Here's my current carrier OOB and two screens worth of future arrivals:

The biggest addition will be USS Essex in December 1942, and during the first half of 1943 there should be a surge of CVL and CVE arriving along with a couple of Essexes, so by July 1st, 1943 Molon Lobe should easily outnumber anything the Japanese can muster even if they don't lose any of their carriers until then.
I need to mention that we are playing with variable arrival dates, so arrivals might be +/- 30 days from their actual historical arrivals. This helps prevent the opposing player from knowing exactly when something is going to show up.

It's going to be a bit rough until mid-1943 thanks to losing all of the Yorktown class. And all 3 of my active US fleet carriers are due for lengthy refits in October, so I'm going to have to rotate those 3 out of service for that. Probably one at a time, but I might see if I can get away with a twofer. Wasp vs Japan!
