BBfanboy -- thanks for the encouragement. I'll keep plugging away. At a distance of 18K my ships still got mauled, though not quite as badly. I'll try the next bombardment at 20K.

If you are playing the AI on HARD, Truk will never run out of supply - so it will be not a matter of "starve them out", but a long fight between your fire/bomb-power and AI replacement/disruption/morale.
You will actually have to destroy each device several times over and at faster rate then the AI would be able to replace them... I am not sure it is a best employment for your fuel-ammo hungry battleships incurring battle and fatigue damage requiring long repair periods...

I agree Barb. The daily automatic supply makes a huge difference in the timeline.
One other thing about Truk though -- if it has not been reinforced it may only have the naval fortress which has no AV in ground combat. Paratroops can take it easily.

Nuke it and move on.


Occasionally, and randomly, problems and solutions collide. The probability of these collisions is inversely related to the number of committees working on the solutions. -- Me.
