I am grinding my way through the Implacable and finally RN DB are doing something good with 8 bombs per drop instead of the 6 from previous tier, so my upgrade path started with rockets, bombs and now I can´t decide if planes or hull shall be next and I shall tell you why. It feels more like an side-grade rather than an direct upgrade even if we get better planes (+8 kts and +96 hp) and the torpedoes are going from Mark VII to Mark XV keep the same damage, amount per attack run, speed, flooding chance but WORSE arming distance (+36 m) and restoration time (+10 sec). What went wrong here?! I would love to go from 8 planes (4 x 2 drops) to Lexingtons 9 planes (3 x 3 drops) and feel the difference, but can anyone tell me if you can notice this upgrade while playing or shall I just go for the hull and better AA?

Because noone responded here and I don't feel like making a new thread for the exact same thing, what is the point of Spearfish TB?

 

I'm currently still sticking with the Barracuda, given it's 6 kts and 90 hp (so now even less difference than back when the original post happened) but with a longer restoration time and arming time. Sounds just not worth it. Barracuda works just fine and while speed is nice, 6 kts are imo a bit little, especially given that slower planes with shorter arming time also have a slight edge for point-blank drops.
