Does the catapult fighter help spot enemies?

Yes, but its patrol range is shorter than scouts. If you play destroyers a lot you'll find them to be a major pain in the posterior.

Thanks, I was wondering if they would help a cruiser along the narrow middle lane of that map whose name I forgot in a battle with no carriers on either side.

when I play DD and try sneak pass CA/CL, their fighter just fly by over my head and say "Ah ha! there you are~~~" and shell start to fly to me from all over the place....

Best joke ever.

While catapult fighters are more versatile in that they have longer view ranges and able to engage and distract bomber groups, sonar is more consistent and able to work 360 degrees, plus it can't get knocked out/ shot down , fighters orbit and often miss destroyers and torpedoes occasionally as they may be on the opposite ends of the orbit, or can get shot down, but whatever you choose to equip is based on your preference really.

... come to think of it.

there's no distance indicator of plane like scout or catapult fighter show is there? all we can see is their icon flying.

 

we can only estimate our self how far they are by looking mini map... that's kind da bit bothering.
