Incredible. Any ideas what he wanted that close to Japan ?

Do you know where the Enterprise and Hornet is ?

What is the context of this?  I assume this is a PBEM?  What was the Allied player up to?  Did you know he was coming, or was that just a typical Homeland Defense force for you?  I wanna know more!

P.S.  Congrats!

Yee gads! Nice shootin', Tex. Very risky move on your opponent's part to so disdain the HI air defenses.

I'm impressed with the apparent IJAAF and IJNAF coordination. Tojo IIas escorting D3A1s in quantity? How'd you manage that mini-coordination coup?

He has sent raids south of Iwo Jima before and got a small convoy in months past. I saw him the turn before at 13 hexes and thought he would turn around. I moved my training air groups to the bases around Tokyo. However, I forgot to increase torpedo for the Air HQ to above 100, so I ran out during the turn. Now, all Air HQs have 150 torpedoes.

Japan has enough air assets to keep all but a max Allied air attack at bay. He sent 3 of 5 CVs to the area. I had 4 BFs, 2 Ind Eng, and an Air HQ loading at Tokyo, but left them on the transports as expensive bait.

Our game has been very slow pace in A2A action from others I've seen, but India/Burma is slowly heating up. So to answer your question CR, I don't known what his reason was for this and the cost/benefit analysis would make the cost too high for me.

The air coordination may come from almost all air units assigned to various Restricted commands in Japan. I will look closely at the next turn to see if there is more.

Update - turn back and he didn't write anything.... However, CV Wasp moved only one hex and Vals got ono more bomb hit to put her under and two torpedo hits from Kates into CA Louisville to sink her. In the PM Phase, CV Yorktown is NOT targeted (plus too much damage to allow any CAP to be flown). Ms Nell and Ms Betty went after the other shiny toy, BB Prince of Wales, and put 7 torpedo hits in her.

Let's say that THIS was not "economy of forces" for Allies...

63 F4F-4 CAP vs. mainland Japan...

Must be the shock. I know that feeling VERY good. But what did he expect ?

Is it possible it was a reaction move of the CV TFs to get the convoy in Tokyo ?

Why in what is holy would a player enter a hornet's nest without protection? Without air control Japan is one big UNSINKABLE CV.... why go near it at all?

Looks like the allied player wants to end the game early...

My reaction to this is almost exactly the same as Joe Johnston's when he heard about Fredericksburg: "What luck some people have. Nobody will ever come to attack me in such a place."
