Santisma is an awesome ship. I prefer the USS Niagara and the Ingermanland, but everyone have their preferences.

Did you see Juan Sebastian el Cano? It's a training ship for the Royal Spanish Navy. It is a four-masted topsail, steel-hulled barquentine (schooner barque). Built in 1925. :)

I didn't know 4-masted ships existed, I thought full-rigged ships only had 3 masts. Also, is this during or after the Napoleonic Wars?

I want to take back of some of my words that I said about Spain and Portugal there. I have done a bit more research and I found a more trust-able source. Mine was not really correct as I also found wrong things about  other stuff. Apologies for the misleading inconveniences!

Again I would really like to see more unique countries like Spain in this thread.

Also can I make a similair thread but then for Portugal as I like the faction itself too?

Honestly, let's see some reasons just listed of why it will be so good.

1. It hasn't been on Napoleonic Wars. There was a faction replacement mod, but it never was added in as a faction in the DLC.
2. Good-looking units with a lot of variety and a lot of information about them.
3. It will be something new compared to the already massively known Prussia, Austria and Russia. This could be a nice change.
4. Two-sided history on the conflict. You had Spain that fought against the French and a Bonapartist Spain that fought alongside them.
5. It fits the setting of the uniforms in the game. It was confirmed they are set for 1809 and during that period of the war, well the Peninsular War raged on.
6. Spanish Navy. Yes, it would be more interesting to see, if it could take a part in the naval aspect of Holdfast.
7. Expansion towards the Spanish community. Well, I'm sure they as well wanna play their own nation as most people do.

Oh yes, variety is what makes this suggestion godly, and seemingly a lot of people are up for it, so why not do it?

I hope it is added in after UK and France. Only that I couldn't change my vote to that after I started thinking what good it would make for the game.

What the hell? It was never confirmed that the game was set in 1809, they even made a post stating that they wouldn't tie themselves to that time period.

[5:27 PM] Refleax: Hey! Thank you very much. Most of our uniforms are based from 1809 but we don't specifically stick to a particular year as long as it's within the Napoleonic era. We feel that it's better for the game this way since we won't be limiting ourselves when it comes to the inclusion of additional content in the game.
