[[Ship:|]] — N/A promo premium Tier  N/A.

A small and reasonably fast aircraft carrier originally built as a submarine tender then subsequently converted into a carrier. Despite her small size, that did not allow her to carry a large air group, Zuiho was equipped with good torpedo protection and sufficiently powerful artillery for her type.

Player Opinion

Performance

Zuiho is almost twice as fast as Bogue and has better surface concealment, but is more easily detected by aircraft. She has the speed and maneuverability to flee and evade incoming fire, but can put up surprisingly stiff resistance with her AA and secondary batteries. However, its aircraft are easily shredded, and your plane reserve only contains enough to replace each squadron once.

Pros:

  • Reasonable AA and secondary battery capabilities.
  • Good concealment, speed and maneuverability.
  • Upgraded flight control loadout gives enemy ships a real pain when played correctly.
  • Decent armor, allowing for HE shells to be negated somewhat.
  • Ship speed almost twice as fast as its American counterpart Bogue.
  • Aircraft speed is superior to any planes Bogue has access to.
  • Plane reserve holds 2 more planes than Bogue.
  • 4 squadrons compared to Bogue’s maximum of 3 squadrons , allowing for better projection of airpower across more of the map at once.
  • A fighter squadron comes with every loadout.

Cons:

  • Aircraft are easily outclassed and shot down by American fighters, have low HP and easily get knocked out by surface AA.
  • Can only deploy one squadron of fighters.
  • Planes are still very fragile, and the increasing AA is a threat to be wary of.
  • Small reserve, can only replace the entire air group once, making it very hard to play.
  • Depends heavily on allied AA.

Research

Researching the flight control first to trade a dive bomber squadron for a second torpedo squadron is a solid plan, but you can't go wrong researching things in any order on this one. Just note that the rudder shift time only improves on the "C" hull. The 5 km AA remains the same on all three hulls, while the 3 km AA increases considerably with each.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Zuiho are as follows: The recommended upgrades for ' are as follows:

Upgrade Slot 3 is the 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, as Bogue is capable of having up to 7 fighters in the air at once. Otherwise, the Flight Control Modification 1 Accelerates aircraft servicing and increases the maximum number of aircraft on deck.  Does not work with tactical squadrons.: -5% aircraft restoration time / +2 carrier deck places available. helps players land and launch '`s multiple flight squadrons.

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 chances of being detected by the enemy.

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.). However, the latter two signal flags are not highly recommended if the player wishes to conserve the signals for later tiers.

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