Komrad_BI read somewhere that the Graf Zeppelin was almost finished, but Goering had problems allowing planes to the Kriegsmarine (he wanted to command all of germany's planes or something like that).[/QUOTE]No. The Graf Zeppelin actually had an air arm attached to the carrier before it was completed (they had started training). The air arm consisted of Bf 109Ts, Ju 87Cs and Fi 167s. The carrier itself was never finished due to lack of funding and it didnt had much priority. And after Bismarck, and later, Scharnhorst were sunk, it proved that large German capital ships were very vulnarable to the British Home Fleet. And later, when Tirpitz also were sunk, and the Germans were loosing on all fronts, they finaly cancelled the project in whole. [QUOTE=Komrad_B]Italy had no aircraft carrier.

Actually, the Italian navy started converting two cruise ships to carriers, and the first one, Aquila, was something like 95% finished when the italians surrendered to the Allies. aquila.jpg The German carrier planes: Bf 109T (Emil with longer wings, and arresting hook): 109t-3d.jpg Ju 87C (Berta with foldable wings, arresting hook, and ocean survival gear) ju87_00247_4k.jpg Fi 167 (torpedo-bomber/scout-bomber) fi167.jpe

Von MudraWe will need the Gloster Gladiater though....:)

SOrry for new post, but anyway: Norwegian Resitance has the Gladiator (but I have a feeling its a little to big to fit the FH scaling): airfight1.jpg airfight2.jpg Maybe a trade or something, since they are modding your game? And btw, the Malta map sounds like a realy cool "what-if" idea, but I dont think thats what FH realy wants. Who knows?
