At the very least, do nothing else but delete the flags on them and call them "Generic DD," "Generic Escort(whatever the Romanian ship is)."

Dumping the sails on the Sea Truck would make it look much better (the mast might be for cargo loading anyway, I'd need to check since I have few (if any) images of a Sea Truck under sail)

I repainted the tanker in PS for this pic. Look howe much better it looks for the PTO. Dump flags altogether, (or add an IJN flag instead) and call them "Generic Trawler," "Generic Hunter," "Generic Submarine," "Generic PT."

Changing the guns, and the overall paint job might be a huge pain in the ***, so just eliminating the flags would be so great, and so easy. Since ship attack in the PTO was usually at low low level, you really notice the flags, so subbing is very anyti-immersive.

The Hunter and Trawler otherwise make excellent subchasers for the PTO (though adding in the PF supression code/DM would also be very cool for these).

Or make them skinnable.

Nice idea if making them reskinnable is easier than:

1. Copy and paste a ship, change name to "Generic _shiptype_".
2. Open skin, erase flag, save.
3. Tell game about new ship types.

They could so that and make them skinnable, that would be good.
