    HMS Sirius?

    We need a new British Premium Cruiser, Belfast was the only one and she was removed last November, its ridiculous that we still don't have another one. They could do 2 (heck 3 even) Types for the Dido's, a 5.25" and 4.5" variant. My RN Cruiser wishlist is Exeter, A county, Penelope, Charybdis and Cleopatra, a Mountbatten Pink Manchester, Newcastle (My Home town) and Jamaica would be nice too. @MrConway

    Can you enable the Blue Master (splinter) skin pack again please?
  5. I'm surprised De Ruyter isn't in game yet, especially after the illegal salvaging over the past few years. Doorman would also be a nice addition as a legendary commander.

    Adding H.M.S Repulse?

    Repulse was not by any means state of the art, she was a 25 year old Battlecruiser from WW1. Sure she had been refitted over the years but that still doesn't make her state of the art. While she did get sunk that day she also managed to avoid the first 19 torpedoes fired at her, it was only through a pincer attack that they got her. Prince of Wales meanwhile was hit by a torpedo early in the engagement which effectively crippled her by damaging her steering equipment, even after that hit she still took 3 more torpedoes and a few bombs before she went under. The torpedo hit on PoW was more a matter of luck than by ship design. The exact same thing happened to Bismarck and she was on her maiden voyage.

    Adding H.M.S Repulse?

    My Proposal for a British BC line is Invincible/Indefatigable, QM, Tiger, Renown, Admiral, J3, G3 and K3 Repulse should work as a tier 5 premium with 30kts and 30s reload, while her HP should be between NY and Kongo.

    Adding H.M.S Repulse?

    I agree that she should be tier 5, she was not modified anywhere near as extensively as Renown which I would put at 6. While she does have large guns for tier 5, she doesn't have many of them, Kongo and New York meanwhile have smaller guns but they have more of them, which should offset Repulse's larger guns.
  9. Witte De With would be a nice addition to the game, this game needs a Dutch ship, ideally before another Russian one. We also need another British Premium Cruiser with the removal of Belfast, and Exeter is a must-have-premium so would be very fitting.

    British Carriers

    Because I think WG dont want to add any new carriers before the aircraft carrier rework, which I believe is the same reason why GZ hasn't been released. Currently I'd like to see another British Premium cruiser, as currently, there isn't any because Belfast got removed.

    Can't sell any ship.

    Right click on the ship you wish to sell, 3 options should appear, Remove/Add to Primary ships, Modules and the one you're wanting, Sell. Hope that helps and welcome to the game :)

    Could you please re-enable the Blue Master camouflage pack, as I really liked the historical ship skins in it.

    Gerard Callenburgh Class Destroyers

    The Gerard Callenburgh Class Destroyers were a class of destroyer designed in the 1930s by the Dutch. They were built in response to the latest Japanese destroyers which completely outmatched the previous Admiralen class destroyers. The new design featured 5 120mm guns in 2 twin and 1 single mount, one twin fore and aft, with the single superimposed over the aft twin mount. It also featured 2 quadruple torpedo tubes, 4 12.7mm Vickers Mk III machine guns and 4 40mm AA guns, they even carried a floatplane. The class were to have a top speed of 37.5kts and a standard load of 1,604 tons, increased to 2,228 tons at full load. The class was to be composed of 4 ships, namely the Gerard Callenburgh, Isaac Sweers, Tjerk Hiddes and Philips Van Almonde. The Gerard Callenburgh was laid down on the 12th October 1938 at the RDM Rotterdam shipyard, and launched a year later on 12th October 1939. As she was fitting out, the Germans invaded the Netherlands on the 10th May and the Royal Netherlands Navy decided to scuttle the destroyer on 15th May to prevent her from falling into Germany's hands. However the Germans managed to refloat the ship on the 14th July and towed her to the Blohm & Voss shipyard in Hamburg for repairs on the 11th October, the Germans renamed her the ZH1 ( Zerstörer Holland Eins or Destroyer Holland One). The Kriegsmarine did not make any modifications to the ship because they wanted to see how the ship compared to their own designs, they did however, replace her AA armament with German ones and as completed she had 5 120mm guns, 2 quadruple torpedo tubes, 2 twin 37mm guns and 4 single 20mm guns, after numerous delays she was finally commissioned into the Kriegsmarine on the 11th October 1942. ZH1 spent most of her career carrying out exercises and operations with the 8. Zerstörerflottile (8th Destroyer Flotilla) based in Le Verdon-sur-mer, these included escorting numerous blockade runners and the Japanese Submarine I-29, which was on its way to Lorient. After word came of the Allied Landings on Normandy on 6th June 1944, the commander of the 8. Zerstörerflottile, Kapitän zur See Theodor von Bechtolsheim ordered his three remaining destroyers (ZH1, Z32 and Z24) and the torpedo boat T24 to sail for Brest, France. On the night of the 8-9th June, they set out from Brest , but were intercepted by the 10th destroyer flotilla. During the Battle of Ushant, ZH1 was badly damaged by accurate fire from HMS Tartar and Ashanti, with all power knocked out, ZH1 drifted to a halt. Later, after opening fire on HMS Tartar, ZH1 had her bow blown off by a torpedo from Ashanti, despite this, her forward turret remained firing but due to her hopeless situation, her captain ordered her to be scuttled with depth charges. The Isaac Sweers was laid down on November 26th 1938 at Koninklijke Maatschappij De Schelde in Flushing, and launched on March 16th 1940. After the German invasion of the Netherlands, the ship was evacuated to the United Kingdom where she was completed. As completed by the British she had 3 twin 102mm guns, 2 quadruple torpedo tubes, 2 twin 40mm bofors and 2 quadruple 12.7mm Vickers Mk III machine guns. Isaac Sweers was commissioned on the 29th May 1941. Isaac Sweers was part of the 4th Destroyer Flotilla, which also composed HMS Maori, Legion and Sikh, during the Battle of Cape Bon on December 13th 1941. During this battle, 2 Italian cruisers ( the Alberico da Barbiano and Alberto di Guissano) carrying oil and supplies to forces in North Africa, were sunk. While escorting convoy MW 8B to Malta, she also towed and saved the entire crew of 240 men from the destroyer HMS Gurkha, which had been torpedoed by U-133 on 12th January 1942. Isaac Sweers was torpedoed and sunk on November 13th 1942 during Operation Torch by the U-431 and sank with the loss of 108 of her 194 man crew. The remaining 2 destroyers, Tjerk Hiddes and Philips Van Almonde, were laid down on the 1st October 1938 and the 2nd March 1939 respectively. Tjerk Hiddes was the only one of these 2 that was launched, which occurred on the 12th October 1939. Hiddes was scuttled after the invasion of the Netherlands in May 1940 and subsequently raised and scrapped by the Germans while Almonde was blown up on the slipway after the invasion and her remains were scrapped on the slipway. This class provides the possibilities for 3 different in game ships, each with a different model and playstyle. ZH1 could be a German Premium Ship with her German armament layout and the standard German Hydro, Wargaming also showed ZH1's model in Haida's naval legends video, which may mean they may be planning on adding her at some point in the future. Sweers meanwhile, could be added as a Dutch ship with her British 102mm armament which will differentiate her playstyle significantly from the other 2 destroyers of the class, and Hiddes could be added with the original design that included the floatplane, this would make her unique as she would be the only destroyer in game with a floatplane. Overall, This is a very interesting class that has some good history behind it and would be a great opportunity for wargaming to introduce a new nation and some new playstyles, Thank you for reading and Good Luck In Battle Captains!
