South Seas HQ for 7

1) 26AF from Ulithi to Admiralty Islands. He is attacking Hollandia (Battle A). This should put 19LRB out of supply and eliminate his ZOI.
2) [19 Army] Sarong to Vogelkop.
3)Yamato from Eniwetok to Hollandia, Battle A. By card bonus 19LRB will be eliminated before your reaction move.
4&5) ED Army and Nagato and 2ASP from Truk to Biak. Battle B.
6) 23AF from Sarong joins Battle B at Biak.
7) 3SN strat move Guam to Truk.
All that can be done without entering an active air ZOI so I double my odds of getting surprise.

OC: 5 EC: 0

Message from Japanese:
With better planning this card would have been excellent. It almost seems like a waste just to save a step of infantry but play as event to cancel your little air raid. SEAC back to Akyab and you need to flip an Indian Corp (I'll assume you will flip 2Ind at Dacca).
Since there is nothing else you can do I'll draw my card then make my play.

Message from Japanese:
Great card at the wrong time. Not knowing what I should really do I'll use Comb Flt HQ for 6 and see if I can smoke out all of your submarine cards since the subs are already killing me.

All units will be attacking Saipan.
Junyo from Davao to 3511
Shokaku from Truk to 4114
Akagi from Tokyo to 3910
That should put Saipan OOS.
Yamato and Nagato from Kure to Saipan
21AF from Tainan to Guam (love the range on those guys)

That may seem like overkill but I really want that Marine air unit gone. Since I need everyone anyways if I get lucky and achieve surprise I won't even have to worry about a critical hit. So back to you for sub cards and other fun die rolls.
