Since there are a ton of new aircraft coming in the next patch, I am giving serious consideration to modeling the carriers converted in the 1920s, though not removing their classes. It would probably be in the Super Dreadnoughts scenario, or a spinoff of that scenario. So, for instance, Lexington and Saratoga would be aircraft carriers, but the other 4 ships would still be Lexington class battlecruisers.
If this is done, it wil raise the carrier list to:
Amagi (or Akagi)
Vindictive (Until 1924)
This is not a complete reversal of WPO's focus, as the Tosa, rest of the Amagis, the other 4 Lexingtons, and the other Normandies will still be in their battleship glory. Note that if they are added in Super Dreadnoughts (for example), the Lexington will be a CC in the Standard 1922 scenarios and 1926 scenario, but a CV in the 1926 Super Dreadnought Scenario (and with an adjusted arrival date).
So, vote now. There is plenty of time, as there is a lot of other work to do before this, and this will not take that long to implement.
