Hearts of Iron IV – More Ship Names

More Ship Names for Hearts of Iron IV

A Massive Expansion of Naval Ship Names! (MAR 2019 Update!)
Works with HOI 4 Ver. 1.6.1

Hate having bland ships without glory and uniqueness?
Have you ever had your immersion broken by the default ships names (ex. USS Light Cruiser 1)?
Do you want to rule the seas with your possible hometown named ship?

Well then this is the Mod for you!

This mod adds a lot of Shipnames that updates your default ship list. Names that is rather Lore Friendly

These ships aren’t necessarily real, as realisticly there wouldn’t be this much ships in a country’s navy but at least you have names for your lions at sea.

Currently only available for the United States Navy and the Imperial Japanese Navy but more is coming so stay tuned!

Do note that some ships may have the same name because either a mistake or a pre-existing name/event.
