In my war against OPilot, I dropped paras on Kota Bharu. The base was captured, and Tojos were destroyed. During the Air Transport phase, gunfire was heard, so there was some type of engagement. At the time, I suspected that I was losing C-47s, but there was no message at the time. Later, I saw that no C-47s were lost.
The intel screen said that 41 Tojos were destroyed in the turn: 8 in air-to-air, 2 on the ground, and 31 ops losses. The 31 ops losses were from the base capture. The 2 on the ground were from B-24s bombing and naval bombardment. But where did the 8 air-to-air come from? I had a fighter sweep that found no enemy planes. The B-24s encountered no Tojos. However, during the air transport phase, I did hear gunfire, and no C-47s were lost.
There was no mention of Tojos anywhere in the combat report.
Could it be that some fighter versus fighter air-to-air can occur during that phase, a phase that doesn't show up on the combat report? OPilot told me that his Tojos were resting, which makes it even stranger. Can't explain this one.
