Thanks for the welcome and comments gents.
PS- small note: the Lexington version used is the one still with the 8" twin turrets, is this intentional? It should be the all 1.1" version I guess
I just used the stock scenario #3 as a baseline, and did not double check any of the data for them. You are correct however, Lex lost her 8in/55s in April for 1.1ins and bunch of other AA. Ill make sure to fix that and double check the rest of her data.

What do the dashes and equal signs in the devices database mean?
Detailed explanation here (see Devices > Naval/DP Guns).
In brief, there are typically two symbols at the end;
The first is relative firecontrol quality compared to other mountings of the device (so for example between two different 8in guns).
The second is relative rate of fire compared to other mountings of the device (typically due to ammo handling arrangements, ammo hoists, lockers, etc.).
As not all weapons were installed in the same manner or with the same arrangements for FCS or ammo handling, these help you differentiate at a glance how that particular instance stands out. The Japanese CA's are a good example in this scenario, with each class having a different version of the 8in/50.
The symbols used are as follows;
^ is Excellent
+ is Good
= is Average
- is Poor
. is Terrible
In other news, I've decided to forgo Thousand Mile War for now and have started work on modifying Guadalcanal. So far its been 'pruned' down to only the needed aircraft, groups, ships and ship classes. Now the real work of updating the devices and then modelling and porting the aircraft and ships begins.
EDIT: And it seems Pax beat me to the punch. Thank you!
