I'm currently playing #16, and so far the AI has been sending multiple bombardment TFs down to PM. They are averaging one every other night and are slowly destroying the base. I don't have any effective counter to it - LBA refuses to strike the TFs even though they are spotted rounding the corner at GG the evening before.
I'm thinking of trying out mines, and have deployed two mine warfare TFs composed to 2 DMs each at Townsville for this very purpose. My question is, what hex(es) would be the best location for the minefield? The corner at GG, or PM itself? If the latter, do I run the risk of having my own ships hitting the mines?
