Well, the Japanese have limited choices, but for a short haul over the beach opposed landing, the LB is good (properly supported). They will completely unload in one phase
For over the beach landings, especially opposed landings, regular AP's and AK's are best. xAP's and xAK's unload slowly. Early in the war though, the Japanese xAP and xAK work as well as the regular AP and AK though.
The key is to get troops into troop space. When loading, ensure the TF you are loading into has more than adequate troop space.
I have been inputting my orders for the campaign game first turn since July 4, 2009. I'm getting close. In another month or two, I might be able to run the turn!
