AP bombs are more skill-demanding for successful use than HE bombs, but their efficiency is higher, if used correctly. The updated aircraft carriers constitute a relatively young class in the game, and most players have only recently learned how to use AP bombs correctly. Consequently, the overall damage dealt by this type of armament has become too high. We, therefore, decided to systematically lower the maximum damage of AP bombs, but without lowering their penetration. We will watch individual performance of the ships, and will take additional actions if needed.

VIII Shōkaku:
* Armor penetration of researchable bombers' bombs increased by 8%.
VIII Graf ZeppelinVIII Graf Zeppelin B:
