Time is FINALLY beginning to free itself up where I hope to get to work on releasing the next update from RA. I'd like to open it up for changes, modifications, and tweaks from people who played or are playing the Mod right now.

Also looking for issues with any artwork...

Have at it and thanks guys!

From Jap side - bearing in mind your mod has the Japanese more aware of the danger of the CV...

More AA upgrades for some of the Jap CA one lot only has one updgrade I think?

CLAA AA conversions options for most of the old CL?

The Agano class are not really worth the build compared to the Akizuki DD, how about making the Agano class better on AA upgrades making them more of a CLAA in the long run? Its tempting to stall the Aganos and accelerate all the DD, I am sure that is not what is intended.

FatR and I made the Aganos in our Mod along the lines of what was originally proposed with them serving as a strong CL with 4x3 turrets and keeping their strong TT attributes.

As to AA Upgrades we worked with the 3.9" heavy gun as our primary upgrade for all Japanese warships in 1942 and 1943. Priority is given to CV--CVLs first, then the immediate CV escorts, and finally the old BBs. As to an upgrade after that...hmmmm...might be possible. There is an upgrade path for the old CLs to become CLAAs. Did you not find that?

Was looking through my 'to do' list and saw that I need to make all the Kaskaskia American AOs available for early conversion to CVEs. This is a mistake from the the earlier Mod Versions that needs to be corrected. The Americans are to have about 10 possible quickie CVE conversions when the war begins that would be available in late-42/early-43 if the Allied player desires.

In RA we also made the Manchurian aircraft industry into several lines and have them as Army production lines. There are two lines to start with and someone suggested going to 4 small (5 Plane) lines. This allowed us to close out IJA Lines in the Home Islands and convert them over to IJN.

I see the Aganos in your mod are more intended as surface units to fight? OK fair enough but I always thought these guys as CV escorts - its ok I will re think them in my game. Please look at one of the Torps on them as I think it says rear facing??The other is Centre.
yes I see some of the old CL have odd upgrades whcich make them useful later
The real Issu is the CA . Some of them do not even get radar and only one modest upgrade or am I looking at it in correctly.

i asume your mod can be updated for games in progress Dan and I are now in mid July 42. I am sure Dan would like the CVE conversions.

I thought it was the Neosho* AOs that need to be able to convert to Sangamon* CVEs?

It is the Neosho AO Class. That is what I get for my memory being used!

The Agano's are used as a surface asset. The increased production of the Moon-Class AA DDs are meant to supplement the CV Screen.

Cavalry: What do you have in mind--specifically--with the CAs? I think they all get their upgrade the 3.9" in late-42/early-43. Do you have a different idea?

John,

All I meant was there is only one upgrade for Maya class I think to 300 AA and no radar - would have expected to see a furrther progression through the war of these very valuable ships. Not sure about the others I need to take a look
Did you check the torp a R facing on the Agano class???
