Dear ED, 

was wondering if in a future is there any chance to bring to life  other different Carriers DLC, that would bring and expand the aeronaval projection into DCS and in conjunction with further maps would give a real complex envelope. My vote would be for, in sequence;

1- Liaoning/Shendong

2- Clemenceau/Foch

3- Invincible

4- USS Kitty Hawk

5- USS Enterprise CVN 65 ?

6- Charles de Gaulle ?

7- Queen Elisabeth/Prince of Wales ?

 

What you vote for guys ?

The Chinese carriers I can sort of understand, as making a FC3-level J-15 wouldn't be too much of an ask.

 

But the other non-US ones? No... What would fly off the Queen Elizabeth class? Or the French carriers? The F-35 and Rafale simply aren't going to happen. Haven't heard of the Etendard being made either.

 

I may be mis-remembering, but isn't the Invincible being done by Razbam as part of their South Atlantic thing? Not sure if that's just an AI asset though.

 

In general, I think the US carriers are enough, after that a fully fleshed out Kuznetsov and full fidelity Su-33, then the Chinese carriers. Not to mention the WWII US and IJN carriers that are supposedly in the works.

I would pay for a smaller (helicopter) carrier like the Wasp-class amphibious assault ship for navy helicopter and VTOL-planes. An Invincible-class, Queen-Elizabeth-class or mistral-class carrier would be good to.

 

I think we do not need further larger carriers for a long time if ressources could be used better on things that are not yet implemented like more ships with complex damage models and animated deck crews for helicopter operations, anti-submarine warefare and of course navy helicopter like Sea Lynx or SH/MH-60.

Those carriers can still operate the Harrier and Hornet/Tomcat respectively, the Catapult runs are just long enough on the CDG that it could get either of those aircraft in the air, while the QE class can easily handle the Harriers, especially given they have the Skijump which would allow a heavier take-off load.

The only ones I'm really interested in at the moment is the Enterprise and Kittyhawk.

 

We simply don't have the aircraft for the others to make sense, let alone things like other ships, particularly escorts, but also things like replenishment ships.

 

And speaking of which, I'm kinda worried about HB's Forrestal (which is supposed to be an early 80s fit as far as I can tell), seeing as there's no other BLUFOR ship to go with it (well, apart from the La Combattante IIa, which is firing the wrong missile) - it's all by itself. Everything else, including the OHP, depicts ships as they were post 2000s.

 

So I'd also add an 80s Knox class frigate, an 80s Belknap/California/Virginia class cruiser and an 80s Charles F. Adams/Spruance destroyer. And seeing as naval base Guam is a base for them, I'd also add a Los Angeles class SSN (though the Flt. II and Flt. III based there now are bit on the new side) and an Emory S. Land class submarine tender.

 

The other one I'm most interested in is the Pr. 1143/.2/.3/.4 "Krechet" [NATO: Kiev class] heavy aviation cruisers. But again, we're missing the aircraft it carries (even as AI), and REDFOR ships are in dire need of a major graphical overhaul. The good thing about these is that their principle weapons system is the P-500 'Bazalt' [SS-N-12 "Sandbox"] and have a substantial A/A armament as well - they're less reliant on their aircraft.

While make believe and fun are great, a Tomcat or Hornet on either one of those ships would be historically blasphemous! Come on man!

Kitty Hawk and Enterprise are the only 2 that make sense.

In terms of history I can understand that, but in terms of functionality and role it would be still the same as the current  super carrier. I can see them in the distant future, but for now a "Marine Expeditionary Unit" with a smaller WASP/America-Class carrier would make more sense and could add amphibious operations to DCS.
Moreover helicopters gain more and more ground in DCS and I am optimistic that we would get navy/marine helicopters like AH-1 Cobra, V-22 Osprey, CH-53 and SH/MH-60 in the near future.

3- Invincible / 7- Queen Elisabeth/Prince of Wales  can coming by RAZBAM and your assets packs (the first will coming with Falklands assets pack).
2- Clemenceau/Foch 6- Charles de Gaulle surelly not appears if some 3rd party dont make a "pilotable" module.
Us Carriers as 4- USS Kitty Hawk / 5- USS Enterprise CVN 65 ? I think will coming by Heatblur on a future.

Correct, but I expected HB continue with "naval stuff" after F-14 / A-6.

I'd love the inclusion of a MEU. That would be awesome! I was jokingly referring to the idea of a Tomcat aboard the CDG or anything but a USN CV/CVN. I'm personally waiting for the Apache btw!

There's a WWII Essex carrier planned from Leatherneck to support the Corsair.  I can't find the post to reference.
