Bogue only has one torpedo Bomber squad.

 

Zuiho (Japanese tier V CV) however has two torpedo bomber squadrons.

 

SO: It's bound to different CVs.

 

IJN CVs have multiple torpedo bomber squadrons, USN CVs only one (apart from Midway and the two premium CVs Saipan and Enterprise)

Interpreting "launch 2 torpedo bombers at the same time" as "having 2 TPB squadrons", Bogue doesn't. USN CAWs (carrier air wings, i.e. flight control mods in the game) are limited in non-premium ships to one TPB squadron with the exception of Midway. IJN CVs, OTOH, have 2 of them in Hosho and can have 2 (or more) of them, depending on the chosen CAW, from Zuiho onwards. If interpreting it as "making both squadrons take off at the same time", no carrier can do that: squadrons take off sequentially, although some can land back at the same time.

 

You either ended up in a battle with 2 CVs per side and wrongly thought that both TPB squadrons came from the same ship, or you got used to facing Bogues and misidentified a Zuiho with 121 (i.e., 1 fighter, 2 TPBs, 1 SDB) CAW.

 

Salute.

If it's a Bogue - it's a 2 CV match and each of those TB squads is "owned" by a different player, as Bogue has only the 1-1-1 setup

At tier 5 the other CV - Zuiho - can (and usually will) have 2 TB squads at the same time. Zuiho can run 1-1-2 or 1-2-1 flight setup
Those numbers are "Fighters - TBs - DBs"

 

Difference, of course, is that while US CVs have 6 (7) planes in a squad, IJN CVs have just 4 (5) planes per squad

 

You can look at CVs possible flight setups in-game through techtree and in wiki:

http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Zuiho

http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Bogue

 

Also if you plan to play CVs more - I recommend you go watch YouTube and / or Twitch of Farazelleth, there's a lot you can learn from him :cap_like:

 


 

Since you're a new player - other unasked for advice:

  • RN cruisers are very newbie-unfriendly, with probably the highest non-CV skill floor in the game. Tbh it might be even higher than CVs skill floor due to their autodrops
  • RN battleships, while being perfectly fine for a newcomer, can teach you a lot of bad habits that would give you lots of problems later - playing one of the other BB lines before them may be very helpful (I'd recommend IJN or KM (German))
  • Since you have reached tier 6 CVs (Independence) it's quite important to use Alt attacks (manual attacks). You perform those (as name might suggest) by holding your Alt key - this would be explained & shown in "Faras carrier guides"

As stated above - those are Japanese carriers. Hosho, Zuiho, Ryujo and so on. But they have smaller squadrons than on your US CVs

I guess OP´s native language isn't English, which is ok, neither is mine. But I can´t understand the question.

He has played Langley, Bogue and Indep, all of which have flight setups with just 1 TB squad. He has seen CVs (ijn) having 2 TB squads in the air at the same time, and the question "how" makes a lot of sense coming from someone new
