In C++ can I have an array of Classes which I can randomly access with an index {0,1,2,3,...} the way I can have an array of Integers accessed as a[k]?

You can have an array of any type (including classes):
int a1[10];
MyClass a2[10];

You may also want to have a look at the vector class (part of the Standard Template Library or STL) for an object-oriented array.  There are plenty of other array-like structures in the STL as well.

One more thing to point out is that an array of items (classes or not) contains only copies of what is placed in them.  If you want to reference the original objects or variables, you'll need to have an array of pointers.
MyClass *a3[10];
