my PRO-Ships in the german have only mystical names (zeus, thor, sol etc.).

Here in .com i decide to name my big ships like natural thing (summer, winter, rain, snow, thunder etc)

Smaller Ships (H4 etc) are named numeratic.

As im studying mining, i gave my h5 names of famous mining cities, the h6 are called after lignite (Browncoal is not the correct translation), my h8 have different names.
The h9s are called after hard coal mines in the Aachen Area, and the h10s after mines in the ruhr area.
My only h11 is called after my girlfriend.
The group of h4 is called after girls and guys who are in my mind, but im not able to do anything against them.

I tend to name my ships after a royal concept. Either titles like queen, king or princess, or name them after historic royal kings or queens.

My fighters are named numerically.

My H11 are named after something big like the Santissima Trinidad (I hope I got that right) or just giving them a big name like Gargantua.

Yeah, that one.

When they say it in reports, it's like 'yeah, 800 ppl died, huge loss', but when someone tells how they died... Crying or Very sad

just thought id reopen this thread cos theres a lot of players who werent around 6 months ago!

I on the other hand have rebuilt my fleet since then (pretty much from scratch, n'all).

My Flagship is now the H10 named HMS_Sapper (my rank in real life) but i still have the HMS_Ubique and other ships related to the Royal Engineers (including, of course HMS_RoyalEngineers!).

My H11s are named after Royal Navy aircraft carriers starting with the Ark Royal (i know it might sound like im copying Alphabravo, but its the best ship name in the WORLD!)

Medium classed ships are all named after towns ive lived in or nearby ones. In fact its just occured to me that i dont have a ship called Harrogate yet, ill correct that soon!

H4s are organised in squadrons and are named chronologically.

I use Designations From Halo.
SCS- Sole Core Ship The standard Human Attack Ship.
CCS- Command Class Ship I think, Covenant.
SGC- Star Gate Command. Human
CAR- Covenant Assault/Recon


I usually name my ships after some of the ships that were destroyed in the Battle for Reach, Elsilon Eridani System, Earth, And some of the fights in the Inner Colonies.
Also after some ships from 24th Century Star Trek.

Mine kinda grew as i became a pro user but basically it goes like this....

H3: random names
H4: various types of weapons (past and present)
H5: helicopter types
H6: tank types
H7: based loosly around leadership (as these are used as explorers)
H8: heavy cruisers (past and present British navy)
H9: Russian subs and their classes (eg Akula)
H10: elements with variations on each (eg Flame)
H11: Soviet era nuclear test codenames

works so far for me... but has become difficult to name the H4's, so ive stared newer ships as designated escorts (or fighter wings) for my H10's... with names to match their "base ship"
