I'm really rough on scout planes and scouting destroyers.

Part 3 is up.
https://averysgameblog.wordpress.com/2019/03/05/coral-sea-part-3/

I took 130+ screen shots just to remind me of what happened when I had the time to write it up.  This battle was so complicated I'll probably use close to 50 screenshots.

This update takes us up to turn 13.  The Jap troop ships have finally been spotted and it will be hard to sink them.

Wow, you are hugging the left map edge there!

You weren't kidding about this being a nail biter! (As was Coral Sea historically, too, among several other actions in the area.)

Looks like the 'Coral Sea' is about to turn red. Can't watch. :hide:

This was a very narrow shave for the Allied forces.

This was a very narrow shave for the Allied forces.

And then the surviving Imperial forces sail into the harbor with all guns trained on the town, and...  >:D

An amazing fight, in real life and in the game: congratulations!

Congrats on the decisive victory there Airboy.  :bd:   Do the Japanese have anything left to fight with?

Guadalcanal Part 1 is up:
https://averysgameblog.wordpress.com/2019/03/15/guadalcanal-scenario-7-order-of-battle-ww2-us-pacific-campaign/

This is a very long (50 turn) scenario.  The first part of Guadalcanal discusses my strategy and how the different objectives are possible at different points in the 50 turn scenario.  I've played this scenario at least 8 times and my strategy works well - at least at this difficulty level.

Guadalcanal Part 3 is Up.

https://averysgameblog.wordpress.com/2019/03/19/guadalcanal-part-3/

The Japs launched a massive attack.  If the Marines defeat the attack, the rest of the ground combat will be mopping up.

Hell-of-a defensive stand Airboy. Leonidas would be proud.  O0
