USN task force 2 carriers USS enterprise and a Lexington class carrier 1 battleship USS North Carolina doing escort duty and shore bombardment  and 2 heavy cruisers an New Orleans class cruiser and a Indianapolis. And 4 Mahan class cruisers doing shore bombardment and AA protection.

IJN group 4 Zuiho class carriers together beached on the island representing the airfield together the USN will have a delay so you can get into position. And 1-2 Ryujo carriers with 2 tier 2-3 DD escorting each Ryujo only. IJN OBJECTIVE don’t let the USN take the air base protect the air strip don’t let it get destroyed.

 

Chapter Two “battle of Savo Island”

Chapter Three “battle of the eastern Solomon’s” RUN ENTERPRISE RUN

IJN TASK FORCE, 2 Shokaku class Carriers (Shokaku, Zuikaku) and 1 Ryujo class carrier  1 Kongo Class Battleship providing AA support only.

Maybe you want to invite a couple of lower tier dds to act as DE's (I.e. S.B. Roberts) for Chapter 2?  I'm game with a Clemson.  Let me know how to sign up.

outwardpanicjoe,

 

I stand corrected.  There were no DEs that participated in the battle https://www.history.navy.mil/research/library/online-reading-room/title-list-alphabetically/b/battle-of-guadalcanal.html

My confusion is that there were DDs there that had the same name as Wicks DDs that the US had given to the Brits.

 

Now, a pitch.  Can you draw up a training room simulating the Battle of Samar?  It might be tough because anyone playing the IJN side will know how weak the USN position was, but maybe you could find a way to leveling the odds?

hmm that's not a bad idea ill have to look more into it there look to be enough for a hold chapter or 2. i also have a few other events worked up so they might come first since the battle of Samar was a little later,midway i have been looking into doing a lower tier event with dreadnoughts since we have german bbs and English bbs we could do one on the battle of Jutland.

Jutland, now that would be fun since the lower tier ships are from that time in history.
