Is it recommendable to put torpedo acceleration on TB planes in Essex or Taiho? I was planning to put it but I still have doubts on it. I'm confused between superintendent or torpedo acceleration since other captain skills on 3rd row are kinda useless now.

Super intendent useless for CV 

I recommend torpedo acceleration for IJN and Vigilance for USS or both, up to you because torpedo acceleration for USS quite useful, USS has 1 TB group(Saipan has 2 groups)

Why would you need Vigilance on a CV of all things?

Anyhow, just get Torp Accel. The increase in torp arm distance means you'll drop further away, but the increased speed makes up for it and also dropping further means your TB are under less AA time.

Dogfighting Expert is useless on any but tier7 CV (cuz Saipan), High Alert is sort of viable if you don't use any TB at all (aka [Redacted] Fighter loadout) but in that case you should be able to stop all enemy bombers before they reach your ship anyway.

 

Derogatory comment. Post edited, user sanctioned.

I'm not 100% sure but IIRC it applies to planes, rather good for spotting torps for your team.

TA is a must for any CV with converging torps like Saipan and all IJN CV, it is debatable on normal USN CV but it can be useful especially since nothing else is even remotely useful at 3rd skill
