As part of the new release, there's an opportunity for us to include some carrier aviation if we wanted to. The Marinha do Brasil (Brailian Navy) operates the aircraft carrier São Paulo, which happens to have previously been the French aircraft carrier Foch, which we have a working model for. They also happen to operate Douglas AF-1 Skyhawks (aka A4 Skyhawk), which we also have, albeit not in the appropriate livery and not quite up to date avionics. If anyone is interested in doing so, it might be a nice enhancement to include an AI scenario with the Foch off the coast of Rio, and include livery support on the A4 to match the Marinha do Brasil. As Brazil is one of the few countries operating CATOBAR aircraft carriers, it seems a fine opportunity to add an additional international flavour to the sim for the upcoming release.<ref>{{cite web
