A new harbour for the Pan-Europe

Will the design team do a new harbour for the Pan-Europe theme?
Since most of the ships are Swedish, or have a Swedish connection, I will like to suggest Stockholm as new port. The navy was based here from the 1640s until 1969.
With the beautiful surroundings it has still today, it would be a nice harbour to moor the Swedish ships in the game. I have attached a couple of pics, historical and present air photos.
And a photo where three torpedo-missile ships (T121 & R131 classes) are making a smoke screen at the water in centre of the photos.

This might not be a good time to bring up the fact that one of my many cousins once wanted to sink your whole navy...:Smile_unsure:

 

... but it looks nice enough for a new port. :Smile_honoring:

You'd think we had some Norwegian ship then though...

How about port of Pula with Colosseum in the background?

I think Fjord is there in a KMS context ...

 

With the history of Tirpitz and all

It was introduced during the Euro Destroyers patch (0.9.2), so if the Tirpitz link was deliberate then it wasn't the primary reason. Sure is pretty though...

Pula as a port, when Croatian ships arrive to the game would be ok, I think.

To clarify a bit, most of the Pan-Europe suite are Swedish. And Stockholm would be one harbour more to choose from. Who have said about replacing, e.i. Fjord? 
As I wrote: " Since most of the ships are Swedish, or have a Swedish connection, I will like to suggest Stockholm as new port. The navy was based here from the 1640s until 1969. "

The naval base was before Skeppsholmen placed just cross the water at Baisieholmen (connected to each other with a small bridge) from the 1550s.
At this former naval base site is today the museum located where the HMS Vasa is. The oldest preserved warship in the world, build 1628 and sunk before she made her first journey. Salvaged in 1961.

As a young boy me and my mother once got to stand on the deck of the Vasa (no, not when it still sailed I'm not antediluvian) . I've told this story before (not senile yet), wish I could tell you what the inside of the cabin looked like but it was pitch black darkness in there. The ship was black as well, it was still in the process of preservation at that time, so it was constantly being doused with some kind of chemical compound.

Not quite...

 

Oldest complete, cannon-armed warship maybe ;) After all, the Mary Rose has nearly a century on her, but she's admittedly not half the ship Vasa is :Smile_teethhappy:

Well, then the developers have two harbours to make! :)
Where was the naval base in Gdynia?

That could maybe also be cool.  But with no offens, an other "industrial" port is a bit boring though.
My view was to have the old navy base that once was located in the heart of Stockholm. Below a recent photo from the site, during the event "Skeppsholmsdagen".
Among these vessels are the two fully functional ships T121 Spica and R142 Ystad exhibited.

I think the bigger issue is that there is only a single Dutch ship ingame (not counting the T61 of course). I don't keep my hopes up with Wargaming, but I do expect that they realize Europe is more than a Scandinavian country (don't get me wrong, all respect to the Swedish navy), and that they release additional European lines instead of more fiction. So as of now a Swedish port makes the most sense. Den Helder would be a good choice I think if (when? WG? Please wake up) a (partial) Dutch tree would be added.

My home town once had a naval base too.. but... seeing how the town is located inland with no connection to sea, it might be a bit.. too underwhelming to include... :Smile_hiding:
