T10: Hakuryu RFs for overall strike effectiveness, Midway TiTs if you're lucky, Audacious RFs in terms of damage per volley

T8: Enterprise RFs, Shokaku RFs come second

T6: Ranger RFs probably

T4: currently Hosho TBs

Ranger rocket fighters might be the most reliable single type of T6 carrier aircraft for DDs, but I'm very much inclined to argue that overall, Ark Royal is a strong competitor. The Skua's worse than the Wildcat in damage output and Wildcat can do 4 passes, Skua only 3. The Swordfish bomber however is a more reliable anti-DD weapon imo than the Vindicator DB (also if you need to blind bomb a DD) and all three planes of Ark Royal can start and execute attack runs within the limited detection range of DDs. Wildcat and Devastator are more limited there, while the Skua and Swordfish can just be slowed with S and potentially start a first run. The power of slow aircraft.
