Aircraft carriers (also known as CV for short) play a key role in World of Warships Blitz, since they are different compared to the other ship classes that are in the game. Aircraft carriers can be played once you reach tier 4 and there are currently two nations that have aircraft carriers, USN (The United States Navy) and the IJN (Imperial Japanese Navy). They are both different and have special abilities that can help support your team and destroy the enemy ships.
Aircraft carriers have 3 different types of planes with a unique role, these are:
Torpedo bombers (TB)
They carry torpedoes much like destroyers, but can fly over targets that are far away. These torpedoes are slower and weaker than those found on DDs but they unleash a heavy blow if you get a good hit and can cause flooding to a warship which causes damage over time.
NOTE: Flooding damage does not stack and a ship can only be flooding once at a time.
Dive bombers (DB)
They carry bombs and drop right onto the target, these are much more RNG-based compared to TBs. Bombs have a chance to cause fires which also cause damage over time.
NOTE: A ship can be on fire up to 4 times, but a ship can flood and be on fire at the same time.
These are different to DB/TB but are just as important for aircraft carriers, since they are used to scout the area or attack other planes. These are key to defending yourself and allies from enemy attack aircraft (DB/TB). To make fighters more effective, attack enemy planes located in the vicinity of friendly ships (especially cruisers/battleships) so that the enemy has to defend from multiple AA guns.
Aircraft carriers have a top-down view and can see the entire map. This allows them to send their squadrons to different targets at the same time, anywhere. Overall, aircraft carriers are really important for all aspects of the game, aside from capturing objectives. Fighters scout and protect and bombers attack enemies to bring victory ever closer.
