• Yusen S Cargo. 10 in class. All remain AK in SNLF, modified all to AK-t in Jun/Jul 42
• Yusen A Cargo. 7 in class, all to AK-t in SNLF after amphibious bonus expires
• Yusen N Cargo. 57 in class, all to AK-t in SNLF after amphibious bonus expires
I'm not convinced that converting anything to -t after the Japanese unload bonus expires is a good idea. But, everything that can be converted from xAK to AK should be.
After April 42, AK unload at 600 per ship per turn (up from 250 for xAK). All of the Yusen class in AK configuration have less than 600 troop capacity, meaning they will unload in one day (one turn). Move in, unload, get out. In AK-t configuration, the troop capacity is much higher (2105 for Yusen-S), so it could take 3+ days to unload. Do you want transports sitting in one location that long? Granted, for runs from, say, Shanghai to Truk you want the highest load capacity possible, and unload time at a port not under threat is irrelevant, but couldn't the xAP fill that roll?
Just thinking out loud - I'd like to hear others' opinions on -t.
