I typically have one ship I mostly play in an op, but if I'm feeling adventurous I'll take one of the others listed. I don't ever play CV or DD in ops as I don't think I am good enough with those two types and would just hurt my team. With that said, here are my picks:

Killer Whale - Graf Spee, Budyonny, and Duca D'Aosta, sometimes Aoba.

Narai - Scharnhorst and Gneisenau.

Raptor Rescue - Normandie, Normandie, Normandie. Once in a blue moon, Izmail.

Aegis - Arizona, New Mex, Izmail.

Newport - Pensacola, Devonshire, Dallas, Dunkerque.

Killer Whale:

Mutsu, Dunkerque, Izmail.

Molotov, Huanghe, Perth.

Can't remember the last time I tried a DD in Killer Whale, maybe once or twice when it first came out.

Never tried a CV in any Operation.

 

Raptor Rescue:

Mutsu, Dunkerque, Izmail.

Molotov, Huanghe, Perth.

Can't remember the last time I tried a DD in Raptor Rescue, maybe once or twice when it first came out.

Never tried a CV in any Operation.

 

Aegis:

Mutsu, Dunkerque, Izmail.

Molotov, Huanghe, Perth.

Can't remember the last time I tried a DD in Aegis, maybe once or twice when it first came out.

Never tried a CV in any Operation.

 

Defeat of Naval Station Newport:

I just quit playing that week.

 

Narai:

Strasbourg, Sharney.

Hmm...

Narai - Atlanta. Melt everything, heal in circle, torp what you can't burn down. Boise is also good, still melt everything but you can heal on your own.

Raptor - Any CV really. That one is all spread out, being able to zip around is nice. The hard part is getting the damn autopilot to do what you want and not drive you into the enemy.

The other ones not sure, most cruisers are good if you can stay alive. I don't play Ops enough to have that much experience. DDs though are generally not as good.

For Killer Whale:

DD: Monaghan (torp reload boost, US smoke in case you need to  provide cover for the exit)

Cruiser:  Leander (heal, smoke, and single fire torp option to kill the transports quickly,) hon. mention: Budyonny, and Graf Spee

BB: Dunkerque (reasonably fast and maneuverable, and accurate guns.)

CV: possibly Weser (AP dive bombers to deal with the BBs)

 

For Raptor, and Aegis:

DD: Monaghan (same as KW, except smoke for Raptor.)

CA/CL: Nurnberg/Makarov (fast firing guns, health less of an issue with repair ship available.)

BB: Dunkerque, Izmail

CV: I've only done this with the Ranger since the re-release, but Ryujo worked well back in the day (should still work.)

 

Newport:

DD : ?

CA/CL: Nurnberg/Makarov (you need to kill ships quickly)

BB: Dunkerque

CV:  ?? I'm guessing Ryujo should work well

 

Narai:

DD: ??

CA/CL: Atlanta, Munchen (both fast firing ships)

BB: Gneisenau, Scharnhorst

For Narai...Fiji...

If you don't have the Fiji...my 2nd choice would be to get the Fiji...

To quote Samuel L Jackson from the movie Jackie Brown...

"When you absolutely positively need to kill every MFer in the place...except NO substitutions" (he was referring to an AK 47...but seeing as you can't use an AK 47 in Narai)...

FIJI!!!

For Killer Whale and Raptor Rescue I like Leander for its rate of fire & smoke and Normandie for 12 guns and 30 knots.

For Narai I like Lyon for 16 guns (my favorite BB) and Fiji (rate of fire, smoke and torps).

For Newport it doesn't matter, you get slaughtered in any ships.

Destroyers are a challenging class in any scenario because constant enemy reinforcements means you have to give out damage without taking any until near the end.
