    @Murrue I guess I know who this certain someone is. But if this is really the case, this could be a compact k2. Say, you can choose between the CVL form and the other form.

    Considering how they said that one of the new equipments is a reward of a Suzuya K2 related quest and how convertible K2 have no default equipment, I'd argue that it's quite possible.

    RJ be screaming they dont need more buxom CVL. And it might be Tanaka's way to adress people complaining about the lack of CVL, without going into the USN.

    So we might get an convertibel Suzuya Kai ni. Hmm that would actually be pretty intersting, let's see how this will turn out. In any case, more CVLs are always welcome convertibel or not.

    Hmm......maybe it's me but I don't think I'll keep Suzuya as K2-CVL for long given that we only have 6 CAVs. I might just turn her into a CVL, finish up the (Zero 63?) quest and then turn her back into a CAV.

    For me, all these hinges on whether Kumano will really get a K2 (there's a jacket in the current
    Mitsukoshi collaboration that is described as ".....a must buy item for Mogami, Mikuma and K2-inbounding Suzuya and Kumano admirals" but I'll believe it when the devs really tweet about her) as I don't want to separate the sisters. :(

    It would be best if them 2 gets convertible K2s and Ibuki joins the fleet (IIRC she was mentioned way back in 2013/4!) but how big would be that chance I wonder?

    @Cosmic Penguin Well if it's a convertible you could always go back and forth, depending on what you need. The constant modernisation for every switch might be a bit annoying though.

    I wonder if we really get Ibuki sometime in the future, considering she was never completed. Then again so was Graf Zeppelin.... hmm let's wait and hope for the best. That reminds me neet/sheltered girl Tirpitz when kdkw lol?

    On the other hand there are only 5 fast CVLs at the moment and speed locking made itself felt lately.

    Did they mention her? I can't find her in the hinted content page of the wiki and I don't really remember it.

    Well, there were the already mentioned Ibuki and possibly Seydliz as potential alternatives, but I guess that similar issues with what they want to implement and in what order might apply in their case too, who knows.

    It was in an interview in the Hobby Japan Feb/2014 issue. The same interview also mentions Tone/chikuma k2, and introduction of maruyu, matsu class DD, coastal defense ship and Shinano though, and only the former two are introduced so far.

    Highly doubt Suzuya becomes a CVL on remodel based on historical basis. She didn't even become a CAV in reality, let alone there being any plans at all for her conversion to a CVL. The link to Ibuki is extremely tenuous in my opinion, Ibuki may have been based on Mogami class but they are still distinct classes. Furthermore, it would probably have not been worth the effort rebuilding Suzuya into a flat-top. Ibuki still being under construction at the time is another deal.

    The Reisen is also a fight-bomber designed to take-off from very short flight decks. It has a lot of weight-saving measures up to the point of minimum viable combat capability. Something like that could conceivably launch from something like Akitsumaru, or Suzuya/Kumano with an expanded flight deck. I think it would make more sense if Suzuya is just able to equip this bomber as a CAV.


    But KC is a game, and the game doesn't have to follow these points if it makes sense for gameplay. I don't think I would like it though. I don't see Suzuya as having a CV image at all or fitting that role, else I'd be fine if she is simply able to convert freely between CAV and CVL.

    Thanks, I've managed to find the relevant interview here. It should get added to the wiki.

    As quoted from Lacroix "The general outline of the Basic Design No. C-46 was largely identical to that of the cruisers Suzuya and Kumano as definitively completed in 1939 after the Third Efficiency Improvement Works", C-46 being the basic design of Ibuki; Suzuya was much closer to Ibuki than Mogami, to the point that Mogami carried two more boilers (decks' height, length of the protected areas, etc. changed considerably too).

    As for the likelihood of something similar happening, after Midway they made a study which included every major surface combatant (i.e. heavy cruisers and battleships) for their conversion into carriers, this what they calculated

    (Source is again Japanese Cruisers of the Pacific War)
    Eventually the study produced only the partial conversion of Ise and Hyuga, but all the heavy cruiser except for the Furutaka class were deemed to be viable, they were not converted because they were needed for fleet service, still there's a tenuous, "what if", justification.
