(v1.15 Build 1009.27.14/DB3000 Build 477)
One of my never-come true scenarios is WWIII-Battle of the Atlantic scenario and
I came up with carrying Harrier on marchant vessel (modern MAC!), as an interceptor for fussy Bear.
Luckily, DB3000 database has Atlantic Conveyor, British RO/RO vessel which was used as actual "Harrier Carrier" in Falklands War.
However, Atlantic Conveyor couldn't carry Harrier (I tried Marines AV-8A/#2399 and Harrier GR.3/#787), showing "Out of space!" message
(I was able to add Helicopters though).
I checked Aircraft size of Harrier and Parking Spot Capacity of Atlantic Convayor, the former is "Medium Aircraft (12.1-18m Long)"
and the latter is "Large Aircraft (18.1-26m Long)" so there seems to be no problem (at least physically) to carry Harrier.
Moreover, I noticed any destoyer/cruiser could not carry Harrier even if they had Medium Aircraft-capability Helipad, while
US LHA or Japanese Hyuga or Izumo-class DDH could carry Harrier or F-35B on their the same Medium Aircraft-capability Parking Spot.
My hypothethesis is, whether a ship could carry fixed wing aircraft is determined by ship's category (Surface Combatant, Carrier (Aviation Carrier)...)
