This turn has been interesting, maybe the Allied started his offensive again.
Another B-17Es attack but fortunately they still are to few to do real damages, anyhow every time some bomber is reported damaged, the flak is doing a good job.
Finally we have news by enemy CVs, Allied TBs and DBs attacked Tassafaronga.
Now I need to know if it will be another amphibious operation or if he is trying to heavily reinforce Guadalcanal.
A CV TF under Mikawa command will be my investigation force (2 CVs, 1 CVL, 2 BBs, 4 CAs and 6 DDs), it is following a SC TF (1 BB, 4 CAs , 1CL and 6 DDs) ready for anything.
Question: what about my TFs composition, are they efficient?
Horii Group launched a successful deliberate attack against the 30th Australian Brigade cleaning the base by enemy presence.
