Thanks. Was surprised to see how badly French cruisers get wrecked by these. But that's what happens when you thick deck protection according to Wargaming.

Thanks, was planning on testing out the AP bombs on the amagi when I got home. Looks like she might be my goto for ranked than.

The final GZ form has been announced ... and it looks like it's using those super effective and consistently hard hitting AP bombs that were tested earlier. While I'm happy it's final form is MUCH stronger than the garbage it was on release, I'm also super sad that the USN flavor AP dive bombers are so so much worse in every way. Cause it's very important for Wargaming that USN CVs are never ever competitive (although Midway is quite strong with double torp bombers).

USN AP baaaaadly needs a penetration buff. Cause right now, if I am not mistaken, it can only reliably damage ships with deck armors in the 70 to 150mm range or so, whereas GZ ones have a MUCH wider margin. And an absolutely tiny auto drop circle.

Graf is not really "that" competitive, his fighters are weak and low reserve, his formation with a "pseudo-AS" lacks of strike power... and the AP bombs is good but not "that" good.

Enterprise is much better, a balanced ship, with a strong fighter reserve and have torps (even with the weird patter) and bombs.

Graf Zeppelin bombs are going to be far more effective than the US right now, I will do a full stack report like this one for the zeppelin once they say she is finished. 

enterprise wins with the far superior fighter load out, though depending how the think of the graf zep that might change.

in the end the graf zep bombs opens up a wider selection of ships to bomb, even the North Carolina and Montana will be penned for a good amount.  The Graf zep will also be able to pen smaller ships far more effectively. I dev striking DDs in my small pool of games i had with her.
