New Shipping in SHIV Add-On?

I actually haven't picked up the new SHIV add-on yet, and I was curious as to what new ships are included (I am particularly interested in new merchants). I have already seen the screenshots in the screenshot thread, but I was wondering if someone had a comprehensive list including both new names and nation rosters. I am already aware of the following new ships:

UK:
- Fiji class CL
- J class DD
- V/W class DD
- Flower class corvette
- River class frigate

Germany:
- Graf Spee class CA

Merchants:
- Generic large tanker that actually looks like a T3 kitbash.
- UK Hog Island Type A freighter.
- Medium Modern Passenger/Cargo vessel (rather ugly, I might add:p).

Most of these I have seen in Rolf Eschke's screenshots, although some of those were of ships already included in stock SHIV (such as the GE auxiliary cruiser, armed trawler and tugboat). I would just like to know what other new ships there are, and to what nations they have been assigned (also, the exact nations of the above ships would be greatly appreciated). Thanks.

There's also a British Medium Old Tanker included with the addon, but it would be far more accurate to call it Dutch Medium Old Tanker! (Anybody know how to alter this????) "Paula" was one of a class of four, but three served under the Dutch flag- "Paula" herself was scuttled in Tandjong Priok harbour in March 1942, salved by the Japanese and subsequently entered the Tenno's service; she was found sunk in shallow waters in Singapore harbour at the end of the war, raised and returned to her owners. I've made a small mod which corrects the British roster, adds "Paula" and her two sisters to the Dutch roster and also adds an entry to the Japanese roster for the period "Paula" was in Japanese hands.

The German tanker is the Charlotte Schliemann. It's to the left in this picture:

Comprehensive List?

Thank you for the information. But does anyone have a comprehensive list of all new shipping in the add-on?

I haven't gotten my disk yet, but what does the names.cfg in Roster look like? I'd be interested in the new ship types.

The ship types are at the top of that file.

War Melody?

It's too bad though that they didn't convert the Small Coastal Vessel, Small Tanker (actually Patapsco class) and Armed Merchants Cruiser (which would have made a good converted transport) from SHIII while they were adding those SHIII warships. Those three would have been good additions, as they are useful to the Allied rosters and are also quite good models. However, I wouldn't bother adding the SHIII T2 (bad model), C2, C3 (also a very bad model), Passenger Liner, Fishing Boat, or Trawler.

Probably left-overs from that poor excuse of a game called SH2.

That one is interesting. Little bit of a Cold War hint there...

SHII, SHIII, and SHIV ships

@ Kapitan Phillips - I think M. Sarsfield was just joking about the poor quality of a few SHIII models by comparing them to SHII, which was actually a pretty lousy game in and of itself. However, ironically, SHII had a more accurate T2 tanker model than SHIII, although the poly count was lower.

However, if one looks at the stock SHIII Small Merchant (NKSs) one will see that it is a higher-poly version of the Small Cargo from SHII.

This was a very good idea to add to the .cfg - many times have I wished for something similar for SHIII when working on GWX or on my own installations.

Maybe. That was left over from SHIII.

BTW - Still no screenshot of the War Melody?
