I'd still rather bag a CV or two, you are so tantalisingly close, a few AP/AK's aren't going to make a difference in the short term, but a CV or two would.
As Micheal said, set the search, double check what Cap you think appropriate, 50~70% for me during CV to CV battles, except when I'm trying to slay his fighters, with extra fighters on board (a little gamey) ... and give it a go, CV 2 CV battles can be a rarity, especially with Sir Robin ... take a chance you might not get a second look for some time. Also depending on what you think I usually have my TB set to the same range as my max DB (5 iirc) AND CAP AT 5 too ... of course you are running around, not knowing where he might go, so maybe the max TB, might be better in this instance.
Having said all that, I do try to kill as many AP/AK's as I can early on, but it is more of a LB thing than CV's.
Cheers and have a good one.
 last point remember, he is probably running low on fuel, depending on where he refueled, and those Ak/AP's are going to scatter to the wind ...
Ok you have won me over and thinking on it the reason for sending KB out there was to hunt down that carrier. Your point regarding his fuel has been lurking around my though process too....maybe the plan was to head back to Johnston Island for a refuel. I have decided on the below course for KB. It does take KB a bit close to Johnston Island but it should keep them in contact if that task force keeps up a SSE heading. Hopefully not to far south though if Todd should decide to move in a NE course. I don't think Todd will stay in the area he is in because he is just within range of bombers based at Kwajalein (albeit bombers without fighter escort) so I'm thinking he is going to have to make a run for it in one direction or the other. Possibly the interest my scouts have shown in Midway might convince him that it will be safe to scoot through to Johnston Island.
Thanks heaps Damian for your thoughts. It has me helped me to think through the possibilities.
Kido Butai, although powerful, was a raiding force, and this is exactly how the Japanese understood its usage. 'Shattered Sword'
