Return them back to their original circling ranges. These things are [edited]useless now. Can't even use them as torpedo/DD protection anymore because they stay too [edited]close to the ship. Stop nerfing battleships already.

Of course, it's intentional as they don't spot torps any more. Their primary purpose is as fighters to umm you know fight off aircraft and the spotter plane's primary purpose is to spot shells so you can fire farther and more accurately into smoke and over mountains.

Spotting... ah... amazing how planes launched from a BB's catapult has magic eyes and can see ships carrier launched aircraft cannot. Gaze at the spectacle. Catch your breath from the splendor of it all...

They don't spot torpedoes anymore anyway, that functionality was removed from ALL planes in 0.8.0.

Personally I do think catapult fighters could use at least a SLIGHT range buff compared to what they are now.

In most cases a CV can go in and drop you and come out with nearly no loss, as they come in and out of the fighters measly 3km range before they even have a chance to aggro.

Perhaps bringing the range of catapult fighters up to 3.5 or 4km could help but this is something that at least needs to be looked into as balancing continues.
