aircraft carriers seem to be somewhat useful. as FW190F said, they are good at defense. if u look at the math, you gain 3-3-4 at 38 IPC when playing basic AA. Also, carriers make decent assault platforms for attacking aircraft. if youre really into navy stuff in your game, theyre probably useful in combination with subs and destroyers and battleships. personally i never got around to it since my basic naval strategy is depending on my available cash and opposing air power, either go for a ton of battleships or build submarines and get the supersub tech advance. personally i think AC are a waste of time, and a better use for your airpower is to go with the longrange aircraft and heavy bombing tech advances and bring down death from the skies simply by hopping between friendly land territories and blowing up land, air and sea unit all the way around. whatever thats my 2 cents.

RE: Operation Barbarossa
not really. Operation Barbarossa requires not focusing on any other front. its been awhile since i played AAE (i started playing AAE then switched to normal AA), but i remember that if russia uses a stack defense strategy on Belorussia, he can hold the line long enough for the allies to amass a successful stranglehold attack. The Allies have alot more resources than the germans do, and germany has to either take russia by storm or lose. Russia can pretty much hold the line by using a stack. that was my experience playing it.
