Picked Lujtens in armory but the name of the commander when I received him was Franz von Hipper. Couldn't find anything on it in searches. What gives? Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hipper commanded Scheer's High Seas Fleet battlecruiser scouting squadron. A bloody good commander too, who avoided Beatty's Grand Fleet battlecruiser squadrons twice and gave a whole lot more than they received when slugging it out with Beatty's bunch, which he did at Dogger Bank and twice at Jutland. Look him up. If he has the Lutjens special skills he is well worth it. What's in a historical name is worth studying sometimes.

There's no Franz von Hipper.  There are two German coal captains:

Franz von Jutland 35k Coal

Gunther Lutjens for 175k.

Gunther is a hell of a expensive commander. You should have him in your reserve.

 

There are other commanders with similar names. But much cheaper and no where near as effective as Gunther.

Maybe you got mixed up between Code Lyoko watching and playing world of warships.

If you are using the 'Historical Commanders" located in Aslains modpack or the WG modpack, is what you will get.  It does the same for William Halsey, changes the name and image to Chester Nimitz.
