I would think they would be allowed. Would be very fun to have them...and they carry their own AAA defense http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hopefully ships can have active or passive AAA defense too. Also hoping that they do something about sinking the carrier. Invulerable if its in dogfight mode + its selected as a homebase.

These, and others, are questions that I'm sure Luthier is struggling with. He has already said that CVs would/could be in DF servers, but they definitely will not move. That brings up the problem of how to create the wind over the deck. I don't think it's too big of a problem, but then, I'm not a programmer either.

One of the biggest problems he'll have to overcome, is how to limit/regulate folks spawning on these carriers. There is only so much deck space available for takeoff - especially if you start from in front of the barriers (assuming that the barriers are even modeled). People are really going to have to learn how to cooperate while flying in a PF dogfight server if they ever expect to get off, and back on the carrier sucessfully.

Carriers will probably be available in MP, but there are problems with moving bases so the carriers might be immobile in MP http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
