Part 610: Operational Report: 08/08/43
It seems that we have yet to shut down the Hollanda airfield, and we take some more damage.
So this time, we try a little harder.
While the ground forces make their advances.
RUN YOU FOOL!
Over a hundred fighters - I shouldn't have made that crack about the balance of power shifting a few days ago.
This raid skips another fighter sweep of 78 planes the Japanese have moved masses of fighters into the region it seems.
The Express seems to be getting a good few planes into the air at the moment.
We take out another unit near the coast.
We lose a couple more ships, but hitting Hollanda should start to have some effect tomorrow. After it is reduced, we shall switch back to Truk for a week or so before preparing for the invasion.
