The upgraded Narai still retains much of the fun of the old Narai. Everything happens much faster, however, and it is no longer a shooting gallery. Our Operations division did this the other day with a string of five stars. Here is one good basic way to do this. In this operation a CV is less productive than a BB, so we generally run 3 BBs, 3 high DPM cruisers, and 1 DD, all driven by people who know what they are doing. The DD is captained by our fearless leader, @Lightninger, who has numerous youtube videos of how to run a DD in operations. The best BBs, we have found are Hood (super tanky, the guns are murderous when they hit, and the secondaries are surprisingly productive), Scharnhorst (obvious), and KGV (good damage resistance, HE fire chance like a bot, and 25 second reload). Basic plan is like this: 1. two ships, cruisers, must go through the islands and kill the Lexington that comes up the 10 line to escape off the map (purple). Two ships are necessary, because the Lex is protected by a Phoenix or Omaha and a DD, which WILL torp you and then go kill transports if it is not killed (ditto for that cruiser). The CV and the escorts must be killed, all three ships. One cruiser can go IF the DD comes over to help. You can do this with cruiser/BB, or BB and the DD (see below). 2. The DD has one major assignment: torp the Missouri. After that it can break off to help kill the Lex -- becoming the second ship committed to the Lex -- or hit the harbor. 3. 1 BB (yellow line) roars right down the center as fast as possible. The best BB for this and probably for this Op is the KGV. You can also go through the islands. 4. 1 high DPM cruiser, Helena or Atlanta, runs to the side harbor and kills all the transports (gray line). If you kill them all on your own you collect an achievement, Shark among Shrimps. 5. The other ships stay with the transports. Re (3) above: you might wonder how on earth a battleship could glide unmolested up the middle/through the islands, but that's what happens. If you switch between AP and HE, you can kill everything along the way before it bothers you. The Missouri's target priorities are DDs followed by cruisers followed by BBs. As long as other food is present it will ignore battleships (as it is doing in the image above, ignoring me), which means that you can put some damage on it as you pass by at point-blank range OR... ...as soon as you reach the Missouri the Lex in the harbor becomes visible. You can usually put 3 or 4 salvos into it from your front guns before it disappears into the wall of smoke the DD makes for it. If not for the smoke it would be killable by this BB. I have yet to cit it with KGV guns, though I have put 2-3 cits on the Ranger with KGV when it appears. The trick to getting safely in the harbor is to load HE when the CV disappears, as it is doing in the image above. There's a Dallas waiting by the entrance, but there is also a Campbelltown that will torp you as you enter the harbor (not visible in this image). So when you reach this point, slow to a stop (I am eating CV torps in that image because I slowed to avoid Campbelltown torps) so you can avoid torps from the DD, then enter the harbor and blap the DD with HE. If things go well someone on the other side will finish it. Good luck!
