Has anyone achived this?..
I sat and discussed it whit a friend the other day and he tried it on me in a game. Sending 2 subs and 2 fighters on the ships outside hawaii, and the remaining 4 fighters from the carriers to the fleet outside the US west coast. He failed misserbly, but he had some extreme bad luck.
But if this attack is successfull, you can hinder any reenforcements being sent to australia by CAP’ing and the us have a serious problem getting it’s act togheter again. Of course the us will counter attack this fleet, but it will be an even run and will only delay the us further, and buying more time for Japan.
Australia will have serious trouble if you first putt presure on india so that most of the Brittish convoy money goes there. And then shift the atention to Australia (with some quick naval action) which should be easely defeated without the help of american troops and ships…
Does any of this make sence?
