Hi,

 

I bought a Bogue to complete the 'back to basics' carrier thingy and am a bit lost.

  • Did they remove manual drops/strafing?
  • What's the deal with AP bombs? Are they optional?
  • Any other changes to CV meta in the last year I should be aware of?

 

Thanks lads,

Thanks lads,

Yes, manual drops were removed at T4 and T5, much to the chagrin of many.

 

AP bombs were introduced on Enterprise (and may end up still being an option on Graf Zeppelin upon release) to mainly counter the German BB population.

 

Exit strafing became a thing on Saipan, but some more seasoned CV players can give you the 411 on that mechanic.

Long story short:
1. Yes, for T4 and 5. 

2. They are optional but only for selected ships, i.e Enterprise and Graf Zeppelin. They are mostly only useful against German BBs.

3. Essex and Midway gained a Fighter squad for their strike (Still gimped). Saipan OP.

To answer your questions:

Yes, about six or seven months after you left however only for tiers 4 and 5. 

Only on USS Enterprise and the Graf Zeppelin ATM altough WG has said that the USN line might get them soon* (likely in valve time)

I'm not sure what the Meta was a year and a half a go as I forgot. But if you balance defensive fighter work with scouting and balance combat recon and hole plugging with your bombers you should be fine.
