TF 9 is a DD parked at Hong Kong and the TF name field says wait for BB's but I got to looking and it's going to be another two months
before those BB's are going to be seaworthy again. I think maybe I may have some other things to do w/ this DD besides remain tied up to the pier.
Hong Kong's repair yard is not capaple rapairing that many ships. The capacity is 50.000 tons, and there 103.000 tons assinged to repair yard.
My suggestions: AV Tokai Maru don't have any major damage, take her off repair yard to pierside repair. Set Nagato's priority to high, that way you shoud get her sooner than 57 days. You could also move CA Suzuya somewhere else (with escorts of course). Does Pescadores have enough capacity for heavy cruiser?
You can always expand repair yard, but at the moment Hong Kong doesn't have supply for expansion. And I don't think Hong Kong is the best place to expand repair shipyards anyway.
I've got enough supply to get some supply to Hong Kong but it'd take a week and I agree with you that Hong Kong isn't the best place
to expand the repair shipyards. After I've captured those repair yards in Java I'd love to expand those because I expect a lot of ship
repair business. But hey, before I forget, thanks for all those great tips you've laid on me ( us ). I'm thinking that I might benefit a lot
by just moving those ships at HK to a better repair yard.........like Yokohoma, or no, what's the name of that one on the west coast?
Nagasaki. That one. Just the time to move them there would be paid for by the faster repair time I figure.
