Carrier plane counts - 11/20/2015 5:30:09 PM

I'm having trouble with exceeding CV plane limits. For example, I might have an 18 plane Corsair and an 18 plane dive bomber squadron on board thus showing 36 planes total and I add another 18 plane unit and the total suddenly jumps to 144 planes or some other number way above what is shown on the listing of units.

Any help on identifying what I'm doing wrong will be appreciated.

Non "carrier capable" airframes take up 4x the hanger space of a "carrier capable" airframe.

18 plane Corsair

not all corsairs are carrier capable.
if that is the case then they are flight deck cargo and can fly off but not operate from the carrier they are on.



there is a technical term for those who confuse the opinions of an author's characters for the opinions of the author.
the term is IDIOT.

The math isn't adding up guys.

If the first two plane types mentioned of squadrons of 18 planes each reported an amount of 36 planes then the Corsair type he put aboard was a carrier capable type.

Adding another 18 plane squadron of non-carrier capable planes adds 4x18 or 72 planes to the load amount his total should be showing 108 not 144.

To the OP, are there any reserve planes in any of the squadrons, especially the last one you added that jumped the load to 144?
