Garanteed win for US in Raid on Truk

Garanteed win for US in Raid on Truk

the reason why US has such disadvantage is because its forces are all split up, and then gets taken out one by one.
at the start of the game, the northern carrier turns immediately south, hugging the western edge of the map closely.  US BB also turns straight up north to meet up with the US CV.  Jap CA suzuya will chase the US CV, but when it does catch up with the US CV, US BB will be there and Jap CA either get sunk or retreats.   The southern US CV should also follow the US BB.  US should put up 8 squads of fighters in the beginning to protect the CVs, in case jap decide to go all out air raid on the CVs, which can sink it in no time.  the US CA up in the north should head straight west, towards the jap super fortresses.  those supper fortresses will take out one of the DDs b4 the CA knocks all of them out.  most of the time, the Jap will have all out air attack on the CA.  US will end up with a badly damaged CA.  once the CA clears the islands, it should head south to meet up with the rest of US ships. 

once the US CVs and BB are all together, they should head toward Jap facilities.   with 8 fighter squads, and numerous DDs and godly AA on the US CL, Jap planes will have very hard time torping the BB.  the US fleet will also be able to hold off any jap ships. 
at this stage, Jap will lose and US will win, unless u got someone who messes something up.

this strategy is 99% win for US, assuming that the US and Jap team both have capable players who knows wat they r doing

Re: Garanteed win for US in Raid on Truk

that is bc there must have been some little details that he didn't carry out well enough.
for me it worked 100% of the time, in 1v1s.  i remember twice the jap player rage quit cuz he could damage my BB one bit, LOL
if u would like to play me 1v1, we could do it some day and u will get ur ass whopped, haha

Re: Garanteed win for US in Raid on Truk

I really like that strategy. However, I just want to note that sometimes Enterprise gets ambushed by Suzuya before it gets under the safety of the West Virginia. But otherwise i think that it is a solid strategy. Thanks!

  • N_Trainz : it shouldn't crash any of the IJN missions, just one mission has the history of crashing in the Challenge missions 2, I don't know the name as its been a while I last loaded this mod
  • alantay11 : Gdrive mod crashes when i try to load a mission in ijn campaign?
  • N_Trainz : No it was created by multiple authors from around the world. I just made it so its actually a mod instead of a complete game that's about 7GB in size. The readme file that is displayed can give you more info about the mod
  • Runsva : hey ntrainz did u make this mod all by yourself?
  • N_Trainz : If you need any other help, just shout out and I'll try to get back as soon as possible
  • N_Trainz : Its not a problem :D I do thank you for waiting for a long time to get the mod. Again hope you enjoy the mod and the other fun features it comes with
  • Legendary Da : I don't know how many times I said that, but thank you so much for your work. Considering how much time making an installer, making it work and uploading it to different servers, I thank you again for the effort you put in this. :D
  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Here it is, installers works this time and Moddb won't accept it as they say its too large to upload, so its on my Google Drive and here is the link, hope you enjoy it «link»
  • Legendary Da : I had guessed it was about the wrong area, though I still wondered why it had been removed. Thanks for taking your time to make something better for the community. Take as much time as you require, though; life still comes first.
  • N_Trainz : Actually it was removed by me for 2 reasons; 1. was it was uploaded in the wrong area and 2. the installer didn't autp - detect the disk version, only the Steam version (since that is what I have). Going to remake it so if you won't mind a but longer wat that'll be appreciated
  • Legendary Da : Thanks soo much for the mod, I couldn't access to the Internet lately so I couldn't write a reply. Btw, the mod is removed from ModDB, is it taken down, or you removed it yourself? Either way, thanks for the awesome work (at least for providing it) :D
  • N_Trainz : What game and mod are you dealing with?
  • Runsva : Can someone PLEASE help me i can't install anything on my game it just keeps crashing!!
  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Its now live on Moddb and here is the link, requires a Batlestations Midway game to be installed to work «link» - midway - skinpack/addons/international - bsm - collection - light - version Enjoy
  • Runsva : are we still talikg about the zyy modding pack??
  • N_Trainz : Yeah I wanted to do this, but the installers were being a pain giving me errors about something. I finally got it working, and just figured out how to make the updater now since it'll be two parts with one containing the misc files and the other mostly the mpak files. It'll be a stand - alone DLC mod just like the Bismarck Mission Pack was. Like I said I plan to have it all completed and uploaded by this weekend
  • Legendary Da : No, no, not problem at all; I am already grateful that you were thinking about this subject, I can wait as long as you need to. Thanks for the help (again), and feel no need to rush this subject; we all know that the life comes first. :)
  • N_Trainz : Hope you won't mind the wait, it'll be worth it if you ask me, and yes I do understand that you can't download due to that cap Mege has. I heard the PM was down, but haven't tried it as I been busy helping the BSmodHQ team with things and then those that are life - in - general.
  • N_Trainz : To Legendary Da: I been trying to work on that actually, what I'm experiencing is the pack size> I already made it a light version of the mod, so hopefully this weekend maybe, might be sooner
  • Legendary Da : To N_Trainz: So, um... I can't exactly download from Mega for some reason; so could u upload that mod to Moddb? I am sorry for making extra work for you, and I TOTALLY understand if u can't upload it again; so, do as you want; I just wanted to say somehow I couldn't dl the mod (btw, why isn't the PM working?). U don't have to post the link either; I'll find it from the site if u upload it. Thanks whatever u do, and so sorry for the extra wish. :/
