The part where you sayOriginally posted by panag
where does it say its modern , ...... In real life, WWII is modern era. It's not industrial era or ancient era, now is it? Of course, Civ 3 has carriers appearing in the industrial era... but it also allows me to build carriers before I discover flight, so this doesn't make a lot of sense. Anyway, IRL I daresay the modern era of world history began with WWII.WWII era aircraft carrier
That was my point: aircraft carriers are modern. This one just doesn't look modern. It looks like Hiram, King of Tyre, used the cedars of Lebanon on its flight deckOriginally posted by vmxa1
At the start of WWII many capitol ships in the USN had teak decking. This was removed after a few fires in WWII.
Anyway what do you mean by modern? By most definitions any aircraft carier is modern as none existed in the prior to dreadnoughts. Dreadnoughts were in action in WWI.
