Hello I have some questions, I dont know if it is better to open one topic per each and describe in the title the subjecto or just only one with all of them. I will write them here if it is better to change it I will do
-Which is the best way to decrease the AA´s of a enemy base? I am bombarding Bataan and the AA´s are toasting my bombers, I am bombing between 12k-15k feets, if I bombard higher the results are nearly none.
-Which is the best range for a naval bombardment, I thought it was the closer to 0 but I have made some with a larger range and the results are better, is it just bad luck? Or the shells need more range?
-I have a huge shortage in engines production, I have to bases per HA-35, HA-32 and HA-33 but the aircraft production overpass the engine production heavily because the increase of engines production is just 2 per turn, I have tried to shut off some aircraft production but it is not enough, is there any way to create more engines factories in different bases?
-What means the number between parentesis in the elements of a LCU unit for example IJA infantry squads (80)143, is the number of damaged elements? I have tried to search in the manual but I cant find nothing related to this.
Thanks you very much
1. As stated, AA will fire as long as there is supply and AA LCU has working devices. You can work down supply by forcing AA fire, but it's slow. Attacking is the best way, but costs you.
2, Bombardment range is a series of trade offs. Closer is more accurate, but if you go inside the range of the AA guns they will fire too, and eat up your ammo you might need for AA on the withdrawal. Closer makes it easier for CD to hit you. Closer, I think, increases the randoms on mine field hits. In addition to range settings you need to decide and set the switch for "Escorts bombard Y/N" This again applies to using up AA ammo.
3. JFB question. But you cannot create new engine factories, no. They are set in the scenario. You can enlarge them and you can change which engine they make. Both of these at cost in supply and time. Tracker has tabs devoted to seeing your engines and aircraft in great detail. I imagine that's one of the hardest parts of managing the Japanese economy. Remember, some models are 2E and a few for you are 4E.
4. I think the number in parentheses is disabled devices, not disrupted. Disruption is short term. Disablement is long term. But the number outside the parentheses in your "good" device count.
