Any chance premium CVs will be put up for coal?

I really want a premium CV. Unfortunately, I'm f2p, and even with the coupon it will take me ages to get enough gold for the Ark Royal, which is the cheapest prem CV.

(It might also have something to do with my weird obsession with it, but that's probably just a coincedence)

Eventually, almost certainly (provided the hand actually lasts long enough to do so). Soon, no one knows outside WG and they’re not telling yet. There are a few premium CVs in testing right now or that have been recently that could be freemiums. Since we already have one for steel, that makes any future ones more likely to be for the other resources. Since they’re guaranteed t10s, I’d expect one to go to the RB before coal, but eventually there will be a coal CV.

TBH I doubt it, but there is possibility WG may reskin Lexington and call it "Yorktown" or "Hornet".

It's unclear how popular CVs would be if placed in Armory. Not counting FDR as it's Steel, so pretty much closed except to CB/Ranked diehard fans.

Only t10 CVs?

I have 4k coal right now, might not be a viable option...

Likely only t10s, yes, since the freemium ships tend to be t9/10 only. And as there are no t9 carriers anymore.... although there’s a chance (albeit very unlikely based on previous instances) that WG may make a t8 CV available as a resource ship since there are no t9s.

I’m sure we’ll also get a t6 CV rotated into the coal section at some point as well, but in terms of the main coal (or other resource) ships, you’re looking at pretty much exclusively t9 and 10. The rest have either been primarily doubloons/cash or limited initial ‘free’ release before being sold or shoved in loot crates.


Decinitely start saving your coal either way for a high tier ship. In terms of return on investment, they’re some of the best uses for your artificially limited resources like coal and steel, as well as typically being very strong ships on their own. They also have some of the best credit earning potential in the game (the t9s are among the best credit earners in the game, and the t10s can still make a lot of profit with their special economy), and in the case of the t10s will also give you options for competitive modes if you choose to go that route. Get into a clan with a maxed coal port asap and you can earn at least 1700-2000 coal a day between crates and daily missions. That might not sound like a lot on its own, but it’s typically enough to get a coal t9/10 ship with the coupon every four to six months.

A re-skinned Lexington would be the Saratoga (which the in-game model actually depicts).

I think you meant Enterprise, sister to Yorktown and Honet.

Hmm yeah I would say that it is very likely.

There is the German. What is the other one?

I hope so.  I was saving rb point for FDR but that did not happen

I feel compelled to point out there is an operational BOT Bogue in Raptor Rescue. That could very easily be turned into a coal premium CV, debatably at either tier 4 or 6. They already announced that whenever the Essex line comes in, Bogue will not be a part of it.

Eventually we’ll see a CV available for resources, probably Ark Royal and/or Lowenhardt.

The tech-tree CV's can't perform the tasks you need to accomplish?

Why would Yorktown and Hornet be reskinned Lexingtons?  Saratoga was the only other Lexington class CV.  Yorktown was it's own class that included Hornet and Enterprise.  If anything they might put out Hornet or Yorktown, I would guess Hornet more given the significance of Doolittle's Raid, to appease those that couldn't get Enterprise.

The current Lexington is Saratoga as fitted out in late 1944. Lexington never carried 5/38 DP twin turrets. She had 4 8-inch twin turrets similar to Number 2 turret of Pensacola until late March 1942, when they were removed at Pearl pending replacement by the 5/38 twins. She never got them before being sunk at Coral Sea. There is room for the two of them in the game, but as was pointed out, only WG knows...

You know sometimes i'm such a snob but I would suggest any more premium CVs would require 100 random games in the next lowest tier's CVs, unless of course it is a tier 4 CV.  :cap_old:

Yorktown is supposed to be in the Alt USN line as a tier 8, which would leave Hornet as a premium.

I would like to see the (Essex class) USS Bunker Hill CV-17 1943 version for the Operation Cherry Blossom, with the ms-21 (sea blue gray) paint scheme, come out as a premium.

Well, um, I REALLY want an Ark Royal. Even if they only put up t10 coal ships, the outrage would still be fun to watch.
