War in the Pacific

Part 493: Operational Report: 13/04/43

More Betty's make a heavy strike on the Gasmata airfield.

We get confirmed reports of the Akagi, Rujo and Kaga attacking Eniwetok.

One of our forces in Burma advances before the main units, and gets wiped out for its trouble.

Kiangtu continues to see heavy losses for the Japanese, they can't take these levels of squad losses for much longer.

The only thing or real interest today is the confirmation of three carriers in the Marshalls, but I doubt they will come any closer in than Eniwetok, they don't know what fighter units I have there.

The Wasp's Hellcats have been delivered, but only 5 of them are operational so far, another couple of days should see them all ready for a quick test around Rabaul.
