Hello

 

I am a big fan of the Royal Navy and cannot wait for them in game!

 

You all know that a cruiser line for them is coming up soon but this is a light cruiser line. We are missing heavy cruisers such as the Hawkins Class, County Class and York Class. People speculate that there will be a separate cruiser line for them, but you cannot fill a separate cruiser line with them. But then there are the Battlecruisers like Hood and Renown, but they would not fit in the Battleship line? (in the video below, this will most likely be the Battleship line. 

 

 

How are the HeavyCcruisers and Battlecruisers likely going to fit into the game?

 

Thank you

Heavy Cruisers might be implemented later this year or next year as a subline, but battlecruisers always end up in the battleship line (i.e. Kongo, Amagi)

Imho based on how WG has done things up to now, they'll use 2 methods primarily to fill in a British CA tree.

 

Firstly, WoWs could use sub-classes, for example Fubuki and Akatsuki. The County class for example could be split into Kent class and Norfolk class, with artificial tweaks to make one stronger than the other.

 

Secondly, paper ships. Historically Britain didn't build many heavies because of reasons, such as CA falling out of favour, WNT, the need for lots of smaller cruisers to patrol empire within a budget, wartime building priorities, etc. But the UK did keep track of heavy cruiser development around the world, did revisit the concept a few times, and did make blueprint designs.
