After Sept. 1 1939 eh?
-Enterprise and Yorktown kind HAVE TO be included... Two of the more famous USN carriers... Hornet as well, maybe with her carrying a model of a B-25 bomber with her as a reminder of the Doolittle raid...
-One I really want to see is Graf Zeppelin~ She might be tough to consider as 'completed', but she was technically launched by the time the war started, and would have been operationally finished by mid-1940... (Damn you Germany for all those production delays/gear rerouting!!)
-I don't really know of many British/Polish/Italian/Turkish/Russian ships to add also... I'm trying to keep it to actually built designs that really aren't copies of other nations ships... I'm sure England's later battleship/carrier designs will make it in!
-Please tell me HMS Campbeltown will be around~ Would love to hear her thoughts on having been used as a massive ship-bomb to destroy the gates at the Normandie dry dock... (Her original name prior to RN service was USS Buchanan~ Buchanan would be around already, since she was operating since 1919)
-The soviet submarine S-13 would be an interesting one, simply because of her involvement in the "largest loss of life in a single ship sinking"... She was commissioned in 1941, so I think she fits into that year category, despite her launch in 1939...
I can't think of any other notable ships... But, I know these few have some interesting/historic stories~
(I'm also crap at thinking of art designs... Feel free to come up with what any of these possible Belles would wear, since the best I can think of is military uniforms of their country with a few personal additions)
(Also, I know that Enterprise/Yorktown were around pre-Sept. 1939, but we haven't seen/heard anything about them~)
