Playing my modified version of DaBabe Lite Scn#26.

My bad for not having my Dutch Patrol a/c patrolling, they were transporting additional troops into
Singkawang. So I was surprise to see IJN-TF in the port, mouse roll over indicated a Amp TF, so I sent the closes
warship to disrupt the landing. Of course the big boys did accompany the Amp TF, which resulted int the following
surface action. Three of the four IJN ships were showing smoke and fire when TF broke off. Plus the Amp TF was
forced to abort the landing. DD Reed did suffer damage, mostly system, around 60, flooding is manageable abut 5 and fire was listed as 2.

The date is 19 Dec 1941

Interesting outcome!

Did you intend to start an AAR? If so, this should be copied and started in the AAR section.

Thinking about doing some kind of AAR. More like a recap of highlights than a day by day outcome

Only two weeks into the game. Have notes on some of my planning, just have to type up

Thanks for the support

Wow! It even got more hits against IJN.

By how much, had Reed crew experience increased, after this battle?

Have to wait to get into port to see what’s changed

I do not consider his stats good for a DD skipper, except for the aggression. What seems to have paid off was the crew experience being quite high. That will also play into saving the ship, per your AAR report on damage.

I agree not the best rating for a skipper
