there might be potential for a few low-mid tier ships... eventually, I guess, maybe? But not in the foreseeable future - they weren't mentioned in the Pan-European announcement at Gamescom, after all

Hey, is there anytime going to be added Spanish ships into the game?? did they make any progress with Naval Forces During WW2?

Spain wasn't a naval participant in WW2 due to being neutral, admittedly with a slight leaning towards the Germans due to previous ties with the latter in the Spanish Civil War. Their naval power peaked long before WW1, much less WW2 - their post-war maritime forces were pretty much limited to smaller coastal and/or patrol vessels.

 

You'd be unlikely to have enough ships to make a tree or even a complete line - at least within the WOWS timeframe.

I was under the impression we needed trips on glass bottom boats to see whats left of the last Spanish navy... and they still had sails...

Certainly true that there is only one Tier III BB available but there are some decent ships to add:

and an RN designed heavy cruiser

No Italian tech-tree and we're asking about the Spanish?

 

Dream on.

Well RM cruisers are still slotted for this year afaik and since after the also slotted french dds and ru bbs only unfilled major tree remains the italian one its likely that 2020 will be the "year of italy"

When we get submarines!

Golden-Shark-Yellow-Submarine-Gran-Canar

 

I was on this two weeks ago and it was a hoot.

 

Seriously, Canarias heavy cruiser could be part of a wide pan-european group. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_cruiser_Canarias

Similar to the County class British Cruier which WG are already modelling for HMAS Australia and probably a mirroring Britihs unit such as Dorsetshire 

 

Canarias named after  the Canary Island where the above tourist submarine is.

While looking at the Canarias above I had a look at other Spanish ship and they had quite a few destroyers and light cruiser but also one battleship class

And the other interesting one is they considered building ships to the Littorio (Roma) design
