Will update the USN line. USN line updated.

Will add CVL in the German line.

And possibly have a look again at the IJN line. IJN line updated.

 

Once time permits.

 

Updated.

The funniest thing about all this being that the Spanish and Australian Navies actually had aircraft carriers.

Currently with my limited library,

Can only have high tier CWoN CV, while have little to none mid tier.

Spanish CV has some holes in their tiering. Probably will have to wait till WG releases the Spanish tech tree before I can start plugging the missing tiers.

T5 HMS Nabob (Ruler Class)
Note: Crewed by Canadians.
Note: CVE

T6 HMS Vindex (Nairana Class)
Note: Operated by Brisith in the Far East (Technically not a CWoN ship nor crewed by CWoN personnel, but operates between UK and AU, so~).
Note: CVE

Note: Paper ship or proposed ship

T8 HMAS Vengeance or HMCS Warrior
Note: Majestic Class

T9 HMCS Bonaventure
Note: Colossus Class
