None of the BB/BC to CV conversions are in War Plan Orange. WPO assumes that because the Washington Treaty was not signed, the aircraft carrier was not forced on the navies of the world, and thus takes a more leisurely development. The Lexingtons, Kiis, Amagis, Tosas, and Courageous class ships all are in WPO as designed, i.e. in the original roles.
While it is possible that one or more of the battleship hulls may have been converted to a carrier, all actual instances (with the exception of COurageous and Glorious) were the direct result of the Washington Treaty. As such, like everything else related to tghe treaty, it is negated.
As to Amagi, I have lengthened her build time, to where she is one of the later arriving of her class, to assume that although she was wrecked, she is salvagable, especially with a war situation brewing.
The only carriers in WPO are: The Furious, Argus, and Vindictive for the Brits, although in later scenarios Vindictive is a seaplane carrying cruiser; the Hosho class for Japan, consiting of the Hosho and Shokaku (cancelled in 1922), with two additional units built in the later scenarios, and the Langley and Liner conversion class for the US. The US (along with Japan) planned that in the event of war, liners or other large, fast ships would be converted. This is represented by 2 additional Hoshos, and 2 faster Langley's for each side.
