Hi WG Dev Team,

Requestion to add 2 IJN ships in Pan-Asia as a Branch tech tree. Like the Pan-America and Pan-Europe Tech Tree suggestion, I have noticed that they can have branches that may have different play style but still keep their gimmik (i.e. IJN Destroyer branch and USSR Destroyer branch).

In Pan-Asia, some IJN ships were surrendered and gave to ROC as war booty. 2 of these ships are Tan Yang (IJN Yukikaze "Kagerou Class") and Fen Yang (IJN Yoizuki "Akizuki Class").
Not only IJN ships but some Russian ships sold to Indonesian Navy. KRI Brawidjaja (Bezzhalostnyi).

Please make them as branch tech tree. As Pan-Asia really does not have much of a tech tree other than just Destroyers. Pan-America, Pan-Europe and Commonwealth of Nation may or may not have a complete Battleship tech tree, but they have a high chance to have a complete Cruiser tech tree. Pan-America and Pan-Europe also have branch Destroyer tech trees.

Hope you consider this suggestion.

Thanks :)

A problem concerning Ex-Japanese warships is that all ex-Japanese warships turned over to Allied powers as war reparations are in a disarmed state and you have to basically invent a set of U.S. made armaments as the case of Shenyang (IRL at the end of WWII she has been converted into a Kaiten carrier and already has her torpedo armaments removed).

The corrupt and incompetent naval personnel of the Kuomintang regime in late 1940s could hardly properly maintain their war throphies at a good shape IRL, not to say properly run them. A handful number of these ships were simply left to rust in port and directly went to scrapyards several years later  without serving for a single day in their Navy. In contrast, the Post-Revolution PLAN managed to repair an Ex-Japanese escort ship that was hard damaged and lost her bow section by a USN submarine at the end of WWII and bring her back to service in 1955 with a rebuilt bow section, and after that she served in the newly-born PLAN for more than two decades and not until the 1980s had she been decommissioned and scrapped. She could still made 19 knots (her design speed) and start up rapidly from stand still (it only took three minutes) in 1978 thanks to the excellent maintenance. Personally speaking, I think she would be a better candidate for the Tier I patrol gunboat than the current Chengan.

Though the Soviet-built warships in Indonesian service broke down and turned into scrap metal almost as rapidly as the aforementioned case in KMT China after the 1965 Coup (KRI Irian was reduced into a hulk soon afterwards in 1970, after an overhaul in Soviet Far East in 1964 due to excessive machinery worn---half of the boilers became inoperable---caused by improper maintenance and extreme tropical weather), at least in their heydays they were armed and in full combat-capable state.

A Soviet-flavored branch tree is potentially possible: Tier 8 as an Indonesian Pr.30 Bis Skoryy, Tier 9 and 10 should be some sort of Type 051 preliminaries done by PRC based on contemporary Soviet destroyers.
