Moluccas and the Sundas and the Rosensteins

Ternate seemed to have no SCTF but rather some AO's and AK's so I sent a CL/DD force to raid at night and drop some HE on the AF. PT's boats first.

Maybe 50 B-24 sorties over Namlea right into the teeth of the KB CAP. We shoot down 55 Zekes but lose about 18 B-24's. Hurts to lose B-24's because the 4 to 1 but killing B Zeke jockeys is of value.
