Historically, the Essex is on par with the Shokaku. With it's armoured deck, the Tiaho is in line with the Midway. It was sunk by an inexperienced crew.

Midway had a much greater displacement. Same for actual wartime displacements of Shokaku and Essex.

Midway also had a much larger compliment of aircraft. 

Taiho in WoWS has a greatly inflated compliment.  She had as many planes as the old Hiryu, around 60-something.  In WoWS, it's 83.

Even her armored flight deck was inflated.  IRL it was 79mm.  In WoWS it's 95 freaking millimeters.

 

Midways's actual 130 aircraft compliment has been nerfed to 116.  Her flight deck is an ahistorical 87mm while in reality it was 89 :Smile_veryhappy:

 

IJN CVs have been artificially buffed in this game big time.
