British CVs Arrive to WoWS in 0.8.1.

British Aircraft Carriers
Since the time of the Closed Beta Test, there were only two researchable branches of aircraft carriers in World of Warships—Japanese and American. They will soon be joined by British aircraft carriers, and you can obtain early access to these ships in Update 0.8.1.

Distinctive Features of British Aircraft

British planes have more HP than their same-tier counterparts, and boosting that advantage will enable you to carry out daring attacks against ships with strong AA defenses. To do so, we recommend equipping the Aircraft Armor and Survivability Expert Commander skills and upgrades which can be mounted in slot 4.
British bombers drop their payloads in a different manner, i.e. by delivering a large number of bombs using a high-level bombing technique. Their dispersion ellipse is stretched in parallel to the course of the squadron, and is larger in size than the dispersion ellipses of bombers of other nations. This feature allows you to deal massive damage on a well-performed approach to your target.
British attack aircraft carry a large number of rockets, and their torpedo bombers are equipped with powerful, yet short-range, torpedoes. British torpedo bombers have good maneuverability but a relatively low cruising speed, which allows them to make an almost immediate U-turn by using Boost to slow down.
Please note that aircraft carriers are still subject to balance tweaks. Therefore, the technical characteristics of U.K. carriers may change with future updates. Balance tweaks affecting aircraft carriers can potentially be made after the carriers hit the live servers. This decision rests on the fact that, during tests, players often adopt a play style that’s different from the way they act on the live servers. This makes it impossible to bring balancing factors to their final state during testing. In making any changes, we would very much appreciate your feedback and support!
And in a Future Patch
IMPORTANT! Because these Ships are still being tested, the information in this Article is tentative and reflects the state of game development at the time of its publication. Changes and new features may be removed entirely or implemented differently by the time the update goes live. Screenshots, specific values of certain characteristics, and details of in-game mechanics will not necessarily be relevant after theses Ships are released.
