Catapult Fighter Data

Catapult Fighter Data

Jump to: navigation, search

When activated, the consumable deploys a group of one to four fighters (two to five with the Direction Center for Fighters skill) from the ship's catapult.

Once launched, the fighter group will orbit around the ship or designated area at a radius of 3 km and automatically intercept nearby enemy planes. By itself it is fairly effective at shooting some down. However, shipboard AA defenses, particularly when bolstered by Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.), and a fighter group can wreak havoc. When not engaged, the fighter group may detect concealed enemy ships that come within its visual range. See the Aircraft article for more information.

The Fighter consumable is available on Tier V and higher American cruisers, Tier III Katori and Tier V and higher Japanese cruisers, Tier V-VIII British cruisers and RAN Perth, Tier VI and higher German cruisers, Tiers IV-IX French cruisers, many battleships Tier VI and higher.

Note that some ships require a hull upgrade before this consumable becomes available. Ships with a catapult often must choose between equipping either a Catapult Fighter or a Spotting Aircraft (While active, a spotter plane circles the ship enhancing main battery firing range.). Note also that Surveillance Radar (While active, detects all enemy ships within the specified radius, disregarding obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) is an option on some cruisers instead of aircraft.
