Ship classification

Mon Oct 31, 2016 7:37 am

A small point in the general scheme of things, but the OoB for Germany's Asian naval squadron (von Spee) is way incorrect. The major elements there (Scharnhorst and Gneisenau) are represented as "Reconnaissance" Cruisers when in fact they were state of the art Armoured Cruisers (well at least as state of the art as armoured cruisers ever got).

On the broader level, the combat weights of pretty much all of the naval classes need attention. I'm seeing, for example, a couple of British battlecruisers and three armoured cruisers defeating four Austrian dreadnoughts. In the words of Lawrence Wright, "Not likely!"

Aurora is in there somewhere. I recall sinking her in a recent playthrough and wondering if I could also take out the Potemkin.

The Aurora is in the game as a Light Cruiser as part of the the Baltic Fleet in Rewal Port (modern Tallinn) in Estonia.

According to Conway reference:

The Pallada (if you meant that) was an armored cruiser, Bayan Class (with Admiral Makarov and Bayan, a previous Bayan lost in Russo-japanese War).

The Aurora, a cruiser of the Pallada Class (with Diana, Pallada lost in Russo-japanese War).

yeah, you got name right :), and yes i simply asumed that aurora was same class as pallada, they have to be same class in game, didnt thought that original pallada should be allready lost and replaced with namelike of different class.
so looks everthing is ok.
