Why there are many upgrades and skills to enhance fighter but not torp bombers

At high tier (T6 or above) It is so hard for a torp bomber to drop a bomb!

Huh? Anyway... there's a skill that add more planes, another skills that improve your torp/dive bombers' rear gunners, and yet another one that help with your torpedo bombers.

Oh, I actually forgot when I posted earlier, but I have a full list of all the CV-relevant commander skills here:

 

  •  Expert Rear Gunner (Aircraft, Level One)
    • +10% to efficiency of self-defence armament for aircraft with rear gunners
      • Are any fighters affected by this?
      • Does this include all attack aircraft or only certain models?
  •  Torpedo Armament Expertise (Secondary Armament, Level Two)
    • -10% to servicing time of torpedo bombers
  •  Aircraft Servicing Expert (Aircraft, Level Four)
    • +5% to aircraft survivability
    • -10% to servicing time of all aircraft
  •  Air Supremacy (Aircraft, Level Five)
    • +1 fighter per squadron
    • +1 bomber per squadron
      • Does not include torpedo bomber squadrons.

 

Those are the commander skills which affect bombers.

Torpedo bombers, drop Torpedoes, and Dive bombers drop bombers. (Yes, both are bombs, but please try and by clear about which ones you are talking about.

 

Special_Kay - Only Torp bombers have rear guns I believe.

but there aren't any modification for torp and dive bomber?

Well, in that thread I linked when I was writing this:

Perhaps the Lexington... I can't tell for sure, but it looks like the Grumman TBF Avenger uses a rear gunner, and the Douglas SBD-5 does, though I can't find information for the SBD-2 at a glance.

 

I was having a hard time finding out exactly which planes have rear gunners. Apparently none of the Midway's planes do. So if you've got solid information and exactly what does and doesn't, I'd love to have it.

Because BB players already QQ too much about Torpedo Bombers, if more upgrades buffed TBs their tears would flood the whole forum.

Torpedo serving time is useless -- the bottleneck is how fast planes can take off and land. Rear gunner is often useless for IJN.

 

It would be nice if there were more skills/modules that would affect TBs in a useful way...

Learn to dodge. Or play a CV, like I did, to learn the limitations so I can defend better against them in my BB.

Then don't learn, keep crying, and never improve. There's so many threads about dodging topredos. I read them. Practiced. Now? I hardly ever get hit by torps. I'll wait for your next excuse.
