WoWS: IJN Kaga Leaked

View post on

Tier: 7
Plane capacity: 90
„Its plane capacity is almost equivalent to Taiho, and WG initially used Akagi as T8 carrier prior to CBT. Japanese CVBG-1 (Kaga & Akagi) were the response to Lexington at that time, and Akagi was converted from Amagi’s hull, while Kaga was converted from Tosa’s hull; Kaga has a bit larger plane capacity than Akagi’s.”

Thanks to J. for sending this to me.

      1. In my opinion Akagi is reserved to be a regular ship in a second CV line. WG mentioned long time ago they plan to add hybrid ships like Tone, Ise as well as carriers refitted from BBs. Shinano tier 10 hype.

        1. WG should have split two CV line, one with BB refitted as CV with Shinano as t10, and the other one is the current lineup.

          It’s a waste of having Kaga as a prem

      2. Kaga have RJ as her friend for now…And it’s so satisfying to see Kaga a tier below the Shoukaku class.

    1. please don’t, kancolle is a “light”/”soft” version of strike witches
      it is a cheap poducted aimed to take how much they can from “simple-minded”/dumb dudes, whatever can we say about a game, later animated into a cartoon, on which a “ship” displacement is shown by how large their breasts are, that’s such an “interesting” plot
      at least AHA and GUP had a plot

      1. You can criticize the anime however you want, cause it was seriously shit, but saying the game itself is trying to farm money from dumb people is just outright incorrect, the F2P economy is quite pleasant and you can get away with not paying at all, in fact, Japan is filled with these kind of games, and Kancolle was the successful game among the bunch, otherwise why would a shitty game get an anime and movie adoptaion

        1. when I mentioned it was “aimed to take how much they can from “simple-minded”/dumb dudes” I obviously meant the anime because I know a lot of good animes that would even interest the most sceptical westerners if given a chance, yet people have a misconception about anime due to cheap, low quality and with no standards examples like strike witches
          I do however understand why WG is trying this new collab, in kancolle there is a larger number of characters that are also represented in WoWs

          still, displacement being represented by breast size does not go well as a example of what kind of plot the game might have

      2. Let me see, I am neither simple minded nor a dude. I found the characters entertaining and cute, as well as their relationships with each other. The “plot” which it supposedly didn’t have I found engaging as well as intense at times, and I lost sleep over the second to last episode because I was so worried. If you really think its all pervy stuff then you have not actually watched the anime and have been spending too much time looking at fanart, which frankly is rather disgusting.

          1. Indeed, other than a very few bits the Kancolle anime is really rather mild when it comes to that kind of thing, and I did really love the characters, also it was very gay so extra super bonus points~

          2. please don’t put Naruto and similar level works (Bleach, One Piece, Detective Connan, etc…) in the same “boat” as kancolle, sure there are some weird fanart but it is not exclusive to anime, the internet is full with smosh fanart because it happens that fans try to despict what they wish to happen despite realizing it is not headed in that direction
            still you cannot compare Naruto which is the result of the hard work of a artist, like any Marvel/DC comics, with something like kancolle or strike witches brought to be as a comercial product since day 1

      3. M8, the kancolle anime is not really the centrepiece of the franchise. When the fans on about the memes, it’s always refer to the original web game.

        And yes, the kancolle anime is pos, I despised its existence.

      4. And displacement and breast size doesn’t correlate in Kancolle; there’s quite a few of the exceptions like Ryujo, Hamakaze, Ushio, Zuihou…..

          1. The game itself is not good due to having more bullshit RNG than WoT does, but the seasonal events plus shipfus are the elements that make it attractive.

            IMO the standardisation of art style in Kancollle anime is awful , but that is just me…

  1. 90 planes… low tier planes i presume? How much squadrons it will be? We gonna fight in shade…

    1. Probs, the number is measured from the amount of early WW2 IJN carrier borne aircrafts Kaga has carried.

  2. Secondary build with 200mm guns on a CV sounds great xD But honestly I thought she would be on the second line of conversions with Akagi and Shinano. Also if they add Akagi I would like to have a chance to get her from Amagi like Tiger P-Ferdinand. Maybe if they add a special consumable for her because the speed is so low (heal on a CV? Lol)

    1. Akagi wasn’t all that slow, 31.5 knots for a fleet carrier is still acceptable.
      Kaga on the other hand, good luck with the 28 knots

      1. Yamaguchi complained a lot on Kaga slowing down the combined fleet of the carrier task forces 🙂

    2. Amagi and Akagi were planned as battlecruisers as successors of the Kongou class. Tosa and Kaga were planned as battleships as successors of the Nagato class. That’s why Kaga is much slower

  3. Don’t forget Graf Zeppelin, and it would be another rival to either Kaga or Saipan.

    1. No, Graf Zeppelin has low aircraft capacity, not worthy to compare with the other two

  4. Well nice to know the Kaga got leaked but watch the Akagi be at Tier 8. Since the Kaga has 90 planes they are most likely going to be Lower tier planes so we can probably expect Tier 5 Zeros maybe if I’m correct.

    1. Do you wish those low-tier flies swarming to Saipan’s high-tier planes?

  5. “It was just a perfect dive because the Kaga was heading into the wind so I was coming downwind onto a carrier that was on a steady course. My dive got really steep. I put my bombsight on that red rising sun on the bow of the carrier.” – Lieutenant Wilmer Earl Gallaher, VS-6

  6. Hopefully this means that a Yorktown carrier may be just around the corner.

    1. I guess what will be the tier 8 premium CV for USA. Here is a hint: E a very big E and a grey ghost with it

  7. If Kaga could equip Defensive AA Fire consumables, her battle performance would become better when confronting T9 planes launched from Saipan.
    BTW, Defensive AA Fire on mid-tier CV would be another unique feature on Kaga (maybe using the same AA consumable as Shokaku’s), while this consumable is currently available to aircraft carriers from T8.

  8. Kaga came from Kaga’s hull as Tosa’s sister.
    Akagi came from Akagi’s hull as Amagi’s sister. Considering Amagi herself was damaged beyond repair.

  9. Was planning on saving up for Roma, but this changes everything. I mean okay, carriers have a bad economy and all that, but come this is one of the most iconic KanColle shipgirls here, she’s a must-buy. 😀

    Still, I wonder how she’ll compare to Saipan.

  10. kaga is kaga class battleship, not tosa class; Kaga class includes 2 ships, kaga&tosa.

      1. Coming from 2019, but I have to correct you on that. Hiraga’s documents on the ship class (Kaga was the first to be cleared for construction; also seen in JP Wikipedia). The “Tosa-class” comes from the USN’s documents (considering the large amounts of misreports on their behalf back then, they don’t come off as accurate).Basically, your information is based on secondhand information at the time.
