I am with you, pali_tz1f0s her planes have so little hp you lose more than do anything. IF you meet tier 10 god have mercy on your plane. you can be lucky to get 1 attack in, after that you have lost them all.. Even in even match those plane are having a bad time. Her trop plane are fast. which is very nice. You can do fast drop torp. BUT the torp damage do little to no damage, you better hope RNG god bless you with flood. The attack plane is Meh. I see no other use than to set fire on bb and scare DD out of their holes and mess with crusier.
The AP plane I think is one of the best, with that said. They do no damage. BUT you are in favor of RNG god to get Cit on BB which is very nice. BUT that is about it.. as op said she need a buff. either Plane HP or Damage buff. BUT nothing else.
