    @Kuropo: Only issue with T1 M34 is range of 8 instead of 9. That kind of sucks. :/ So not sure I'll scrap a T1 since I want to be able to field 3 full groups of range 9 bombers (ran into an issue with that once and paid for it. :/). Guess I was giving too much credit/thought to the 14cm twin kai.

    As for Late or SPF. Not sure myself, have 7 SPF, but only 3 at 5AA and two of them are regular Ro.44. Was thinking of making one more T2 SPF. So can get two now and save screws. It's just generally my SOP to get rare-ish improved items that you can't otherwise improve for rewards. If I had a more/better (only one improved :/) SPF, I'd get the Late. Meh, gonna have to do some early "Spring cleaning" when it comes to equipment.


    Thanks to Arkayda for the signature.

    Late298's only niche use is to give extra nb firepower to CAV in escort. It wouldn't work in either single fleet or main fleet as it is just gonna die before boss. You can only sortie two CA type in escort though, so I highly doubt you would need more.


    As for the 14 twin gun kai, while they are surely good for Niishin, it's still a niche gun. If you really want one you might want to wait until event end and Yuubari k2 is released (assuming NY quest doesn't end by then). She might let you improve those.

    Oh, and news concerning the lbas improvement. It seems star on lbas bomber improve both fighter power and damage.

    so given the news there is a slight adjustment for toukai vs m34 imo. I would probably pick m34 if you have 3 or more toukai now. The usual toukai base against sub loli can still work with recon+toukai. For people with 1-2 toukai, consider whether your current sub loli passing rate is good enough for you to pick m34, and whether the dev will release more toukai or LBAS bomber improvement/better LBAS bomber earlier.

    Yeah, I'm leaning toward the M34 more and more. Sure, it'll suck still having just 2 toukai going forward, but I've been clearing events on hard for the past year despite that. The M34 is just too rare to pass on - it's the first time in my whole teitoku career that this piece of equipment has been available (iirc, it hasn't even been given as a ranking reward at any point).

    I guess I'll just suffer a while longer until the next opportunity for a toukai

    While you cannot go wrong with picking either a third Toukai or the T1 M34 LBAA, I think the Toukai has a higher value since there isn't really a replacement for this aircraft. You could sortie 931 air group torpedo bombers and/or stukas in your land base, they only have half the range of a Toukai. On the other hand, you can just sortie any other LBAA instead of the M34, albeit with somewhat lesser (bomber) stats/damage.

    My main concern is still the rarity of the plane. I'm missing the M34 from my gundex. And it'd probably be years until it's available again. I'm wagering that we'll be getting another toukai (or even the 901 toukai) earlier than another M34. This feels kinda like how I gave up on a one-time reward of picking 2x WG42 rockets - despite only having 3 at the time - because I felt I could manage it. And now I'm swimming in those red rockets.

    I've done the past four events on hard with just 2 toukai and it's been manageable. I'll survive.

    Hmm. Which should I pick when I don't need any of them?

    Type 2 spf x2/Zuiun 631 x1/Late298B +2 x2

    I also didn't need any of them but I took the spf even though I already had 8 of them (2x Ro.44, 1x Ro44bis +5 and 5x 5AA spf) since it's the most useful reward.
    You can get the Zuiun from the quarterly quest and improvements on Late should affect only AA and bombing stats and therefore should be pretty useless.

    The quest chain will be removed after the maint on Jan 14. Get on with it if you haven't done it already.
