I like the idea, but how would anti-sub patrols work? And what if each combat air patrol consisted of 2 planes no matter what nation. The difference would be how many slots each ship would get. A slot alows for a one CAP or ASP. For example the midway could have 4 slots, and can choose how many squads of CAP and ASP they want. Also, what if we added in a scout patrol that would fly in ever growing circles around the carrier, spotting for it. CV captains could mix and match their flight modes to match with what they chose in their slots. For example, A strike Midway probably would choose 3 CAP and 1 SP. This would prevent an alpha strike and alow the fighters to escort the bombers without fear of retaliation.
If there are going to be anti-submarine patrols, then there are probably going to be submarines.
Reportedly from the September 19th interview with Daniil Volkov:
"We are seriously looking into the submarines, as they are in popular demand. They will probably not come in 2017, but likely at a later date. One alternative considered is having submarines as bots."
However, the opposite holds true as well: if there are no submarines, then there probably won't be ASW patrols.
