Well, since I have already joined the dark CV side, might as well have a check at them. :fish_book:

Red Baron - HISTORY

I have just come across proposals that suggest WG should offer a special permacamo for M. Richthofen in honor of her namesake.

I don't know what it's like to be Russian.

I mean imagine having never beaten an invading army that your own weather couldn't deal with?

I guess you just kind of give thanks that your winter is harsher than your own armed forces.

That's gotta mess with your psyche though.

It might make someone invent some kind of fantasy world, a game about war or something, you know, as escapism.

And in that fantasy war gaming world, you might change the rules so that your own Russian military equpiment, unlike in the real world, is actually more dangerous than snow!

Then, I suppose you might also make one of the armies that invaded you seem really weak! Yeah that'll learn them for making your winter beat them!

So, maybe, the... Germans! Yeah! So, lets make our Russian equipment good (in this fantasy world at least) and Germans bad! Yeah!

Hey I know! Lets just MAKE UP a heap of Russian stuff! Paper is a KIND of real isn't it!?

Ha ha Russian's stronk now and don't need silly old Jack Frost to defend glorious motherland!

Ha ha GERMANS are weak!

Weak weak German! Suffer in your lederhosen!

 

Ahem.

What I mean is.

Given the track record... who actually thinks the German CVs will be worth more than a pinch of powdered glass from a crushed monocle...?

Mate, you are way off the mark here. The Russians won the war by bleeding all across the steppes and all the way to Berlin. They spent nearly 10 million soldiers lives winning that war, you need to remember every one of those men sacrificed everything to end the nazi reign over Europe. Stalin's pre-war purges may have weakened the standing army, but once shit got real, the Russian people rose to the occasion and bled out hard. Have some respect man. https://www.nationalww2museum.org/students-teachers/student-resources/research-starters/research-starters-worldwide-deaths-world-war

ps. My own heritage is German, my own family was from East Prussia and lost absolutely everything. I have no love of Russia, but I do RESPECT them.

pps. The German CV's will be fun to play, no different to the existing CV lines. The AA will shoot the planes down faster than you will want them to (as the CV player) and slower than you want as the non CV player.

I expect the KM CVs will be better CQC ships than any other recent German ships.

They will wreck your ship if you get close to them.

But the question is, will you do so before they gun you down from range?

As far as being an actual CV goes, I expect lacklustre performance tied to a gimmick which doesn’t really stand up in the current meta.

Planes will be made up carrier versions of ground based planes.

 

 

 

 

Now when the Russians introduce CVs...

That actually looks neat. And basically I can blast this when I play her;

Militarize the Rhineland, and MAKE ALSACE-LORRAINE GERMAN AGAIN!

I'm a little disappointed with the chosen name. But at least it still makes sense. She is named after the German airship designer. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/August_von_Parseval

So badass, his name stars with "Man". Second ship with Sabaton's Stamp of Approval.

This line should be interesting, although we know how hard the nerf bat will hit them later.

Oh please, using his name is extra ironic considering how he is a FIGHTER pilot and CVs in WoWS now no longer have usable fighters.

I see. But what will actually happen?

What will reflect on me?

And how will that impact me?

Germany lost because Hitler fought a war on two damn fronts. Between losing their industrial capacity to Allied bombs and their inability to touch the Soviet industrial heartland, they were doomed.

That is why in HoI4 I either 1) concentrate east first and smash the soviets back into Vladivostok or 2) deal with England and France first to prevent opening up the Western Front. Never, ever both. Unless I am already in late game and am using soviet slave labour to power my industrial might.

Information vague and can have many subjective meanings, including none.

Deck too short how about load heavy plane on the deck? How can they too land with limited space? I afraid that the plane no upforce downforce drag force enough to take off even you have catapult 

 

I'm think about if they use GK as CV? 340 maters can give more B-25 land-take off

And yet, nothing is more ironic than naming a Nazi-era fictional cruiser after the guy who was neither:

  1. A figure in the Kaiserlichemarine/Kriegsmarine. (A Field Marshal of the Army)
  2. A prominent member of the National Socialist Party. (The man who kept the Angry Australian *smack* Austrian Guy in check)

Say that to Gneisenau, Scharnhorst, Blucher and Seydlitz. Maybe also Bismarck.

And Prince Eugene as bonus.

 

It's not like WG reuse names of old ships of the same navy/nation or anything.
