Special

Indomitable — British special premium 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 additional hanger and so could carry more aircraft.

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 Hidden Menace captain skill and Concealment System Modification 1, she can reach 10km of sea detection range, allowing her to reposition much more easily and stay closer to the battle. 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.

Pros:

  • Best plane speed among tier 8 CVs, even better than Graf Zeppelin's Ta-152s
  • Planes have a very high base healthpool, especially the bombers
  • Better ship concealment than techtree counterpart Implacable
  • Each squadron carries four Patrol FighterWhile active, a group of fighter planes circles a location spotting and engaging enemy aircraft. consumables
  • The only carrier in the game that still has the "slingshot drop" mechanic

Cons:

  • No torpedo bombers
  • Very long plane restoration time
  • Even at full capacity, squadrons are very small
  • While fast, the planes lack maneuverability
  • Rockets and bombs struggle to damage heavily armored targets
  • Heavily reliant on damage over time via fires
  • The carrier itself is rather slow

Research

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

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

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

Consumables

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

Indomitable equips the following consumables:

  • Update 0.8.1.1:
    • Increased the accuracy of bombers and rocket attack aircraft. The accuracy of these squadrons remained at the same level, although the number of aircraft in the attacking flight and, accordingly, the number of bombs dropped were previously changed, as a result of which they were less accurate.
  • Mar 29, 2019:
    • Charges of the Patrol fighters consumable increased from 3 to 4 for all aircraft types.
    • Starting number of planes on the deck was increased: from 9 to 12 for attack aircraft; from 6 to 8 for bombers.
    • Bombers now use the same bombs as Implacable. (stats not available, many changes happened around this time).
  • Update 0.8.2:
    • Fixed position of aircraft on deck.
    • Fixed a bug where the 113 mm guns were not taken into account in the far zone of AA defenses.
  • Apr 10, 2019:
    • Attack aircraft now use the same rockets as Audacious.
  • Apr 19, 2019:
    • Attack aircraft's aiming ellipse size increased:
      • Inner ellipse size increased by 24%.
      • Outer ellipse size increased by 42%.
    • Amount of rockets landing in the inner ellipse decreased from 75% to 50%.
  • May 16, 2019:
    • Maximum rocket damage decreased from 2,350 to 2,100.
  • May 27, 2019:
    • Time between attacks increased for attack aircraft from 0 to 1.5 s.
  • Dec 10, 2019:
    • The speed of bombers will return to cruising speed more slowly after using engine boost, to make aiming easier.
  • Update 0.8.11:
    • During the New Year 2020, became available for purchase in the Premium store.
