Ground combat at Rabaul -

Allies 22 factors -2 DRM
Japan 6 factors


285 6/21/2020 1:01:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message Hi Jeff - just a couple of things -

I show that you have 81 factors present at BHE - so you should get to assign 41 points of damage

The US gets a +1 DRM for air naval in 1943, so the 2 becomes a 3, which is half damage - I have 30 points total to assign

And finally the Army Corps moved overland to Rabaul, so there was no AA to turn back. There will be ground combat

Stand by and I'll have the file updated shortly
