    Kaiser is in the game. It's the König Albert.

    With this, the only german dreadnoughts still missing from the game are the Helgoland class of battleships and SMS Seydlitz. It would also be nice to have the König and Bayern classes as they were built IRL, instead of these fictional modernizations. I can see the SMS Markgraf at Tier IV, I dunno if they'll put SMS Baden at Tier V, though that ship would be viable at Tier VI if they took the stock hull Bayern and gave it a few buffs.

    The actual wrong take I made was completely misreading what the guy said.

    Here's the ultimate reason why no german ship would've EVER been named Ludendorff in the 1920s, 30s or 40s: The Weimar Republic hated him for being an extreme right anti-republican coup monger who constantly spoke about abolishing the entire system and establishing a dictatorship. The german military didn't particularly like him because he did establish a dictatorship towards the end of WWI and lost the damn war, then spent his postwar years complaining about the military high command. The nazis expelled him from the party for being too insane, EVEN FOR THEM, and for costing them a lot of prestige in his failed presidential election in 1925, an election in which he ignored Hitler's instructions and tried to take over the party. The people of Germany didn't care for him all that much, as was evidenced in his electoral failure. So tell me, under which circumstances would any of these groups, the Weimar Republic, the Reichswehr/Wehrmacht, the nazi government or even the german people as a whole, propose naming one of their main battleships after him? All of the ships mentioned, Stalingrad, Lenin, Piotr Vielkij, Molotov, Richelieu, Charles Martel, were either based on existing ships, named like real ships or taken from the names their countries planned to use.

    - As far as historical representation goes, Neither the Weimar Republic nor the nazi regime would've named a ship "Luddendorff". The WR saw him as the extremist he was and he wanted to overthrow it, and he was also ejected from the nazi party for being into weird cultist crap too insane even for them. - And Lenin isn't comparable to Hitler. Stalin is another matter entirely.

    Seeing this is truly amazing, they did a great job with the models: But it also highlights the disappointment of not getting Cuniberti's battleship as the italian Tier III. It shows how great it would look.

    "Based on Roma's" By that logic there's nothing in the world more inspired than a photocopier.

    SAP. My guess is that they found any SAP shell of a higher caliber would be too broken. Who knows? Maybe they'll use the higher caliber guns to make a line split with battleships that don't use SAP. Also, starting with Colorado the american battleship line had nothing but 406mm guns until now. Vermont is the first american silver battleship to deviate from that standard, so there's that. My main complaint about the italian line is that they couldn't be bothered to add a Tier III ship, especially considering they could've used one design that's quite interesting and historically significant.

    Caracciolo looks quite nice. I'd love to have a Tier VI premium that looks like its original WWI design, but the fictional modernization looks good. And speaking of Tier VII, they could add another battlecruiser like Hood that shows the modernization it was intended to have.

    The silhouette of CdC looks like it's the same one as the Francesco Caracciolo. I dunno, maybe it's also a placeholder, in which case, [edited]this crap, we can't even guess the ships we're gonna get based on these stupid shadows, they could at least use the same placeholder so we'd know they're not the real thing just by realizing they're using the same shadow.

    The first proposal for what we now call "dreadnoughts" came from an officer of the italian navy, Vittorio Cuniberti: So they did have a real design, even if it was a never-built one, to use for their Tier III italian "cuniberti" battleship. And as pre-cuniberti battleships go, they could go with the Regina Margherita: 2x2 305mm main guns and 4 203mm, 12 152mm & 20 76mm secondaries , almost exactly like Mikasa. Don't tell me you don't want this in the game. The Regina Elena has half the number of main guns and a way heavier secondary battery of 12 203mm & 16 76mm guns, so it'd have a terrible main battery and if they rely too much on its secondary battery it'd be overkill. They'd have to make its two main guns extremely accurate to make it work. I've been playing a lot with Mikasa lately, and even if it needs a few improvements to be competitive, it's not that bad and certainly one of the funniest low tier ships you can get. I'd love to have more pre-dreadnoughts available, even if they have the same problems Mikasa has right now.

    I took another look at it and it's the same silhouette of Andrea Doria so you're probably right. We'll have to wait for them to release more images of the rest of the ships to see how it actually looks. Pics: I'll say one last thing: I'm kinda disappointed the Conte di Cavour we'll get is a copy of Giulio Cesare and not the CdC as it was built, with the 3x3 + 2x2 305mm guns. It looked amazing. It'd only have one more gun than, say, Wyoming (IV), Gangut (IV), Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya (V) or Viribus Unitis (V). They could've made it work.

    I'm sorry but considering that two of those ship models are already in the game (Roma and Cesare) the fact that you're not even making a Tier III battleship seems a bit lazy. You're seriously going to discard Cuniberti's battleship design? This line probably won't be released for a long while. Please add a Tier III battleship to it. Oh, and one more thing, what's going on with Dante Alighieri? That silhouette looks nothing like the actual ship.

    Andrea Doria has a smol armored conning tower on its fore superfiring turret.

    Looking forward to the russian dreadnoughts, particularly Gangut and Knyaz Suvorov. Yeah, I know the KS never existed, but it still looks really interesting. I will say that I would've preferred them to go with the Imperatritsa Mariya over Gangut to add some variety (and a royally good name). I also hope they eventually add Borodino in its historical configuration.
