Using their ships for support the Japs have been slowly pushing the Allied forces northward and I've flown in some anti-ship aircraft and I've been picking off a ship here and a ship there and several have been sunk over the last five turns or so. So I'm optimistic that I can delay the Japs for a long time in this AO. That doesn't rule out the possibility of Karl invading directly at Calcutta and I wouldn't be surprised if he does that. Karl has cleared out the island of Sumatra and now Java is vulnerable. Also, Ceylon is open to invasion. I'm thinking of moving the Commonwealth ships back to the SW India area just for insurance. Or at least a couple of anti-ship aircraft. And a fighter or two. The AVG got dissolved back in July ( it's August 30, 1942 now ) and Allied seaborne forces, Marines, have been delivered to the New Ireland island chain and are ready for invasion somewhere. The problem is that I don't have enough CV's to protect my ships yet. I figure I need another two CV groups to have enough airborne Wildcats to prevent my ships from getting hit. I'll be getting some long-range P-38's in T41 and their range is 48 which may be far enough to base them on some nearby islands to help CAP the ships invading somewhere. That's only a couple of turns from now. I'll have to try that.
