Developed as a successor to the "Albacore", which was in turn a successor to the Country of Tea's pride, the "Swordfish". This is an improved ASW patrol aircraft version of the torpedo bomber bearing the name "Barracuda".
This aircraft is equipped with ASW equipment to suppress U-boats. After the war, it had an ASW RADAR installed as part of an upgrade to be an ASW patrol aircraft.
Its performance will increase when equipped on British ships.


Torpedo Bombers are one of the main types of plane used by CV(B/L). Their main role is to do damages during the Airstrike, with their "Torpedo" Torpedo Attack stat being the most important factor in this regard. Dive Bombers are additionally needed for dealing damages during day Shelling, especially for Aircraft Carrier Cut-Ins (CVCI).

Is an ASW Aircraft.
