    Ship Discussion: USS Enterprise

    From a thread in the NA forums.

    Also a cut and paste of a comment I had in that thread, regarding Enterprise's planes, at least her fighters.
    ===

    By nature of being Tier VIII, Enterprise is going to see Tier X matches with the expected, deadly Tier IX & X AA. Saipan as Tier VII can beat up on pathetic Tier V ships sometimes, and seeing Tier IX at the highest of her tier range. But Saipan sports Tier IX planes already. Saipan will be fine with her special niche of Tier IX planes on a Tier VII CV.


    As far as the fighters are concerned, I was wondering if WG was going to give Enterprise early war F4F Wildcats or mid / late war F6F Hellcats. But the 2nd pic the OP provided gives us that answer.



    For reference, here is Independence with F4F Wildcat fighters, note the stubby look and of course the insignia. The Wildcats are towards the end of the flight deck.





    For additional reference is my Tier VIII Lexington with F6F Hellcats.





    Enterprise will be sporting F6F Hellcats, not early war stuff. Mid-war air groups for her.


    Also as an FYI, Tier VIII Lexington's stock fighters are F6F Hellcats and she upgrades to F4U Corsairs. Enterprise will have lower tier aircraft but tons of planes in reserve (96). Lexington sports higher tier aircraft but lower reserves (72). Enterprise in the deadly confines of Tier IX & X AA will be in a way like Kaga. Her planes are going to be lost quickly but like Kaga, probably good enough to get strikes in and have the reserves to come back for more.

    @Mobius One can only hope.

    @Mobius 2/2/2 with 5-plane groups eh? Curious to see what the 2nd alt spec would be, probably AS oriented.

    2/2/2 with the expected Air Supremacy will look better, especially with Dogfighting Expert to contest with the typical 2/2/2 Shokaku. The spec is more flexible than anything Lexington has at the tier.

    @M.A.Mitscher There's no second spec listed, it's possible that she might be a one trick pony. Either that or they haven't decided what the second spec will be yet.

    @DLRevan Does it involve her having access to the T9 equipment mod slot, and that said upgrade actually makes her not poopy? (Having her plane durability buffed up to basically be on par with T9 is actually kind of a big deal, although she still has the issue of not being able to crack USN BBs reliably because DB bounces and shitty torps).
