War in the Pacific

by Grey Hunter

Part 748: Operational Report: 24/12/43

Clunk! Dammit!

The Betties return to Hollandia, and we deal with them as always.

Our carriers are in the right place to pick up a couple of enemy task forces, one, which may well be a supply convoy, is hit hard.

The next has some big gun support, which is also crippled.

A large number of Betties attack Marcus island, and for some reason, our fighters do not get into the air this time – leading to heavy damage on the island.

We take another city off the Japanese in China, undefended.

The loss of those planes on Marcus island outweighs the damage we just did to their ships in the DEI. Plus our bloody base points dropped again.

Although I must say that looks nice.

I also have fixed up the two wounded carriers and they are heading north, this will support the next wave of invasions. With the Valiant as well.
