What kinds of planes where the Germans launching from the Graf Zeppelin? Did the Germans improvise with their aircraft carriers?
The original idea was to use carrier variants of the Me-109 fighter, Ju-87 dive bomber and Fi-167 scouting bi-plane. Later on, when work on the ship itself was resumed, R&D into new aircraft variants/designs was ordered but ultimately nothing came of this. Commitment to the aircraft carrier project was too lukewarm and inconsistent for much time, attention & resources to be invested specialized carrier aircraft
