Sooooo finally finished the last Project R mission I have - CV wins...

FYI to all haters, CVs don't need nerfing, the tier-matching and number matching of CVs did that.

So got a Hosho, did my thing... Don't get me wrong I'm not fail (I did fail for first 2 or so matches, but got the hang of it pretty quick)
1v1 Langley... What's the counter?
4/5 times 1v1 my fighters would lose... And yes, I have all the modules and upgrades...
Any pointers peeps?

solution: do not engage US fighters using Japanese fighters.

you won't win against a langley's fighters so don't try unless you have the superior number (aka two Hoshos against 1 langley fighter group or whatever)

Solution: Torpedo Haifisch

Solution: Torpedo yourself

Solution: Play Langley

Solution: Division with a Yuubari

Solution:

Either draw the enemy fighters above one of the few tier IV ships with decent AA (Myogi, Yuubari, etc),

or use your fighters as a decoy while your torpedo bombers go around the map.

 

Fun fact: A single strike is not enough to take out a halfway decent Langley player, but it'll damage the CV and turn more of the player's

attention towards self protection.

Yeah that's been my current solution - thanks guys, it's been a matter of engage the Langley fighter around decent allied AA only... OR it's a sacrificial fighter for the 2x torp drop...

Anything else I should think of?
