So. This is not a defence of the attack on Pearl Harbour. This is just a suggestion. The idea is to have a carrier only operation that recreates the attack on Pearl Harbour by the IJN. (Though I suppose other nations 'carriers can be included if Wargaming chooses to do so) This new operation will address two things: The new CV rework The lack of any dedicated Axis Operations Firstly, The CV rework: When the CV changes hit, experienced and novice players alike will be thrown a brand new system which they will likely be unfamiliar with. A dedicated CV operation like this will be able to help players familiarise themselves with the new style of Carrier combat, as well as the updated anti-air capabilities of enemy ships. Secondly, The lack of any dedicated Axis powers operations: We get it. "THE ALLIES WON THE WAR!" I can already hear the armchair generals typing out their angry protests. But the Axis powers did still have a few naval victories. Among the most significant of these would be Pearl Harbour. The ultimate trigger that brought America into the Second World War on the side of the Allies. While the attack was tragic, it does make for an interesting operation to include into the game. It would also give us the only situation where multiple carriers can work together in a team (Unless WG removes the 1 CV per side game cap). Some Further details and spitballing ideas: The operation would be somewhat similar to Killer Whale or Narai, but with only Carriers. The enemy ships would likely be USN T6-7 battleships and cruisers (Maybe stick some other ships in there as well if you feel like it. But if Cherry Blossom is allowed to have only IJN ships on the enemy side, then it would make sense in the context of "Historical Accuracy" to have all the enemies at Pearl be USN) The primary objectives would be to "Destroy the main force" docked in port. This would probably be comprised mainly of Battleships (Maybe five. Perhaps have Arizona docked in there). After the attack, the carriers have to retreat to an extraction zone before the main enemy fleet of carriers returns. Additional side missions could include bombing airfields, shooting down enemy fighter craft, etc. TL:DR When the CV rework hits, people will need a place to both learn the ropes of the new CV mechanics and challenge themselves with said mechanics. We could do this with a fun, interesting and historically significant operation. Also, depicting the war from the Axis' side would be an interesting new take on a genre saturated with stories from the Allies. I am not discounting the Allies. I'm just saying that the Axis also has stories worth telling. Put down your torches and pitchforks. Being able to attack Pearl Harbour would certainly be cool. But this is just a suggestion. So take it however you wish (An idea, a necessity, an attack on your sensibilities and patriotism, a mushroom with a gender-switching crown, a hat, whatever). Until next time, Fair Winds.

DESCRIPTION ROUAN beached itself mid-game, therefore we were unable to complete the scenario. REPRODUCTION STEPS Enter battle and play the scenario as normal Storm started from northeast direction (not sure if storm path has any influence on Rouan's path, but i'll add this anyway) RESULT Rouan beached itself during the 3rd(?) wave; the one w several tier 7-8 battleships. EXPECTED RESULT Rouan DOES NOT beach itself in the entire duration of the scenario; or Rouan gains ability to self-right in the event of beaching. TECHNICAL DETAILS Time of occurrence: about 13:25, 5-10 minutes into the match Time match started: 13:20 Screenshots ^people tried pushing Rouan to nudge her off, but to no effect. i don't have the replay function on, and Dxdiag has been locked by the admin cause I'm actually playing in a net cafe. python.log
So after trying the scenarios, I noticed that all the enemies are either IJN or KM ships or both, while all friendly AI ships are USN with the sole exception of the Schors in that convoy rescue mission. The question is why though. Are USN ships not fun to fight against? What about the other VMF ships and the RN and MN? Is there some strange anti-Axis thing going on or is it some AI programming thing? Personally I would like to go up against a larger variety of ships. I am a bit tired of shooting Kumas and Furutakas in almost every scenario.
