Currently helicopters can't land in aircraft carriers, would be possible that in Toaw IV, helicopters have this feature?

Actually, you can base helos on aircraft carriers but you need to trick the editor and use the naval aircraft icon. However, they are of limited value. They do not really have anti ship capabilities and of course, there are no submarines or ASW.

I really like the idea of allowing helicopters on aircraft carriers, especially for the later scenarios, the more modern scenarios.
I don't have any proof and I'd have to do some small tests to find out but I think helicopters have a recon value that works even at
sea. And even if they did nothing at all it's pretty cool for chrome and bells and whistles.

Yes, you can change the icon of the helicopters units to a naval air icon, but if you do this, then the unit can´t move in land terrain (as a helicoter unit icon do) only can move between airports or aircraft carriers and this is a thing that I don´t want.
