I would have to say this mission is the hardest then it would be enggame at midway. Well the difficulty is Veteran and I keep hearing people having trouble with this mission. So here is easy tips. Once the mission starts turn east for a while just enough to not get in range with the Japanese DD because if you don't get in range with it and, it will basically ignore you and for the PT boat just shoot it with AA but try to turn on all water and try to dodge the torpedoes. Okay once that DD moves west then move down south to the first cargo ship where the PT harbor and fortress is. Once you come in range with the first cargo ship, which is when your blank light with like 1.2 turns to orange. Fire one set of torpedoes. I mean by just press the trigger at that cargo ship once. Don't fire all your torpedoes because 2 is enough and it takes forever to reload torpedoes. Then make a right once you come in range with the fortress. Destroy the fortress and you will be between on all these cargo ships and remember two sets of torps. and don't forget to use you parrots torpedoes also. Don't even bother destroying the PT harbor it just wastes time but if you want to take the risk of destroying it do destroy it but you will have to face 3 PT boat charges if you Don't destroy the Pt harbor but who cares. Just keep destroying the ships once youve fired all of your fletchers torpedoes then tell your fletcher to get out of there and let the parrot finish the rest of the job and your done and the reinforcements haven't even arrived yet.

Islands of Solomons : if you're in an airfield (Yap side!)launch all zero's with bombs and let em attack the shipyard , the shipyard should be destroyed in an instant and you can use your zero's as fighters then

2 reasons to do :
1: zeros with bombs are way faster than Dive bombers
2: the bombs are doing more damage

I found this mission quite easy and did it on my secound go (on vet difficulty), all I did was use one destroyer to make a diversion to distract the enemy away from the PT shipyard. Then I brought my other destroyer to take the fortress out and everything else for the objectives. But the key and I must say it to:
1. Create a deversion
2. Be quick to take out everything before back up for the japs comes.
Get these two things right and the misssion should be easy.
