From: St.Petersburg, Russia
I've sent the in-game specs of my proposal to you, John, to avoid further misunderstanding. Checking the agreed-upon parts of the fleet before we continue with the discussion...
BatDiv1--Nagato, Mutsu, Kaga, Tosa
BatDiv2--Ise, Hyuga, Fuso, Yamashiro (None of them modified, conversion options present from the start)
BatDiv3--Kongo, Hiei, Haruna, Kirishima
BatDiv4--Owari, Kii (I'd prefer "Satsuma" for historical symbolism, though :)) available, Musashi, Shinano in construction (9x410/50, 29-30 knots battleships. I'll try to master Springsharp program to gauge realistic displacement, or find some existing alt-battleships proposals.)
We have all needed art for the battleships.
CruDiv1: (Myoko-Class) Myoko, Nachi, Haguro, Ashigara
CruDiv2: (Takao-Class) Takao, Atago, Maya, Chokai
CruDiv3: (Mogamis-as-CAs, so named after mountains) Niitaka, Tone, Chikuma, Kurama
CruDiv4: (Improved Mogami class) Iwaki, Hikari (Mogamis-as-CLs) Mogami, Mikuma
Building CAs Kasagi and Ikoma (Improved Mogami class) will be assigned to CruDiv4 upon completion, or as needed to replace losses.
CruDiv5: Aoba, Kinugasa, Kako, Furutaka (9x155mm armament)
Leaders of destroyer divisions: Yubari, Naka, Sendai, Jintsu, Kako
Training cruisers: Kuma, Tama, Kitakami
To be assigned to carrier forces as recon/AA defense ships: Yahagi, Agano, ???, ??? (I noticed you think that four of these should be built, if so, two last ships probably should be available late in the war)
In reconstruction as CLAAs/torpedo cruisers, whatever the player prefers: Nagara, Isuzu, Natori, Yura, Kinu, Abukuma.
Reconstructed as CS: Oi, Kiso
Reconstructed as CM: Tenryu, Tatsuta.
Art needed: the scout CLAA, 5500k reconstructed CLAA, reconstructed CS, reconstructed CM, preferably also slightly modified art for Mogami variants and for Aobas/Furutakas with new armament. I'll try to find concept art for the first four when I can, which is not today - easy to do for concepts I lifted from somewhere, not so for others).
