There is already a tier 6 CV.  It's called a Ranger.   That is more than enough.

sorry, I forgot to put the word *Premium*

Independence would be the class ship, so Princeton?

At least then we’d have a T6 with Hellcats, Dauntless’, and Avengers.

Bring back the Bogue uptiered to tier 6 with faster aircraft servicing time.

Like a US Ark Royal but not as fast as the latter since it has t5 planes not t4.

Unfamiliar with what a light aircraft carrier can do in this game. 

I picture something like a hybrid ship; smaller but low detectability squadrons (like 5km), lower detectability for the hull, DD level guns, no fighters.

To add to the choices, I'd like to see playable Seaplane/Flying-boat Tenders added to the game.
Granted, the game features would need some work to enable their capabilities for rescue, reconnaissance, transport and anti-submarine-warfare.

USS Wasp is the only viable candidate. She is essentially a redesigned Ranger. Put the CVLs at T7 if they ever bring back the odd-numbered tiers. This game is weird without an Essex at T9, along with a Premium counterpart (USS Franklin is my personal choice). Bogue goes at T5. A T5 premium choice should be a Casablanca class CVE, with my choice being Gambier Bay. Folks who know the history will understand my personal preferences.

I believe they suggested all of the removed odd tier CVs would potentially be coming back a tier higher w/the other announced features eventually...but guessing those might actually be alternate tree CVs as opposed to premiums so guess that doesn't fit here so I got nothing.

For the US navy, there's really only 3 options for tier 6, be it tech tree or premuim. The US just didn't build a lot of different types of CV.

An Independence class.

USS Wasp

A pre-war or 1941/42 Yorktown.

a light Aircraft Carrier is just like USS Saipan. low aircraft compliment.

I’m thinking USS Nimitz (CCN-68).  I was going to suggest the Gerald R. Ford (CVN-78), but keeping with WG’s idea of “fair and balanced” CV’s, I feel the Ford is a better fit in Tier VIII.
