  • You need to play a total of 50 battles to post in this section.

Question

Can we get a British premium CV now we have Graf Zep, HMS Ark Royal would be amazing or a reskinned Bogue/Ruler escort carrier.

USS Robin? :cap_haloween:

 

In any case we do not generally reveal new ship bfore it is time to do so, so... no comment, follow the forums and facebook page and wait for when such a thing appears :)

I dont see a problem with lend lease ships (with british aircraft) and aircraft (on a British carrier) as a Premium ship. mainly due to the fact that elements are already in game so WG Devs dont have quite as much work to do to get a new ship out quickly.

 

on the other hand as stated before the Fleet Air Arm had more than enough Aircraft designs throughout the war to fill tier IV-X carriers

 

Errrrrrrrr Albacore dive bomber?  Her wings would tear off :P

 

TBH Brits would have a potential or "carrier fighters" and "carrier fighter-bombers" rather than a "torpedo / dive bomber" split, but that would require new mechanics etc. - we are not there yet. Give it some more time :)

a reskined bogue as a Ruler class would be the easiest option, the ship is in game and so are the aircraft that flew off it are in game as seaplanes for the cripple cruiser line (Seahurricanes and Swordfish) those in theory shouldnt require that much work to turn into deck planes.

 

USS Robin/HMS Victorious is a great idea as a Premium vessel because while the RN FAA did use alot of US Lend-Lease aircraft mid to late war there are more than enough British designed aircraft to equip on the tech tree carriers. Having American fighters in the tech tree could be easily mistaken for lazyness on wargamings part.

@Tuccy in all seriousness, destroyers, cruisers and battleships all have three, four, five lines to choose from and yet carriers still only have two.  the premium CV's are good but we need another CV line as a priority to spice up the competition and give diversity to the class.  we don't need more battleships or destroyers

A reskinned Bogue would suck the hardest too. Who on earth would pay money to play a CV without Alt Dropping...

I suppose the tier V DB would have to be a swordfish as well (which could dive bomb... that is if it comes with DBs at all,) and the Albacore moved up to become the Tier 6 Torpedo bomber but hey at least someone read it! :Smile_teethhappy:

 

you strike a interesting concept with fighter bombers but how could it be theoretically handled in game?

Fighters that can dog fight, dive bomb or launch torpedoes dealing less damage than dedicated interceptors or bombers?

Fighters with *gasp* :Smile_ohmy: Rockets?

 

at the same time,


certain iconic Fleet Air Arm (namely the Sea Hurricane and Seafire) had a incredibly limited role due to their lack of range and very limited weapons payload. it would be difficult to balance having a dedicated fighter wing AND bomber squadrons capable of fighting back against interdiction.
