Yes, must have Enterprise.  CVN-80 it is.

Although Wikipedia gets the most info right It only takes one guy to edit so that its incorrect. 

 

Would you believe the US Navy?

And for the record, Midway was Midway Magic, FDR was Filthy Dirty Rusty and Coral Sea was Ageless Warrior.

At one time or another all 3 of the class served in the Pacific Fleet.  In the 1980's Coral Sea (CV 43) transferred to the Atlantic Fleet and was based here in Norfolk Virginia.  She was the first carrier to deploy with an all F/A-18 air wing and towards the end of her service life was "hogged" (hull twisted) to the point where her flightdeck was higher amidships than at either end.  In smooth seas planes could launch traveling downhill and land uphill.  Not kidding, the twist was easily seen from the plane guard destroyer position following her (that was me for a while.)

 

Midway (CV-41) has been preserved as a museum ship in San Diego California.  Frankin Roosevelt (CV-42) and Coral Sea (CV-43) have been recycled (scrapped.)

And for the record the Essex class carrier Hornet (CV-12) is a museum ship berthed in Alameda California and Lexington (CV-16) is berthed in Corpus Christi Texas.

 

The carrier Saratoga (CV-60) has been scrapped in Brownsville Texas as has Ranger (CV-61,) and Enterprise (CVN-65) is dry docked in Newport News Virginia, the same dock where she was born in 1960,  being "defueled" and partially dismantled prior to being towed to Bremerton Washington later this year where her reactors will be removed and scrapping completed.  There was no question of preserving Enterprise as a museum due to the continuing hazard of radioactive contamination presented by her (now ancient and thoroughly radioactive) reactors.  Removal of the reactors and associated contaminated structure will so weaken the remaining hull that "shoring it up" would cost far more than any preservation society could ever hope to cover.

 

If it's any consolation to fans of Enterprise, her eight reactors will be stored away in Hannaford Washington until the radiation decays to safe levels ... about 10 to 50 thousand years.

 

The last ship I want to cover here is Langley (CVL-27,) an Independence class light carrier.  Decommissioned by the USN after WWII she served with the French Navy for roughly 10 years and then was returned to the US in 1963.  She was scrapped in Baltimore Maryland in 1964

 

I think that pretty much covers the remaining ship names associated with pre-World War II USN carriers.

Simmilarly, I would like to play the other USS Enterprise CVN-65. Both of these are unlikely though, so I would be happy if they just put in the WW2 Enterprise, premium or not.

I just wanted to say thanks for all off you comments. And now my favorite American Warship (Sorry USS Constitution)  USS Enterprise I coming I feel like maybe just maybe we helped wargaming make that decision. Many thanks.
