Better, at least in WC terms, to have a carrier and a cruiser with several destroyer escorts, so you can a) attack from multiple sides, and b) even if you lose one ship, you haven't lost all your capabilities.
Yeah, but either way I can't win. The only way I could win would be if I designed a cruiser with two detachable Destroyers which are normally attached, and then seperate a'la the saucer section in Star Trek and then function independantly after that!
