Indomitable — British Tier VIII aircraft сarrier.

The last ship from the Illustrious-class carriers, which represented a revolutionary breakthrough in the development of aircraft carriers thanks to the introduction of an armored flight deck. In contrast to the lead ship, she had an increased capacity and could carry more aircraft.

Player Opinion

Performance

Indomitable joins the Royal Navy in World of Warships as its first premium Tier VIII aircraft carrier, bringing with her a very unique playstyle. Her most striking difference from Implacable, her tech tree counterpart, is a lack of torpedo bombers, forcing Indomitable captains to double down on her attack aircraft and level bombers. As a result, Indomitable is a very situational aircraft carrier, and must choose her targets carefully.

Indomitable’s attack aircraft have several differences with Implacable’s. While her payloads deal less total damage, Indomitable’s attack aircraft are considerably faster, cruising at a base speed of 188 knots and 228 knots with boost, allowing her to react much more quickly to opportunities and strike destroyers. Furthermore, the enhanced speed allows Indomitable to offset her increased plane regeneration time: 115 seconds without upgrades or captain skills.

Indomitable’s level bombers also have tweaked parameters. Indomitable’s level bombers have only two sets of two planes per attack flight and less bombs per payload, but an abnormally high speed for bombers of her tier: 182 knots cruising and up to 217 knots with boost. Furthermore, Indomitable’s level bombers have a whopping 2590 base HP, higher than even Audacious’ of 2340. This allows Indomitable to excel at hit-and-run strikes, but against all but low AA targets, she struggles to get two complete strikes off.

At 13.5km base detection range, Indomitable is also stealthier than her tech tree equivalent. With the Concealment Expert captain skill and camouflage, she can reach 11.79km of detection range, allowing her to reposition much more easily even without Concealment System Modification 1. Additionally, each of Indomitable’s plane types carry 4 charges of the Patrol Fighters consumable, decreasing the number of times squadron commanders may find themselves out of fighters on a specific plane type.

Pros:

  • Best plane speed in the game, even better than Graf Zeppelin's Ta-152s
  • Planes have a very high base healthpool, especially the bombers
  • Better ship concealment than techtree counterpart Implacable
  • Each squadron carries four Patrol Fighter (While active, a group of fighter planes circles a location spotting and engaging enemy aircraft.) consumables
  • The only carrier in the game that still has the "slingshot drop" mechanic

Cons:

  • No torpedo bombers
  • Very long plane restoration time
  • Even at full capacity, squadrons are very small
  • While fast, the planes lack maneuverability
  • Rockets and bombs struggle to damage heavily armored targets
  • Heavily reliant on damage over time via fires
  • The carrier itself is rather slow

Research

As a premium ship, Indomitable doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Indomitable are as follows:

Upgrade Slot 5 offers Flight Control Modification 1, which will significantly decrease the long plane regeneration time and increase the number of planes on deck. Because Indomitable has fairly good base concealment, Concealment Modification 1 is not as vital, especially with commander skill Concealment Expert. However, captains seeking to maximize stealth may consider using Concealment Modification 1.

Commander Skills

After taking Air Supremacy and Improved Engines, captains have several choices on the order the path they may wish to take. Survivability Expert and Aircraft Armor are both must-haves to bolster her planes’ already high survivability, but Demolition Expert and Concealment Expert can be taken in order of preference. With a fully fledged 19 point captain, Improved Engine Boost, Last Gasp, and Direction Center for Fighters are Quality-of-Life improvements.

Consumables

Like other aircraft carriers, the captain of Indomitable does not control the ship's consumables.

Indomitable equips the following consumables:

Indomitable's aircraft can equip the following consumables: Attack Aircraft:

Carpet Bombers:

Camouflage

As a premium aircraft carrier, Indomitable comes with Type 10 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her service cost, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
