results regardless should be historically accurate, Corsair should in fact claim high numbers against zero's in A2A, however not in the numbers WITP give, but smaller numbers.
In one of my current PBEMs I was consistently getting between 2:1 and 4:1 against A6M3s and Tojos on the dark skies above Darwin. The P-38s and P-40s could not sweep the skies, but once I was able to put 40 corsairs in the air at once, the skies were quickly swept of foes. On a side note, I have not seen a clear sky over Darwin since battles began there in June of 42, now April of 43. Not a place I would want to visit, severe storms almost every day in AE!
Your making me drool over AE, i'm slowly pecking away in my final campaign in WITP, date is 12/43, just landed next to Manila, so far its been one pretty good game, however japan has really disappeared since the battle of port moresby, I rarely see planes in the air or any japanese ships. Guess the AI can only do so much when it has absolutely no oil.
