See the below combat report for 1 January 1942; I had a large cruiser and destroyer task force going after reported shipping near Koepang...but I had no idea they would engage this many ships!

Just have a look at how often TF 8 reacted to and engaged Allied task forces!

There were more than 500 shell hits and over 60 torpedo hits during the night phase - I did lose two destroyers through collision, though.

Nice one but your TF is to big for my taste. You could have the same results with spliting them in two TF without the collision likely.
Still a good baby seal clubbing

My game vs Quixote showed me that you do not need big taskforces to sink many ships. You would have gotten the same or beter results if you had had the TF split into 4 or 5 smaller sized ones.
