 +The Furious is a direct upgrade from the Tier IV carrier Hermes with better torpedoes and bombs. Her torpedo bombers drop two torpedoes and bombers drop more and heavier bombs penetrating up to 32mm of armor. The torpedo bomber still handle well allowing easy maneuvering for drops from both sides of the target. Also the torpedo guides narrow down much more than USN or IJN torpedo bombers. This allows the player to hit enemy ships from different angles much more easily. Although the torpedo damage is the lowest of all tier VI carriers (Ryujo : 6500, Ranger : 5567, Furious : 5200) with slow torpedoes as the Americans, the high maneuverability of planes and good aiming guide will help players of this ship to achieve just as much as other tier VI carriers.
 +<br /> The HE bombers are also excellent fire starters, and will light up as many as 3 fires when dropped precisely. As the bombs take time to fall, players need to lead like as if they were leading a torpedo drop. The momentum of the enemy ship will carry it through the drop zone, leading to a successful drop. However, as the drop zone doesn't tighten as much as American HE bombs, players will have difficult time using this for destroyer hunting.<br /> The attack aircraft is excellent for destroyer hunting as British rockets fly very fast and hit the target almost instantly as it drops. The aiming circle arm very fast, which is very useful when the player unwittingly finds a destroyer in its path.

 ===History=== ===History===
? +HMS ''Furious'' was a modified ''Courageous''-class battlecruiser built for the Royal Navy (RN) during the First World War. Designed to support the Baltic Project championed by the First Sea Lord of the Admiralty, Lord Fisher, the ship was very lightly armoured and designed to be armed with only two heavy guns (18-inch), one forward and one aft, plus a number of lesser guns. Furious was modified and became an aircraft carrier while under construction. Her forward turret was removed and a flight deck was added in its place, such that aircraft had to maneuver around the superstructure to land. Later in the war, the ship had her rear turret removed and a second flight deck installed aft of the superstructure, but this was less than satisfactory due to air turbulence. ''Furious'' was briefly laid up after the war before she was reconstructed with a full-length flight deck in the early 1920s. <br />
 +<br />
 +After her conversion, ''Furious'' was used extensively for trials of naval aircraft and later as a training carrier once the new armoured carriers like ''Ark Royal'' entered service in the late 1930s. During the early months of the Second World War the carrier spent her time hunting for German raiders in the North Atlantic and escorting convoys. This changed dramatically during the Norwegian Campaign in early 1940 when her aircraft provided air support to British troops ashore in addition to attacking German shipping. The first of what would be a large number of aircraft ferry missions was made by the carrier during the campaign. After the withdrawal of British troops in May, ''Furious'' made several anti-shipping strikes in Norway with little result before beginning a steady routine of ferrying aircraft for the Royal Air Force. <br />
 +<br />
 +At first ''Furious'' made several trips to West Africa, but she began to ferry aircraft to Gibraltar in 1941. An unsuccessful attack on German-occupied ports on the Arctic Ocean interrupted the ferry missions in mid-1941. ''Furious'' was given a lengthy refit in the United States and spent a few months training after her return in April 1942. She made several more ferry trips in mid-1942 before her aircraft attacked airfields in Vichy French Algeria as part of the opening stages of Operation Torch in November 1942. The ship remained in the Mediterranean until February 1943 when she was transferred to the Home Fleet. <br />
 +<br />
 +''Furious'' spent most of 1943 training, but made a number of attacks on the German battleship ''[[Tirpitz]]'' and other targets in Norway during the first half of 1944. By September 1944, the ship was showing her age and she was placed in reserve. ''Furious'' was decommissioned in April 1945, but was not sold for scrap until 1948.

Furious — British Tier VI aircraft сarrier.

A relatively large warship that was initially laid down as a battlecruiser, before being refitted into a full-fledged aircraft carrier in several steps. The ship was finally commissioned by the Navy in 1925, and held the status of being the fastest carrier at that time.

Player Opinion

Performance

The Furious is a direct upgrade from the Tier IV carrier Hermes with better torpedoes and bombs. Her torpedo bombers drop two torpedoes and bombers drop more and heavier bombs penetrating up to 32mm of armor. The torpedo bomber still handle well allowing easy maneuvering for drops from both sides of the target. Also the torpedo guides narrow down much more than USN or IJN torpedo bombers. This allows the player to hit enemy ships from different angles much more easily. Although the torpedo damage is the lowest of all tier VI carriers (Ryujo : 6500, Ranger : 5567, Furious : 5200) with slow torpedoes as the Americans, the high maneuverability of planes and good aiming guide will help players of this ship to achieve just as much as other tier VI carriers.


The HE bombers are also excellent fire starters, and will light up as many as 3 fires when dropped precisely. As the bombs take time to fall, players need to lead like as if they were leading a torpedo drop. The momentum of the enemy ship will carry it through the drop zone, leading to a successful drop. However, as the drop zone doesn't tighten as much as American HE bombs, players will have difficult time using this for destroyer hunting.
The attack aircraft is excellent for destroyer hunting as British rockets fly very fast and hit the target almost instantly as it drops. The aiming circle arm very fast, which is very useful when the player unwittingly finds a destroyer in its path.

Pros:

  • Highest plane HP of the three nations
  • Able to 'Carpet-bomb' a large area
  • Good turning circles of torpedo bombers
  • Good aiming guide for torpedo bombers

Cons:

  • Slowest attack planes
  • Lowest maximum damage of bombs
  • Lowest torpedo damage
  • Few attempts available for Bombers.
