Japan very accurately lost WW2 for one reason.
They brough too many carriers to Midway and by chance were separated by 600miles from their battleship screen and 80% of their carrier force in volume of planes were destroyed before they could correct the problem.
To bring too much force is to expose yourself to needless risk.
Japan would likely NOT have lost WW2 had they understood this concept.
But their mentality was one of all risk all the time
I could go on about the tactical mistakes at the start of Japan’s midway operation but if they simply sent parity they would have lost only 40% of their air forces in the Pacific.
Had they not sought to converge their Pacific fleet north with their Pacific fleet south as close to midway as they did (rushed for speed) they would have had a proper fleet composition at all times and 80% of their air forces in the Pacific would not have been without a battleship screen.
Had they understood the basics of fleet composition at all. 80 % of their air forces would never have been without a battleship screen period.
