Hey Wacko17 JedMad here glad to make your acquaintance. It looks like one of my fondest wishes is finally coming true, the appearance in the game of the Yorktown class Aircraft Carriers. I hear that the Enterprise will be a premium ship, no problem, it should be. I would still like to see the Yorktown come in as an alternative Carrier at Tier 7 or 8 so those of us who cannot afford to spend actual money on the game can enjoy running one too. I am a disabled Naval Vietnam Veteran living on a very meager pension, so the only way I can get into the higher tiers or get some of the newer ships is if I can earn them. The other issue I have been concerned with is the non-historical plane load outs on the American CV's. The typical load outs are either (1F,1TB,1DB); (0F, 1TB, 2 or 3DB); or (2 or 3F, 0TB, and 1 to 3DB). Historically, No US Carrier at anytime was operational without any Fighters aboard and smaller Carriers in particular switched from carrying Dive Bombers to Torpedo bombers with a fighter squadron aboard as the war progressed. You have accurately reflected this in the case of the Saipan. Something similar should be an option with other carriers starting with the Bogue. It would make Carrier play much more enjoyable and realistic. What do you think would help to rectify these matters?
