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.
