Ah only friendly hexes? Okay then. I now hold Lunga so that'd make sense. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't about to attack easy targets! :P Also good to know since that can give me better CAP coverage over hostile landings then.
Thanks again witpqs! :D
If I am wrong hopefully someone will jump in!
Carriers (CV, CVL, CVB) suffer 50% ops penalty when they are in base hex or dot hex.
Penalty is for both friendly and enemy bases and dots.
No penalty for CVE
18.104.22.168.2 AIRCRAFT CARRIERS IN BASE HEXES
Air operations by aircraft carriers are limited if the aircraft carrier is in a base hex. Aircraft launching search, CAP or strike Missions from a carrier in a base hex will only launch 50% of the normal amount they would have launched. If the CAP is reinforced by fighters on the ship due to the raid being spotted in time, only 50% of the fighters on the ship will reinforce the CAP.
Not to be " that guy", but the manual you quote there does not say CVEs are excluded from this penalty. I've heard this CVE thing stated many times, but is it true or false wisdom that keeps getting passed down?
There is no word about CVE in manual but I believe that it was confirmed by devs that CVE dont suffer ops penalty
