My only tactical question is:

Should I steam back at full speed, mission speed or stay for another two days...


Is it time to feed my hungry SDBs?

44-2-12: Expect a 4 division IJA assault at Prome today. Prome may not hold. In supporting effort I have dropped the 1st marine para battalion at 100prep directly on top of Rangoon to disrupt jap supply for the Prome attack. I dont know if para attack will stop supply flow but I figure in real life it would have a dramatic rear area fear effect. Also in support of Prome I have para dropped elements of the 77th chindit brigade(operating out of Akyab and Mentze) all around SEasia to cause max disruption of Japanese supply flow. In FatR fever to suppress and capture prome he has ignored all other threats.

Supply happens after combat. Besides, unless you control relevant hex sides, having units in the base does not affect supply flow in, out , or through.

My cover forces did not pick up this IJN TF and they caught the CVEs off the port of torokina. But good TF commander escaped this disaster.

Hi All. been on vacation to Wifcon, am still tired from the event one week later. In the Oceans of blood game w/ FatR I wanted to post some updates. 44-2-18.

Intel reports some CVs moving into centpac. Allies have taken Mili and Kusaie island. Kusaie gives me PBY recon over Truk.
