Battle Levels

Indomitable — British Tier VIII aircraft сarrier.

The last ship from the Illustrious-class carriers, which represented a revolutionary breakthrough in the development of aircraft carriers thanks to the introduction of an armored flight deck. In contrast to the lead ship, she had an increased capacity and could carry more aircraft.

Player Opinion


Indomitable joins the Royal Navy in World of Warships as its first premium Tier VIII aircraft carrier, bringing with her a very unique playstyle. Her most striking difference from Implacable, her tech tree counterpart, is a lack of torpedo bombers, forcing Indomitable captains to double down on her attack aircraft and level bombers. As a result, Indomitable is a very situational aircraft carrier, and must choose her targets carefully.

Indomitable’s attack aircraft have several differences with Implacable’s. While her payloads deal less total damage, Indomitable’s attack aircraft are considerably faster, cruising at a base speed of 188 knots and 228 knots with boost, allowing her to react much more quickly to opportunities and strike destroyers. Furthermore, the enhanced speed allows Indomitable to offset her increased plane regeneration time: 115 seconds without upgrades or captain skills.

Indomitable’s level bombers also have tweaked parameters. Indomitable’s level bombers have only two sets of two planes per attack flight and less bombs per payload, but an abnormally high speed for bombers of her tier: 182 knots cruising and up to 217 knots with boost. Furthermore, Indomitable’s level bombers have a whopping 2590 base HP, higher than even Audacious’ of 2340. This allows Indomitable to excel at hit-and-run strikes, but against all but low AA targets, she struggles to get two complete strikes off.

At 13.5km base detection range, Indomitable is also stealthier than her tech tree equivalent. With the Concealment Expert captain skill and camouflage, she can reach 11.79km of detection range, allowing her to reposition much more easily even without Concealment System Modification 1. Additionally, each of Indomitable’s plane types carry 4 charges of the Patrol Fighters consumable, decreasing the number of times squadron commanders may find themselves out of fighters on a specific plane type.


  • Great plane speed, similar to Graf Zeppelin’s torpedo bombers and AP dive bombers
  • Ludicrously high HP for the level bombers
  • Better hull concealment than Implacable
  • More Patrol Fighter consumables per plane type than standard carriers


  • Lack of torpedo bombers
  • Slightly weaker payload than Implacable
  • High plane regeneration times
  • Only two sets of two planes per run on the level bombers, making two full strikes a rarity
  • 32mm pen bombs struggle to deal consistent damage to well-armored battleships


As a premium ship, Indomitable doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration


The recommended upgrades for Indomitable are as follows:

Upgrade Slot 5 offers Flight Control Modification 1, which will significantly decrease the long plane regeneration time and increase the number of planes on deck. Because Indomitable has fairly good base concealment, Concealment Modification 1 is not as vital, especially with commander skill Concealment Expert. However, captains seeking to maximize stealth may consider using Concealment Modification 1.

Commander Skills

After taking Air Supremacy and Improved Engines, captains have several choices on the order the path they may wish to take. Survivability Expert and Aircraft Armor are both must-haves to bolster her planes’ already high survivability, but Demolition Expert and Concealment Expert can be taken in order of preference. With a fully fledged 19 point captain, Improved Engine Boost, Last Gasp, and Direction Center for Fighters are Quality-of-Life improvements.


Like other aircraft carriers, the captain of Indomitable does not control the ship's consumables.

Indomitable equips the following consumables:

Indomitable's aircraft can equip the following consumables: Attack Aircraft:

Carpet Bombers:


As a premium aircraft carrier, Indomitable comes with Type 10 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her service cost, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
