I would agree with that.

Every time he says that, I am waiting to see an entire Japanese invasion fleet at the bottom of the ocean. However, it usually is 1-2 Jap bombers lost.

I am NOT complaining. I just think it is kinda funny.

Were any of those files I e-mail over work well enough? I think the .jpg file is the best fit. Feel free to forward the files to anyone .

I am going to try to use the JPG to draw on with ArcGIS, but it will be Monday before I can get to it. It will be helpful in communicating with Harvey and Jeff on plans if I can graphically send them plans and then they can also draw on them. We can collaborate better that way.

It does give one a chuckle. Then no news is good news. And he's on the plus side of that.

Into February we go...

Not much going on. Loyang is in danger of being cut off from Sian, but we have forces moving from Loyang into the hex just to the west along with the large (nearly 250 AV) Corp there already. Also the 27 aircraft AVG with P40Es is set to LRCAP this hex in anticipation of large number of targets showing up here as is the normal Japanese practice.

Yorktown has met up with the Saratoga, Lexington, and Enterprise in SOPAC. We need to think about shifting around some escorts to even things out. Two S boats were moved to Gasmata to maybe pick up some transports there. Or even a capital ship! One of the blocking subs near Milne Bay moved to the gap near Lae to cover that exit.

Logistical stuff moving around as it should. Won't bore everyone with the details.

Notes for 2 Feb 42
Dominion Monarch is due for withdrawal. She is in TF115 enroute to the map from off map due in 8 days. We need to make note that she needs to detach and get to a port ASAP. We are losing 20 PP a day from her not withdrawing.

There is one more ship due this month, the AP Joseph T. Dickmam at Cape Town on the 24th. She should not be sent on any mission lasting more than three weeks to make sure we don’t get penalized for her also.

The one after that is the xAP Queen Elizabeth. That is in April. We haven’t needed that much lift in one ship for troops yet, so, she is sitting at San Francisco.

Checked usual stuff on CS convoys, all working.

Turned off all HI in Australia.

Moved two xAKs, one into the fleet waiting, one from Cristobal to Balboa in the Canal Zone.

Loading up units for Bora Bora then on to Sydney.

90k supply speed 12 convoy leaving LA for Sydney.

More ships due at LA in 2 days from the Canal Zone. This will finish up a speed 14 supply convoy which will leave when loaded. Should be another 90k in supply.

AVG 1st Sqn set to LRCAP Loyang. 2nd Sqn still waiting on replacements at Chungking. No other changes in China.

3 FEB 42 Notes

CONUS:

TF299 is just outside of San Diego, separating DD O’Brian from it and sending it back to the Canal Zone for more escort duties.

The DD Walke is three days out from the Canal Zone and will join the TF forming there that has currently 14 ships in it and should have the CL Nashville, and 2 more transports arriving by then. This will then go to LA. The Nashville will wait on the Hornets arrival from Eastern USA.

NOPAC:

We continue to move supplies and fuel to the various locations here. There is concern about the build up at Attu. There are now six enemy units there according to our recon flights out of Dutch. I am thinking that we need to get “boots on the ground” in Adak before the Japanese, so we don’t have to take it from them with the horrible conditions that exist in this region.

SOPAC:

Logistics continue to move as planned through this area.

We may want to consider moving Lark BN to the dot base on the North coast of New Britain. Yes, this will take a month and a half to get there, but once they do they will be able to be airlifted out. As it is right now, they are doing nothing but rotting in the jungle. It will also give the Japanese something to worry about.

I am also proposing that we move one of the S-Boats at Gasmata to a port on the coast of Australia and load it with mines and put some at Lae/Milne Bay/Gasmata or thereabouts. This is not intended to really inflict damage on the enemy physically, but to get them second guessing as to where the next minefield is going to appear.

China:

The encirclement of Loyang is still being setup, will we be able to break out? Don’t know for sure. We will see how it goes. The AVG showed up again and will continue to keep the IJA on their toes.

Updated file posted to dropbox.

I think it's cute how you try to convince us that you have a life outside of WiTP-AE.

The 2xBB loss to mines is from 1/22/42. It will be interesting to see if it stays on the report list in tracker. With FOW it could be anything including nothing at all. The report is two Kongo's, so even better.

It is possible that they could downgrade to CA's, CL's and/or lower combination. I've seen that happen. Either way, I think you got a couple of keepers.

Task Force Z will be fully mission capable before the end of Feb. Two fewer Japanese fast BBs is real good news for the Burma-India theater.......

Another boring day = good day for the allies!

Units in the open in China are dying, but they are going to be surrounded in Loyang anyways. Gets them back in the que quicker!

Hornet is 6 days from the canal zone, CL Nashville, and a Sims class DD will be there to escort her to her destination. Where do we want to send her? She is going to need other escorts than one CL and DD!

Coastal CD unit from Seattle heading to Dutch to bolster the defenses there. Fuel and supplies are moving slowly but consistantly into the NOPAC area of operations and will be of good amount in storage there when we need it.

Jeff, Harvey was right. TF179 is going to have a problem unloading at PM. Need to reroute it to Townsville to unload there and then change to amphibious to take the BF to PM. Drat... Rookie mistake. Sorry. The CVs need to stop following it and return to the Coral Sea around hex 104,144 to wait on this to be completed.

We have intercepted some transmissions from a fragment (signifying it is already on a ship) of the 4th Division indicating their next target is Noumea. We have the Americal Division arriving there shortly and that should help bolster the defenses there.

The carriers have moved that way to be half way between Port Moresby and Noumea to be able to respond either direction.

Otherwise, mostly quiet, nothing major going on. Our subs are getting either signings, ASW attacks on them or Duds. Lots of activity there.

8 FEB 42 report:

CONUS:

20th PB/79th PS withdrawn – Pilots stripped beforehand

SS Greenling sent to Cristobal, LCDR Bruton has sufficient Naval/Aggressive skills for a sub captain and is not replaced.

xAK Admiral Day moved from Cristobal to Balboa

SS Grampus at Balboa sent to Pearl Harbor, LCDR Hutchinson does not have sufficient Aggressiveness (34) for sub patrols. LCDr Ferrall (Nav72/Aggress72) put in command for 3 PPs.

TF91 Cargo with 92670 supply sent to Sydney from LA. Set on a more northerly route near Palmyra as there appears to be no Japanese activity in this area. It will shorten the route a little.

8th PB/35th PS sent to San Francisco from Eastern USA for deployment to Australia. Pilots maxed, Escort training at 100, range 0

3rd BG has assembled at San Francisco and will be shipping out as soon as I can assemble a sufficient convoy of two ships for each Squadron and an escort for Sydney.

Downgraded VP-43 at San Diego to PBY-5As to put some better PBY-5s in service for deploying where the range will matter. This will also give better ASW coverage in the SOCAL area. Win-Win, I say! :D

PEARL HARBOR:

xAP Rochambeau put into the shipyard for a week of repairs after her trip from the Philippines.

Sub Finback was just sitting at 189,107. Moved her to PH for refuel and new patrol area closer to the action.

BBs California and Tennessee are one day out of PH for their refits.

NOPAC:

No changes

SOPAC:

TF179 at Townsville is still unloading supplies, should be done on 9 FEB and ready to load back up as an amphib TF to move 114th BF to PM. It has been set to have PM as its objective.

Going to send 10k supplies to Noumea from Pago Pago with an AGP to setup a PT base there. The fleet will have the “PT Boats” in the cargo and assemble them in Noumea. This is splitting off 4x3200 cargo ships from TF392 on its way back to LA. Four days from Pago Pago. It can then pick up 12,200 supplies and the AGP and go 11 days back to Noumea to establish a PT presence at Noumea. We might have to setup PT squadrons at Koumac and La Foa also, but will see how things go.
TF277 is taking 1750 supply to Luganville from Pago Pago.

CHINA:

8th New Chinese Corps is planning for Ankang and moving to Kienko from Chungking, then on to Ankang for a blocking action expected at Ankang.

Started expanding Sian’s Airfield to level 2 to better handle the AVG aircraft. There is now V60 at Sian.

9 FEB 42:

CENPAC:

DD Perkins is sent back to Tahiti to prepare to bring another two BBs back to Pearl in a month or so as the California and Tennessee are finishing their refits or if we determine the threat level is such that we can bring more back quicker.

At Midway transferred the xAK SiKiang to the once Tanker now Cargo TF there unloading for the return trip to PH where she can be repaired.

CONUS/PANAMA:

Need Destination for 175th USAAF BF, 2nd USMC FA, and 428th Cst AA at San Fran.

APD Little and an xAK moved from Christobal to Balboa for inclusion into a TF bound for LA.

SOPAC/NOPAC:

Nothing going on here for logistics that isn't already in place.

CHINA:

Moving the 18th Group Army from Yenan to Sian. This will take some time, but it should help with the defenses. Does not appear the Japanese are moving in the North China areas, yet…

A dozen or more “new” units for the Chinese in the next 30 days. These will deploy to the areas of concentration of the Japanese, which is mostly towards Sian, right now. May send some towards Ichang to maybe tip the balance there.
The 350 squad replacements per month are being used as fast as they are arriving.

Both AVG squadrons are fairly low in fatigue (<25) and high in morale (>70), all their aircraft are fully serviced and ready to go, just waiting on the Japanese to attack! They didn’t the last turn. Both are racking up kills 11/20, and I think the Japanese are rethinking what they are doing. Which is what we want! :D

This should not be done right now as there is what appears to be a SCTF rounding Horn Is. in an eastward direction. We should see what happens with it, first. Maybe move the carriers towards it, but keeping them more than fourteen hexes from Rabaul.
