No one is criticising, Grits. Please read the posts. Both T and I said we think Andy's scen is just fine. We are discussing the details NAVMAN's lack of sufficient lift. Which, btw, we got some suggestions for.
EC2 USATs are slugs. I wouldn’t bother with them – too slow (sorta like the difference between the Mayo Clinic and a Tourniquet). Instead of those, I might think about Haskell APAs. The stock OOB only has 43 Haskells. There was really about 100 of these (give or take). DaBabes has 74. I know it’s a cut-and-paste pita, but you get 30 more Haskells, and that ain’t bad.
If it hasn’t already been done, kill the withdraw dates and bring back Aquitania, and the Queens, West Point, Wakefield, Mt Vernon, Hermitage, Monticello.
Bit harder stuff:
Perhaps add 6 more Coolidge/Matson types, representing Ile de France, and a bunch of Dutch ‘Something’dams; and add 6-8 Grace types or maybe half and half Grace and Canada Pacific types, representing the mid-size Atlantic passenger humpers.
That should do the deed. If you do 2 and 3, you probably won’t have to mess with the Haskells, but they might come in handy for the Kyushu assault, so think hard before shining them out.
btw, we do 'same speed' TFs of Haskells and regular VC2s to hump 'hard load' units, and save the passenger stuff for the 'troop heavy' units. There's some very nice big-fast C3s coming on line that are very good for arty and tank units. And don't forget them 27 Admiral/General C4s.
