Now the CV rework is done and still a few thing that need to be work on. But let's get to back on the Junyo topic I agree with the fact it going to be a tier VI now when it comes out is the question.

Awhile back a few months I finish model IJN cv name Junyo. It was Kashiwara Maru( an ocean line) then converted into a Shokaku class. The Bridge same one on Taiho & Hakuryu. The next part I'm reading off the Instruction:  

It first saw Action in MI Operation in June 1942 in the attacks in Dutch Harbor on the 3rd & 5th, early October saw action in Solomon's, Guadalcanal Attacks, the battle of the South Sea, & 3rd battle of the Solomon's ( 9th of Nov.). It was damage near Okinoshima Island on Nov. 5th 1944 by US submarine then towed back to Kure by IJN cruiser Tone. The last battle it became Flagship of the 2nd IJN air fleet in the Battle off Mariana between 19th & 20th of June after that it receive 2 direct hits at funnel then torpedoed while in transportation to Brunei on 9th of Dec. sent to be repaired at Sasebo for the last time. The repairs started in March of 1945 then suspended in April of 1945 and then scrapped in 1947. 

Specifications for the Junyo:

Trail Displacement: 27,555 tons

Waterline length: 215.3 m

Maximum breadth: 26.70 m

Maximum speed: 25.5 knots

Number of planes carried: 48 regular & 5 auxiliary

Flight Deck: 210.3 m in length & 27.3 in width

Date of Completion: May 3rd 1942 at Mitsubishi Nagasaki Dockyard

Modernization: 8/1944 12 x 1 - 25/60 96-shiki & 6 x 28 - 120 AA rockets 

My option a well rounded tier 8 CV. Probably same tier aircraft as Enterprise. It maybe good can date for a premium ship. Let's see WG going to do? 

Let's get this topic back up and running.

Tier 8 seems a bit high to me. I think tier 5 or 6 is better due to the small hanger bay and low top speed. Still a great idea though i want my favorite CVL in this game! @Pigeon_of_War @SuperNikoPower mind moving this up the chain? Also shameless plug here but appropriate.

I can fully agree that Junyo or Hiyo can be a tier VI premium. Aircraft: Attackers: A6M5 or A6M2, DB: D3Y or D4Y, & TB: B6N

Hopefully we get this back alive.

Junyou would be a very nice T6 premium CV for IJN if devs will add T6 premium CVs.

I would do a version of Junyo for Tier VI, themed for her participation in Operation AL, the Aleutian Islands in 1942.  Yamamoto sent a diversionary attack to the Aleutians at the same time as Midway (Operation MI), and Junyo was part of that force.  No Fleet CVs were sent, only CVLs Junyo and Ryujo.

 

Junyo '42, "Operation AL"

Speed 25.5kts (Ryujo is 28kts, historically RJ is supposed to be 29kts)

A6M2 Zero fighters (upgraded Ryujo fighters)

D3A Val dive bombers (stock Ryujo DBs).  Should have HE bombs instead of AP.

Those are the aircraft Junyo would have had for this operation.  According to the information here, Junyo had only sent A6M2 Zeroes and D3A1 Vals in several sorties.  Timeframe in that table pertinent to air operations for that mission start 3 June 1942.  For initial installation attack, Zeroes and D3A1s were sent, no TBs mentioned.  Even later on that same day where the planes are dispatched to attack US DDs, no TBs mentioned being used, so only Zeroes and DBs again.

With no TBs assigned to Junyo, we can have larger reserves for the D3A Val DBs.  Junyo at this time was more oriented towards fighters, so the increased bomber reserves can represent that.  It is AFTER the harsh lessons of Midway that she gets more fighters with a decrease in bombers.  But this version of Junyo I'm presenting is before those changes to her aircraft assignments.

Junyo was involved in the battle of Santa Cruz Islands and some of her planes torpedoed the then pretty much dead Hornet. You can watch a pretty well done CGI video of the battle

here:

At time index 7:49 you will see Junyo. And again at 22:44

It's time to put a nail in the coffin for this forum. Since nobody including WG development cares for the Junyo. So close it up.
