Here is what we believe is the Japanese Carrier status:
Kaga is damaged and hasn't been seen in a while except for briefly at Truk 90 or so days ago.
The rest of the KB is sunk along with Ryujo, Zuiho, and Shoho.
We believe, other than accelerated CVs, all they have undamaged are: CVs: Junyo and Hiyo CVLs: Ryuho CVEs: Hosho and Taiyo
The next carriers, un-accelerated, would be available MAR-OCT of 44. I don't remember how much they can be accelerated, but I don't think they would be here yet.
Over the next 120 days we will be receiving the following: CVs: Essex, Bunker Hill, Cold Harbor, and Gettysburg CVLs: Independence, Belleau Wood, and Princeton CVEs: Five Bogue and Casblancas.
We have also converted Wasp's fighter squadron to Hellcats. Helldivers and SBD-5s go into production in 20 days. Our ability to project airpower will significantly increase beyond our ground airbases by the end of July going into August.
