?The Hakuryu (白竜, "White Dragon") is based off of Project G15 "Taiho-Kai," an improvement upon the Taiho class. The G15 was designed to correct many faults found in the Taiho after launch, as well as to improve survivability and airgroup size. Seven G15s were planned to be laid down between 1944 and 1945, with a completion date around 1947 to 1948. The G15 class was cancelled in 1943 to refocus resources on the smaller, cheaper G18 class.+ 
 +The Hakuryu (白竜, "White Dragon") is based off of Project G15 "Taiho-Kai," an attempt by Japanese designers to create a successor to the flawed Taiho class. She was to be better armed, better protected, carry a larger airgroup and would've corrected the numerous flaws found in her predecessor's design. Seven of the class were planned to be laid down between 1944 and 1945 which would've been completed between 1947 and 1948. The project was suspended after the Battle of Midway in order to focus construction efforts on the smaller Unryu class and finally cancelled in August 1943 in order to focus resources on the smaller and cheaper G15 class.
  
 The name "Hakuryu" was given to the class by Wargaming in accordance with the IJN tradition to name aircraft carriers after birds or mythological creatures. The name "Hakuryu" was given to the class by Wargaming in accordance with the IJN tradition to name aircraft carriers after birds or mythological creatures.

Player Opinion

Performance

Rightly dubbed as the "Sky Hammer" due to the notion that she can have a lot of squadrons in the air at any given time, the Hakuryu is a battleship's worst nightmare, with special mention to the Yamato which was sunk by aircraft during her very last sortie, as she can field a large number of squadrons, one particular loadout having six strike aircraft at her disposal, to destroy any capital ship or a standard ship in the water. The cost of having a large number of squadrons in the air however is the fact that each squadron has a small air wing than their US counterparts and can be easily destroyed by a very solid AA screen or good fighters that can intercept the planes. The carrier is no slouch when it comes to visibility as being large as she is, she has a rather reasonable concealment value, better than her counterpart the Midway.

Pros:

  • Can put several squadrons into the air at any given time, especially strike aircraft
  • Carrier itself has good concealment values
  • Deck does not burn easily
  • A daunting thing to be wary of in high tier matches
  • Fighters are rather sound at their tier

Cons:

  • Squadron has a small air wing which makes it a bit easy to have fighters intercept them
  • Fighters are still swamped by US fighters in dogfights
