Is there any chance, or possible plans to get the Aquila into the game? I would love to see some more diversity in the carrier class. With only 3 nations that can fill out a complete tech tree for the class I would really enjoy some "off the radar" aircraft carriers in the game. Obviously they would have to be prems, but i think that it would be amazing to see more than 2 different CV's (soon to be 3 with UK eventually) any given tier, minus the GZ now.

No one who would know anything would be permitted to discuss it.  Could she get in the game eventually?  Sure, I see no reason why not. I'd consider buying one.

If/When she got added, I wouldn't be surprised if her special trait ended up being her bombers functioning as fighters when empty since they were basically just normal fighters with torpedoes or bombs slung underneath.

her TBs may be stukas but the DBs really should be RE 2001 CBs and I say here tier should be VII or VI most likely the latter

I'm okay with that,  they'd just have to be a bit worse at it then dedicated fighters.

She had hangar space for 51 aircraft, but this was because the Italians lacked folding wings, after it was too late they did develop 10 folding wing aircraft, if they had been able to fully stock the Aquila with these planes her hanger capacity would have went to 66.

5 nations. France and Germany also have enough designs for a carrier tech tree along with Great Britain and the existing Japanese and American lines.

Yes more carriers are good news, but there are others I would rather have before this.

Same here. But only thing to do wait & discuss on the forum until they come.
