    Well, you can use both Shigure and Shikinami I suppose. Bonus against sub hime isn't the most important thing.

    Cleared Hard... Again questioned myself whether I'm fit for doing Hard Mode again...

    Basically Air Parity Nagato touch build...

    Main Fleet
    Lv 128 Nagato: 2x Guns / AP / Radar
    Lv 98 Mutsu: 2x Guns / Ap / Radar
    Lv 127 Akagi Kai Ni: DB / FT / TB / FT / FT / Rockets K2 (RE)
    Lv 128 Ise Kai Ni: 2x Guns / +10 Skilled Zuiun 634 / 2x Fighters / Bulge (RE)
    Lv 115 Hayasui: 2x SPF / 2x Underway Replenishment (one in RE)
    Lv 86 Akitsushima: 3x SPF / Rockets K2 (RE)

    Escort
    Lv 106 Chokai: 2x Guns / Night Recon / Radar / Bofors (RE)
    Lv 131 Naganami: 2x Guns / Radar / Bofors (RE)
    Lv 99 Chikuma: 2x Guns / Zuiun K2 / Starshell
    Lv 85 Atlanta: GFCS+5inDP / 5inDP / Searchlight
    Lv 134 KTKM: Midget Sub / 2x Guns / Bofors (RE)
    Lv 109 Johnston: 2x Torps / Sonar / Bofors (RE), Luck: 53

    Node Support, fully sparkled, with full intention to neutralize Node L PT imps and DDs, which they did really well:
    Lv 160 Kongou: Gun + 3x Radar
    Lv 145 Haruna: Gun + 3x Radar (Later runs replaced with Lv 98 Hiei because of morale)
    Lv 134 Zuikaku: T99 Egusa / Jet Keiun / 2x Radar (Interchanged with Shoukaku/Sara/Taihou because of morale)
    Lv 138 Zara: 2x Guns / 2x Radar
    Lv 147 Yuudachi: 2x B4 Guns / Radar
    Lv 134 Ayanami: 2x A3 Guns / Radar

    Boss Support: 3BB 1CV 2DD, not noteworty
    A couple of runs fully sparkled, several just the BBs and CV, final run only the Flagship was sparkled...

    LBAS:
    Runs that actually made it to the boss:
    Base 1: Toukai x4, Sub Node
    Base 2: Fighters x4, Boss Node

    Runs that didn't make it to the boss despite fully sparkled fleets:
    Same fleet as @BlitzAceSamy 's



    My first clearing run that made it to the boss wasn't fully sparkled, and almost took down the boss who had only 23 HP left... Everyone decided to miss at the last minute...
    I tried a couple more times which made it to the boss, but had Red Ts and stuff...
    Since each boss attempt consumed two Underway Replenishments, I wanted to have a greater chance at the boss node...
    So I tried going all-in, fully sparkled everyone, and had offensive air bases instead of supportive ones.

    Not a single run of the ~6 runs made it to the boss, mostly failing the sub-hime node and preboss. Failures at prebosses felt like unlucky runs, like a single Hayasui getting hit twice, or a Chuuhaaed ship gets targeted...

    Then eventually I gave up sparkling and went with the Toukais at sub node again.
    The first attempt resulted in Mutsu being one shot by the CL at the first node LOL.
    Well it's unsparkled, I don't lose much apart from resources...
    Then comes the final run when the stars aligned, it wasn't possible without the friendly fleets.


    Got stuck and cannot proceed, then you, my first battleship passionately came: Kongou 143/165, 2016-02-28
    LSC Journey | Taihou 2016-06-16 | Yamato 2016-09-03 | Musashi 2016-09-08 | Bismarck 2016-09-10
    KanDex complete: 2018-03-18

    Yeah, I'm surprised we ended up having the exact same main fleet, especially since initially I was trying Shoukaku with two jet planes and Atlanta in main fleet and Hayasui in escort fleet (who's too fragile for the sub node D, and couldn't do anything to help for the night battle at boss, so I figured I'd just move her to main fleet and replace her with Maya)

    @kazenorin well, one thing I would say about the comp is that if you are going with AP comp, there is no reason at all to fighter sweep the boss node. What that would achieve is to lower the fighter power, which you really don't need. Going YOLO with 4 bomber is better in that situation.

    Another thing is that, Johnston, despite the x1.2 bonus, is not a good choice here due to her low stat. Remember that just because a ship has bonus damage doesn't necessary make her a good choice. With your setup, she would only be doing ~332x2 with her TCI, which is significantly lower than any capped TCI without historical damage (~350 x2) or NGNM (~440 x2). This goes the same for both Chikuma and Choukai, although in their case they can go with 1 red 3 yellow or 2 red 1 scamp, which is an acceptable setup in this map. And on that topic, since you are going with AP, night scout and other recon in escort is completely useless, and should be removed for more firepower.

    @ofi123 well, that's the problem. You are having x0.8 modifier against those air raids. Probably getting AD only with only one rocket interceptor. You really need all three of those.
