(CHAPTER 6) Naval Battle of Guadalcanal part 1

WE will try this on this on the coming Friday on MAY 25th 5/18/18 and  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 anyone is interested in helping to make new events or suggestions feel free to join the workshop discord  https://discord.gg/ygjyP2G

Nice. I'll be joining in this time around. Only USN ship I have that fits the requirements is the Atlanta. But on the IJN side I have the Kongos, Akizuki, and Harekaze (which I suppose can count as a Kagero as long as I stick to the IJN 3x2 127mm guns).

I think it is a wonderful idea, and I applaud your efforts. I would like to participate but do not have any of those ships.  I would however like very much to observe if that is possible.  Please get back to me with info on how to watch if possible. 

Thank you and good luck with a great plan,

Good idea. Already in theme, the CL52 Juneau was found in march of this year by  Paul Allen. Peace at the souls of the five brothers Sullivans lost with the ship, this tragic day of Nov 13, 1942(the USN changed after the rules of assignation of crews after this day).

I guess you could just bring a tier 1 or a cv to torpedo yourself but there would have to be an observer on both side so it doesn't effect points.

You need a rule forbidding the New Orleans from firing on the Kuma!

looks like a lot of fun.  You wont be able to do the night combat aspect that characterized the various surface battles around Guadalcanal.  But still, GL with your event!

Can't wait for Helena to appear so we can do Cape Esperance and Tassafaronga.

I guess Savo will have to wait till we get UK 8" line for HMAS Australia and Canberra.
