Daisen - Tier IX Japanese Battleship

Dasien_header
A fast battleship with powerful guns and torpedo armament. Based on projects drawn up in the 1910s, the ship inherits a number of archaic features, including the placement of anti-mine guns in casemates.

The battleship is distinguished by her few but accurate main battery guns. The ship’s armament is also represented by torpedo tubes with a high range and torpedo damage. The battleship has a very high speed, but a large turning circle. 
The consumables arsenal of the ship is represented by the Damage Control Party, a Repair Party which restores an increased number of HP per second, as well as the choice between a Fighter or a Spotter with a significantly increased operating time. 
Daisen has poor armor for a Tier IX battleship and large dimensions, which make the optimal gameplay happen at medium-long range. At the same time, her good speed allows, if necessary, to change flanks or dictate range of engagement. 

Until the beginning of the 20th century, large Japanese warships—namely, battleships and cruisers—most often were named in honour of mountains. That’s not only because Japan is a mountainous country, but also because in traditional Japanese religion, mountains are considered the habitats of of powerful deities. Since many of these mountains are volcanoes, the association with powerful ships spewing equally destructive fire is quite appropriate.
According to the rules approved in 1905, the names of the mountains began being assigned to armored cruiser of the Japanese Navy, and then to the battlecruisers that eventually replaced them. However, in the case of ships being reclassified after refit—for example, Kongo-class battlecruisers which were converted into battleships in the 1930s—they were not renamed.
Our battleship Daisen is a development of a fast battlecruiser designed in 1916 as part of the first phase of the Navy's construction program known as the 8-8 Program. It is assumed that it also would have underwent a major modernization in 1939, retaining its name in honor of a volcanic mountain in southwestern Japan, considered sacred since ancient times, and where a highly revered Buddhist monastery has been located since the 8th century CE. Its temple complex is included in the list of Japan’s national treasures.

Colossus - British Tier VIII Aircraft Carrier

collossus_header
The lead ship in a series of “light naval aircraft carriers” built in the UK at the height of World War II. The Colossus is an intermediate link between high-speed attack aircraft carriers and low-speed escort aircraft carriers.

The aircraft carrier is armed with three types of squadrons - attack aircraft with AP rockets, torpedo bombers, and bombers that drop HE bombs in level flight.
Attack aircraft rockets have good armor penetration, which will allow them to deal good damage to various types of targets. The torpedo bombers have a good health pool, but low speed. Also, the torpedo bomber squadron contains only 2 attacking flights of three aircraft. The bombers carry a large number of high-explosive bombs, but have a large spread ellipse.
At the same time, the aircraft carrier itself has a low speed, which will make it difficult to quickly change position. She also has no secondary armament and weak air defense.
