The "73" is clearly Gambier Bay's hull number. She wears a camo-shirt which appears to be the MS 32 15 A, with the colors consisting of 5-P Light/Dark grey, 5-L Light grey, 5-O Silver, BK Black, while her deck was painted 20-B Deck-blue.  Her other camofloge was the MS 32.


She has a timid, scaredy cat personality, easily terrified in frontlines and especially at night battle. She also has low self-confidence and her sinking line also shows that she is quite pessimistic.

In the fandom she is portryed as having trouble reading maps and having a poor sense of direction in general so She gets lost quite easly. See Danbooru Pool "Lost Gambier Bay".


Requires a total ASW value of 65+ and at least 1 plane with +7 or above ASW value to do OASW.


  • USS Gambier Bay (CVE-73) was the 19th ship of the Casablanca-class escort carriers, laid down and launched in 1943.
  • Gambier Bay was sunk by naval gunfire from an unidentified ship (often presumed to be Chikuma or Yamato), making her the only US aircraft carrier sunk in surface combat during the war.
  • She is probably among the deepest-known wreck, due to the fact she was sunk directly above the Philippine Trench during the Battle in Samar. Just like Choukai , she probably lies in over 26,000 feet (~8,000 meters) of water, well beyond the reach of manned submersibles. Her Approximate Sinking Location 11°46′N 126°09′E.
    • Johnston and Samuel B. Roberts were found within the Philippine Deep as well by DSV Limiting Factor, and its partner EYOS Expeditions has hinted ships like Gambier Bay and USS Hoel may be within the vicinity as well.[1] DSV Limiting Factor also attempted to locate Gambier Bay during the expedition that located Samuel B. Roberts, but is currently unable to discover her sinking location.[2]
