Was just thinking, players of the Japanese carriers could be offered the option of Kamikaze, to add a little realism. Of course at the start of the game it would be crazy, but say your carrier was almost dead and little chance of getting the planes back and reloaded, give the option to crash the plane into a target...

funny idea imo.

But, in the sense of balance, then i don't think it'll Work (since fires on a ship was rather deadly during WWII(regarding your need for realism))

Too bad that it's not realistic since kamikazes were from land bases. Besides it started as an act of desperation which is not necessary in this game.

Not sure about last point, some of the games I've been in can get very desperate :p

The devs said there will be no kamikaze in this game.

Planes without a load and low on fuel wouldn't do anything against a ship. Kamikaze planes were only effective because they were fully loaded with all kinds of explosives or fuel tanks.

An empty plane just doesn't have enough force/power to do any significant damage. 

 

 

 

 Kamikaze aircraft were essentially pilot-guided explosive missiles, purpose-built or converted from conventional aircraft. Pilots would attempt to crash their aircraft into enemy ships in what was called a "body attack" (体当たり; 体当り,taiatari) in planes laden with some combination of explosivesbombstorpedoes and full fuel tanks; accuracy was much better than a conventional attack, the payload and explosion larger.

"Kaze" means "wind" in japanese, and thus there is a LOT of destroyers with "kaze" in their names : Shimakaze, Hatsukaze, Maikaze, Urakaze, Tanikaze, Hamakaze, Isokaze, Tokitsukaze, Yukikaze, Amatsukaze, etc ... :D
