When this ship launches an Airstrike (airstrikes launched via skills do not count): decreases this ship's aviation DMG taken by 40.0% (70%) for 8s. When this buff wears off: 40.0% (70%) chance to launch an additional Lv.1 (Lv.10) TBF Avenger airstrike (DMG is based on the skill's level.)

Second ship of the Independence class, Princeton, at your service. I was originally laid down as the seventh ship in the Cleveland class, Tallahassee. I fought a lot alongside Saratoga in the war, and though I was able to learn much from her, I wasn't able to make it through the Battle of Leyte Gulf... It'd be an honor to fight by her side once again.
I'm Princeton, Independence class. Tallahassee? I don't mind if you want to call me that.
You're finally here. Did you rest well?
Did you need something? Oh, it's fine. I wasn't doing anything special, just sorta letting my mind wander.
Sara? ...S-Saratoga is someone I admire very much. I wouldn't dare call her by her nickname.
Ahem! So you were asking about my hobbies? I like to read books and... study Saratoga's battle style. In terms of combat prowess, I sincerely believe that Saratoga is in a class of her own, and wouldn't lose even to Enterprise herself.
Do you understand what I mean? Even though Saratoga's usually a perky, high-spirited kind of girl, she's always looking out for others, even in battle. I've personally been saved by her many times. There's also how... Commander? Oh no, you fell asleep...
Commander, why do you have a picture of Saratoga? You picked it up from the floor?! Nooo! I can't believe I've screwed up so royally... You see, this is from my collection... Please keep this a secret from everyone else, I beg you!
I'm so lackluster compared to Saratoga, so why would you...? Err, not that I'm turning you down! If anything, I'd be willing to go through thick and thin with you, as long as you're fine with someone like me... Yes, let's be together!
All right, we'll now start our meeting to review and discuss Saratoga's battle style! There will be another one right after to appreciate her newest single! Commander, make sure to keep me company until the end!
