    @firehawk12 Pretty sure that must have been a typo for CL.

    In any case E3 and E4 are very hungry for CAs so you want to save your CAs (even those with no Kai Ni) for that. Any TCI-capable CAs and at least one CAV should be saved for E5.

    I thought you wanted to save Kasumi for E-5, or is this a case of having duplicates?

    For utility purposes I am guaranteed to have dupe for those with interchangeable remodels. Getting dupe Saratoga was hell for me.

    I'm wondering where best to use Zara or Pudding? Should I save these for E5? I was thinking of using Zara in E4 and leaving Pudding available for E5?

    @IronWarrior

    Assuming you locked your CAV correctly (Tone+Chikuma to E4 STF for historical bonus against boss, 1 CAV each to E3 main fleet, E4 STF main fleet, E4 CTF main fleet, E5 main fleet to help with muling), you should not need Zara and Pola to do any SPF muling.

    If so, under those conditions, the only place I can think of locking Zara which is optimal would be E4 CTF escort - if you also bring a FBB in the escort, make it a Italian BB to always fire first before Zara. This is because Zara-class' innate long range constantly interferes with the shelling of your BBs and CVs (that have a long-range bomber equipped), who are more likely to do a strong strike than a CA, which makes them not really recommended to sortie alongside them (unless you never use the long-range bombers).

    Zara Due would help in E4 CTF escort because of her highest firepower for a CA and since you will not need the CA slot for any historical ships (since they are locked to STF). Since Pola doesn't have K2 and has weaker stats, she can be ignored. Personally I haven't locked either Zara or Pola and don't plan to for this event.

    One more thing concerning the Nelson touch vs Nagamutsu choice in E3/5. Seeing a decent amount of people suffering in E3 elsewhere, especially when they lack anti-installation equipment, it seems that I have underestimated E3's difficulty when I was first writing this guide. The lack of artillery spotting chance doesn't seem to have a big impact in E5 either now that I tried farming the map post clear. With that in mind, Nelson in E3 and Nagamutsu in E5 seems to be the better choice overall now.

    Thanks for the confirmation. I was already leaning towards using Nelson in E3. Guess I'll wait a few days for the friend fleet to arrive and then get started on phase 2.

    Just wondering though, which ship would make a good 3rd participant for the touch (assuming a nuke DD/CL for the 2nd)?

    @friggo two nuke will be the best. If you don't have that, go with one nuke+one BB, and use one CVL as mule only. That way you can field 3BB in total. One in escort and two in main. I already posted a Nelson touch STF sample comp in the E3 guide.
