hello ladies and gentelmen, 
I'm gonna make a warning in general... 

Please do not turn this thread into a general CV-AntiCV discussion. 

 

Keeping the topic about "Skippers" will save this thread from getting closed down. 

Have a nice day

Actually this looks somehow fun. Idk how strong or op this could be. Let's wait with the rant until we know. Also didn't the British made them to destroy German dams? Quite odd to give them to the Germans.

The lulzy thing is, I first thought "Well, why not make an AP version? DBs are a better delivery method for HE bomb delivery and AP at least pens the belt." Then I realised DBs are also the better delivery method for AP bombs. Like, why try pen the belt, where they might even angle or shatter on T10 BB belt, if you can just pen the deck? GK would just laugh at these bombs, compared to MvR bombing strikes.

 

It's just a laughably stupid way of attacking a target that isn't ignoring you completely.

I mean what is the difference between these and toro bombers apart from being harder to use?  
 

they look like a hybrid between dive bombers, torpedo bombers and rocket planes...

Could WarGaming possibly be looking for a replacement for the universally hated rocket planes (hated by surface ships at least)?

 

From the dev blog:

"Please note that if this concept is successfully tested, detailed information on its application will be announced later"

 

Makes me wonder if they have bigger plans for it than simply shoving it on a Premium CV as a gimmick and calling it a day and I doubt were getting Soviet CV's this quickly after the German CV line announcement so possibly a rework of the older CV trees plane lineup is coming.

 

Would be interesting if the USN and IJN got these rather than rocket planes. Might bring them down towards the British and German CV lines in power level.

No. If skip bombs were a valid replacement for rockets, then dive bombers would already be one too. Rockets are supposed to be low skill floor attack planes that are easier to hit, but less damaging overall (making it good vs DDs and cruisers, not so much against BBs, compared to other plane types). Skip bombs do not fill that role.
