I saw you add escort destroyers each with every viet tour of duty a very nice addiction..... but  I fear they can't show this way.

They will show as part of a NavalUnit:

 

An example is below:

 

[NavalUnit001]
UnitName=USS Bon Homme Richard Carrier Group
ForceID=1
Nation=USN
RandomChance=100
MaxObjects=5
Experience=100
Morale=100
Supply=100
Intelligence=0
RetireDate=9/1967
StartPosition=592000.00,618000.00
ObjectivePosition=592000.00,618000.00
HomePortPosition=200000.0,260000.0
MinFleetSpeed=10.289
Ship[01].Type=CVA-31L
Ship[01].Name=USS Bon Homme Richard
Ship[01].Number=31
Ship[01].Texture=USNGrey31L

Ship[02].Type=GearingFRAM1B
Ship[02].Name=USS Charles R. Ware
Ship[02].Number=865
Ship[02].Texture=USNGrey

Ship[03].Type=GearingFRAM1B
Ship[03].Name=USS Forrest Royal
Ship[03].Number=872
Ship[03].Texture=USNGrey

Ship[04].Type=DDG-2
Ship[04].Name=USS Barney
Ship[04].Number=6
Ship[04].Texture=Gray

Ship[05].Type=DDG-2
Ship[05].Name=USS Waddell

Ship[05].Number=24
Ship[05].Texture=Gray

 

 

Then the aircraft must point to the NavalUnit so:

 

[AirUnit001]
AircraftType=A-4E_65
Squadron=VA212
ForceID=1
Nation=USN
StartDate=02/1967
RetireDate=09/1967
DefaultTexture=VA212
StartNumber=0
NavalUnitID=001
ShipID=1

CarrierBased=TRUE
BaseMoveChance=0
RandomChance=100
MaxAircraft=12
StartAircraft=12
MaxPilots=12
StartPilots=12
Experience=100
Morale=100
Supply=100
MissionChance[sWEEP]=0
MissionChance[CAP]=0
MissionChance[iNTERCEPT]=0
MissionChance[ESCORT]=0
MissionChance=100
MissionChance[CAS]=20
MissionChance[sEAD]=20
MissionChance[ARMED_RECON]=50
MissionChance[ANTI_SHIP]=40
MissionChance[RECON]=0
UpgradeType=NEVER
 

 

And in the campaign, this statement:

 

StartDate=26/01/1967
StartDateDeviation=0
EndDate=25/08/1967
RunCampaignBeforePlayerStart=FALSE
ForceWithInitiative=1
NavalCampaign=TRUE
MaxMissions=50
NormalMissionRate=180

Yes I knew that way. The other used in this camp doesn't work.

 

I think that it'ld be good to "Navalize" original SF2V campaings to SFNA standard ..... having escorts next to the carriers at yankee station.

 

Other reworks have little appeal without this.
