    New 2018 Christmas quests

    So I'm a bit torn about the new quest rewards.

    I know that I'll pick the Toukai over the Raiden because I only have 1 Toukai. But as for the other quest, I don't know if I should pick the Reppuu Kai or the two Spitfires.

    Here are my notable carrier-based fighters:
    • Iwamoto +10
    • Iwai +10
    • Reppuu 601 +10
    • F6F-5 +10 (to be converted into night fighter)
    • 2x T0M21S +10


    Here are all of my interceptors / LBAS fighters:
    • Raiden
    • 3x Shiden 11
    • T4 Hayate


    With my resources and buckets nearly at hardcap, I'm planning on attempting my first full-hard clear in the coming event. Should I go for Reppuu Kai or pick the two Spitfires and upgrade them to mk.V?

    As 211303 said, air defense never was really important and so are interceptors with shorter range since they will be used only for that.
    Also, you can get interceptors from quarterly quests and probably from future events ( US interceptors when?), so I'd go with the reppu kai (you can also wait and see if the event will give interceptors as reward or if it strangely needs an air defense that it's hard to get with what you have).

    @friggo The only time when interceptor is important is when you need perfect defense, which haven't happened since Fall 2017.

    Even then, your interceptor with +1 AB can do the job just fine. They might need more tries comparing to spitfire, but it wouldn't be a huge difference. The shotdown rate difference is only like 80-115 vs 90-129 after all. I assume you also have some Hayabusa IIIa. Those would help with their 1 AB as well.

    The other advantage of these interceptor is the high fighter power they provide, but it doesn't matter if the total fighter power cannot get you AS+. And, in worst case scenario, there is no way you can't get at least AS with all 3 bases for defense, with or without these interceptor.

    On the other hand, reppu kai is a +12 AA fighter that is either rare or expensive to make. Its benefit is also situational, but at least it is something you will be using for sure.

    Of cos, the smart thing is to ignore the quest till event. They aren't time limited anyway.

    Thanks for the replies.

    @211303
    I actually haven't made any Hayabusa IIIA yet because other upgrades have taken higher priority. I only have a single unupgraded Hayabusa II at the moment. Guess I'll move it up the priority list.

    Follow-up: Should I upgrade the Hayabusa IIIA to max or just keep it as base?

    As for the quest, I'll just wait until the event. And unless they'll be handing out another Reppu Kai as a reward, I'll probably take the Reppuu Kai from the quest

    @friggo Hayabusa II>IIIa is a big improvement because of the range and the +1AB stat, while Hayabusa IIIa > max is only fighter power difference. Obviously, there are examples where your bomber squadron can get AD with a max one, but AI with a vanilla one, but given the cost it is not that high a priority. We might get better escort fighter in the future too that could potentially phase out the hayabusa.
