Hello, I was wondering if there had been any discussion about aircraft using smokebombs to support friendly ships.

I'm not certain if that has historical context, but its not a bad idea. But I feel like it would be impractical, I mean it would have to be selected as ammunition before the battle and taking a non damaging bomb over the current options is not a great idea already AND there is no real way as of yet to give XP or Credits for providing cover through smoke or distracting the enemy.

It would be very interesting, but extensive testing would be required. It would need to be substantially rewarded since it would replace a source of damage.

the big problem with this idea is that it presumes some situational awareness on your teams side. I honestly think radar bombers are more practical (there was a De Havilland Mosquito night fighter that had radar on it).

Avengers and Hellcats had it too...

Only problem would be the IJN's lack of airborn radar, I'm sure no one would mind though.

Air drop hydro-buoys maybe?

With a smaller squadron size so there's some risk in dropping direct into smoke

I was thinking somthing like a trade put for fighters where they can't strafe and instead are capable of dropping a short duration smoke screen or omthing like that.

Smoke bombs could be interesting.Although I'd rather see either airborne rockets or strafes that hurt AA mounts, as it would make way more sense than the current strafe...

perfect balance, you strike my battleships with more attack planes squadrons then I have total squadrons, I spot your DDs, kutrozovs and RN CLs to be deleted no matter how hard they smoke up.

pass along "remove strafe" while you're at it.
