Hi, have started a japanese campaign after a long time.

Wasn't there a dormant B5N Factory somewhere you can expand to get the production going again?

No, but there are plenty of other factories you can convert to start production.....Nate, Ida factories come to mind, you don't need to produce any of those planes

Some players will also produce the B5N1 in order to use-up an existing pool of older engines; the B5N2 uses the Ha-35 IIRC, which you also need for A6M2, Ki-43, and other models, so there is alot of demand for it. B5N1 has very little performance difference vs. N2, really only SR rating which won't matter much on carriers

I don't have game open, so going off memory on the engines, someone correct me if I'm wrong....

It is sound advice.

Production of B5N1 only makes sense with PDU On. With PDU Off you should produce B5N2 immediately.

Curious why this is? Would think it would be the opposite?

Only a few Air Groups use the B5N1, then switch to the B5N2. All others start with B5N2.

Yes which is why I keep producing the B5N1 whether PDU is on or off? At least until I have enough B5N2's for all group replacements...

Then you're producing B5N1 (which you cannot assign) instead of a B5N2 (which is in need)? Every Air Group which uses the B5N1 will upgrade to B5N2.

With the same logic you're producing Ki-43-Ia and Ib instead of Ki-43-Ic?

With PDU on you can downgrade Air Groups from B5N2 to B5N1. Then you can assign the B5N1 (expending PP and saving an important engine). But with PDU off you're just filling the pool with B5N1 which you will never use.

At least that is how I see it.

I'm producing both. I found that if I am only producing B5N2 I run out of them and have no replacements for the B5N1 groups. Especially if I need them quickly for action. Until I have the downtime and have enough to upgrade all squadrons anyway...
