I feel like you sorta have too. 

 

You've run the 26 miles of that marathon, finish the .2

But also, changes to USN CVs are coming. When you combine whatever armament revisions are coming to USN CVs with their high squadron durability... they could become very powerful very easily.

I think the Hak is superior but a Tier X CV is a Tier X CV.  Not to mention OP, if you already got to Essex, like others said, you may as well finish the line off.  Whether you buy the ship is another matter.  Research it.  If the upcoming USN AP bombs shape up to be useful, I'd hate to see what Midway's Tier X DBs can do on someone.

It's better than the Essex straight up, and it's better against the Hak than the Essex is against the Taiho. There's no reason not to get it.

I haven't even fully upgraded her yet, but from what I can tell is first discern what the enemy is flying.  Equal or more fighters than your foe you can make some fun work of their planes.  If the enemy has more, use your fighters to lure theirs away to strike else where.  I am more of a "protect the fleet" type of person.  Which isn't always easy but is the most rewarding when I get that strafe right before the torp planes let lose and the friendly ship goes, THANK YOU!

Zerg was joking, asking how you could even get that loadout. 2/2/1 is two fighters, two torp bombers, and one dive bomber, which doesn't exist. You run 2/1/2, which is the default Midway loadout.

Ah, sorry, I always forget how people do it.  So its fighter, torp, bomber.  Got it.  My apologies on that.

Not a big deal in the slightest, was just explaining his comment. But yea, it's left to right in the loadout screen in your port. So Fighters, Torpedo Bombers, then Dive Bombers.

Might see some more loadout options but Midway is already very strong (and beats the Hakuryu handedly in AS) so there certainly wont be any big changes coming for 8/9/10 tiers.

Plus they still cant balance AP bombs so who knows when they'll become more widespread.
