Larry, you can double all vehicle factories, and even that is not too much. Also, eventually you need much bigger Kate factory, size 5 factory is only producing 5 planes a month.
Did you mean to say double ALL the vehicle factories? And then you'll need even more? Really? For sure? Well, I must say, that's astounding. BUT alright.......let's do it. Thanks. And about the Kate factories......um I was told to be careful and cautious etc. when changing stuff in the economy and thought it sounded like good advice etc. BUT you're correct......5 planes a month isn't nearly enough. I predict that I'm going to need about 10 times that amount. I plan on being aggressive and bold but not reckless so I'm probably going to loose a lot of stuff...like Kates. Your advice is sound, sounds like to me.
BTW, good first turn with allied battleships, it seems that you definitely got 4 of them, maybe 6.
Yeah, but FOW considerations dictate that it's an engenious trap to get me to try invading the Pearl base using only my DD's so they can sink each and every one of them with their supposedly "sunk" BB's. Although, if it's true then yeah, I can live with that.
About the unescorted bomber strikes, early in the war it helps to fly them really low (let's say at a 1000 feet). The fighters will have trouble intercepting them while patrolling at higher altitudes.
Don't do this at bases that have low altitude CAP and/or a lot of light flak guns.
Sounds like a plan to me. I like to surprise my opponent....keeps him guessing. I dare say he'll probably put some AA at all his forward bases to thwart such a bold ploy. I say let's try it.
