WE will try this on this coming  FRIDAY and Sunday  on APRIL 20th and 22nd 4/20/18 and 4/20/18 8:30-11:30PM US Eastern standard time , 7:30-10:30 PM US CENTRAL TIME, 6:30-9:30 PM US MOUNTAIN TIME, 5:30-7:30 PM US PACIFIC TIME , 10:30AM -1:30 PM in Sydney Australia 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM in Perth Australia.   this will be in the training room labeled chapter 5 battle of Santa Cruz islands. search for training rooms by Outwardpanicjoe 

 

(CHAPTER 5) Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands,– The U.S. naval forces were deployed as two separate carrier groups, Task Force 16 under carrier Enterprise, and Task Force 17 under carrier Hornet and were separated from each other by about 17 km . The carriers were supported by one battleship (USS South Dakota), three heavy cruisers (Portland, Northampton, Pensacola), three light anti-aircraft cruisers (San Juan, San Diego, Juneau), and 14 destroyers. FOR THIS  SCENARIO  the USN will have the USS Smith (MAHAN CLASS) escorting the USS enterprise with defensive fire and another DD will escort Hornet closely. In Hornets group will have Northampton there and Juneau and 2 USN destroyers at tier 6 or 7. With enterprise, the BB SD (we will use the Alabama), Portland (Indianapolis), Pensacola, San Juan (Atlanta) and 2 DDs one mahan class and the other can be any tier 6-7 USN dd.

OBJECTIVE – main objective burn and take out carrier Zuiho and have enterprise survive Secondary save hornet.

The Japanese naval forces were divided into three groups: the "Main Body" consisted of Shōkaku, Zuikaku, and Zuihō plus one heavy cruiser and eight destroyers, and the "Vanguard" force contained a battleships, three heavy cruisers, one light cruiser, and seven destroyers, and battleship Hiei.. FOR THIS  SCENARIO and limitations of the training room. We will go mainly with the main body group we will have 2 shokakus and 1 zuiho , shokaku, Zuikaku, and Zuiho., battleship Hiei and kirishima (both kongo classes) Atago and another any Japanese light cruiser kuma and 4 tier 7 Japanese DDs some where known to be shiratsuyus guarding and escorting the cvs.

Objective: main destroy hornet and her flotilla (optional). Secondary damage or sink enterprise and damage Uss smith.

IJN Zuiho and USS HORNET CVS cannot put out single fires on the first attack but can put out anything more then that and Zuiho can only be taken out by dive bombers. ships of both fleets must stay in a defensive AA formation for CVs protection. once IJN spots USN planes they can launch planes. USN cvs can have there dive bombers scouting only till the Japanese feet is discovered.

I'd like to join. I don't have any of the required CVs tho. I can buy back my Zuiho and Kuma, and I have the Alabama, ARP Hiei and Kirishima. Does ARP Takao counts as an Atago? If so, I have that one too.

I've got 'Bama, Atago, and a bunch of others. No CVs past Independence, Saipan, and Zuiho. I think Alabama would be my choice.

"CV Event" ????

 

By a matter of principle, going to protest and not participate.

 

CV needs to be removed from the game till they are completely remade.

yeah this isn't going to be easy considering every US ship in here has DEF fire and there is 2 Atlanta's and its a cv event mostly because of the surface fleet really didn't see each other.
