    @firehawk12 For Part 1 keep in mind I used Nagato/Mutsu fleet before swithcing to Nelson fleet so you'd replace those albeit Nagato & Mutsu worked fine for part 1 - it's part 2 where I had problems. Also on Hard so if you're on Medium/Easy shouldn't be as difficult (though personally, I'd still go with Nelson fleet for Medium at least)

    Part 1 fleet was Main = Nagato (or Nelson), Mutsu (or Musashi K2) Iowa, Saratoga Mk.II Mod.2 CVB, Ise k2 & Suzuya CAV; Escort = SB Roberts, Kasumi, Abukuma, Bismarck Drei, Johnston, Kitakami (mine is luck modded, but go with NB DA here and Part 2 if not on Hard for sure). Also, if using Nelson Fleet will want to re-order BB accordingly. Airpower was 517-520. CAV will be SPF mule here. Use Rockets K2 in RE slots if you got them. Kasumi is a given here along with both USN DD given decent base luck and higher multiplier.

    As KenG mentioned, you can use Shigure, but AFAIK she doesn't get a bonus for Part 1 (and no specific bonus for Part once you do all unlocking). According to KC Wikia it seems all DD get 1.3x bonus once you unlock for Part 2. So my first choice might be Ayanami here TBH, especially if luck modded. Can also go with Yukikaze over Shigure though I've seen comps with Shigure. Yukikaze has a bit more total NB power than Shigure. Definitely check KC Wikia for historic bonuses for other DD and use accordingly if luck modded (e.g. a luck moded Shiranui or Kagerou would be preferred since same bonus as Kasumi). There is one friend fleet with Shigure & Yukikaze, but it's quite meh so wouldn't worry about it.

    FYI - Unlocking as follows. May not be most efficient with LBAS plane swapping, but this worked well enough for me. Hope it helps. GL. **[EDIT] Forgot to mention this. Unlocking below was for Hard.. Easy/Medium do not require all that (assume you'll go at least Easy. That should be no big deal for you and get the NB fighter so worth it). For example, You don't need to get AS at Node G for Easy, and you don't need to get AS at Node F for Easy or Medium. Check KC Wikia (or other) if you have any questions as to what you need to do for a specific difficulty level.

    FYI #2 - once you clear & if time, you may want to consider farming E-4 for USN DD (Johnston, SB Roberts & Fletcher). Pain to be sure, but my guess is that at some point there will be more US based events = again USN ships, including DD will get historic bonus so good to have around.

    [+] Spoiler

    I. Achieve Air Superiority (AS) at Node E. Used Part 1 STF with Saratoga as pure fighter mule & 2x fighters on Ise. (there's only a sub node before Node E). Airpower = 648-653. Use 1 LBAS group for fighter sweep. Use Toukai LBAS to handle troll sub node.

    II. Achieve Air Superiority (AS) at Node F. Used CTF. Just grabbed a couple CV(B) and went bit overboard (LOL) with airpower. Main = Saratoga, Intrepid, Kaga all as fighter mules + Takao, Atago & Maya (AACI). Escort = Prinz Eugen, Kitakami, Abukuma, Kasumi, Johnston & SB Roberts. Airpower = 957-959 and used LBAS fighter sweep as well. Again only a sub node before Node F. Use Toukai LBAS for troll sub node again.

    III: Achive Air Superiority (AS) at Node G. Same CTF as above except put in an AV (used Chitose as escort flag in place of Prinz Eugen). LBAS as before with a fighter sweep and Toukai for troll sub node.

    IV. S rank at Node X. Used STF I planned to used for Part 2 EXCEPT AV (flag) in 2nd fleet in place of SB Roberts. Again, was using Nagato/Mutsu at that point, so sub in Nelson & Musashi K2 if using for part 2 and perhaps fleet order accordingly for Nelson Touch. Main = Nagato (or Nelson), Mutsu (Musashi K2), Iowa, Saratoga, Ise K2, Suzuya; Escort = Chitose, Bismarck Drei, Abukuma, Kitakami, Kasumi, Johnston. Airpower = 401-402. LBAS Groups 1 & 2 4x LBAS bombers to Node x (range 8), Group 3 Toukai again to troll sub node B. May want to use Node shelling support here.

    V. Achieve B or better rank at Node V - MUST use TCF (have fun). Main = Ise K2, Hyuuga K2, SB Roberts + 3x other DD (just grabbed Ikazuchi, Inazuma & Samidare); Escort = Abukuma, Maya, Prinz Eugen, Johnston, Kasumi, Ayanami. Airpower = 221. **IMPORTANT** This is a LOW LoS fleet which you need for branching. Otherwise, will have to use an AV. So I had NO Radar OR Recon planes - even on Maya. Just fighters on Ise & Hyuuga as needed. Loaded up on AA (I have a lot of 10cm HA+FD, also 5" Mk30 guns on Johnston for some AACI on top of lesser Maya AACI), then 25mm concentrated, bofors, etc. where I could fit that. Also a bit of NB equipment in case I needed to go into NB. IMO Node support here is mandatory. LBAS - Groups 1 & 2 - 1x fighter + 3x LBAS bombers to Node V (range =7), Group 3 Toukai to troll sub node. This worked for me (took 2 sorties).

    VI. Achieve Air Superiority (AS) during an enemy air raid against your LBAS. You know the drill here. Pick a fleet and put all fighters & interceptors for LBAS and set to defense. Sortie for a bit (may not want to go too far to limit damage to ships at tougher nodes) until you get AS during raid. When you are done, you should auto-return to base and get animation for short cut.

    @Ghoulvarine: Yo! Hope all is well. If not too late, I'd definitely do E-1 H for extra RE reward. E-1 is not difficult. Only other thing is that you MAY (not 100% sure on this) want to do E-4 Medium because if you have any time left/inclination, E-4 medium is probably easier to farm for new USN DD (or any USN DD you want) since Fletcher will drop on A-rank. Only S for Easy & Casual and S-win on Easy isn't a lock given change to boss comp (BB Water Oni). Best of luck!

    @goesto11 Thanks! I'm currently experimenting on a low-resource build for farming e5h post-clear, so hopefully I can get some decent drops before event ends.

    @goesto11 Thanks! Does it have to be the CVB form of Saratoga? I kept her in her normal form since I figured I'd end up using the three other CVBs if I needed one.

    @firehawk12: Yep, needs to be Saratoga MkII. Mod 2 CVB which isn't too bad to convert (though RIP more resources >_>). At least no proto catapult, BP, etc. CVB ability to launch at chuuha important as are the extra plane slots. You can run quite close to getting enough airpower so every point helps here. I switched to CVB for E-5 and have already switched back to MkII since I use built-in NB ability quite a bit on normal maps.

    As for other CVB, want US ship historic damage bonus. You can use Intrepid here if you want, but I think CVB abilities make Saratoga CVB the better choice - at least on Hard and probably Medium as well. Easy, eh, not as big of a deal. To be clear, I think you can clear even on Hard with Intrepid, but Saratoga CVB will give you a better chance.

    EDIT - Just thought of this and made a note in my reply above, but also here to be thorough. Unlocking guide above was for Hard, Medium & Easy do not require all of that. So if not too late, keep that in mind. Again, assuming you'll be clearing on at least Easy (should not be a problem for you and well worth it to get the NB fighter).

    GL.

    ----
    @Ken G - GL on the farming. I'm just too depleted to think about farming anything more this event.

    @goesto11 Thanks! I was thinking of trying Medium as much as I can and then dropping to Easy if it doesn't work. I'll take a look at the steps... but it looks like there's a step that's for Casual ONLY (as opposed to Causal+)? That's interesting.

    @firehawk12: No problem, glad I could help. Yes, there's a Casual Only step, but given that Casual doesn't need to deal with Node V, it's minor in comparison. For Medium, you'll need to do all the steps I listed except Air Superiority at Node F (Step 2 in post above).

    Got almost 3 days left so feasible to clear on Medium, but yes, worst case drop down to Easy. Pretty sure that these days if you drop down a step, you don't have to do it all over again (but do need to do all steps if you go up in difficulty). FWIW, with Easy, I'd probably drop a DD (keep USN DD then Kasumi if only 1x USN DD) for a 2nd CLT (Ooi) since Easy Boss armor is manageable at 242 with Ooi/Kitakami near NB Cap with NB DA and also get 1.2x historic bonus once you unlock things. Only downside is that you can use a CLT for Farming E-4 Hard post clear and all 3 maybe locked to other maps if going 2x CLT here (of course you may have a clone). Given limited time left, that probably isn't a big concern for you.

    On Medium, I'd go with NB DA on Kitakami for sure, but probably stick with 3x DD and NB TCI. Bit debatable thought TBH. A 30pt drop in Boss final form armor is significant for sure given 1.2x bonus for CLT. Easy Boss damaged form is 20 under Medium, but the big difference from Medium is fewer Hime meat-shields on Easy. So... up to you on this.

    Second CLT on Hard doesn't really work though which is why I didn't do it. Among other reasons (i.e. damage potential), a second CLT on Hard means one less place to put RADAR and you need 6x RADAR on Hard so that's a problem. Only 4x RADAR on Medium (and 2 on Easy) means you can go triple torps on DD or even add a second star-shell placed on one DD instead of RADAR (or the DD with star-shell/RADAR gets replaced by 2nd CLT. You get the idea).

    If you do go 2xCLT w/ NB DA, let me know. Kind of curious as to how that works out.

    Guess I can't push twitch clips here. Well below is someone's E-5 LD kill, by Tanikaze of friend fleet dealing 576 damage with TCI.

    @goesto11 Yeah it's not so much as me having lost interest in the game. But after doing successive hard events (though normal on last maps usually for the past year and half), I just wanted to prolong my break from it. Come summer event, I'll definitely give it my best again. I wasn't able to farm Johnston in the previous event so I'll see if I can get Fletcher here.

    This TTK managed to clear E-5 hard with Yura main fleet flagship and got super lucky with 3 DDCI on the boss while 3 meat shields remain standing. Pretty much the most snipe of all snipes of this event from what I've seen.
