[[Ship:|]] — N/A promo premium Tier  N/A.

A low-speed escort aircraft carrier built from a transport ship. Due to her modest size, the ship carried a relatively small air group. Soon after being commissioned, the aircraft carrier was rearmed with dual-purpose artillery and received reinforced AA defenses.

Player Opinion

Performance

  • Stock (1-1-1): As of 0.6.14 The Bogue only has once choice of plane loadouts. While there are two upgrades of Fighters available, the Torpedo Bombers and Dive Bombers are only available as stock modules.

Right from the start, the Bogue features a full complement of monoplane aircraft. They are faster, can take more of a beating, and carry heavier ordnance than the aircraft on the Langley. However, her hangar size is even smaller than that of the Langley, and she cannot afford to lose many planes.

Just like the Langley, she is very slow and unarmored, and will almost certainly be sunk in short order if engaged by enemy ships. If a flank is collapsing, she must move away far in advance.

Pros:

  • Strong AA.
  • Fighters have virtually unlimited ammunition, and the large squadrons easily crush others of her tier or lower.
  • Very easy to manage.
  • Small compact size, making her a deceptive target.

Cons:

  • Glacially slow at 16.5 knots, only being 1.5 knots faster than Langley at the cost of an even slower acceleration.
  • Poor rudder-shift time, secondaries, and armor will get her sunk quickly if caught in the open.
  • Few reserve planes---in fact, less than Langley has and insufficient to renew a full squad.
  • Low squadron count limits map presence.
  • Inability to strafe is a massive disadvantage when placed in double-carrier matches with Tier VI carriers.

Research

  • Research the fighters first, as this will enhance your ability to bully the opposing carrier.
  • Next, B hull for the extra 4 planes in the hangar and assorted other benefits.
  • Finally, the alternative loadouts if you prefer them.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for ' are as follows:

Commander Skills

Due to ' being the next slowest ship in the game at 16kts, it is also unable to outrun any ship that may be chasing it - therefore Emergency Takeoff again over Basic Firing Training. Furthermore, due to Zuiho having Tier VI fighters, again, Dogfighting Expert is a very good skill to utilize against Zuiho.

ATTENTION

  • As of Update 0.6.3, this carrier can no longer use manual / Alt function attack.
  • Due to dive bombers having a huge chance of causing fires, Demolition Expert is not a recommended skill.

Consumables

As a carrier at Tier V, ' has access to only Damage Control Party.

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 1 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce the chance of being detected.

Signals

As a carrier, ' can only mount at most four signals at a time and has no risk of detonating. Players should mount Equal Speed Charlie London (for faster XP grinding / increased XP gain per battle), Zulu Hotel (when coupled with Equal Speed Charlie London greatly helps increase commander (re)training), November Echo Setteseven (for better bomber self-defense against fighters and increased AA DPS), and Juliet Whiskey Unaone (to have a better chance at causing flooding and dealing damage via flooding). Players can also choose to equip the Dragon Flag for faster commander (re)training.
