It's not too late to bump this thread is it?
Battle of Atlantic:

USN/FAA - Primary missions range from hunter-killer tasks against u-boats to defending convoys against Fliegerführer Atlantik raids/recon

- Seafire (skua if early?)
- Firefly (Hurricat/catafighter if early)
Fliegerführer Atlantik - Primary missions range from ship attack, minelaying, recon, etc...
- Bogue class escort carrier
- Illustrious Class fleet carrier
- Capital ships
- Merchants (various classes)
- Type VII U-boat
- Merchant Raider
- S-100 class
- Capital ships?
- Merchant (various classes)
General idea is smaller scale operations with carriers in realistic way. Escort carriers especially offer a chance for less AI, and almost mirror IL-2:PF (imagine a flight of two avengers and two martlets instead of a massive fleet carrier attack). There are many cons for something like this however, as the content is stacked in favor of the Allies. Additionally, historic convoy routes might not match up with what a BoX map would allow, diminishing realism. Furthermore, we can only have so many aircraft. As much as I want to see the F6F, sea hurri, ar-196, sunderland, and many many more, we are naturally limited.
