American Tier VIII Carrier: Enterprise ‘42

 Oh, Boy. Time to Stir the pot. However, with the release of Hornet, I thought it was time to pay homage to her much more famous sister: Enterprise. We all know about Enterprise, already in-game, overpowered, etc. However, this will be a 1942 fit, circa Midway-Guadalcanal. (So no SB2Cs with 29400 drop alpha) She will have may similarities to sister ship Hornet,The purpose of bringing a 1942 fit Enterprise is similar to Belfast ’43. Enterprise ‘42’s purpose is to give new players, or players who do not own the original Enterprise, to obtain, and command this historic ship, in perhaps her most famous outfit. Of course, feedback is always appreciated in the comments. 

Now, lets get into the nitty gritty,

Enterprise ‘42

HP- 50,000

Torpedo Reduction- 28%

Speed- 32.5 Knots

Turning Radius- 1000m

Concealment- 14.2km

Note: Exactly the same hull as Hornet.

 

AP Dive Bombers: SBD-5 Dauntless

HP- 1890 per Aircraft

Speed- 122 knots

Speed, Boosted- 157 knots

Aircraft per Squadron- 8

Attacking Flight Size- 4

Aircraft on Deck- 16

Aircraft Preparation Time- 1/62s

Bombs in Payload- 1x Mk.1 1600lb Bomb

Bomb Alpha Damage- 3750 Per Bomb, 15000 Per Full Drop

Note: Larger bomb than on Hornet, while only doing slightly more damage, it has the more typical dive angle of other American carriers, and it has better penetration; getting through to citadels of tougher ships, like heavy cruisers, battleships, and carriers; while over-penning lighter ships.

 

Torpedo Bombers: TBD Devastator

HP- 1750 per Aircraft

Speed- 112 knots

Speed, Boosted- 147 knots

Aircraft per Squadron- 8

Attacking Flight Size- 4

Aircraft on Deck- 12

Aircraft Preparation Time- 1/62s

Payload- 1x Mk.7 Torpedo

Torpedo Alpha- 4667

Torpedo Speed- 35 knots

Torpedo Range- 3.0km

Torpedo Arming Distance- 344m

 

HE Dive Bombers: SBD-5

HP-  1890 per Aircraft

Speed- 122 knots

Speed, Boosted- 157 knots

Aircraft per Squadron- 8

Attacking Flight Size- 4

Aircraft on Deck- 16

Aircraft Preparation Time- 1/62s

Bombs in Payload- 2x Mk.17 350lb Depth Bomb

Bomb Alpha Damage- 3100

Note: Has the shallower dive angle of Hornet’s AP dive bombers, with the bombs falling quickly, and the squadron having a very short delay to set up a run, allowing strikes on small, fast targets like destroyers and submarines.

 

Fighter Patrol: F4F-4

Fighter Patrol Size- 8

Fighter Patrol Radius-  3.5

Duration- 90s

Charges Per Squadron- 3

Notes: Enterprise is famous for her fighters, escorting Hornet on the Doolittle Raid, through to the end of the war with her pulling a continuous combat air patrol for 174 hours over Iwo Jima.

While in this 1942 configuration she only has F4Fs, they are more numerous and have a quick reaction time, able to quickly intercept enemies in the patrol radius, at the cost of spotting, much like Bearn, however the consumable is only available on dive bombers, with torpedo bombers not getting a fighter patrol, emulating the destruction of the TBDs at Midway.

Editors Note: I hope WG goes with this, instead of throwing Enterprise (Original) in an auction, which will inevitably result in her being way overbid and going for $100+ along with being limited run.
