Analysis

Priority:

  • Kai: Medium
She will likely be the first carrier that you come across because she is a quest reward. Her important stats being slightly better than average means she will serve you well as an early carrier. Her good slot count is let down by her less than ideal slot distribution. The two medium slots being only 20 and positioned on top means she risks getting them emptied when facing heavy enemy anti-air. In that situation, she can lose her ability to perform artillery spotting and plane proficiency bonuses.
  • Kai Ni: Low
She doesn't really improve much slot-wise at Kai Ni. However, she does gain a 5th slot that gives her incredible flexibility. She can easily find room for recon planes to help LoS or other utility equipment like radar for routing in events. She can also contribute a lot more fighter support than other carriers while still maintaining strike power. Her increase to firepower is also another welcome buff. However, her remodel is expensive and not worth the cost for most players. Her Kai Ni is strictly a late-game upgrade.
  • Kai Ni E: Low
Her top two slots actually get worse at Kai Ni E. The slots are quite small and will be prone to getting emptied by heavy enemy anti-air. She is a powerful night carrier that can hit the night battle cap with ease while still maintaining strike power during the day. That said, her niche role means it is better to keep her in her Kai Ni form unless you have the night planes required to make her useful.
  • Kai Ni Go: Low
Her slots get neutered and will be prone to getting emptied by heavy enemy anti-air. The ability to perform (O)ASW can be useful in some situations, but can impede her ability to conduct surface combat quite a bit sicne she prioritizes targetting submarines. Her Jet capabilities are nothing to write home about as she lacks the slot size to actually make them hit hard and survive reliably in heavy AA maps. That said, her niche role means it is better to keep her in her Kai Ni form unless you have the night planes required to make her useful in Kai 2 E form.

  1. She was actually part of the 3rd amendment to the Eight-Eight Fleet plan. She was laid down 4th as a Tosa-class battleship but the 3rd to be launched.
  2. Kaga was originally intended to be built as a battleship, although the construction was halted by Washington treaty in 1921. Kaga was set to be scrapped for metal required to convert Akagi and Amagi from battlecruisers into carriers. During construction Amagi was damaged beyond repair in the great Kanto Earthquake (1923) and Kaga took her place for conversion.
  3. CarDiv5 is Shoukaku and Zuikaku that have a running rivalry with CarDiv1 - Akagi and Kaga.
  4. This line is shared with expedition selection, resource collection, instant repair and development.
  5. Kaga uses a formal 'you' here.
  6. Kaga historically sunk one day before Akagi.

Trivia

  • She is named after Kaga Province, modern day Ishikawa Prefecture.
  • Scuttled after being heavily damaged by a US air attack at the Battle of Midway, 4 June 1942
  • Wreckage possibly found in late 1999. Sadly, no further expeditions have been made.
  • Originally designed as a Tosa-class Battleship, she was converted into a carrier after the signing of the Washington Naval Treaty in 1921.
  • In the 4koma, she is often portrayed as irrationally protective of Akagi from the destroyers that historically scuttled her (who were also their escorts).  Historically, all four CarDiv1 and CarDiv2 carriers (Akagi, Hiryuu, Souryuu and herself) were scuttled in the Battle of Midway by Japanese destroyers' torpedoes after being heavily damaged by air attacks. During WW2, scuttling (intentional allied sinking to prevent capture) was very common, and the IJN rarely took prisoners or allowed themselves to be POWs.
  • In the 4koma, she gives off excessive levels of body heat, which she can be very sensitive about. This is a reflection of one of the historic Kaga's exhaust layouts overheating the flight deck and causing the rear crew quarters to be near uninhabitable.
    • Beginning in the 1910s, nations all over the world experimented with ship designs & layouts culminating in the aircraft carrier. Issues such as exhaust layout, aircraft elevators, command bridges, ship weaponry, and so forth vastly differed between classes and even within classes.
