It increases your Fire chance each bomb

Tho I'm can't comment how it would improve CV gameplay as I don't play CV

Well, why Saratoga (Lexington) deals much more fire when she has Demolition Expert? same as the Saipain too?

and somehow i've offended another snowflake, REEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

my "claim" was that if you already have 120% fire chance you are going to be setting fires every other bomb hit anyways, adding another 3% wont do jack to improve it becasue when the base fire chance is already that high and you still dont set a fire then a little boost form DE wont do shit anyways

 

ah yes, and no on wants to hear shit from you either harpoon

To OP,  no doubt it will increase the fire chance for bombs, and you will benefit from that. 

 

But there are many skills you can pay for with 3 commander points that will give you even more benefit. 

 

You can have another 3 point skill, or have a 2 point and a 1 point skill, or three 1 point skills. 

 

Just food for thought.

Nay taking BFT, AFT or CE with leftover points are more important.

Emergency takeoff, Dogfight or evasive maneuver are up to your flavor but still better than DE.

Unless like the shark guy you want to go secondary build for the lolz

CV bombs have over 100% chance of fires. DE is almost useless (you can get better effects by stacking the DoT flags instead).

 

Take something more meaningful for the 3rd skill. TAE or BFT and good picks.

Good question OP! Unfortunately the effect of DE is negligible at best (depends where the bombs hit, generally superstructure ones get a fire)  due to their high fire chance already.

CV play can be both frustrating and rewarding, so good luck and always take some time to cool down after playing : )

No, Don't get the commander skill, it's very rare that you get bomb drops that cause no fire (maybe once or twice every 20 games) plus with AP bombs incoming for USN, if your playing saratoga Lexington, you won't be needing fires if you play with AP bombs.

 

Just some advice:

1) I find evasive manoeuvre more of a liability - I find that the plane tends to just hover over your aircraft carrier when landing - I have this skill and I noticed my TBs started to land on my Lexington, I used my only FT in 111 load out to shoot down 2 IJN squads, In the time it took to shoot 2 IJN FT down (obviously with barraging) my TBs STILL hadn't landed, It's also pretty useless against AA, If you find yourself stuck in a Def AA, Your planes are gone, evasive manoeuvre won't save them (at tier 8 - it was not a skill when I was playing tier 6 & 7) Also I recommend not playing 202 - There's just no point, there is nothing your FT can do more efficiently than ship based AA, If your like me and don't want chat salt, 013 also isn't the way to go(I guess it's pick your poison), Also I don't recommend an AA build Lexington (not even One skill or mod unless you play 013), there's no point in that either, I had one Fighter plane (one plane not one squad of planes), I had this plane dogfight 2 full IJN FT squads of 10, and the lone Fighter won because I selected the FT and used Def AA (Still amuses me why people think CV sniping is a legitimate strategy from T8 upwards).

2) Manual drop works 2 ways, droping as close as possible isn't always the best Idea, better 4 torpedoes dropped further than 1 Torpedo ad a non dodge-able distance 

3) Lexington is actually pretty decent if it wasn't for +2 MM, Enjoy Ranger while you have her, I somehow miss Ranger even though Saipan made playing a pain probably because AA was less of a concern.
