I'm starting this thread with one wonder:

USN cruisers, although having 2 catapult launchers since Cleveland, feature no scout plane, only a catapult fighter in one slot?

Because cruisers need a perk that allows them to shoot longer distances from a very unnatural angle (for me anyway).

Because balance.

Everybody would choose spotter plane for longer range than catapult fighter for AA defense. Admit it, we all want to but spotter plane is available only for high tier cruisers. ;)

You don't need it.

 

You'll never hit anything with the range increase anyway.

So these are all my coonfusions after reading all your thoughts:

-At which tier does USN cruisers get the scout plane?

-I'm very happy with my Cleveland's accuracy even with GFCS upgraded and shoot as far as possible, so the scout won't reduce much accuracy, and why doesn't Wargaming add it?

1. Tier 9 for US and Japan. Don't know for Germany but I assume it's the same.

2. Because they are already strong as they are.

I've actually stopped taking the Scout plane  on all of my Ships - the Advantage of having a Fighter (Especially in My BBs to mess with incoming TB/DB attacks) is much more  advantageous - the increased dispersion generally means I'm wasting my time.
