I seriousry exprored the "Port Hueneme gambit". I figure Japan-mens could have regimental randing at Port Hueneme and Newport Beach in about 18-19 d. Then we crose in on the Santa Monica pier from the North and brow up all the oil stuff on Signal Hill and Long Beach. Maybe stop-ah to take pictures at Growman's Chinese and then get Herr out of-ah there.

Of course, if American-mens send boy scouts to Ros Angeres then pran not-ah work.

A Japanese landing in Los Angeles would likely be a strategic defeat (because of all the emergency reinforcements) but it would an entertainment gold mine.

How about an air base on Catalina to shut down LA and San Diego. The Arries would have to attack with unrestricted units to clear Catalina. Not sure where Japan-mens ships would get suppries.

If not Catalina, perhaps then Cristobol closing the entry to the Pacific?

But would the emergency reinforcements be restricted? i.e. otherwise a supply drain and a material/armaments drain as they get up to full speed?

Amphibious landings at Mersing, Kendari and Rabaul go well.

Landing at Naga goes sluggishry. Curiousry, the SNLF stays on the boats while the air support troops happiry disembark.
I think we will have to suspend landing for a day lest one of the USN cruisers shows up before adequate surface forces arrive.
Probabry the security forces with the ground support troops can take the base tomorrow.

Where will Force Z go? Singers for air cover? Malacca Strait? For both of those options the BB's at Mersing might be able to intercept the no damaged PoW

More likely toward Batavia.

Kaga still has half her torpedo loadout.

Another potential escape route for PoW is out to the Indian Ocean via the strait between Java and Sumatra. However, after 5 or 6 bomb hits, PoW may be slowed. Quite an intersting situation.

What results have people had with a 2nd day of attacks at Pearl?

I am leaning toward allowing the KB to be spotted headed westward then shaking the tail and head SSW to be used as the hammer as we try to bait in the USN carriers to go after transports now headed to Noumea, Fiji, Pago Pago and Canton.

Atacks at Kendari, Naga and Rabaul tomorrow.
