The Fourth of July, 1942. There hasn't been many things of interest to report for a while. I bombarded Espiritu Santo with 9 BBs but he saw me coming and evacuated his planes beforehand. I believe I got a 14 or 16" hit on an AE but have no idea if she went down. We're having a bit of a to-do south of Daly Waters in Australia. He lost a lot of tanks I believe, up to 74 but many of these may have been trucks. Half of them were "disabled" and he was ejected from the hex, I don't happen to know if you take your disabled stuff with you when you retreat. In China he appears to be shifting some of his weight to the south, so as to have credible offensives from both the south and the northeast.
In an aside, my animated smileys are not animated. Is this Matrix saving processing speed (happening to everyone) or is it my computer settings somewhere?
Unless the AE got heavy fires, it will likely survive one hit.
Disabled guns and vehicles always seem to escape! I have tried doing shock attacks [331:1] against a unit down to one disabled gun, one disabled vehicle, and four troops [< 1 squad] and they skitter away like a greased pig. I was playing sandbox so I could see both sides unit info. Bombing and bombarding seems to do a better job of killing off the disabled devices.
The Matrix smiley animation is still working for me ...
