Okay, that's the last of the carrier strikes near Brisbane for a while:

I've got a CS off the coast that's keeping an eye on Allied shipping and the Allies have discovered it. I guess I'd better move it further
out to sea and come back west undetected and try it again.

I'm outnumbered and outgunned and I'm still winning. What a deal. I can't wait to see what happens when all the rest of my troops
finally arrive:

And at Singkep there was a bombardment that reduced the fortifications to 0 and the rest of the assaults will be better I hope.

TF 23 is my naval bombardment TF to clobber Port Moresby but I've added another BB this time so the Allied losses should be greater.
I'm hoping it will be. Anyway that's the theory. I have to do this to save my troops. They are depending on me to do something to help
them hold off the Allied forces.

EDIT: Oh yeah, I was going to say something about all the SYS damage that's accumulating. Lots of trips w/o any refit will do that.

I only just now noticed that Jim has a sub inside the harbor at Yokohoma despite a minefield. It's a level 7 port so I don't know what good
his driving up into the port will do but he's brave to risk a sub there.

Bubble Drop has a fuel level of about 25K now.....that's low for a hub. I'm hauling fuel as fast as my ships will sail and I'm still falling
behind in the fuel demand. I'm going to have to stop driving my ships around all over the map I guess. For a little while anyway. Jim will
have free rein to move his troops into Canton because that's too far away for me to mess with etc. It's okay he needs a break.

TF 161 is headed for Shikuka which is really handy for getting resources, it's close to the home islands after all. The one bad thing about
it is that there's no Resource Center there so when the resources are gone from Shikuka they're gone. So I'll have to look someplace
else for resources. TF 161 is going to, hopefully, get most of the resources in this one trip.

I put the CVE Taiyo in for repair at Singkawang because there seems to be a lull in the naval fighting near Singapore right now. It
seemed like a good time. I expect to get her back in about 3 days.

TF 290 is parked at Tokyo and I had intended to load only supplies but I've got three AK's or equivalent that are loading fuel too, this with
the fuel level at Tokyo about 66K or so. Very low fuel level to be giving fuel out this way but maybe they won't load much. And besides
the place where they are going will probably need the fuel. So I'll let it go for now.

I sent TF 321 to Makassar because there was an HQ unit there that I could draw mines from. And so far it's jumped from 3 mines
aboard to 7. My plan is working I guess. Good to know.

TF 335 is my southern carrier group and I've got a carrier w/ major damage to fix and the sorties are almost gone and the Val's need to
be replaced w/ a new squadron that has all it's planes and I guess I should take them to Rabaul because Tulagi is mined, Shortlands
doesn't have enough fuel to go around and Rabaul isn't all that much further to go.

TF 341 is my northern carrier group and they are parked at Yokohoma awaiting the repair of 2 BB's and 2 CA's to make their sub-fleet
perfect. There's an Allied sub in the port w/ my ships running around but I guess they are protected by the anti-sub nets or something.
So far so good.

I've got a DD parked at Balikapan that's been Winchester on his Depth Charges for about 5 days in a row now. Part of that is that there
is no HQ unit at Balikpapan, only a company of AF dudes, and it's only a level 4 port. So I should probably arrange for an escort for her
so as to go to a port that has an HQ unit. There's plenty nearby so it's only a minor hassle.

TF 455 is a BB and a CA w/o escorts and they are sailing out of Rabaul headed for Buna. I'm going to add them to the Port Moresby
naval bombard group. That will add some juice to their bombarding I'm pretty sure. And that's what those Allied troops need: more
bombarding.

I finally figured out why Jim has a sub in my port at Yokohoma: he's planting mines. It's the only answer to why he would risk it. He's
figured out that all he has to do is mine all my ports and the war is over in six months. This game may undergo a restart in the future,
because Jim may win this thing after all. I've just gotten some of his ships and he's working from an advantage now that I have only two
minesweepers. Unless there's other ships that can sweep for mines besides the DMS's I'm counting. Anybody know?

I thought a level 4 airfield at Palembang might come in handy for something so I'm unloading the 9th something or other, AF dudes there
at Palembang to bring the airfield support level up to snuff. Next I'll fly some planes into there.

Larry,

I think just about any small craft can sweep for mines (PC, KV, DD etc).
DMS may be better at it, but I think they all can do it.

Oh. Okay. Thank you for the info. I'll try it. Can't hurt trying.

Outside of the dedicated minelaying subs like the Argonaut, most US subs lay pretty small minefields. They can be a nuisance, but hardly a gamebreaker.

Oh. Okay, then. I guess I overreacted a little. You're right. I can relax a little bit and just play the game. Thanks, I needed that.
