War in the Pacific

by Grey Hunter

Part 648: Operational Report: 15/09/43

It looks like the bulk of the Japanese carriers are now working in the Indian Sea. One of our supply convoys runs into them.

They run into another one around dawn.

Oddly enough, we don't see any air attacks from these units. This surprises me no end.
Rangoon sees more enemy units destroyed.

The Betties attack the Hollandia forces once more.

And we take out the airfield at Hollandia that little bit more.

We also turn back a raid on Aitape from the Vals.

We then bomb the airfield they come from – note the submarine to the north has detected another convoy.

This does not stop some of their Betties making an attempt on some of our ships.

They have more Vals, and we get hit.

And again in the afternoon. This base needs to go down.

At Truk we take some heavy losses.

Marcus Island comes under attack once more.

They of course get butchered.

Wait a second, - op mode? They landed troops in strategic mode?

While we lost a number of ships today. It could have been a hell of a lot worse if those carriers had been more active.
I'm planning for the invasion of Mandang, and should get some troops there in the next week. Lets hope its not to heavily defended.
