I am more familiar with CVE's used in British service; this involved different types of airgroups: 1. A composite group of say 10 Hellcats + 4 Avengers, for photo-recon, strike, invasion support, ASW patrol, i.e. used in East Indies fleet area with many islands. 2. "Fighter Support Carriers" with a complement of 24 Seafires; used in the Mediterranean, East Indies Fleet area and BPF areas. 3. Atlantic convoy patrol, with Hurricane IIc fighters/bomber destroyers and Swordfish ASW. Would like to know more about U.S. CVE airgroups and the operations they took part in. Did the U.S. use aircraft other than Wildcats and Avengers on CVE's? And what sort of operations were they tailored for? Thanks!
