Just finished the scenario.
Nice to play even if the Iraq side is not really threatening.
Just loved to use CV Midway, i visited her in San Diego and forgot that Desert Storm was her last operation.
I thought that the Midway wing was the only all-hornet one in the navy because her deck wasn't able to whitstand Tomcats landings.
It's my memory that isn't so good or it was an emergency solution to have more F-14 at hand?

After further research on the net I have found that Coral Sea and Midway were able to operate F-14s but only for Carrier Landing Graduations.
Not able to operate F-14s in combato load and never fielded them operationally in their wings also because of limited hangar height, that prevented some checks to the undercarriage.

My memory wasn't so bad
