    This is the famous, early 20th Century Greek warship named apparently after the guy that put alot of money into it. I imagine it'll work great as any generic dreadnaught-ish ship. Also of note, you can spot this thing 'from space' using the satellite images on google maps:mischief: .

    El J would love this for AoI. It would fit in very well.

    The attack look a bit weak, but this doesn't take away from the fact it's very cool!

    Question: Does it really sink that fast in game?

    Thanks everyone!

    Tank_Guy#3: Yes, the animations shown in the preview should run at that speed in-game too.

    Older, pre-World War I ship units are a rarity to find. This is an amazing vessel, and an excellent example of a unit type that has very few actual units. This ship works well alongside Wyrmshadow's Casemate BB's and his HMS Dreadnought.

    Excellent work!

    It's just south of Athens, the town is called Faliron, but really if you're just looking at the satellite image you can't tell it's seperate from Athens. Look for a harbor, and a big boat (however, I will add that the stern seems to have a tent or something over it).

    It kinda looks like a French predreadnought ...


    It's basically good, but the death seems off to me. Can't really describe what's wrong ... the sinking motion just doesn't look natural.
