Play prior to one battle of the Offensive that is within 11 hexes of Tokyo (3706) and within extended range of a Japanese air unit. The Japanese player eliminates two Allied naval steps (Japanese player's choice, may not eliminate a unit unless there is no other option), while reducing the Japanese air unit whose range was used one step (even if this would eliminate the air unit). No more than one Kamikaze per battle, but more than one Kamikaze per offensive is allowed. Draw One Strategy Card. Remove from play if used as an event.

140 9/20/2019 12:26:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message wow, definitely some weird rolls in this one. I also realized you played this as OC but the intercept roll was still good.

US does 10 hits. Assume you flip 23AF

JP does 40 CH, eliminate CV Lexington and flip CV Wasp

I really have to question the randomness of this die roller. So I get 50% or 18 hits which flips both the Tenryu and 24AF. You get a return shot but with only 8 factors remaining you need a critical.

Will start with my Future Offensive card. By the text there is no response of any kind allowed, you just have to take it.

C Pac activates all 3 carriers who all sail to hex 4915. From there Kwajalein takes a pounding. All will then return to Efate. Since there is nothing you can do I will roll the attack and generate a log file showing everyone (who survives) in their finish positions.

110 9/13/2019 12:08:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Thank heavens for the -1. Both of us get 100%.

Brits score two hits which flip the two full strength Armies. For the JP it takes 28 to flip everyone leaving 19 to eliminate the 1B and one of the other three units so that will be your choice. You pick the retreat space, both are legal.

For PBM does emergency move to Colombo. Indomitable and Warspite go to Dacca. [SEAC air] stays at Akyab.

Since I only ended up with two units changing position (SEAC flips and moves, 6 Chinese moves) and you still need to do your PBM I won't bother sending a log file.

Can't complain too much when you get the two Ambush cards in the first two hands. This is probably my best chance to do serious damage so Rochefort will share his intel with the British.
SEAC will activate 4 units;
Indomitable, Warspite, SEAC air and [6 Chinese Army].
Warspite and [6 CA] into Rangoon others fight from range. That give me 36 attack factors (including Hermes) firing first with a +4DRM (which was not enough last time).

[19 LRB] to Hollandia

Reinforcements as follows by location:
Cairns- S Pac HQ, 5AF

54 9/7/2019 10:57:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Thanks. I won't change my last move so back to you. I will correct the location of [28 Army] on my board. I just can't follow the action on a computer screen so I only use the Vassal to record finished positions. My limited understanding of all features of Vassal is why I don't usually pay any attention to the who controls which space markers.
