I posed this question a few days ago but wanted to more fully understand if bot CVs will be appearing in 0.8.0 Coop Battles. I saw on the test server that when a friendly CV showed up in a Coop battle there was no opposing bot CV. Will that be the case for 0.8.0 until WG has the AI worked out for these CVs? (Thanks)

Anybody who has gone into operations with CVs knows the answer. They just simply ramp up the bot AA to Des Moines level for any bot AA. In Raptor Rescue, I can't take my Indy planes anywhere near that Myoko or Aoba or it'll wipe my planes out in 2 seconds.

FYI - I just read on the 0.8.0 Development posting that a CV AI rework is "in progress" but it is unclear if it will be ready for 0.8.0 or not. I guess this is the most definitive information we have at the moment.

As you noted, they haven't finished implementing the updated AI. You can't even select a Bot carrier in the Training room. Currently a Battleship replaces a CV on the red team in co-op battles.

Off-Topic:
That makes battles at lower tiers very interesting since Tier 4 CVs have trouble inflicting meaningful damage. In all the T4 co-op games I played in Hosho/Langely, I would have a train of at least 2 or 3 red Battleships following my CV around since I would be the only one left alive. A Battleship at Tier 4 is more useful than a CV and the extra BB makes short work of your team.

I also read that no CVs would be in Tier I through III battles. While I was obviously not surprised by the I and II limits the Tier IIO comment was eye-catching. One the biggest issues I have with CVs with Tier III ships is their utter absence of any AA. I was once repeated attacked by a bot CV 13 times when in a Konig Albert and could only shoot down a plane or two (at most) during each attack. That will make Tier III life a little easier.

I was wondering this as well.

Just realized why they removed most carriers from the scenarios. They've clearly had this plan in the pipe for awhile.
