Mexican navy based on the Gering class:

Launch it on Mexico independence day, Sept 16th.

Afraid it will not have a mass appeal for players not from Mexico? Have the special camo be "Corona" theme. Boom marketing genius. How do you think 5 de mayo came to be? it's not even a real holiday in Mexico.

With current events that might NOT be a good idea.

I doubt you would get it with the helicopter and ASROC refit... :cap_haloween: That being said, if you can find something to separate her from the normal Gearing. In US service she was a radar picket; perhaps a coal Radar Gearing (similar to the Radar Yue Yang?)?

I have a feeling the OP has the attitude that black humour is the best medicine. I'm sympathetic to that.

We're years away from Corona jokes being funny (or permissible on the Forum). So keep them out of your comments.

That said, I do like the idea of a Mexican Navy ship, We need more LATAM in general. I would like to see Minas Gerais and some of the other BBs.

Well that depends on where you are in Mexico. I get the day off every year.

If she does get the Chopper, will it take the place of Spotter/Fighter consumable, or will it turn her into the DDV we know WarGaming is dying to introduce?

Corona is a very popular Mexican beer which would translate very well to an event like the OP was talking about.

Could you see the marketing?

"Every time you dev strike a ship, a Corona gets it's lime"

But you don't get any signals

Abso-focking-lutly!

Especially want this one (a real ship no less)....

Would make an interesting T10 ship....  a 6 Barrel Smaland/Halland with 1 less torp rack and a little less AA... but class leading DPM.

The tricky part would be if it gets smoke or what kind....my suggestion would be to give it IJN/RU smoke but leave off all other gimmicks like hydro/radar/heal except for a standard DD boost.  It's DPM would be it's gimmick.

IDK, but we already have this CA/BB-launched anti-sub (and SPECIFICALLY anti-sub) airstrike depth charge thing coming, so maybe there's even scope for the ASROC launcher. Hell, if we have homing torps in the game already, why not?

I dunno.  I've had people quote Bavarian beer making laws as proof that Corona is an abomination.

Me?  On a hot day a cold Corona gets the job done.

I just go with the Bud Light Lime, (tastes different up here) and that does the trick for me.

As far as the other thing, I don't live in Bavaria lol.
