Didn't the US carriers have unusable 5-inch turrets in some of the past releases? I recall there being turrets, and lots of people ingame asking why they couldn't use them, and then they disappeared eventually. Part of the problem with adding more AA to the carriers is that you can only have so many positions, unless you start making the carrier several vehicles in one. The more guns you place in a single operator battery, the more likely it is that you'll run into problems. For example, you can easily hit yourself with the US carrier AA if you fire directly forward, since the gun behind you is pointing at you. That's just two dual-gun turrets, so consider what happens if you start adding more to that. It might be safer to add some MGs like the battleship stuff to the mix, but you still have to find a place on the carrier to place the guns that won't result in frequent but inadvertant TKs.

I just thought up an idea. It does relate to the US carrier, and to all the other capital ships in the game. Would it be possible to convert the carrier into a vehicle spawn point, like the Betty on Midway? Perhaps it could be set up with a control post on the inside, with the captain exposed. This would make it possible to commandeer an enemy carrier, cutting off all spawn waves from the ship. In order to keep out spawn waves the carrier would need to be constantly manned though. It would be done to all carriers to keep things even of course.

Why? The Japs are the ones that need a better carrier. The Jap carrier has only got 8 twin 25mm AA guns, which are crap, while the US carrier has 8 twin 40mm Bofors, which are brilliant.

Sure, carriers in WWII were loaded with AA guns, but I'm not sure if it's really a good idea to give them in FH the same firepower...

The japanese carriers AA sucks even more, if you come at the thing from the front or the rear the AA cant even touch you.
