    Operation Trikora

    When the Indonesians invaded western New Guinea in the early '60s, the Dutch sent the carrier Karel Doorman to respond, before the Indonesians decided to use Tupolev Tu-16 'Badger' bombers with AS-1 'Kennel' anti-ship missiles to sink her; this prompted the Dutch to back off, and western New Guinea went to Indonesia. Now, had the KD gone to the Far East, forcing Indonesia's hand, how would have that played out, and what would the ramifications have been for fleet air defenses?

    MN Joffre French Aircraft Carrier

    Arromanches and Clemenceau would make good higher-tier vessels.

    Just Got the Lexington. Now What?

    My game plan is as follows: Get the upgraded torpedo bombers, then get my captain up to snuff. Once I do that, it's on to random battles. While I'm at it, which battleships are most vulnerable to taking AP damage? Germans, I guess.

    Ideal loadout on Taiho

    Isn't the strike loadout the main go-to for all IJN CVs, or are more of them running AS because their American counterparts only get one option?

    Just Got the Lexington. Now What?

    I played a game with AP bombs and liked them. I'm thinking of equipping HE bombs, just to make getting the Halsey mission for "set on fire" ribbons easier.
  6. I've already purchased the ship, with the B hull purchased, fighters unlocked, and still need free XP to unlock the torpedo and dive bombers. I decided to put a green commander at her helm. I guess the best way to go is play co-op to get the hang of things, then jump into random, as I've done with pretty much every CV I've played thus far. Thoughts?

    AP vs. HE Bombs

    I'm about 45k XP away from the Lexington, no small thanks to 14 days premium from a resource container, but enough. The higher tiers are getting closer with each game, and I did some calculations, and found that were I to research all upgrades for all the carriers, before free XP came in, I have a combined 655, 000 experience to go before I unlock everything. This includes unlocking both HE and AP dive bombers. For the sake of time, is it worth researching both AP and HE dive bombers, or just one? For the record, I have over 100k XP on the Missouri, and I'm trying to pull together the money to get the gold to convert it.

    Grinding Through Ranger

    Right, now because the game disconnected, I don't have the screenshots to prove it, but I just got out of a game where I broke my damage records in both the Ranger and carriers, with 107k. Sadly, I got killed trying to take out an enemy Fuso and Richilieu, who I took to almost no health early on in the game; but my team still won, after our Clevelands finished off the Fuso. I also have 45k XP to go. It seems that each time you go through each 10k XP interval, the next ship in the branch seems that much closer. I think it only works at the higher tiers.

    Grinding Through Ranger

    Now, time for the next bit of big news: My first 10-point CV captain. He has ASX, Torp accel, TAE, and Air Supremacy. What would be good skills for the remaining nine points?

    Playing Carriers at Present

    I got to 40k XP on my Ranger last night. I was just wondering, is it worth attempting any further progress on carriers now, given the impending rework? Please leave your input below. Thanks! P.S. I also have 10k or something XP on my Hosho, and wanted to get that to T5 as well, if not to T6.

    Grinding Through Ranger

    Given the impending CV rework, should I attempt any further progress on grinding any CVs at this time? I signed up to be a beta tester for the rework.

    Grinding Through Ranger

    I don't have screenshots, but I can tell you I try to stay with my team, and adjust my position to stay with them as needed.

    Grinding Through Ranger

    How do I end up with an 18% survival rate? Merely the fact that I haven't been playing them very often is why. And I often get stuck in impossible situations (blame can go either way) when I do; including Saipans, T9 ships, or both. I'm still at T4 in the Hosho. It's taking a while to grind up her, in no small part because I've been doing missions that require T5 or higher, and it isn't high priority right now. I've also decided to keep grinding the IJN cruiser branch to T10, and to get the British and French branches there (as well as German battleships) before attempting any further progress on any other branches for now. There. Does that answer your question?

    Grinding Through Ranger

    I don't know, man. Either you and your fellow Ranger were really good, or the enemy CVs were impotent (though not impotent enough to barely survive the battle.)

    Looking Ahead to Mogami

    All right, so as I might have posted on this subsection of the forums, I got the Mogami, and mounted the 203s as soon as I could buy them. Admittedly, they're not that bad, and I've had a few good games with them. Using AP against cruisers at point-blank range, you get citadels like it's nobody's business. I got four when trying to flush out a hidden New Orleans once. All in all, they're good when they need to be. I'm guessing Ibuki is more of the same.
