Smeulders, keep it up, like the format, your maps are very good and informative.
Listen to Major Mike on airplane production.
Here is another for the gallery, I am a recent convert to this: What about halting Musashi?
(I am particularly interested to hear what Major Mike thinks on this)
If you halt her, you can get Taiho in early 1943. If I had to pick a ship, I would pick Taiho; more valuable than Musashi.
I will say that surface combattants, as a whole, are more important in AE. But I would take a CV instead.
It breaks my heart to say that, because the COOL factor of the Yamatos is undeniable.
I would re-start Musashi in 1943 at some point. This also assumes you have halted SHINANO, which should be S.O.P for any Japanese player. That means that Musashi will be available in early 1944 or so, in time for your final battle.
