Hello ladies and gentlemen,

today we are proposing Independent Yugoslav Naval forces. The time period of the suggestion encompasses naval vessels used by State of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs, Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes later renamed to Kingdom of Yugoslavia, Yugoslav partisan forces and Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia. The suggestion consists of coastal, bluewater fleet and submarines. Some of the vessels while not built in Yugoslavia are nonetheless unique as they were built on the basis of Yugoslav plans or for Yugoslavia only. The tech trees include only those Austro-Hungarian ships which were used by the aforementioned states. Suggestion overall includes only one copy-paste that’s already in the game. The lack of quantity in the bluewater tech tree is due the focus on coastal defence and lack of industrial capabilites, which in turn makes the bluewater tech tree numerically inferior compared to in-game naval tech trees.

In the tech tree that we created there are 30 coastal vessels in the main tech tree +18 in the Premium/Event line with one being a squadron vehicle, Bluewater line has 8 main tech tree ships and 2 Premium/Event ships. As for submarines there are 8 of them and three of those are Premiums.
