Could still be. Those A6M3s are not from a carrier. The A6M2s could be land-based on LRCAP. Chin up, old boy. It may not be naval aviation that is butchering your air forces. It may be land-based aviation that is butchering your forces.

It's both, there are 2 CV/CVL NE of Hollandia and the little burg SE of Hollandia is a Level 1 AF with fighters. I just sent recon over yesterday. Remnants of 2nd Br Para are dropping there today.
