Hi CB


I often wonder about the effectiveness of my Fighter CAP. With a two carrier task force. Often I will throw all my fighters in CAP (12 fighters). But when a large scale attack of 10~15 airplanes (first wave). My cap only seems to take out only 2 or 3 planes. I would expect it to be higher even when taking escorting fighters into consideration.

I think someone has raised this before.  According the mechanism, the shifting in air to air combat resolution table column capped at a certain number of planes, so adding more planes may not help.

Correct me if I am wrong.

Also, historically, since radar was still primitive and without AWACS, redirecting CAP to counter threat was not very effective. It got worse when the attacker had escorts, they tended to tangle up the CAP allowing the bombers to do their job without being disturbed.

In this sense, you need to figure out other ways to save your CVBG against air strike, which is pretty much another topic of its own.

There is a lot of random in airstrikes
I may however have another look to see if it works properly
