Congrats to @AdmiralMudkip who just now bagged 98 aircraft kills and Clear Sky badge to go with it, as well as team high score.  I've never been in a match when someone shot down that many planes.

His Hakuryu was using the rarely seen AS spec (for Hak anyways).  He still was a nightmare for the enemy DDs.

Is that a Hakuryu?! Not seen one of those yet, how is it?

No ship wants to be on the receiving end of a Strike Hakuryu.  12 TBs in 3 units, and they're fast.  Our CV however was an Air Superiority Hakuryu.  You can check her values here:

Midway has gotten a lot better than before the USN CV Revamp but Hakuryu is still IMO, one of the most dangerous ships in the game.

The Midway is pretty scary herself, she also has 12 TB's now (T8 albeit but still). Without any AA perks those planes will destroy you no matter what ship you are in very very fast. I love my Midway at the moment, farming the lone BB's that stray away from the fleet is a hilarious amount of damage.

In relation to this post though, fighting AS Hak is very hard in a Midway. Those four fighter squads with faster speed is ridiculous to go up against. I have very few issue going up against Strike Hak though even with the lower tier fighters due to the dogfighting expert skill. 

Finding a Stock Hak is a Midways wet dream, you munch his fighters like paper.

The issue currently with the T10 CV's however is that Midway is just too strong against Strike Haku. It takes a highly skilled Haku player in order to beat a Midway player who knows how to strafe simply due to the larger hangar capacity of Midway and the larger squads. The AS (4-2-2) Haku allows for easier fighter engagement and thus easier ar supremacy at the loss of strike power. With only two TB and DB squads, the Haku squads are much easier to shoot down completely and negate strikes thus leading to little damage on either CV because the AS denies the Midway, but natural AA denies the Haku. IMO Haku is in a weird spot of not really having a build which works against Midway because you either get your fighters absolutely destroyed or you lack damage to deal with the large battleship population around. Midway has both strong fighter power and strong strike power which just makes it a more all around carrier right now.
