It's not really a leak when WG posts it on their Facebook page.

TAP calls everything they post a leak whether it is or not. One of the many reasons you can't take TAP seriously. WG Japan released the kaga details.

Look at that flight deck.  Looks like 8-10-10; guessing 2-2-2 loadout as 4X2-5X2-4X2 and AS skill. Could be interesting to have larger IJN TBs thinking USN style drop patterns on the TBs too.  Especially since the Saipan follows the IJN style small squadrons and drops, having the Kaga use a USN style larger squadrons and drops makes sense.

 

Edit: Actually it looks like 4x2-5x2-5x2 with no AS skill but could be a 3x2-5x2-4x2 with AS skill, still looks interesting

A 90 plane ship at T7 this is going to go over well, if this is true hopes for a Yorktown at T8 with her full complement are a little higher

Something I found on the SEA server website

Me like, but where is her more elegant step-sister Akagi?

Well that's what happens when you convert a 1920 design battleship into a carrier and then remodel it in 1935.

 

10x 200mm guns, 5 on each side, 152mm - 279mm belt armor (historical numbers)

That would be absolute [edited]if Kaga get 5x2 TB squads.

 

USN CVs got nerfed into oblilvion for having 6x2 TB squads.

 

IJN CVs already can sport 8 TB planes in Strike Configuration below Tier IX.  At Tier IX+ they can fly with up to TWELVE TB aircraft.

 

In contrast, USN CVs are limited no matter what to 1 TB squad of 6 planes max, and left to be completely reliant on the RNG-fest of DBs.

 

I'm wagering Kaga will be Tier VII or VIII and with TEN TB planes vs the 6 max of any USN CV, that's just straight up [edited].  Meanwhile Ranger diddles along at 1/1/1, 2/0/2, or 0/1/3.  If Ranger wasn't getting a$$f**ed before, she's going to be even more now.  They really should just remove USN CVs.

I kinda wish they had 3 deck Kaga, just to look at least.  I just hope they don't "censor" this CV like they did the Hiryu

Also based off the second screenshot I'm seeing 5 squads of 6.  The deck layout is similar to the US deck layout with the planes being in rows of 3.  This would also make sense as that gives you 2 full restocks of each squadron.

I saw the second pic but was thinking that was the AS load out and I might be miscounting but is that not 10-11-11 pane rows.  I was kind of picturing a some monster reverse Saipan with 10X2  - 5X2 - 0 with AS skill.  But even with T6 planes this is getting me excited.

Until they release the CV-6 with her 1943 refit. 3-1-3 (3X4 - 1X6 - 3X4).  First flight + 2 full refills each = 90 planes total; AA rating NOPE and a heal using Lexington's top planes (1k bombs) all at Tier 8.
