Well, uss ranger is really hard to score citadel hit from any of it's armaments. Although the dive bombers could drop 3 bombs at a time but the accuracy and the damage it causes to the opponent was really low. And the chances of the enemy ship getting flooding is really low. I hope that the dev could increases the chances of flooding and citadel hit from dive bomber of the uss ranger a bit higher so it could make cv players feel a bit more happy about the uss ranger.

Well complete opposite experience then what I had in the ranger I really enjoyed her,

The USN CV line has HE dive bombers their purpose is to set fires and force DCP not to citadel targets due to their bombs not having enough penetration to reach the citadel they also have lower damage at low-mid tier but will get higher damage at tier 8 and 10 (14-30k drops, depends really) if you want to citadel targets switch to IJN CVs cause they have AP dive bombers. Also all the carriers have low flood chances because of the amount torps you can land in x amount of time plus you will have a easier time landing torps on surface ships compared to DDs. You have to keep in mind aswell that you are only tier 6


So pointers
1. Want more floods? Aim your torps for bow(Front) and stern(Back) it has a higher chance to flood due to most ships not having torpedo protection in those areas
2. Want more damage? Force DCP on your target then come back with your dive bombers or any other flight and land DOT damage this includes fire, floods etc
3. Want Citadels? Switch to the IJN CVs they actually have the Armour Piercing bombs the USN and RN only have High Explosive Bombs

Unless you are attacking stuff like Kumas or Tenryuus in Operations, you can't really citadel stuff with the Ranger's HE divebombers, and they are not meant to do so anyway.

The main strength of the HE dive bombers is their reliable damage and the ability to do to DoT. If you want to nuke stuff with dive bombers, play the IJN CVs and use their AP dive bombers instead.
