The US gets some CVEs early too - I think all four of the Sangamon arrive early.


In DBB Sangamon and sisters (except Santee) arrive Dec 15 1942 at Balboa, which is consistent with them leaving the Torch area in mid-November 1942 for overhaul at Norfolk and their arrival at New Caledonia on January 4th, 1943.

However, the arrival date for Santee is wrong, the game has her arriving at Tacoma on May 22, 1943 - at that time she was based at Norfolk for ASW duty in the Atlantic. She transited the Panama Canal for Pacific duty on 18–19 February 1944.

While at it, there a really extreme cases of early arrivals - the Balao class submarine USS Ling for example enters the game on December 15, 1943 - in fact she was commissioned only on June 8th 1945 and never made a war patrol!

There are days I wonder how long it would take to go through DANFS for every USN ship commissioned before the end of the war and note down when she entered the Pacific (and left, for those that did). Then there are days I say "someone on this forum must have already done that and made a spreadsheet... right?"

Take a look at Spooky's site. There's a huge amount of data there, including lots of downloadable excel spreadsheets. There may be one or two which have the arrival date info you are looking for.

Gridley380, I would love to get hold of such a spreadsheet as well.

As it is, while going through DANFS I correct the data directly in the editor.

But it is possible to dump the scenario files into .csv files via the witploadae.exe tool in order to obtain a spreadsheet.

That said, DANFS does not always gives exact dates and or locations in the AE sense i.e. where and when a vessel is entering the map, so guesstimates must be made working backwards / forward from available information.

I also found DANFS to be incomplete - the entries for USS Plaice (SS-390) and USS Trutta (SS-421) for example are missing - both saw service in the PTO.
