Its 0745, you've got your pants half-on, half-off, a gorgeous brunette with a great figure is doing her best to turn the metaphorical comparison of Japanese beauty with cherry blossoms into a literal one and your leg and head and fucking everything hurt hurt HURTS.

Also, you have a few hours to plan a major carrier battle that might significantly effect the battle for the Pacific. It's going to be One Of Those Days.

As Yamato continues to turn a lovely shade of pink, face hidden behind her hands, the door opens to reveal a rumpled, harried Wainwright tapping a clipboard against one thigh and carrying a five-foot long breaker bar over his left shoulder.

“Naaah.....” his voice trails off as he takes in the scene. “I. Uh. I'm interrupting-” he stops halfway through turning to leave and swivels back to face you, his hand flexing on the breaker bar. “Wait, where the hell is Naka?”

“Uhm,” you begin.

“What the hell are you doing with all these girls?” Wainwright demands, tapping the breaker bar against his shoulder as he catches sight of Yamato's pastel panic.

So let me get this straight.

Arizona is a standard-type battleship.

Nevada was the first standard type, with the Colorado's being the final ones.

Does that mean that all of the standard type ships from Nevada until Colorado will look similar to Arizona, just with minor differences?

We get an entire fleet of small chested, fragile looking BB girls?

how the fuck does this work?

You stare blearily at Wainwright, trying to process the oil-stained jeans combined with the half-buttoned dress shirt. “Uh. You. Wainwright.”

He glowers. “Very good. Now where the hell is my patient?”

You jerk your thumb at the bed, where Arizona is clinging tightly to the little blanketed bundle that is Naka. Wainwright studies the fuzzy cocoon before turning a quizzical look upon you.

“Long story,” you say fuzzily. “Listen, you think-”

“And who's Miss Cardiac Arrest here?” he says, tilting his head at Yamato, who seems to be in the process of smothering herself as you fumble to buckle your pants.

“Uh, that's kind of class-”

The hefty breaker bar comes down on the padded seat of the guest chair hard enough to make it bounce.

“-AMATO MISS YAMATO HOLD FIRE CHILL OUT Jee-sus,” you snap back. “Just don't tell anyone or Yamato - I mean Goto will - I-” you grab your head in both hands and take a deep, stabilizing breath, trying not to cry. “Wainwright, my leg and head and everything is hurting like a motherfucker so if they let you into the medication cabinet, I'm begging you, *get me something.*”

He does a decent impression of a fish for a few seconds - and then sighs, sagging as he does so. “Yeah, sure. Just... wait here.”

You manage to get most of your underclothes on by the time he gets back - uniform slacks and undershirt. Your uniform jacket is so rumpled and dirty that you can't bear to put it on. Wainwright returns in a few minutes with two pills and a plastic cup. “Here,” he says, dumping the pills into your hand. He's opening the door to the bathroom before you can call out a warning. He's met with a truly rousing shriek of terror followed by something impacting the door with Toyota-tier impetus, sending him reeling within an ace of being knocked on his ass.

He blinks. “Uh-”

“N-N-NEVER W-W-W-ALK IN ON A L-L-LADY!” Yamato stammers through the door.

“Uh... all due respect, lady, you're fully dressed and-”

You just pop the big pills in your mouth and manage to dry-swallow them painfully down your parched throat, wincing as the huge oblong bastards gouge their way down your gullet. Wainwright turns a sidelong glance at you, pointing to the door and mouthing 'really?'

You shrug and shake your head, deciding to change the topic to something more fathomable. “Uh, what's with the breaker bar?”

“Classified,” he sniffs.

“Ship-girl maintenance?” You raise an eyebrow. “Fixing a tire? Gonna change her oil, too?”

“You're the one using your dipstick, from the looks of it,” Wainwright shoots back with a glare.

You snort, massaging your head as you wait for the painkillers to kick in. “A little protective, are we?”

“Says the guy who almost got his arms pulled off and beaten to death with 'em becu-”

“THANK, YOU, MARINE,” you say, pauses loaded with sarcasm. “But seriously, just what the hell does Naka have that you're gonna crank with that thing?”

Wainwright opens his mouth - then bites his lip. “That was low,” he mutters as he relaxes his grip and lets a thousand great penis jokes fly away untold.

“I've got my own marine to practice on,” you explain. “So what's with it?”

He smirks at you. “Admiral, you're the first one with the balls to ask.” He seems amused by this. “It's not a breaker bar. It's a sleepy stick. Lay it up someone's head, they take a nap.” He pulls up his untucked shirt to reveal the blued butt of an M9 in a crossdraw holster tucked against his belly. “Maybe a long nap.”

You squint at him. “Still worried?”

“As you should be,” he retorts. “Naka keeps giving her bodyguard the goddamned slip, and once she's discharged it'll be damn near impossible.”

“How close *is* she to being discharged?”

“Eh,” he says, waggling his hand up and down in midair. “It's not like her keel was broken, but she was basically gutted damn near to the waterline where those torpedoes blew. She can walk around okay - even thinks she's hiding the pain, little shitbird - and she doesn't technically need a hospital bed anymore, but I'm keeping her here for observation. Make sure her bandages are changed regularly, so she doesn't get an infection or anything.”

You lean back in the guest chair, enjoying its abundant comfyness. “How long will she be in ordinary, you think?”

His expression takes a set like concrete. “Four to five weeks, I should think. They heal fast, but she needs a *lot* of structural reinforcement.”

You give him a long, searching stare, just long enough to convey that you think he's lying to your face, then nod slowly. “You're the expert,” you state, and leave it at that. “Now, uh-” you tap your head. “How long am *I* in ordinary?”

Wainwright shrugs helplessly. “I was a medic, Admiral. This brain surgery shit is beyond me. Why don't we see your doctor?”

“Lead on.”

Wainwright leads you at a considerately slow gait to the office of your surgeon, who sits you down and calls you a raving fucking moron for not seeking immediate medical attention when you first started to suffer headaches. You think about your little constellation of orbiting headache-inducers, starting with Hate and ending with Hate, for he is the alpha and omega of Pains In Your Skull, and snicker. This does not endear the doctor to you. He explains that the surgery was thankfully simple and quick, as such things go, but until the little capillaries in your brain heal up you need to take it easy, cut down on the caffeine and above all, keep your blood pressure down.

This last bit inspires a giggle that starts a landslide. Wainwright helps you limp out of the room as you wail with laughter, pursued by the Dark Terrible Stare of the Physician Scorned. He helps you as far as the guest lobby before pausing.

“I ought to get back up there,” he says apologetically, clearly not wanting to leave Naka unguarded for too long. “Think you'll be okay?”

“I'll bully a Sergeant into giving me a ride,” you tell him.

“Call someone,” he says. “The doc wasn't kidding when he said you need an escort; you might not be steady on your feet for a day or two. And if you keel over a-”

“I'll press my fucking life-alert button so the nice big lads in the white coats will come and fix my fucking hip,” you say, shoving him good-naturedly. “Get the fuck out of here, Marine.”

Wainwright snorts, and gets. You hobble into the lobby to find none other than Corporal Hate asleep in one of those awful little guest chairs, head lolling against the wall behind him, fast asleep. He's wearing only an OD green tank top, his uniform shirt covering Hornet, who's lying with her body across four chairs, head pillowed on Hate's lap.

You turn and look out the glass doors of the base hospital to see thirty-odd corgis sitting and staring at Hate woefully, their sad, soulful eyes begging for breakfast. Once you open that door the horde will be unleashed, and your quiet escape spoiled. Best to take the bull by the horns.

We should check in with Shoukaku, but Hornet deserves an apology as well. Besides, I think Shoukaku's the carrier most likely to get along with Hornet and help her integrate better with the other Jap carriers.

>She returned to Japan in early 1943. That June, one of her aft magazines detonated while she was at anchor, sinking the ship with the loss of 1,121 crew and visitors. The IJN conducted a perfunctory investigation into the cause of her loss and concluded that it was the work of a disgruntled crewmember. The navy dispersed the survivors in an attempt to conceal the sinking in the interest of morale in Japan.

Just re-read that story, still amazes me.

Iowa turret debacle in a nutshell for those who don't know the story:

>Iowa guns deteriorating from lack of maintenance, all gunnery exercises cancelled because they are considered too dangerous
>Hey, hey navy, can we fix these broke ass guns so we don't all die? LOL NOPE take that million bucks and fix the engines instead
>Two officers get a bright idea, "hey lets overload these guns with stronger powder than they were designed for so we can shoot farther!"
>Navy middle management gives them the go ahead without consulting or informing superiors
>Turret 1 carries out experiment without incident, but the officer in charge refuses to cooperate with further tests
>They use Turret 2 instead, gun misfires during experiment, almost kills entire turret crew as the powder ignites BEFORE the breech is closed.
>Several months later perform a new exercise, decide to use 44 year old powder bags to fire a heavier shell than they are designed for. They also use 5 bags instead of the standard 6 which no one ever trained for and the gun is not designed for.
>It's even printed right on the bags saying NOT to do that
>Center gun misfires with breech open, the explosion kills all 47 men in the turret, only the 12 men down in the powder magazine survive
>Damage control reports the inside of the turret is glowing red hot, flood entire turret with water to put out the fire
>All bodies are removed without recording location or cause of death
>Damaged equipment is thrown overboard
>The scene of the crime is cleaned and repainted.

Official navy verdict on the accident: A GAY GUY DID IT, HE WAS BUTTMAD AND DELIBERATELY SABOTAGED THE TURRET.

(They later threw that out and had someone else investigate. Coming to the conclusion that the accident had happened because of poor training, improper usage and loading of old powder and the general broken ass condition of the gun and assorted machinery.)

You study the dreamland duo for a moment, thinking through your options in terms of what combination of psychotic marine and traumatized shipgirl is least likely to impede your duties as a United States Naval Officer today, and realize with a start that this is Goto's life. This is Goto's *existence.* Except he's not stuck with two devoted, sweet, self-blaming girls counterbalanced by Wee Willie Fuckup and Death Rides A DE. He has all that and more, plus Kongou, who alone throws the whole equation into a cocked hat.

Sixteen MONTHS of that shit. Christ.

No matter who gets stuck with Settle Support for the day, you can't walk out of here without letting these two know you're all right; not after they slept in the hospital lobby for your sake. You lean over and poke Hornet's cheek gently. She murmurs in her sleep and shuffles a little further under Hate's shirt, protecting herself from the dry chill of the AC vent overhead.

You snap your fingers over her face. “Up! Upsie-Daisy! Wake up! Reveille!” You even whistle reveille to no avail. “Way hay and up she rises! CHICKEN ARISE! C'MON!”

Hornet finally opens her eyes and blinks blearily. “Ahdmiral?”

“It's almost 0800 honey, time to wake up and smell the WAAA!” you yelp as Hornet fairly *pops* off the chairs; her whole body seeming to flex and jump airborne like a piece of flexed spring steel being released. Before you know what's happening, she's hugging you fiercely. You hear your spine pop as she squeezes several nasty kinks out of it just by gripping you - you start to worry when your heels lift off the floor.

She lets up the pressure a little bit, but keeps her arms cinched around you. “Are you okay?” she whispers.

“Doc says so, at least.”

“Good,” she says. Hornet's all lean, toned muscle; her slender figure just makes her seem tougher; like a sword blade that will bend rather than break. She rests her forehead atop your shoulder, holding you tightly. A wave of dizziness strikes you, forcing you to lean against her as you pat her back awkwardly.

“Hornet,” you begin, “I owe you an apology-”

She cuts you off by kissing you on the cheek.

“-about, the, day other, before in that I, uh.”

“I've got a lot to say too,” Hornet says, leaning back to look you in the eyes, her expression solemn and intense. “And...” she dispells her half-formed words with a subtle shake of her head. “Thank you. *Thank you,* Admiral. I've been waiting all night to say thank you.” She turns and ever-so-gently lowers you into a chair as the room seems to wobble and spin a bit. “We can talk about it after the operation.” You try to look up at her, but twitch your head and blink as her face seems to swim around in front of your eyes. You feel her small brown hand massaging your scalp affectionately, and for a minute you almost forget about your headache. “Is Arizona still upstairs?”

You make a sound that might've been an affirmative. “Ah doo belieeev dem viccerdinz are kikkin ihn,” you say woozily.

“Just rest here,” Hornet says. “I'll find a nurse. And I'll see to Arizona... and Hate, for that matter.”

You shake your head. “Jess, could you hep me outshide... Goto's... expecting me-”

“Admiral, if you were meant to pull all that weight alone, you would've been born a harbor tug.” She gives you one last pat and skips away to the desk, and a moment later you hear them paging for a nurse.
>>
>>40955752
Cause you know, it's tradition to break a bottle over the bow of newly launched ships. Which, when you think about it means that every USN shipgirl was at one point nearly naked and covered in wine. No wonder Arizona hides the history books.

Before you can steal a little more rack-time, Corporal Hate slumps against you, his arm falling across your shoulders companionably. “Aaaaaaaay skippa.”

“Hate,” you say, seizing your senses a little more firmly with an effort of will. “You... are drunk.”

“Cuzzah YOU,” he says, tapping your skull with his as aggressively as he can. “Inna dish hoshpital. Fhukkin hate hoshpitals.”

“Yeah,” you mutter. You spent plenty of time in one - and Hate, as well. “They suck.”

“The fhukkin... like... ish bullshit, yunno. Like dair ah'em and dakkadakka poppop watchin deez muddafuggaz drop and, aaay valhalla 'ere I cum muffafuggas.

“A razor?”

“That's shutpid, ur sthupid, y'listen here nigger,” he slurs into your ear companionably. “Ish dis tosh, so soft, all tiny and ghentl'n'shit, n, askin you, telln you, you die'n'me I dump youinnasheet with PUSSY written on it don't you, don't you go nowhere muffafugga, ur mine, dun you leave me alone, you're the... only one now...” he wiggles his head side-to-side like he's sifting the thoughts through a bullshit strainer. “Ish... ish errythin... y'know?”

“LYIN, LIKE, A ruuuuuuuuuuuuug ya dumb shit,” he opines, and passes out again.

Shoukaku comes to your rescue a little later, patiently explaining that the drugs they've pumped you full of to keep your blood pressure low combined with your lack of liquid intake has dropped your blood pressure a little too low. She keeps this chat up so effectively that you haven't noticed she's slipped an IV needle into your arm until after she's administered one to Hate as well. She leaves and returns with an entire carafe of coffee liberated from the staff break room and proceeds to feed it to Hate, who imbibes it in small sips while staring brazenly at her chest. You're just starting to feel steady again when Hornet comes back down the hallway.

“How are dey?” you manage.

“Hornet's brushing Naka's hair,” Hornet says.

You snort. “How she taking that?”

“She doesn't have a choice - Arizona won't let her get away.” She smiles, looking tremendously amused. “But I still can't get Yamato out of the bathroom.”

“... Yamato?” Shoukaku says, giving you a look that even her wondrous social warmth can't blunt.

“Yeah... to get that girl out, we're gonna need a door-breaching team-”

Hate snatches the carafe from Shoukaku's hands and tips it bottom-up. Everyone in the room, even the receptionist, watch in mute amazement as Hate chugs 3/4ths of a pot in one go, steam rising from his nostrils. He sets it aside and stands with exaggerated care, then gropes around for his cover. He perches the battered hat on his head, pushing it back and forth with both hands as he struggles to verify it's on straight before he notices the ceiling overhead and tosses it over his shoulder with disgust.

“HOOORNIT!” Hate chops his knife-hand through the air straight out before him. “MUSH!”

Shoukaku watches with a blank expression of wonder as Hornet leads him upstairs. “Where... where did you find him?”

“The pound,” you reply honestly.

Shoukaku helps you outside and flags down an unfortunate seaman to drive you both to your apartment, where she waits politely in the main room while you blunder through a hasty toilet. You emerge looking shipshape again - if nothing else, Annapolis teaches you how to clean yourself up perfectly while half-dead and a quarter-conscious. You toss the empty IV bag in the trash and shake some food into the fishbowl. The creature within seems to give you a narrow-eyed look before it deigns to eat, as if scolding you for neglecting it so long. Your “volunteer” driver ferries you to the administration building and roars off in his motor-pool jeep before you can change your mind and further disrupt his day.

“Admiral, do you mind if I ask you something?” Shoukaku says as she escorts you up the walk. She's keeping her hand on the inside of your elbow, letting you hobble unassisted, but ready to catch you if needed.

“Shoot.”

“Do you live... frugally?”

“Hell no,” you snort. “Just haven't had time to unpack. I've got boxes and boxes of shit down at the post office waiting for me to pick 'em up.”

“Oh,” Shoukaku says thoughtfully. “It... has been a rather fast introduction, hasn't it?”

The photos I've taken over the... er, last decade, are spread across three drives and the total size is well over four terabytes?

Somewhere, buried in this mess, are a fuckton of photos of the USS Massachusetts, USS Lionfish, USS Joseph P. Kennedy, and the Hiddensee (I think it's the only soviet corvette museum ship in the US).

Also they're spread across like 5 different camera bodies, and some of these are on film, like, camera film, film, for an extra "fuck you".

I'm kinda pissed really. There were really nice shots of Massachusetts in there and I've wasted two and a half hours searching to no avail today.

>Either it was touched off by one of the fires, or was set off by tumbling as the ship nosed forward, but at 1408 an aerial bomb on the hangar deck forward exploded. Immediately the volatile gases that had been accumulating below were ignited, and the Shokaku was rent by an ominous grumble deep down inside. This was followed by a truly devastating cacophony of "four terrific explosions" followed by several smaller ones as the forward bomb and torpedo magazines were touched off. In a prolonged convulsion of three minutes the Shokaku literally began to blow apart at the seams.
>The men gathered aft were caught completely off-guard--they had assumed they had several minutes to evacuate; in reality they now had only seconds. They were sent tumbling and sliding down the flight deck as Shokaku's shattered bow plunged under the waves. Water surged over and across the flight deck and poured in a torrent through the open No.1 elevator into the hangar. The inrush yanked the stricken carrier downward, causing her fantail to rear terrifyingly and suddenly into the sky.
>Screaming and frantically trying to grab anything to hold onto, the mass of humanity on Shokaku's flight deck aft slid down the incline to their deaths and a "fiery hell" as they fell headlong into the open and blazing No.3 elevator into the cavernous inferno that had been the hangar.

I think most anons are going after Shoukaku because she personifies every goddamn moe-moe anime girl type in one white-haired bundle, up to and including crying cutely so that they have something to coo over.

80,000+ RAW photos is about 4 terabytes of data (25-50 megabytes or so each. File sizes have increased over years as I've changed camera bodies). The one's I've actively worked on in photoshop have large file sizes as well.

The couple hundred slides we've scanned from our old archives were at 5400 dpi? Basically, huge file sizes but you can print them at almost any size. I'm looking for a bunch of shots from West Point as well for Ghost and Merc for their quests as well (Para-jump demos and such).

Seems like a total waste, but memory is cheap, but I can't argue with the results. This has been downsized and artifacted to hell by now, but it's vibrant and very close to the original shot.

Anyways, while I was typing and rambling, I set the fucking hard drives to start importing and organizing. Maybe this weekend i dunno.

Fun fact; in the game you can manually set the running depth to something sane, set the fuse to contact rather than magnetic incidence, and basically fix most of the stupid-ass doctrinal problems the Mk14s had.

Gross violation of navy policy, but hey, so is shooting fishing boats with my deck gun for target practice.

None of these girls are really emotionally stable.

The worst ones are likely the ones that had to watch most of the crew die.

The problem the Japanese had was there own Damage control was not too good in comparison.

You get Sammy who wants to live this life how her last one ended.

You have poor Willie, who concentrates on her few failures and misses what she did good and then got her whole crew out alive.

Only one problem: the contact fuse on the Mk 14 was so shit that unless you hit the ship at a 45 degree angle the force of hitting the ship would snap the contact detonator. The torpedo would just sink down harmlessly unexploded.

She was a ship that didn't know how to die.

Somehow managing to get underway at Pearl Harbor on two boilers without any tugs while getting bombed and already having holes in her?

Get nuked not once but twice and smile right on through it?

Nevada should have no regrets, she lived hard, she fought hard, and she was a trooper through and through.

Though for full awkardness, Iowa used her for target practice.
>>
Some numbers for when we've gotta plan escorts and such

Hornet's top speed is 32.5 knots
Kaga and her sisters can make 28 knots
Shoukaku and hers top out at 34.2 knots
Ryūjō's is 29 knots

Obviously the escorts shouldn't be slower than the carriers

Arizona: 21 knots (oof)
Kongous: 30 knots (dess)
Willie: 35 knots
Sammy: 24 knots
Sendais: 35.3 knots
Tenryuu: 33 knots
desdiv6: 38 knots
[redacted]: 27 knots
torpedo dykes: 36 knots

I can't keep up on how many different types of girls Goto's got under his belt, but barring a few outliers it seems we won't want for agile escorts.

Perhaps in proper chapter order?

Yeah U-boats are not very fast as a rule. To use the german u-boats as an example.

Type VII 17.7 knots surfaced 6.7 submerged
Type IX 18.2 knots surfaced 7.7 submerged
Type XXI 15.6 knots surfaced 17.2 submerged 6.1 silent running
Type XXIII 9.7 knots surfaced 12.5 submerged

Pre-WW2 subs would be much slower than this. To put this into perspective most merchant shipping moved at 12 knots. A typical enemy corvette could move 16 knots, a frigate 20 knots, and your typical destroyer could move at 30+ knots.

“Yeah, almost like there's a war on,” you reply noncommittally. “Now can I ask you something?”

“My three sizes?”

You huff at her. “Flirt.”

“I aim to please, Admiral.”

“Is Kaga backed up some, now?”

“Backed... up?” Shoukaku blinks. “Oh! Like they mean in those cowboy movies the girls-”

“Yeah, you know. Not acting like I'm walking scum every time I'm in the room.”

Shoukaku pats your shoulder. “She's really not that bad at all, she's just... falling back on what she knows.”

“But she won't give me trouble?”

“Hardly. After that demonstration yesterday, she takes you seriously, at least.”

“And Hornet?”

“Hornet showed her up and highlighted just what got her, Akagi and Hiryuu killed at Midway,” Shoukaku says quietly, pulling you closer by your elbow to speak into your ear. “She learned her lesson, all right, but she can't openly admit it. She can't admit it to herself, I think. She was the Pride of Japan once, and she still carries that on her shoulders. She... she tries to carry us all, sometimes.” Shoukaku looks down at the hallway floor, pensive. “Sometimes I wonder if she's not trying to fool herself with that... that air of superiority. Like the high-class have; this Essence that you're born with, so innate to you that you can't possibly lose it.”

“That sounds like the kind of aura easily punctured,” you murmur.

“Yes, you understand.”

“So what about that thing that starts with “M” and ends with “IDWA-”

Shoukaku elbows you just enough to jostle the name out of your mouth. “That's my point!” she hisses. Heeding her wisdom, you button up before entering the CIC.

The room is mostly deserted of the usual operations staff; the main wall display showing a huge overhead map of the Pacific; little icons all over highlighting bases, ships and probable enemy operating areas. There's more of the latter on the map than you're comfortable with.

Staring up at the screen with tired eyes are Goto and Admiral Robert L. Thomas, commander of 7th fleet. Goto's holding a smoldering cigarette in his mouth that he seems to have forgotten about, and Lockwood is tossing a half-empty bottle of Pepsi between his hands.

“Defend everywhere, be strong nowhere,” Thomas says wearily. “Or... some Sun Tzu shit like that. Pardon my French.”

“Mmm,” Goto concurs, staring up at the map.

“You'd think they'd want to cover Singapore and Indonesia,” Thomas sighs. “Fits their party line perfectly. Just Defending Regional Security,” he mutters, the air quotes apparent in his tone.

“They've got enough patrol boats to cover their own coast,” Goto replies thoughtfully. “All their bluewater stuff is tied up with convoys-”

“-and they need the convoys desperately, and their littoral shit doesn't have the legs, and air attacks will massacre them and nobody down there's got airpower and even if they did Singapore's government won't have them.”

>>
“And Borneo and Sumatra would sooner give birth to porcupines on fire than host the JSDF,” Goto says.

Thomas glances askance at him.

“What?” Goto says with a shrug. “It's true.”

You slip out of Shoukaku's grasp and cough politely to attract their attention. They turn around, and you salute crisply as you're able.

Thomas's Pepsi bounces off his opposite hand and rolls across the floor, forgotten. Goto's cigarette falls out of his mouth. They both turn to look at each other, than turn back to you. You try to nudge your hat down with your saluting hand to cover your rising eyebrows - what's with them?

“Settle,” Thomas says first. “What the hell are you doing on your feet?”

“Saluting, sir.”

Thomas blinks, than returns your salute quickly. As soon as your hand lowers, he repeats his question. “What are you doing ambulatory?”

“Reporting for duty,” you reply slowly, half-expecting a trick question to pop out of the dim corners.

“Didn't they cut into your head?” Goto asks bluntly.

“The naval surgeon said I'm good to go, as long as I don't do any jumping jacks,” you reply.

Goto and Thomas share a quick look of surprise, then they both seem to shrug without moving. “Well, take a seat, Settle, and I'll give you the sitrep,” Thomas says, shuffling through some papers on the central table and fishing out a manilla folder. “Take a gander.”

You gander. The document is a sitrep on 7ths fleet ready and operational status, and it's a tale of woe - worn-out ships, ships badly in need of refit and repair and several ships still trucking with patched over battle damage months old. The flagship herself, USS Ronald Reagan, is in good enough shape, but her air wing is depleted from losses and constant operations since the war began, and the bill has finally come due.
>>
>>40958404

INDEED
>>
“Well,” you say flatly.

“Exactly,” Thomas sighs. “The kanmasu are going to have to carry this one, I'm afraid.”

“That's why we've got them,” Goto replies.

“So what's the strike force looking like?” you ask.

“That's what we could use your opinion on,” Goto replies. He slides over a legal pad filled with scrawling. The first notes compare and contrast CARDIV 1 and 5. Kaga and Akagi are considered the best at launching uniform strikes that can hit the enemy with “maximum inertia and concentration of force,” and to navigate the best - which means you can risk extreme-range strikes with more impunity. On the other hand, Shoukaku and Zuikaku are much more practiced in effective CAP doctrine the Japanese developed after Midway.

Under a line labeled “sea control/follow-up/supplemental scouting” is two lines - “SUBS” and “SURFACE GROUP” with a big question mark after them. Lastly is a lot of scribbling under “ASW cover,” where the choices seem to boil down to Ryujo, the light carrier with the funny hat you met in here yesterday, or two names that you're unfamiliar with - “Oregon” and “New Jersey.”

You flick your eyes up at Goto for clarification.

>>40958435
They were classified as large cruisers by the US, but battlecruisers by pretty much everyone else. They were intended to be cruiser killers but by the time they were completed there was a bit of an issue in that all of the cruisers they were intended to kill were already dead.

Well now.
>>
“Assuming the carrier battle goes our way, we'll want to move in and mop up stragglers trying to motor out of airstrike range before the next morning. I think a light surface action group could do it - we've got plenty of heavy cruisers chomping at the bit and even some destroyers in shape to sortie, all the damn littoral patrols be damned. Our girls excel at night action; they'd crush them.”

“We need to hold something back for sudden attacks elsewhere,” Thomas counters, “and the subs have even less to do than the cruisers, right now. Without a supply line to attack... or even abyssals in-transit - if they *do* transit - the subs are pretty much useless. You don't send diesel boats charging to the rescue if there's an attack somewhere; you send cruisers. Against an abyssal carrier group, though - especially with the hulls we've got available - I think they could manage Nautilus redux; a major pain in the ass for the enemy.”

“Well, if you're just picking off survivors after a successful air battle-”

“-a fast surface force is better,” Thomas finishes for Goto. “But the subs can harass them during the daylight action... which brings me to the next issue. You said something about smelling subs in the area yesterday, Settle?”

“Yes sir.”

“You have a good nose,” Thomas says. “Any way you dice it, they know we're coming, and I think they're laying for us. They'll have subs. And that could cause all sorts of damn mayhem for us.”

You think of Midway - USS Nautilus's endless, dogged attacks that perchance led some of Yorktown's bombers to the Japanese fleet. I-168 sealing Yorktown's fate as she was on the brink of being saved. Even Mogami's collision which sealed Mikuma's fate; emergency evasives after a submarine was spotted in the dark.

In short, a massive wrench in the works.

“I'm pulling for Ryujo,” Goto says. “An entire deck just for ASW patrols.”

“The only good news for 7th fleet is on that sheet of paper,” Thomas counters. “Two brand-spanking-new Virgina-class SSNs. Bring those with us and they'll devour any hostile subs that come sniffing around the carriers.”

You frown at the legal pad, thinking furiously, then glancing back up at the map and all those populated island chains you're responsible for defending. Whatever you send after those carriers won't be available to respond to any other attack - but you need to dispatch a proper force that can deal with the unexpected.

CarDiv 1 lacks in CAP, but that's what Hornet is for. Subs will be useful here; if the enemy wants to muck about, we can do that too. Voting for Ryujou because Abyssals do funny things to conventional radar and sonar, so the leveling effect will make our CVL come ahead in the long run.

Cardiv 5 has better doctrine at the moment - we need to make sure Akagi and Kaga have fully absorbed their retraining before putting them into such a sensitive engagement. The submarinebrats can ID and harry the enemy, and Ryujo can keep an eye out for subs and possibly provide backup CAP support. We'll also want to send some AA escorts, possibly a Burke or something.

Don't send the Virginias. The last time the Abyssals pulled a fast one on us we almost lost Arizona, Naka and a cutter. If the Abyssals have some ASW up their sleeves we don't know about those Virginias and everyone on board are fucked.

Hornet's on CAP, and we took down a number of their craft in their failed strike a few days ago. Ryujo because of the fuzziness of targeting with conventional weapons, and subs because Harder needs a day like a dog.

Planefag has previously hinted that Abyssals get graped in the mouth when the encounter modern subs.
>>
>>40958741
Cardiv 1= Kaga and Akagi
Cardiv 5: Zaikaku and Shoukaku
>>
>>40958741

Cardiv 1 is Kaga and Akagi. Cardiv 5 is Shoukaku and Zuikaku.

The other fleet carriers are either in no shape to sortie at the moment, or desperately needed to provide air cover to Borneo and Sumatra.

Okay. So.

This force has shown an remarkable ability to get strikes off, so we want good CAP abilities. And I'm inclined to send the surface force out with them, but... we really need to get a sense of how we can employ subs. Both in this battle and in general. So I'm thinking:

Unfortunately, no. They're largely occupied trying to catch abyssal subs moving through the Celebes Sea in a darling display of role reversal. They're vital in the latter role because, unlike most local ASW assets, they can defend themselves fairly well against air or surface attack, and with the abyssals you never know where the bastards will pop up.
