In a few months ll of my carriers are scheduled to receive 36 Corsairs. Historically, Corsairs replaced Avengers (I think). As these reinforcements are showing as going directly to a carrier what will happen on the day they arrive. Not all of these carriers are scheduled for refit.
thanks

The Corsairs were assigned as a 4th squadron. An addition not a replacement. As for how they show up I don't know.

OK, it looks like Hellcats go from 42 to 32, Avengers from 18 to 15 and Helldivers from 32 to 15 In January 45. Got to see how the mechanics work out in the game. Historically this gave much more flexibility as there was a greater need for fighters and/or ground attack aircraft. Either role the Corsair excelled at. Anyway, they did not need as many ship killers.

They replace half of the DB squadron.

you'll end up with (I think) 36 F, 36 FB, 16 DB, 15 TB

So, when does the Galactica get its first Viper squadron?

Thanks for noticing. I thought it was a good name until I guy in antoher thread points out that he names his after Japanese carriers he has sunk. So he has the USS Shokaku!

John,

Are you bragging about your newfound toys? As a Japanese PBEM player, you can keep your fancy schmancy corsairs on your 'USS My Pretty Pony'. Show off...

Yeah, stay away from Commander Cain.  Either one of them.  They're both crazy and will get you killed (or kill you herself in new BSG)
