From: Somewhere in the South Pacific.
7 December 1941
Well I've been a very bad boy, as I've sneaked-up on Pearl Harbor, and attacked his great base there. As for the results I've seen better, but Battleship row did get a good working over. But with no Battleship's sinking, and an ineffectual attack on the airfield, which appears not to have been attacked. I will have to decide weather to strike at Pearl Harbor again, with the risk of taking heavy airframe/aircrew losses doing so.
Meanwhile all the other airfield strikes across the map, went well with good loss ratios for me. I will just keep up the pressure against his airfields for the next turn, as I ultimately want air superiority over both Luzon and Malaya. The landings in both these areas will be by the book, and the landing convoys well protected. As I know Q-ball will be very aggressive here, and will try to disrupt my operations.
So I will now wait for Q-Ball to do his big turn, because I know he has been scheming, as he has had the combat replay for two days. So I know that I am probably facing the standard Allied attacks, and maybe a few more special ones he has come up with.
