Something in this mod that is different is that there are 5 Iowa build hulls that can either be completed as BBs or CVBs.
There are also 6 Alaska build hulls that can be completed as CBs or CVs. Decisions, decisions.
Also the Cleveland CL has a conversion to a CLAA that is very interesting, with 20 5in/54 DP guns and 4 5in/38 DP guns along with
28 40mm and 28 20 mm, they would be fierce AA platforms.
Also the Brooklyn, Northampton, Omaha, and Baltimore can all convert to CLAA ships. Just what the UNS needs later in the war.
The link you provided to the scenario says the Iowas can be completed as CS ships with seaplane fighters and DBs. Heresy! At least a CVB is as impressive as the BB version, but I shudder to think of a 45,000 ton ship cluttered up with cranes and rail tracks!
Will be interesting to see this one play out, especially with those late-war AA platforms. Can Japan advance their aircraft as much as players have done recently?
One other question - Does the HR on no Naval Attack by 4-engined aircraft include the Emily (which can carry torps)? If so, that is a significant concession by your opponent.
