So recently WG announced on its dev blog a new premium cruiser, Brooklyn class cruiser Boise with a note that

 

The cruiser might change her national allegiance and name before coming to production.

 

Well Boise was a US Navy cruiser that after the war was sold to Argentine and become Nueve de Julio. Generally I would rather have it under US tree than as premium for possible future South America tree. So I came with the next proposal: when you are buying this ship you can choose between two options, either as a US premium or premium for some of the South America nations like Argentina, Brasil or Peru. But you can have only one.

 

Generally there were seven ships of Brooklyn class and two of St.Louis class, which could be considered as subclass of Brooklyn class. Six of those Brooklyn class ship have same design, only Savannah get some notable differences and after repair it resembled more to St.Louis class. Five or those six, all but Honolulu, were sold to South American nations, 2 to Argentina, 2 to Peru and one to Brazil. In game class could be represented with possibly two ships - Savannah and any one of the rest of the Brooklyn class as they were all more or less very similar. Having one premium for US and one for Argentine or Brazil would be quite pointless as there is not enough physical or armament differences to justify this. So why not a single ship but with option to choose under which three it would be added. But you will have to choose only one of them as again having the same ship under different trees is quite pointless. Same could be done for possible T9 Fletcher premium for example. If WG decide to introduce USS Johnson why not give a option to buy it as a HNS Velos or as any of other nations Fletchers as they were basically a same ships. But again only one could be chose as at least 15 nations used Fletcher class and that would mean a quite lot of Fletchers in the game.

 

If there is enough reasons to justify different premiums like Leander/Perth than go for it, print as many premiums as you can but for posible premium ships like the Royal Navy N class destroyer which served under Polish, Australian and Dutch flag represented why have three different but same ships if can have one with options to get as either of those three nations. WG than could sell same ship in three different bundles with captains of respective navies and some special flags depending on what nation you choose. 

 

Personally I would like this but honestly I doubt that it will be implemented. But still it could be at least considered. What are your thought on this?

Love the idea but considering the amount of work needed to introduce all of the different nations flags, captains, special camos + voiceovers; Prolly not happening anytime soon, if at all.

Very much doubt  this will happen. After all just look at the Commonwealth Ships.

 

Both Perth and Vampire Served in the Royal Navy for 3 and 16 respectively.  Flew the same White Ensign while with Australian Navy.

 

HMAS Vampire when sunk was attached to the Royal Navy Eastern Fleet.   Not sure why they just dont have these ships on the Royal navy tech tree any way..

 

Interesting Note (for me)

 

Just found out when reading about HMS Vampire she was Escorting my Grandfathers ship HMS Hermes when attacked (both ships sunk). Lucky for my Grandfather as a Rear gunner on a Swordfish torpedo bomber he was not on board as all the planes has been disembarked before the attack.

 

So HMAS Vampire a ship I already Like just has got a lot more Significant to me....

They could do this by just copy/pasting the ships when WG are happy with it's capabilities, so instead of 1 multi-national ship, you get 1 copy per nation/region that drove her/them. Save a lot of reprogramming work.. but then... think of the forum triggering that such copy/pasting would generate.... :cap_rambo:
