5. It is possible to advance a squadron from "carrier trained" to "carrier capable". It requires the "carrier trained" squadron spending about 3 months on a carrier. It is not possible to convert a non "carrier trained" squadron into one.
Alfred, it's just opposite (though minor thing).
Unit can be "carrier capable" and take more Ops losses, and then in time, it becomes "carrier trained". Latter means it is fully trained & experienced with CV operations.
Ha! Never thought I'd catch Alfred with an error.
188.8.131.52.1 in manual:
Carrier Trained aircraft are noted as such on their Air Unit Information Screen. They function
normally on Carriers, and may take off and land on a Carrier and perform non-transfer Missions
Certain other units will be listed as Carrier Capable on their Air Unit Information Screen. These
planes may be fully functional on Aircraft Carriers, but have a higher chance of suffering
Operational Losses during take-offs and landings. Just because an aircraft is Carrier Capable
(i.e. it is built for carrier operations, having a tail hook and other necessary equipment) does not
mean the pilot flying it is trained to land and take off from one.
