Cannot figure out you have a plane feature but it is not shown and you don't have that feature but the plane is shown.   Strange.  

BB Texas has a spotting plane but in port and in battle it is not shown on the catapult.  When launched, it comes out of the ships body.  

CA Seattle (B) in port has a fighter plane but no options listed on Ammo&Consumables / Upgrades.

Seattle has radar, not spotter. Don't know why the plane isn't there on the TX, may be a modeling thing. Otherwise the planes are a consumable that has to balanced, and the plane models are historical. They may not line up. My favorite is the landing. That plane comes zipping in and that pilot just lands it right on that catapult, sometimes the hanger crew is out there and has that plane stowed instantly, regardless of the shells that might be raining in. Also, somehow that catapult is more durable than the gun turrets, maybe they need to switch some armor around.

As you know, the plane on Texas is new. I'm sure once wg finds out it will be fixed

Texas/new york and Wyoming both earned spotter aircraft in the recent update, my guess is (I don't have any of those ships currently) they didn’t change the graphics on the ships much. It’s also probably bugged along with all the other things in this update

The catapult is modeled onto the turret, but I assume they haven't figured out how to make the plane properly launch from the turret yet, so for now it's launching from center-mass. Once they figure out how not to launch poor Jimmy into the superstructure they will probably make it so the plane exists physically on the turret.

It's a stealth spotter.

Guess they were busy with the Royal Navy launch to update the graphics for the BB.
