“AIRCRAFT CARRIER BATTLE 1942” is a Real-Time Simulated Strategy Game of the naval battle of aircraft carriers in the Pacific Theater of World War II between the Imperial Japanese Navy and naval and air forces from the United States.

The aircraft carrier task force was a quite new war potential. Although its offensive power was extremely high, the defensive ability was poor.

Since no one knew how to utilize this war potential at that time, there might be
various possibilities in the short term.

As a commander of the air craft carrier task force, make strategic decisions and lead your task force to the victory.

In this game, you will play the following important roles in the every layer.

1) Commander of aircraft carrier task force - Make a Decision
2) Captain of aircraft carrier – Maneuver your aircraft carrier
3) Pilot of Search Plane – Search Enemy’s aircraft task force
4) Leader of Torpedo Attack Group - Attack enemy aircraft by torpedoes
5) Leader of Bomber Attack Group - Attack enemy aircraft by dive bombs
6) Leader of Intercept Fighter Group – Intercept enemy attack group

What’s New

Version 1.5

This app has been updated by Apple to use the latest Apple signing certificate.

As many users mentioned, we believe that this is the most realistic real-time simulation game of the naval battle of aircraft carriers in the Pacific Theater of World War II. Based on feedbacks from user around the world, we enhanced this application as Version 1.5. Please enjoy this new version.

1. New features


This is a battle mode that players can easily experience the aircraft carrier battle In this mode,
In the battle of two regular aircraft carriers that are the same as the battlefield of the Coral Sea, the player must sink down the enemy aircraft carrier within the limited battle time as the captain of the attacking unit arriving above the enemy fleet.
As a leader of torpedo attack group or a leader of bomber attack group, you must destroy enemy aircraft carriers in a few minutes.
Since this mode is completely independent from other battle warfare modes, there is no consumption of gold, loss of ship, etc.
Enjoy this mode as a easy battle experience.

(2) Interception by fleet escort fighter plane

As the leader pilot of a fleet escort fighter, you can shoot down enemy attack units by manual operation. By quickly discovering enemy attack units approaching over the fleet and shooting down as many attack units as possible, it is possible to lower the risk of the fleet.

In connection with this function, we added two items that can be earned by watching advertisement video.

#1: Anti-aircraft radar for fleet defense:
You will be able to discover enemy attack unit positions early.
#2: Unlimited machine gun bullet number of escort fighter aircraft

By effectively utilizing these functions, you can even annihilate enemy attack
units. Please protect your important aircraft carrier.

(3) Manual operation of the anti-aircraft machine-gun of aircraft carrier

We have made it possible for you to manually fire shot machine-guns located in four positions; in front of the aircraft carrier, in front of the starboard, behind the port, and behind the starboard.
In addition, view control from the bridge was also made possible.
Although it is a bit difficult, it is possible to shoot down several machines.
Please give me the final defense of an important aircraft carrier.

2. Conclusion

With this function enhancement, we think that the important role of each layer in the naval battle between the aircraft carrier units can be realized as real-time simulation in the application.
Please keep trying to annihilate the aircraft carrier of enemy troops while protecting your important aircraft carriers anyhow.

Help Locate Enemy Ships ! ! !

This is probably one of the best and most realistic open naval battle apps available. Great graphics and variety of actions: locating enemy shipping, attacking shipping; dive bomb or torpedo, recovering flight, defending shipping,...etc.)
An easy 4-5 stars but with One Accommodation ! ! ! PLEASE MAKE IT EASIER TO LOCATE ENEMY SO BATTLE/EXCHANGE CAN EVEN HAPPEN, in the first place ! ! !

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback. I understand your requests. I made the searching enemy process too much realistic because it is the most important and thrilling scene. However, the number of people who play is very small, so I'm considering adding an easy mode.

I am utterly speechless about this app. It has been several years since I could find a free "aircraft carrier simulation" game. Although this does not accurately "simulate" aircraft carriers, this one has not disappointed me. I would, however, suggest more action; like if you shoot down enemy attacking aircraft yourself, or handle an AAA gun. That would be tremendous. Thank you for your efforts.

P.S. -if you can, correct the spelling errors

Most realistic Carrier game out there!

Only complaints are that when you pretty much always have to be the Japanese and when the enemy begins their attack runs you are automatically moved to the carrier from you interceptor squadron. Other than that a great game.
