I'm hoping to get it up there today while I'm on the desk.

Then again, yesterday I pulled in over $20 in tips for slinging beer at folks :)

(my tip money has turned into my game budget - $15-20/day for 2-3 days/week isn't too bad)

My first CA-ARNG tank battalion was on Corrigedor when it fell.  We had Bataan survivors attend all of our formal functions.

The guidon hanging in our BN conference room was from C/194th, and was kept hidden from the Japanese the entire time they were held in Bataan, and they brought it home from the war with them.

You nailed the Pitch Meeting exchange but forgot to include the fact that "Aircraft carriers are tight!"  :bigthumb:
Great AAR!

This is getting TENSE. Sun Tsu would be proud of the way the Japs are coming at you from different directions with different forces.

Sun Tzu was a pug. A Chinese Pug, as are all the really good ones. Never buy a French Pug, they're really just Poodles that fart a lot. Sun Tzu told me that.

Dang, a lot of moving parts to keep track of (both friendlies and enemies).  Looks good, though. 


Query:  Does the AI adjust its plans and/or respond to your moves at all?  Does it largely try to follow the historical battle plan(s)?

Congrats on the win Airboy! That was so close I got water splashed on me from that last Jap bomb run.  :bigthumb:

Congrats on the victory!  I'm a little surprised they didn't withdraw after you sunk the invasion fleet.

Kind of makes me want to fly a campaign in the Cactus Air Force somewhere. :bigthumb: IL-1946 perhaps? Anything else on modern(ish) systems?

Anyone know of any good books focusing on establishment, operations, and life at that special-ops airbase on New Georgia?

It's been a very long time, but Martin Caidin's Ragged, Rugged Warriors covered this period pretty thoroughly.

“Commander Skull” is my nickname given by fresh scout pilots. There are no experienced scout pilots – only the dead. The sole surviving scout pilot was given a medical discharge for insanity. Scout pilots don “red shirts” for some reason.

Haha, nice.  :bigthumb: 


Referencing a comment you made in the the post-analysis, why *didn't* you then send the carriers with TF-UFO South?  Was it because you already knew that it would work, and wanted to see what a riskier/more aggressive approach might accomplish?
