Part 527: Operational Report: 17/05/43
The Shanghai Express goes out in force, thirty six bombers and some fighter support.
And cause no damage. Figures.
Our forces at Hwaiyin are forces to fall back, but the main force will still be moving up to engage this force.
At Sinyang, our casualties continue to be high, but we now have the supplies here to continue the assault, while the Japanese are in trouble still.
There is more fighting over Cox's Bazar. It does not go well for us as the Japanese get the better of our fighters.
We do better with the next wave, but its still disappointing.
The Chilliwack savages a Japanese sub, claiming a massive eight hits.
Not much happened today, I'll give the Shanghai express one more day at bombing Hwaiyin before making the most of these supplies to hit Nagasaki with our full strength for once.
We lost 300 points as the base points dropped heavily. It looks like I'm not going to be able to keep them for long.
I also get a new toy.
A new fleet carrier. I must be my Birthday!
