Oh please DROP the Hyperbole. Sight Range is 6, Fighter Range is 8, that's hardly a "tiny fraction", to use those quotes you love. It's NOT a big deal. Even Bombers still have 6 out of 10. That's not "tiny" either. I think it's perfectly fine to have those limits if your air units are the front line. Destroyers can reveal more of the map so your carriers can stay a bit back and their air units use their full range. Land warfare is similar. I find more merit in debating whether the current model damages air units too much.
