OK, I too undestand/would assume that the categories in the Base Information Screen are grouped by primary role. That seems logical and the intent of displaying that information there in the first place.
But what is NOT logical is expecting a player to automatically understand:
a) what the 12 acronym names actually refer to/mean ie. CV, BB, CA, DD, AP, AO, SS, DM, PT, AG, AU, AV
b) what ship types in the game actually belong to each of those acronym names
Although I am not a naval freak, I do recognize some of the more common/well known acronym names in that list, like CV, BB, CA and DD. However there is nothing there to tell me that in this case of viewing the the Base Information Screen, CV for example IS NOT just refering to the CV ship types anchored at the base. In this context it also seems to refer to any CVEs and CVLs as well. Even more confusing is the use of the acronym AU which doesn't even have a direct ship type counterpart or is even mentioned or listed anywhere in the manual/appendix. I have to "guess" what ship types this mysterious acronymn is refering to (I think I have been at least able to work out that maybe the ship type AS (submarine tender) belongs to this AU category...don't ask me even what an AS ship type is useful for ).
I find it incredible that no one has yet even acknowledged that there is something rather odd and inconsistent with this or that it is even worth discussing/clarifying. Maybe no one even LOOKs at that summary screen to get information on what ships are available at a certain base. If they don't then obviously the screen is usless/redundnat to players so why even have it in the game?
Is this what you are looking 4?
