BTW, Mike... I changed the topic headers so our opponents won't pick up on anything if this is the last posted AAR from the main screen..

Something to think about for the future as counter-espionage. Post a false subject line.

It is going to take a couple of days to rotate the BBs anyways, and, now, we have more escorts for them and DD's for Harvey to use!

Very true. The upside to losing CVs is freeing up 8-10 DDs per sinking.

5 APR 42

CONUS:

Four APDs are finished converting at Seattle, they are sent to San Francisco for use there and to send to Pago Pago to help move troops around.

VMD-1 arrives at San Diego, standard training regimen applied.

CANAL ZONE:

SS Growler arrives at Balboa, sent to Midway for patrol assignment. Current captain is sufficiently aggressive and naval skilled to keep in command.

NOPAC:

Nothing to do here.

CENTPAC:

We will be using more PTs in the future and they won’t be needed at Pearl. Returned them to the PT pool.

Two APDs are finished converting at Pearl, they are sent to Pago Pago for use there.

SOPAC

Hornet group was not set to follow ASW TF. Fixed that and had the ASW TF remain on station.

Refueled PTs from the xAK dropping supplies at PM. They are now full and ready for any infiltrators! <evil grin>

With a Japanese CV just north of Lunga, the AG destined for Ndeni is returning to Noumea for now.

Same with TFs at Luganville and Efate. The Luganville TFs are going to Noumea to wait on things to clear. The one at Efate only had 80 or so supply on it. It is just going back to Pago Pago to get more troops.

AVP and AVD for Rossel Island is sent in a round-about path to get there to set up another seaplane base.

VP-42 takes two Aircraft frames and two patrol pilots as replacements. Also, shifted their patrol area 60 degrees clockwise to cover the gap that the more forward patrol aircraft are covering in case the CV in the SE solomans goes further south or east.

ANZAC:

DD Mustin finishes upgrade, Harvey, this one is yours.

CHINA:

Nothing to do here.

RUSSIA:

Nothing to do here.

6 APR 42 results have KXVIII putting three fish into a Fuso class BB with heavy damage and fire reported near Kendari. CA Vincennes which was damaged in our last CV battle, was going to Melboune for repairs and had a torp put into her, her flot went up to 59 with significant systems damage, but her engines still produce 2/1 movement and she is three hexes from Sydney. Kept her on Mission speed as there are subs about, hopefully she will make port without becoming an artificial reef just off of Sydney. Giving Harvey a chance to change if he see fit when he processes his part.

Prepping the independent rgt at Kodiak for Adak Island, as the Japanese are doing the same. Should have it on Adak within a week with some BB support from San Francisco at Dutch. Will see what happens!

The game shows the Fuso as sunk, that is four BBs (two are Kongos), and 3-5 KB carriers. Beginning to feel pretty good about this. Going to be a long war, as things are delayed quite a bit into 1943...

I was thinking about what we had out on the open seas going from place to place and wanted to quantify what I am moving around. This is what I came up with:



It is sorted by estimated arrival date. That date can fluctuate a little depending on refuel times for escorts or at waypoints. It does give a pretty good idea on when a TF is expected.

A couple of things to note:

1. The 7th Marine is scheduled to land at Lunga in four days. Do we want to keep that timeline or just send them back to Pago Pago and wait? Now is the time to determine that.
2. The 201st (Sep) Inf Rgt is scheduled to land at Adak Island in a week. The SCTF from San Francisco will have caught up with them by then and they should be well escorted. a
3. There is no fuel heading to Sydney at this time. There is nearly 200k of fuel lift heading back to LA for more and should have it back to Sydney within 14 days. This will be more fuel in Sydney in 30-40 days. It looks like there is a lot of fuel in ANZAC at this time, but I want to be conservative on our estimates and keep the fuel flowing!

Nevada and Perth have each taken a torpedo in the last couple of days on their daily bombardment runs on Horn Isl and Port Moresby.

Hornet is currently south of PM as our only operational USN CV in the SoPac at the moment. Harvey has RN CVs operational elsewhere.

Lunga operation has been postponed now that enemy carriers are showing up with capital ships in the area. We have also postponed the Adak operation as enemy carriers are lurking in the area according to reports.

Enterprise should be ready to go soon, giving us two fleet CVs in SoPac.

Currently covering the bombardment groups harrassing Port Moresby and Horn Isl every other day. Horn Isl's AF appears to be back open while Bunas has been shut down by Harvey's AF. Harvey has been sinking some shipping in the Coral Sea area with his Banshees based out of Port Moresby.

Continuing to build up Louganville and Ndeni for strengthing our supply lines and areas to base our major operations out of the area.

Other than that, it has been fairly quiet..and summer months are slow for turns.

Here is the damage to Nevada 26 of the FLT is major, and 11 of the Eng is major. She can fit in the yard at Sidney once the Enterprise is done in two weeks, and the Vincennes there can head to Brisbane once she's done with pierside so they can both fit.

She will live to fight another day. She's been great help in the area.

April 16, 1042

Enemy invasion force by Stewart Island. Likely headed for Louganville area or Ndeni.

Don't really have anything in the area to counter this with. A DD group led by an Omaha class CL is north of Suva. Too many big ships and air present, and Louganville and Ndeni don't have AFs yet.

I'll post the combat replay when I get home.. internet is awful at work today for some reason.

From Mike

We see British carrier air do serious damage to an invasion at Ramee Island (Great positioning Harvey!)



But, we see Nells do damage to British BBs. A multiple hits by torps on the Royal Sovereign and Revenge... Ouch!



The Oklahoma/Arizona bombardment TF plasters Horn Island.



Looks like a supply convoy is going to try to get past Horn Island.



Lots of dud torpedoes. I, for one, will be glad when the tech guys get that worked out... :(



P40s take it in the chin at PM. Lots of zeros around now.



SigInt of Note:



80th Infantry Regiment is located at Adak Island(162,52) (Good to know, will need a prolonged operation to dislodge these guys.)

5th Ind. Engineer Regiment is located at Adak Island(162,52) (ibid)

15th Army is planning for an attack on Katha. (This may not be a surprise, but good to know.)

Very very bloody turn.

Big naval engagement in the near Ramree Island for Harvey. He's been very active over there.

The CVs we spotted SE of Solomons appear off of Cooktown and sink Horney and more than likely her big escorts (1CL, 2CAs)...we did put 9 1000lbers in the Shoho and Ryujo, though. I would like to think that is major damage, but air strikes continued to come from that hex later in the turn. Could mean more CVLs that never showed up in the combat report. HOW these ships disappeared from our air searches last turn is beyond me..we have ever inch of that area covered with overlapping searches.

Revenge and Royal Sovereign are sunk by LBA near Cox's Bazar by Nells. Figured this was coming as they were hurting bad. 98 float dmg and high 80s for each one. Harvey had up LRCAP, but they Japanese just powered through.

Win some, lose some.

Harvey has decent naval forces in his theatre...we're down to CAs and slow BBs in the South Pacific. Zero operational fleet CVs for 12 more days. It will be a good time to pull back naval forces and upgrade a lot of ships that are out and about. A good chunk are coming out of the shipyard with their upgrades, so it's a good time to switch. The Northamptons have done their refit and will be good ships to handle lighter Japanese naval threats in the area. Australia and Canberra are headed to Louganville to have naval forces in that area.

Harvey, I could use a couple of fighter squadrons that you may have extra of in Aus. Need some CAP in Louganville. I could probably use the Hornets airwings that went to Port Moresby depending on their condidtion.

Anyway...bloody turn.

For those that follow, all of our CV vs CV battles have been in almost the exact same spot. That area now has numerous CVs sunk between Port Moresby and mainland Aus.

Yes sir. We have the county fair this week and weekend, but I will put together some information on naval assets in the area and what needs to be upgraded.

I really need to re-install tracker.

Ouchie!
He definitely has more carriers out there - possibly CVs in another TF because of speed difference vs. the CVLs.

Did the Val raid on your TF near Palm Island come from the same carriers? He will likely go after that juicy target next.

Correct. We think it was 2 CVLs and 1 CV.

105 AC in the intial strike and 26 Zeros on CAP when we struck...so 131 AC so far..

The last two raids in that area came from the enemy carrier hex, but not near as many. More than likely they just have the CV left. That would mean they have lost 4/5 CVs and 2 CVLs to date if my memory is correct...all in the same area. We have lost Hornet, Yorktown, Saratoga, and Lexington. Enterprise was hit pretty good a month and a half ago and is about 12 days from being 100% in Sydney and she underwent upgrade during this time, so it worked out ok.

That will put one operational CV in Southern Pacific until Wasp arrives. Harvey has 2/3 I believe in Indian Ocean. Had a nice strike on the invasion force at Ramree Isl last turn.

And those British CV's will be withdrawn soon and won't be back until `44.

Analysis of Japanese Carriers in Scenario 2 up to this date (17 APR 42)



The main raid and cap over the carriers when our strike went in had 43 TB, 22 DB, and 66 F for 131 aircraft.

If Hiryu, Shoho, and Ryujo were involved that would be 132 aircraft capacity (not counting the +10%)

If Ryujo, Zuiho, and Shoho were involved that would be 108 aircraft capacity (118 at 10% over)

If Zuikaku, Shoho, and Ryujo were involved that would be 150 aircraft capacity (165 at 10% over)

My guess is the first option. Remember, the Hiryu can't change its air groups until late July. The Ryujo and Shoho are much more flexible.

Also, they have expended 43 torpedoes in two attacks. If the first option they have 29 left. The question is how many were sunk/rendered unusable by damaged carriers?

We are pretty sure the listed sunk carriers are truly that as Japanese Damage Control sucks (from personal experience). Pretty sure the Zuikaku was damaged enough to be out of the war for six months or more. This does leave the Hiryu, Ryujo, Zuiho, and Shoho active. Junyo may be active if it was accelerated sufficiently. Hiyo is probably not even if accelerated.

Ryujo and Shoho are combat ineffective, either sunk or damaged sufficiently to not be able to conduct air ops. Most of the 1000 pound bomb hits were critical hits, and I am leaning towards both being sunk or soon sinking.

This leaves the IJN with the Hiryu, Shoho, and possibly the Junyo. This is 146 capacity. We currently have 98 capacity of RN (another 33 in one more day) and 90 capacity of USN (another 76 in forty days). Our biggest issue is aircraft. May 1943 is still over a year away...

We must be careful.

Jeff,

Take the Hornet air wings and there is at least a p-39 squadron, maybe 2, that you can have immediately. I have a P-40B sqn that will be ready in a few turns once the Japanese vacate the Coral Sea.

Just tell me where you want them for transport.

The P-38Es need a high level to operate effectively and am recovering from overusing them at PM right now. I need them in NG/N Aus for now.

That would be fine. Thanks. We can also move around the B17s to shut down airfields in the Solomons and NG as we build up airfields. Eventually I see us basing everything out of Port Moresby when it is maxed and free of enemy troops.

I did send an email to Hartwig giving him a hard time that every time we have a CV battle it is in the same area and stop hunting our CVs...he mentioned that he just wanted to take the pressure off of his men at Port Moresby who are in terrible shape from the daily BB bombardments.

Not sure if it was just talk or if they are in fact in bad shape..

And the Japanese at PM are going to be in more bad shape after this unit moves into hex 92,130, just east of PM and then back to PM, shutting what little supply they are getting from Buna.

Unit:



Hexside details at PM:



The artillery duel is an even match, but we have supply and they do not have much along with the BB bombardments. More BBs are on the way, too...
