War in the Pacific

Part 1185: Operational Report: 05/03/45

We start the day turning away another raid on our shipping.

Another tanker is added to our list, and two more will follow in a few weeks.

In the afternoon, the tankers are gone, but we make the destroyer pay.

The escort carriers feel left out, so they sink a minelayer.

That's a few more ships lined up on the kill board – which always makes me happy. Although we lose another of our ships to long term damage.

The Enterprise and co are heading back to pearl. This will give me six fleet carriers to support Operation Reef.

Also going back to our doctrinal conversation, I just saw this.
