“Until now, the Saipan loadout (Mk7 mod1) consisted of 2 fighter squadron and 3 TB squadrons (consisting of 3 planes each)
Her loadout will be modified to give players two options:
- Mk7 mod1: 3 fighter squadrons (3 planes each), 1 DB squadron (8 planes)
- Mk8 mod1: 2 fighter squadrons (3 planes each), 2 TB squadrons (3 planes each)
The hangar capacity will remain as it currently is.
The reason behind these changes was that, in her first iteration, Saipan could be played efficiently even by players who haven’t touched CV’s at all. Her first setup was adequate for a tier 8 ship, but not for tier 7. Now, we will make sure the new variants are in line with tier 7, as it was originally planned.”
