    Do not get me wrong though, I will definitely be using this plane as a regular fighter and during my monthly 4-5 clears on Saratoga. I just think this plane is not a big loss for those considering tackling E-5 on Medium difficulty.


    PS. I do feel kinda sad to retire some of my former Reppuu Kais (now Reppuu Model 11). :/

    Got all the way to to P2 LD and getting ready for it.

    As many others had said, up to now, the most difficult part was B+ ranking node V with A TCF.
    Getting pass all those nodes feels like doing last dances with difficult preboss fights in earlier maps...
    Took me 9 runs with fully sparkled node support (did not sparkle the main/escort fleets).

    I started P2 chipping at around friendly fleets got implemented. It was a bit harder than I thought (did not equip damecons/damegamis).
    Took another 10 runs.

    All except the last run successful run the friend fleet was the weakest one with Urakaze, Hamakaze, Tanikaze and Isokaze, despite spending flamethrowers...
    The last run I switched Akagi for Sara and Kongou for Myoukou, and the much more powerful Akagi fleet appear (though it was unnecessary because I already got past the threshold by daytime)

    Now I'm waiting for expeditions to return and try last dance with @211303 's revised comp for friendly fleets.
    Though I'm out of holepunches can probably can't goddess everybody in the escort... (SBR, Bismarck and Johnston not holepunched)

    That's true, the best range 6 fighter is Hayabusa 3A at max improvement, which is kind of mass-producible.
    If it had 7, it would be a good replacement for T0M21 Skilled for some maps.

    Apart from that though... As a relatively new TTK who joined in late 2015, there was only a few 12+ AA fighters before this event:

    - 14AA Iwamoto maxed
    - 13AA Reppu 601 maxed, but only if you get the chance to improve it
    - 12AA Iwai, only if you did not convert it to a fighter-bomber
    - 12AA Reppu M11, as a mostly non-ranker, I only have one of these
    - 12AA F6F-5 maxed, theoretically this is mass producible, but extremely expensive. The F6F-5N quest even consumes one of these...

    This event kind of gave out really good fighters, now there's the 13AA Reppu K2 as well.


    Got stuck and cannot proceed, then you, my first battleship passionately came: Kongou 143/165, 2016-02-28

    Thanks to touch keeping failing to activate, I get to farm DEs. I have more DE drop rate than touch rate. 4 last dance battles, 3 DEs dropped, ONLY 1 touch activated and it's not this battle. So in total I got 2 sets of HP DE fodder :D



    And yes, this "snipe" battle was also done without touch activating. WTF Nagato. So here's the damage to the boss:
    Airstike: 74
    Akagi: 48
    Intrepid 281 (Friend fleet OP)
    Isokaze normal torp: 104
    Maya: 37,42
    Kitakami: 339
    Johnston normal torp: 55 kill



    Personal opinion for E5: With friend fleet, this is easier than either E3 and E4 with their friend fleets. Maybe today's friend fleet also made them easier. Not sure if it's due to sparkles I never had got taihai before boss in all 4 LD sorties, making the damkamis good luck charms. While E3 and E4 LD runs I had retreats. Also first event in a while where I didn't managed to use damcon/kami and the shortest event last map LD.

    RIP to all the brave souls who wrecked their resources and SAN trying this before friend fleet arrived.

    @ofi123 Gratz, and I agree, this friend fleet is very strong.


    The sexiest bridge ever made.

    @211303

    Thanks. Considering I won without touch activating and not many manages to pass before friend fleet, it's pretty obvious this was designed with friend fleet shelling in mind.

    @211303 I'm not getting AS at Node X since my Fight-bomber is not upgraded enough, should I just switch it with another fighter?




    Death from above!

    @Danielosama In that case, either A) switch Iowa for Musashi so you can move the radar on Sara to Musashi and have another fighter, or B) go with full touch comp and put radar on Mutsu as well.

    I probably will prefer plan a.

    This new night fighter from Hard clear is certainly a good plane! It is just of little value to those who have several +12 AA planes already, at least it is to me.
    My Reppuu 601s are not improved and therefore never see action.
    As for the Iwai, I think the fighter-bomber should be the one to have if you already have the Iwamoto. This one comes in handy in some of the event maps. (I believe I even used it during this event.)
    If I am not mistaken, one of the recent quests rewards a Reppuu Model 11. Did you get yours from the event or from this quest?
    I had started progress on upgrading an F6F-4 earlier this year but dumped this project. I am glad I did because that would be another expensive piece of equipment that I have to retire (most notably rip maxed Bismarck and Italian guns and).
    That +13 AA Reppuu Kai Ni is unobtainable as of now, right?

    This event is indeed great for fighters, it would suck as a beginning player to miss out on these.

    It seems they made E-5 too easy then. l0l
    This is exactly my problem with the Friend fleet mechanism.. :/

    I am going to take this on again without that powerful Friend fleet.
    First, I need to get my Fletcher up to level 55 though...
