Sorry if this is not the correct way to post pictures but it only lets me post one at a time. The last picture of the Kates attacking.

What range did the Kates engage from? It looks like you attacked at extended range, and so used bombs instead of torpedoes.

8 hexes, so it was too far for the Vals. How does the range affect torpedo attacks?

Edit: apparently this is the extended range (over 7) for Kates and because of this they could not use torpedoes. I just did not know this, my mistake. Solved, thanks :)!

The engine under goes a bunch of die roll checks to use torpedoes. The checks include the value of the target, but it's the value based on the spotting report, which can be wrong with FOW on. Maybe the spotter plane reported seeing destroyers?

99% of the time Kates should carry torpedoes under those circumstances, but there are always cases where things happen oddly. Just like real life.

Edit: missed the last page before replying. It does look like it was the max range strike issue.

Thanks for the elaboration about the dice rolls Bill! Sorry about the frustration once again.

As Alfred states, there are a lot of reasons this could happen.  You haven't posted nearly enough data for anyone to answer.  You need to show a screen shot of the two TF's with your mouse hovering over the allied TF to show that tooltip.  Then show a screen shot of the Kate airgroup screen.  At that point we may have enough to start making some supported conjecture.

BTW: you are posting in the wrong place for your question. This is for data updates. You should just post in the MAIN forum. You will get more assist.

I think this issue was solved already by the extended range issue. I don't know why this would be the wrong forum for my question. I'm sorry if I have broken some unwritten rule of forum behavior :/.

This thread worked, but I think PaxMondo was pointing out that most people will start a new thread if they have an issue like this come up. Many of the sticky threads are already very long and new questions may get lost in the shuffle and not as many people will read it. Your chances of getting an answer are better with a new thread.

What is up with the TBF-1 Avenger and the ASB Radar.
First the Avenger comes in 5.42 but the Radar on 6.42, is the radar now already in use in May when the plane enters?
Furthermore all I found about the Avenger and the ASB Radar was that it either only got into "late production models" or "by the end of 1942".
Having the Avenger with radar and that already in the summer of 1942 seems way too much too early.

Who how does clean out the large air fields with the decent amount of fighters ? And put sweep... so they by installments fly that very not advantageously when enemies are much...

This depends on assumptions, but i am seeing Venturas, A-20's, Hudson's with a crew of 2. They had only one pilot position and usually only one pilot.

I believe the Ventura and Hudson had crew positions for a co-pilot, but it wasn't always used. The Lockheed bombers were converted airliners.

In the manual(Ventura) and pilot notes(Hudson) they don't have co-pilot position.
