Bought the game when Matrix released it. The doesn't seem very real or historical with some of its out comes.

Such as one complete TG(16.1) (11 or 12 ships ) all sunk! Kind of out there, don't you guys think.

Oh well, not putting the game down, just my thoughts on the combat results.

I'm not sure what the problem is. Carriers at War models the possible rather than the actual, otherwise every scenario would just be a replay of historical events.

Given the lethality of aircraft vs ship combat, then sinking all the ships in a TG was a possibility, even if it didn't actually happen in the limited number of historical engagements.

You will find that most of the time, some ships in a TG will get away, it just can't be guaranteed.

Ok, that I can understand. I don't need the same histoical losses. Just want them in the ball park. But your answer makes sence. Thanks for your response.
