Naval aircrafts... does that include civilian hydroplanes? Or is it just military aircrafts?

A C-130 is not a Naval Aircraft, that screenshot is disqualified, you can re-submit if you'd like!
Actually, I think you should let this one be Venom. The C-130 is actually used by the US Navy and Marine Corps, even though it may not be used on a carrier, there are other aircraft that are naval that do not go on carriers as well (P-8 Orion).

I believe what venom is referring to are the USAF markings not the aircraft itself.

Just gonna leave this here...

pre-1962...

oh cool another...

but wait there's more!

more?

Yes!

Please no more!

Just some lists of Russian Japanese British and American naval aircraft. I think that any aircraft that's been flown by any navy is a naval aircraft, as long as it portrays the designated insignias and stickers. So a 737 will qualify as a naval aircraft as long as it says "Property of the United States of America's Navy" on its behind.

The picture of the C-130 says USAF though, which could still be argued "naval" since it's not uncommon for the navy to use USAF aircraft for their own logistics operations. However, since there are USMC C-130's in YS that could have been used instead, I agree that that photo should be disqualified. The other photo of the A-10 should also be disqualified because the A-10 is pretty much completely conventional and never has been used in any navy for any naval purposes, even though it was proposed at some point.

Do C-130's land on a carriers? No. End discussion. Unless the aircraft has navy insignia, it is not a navy aircraft. He is disqualified.

If you want it that way, change the rules to "carrier-based aircraft", because otherwise you're not going to win this argument :|

I could name quite a few non-carrier-based naval aircraft that DO qualify as naval aircraft because they DO say Navy on them.

Gentleman this is supposed to be a fun contest for the participants not a lesson in navel air power or an excuse to flame one another and Venom is the arbiter here.If you want to continue to argue with him take it to PMs.

Idk why he's trying to argue with me on this. I meant carrier-based aircraft. I have edited the rules accordingly.

I expect that the markings on all 4 aircraft are sufficient to class those particular examples as carrier aircraft, even though the paint jobs are purely "what-if", as YSMajor's caption indicated.

Those aircraft are from a fictional pack, which was meant to include carrier based aircraft REPRESENTING a naval squadron, therefore the A-10 is a fictional naval variant.
