Question

Hi!

In co-op battles we meet a lot of names of the bot-captains from various countries and navies. But I feel there is Japan underrepresented.

For example some noteworthy names appears missing:

Examples:

Admiral Togo, who led the japanese fleet in the battle of Tsushima against the russian fleet.

or

Vice-Admiral Mikawa, who was temporarily successful in the battle of Savo island (Guadalcanal campaign)

or even

Admiral Yamamoto, the strategist behind the attack on Pearl Harbour, who was honoured by WG with a  collection.

 

And there are for sure more names available.

I'm not familiar with the bot names, but perhaps they are based on notable persons from the EU, as this is the EU server? Or are there US examples?
