As you may or may not have seen in skratchR's amazing Iberian Imperial Navy thread, I completely ran out of ideas and said he inspired me to build up a proper navy for the Mexican Empire.
So here it goes!
(I don't have any lore or anything, but if anyone wants to write some then go right ahead!)
Baja California-Class Heavy Cruiser
Sonora-Class AA Frigate
Quetzal-Class Aircraft Carrier
XCQ-2 Naval Fighter

Namesake: The northwestern state of Sonora, Mexico
Height: 30m (counting from the bottom of the hull to the top of the mast)
(Resource cost: 27965)
4x3 25mm autocannon mounts
2x4 40mm Bofors autocannon mounts
4x .50 cal Browning Machineguns
2x 20mm Orelikon autocannons
As you can see the ship has absolutely no anti ship cannons, as it was built purely for AA and anti patro boat roles, but it might be able to take on ships of similar size to itself.

Oh my god it's so cute! I love it! You should make the deck 25mm into flak 88s
RE: Mexican Imperial Navy - zzebra - 2017-04-21 01:00 AM
Oh, good idea! Might make that into a subclass since I kinda like the full autocannon ship.
Also fun fact, this is the smallest ship I've ever built.
RE: Mexican Imperial Navy - Unleashedfury25 - 2017-04-21 01:06 AM
Wait... how long is it? And who would Mexico have sided with if they joined, because you can use the 88 or the British version
RE: Mexican Imperial Navy - zzebra - 2017-04-21 01:10 AM
Assuming the Mexican Empire never really fixed relations with the US, they'd definitely have accepted Germany's offer during WWI, so take a wild guess.
Also it's 85m long.

Hermosillo, a Sonora-Class Frigate
The second ship of the of the Sonora-Class.
Namesake: Hermosillo, Sonora's capital.
Same as Sonora class, except two of the triple 25mm cannon mounts have been replaced by 88mm cannons.

I'm mixing pre-WWI to WWII ships in.
I wasn't going to up blueprints yet, but since you asked here's the Hermosillo (since it actually has the fixes i wanted to do to Sonora)
Oh and keep in mind, they're not built for actual fighting, some stuff isn't fully functional.

Off to a good start, looking forward to what's to come.
