Attaching Detaching Carrier Air Groups

Carrier Air Groups represent an air wing that has both fighter and torpedo plane capabilities and is able to base itself on an aircraft carrier. These are effectively treated as a "naval brigade" and are attached and detached in exactly the same way that land brigades are attached to divisions. A CAG may only be attached to an aircraft carrier and a carrier may only act as a base for one CAG at a time. Without a CAG, a carrier effectively loses its military value. Since CAGs are aircraft, a carrier's effectiveness is also greatly hampered by adverse weather conditions.
