Launches a single fighter from the ship's catapult. It is available on Tier IV and higher Japanese cruisers, Tier V-VIII British cruisers, Tier V and higher American cruisers, and Tier VI and higher German cruisers. It is also available to all battleships Tier VII and higher. Note that some ships require a hull upgrade before this consumable becomes available. Ships with catapult-launched aircraft usually must choose between equipping either a Catapult Fighter or a Spotting Aircraft (While active, a spotter plane circles the ship enhancing main battery firing range.).

Once launched, a Catapult Fighter will orbit around the ship and intercept enemy planes. It is rather ineffective alone, and is often shot down by fighters or the rear gunners of bombers. However, combined with the Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) consumable it can wreak havoc on enemy planes. Most importantly, it slows down enemy planes, holding fighters in place and reducing torpedo and dive bomber accuracy. Since it has an orbital path, it can potentially spot incoming torpedoes if it happens to fly over them. It may also detect concealed enemy ships that come within its visual range.

Note: Catapult Fighter can be exchanged for either Spotting Aircraft (While active, a spotter plane circles the ship enhancing main battery firing range.) or Surveillance Radar (While active, detects all enemy ships within the specified radius, disregarding obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) (on eligible ships).
