Keep in mind my experience doing this is with primarily Hakuryu and Enterprise.

Anyone else put their carrier like into the fray? Like literally up there with your battleships and cruisers, in Co-op it's seemed surprisingly effective since fires don't seem to last too long "I can't burn if I've already turned on the water sprinklers ;p" and for unknown reasons the bots seems to auto switch to he if the cv is spotted, even if the shells are in the tube kinda like having the enemy the get a double long reload.

While I'm not saying you should do it in the same way as yoloing mid on two brothers ends in the deep end of the pool more often than success. but when you see a midway rushing ahead(!) of your ship secondary dueling a enemy bb and live (yes it was as strange as it sounds). and when you mvp save a low health ally by diverting fire. Just saying we cv's have armor and hp too ;p

 

Anyway meme post over ;v

I have seen the T6 RN carrier rolling in to get cap points in epicenter before.  The guy even got a secondary kill on a BB.

GZ's also like to work close to get some secondary work in.

I've seen a couple good CV players get pretty close to the battle line to cycle planes faster, but only if there is sufficient island cover (and they're fairly certain the flank isn't going to melt). Hakuryu and Graf Zeppelin are especially dangerous due to their secondaries. I watched a Hakuryu blast a near full health Grozovoi out of the water just yesterday.

Nobody remembers the Kaga, literally a Carrier squatting on top of a Battleship.

I love taking my GZ into the thick of the fight at the end of the battle. Her secondaries can really rack-up some damage and I've also gotten a couple of ram kills and survived to keep playing in two games!

I'm not sure I've seen a Kaga stroll up to the battle lines, nor am I familiar with her secondary loadout.

The Furious occasionally regresses to the good old days, when it was a light battlecruiser with a flying-off deck forward, a citadel-smashing murder machine aft, and 5.5 inch gun turrets and torpedo tubes everywhere.

I'd really like to see the Corageous class added to game at some point. Could be pretty interesting at tier 5 if the secondaries were given sufficient range and RoF to make up for only having 2 main turrets. Could even model the torps Mutsu style.

Too few main guns. I would prefer to see them at Tier 4, with the reduced number of barrels acting as the balancing factor... and with the option of selecting a B carrier hull that gave them Tier 4 airplanes, or maybe the Furious's stock planes to make them a low-tier British Saipan.

15s at tier 4 would be too strong, even with just 4 of them. Myogi can do nasty things with her 6 14s... and 15s can bow pen tier 4 and 5 BBs.

Tier 5 would be fine, just give it a 25s reload and Graf Spee accuracy. 

Furious' single 18 would be hilarious, if it could hit anything. This game really needs a version of the KV-2, something to derp the crap out of people with HE.

Give us the intended form, with 18's front and rear (I read somewhere that the barbette was actually still there under the flight deck; if necessary, they could have taken the deck off in the dockyard and inserted the gun into the turret.) Put a 40 second reload and original QE turret rotation on it, with Mikasa dispersion. Then put her in at T4 for a patch and see what happens.
