I saw these very strange two lines in the Operational Report for Dec 12, 41:

PO2 Nishikaichi, S. of Hiryu-1 attempts escape at 177,106
PO2 Nishikaichi, S. of Hiryu-1 is KILLED!!

This was quite bizarre, this pilot was part of my Pearl Harbor strike on 7 December and was listed as MIA?

Can anyone explain this?

Wow! Such a nice little detail.

I just can't get over how complex and realistic this game is!

Wow I learn something new every day! I knew nothing about this incident. But it sure does help to explain (to some extent) the over reaction of the US to Japanese American citizens. Thanks for sharing this, very informative. Hal

He did. Read Cpt Sherwood's post. A very interesting point of History that I did not know.

Not talking about real life, is CT Grognard turning Knavey or is this a really amazing coincidence??

Yes, I see where you're going with that JeffK. The link was very interesting (I hadn't heard of it before), but I think I smell a...Knavey-ism here.

ETA: Whoops-in keeping with the spirit, I'll channel a Tom Label.


@ CT Grognard: THE SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME, I SWEAR!!!!

One of the more interesting messages (but depressing) that I received once was "damage control crew trapped in flooded compartment." As the sub in question sank the next day I wonder if losing its damage control crew gave it a negative modifier on the next die roll?

The "die roll"? Yeah. Exactly.

I'll fess up, it was an unashamed tribute to Knavey.

I've also seen that, especially on the Japanese side, and from my experience essentially means your Flooding damage has just jumped up by at least 20 points.

On a sub, the whole crew is the damage control crew. Skimmers have designated damage control people, mostly hull technicians.

Interesting crop of that report - the title comes out "Japanese Opera"
I'm not sure what kind of song escaping pilots [or their pursuers] sing!

Obviously, the escaping pilot is singing "Freebird"!

In theory - but Hollywood would surely turn in to a sequel of the movie that should not be named...
