Alright, I've scoured the Kremlin archives and dug up some Soviet CV paper ships that will undoubtedly be added, probably in 2021-22. Here are my suggestions with name proposals.

 

The line will start with cruisers I ORLAN, then go through II NOVIK, followed by DDs II STOROZHEVOI, III DERZKI, and IV IZYASLAV, keeping in line with existing routes to get to CVs. Then, the actual CVs will start:

Tier IV KOMSOMOLEC

avianoscy_Rossii_2.jpg

Displacement: 12,000 tons standard

Length: 143.2 meters / 465 feet

Deck: 137 m. / 445 ft

Width: 22m. / 72 ft

Speed: 15 knots

Capacity: 42 aircraft

16 bombers

26 fighters

Armament: 16 x 102mm (4xbow, 4xstern, 8xdeck), 10 x 40mm

This training ship was planned to be converted into a carrier in the mid 20's, but the project was never realized.

 

Tier VI Project 72

Name ideas: {Pavel} Argeyev, {Ivan} Smirnov, {Alexander} Kazakov, {Vasili} Yanchenko (All flying aces, like German CVs)

avproject72_zpsadc91a9aoriginal.png

Displacement: 29,000-30,755 tons (standard), 37,390 (maximum)

Length: 255 m

Width: 28 m waterline, 45 m flight deck

Draft: 7,0 m (standard displacement), 8,5 m (full load displacement)

A light CV project from the late 30's, cancelled due to WW2.

 

Tier VIII Project Kostromitinov

Name ideas: Kostromitinov, {Pavel} Argeyev, {Ivan} Smirnov, {Alexander} Kazakov, {Vasili} Yanchenko.

th?id=OIP.ZW-udQnT_eKh6T0-hoxJIwHaB2&pid

Aircraft

66 Fighters

40 bombers/torpedo bombers

Guns: 8×2 152 mm, 4×3+6×2 100mm Flak, 8×4 – 37mm, 22×2 – 23 mm

Catapults: 2

Armour (mm)

Deck: 50+130

Side: 100

Hanger: 40

Top Speed 32 kts

Range at 18 kts: 8000km

Displacement: 48,000 tons.

This was a study of the german carrier Graf Zeppelin by Comrade Kostromitinov, who then designed an improved ship. The project never saw the light of day.

Alright, onto what you're actually here for.


Tier X Project 85

Name Ideas: Kalinka, Korobeiniki, Pobeda.

85-line2.gif

Displacement: Over 50,000 tons

Armor: Belt: 90mm, Deck: 20mm-70mm
Armament: 8 dual AA 100mm, 6 quad AA 57mm, 8 quad AA 25mm
Aircraft: 40 "Tigr" (Mig-19 variant) fighters

Might wanna swap those planes out....hehe... 

 

BONUS:

Premium VI Project 71

Name ideas: {Pavel} Argeyev, {Ivan} Smirnov, {Alexander} Kazakov, {Vasili} Yanchenko

71-line1.gif

Full speed: 34-35 knots
Armor: Belt - 100mm - 75mm, Deck 90mm, Command center 50mm 
Armament: 8 AA 100mm, 4 quad AA 37mm (range Ver - 5km,160-180 shots/sec).
20 AA 12.7mm HMGs.
Aircraft: 10 recon-bomber aircraft, 20 fighters.

ALRIGHT!! 

We're done. Now we have a potential new CV line to take advantage o- I mean, grind.

To be honest, it was a little scary how easy it was to find these and how carelessly WG could implement them into the game.

I was thinking their gimmick would be a strong emphasis on Quality over Quantity, like VII Saipan. So maybe high HP planes with more powerful bombs and torpedoes, with a slower speed. But I'm sure balans will make that average speed.

The premium could have faster planes.

Anyway, thanks for coming to my TED Talk. I really appreciate it, and want to see your responses down below!

Mark my words: We'll have a Soviet CV line by 2022.

I SERVE THE SOVIET UNION!

Well they better give them Vodka stores somewhere, or I'm not in on this

 

BTW, it's Quantity over Quality...

not vise versa

so anyone in on 100 bombers a squadron?

I'm a bit worried about what would be considered a standard/fleet carrier on your scale...

 

Is there no data on displacement of the T8-T10 proposal?

I'll let you all figure that joke out for yourselves.

I assume the T10 will be something like this:

Double the size, but some Kirovs on the deck, paint a hammer and sickle on the deck, and make it blasting the anthem, then maybe

I'm assuming the tier 7 is actually the tier 8. Splitting the difference between tier 7 and tier 8 would probably break MM.

Number of aircraft is kinda pointless, tech tree CV's have one and a half squadrons of each aircraft type base. No reason to mess with that, and leave toying with that for premiums with mistiered airwings.

The Russians were a big user of rockets, having both air launched AP and HE rockets, and they hung them on everything.

The Russian Dive Bombers and Torpedo bombers are all large twin engine aircraft. So figure large, tough, fast, and not very agile. Probably smaller squadrons.

I'm guessing AP rockets planes, a RN style torpedo bomber for anti-BB (and to stick with the typical Russian short ranged torp), and HE dive bombers for anti-DD work (small, fast accurate HE bombs).

the consumables will be to spawn a team of tugboats, the CVs get an infinite amount of these, they also get a Drydock consumable, and a advanced Damage Control consumable as the CV will randomly burst into flames all on its own for no reason whatsoever

Its special perk should be no penalty for team killing... :cap_haloween:

Just like the Kuznetsov give it just a giant amount of smoke coming out of it that it can be spotted halfway across the map, that way the CV always has to stay on the move

Give them all tugs since their current CV still needs then occasionally. And a drydock. 

Lower tier AP bombers:

Dont forget the drydock has to sink with the carrier in it.

 

Also for planes to regenerate the ship has to sit perfectly still and cant be spotted, because resupplying takes forever and nobody would do that under fire and not moving.

The hull is only a quarter of the ship...
