How do you change the angle of the torp bomber run. when i click..or use the alt to manual drop. i know you're suppose to be able to move it around the big circle to change the angle but how you do that..i click the target..get the circle but cannot rotate it..use mouse? arrow keys? What key is it under in the control settings?

thanks

There's a small tag (where the line of flight meets the aiming circle.

Click and drag it around the the angle you want.

Ah ok. I thought you just rotated a key or something. Thanks.

If you hold Shift while pressing "F", then the carrier becomes the last waypoint. This way, you can have the planes fly around dangerous AA and then land.

Great guide! I just got my first carrier (Langley) and took it out only to realize that operating the carrier was nothing like the ships. I don't think I added much (anything) to that battle. I tried to find instructions or even the Naval videos, but I have no idea where they are. So, thanks again for this guide!

Thanks for the guide, bought my first cv, a hosho, will try it now on bots. I don't want to inflict a useless cv on a hapless team. BTW, it is a good idea to send planes to a few waypoints on the way back to their cv bec otherwise they give the position of the cv away

I'm having trouble with my fighters.They don't seem very effective compared to the enemy CV's fighters,even when we are identical.

Which nation are you playing as and which nation are you having trouble against? Do you have module upgrades for your planes or no?

Are your planes faster than his? If so then he prob has the skill that gives him more damage against faster planes. Are you engaging his planes over AA fire?

Autopilot does set speed to half, however, you can just press the up arrow twice and it doesn't screw it up...

Then chances are RNG is just not on your side. Don't ever engage enemy planes over enemy AA fire, unless it is to open a path for your bombers.

Sorry if this is a noob question.  I am using Japanese carriers and have used the manual torpedo drop, but I'm not getting the narrow rectangle.  I am still getting a spread out torpedo launch on tier 4 and 5 ships.  I can set the spread closer to the ships, but not in the thin rectangle I am seeing in the YouTube videos.  Am I doing something wrong or has there been a carrier nerf?  New to this forum and game, so bear with me please.

Japanese carrier torpedo planes drop have a wider spread while USN is more narrow. Or your attacking cruisers/USN destroyers with the AA burst ability which greatly widens the spread of a torpedo drop. Same happens if attacked by fighters.

Thanks for the clarification.  I have noticed the increase spread with fighters attacking.  And I don't think the ships that I am attacking are high enough tier to have the AA burst yet, so it must be the difference in nation technology.  Bummer.
