BIG NEWS TODAY

Sumatra

The 1st Yokosuka SNLF and the 1st Raiding Rgt were paradropped from Alor Star and Georgetown onto Padang. The 1st and 6th Tank Rgts participated as well. Two allied units were destroyed and the third retreated toward Pakanbaroe. The tank regiments will follow.

The 1st Raiding Rgt will be transported back to Georgetown. From there it will be used to take Sabang and Langsa (which are unoccupied).

The 1st Yokosuka SNLF will stay at Padang and will be used to take the islands of the S/W coast of Sumatra.

The battalions of the 124th Rgt continue on their way to Medan and Sibolga.

Borneo

The I/81st NG detachment is loading onto transports at Kudat. It will head to Pakhoi as I am getting sick of hearing about coastwatchers seeing ships in Pakhoi harbor!

The Oil and Refineries at Miri continue repairing.

Tandjoengselor (right next to Tarakan) fell to the row boat corps. Considering that Tarakan is still in allied hands, I am a bit puzzled. I am assuming this means Tarakan’s supply situation must be very dire. Is this a safe assumption?

KB

Still located two hexes W of Sampit – waiting for the amphibious TF carrying the 14th Division to arrive in the Java Sea. Once it does, it will be escorted to Cheribon or Kalidjati.

Burma

The 55th Eng has almost been completely airlifted from Rahaeng to Pegu. The 55th Cav Rgt is being transported along with the engineers.

The Oscars out of Moulmein found nothing to hunt at Toungoo again. I think I will stop burning aviation fuel.

A minesweeping TF swept some mines from Rangoon.

Malaya

Here’s the big news – supported by Sallys and Anns from Johore Bharu, Sallys from Kuantan and Bettys from Singkawang, the 5th, 18th and Imperial Guards Divisions captured Singapore. This took me completely by surprise (in a good way of course). I had thought there’d be some opposition, but it looks like Bill must have airlifted just about every meaningful infantry unit out of there. Here’s the combat report:

This unexpected good news has left me a dilemma – what do I do with the 25th Army now? I hadn’t given it any serious consideration yet as I thought I’d be trying to take the place for another 2 or 3 weeks. I’m leaning toward sending them to Java.

Java

One of the 30-plane Zero squadrons based at Kalidjati swept Soerabaja and again found good hunting. For no loss, they shot down 1 H81-A3, 1 B-339D and 2 75A-7 Hawks.

I think the fighter opposition over Soerabaja has been reduced enough to make it worth taking a shot at the airfield with some Netties. Next turn, I’ll send about 60 Nells from Kalidjati and have them escorted by one of the 30-plane Zero squadrons there.

The 121st Mixed Bde and the 91st NG performed a deliberate attack at Bandoeng. I was expecting to take the base handily (50:1 odds kind of thing) as the only allied units there were some rear area troops – the ABDA HQ and the Andir ML Base Force. Boy was I wrong! I only got 2:1 odds. I know the terrain is mountainous, but an HQ and a base force holding off a full Bde and an NG?

Philippines

For some reason, the Tanaka and Kano detachments and the 48th Recon Rgt did not attack the 41st PA Division at Subic Bay. They’re still set to “deliberate attack”, so I don’t know what’s up.

The 1st Sasebo SNLF Coy performed another deliberate attack against the former Zamboanga garrison. The 10:1 odds resulted in no casualties for either side.

The Nells at Cagayan didn’t fly today due to weather.

Bettys from Takao and Sallys, Anns and Sonias performed a ground attack at Bataan, causing about 300 casualties. More importantly, the AA intensity was pretty weak. I’m hoping this means Bataan is running low on supply. I may drop the altitude of my bombers down a bit if this continues.

Some Jakes from Manila attacked some PTs at Bataan for no effect. I have several cargo TFs unloading at Batangas, so I’d really like to take some of these pests out if I can to keep those merchants safe.

Celebes/Timor

The two amphibious TFs carrying the detachments from the 8th JAAF Coy are at Alor. I think I’ll send them off to take Roti next.

The Zero squadrons at Makassar are resting. Next turn, they will escort some Netties on a strike against Soerabaja’s airfield.

South Pacific

Buka fell to a detachment from the 84th NG.

Subs

Nothing to report.

B-17s

Four B-17s showed up over Koepang again and scored two hits on the airfield. Seven more hit an infantry brigade in NW China.

Jan 21st 1942

Sumatra


The 6th Tank Rgt caught up with the former Padang garrison one hex to the NE. It will perform a deliberate attack tomorrow.

Change of plans with the paratroopers that took Padang. They are being airlifted back to Georgetown and Alor Star. From there, they will move by rail to Singapore and will move by sea to Singkawang. From there, they will be paradropped onto Banjermasin, and from there, they will be used to support operations in Java. The 2nd Raiding Rgt is loaded onto ships at Nagasaki and will be moved to Rangoon to participate in my advance into central Burma.

The battalions of the 124th Rgt continue plodding to Medan and Sibolga.

A cargo TF off Tandjoengbalai bumped into another MMS. Both sides evaded combat.

Borneo

The I/81st NG detachment is on its way to Pakhoi from Kudat.

The Oil and Refineries at Miri continue repairing. More cargo TFs are on the way to ensure a constant inflow of supply.

The fall of Tandjoengselor (right next to Tarakan) last turn has me seriously considering taking the bases in E Borneo. Supply there must be really bad if the row boat corps captured a location next to a major allied base with three LCUs present. Elements of the 16th and 48th Divisions are recuperating in Manila. I’ll move them to Batangas and load them onto transports once they’ve recovered.

KB

Still located two hexes W of Sampit – waiting for the amphibious TF carrying the 14th Division. There are a couple allied TFs at Soerabaja and Tjilatjap. Maybe I’ll set some of the Kates to Naval Attack and see what they can find. I don’t want to use the Vals as that will give away KBs position (the Kates could have been from the CVLs and/or CVEs for all Bill knows).

Burma

The 55th Eng has one more day until it is completely airlifted from Rahaeng to Pegu. The 55th Cav Rgt is all there already.

No Oscar sweeps out of Moulmein. It’s clear Bill is doing the ultimate Sir Robin. All of the bases in central Burma look unoccupied. All I can think of is he is pulling back to Lashio and is looking to make a stand where the terrain is to his advantage, or he is going to head all the way back to India.

The minesweepers at Rangoon continued their work

Malaya

All troops from Johore Bharu are heading to the newly liberated city of Singapore. From there, they will be shipped out to support the capture of Java. From there, I’m thinking N Oz.

Java

One of the 30-plane Zero squadrons based at Kalidjati swept Soerabaja but only found two H81-A3s. No aircraft were shot down, but both allied fighters aborted due to damage. After the sweep, 59 Nells escorted by 29 Zeros hit the airfield for 56 hits. The supply dump was also damaged, taking 9 hits. Aircraft hit on the ground included B-17Ds (6 damaged), CW-22 Falcons (1 destroyed, 2 damaged), CW-21Bs (1 destroyed, 1 damaged) and 139WH-3s (1 destroyed, 3 damaged). I’ll repeat tomorrow.

The 121st Mixed Bde and the 91st NG performed another deliberate attack at Bandoeng. This time, I got 5:1 odds and sent the ABDA HQ and the Andir ML Base Force retreating toward Tjilatjap. I’ll send the 121st Mixed Bde in pursuit and leave the 91st NG there for garrison duty until I can get some JAAF Bns there to do double duty – garrison and aviation support for some Anns and Sonias I no longer need in Malaya.

Philippines

Again, the Tanaka and Kano detachments and the 48th Recon Rgt did not attack the 41st PA Division at Subic Bay. They are set to deliberate attack and have adequate supply. I don’t understand why they are not attacking.

The 1st Sasebo SNLF Coy performed another deliberate attack against the former Zamboanga garrison. The 6:1 odds resulted in 18 allied casualties.

The Nells at Cagayan didn’t fly again today due to weather. I’m getting lots of groundings due to weather and the trend seems to be more and more each turn. Is this the dreaded “advanced weather” bug?

Bettys from Takao and Sallys, Anns and Sonias hit the airfield at Bataan for 60 hits on the field and 5 to the supply dump. Recon shows 100% damage. More importantly, the AA intensity is getting very weak. I dropped the altitude down to 8k. Next turn, I’ll drop it down to 7k and see what happens.

Siquitjor fell to a paradrop by a detachment from the 3rd Yokosuka SNLF.

Five PBs ran into a PT TF off Lubang. For some reason, the PTs didn’t launch any torpedoes. Instead, they just sat there and let the PB gun crews get some free target practice. Two of the little bastards were “obliterated” by the PBs’ deck guns. I love that message in the combat replay that says PT so-and-so obliterated by direct hit from blah blah blah. Does anyone else find that message to be particularly gratifying?

Celebes/Timor

The two amphibious TFs carrying the detachments from the 8th JAAF Coy merged at Alor and moved to Roti. There, they unloaded without incident.

The Netties at Makassar didn’t fly due to bad weather. Hopefully, they’ll fly tomorrow.

South Pacific

Wewak fell to the 2nd Independent SNLF Coy, Russell Islands and Malang to detachments of the 84th NG, Maiana and Kuria to detacments of the 51st NG and Hollandia to the 4th Independent SNLF Coy.

The 61st NG, which recently took Naru Island, is a couple days’ sail from Efate. The 52nd NG, which took Ocean Island, should land at Luganville at about the same time the 61st lands at Efate. Neither of these TFs are escorted. I’m more interested in giving Bill the appearance of recklessness here. If they land without incident, fine. If they get hit by Bill’s carriers or a SCTF, I’ll obviously be bummed by the loss of troops, but it will give something for Bill to think about in the future. I view myself as somewhat cautious, so if I can give the impression that I’ll take risks, it might keep him guessing a bit. So, I look at this mini operation as a win-win, regardless of how it turns out.

Subs

SS I-165 put a couple torpedoes into YO-41 off Tjilatjap. I heard the “sinking beneath the waves” sound effect, so I’m pretty sure she’s done for.

A Dutch sub fired some torpedoes at DD Yugumo, which was escorting a cargo TF unloading off Kalidjati. The torpedoes missed, but so did the escorts’ depth charges.

B-17s

Three B-17s showed up over Koepang again and scored a single hit on the airfield.

Jan 22nd 1942

Sumatra


The 6th Tank Rgt attacked the Tapanoeli Garrison Bn one hex NE of Padang. The 21:1 odds caused 40 allied casualties and sent the unit retreating toward Pakanbaroe.

The II and III battalions of the 124th Rgt caught up to the former Tandjoenbalai garrison one hex SE of Medan. They will perform a deliberate attack tomorrow. The I battalion is one hex E of Sibolga.

Borneo

Not much going on besides some repair of the oil centers and refineries at Miri.

KB

I set the Kates on board the Hiryu and Soryu to naval attack. All they found was a TF off Tjilatjap with three British DDs and two HDMLs. The motor launches were sunk, but the DDs escaped unscathed. Six Buffalos were up on CAP. Four were shot down for the loss of one Zero. During the attack on the ships, one Kate was destroyed by flak.

Burma

The 55th Eng has now been completely airlifted from Rahaeng to Pegu. It will move to Rangoon to help repair the facilities there.

The two minesweepers at Rangoon were kept busy clearing mines.

The I and II battalions of the 143rd Rgt have unloaded at Pegu and are proceeding to Basein and Prome.

Malaya

Everything’s moving toward Singapore – LCUs, ships and aircraft.

Java

One of the 30-plane Zero squadrons based at Kalidjati swept Soerabaja and found nothing. The Nells based here failed to launch – bad weather over their target, the airfield at Soerabaja.

The 121st Mixed Bde is pursuing the ABDA HQ and the Andir ML Base Force which are retreating toward Tjilatjap.

Philippines

The Tanaka and Kano detachments and the 48th Recon Rgt finally attacked the 41st PA Division at Subic Bay. I don’t know why they weren’t attacking, but I’m definitely glad they finally did. The 7:1 odds netted 250 allied casualties for a loss of 42 Japanese. Maybe this is the beginning of the end here.

The 1st Sasebo SNLF Coy performed another deliberate attack against the former Zamboanga garrison. The 21:1 odds resulted in no allied casualties. What’s up with that?

The Nells at Cagayan didn’t fly AGAIN today due to weather.

Sallys, Anns and Sonias from Clark hit the airfield at Bataan for 25 hits on the field and 2 to the supply dump. Recon still shows 100% damage. I forgot to drop the altitude down to 7k to “test” the AA. This turn, I’ll fix that.

Celebes/Timor

The airfield at Makassar was expanded to level 5.

The 8th JAAF Coy took Roti unopposed.

The Netties at Makassar didn’t fly again due to bad weather. This repeated grounding of flights is really getting me miffed. If I play another PBEM, I’m going to insist on not using advanced weather effects.

South Pacific

A detachment from the 84th NG landed at Kirakira. As expected, it is unoccupied and should be ours tomorrow.

Aitape fell to the row boat corps.

Subs

SS I-165 put a couple torpedoes into YO-41 off Tjilatjap. I heard the “sinking beneath the waves” sound effect, so I’m pretty sure she’s done for.

A Dutch sub fired some torpedoes at DD Yugumo, which was escorting a cargo TF unloading off Kalidjati. The torpedoes missed, but so did the escorts’ depth charges.

B-17s

None showed up today. Hopefully Bill is having issues with this darned advanced weather bug too!

Jan 23rd 1942

Sumatra


The 6th Tank Rgt is pursuing the Tapanoeli Garrison Bn on its way to Pakanbaroe.

The II and III battalions of the 124th Rgt attacked the former Tandjoenbalai garrison one hex SE of Medan. The 69:1 odds caused 125 allied casualties for no loss as the allied units retreated to Medan. The I battalion is nineteen miles E of Sibolga.

Borneo

Still nothing to report other than the oil and refinery repair at Miri.

KB

Still lingering 4 hexes NE of Cheribon. Hiryu and Soryu had her Vals and Kates set to naval attack, but nothing was in range. It looks like some TFs off of Tjilatjap bugged out.

Burma

Toungoo fell to the row boat corps. I’m worried that they will also take Magwe. I don’t want that to happen as I have little in the way of AA and fighter assets in the theater. If Magwe switches over, Bill might be able to get a few free shots on the facilities there. I have most of the 14th Army’s AA units at Davao – not to defend against attack, but to have them positioned close to the front so they can be moved to address any allied air threats. They will head out on transports bound for Rangoon so they can be moved to Magwe on a moment’s notice.

Malaya

Everything’s still moving toward Singapore.

Java

Netties from Kalidjati and Makassar hit the airfield at Soerabaja causing extensive damage -110 hits on the airfield and 24 on the supply dump. In the process, lots of allied aircraft were destroyed and/or damaged. The list includes 3 139WH-3s destroyed (and 9 damaged), 2 CW-21B Demons destroyed (and 8 damaged), 1 CW-22 Falcon destroyed, 1 H81-A3 destroyed and 5 B-17s damaged.

Sallys from Palembang hit the port at Tjilatjap and scored a single hit on the AG Albatros. No other hits were scored, but one of the Buffalos up on CAP was shot down by the escorting Oscars.

The 14th Division is unloading at Cheribon.

The 121st Mixed Bde was pursuing the ABDA HQ and the Andir ML Base Force, but they slipped into Tjilatjap before I could catch up to them.

Philippines

The Tanaka and Kano detachments and the 48th Recon Rgt attacked the 41st PA Division at Subic Bay again. The 18:1 odds netted 175 allied casualties for the loss of 47 Japanese.

The 1st Sasebo SNLF Coy performed another deliberate attack against the former Zamboanga garrison. The 20:1 odds finally caused these guys to surrender.

The Nells at Cagayan finally flew and hit the airfield at Iloilo for 55 airfield hits and 5 supply hits.

Sallys, Anns and Sonias from Clark hit the port at Bataan for 42 hits, 16 fuel hits and 6 supply hits. I switched to the port because recon shows the airfield at Bataan is not repairing. Is this due to low supply already? No supply, no repair? The 7k altitude did not result in a significant increase in flak.

Celebes/Timor

The tanker TF arrived at Makassar and began unloading. I disbanded it to create room at the docks so I could reload the 146th Rgt, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Sasebo SNLFs and the 2nd and 8th Tank Rgts onto transports for the trip to Java. I’m thinking Semarang. We’ll see what’s there and decide later.

South Pacific

Beru, Onatoa, Kirakira and Green Island fell to elements of the 51st and 84th NGs.

The 52nd NG landed at Efate and the 61st NG landed at Luganville. Both landings went off without incident. The bases are unoccupied, so they should be in Japanese hands tomorrow.

Subs

Good hunting off of Port Moresby! SS I-171 and SS I-172 ran into an allied TF and sank three xAKs with troops aboard. All of the casualties were vehicles, so I’m thinking either a tank unit or an engineer unit was on board. SS I-171 did all the work, I-172 was more or less just a cheerleader. I-171 scored all of the hits. All I-172 did was fire a couple of torpedoes at xAK Mundalla. Even though I-171 had already put 2 torpedoes and a dozen or so 12 cm shells into the Mundalla earlier, I-172 still couldn’t hit the ship (which was probably basically dead in the water).

SS S-39 fired a couple torpedoes at an xAP unloading the 14th Division at Cheribon but missed.

B-17s

Koepang was hit by 8 B-17s for 8 airfield hits.

It is probably a lack of engineers. If you are still seeing flak, I think there are still supplies.

Good point about the lack of engineers, but don't bases repair to a small degree on their own? I know engineers greatly speed the process, but even with no engineers at all present, the base would repair at least a little bit, right?

Maybe I'm just being too hopeful here. I want the base to be running out of supplies, so I see evidence even when it may not necessarily be there. I'll keep bombing at lower and lower altitudes and see what happens.

I've been pretty busy at work lately and haven't been able to update for a while. We've played lots of turns, but I'm a bit behind with the AAR. Hopefully I can get caught up this weekend.

Jan 24th 1942

Pretty slow day.

Sumatra

The 6th Tank Rgt is still pursuing the Tapanoeli Garrison Bn on its way to Pakanbaroe.

The II and III battalions of the 124th Rgt are pursuing the Sabang base force to Medan. The I battalion is 8 miles E of Sibolga.

Sallys from Singapore hit the Sabang base force at Medan.

Borneo

Still nothing to report.

KB

Still lingering 4 hexes NE of Cheribon. Vals and Kates from Hiryu and Soryu found four British DDs off of Tjilatjap. Electra, Express and Thanet were hit by bombs from the Vals and were heavily damaged. One of the Kates put a torpedo into Scout, promptly sinking her.

Burma

The row boat corps occupied Prome.

Malaya

Still collecting ships and planes at Singapore. Three DMS’s cleared lots of mines from the harbor at Singapore.

Java

Zeroes from Kalidjati swept Tjilatjap and shot down all three B-339Ds that showed up. Sallys from Palembang and Anns from Bandoeng hit the airfield for 9 hits and 3 on the supply dump. In addition, one Do-24K-1 was damaged.

Netties from Kalidjati and Makassar hit the airfield at Soerabaja again for 22 hits and three on the supply dump. No CAP was up and the airfield looks to be empty. I’m assuming Bill transferred the planes to either Madioen or Loemadjang, the only other level four airfields on Java. Batavia is also in allied control, but it looks like Bill has all but abandoned it. Also, the airfield there is pretty roughed up still with recon indicating it still has 80+ damage.

The 14th Division is still unloading at Cheribon.

I split the 38th Division up into its three regiments. Two are bound for Semarang, the other is moving to the hex NE of Tjilatjap.

Philippines

The Tanaka and Kano detachments and the 48th Recon Rgt attacked the 41st PA Division at Subic Bay again. The 31:1 odds caused 25 Japanese casualties and 54 allied casualties.

The 1st Sasebo SNLF Coy is on its way back to Zamboanga from the hex to the NE of that base.

The Nells at Cagayan didn’t fly again today.

Sallys, Anns and Sonias from Clark hit the airfield at Bataan for 47 hits and 14 supply hits.

Celebes/Timor

The 146th Rgt, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Sasebo SNLFs and the 2nd and 8th Tank Rgts are still loading onto transports at Makassar.

South Pacific

Zeros from Rabaul swept Port Moresby and found no opposition.

Nonouti and Vanimo fell to elements of the 51st NG and 4th Independent SNLF Coy respectively.

The 52nd NG captured Efate and the 61st NG captured Luganville. Both were unoccupied.

Subs

More good hunting off of Port Moresby! SS I-23 found and sank xAK Period off of Port Moresby. Not to be outdone, SS I-24 patrolling in the same hex sank xAK Mernoo.

B-17s

Koepang was hit by 7 B-17s for 2 airfield hits and 1 hit on the supply dump.

Jan 25th 1942

Another pretty slow day aside from some islands in the central and south Pacific falling to the empire.

Sumatra

The 6th Tank Rgt attacked the Tapanoeli Garrison Bn on hex SE of Pakanbaroe. The 38:1 odds caused 39 casualties for no loss. The tanks will pursue once Djambi and Sibolga fall. I don’t want there to be any retreat route.

The II and III battalions of the 124th Rgt are one mile from Medan. The I battalion arrived at Sibolga.

Sallys based at Singapore hit the Sabang base force at Medan again.

Borneo

Still repairing the oil and refineries at Miri. Other than that, nothing’s going on.

KB

Heading to Singapore to refit.

Burma

DMS W-6 hit a mine while clearing out the harbor. I think she’s done for.

Malaya

The 1st Yokosuka SNLF arrived at Singapore yesterday and is already unpacked. The 1st Raiding Rgt is also on its way there.

Java

Netties from Kalidjati hit the port at Tjilatjap. Eight hits were scored on the port facilities and one on the fuel storage. In addition, YO-42 was sunk and ARD Tjilatjap Kv was damaged heavily.

Sallys from Palembang and Anns from Bandoeng hit the airfield at Tjilatjap for 14 hits and 1 one on the supply dump. One Catalina was damaged and another was destroyed on the ground. In addition, 3 Do-24K-1s were damaged.

The 14th Division is STILL unloading at Cheribon.

Nells from Kalidjati found and sank Express. Hopefully, Electra and Thanet sank or will be found tomorrow.

Philippines

The Tanaka and Kano detachments and the 48th Recon Rgt attacked the 41st PA Division at Subic Bay again. At the end of the combat, a message saying that allied units were surrounded at Subic Bay flashed across the screen. At the start of the next turn, Subic Bay was empty of allied units. I’ve never seen this message before. What happened to the allied units? Did they surrender?

The Nells at Cagayan hit the airfield at Iloilo for 34 hits and 6 supply hits.

Sallys, Anns and Sonias from Clark hit the port at Bataan for 26 hits and 1 supply hit.

Calapan fell to a detachment of the 3rd Yokosuka SNLF.

Celebes/Timor

The 146th Rgt, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Sasebo SNLFs and the 2nd and 8th Tank Rgts are almost loaded onto transports.

The 8th JNAF Coy took Sawoe-eilanden unopposed.

South Pacific

Arorae and Nikunau fell to detachments of the 51st NG. Saidor and Thousand Ships Bay fell to detachments of the 84th NG.

Subs

SS I-156 took a shot at an xAKL off of Denpasar and missed.

B-17s

Koepang was hit by 4 B-17s for 5 airfield hits and one hit to the supply dump. In addition, 6 more hit a small infantry unit in NW China.

Another pretty slow day.

Sumatra

The I battalion of the 124th Rgt took Sibolga which was unoccupied.

Other than that, not much going on in this theater.

Borneo

Still repairing the oil and refineries at Miri. Other than that, nothing’s going on here either.

KB

Arrived at Singapore for repairs.

Burma

The I/143rd Rgt is at Rangoon and marching toward Bassein. The II/143rd Rgt is one hex NE of Rangoon and on the way to Prome

Malaya

The 1st Raiding Rgt is 4 hexes from Singapore. Once it gets there, it will be used to take Kuching. The 1st Yokosuka SNLF is unpacking at Singapore and will be used to assist in Java.

Java

Netties from Makassar pounded the airfield at Madioen for 203 hits and 25 on the supply dump. I think it’s safe to say, this airfield is going to be out of commission for quite some time.

Sallys from Palembang, Anns from Bandoeng and Nells from Kalidjati hit Tjilatjap for 15 hits on the airfield and one supply dump hit. In the process, one B-339D was destroyed on the ground and another was damaged. In addition, one Do-24K-1 was also damaged.

The 14th Division finally finished unloading at Cheribon.

No sign of Electra and Thanet.

Philippines

The Tanaka and Kano detachments and the 48th Recon Rgt are on their way from Subic Bay to Clark for some R&R.

The Nells at Cagayan didn’t fly due to weather.

Sallys, Anns and Sonias from Clark performed ground attack missions at Bataan.

Celebes/Timor

The 146th Rgt, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Sasebo SNLFs and the 2nd and 8th Tank Rgts are loaded onto transports at Makassar. They’ll head out for Java escorted by Taiyo and Hosho plus a SCTF centered around Hyuga, Nachi and Ashigara.

The 8th JNAF Coy is loading onto transports at Sawoe-eilanden.

South Pacific

Rambutyo fell to a detachment of the 2nd Independent SNLF. The Feni Islands fell to a detachment of the 84th NG.

Subs

SS I-158 hit AG Albatros with two torpedoes. I heard the “slipping beneath the waves” sound, so I assume she’s a goner.

A couple hexes S of Billiton SS-021 took a shot at an empty xAP in a TF bound for Singapore and missed. The escorting DDs dropped some DCs for no effect.

B-17s

Koepang was hit by 7 B-17s for 6 airfield hits. Four more harassed an infantry unit in NW China.
