Notes

  • A light carrier is considered a capital ship.
  • The base org and morale of an Early Light Carrier is 20, that of a Basic Light Carrier 25, all others have 30 org and morale.
  • There is currently a bug, which allows a fleet with a CVL to instantly close range, regardless of weather, admirals, doctrines or fleet type. Use the Armageddon 1.3beta patch (or the final, once it's ready), the bug is fixed there.
