Default [WIP] Mod 1879 - War of the Pacific (Perú + Bolivia vs Chile)

Hello, kaleuns!
It's a Mod about "War of the Pacific", 1879 - 1883, between Perú + Bolivia vs Chile.
In the naval campaign, peruvian and chilean steam-warships fought during a time of evolution on naval design and naval artillery.
I'll trying to recreate both fleets, and their diversity. Also the sail/steam merchant ships too.
At this moment 2 vessels are 100% functional:
1. Monitor "Huáscar" (peruvian) (playable)
2. Corvette "Esmeralda" (chilean) (IA)
- Monitor Huáscar (1864):
This legendary peruvian ironclad had very valuable and significant role in action under the command of Ctrlmte. Miguel Grau, until she was captured by chilean navy.
Length 66.9 m (219 ft), 1,199 tons, speed 12 knots.
Armament:
2x254 mm, 300 lb Armstrong guns in a Coles turret
2x120 mm, 40 lb Armstrong guns
1x76 mm, 12 lb canon (stern)
1x0.44 cal Gatling gun
Armoured ram bow
Player can shoot all artillery, except 120 mm Armstrong starboard gun (IA). Gatling gun works as AA gun too.
Ramming works acording to the circumstances
A 3D model of Miguel Grau is on the bridge, and another of grummet Alberto Medina on the wheel

- Corvette Esmeralda (1855):
Wooden hulled steam corvette, sunk by Huáscar (ramming), fighting under the command of Captain Arturo Prat.
Length 64 m (210 ft) excluding bowsprit, 854 tons, speed 8 knots (in her last combat, only 2 knots)
Armament:
12x Armstrong 40 p. rifled guns+ 4x Whitworth 40 p. smoothbore guns
but 14x Armstrong 40 p. guns in the Mod, all as "Main guns"
This warship replaces british DD Class J.

The next ships will be: gunboat "Covadonga" and frigate "Independencia"
So many thanks to the genious modder Chinese-U47, his "Warship Mod" was an example and starting point to this Mod (with autorization), and for his contribution to Silent Hunter.
Thanks also to all the modders and their marvelous tutorials published here on subsim.
Some videos about Huáscar from Mod 1879 for Silent Hunter III

The ships are gorgeous! What do the personal screens (F2, F3, F4) look like?

Thanks!
And these ships are very emblematic to Perú and Chile.

Except weapons view, some new static 3D crew and uniform details (gallery), interior views are the same. I hope someday edit them.

New crew

Awesome! I already imagine prehistorical submarines like: The Confederate Pioneer or H.L. Hunley armed with spar torpedoes hunting them along chile coast

Thanks for the comments!
Perú built "Toro Submarino" (Submarine Bull) in 1880, the first operational submarine in Latinoamérica. Her first mission was against chilean armored frigates ("Cochrane" and "Blanco Encalada") using torpedoes, but informed by spies, Chile moved the battleships and the mission was aborted.
Lenght: 15 m, Max. depth: 72 feet, speed (submerged): 4 knots
Otto type gasoline engine for surface running and electric motors for submerged operations. Instrumentation included pressure gauges, depth meter and ballast tank water level. Was scuttled (with other peruvian ships) to avoid capture by the enemy (16/01/1881)
Chile built "Flach" submarine in 1866, but she sunk during tests (03/05/1866)

I'm thrilled, not that I know much about this historical incident.. Do you think you could mirror this event into Sh3 ?
