44-4-14: Waiting for the results of most current DD Raid. Intel reported enemy ships at 3 ports on north coast of NG. Happened to have a group of DDs nearby that I thought could make a night run up the coast and provide 4x sqn p38 cover on the return. So off we go w/ waypoints set into each enemy port.

Results are in and raid went as planed w/ no allied ship losses. USAAF threw a AF strike into Hollandia in support of DD withdrawal in effort to reduce counter ship strikes by IJAAF.

As expected USN DD flottila reached Hollandia on night of second day and found another unloading IJN trans TF. I suspect RA Callahan used all his torps in his previous action so it became harder to sink these ships.

Looks like the LSTs at wewak got away. So we nailed 2 out of 3 enemy TFs operating in the area. In future FatR will have to escort his Transports into this FEBA w/ capitol ships.

FatR had mined Umboi island w/ maybe 2/300 mines, but it did not take me very long to clear the hex. So my DDs just passed right thru, FatR is trying to close off the Finchshaven passage.

Note I set the TF to Mission speed on purpose. I was afraid on Full Speed they would return on daylight into enemy anti shipping range.

A recap of the turn. I am stalled at Marcus and wake.

Ponepa was shelled by a Mutsu SAG that ran into a USN DD TF.

At the end of the 1st day I have a ScreenPrint of the shelling at Tonguo and the resupply effort at Finchaven which was a success w/ damage to the Alabama. Also note how my CAP over US Alabama gets the job done until the next post.

I thought I had a SC cover force for this amphib TF near Buna. I must have screwed up. Good news is the IJN TF decided to take it's time going home and My TBFs loaded out.

Nice to see you are still slogging away. Would post screenies of major ship losses to date for both sides? Air losses and types? Top pilots and so on...

Well, you look to be doing fine. The fun thing is that due to the early setbacks and learning curve vs a good player, your game will most likely go all the way into 1946. This in itself will be very interesting as I have not seen it happen yet.

As I am sure you noticed every surface warship arriving after 1/44 comes with excellent experience. You just get a flood of Fletchers with great night exp and working torpedoes. Because they have armor and no other DD in the game does, they just are deadly. In low moon conditions, I do not ever bother using larger ships in surface actions. I just flood him with Allied DDs. The high experience modern Allied warships really have started to dominate all surface actions.

Also, I just turned over to 1/45. All of a sudden all Allied green replacement pilots come with much higher skills right off the bat. Navy pilots come right out of school with an average exp of 50 and 50 air skill. Makes it easy to train them up and I am just buried in good pilots for a change. Keep the faith, baby!

Interesting comments since I have noted the same about surface combat w/ the USN DDs. No need to risk the CA/BB on these attritional battles. Check out this result from today.
