Terminus, if I understand you, one squadron could have several detachments and therefore more than one type of aircraft. Is that correct?
Secondly, why is Munda a problem? If you get supplies there, shouldn't it be ok?

1. B25's are coming from Cairns there at max range to do it (11 hexes)
2. No all the same
3. Wasp is an older ship and 2 Torps is often enough in order to get as many turns done as possible I am not watching the replays so not sure
4. Human error - I dont have the carriers to fight that far forward and the Japanese keep the AF shut

Yes, but it's a predefined squadron. I.e. if we have squadron X defined in the editor as flying Hurricane IIc's, squadron X/det A could be defined as flying Hurricane IVs at the same time. You still can't fold the detachment into the parent squadron if they're flying different aircraft.

Depends how big it is, how much AV support you have, and the maintenance ratings of the planes based there. However, like Andy says below, apparently Munda is being visited heavily by the Jap AI.

Yeah, the original (WWII) Wasp was sunk by 3 Japanese torps, so the game is not that far off! If I remember correctly, the spread of six torpedoes also hit a destroyer and the USS North Carolina....one hell of a great shot by that Japanese sub!

OK my armoured spearhead has arrived at the base 90 miles from Perth - 3 enemy units await | will try a bombardment attack 1st until the Infantry catch up

The amphibs are back at perth but re arming and refuelling a 70 ship TF takes a few days

Essex has arrived as well so the Tarawa invasion will have a reasonable amount of aircover

In a real game or PBEM I would probably waiut for more carrier support before going for Tarawa but what the hell may as well go for it !!!

OK at the town of Cunderin I am facing one of the enhaced Japan Scenario Divisions dug in and fresh with air support depending on the fort levels its probably a 50:50 proposition I think I will wait for the follow on forces to arrive and try to use my Armoured Cars to flank the base and the heavy Armoured Bde to exploit towards Perth

I suspect the fort levels are better at Perth so I would like to bounce em out of this base if I can

I will be ready to attack Cunderin next turn

After that the battle of Perth begins until I get there I won't know what kind of support the AI has

I will start loading up the Baker and Tarawa forces next turn as well.

You said "enhanced scenario Japan division" being faced at Culverin - does that mean that the Japanese have additional divisions or have some of the historical divisions been upgraded in some way?

Yes in Scenario 2 Japan gets a few more LCU's , a few more Sqns and a few more ships and a little more supply and resource

Its not decisive but it makes things a little easier for Japan and gives them a few more options

I am testing that scenario now because I wanted to test the allied AI reaction to certain moves and its easier in this scenario because I can use those units more easily for speculative scripts without upsetting the core AI

OK II Corps despite its air support not flying <mutters about airdales not flying> managed to break through in a two day battle and get 3rd Motor and 2/11th Armoured Car out in pursuit.

The pursuit has enabled a follow on attack tomorrow which may shred the retreating japanese Division

OK Tarawa and Baker Island Invasion forces have commenced loading

Baker Island is an atoll so a single Div is about all you can take so 25th Infantry Div is getting the Duty

Tarawa is a series of atolls so two marine Regts of the 3rd Marine Div and the full 43rd Inf Div will assault that target.

I am weak in carrier air as most of the CVE's are in fact CVR's - only two operational fleet carriers make this a risky proposition but I am going for it !!!

Just to explain one of the niggles you will face with AE and pursuit attacks

When a unit successfully pursues a retreating unit NEITHER side gains control of all the hexsides unless one side or other had a unit in the hex before the combat - That means the pursuing units can keep on moving and exit any of the hex sides - de facto moving through the enemy stack thats been retreated.

Negating it is easy just have a unit in the hex protecting your line of retreat or hope to god you can get out of the way or knock the pursuing units out befor eth emain force arrives

(Units cannot attack and pursue in same turn now)

So Pursuit is less powerfull but when it works is still devastating
