Default WW2 Allied Ships?

Similar to the thread on German WW2 Ships, I'd like to ask about Allied ships. Specifically warships.

At the moment, we have:
  • LCVP Higgens landing boat
  • LST Mk II landing ship
  • USS Samuel Chase

Certainly the latter two allow the making of the semblances of a trans-channel convoy.

You can use the Dry Cargo Ships (Ivanov and Yukushev). There is also a tanker (Elnya), which vaguely looks like a T2 Tanker (without the mid-ship bridge). It would be convenient for these three to be added to the USSR roster, so we get them by default on the Allied side for WW2 mission builders, although at least there is a work-around (just remember to add "Russia" to the Allied coalition when building the mission).

However, what is missing is some form of warship. Even just one design would be extremely useful for putting together convoys, landing forces, shore bombardment and docked naval forces.

Yes, there are some destroyers in DCS, but they are all Cold War or Modern and are armed with surface-to-air missiles.

Some RN or USN escort ship of WW2 vintage would be really nice! Some examples:
  • USN Gleaves-class destroyer
  • RN Hunt-class destroyer
  • RN U-Class destroyer (alternatively S, V or W-Classes)
  • RCN Flower Corvette

Any chances?

Allies definitely need a period warship.
These are also really handy for providing AA capability out over the channel, or off ports - which I've wanted to do as a mission maker on quite a few occasions.

The USS Samuel Chase is OK in the interim .. but doesn't really fit the bill.

For all that, I’d like some more official versions
