Because those ships don't have the facilities to do so.

 

Wait for the Tone and Ise classes. They actually did field seaplane bombers.

Well then there would be more torps churning the water when IMO there are already too many. Walls of them!  You want more?

actually... some of the USN heavy cruisers did have the facilities. can't say they had torpedoes, but they could have had 50/500 lb bombs or depth charges.  There's also data showing  IJN cruisers (such as Myoko and Atago) were later outfitted to have their scout planes carry depth charges due to the increase of US submarines as a countermesure.:fish_book:

 

as for in-game, no I don't see this being a good idea.

Bombs maybe... but how you fix a torpedo to a plane with floats for an under carriage is a problem I don't think was ever solved in the real world.

I think giving them bombs would be fun, not sure how historical that would be but in a game with so many "make believe" ships and naval battles amongst the rocks, it wouldn't be that out of place. Personally I would like to see the option to choose between fighter or spotter on EVERY ship that has just the one (looking at you Russian Cruisers) as I find the spotter kind of useless. I would like to be able to give the fighter a command as well, so tired of seeing the incoming red attack planes and launching my fighter in plenty of time yet he does not attack them until after they have dropped their ordinance on me... Kind of annoying.. Maybe when you set your AA by selecting the incoming attack planes, the fighter should focus on whatever you have selected over and above anything else..

No.

Nixon will be re-elected before those ships are in the game; WoW can't even get regular CVs right.

I would just like the ability to select a primary target for them, like manual AA or DFAA.

Right was my thinking Umi.

BTW don't count ol Tricky Dickie out yet. I have seen the documentary "Futurama" and he makes a comeback!

Yeah, but that's in a thousand years, which is when the CV rework should be almost completed, and work on Tone and Ise can begin.
