Hakuryu New Alternative Torpedo Bombers World of Warships Devs

Hakuryu's alternative torpedo bombers

Based on the results of the Public test of 0.8.4, we decided to revert changes to the J5N Tenrai Type 91 mod. 8 torpedo bombers of the Japanese tier X Hakuryu aircraft carrier. Today we would like to tell you about the reasons behind this.

The main weakness of the carriers in game, including Hakuryu, is a group of ships protecting each other from planes. In the current state on the main server, torpedo bombers with a large attack range are much less efficient than standard torpedo bombers. But changing the parameters of the J5N Tenrai Type 91 mod. 8 showed that, as they strengthened, the Japanese aircraft carrier loses this shortcoming and becomes a universal ship, capable of attacking any target. In order to balance such settings, it is necessary to almost completely change the parameters of the aircraft carrier and all its squadrons, changing the whole concept of the ship.

Therefore, we decided to remove the possibility of installing J5N Tenrai Type 91 mod 8 torpedos in several updates for Hakuryu and compensate the costs of their research and purchase. Details will be published on the official game website.
