237 5/23/2022 9:05:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message I've read, re-read, and doublechecked the rules. AA rules are a complete trainwreck for me, and the rules I was reading off of GMT's website had a previous Progress of War list. Thought I had to grab 5 hexes last turn, which is why I wrote it off.

Units listed with marker B are supporting the landing at Koepang, but I am not declaring it a Battle Hex.

Battle A, at Makassar, has the support of 2MAW, Enterprise, and Washington.

Over to you for rolling. No changes.
