Question & Answers

Winning in VIP - Planes

Well, my ship does well enough in VIP, but I find myself struggling against the people with hordes of planes. Obviously the hackers with 50+ 18.1" guns are basically unbeatable, but I need tips for beating swarms of planes more easily as I only win against these guys about 40% of the time, compared to my usual 70%. Here are some approximate stats: 7000 toughness, 980 armor, 194.4 knots, 300K tons, 550m long, 80m wide, lots of 18.1" guns several 5" guns, and many torpedo tubes. Also, I do not have SPY-1 radar, or any planes of my own.

Get more anti- aircraft guns; they help.

Answer from: MAJESTIC BUDDER
Try getting more Anti -Air guns, they are very effective in many ways, A lot of which either I don't know, or don't understand.

Answer from: Lagoe
I have about 50 in my spare parts, but AA guns are very ineffective and lower armor a lot when you have almost 1000.

Answer from: Jbi22le
If you have spy 1 radar mk45 guns will help. you can engage planes from much farther that way.

Answer from: 4onen
AA Guns do drop armor a ton, but recently BC has made them actually AIM at the enemy aircraft! They have a much higher chance of hitting planes nowadays. However, keep in mind they have 0 armor and only 10 toughness.

Answer from: Lagoe
Okay, I might experiment with the new amazing aiming AA guns.

Answer from: psykoe777
Even if you dont have the spy-1 you can still shoot down air craft using mk45's from quite a distance

Use vulcan cannon it would be nuce

Posted: Posted: Jun 5, 2013

Answer from: Lagoe
Yes, but now with the RoF nerf it's very hard to keep up with the planes being launched so quickly, besides there's so many! I just want tips for dodging etc, not just "get AA guns" type stuff.

Posted: Posted: Jun 6, 2013

Answer from: MAJESTIC BUDDER
Try a sort of "hit and run" tactic.Or in this case,a "run and hit and run " tactic.Try shooting down as many planes as possible at long range,using Mk 45 5" guns.Then steer your ship all over the place to try and avoid the falling bombs and divebombers.Once the planes are dealt with,take a few seconds to take a look at your opponent's ship and weapons.Then,move in and fire 2 or 3 shots,then retreat,watch the results of your shots,then repeat.A rangefinder helps here to speed things up a little bit.I do this when faced by aircraft carriers or any other ship with planes,and it seems to work well enough.

Answer from: MAJESTIC BUDDER
But one more thing. How do you get that much armor and toughness, because it will help me alot. And my current stats are 565 armor, and 5500 toughness.

Posted: Posted: Jun 7, 2013

Answer from: Lagoe
Okay, thanks! I'll try that out soon.

Answer from: CMY
Get a very fast ship and reverse as soon as you see the planes. At the maximum speed, only fighters can catch you and they can be destroyed easily. After that slow down a bit so that you can see the bombers catch up and shoot them down slowly and speed up again if they come too close.

Answer from: CMY
I have a few ships that go at 190+ knots.

Posted: Posted: Jun 8, 2013

Answer from: TheSpiceDealer
For the tactic you are looking for, you need a fast (150-200) knottage so you can accelerate fast. Essentially do all the shooting you can and when the approach suddenly back up and turn erratically but not too capsize inducing. Hope it helps, and btw my ships best gun is only 30.5+ gun and I take out the stock Shinao on multiplayer!

Posted: Posted: Jun 9, 2013

Answer from: Lagoe
Hmm, okay, I might try that, but I'm not sure I'll be able to decelerate fast enough with my super barge, but I'll try.

Posted: Posted: Jun 10, 2013

Answer from: Lagoe
Well Budder, how do I get those stats? 400mm lightweight armor. Be as efficient as possible; use Angled Boilers (and only 9), not Gas Turbines, like I used to, to get armor higher, avoid decorations and putting too many MK45 guns on a ship, but most of all, no 600mm lightweight unless there is no possible way to manipulate 400mm armor to fit.

Posted: Posted: Jun 11, 2013

Answer from: MAJESTIC BUDDER
That worked better than I hoped! That increased my armor by 465 and stability and toughness. I left out the angled boilers, though.I don't really care about speed.

Posted: Posted: Jun 13, 2013

Answer from: Lagoe
What boilers do you currently use? Gas turbines are more space efficient and are just as powerful and the angled boilers, but once you get like 5+ of them they take up a massive percentage, meaning less armor blocks. Anyway, glad to have helped!

Answer from: Mavricks
Ok simple thing aa guns are pretty useless they drop your armor and toughness a lot also as we all know torpedo bombers are a ships worst nightmare aa guns don't really hit and by the time the aa gun shoots down the torpedo bomber it has already dropped its torpedo the best defence against enemy airplanes are lots of fighter planes they help a lot, if you don't want to spend lots of rare metal on planes and/or don't want to have runways that take up to much space try a missile launcher it is fairly effective in shooting down planes at close range with all its missiles if you don't want to spend money on rare metal get mk45 5 inch gun it is great at shooting down enemy airplanes from a fair range and is the cheapest and most effective way to protect yourself from enemy planes without having your own also mk45 5 inch gun has no armor and low strength so make sure to put some armor over your mk45 guns so shells don't destroy them, hope this helped and good luck in your future battles. And one last thing don't put any decoration blocks they don't help and just weaken your ship make your ship totally out of 400mm lightweight armor 3x2x1 for some speed plus high health and armor, my ship has 2500 toughness and 920 armor and if I ever get hit with torpedo by a torpedo bomber my ships health barely goes down although my speed goes down due to damaged gas turbine, this is all you need to know hope this helped you a lot. Also trying to outrun planes is useless they are much faster than you always, if your ship is tough enough and has enough armor you don't really need to dodge.

Posted: Posted: Jun 14, 2013

Answer from: Lagoe
Well, actually, large 400mm armor beats the 3x2x1 armor by 1/4. Ahh well, it seems like there's no simple solution to planes, as MK45 5" guns are very limited in AA capabilities.

Posted: Posted: Jun 15, 2013

Answer from: MAJESTIC BUDDER
I currently use 3 angled boilers, and I go a respectable 95.5 knots.

Posted: Posted: Jun 16, 2013

Answer from: Air Base Killer
I have a destroyer that is a WWII model so it has the 4 mk45.5 guns in the way a battleship would have its guns and it goes around 80-100 knots with 2 gas boilers and it has low toughness and armor but has 24 aa gins which kill anything and everything but i have to shoot the torp bombers as torps insta kill me but dive bombers cat hit me the aa guns kill the fighters quite quick and my speed makes me hard to hit even with 5" guns and i have a armored bow so i have actually rammed barges an dropped my depth charges on it to blow it up i can also kill subs really quick.

Answer from: The Real Lagoe
Woah, full stops man. For a start, I'm talking about VIP here. Even the 50 AA guns which I own still are mediocre against aircraft and lower my armor far too much. I don't see your point in 100 knot speed; that's really quite slow. Yeah, sadly, there is no solution to the hackers with 500+ planes. I've gotta live with them, just like we all do.

Posted: Posted: Jul 25, 2013

Answer from: Admiral
For the carriers reverse (get mk 45s ) and reverse and shoot the planes with the guns. Aa guns work for dive bombers.

Posted: Posted: Jul 26, 2013

Answer from: The Real Lagoe
If I reverse, then they reverse and I can never catch them. Then the battle times out and I lose because the fighters put some dents in me.
