cemo1956: A carrier-only plane is something in the works (but don't look for it anytime soon, since other programs are presently taking much of my development time). It's trivial to do in XML, but the key in making special carrier fighters and bombers is to make sure the AI will build enough of them to keep the carriers filled up. I have not tested that yet but maybe I will give it a run later today. About the Chinese, I have not strictly forbidden them from making a carrier, since I allow for open historical play, but I've never seen them concentrate on any naval units at all. I don't believe that would be an issue unless a human player was absolutely set on it. You can always do what Ambreville suggested if you want to forbid it entirely. Peter1501: Thank you! On that note, I see that the downloads have passed 1,000 today.
