Is there a best for the aircraft carrier lines?

What are the str and weaknesses of the 3 carrier nations? Pretend I'm 7.

What is the best tier VI carrier and why?

 Before the rework carriers had their differences in squad sizes and the aproach they had to take because of it, now the copy/pasta gameplay makes pretty much no sence in saying what is best, but the HE bomb amunition of RN and US make them better compared to IJN AP due to beying able to put more dot damage and ability to attack all targets.

Do you know if IJN have something to make up for it, or is it in theory just supposed to be a difference in how the bombs works?

IJN is the best one. Currently AP bombs are superior in performance to HE ones and other characteristics are either excellent or decent enough.

They require somewhat more skill to play tho.

USN=IJN>>>UK

 

USN are versatile hammer - you can spank pretty much every ship type with every kind of payload at your disposal. Decent rockets, though tier 8 and 10 have horrendous disperion on HVAR (multiple small rockets), though can damage plenty of targets with 32mm HE pen. Alternative are TiTs - Tiny Tims, massive rockets with fcukhueg penetration at 68mm and damage close to BB projectile, but very few in numbers, making them prone to RNG trolling. Torps are solid, short arming distance, decent damage. Dive bombers can smack pretty much everything you come across, but accuracy nerfs made them... unreliable against DDs and maneuvering targets. Planes themselves are middle ground - okay speed, decent health. Simply "no nonsense"

 

IJN are precise scalpel - you need to know what targets you can brutalize with what, but once you get hang of that damage potential is I'd say higher than USN. Early rockets are lacking both in damage and numbers, Shokaku ones are much more useable simply because you throw more of them per run. Hakuryu IMO gets the best rockets of all tier 10, due to mix of damage, accuracy and workable 30mm HE pen, so only BBs are out of reach. Torps are top tier across the board in terms of speed and damage, AP bombs are mainly anti cruiser weapon - on quite a number of battleships bombs simply detonate before reaching citadel. Bomb drop trajectory also matters, so definitely skill sensitive. Planes are somewhat fragile, but fast and IJN TB have improved concealment, with maxed out camo you can outspot 152mm armed AA cruisers like Minotaur.

 

UK are turds - small squadrons with long replacement times made of slow but durable planes. While you throw more rockets per plane than usual, smaller attack wing counteracts that and when you get "normal" attack wing size at tier 10, rockets have too small HE pen of 27mm to reliably damage tier 10 cruisers with dispersion leaving you at RNGesus mercy when trying to spank destroyers. Lower tier ships are going to be decimated though. Torps are comparable to USN, but again, until tier 10 you drop less of them. "Dive", or rather "horizontal" bombers are balanced around "what you can hit, you can't penetrate. What you can penetrate, you can't hit". Any ship with reinforced deck is going to shrug off these bomblets, you would be lucky to land more than 4 hits on DD or even cruiser sized target.

 

I'd stick to Ryujo and maybe start working towards Ranger and simply have fun as well getting practice with them in Operations.
