I love history. I often find myself asking, what if ? What if Germany had done things differently and not focused on an aircraft carrier, only to scrap the idea down the road due to bad decisions... What if submarines were their focus and more spent on R&D ? What if some capital ships were not actually scuttled prematurely and the breakout was actually not attempted ?
What if the capital ships were held back to disallow some landings... Say, D-Day ?
Well balanced 1943 and earlier force. Few fighters go after some annoying destroyers and escort some dive bombers. Some subs held back from the Atlantic to offer defence of the larger ships vs enemy subs. And last but not least some nice firepower if anyone chooses to press the battle.
