Curious Carriers Carry No Magazine?

So what do you think here:

Signal flags for a carrier has the Juliet Charlie flag blocked; meaning, you can't use it on a carrier. 

However, I am able to mount signal flags that increase the likelihood of my magazine detonating, like the Juliet Whiskey Unaone (15% + chance of flooding for 5% + magazine detonation).

So - do my carriers have magazines? (Seems they should). 

If so - how come I can't play the anti-detonation flag.

If not, how can the 5% increase in the chance of a magazine detonation work against a carrier? 

Color me curious. :cap_haloween:

Because carriers can’t detonate in this game.

CVs have not had magazines since I started playing in open beta. The 5 percent increase in detonation chance works just like you having the anti detonation flag on. 0 times 5 percent is still 0.

I saw a carrier detonate a couple of years ago. Sadly I didn't realise at the time it was supposed to be impossible, so no screenshots and therefore it didn't happen.

DD's don't have a citadel, it is a game function.

At the rate their going with invulnerable CVs, I sometimes think they should just scrap the ship all together, you just get an airfield on an island that your planes are based out of. It can't be sunk, burned, or controlled, seems to be exactly what WG wants for CVs.

Their whole hangar is a magazine

And then, deeper in the ship, are the aviation fuel reserves and ammunition stores.

aircraft carriers can never be detonated since they have no magazine.

Carriers have never been able to detonate.

The burn and flood reductions are to reduce the event where your carrier gets sniped, because having a carrier is usually preferred to not having a carrier while they have a carrier. All these are to keep your carrier alive during air strikes and sniping attempts, which in turn means you're going to get more out of your carrier

I still remember the day J30 shot at a cv some 20km with a Yammy in alpha and it was instant delete. He gave me a healthy appreciation to the power that is the yammy.

@grumpymunky what you saw was a devastating strike not a detonation. In other ships the anti det signal prevents them from being detonation, but a devastating strike hit usually results in ones destruction.

While it cannot be detonated, CVs are easy to Citadel once they are spotted.

So hte CVs that I have sunk and burned have been a figment of my imagination?

CVs are quite squishy - they don't have a ton of armor so lob a few AP shells at it and they do quite a lot of damage.  Adding a citadel would make them too squishy imho,

All CVs have citidels, they just don't have ammo spaces that can induce a detonation.

Even then, modeling a huge "magazine" would just make the CVs detonate at even the smallest HE hitting it due to little to no armor.

There is a missing quote (and post) from @Taichunger.

With his views of CVs, one can only imagine what was in that post.
