Hi all,

I would have sworn that there was an AAR/walk through for one or both of these small scenarios posted, but now that I have some time to once again spend some time with this game and the latest update, I cannot find them.

Am I mis-remembering?

Not enough troops to capture Port Moresby. I recaptured Lunga and Tulagi and took Milne Bay and then ended the scenario.

It's enough to capture PM with original troops on transports TF.

Coral Sea is pretty straightforward tiny scenario. Basicly both sides have only one goal. It's more like a tutorial.

Guadalcanal is different. More strategic options with very limited resources and small bases. IMO Guadalcanal gives best feeling how the war was actually fought.

Coral Sea Scenario is to training your CV tactical skill,
and Guadalcanal Scenario is to training not only CV tactical but also amphibious skills.

And the challenge continues in Marianas. Pretty impossible to slay all Allied CV's. Surface task forces are the best bet to reduce them and kill amphibious fleets. Japanese carriers should try to avoid enemy carriers and strike undefended targets.

I have locked situation going on. Americans are on the Saipan beach with slightly bigger force, but still not able to attack.

I have replayed the Coral Sea scenario recently and have some thoughts about it. Maybe some new players may find them useful.

Japanese side:
Your two carriers can operate more aircraft then they start with. Divide the Zero unit at Rabaul and fly 9 Zeros to Shokaku and 9 Zeros to Zuikaku. Also, move the small Kate unit from CVL Shoho to either Zuikaku or Shokaku to boost your torpedo bomber numbers. As the Japanese you are slightly disadvantaged, since your dive bombers carry 250kg bombs, while Allies have 1000lb bombs. Torpedoes are far more deadly than bombs (torpedoes can easily penetrate CV and BB belt armor), provided your torpedo attack is performed in clear weather, and they are weapon of choice when dealing with Allied capital ships.

Your carriers can take some punishment, provided they are lucky. Watch combat animation and see how 1000lb bombs bounce off your CV's belt armor (their belt armor raring is 165). The Shokaku shrugged off three such hits in my recent game with only 19 system damage accrued.

CL Yubari with its puny AA guns is a sailing coffin. Best is to detach her at start and retire her to Rabaul.

Allied side:
CV Yorktown is made from reinforced paper-mache and gets sunk almost every time in this scenario. She is lacking in armor and her belt armor rating is only 100. Better park her under the LRCAP umbrella from Port Moresby. Fly in some Warhawks from Australia and some B-25 bombers, so they can scare the Japs with they 100 feet bombing runs.

If your Wildcats get diverted to Port Moresby (because CV Yorktown is on fire), remember they sport 2 x 100lb bombs at 100 feet and some nice .50 MGs, so they can form a last-ditch attempt at stopping Japanese amphibious TF with strafing runs.

There are plenty of troops for the Japanese to take PM. But they are NOT all on troop transports. It calls for "out of the box" thinking.


And as has been said before, the Japanese do have more carrier capable aircraft than are aboard ship. Use 'em!


As far as the allies go, just don't let the Japanese take PM. You can lose every ship, plane, and electron trooper and still win if you can delay Japan long enough. The secret to winning as the Japanese is , your enemy is NOT the allies! It's time! Waste everything EXCEPT time.

you guys can have your fun.

the Coral Sea scenario is a 'training' exercise for CV TF combat, augmented by whatever land-based airgoup search.

the Guadalcanal scenario is the next step up. Can you protect your AmphTF against enemy reaction?
