i sent 2 squadron of fighter (Zuiho). They both died when only took down 2 planes of 1 American fighter squadron. This is kinda unfair for Japanese Carrier

isn't that JP carriers were intended to have better strikers and crap fighters?

I'm pretty sure that's what actual Japanese commanders thought back in the real world war 2 :v

Can I say USN CV had Less squadron than IJN one so that it's unfair? No.

 

Don't judge things at first sight.

Well Zeroes ARE pretty fragile back in the war. Gotta implement that for historical accuracy somehow.

 

Meanwhile...American fighters.

Well yeah, IJN fighters are outclassed by the sheer number per squadron of the USN fighters despite both having the average damage per second of 30. This is where I am confused, does the 30 DPS comes as per squadron (6 aircraft for USN while 4 aircraft for IJN) or per aircraft?  

 

Also kind of a side topic but what does it mean by the word LOADOUT within the stats under the fighters? Also, does anyone know where to find the manual by the developers showing the game mechanics?

DPS is per squadron, I believe, not per fighter.

 

Disregard, refer to Halken's post.

wrong Syanda, DPS is for per fighter. This can be observed by the sheer speed that some planes die when they just start the engagement.

 

60 dps per squad don't actually kill a 1400 survivability plane that fast.

Anyway shcerion, if what Halken_Sky said is right, these are the stats you are fighting against with the assumption that both you and their CV upgraded the fighter planes.

 

T5 Zuiho - Nakajima A4N

(120 DPS per Squadron; 970 Survivability) 

 

T5 Bogue - Boeing F4B
(180 DPS per Squadron; 940 Survivaibility) 

 

I have not included the possibility of using Air Groups Modification 1 which adds 10% to aircraft guns effectiveness and also your Commander Tier 1 Aircraft skill, Expert Rear Gunner. Also, you can't deploy 2 squadrons of fighters on a Zuiho, not with the stock Flight Control nor the Type5 mod.2. 

Anyway, when I play as IJN CV, I just went full 3 TBs and 1 DB, trying to do the most damage as much as I can before getting sunked.

I believe LOADOUT is the time it takes to run out of ammo or the amount of ammo you have when engaging enemy planes

To add on to it, do well to remember that plane damage in terms of the "dps" numbers are related to a RNG calculation. You can have an entire emeny squad die without spending much of the loadout or you can use up all the loadout on the fighter and not kill a single plane.

My IJN TB squadron did that a couple of time against IJN fighters but never against USN fighters.

Same here. Knowing how Corsairs would eat a squadron in a few seconds...

 

however, I did not expect people to rant over low tier Carriers :D
