actually, carriers were used quite a lot in The Med. Just not as much as the Pacific (given the vast difference in size of the theatre, and the distances involved)

And there were many raids staged from RN CVS in the North Atlantic, particulary against Norway (read: Tirpitz, although that map doesn't go as far north as I wished it would for that...)

 

Unfortunately, like you said, most the IJN CVs are either "stand ins" (built from something else) or those only available from the DAT or YAPs 'rising sun' mod -- and the RS ones needed a lot of editing to bring them to NA levels.

 

Hinch's Zuihio, iirc, is the only "purpose built" IJN carrier we have here (other than the aforementioned stand ins. they DO work, they just don't look right). And don't get me started on USN carriers -- I'm still waiting for a straight deck Essex!

 

But we DO still need Japanese Naval aviation -- Kates, Jills, Judys -- most of which wound up flying from land bases in the last year of the war.

ok make the planes over time and think about the carrier issue apart from the vastly used Traweler i made some years ago i never made ships again my main his getting the height off those thing!

and they would low poly versions until a boat maker cloud do some realy good models!

just to think it over....

  Unfortunately, if you download the Zuiho Wrench mentioned, you'll find that 7Zip can't open it; it says "Unsupported compression for..." everything in the folder. The only thing I got was the datd .ini. The CVE-118 Sicily, which is a repaint of it, opens fine. So at the moment we don't even have a Zuiho. :blackeye: Maybe someone who has it can re-upload it. Hope so.

Thought I'd might have snuck it into one of the "GroundObject" packs I include with terrains, but I guess I didn't!! There's some "stand ins" for other IJN CVs in some of them (Phillilpines 44??? Okinawa?? -- I don't remember!!)

 

I'll get it up loaded later tonight, or tomorrow. Hang tight folks!

Excellent, thanks again Wrench! Now, if only we also had Zuikaku and Shokaku... and maybe Hiryu, Soryu, Kaga,....Oh well, someday. :biggrin:
