    @DLRevan I'm guessing the 3 DB fitting with AP bombs cutting off the balls of some random German BB player that invested nothing at all in AA. That's what got you reported. BB players have complained about AP bombs more than torpedo bombers since Enterprise's AP bombs came out.

    @M.A.Mitscher Enterprise and some previous iterations of GZ have of course been supremely good at deleting German BBs, somewhat OK versus other BBs, RNG fest versus CAs and virtually worthless on anything smaller. That's nothing new.

    Sometimes certain weapon types don't do what you expect....like RNCL AP being intended for eating destroyers alive.

    On another note perhaps, Asia Cruiser meta has been back in force lately when I'm playing. Sometimes I don't even see any battleships, even IJN and German, which are the most common....

    So this is what Zeppelin's exclusive (for the "beta-testers") camo will look like

    Hello everyone!

    As the long process of Graf Zeppelin testing is slowly coming to its final phase, we're happy to share our special GZ permanent camo design. Frankly speaking, after reading your suggestions, we let our imagination run free, but hey, who wants a regular design for such a cool cause? Anyway, let us know what you think, and here are the bonuses:

    * Both standard combat bonuses;
    * +50% to combat XP;
    * +50% to commander XP;
    * +10% to credits;
    * -10% to service fee.

    Zeppy's shakedown runs tests are nearing completion, and here is the last build being tested, as posted on the FB page:

    (incoming wall o'text)

    Hello everyone!

    We would like to thank all testers for participation. Your contribution is very important for us and helps make the game better.

    Today we are ready to share the final setup of Graf Zeppelin and tell you about the fifth stage of testing.

    After analyzing your answers to the survey, we added standard torpedoes for t-bombers. In port you can choose standard or deep-waters torpedoes. DW torpedoes can't harm destroyers, but they have bigger chance for flooding than standard.

    For bombers two types of bombs will be available - HE and AP. AP bombs allow for more damage in a single approach. HE bombs deal more damage over time with fires and destroy ships' modules.

    According to your answers we increased the loadout of fighters and decreased their number slightly in hangars to increase the number of strike planes. Also we changed angles of secondary armament on the carrier's deck. Now they can open fire from both sides of the ship.

    We also received a lot of feedback regarding detectability range and some comments about aircraft type on the ship. We want to clarify and exclude further misunderstanding between players and developers. Graf Zeppelin's hull and superstructure height are the reason we can't decrease this parameter.

    We are not planning any changes to the fighters and strike aircraft except for increased loadout. Graf Zeppelin has a very powerful strike setup. Her AP bombs are quite effective against battleships and cruisers, t-bombers can threaten most types of ships and secondary armament can be a serious danger for destroyers.

    Moreover, opposing team has to have a chance for countermeasures to the powerful Graf Zeppelin and each ship has an aspect which needs to be handled with extreme caution. In case with German carriers - it is durability of her planes. When it comes to fighter planes it is a good idea to use their tier VII as an advantage and pick the "Dogfighting Expert" skill for your captain. It will help you significantly, since most of the planes which you are going to meet in battles will be tier VIII aircraft. And this skill will provide you with +10% to average damage per second.

    Now let's talk about the setup of Graf Zeppelin. In the final test you can try two setups:

    1-2-1: 1 fighter squadron containing 8 planes (16 units total), 2 torpedo bomber squadrons, five planes in each (27 units total) and 1 dive bomber squadron containing 9 planes (29 units total). This is the setup you tested in version 0.6.13. The setup has received very good feedback from players and has a great combat performance.

    2-0-3: 2 fighter squadrons, five planes in each (24 units total) and 3 dive bomber squads, 3 planes in each (48 units total), bombers are equipped with AP bombs only. It's the default setup of the Graf Zeppelin that she received after becoming available. After many tweaks it has become quite effective. The circular drop zone for bombers will remain and the circle itself will become a little smaller. This will allow for increased efficiency and competitiveness with the other flight control.

    Also we added Hydroacoustic Search similar to tier VII Cruisers with the following stats: duration - 94 sec, torpedo detection range - 2,97 km, ship detection range - 4,2 km, cooldown for Hydroacoustic Search I - 180 sec and Hydroacoustic Search II - 120 sec, charges for Hydroacoustic Search I - 2 and Hydroacoustic Search II - 3. It's a very unusual consumable for an Aircraft Carrier, but we think it may help you in some situations complementing her good secondary armament.

    We are going to start the next stage in the near future and the carrier will be available for testing for two weeks. This test is probably going to be the last one and you should be able to try the ship in her production variant after that. And as we promised, all players who decided to keep Graf Zeppelin will receive a custom permanent camouflage for her, moreover, ships will be exclusive to their current owners for at least 3 months. During this period you can get a refund for the ship if you don't like her.

    Thank you for your participation and see you soon!

    You'd have to be stupid to pick DWTs over normal torps for the TBs. Extra flooding chance? LOL!
