Why is Bismarck missing her floatplane?

If you take a look at the Bismarck, you can be fooled to think she doesn't carry a floatplane. But she does, the plane materializes out of thin air when you launch it. Here's the catch, the Tirpitz has her floatplane rendered.

 

So why is this a thing? I'm quite confused.

As I remember it, a while back after a patch there was a funny bug where the floatplanes for both Bismarck sisters were floating over the water instead of sitting on the catapult. They were removed, iirc, while WG looked into it. Best guess of mine is they forgot to put it back on Bisko whilst Tirpitz, as a premium, got it back.

Also, why don't we see other ships spotters/fighters when they are not airborne?

You running on high graphics? That could be why.

Ironic.

It's something they did away with before OBT, if I remember correctly.  In CBT, you could look at a ship and see the plane.  A quick glance at the CV would tell you what load out he/she was using.

 

I'm running on max graphics and do not see other ship planes until they are launched.:(

I went back and checked myself. I was right on Tirpitz: Update 0.5.10 (ironically introducing the KM BBs) broke its catapult plane to hover over the water, but that was fixed in the post-patch bug update 0.5.10.1. However, looking back over the Bismarck previews, especially
, I can't find evidence that the Bismarck ever had a plane shown.
