Taihō - Japanese Tier X Aircraft Carrier 1944


flagship icon Taihō - Japanese Tier X Aircraft Carrier 1944

The original design of the "improved Shōkaku" class ship, initially projected under the 1939 program, underwent significant changes and was transformed beyond recognition during the preliminary design phase. The final design was advanced and departed from the usual characteristics of the Japanese Navy. It featured an armored flight deck integrated into the hull and a closed bow, which were unique and distinctive elements. Taihō, laid down in 1941, became the flagship of the Imperial Navy's 1st Carrier Division upon entering service. While participating in the Battle of the Mariana Islands, she received a fatal torpedo hit from submarine USS Albacore.

Key Features

Taiho's tactical attack aircraft will be equipped with the Smoke Curtain Generator. They are armed with rockets from Shokaku attack aircraft but with reduced damage. The ship also has stock Hakuryu torpedo bombers with reduced cruising speed and Hakuryu researchable dive bombers with an increased number of aircraft on deck. Taiho's damage focus was shifted from torpedo bombers to the other squadrons, compared to Hakuryu.

Smoke Curtain Generator

flag X Taihō can set a smoke screen using attack aircraft equipped with Smoke Curtain Generator. It works in the same way as the smoke generators on other ships. To boost its efficiency, the aircraft carrier uses a tactical squadronof attack aircraft.

*A tactical squadron is equipped with boosters, consists of one attack flight, and doesn't return to the aircraft carrier after an attack.
