Strangely enough the enemies lost more time and ammo attacking a transport convoy that was delivering supplies and a CD Gun regiment at Sadogashima...not a single one survived to tell the tale...

...but the time lost by the japs gave Palliser another chance...
His TF was mauled in desperation...but was still close to the action, screened by a curtain of artificial smoke...
Aboard the Gambia he took the decision of his life...
The Supreme Sacrifice...
...the orders were given...
...one more shot for the pride of England..

...and his remaining ships moved over the enemy again....

...when the japanese ships turned their route westwards the day was already arrived... 5:00 o'clock in the morning... and right in front of them stood the friend they met the night before...Burke with his DDs...

The american commander placed himself between the japs and their retreat way...and engaged again a duel for life under a stormy sky....

Before finally retiring Burke ordered on the radio..."too all the sub hunters...the enemy is bearing westwards...route 275... 19 knots...GET 'EM!"

...

The first ship who got the message was the SS Scamp which the night before had fired a couple of torpedoes (that didn't explode) against one of the japanese DDs that were opening the way for the battleships...

This time, with the enemy divided and scattered in several different TF formations, the brave american sub had better luck....

...but it wasn't over...

Despite the bad weather the japanese simply didn't want to give up...now that the navies had ended their mortal dances, it was again the moment of the air forces to tangle...

Early in the morning arrived the american CAP from Hakodate...saluted by the waves and hurrahs from the beaches...

But with them arrived also a wave of japanese Navy planes...

The battles raged for 30 minutes and despite the efforts, despite the heroism shown the americans pilot couldn't overcome completely the great escort the japs have given to their bombers...

The warships that were still lingering near the shores after the night battles were attacked and all of them sunk....

more dead bodies were piling up on the shores of Sadogashima....what a crude show...

Losing all of those BBs won't please the Emperor.

It would be interesting to see a shot or list of the number of major combat ships the Allies have left. I know you lost a lot early, but many of the US ones would have been replaced by new shiny CAs and CLs. How many of each of these things do you have left to play with?

The scale and frequency of these battles is making me start to question what's going to be left to fight in a few months for each side.

Yup, i'm very sorry for the loss of 4 Fijii Class CLs...those were supposed to be very good light cruisers, with modern guns and torpedoes...and with very experienced crews...i hoped in something more having fought at very close range but yet i cannot complain

Go Tin Cans!! BTW, how is your DD supply? I know that have many jobs to do and you get plenty but they have been busy. Do you still have enough to go around?

I've lost 144 DDs so far...

...the worst losses are on the cruisers side...

holy crap, all 8 BB at PH sunk? How many attacks did rader fly against PH back then? Have too look at your first pages me thinks...

your ship losses look horrible to be honest and even more so is it amazing to me that you nevertheless were able to land on Japan. Not having followed your AAR until the later stages I guess I have to go through your 211 pages of AAR.

Well, let's say i went through 2 very bad years
KB bombed PH for 6 days in a row...nothing was left when she sailed away...
Then yes, i tried to fight everywhere i could...but finally in 1943 the tide started to turn and we finally were able to win a couple of naval battles (At Miri, at Rekata Bay at Tulagi)..and the tables are now more or less even me thinks...

Yup, if you wanna see what really means being slapped for 18 months take a look at the first pages

hats off to you Sir, I think there are not that many people around sticking to the game suffering those losses AND still managing to land where you are now. Hats off to rader as well for inflicting those losses...

Yes! +1 to you both!

Most of the US CAs and CLs lost early on must have been replaced by new ones though, right? What is left in the arsenal now?

Staying for extra days of attack on Pearl seems to be a pretty standard tact for Japanese players. Is there any merit to sortying (sp?) everything from Pearl in a last ditch effort to get a night intercept on the KB while scattering every ship in port to the four winds? I have had limited success with that tactic against the AI. Seems like about one in every four attempts meets with sufficient success to force the KB to limp home with carriers full of shell holes.

After all, if you're going to lose every ship in port anyway, why not go down fighting? And as for scattering, yes you will lose ships to the subs just as in the evacuation from Manila and the KB, if undamaged by the night action, will sink many of the the ships running, but at least some will have a chance to get away.

I realize it's far too late for your game, but am just wondering what all the experienced PBEMers here do when faced with a protracted Pearl Harbor strike.

as to the loss of surface combat ships I can only say lately you have put them in the right places to extract a price for their loss. Nelson put it better, "...no captain can do very wrong if he places his ship alongside that of the enemy"

Propose a DaBabes rematch and watch the Japanese player bang his head against an AAA wall.
At least this would be my choice.

(edited, since I noticed Greyjoy asked us to stop talking about it)

I'll just leave here that I think the problem is the HRs make functional (mechanics) rather than substantive (assets) changes.

Jap flattops are big targets and they are nice targets for Dds on night attack..... I'll take the trade any day (or maybe that should be any night)
