Yeah...

That's 52 units in total, 4 carriers, 2 frigates, and 46 fighter wings. Holy crap.

Edit: Actually that might have been two fleets, but one of them only had like three fighter wings and maybe a frigate left after a previous battle.

Yeah, fighters... hmm. That's looking like too many for the carriers deployed, too. That's actually a crazy ratio. I need to take a look, might be a bug (or just an unintentional combination of things) if this ratio is common.
From what I have seen, it is. Most fleets that I see have around one third to one half of their fleets being fighters

That by itself might be already (especially for fighter-doctrine factions like Tri-Tachyon), but if they're not supported by adequate carriers, then that's really a problem.

What is your "minimum" level of support? (IE how many fighters per flight deck) I'll try to keep a look out for fleets that have large numbers of fighters and not enough carriers and get screencaps

I don't remember what the code is doing off the top of my head, but I'd say something about 5:1 is excessive. Ideally it'd probably aim for 3 wings per deck, but I'm sure it's not coded to that level of detail - it's more like "X small carriers, Y wings", with some variance. No need to get screencaps, though thank you for offering - I think at this point it's pretty clear that it's not doing a good job of it, and I'll be looking at the code.

Well I just fought a pirate fleet that had, among other things, two condors for twelve (!) wings.
