The team was terrablr as the DD decided to die to gun fire in 5 min.

The rockets seemed to have a different flight path than Midway but might have been my POV.

The planes look glacierly slow.

The rockets launch in along conga line 60 rockets long

and yes, her planes go at best about 150knts, glacially slow for T10 standards.

What kind of ships were the AP rocket planes of FDR going after?  How effective?  Wouldn't surprise me if those AP rockets are expressly made for smashing Cruisers.

Kind of like the carped bombing.

It really seems like a meh cv.  The planes are sooooo slowwww you could drop a fighter over them and they would have to recall.

Interesting, I would have thought they would have been ideal for dealing with the more lighter armored Cruisers, better targets than heavily armored Battleships.

Personaly I dont want ap rockets and dombs because you have to defence against DD.  You can try and torp them but thats more than difficult.

I can understand that.  It's just we're at a point in the game that the gimmicks to differentiate newer ships from older ones is only going to get weirder and weirder as time progresses.

 

For example, "Why would I get FDR if it's basically the same as my Midway?"

FDR doesn't have AP rockets, she's armed with HVAR.

Good point about DD defense. 

I haven't seen a video of it I am currious if the torpedo format is exactly the same as the Midway's

As far as I know, there is one FDR video on youtube (1 game but 4 different clips) posted a week ago from a 3rd person perspective.   One torpedo attack launches 8 torps....   why WG

From a semi realism perspective, the idea that a plane's rockets shouldn't launch all at once seems real enough, though I'd have thought that a more realistic mode would be for them to be launched in pairs (i.e. 1 from each wing).  But the idea of rockets being more of a stream not only seems a little more realistic (though I could be wrong about that), it also seems like it's a potentially good way to "fix" rocket planes vs DDs as it seems like landing an entire plane's load of rockets on a target DD would be nearly impossible.  It might not be that hard to land a handful of them on a DD, but a lot of them, not so much.

Then there's the question of how many rockets will the plane have to ripple fire like this.  A small number of large rockets might be better against larger targets while the large number of smaller rockets might be better against DDs.

 

Overall, this seems like an interesting idea.  Mind you, I'm ignoring the AP aspect of the FDR's rockets in this post.  But I find the idea of ripple firing the rockets rather intriguing.

Thats a crazy spread.  Its perfixt for bunched up ships. I don't know if you have tryed to use Midway torps but you miss alot more than hit.  You have to start your run 6km ount or you cant get a good dispertion .

Also notice that he only got 1 hit.

She was never stated to have AP rockets.  AP rockets were announced at the same time as FDR and people assumed that FDR would have them.

Its a great point. That will go game wide.  Thusly no smoke very fast dd with op aa for the new EU DD.  Holland is way to much.

Lets face it there is only so much you can do.  

I think they should have slowed down the ship line introduction . there are only so many nation to do.

Ok.  I was assuming fdr would have it.  Maybe there savuming them for German CV line.

Or maybe you will be able to have a choice before take off ap or he.

That's probably the Theodore Roosevelt, this is the Franklin Roosevelt, a Midway-class CV.

nope. Haven't seen anything regarding FDR ever having AP rockets, its all been HE ordinance. Probably stemmed from FDR being announced at almost the same time as AP rockets, so people assumed she would be the guinea pig for them, but in actuality its German CVs getting AP rockets.

I confess I am a guilty party here. If it doesn't have AP rockets then I didn't do my due diligence and research it myself. I thought it was armed with AP rockets.

There is a second video were got like two hits and the ship sunk.   If the ship had more HP, he would of hit 5 I believe.   I have played Haku, not Midway...

Midway torps are so slow and you have to start the run so far back that its easy to dodge them.

Have not played Haku I am on t8.  I found out that with the heals you can take a full sq use the heal and get r full runs before you run out of planes.

AP no.ba are so hit or miss.  You get cits its great if you dobt it like a wasted run.
