No intel on carriers.
I send bombers with escorts to bomb the stack just south. Heavy Jap CAP is present. We lose 20 B 25's, 19 Wellingtons, 16 Beaufighters. 1 group of P38s sweep after the Bombers get crushed. They do exact some revenge. 10 Tojo IIc's, 8 IIa's, 5 A6m5, 3 Oscars are shot down for 2 P38s. I am able to replace the loses. But I will start sweeping more. If he wants to LRCAP I will sweep him to death. I will have some Corsairs in theater soon.
We night bomb the AF and score 1 Tojo IIc's, 2 IIa's, and an Oscar. It looks like low level night bombing might just work. I will have to try more of this.
Points just jumped up 41 points. Hmm did CA Aoba just sink. She is worth 41 points, I checked it out.
Koniu wrote in a email. That we are playing a cat and mouse game. Just he didn't know who was which. So he is up to something. Thats fine, So am I.
I figure 2 days and my surprise will be up. I am prepareing a briefing for all my Air, Naval, Ground, and Sub commanders. Are any of you present for maps of the operations?
