The Midway is as hard as a rock that even Yamato can not damage it from face to face.  The only way to kill a CV now is to shoot from side. Are you sure about this?  CV should be the weakness body what have you done?

Well normally your shell will be plunging fire and will hit the  deck(87mm for midway) when u shoot at a carrier  normally unless he showing perfect broadside 

Then *bounces* unless u hit superstructure

Its always been that way. Like , ever since 2 years before the CV rework. Thats an armored flight deck.

Tier 10 CV is very tanky now thanks to the ridiculously fast reload DCP. Before that , they are AP proof.

this ship can be spotted miles away., you will wish enemy is midway than sneaky hakuryu. hakuryu has speed and stealth combine. its so hard to chase her, specially with CV improved damage con. even fires wont last long.

this..

Haha Seriously it is really funny when Shells land on Deck and bounce off of them.. I mostly had chances to hit Taiho and they were hard as a rock.. Breaking HE, Bouncing AP It could tank good amount of damage..

But just for player's sake the control of CV is like really bad with the rework it almost makes it impossible to control CVs and dodge torpedoes etc., Hence CVs now have hard time keeping track of where their ships go. Ending up facing enemy team or rushing into enemy team while your team was retreating from the flank lost to enemy team.

Yup. If you get in a situation where you are close to a CV then its very hard for them to dodge as they have to choose between plane and ship control.

I do get that it seems like they are super tanky to longer range fire, just make sure you know which CVs have armored decks and aim at the hull / water line. Any plunging fire on a T10 CV has a good chance of doing zip damage.
