(CHAPTER 6) Naval Battle of Guadalcanal part 1

WE will try this on this coming  FRIDAY and saturday  on APRIL 27th and 28th 4/27/18 and 4/28/18 8:30-11:30PM US Eastern standard time , 7:30-10:30 PM US CENTRAL TIME, 6:30-9:30 PM US MOUNTAIN TIME, 5:30-7:30 PM US PACIFIC TIME , 10:30AM -1:30 PM in Sydney Australia 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM in Perth Australia.  

this will be in the training room labeled naval battle Guadalcanal part 1  chapter 6. search for training rooms by Outwardpanicjoe 

IJN force addition to the battleships Hiei (Abe's flagship) and Kirishima,  light cruiser Nagara (us kuma class or similar.) destroyers (SamidareMurasameAsagumoTeruzukiAmatsukazeYukikazeIkazuchiInazumaAkatsukiHarusame, and Yūdachi).[19] Three more destroyers (ShigureShiratsuyu, and Yūgure) would provide a rear guard in the Russell Islands during Abe's foray into the waters of "Savo Sound" around and near Savo Island. For this scenario we will use the 2 Kongo class BBs, any kuma class light cruiser or similar. DDS 3 Shiratsuyu, 2 Kagero, 3 Akatsuki, 1 Akizuki.

Objective: push the USN out of Guadalcanal and away from the volcano destroy at least 2 CLs and 4 DDs to claim victory and make way for your transports.

USN force  His force consisted of two heavy cruisers (San Francisco and Portland), three light cruisers (HelenaJuneau, and Atlanta), and eight destroyersCushingLaffeySterettO'BannonAaron WardBartonMonssen, and Fletcher. Admiral Callaghan commanded from San Francisco. For this scenario we are going to use 1 Indianapolis for the  Portland, San Francisco (new Orleans), 2 Atlanta classes, 1 mahan, 1 sims , 2 fletchers, 2  bensons.  

OBJECTIVE : USN must push the IJN out of the slot and take out, take one BB down to 1/3 HP , destroy 3 DDs at least one must be in the Akatsuki class, and one cruiser to claim victory.   

This is a closer quarter’s engagement fight all must fight in close to the slot by or behind the volcano.

if your team thinks you will lose the ship needed to take a victory you can pull back a map border to try again but it the enemy team takes out the ships before you get there or capture the slot they will claim victory.

If me being late to the fun isn't a problem, count me in.

My Preference: Akizuki, or Akatsuki

I do have all IJN DDs that are listed, and will be perfectly happy to play any of them. GUADALCANAL SHALL FOREVER BE UNDER IJN CONTROL!!!:cap_rambo:

I love everything about this. I'm a huge Guadalcanal history buff. My grandfather watched this battle in person from the island.  Unfortunately, I doubt I can attend on such short notice...but this is really cool.

I replied no because I simply cannot commit to the time slot otherwise I would be a hard yes.  Would love to see the replay.

that's fine just make sure you put on a standard camo and use the normal guns found on the kagero and you should be good.
