Sorry if I missed the answer to this previously. Will PF include Escort Carriers as well as the battle carriers? I think it's be a hoot to have some missions where your tiny wing of obsolete fighters (wildcats?) need to stave off larger numbers of japanese fighters. I think this will build an understanding of the wing tactics the USN were FORCED to adopt to keep from getting blown out of the sky.

maybe we should start asking for a list of all flyable ships.. you know what I mean.

what boats Will there be ?

will there be jeep carriers we can/can't land on?

what battlewagons and name 'em please
what cruisers ?
what pt boats?..

what tactics will they employ?
is this a flight sim? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif..

just kiddin' funzilly but really - maybe there should be an unofficial list of planes AND ships.

You will get all these lists around the E3 time (mid May). Sorry, we just can't release it just yet http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks Luthier -

I guess we'll all have to try to "curb our enthusiasm" 'til the E3 show gets rolling.

There seems to be almost as much interest on these boards as to what ships we will have as there is about the planes..

That makes sense for a Pacific based sim as you're either landing on 'em/taking off from 'em/ or trying to sink 'em!

hahah Said the same thing myself in a different thread , Barkhorn.

A thread about the naval tactics and ship movements?..

My thrust here was to get an idea of the various types exactly and, if possible, the list of ships by name..

They are obviously as important as the planes as you say.
