I just want to point this out: The Kestrel could've been sunk in Port St. Hewlett if Wardog didn't show up. And the Buzzard and Vulture could've also been sunk when they were trying to pass through Eglin Straits.
The Yukes have a battleship, Cruisers, Destroyers, Aegis, carrier (Admiral Tsanev), and subs.
In my point of view, the Yukes could've decimated the Osean fleets. If the Kestrel, Vulture, and Buzzard were sunk in the early stages of the war, the Osean Navy will only have the Aircraft Carrier Barbet along with the Chivalry, Halcyon, Iolite, and two other ships in their fleet to fight the Yuke fleet in "Sea of Chaos".
Wow, you really got a point there, Touché! haha, well I dont know how to counter attack your arguments at this point, but I just wanna point out that the Yukes attacked at Eglin Straits (thats Rendezvouz right?) because they had Scinfaxi, and at the beggining of the thread they said no wardog, no supersubs, etc.
So taking the Scinfaxi outta the equation, if the Yukes would have showed of in that mission that would be an easy win for Osea, there were several Osean squadrons looking after the Kestrel, Vulture and Buzzard apart from you, remember?
Now about the argument Solaris exposed in on one of his posts:
3 aircraft carriers with so few aircraft isn't the best way to wage a war.......
Its pretty valid, even tho its only for the Kestrel, that was the only carrier that was short on pilots, theres no line on any cutscene or inflight chatter that says Buzzard or Vulture was short on birds.
