I'm balancing the need to retreat from the Japs with the need for scavenging all the fuel, supplies, resources, and oil from those places
that have them. I'm sending AK's and AP's back into the combat area to harvest whatever can be moved. And then when the Jap
invasions get closer I'll move the ships out of the affected area(s).

Colombo is just now passing through about 59K of fuel and about 59K of supplies and I don't expect any large shippments from Karachi
and or Bombay so I may have to put a moritorium on the despensing of fuel and supplies if it gets too much lower. I'm aiming for 500K of
each in Colombo as soon as I have the pipeline up and running properly. There's only so much supplies at Aden that pretty soon I'll have
to close that route down and concentrate on more lucrative sources.

This is Karachi now. It's not nearly as full of goodies as I would like. I'd like to eventually get the fuel and supplies levels up to about
100K each before I seriously start using Karachi as a source of goodies. But I know that's pie in the sky and probably will have to be
used before then but maybe after the pipeline is up and running. And then when Aden and Abadan cease being good sources then
Karachi is the next thing to empty out of goodies. It's in an out-of-the-way place in the Hub and spoke supply scheme I have planned.

I consider Aden picked clean already but Abadan still has some goodies worth making a trip for. Or maybe 20 more hefty trips and then
the trips to Africa will largely be over.

Here's what it looks like from an Allied perspective. I thought about maybe annotating this picture but that seems like a lot of work.
Maybe next time.

Damage to the subs has been light so far. I've been sending almost all of the cripples to Singapore and I can think of only one case
where I sent a sub to Manila but that's because it was practically in the harbor already. I might be able to win this sub war if I can keep
the damage this low all the time.

I got to the end of the turn and clicked the button, watched the movie and here's some fresh combat reports. First, here's the losses for

And near Formosa USS Pearch does spectacularly well against an AK on the surface. Depending on the damage to the Perch I may
have to pull her back to the repair yards.

I selected just four from the several attacks that happened next at Rabaul. There was lots of shooting back and forth and so on.

And then some Nells attack my shipping at Wake. I'm kinda concerned that I could get only 2 Wildcats airborne. I'll have to look into that
to see if the squadron there needs to be replaced or something.

The Wildcat squadron at Wake looks ok to me. I turned down the CAP from 90 to 80 and bumped up the rest to 20 because the fatigue
level seems a bit on the medium side instead of low. Morale is still high though so I'm going to leave them there for a while before I
replace them. They seem to thrive on stress.

I wasn't aware that Rangoon was at risk of Jap air strikes but I see that it is. I hadn't intended that those AP's and AK's be targets but it
looks like they are and if anybody survives this I'll move them w/o delay.

This is the first of the Allied carrier air strikes at Wake. The Jap TF was devestated and the invasion ground force was wiped out in the
panik attak the Japs launched just after landing. I mean shock attack.

With supplies and fuel coming in all the time from Aden and Abadan, Karachi is expanding it's waistline swelling up getting fat on fuel
especially. There's going to be a route Karachi -> Colombo and from there to Perth. It's already moving.

The name field of this TF reads something about being in Carnarvon, Oz on 08Dec42 and today's 21Dec42 so it's about 14 days or two
weeks from Carnarvon to Colombo. And about the same to Perth.

That, or maybe time the load / unload of a TF, transit time is my favorite though. Plus you can leave yourself reminders for the next day's
operations, like, Rabaul needs fuel, or Tulagi needs supplies etc.
