Hee guys,

 

I am new to the currently going on rework of carriers. Please help a newbie out.

 

  • Why do aircraft carriers have spotter planes called fighters?
  • Why do ships have passenger planes called fighters?

 

As far as the rework of carriers is going on I am a really big fan. Perhaps a good idea to rename the labels?

Launching fighters when the enemy squad is already within 4km of you is a waste of time.

 

Launch the fighters when the enemy appears heading in your direction so that the fighter is actively circling you before they arrive, the CV will probably decide not to attack you altogether.

@Astolfo_Is_My_Waifu I launched them to prevent a second strike. Yet the fighters did nothing and already returned to my ship way too early.

Your fighters got triggered and started following the first attaking wing. 
But they were too late, they finished their attack and when they reach immunity altitude, your fighters came back. 

A know feature for CV players, If you time your attack carefully, you can trigger fighters with your attacking wing, 

then your wing goes away, fighters go away.

Launching fighters from your BB or Cruiser is a helpful visual aid for the opposing CV player, so he can focus you more in order to gain a Compliment from you.
