I, no, make that we, know that Royal Navy CVs are ways off. But hey--I thought why not do some speculation. For attack group size, it would be large (7-8 planes,) with only 2-3 squads per carrier, and the planes have large HP pools. As for types, there'd be obviously the Fairey Swordfish and Albacore, and later the Barracuda for torpedo planes, the Blackburn Skua for a dive bomber, and the Fairey Fulmar and Firefly for fighters, along with the Supermarine Seafire. I think a few lend-lease types (Avenger, Martlet, Hellcat, Corsair) might go into the mix. At the higher tiers, there might also be twin-engine Sea Mosquitos and Sea Hornets.
That's what I think might be coming for the Royal Navy.
What do you think?
