I'm not sure Langley can carry fighters as she is an AV. If she was an AKV, it would be different. She can transport float and float patrol planes.
AV – Aircraft Tender
Provides Aviation Support points to bases for operating Float Planes (FP) and flying boats (an amphibious type of PA – patrol aircraft)[20.1.2] and some AVs can operate planes while underway (see notes below).
Use #1 – Provide Seaplane Support for FPs and float PAs operating at remote bases.
Use #2 – Provide Seaplane Support for FPs and float PAs operating at a base that would otherwise exceed the base’s available aviation support capacity.
Use #3 – Operate FPs and float PAs while underway at remote locations (AV must have an “Air Capacity” value to operate while underway – see notes below).
Use #4 – Transport FPs and float PAs (Aircraft Transport TF missions).
Low priority use: cargo missions.
Note: If an AV has an “Air Capacity” value, then the AV can operate planes while underway [18.104.22.168.1]. For example, the U.S. Curtiss Class AV has a 0 Air Capacity, but the U.S. Wright Class AV has a 4 Air Capacity; thus, the Wright Class AV can operate planes while underway and the Curtis Class AV cannot.
Note: An AV’s “Seaplane Support” value is listed on the right side of Ship Information Screen.
Note: The plus number next to a base’s Aviation Support value is base’s Seaplane Support value (e.g., points from a disbanded AV located in the base’s port).
Note: An AV’s “Air Capacity/Used” value and the number of “Sorties, Max/Remaining” are listed on the right side of Ship Information Screen.
Note: AVs, including those with an Air Capacity value of 0, can provide Aviation Support for FPs, FFs, and float PAs at any friendly airfield, including those that are size 0 (referred to as “dot” hexes) as long as they are on a coastal hex [22.214.171.124.1].
Note: [michaelm on 7/7/2011] Next build (1108p3) will have changes for when/how seaplanes draw supplies (http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=2852726&mpage=1&key=�).
