?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.

Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Highest ship speed among Tier 10 aircraft carriers
  • Very thick flight deck armor, preventing overmatch from even the largest caliber BB guns
  • All plane types are reasonably fast
  • Very powerful AP bombs, excellent against virtually all cruisers and battleships
  • Highest torpedo damage among all Tier 10 aircraft carriers
  • A full torpedo bomber squadron can attack a target as many as six times in a row
  • Good concealment

Cons:

  • Second lowest plane health among Tier 10 aircraft carriers after German carrier, Manfred von Richthofen.
  • AA defenses are strong, but inferior compared to American counterpart Midway
  • Weak hull armor and low hitpoint pool, Hakuryu is a fragile ship
  • Attack aircraft rockets have fairly low penetration and might struggle to damage heavily armored ships
  • Torpedo bombers drop only two torpedoes per attack run
  • AP bombs are mostly useless against destroyers

Research

Like other Tier 10 aircraft carriers, Hakuryu does not come elite on purchase. Players are encouraged to prioritize researching dive bombers and torpedo bombers, and leave the attack aircraft for last.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

Commander Skills

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 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.
