    @western_gunner Don't think any Akizuki class are historical.

    Part 2 - Route 2DFEKMO: 10 runs, of which 4 S ranks, 3 A ranks (including final and 1 failed LD kill), 2 retreats at pre-boss Node M, 1 retreat at airstrike Node E


    Part 1 Composition

    Lv 99 Yura Kai Ni - 20.3cm(3) +9, Type 3 Sonar MAX, ASW Rocket + [8cm+MG MAX] (OASW capable)
    Lv 99 Fumizuki Kai Ni - 3x Daihatsu

    Lv 99 Mikuma Kai - 20.3cm(2) +9, 20.3cm(3), Drum, Seiran 631sqn

    Line Ahead at Node C and boss Node I, Vanguard at Node D

    AS+ at all nodes. 69 TP per S rank.


    LBAS
    4 bombers to boss Node I

    2 buckets to rush the map (bucket chuuha or worse only). Support is not necessary at all.

    Notable drops: Nothing!


    Part 1 Comments
    I copied the 'pseudo-heavy' comp (FBB+CVL) exactly so I have nothing special to report except that it's incredibly easy. Compared to 211's report, I used my CVL with NBCVCI setup since I got a little annoyed at the one time I had a A rank :/ I also tried to be smart here by using Yura since she can do DA as well as OASW with 2 equips, with the gun in the expansion, but this really isn't necessary as it is really really easy. It's also better to save Yura's utility for EOs for now (until we find out what exactly is needed) - as such, I would actually recommend Tatsuta K2 as the CL for E2 since, of the daihatsu-carrying CLs, I feel she is the most expendable of them. (There is also Kinu K2... but really, 300 TP will not take you very long at all.so her transport bonus has little meaning)


    Part 2 Composition
    [+] Spoiler

    Pre-final
    Lv 98 Arashio Kai Ni - WG42, Ka-Mi MAX, Daihatsu+Marines MAX
    Lv 95 Teruzuki Kai - 10cm HA+FD MAX, 10cm HA+FD, Type 13 Air Radar Kai
    Lv 99 Yura Kai Ni - 11th Tank Regiment, Type 3 Sonar MAX, ASW Rocket + [8cm+MG MAX]

    Lv 99 Kaga Kai - F6F-5N, F6F-3N, TBM, NOAP (Skilled)
    Lv 99 Mikuma Kai - 20.3cm(3) MAX, 20.3cm(2) MAX, WG42, Night Scout MAX

    Final

    Lv 99 Fumizuki Kai Ni - WG42, Ka-Mi MAX, Daihatsu+Marines
    Lv 99 Yura Kai Ni - Type 21 Air Radar Kai MAX, Type 3 Sonar MAX, ASW Rocket + [8cm+MG MAX]
    Lv 99 Ryuujou Kai Ni - Type 53 Iwamoto MAX, Tenzan Murata, F6F-5 MAX, Type 52 Iwai MAX
    Lv 99 Kaga Kai - F6F-5N, F6F-3N, TBM, NOAP (Skilled)
    Lv 99 Mikuma Kai - 20.3cm(3) MAX, 20.3cm(2) MAX, WG42, Night Scout MAX
    Lv 98 Arashio Kai Ni - WG42, Ka-Mi, Daihatsu+Marines MAX

    320 Fighter power gives AS at airstrike Node E and preboss node M, AS+ at Node D, and either AS+ (Supply hime only, and Final) or AS at boss Node O (depending if Airfield shows up pre-final).

    Vanguard at Node D and preboss Node M, Diamond at airstrike Node E, Line Ahead at boss Node O

    You need approx 80 LoS (Cn=4) to route to boss. Bring a Saiun in place of your smallest fighter slot if you run short (may get AP at airstrike Node E and preboss Node M occasionally).


    LBAS
    4 bombers to boss Node O

    Used Node Shelling Support (CVL 2BB CA 2DD) for all runs, and Boss Shelling Support (CVL 2BB CA 2DD) for final.

    22 buckets to rush the map (bucketed all damage).

    Notable Drops:
    Li'l baby girl Zara~, Daitou, Ooyodo



    Part 2 Comments
    I again copied 211's report exactly for chipping and it works like a charm, along with Node Support - even though I face the nodes with Vanguard (causing the damage to be reduced), the point is that it kills off trash at the preboss node so your CV/CA who do not have nerfed firepower can focus on the Nu-class.

    However, for LD, I was dissatisfied with the solo CV comp as not only did it only secure AP at the airstrike Node E and preboss Node M, leading to an increased chance of taiha, it also removed one of my strong hitters, Kaga, who I was relying on to get rid of the Nu-class. Therefore, since I brought a holepunched Yura, I decided to keep both CV and CVL, and use her AACI and instead ditch the ducky for the second daihatsu combo DD to attack the boss. Also, do note that Supply Hime does not use planes at all in her final form, so she cannot lose her turn as a result of getting chuuha or having her planes emptied (since she doesn't start with any).

    Obviously this will only work if you also use Yura (which, until we know the EOs, I don't recommend locking her here), the alternative being a holepunched Satsuki/Fumizuki K2 with a 25mm Conc. for a weak AACI, but it's better than none at all. The solo CV strat can definitely still work, but it may require more attempts or possibly sparkling your characters to improve evasion so you can actually reach the boss at all to nuke her. But she explodes juicily if you do manage to pull it off! Good luck and happy hunting!




    Fumizuki's kill. She has a use once in a while~

    If I only have one night fighter, is there much chance of being able to clear P2 on hard, or will it not make too major a difference? I have the TBM-3D, I'm just missing the F6F-5N.

    E2 Hard cleared!

    Notable drops: none

    Same fleet used for both phases, only swapping the equipment. Phase 1 equipment was for a balance between TP and farming for drops, but S rank success rate is low, so it is better to unlock the second phase or clear the map, then use better ships for post-clear farming.

    Node support used for HP phase to increase chances of reaching boss, using vanguard formation for D and M, and diamond for E. LBAS to boss node for both phases.

    TP phase






    HP phase





    LBAS for both phases

    Done with E2H, followed 211's compo, LD had me trouble due to random taiha and failed LoS (needed 20+ to go from M to O).

    I've never seen crazy number like this btw:

    So trying to make my own fleet comp for this map which I'll be using for both phases. So far, here's my plan:

    *CL*:
    Ooshio: Daihatsu mule
    Kawakaze: Daihatsu mule
    Furutaka: Main Gun, Main Gun, Radar, Scout Plane
    Takao: Main Gun, Main Gun, Radar, Scout Plane
    CVL: 2xTorpedo Bomber, 2xFighter

    It's not yet finalized as I look through everybody's posts here so any tips on how to improve this fleet comp? I'm not sure exactly which CL to use (don't have Tatsuta, Tenryuu, Tama, and any of the Agano sisters) which kinda makes this part hard for me as I don't want to lock any shipgirl unless I have to.

    By the way, for both Ooshio and Kawakaze, what should be their loadout be in the HP phase?

    @silentcap

    For now I'd recommend any CL with no unique abilities and enough ASW to reach 100 with equipment. This CL's only use is to kill the sub at the line ahead node.

    Your daihatsu DDs should have Ka-Mi Tank + Daihatsu+Marines (or 11th Tank Regiment) + WG42 for the HP phase. Assuming you have 2 Ka-Mi Tank, you should avoid using Kawakaze here since she can't equip it for the maximum damage combo vs supply hime. Use a weak DD that has tank equipping ability e.g. Satsuki or Fumizuki.


    Especially for those who want to do E5 on Hard and don't have every single daihatsu-carrying CL and DD, I'd strongly advise being as stingy as possible with daihatsu-capable CLs and DDs and only use the weaker ones for earlier maps, as E5 Part 2 looks like a pain with multiple installations needing to be fought alongside the (non-installation) boss.
