I like the idea of lightweight early War naval bombers enabled at the Ports.  Regarding the Wildcat, I have the sense that the Brewster can actually outperform the F4F.  I don't know if Lusche's stats would bear this out, but my impression is that it's something of a monster among early War aircraft. 


Agreed.  Wildcat (not FM2) would be a better pick.

The Brewster is immensely more popular than the Wildcat. The numbers of 2022: Brewster 5,405 kills and 6,692 deaths. Wildcat 1,025 kills and 1,027 deaths. Against fighters, the Brewster has a k/d of 0.86, the Wildcat 0.81

I would have preferred a flying boat and some floatplanes.  ;)

That would be fun till you need to land and can't get a damn green end sortie floating around.

You could get the same green end sortie as the PT Boat: In port and next to a TG.
