791 3/20/2019 4:29:00 AM May-Aug 1944 Japanese Message I don't think any surface ship can make it to Soeul. To get through between Kyushu and Shikoku you have to zig-zag -> 3408, 3407, 3307, 3306 and you can't get to Soeul from 3406. So there's not enough movement points on this card from even Saipan.

You want me to go ahead with that BB not included, or make a change?
