Pearl Harbor was a major port for the U.S. Navy for a long time. It would be very nice to see it in the game as a new harbor for our ships.

History Milestone: The Attack on Pearl Harbor

I was thinking more towards early 1941 so before the attack, but something like Dunkerque would be good as well, so during the attack.

It would be great to see especially if they put in the background battleship row. 

 

Seeing such a large harbour with all the military paraphernalia are around would look stunning. 

 

I assume it would have to be before the attack or at least well after the clear up, a fair few Americans might find it in poor taste to see it under attack.

Seconded. A proper modern military base would make a great port.

Slightly off-topic, for those interested in the incredible salvage efforts at Pearl Harbor, a series of 3 videos by drachinifel

I saw this series of videos a few months ago and found them interesting to watch.  I learnt a lot about the salvage operation post 7th December.

There isn't even an actual RN base available as a port in the game - and there are dozens of famous and spectacular locations around the world available from this period of history.

 

WG's historical interest seems to stop at ship models.

I second this suggestion!

I would love to see:

Scapa Flow

Spithead/Portsmouth 

Rosyth/Firth of Forth 

Malta 

Gibraltar

And while I am at it, why not Norfolk, Port Arthur, Hong Kong, Cherbourg, Brest ...

I'm still hoping to see Devonport/Plymouth Sound added as a RN port, it is the largest naval base in Western Europe after all.

Of course I'm not biased at all.

Scapa flow would be a very very boring port.... in fact its not a port its an Anchorage..There was nothing there....  

 

The rest yes but Scapa no.. this is is the main infrastructure at Scapa.. you dont even have nice mountains like we do at on the fjords port

Maybe some of us want a nice low-intensity historical port/anchorage? With maybe some German wrecks sticking out of the water?

 

Most ports in the game are quite crowded.

 

PS: My favorite whisky distillery is right next to Scapa Flow in Kirkwall.

That will just upset the Spanish - it can be a very sensitive subject.

 And.. Pearl Harbor isn't?

 

Malta is the logical option for a Mediterranean base, I think.

 

As a side note, could we also have Port Arthur? I'm rather partial to good port. :Smile_trollface:

Truk Lagoon with a Yamato in the background could also be nice.
