It's the first in a series, with each one hopefully being grander and more ambitious than the one before.

Thanks for the Campaign! I've only played a few missions, but it seems very good.
I do, however, have a possible bug to report. In the mission (second one?) where you have to rocket enemy positions and then protect the fleet, the two AI pilots in my flight who started on the left went straight into the carrier superstructure as they tried to take off. Note that I haven't tested repeatedly, so it might be a one-off thing
Thanks again for going to the effort of creating this.

Thanks for your comments Frenzied.

I'm pretty sure this isn't a bug - it's just standard AI stupidity. I suspect that it is largely reliant on weather conditions: the worse they are the more the ship rocks (you can see this best when you speed time up).

I think if the AI plane releases chocks at a moment that will result at it being at the end of the deck when the superstructure side of the carrier is tipped closest to the sea, then the plane will follow the incline downwards and collide with it.

If you restart the mission it is just as likely that all the AI planes will get off the deck with no problems. I have subjectively noticed that this effect is more pronounced on 4.07, but can't really quantify if it is actually true.
