?''Hakuryu'' is a battleship's worst nightmare. She can field a large number of squadrons to destroy any ship in the water, with up to five strike squadrons at her disposal. However, there is a cost of having so many squadrons: each squadron has a smaller number of planes than their American counterparts which means they can be easily destroyed by a solid AA screen or by intercepting fighters. Despite being large as she is, ''Hakuryu'' has a rather reasonable concealment value and top speed, better than her American counterpart, ''[[Midway]].+

?Researching the flight control mods is listed last due to the fact that the anti-air at this tier is so powerful and managing multiple squads is the most difficult at this tier. Additionally, the mod. 2 Flight Control only adds one extra dive bomber squadron to the player's loadout, which may not be very helpful at all and will reduce the ratio of allocated torpedo bombers. Additionally, researching mod. 2 or mod. 3 Flight Control depends on the player's preference.

?For AA defense, ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' has medium-caliber 100mm guns that benefit greatly from Manual Fire Control for AA Armament. [[Ship:Commander#Basic_Firing_Training|Basic Firing Training]] is also a good choice to boost all AA guns' DPS by 20%. And as ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' is a Tier IX carrier, the player has access to the special Japanese carrier version of {{Defensive AA Fire}}, which lasts for two minutes and increases the ship's AA DPS by a factor of '''1.75'''. Coupled with '''Basic Firing Training''' and [[Ship:Commander#Manual_Fire_Control_for_AA_Armament|Manual Fire Control for AA Armament]], the player can significantly increase the ship's AA DPS to shoot down enemy planes effectively and greatly reduce the damage taken from an enemy carrier's attack.+

?Any skills that are related to an enemy vessel firing on your carrier are not useful, as the cost-benefit of investing in survivability skills is not worth the minimal benefit they offer. ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' is large and unarmored, and will not survive an attack by any ship larger than a destroyer. ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' captains must position their ship near friendlies and far back from the enemy fleet.

Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Excellent concealment.
  • Does not catch fire easily.
  • Faster than Midway and easier to dodge enemy fire.
  • Thin armor makes most AP shells overpenetrate for minimal damage.

Cons:

  • Slightly worse AA than Midway, but still plenty to fend off smaller enemy air strikes.
  • Weaker armor than that of Midway makes Hakuryu less viable in open warfare.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

Upgrade Slot 5 offers players Concealment System Modification 1 (Reduces the detectability range of the ship and aircraft carrier's squadrons: -10% to detectability radius. / +5% to the dispersion of enemy shells fired at your ship.), which stacks with Concealment Expert and camouflage to bring Hakuryū’s surface detection down to a small range of 11.5 km.

Commander Skills

Hakuryū uses the standard Japanese carrier captain skill setup.

Consumables

Hakuryū can equip the following consumables:

All aircraft carrier consumables are automatically activated.

Attack Aircraft:

Torpedo Bombers:

Bombers:

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 1 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce detectability range.

Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip Hakuryū with Type 20 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces cost of post-battle service, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

Alternative space camo is available during Halloween.

Signals

As a carrier, Hakuryū can only mount at most four signals at a time and has no risk of detonating. Players should mount Equal Speed Charlie London (+50% XP earned for the battle.), Zulu Hotel (+50% Commander XP earned for the battle.), and, for the last two: November Echo Setteseven (+5% continuous damage by all AA guns, +5% damage per second within the explosion radius of shells fired from medium- and long-range AA defenses.) and Juliet Whiskey Unaone (+15% chance of causing flooding. / +5% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.).

Note: Use of the Juliet Charlie signal makes detonation impossible.
