Part 1139: Operational Report: 18/01/45
We invade Legaspi this time with combat troops!
The Japanese try for the Enterprise again, but only throw away a load more planes.
They try for the invasion force in the afternoon. Two planes make it through the CAP, and of course, one of those hits a CVE.
Our tanks south of Davao are backed up with infantry now, so their assault does a lot more damage to the weakened Japanese forces.
A poor day for us over Maebashe only 18,000 fires.
The Japanese throw themselves at our men once more, but all they can do is take out a tank. They are weakening themselves before my main assault. Its helpful!
The first division reaches Rahaeng, but needs to rest up before making any more attacks the second division should be arriving in a day or two.
So we have a proper force ashore now, so lets see what we can do at Legaspi.
