Battleship Potemkin, if only for the simple reason that it might just be the most influential warship in the history of cinema.

Oregon.

Combat veteran of the Spanish-American war. Sunk either one or two Spanish cruisers. Was a museum ship until the scrapped her for steel during WWII. 

There were multiple battleships at the Battle of Santiago de Cuba, but most of them share names with current BBs (Iowa, Texas, Massachusetts).

I thought that was the Austrian monitor that did that? If so, I’d love to see more Austro-Hungarian ships in game. 

Viribus Unitis is way underrated, and I’d love the Habsburg ships to form an EU BB line - I just don’t see them getting it past Tier VI with Ersatz Monarch). Definitely not to Tier X because, ya know, history.

Never mind. That was WWI. I can’t read.

Yes.

They are hundreds of options for predreadnoughts and armored cruisers and protected cruisers.

Potemkin, the Deutschland class ships that survived, Kilkis (ex USS Mississippi) would be my top 3.

Pre-dreadnought battleships of the Russian Navy.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_battleship_Tri_Sviatitelia - Last ship of the White Navy

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_battleship_Sissoi_Veliky - Boxer rebellion fame

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petropavlovsk-class_battleship - flagship of Admiral Makarov

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_battleship_Rostislav - first battleship in the world of use fuel oil. A unique design. Would make an interesting premium.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peresvet-class_battleship - Bulk of the fleet at Port Arthur in 1905

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_battleship_Potemkin - famed for her mutiny

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_battleship_Retvizan - famed for her actions at Battle of Yellow Sea

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_battleship_Tsesarevich - flagship at Battle of Yellow Sea

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borodino-class_battleship - flagship at Battle of Tsushima

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evstafi-class_battleship - flagship of the Black Sea Fleet in early WW1

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrei_Pervozvanny-class_battleship - only European battleship with lattice masts. Famed for operations in the Baltic in late WW1 and actions against the Krohnstadt mutiny.

...and all these ships are from one of the lesser navies of the world.

Imagine how many ships there are, for example, in the British navy from the same time period...(!)

BB-16, Virginia class, looks like a St. Louis with 12in guns and 8in guns stacked on top of them, named after my home state, largely forgotten about due to the other BB named after my home state

Fortunately Spain also has a few options that could go at both high and low tiers. For example there was discussions of them buying a Littorio variant from Italy. And a wide variety of Vickers offerings, including a large battlecruiser that's seemingly a 15"/42 armed version of G3. (There's probably also Armstrong and John Brown offerings to Spain from the same era; those companies were at the time co-owners of Sociedad Española de Construcción Naval.) Between Spain and the Austro-Hungarian paper ships WG could probably piece together most of an EU BB line. 

As for the topic of pre-dreadnoughts, the Habsburgs could give us Radetzky:

I'd also like to see USS Nebraska, just for the camo:
