The carriers had to be redefined, which meant the engine had to be re-coded to understand what to do with the ships, and the only way that could happen is from ED changing the engine itself. I strongly believe that is happening and we will see it when the new carriers arrive. Otherwise it would not be possible to do what they are going to do with the future carriers.
Here's an F-18 video from MagzTV. The link is set to the time he talks about the very slight stutter on the deck of the USS John C. Stennis. Looks like they've mitigated the problem but it's not completely gone.

I've seen the video. I was surprised to see the stutter, and I noticed it right away. However it's a very small thing now. The big question is what happens when the ship turns and players are sitting on deck? Currently that exasperates the sliding and usually sends players off into the drink.
