"You've been briefed correctly Captain Krueger. And certainly you can leave behind whatever you wish, though I'd recommend you leave the pilots behind as well in the event that the planes have to be flown out to you."

Captain Pruitt, my staff is working on a map. While I appreciate your enthusiasm about aggressively attacking the Japanese, I would caution about going too aggressively, lest you run into more than you can chew. Yours is one of about two remaining task forces in this region of the world."

Mazrin notes Krueger's and Pruitt's decision with a small nod, but actually offers Zenf and Edinburgh's captain each a small half-bow as they make their entrance.

"Richelieu will keep her full complement of scout planes flying from her deck; we must keep our eyes open when the Jap is about." He steps forward to span a number of distances on the map with his splayed hand then nods conclusively as he looks around at the other captains. "We all command vessels with some celerity, gentlemen. If I am not mistaken we can maintain a sustained pace of some 30 knots for two days or more without any notable strain to our engines, so I recommend a night move; circling east and north to approach the beaches from the north west, like so." He traces a notional course:



"Timed correctly, we would come into effective range of the first of the at nautical twilight pre-dawn and could then maintain a distance of 20 km as we pass south-east through the engagement range and complete our bombardment in a single pass. Then we move back out to sea and return to Singapore. Elémentaire!"

Captain Zenf immediately takes a liking the old European courtesy of captain Marzin and the cool appreciation of the situation by the Frenchman.

As a junior commander from a junior Allied nation that declared war on Japan immediately after Pearl Harbour, Zenf knows his position in Rainbow's hierarchy, and he can spot and support talent.
He nods approvingly after the words of Marzin and adds:

'The 'Isaac Sweers' sailed fully loaded from Batavia
has resupplied water, food & fuel in Singapore and is ready to sail out again as you suggest mon capitaine.
Though she is not designed for shore bombardments, she can perform her destroyer tasks admirably moving like a 'wind hound' through the formation;


he eyes his fellow destroyer captain during these last words

and contribute greatly to Rainbow's AA capacity.'

Do any of the ships have a search radar? We need to put such a ship in the lead position at night. If we don't get advanced warning of Japanese ships at night, they will announce themselves with a torpedo attack on us.

Captain Fredegrav hails the fleet. "Greetings comrades, I bring the jewel of the Black Sea fleet, the Voroshilov cruiser. She displaces 7,890 tons dry and 191.3 meters long, max speed of 36.72 knots, 2,140 nmi range, 872 man complement, armed with
3 × 3 - 180 mm (7.1 in) B-1-P guns
6 × 1 - 100 mm (3.9 in) B-34 dual-purpose guns
6 × 1 - 45 mm (1.8 in) 21-K AA gun
4 × 1 - 12.7 mm (0.50 in) AA machine guns
2 × 3 - 533 mm (21.0 in) torpedo tubes
96–164 mines
50 depth charges
2 × KOR-1 seaplanes

No radars yet, but am negotiating with my British comrades to install one Type 284, two Type 285, one Type 291 and two Type 282 radars. I come here to avenge my brothers killed by the Japanese invaders at Tsushima.

I'm a really big fan of the RN, except its aircraft. Any chance that I can have any other aircraft than the Walrus? Anything American would be good.

Captain Marzin shrugs eloquently at the American commander's query. "I have suggestions only; we are all equals here, non?"

His gaze moves left to the Dutch captain in his formal whites and he inclines his head in recognition and appreciation of his preparedness. He had been ready to think the worst of an officer from a nation so speedily overrun by the Wehrmacht - but then, la belle patrie had been overrun with equal dispatch and with far more warning. Certainly Zenf seemed resolute in his resolve to not be caught napping again. Then again, all the officers here had seen evidence enough of the cost of being caught unawares by fascist aggression; American, Soviet, British, Dutch and Frenchman alike, they had all been bruised... but far from beaten.

"If I were to suggest something, it would be a circle formation with the cruisers - possibly save one with good radar who can take point - sheltering beneath Richelieu's main guns and shielding her in turn from any enemy pilots. To tether the destroyers in close would be a waste. I can only heartily concur with my colleague from Den Helder and recommend that both light craft operate as wind hounds throughout the formation."

He nods in turn to the Soviet captain, welcoming his presence in the flotilla... although somewhat mindful of his nation's tacit support for the Reich while Frenchmen fought and died in 1940.

Update

A Leftenant still in flying gear arrives looking harried and out of sorts. After a brief conversation with the Air Vice Marshal, he gives a briefing:

"My flight of 3 Buffaloes did a pass over the beaches just a couple of hours ago. We couldn't stay long, they do have some flak there now and we know that they put up fighters at the first sign of air trouble.

We did a wide pass, and my wingmen checked the landing beach areas. They saw several ships moored and some landing craft moving between them and the shore. Ashore there weren't really any defenses that they could spot, but there are some supply dumps not far inland, maybe 1-2 km.

I did a pass offshore. I didn't see much, but I flew damned close to one Jap destroyer and I saw the smoke columns of at least two larger vessels, maybe more. Then we got harried by fighters on the way back, and one of my men is wounded, so I'll get back to him"

The Leftenant then leaves.

"Alright gentlemen, that's the very best I could do for you given the circumstances. I don't want you to go in blind, but at the same time there isn't much light I can shed. And in that vein, you'll need a Commodore. I'd suggest you hurry up and decide who will be leading this expedition (OOC: They'll be given permissions to edit on the map....just easier than letting everyone edit on the map)."

Note, on formations, only the US ships would have training and a doctrine that allows a circular "sector" formation to be used effectively at this time. Everybody else is still using traditional steaming formations, line ahead, line abreast, column of divisions, etc.

What's the major concern here? Submarines? Air attack? A day surface action? A night surface action? This determines what formation you want to use.

So, the Nips have Fighters based on Malaya now. Any word on bombers? What are the locations of the airfields in the area?
I would love to paste those first."

The route looks good, but it is very long. Looks like over 600 miles to me, even if we go at a high rate of speed we have to go almost half way in daylight.
Right?
Maybe we need to but that angle at the top.

Radar... I know the US Cruiser would have it, but it won't be very good. What about the British?

"After the British mishap, I sense air attack is one of the largest concerns we may have.

If you feel the cruisers' training and doctrine will not allow them to maintain a circle formation, then by all means consider a diamond during the day and a closer column through the night.

As I say, it is but a suggestion. We may instead discuss the point of command, and leave it to the Commodore to order whatever formation he deems fit."
