I'm curious why e.g. reduced battleships often have halve the strength of a full unit, while reduced carriers are much stronger.
Is there an idea behind this decision or is it just coincidence?
(two unequal carriers grouped together and the weaker is supposed to sink before the stronger)
Most naval units represent multiple capital ships and escorts. In the case of carriers and keeping with the historical carrier battle outcomes, the flipped side for most CVs is the loss of just one carrier and no escorts. In most surface ship units it represents loss of the named capital ship and an equal slice of the escorts.
