Are they going to be any escort class cariers and if so what class?

I'd buy that for a dollar!

Seriously there are several reasons (good ones too!) that escort carriers would be nice.

1. Should be the smallest landing deck we are likely to see, most challenging.

2. Easier (that a great big honking carrier) to model.

3. Would be good for modest computers.... less AAA less polys... less less less. all round.

4. Easier to sink...if you are the baddies.

I'm sure that there are more reasons....

I'm thinking I need one to make a sequal to that great historicaly acurate WW2 movie drama Pearl Harbor. Cuba Gooding Jr an untrained mess atendant flys off the sinking liskon bay and single handedly defeates the Nip navy. On a more serios note has any flight sim ever modeled the escort carier class and not just the big fleet cariers? It would be fun to put a small fleet of them in for coop mode and just go at it. We could even do atlantic missions if they include all the AEP planes.

I've never seen it, outside pure wargame simulations. I think if PF does it, it would be a first.

You could sink them in Aces of the Deep

Also IIRC there was a third-party model for CFS 2
