That's it for the Jolo environs for today.

The good:

1) Haruna looks to be making about 20 kts (but is not smoking). She is making for one of the Indochina ports or Singapore and probably needs yard time.

2) Jolo airfield is apparently still operational.

3) The 8th Marine convoy escaped serious damage despite a big raid by Vals.

The bad:

1) Tjerk Hiddes lost.

2) Airframe damage at Jolo is substantial

3) Subs can't hit anything.

4) There are still Zeroes over Taytay.

Dadjangas: As predicted, the LYB convoy south of Davao was headed fro Dadjangas. The crusier group that was guarding Sangi was ordered north to intercept. It might have been a clean sweep except they were low on ammo and torps after their fight at Jolo 2 nights ago.

<Bar is noisy and busy. Beer is flowing freely>


Man in fine linen slacks: <pensivley> Yossarian, are you happy in retail?

Hirsute man: What this? This isn't work. It beats milk runs.

Man in fine linen slacks: Yes, but there is no thrill of the chase.

Hirsute man: That is fine by me, you crazy SOB. Cold beer, attractive women <looks at some of dance girls>...well cold beer at least.

Man in fine linen slacks: Yossarian, I am thinking of getting together the 90th Bombardment Squadron again. What do you think?

Hirsute man: Milo, you crazy SOB. Those of us still alive are officially dead.

Man in fine linen slacks: No, I meant a virtual 90th Bombardment Squadron.

Hirsute man: Virtual? <cautiously>

Man in fine linen slacks: Hell, why just a squadron, how about a group? Yossarian, I hereby appoint you commander, M&M Enterprises 1st Medium Bombardment Group.

What the ...? Is this a scheme to have 90th BG draw replacement bombers from the pool and sell them to .... ? I'm not sure Brazil can afford B-17s.

****************7th Air Force HQ, Darwin, March 2, 1943(c)*****************


Gen. Kenney: Alright, son, let's hear it.

Man in fine linen slacks: Thank you General. I won't take up too much of your time but I do have a proposal that may change the conduct of the air war. First, let me ask, who here wants to die for their country?

Young 7th Air Force staff officer: <tentatively> Well...I am willing to die for my country.

Man in fine linen slacks: Yes, "willing to" but do you really WANT to?

Young 7th Air Force staff officer: Well, no, I suppose not.

Man in fine linen slacks: EXACTLY! What if I told you that NOBODY has to die flying bombing missions?

Young 7th Air Force staff officer: Well, there is a limit to how much armor a plane can carry and still have an effective bomb load.

Man in fine linen slacks: This isn't about armor, it's not about bomb load, it's not about bomb sights or formation flying or anti-aircraft guns or fuses or ANY of that stuff! Gentlemen, what I am offering you is the most efficient war fighting organization yet devised...<pause for dramatic effect...General Kenney even leans forward, intrigued> I give you the M&M Enterprises 1st Virtual Bomb Group and the CEO, Colonel Yossarian, M&M Enterprises, Aviation Division. <all eyes turn to Yossarian who is wearing a pin stripe suit with golden eagles on his lapels..he nods. The man in the fine linen slacks begins to speak again>

General, what is the mission statement of 7th Air Force?

Gen. Kenney: To apply novel strategies and new pardigms to achieve the goal of efficiently destroying the war fighting power of the enemy in the Southwest Pacific while simultaneously limiting damage to the biota and the native populations of the area.

Man in fine linen slacks: Precisely! ................

Man in fine linen slacks:...and what does "efficiency" mean here?

Gen. Kenney: Time.

Man in fine linen slacks: Yes. And?

Young 7th Air Force staff officer: Lives?

Man in fine linen slacks: Yes. And?

Man in pinstripe suit: Money?

Man in fine linen slacks: YES! MONEY! <moves to easel with large blackboard> Let's take a United States Army Air Force Medium Bombardment Group. Let's say.... B-25 equipped. Let's say it's March, 1943.

Gen. Kenney: It is March, 1943, son.

Man in fine linen slacks: Indeed! That's how you got to general officer rank, sir. <moves quickly picking up chalk> Unit cost B-25C, anyone? <turns to audience...they look at each other..there is no answer> $109,346 is the cost to the taxpayers for every B-25. Now let's say 96 planes, 20% for spare parts, replacement engines...ummm... another 50 planes for combat and operational losses over the course of the war...ground support capital equipment..I make a MINIUMUM TWENTY MILLION DOLLARS in capital expenditures to equip one USAAF Medium Bombardment Group and we haven't even started with operating costs. <there is an audible gasp in the room>

Now..personnel..say 1,300 officers and men, 18 month campaign plus a year of training..that's 30 months..cautiously I am guessing average pay $150..that makes nearly SIX MILLION DOLLARS in pay alone for an 18 months of war fighting.

Operating expenses...say 1 mission per week per airframe..$1000 of ordnance, aviation fuel, lubricants, tires per airframe per mission..etc...for 18 months..that's 7 an 1/2 million and that's bare bones..that's assuming somebody just GIVES us a few tons of K-rations a week. <adds figure to column and then pauses>

Is that it?

Young 7th Air Force staff officer: What about a base?

Man in fine linen slacks: BINGO! Twin 6000 foot runways, 50 feet wide, taxiways, reventments, avaition fuel tanks...thats at least 40,000 cubic yards of pavement..barracks, base hospital...$1 million..easy. Is that it? <earnest looks but no answers>

NO, it's not. You can't reach Tokyo from Darwin, my friends. You will need AT LEAST 3 more airfields on the march to Tokyo...that's another cool $4 million. <draws a line>

$17.5 million for 75 missions...that $233 thousand dollars a mission....A QUARTER MIILION DOLLARS EVERY TIME YOU WANT TO TAKE OUT A COUPLE OF ZEROES OR KNOCK OUT A JAP AIRFIELD FOR 3 DAYS................

Gen. Kenney: Mr. Minderbinder, I believe you have convinced us that war is a costly endeavor, but you haven't said how you mean to change it.

Man in fine linen slacks: Indeed, General may I ask where you are from?

Gen. Kenney: I grew up in the Boston area.

Man in fine linen slacks: Ah, Boston, not exactly the wilderness but let us say you had a neighbor who raised turkeys and you needed a turkey for Thanksgiving. Would you arm yourself with a shotgun, shoot up his barn and take a turkey from him?

Gen. Kenney: No, of course not. We would strike a bargain.

Man in fine linen slacks: EXACTLY! Now, I have found the Japanese to be a proud but also a pragmatic people. I propose that M&M 1st Bombardment Squadron, Medium act as the financial vehicle to achieve the goals of 7th Air Force.

Gen. Kenney: Financial vehicle? I'm afraid you've lost me.

Man in fine linen slacks: Quite simply, General, our company will use our considerable experience in the field to contract with potential Japanese target commands to conduct virtual air raids on planned enemy targets, with financial compensation, of course.

Gen. Kenney: I'm afraid I still don't get it.

Man in fine linen slacks: Well, to be blunt, we pay the Japs to destroy their own equipment.

Gen. Kenney: <cigar drops out of mouth>

Pretend I did not read the manual. Will task forces comprised of DD's at CL's with adequate main gun ammo but largely depleted torpedoes stay and fight?

We need to squeeze one more night of naval combat out of our CL's before the BB's take over at Jolo.

Set their sailing orders to "Direct" and "Absolute" and set the patrol zone in the hex you want to cover and they will stay. Somewhere around 30% remaining ammo the commanders might get antsy and bug out - not sure if commander aggression affects this. Going Winchester for torps does not seem to affect their decision much, unless it is a sub TF.

Cap'n and Lord Admiral:

Very aggressive gameplay, you two. You're not quite two years ahead of the historical timeline in the central Philipines adventure. You've given JJ's fleet quite the mauling too. Keep up the good work.

Tail wheel aside the asthetics of the British fighters are far nicer than the US versions. The front of the P40 looks like it's a double chin and the Wildcat? looks tubby.

Agree on the particulars of the P40 and F4F. However, what's with the asymmetric pendulous goiter on the Hurricane?

I think the F4F had a radial air-cooled engine while the Hurricane had an in-line water cooled engine which allowed a bit of tapering at the nose. I know the P40's "chin" was for a big radiator for the in-line water-cooled Allison [and later Rolls-Royce Merlin] engine, but I don't know why the Hurricane and Spitfire didn't need such a huge cooling duct. The P-51 also used the Rolls-Royce Merlin engine, but a much developed [high altitude/long range, turbocharged] mark comparted to the P-40 which had a low-altitude version with no turbocharger.

Cotobato: We sent the 8th Marine Regt to Cotobato to disembark as the area North and East and West of jolo is crawling with small groups of LYB ships, even one alleged to contain a BB about 160 nm WNW of Jolo. Naturally, they were bound to be spotted. The strike is well escorted and it looks liek they brough in more Vals after the slaughter yesterday. CAP is poor owing to inadquate aviation support and poor supply at Cotabato.
