I see in the Dutch CRT revision that their night acquisition is now in some respects worst than the USN. Specifically with a full moon. The USN with a full moon acquires on (D12) 1-10 out to 8,000 yards while the Dutch are only 1-9. The USN acquires on 1-8 out to 12,000 yards while the Dutch are 1-7. And the USN acquires on 1-5 out to 16,000 yards while the Dutch are 1-4. I thought the Dutch were supposed to be better at night and that is why the Asiatic Fleet was allowed to use Dutch Night Acquisition to reward it for its superior night training. Now, that is punishment instead. I'm sure Admiral Hart is spinning in his grave awaiting an explanation for why his attempts to improve the night fighting of the Asiatic Fleet have been disavowed. 

 

Could someone in the know, explain the rational behind the change that took the Dutch from slightly better to slightly worse than the USN?
