If you could implement project Habbukuk in game, how would you?

Project Habbukuk ( British Ice carrier)is an interesting concept. A prototype or test ship was built.

 

If you could, how would you implement it in game?

Tier VIII+ alternate history scenario, with Axis ships launching a preemptive strike before Habakkuk sets out to sea.

Hmmm...trying to figure out "armor" values for ice...

Let's start by giving it a turtleback armor scheme (we got a few sea turtles trapped in there...so sue us)...

Then there's the Sea Lion/Dolphin/Shark/Walrus/Penguin/& Polar Bear armor schemes to work out...

Now we need to adjust the armor values due to all the baby seals (not the 1s in the ice...the new players...C'mon keep up here)...

Quick question...will this be the original or the modern day T10 version w/helipads for the Harriers?

a stationary "island" because, supposedly, its top speed was just over or at 5 knots, so it may as well not even had a power plant if it wasnt going to get anywhere until half the year was over

A power plant would have melted the ice, as well as any spitfires/hurricanes operating from it.

didnt they have a pipe system running through it with extremely cold air though? i believe that was one of the parts of the design, that and it wasnt fully ice, it was that Pykrete stuff, a mix of ice and wood pulp/sawdust

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pykrete#:~:text=Pykrete is a frozen ice,6 to 1 by weight).

Create new map. Call it the Hoff islands.

The carrier is in the end loaded with planes. About 1000. Make it the assymetrical battle for AA cruisers and only cruisers.

Then watch as players laughing like schoolgirls at a boy band concert shatter those planes and then sink the carrier.

AA cruiser players need some love too. They might as well be positively happy to the point of sounding like Goofy.

Think of it as a vacation spot when Randoms is a 💩 fest.

It cannot be because is was to hold 1000's of planes. Rts days yes.
