Hey guys thanks for the encouragement. I had to step away from the game last nite. Still not for sure why my escorts didn't fly. I looked at one of the groups and it had a sucky leader. I did count 11 Jap CVs though. With all the planes shot down I am getting reports that he has more planes now than I had before the fight, so Koniu set up a good ambush. I feel like such a failure. 24th May Carriers in the Gilberts Gilberts We lose the Enterprise, North Carolina with 4 DDs. As you can see from above we will lose Yorktown and maybe a few other ships. I'm am thinking of sending some of the damaged ships at the KB so the rest can flee. I am also thinking of sending some DDs towards the KB in a possible nite attack. My transports didn't get attacked because they still hadn't met up with my CVs. For some reason they only went 3 hexs from the day before. I had 48 fighers on LRCAP with them. They could of helped out the CVs if I would of left them on CAP. I also lost 12 B24Ds while attacking Tabiteuea's AF. KB is 5 hexs away, so not for sure if I can escape. China Koniu attacked Chungking with Helens and lost 34 of them. Ramree Island We sweep and take down 12 Tojos for no loses. I damage a sub off of Cooktown and he damages one of ours off the HI. I will post combat report below. Morning Air attack on TF, near Nanumea at 138,140 Weather in hex: Light rain Raid detected at 40 NM, estimated altitude 6,000 feet.
