  1. Hi there. I have made a previous topic regarding whether aircraft carriers should be added late game. And polls generally reflected that they should be added, reading the topic also pointed out a recurring trend: "It's complicated". Which to be honest, it is. If you want to read the discussions then head over to that topic here: However in this topic I'm not here to discuss Aircraft carriers themselves but rather more on the support roles that these planes could fill. Could planes be added as spotters for the battlefleet late game? Could they be used for reconnaissance in the main campaign? I would support the introduction of aircraft in a light supporting role not only for the benefits as historically provided in the appropriate time era, but also the respective influence on shit design. Now Players will have to worry about shooting down these pesky aircraft, hence, will have to devote displacement and money to suitable AA protection. This can be achieved through the use of AA guns, as well as fire controls systems, range finding and radar systems etc. This will essentially lead to more historical ships, with players having to balance anti surface ability and anti air ability (but not to the extent as IRL). And hence a Iowa superstructure covered in anti surface weapons is no longer a great idea. This will also introduce the use of aircraft handling facilities in order to operate these spotter/reconnaissance planes, which themselves coming in all different shapes and sizes (From the setups seen on british capital ships like a refit Warspite, to japanese styles seen on the heavy cruiser Tone). Cheers.
