Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Very powerful alpha strike power with torpedo bombers.
  • Much better concealment than her American counterpart.
  • AA is quite good on the second hull.

Research

This is a suggested research path:

  1. Type 9 mod. 2 or mod. 3 Flight Control
  2. Mitsubishi A7M1 fighters
  3. Aichi B7A2 torpedo bombers
  4. Aichi B7A2 dive bombers
  5. Hull (B)
Researching mod. 2 or mod. 3 Flight Control depends on the player's preference.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for ' are as follows:

Upgrade Slot 3 is the 1st main choice of upgrades with '. For players looking to improve their fighter's capabilities, Air Groups Modification 2 (Increases HP of the aircraft carrier's planes: +7.5% aircraft HP.) is highly recommended, especially when using the Type 9 mod. 3 flight control system. Otherwise, the Flight Control Modification 1 (Accelerates aircraft servicing and increases the maximum number of aircraft on deck: -5% aircraft restoration time / +2 carrier deck places available.) helps players land and launch '’s multiple flight squadrons, as ' has seven separate plane squadrons to manage.

Upgrade Slot 5 offers players Concealment System Modification 1 (Reduces the detectability range of the ship and aircraft carrier's squadrons: -10% to detectability radius. / +5% to the dispersion of enemy shells fired at your ship.), which stacks with Concealment Expert and camouflage to bring '’s surface detection down to a small range of 10.7 km.

Upgrade Slot 6 is the 2nd main choice of upgrades with '. Due to the common presence of multiple battleships and cruisers with very high AA power, Template:Air Groups Modification 3 is highly recommended to make sure '’s planes will survive their trip to and from their target. If survivability isn't the player's foremost preference, Flight Control Modification 2 (Increases cruising speed of the aircraft carrier's squadrons: +5% cruising speed.) is viable, increasing the speed gap between '’s and Essex’s planes, allowing the smaller Japanese squadrons to outrun their American counterparts.

Commander Skills

Consumables

' equips the following consumables:

Camouflage

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

Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip ' with Type 19 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.

Signals

As a carrier, ' can only mount at most four signals at a time and 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.).

Note: Use of the Juliet Charlie signal makes detonation impossible.
