I would like to see the Dutch WW2 navy ships included in the game?

The Netherlands had 5 cruisers;

1. De Ruyter

2. Jacob van Heemskerk

3. Java

4. Sumatra

5. Tromp


The Netherlands also had the following destroyers;

1. van Ghent

2. Evertsen

3. Kortenaar

4. Piet Hein

5. van Galen

6. Witte de With

7. Banckert

8 van Nes

9. Gerard Callenburgh

10. Isaac Sweers

Kortenaer, De Ruyter and Java should certainly be added as their wrecks were illegally salvaged, same goes for HMS Exeter and Encounter

I don't know, why are you asking me?

 

Wargaming has stated in the past that they would like to include just about every ship that ever existed in the game.

So the longer WoWs exists, the higher the chance that at some point, the Royal Netherlands Navy will be represented.

Her Royal Netherlands Majesty's Ship De Ruyter is certainly a prime candidate.

But a tree or even a branch seems unlikely.

Maybe a few ships as part of a Pan-European branch or something.

 

Furthermore, topics like this have been posted before, sometimes with much more detailed lists and descriptions, but if you're going to post something like this, why not mention we even had a few aircraft carriers?

Take that, Belgium!

 

Edited to add:

 

There was even a World War One battleship design, as well as a World War Two battlecruiser design based on the Scharnhorst class, neither of them built due to the outbreak of war and lack of resources and shipbuilding capability.

Not sure how that makes them any more eligible to be included in this game.

Java and Sumatra never really interested me, they were obsolete upon completion, due to their long construction time.

De Ruyter however, that was an interesting ship.

+1 OP.+1000 if I could. What an insult of unimaginable proportions there isn't at least 1 Dutch vessel present. Heck: give me a tier 8 eerie, without guns with a Dutch flag premium and I'd buy it. Without 1 second thought!

Although I would like to see a Dutch ship in game, it is your own problem if you see it as an insult.  Even if you take the historical facts into account,  the Dutch Navy fought hard and bravely, but had litle influence on the war. WG is a commercial company, the only thing that has influence on when a country enters the game is the expected gain in turnover. 

 

People should stop making this kind of post, the only thing it will create is irritation by other players (Look at the number of topics about the Royal Navy ).
