 ===History=== ===History===
?HMS ''Implacable'' was an ''Implacable''-class aircraft carrier built for the Royal Navy during World War II. Upon completion in 1944, she was initially assigned to the Home Fleet and attacked targets in Norway for the rest of the year. She was subsequently assigned to the British Pacific Fleet (BPF) where she attacked the Japanese naval base at Truk and targets in the Japanese Home Islands in 1945. The ship was used to repatriate liberated Allied prisoners of war (PoWs) and soldiers after the Japanese surrender, for the rest of the year. ''Implacable'' returned home in 1946 and became the Home Fleet's deck-landing training carrier, a role that lasted until 1950. She briefly served as flagship of the Home Fleet in 1950. During this time she participated in many exercises and made a number of port visits in Western Europe. She was placed in reserve in 1950 and converted into a training ship in 1952, and served as flagship of the Home Fleet Training Squadron. The ship was considered for a major modernization in 1951–52, but this was rejected as too expensive and time-consuming. ''Implacable'' was decommissioned in 1954 and sold for scrap the following year. +HMS ''Implacable'' was an ''Implacable''-class aircraft carrier built for the Royal Navy during World War II.

Implacable — British Tier VIII aircraft сarrier.

The most advanced British aircraft carrier of World War II. She was inferior to her foreign counterparts of comparable dimensions in terms of the number of aircraft her air group comprised, but boasted a conceptual advantage that enhanced the ship's survivability—an armored flight deck.

Player Opinion


Pros:

  • Attack aircraft are extremely effective against destroyers with their low speed and tighter turn. Despite the smaller size of British flights and squadrons, they are on par with American attack aircraft in terms of their strike capability.
  • Bombers have the ability to set multiple fires in one pass thanks to their drop pattern.
  • Torpedo bombers are easy to maneuver and to aim with, granting the possibility to attack multiple times the same target.
  • Torpedos have a short arming time.
  • Strong AA suite, making her almost immune to air attack.
  • With the exception of her sister-ship Indomitable, she's the only tier VIII aircraft carrier with an armored deck. Shells aimed at the deck are likely to shatter or bounce providing a good resistance when targeted from long range.

Cons:

  • Citadel is located well above the waterline, taking massive damage when showing the side.
  • Bombers have low penetration, making them extremely reliant to fires when attacking battleships.
  • Attack aircraft are painfully slow.
  • Bad plane recovery time, being second only to Saipan.
