Just wanted to run this up the flagpole to see if anyone salutes it.

Kamikaze pilots!

You send out a strike against a ship which fails.   Do you simply have the survivors return to the CV or do you order them to kamikaze the target?

Think about it. What if sinking that target is the last minute difference between a victory and a defeat?

The subject of Kamikazes has been brought several times in the past. It won't happen, for the same reason swastikas are not used.

This and while individual IJN CV pilots did suicide into planes and ships the Kamikaze planes were launched from land.

That's what they said about subs.  I first asked about subs in 2016 and people scoffed and said it would never happen.

Subs are one thing. Adding an option for planes where they do a literal suicide bombing is another entirely.

I mean, just listen to yourself.

The submarine battle was/is a Proof of Concept of a ship type thought to have no place in the game.

You must see the difference between a ship type and a political/ideological/etc in-game representation.

EDIT:

Also there is no gameplay reward other than getting deplaned faster, and you can do that pretty easily if you want to.

I see it only as a last ditch option if you really need to destroy that one target to turn an imminent defeat into a victory.  I have had two or three battles over the weekend where the red team was ahead a couple of hundred points but only had one ship left to our two or three which included a CV.  A kamikaze attack might have won it for us. Who knows?

This way you spare the pilots the Flight of Shame back to the flatdeck.

 

There are no pilots...lol. Just very salty CV drivers.

While CVs have eternally regenerating aircraft? No, I don't think so!

You have already made your attack, you want an option to attack even when you no longer have ordinance?.

Even if you were to activate the option before the attack run the mechanic sounds unbalanced and exploitable.

You launched your attack and the red ship dodged or otherwise survived. The Reds deserve the win.

This mechanic would only have any use against a CV, honestly. And that'd completely defeat the point of what WG is going for: no CV sniping.

What if they couldn’t be regenerated if you attack this way?

So you want CV players to deplane themselves because eventually, you would run out of aircraft :Smile_sceptic: So either you are proposing this to make CV useless in battle or this was just a random thought :Smile_smile:

Then players from sea to shining sea would be dancing in the streets while thanking every God that ever existed in the minds of men.

It concerns me that you both think there is a parallel here, and it isn't immediately apparent why it will never happen.

Subs were not introduced previously because of technical difficulties - WG couldn't work out a way to introduce them to the game that they felt made them a worthwhile and balanced addition to the game.

Kamikaze pilots will never be introduced because they are culturally inappropriate.  There would be many people who would be deeply offended if a mechanic like that was introduced, and WG's natural response to concerns like those is to, quite understandably, avoid them.  This is why there is no Rising Sun flag or Swastikas for example.  It is a complete non-starter of a suggestion.
