-submarine mission and to help protect ships against enemy aircraft. These carriers required specialized equipment, procedures, and training for their crews.

 

Scuttlebutt has the launch date around 2029-30.

Canadian carriers from my understanding they weren't anything spectacular, were classified as light carriers. Wouldn't be enough for an entire line. Besides these things are basically British hand-me-downs. You could use one as a premium though.

We could fill out a line with a couple of paper CVs. If designs don't exist, I'd be happy to take a stab at providing some rough sketches.

Hmm.... going to be awhile. However you might see them as part of a commonwealth line or perhaps a couple of prem ships.

Silly Blasto! Don't you know that WG doesn't model real carriers, only fantasy ones! This is why we have German CVs (fake) and no Italian ones (real). You should never have said Canada had 3 actual CVs post war; instead you should have said they had 3 sets of CV blueprints which are available for use. We'd have had them next patch!

:Smile_teethhappy: You must be new here. Things like that have never stopped WG before. May I remind you that the current CV line being released is modeled off one CV that was never even finished? And we all know RU CVs are coming at some point. The only thing WG needs for a new line is a playerbase that will pay for it.

I'd expect CAN CVs after the CAN BB line.

There aren't any designs for Canadian carriers all their carriers are hand-me-downs.  As for BBs they didn't have any. I believe there were plans for the British to give them a hand-me-down. 

As for a line. There wouldn't be for 2 reasons. 1. There's aren't enough for a entire line, I'm including paper designs. In my book if its based on a design then it's "real". 2. Canada would be in the Commonwealth, not independent. Now for premiums sure there would be more than enough. 

Also I've been here in the game since 2014

Well, there is one design for a carrier...

To be fair, we Canucks have actually operated carriers, unlike the Germans who never managed to get one going. Not to mention that we'd be paired with the Aussies who had a few as well (Now there's the minor issue that we've had 2 Majestic and a single Colossus... and the Aussies had 2 Majestic, and a single Colossus... but that's not important)

 

TBH I expect we'll eventually see Commonwealth CVs if the game goes on long enough (I'm talking 4-5 years here). There's only so many potential ship lines out there.

The base ship for any Canadian tech tree ship will be known as the “Eh, Hull”; the upgrade will be the “Toonie Hull”. :Smile_trollface:

Only if you’re on a vodka-fueled bender...to be true to the WG design process.
