This came from a discussion in my clan discord, but many of us in this forum have been talking about Hornet as a wishlist premium for a while. Here goes...

VIII Hornet - US CV (Yorktown Class) - HP=51,600 - Three attacking flights, Carpet Bombers, Dive Bombers, and Torpedo Bombers. Fighter Consumables drop 10 CAP fighters per squadron, like Enterprise. Carpet Bombers do not follow regular CV plane replenishment rules, instead functioning like Hybrid planes, loading every 3:30, while Dive Bombers and Torpedo Bombers restore at the same rate as Enterprise. (Planes on Deck/Flight Size/Attack Size) Carpet Bomber: B-25 Mitchell, Speed 150, HP - 2,500 (0/4/4), HE Bomb Damage = 6,600. Dive Bomber: SBD Dauntless, Speed - 122, HP - 1900 (18/9/3), AP Bomb Damage = 4,500. Torpedo Bomber: TBF Avenger, Speed - 120, HP - 1780 (12/6/2), Damage = 6,200.

Not gonna lie, some premium CV Hornet with B-25s would be a trip.

I'd prefer USS Shangri La, she was named after a response Roosevelt gave to a reporter when asked about where the Raiders came from to confuse the Japanese. Sponsored by Josephine Doolittle, wife of Jimmy Doolittle.  Launched and recovered not only the Navy version of the B-25, but also P-51s. Could make for an interesting tier 10 that isn't a clone of something we already have but of something we have lost... although she is a long hull Essex so she won't be an exact clone.

That would be cool. And maybe they can activate the machine gunners on the Mitchells too. So they fly in and even a fighter squadron would get a warm welcome attacking them. :cap_rambo:
