When do you typically use Kamikazes?

  • Customizer

    I was wondering when do you guys typically use your kamikaze attacks.

  • never really had  A chance to use them…i really dont like throwing planes away…and its no guarantee of a hit either

  • I dont think any plane throwing is necessary. These are just free attacks with a ‘2’ AFAIK.

  • Yeah, you don’t lose any aircraft when using a Kamikaze attack. That’s what the little Kamikaze cardboard pieces are for.

  • I never use them…

    …because I’m never losin as Japan.  😉

    No, seriously.  My general philosophy is to use them as soon as possible on targets of value, which is always a carrier, or sometimes another ship.  AAP40 is a game of balance.  If you’re close to even but starting to have the tide turn against you.  A few critical free hits may swing it back.  If you wait too long, the difference is not enough to swing an overwhelming wave.

    Ah…so you do not lose the aircraft.

    Perhaps different strategy then.


  • If you want to make sure the carrier will sink you will need to use all 6 Kamikazes on that same carrier. In that case I think it is more rational to use the Kamikaze on cruisers. Attack a cruiser with two kamikazes and you might sink a 12 IPC unit. Even an 8 IPC destroyer is a better target than a carrier.
