Welcome aboard, so far we are going slowly. The fight is at Singers, I fear what the forts are going to be when I finally get there!

Yeah. It is almost like Andy wants Japan to lose or something.

50th Sentai heavily engaged in and around Kuala Lumpur. Pulling them back for some rest, their morale is good even going against Hurricanes. Probably should have had them at 10,000 and the Zeroes at 15K.

The Zeroes at Kuala Lumpur. What a wonder plane, for now. Needs a new leader now... Or maybe not, be fun to play with a 90 inspiration commander for a bit.

Would that leader be goon in a training squadron? Banzai!

Feb 1, 1942

Wasted a fair bit of fuel here...fruitlessly looking for American Shipping.

First week of Feb 1942

High drama, as the BB Texas and CA Swayback sortie with lots of destroyers in an attempt to rescue a large merchant convoy with the goal of resupplying Luzon.

The convoy is finally chased down and destroyed, CA from Fifth Carrier Divison, the Battleship Division (3BB) and three smaller squadrons, I and R boats and one of the CVE CS carrier divisions were involved in the chase, but now the Texas looms. IJN intelligence leads us to believe the Texas is a WW1 battlewagon, but the Swayback is unknown.

Fifth Carrier Division, with nothing larger than destroyers, is looking to hit more shipping around the Marshalls.

KB is escorting the Balikpapen Invasion Force...

Brunei will fall in a day or two...

Malacca will fall in a day or two...the march to Singapore continues after heavy fighting in Malacca.

Manila will be besieged in a day or two...

If I remember correctly, the Swayback was actually the USS Saint Paul.

The USS Salt Lake City was nickednamed Old Swayback, but the USS Saint Paul did play John Wayne's "Old Swayback" in the movie In Harms Way.

Then there are these bad girls.

Japan is really struggling with search planes. The inability to reassign restricted units and resize air units really hurts quite badly. The upside is there is a strong air force in Honshu if comprised mostly of older air frames.

And Kirk Douglas is the Rabbi Chaplin . . .

He did conduct services on the USS Saint Paul.

Multiple Invasion Fleets...this one headed for Makin?

Seacats! Another secret American weapon! Wait, how can American merchantmen carry so many troops? We are not in Kansas anymore!

I think when the Q ship Cleburne was sunk, we destroyed 24 Seacats, but this is our first air to air encounter with the little devils. Speedy!

I bet dollars to donuts that the sinking of the Cleburne by Iboat robbed the Tarawa Invasion force of their air cover. Could have been a totally different outcome but for that fortuitous encounter.

Plane r&d.

Merchant shipping shutoff along with a Nate factory. Can't keep up with naval builds.

I'm pretty sure that Rockwell Torrey is in the game as a either a ship CO or a task force commander

Texas and Swayback are gone...hiding somewhere. Admittedly Japanese search and recon is weak in this area. It will be a cat and mouse game. Nagato and company to the east and the Carrier Divisions 1 & 2 to the west.

The better AMC's are heading here to help setup a patrol around the Philippines so no future convoy can get so close. Not sure that really matters on very hard, but it just makes great sense for better interior warding in case something slips thru the glaring cracks in my perimeter. So here is a novel use of them, at least for me.

What to do. Fifth Carrier Division lost two dozen planes, but the Pemberton must go down. Perhaps the three hits she took this day are enough to cancel flight operations?

But then there is Tarawa to worry about, too.
