Good points BB. I was hoping to get that CL in amongst the slower APD's but alas, it didn't go that way. I'm going to start sending PT boats after the ships buzzing around FukueJima. AFTER ACTION REPORTS FOR Sep 13, 45  Submarine attack near Saishu To at 100,56 Japanese Ships SS HaD144 Allied Ships DD Marshall DD Marshall is sighted by SS HaD144 SS HaD144 launches 2 torpedoes at DD Marshall  Night Time Surface Combat, near Hirosaki/Aomori at 118,52, Range 8,000 Yards Japanese Ships PB Chohakusan Maru, Shell hits 3 PB Kantori Maru, Shell hits 7, on fire PB Kure Maru #5, Shell hits 6 Allied Ships PF Coronado, Shell hits 3 PF Eugene Maximum visibility in Partly Cloudy Conditions and 46% moonlight: 8,000 yards Range closes to 24,000 yards...

So this PB/SC tf has been guarding the straights between Honshu and Hokkaido – on the *west* side of the straights. After the IJN CV sightings of a couple days ago, my Fast Raider TF’s were in place. Well I decided to send a “slow” Fast Raider fleet to see if they could deal with this menace to my subs, and also flush out whatever Cruft had in Hokkaido. Looks like the engagement turned out better for me, than him. Kinda happy about that, never played to the point where I had these PF ships, didn’t really know their capabilities. I figured they were better than PB/PC/SC’s, but not as good as DE’s or DD’s.  Night Air attack on TF, near Orchid Island at 87,68 Weather in hex: Overcast Raid spotted at 11 NM, estimated altitude 18,000 feet.

No doubt to try and night attack my “big bad Japan invasion force”. I’ll have to remember this.

Group patrol altitude is 20000 , scrambling fighters between 8000 and 20000. Time for all group planes to reach interception is 50 minutes So my B29’s failed to fly the last two days in the daytime. So I’ll send them in at night on a firebombing attack. I plan on firebombing Osaka for the next 34 days in a row. The next attack will probably be split between day and night, and will have about ½3/4’s of the planes, cuz I only had my b29s on 10% rest. I’m going to up that to 3040% across the board to keep em flying daily over the next few days. Everything will be a city attack to see what kind of fires I can generate. Anyhow – this day’s events was very uncoordinated, as the next 10 combats will show. PS – this is the way the devs can deal with the “massive 2k plane strike”, increase the coordination penalties so strikes come in all split up.
