Here's how it went on the ground at Manila:

I'm using an unusual TF to do the bombarding of Darwin. The BB is the heavy guns and the APD's are there just for the ASW. I'm hoping
to be able to eliminate those two or three Kingfisher Float Planes at Darwin. Also, I'm giving some thought to maybe sailing over to Java
and doing something about those deadly PBY's that Jim has somewhere. I'm afraid of hitting a mine around Java however and Darwin
is naked so far. Bombarding Darwin does what for me? I'm not sure I'm doing something constructive by bombarding Darwin. I mean I
can always cause some damage to the port and the airfield but in the long run I'm not sure that's all that helpful for my long range goals.

Here's a list of the ships under repair at Kwajalein. I'm trying to repair the Carriers one at a time in case I need to use the rest of them
really quickly. There's a lot of minor repair going on as well. I'm not sure what the stacking level is for ships but I'm pretty sure the port
is almost full. I've got the three more carriers loitering at Kwaj. waiting for the next big adventure to come along.

You can see the picket line between Midway and Wake in this image. But that's not what I'm writing about here. At Wake is an AO that is
part of a scientific experiment. Japan higher HQ is looking for ways to boost the efficiency of the ships and they think maybe a new blend
of fuel is needed. The new blend will be a mix of crude oil and JP-4. JP-4 is plentiful and cheaper than gasoline and burns really well.
So this AO at Wake is holding 9K gallons of the new blend and we're going to start fueling the ships w/ it tomorrow.

I've got the carrier Taiyo parked at Singkawang right now. There's 17 Kates on board but only 4 of them are flyable. I've stood them
down ever since that ill-fated unescorted strike on Georgetown that cost me a lot of planes. I'm hoping I can get some Zero's on board
and drive the carrier out to Christmas Island IO to protect the shipping there. That way I can continue loading resources out of there and
not have to worry about those deadly PBY's that Jim has been using.

I-25 was battered a bit last night and this morning and needs to head back to the repair barn and evidently one of the ships hunting for
her is a PT boat. That's probably FOW but on the other hand it wouldn't surprise me to find out Jim is using PT boats to chase my subs.
He's done some really tricky things w/ PBY's so I'm thinking he's thinking out of the box.

I'm moving the 8th Indpt dudes to Tulagi and while the AP is there I'm going to see if I can't do some rearranging while it's there. I want to
move the road construction dudes to Lunga so they can get started on a port and I want to move the AF Coy dudes to Lunga so that
when there's an airport it'll have some AF support. Come to thnk of it maybe I ought to leave the AF dudes at Tulagi UNTIL there's an
airfield at Lunga. I can always get an AP to run down to Tulagi and do a move for me.....probably within a week tops.

Ten Emily's are arriving at Marcus Island. They are presently in crates but I'm expecting the AF dudes to put them back together for me.
I'm not sure if Marcus Island is the best place for them but I needed, I thought, at least something that could do naval searching for me.
There's just so much open blue water that Jim could sneak a TF through and get into my backfield and wreak havoc with my shipping.
I don't need that kind of drama unless it's me doing it to him.

TF 532 is the one I've been using to bombard Cagayan and the BB came back to port w/ some major damage to fix and so this
bombardment business is effectively out of business for a while. This seemed a good time to move the rest of the ships to Rabaul. The
BB w/ a DD escort is on it's way to Hong Kong because I remembered having a problem getting a BB to move up the river to Saigon.
So Hong Kong it is for now. That BB might not fit into the shipyard at Hong Kong and in that case it's to Nagasaki for the BB I guess.

I've got the 7th Indpt SNLF pointed at Munda so far but I might have to re-think that. I'm thinking I need a port and an airfield between
and among the islands I already hold to make things more secure overall. I don't have any engineers rounded up to go to Munda yet
but lemme look around some and see if I can't find some for the task.

TF 614 is weary and in need of a little refit. I'm heading them to Nauru because that's the largest concentration of fuel in this part of the
world. After they have fueled I'll move them to a bigger, better-equiped port for some refit. The problem is that I'm not sure that they are
in condition to use where they are urgently needed, like around Canton and Palmyra. Those places will take a couple of AO's to get
there and I'm not sure where my AO's are right now, but that's a different post. I'm thinking I'm going to move them to Kwaj. to get fixed
and then move them to Wake or somewhere.

I finally got enough AP's together in one spot to load the 10th Garrison Unit at Nagoya. I'm debating on where to take them. There's
just so many places they are needed. I'm leaning toward putting them on Munda since I'm building a base there.

I've got two BB's and a CL at Hong Kong that are damaged and even in the shipyard aren't repairing very fast so I'm going to move them
to a better repair yard. Kagoshima maybe.

TF 44 is some transports w/ and escort and I've decided to use them to fatten up Rabaul somewhat. Truk is bulging w/ supplies and I
figure I could probably be doing a good thing to bring some of those closer to the fighting, to Rabaul. And maybe even distribute some
of them to Shortlands and Tulagi as well. I'm thinking that Tarawa is short on fuel too. Maybe I should dedicate a TF or two to doing
nothing but delivering supplies to the front lines. From Truk as the exporting hub.

I've sent an AMC to Port Hedland to beat up on the AP and AM that are there but alas, I forgot to change the mission from Cargo to
Surface Combat and nobody has shot at anybody yet. Now that the mission is SC I'm thinking that my AMC might take a shot or two
today sometime before the sun comes up again, probably. So we may have some drama soon.

My original plan was for TF 55 to be a component of the convoy that conveys the 14th Division from Port Arthur to somewhere and it
seems that the 14th Division is still strung out on the highway somewhere and it'll be a few days yet before the TF's need to be there so
maybe I can get one more resources run out of TF 55 before the 14th Division needs them.

All the ships indicated in red won't fully repair at Kwajalein. You'd be better served putting them back to readiness and moving them to a bigger port. Click the "Manage ships under repair" button near the bottom centre on the screen display to see the port capacity for repairs at Kwaj, I can tell you it will be next to nothing. Not an ideal location and you're actually wasting time that these ships could use transiting to more efficient repair facilities.

First of all, thanks for posting something about it. A fresh pair of eyes can see what I can't. I agree w/ everything you said and I'm going
to see if I can't fix the problems at Kwajalein w/ reguard to the ships under repair. I'm still kinda new at this, can you tell?

TF 66 is a bare naked CM and I've just ordered her to lay 35 mines at Port Hedland. Thirty five mines isn't a lot but if just one of them
works then maybe the "idea" of there being a minefield will deter Jim. Like a bluff. But yeah, more mines would be better.

TF 82 is one of my longer-ranged DD's and I need her services now. There's a couple of Alllied TF's showing on the radar now and I
know they aren't going to be there when the DD gets there but I can use the position of the DD as one of the last-known-good positions
of the Allied ships. There's an AV w/ Float Plane that I'd like to keep within range so I can maintain an illumination of the Allied ships. Or
at least one group of them. Those headed SW aren't the threat that those headed SE might be.
