Audacious — British Tier X aircraft сarrier.

This heavy aircraft carrier project, designed at the end of World War II, represented a further development of the Implacable class. Her large dimensions allowed her to overcome the major drawback of her predecessors—the relatively small number of airplanes she could carry onboard. The aircraft carriers initially laid down as the Audacious class were completed much later, in the 1950s, with a significantly modified design.

Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Highest plane healthpool in the game
  • All planes have a tight turn radius and quick aimtime
  • The attack aircraft drop a whopping 42 rockets per attack run, ideal to hunt destroyers
  • Bombs have a high fire chance and good penetration, and are dropped in large amounts at 18 per drop
  • Very good at starting fires with both rockets and bombs
  • Decent ship concealment, turn radius and rudder shift time
  • Thickly armored flight deck, resilient against long range fire, rockets and bombs

Cons:

  • Attack aircraft are fairly slow, and are slower than the bombers
  • Rockets have very low penetration
  • Bombs lose a lot of effectiveness against heavily armored ships such as Kremlin
  • Heavily reliant on damage over time effects (fires and floods)
  • Fairly long plane restoration time
  • Underwhelming AA suite for a Tier 10 aircraft carrier
