Part 726: Operational Report: 02/12/43
The Betties take a crack at Hollandia, trading a few planes for a few hits.
We get some form of a damage report from Biak for a change.
I'm going to have to halt the peicemeal bombing of Truk, we just can't get through this many fighters we need to cut the island off somehow!
We're not going to be seeing the Express any time soon methinks.
The Japanese make another attack at Kaifeng, and lose another unit. I only worry is the stack from the south is on its way north.
Hence I have the Haichow force marching north taking bases as they go of course, Suchow is now ours again.
Akyab comes under attack once more.
I need to figure out what to do about the Marianas islands, as the current strategy is not going to work.
Any suggestions appreciated.
