Okinawa again: enemies only patrol over their ships, which are far

So, a question again over Okinawa. I'm Marine, against Japanese. We have enemy kamikazes and enemy fighters. Enemy fighters are based outside the map, and they ALWAYS patrol over Japanese ships, which are way up north, so I never encounter them. My question is, what should I do in order to make those fighters come and attack me (or friendly bombers) over Okinawa island? My guess is that something similar might happen in other campaigns that have enemy ship patrols.

I gave the DCG stock campaign a try this evening and I didn't have this issue.  But then I was USN and the US carriers were the prime target of the Japanese planes.

Which means that you got carrier attack missions?

 

Anyway, at first, I did get some dogfights.I can't verify for a month, but I guess that the Japanese ships were closer to Okinawa in the first missions, and then they started to get farther and farther. Maybe I could tell you in a month or so if that'ts true or not, If so, the issue would be to have Japanese planes assigned not to ship escort, but to airfield patrol or column protection.

Yes, I got carrier attack missions.  Japanese planes should prioritize US carriers over protecting their own shipping that are moving away from Okinawa.

 

A quick fix might be to reduce the "action radius".  Then once the ships move away from Okinawa, the Japanese will focus on the action closer to the island.

But, are you the attack flight or the escort?

Because I fly with Corsairs and get the missions I told you above.

And your action radius?  Have you tried making it smaller?  It should force the Japanese squadrons based off-board to transfer to on the board.

I currently don't have acces to my gaming computer, so that'll have to wait. However, if Japanese squadrons get transferred to Okinawa island, they'll get shreded to pieces beore they take-off, by nearby allied ships. That is already happening with Japanese bomber squadrons currently based on Okinawa.
