  1. Funny I don’t remember Graf Zepplien ever being comparable to Ark Royal or Yorktown as either carried more aircraft than she ever could.

    • as the vids are good but it doesnt have much viewers

    • To be fair, Graf Zeppelin did have absolutely massive hangers.
      In terms of total hanger floorspace they where larger than most other carriers of the time. I looked it up and a Yorktown has around 3200m2. Ark Royal was pretty big herself with around 5500m2, but Graf Zeppelin was around 5600m2. For comparison, the also very large Shokaku was around 5500m2 and Essex was around 4250m2. Deck parking made a big difference and skews the numbers in favour of the USN. In reality they had a price to pay for their single open hanger because such a structure was heavier than two closed hangers of larger size. From what I understand, it has to do with breaking up the hull and creating a superstructure on top of it. US carriers did that and that made their hulls weaker, thus they needed more material to compensate. Other navies just one hull structure all the way to the flight deck and that was lighter.

      The problem with Graf Zeppelin was how the planes where intended to be stored. The Germans intended to line them up in a single row with a lot of space between the planes for arming and maintaining them. Then they literally wanted to lift them up the plane by crane attached to the hanger roof, move them to a lift, put the plane on a launching trolley and catapult them. It was one of many issues that Graf Zeppelin had in its design phase.

      In theory the Germans could have made quite a useful carrier out of Graf Zeppelin, but only after a major rebuild where they would have to change a lot of the ships internals. They also would need a lot of knowledge gathered about how to carry out carrier operations. And that wasn’t going to happen. And even then, the hangers did include a large number of fuel lines that ran over the with of the hanger at the roof. The Germans seem to have picked that up from the IJN and that seems to have been a good part of the massive fired those ships suffered when hit…

  2. Something I never wanted more than enough CVs

  3. “The operational elements weren’t inferior to those of Ark Royal and Yorktown”? Ah, yes they were, they’d have to actually exist to be fairly compared to those on ships that actually did.

    • Most soviet ship designs can be best described as Stalin appeasement ships, stoke his ego and pray you never have to actually try to build it and if you did build it pray they forgot you designed it.

    • @fourteenfour Yeah, that’s every Nations motto and pride, but Stalin and the Soviets only see this as a Dream could ever Imagine and to be the Best on their Navies, but never actually Real, he dies for Good than live more years

    • It’s game nimrod.

  4. “The operational elements weren’t inferior to those of Ark Royal and Yorktown”
    Huh!…Said a ship that never could exist. xD

  5. And, as we all know, Soviet aircraft carriers single handedly won WWII.

    • And then they create the Gate of the Multiverse in Man in the High Castle to Alternate their History to Win in WWII, defeating both Allies and Axis by themselves, they destroy the Statue of Liberty and make a Weird Communist Man standing statue, and invade Japan and steals all their Warships and slap the Existing names in Paperships where the Project has never been build.

      Totally, Historical Accuracy, after watching the Man in the High Castle S4 ending

    • With the upcoming line German will has the most tech tree ships and we all know how big their navy was in WW2 right? Oh wait.

    • theyre who sank the tirpitz

    • Robert Charles Sullivan

      No they did not win ww2 get your information right

    • @Robert Charles Sullivan its a joke

  6. What’s next WOWs? Tier X Russian carrier will be angled deck carrier with Jet aircraft armed with Anti Ship Missiles?
