This is against Pearl and I am going in every 2 days, one visit i will be casualty free, next visit not so lucky!
Im routinely losing 2 to 3 DDs every 4 days, outright sunk, and taking about 10 - 15 hits on the CA/CLs and BBs which they can cope with - is there anyway of avoiding this?
Do i need to load up the TF with PC/PGs to act as cannon fodder
Not on escort bombard so im not sure im doing it right.
In reality, Oahu was a fortress. To even bombard it with a reasonable chance of avoiding mines and the zeroed-in coast-defence rifles, you had to have air superiority. Although the theoretical maximum range of those battleship guns was 40 kyd or so, the maximum range at which they could hit anything on land was less than 12 kyd, and most of the coast artillery on Oahu could hit a ship reliably at that range. Considering that some of that coast artillery was battleship-calibre, be glad you're getting off so lightly!
