Franklin D. Roosevelt has an amazing strike capability. Her planes are still maneuverable after starting a strike, which makes her play very differently. It’s stupidly strong.

Lol that is completely absurd. What can you even say about this except laugh and shake your head?
It’s the Hakaryu torp bombers with super long range strike all over again.
if you want an *actually* broken CV, here ya go STs.
That was a positive gaming experience for the Pommern. I wanted to be a DD main but the CV rework made that impossible so now I am 215 steel short of driving the FDR.
FDR doesn’t affect DDs though!
i am fairly new to the game. how can you get steel. i just have around 1 k. and ships cost way more than that :/
@bt220h Ranked and Clan Battles
@Aerroon Welp, you didn’t even try, maybe spoting the halland when figthing the thunderer could have been useful and maybe even win the game?
Yea how can anyone say that this CV isn’t broken…
But it is a steel ship
well, i guess its quite “balanced” since the torp gap are quite big for a CV. Still the the Dive Bomber are wayyyyy too rediculous because damn the damage
Lmao this here is what CV mains loathe for… Immortal Planes? Consistent damage like Midway? That thing looks satisfying to play
@Night Raid Sky yeah, imagine IL-2 Strumovik if Soviet CV will release in the game. That thing absorb almost hundred of German Flak but still flying
The only broken aspect are the bombs. And barely.
Wow. That thing is pretty epically powerful.
this doesnt seem fun for the game 🙁
didn’t CVs work like this for a very short time during testing for the rework, until WG realized that it’s just insane and changed it
Yeah but this cost steel so its balanced
Why can’t I hold all this damage?
That pommern, roon, bismark, and fdg had a lot of fun. Hey what doya know they are all brawling ships.
I was reassured by WG employees that CVs repeatedly attacking the same target over and over is not normal behavior. Can WG be the ones out of touch or is it you Aerroon?
Me. It’s me.
I feel like the plane tankiness is one of the key element, for being able to pull off strikes.
Until you meet a Halland or a huge group of ships hugging each other for a big AA bubble.
But also that aiming in advance and turning to do the strike is kinda insane, looking at how the aim is not affected from the turn or as the game calls it, evading maneuver.
On other cvs, the aim is messed up if you do that
You can do the exact same thing with MvRs Rocket planes, its just crazy.
British cvs do it as well funnily enough
Sad how a DD has better AA than BB’s that have 3 Hollands worth of artillery secondaries strapped to them.
This thing is beyond broken, it has no downsides beyond “Being slow” Even a fully built AA Halland can barely shoot these things down. 8 torps in a single salvo? HE bombs with that many planes in a flight? This thing needs to be nerfed to hell and I PLAY CVs and enjoy them. But jesus christ this thing, I refuse to buy it for how broken it is. It’s Smolensk all over again. I also remember Ryujo and other IJN torpedo bombers being able to do this. Where you could make the drop and let the cone zero in while turning. It was broke then, it’s broke now.
the 8 torps isn’t that much of an issue. the alpha is barely higher than a midway. the issue is the bloody turning ability and the ideal torpedo spread, which midway doesn’t get
@nathy I’d call 20k alpha on 8 spread a pretty big deal. Considering the size of most battleships in this game. Maybe less so on ships like Yamato and Mass due to the insane torp protection, but still. That’s a lot of potential for floods especially for those end torps if you hit the areas where the torp protection isn’t. Even Hak with an ideal drop will MAYBE break 12k and she only gets two of the things per drop. Anything with decent torp protection and you’re lucky to hit over 9.
Cruisers it’s a different story, but hell dropping a cruiser with 8 of those things. I wish I had that in Hak.
FDR TBs deal about 10% more damage than Midway TBs if you eat all of them.
Had a match where our FdR saved the game by using that bendy cone of attack. Strike after strike he would come in on a tangent, set up up a parallel strike run then turn in without any loss of his AoE for incredible dev strikes.
Man, when you are desperate you call the eye in the sky to at least spot the other dd.
That pommern captain must be raging inside and screaming when you bomb him again and again XD
@Beltenebros he knew where it was, but he wanted me to spot it for him so he can save a star but by the time he takes his aim my squad will be long gone so yes he will see the halland but never gets to shoot it or at least get the kill.
@feras I know, you are right.
man how can you even think about making excuses for this ship by saying the midway should have dropped fighters. You know thats never going to happen in a random battle. This ship is straight up retarded for the game. All CVs are but this really takes the cake. Anything other than a complete condemnation of this ship is simply dishonest and a disservice to the community. You as a CC have a responsibility to say this.
This guy going “What can I send against a Halland? rockets? I won’t do any damage”
Ok, you might not, but Thunderer may be able to do something, this right here is the central problem of this game, with that dmg I would have said “Screw it, rocket planes to you sir”
