Hello everyone,

 

i tried to search for info regarding those ships but coudnlt find.

 

Is there a way to get Essex? Will it be available again?

 

Is Enterprise listed to come back at least in rumors?

How much time she was offered? She came again some time after beeing removed? How many times?

 

Prediction regarding German carriers tree?

 

I mainly like to play carriers, so i am trying to get every single one of them.

 

There are some ships i see on blitz but i want to get in here as i mainly play on wows not blitz.

 

Why people call Aircraft Carriers as CV and not AC?

Essex was slated to reappear as the t10 in the alternate line.  Unsure of timeline of them following through on that.

No current rumor of Enterprise returning short of Santa Boxes.

CV - Carrier of heaVier then Air (or so I think I remember.

CV indicates "Cruiser, Voler", where "voler" is the French word meaning "to fly".  Thus, one could read CV as meaning "Cruiser, Aircraft".

That makes sense; but that was not what I remember from my old military days.  Looks like there is room for debate :D

Frankly, I don't see the USN using a french word as a pretext for the naming.  The abbreviations predate any French carriers.  The first CV was not a cruiser, but a modified collier.

Anyway, a quick search of google gave me this:

Anyway, cheers :D

I am still a newbie..

There is a lot to learn!

Usually people complains i lack skill yet.

 

I want to train BB later. (I would say [edited]) but people says BB, so BB.

I was unlocking all DD last week until tier 5, but now i am going for Midway.

I just got my Midway. Now i will begin the Japanese and Great Britain trees (Got Hermes, Ark Royal and Indomitable) . As in the past i was already with Lexington it was easier to finish North American.

 

For now i need to fet as much as i can get from bagration and ochakov.

 

Later i will spend time on Kaga, Saipan and Graf Zeppelin, all in the dock just waiting.

Saipan is a real treat.  If you can get good with her even when up tiered, you will be good at all of them.

It has midway planes and bombs but a lot less of them and the regeneration rate of planes is horrible.   It hits very hard when used correctly however it is very unforgiving if you mess up and attack the wrong ship or group of ships.

on the split would be Bogue, Independence and Essex - t5, t7 and t9.

No news regarding Enterprise? there is a lot of players running her those days.

I see enterprise is always available on wows blitz - 2 on 2 weeks.

 The news on Enterprise is that she was removed from sale because she is overpowered. The only way to get her from now on will be winning her in Christmas crates along with the Belfast, Giulio, etc.

They announced this already back when the carrier rework happened. Bogue is never coming back to the tech tree. Instead its going to look like this:

4 Langley

6 Ranger          6 Independence

8 Lexington     8 Yorktown

10 Midway       10 Essex

Is there a chance to come back?

On the tiers you are setting?

Bogue will probably come back as a premium the same way they did Kirov recently.

That would be cool, and makes all sense as there isnt a t6 USN CV premium.

Yea That’s sound interesting except I have a few problems with that. 1 Bouge is an escort carrier, so almost no hanger space and horrid speed, a worse Langley at ranger’s tier . 2 rockets, I’m pretty sure Bouge never used them.

This leads to a Saipan , Langley  and  indomitable hybrid that’s American at t6 with bad regen, small hanger capacity, slow speed and bad maneuvering, no rocket planes, and t8 planes.  It could work, just it would require a lot of testing to see how it performs in actual matches rather than theory.
