the info here is based on a rough (tired) guess, current in game flight sizes and bit of attempt of balancing and what started out about 3 hours ago arguing about wasp or hornet being on doolittle raid and deciding to cover both :)

As of fan of the US Navy I want all of these old CV's but how can you not ask for Yorktown?

Would love to see either Yorktown, Hornet or Soryu in their Midway configuration as Tier 6 premiums.  Wildcats/Dauntlesses/Devastators and Zeros/Kates/Vals.  Just tune the regen and flight sizes to align with Ranger and Ryujo.  Not looking for anything special or unique, just a historical config at a tier that doesnt have enough CV premiums.

think part of yorktowns problem being in game is she used to be the T8? techline

enterprise has a massive reputation in a lot of media, not least cause of her enduring name in star trek, but the real world ships, including a space shuttle and had the reputation of simply not dying

hornet did the doolittle raid a major morale booster to america as a whole and possibly a key motivator for several japanese raids occuring faster than they otherwise might leading to their failure

what did yorktown do that would make her functionally different to her sisters?

which hronet having slightly weaker AA guns and carpet bombers and enterprise, having a massive wing of fighters and AP dive bombers
