Implacable — British Tier VIII aircraft сarrier.

The most advanced British aircraft carrier of World War II. She was inferior to her foreign counterparts of comparable dimensions in terms of the number of aircraft her air group comprised, but boasted a conceptual advantage that enhanced the ship's survivability—an armored flight deck.

Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Attack aircraft are extremely effective against destroyers with their low speed and tighter turn. Despite the smaller size of British flights and squadrons, they are on par with American attack aircraft in terms of their strike capability.
  • Bombers have the ability to set multiple fires in one pass thanks to their drop pattern.
  • Torpedo bombers are easy to maneuver and to aim with, granting the possibility to attack multiple times the same target.
  • Torpedos have a short arming time.
  • Strong AA suite, making her almost immune to air attack.
  • With the exception of her sister-ship Indomitable, she's the only tier VIII aircraft carrier with an armored deck. Shells aimed at the deck are likely to shatter or bounce providing a good resistance when targeted from long range.

Cons:

  • Citadel is located well above the waterline, taking massive damage when showing the side.
  • Bombers have low penetration, making them extremely reliant to fires when attacking battleships.
  • Attack aircraft are painfully slow.
  • Bad plane recovery time, being second only to Saipan.
