290 3/31/2019 Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message I was looking at that and I have asked Mark to check.

I believe that we have to hit one of the BB's.

A CH circumvents F. 2., but not F. 4. We cannot hit any of the air because we have no air in the battle. I do not think the CH allows us to ignore that. We have to hit one of your units with the lowest defense strength "that can receive the hits". That is probably one of the BB's.

I think we should wait for Mark's ruling.
289 3/30/2019 11:49:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Also, I think you have to sink the CV, as that is our weakest and you only have 10 CS?
