Can I raise a question? In keeping with the original title of the thread, namely AIRCRAFT CARRIERS and Battleships, I have a question as to how these units are actually going to fight each other. A battleship should easily blow away a CV if the two are in the same seazone. But by the same token a CV, or rather it's planes, should easily cripple a BB. Big guns were in their waning years in WWII. Ironically, they were also in their prime. But the truth is a BB is a sitting duck against aircraft. Just look at Leyte Gulf, the mighty Musashi was sunk by aircraft. Are the BB attack and defense values going to be modified for anti-aircraft? I may have missed this answer but I just wanted to ask anyway.
ALSO, why exactly is an aircraft carrier now a 2-hit unit? The carrier, by its very nature, is an extremely unsafe vessel. It's a heavyweight fighter with a glass jaw. If anything hits it, shell, bomb, torpedo, etc, then its already in a world of hurt. A 2-hit carrier needs to be a unit introduced after about 1943, and ONLY for US and UK. The Russians and Germans didn't have carrier fleets and the Japanese, while improving their designs, usually produced veritable tinder-boxes with flight decks. By having a 2-hit unit available only to the Allies it adds alot more realism.
I have got to learn to be more concise. Add learn to stop commenting on threads that are really old. Oh well! Just adding some input!
