The heavy cruiser of my heart.
Any confirmed figure on her in-game plane capacity yet?
90 planes. But since her first slot is large, she's better than Kaga for damage.
I called it. Tanaka would never let his waifu Kaga be outshined.
Interesting. While Tanaka is obviously protecting his waifu, at least it seems that Saratoga will at least be a competitive CV choice.
Depends on the planes being used. She had a max historical load of 110.
Let's pivot east, shall we?
Depending on conditions, a viable alternative to Kaga. We may be finally free of Kaga's reign of terror.
I tend to lean on Graf more than I should for certain types of missions to be fair. I'm not exactly somebody anybody should emulate if they desire success.
>If Sara went from 78 to 90
78 was her end of war carrying capacity. She had much higher capacities throughout the war depending on what planes she was carrying.
So which has a higher Love stat, Atago or Takao? Let's get this figured out now.
I want to finish E-5 already so I can start leveling her.
It reaches 312 when together.
Now we just wait while the new fanart flows in.
Then couldn't we have two different figures? One for storing USN planes and another for storing IJN and others? USN figures would be higher and require more bauxite as you got more planes to load.
Today's her birthday: say something nice about her.
Way to pull shit out of your ass. A quick check through the archives shows that the first ever mention of CTF or STF in /jp/ was in May 2015.
Shouldn't the girls, especially the battleship class wear heavyweight thick armor of some type.
Hell, a rogue .22 caliber would pierce the fabric and skin. How do they withstand torpedo explosions?
I see. I hope the fairies are cute.
She's a lovely girl, she singlehandedly crafted all of my Reppu except for the one I got from Taihou.
You really ought to check news more often.
Do you not know what "speculating" means, anon?
They're speculating she's a night aircraft carrier because of her dark colours and that she was refitted into one (although for a short time) irl. But the fact she won't be one means her performance means jack shit to me.
Carriers that attack at night typically have shit performance at night anon. The only reason CV hime can actually do shit at night is because her firepower is a lot higher than the hotels'. Even Wo Kai with their takoyakis deal scratch most if not all of the time.
They could always fix it so that carriers (except Graf because she's supposed to use her guns) use the same formula at night as day. But I guess that would be asking too much from the devs.
Their underpants are oddly high-legged.
It'll be a long time before the devs bother to change it, if at all.
So arguing whether a carrier should be able to attack at night is meaningless when they deal jack shit at night.
It's Hornet. Sara should know Enterprise due to their time together as the only carriers in the Pacific for awhile.
She is just friends with her. Akagi and Nagato too.
And Nimu tried to sink Sara and yet she had trouble remembering her too, face it it could be Enterprise or even Essex for all we know. Or hell, it could be Yorktown and she forgot what she looked like, happened with Nimu.
Cute. Really cute. Now that I want her she won't drop for me. Also, seems like Matsukaze will be a very fun addition judging from how Asakaze talk about her.
You buy screws?
I see. I never thought anyone would buy devmats.
Yeah, I don't have that. I just turn in monthly medals for screws and do daily.
I told all of you that she would have 90 planes.
36 fighters, 18 dive bombers(bombing squadron who equipped 1000lbs bombs), 18 dive bombers(scouting squadron with no or 500lbs bombs), 18 torpedo planes.
That was the most Sara every carried into combat during the war. The 107 planes was as an aircraft ferry and the 110 was pre-war in 1936 when they still used bi-planes.
That said as a Saratogafag I am quite happy with her. Good lines. Literally the best Carrier in the game defensive wise with 88 hp(the highest of all current carriers beating Zuikaku by 9 points), second highest armor(83 only beaten by Zuikaku, (highest AA at 93, this is the 1942 refit/remodel after all), decent base luck at 35(Only helps with accuracy and evasion on carriers as there are no cut-ins). You have the most survivable first slot for bombers at 36. She is pretty much a better Akagi who traded one firepower for better everything else.
Which American is better for apple paizuri?
Would you still marry Kashima even though she practically had a comiket dedicated to her?
That was fast, damn they're so cute together and the contrast is nice.
Yeah balance reasons, if they went with her spares she would have 110 at least, but that would obviously break the game in its current meta.
Why does Sara look so tall
Funny you defend her getting only 90 planes, when most other carriers are given a inflated number do to spare planes.
If they were being "historical" she would have that 110 plane loadout, since she did carry than many multiple times in the war.
Kashima is one of the sweetest ship girls, so yes.
>when most other carriers are given a inflated number do to spare planes.
The only ones who got that treatment were the ones who were added at launch. As soon as cranes came around in events, they went with historical numbers.
Save it for the future?
Ark Royal would be nice, Biplane fairies would be really cute. I'm still waiting for Royal Navy DDs.
RN DDs would be cute if they follow a similar design motiff to Warspite.
My RN desire list is:
I'd want Belfast to be Maya levels of aggressive and rude.
Except for Yammers. She's so pure that flowers grow out of her hair.
inb4 love hotel jokes
Warspite's throne is pretty much entirely because she is a Queen Elizabeth class and they have no intention of introducing HMS Queen Elizabeth
Her throne transforms into Battle Mode anyways which is cool. If she ever got a Kai2 it would be nice to see the transformed version.
My money is on Hermes for the next Brit capital ship. A lot of the Brit carrier names don't lend themselves well to being Shipgirl names and would be very difficult for Nips to pronounce.
In the meantime I expect to see Cruisers (HMS Belfast being the most likely) and Destroyers (could be anybody really).
Vanguard would be amazing, but I highly doubt we'll ever see her.
I'm hoping for Prince of Wales, I want her to get a second chance in the pacific theatre. Vanguard would be nice too but I doubt she would appear since she didn't really serve in WWII.
>Her throne transforms into Battle Mode anyways which is cool.
Oh, I didn't know that. Sound like fun.
This is the official look of her battle-mode
>In the meantime I expect to see Cruisers (HMS Belfast being the most likely) and Destroyers (could be anybody really).
I hope Ajax and Achilles get introduced together, Leander class a cute.
>Royal Navy DDs.
Needs to happen in time for a brutal ASW event.
That hotel is lovely and I'd love to take her to a love hotel. Her sister too.
Hermes would be nice, she can share the role of carrier mother with Houshou.
Oh, you mean that. I saw that before, didn't realize that was her battle-mode. Thanks.
There's just no pleasing some people.
Killed by Max.
W-why is she looking at me like that
I like Takao for her personality and her pretty fcae
Lebeposters are my favourite kind of posters.
yeah I saw those so in my head she has shimpan.
actually measure 32 designed panties would be hot as fuck.
can a drawfag work up a quick pair of panties with measure 32? I wanna see if this actually would work.
It was all emerging technology at that time, really.
The stuff that was added to any development was often only added to increase its potency rather than focus on crew comfort
Ejecting was relatively simply in those days as well as fighter planes cockpits could be easily removed.
>increased Saratoga's full-load displacement in 1945 to 49,552 long tons (50,347 t). Her overall length increased to 909.45 feet (277.2 m) and her beam, at the waterline, to 111 feet 9 inches (34.1 m), too wide to use the Panama Canal.
She became even taller during the war.
>Belfast to be Maya levels of aggressive and rude.
So she'd be an Irish separatist? I'd like to see that.
I'd also like to see a Maya esque USS Boston (or USS Massachusets for BBs)
That she is going to pay you a nightly visit.
SUBJECTIVELY true rankings:
Sarah Taggart > Croissant Teton >> Player B Kamikaze >>>> Yamakaze
>when she sees your dick
If the KanColle movie is good, Taneda-chan will return to work in 2017!
post irrelevant ships
This is the hell that awaits us at Bikini Atoll. I'm surprised we got a normal BB Hime and not Nagato instead.
I would agree since in theory it sounds like a bad idea but the colors aren't everywhere and leave room for the normal blonde hair, it makes a nice combination since they are in spots that won't make it look like she's just full of unnecessary color everywhere.
As soon as the quest required for her is done I'm scrapping the SHIT out of her.
She is really cute.
i love my cute irrelevant ship
Having been on other sites, it seems that the French are a bit annoyed with her appearance but are trying to pretend that she is better than she is.
>I'm surprised they aren't annoyed by the fact they chose a AV and not a BB
>can't accept that her design might be fundamentally flawed
No she's not.
not a draw fag, gave it a shot. Can't tell if they are amazing or hideous. please ignore her tree trunk thigh.
I don't understand why it works with Shimakaze but doesn't with Testicles, but if I had to guess I'd say it's because Shimakaze's red and blue isn't in he hair. Red and blue don't complement blonde, and vice versa.
I disagree. She's above Prinz and almost on par with Bisko for me.
>Putting Graf alongside Bismarck and pudding.
As I said earlier, I would agree that the idea of blonde + French flag colors is a bad combination, but the colors are placed in a way that looks really cute and the scarf compliments it pretty well.
>Were you not here when Pudding was added?
>It was soon after Nozaki-kun had ended so her VA was at the top of her popularity
VA popularity doesn't do much for me.
Good, not great.
>VA popularity doesn't do much for me.
You said you didn't understand why she was so popular, and I explained to you the initial reason for her popularity. From there it just grew.
Yuubari is sex
And very tight too it seems.
She wants to do a little this, but also some of that.
How do you explain to her that destroyers can't marry their commander?
Who is that supposed to be?
But I don't want to lie to one of my cute shimos.
He is an USfag
Multicolored hair like that goes straight from anime-tier to "furry oc". It's absolutely disgusting.
And your proof of that is? He could just be another baiter, not surprised since everyone keeps taking it, hell some brag about it in other threads how easily they come here to bait.
Pretty much this, its nothing new, but as I said its getting worse because mods just don't care anymore.
I was using the navy color swatch to be accurate
here is a more simple version with a pink scheme.
A light carrier should be fine then.
