The Battleship Yamato-based hull armor that was converted into Carrier.

Shinano has low Aircraft carried its like an Light aircraft Carrier -.- but its named standard aircraft carrier

 

Aircraft carried: 47

 

so probably it will become an premium I guess

Doesn't matter, has thick armor to balance it out. Hahahaha

Shinano is planned to be Supercarrier after all.

I wonder how WG will design the Shinano in game, although it was based of the Yamatos' hull, it was easily destroyed by a sub using 4 torps, but since this is an

arcade game and everything doesn't have to be historically accurate so maybe there could be some modification done to fit that arcade playstyle

Really challenging on to balance the game content. Probably better planes to balance it out??

U-boat? U-BOAT? You mean germans destroyed Shinano? 

 

No. Shinano was destroyed by USS-Archerfish, a Balao-class submarine.

It doesn't have to be a premium, guys. Why do people always assume that if a tree is full, any more additions are premiums?

 

They could just have multiple sub-branches for the IJN carrier branch that splinters off.

Planes are not much heavy. And WG really has to stick to its number. CV Shinano has 47 operational planes, though its 120 replacement planes were meant for resupplying other carriers or land-based airfield and not for combat ready. Well... it's up to the Dev and the Game Balance department on resolving that issue, my brain has flatten enough already from thinking. :sceptic:

Oh and Shinano wasn't really planned to be a carrier. She should be the 3rd Yamato-class battleship but the after the loss of 4 Aircraft Carriers on the Battle of Midway. The partially completed hull was ordered to be converted into an Aircraft Carrier or Supercarrier.

 

So like Taihou can be Tier 9 and Shinano would be the Tier 10 because Shinano's flight deck is somewhat designed after Taihou's.

I wonder about this ship's Health/Armor if it ever gets added in-game. When you try to base from it's irl performance, it was indeed designed with a heavily armored belt, but sank easily due to her design flaws, also needless to say, poor damage control.

But can launch a plane if its a moderately damage if I'm right.

I'm not so sure about that. I mean if speaking about the game itself, i havent even played it XD

but if you'd be basing from real life (again), a damaged elevator/flight deck is enough to prevent a CV from launching planes.
