By Tuesday the 27th the IJA had escaped the northern Burma jungles ceding Katha in the process; the rear guard was smashed today.

Thank you Joe. It took a long time to get a foot hold back on New Guinea. I don't think he can take it back now without horrendous losses.

May 7-8, 1943

NorPac: The IJN scores a merchant kill with a sub in the frigid waters off the Aleutians. Umnak is fortified, defended, and now boasts a strip. (air not club)

CenPac: Reports on IJN TFs have been coming from Frigate shoals to Palmyra for several days with no clear spots. The 32nd Infantry division is at sea destined for their jump off point in SoPac.

SoPac: Here is where the Pacific war is at its most tense. The last stages of getting a toe hold on the Solomons chain is in its final stage. I am trying to get coastal guns and marines ashore at Kira Kira. Fast battleships and the Hornet are very vulnerable and will be more so for 48 hours while I attempt a landing in front of IJN destroyers holed up around Tulagi. I may pull them if they are still undetected tomorrow and allow the destroyers to screen as best they can.

SwPac: Port Moresby goes to AF6 and the first raid by Mitchells surprise IJN merchants at anchor. The results are most encouraging. P38s return to Rabaul on the 7th and go 11 and 0 making up for the prior days exchange. Note: Manus has no airfield.

Burma: There is a summer offensive in the works. Most all units are in their forward jumping off points. Chindits are on the flanks. We plan a large air raid today, deep in Thailand. The hope is to bleed off some of his bombers from China, where over 300 strike daily.

ps. Last game I play without stacking limits!

Burma: I have ordered P38s to sweep anywhere I can spot IJAF concentrations. I have run into new Imperial Japanese aircraft which are far superior than the early Zekes encountered before. I have not even seen Tojo's for some time. J2M2, NIK1J, and KI61 are at the fore front now. Results are mixed, with the P38s maintaining a slightly better kill ratio. As long as I can get the big boys in and out with minimal fighter interference I'm ok with it. Rangoon hit hard today but it is a large complex and will need much more "working over". I have good news as another bomb group from the states has arrived in Africa along with several fresh fighter squadrons.

Ouch! You will certainly miss those APAs and the AKA. War is heck.

How did this happen? You didn't notice you got detected? Only a couple of P40s to protect vital shipping is not enough. Perhaps fly in AV support using Cats until you can support 3 squadrons at least!

There is no radar on Kira Kira. When I staged in the P40Ks from the Fiji's I set them to rest. On the second say, the day of the IJN spot, I absent mildly left them on rest. There would have been 50 fighters available for CAP if I had paid better attention to detail. An omission cost me.

Use up some supply and buy some of those barges that you get to run in cargo/supply and then use some of the APDs for troops. I'll use supply to buy barges and keep going until I get the mix I want. The rest I send back to the pool as they come back in 15 days. Have PT Boats go with them and they stay there by refueling from the barges (get some barges to load fuel).

Do you still have some of those small xAKLs from Australia you could use?? Some can carry small amounts of troops and are cheaper than those APAs.

I had not thought of the barges, I will look into when I get my May 31st turn back. I do have quite a few xAKs tied up in Tasmania, refugees from '41. Heres another enigma.

VMF-122 has 1st generation Corsair (F4U-1). These are NOT carrier capable!! Take them off, now.

EDIT:
VADM Mitscher should a CV TF leader, not a CV leader.

Some of those Australian xAKL/xAKs are able to upgrade to small xAPs, depending on scenario.

Aircraft held in reserve by squadron are counted in the aircraft capacity. Check to see if your squadrons are holding more than one or two reserve aircraft.

PS - Great catch Michael! Not many of us are as familiar with plane types to see that one right away.

As Hornet is the only carrier remotely close to any Japanese, Mitscher is both TF CO and Captain, at least that's what I think is going on here. The Essex has arrived and made the west coast. She waits for several CVEs and the Lexington. The Lex is 17-18 days away from slipping out of dry dock. As it looks like NorPac may see a little action I may see if I can bag some IJN cruisers now spotted in the Bering Sea threatening Umnak, now a level 5 field, before joining Hornet in SoPac. As the next series of operations will not require the carriers, whatever I do with them will not incur undue risk to my small seaborne naval assets.

Yes Sir!

As I do not intend engaging Hornet in the near future she takes a large Avenger contingent aboard for ASW duty.
