    Catapult questline + Iwamoto

    Since I need to turn Zuikaku into an armored carrier, I'm getting started with the lengthy quest chain for the catapult. Since those quests are also required for the Iwamoto fighter, I just thought I'd confirm before doing anything.

    So in order to keep the upgrades, it's advisable to first MAX a regular Type 0 Model 21 (Skilled) via Akashi, and then go:

    Zero Model 21 (Skilled) -> Zero Model 21 (Iwamoto) -> Zero Model 52A (Iwamoto) -> Zero Model 53 (Iwamoto)

    Is that correct?

    Secondary question: considering the apparent importance of armored carriers in the upcoming event, how likely is it that a flight deck catapult will be available either as a map reward or a time-limited quest? As a relative newbie, I haven't gotten any catapults from previous events, so I currently could never upgrade Saratoga or Taiyou since only 2 catapults can be acquired through quests.

    1. If you have spare skilled pilot, you can actually go with max vanilla zero 21>use F22 to convert max zero 21 to max zero 21 skilled, then follow the steps you listed. You will save some fodder this way, but not really a big difference since the screw cost of modding zero 21 and zero 21 skilled is the same.

    The same principle can be applied for F26 quest line (iwai) and F15 (reppu 601). This is particularly important for F15 because you CANNOT mod reppu 601. Modding it before you complete the quest is the only way you can mod reppu 601 now.

    2. Sadly, no idea about that.

    I actually haven't gotten a single skilled pilot yet, but since I have the skilled plane from Hiryuu and Souryuu K2 already, I'll just use that. I don't mind the extra fodder, as long as the screw cost is the same.

    And thanks for the tip on those other quests
