I should not speak for Robert. He can speak for himself, but the Falcons were flying close air support over his ground unit at Madioen. Madioen is an important base at this point, because it is a large airfield near Soerabaja, which has been a point of contention for the Japanese. He had a good (well... good for the Dutch) land unit protecting the hex: stronger than I anticipated actually. I expected only to find a base force there. Fortunately, I moved a division into the hex to attack. He was probably expecting an attack from a regiment or at most the 65th brigade. If only a regiment had been present, the Dutch unit at Madioen, with air support in good defensive terrain, probably would have held off the attack and inflicted significant casualties on my unit. As it happens, however, my unit was a division, which Robert had no way of knowing, because the unit moved in an attacked the next day.

This result is so surprising...would be interesting to see the replay...to see why this, why it happened...unbelievable.
Probably because of heavy rain? and dispersed escorting formations? But shouldn't it have affected the defenders alike - in RL at least?



This happened to me recently in my other game as well. 18 Zeros failed to protect 27 Vals from 8 Cap fighters, and 4 Vals were lost. I checked the leaders of all of the units engaged, and they were fine. The Zero Squadron leader and the Nell leader are exceptional actually. Just bad luck. On the other hand, my escort fighters did a pretty good job the other day, limiting bomber losses when flying into 50 fighters unexpectedly. So, sometimes it goes your way; sometimes it does not.
