ArcticuKitsu Posted May 22, 2016 Report Share Posted May 22, 2016 I have to voice my pride because this is also Victory Belles's selling point of adding all the waring naval nations into the mix. It makes me overly proud that Canadians are finally back where they belong (in a World War game) with no political washing, or political bias to them. I loved Silent Hunter 3 for adding in every nation possible for variety of encounters, as well as Victory at Sea's attempt for adding in variety. It's a real shame game developers People claim Canada's contribution was minor, yet I don't see it as such. - HMCS Saguenay (D79) Saguenay is a bit odd to me because of her 'generic' appearing art. WIth that in mind, I'm hoping for her to eventually gain some formal art [This style] to make herself more epic for her bow & stern being blown. Same with being rammed, & even causing a German freighter to damage itself in fear. She is one tough beauty, and that I still see. VB is lucky that I'm banking all my hopes onto her being awesome within the game + alternate costumes/outfits ------------ How can I not be proud? More so as a Canadian. I truly & genuinely can't wait to play as the Canadians themselves. I can't wait to command the RCN [Royal Canadian Navy] to regain that lost pride, as well as to further familiarize myself with the various "Forgotten Beauties" within. I truly want to recruit HMCS Saguenay, HMCS Skeena, HMCS Ottawa (& her reincarnations), HMCS Prince Robert, HMCS Prince David, HMCS Prince Henry, HMCS Haida, HMCS Huron, HMCS Athabaskan, HMCS Iroquious, HMCS Uganda (later Quebec), HMCS Ontario, among numerous others, even within the River Class. Way too many to note. Was even made aware on Reddit of 'HMCS Assiniboine' for ramming the same Submarine twice. I could expect her personality to reflect that, maybe even a memento, or similar. Another being HMCS Ville de Quebec (Flower-Class Corvette) for ramming a submarine. After some skimming, I'd also have to consider adding HMCS Cape Breton (K350) and HMCS New Glasgow for their class type. I'm mainly expecting HMCS Saguenay & Skeena at first. Same with the 'Trio Prince Navy' on the Pacific side of things. Do not underestimate the might of the Canadian navy, even if I do have to recruit Nera (Italy), and various others . Hoping they'll even try to gain in contact with Himeka to do a voice for some French Canadian. Maybe HMCS Ville de Quebec? A Corvette class, if they're added in. I have much pride because I see much beauty within the RCN, more so when 'animefied' into Kanmusu/Belles. It's now KanColle's turn to follow Victory Belles's lead. Let's see if I'm allowed to command my RCN in full, and if I can eventually boost it to near full combat capacity within the game this March 2017. Can't wait! Black Chicken Studio happily touched on a sweet-spot of mine that I'm now expecting to be expanded on because other studios, again, prefer to be simple minded. Thank again for HMCS Saguenay! Can't wait to hear her French-Canadian voice over. --------------- Edit: I just annoyingly found out that the 'Trio Prince Navy' where commissioned late into service in 1940 so I'll have to wait a long while to even see them in VB. I assumed 1939 because they were an early demand for the Canadians which now bugs me, even because they're not really assault ships. They were meant more as a basic defense for the Japanese + to attack merchants, which they actually did. They were then converted seperatly into troop troop transport; Robert into A/A. They still however were useful. Seeing them, I'd even expect to see Bismarck in the '40's update. That just irritated me. Well, I'll at least enjoy the destroyers at the least. Noteworthy Canadian Vessels: Canadian Vessels of Interest/Belles: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ships_of_the_Royal_Canadian_Navy <- A list for reference. HMCS Saguenay - River-Class Destoryer (Already in, & front page) HMCS Skeena - River Class Destroyer (Saguenay's sister) HMCS Assiniboine - River-Class Destroyer (U-210 rammer) HMCS Haida (G63) - Tribal-Class Destroyer (Canada's pride, and at times a flagship. She's now a museum ship.) HMCS Huron (G24) - Tribal-Class Destroyer HMCS Iroquious - Tribal-Class Destroyer. She even escorted Prinz Eugen. HMCS Athabaskan (G07) - Tribal-Class Destroyer (She perished in a torpedo attack, yet had a reincarnation as (R79), nicknamed 'Athabaskan II' post-war.) HMCS U-190 - A German submarine which sunk HMCS Esquimuilt (in a sleeping state) which then was used in a Canadian manner. I doubt it, yet I'd love to see her as a German, then with a Canadian personality in the game. HMCS Prince Robert - Armed Merchant Cruiser & an AA vessel. One of the three Prince vessels acting as a navy apart. HMCS Prince Henry - Armed Merchant Cruiser & Troop Transport. One of the three Prince vessels acting as a navy apart. HMCS Prince David - Armed Merchant Cruiser & Troop Transport. One of the three Prince vessels acting as a navy apart. HMCS Uganda - Crown Colony Class Light Cruiser which saw battles in the Atlantic, Mediterranean, & even Pacific. Her radar assisted in spotting Japanese, even daily of Japanese morning air-raids. She even had her episode of mutiny when her Canadian identity was being suppressed by Americans. HMCS Ontario - Minatour-Class Light Cruiser which was in service during WW2, yet came too late to see action. She was in the Pacific, and visit Japan, yet turned into a training ship. (Not counting the aircraft carriers because it's half & half. Similar to how I avoided adding in American lent ships when focusing purely on Canadian-made or Canadian manned ships from the get-go. That, or they had to be overly noteworthy to go from British to Canadian hands, such as the HMCS Uganda.) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
