I was an almost maxed super carrier pilot, and now, I have fighters 5, heavy fighters 5, fighter hangar management 4, but no light or support fighters, so I need to train a new skill to be able to do what I already could?

Pretty sure light and support fighters are new, so you have to train a new skill to do something you couldn't previously.

All of the original fighters are now light fighters

Did you look at the bonuses?

* Fighters: 5% damage bonus per level to all fighters
* Heavy Fighters: 5% damage bonus per level to heavy fighters
* Light Fighters: 5% velocity bonus to light fighters

If you train Light Fighters level 1, you will be as effective as you were before.

It's also worth noting that you only need light and support fighters to 4 to use their respective T2 craft. So its not too bad of a train IIRC. Less than a week for each to get to tech 2.

And T2 fighters did not exist before so its new stuff for everyone. Happy times for everyone other than those people getting blapped by fighters.

Yeah i hit the same wall went to test out the new fighter interface a few days ago on SISI and couldn't load Firbolgs into my Thanatos, go to find out they added those 2 new skills, and while the 2 and a half weeks ill spend training them for T2 is negligible at best the fact that i had to go out of the way to drop 200m to do something i could do before was irksome. I'm over it now though water under the bridge really, and 110% worth it for the improvement they are over the others which i thought were the best they had ever been.
