Hey now, there's a new Allied TF just showing up on my radar SE of Tarawa. I'll have to go investigate further.

One of my subs gets lucky near Colombo. The Cornwallis is showing up on the sunk ships list.

Funny thing on my attack on Mersing: 7 planes flew on the mission but 8 were damaged. Pretty cool trick.

Jim has split his Manila remnants into two groups and I have to bomb them separately. I'm surprised that Jim was able to get one of the groups to move out of the hex he was in since I'm bombing it so regularly I would have thought they were "stuck" in their hex but
apparently not.

And the Cagayan beat down continues. I'm wondering if I can destroy the 102nd PA Inf Div by air attacks. Probably not.

And Jim attacks me w/ his PBY's at Rangoon. I think maybe Jim is using his PBY's as bombers because he doesn't have anything else
to use. Either that or his PBY squadrons are in his little black book of misfits and he's trying to get rid of them.

And then the Japs capture something or other. At least the southern front is advancing. Maybe I can wrap this up pretty soon by
advancing all the way from where they are now to the northern front positions. That's my plan at least.

This attack at Mersing is surprising. I guess the Allied units must be out of supply or something because they outnumber me but they got
the brunt of the losses. Interesting. Maybe I should try a DA soon.

TF 511 is sitting right where the Allied TF was yesterday and the Allied TF has disappeared from the radar. They were reportedly
heading SW when they were last seen so I'm guessing they went that way. I've got a CS that's looking in that sector......we'll find them
eventually maybe.

It would be really nice to know exactly what kind of Allied unit is at the tip-end of southern Java and I just happened to have an E boat
that would just love to run up there to Pamekasan and do a naval bombardment just to get a list of what's there in the combat results.

TF 264 is built around the CVE Taiyo and she's only got room for a squadron of Vals and no CAP is present so I'm going to have to
rely on my land-based CAP dudes to protect the carrier when I run her up next to the east coast near Mersing to get at that Alliled
shipping on the west coast side of Malaya. We'll see how good that plan works.

Midget subs are more of a hassle than useful. I thought I might park a midget sub on all the Allied hot spots, like Johnston Island, so as
to just loiter there and keep an eye on things. So now I've got this midget sub at Johnston Island that's out of torpedoes and can't go
get some more on it's own and it'll take me at least a month to get a sub carrier down there to retrieve him and take him somewhere
where he can get some more torpedoes. And then I gotta take him out to his station again. Whoa. It almost makes me want to treat it
as expendable. But to be realistic I guess I should go retrieve it, rearm it, and send it out again.

TF 335 is my SW carriers and they struck for the first time this morning, ( or was it afternoon? ) and I've got bou cou Allied ships in the
port at Brisbane and it's likely that they will stay put and not skedaddle at first chance, but on the other hand there's some Allied ships
at Syndey that are already made into TF's and moving and maybe there's some ships in the port as well there at Sydney. At any rate,
I'm going to do a patrol pattern w/ this carrier group, continually moving north and south to confuse his CAP dudes between Brisbane
and Sydney, inclusive, and hopefully we'll maximize the BDA on this tour. I'm going to run out of sorties in about two days of continual
striking, I'm guessing, but I'll probably run out of fuel first. That's where the AO comes in handy. I'll get the AO group to head south to
join in on the fun.

I've got an AO at Truk that needs to take onboard about 10K of fuel and there's only about 20K of fuel at Truk, so I don't feel safe about
filling up that AO from Truk. So that means that Truk is no longer combat ready. I need an emergency delivery of fuel to Truk. I just
thought you guys would want to know.

I need for nothing to happen to DMS W-3 on this trip to Bataan so I've given him 3 escorts to get him there. I'm going to put him to the
task of reducing the mine fields at Bataan and Manila harbor. Then I can start using Manila's repair yard..........I think.

Get UPS onto that. Its logistics...

That's a great idea. I called them and asked for a quote on how much it would cost to transport 30K of fuel to Truk and how long it would
take and I was told $1 a ton and two weeks. I said thanks but that's too expensive and takes too long. I'll just do it myself.

Jim and I exchanged files and here's some fresh combat results. I think maybe I've found that Allied TF. It's reached it's destination I
guess and now I need to put together a response to this intrusion. I think I'll scoot the carrier(s) to this location and see if I can't break
up the Allied party going on.
