Only carrier i seen was docked in Scapa Flow in mid 1940 alongside 2 auxiliary cruisers. Then once i spotted a Fast moving task force compromised of 2 BB just NE of Britain if i can remember correctly.

THey are just very rare my friend.

There are a few times when they are scripted to be in port. Other than that, the game has them in the random spawn files. There are certain task forces, that spawn in particular spots at a certain interval, that have a chance of containing one or more battleships. There's one that spawns near Gibraltar, that can contain up to three. It moves through the straights, and them up west of England before heading to Scapa Flow. Most of these have some randomness to the waypoints. For the most part, encountering them is pure luck.

There's one other options. If you survive until 1944, there should be no problems with you finding a carrier. In 1944, there's at least a dozen different hunter/killer groups roaming the Atlantic, each based around an escort carrier. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
