American aircraft carrier Essex has returned to the game for testing, accompanied by Yorktown. These ships will be added to the Tech Tree in the future. Independence, a Tier VI aircraft carrier, will also enter testing in one of the upcoming updates. Details about her will be available later.

New carriers have lesser attacking potential but can provide more utility with their new tools. Both Yorktown and Essex have access to one standard squadron (torpedo bombers) and two tactical squadrons (attack aircraft and dive bombers) with jet-assisted take-off.

Their torpedo bombers need less time to reach the optimal spread when dropping torpedoes compared to other carriers and, especially, other American carriers. While a single torpedo has a relatively low damage, it is compensated by the high number of torpedoes and their above-average speed.

Their attack aircraft uses HE-rockets with high penetration and fire chance but the number of rockets per payload is relatively low. As for the dive bombers, they have a relatively low penetration and fire chance, but there are numerous bombs per payload.

Both tactical squadrons can provide cover for their allies using the Smoke Curtain Generator consumable that was recently introduced in Concealed Maneuvers.

Additionally, these ships can call for a Patrol Fighter that arrives much faster, compared to most carriers, however, its spotting range is relatively low, similar to Bearn's Fighter. As a result, these fighters take more of a defensive and interceptive role.
