Got a Triumph with 23 hours left. Didn't even spend 12 hours with my ships in the zone!
Note, tweak the Victory Conditions. Maybe double what the Japanese/U.S. need now.
This scenario was a lot of fun,
Great! That makes me very happy!
really demonstrated the power of 5th gen aircraft. My stealth fighters did the bulk of the AAW work, while my F-15s and F-16s mopped up tankers, bombers, and missile salvoes. The missile attacks were tense, only 1 airbase was hit (with 2 warheads, basically no damage), but I lost the Blue Ridge to a DF-26. After that, I opened up with JASSM strikes, and that was the end of the Chinese air force. Every coastal SAM, missile site, and radar I could find got hit, as well as the runways and runway access points for every Chinese airbase. Later, all that was left was the 2 Chinese SAGs, which had been shrugging off near constant missile strikes by SLAMs from P-8s and F/A-18s. Eventually, the missile spam was too much. I actually sunk the Chinese carrier with cluster bombs from my A-10s, after it tanked literally everything else I threw at it. The second SAG was less interesting, falling victim to SLAM and HARM attacks. Some more points:
The Chinese seem to shoot their anti ship missiles at really uncertain targets, resulting in staggered and random missile attacks that came nowhere near my fleet. Not sure how to fix this.
The 2nd Chinese SAG also wasn't firing on my aircraft, even though they were quite clearly in range. I went into the editor and was able to fix this by unassigning them from their mission, and giving them an auto-attack order.
Hmmmm, have to look at that, come to think of it I think I've seen the same.
Even though I knew there were subs around, I never encountered one. Maybe they are too far away from my ships, or I just got a lucky teleport.
Yeah you got lucky! In one play test I sank 4 and one of them got the Kaga.
Again, thanks for the great scenario!
Thank you and with your suggestions It will be much better! Might be a week or so until I can get back into tweaking it.

I was Navy, but Assigned TAD to the 24th MAU Hq in Beirut. By far the finest period of my service!
