From: Cape Canaveral, Florida
Next time I get a turn - presumably tonight - I'll put up some screenies and such so you can see the exact situation.
Question are you playing Japanese or Allies? Because I bombed the hell out of Koggala before I landed there as a Japanese player, I had Betties coming out of Port Arthur as well as the KB to bomb the port only (shore batteries were more of a problem then a few pesky hurricanes).
He took Ceylon, but it's become His Majesty's Prison Ceylon as there are plenty of well developed Indian airbases in range jammed with air units.
Koggala has become very important as it's the only Ceylon port out of range of Vengeance Is and TBFs from the Indian mainland, Trincomalee and Colombo are no-IJN zones. It's where he lands the odd supply convoy, and I can't use wimpy (literally) level bombers very effectively into massive CAP. Koggala needs to be suppressed as well, but I can't do it for whatever reason.
Its possible his CAP is to high, while your escorts/bombers experience are to low to pass criteria to fly.
They may hit Trimcomalee and Colombo due to less CAP
