I heard Mark Herman explain on his youtube video for Plan Orange that, unlike EotS, the CVs and BBs in Plan Orange were the actual ships listed on the counter and not task forces. I don't think he mentioned other ship classes and I think this is clearly not the case with the DD Farragut counter, which must be an entire squadron. I was wondering, though, if the entirety of the navy's CAs and CLs were meant to be represented by the CA and CL markers.

By chance, anyone know the answer to this one?

As far as I know, Plan Orange has the entire USN for that period to include the mothball ships.

Hi Mark,

Does that include the Caldwell, Wickes, and Clemson class destroyers that became part of the destroyers for bases agreement?

I am really enjoying Plan Orange. I only came to the hobby and discovered EotS about a year ago, but I've played dozens of games now, both using the solo system and against online and face to face opponents. The more I play either game the more impressed I am with how well the system abstracts unit strengths into the numbers on the counters. It has inspired me to do some research into the period and I suppose I am, in a sense, trying to peek under the hoods of these counters. Thanks for taking the time to respond!
