Hello Ramon,
I am afraid KI-27B will not do much against B-17. If I remember correctly, you should have some KI-44 available. IMHO, if you could transfer them instead, they would definitely do better.

hello Gilbert !
Thanks for the advice !
My Ki-44 Tojos are escort training at Canton.... They are very appreciated.. The Ki-27b daitai transfered to Samah is only to get down the B-17 pilots morale when flying unescorted. I am sure they will not down any of this "monster".
My "secret weapon" against B-17 will be smash their airfields at Luzon-Mindanao to avoid more intruders into my sanctuaries.

Thanks a lot for you good advise !
Best of wishes.
Ramón

TO: GEN. TOJO, HIDEIKI. PRIME MINISTER. TOKYO.
SUBJECT: INDUSTRY, LOGISTIC AND SHIPS PROGRAM
DATE: DECEMBER 10TH 1941.

No Armament or Vehicles assembly will be expanded, it is not neccesary now. H.I. will be lightly expanded, but not now, in a near future probably.

Aircraft factories have been expanded like following:

G3M2 from 22 to 44.
H6K4 from 6 to 12.
Ki-36 chages to A6M2 (22)
Ki-51 have been turned off (probably will be change to L3Y2)

Others factories have been expanded in the past (A6M2 to 112 from 56, B5N2 to 24, D3A1 to 36, G4M1 to 50 and Ki-43IC from 32 to 64)

CVL SHOHO have been accelerated like 4 Tankers. I main decission must be taken in near future about CV SHINANO.
Submarines RO probably will be cancelled.

Engines: +100 Ha-35 (we are awaiting best conditions to expand Ha-32 and Ha-33).

Hello Ramon,

This means an enemy SCTF is not far from your base. IIRC, SOC-1 Seagulls are carried by CAs and OS2U-3 Kingfishers by BBs. Might be a good opportunity for KB to have some target practise.
On the other hand, the enemy Sub Threat is more than annoying and should be eliminated ASAP.

Regards
Gilbert

Hello Gilbert. Thanks for your comments. Kingfishers are from independent land based unit (I am sure about it), and about SOC-1 I am in doubt, but they was 5 aircrafts. Only CA Houston could be in this waters, I am not pretty sure, but could be another land based unit (I can not remember!).... KB is far away from P.I for the other hand, they are returning to Truk for the next blow (PM).

The allied sub threat is annoying, sure !!...Several ships have been sunk (I regret the Nagoya Maru sunk!, she was an strategical piece in my submarine warfare, i will must to transfer to her base another AS converted ship).

Best wishes
Ramón
