My wallet is at the ready. All carriers and tailhook aircraft are immediate purchases upon release.

The Yorktown, CV-5, is an interesting choice and I am very much looking forward to having a straight deck carrier to fly off of in my F4U Corsair but I wonder if y'all know that the Yorktown was sunk long before the -1D Corsair was ever qualified to operate from US Navy carriers? The Enterprise, one of her sister ships, operated Corsairs in a night fighter role later on in the war. Any of the Essex class carriers would be a better choice from a historical accuracy point of view. Having an Essex class carrier already in the game would also provide a platform from which to operate any future developed Korean War carrier based planes such as the AD or F9F Panther. Even a late model CVE would fit the Corsair for both conflicts.

Then it must be CV-10, which was also the Yorktown. Rudel's model picture looks like an Essex class, of which the CV-10 USS Yorktown was, unless my eyes are failing me.

Name: Yorktown
Namesake: Battle of Yorktown
Builder: Newport News Shipbuilding
Laid down: 1 December 1941
Launched: 21 January 1943
Commissioned: 15 April 1943
Decommissioned: 9 January 1947
Recommissioned: 2 January 1953
Decommissioned: 27 June 1970
Reclassified:
CVA-10 on 1 October 1952
CVS-10 on 1 September 1957
Struck: 1 June 1973

no it does not

it is CV5 ship (sunk long before F4U appeared in service), Essex class looks very different

As far as i like the Yorktown (or Enterprise in this case) maybe for the Corsair is more suitable an Essex class carrier, good job anyway.

I think Enterprise would be the best choice. Enterprise has participated in almost all early war and late war campaign and battles. If you do Essex, then you can't really use it for Battle of Midway, Coral Sea or Santa Cruz.
