Most of those ships are not comparable to those ingame, even as tier I. Some of the larger could possibly be in game in british tree. Also, no subs.

BTW there is thread about polish ships already.

BTW2. Those ships may not be top modern in the world by WW2 start but posting this in the Age of Sail section is a bit too much :teethhappy:

waiting till user "mr3awsome" detects this topic. That will be fun :popcorn: 

 

Topic was detected prior to Vanhal's post.

However I was in a foul mood and didn't want to post anything offensive.

 

 

Now, however, I shall.

1) Everything below Lynx (inclusive) is not going to be in the game.

2) Whilst Polish sailors did operate a large number of ships, only 1 class of destroyer were of a native design (Grom)

    2.1) Therefore implementing them as anything other than a premium nation is very difficult.

    2.1.5) It wouldn't be very considerate from a ship diversity perspective when there more original designs from nations like Sweden & the Netherlands.

    2.2) The best premium candidates are ORP Grom (original armament for the class), ORP Blyskawica (as refitted with the 4" guns), & ORP Wicher (a slight modification of the French Bourrasque class). ORP Gryff might work if WG consider a tier 1 premium.

    2.2.5) The reason why the rest aren't really applicable is because their class were majoritively used by the Royal Navy, or used by other navies as well.

 

All in all, Poland is likely to represented, just not for a while.

I must say I understand claim for polish tree at WoT, barely at WoWp, but here it's just a joke. We didn't even have native projects of ships larger than destroyer. While Grom-class DD is a good candidate for a prem that all in my opinion. Why build a tree based on English and French ships that will surely be present in their respective trees.

Well after WWI Austria had a little less accessible seas an thus no need for any naval vessels... just as Poland only had access to the baltics and no need for a high seas fleet. Even German ambitions in that department only resulted from a hegemonial wishes and dreams to best their rivals of the Royal Navy. Germany as a country didn't really need a large surface fleet with that few colonies. Especially the high seas fleet waste of resources since there was no decisive fleet action since no one wanted to fight on the terms of the enemy. :amazed:
