The USS Enterprise was a Yorktown class aircraft carrier by the end of the war she was the only Yorktown class left as the Yorktown and Horrent both sunk in 1942. The Enterprise did get a refit With more AA and other features. (If you want to learn more go and watch "Battle 360, USS Enterprise" ep.6 The Enterprise was the most decorated ship of the war. She was so famous that she was almost turned into a museum but they did not get enough money and she was scraped in the 50s. (Which I was so mad at when I herd that I want on about it for days and still have not come to gripes with it.) But she would make a good Premium ship at tier 7 or 8 I say in the $25-$35 range. And It would be nice to have more than 1 brace of carrier line for the US navy. What do you think, tell me in the polls and War Gaming please tell me if you plan to do this in the comments. :)

Here in Charleston SC we have the U.S.S. YORKTOWN as a museum ship in our Harbor.

 

Your Yorktown was the second of that name to fight in the war. The first sank, and the name got passed to a new ship.

It honestly should be in... they are putting ships like the Warspite and Tirpitz in... why not one of the best known carriers of the war.

They are putting the Warspite back in? I know they removed it from store, and I started the game after those dates...

It would be great ship to have. There have been a lot of ships to carry that name and it would be great to see it in game. Make it so!!

All in good time, I'm sure :)  

 

Although as far as price goes, I can't see them offering her at less than Tier VIII, so unfortunately I doubt they would price her in the 'easily affordable' range.  :\

 

As aircraft carriers, the Yorktowns were purpose-built and more efficient than the Lexingtons, so I doubt any Yorktown class carrier would be at a lower tier.  VIII seems perfect - just under the Essex and on par with Lexington.

 

About the only thing I wonder whether they'd model about Enterprise and her sister ships is their phenomenal damage control and overall resilience.  Yorktown and Hornet took absolutely horrific beatings before they went down, you'd think they were battleships from the sheer quantity of damage they soaked up before going under.  Yorktown steamed into her last battle at Midway already nursing serious battle damage from Coral Sea and sporting emergency patch jobs.  Even so, she still took three separate strikes during the battle to kill.  Hornet was hit hard at Santa Cruz and eventually declared a loss - but defiantly refused scuttling.  What do you say about a carrier that's been written off and still requires another dozen torpedoes and hundreds of shells to put her out of her misery, even after being abandoned with no damage control parties on board?  For carriers that weren't built with armored flight decks or converted from battlecruisers or battleships, they were disturbingly durable even considering that most of the credit belongs to forward-thinking damage control.


To say nothing of Enterprise herself, of course.  They didn't call her the Grey Ghost for nothing (although the IJN experience with carriers up to this point may have affected their impressions.  From their own vantage point, it's possible that by then they figured that if a carrier is hit even once, there's a good chance it's done for, and their own experiences in this regard were nothing short of tragic.  It wouldn't be surprising for them to think that Enterprise's persistence was nothing short of terrifying.)

 

I don't expect them to be quite that tough in-game.  Balance is still important.  But there are times I wonder whether the absence of the Yorktowns from this game for the moment isn't so much about "these ships aren't important enough to include", but more of a "how do we do this right?  People have legendary expectations for these."

not to mention .... Enterprise  name was had by 8 different ships over the life of the  US navy . The first was a captured frigget  during the revolution years . giving the designation of " the 8th wonder of the world " . She was the 1st to experiment and tasked to study " Night Flying " of which became normal practice for all . She escorted Hornet for the Dolittle Raid . Participated in more battles then any other ship in the navy during WWII .

I too wondered why Enterprise is not in the game .

Don't feel sad about the ultimate fate of the Enterprise. Her crew was trained and equipped to defend the nation. The Enterprise was built and fitted to defend the nation. Both ship and crew served with great courage. When it was all over both ship and crew returned to civilian life. The story of the Grey Ghost mirrored her crew's story.
