What are some good names for Allied Carriers ? Suggestions ?
i.e. Replacing Lexington II Yorktown II Hornet II assuming you choose to do so ?
I have used American Revolutionary War Battles as a previous theme
Once past Lexington / Saratoga / Cowpens / Bunker Hill - all the good names are kinda gone.
"Germantown" "Harlem Heights" "Quebec" "Moore's Creek Bridge" don't appeal to me.
Was there an actual nomenclature adopted for Enterprise / Hornet / Wasp that I have failed to read about (or forgotten ) ? I do know Enterprise is a storied ship name uncertain of the others.
I recall one thread / AAR where the Allied Commander renamed all incoming Carriers Soryu or some such thing - a little маскировка
But I was trying to come up with easier names based on a USN tradition.
Princeton (actual CVL), Trenton, Monmouth, Valley Forge, Brandywine; I'd have to do some research to come up with more.
Reprisal , Fly, Dash, Argus, Retaliation. Alfred , Providence, Alliance, and America are all Rev war American Navy names. Randoplh was named after a rev war ship As was Ben Franklin. , Intrepid was a Barbary war ship , as was Enterprise. Kearsage was a Civil Warship.
