    1. they already did, 3,6km torpedo range is well inside the range of most AA guns, prepare or a lot of dispersed torps and lots of TB losses even from BBs with ONLY decent AA coverage, afterall it’s only 5 TB per squadron


        1. exactly, and if the max range is only 3.6km it means that droping it inside that range is droping inside the mid range AA coverage (37mm and above)
          with tier 8 aircraft you can assume the ship will be high tier, with that said the oposition will be filled with 37mm and 40mm guns, even BBs will have devastating effects on a 5 aircraft squadron
          the only possible way to minimize the damage is specific mechanics, it all goes to the formation attack but even that should not be enough completely negate the disadvantage of the low torp range


      1. You talking as if any CV in the game can drop torpedoes outside of AA range with any sort of reliability.

        Lower arming time and higher damage makes them already superior.

      1. Well, yes. I read that, but it doesn’t say what the new spread is. Hence why I said I’m interested in what they’re going to do with it.


  1. Yay, Graf Zeppelin! <3 It's pretty damn worrying that it gets 15 torpedo bombers and 72 aircraft total for tier 8? It'd have been nice to see some Ju87 dive bombers, but if they're anything like Kaga's DBs they'd be a waste of hanger capacity. It's unpredictable how OP or UP she'd be as is seeing as we don't know what the torpedo drop pattern is (and torpedoes are rather slow at 33 knots), but so far she looks alright, imo similar to a saipan 2/2/0 at tier 8.

  2. I wonder how the hell they will balance it, without screwing it up.

    This thing looks even nastier than a Kaga, which already known as nasty, but equipped with weak planes.
    And here, we have 3X5 Tier 8 TB. Even with sluggish torps, cross-drops will be a hell to survive to. Sounds okay. (jk).


  3. Was hyped for the Enterprise and Kaga, cause I fucking love the battle of Midway. Sadly, I have to say screw them, gimme the Zeppelin.


  4. Ugh. This ship belongs in T7, or even T6. Not only did they massively overinflate its hanger capacity (it’s like what, 42 IRL?), having Bf 109T as a T8 fighter is sheer stupidity because it was basically scrapped by 1942 due to its outdated design–and the USN and IJN T8 fighters weren’t even in full service yet.


    1. WG decided to use Graf Zeppelin’s total aircraft capacity including deckparks. Taihou using the aircraft that she has in-game could only carry 53 planes, but in-game she gets 83, which is about how many she could carry with older, smaller aircraft.


  5. I saw information. I saw his stats proposition and i saw:

    Surface Detectability: 16.2 km

    After this i said – NO THANKS. Better to stay with japanese carriers if someone plays carriers.
