The attack aircraft armed with rockets, so how exactly do CV fend off enemy's dive bombers and torp planes that were busy rapping your teammate?  the pre-rework old CV you can send attack planes but now they're only launching rockets to ships.

You can try dropping some fighters in their path, but mostly you can't anymore. Just like you can't really defend a teammate against battleship shells.

Fighters are generally good for denying strike paths. Otherwise, it's kind of on your team to have situational awareness and AA sector control.

It's no longer the CVs job, you are as limited as anyone else with consumables, from what I can tell. It will be better to depend on cruisers.

So the new CV rework is only good for offense and not capable to defend teammates, that kinda sucks when your mates are being [edited] by torps and bombers and there's not much you can do to help.....

That's the same situation as if they let themselves get wrecked by shells and destroyer torps, which happens all the time. You can't captain their ships for them.

You have to fly over there, and drop a squadron of fighters consumable over your teammate.

yeah it's a lot more difficult than pre-rework CV, but on the bright side, this lowers the skill floor and skill ceiling of CVs, so unicum CVs can no longer completely neutralize a novice CV captain.

BBs and cruisers that can mount fighter vs cat plane get a squad of 2-4 fighters per use.  Aside from CVs dropping fighters like DDs drop smoke that is about it.

@Xcalib3r Any team mate that does not stay close to the CV in Task Force Formation does not deserve to be defended by the CV! This was true before and even more so now since the CV CAP is automated and basically useless!
