    @firehawk12: Yeah, that should work. Read something about not using Nisshin & maybe 1-2 others, but can't find it in the thread. All has to do with manipulating friend fleet. For example, not worth using Akagi for E-5 thanks to Akagi Friend Fleet. Note I probably should have gone with another offensive DD and dropped Teruzuki for final kill. Can use Ooshio K2 here I think. Kind of tired due to E-5 Part 2 LD beat down. It's cancer, just cancer WITH Friend Fleet. Still need stars to align. Patience is running thin...

    Anyway, again, key is just to get to Start 3 & STF. If you can get lucky and quickly get through CTF chipping phase, you're in good shape.

    just a stupid question: I am on CTF chipping duties and in every run of the fist 4 sorties two of my escorts get chuha/taiha @ sub node C. The subs are only echelon or abrast so how are they able to do such a snipe??
    I know node D is affecting my planes but wouldn't it be a smart choice to avoid the subs? Or is it just bad luck with the subs ... i mean 1-2 runs 1 red/orange is ok but 8 ships in 4 runs straight is a bit to heavy:/

    @Tygonius echelon subs basically means hell, so be expected to receive dmg from them. You can use 1 OASW ship equipped with a sonar and dc (last slot radar for the boss routing requirements) to deal with the subs and hopefully reduce the pain. I've tried going through node D and decided the loss of planes was not worth it as J will wreak more havoc. Another consideration is that the sub node C will not consume any ammo while the air raid node D will consume ammo, thus reducing your dmg at the boss node further.

    yeah thx @Ken G i'll deal with the subs somehow. Finaly the 7th sortie (over R^^) chipped 495dam. Nice D-Dank with 10x red. I ve got lucky the Escort Flagship (only ship not red in yasen) sniped 380dam. This will be a fun little game 2morrow^^. I fear I will run out of iron eventually.

    @goesto11 random question - do you have a fleet setup for the slow CV fleet part for unlocking? Just don't want to mess up by using the wrong ships...

    You mean S rank Node T and get AS for node L part of unlocking? Use your CTF (one you plan to chip boss/part 1/etc. I used Main - Hiryuu, Souryuu, Shoukaku, Michishio, Furutaka, Mogami. Escort - Kako, Yuubari, Akizuki, Murasame, Haguro, Italia. Not sure if there's a better/new comp with the updates in Friend Fleet or not), but throw in a slow AV for one of the ships. I used Mizuho (used Comm Teste earlier). Can't remember (didn't keep notes) whether in CTF main or escort fleet, but pretty sure I put Mizuho in for Michishio given KC Wikia comp for that part has no DD in CTF main required.

    If you don't have a slow AV available... not sure what to say. Need a slow fleet and need an AV for branching on this. Not sure if mandatory, but IMO better to use an AV for E-5 stuff, but can use a fast AV for that.

    Oh god I just tried sortieing a CTF to reach node T and it's terrible... I can see why this map is terrible...

    I hope it's easier on Med or Easy if I need to jump down?

    @firehawk12: Now you know why people like myself hate the CTF portion of this map. Supposedly E-5 Part 2 is "better" than this after friend fleet, but at least with E-4H once you get Start 3 unlocked and go STF, it gets a lot better. Maybe I'm just very unlucky (running almost identical to what others are except most probably have luck modded ABKM, but give me a break if that's the only difference). Regardless, to me, E-5H Part 2 is the worst part of this entire event. YMMV.

    As for Medium here?... IDK. Just looking at comps, it's should be at least noticeably easier in that air power requirements are not as high, enemies down graded a bit and so forth. Easy probably isn't too bad. Again, while final kill isn't automatic, it definitely gets a lot better with Start 3 unlocked and STF.

    @goesto11 I think E5 will be Easy for me unless something happens haha.

    Did you bother using node support for CTF chipping, or is it practically useless?
