January 15th 1942
News: On the 12th Manila and Moulmein fall to IJA. The KB enters the waters east of Java. After three days of raids on Java and Borneo the Kido Butai and BBTF are off shore of Kendari in the Celebes. In China the Red Chinese and the Generalisimo 26th Army group are attacking on two fronts. It has provoked an immediate reaction. I believe I have forced Terry to commit forces here better used elsewhere.

Nice to see an early Chinese Victory. What areas are you going to defend in DEI?  Do you have any Dutch subs close to the KB?  I see 2, but theres not alot of ways for him to exit the area. Are you useing ur mines any?  My 2 cents.

Also I would think to put those subs on 'react 1' .. and they will find their targets ...at least that has worked for me ...

I snafu'd on the subs. Great advice. emailed the turn first. I am not going to put alot of effort into the celebs. Just some small formations of LBs, mining, (hes killed off most of my sweepers so the fields are on borrowed time)and my only SFTF raided 5 days ago, engaged a small IJN CATF and broke even. No ships sunk but I meted out some damage to modern CA. TF Z bombarded Moulmein and smoked 300 Japs on the 19th. When I figure out this upload thing You will be able to help me alot more, and I need it. Ill post the info sheet (going to be embarrasing) shortly.

January 1942 on Oahu was quite different than the thin man in Gap kaki pants and white polo recalled. He double-checked himself. No logos. No tags. Nothing about his person to arouse undue suspicion. Zulu looked towards Diamond Head. The sight is not repeated anywhere on the planet. This is the lee side of the island. On a typical day it is possible to watch a single one foot wave roll from the Volcano to Pearl Harbor, unbroken, even, and blue and over four miles long. The walk to Pearl was crushed coral, sand and lava rock. It kept you company, as many seaman would come to find, as each step echoed back to your ears. A darting smile appeared on his lips as he mused on his last visit here; the hotels, restaurants and Waikiki in general was filled with Japanese. They really did invade and occupy Hawaii. The approach to the harbor was guarded now. The SPs were wary enough of the natives as they had only arrived since Christmas and characteristic facial recognition just was not in their portfolios. The obvious Anglo Saxon striding towards them caused no alarm.
“Here to see Domino.” Zulu, realizing he was smoking a Winston light with a filter offered an SP a toke.
“Try it, I hope you like it cause I think one day you will change to my brand.” Zulu offered.
“No thanks Mac, looks like zoot suit smokes. What’s your business?
“Tell the XO at CnC Pac. Domino” Zulu loves code names.
After a brief delay in the guard shack, Zulu gets the nod and an escort. When Marshal had queried Zulu on his choice of code names he liked this one. Dominos, set them up knock them down. Innocuous. He could not reveal the true nature of the origin for the chosen password to allow access to the most senior of Allied commanders. Pizza. What every honest war gamer craves at two-thirty in the morning.
“You were responsible?” Chester was awfully direct.
“That’s true sir, indirectly of course.” Zulu is polite.
“I understand on Christmas day there were half a dozen merchant captains ordered to dock, undock, and yet dock again?”
“I also know this to be true sir.” Zulu is also respectful.
“There were orders for soldiers and sailors to load, unload, and load some more?” Chester was not really checking the facts, but rather checking Zulu.
“That was exactly the case, sir. As a matter of fact, nothing actually left Pearl for two more days. The Op points were just to many and I was not inclined to go by the book.” The manual Zulu mused.
"How do you expain this?" Chester slides a clipboard accross the desk, Zulu reaches, with some apprehension as he is sure whats on it.

“Ah yes… Chinese fellow, leading ace with three kills.” Zulu thinks out loud.
“In a Russian bi-plane.” Adds Chester.
“Did I mention the seven weeks we only flew range one CAP?” Zulu mentions this matter of fact like it was some kind of high level experiment rather than the largest TWIT induced FUBAR to date.
“I was not aware you mounted any CAP, certainly not any effective CAP, look at this.” Chester again slides a clip board across the desk. The air losses, particularly fighter aircraft is appalling.
Zulu only hopes he has not seen the tactical reports on the subs or the almost 2nd Force Z raid. The sub commanders had almost to a man been rather tentatively captained and given no range of action while Force Z after a brilliant sortie on the freshly disorganized Japs at Moulmein had just been recalled to port on the 29th the day before the follow up raid was to be launched because POW only had two fourteen inch shells on board.

Japanese aircraft
A6M2 Zero x 14
G3M2 Nell x 31



Allied aircraft
Buffalo I x 8
75A-7 Hawk x 12


Japanese aircraft losses
G3M2 Nell: 8 destroyed, 7 damaged

Allied aircraft losses
Buffalo I: 1 destroyed, 2 damaged
Buffalo I: 1 destroyed on ground
Blenheim IV: 1 destroyed on ground
L-18 Lodestar: 3 destroyed on ground

Results from an effective layered and properly ranged CAP on January 30th. Wish I could have countered with more fighters. Result of FUBAR in fighter co-ordination December- January.

“Looks like one to four to me sir,……I could have sworn it was one to five….”Zulu opining.
“There is more here……Noumea and Suva… are you aware you can’t shove 8ooo tons in a 6000 ton slip? Or better yet 48000 tons on a 9000 ton pier?” Its become quite obvious Chester is not aware of “the button”. That relief is just a click away. Zulu is humble though and intends to do his best for Chester, elevating his reputation and bringing the conflict to favorable resolution. In fact if it had not been for a certain Cpt. Mancake or something he might have read the manual before executing the turns avoiding this type of interrogation all together.
“Look you TWIT, Here is the straight scuttlebutt. Admiral King has tasked us with three missions for the present. One. Protect Hawaii. Two protect the sea lanes from the mainland to Hawaii and on to Australia as far as Samoa. Third. Raid the Gilberts and hurt the Japs.”

Well bad news today from the Tech forum as my partner now has knowledge of Saratoga's TF, Force Z, and my ASW TFs returning from shakedown cruises due to a bug in the q3 Beta. Well Force Z will retire (Just checked on her to find her with no 14" ammo preventing a large SNAFU anyway and Sara will sail asap in escort of several large TFs.

What the above image means is, I lost track of 10,000 Japs in the Jungle along the river. Lt Gen. Iida flanked my lame &^%! I will strike tomorrow with a sweep of the Japs accross the river followed by some low level 2Es. (I hope). And now for the really big part of the show. (I was hoping for one more week here to get ready)

February 2nd 1942
mini Kido Butai 80nm due north of Ambon. The dutch will try and get some torps on them. There are two subs within 40nm.
The Kido Butai raided Raboul; I do not mind this. Expend bombs. The Jap APs I believe were heading to Rabaul appear to have diverted to Kavieng. Good. This buys time for sub division I and III to get astride of their interior lines. RAF squadrons are posting into Burma, doubling my airpower in theater.

Fingers crossed, I have nothing to persue her with.
More good news rapidly follows: CL Kashima hit by 6" coastal defense guns and sunk off Kendari.
Rabaul: transports land 4000+ in the night taking light losses. They can expect the 17th BG (B17) tomorrow afternoon. SubDiv I and II are nearing the Solomons. P40s from Port Morseby trade blows with the Kido Butai's best in the morning. The squadron shows three kills against one of our own, although we did see eight damaged. I will provide a more strategic picture as time allows. Terry and I are exchanging 2-3 turns a day, and I have a job.

Man DOCUP, Terrys been handing it to me. I was wondering if I could be the first one give Japan a AV! Thats a distinction I could do without. Its February and my leading pilot is a china man in a bi plane.

I don't think you would be the first.  I doubt you will give him an AV.  What is your Scores?  Those Bi planes have high MVR ratings.  Are you varying your Alt with your fighters?  Any HRs on Alt or anything.

I have been asked just how Zuluhour can travel into theater. Well most of it is a secret, but it does involve a certain AVG pilot, working for TWIT on the side. Note perfect rooftop landing in the twenty first century, I'd like to see a Raptor pull that off. Also note the distinctive Baltimore Raven logo on the verticle stablizer.

Yes to the alt question. 2nd best MR on sweeps. Ill put up the score the soon; next time I get turn. I have been moving the CAP alt around pretty much 17-2000' for P40s, 12-15000' for Buffalos. I started out using range 0 CAP but that worked as well as a Yugo in a NASCAR cup. Long range CAP fatigued the pilots really fast, so Ive been using CAP range 1 for the last week of game time, far better results. Any advice or threads on CAP would be cool.

Today in the CenPac the Kido Butai retired directly towards Truk. She has plenty of sorties left, I guess she is performing more escort into theatre. Two subs are waiting with a third trying to rendevous. In 72hours I should have SubDiv I and III in place. Its about to get real gritty in Burma, I'm looking at two large crack Jap Divisions with support against a hodge podge of Bn's and a brigade. The next day may have prove "map" posting worthy as I will be craving ground help.
