Hi all i don't play this game much but i have unlocked tier 5 USA carrier and have upgraded planes and added mods to improve my fighters. My issue is i have 2 squadrons of fighters that just get blown in less then 1 second(yes it was 1 second!) by 1 enemy squadron! it has happened several times! how is this possible or is it a bug in the game?

Its happened to me as well. Several times the enemy squadron has not even engaged just passed by and I lost half my squadron of fighters.

Your fighters got strafed.

 

Avoid blobbing your planes. They're prone to getting wiped out when an enemy fighter squad starts to strafe.

It's Strafing and you can perform this by holding CTRL  just like Manual Torpedo bombers. =)

I thought it was alt, but I can't remember since I barely play CV

 

Its fun seeing people get strafed tho :hiding:

its hold down Alt to get the manual drop for torp and dive bombers as well as the fighter strafe unless you've changed it :coin:

he means grouping aircraft in one huge group or blob, to prevent them from being taken out at the same time.

 

also before the game start, check battleship AA stats' if its higher than your CV AA then don't go near that battleship.
