Hi Oleg, in Pacific Fighters, the screenshots show the carrier, USS Lexington. The Lexington was sunk at the Battle of the Coral Sea in 1942. All the sreenshots of the late model Hellcats, Corsairs, and Avengers have the late style all blue paint jobs and they all flew off the Essex class carriers, not from the Lex. I hope that you will include the Essex carriers in PF also, the sim would be more accurate with them in it. Thank you, I love your work!

They built another CV Lexington (Essex Class), after the first Lex was detroyed..
Today, the CV Lexington is a floating museum on the Corpus Christi Bay front, in Texas.

The screen shots do her justice.
She's got her own web-sight (http://www.usslexington.com/)

Edit...sorry my bad...screenshots not there anymore...they changed the sight...it used to have a virtual walk around tour...was very cool.

I would venture to guess, there would be Essex Class Carriers. They were the Backbone of the Fleet until the Wars end. Any missions flown during 1943-44 were probably flown of the decks of Essex Class Carriers. CV-9, USS Essex I believed was commissioned in 1942.
