Sho-1 is now in full swing. The KB refuels and moves NW of Rennel Islands. It will swing then SSE to move down to New Caledonia and pass of its south side.
Three Invasion TF move slowly SE waiting for their escorts to arrive. The plan is to attempt to to coordinate the three landings to happen at the same time or within a two days of each other.
Lunga is now AF-4 with 63 Zero and 108 Betty--Nell. The cat will, OFFICIALLY, be out of the bag tomorrow as I fly recon over all targets. KB's planes are set to CAP 60% (Stacked at 22, 17, 12, 7,000 Ft), Vals 12K, and Kates 8K. Just to restate the KB composition: Akagi, Kaga, Hiryu, Soryu, Shokaku, Zuikaku, Ryujo, Shoho, Zuiho, and Rjuho.
