So the Japanese had severely damaged the CV Wasp. Now it is time for the US Navy to strike. Especially the F4F-4 Wildcats get a serous beating...

GEN Wavell has given the sign for operation "Thunderstruck" (named after on of the best songs ever: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXeyhLXs-NM&feature=related ) to commence. Goal is to kick the Japanese troops out of India

KB attacked Tabiteuea once more and were very lucky that my SBD-3 Dauntless pilots had a party last night and were not as accurate as they should be. 18 clear shots at the carriers. 0 hits. Aaaarrrrggggg!!!!!!! [:@][:@][:@][:@][:@][:@][:@][:@]

dennishe -> What to do with heavily damaged ships that need to be withdrawn (12/14/2011 6:25:07 PM)

The CV Formidable is heavily damaged and needs to be withdrawn in 33 days. The port where it cannot repair the ship and transporting it to Sydney would probably cause here to sink. I don't want to spend al those PPs for a ship that needs to be pulled back anyways. Does anybody have a good way out? Besides putting it to sea and hope it sinks

dennishe -> RE: Thunderstruck!!! (12/19/2011 8:36:51 PM)

In the Philippine campaign I used the "black cats" for torpedo attacks on unescorted ships. Pretty effective. Using such strategies also has a downside. It may be used against you.

Thanks! I'm glad you like it as I'm about to start a second AAR of this kind.
Yes, this game is a lot of fun and full of action. As a result though I'm very short on APs and CVs.

I also like your AAR a lot by the way.

dennishe -> RE: Thunderstruck!!! (12/23/2011 1:07:47 AM)

For some reason battleships take a very important role in this war, whereas carriers have hardly been involved. There was only one carrier vs carrier battle so far (wherein the CV Wasp and CVL Zuiho were sunk) and one one-sided carrier battle wherein KB sank two obsolete US Navy battleships. This one again is a "traditional" battleship vs battleship battle. And the Royal Navy did great [:D]

dennishe -> RE: Thunderstruck!!! (12/23/2011 9:33:23 PM)

Although the battle for Karachi was won, the Japanese blockade just moved further back. Attacking it now with the battleships would make them susceptible for an attack by the carrier based aircraft possitioned further to the south.

Thanks. I wish you and everybody else who reads this also a merry Christmas.

Usually I have a pretty good idea why one of my opponents is making a particular move. This time I'm confused. KB is loitering around Sydney for quite a while now and it hardly has found any juicy targets except for a single CL that was already under repair at port Sydney.

Slowly the US Army is filling all its squadrons with P39s, P40s and P38s and especially with 65 new P40Ks arriving every month things start to look very nice. Especially since we are now winning every dogfight over New Guinea [:D]
