Player Opinion

Performance

Ark Royal is unique in that it is a tier VI ship carrying tier IV and V aircraft into battles with ships up to tier VIII. The developers have done an excellent job balancing the tier disparity through fast plane restoration time, large squadron and attack element sizes. The slow speed of aircraft and the fast plane restoration time make it possible to continuously fly torpedo and dive bomber squadrons throughout a match for maximum damage potential. This leaves the fighters in reserve for late game threats to the carrier itself. The CV player moving up from tier IV will find the planes of the Ark Royal familiar and should ease the transition to tier VI play. With experience, the Ark Royal can perform competitively against tier VIII ships.


Information on the website: Armada: Ark Royal

Comparison to other tier VI CVs: NA server: Ark Royal Stats

Pros:

  • Torpedo bombers drop three torpedoes per attack run, aim quickly, and have a converging drop pattern
  • Dive bombers drop a large number of bombs per attack run, good at starting fires and crippling destroyers
  • Quick plane restoration time

Cons:

  • The torpedo and dive bombers have very poor speed and durability
  • All plane types lack agility and have a very large turn radius
  • Bombs have very poor penetration
  • Fairly ineffective rockets with poor damage
  • Enormous ship turn radius
