Got one for free in a container.

It's a Saipan... Pan-Asian Saipan.
Since I have the real Saipan (before the CV rework), I know how it works.  It's the same.

The new Captain setup allows you to train your high-point Pan-Am DD captain for CV.

so we are cloning the least desirable CV in the game?

Saipan isn't bad.

How a player as bad as this player that has it ... is a tester is staggering. 262 games 45% 400 pr player playing a ship no one has heard of. what possible data could you gain from this?

It's a seal clubber in Asymetric Battles.  T10 planes against T6 AA...   What's that??

Apart from that, it's a Co-Op bote.  You don't want to face a Shokaku or Lexington in this.

If it isn't bad, what CV is?

Graf Zeppelin &  Indomitable. They are definitely worse than Saipan.

The worst CV experience is when yours is a 'Double Agent'.
That's when one player with two accounts sync-dropped with two computers. 
He can see both sides of the battle which gives the ability to take out or spot key ships and steer the outcome.

Testers aren't necessarily playing to win. They are testing.

Graf Zeppelin, Indomitable, and the BRN tech tree CV's immediately jump to mind.

Saipan has T10 Midway planes that are very strong on a T8 CV. It just has low reserves with a long regen. You just have to be careful with the planes.

Graf Zeppelin has the secondaries of a GK.  There is no hanging back.  Just charge into the cap and wipe out the DDs as you go.
DON'T do that in a Saipan (or now Sanzang).  That boat has ZERO secondaries.  DDs after you?  Launch rocket fighters and run for your life.

Zeppelin isn't bad if you actually use her as a carrier and don't try to use her as a cruiser.

Saipan is pretty well balanced at tier 8, with nothing but tier 8's. When she's bottom tier, she suffers more than any other CV, as her reserves don't allow her to take any casualties and her planes are slow. When she's top tier in a mostly tire 6 match, she's almost as devastating as Kaga.

GZ has more effective secondaries than GK, just a shorter range.

Actually trying to use those secondaries will just get you killed, which is a big reason GZ has a bad rep.

Now, when it just happens that you're secondaries get some action, it's usually hilarious.

Don't get me wrong, I love the Saipan! I'm 37% and a 700 PR in it. It's a great CV!

I may have room for improvement, but not much. I am close to maxed out on skill with this CV, Its just that Zangwap caught my attention with the coolio name and snazzy paint job. I thought it was a new Supercruiser CV.

I played one game in it today and resold it. The credits have more than paid for equipping Georgia. I learned the new CV system prior to 10.0 and what I saw today in addition to crappy performance against bots no less tells me that CV's are nerfed really badly. Too many changes against the plane attack system.

It seems like you have considerable room for improvement.
