To inject a bit of life back into this, and a pair of questions I’ve just had for the Belles:
is it possible for a Belle to change their outlook on their own country or politics? I.e. a German Belle who is proud of her country and fascist comes around to the ideals of Democracy via interactions with an American Captain/Belles, or an English Belle all for King and Country turning Communist thanks to one of the many Soviet Belles and desires to overthrow the monarchy for the people?
Also, the Belles have equipment on their designs (see Belfast’s main guns strapped behind her and her AA gun harp, or Rawalpindi having a 6 pounder around her wrist). When different equipment gets mounted, is that reflected on the Belles themselves? If swapped with a bunch of 40mm Bofors, would Nubian stop carrying her Vickers MG and instead be replaced with a larger Bofors? Would Rawalpindi find herself lugging a 38cm turret if that was equipped to her?
