I have two concerns with this design.

1.
Quote
The Allied fleet will have 20mm guns available for defense.


Why do the Allies only have the ability to use manned guns? What makes this worse are the facts that bombing ships is a more difficult task and the Ju 88 is a lesser bomber than a Boston.

Also, can we all just agree that manned guns are lame and should not be allowed in FSO in general?

2.

An example of the target objectives for the event are listed below;

Frame 1

Axis Targets (Shipping 11,9)

Allied Targets (P195, A116, City 12,8)

(2) Cruisers

50 City objects 12,8

(6) Destroyers

VH, FH and Radar @ P195

    
White Flag town at A116

P195/A116/City 12,8 cluster is so far from the Axis take-off bases that the Allies can realistically attack it before the defenders arrive.

I know this is an example, but based on your poor target selection the last time you designed an FSO, I can't risk letting you potentially make the same error again. But, if you were not planning on ever using the P195/A116/City 12,8 cluster as an allied target, please forgive me.

Just make sure that the targets are placed so that defenders can arrive with reasonable time before any possible attack.

Just make sure that the targets are placed so that defenders can arrive with reasonable time before any possible attack. The bases are equal distant, bases to base. If one side can rush to attack the other side can rush to defend and arrive approximately the same time.

These concerns are already dealt with and mitigated.

Good luck out there all!  :aok

How exactly?

Your FSO from December proved differently.

Then, The Allies are 4 miles closer. This month the Allies are much closer.

May have Betty showing up if were in the typhoons. DLO is very good in the Typhoon. I have been in the 190 vs the Typhoon and one typhie is enough to deal with let alone 12 of them.

Agree to disagree, I guess. FW 190 > RAF. Should be fun!

I know the effectiveness of the 190-A-5. With fuel management and trim that aircraft is one of the best and my go to choice of 190.

Sir, could you list those 190 reasons? 

I can spit out 5 reasons against.  :devil
