Here i will show you how midway do with AP bombs against his opponents at t9 and t10. I'm not familiar with them since i never had an option to play Enterprise. Since no one bother to make any list how this works against each ship i compile this list. I will show if this is a valid option to choose if you play mostly t10. 

Tl;dr

t10 BB can get about 15-20k for one tb squad. The worst affected by that change are t10 cruisers, especially De moine. Worth mentioning is Fletcher, Udaloi and Shimakaze. They can get hit for ~8k. On the flip side t9 excluding Neptune are completely immune to AP bombs (bring HE if you grind Essex).

DD of t10 i 9 are nothing special and will be in one group. Honorable mention are Udaloi, Fletcher and Shimakaze. All tree of them take the most damage and can be oneshotted if you land all bombs.

In my personal opinion AP midway is borderline OP. I can kill DD with cross drops, kill/heavly damage BB with TB if i'm not yolo at the start of the game. AP bombs let me catch cruisers with the pants down and kill them if i aim correctly. One shooting bismarck or Henry was never this much fun. Since T10 mostly see T10 and a few t8 This is really valid option. If you start seeing more t9 cruisers, switch to HE.

Huh, I personally oneshot quite a few Minos in my test. Maybe I just got lucky?

 

Personally I think DDs are a non-issue. If they maneuver it's rather hard to get a good manual drop on them, mitigating damage severely. Besides, a good HE bomb drop will just straight up oneshot any DD.

Against BBs, HE bombs do about the same damage while offering more utility. I have made a comparison here:

AP bombs vs cruisers is just plain [edited] stupid, though.

 

Technically speaking I guess you could use AP DBs on Midway considering you have 2x TBs for anti DD and BB work, giving you a dedicated anti cruiser weapon as well. How often do you actually attack cruisers, though?

Perhaps a viable, more gimmicky choice, but considering that AP DBs will be of more situational use I'd recommend using HE bombs instead as these will be useful more often.

So far it's a nice option. It's nice to catch some CW cruisers. TB still give you plenty of power. When i get bored i will switch to HE but for now? Give me more derpitz in the game. No more farming credits doing nothing.

 

In actual game i find that minotaur is the harders just after hinder target. He don't have def aa but can turn really fast and hard making good attack impossible. CW dm is easy kill, regular AA is still avoid for all cost. Zao and Moskva are reliable target.

Yes, i prefer to destroy ships that influence the game instead going for bb.

It's almost as if T8 AP bombs are useless on T10. Who would have thought?
