No reason to pay PPs for Dutch LCUs or air units in this mod either. As you say, no replacements.

Not sure about Dutch reinforcement in this game, have to check, but I believe you are correct that they get none

First I would like to tip my hat to everyone who takes the time to do an in-depth AAR, just doing the little that I have done here is a lot of work. I guess I need to take better notes of what I'm doing or get one of the 3rd party aids to work.

Sent one of my CVTF south hoping to catch the two IJN AMC that are in the South Pacific, I believe I sunk both of them. The second CVTF headed towards Wake to
break up the invasion there, which it did. Almost made a serious mistake. I was able to evacuate Wake, but left the CVTF in the area. Thought I gave orders to return
to PH. Anyway the TF was still IVO Wake when the second invasion TF appeared. This force was also attack by air and driven away. My fighters are hurting from being on CAP for more than a week. All will need a good rest when they get back to PH

8-16 December 1941 activity

Thanks BBfanboy.

Have compiled all the notes but there is a two or three day battle between the IJN TF mention in post 31 and the USN TF with
Houston/Boise and the Dutch TF

Something to tease the readers with.

1st Major surface battle

The IJN SCTF consisting of; CA Mogami, CA Mikuma, CA Suzuya and CA Kumano with DD Satsuki, DD Minazuki, DD Fumizuki, DD Asakaze, DD Matsukaze and DD Minekaze. These ships were part of a CVL-TF but oops the CVL was sunk on the 25th in a surface action with one Dutch and one British SCTF. BC Repulse did sustain serious damage and still fighting fires on the 29 Dec 41.

The CVL-TF had played havoc with some of my retreating TF bring supplies or fuel from various locations in the DEI. So it had already used up some of its ammo supply. After the engagement on the 25th, I figure that the IJN-TF would be getting low on ammo and torpedoes. The lightly damaged Allies unites returned to Soerabaja to rearm and then when back for more.

In the meantime SCTF Alpha, with CA Huston, and CA Boise with DD Alden, DD Edsall, DD John D. Edwards, DD Whippie, DD B Craven, DD C Craven and DD D Craven were off to try and intercept the IJN. (Whose dat? Remember that this is my mod of #26 and the three Craven ships listed are some of the ones I added)

Over the course of two days of fighting with 10 engagements between the USN and IJN and two engagements by the combine Dutch/British the IJN are low on fuel and probably very low on ammo. Not all of the engagements results in combat

Results for the two days of action:

CA Mogami 3 shell hit
CA Mikuma 1 shell hit
CA Suzuya
CA Kumano 8 shell hit
DD Satsuki 1 shell hit
DD Minazuki 2 shell hit
DD Fumizuki 2 shell hit
DD Asakaze
DD Matsukaze 3 shell hit
DD Minekaze 4 shell hit

CA Huston 2 shell hit
CA Boise 4 shell hits (broke off with C Craven returning to Broome)
DD Alden
DD Edsall
DD John D. Edwards
DD Whippie
DD B Craven 1 shell hit
DD C Craven
DD D Craven 1 shell hit sunk (this occur in the first battle)

CL Dragon 1 shell hit, no other damage to the Dutch/British TF.

I expect the IJN TF will continue to retreat, how far will it go? I shifting subs to try and block it.
All my ships have to return to port for ammo or refit.

The Japanese TF shows as an Escort TF. That means movement will be slowed by heavily damaged ships so I would guess about three hexes per phase.

CL Mauritius, with DD Parrott, DD Scott, DD Encounter, DD Isis, DD Jupiter, DM Stronghold and
DM Thracian are departing Darwin for interceptions I hope. As well as any subs that had been resting in port

What I have to be careful of is tunnel vision. There is another IJN CVL-TF 3 hexes NNE of Batavia
