There is a BF-190T isn't there?........ As for the Graf Zeppelin she was abandoned as war materials were in short supply. The Germans scuttled her at the end of the war but she was raised by the Russians and used as a training ship before finally being towed out to sea and sunk, she still rests there on the bottom and there was an article a while ago about her in Flypast or Aeroplan e Monthly.

These are really minor things, aren't they? We don't even have single flyable heavy, may it be British or US American. We have a Pacific theatre, yet not carrier based torpedo bomber. And just a handful of ships. And maps.

Eventually, the game grew and grew and some things just didn't happen to make it. German carriers and carrier aircraft that never saw service are no top priority.
