Here's the situation near Tarawa. Jim has the BB-heavy group streaming east skipping the harrassment of Nauru or Ocean Island and
he's so far south my Betty's probably won't reach him and I'll have to go to full speed to catch up to him.

This is me turning off the refinery at Palembang. Fuel is starting to pile up and I'm finding that I can fuel my entire fleet from Palley if
only I can move the fuel outta there. I'm moving some to Cam Ranh Bay and there's a lot more to move yet. I'd really rather move oil to
the home islands than fuel because you can get more than one gallon of fuel from each gallon of oil. The units might have to change but
the principle is the same. I get more bang for my buck w/ oil than with fuel.

TF 23 is all set to bombard Darwin but I checked out the base and there's only a few planes there and it's not much of a threat to my
operations and I'm wondering if I ought to use TF 23 to do naval bombardments of Port Moresby instead. I'd need an AO to get TF 23
to Port Moresby and I don't think one is nearby. I'll have to scrape one up and send it to Babar as the first stage of the new operation.

I've got a couple of subs moving back and forth just offshore of SFO and every once in a while I get a juicy target but sometimes Jim
sorties a DD or some other threat to my subs and I usually just let them pass but I'm thinking I ought to try to put a torp in them too.

I've got TF 704 all set to do some of the first naval bombardments of Manila so far. I've got only one DMS ship attached to the TF so I'm
thinking somebody is going to hit a mine, either at Bataan or at Manila. We'll see. And the defensive guns might just hurt my DMS boat
so I'm thinking there's a lot that can go wrong on this mission. Oh, and yes the bombardment numbers are wrong and I fixed them later.

Just after I invaded Ketapang these Allied ships showed up on the map and I'm thinking I might be able to get a DD into the path of that
Allied TF and maybe get a hit or two on them. There's a CA w/ escorts at Oosthaven that I can send as well. Maybe the days of these
Allied ships are numbered. Maybe not. We'll see.

TF 198 was unloading a large 23K slug of supplies on Bubble Drop but I see that location is already over 100K in supplies and Truk is
lower so I'm going to send the TF to Truk instead to try to keep the level of supplies roughly equal at the two hubs.

TF 309 is a PB acting as one of my picket ships, of which you can see 5 in this picture. I am leaning toward using subs more than PB's
if only because there's a chance of fighting back w/ a sub whereas a PB would probably get some damage in a knife-fight with an AK.
The arrangement is supposed to start the real work after there's a contact. I would then respond with a surface element or a carrier or
both. It's been working pretty good so far so I'm not complaining. I can't be everywhere at once and have only limited assets compared
to the Allies so I'm trying to make them multi-task and serve more than one function everywhere I can.

TF 335 is a task force built around a carrier. I'm sending it even more south to take care of an outbreak of Allied ships from the New-
castle area. The docked and disbanded symbol has dissappeared from Brisbane and I don't know what that means in terms of the
success of a port attack....I'll have to test that out and see. Meanwhile, maybe there's some more ships in Newcastle that I can sink.

This is a bird's eye view of my skirmish line in front of Wake. It's not straight because Jim might expect a straight line. Also, I'm too lazy
to make it straight. Notice that these ships are more toward the cheap end of the ship cost zone. I expect to lose them. They are to be
considered expendable. In real war this duty would be rotated among the other ships in the division to make it as fair as possible
because it's not considered all that popular w/ the sailors, this duty. So I'd guess I'd better start rotating the duty among some other
ships to make it fair for everybody. Just another detail to take care of in this click-world game......makes it more realistic too. For me at
least.

Kwajalien is down to 11K of fuel and I consider that an emergency so I'm going to designate this AP w/ escort as TF 456
and send it and some badly needed fuel to Kwajalein. I notice that the escort complains that it hasn't the range to make that kind of trip
so I give it a waypoint of Truk to refuel fully and if it can't make it even that far then I'll just do refueling ops enroute to enable the escort
the range to make the trip. I expected to have to do that anyway. That's what you guys would do right? Opinions are enabled. Um....
I've been giving some thought to maybe assigning each escort an "area" to have to cover escort duties and control them like an air traffic
controller would have to control airplanes. And to more or less standardize the routes I could assign escorts to the gaps in the chain of
the route from island to island or whatever, to try to make sure that each gap has an escort and that each ship entering that gap gets an
escort assigned so that everybody is escorted if possible. What do you guys think of that, perchance?

TF 460 is a CM that laid about 50 mines about 5 days ago in and around the port of Darwin and I don't know how many mines are left
from the original minefield and even Tracker won't tell me because it's an Allied base and I'm the Jap and so I'm not sure the tending of
the mines is doing any good so I don't know if I should risk a CM to this mission any more. It's in patrol mode so it's not using a bunch of
fuel and it's not suffered any major damage to fix and it's not being attacked yet, at least from Darwin. Maybe Jim will sail a volunteer
suicide missiion to Darwin just to get my CM. I'm thinking that event has very low probability and give it a discount big enough to ignore
it. I'll leave him there for now just to see what happens next. Do I run out of mines to tend or does Jim attack my CM somehow or other.

Not strange at all. That tanker-class have also a small supply capacity. It'll load both oil and resources.

I can't clear the minefield at Manila very well yet and barrelled right in there just like I knew what I was doing and one of my CL's hit a mine
but he survived and he's on his way to Saigon w/ an escort to get fixed right. I'm going to continue getting ships hit by mines everytime
I enter that minefield I'll bet. Just so long as the ships survive I can almost live with that.

YEAH. That's what I'm talking about. Naval bombardment is accellerating the breakdown of Manila and that's a good thing. That mine-
field is worrying however. I'm using only one DMS ship 'cause it's the only one left that's undamaged and I just entered the Manila mine-
field and only had one ship hit a mine and it survived and I'm thinking that's going to happen again with a different ship next time but it's
almost worth it if I can bombard Manila again.

My Zero's did a sweep of Soerabaja and found a Dutch plane to shoot down. I think maybe the Dutch are just about out of planes.
