It is swell to see that HPS is correcting Midway already. Thank you, folks.
I have two requests to be considered for the next Midway patch:
1.) I would like to see the Japanese Cruisers have usable recon aircraft
They had 'em and used 'em at Midway. I understand that you had considered this earlier and rejected the idea. How about making it an option (for the History fans in the audience) ?
2.) I'd like to see the Japanese be allowed to group strikes from different carriers.
They did historically. The U.S. Fleet did not.
Fighter direction control was still a dicey proposition through the Battle of the Eastern Solomons, and only in its infancy at Santa Cruz, but if it hadn't matured hugely by the Marianas, that battle would not have been called 'the Turkey Shoot'. I haven't looked beyond the Coral Sea and Midway scenarios yet, and so cannot offer any concrete suggestions currently, but did not see anything as I read the rules that indicated a maturing of FDC procedures.
Thank you for your efforts to date. Keep up the good work.
