This is my idea to help people escort and play air supremecy in cv play.

 

Add a squadron kill ribbon that for every 5 planes from a SINGLE source.  This is because carriers have 2 different health pools. Their ship health pool and their attack health pool. We can get citadels on the ship health of carriers, but not on their attack health pool. So, for every 5 planes lost, that's a big number of planes out of attacking other players, which should count the same as a citadel.

Adding this will help heavy aa crusiers to escort weaker members, and carrier players to run air supremecy and not just strike.  They will get the xp and credits to what they have done for the team.

Now to explain what I mean by a single source.  This means any 5 planes from one ship.  For example, you shoot down 1 fighter, 2 dive bombers and 2 torp. bombers from the same carrier will get you a squadron kill, but if you shoot 1 fighter, 1 db, 2 tb, and 1 spotter, then you won't because the spotter came from another ship.

 

What do y'all think?

Any other ways to improve this idea?

i dont agree if it all came from the same ships.

 

i prefer there is 1 more ribbon maybe call "Wipeout" if you manage to kill the entire squadron ( 6 for normal USN CV or 4 for normal IJN CV)

 

 

so if a squadron of IJN TB came, and someone manage to kill all 4, then he will get the ribbon, but if he manage to kill 3, and other player kill1, no one get the ribbon

No, the idea is to encourage cv air supremecy play. 

This is because cv have 2 health bars.  1 for ship and 1 for attack.

This would be the same xp for a cit on the ship as you took out 5 planes. 

For any mid-tier to low-tier cv, the loss of 5 planes would be a major loss of attack health.

For high tier cv, it's less of a loss, but would encourage cv players to do air defence as this would help reward them for doing this as opposed to right now, where they don't get rewarded for helping the team this way.

I just reviewed it again, and I left out a really important part.  This would be over the entire length of the battle not just one time like devestating strike.  So if a cv flys over you 5 different times and you shoot down 1 plane each time, you would still get the ribbion as you shoot 5 of his planes down. And it would count in the xp the same as a citedal hit on a ship as you hurt the cv ability to attack just as much.

Hope that this is clearer than before.
