Working my way through my first game and I had a couple of questions:
1. After combat is completed do surviving Japanese ships go on to the big strategic map under their ID counter or does the ID counter go back and the ships are discarded?
2. How is surface combat conducted? I have a situation where a Japanese surface force without a carrier moved into my carrier space but I don't see how to resolve that combat.
3. If you send out search planes to a Japanese base do they automatically find something or do you still have to roll for successes?
4. Do ships between the attacking airplane and the target contribute their AA? For example, if I have a Val dive-bomber in space 8 that plans to attack my CV in space 3 and their is a CL in space 5 does the CL also get to fire at the plane? Along the same lines, what if the CL was in the same space as the CV?
Enjoying the game so far and looking forward to finding out the answers to my questions
