Hello there!
Just a simple question and a poll.

Do you believe that upgrading the torpedo bombers on Implacable is actually worth it?
The upgraded bombers get:

Spoiler

BONUS:
+60 HP (2150, instead of 2060)
+6 kts of cruise speed (133 instead of 127)

MALUS:
+12 seconds restoration time (98 instead of 86)
+43 meters torpedo arming distance (while the torpedo characteristics are identical, apart from this change).


Im conteplating the usefulness of actually upgrading them. The recharge increase is quite significant, and what's more, the torpedos themselves are actually nerfed with the upgraded planes.

Tell me what you think please.

I posted the same question back when i grinded my Implacable using the stock torpedoes.

 

Basically it is a slight trade-off  - in my opinion a down-grade - and you might aswell save the XP and not bother upgrading.

 

The cruise speed isn't the interesting number since you never spend any time going at anything less than full boost or about 5 knots less (hit boost button every 1 s instead of holding it down and you have infinite boost - works on all CVs)

Thanks for the insight.
The difference in boosted speed is still 6 kts. It literally does not matter which one of these you use in the comparison.

Hasn’t this “feature” been patched some time ago?

Yes, they have. And I use them exactly for that.

What was fixed was mashing boost key. Repeated +-1s tapping with 1-2s break is "working as intended". Even more so with Brit planes, as they deacelerate slower than US/IJN ones.

I can't remembee what the change they did to boost was, but it wasn't this.

 

It still works just fine for me on TB and DB (not RF obviously). Timed it in training room a couple days ago.

Just to clarify 1 sec on then 1 sec off boost is infinite?

I didnt write it down, just times flying from my stationary Haku to bomb the same target without and with boost (was actually testing if you can citpen raised citadel Conqueor and getting lots of triple cits). Nothing fancy. Using above teqnique was very similar to full boost but the map wasn't big enough to test the effect on distances where boost would run out. Feel free to test it though- it's very relevant for RN CV.

This is why I love this forum. I learn new things. Sometimes very useful new things!

I had a feeling the RN boost had something different about it.

Not quite infinite, but you can traverse map at next to max speed and still have good chunk of boost for attack run.

Try it yourself in Training Room.
