Ive played this scenario 4 times now (3 as IJN) and the IJN has lost every time.  Although the put come is historically accurate the current set up offer no chance or just a very slim one for the IJN player to win.  The primary reason is that once the US eliminates Lea, it can dedicate its entire bombing force to sinking the TF and the huge number of bomber the US has pretty much guarantees this.  The Japanese need to distract enough bombers and the ability to destroy them in order to achieve this.  

I suggest the following modification create a more balance 2P game.

- Increase Lea airfield strength from 5 to 15. As it is in the current game, the US can obliterate Lea in 1 to 2 air strikes.  By increasing it to 15 it will allow it to survive longer and give the Japanese some time to reinforce it. As it stands right now, the US destroys it before reinforcement can arrive.

- Add the Gasmata/Tsurumi airfield to the game.  Historically the airfield was still in use at this time. I would give it a minimum of 10 strength but I think 15 would be ideal. By adding Gamata it presents another threat to the US player. The US must now split up it bombers to deal with the threats.  It also benefits the Japanese to provide longer CAPs for the TF as it gets closer to Lea.  It also brings Japanese medium and dive bombers into play. As it is now, nearly half the Japanese bomber force in the game are completely useless because medium and dive bombers like the Val, Ki-12, Ki-48 and Ki-49 simply do not have the rage to bomb any US air field once Lea is gone.  Opening Gasmata bring these planes back into play and allowing the Japanese to put more pressure on the US.

- Make all airfields have unlimited fuel.  As it is now.  Both the US and IJN consolidated almost all their aircraft at Port Morsby or Rubal. The other airfields simply do not supply enough fuel for 3 day.  All of the airbases are pretty much equal distance from each other that it doesn’t matter.  Hopefully it will encourage player to use other airfields.
