Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Most of coastal North Africa is well within range of land-based fighter-bombers operating out of Malta, Spain, the Greek archipelago or Sicily. I don't see a particularly pressing need for carriers, even in a case where a full-up amphibious assault would be needed (and frankly I find such a scenario a little hard to imagine in the first place, but maybe that's just me).
