Planning out a CV crew, going to level up one seaman, four fighters, and four DBs to start with (along with a few gunners and supports of course).
I have a few questions about stats:
(1) Heard a rumour that the BO acts as a seaman. Not sure what to think of this since seamen don't stack well, but is it worth finding a BO with decent repair/restore and decent fighter/bomber stats? I was originally just going to go with +13 pot and +11 rep/rst for my CV BO.
(2) Seaman fighter/bomber stats: my options are 11/11, 12/9 or 10/12 for a mixed fighter/bomber CV. What do you guys suggest? I'm leaning toward 12/9 since the DBs will probably be strong enough already, though I would like to have a use for the 11/11 sailor.
(3) I have a pair of SN 11/11 base gunners already, and I'd like to level a pair of 9/11/x/11 "AA" gunners too, partly for use on the CV. I will be leveling at least one engineer and repair on my backup/leveling crew, but which would be better to use on the CV?
I realize some of the stat combinations I listed aren't the very best, but these are all sailors I already have rolled. I'd love to have a 12/11 seaman and 10/12/x/11 AA gunners, but I'm working with what I have.
