For Strike Fighters 2 with New Guinea Terrain(NewGuinea2)(PTO).
This campaign(second part)with some 61 missions cover the operations of the Tainan Kokutai between May 1 to Jun 30, 1942.
With the RAAF No.75 Sqn decimated(Only 3 combat ready P-40Es by Apr 30, 1942)the new main opponent was the 8th FG with his two squadrons of P-39D/F.
By the end of the month this first FG was reinforced with a second FG(35th FG)with two squadrons with P-39s and P-400s.
Despite the numerical inferiority, Tainan Kokutai continued his near daily strikes and strafing against Port Moresby and in the same time defending his base at Lae, target of many strikes to wipe out the IJN unit.
This missions against Lae were costly for the USAAF, and by May 25, 1942, of the eight B-25s of 3th BG send to strike Lae, only three returned to base.
