Message from Japanese:
Ground Battle at Wake Island. Now I have +2 for Air Superiority, and +2 for Naval Superiority. With no terrain modifier that means I will automatically eliminate the marines by scoring at least 6 hits.

However the Marines have +3 for defending against AA in their hex. It's quite likely they will score a hit against the SS Brigade.
17 4/17/2019 9:44:00 AM December 1941 Japanese Message A/N Battle at Wake Island. Battle G. This one is Auto-Win for Japan they have 12 strength from the cruiser and 5 for the extended range 24 AF for 17 points. They will score at least 9 points which is enough to eliminate the marine air squadron (VF-211)
16 4/17/2019 9:41:00 AM December 1941 Japanese Message A/N Battle at Tarakan. Battle F. The Japanese have 16 strength points and will score at least 8 with the surprise modifier (+3). This battle is Auto-Win for Japan and they sink the DD US Asia.

Message from Japanese:
A/N Battle at Davao. The Japanese have 20 factors which means they will at least get 10 hits even if I roll a zero, that's enough to reduce the M Corps. I'll just roll the ground battle. Since M corps reduced has just 1 strength point it can't damage the invaders no matter what else happens.

Ground Battle E at Davao. Modifiers as follows: Terrain -2, Air Superiority (+2), Naval Superiority (+2)

J: 13 (+2)
14 4/17/2019 9:35:00 AM December 1941 Japanese Message 3+3=6. A 1x Result for 12 hits. Enough to sink the Cruiser.

I won't roll here because it's a Japanese Auto-Win. It doesn't matter what Japan rolls I will cause at least 5 hits and 1 step loss while HK can't hurt the 17th Army even with a 2x result.
