Hi,

what are the strange different aicraft squadron icons of Graf Zeppelin supposed to depict?

This is the symbol for deep water torpedo bombers. Like shipborne DWTs, they cannot hit DDs.

iirc you also cant hit CA/CLs 

No, they can hit cruisers. They are PA-style DWT, not Asashio-style.

 

It is however rare for them to be used, as I never saw anyone use them competently. The GZ basically thus has two ways of "viable" loadout, which are AP bombs and normal torps, allowing to cross-torp DDs and left click delete everything else, or DWT bombers and HE bombs to stack floods and fires. Requires to hit DDs with the bombs though. Dunno why you'd use this over the first option though, given how powerful GZ AP bombs are.

 

And sometimes you see the special folks using AP bombers and DWT bombers... then you hope it's the enemy CV, not yours.
