GRR.


I had 3 Carrier Groups of total 15 Ships in Each, It was 220 Carrier pLanes in Each, we are 7 Jan 1943.
Also have a CS in each with some 25 ALF on Navel Search at 90%


I meat with the Allied Carriers, who i know was comming and had seen in advanse, I had Put the Carriers up and was waiting on him...



But, my planes did not lunch, and all of his did, so the entire Jap Carrier Force in the battle was Destroyd.
The 3rd Carrier Group did not get attacked, and did not attack either.

If 3rd CG was in range could be the TF commanders ability(or lack of it), Weather, or just the game...

what do you expect with a Cap of 56 Zeroes? And where did the 70+ Vals come from?

Well, it looks like you did launch -some- sort of strike...but without any escorts it got cut up. Were all these CVTFs in the same hex? Hard to believe the CAP being that weak if that was the case.

Well, thats the thing,    the Combat Patrol should been 81 Zeros and 84 Zeros,  was arround half.

And there was no Jap Attack of Size.

Thay attacked with 3% of the planes instead of all when actualy attacking.

And also, all was Rested, Repaired, Experienced ect ect...

Hi, Several questions.  Bomber groups were set to Naval Attack.  You had search missions assigned.  What was fighter settings (escort/CAP percentage)  There are penalties for having too many CV in a single TF.  Also TF commander air rating impact result.  However all this considered you should have had a counter strike unless groups were set to mission other then Naval attack.
Do you have saves before you entered orders for that turn?

What altitude settings for the Vals & Kates?  This could also effect co ordination of attacks.

Hi,

You didn't forget any Target setting on the groups after attacking a land target? This would at least affect the fighters so they would not join in an attack against ships.

"Both had All Search Planes on 90% "

Is it possible that your attack aircraft were set up this way?  Just trying to help.

This is most likely your problem. Your fighters were waiting to attack some specified land target and were sitting on the deck. Your strike aircraft usually wont fly unless escort to CAP ratio is something like 1:3 minimum, something like that. Look at your fighters mission and target.

I've noticed this on bases and it probably works the same at sea. If you have the cloud settings on you'll see it during the phases where sometimes there is a storm image over the base. The aircraft at that base or in that sea hex will not launch sorties but can and will be attacked. I've even seen this happen when the forecast was overcast. It is possible that the US CV fleet had clear weather for the launch but you did not. Your CAP should still fly.

Another note... Leaders have more to them than just these traits. Pay closer attention to the Air Skill.

Question:

You said the date was 7 JAN 43. How did the Americans manage to get Hellcats so soon?

very easy to explain now... if you have a cloud above your carriers you can´t launch, your enemy can attack you though.

Ah yes, that bug in the game engine. In reality, if you're socked in, any attackers can't see you either, and in any case, the advantage of CAP is dramatically increased--you can take off and land in conditions where you can't bomb accurately.

just to quantify this - im trying to perfect the jap start up position on 7 dec - lots of trial and error, twiddle this, save, end turn, watch replay, fix, twiddle continue. For the last six turns the Pearl Harbour raid hasnt happened at all due to bad weather - cap goes up to defend against the entire Pearl aircraft force that comes to get me, but no bombing run - not sure how id feel if that happened in a PBEM!!!!

Hi, The 2 exceptions to escort rule (won't fly without escorts) are carrier bombers and allied 4 engine bombers.  They do not require the escort check.

Thanks for your analyze Gents.

I can verefie after checking, that ALL PLANES and all other factors i can come up with, All Planes and Ships had Proper Orders and avverage leders on 88-95 for all Air Groups, and also good Air Skill and Agression.
ALL leders involved from the Fleet Level to the Individual Aircraft was skilled and good for their position, l
All involved from the Emmely Groups to the Captains on each Destroyer.


I also did some testing, and are personaly now convinsed that  OSO's Analyse is correct,  thanks for the help all.

I don't see why you're complaining. Your CAP was far more effective than any IJN CAP could have been at the time.

I am the lucky fellow that sank Japan's carriers. It seems to me I was quite lucky in that his carriers were in two separate TF's and they were separated by 2 or 3 hexes. My carriers were all in one hex and got the jump on him and overwhelmed the first set of carriers in the morning phase. His other carriers launched the ill fated counter strike. In the afternoon phase, my carriers did a repeat performance on the remaining three carriers, and they never got off much of a retaliation, though his CAP did a much better job of chewing up my fighters. I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of an effective counterstrike, but the above discussion seems to shed light on that. I deliberately stayed out of that cold temperate zone specifically because of the weather issue once I suspected I was falling into a trap. He apparently was stalking my carriers out there. I suspected it for a variety of reasons. One of my SBD's spotted one of his subs the day before, and that of course tipped him off of my general location, which was somewhat east of where the battle was fought while I was en route to go help the Aleutians in a big offensive of his. Knowing this, and knowing he knew or suspected all this, I reversed direction to try and throw him off the scent. I reversed right into him, and the rest is newly revamped history. Go figure.

Someone asked about the Hellcats showing up that early. The Essex joined my carriers just 2 days prior to the fight--very lucky there. She comes stocked with Hellcats, and that particular squadron I believe really gave me an edge against the CAP. The Wildcats suffered heavily. His CAP did very little against my attack aircraft, though he had a bit more success on my second raid.

All this said, don't feel too sorry for Japan. You, my friend, have been kicking me all over the map at your leisure the whole bloody game, so it's about time I had something go my way

HeHe Yep.

I have no complaints at all, just wanted to understand the moddel for this weather thing...


Now, it will be interesting to see how the development goes, Japan still has Hundreds of Dedicated and Elite Pilots Ready to make that other fellow die for his country... HeHe, See you on the Battlefield my freind.

It is early 1944 in my game as the Allies. I sent all my carriers to cover my invasion of the PI and he finally sent his carriers out for a fight. At this point the IJN had not lost a carrier and possesed all of the original expert pilots. My force was loaded with hellcats, helldivers and avengers and I was sure I could whup him big time. I set a beautiful trap and our carriers ended up squared off two hexes from each other. Well, neither carrier group launched a single strike at the other carrier force. His planes did attack my transport group 4 hexes away with CVEs as cover but it was a weak attack and poorly escorted. He damaged a CVE and I shot down about 100 planes. That was it. Next day I guessed one way and he skeddadled the other and my chance to sink his carriers was gone. It was obviously the weather and can happen. Truthfully, this sort of event is what makes the game fun. If I had smashed his carriers, the game would have been closer to over and less fun. It is now 4/44 and he has most of his fleet intact. I will get him soon.....

Seems to me separation of the Japanese carrier TF's is likely to have made a big difference. Would be interested to know the location and composition of the 3rd carrier TF - Hiyo + Junyo + CVL's? Also, was any proportion of the Japanese VT or VB flying search to supplement the floatplanes' efforts?

I infer that the TF with 198 a/c comprised Shokaku (28 x VF), Hiryu (23 x VF) and Soryu (23 x VF) yields 74 x VF max. Then: 50% CAP = 37 x VF max.

In turn, this implies that the TF with 221 a/c comprised Akagi, Kaga + Zuikaku (28 x VF apiece) yields 84 x VF max. Giving: 60% CAP = 50 x VF max.

Yet each TF put up CAP of 56 x VF. Did one/both receive additional CAP from CV TF 3? An escort of only 8 VF for the Japanese strike suggests a higher proportion of VF assigned CAP duties than 50-60%.

But, apart from the weather, dispersion and resulting lack of mutual support appears to me to have been the real killer.
