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.
