From: Somewhere in the South Pacific.
No it's not that the game can't model the Battle of Midway, that is up to the players. What the game does is models the operational situation, not the tactical environment. So technically the game can't model any historical battles of the Japanese war, and it shouldn't, that is what the players are for.
But in the countless engagements one can read in the AAR section, there are similar situations and results to Midway. Just read Q-ball's Hairy Yankee Reports AAR, and some of rroberson carrier battles, to see some one sided affairs. Also a Japanese player in WitP-AE could put himself a similar situation, by moving a 4 carrier TF under Allied LBA with 3 Carriers on airfield attack, 1 carrier on naval strike, and 5% CAP!
