Well, it's been a while, but the game still goes on; it's just past Christmas Day, 1941, and the better part of the Australian navy (HMAS Australia, Perth, Adelaide, and Voyager) are all resting beneath the waves at or around Rabaul, where an undermanned IJN landing force holds on tenaciously whilst awaiting reinforcement. My old 12-gun dreadnoughts have sortied in and out of these waters multiple times (that's how all but Adelaide bit it), and for the moment, I appear to have sea control of the area.
There has been heavy fighting off Borneo, with a task force centered around Boise wiped out to a man, one IJN heavy cruiser (Maya, I think) in drydock for repairs, and several smaller ships sunk by the Prince of Wales and Repulse, both of which were torpedoed by IJN a/c flying from Saigon and Borneo. Neither is sunk, but they seem to be in bad shape and have retreated to the southeastern port of the island. Houston has also taken a torp, and Tromp appears to have sunk after eating one a ways back. My teeny-tiny carriers have done yeoman service here, their air attacks breaking up some surface groups before they could engage.
The British are holding on in Malaysia. I have a foothold all along the eastern side of the Peninsula, but my advance seems to have stalled a little. I am still hopeful that I can seize Singapore by the go date.
The Phillipines are sluggishly moving along, but they're so damn boring it's hard to remember to do anything there. I wish I could sink the whole chain of islands into the sea.
