Approaches to San Jose: Another shot at Chuyo...we miss. Chuyo uses up her second...

Well, I guess Drum can be forgiven for mistaking Kirishima for Kongo. I considered release Juneau and Trenton from their guard station at San Jose but I thought it was safe because Haruna had been torpedoed. Oh well, **** happens. To the men of Trenton and Cummins.....we salute you.

And...the payoff....Ritter Yerrow Baahstards break a Corsair. San Jose was 18% of the way to level 2. Not any more. It would have been nice to have a level 2 to support a landing near Lucena..but it won't be San Jose.

Bettys are in the house! Illosis was ordered to drop off some suppries to get Roxas airstrip operational. JJ cannot have been happy with this either considering there are about 30,000 troops on AP's with no air cover rounding Leyte.

First it's the &*(^%%&& Haruna .. now it's the *&^$#%&^ Kongo !!!!! I would assume eventually JJ will run out of escorting DD's before the Arries run out of platforms ...

At least the &*(^%%&& Haruna has major damage after taking 4 torps over 3 days .. The emperor will not be happy about that ..

Just one note the IJN ships on fire are not damaged enough to form an escort TF ... I might expect to see them back in action soon ..

22 Bettys that might have been in Burma are now active in the PI. Almost certainly the dozens of transports and LST/LCT groups sweeping around Leyte will have been spotted. The transports inbound for Ramree were likely spotted today (but I haven't watched the replay yet).

JJ will have to do some thinking about where to put their air resources.

Also another IJN carrier had her air group slaughtered today...Haruna may already be an artifical reef...Kongo needs to rearm. Things are looking pretty good although the potential CAP of 40-45 fighters over Legaspi next turn may not be enough to avoid all loss.

Still thinking we can get some cheap fighter cover over Ramree for a few days by flying LRCAP from Akyab. I think there is enough supply, even if there is no aviation support. Either we could fly in aviation support from India or just send some P-40K's there and let them fly without ground support for a few days. They hold up pretty well because of their service rating.

Not sure if the RAF fighters have long enough legs but maybe there are some Beaufighters or something. P-38's might even be able to fly LRCAP from Cox Bazaar or whatever that base is called north of Akyab...or from Chittagong with drop tanks. Not sure of airfield size at Cox Bazaar.

Hmmmm Do you think Amazon analyzed your last WitP AE move and connected the plan to invade Ramree Island with materials needed to support the Rangoon Railway ... Wow that is some G2! I am not sure htat WitP AE has that kind of detail ....

Wow! Amazing what you find out when you watch the combat replay.

USS Drum was on fire (figuratively). She attacked the task force with Kirishima once and was driven off. She attacked Haruna twice putting a total of FOUR torps into her last night (6 torp hits on Haruna in last 2 days). Then she hit a DD with a dud torpedo.

Kisaragi, in the Kongo task force was hit badly enough to have to be detached and Yubari was burning pretty good.

This means on the last two nights we traded Trenton and a DD for Haruna and a badly damaged IJN DD. Not bad, really.

There are also two surface groups inbound toward the PI about 200 mi SW of Okinawa. I'll have to work out if they can reach Legaspi the next night.

Haruna is either a hulk or sunk with 6 torp hits. Kirishima and Kongo BOTH live.

At least part of the Luzon landing group is spotted as our our ships in the Bay of Bengal.

**************Mandrake Household*********

SG Jr(III, 11 year old, Adopted but not red-headed) gave me some lip the other night. She was arguing with me about bedtime because the analog clock hadn't made the time switch. I had to count to twenty and put on an epsiode of "House of Cards" to decompress.

In the morning, a report was made to the Discipline Officer (SG). SG threatened to beat her mercilessly if she tried that again. SG also announce that I had been granted delegated authority to use the cat-o-nine-tails. The seven year old, SG(IV) chimed in, hoping, I guess, to reinforce the lesson.


SG Jr(IV): Mom can hit harder too.

FAM: No she can't.

SG Jr(IV): Yes she can. She's not a senior citizen.

FAM: <Ouch! Them's fightin' words pardner> No she can't. I can bench press 200. <As soon as I said it I realized how lame that sounded>

SG: Still?
