not to mention .... Enterprise  name was had by 8 different ships over the life of the  US navy . The first was a captured frigget  during the revolution years . giving the designation of " the 8th wonder of the world " . She was the 1st to experiment and tasked to study " Night Flying " of which became normal practice for all . She escorted Hornet for the Dolittle Raid . Participated in more battles then any other ship in the navy during WWII .

I too wondered why Enterprise is not in the game .

The USS Enterprise was a Yorktown class aircraft carrier by the end of the war she was the only Yorktown class left as the Yorktown and Horrent both sunk in 1942. The Enterprise did get a refit With more AA and other features. (If you want to learn more go and watch "Battle 360, USS Enterprise" ep.6 The Enterprise was the most decorated ship of the war. She was so famous that she was almost turned into a museum but they did not get enough money and she was scraped in the 50s. (Which I was so mad at when I herd that I want on about it for days and still have not come to gripes with it.) But she would make a good Premium ship at tier 7 or 8 I say in the $25-$35 range. And It would be nice to have more than 1 brace of carrier line for the US navy. What do you think, tell me in the polls and War Gaming please tell me if you plan to do this in the comments. :)   

 

Don't feel sad about the ultimate fate of the Enterprise. Her crew was trained and equipped to defend the nation. The Enterprise was built and fitted to defend the nation. Both ship and crew served with great courage. When it was all over both ship and crew returned to civilian life. The story of the Grey Ghost mirrored her crew's story.

I am a victim of WarGaming's Humble-Bumble Scam.

Thanks for doing the right thing, Wargaming

I'm a little salty about what eventually became of Saratoga, that ship fought through the entire Pacific War as well, only to be sunk as nuclear target fodder. She deserved more than that.:(

I'd LOVE to see the Enterprise in the game.  Look at my avatar for cripes sake lol. I also know that there's a limit to how much I'll pay for any premium ship in any game.  Tirpitz for example is not likely to populate my layout anytime soon at $70 US dollars.  I sincerely doubt that I'd pay more than $50 for a ship of any kind.  Hell that's close to the price of 6 months of premium time.

They are putting the Warspite back in? I know they removed it from store, and I started the game after those dates...

 

I don't know if they are putting it back in or not but it was in and i imagine that wargaming will do a normal move and put it back in on a later date.

Dont worry The Enterprise will be a Premium ship.  Its why the Yorktown class was "skipped" in the US carrier line.

If I'm not mistakin, there was no midway carrier, that was the name of a battle where their was the USS Yorktown, USS Enterprise, and  USS hornet, why do you have a carrier named Midway? Just curious

Yes, there was the USS Midway.

But you are mistaken... a mistake that could have been avoided with a quick search of Wikipedia, among other places.
