As of now, the German Aircraft carriers concept offers the following peculiarities:

Airplanes have comparatively high cruise speed, but their HP pool is below average;

Attack aircraft use armor-piercing rockets. These rockets can deal high damage by hitting an enemy ship's citadel, but they allow a familiar counterplay: when they hit at an acute angle, they can ricochet or simply not penetrate the armor. Rockets fired at broadsided destroyers –with their thin armor– will result in overpenetrations that deal 10% of the maximum damage. Armor-piercing rockets can also ricochet against destroyers' end armor when the ship is bow-in to the planes. Therefore, a player's reaction against such rockets should be similar to the actions one would take against armor-piercing shells.

Bombers use armor-piercing bombs. Unlike the Japanese bombers, German ones dive immediately, without the prior altitude gain. Their drop zone is shaped like an elongated ellipse, and aiming it during an attack may be difficult. These bombs will be most effective against slower opponents.

The final shape of torpedobomber's launching cone is similar to that of Japanese and American torpedo bombers. The torpedoes have a range of 6 km.

The stats of these Aircraft carriers and Z-35, as well as the Z-35's concept will be published in the near future, stay tuned.

Tier VIII Soviet battleship V. I. Lenin, based upon the battleship Lenin, was added to the game. The new ship will be used for partner collaborations.

Was not expecting biplanes on a Tier 8 CV.

Wow so the German CVs are  going to be pretty bad in taking out DDs except for spotting. Perhaps DDs can breathe easy.

Well, looks like WGs answer to players concerns about CVs against DDs is to make a CV that is less effective against DDs.

Don’t you love how many of WG’s solutions is to introduce a new line rather than doing anything about existing lines.

Anyway, Now cruisers and BBs will be targeted, but that’s fine, as they have better AA, and Germans have low Hp.

I wonder if they will have faster generation rate to compensate?

Anyway, all this means is another line on permanent back burner for me. Still can’t play CVs on my network.

Z-35 is a T9 while Z-39 is T7 and Z-23 is T8? :fish_book: (To be fair, while Z-23 and Z-39 are in the same "class", and Z-35 is a different class, you can count Type 1936B as a subclass of Type 1936A/A Mob, just that there are many differences)

What will be gimmicks? EU torps? DAAF? Heal? :fish_book:

Gladly the main guns are 128, which allows the option of BFT/AFT :fish_aqua:

 

I expected some new designs, like Type 1938A/Ab or 1937J, not any of the 1936 designs.

Let them pave the way for Type 1945...

Shouldn't the T10 be "Manfred VON Richthofen"? 

NVM they explained it (watched the stream), the full name will have the "von" :fish_aqua:

Amen for that. I was expecting a tech tree clone of GZ.

This carriers are way below my expected 'aesthetic' of a German line.

Barely evoke any sense of pride and accomplishment
