While using the editor, I noticed that the tonnage listed for all ships is Standard tonnage,and not full load, as they would be at time of war,this would increase the ships tonnage by between 4 - 8 thousand tons on average ?


Tonnage is only interesting when the ship is docked, and especially when it's being repaired, and no ship would be going into drydock fully loaded. That's the reason.

Fuso and Yamashiro use the bitmaps of ise and hyuga when the upgrade

No, they do not. There are quite a few "vest pocket" possibilities that exist in the database, but are not implemented. The Ise/Hyuga graphics ONLY come into play if Fuso/Yamashiro are "converted" into a BB(S). Not bloody likely.

Remember that there's not just old-fashioned upgrades, but also conversions nowadays. Please don't make assumptions based on stock; it's a brand-new ballgame.

CA Oregon City is in scen 1 a Baltimore class but she was leadship of her class and the ETA is wrong too, it is 16 March 1945 in game but her commissioning was on 16 February 1946.

Database typo, should be Oregon City Class # 406

CL Fargo has the wrong picture, in AE she looks like a Cleveland class but she has only one stack and her fire control equipment was at other locations.

Nope, Fargo uses the Cleveland image. Correctly listed as a Cleveland 42 Design, but no separate image.

Atlanta an Oakland classes: their 5in/38 Mk 12 EBR have an armor rating of 31, other classes with this weapon has only 5.

We'll look into it.


But Fargo was lead ship in her class, Fargo class, wich was a result of redesigning the Cleveland class in 1942, Fargo looked a bit like a Cleveland class but their where differences. Now why a Cleveland class image?

Holy cow! Fargo doesn't show up till '46, and you are complaining about the art??? She's not even done from the yard at surrender time. Give us a break.

Maybe we can do a Fargo image, but for 1 ship in '46? Well, I think you had best consider Cleveland as an alternative.

Copahee`s VRF-3B arrives with no airplanes unlike all other VRFs

Victorious arrives with TBF Avengers. No 832 SQN FAA

I know it operated with USNavy, but should it not be Avengers I ?

BTW Avenger I and Avenger II have the same operational date as 3/44. Avenger I should be earlier

Not such a horrendously large issue but USCGC TANEY (Treasury Class PC in WitP: Navy called her a PG) should withdraw from the Pacific in Feb 43. The refit armament configuration shown for 9/42 never happened to her (though all of her sisters already in the Atlantic had that fit). It does appear that she may have received 20mm before that refit though since there is a picture on the USCG Historian's Website that shows her with a couple of 20mm abaft the stack at the same time as she displayed a 5"/51cal on her stern. When she was rearmed in early 1943 she received a completely unique fit of 4 x 5"/38 in single mounts AND SHE WAS TRANSFERRED TO THE ATLANTIC/MED. She came back to the Pacific in late 1944 with the armament fit shown in AE though.

It sorta devolves to an OOB issue because of the game mechanics since HMS Repulse and HMS Prince of Wales are conveniently hanging their posteriors out for the Nipponese to bite during the first turn of the historical scenario and the Allied Player has no choices to make but simply gets to watch while the Nells/Bettys put enough torpedoes into each to insure that neither can possibly figure into the Japanese Players calculations for the rest of the battles of Malaya or the DEI. BTW the same sense of ahistoricality (must be a new word invented by me) is the air cover (inadequate) that the TF gets. Does allowing the Allied Player to make his own choices with these two ships totally unbalance the game?

Not really a compromise is it - so far I have lost the two ships before 10 Dec 41 on each time I have fired up the scenario. Now I am not RADM Phillips, I know what aeroplanes and their torpedoes can do to my shiny battlewaggons and I can see the bigger picture, but as they get detected and therefore attacked every single time on 7 Dec 41 what can I do...
If the Japanese get me every time, the person making the upgrades wasted their time and effort as the 'historical' first turn manages consistently to do what the Japanese did not...
I can accept the PH lottery, but this is not a lottery, it's pointless.

(Edit - Of course if naval search really is that good, then I am looking forward to any Sigint reports that allow me to arrange a little surprise for the IJN carriers in early/mid 42)

I am still learning all the ship types and had 2 questions.

1. I saw 2 x AMC in Vancouver. Per the manual pg 275 an AMC is a Armed Merchant Cruiser, and in the notes it says "Capable of performing escort roles and of carrying troops and supplies." But when i make a cargo TF. The AMC's are listed under Capacity as 0 Troops and 0 Cargo. How do the AMC carry supplies then?

2. Was trying to figure out how Special mine layers are and how they work. I have a AM ="Mine Sweeper" in Dutch Harber and was trying to see if it could lay mines. Per p.281 an AM is allowed in a Mine Laying Task Force.
Per 6.6.1.3.2.2 says "Any ship (including minelayers) that does not otherwise carry mines, may be configured to carry mines when assigned to a TF with a minelaying mission. These special mines may be in any weapon slot. ".
That seems to say that may ship that you assign to a mine laying TF can be configured to carry mines. But when i try to create a Mine laying TF in Dutch Harbor, it is not an option. Does the ship have to have a weapon slot that says mines to be allowed? Would that show up in the in game Ship Database?
Why would a ship that is already a Minelayer not carry mines and need this rule to be allowed to lay mines? Why the clause "(including Minelayers)"?

Whilst I would like the IJN Player to have every possible advantage duiring the period of Japanese expansion I'm not sure I'm s0 sure about giving such advantages right from the start without at least an Allied Player turn where he)she could change something.

AM is a minesweeper. A purpose built minelayer is a CM. Otherwise read the section 6.6 "Mine Warfare and Mine Taskforces" of the manual.

Hey don't yell at Termy for this one - this was my call (as I've indicated on other threads about the same topic). The "historical start" for scenario 1 allows the possibility that the historical result occurs (Repulse, PoW sunk). This is far from automatic and the testers have indicated - but it is a possibility. If a given player wants a guarantee that PoW and Repulse survive, then that player may advocate for the non-historical start - or may play scenario 6. I got the idea from the original WITP (SPI 1978) so hardly a new one!

While trying out some of the new stuff I found what seems to be a bit of an awkward part of the new patrol zone controls.

I was playing the Coral Sea scenario as the Japanese and setting the subs to patrol zones. It is indeed a neat feature (well done, gentlemen!). The subs started on computer control. I was able to switch to human control and set both waypoints and patrol zones of several types. Then I set one sub for a single defined destination hex (DH) and then decided I wanted a patrol zone. I couldn't set a patrol zone because I had a defined location and there was no way I could see to cancel that. After some experimentation I found that setting the destination to the home port allowed the patrol zone controls to be un-greyed and available again. I guess this is an ok work-around and doesn’t need a fix but maybe should be in the manual errata/extras in due course.

Apologies if this is old news.

This is intentional. The idea for patrol zones is you start and end at your home port - then you go out and patrol - then you return and refuel/rearm ... and then go patrol some more.

Some but not all AMC can carry troops and supplies. It depends entirely on what attributes they were given in the editor. The RCN "Prince" class AMC do not have any troop or cargo capacity defined - so they can go into transport TFs as an escort. Most or all of the British, Australian, and Japanese AMC do have capacity and can perform the dual role of transport and escort.

Basically there are two types of minelayers:

1. Regular minelayers are ships of the defined minelaying types: CM, CMc, DM. The primary duty of such ships is to lay mines and you would expect to see mines defined normally as weapons of these ships. How many mines varies by class and could be anything from zero on up.

2. Special minelayers are ships whose primary duty is not minelaying but have minelaying capability. They would have minelaying capability because it was defined for their class in the editor. This would be mines as a weapon, with some special notation in the way it is entered as a device. Thus a DD, for instance, that was given minelaying capability in the editor, could load mines if placed into a minelaying TF, and lay them just like a regular minelayer.

Any, or almost any ship can be a special minelayer. But it has to be so set up in the editor.

There is, or should be, a clear destination button in the upper right hand corner of the TF Routing screen. Not sure if it works for a non-base destination though. If not, it will probably have to stay that way for a while. The setting of destination to the home port is a good workaround.

Well, sure, and historically Hiroshima got nuked by a B-29, but not right off the bat.

More importantly though, HMS Cornwall has a Type 281 radar. Per ADM 1/12269, the British report on the loss of Dorsetshire and Cornwall, Cornwall had no RDF fitted.

Also, British VADM Willis, A. N.'s name is incorrect. He's Vice-Admiral Algernon Usborne Willis; his middle initial is a U. A minor gripe, but he's one of my favorite British admirals, albeit not a well-known one.

By definition, the "Historical Start" automates everything that happened on December 7, 1941. And by almost every conceivable measure, it's clear that the Bombing of Pearl Harbor was the opening act of the Pacific War - certainly the war being modeled by AE. With that rule in mind, a minimal amount of research shows that TF "Z" set sail from Singapore at 1710 on December 8, 1941. However, that time needs to be converted to Honolulu time, since that was "ground zero", and in effect the "Greenwich Meantime" from which all other 12/7 activities must be calculated. And when you run the numbers, it turns out that Repulse and PoW departed Singapore harbor at 11:10 PM on December 7th, 1941.

Sorry. Automated it is, and automated it should stay.

In my Campaign game both PoW and Repulse survived their Turn One ordeal; a flight of Buffaloes disrupted enough of the Nells that PoW was not hit and Repulse only damaged by 3 torpedoes (although she's still staggering into Singapore with 80 Flotation damage), so variables do take place.

What? How can 5:10 in the afternoon of December 8th (local time) be 11:10 on the 7th? Singapore is 6 time zones West of PH, so the PH attack took place at 2AM on the 8th Singapore local time. POW and Repulse upped anchor more than 15 hours after PH took place..., and almost at the end of the local day. If you want to go by Hawaiian time, remember that 11:10 PM is after night has has fallen..., which in game terms is the first (night) phase of turn two.

It's simply a game device to make the POW/Repulse vulnerable. Historically they sailed North and were sunk (two days later)..., but as few players will make that choice it's been taken out of their hands... If you don't like it, don't play the "historical start".

Similar thing happened to me. PoW and Repulse both survived after the Buffs managed to disrupt the incoming strike. PoW took 2 and Repulse waas hit by three, both are in Singers now but will be long gone by the end of Dec 41. She had a lot less flot damage than yours though

Seems to take long to extinguish ship fires, even in big port like Pearl Harbor.
Also AI seems to not assign enough escorts for his landing task forces, like 3 merchants

Hi Speedy. I'm not seeing where it says a turret has been knocked out. It is possible for a single gun in a turret to be damaged while the other(s) is(are) still usable.

Hi Whipple,

The Rear 14" Guns have reduced from 6 to 5. Can AE distinguish between Barrel loss vs Turret loss then?

Seems like it does. Pretty cool. I've only seen it so far on BB's, so I have no evidence that it will/will not occur on smaller ships.

AE keeps amazing me.
