Hakuryū — Japanese Tier X aircraft сarrier.

An aircraft carrier designed to be an enlarged and enhanced version of the Taiho class. Hakuryu was superior to her predecessor in size, armor and artillery power. Owing to an increased hangar, she could carry the largest air group among all Japanese aircraft carriers.

Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Highest ship speed among Tier 10 aircraft carriers
  • Very thick flight deck armor, preventing overmatch from even the largest caliber BB guns
  • All plane types are reasonably fast
  • Very powerful AP bombs, excellent against virtually all cruisers and battleships
  • Highest torpedo damage and speed among Tier 10 aircraft carriers
  • A full torpedo bomber squadron can attack a target as many as six times in a row
  • Good concealment

Cons:

  • Lowest plane health among Tier 10 aircraft carriers
  • AA defenses are strong, but inferior compared to American counterpart Midway
  • Weak hull armor and low hitpoint pool, Hakuryu is a fragile ship
  • Attack aircraft rockets have fairly low penetration and might struggle to damage heavily armored ships
  • Torpedo bombers drop only two torpedoes per attack run
  • AP bombs are mostly useless against destroyers

Research

Like other Tier 10 aircraft carriers, Hakuryu does not come elite on purchase. Players are encouraged to prioritize researching dive bombers and torpedo bombers, and leave the attack aircraft for last.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

Commander Skills

Hakuryū uses the standard Japanese carrier captain skill setup.

Consumables

Hakuryū can equip the following consumables:

All aircraft carrier consumables are automatically activated.

Attack Aircraft:

Torpedo Bombers:

Bombers:

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 1 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce detectability range.

Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip Hakuryū with Type 20 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces cost of post-battle service, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

Alternative space camo is available during Halloween.

Signals

As a carrier, Hakuryū has no risk of detonating. Players should mount Equal Speed Charlie London (+50% XP earned for the battle.), Zulu Hotel (+50% Commander XP earned for the battle.), and, for the last two: November Echo Setteseven (+5% continuous damage by all AA guns, +5% damage per second within the explosion radius of shells fired from medium- and long-range AA defenses.) and Juliet Whiskey Unaone (+15% chance of causing flooding. / +5% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.).
