The USA West Coast ports received their own base units. However, the forts guarding the US West COast Ports are sadly defecient. I find it interesting that some effort was made to improve the Commonwealth Forts in both Canada and Australia, meanwhile the forts protecting Hawaii and the US West Coat lanquished. As an example Puget Sound/Seattle was protected by three major forts, the locations of which allowed for triangulation of targets in the kill zone. These forts were Fort Flagler, Fort Casey, and Fort Worden, not to mention other forts located along the Juan de Fuca Straits at the mouth and along the south shore. Maybe there is insufficient space for adding these, and some justification at least for the West Coast Ports of not having any of them there at all. There is no way the Japanese can ever truely threaten amhibious assault on the West Coast. I would suggest either beefing them up or removing them and instead add additional forts located on Oahu, primarily Fort Ruger at Diamond Head and Fort Hase at Kaneohe Bay in north Oahu. See:
Not revising the US West Coast forts is my fault. I initially wanted to revise the Australian forts to correct a few problems and omissions. I then ended up revising the Canadian forts because I started to add/change bases in Canada. I intended to have a detailed look at the US forts, including Pearl Harbor, but I never got around to it. This was all before CHS began, but was incorporated into CHS when it got underway.
Perhaps I will go back and do this one day. If anyone has detailed information they can always post it here to make the job easier...
