Here’s our First Look at Premium Russian aircraft carrier Chkalov. Chkalov mixes the T10 torpedo bombers of Admiral Nakhimov with the T8 skip bombers of Pobeda, but foregoes the attack (rocket) aircraft to also deploy dive bombers. As fragile as these planes are, taking them all the way into an enemy’s inner AA ring seems ill-advised, but here we are. What else does this have going for it? Let’s look around and see.

  1. I’ll echo what some have said based on the gameplay I’ve seen in other videos, but Chkalov seems to be good for DD hunting.

  2. The graphic design of the all the twin engine planes for the Soviets look great. Very “Crimson Skies”

  3. With what they did to rocket planes, dive bombers seem to be the best option for DD hunting.
