hello, captains

 

I have some questions to ask (especially if you are CV main) 

 

 

mainly the title, I have played Shokaku for a bit and some time i come up against Lexington with 0 1 3 deck. 

some of the game i played, my fighter just not capable of catching Lexington planes at all even know i have 171 kts speed while Lexington Bomber has 140. but my fighter can't catch it before that anyway. also sometimes is easily catch it.

 also, T8 ijn don't have aircraft speed upgrade, so i assume Lexington don't have one. so i can't see anything that makes Lexington bomber faster than Shokaku fighter.

yes, i am aware of that but sometime my fighter can't catch it even before drop, also is not every game... that why I think it might be a bug.

Something to do with modules? Altho Lex doesn't have the tier 9 module, so shouldn't be the case.. O_o

a) maybe lag?

 

b) the lexi dropped its bombs right at the start even before you spot it to use it as a scout and hence its faster than you even if you haven seen it drop its bombs.

 

c) depends on when you start seeing the bombers and begin chasing them. Prehaps the distance where you spot them is far enough so that no matter how fast your fighters are, they will always lag behind the bombers, especially if they travel in a straight line only and dont turn, which would cause their speed to drop. Say if your fighters made a turn to chase after the bombers at the start then it would have slowed down abit at the start.

You can either just view them in the port even for ships you do not own (just select whatever ship you want to see in the tech tree and hover over the planes to see their stats).

Or you can use wows-numbers.com and hover over the modules on the respective ship pages.

 

Doesn't show you the speed of empty bombers but they're always a bit faster than same tier fighters.

From there : https://gamemodels3d.com

But you have to pay them 3 USD once to get lifetime unlimited access.

If you don't want to pay, you can determine the max speed of a strike aircraft with this formula :

max speed with bombs/torps = 80% of max speed
