I have been trying to get some Claudes to upgrade to Zeros. No luck. It's now almost Feb 42. I have 20k supply. Level 5 airbase. HQ located at same airbase. There are Zeros in the pool. Group Replacements On. Upgrade - Zero.

I'm certain I'm missing something very basic. Suggestions what that might be?

Also, I lost a carrier and I have some fragments left at Truk - the base unit is shown as "destroyed". I moved a CVE to Truk and put the planes on it, but now the fragments won't expand in size. On Zero unit has 1 plane and 5 pilots. Will not allow me to add planes. Since the base unit is eliminated when I look at the OOB, is the fragment just stuck at 1 plane forever?

You can buy that unit back from the destroyed airgroups screen. The fragment will never increase in size. Buy back the unit and disband the fragment into some other group.

OK.  Thought 5 because when I held the cursor over the upgrade I thought it side Size needed to be 5.

Thanks

Any idea on the carrier resizing?

With regard to your air group not increasing is size on your carrier. Did you try setting to resize to Carrier then disbanding in port and then form the task force again? I usually find that works and if it doesn't. I make sure it is the only group on the carrier and then for sure it resizes to a larger air group.

Still struggling with those Carrier groups.

Just to recap -
1.  Carrier sunk, fragments redeploy and combine at Truk
2.  I send CVE to Truk and place fragments on CVE
3  I got to "destroyed groups" and rebuild Base Unit (says now it is at Tokyo, delay 359 days)
4  CVE heading back to Tokyo with fragments that won't resize.

So suggestions from here?

When I said to Disband fragment, it said Aircraft would be permanently lost, not sent to pool.

You have to rebuild the unit from "destroyed groups" tab. You will be able to use it again in a year. The fragment is just that, a fragment. If all planes are repaired and you disband the frames will go into pool, if they are damaged or in maintenance they will destroyed. You will recover all the pilots though.

in short - the fragments are worthless, disband them into pool or another unit. In a years time you will be able to use the unit again (IF you pay the PP)

Edited for my crap spelling and such
