when people think of T10 CVs being OP they always say stuff like

"CVs have unlimited planes to throw at you"

"CVs can spot you whenever he wants"

"CVs do all this damage and we cant shoot back"

 

well im here to tell you you're wrong, it's not just about the damage dealt, but also the damage taken

as context, i was the last ship alive facing 4 ships, i APDBed a sushi that split and tried to cap B to death, and then when their CV spotted me, the JB you saw above you started chaseing and shooting me, time was 16:30 ish~

so, for a whole 3 and half minutes i simply angled my bow and  their JB failed to do basically substantial any damage to me, so this happened

and why is that?

 

what people dont realize is that high tiers, it is actually devilish hard to kill a CV with a BB at any range above their spotting distance if they are bow in or ass in, this is due to the armored deck and the plungeing nature of the shells

so what does that mean for CVs with actual armored decks and espically for hakuryu?

it means that CV tanking is actually a thing if there are no HE spammers around

exhibit 1: you bow in against a BB at mid-long range

for all armored decked CVs, no BB AP can plunging fire through your deck except for the front portion of implacable which is 25MM, but that thing is shit anyways, so we dont talk about that ship

so unless you let a BB close enough that he can consistently enough go though your bow you dont need to worry about getting normal penned from the front, as for being citadeled through the bow...

exhibit 2: shit shit shit BB too close situation

angle slightly and reverse, make sure that the BB dosnt get a clear shot straight into your bow and bait them into shooting your midsection

CVs were notoriously hard to damage from anything with plunging fire since whenever. Take this from the mino player who kept on watching bouncing shells on the deck...

Thermite shells may be?  with reduce shell velocity.

In fact HE shell shattering can be reduced with reduce shell velocity also.  only AP shell need the high speed/energy for penetration.
