Kendari: JJ has moved most of the naval bombers and fighters to Rabaul and the Solomons so we try raids on Kendari. B-17's from Koepang and B-24's from Darwin.

F4F's from Ende...marginally effective. We send Pow North of Timor for a possible naval bombardment of Kendaari tomorrow night.

Big mess of Japs east of Tavoy in the jungle. Little bastards are going to fight us all the way. We have more armour landing at Moulmein. Screw that. We will just drive down from Rahaeng and bypass them. See if we can siphon supply over the hills from Moulemin.

I told you, Choumein and Lomein are must better logistical bases than Moulmein. And they taste better, too.
But not as good as General Chao's Chicken Restuarant.

Well, to be honest, Thai food is better than Chinese food but General Chao's Chicken was invented in Brooklyn.

If your units are held up in the terrain 2 hexes west / NW of Bangkok and your single Brigade maneuvers to the clear hex with the dense red enemy LCU indicator, won't they be in danger of being, in turn, cut off from behind? What sort of IJ numbers are there in the hex 1 hex NW of Bangkok?

We do not have intel on the unit NW of Bangkok. Probably a Jap Regt or Brigade. We may have to hold up NW of Ayuthia. Of course, there is value in our threat. We also have to the trail North to Moulmein as an exit.

OK, the Marine SBD's squadrons that arrive Jan '43, is there no way to convert them to older planes to free-up some SBD's for the Navy pilots?

I don't have enough USMC pilots trained in dive bombing for the squadrons to be useful.

Cap,

Good Luck with PoW! One of my favorite ships in this game. I like some obscure ones as well, but PoW is pretty cool. I like it when she makes it past Jan '42.
