Only certain CVs can drop more than 2 torps. IJN I believe Kaga. Saipan, Midway and Lexi and prob Ark Royal.

Lexington - 3

midway - 6

kaga - 4

saipain - 4(?)

hakuryu - 2

 

not sure about the rest, hosho can only drop 2 at a time though (which is still OP)

None of them (see previous replies); to learn more about captains, and their skills, read this: https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Commander

 

You may also find this of use: http://shipcomrade.com/captcalc

Varies a bit with carrier; besides asking the good CV players (not me), Ship Comrade is your friend - this is the Graf Zep build with the most votes, for instance: http://shipcomrade.com/captcalc/0001010000000100000100001001100019?sid=3762272048

 

There are equivalent entries for most other ships.

 

For the same ship, this will take you to the Graf Zep page on the wiki: https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Graf_Zeppelin

 

Most ships get a similar entry on the wiki and all you have to do is click on the 'show captain skills' thing and you get the wiki's opinion of what is best for whichever ship you're looking at.

 

Additional: just for emphasis - the above are examples; Graf Zep is a bit weird when it comes to captain skills. Also, captain skills have changed a couple of times over the years; you may not see the most current arrangement with all the Ship Comrade entries, and other older references you may find online.

Ark Royal drops 3, but dammit that 3rd one is harder to get hits with than the 4 that get dropped by Kaga.

I think the Brits borrowed seamines from the Yanks. Have even seen DDs outrun the damn fishes.

3 torps per drop: Lexington, Enterprise, Ark Royal, Audacious

4 torps per drop: Kaga, Saipan

6 torps per drop: Midway

 

In development: 8 torps per drop: FDR

 

That's basically all the CVs with more than 3 torpedos.

Hello, since it is about "how to play"

I moved the topic into more appropriate section.

8?!?!? Are they armed with feather dusters to compensate? Lol

No, they will do over 40k alpha combined. The drawback is that the planes are Sky Pirates with 2 planes carrying 4 each, the planes having a ton of hp, but restoring very slowly and being slow as all hell (10 knots faster than a Swordfish) and needing 25s of cooldown inbetween attack runs. A single squad will however be enough to wipe out pretty much any ship except a CV (because fighter planes will decimate the squad).
