My primary objective is protecting the Henderson Field airstrip. The four secondary objectives are: raid Tenaru; raid Matanikau; destroy 5 Japanese aircraft and protect both construction groups. The construction groups are one bulldozer unit close to Henderson Field and one Seabees unit in the North coastal area. Both are weak and immobile.

There is a lot of ground to defend and holding the airfield is critical. Initially I have only one fighter unit. I attached truck or half-tracks to most of the Marine infantry. My initial forces had one Lee tank.

Turn 10 finds me in dire shape. The Japanese coordinated attacks from the East and West. Fortunately, the Marines received major reinforcements. Without those reinforcements I would have lost Henderson Field.
