Morning Air attack on Merauke , at 89,124

- Merauke was an oversight I had better defended it, it will become a thorn in the future I am sure - so I get some (not particular strong) air forces in place to at least harrass the place. The Frank vs. P39 is an easy win for us...even if they flew at extended range. I note also Allied planes flying long distance to sweep and rarely if at all lose planes to ops (if not engaged)

Weather in hex: Clear sky

Raid spotted at 14 NM, estimated altitude 30,000 feet.
Estimated time to target is 3 minutes

Japanese aircraft
Ki-84a Frank x 31

Allied aircraft
P-39D Airacobra x 25

No Japanese losses

Allied aircraft losses
P-39D Airacobra: 8 destroyed

Aircraft Attacking:
18 x Ki-84a Frank sweeping at 30000 feet *

Morning Air attack on Shortlands , at 109,131

- While our airforces at Short and Toro stand down, more air action in India takes place:
- I sent 2 smaller brigades (4th ind. regiment 11th garisson) to combat the British 254th armor - but they are identified and promptly hit by air: I know those units are too weak to combat tanks but it is hoped the armor can be nuetralized by air over time..(?)

More of the same, except the KB takes a stab at Tabiteuea, again more from frustration and boredom as they find no targets on the seas, questionable if the fuel use is worth it... this turn 2 x Zero sweep and then next turn the bombers fly but weather also not the best. Kongos are detached to bombard...

The US sends a Fletcher surprise to Rabaul, but once in while even the IJN is alert and hits something, we need to wait for the first SS radar ships going online and hope this improves situation

... but the other ships all escape. A good AO lost to sub. Sweeps over Cuttack ongoing we did not contest so far, but might in a day or 2 - maybe we guessed right when the bombers come
