shinanao while already modeled is a disaster to balance. enterprise is historically significant and holds some significance to me so i would want that first, though not until cv's are fixed. and i dont think i have ever heard of graf zepplin so i cant really comment on that.

Enterprise was actually completed and in service from the beginning of the war and into the end, saw most of the Pacific's naval campaigns and countless combat operations, her aircraft have been part of the demise of a huge amount of IJN warships.  The other two didn't even operate as a full-fledged carrier.

Enterprise although Graf Zepplin was confirmed in an interview.

The Grey Ghost, a badly designed support carrier carrying reserve aircraft, fuel and ordnance in support of real fleet carriers, or a paper ship. It's a tough choice.

Which one is the paper ship? all 3 were launched

 

Personally i'd take Shinano or Graf Zepp over the Enterprise, yes she had the most distinguished battle record out of the 3 but we already have her in the Lexington, we don't need another ship based on a ship we already have access to, should try for something unique

 

Tiering wise though: Shinano would be 8 or 9, Enterprise 7 or 8 and Graf Zeppelin would be 5 or 6

Graf Zeppelin was never completed. She was a nonoperational hull that spent the war being towed from one harbor to the next before being scuttled.

 

Shinano only had a 50-60 plane hangar. She would be completely outclassed in tier 8-9.

 

Yorktown and Lexington are not the same ship. Lexington was larger and more heavily armored weighing nearly twice as much. Yorktown carried significantly more aircraft and benefited from advances in carrier design learned from Lexington and Ranger.

While Graf Zeppelin might have a chance, I don't think I would want her. There's this lingering feeling that her hangar cap would be too few for high tiers (although yea, we have Saipan) or might be too strong for mid/low tiers.

 

Shinano is a good candidate for a tier IX or X but given we're yet to see a tier IX or X premium being sold in the shop (Missouri doesn't count) I guess Shinano's out. I'd rather see Kaga as a premium carrier for the Japanese line.

 

Enterprise is definitely a pick though I'll have to wait for a long time for that to happen (probably when British carriers/carrier split happen)

I want Saratoga for the USN as shes my favorite CV.  Barring that, ill take the Graf Zepplin just for something different, even if she has to be mostly paper stats.

Graf Zeppelin was completed, she just never had her air wing... which yes would be paper i'll agree on that, but the ship it's self was completed

 

50-60 hanger would be fine tier 8 considering the plane count in air groups the Japanese carriers use

 

As for this.... well this is what happens when you pull a 3 day shift and are posting before bed, you are correct on that remark, my apologies

The Graf Zeppelin was 80% completed and was used as a storage ship before being sunk as a block ship towards the end of the war.

I'd like to actually see the British carrier line show up... or Soviet carriers, with missiles.

I would say Graf Zeppelin for various reasons:

 

- The only Carrier Germany was about to have, so she would make a good premium

- it saves the Enterprise for a possible USN CV line split

- 35 knot speed of doom

- a completely different flavor could be made like AP bombs

Graf Zeppelin was already confirmed to be coming out as a premium CV.

I say the Zeppelin just so the German line will have one of each ship so players can stick exclusively to German ships. With the new German DDs, add the CV and yer set!

Shinano, or any IJN premium carrier at this point, due to the overall neglect of the IJN and the fact the USN has had Siapan for quite some time now.

shinano for me because higher tier cvs are always the most fun

 

I don't know... Let's compromise: USS Enterprise, CVN-65?

Neglect of the IJN? That's because the IJN is entirely too powerful!
