There was a news post on the WoWs web page that gives a short comparison of the Royal Navy before and after WWII, and it definitely puts some emphasis on aircraft carriers. Maybe I'm reading into it too much, but they may be coming sooner than it seems. I guess that CV change has to come first, then lots of ships for us.

It would make sense to release the rework and RN CVs at the same time as they should provide an incentive to play reworked CVs.

So maybe the update following the US cruiser line split. I suppose they have lots of ships to add right now, such as Italian cruisers and those 'Super Akizuki' Japanese DD's. Still, should give me enough time to at lest get familiar with CV gameplay in Co-op, as I am a proper noob in CV's at the moment :Smile_facepalm:.

Yes, they "have to" add so much and it takes so long :cap_old:

RN CV's should come out with the CV rework so they can be properly balanced and implemented. Imo the RN should of been in the game with a full tree like the US/Japanese since day one.

They won't come till after the rework me thinks. Would be smarter to make sure the rework actually works before adding more CV lines.

Yeah, this CV rework could take a few versions to get right. Not too easy so it alienates the current carrier players, but not so hard it is beyond the grasp of normal players. WG will need to be careful not to dumb down the class to much.

 

Also, I'm interested that they added rockets as part of the rework. I'd like to think that somebody on the dev team read our posts and thought that it was a good idea. Plus, this plane-eye view appeals to me becaise we get to see more of the aircraft than a few dots on the PC screen. I guess I just like planes though, sothis miht not be to everyone's taste. Still, I'd like to see planes like the Fulmar and Swordfish from this view, I think they will look cool.

One bet is they will screw them up like every RN ship they have do so far, mind you T10 has to be Habbakuk 

How did they, as you so inelegantly put it, screw up "every" RN ship they have done so far?

 

EDIT: also, you're quite frankly delusional if you think the Habbakuk is ever going to be in game, outside of a pve event.

Most likely the release of the RN CVs will be a part of a larger Carrier Arc, most likely looking like this:

 

1 - Carrier rework.

2 - Limited-time carrier campaign with boxes and a special Arsenal currency.

3 - Release of Royal Navy carriers during the campaign.

Agreed. And as I said, people are deluding themselves if they are actually thinking the Habbakuk is anywhere in there (way too big and immobile)

 

My personal T10 bet is the Audacious class

Maybe they could have that as T 10, but it would need very good aircraft. The Audacious class have much smaller hangars than the Midway class or the Hakuryu. Having said that, pretty much every RN carrier will have a smaller hangar than its IJN or USN equivalent. The planes will need a gimmick of some kind to make them worth it. Maybe enhanced survivability? It is (kinda) historical, as Swordfishes were rugged aircraft, as were Martlets and Sea Hurricanes. Plus the T10 fighters would probably be sea Furies, and they are massive, so will carry a fair few hit points.

 

The other option, and my personal bet for T 10, is the Malta class. A design that would have given the Royal Navy the large carriers that they had needed for quite a while. It was cancelled due to budget constraints, but in WoWs it might work. It has a 4" armoured deck, 16 4.5" DP guns in eight twin mounts and many Bofors guns. Not to mention it will do 33 knots and has a hangar capacity of 80-108 (depends on size of plane carried).

Malta would work as well, for sure. Didn't even see that issue with the Audacious' (relatively) small hangar until now..

I guess Audacious (under the name Eagle) works as a T 9. The smaller hanger may not be such an issue here, and the more modern planes can compensate.

It could, although I'd prefer her to be under the name Ark Royal myself.

Reworked CVs have infinite plane reserves. Hangar size is now completely irrelevant, really.

True, though WG might give the name to the third Ark Royal, constructed in the 1930s. She sank in 1941, not before her aircraft knocked out Bismarck's rudder, and she participated in Norway as well. This Ark had quite an active career, so would be an interesting T 7 premium.

Oh, that changes things somewhat. I guess the type of plane used will be a balancing factor now, which may leave the Royal Navy pretty outmatched (or at least that is what history would say). I guess the Royal Navy carriers will get aircraft they never carried to be balanced, i.e. HMS Courageous operating Avengers or Barracudas at T 6, HMS Implacable getting Sea Furies/Seafire Mk 48's, and then either HMS Malta or a refitted HMS Eagle (angled deck) with Sea Vampires, Sea Hornets and maybe Hawker Sea Hawks. If they got (semi) historical planes then the line would be stuck with slow-moving Swordfishes/Albacores until about T7/8, though the fighters might get better: Starting out with Nimrods, graduating to Fulmars, Sea Hurricanes, Martlets, Seafires and probably ending with Sea Furies.

I am aware, thank you. Although tbh, she deserves to be a premium ship.

Just another example of WoWS  being flushed down the drain via  incessant player whining that present CV play hurts the whiners brains.

I'm hoping for a British CV line too, partly because most British people don't know anything about the British Pacific Fleet where many of the WW2 carriers eventually served. Task Force 57 which was probably the most powerful formation that the RN ever put to sea. And It galls me every time my Lexington gets it's [edited]kicked by the seemingly invincible Graf Zeppelin. Losing to a carrier that was never completed, flying planes that were never used at sea is hard to take.
