How about creating 2 new operations based on the naval battles of Guadalcanal or Battle of Savo island. One  where the players use US ships and the other one for IJN ships?

Could be fun to have some nation specific operations. Most ship classes used in the real battles on both sides are more or less available in the game already.

A Cape Esperance Operation is perfectly feasible as after Helena and Boise have been added, all ship classes involved will be in game, only thing required will be a map. 

 

For a historically accurate First Naval Battle of Guadalcanal, only a Benham is needed. 

 

Savo Island would require the most new ships.

If they made the map large enough they only ought to make one for several ops

Well from an Ironbottom sound map you could do 5 Battles, Savo Island, Esperance, Both Naval Battles of Guadalcanal and Tassafaronga. 

 

I've even mentioned this to @Tuccy

But the historical maps and ops take a lot of time and effort to produce and some ships will be needed, such as Northampton and Canberra, but Northampton can essentially be made from either Pensacola or Indianapolis's model.

Massive battle at jutland if it hasnt happened already.

They should make one revolving around a hypothetical Operation Sea Lion (invasion of the British Isles by the Germans).

Not only could you reuse some elements like motor torpedo boats, transport ships, AI planes and plenty of ships, but you can also tack on a plethora of specific ships that could have been there had political events occured differently, like some expeditionary USN forces like a T7 New Orleans, a few FFL ships like the Algérie or Dunkerque, the Blyska, obviously all available RN ships at the operation's tier, and maybe even one day some Dutch ships.

One can argue If they are planning to create a RN County class Heavy cruisers as a premium, then they would pave the way towards a Battle of Savo scenario as well, I would buy the HMAS Canberra if it was a premium.

There is already a scenario involving KM vs MN RN and USN.. Remember Gold of France. Thinks it about time with some Pacific Naval battles Not only are there plenty of REAL battles reasonably sized battles that would fit in.

I'm not say hypothetical battles are wrong, But why not try a real one for a change, no harm trying or??

They can even create new historical correct premium camouflages for the individual ships USN and IJN bet they will sell like hot cakes at normal pricing.

So what if there's already one?
The crushing majority of operations are against IJN ships in the Pacific with a few random KM ships dropped in the middle of it for odd reasons, and this is just suggestions and brainstorming for new operations.
 

There's no real order or priority to the ideas.
