Was reading in "The Jolly Rogers" VF-17
That during night operations that two DDs would be station 30 degrees off the bow of CVE and display red mast lights so the pilots would know where the horizon was.

Would be nice ingame

I remember reading about that. I am sure it was reserved for those really dark nights. Not only were the fighters of the day poorly equiped for instrument flying, the pilots were for the most part not really good at it.

Thought it would help.
Sounded like a good idea.
I know I I would use it in game .
