A quick note, France also have Experimental Carriers but they were planned for WW2 but got Ulitmately cancelled due to the Third Reich capturing most of France.

I do wonder what French CV Gimmick would be. Ship Speed seems a bit pointless Given most CV’s don’t go anywhere. Plane speed seems like too much headache for other ships because spotting. And planes would probably end up overshooting.

Pizza BB gimmick? No idea. SAP shells don’t make sense for a BB. Maybe a shorter range, low detect ability, faster kiting BB which can defect well when angled?

What are the existing BBs like?

Speaking of Pizza BB, what happened to Impero? Initially I thought she was a testbed for AL Littorio, but AL Littorio turns out to be a Roma clone (has no SAP, & smoke).

I think the Baguette CV gimmick should be one of these:

  • Fast plane cruise speed, but without engine boost..
  • Fast plane rebuild time, but the planes have very weak survivability (the exact opposite of UK CVs).

This one would fit at T8.

Bearn could be the T6.

An old suggestion thread. But has both odd and even tier CV.

I do not have T9 and T10 CV but a BB hull conversion is possible.
I also do not have T4 for MN and RM. They seem to not have interest in CV during WW1(?).

Currently, both RN and KM T4 CV are really T5 CV. Due to their advance design.

That said I am going to speculate:

MN
T4 ??
T6 Bearn
T8 Joffre
T10 Richelieu / Alsace hull conversion

 

I will also throw in RM CV

RM
T4 ??
T6 Aquila
T8 Sparviero
T10 Littorio / UP.41 hull conversion

 

Edit: @Reinhard_of_Avercland beat me to it.

The possibility of SAP is very high.

Just don't know if it is for bombers only, or attackers only, or both.

From what I recall, originally, Impero is armed with SAP and AP, but somewhere WG changed it to HE and SAP. Same as Paulo Emilio.
Italian BB have high velocity guns.
So either the high velocity will increase SAP and HE penetration or WG will also give them special treatment and have 1/4 or 1/5 pen value.
Impero use 1/6 standard pen value if I recall correctly.

But she has not been seen in testing for a while.

Oh, last time I remember, Pizza BB has Exhaust Smoke. :Smile_trollface:

 

Paulo Emilio on the other hand is very active in testing.

I am wondering if they will release pasta DD or BB next. Since Paulo Emilio has extensive testing and Impero suddenly went off the radar.

Speaking of went off the radar, Leone is also silent.

Maybe this one. Looks a bit too modern, but so does Rhein.

Duquesne.thumb.png.574609ee67007e1a289f756b25de74e8.png

Yeah. Looks like both MN Duquesin hull / DeGrasse hull and RM Trento Hull will be T4.

Eventhough their size and advancement is T5 level.

@S0und_Theif They might also announce some Operations returning, including Submarines as a new class for the game too.

Please Hermes and Cherry Blossom (without nation lock).

I did not have T8 back then.
Now I have T8 (Except CV).

Though I wish they make T5 and T8 operations as well.
