In my PBEM game the Omaha's have been incredibly useful... Just ask Paul! They are great for convoy duty, but don't forget that early on the Allies have very few good cruisers over in the DEI, and the Omahas help out there too in a firefight! Hal

Japanese Damage Control SOMETIMES works. I had CVL Ryujo take a pair of TTs and managed to get it into Lunga (91 Flot), do emergency repairs, and then every so slowly get her to Soerabaja for long-term repairs. Had to constantly watch her and keep an AR right next to the ship as it moved (2 hexes a day) along the north coast of New Guinea and then to the Malay Barrier. I promoted the Captain to Admiral and the Damage Control Officer jumped two ranks to Captain and is right now, as we speak, writing the NEW Japanese Damage Control Manual!

I did not think AR ships worked outside being disbanded in port - please correct me.

I'm with you; thought they had to be in a port to do repairs on a ship. The only repairs that can be made to a ship at sea is what the crew itself can accomplish.

Did the Damage Control Officer try to put out the fires by flooding the ship?


From the way its reported, seems more like they were trying to dowse the flames with the ships AV Gas.

Yes, but if you send it with the damaged ship, if you have to do another emergency repair, you have the AR readily available. I understand why he did that.

If that's the case, its more likely they were too busy poking each other in the eyes to spray anything at the fire.
