To guard our sanity, we decided not to begin naming each small ship aswell, since most of them don't survive a week at the rate the naval war is going right now anyway. I'm sure there are at least 35 KMS Dresden aswell
Somewhere there is a mod on these forums that adds very many unit names of all sorts. I suggest that one.
I think it's this one.

In April, it was becoming obvious that Japan's situation in Indochina was becoming perilous: a counter-strike to break the Indochinese pocket had been fought to a standstill, and a German invasion in South-Vietnam opened yet another front for the Japanese.
One week later, the Home Command was commissioned and immediately sent to the Pacific. Grand Admiral Vian, another important Admiral during the Free Fleet Rebellion, was given the honor of leading the new fleet. The flagship of the fleet, the “HMS Invincible”, was promptly renamed the “HMS House of York”, as a sailing monument to the bravery of the Loyalist rebels during the War of the Roses.
Near the end of April, Field Marshall Van Geyte and Grand Admiral De Nil, in conjunction with several other high-ranking admirals from both the Kriegsmarine and the Royal Navy, had finished the May Offensives plan. During the end of April and the month of May, the Royal Navy and the Kriegsmarine would unleash a co-ordinated attack on all Japanese strategic locations in the South-China Sea. If Japan were to lose these strategic points, it will be virtually defenceless against raiding Pact navies, and forced to send it’s fleet out of hiding and confront the Royal Navy head-on. A new stage in the war for the Pacific had begun.

Chapter XI: The War in the East
On the 1st of May 1943, Portuguese ambassadors arrived in Berlin to declare a formal armistice between the Portuguese Empire and the Channel Pact. Portugal, one of the last remaining European colonial powers, had been defeated.
While the Portuguese government collapsed, the US quickly occupied a former Portuguese island off the West Coast of Africa, Sao Tomé, using it as a base of operations for bombing Pact positions in Africa and Southern-Europe. In the meanwhile, the United Kingdom began expanding the Royal Marines, preparing itself for the May offensives and extended war for the Pacific Islands.
On the 16th of May, 1943 a US Marine corps attacked the defenders at the Cap Verde Islands. General Manhattan resisted valiantly, but was no match for the American Marines. The Capverde garrison was defeated and captured, Manhattan presumed KIA.

Was Macau yours and did the Japanese capture it or were they at war with Portugal on their own?

I always defend the Cap Verde Islands and the Azores with a minimum of 3 divisions and coast fort. The American AI positively loves throwing divisions at them.
So I play Germany '36 all the time - SO WHAT?

Start operation 'Saving General Manhattan'.
After the loss of contact with Capverde, the Channel Pact immediately detached a joint attack force to retake the vital island quickly, before the Americans had a chance of organising a coherent defence and using the island as an airport to bomb Europe.
In the pocketed Indochina, the war raged on as Pact forces struggled to overcome the powerfull Japanese defence. It soon became clear that Weiss had underestimated the Japanese armies, who held the northern mountain chain with great dedication.
Two weeks later in the Grand Banks Sea, another mayor naval engagement occured between The Royal Navy and the USN...
Sorry for the smallishness, next update is a whopper so I had to respect cliffhangers here . See you tomorrow!
Nice work in reaching Bangkok, surely they will be annexable soon which will really help you in the Indochina theatre.
