19 8/30/2020 1:58:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Rule9.2 (Yes, you are right)

In air naval combat, air units that are using their
non-parenthetical extended range in battle halve their attack strengths
(round up) in combat (at normal range they are full strength, even if
they used extended range to move during the offensive).

13 8/26/2020 8:51:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Draw Extra Strategy card Message from Japanese:
I'm not familiar with the system.Therefore, I mistakenly thought that the system had automatically drawn cards for me. Now, I draw extra card, since I played "2 / Submarine Launched Air Attack on the Panama Canal: I-400"
12 8/26/2020 8:49:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message * 4825 (Espiritu Santo): 13AF Air moves to 4524
* 4524: 13AF Air moves to 4224
* 4224: 13AF Air moves to 3922 (Buna)

You can't move to 4524 and 4224, because both of them are not airports. You can move as below:

* 4825 (Espiritu Santo): 13AF Air moves to 4423(use extend range)
* 4423: 13AF Air moves to 4024
* 4024: 13AF Air moves to 3922 (Buna)

Yes, you can arrive at 3922, so no need to change anything now.

Now, both of your 5AF air (3823)and 13AF Air(3922) used Extended Range, so they can't attend any battle. If you try move your 5AF air from 3626 to 3624 then to 3823, you should not use Extended Range.

When you ensure that situation, I will response to it.
