The Indefatigable Class battlecruisers of 1913 might be interesting, seeing how (until the WNT forced them to be scrapped) both BC Australia and BC New Zealand served in the namesake countries after WWI. It would certainly give them a reason for being there.

In fact there are quite a few pre-WWI British dreadnaughts that would be suitable, in that they might be kept in service were it not for the WNT. The UK had a large number of heavy warships prior to the WNT, many of which might be deemed suitable for low threat duties (IE the pacific) well into the 1930s.

But that is just my opinion.

I just finished Iron Duke (also already have HMS Canada). Not sure about going back any further than them, though. What about cruisers, destroyers or auxiliaries? Any missing from Stock AE?

So far I've come up with the following ship sides, many of them ships that were scrapped after the WNT (as Shark7 suggested doing):

BB Lion
BC Lion (1912)
BB Malaya (have both my version and Big B's to choose from, well mine is actually a cut and paste of one of Big B's ship sides)
BC Tiger (2 versions)
BC G3
BB N3
BC Hood (Big B's excellent version)
CV Furious (Big B)
CV Ark Royal (Big B)
CV Eagle (Big B)
BB Canada
BB Iron Duke (two versions)
BC Courageous
BB King George V
BC Australia
BB Erin
BB Orion
BB Colossus
CA York
CA Surrey
AV Albatross


Any other sides that are missing or that might be done for the Royal Navy?

Well since your takings suggestions/requests :

BB Agincourt

Light Cruisers:

Arethus, Caliope, Cambrian, Caroline, Birkenhead, and Centaur

some of the older destroyers as well, but really you have so many to choose from their its not worth listing them all.

Also, for the US

Tillman Maximum Battleship. It is the ultimate what if after all.

Just added Agincourt to the WNT thread. For some reason I forgot all about her.

I don't know. For some reason the project strikes me as "too far out." (Unlike the Germans bombing Pearl Harbor, for example.)

Oddly enough, the thing that seemed most outlandish was the thing that went far into the actual planning stages. Fact is stranger than fiction as they say.

But for the purpose of WiTP, the Habakkuk would not be suitable, as it was designed to operated in the colder regions of the North Atlantic, IMO.

A ship made partially of ice would be a bit of a liability in the South Pacific.

Bumping this great resource so it doesn't fall off the last page into forum limbo.
