Encountered a new German CV in game, earlier today.

It was an "early access" being played by someone on the opposing team.  I didn't get the chance to view it closely.

I'll try to enclose a replay.

I can't see the replay, but might it be the Rhein?

Nope.   
It was Tier-6.  But not listed in the Wiki, yet.

Yes, the full name escapes me but it’s currently in testing. The description says it was the forerunner to the Graft Z. The camo and planes look very nice. Give me about an hour and I can get the full name unless someone beats me to it.

Update: Erich Lowenhardt

I believe the 2ndary beast that the GZ is, will be particular to that ship, not the whole line but we'll find out soon enough!

Yes, I heard that the upcoming German CV's most likely will not have monstrous Secondaries, unlike how Graf Zeppelin does. IMHO, it's a pity... but as you said, we'll see. :fish_book:

Just played against a TX german cv... Cancer redefined. 120+ planes shot down, still could send out squads at half health. Far and away, DD gameplay can be crushed with it with the insta spotting. Also, noted it has no issue blowing a Kremlin outta the water. Yay, new cancer...

No proof, is this fake news or a player whining about small planes again. Play the F.D, Roosevelt. News says there planes are fast and don't die like vampire bats. :Smile_popcorn:

The Erin Lockhart (insert harry potter theme here) is supposed to have AP rockets, the standard German torpedoes, and he bombs unlike all the other German carriers. It is supposed to be the premium t6.

Isn't that a good thing?

FDR? Eh, too situational based on what I've heard from players and seen myself in match, I'll stick with my Midway.  

When you get to high tier matches, you tend to see a lot more TX carriers and ST's. The DE TX CV happens to be one. Ran into two back to back actually on Red team. one was in a clan community I used to be a part of. It's not whining, just noting that outside the HakAP level of bombs (for BB cit dmg), the Germans will flood the map with near insta spotting and the meta will shift hard away from DD's again. The problem wasn't necessarily with their planes being able to be swatted or not, it's that at literally, 120 planes shot down; he was still fielding half-health squads with abandon (shoot down all planes, next squad is back up). Hak and Midway can't do that. What it *WILL* mean is that DDs in such a match will not cap, not contest, and likely refrain from doing DD things. If the game was looking for a way to shift more players away from DD play, this definitely helps out.
