US CARRIER CRUISES SUMMARY US CARRIER - DETAILED CRUISES & AIRCRAFT COMPLEMENT US CARRIER CRUISES & AIRCRAFT TYPES

Prior 1962, USN and USMC aircrafts designation tended to identify the manufacturer, the nth type supplied to the Navy by this manufacturer, the aircraft type (fighter, attack,...) and version.  The designation system was then unified for all armed services.   Although AAC time scale is place beyond this pivoting moment, we shall use a pre-1962 lookalike way to designate aircrafts

 

The "active periods" shown below are roughly showing when a first squadron was operational with a given type, and when it was removed from the inventory (either front line or reserve squadrons).  This list is not supposed to be comprehensive as it it's assembled in the specific context of AAC

 

In order to reduce the size of the main USNs page, several aircrafts only show basic data.  Fighters, and addtional data on some aircrafts will be found on the following pages :

Notes:
F4F Wildcat Only of interest as a "cheat" aircraft for either Spanish or Portugese Naval Air Arms (or both)
E2A Hawkeye
C2A Greyhound
Although designed to operate from Essex class aircraft carriers, the E2 never did, nor did the C2.   With only Essex type carriers in AAC, we'll see what to do whenever the carriers will be designed.   Not essential, we have the S1/E1/C1 Tracker/Tracer/Trader to cover the needed functions.  Incidentally, as USN aircrafts are deliberately designated in a pre-1962 format (or lookalike), the E2A is here renamed W2F1
