russia flagpremium cv Chkalov Soviet Premium Tier VIII Aircraft Carrier 1939

The project of a high-speed aircraft carrier armed with dual-purpose main battery artillery that was developed in the U.S.S.R. in late 1930s (Project 71B).

Chkalov Flag
Famous Soviet pilot Valery Chkalov (1904–1938) graduated from aviation school and started his service in a fighter squadron in 1924. That same year, a special sleeve insignia was introduced for the aircrew of the Soviet Air Forces and Navy's Air Force, and it was worn until 1943.

> Number of aircraft on deck increased from 9 to 15{alertInfo}

Key Features
The Chkalov is armed with aviation similar to the researchable Soviet Tier X aircraft carrier Admiral Nakhimov.
> Each squadron consists of only 6 planes.
The ship is also distinguished from other Soviet aircraft carriers by its available selection of squadrons:
> Torpedo bombers,
> Skip bombers,
> Dive bombers.{alertInfo}

Tactics
The Chkalov is best used for dealing damage to low-mobility targets and supporting allies in the fight for Key Areas.{alertSuccess}

Cons
Squadrons are vulnerable to AA due to their low HP, and each lost plane reduces the total damage that can be dealt to the enemy.
The new ships' skip bombers and torpedo bombers can use their long range to avoid staying too long in the enemy AA zone. However, in this case, it will be easier for enemy ships to evade attack.{alertError}

Joby

Real name Joe, The Joby part is from my surname. I was accepted as a CC for WoWs in March 2019, I enjoy giving stuff away, so it's all worthwhile. I have been playing WoWs since Sept 2015, mostly in the evenings with my kid brother, and TBH, we have some great times. I try to help others to learn the game from start, also try to give advice on recruiting new players so they can get some good rewards, for the recruiter and the new player. I hope you enjoy my blog, if so, then I am a happy man.

Thank you for your comment, it will be added asap, as long as you are not showing as anonymous/unknown.
