There is no such thing as strike for IJN CV. Just balanced and AS. You cannot substitute fighters for additional bombers.

It really depends on what CV is on the other side, but i would feel completely useless if i did not have at least 1 squadron of strike aircraft.

Balanced USN mid-tier, Strike upper-tiers.

 

Stike all the way with IJN, though I'm only up to T8.

Beat me to it.  Also USN only has three viable balanced loadouts,  Langley,  Indy,  and Midway.  Every other 'balanced' loadout sacrifices current airborne numbers and that's never good.  Course it may still be better then the all or none options that sacrifice either all of your ability to affect the air battle or most of your ability to affect the sea battle.

Honestly?  They need to bump up stock loadouts to balanced and rebalance IJN strike to be more strikey.  Drop a fighter for a dive bomber.

Also,  I do not like bacon.

Exactly. IJN Strike needs to be Strike, not mini-AS. Frankly, I think that the IJN should only have one "balanced" configuration, and the USN should be the only ones allowed to specialize.

 

Also, what is the deal with USN 2 VT Strike? I understand they were very powerful at the time they existed, but, with more and more AA and fighters at high tiers that has developed recently as opposed to at the time that the USN had 2 VT strike configurations, I'm not sure I see the problem anymore. Especially since a German Battleship can be tuned to have a comprable AA DPS to a US Cruiser.

 

And, finally... :(

Although British Back Bacon is better, in terms of pork. And, even better, Jagerschitzel.
