    Kaga has higher DPS and more fighter squadrons assuming she goes 350. Especially with Dogfighting Expert, being VI aircraft they get a 30% damage boost.
    Plus even though they are Tier 6 bombers, the damage is the same, And 2x5 means the torpedo grouping will be insane. Hitting a battleship with 2 torpedo bombers is easy. Multiply that by five and that means instant 70000+ damage on anything in its way.
    However without a 19pt captain, Kaga will surely suffer against aircraft heavy carriers like the Ranger.

    @Gensui Hime The large bomber unit count is the interesting thing.

    Let's say you send your bombers against some non-Defensive Fire target. The player can only realistically focus one unit at a time to shoot stuff down with any efficiency. You may burn one down but what about the rest? They're coming in for a clean attack run.

    With the coming update, Kaga will be kneecapped.

    Her 3/5/0 loadout is no more, replaced by a 2/2/1 loadout. The 0/2/4 loadout becomes a 1/1/3 loadout. Only the default 4/2/0 remains untouched. She now has 4 Fighters per squad, and six Dive bombers or Torp bombers per squad, which probably means the USN cone dispersion for the Torp bombers.

    In short, Kaga is now an USN carrier, with a few Fighters in her Strike loadout.
    Somewhere, a Saipan driver is cackling maniacally.

    Source: SEA group.

    @Keyan_TTK I've always joked Saipan was really an IJN CV with a USN skin.

    2/2/1 = 8 fighters, 12 tb, 6 db fitting
    1/1/3 = 4 fighters, 6 tb, 18 db fitting

    I don't see anything about a 3rd spec. Looking at the 2 specs, the 2/2/1 looks better. Not fond of all those DBs and super reliance on RNG. My time on USN CVs has made me upset with that emphasis on RNG on DBs.

    Here is Kaga's gimmick torpedo drop:



    Good luck OS something more maneuverable than a heavy cruiser with it.

    @Keyan_TTK I remember posting that in the Discord and laughing at how Kaga is now basically trash tier.

    That thing can't even hurt BBs because the second wave can't be aimed separately. Yu either aim to hit the first and the second misses, or the reverse. Even a slow-ass target moving in a straight line wouldn't even get hit by half of them. Kaga would literally need a motionless target to really crush in one drop.


    I always pull my weight. I just happen to be made of helium.

    Old Kaga definitely had a more interesting gimmick with her small but numerous squads. @Emerald Acid, did your source tell you why it was changed? Too OP? Too hard to play? Too vulnerable to AA?

    That's straight up stupid of a new drop pattern. Most especially if my suspicion comes true that WG is going to remove Manual Drops for the rest of CVs past Tier V.

    @Mobius Well, what do ya think? IJN quality torpedoes with 5x2 squads for instant deletion, or 2x6 for unavoidable tons of damage.

    It may have been only one loadout, but yeah she was totally OP. Now she's worthless.
