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.

Last episode, I had counter-attacked in the North along the coast with a coordinated attack towards the center of the Island after taking Tenaru. The Japanese received even more reinforcements. One Japanese column almost got to Henderson Field.
