So i basically just got my bogue aircraft carrier, but im wondering before i begin my grind for tier 6, can aircraft carriers be brought into operations?

I feel like that if they dont i would have grinded for nothing.

if you feel independence sux, move to IJN CV line. T6~T8 USN CV is inferior.... but after T9 and T10 they become good

its not too late to move to IJN CV

Yes you can but must remind that every ships will be equipped with AA Def consumable if available.

I used to quite like the USN CV's...right up until they took away my AS loadout.
Now I just get loads of hate when my single fighter squad cant hold back 4 squads of dmg dealers and a fighter all on their own. And RIP me if IJN choose their own AS loadout.
Great, you have as many fighters as I have squads in total at t6 and just 1 less at t7.
Completely stole any desire I had for pushing that line XD

For the current operation, Killer Whale, I find that the IJN Ryujo (1x fighter, 2x bomber and 2x torps) is better to do damage to ships, compared to Independence (1x fighter, 2x bomber and 2x torps).

I find that with Ryujo I'm generally further up in the team table, compared to Independence. With the 2 torp squads on Ryujo you can do cross-drops and even kill DD's, Independence cannot do that with the single squad.

But I have to say I'm a lousy carrier player, my results may not reflect the capabilities of the carriers very well.

Before one of the latest updates, there was an Independence setup for air-superiority. Was not so good to do damage, but great to clear the skies... but that has been changed.

One thing to keep in mind for any scenario with forts: forts do have powerful AA! Wait for the team to take them down, or your squadrons get shredded above them.

The operations are excellent to train captains or earn XP / credits.

Ok, it's clearly a typo. But thank you, oh so much, thank you, for pointing that out (leave the guy alone already, sheesh).
