The Conclusion .....

Postby cjw957 » Tue Apr 19, 2016 11:27 am

Well After the Americans had settled on the beach and pushed forward to allow a supply base and hq to be established , orders came in to reinforce the supply base but go misread and the hq was reinforced leaving the supply base more open to Japanese assault and plunder. The weather on the day was meant to be wet and windy but turned out to be be sunny and calm which helped both sides achieve so much , tanks , pigeons, fuel dumps, matt stewart, mortars etc were all blown up , miss dropped supplies were rescued, minefields were laid and dug up, a lady was escorted to the loo :whistle: , ambushs laid , ambushs foiled, wells were tested and poisoned, injured marine rescued, bad writing was every where ... , banzai charges were cut down and run away from , folks were a step closer to having diabetes, rice and fish was eaten, propaganda photos taken and so much more with both sides pushing and pushing back :whistle: :whistle: :giggle: :giggle:

But on the day the Japanese managed to get the upper hand and force back the Marine advance and hold them back , and harrased the Marines through out the night but there victory would be short lived ...

the following morning the Marines, landed reinforcements in the form of the 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marines , pounded locations with mortar fire throughout the morning, and then assaulted the two positions, utilizing improvised explosive charges to kill the Japanese defenders taking cover in the many caves and fighting positions spread throughout the hill and ravine. Employing the improvised explosives, the individual Japanese fighting positions were destroyed. Significant Japanese resistance ended by the afternoon, although a few stragglers were found and killed over the next several days. The battle for Tulagi was over ...


So the American might moves on , but was held back for a short while by tough restistance from the Japanese defenders, but without resupply and outnumbered they were soon crushed


war effort rating on the day

Japanese 1675

U.S.M.C. 1505

to be fair all squads were pretty evenish but the outstanding bravery of the Japanese squad 2 led the way for the Japanese to swing a small victory (even if it was short lived)

once again i must thank every single player, who got what we were trying to do with this event and embraced it, and those that spent some serious cash on an event/storyline that could have crashed and burned and been very shortlived, thankfully that does not seem to be the case i and hope the pacific will be around for a while, we have plans for 2 games next year and to celebrate this ,i have ordered another nambu pistol :happyclap:

and to steal a bit of a line from soccer am , the winner of the day was ... WW2 Airsoft :)

Banzai!

Games like this are why I got into this hobby. So glad this is set to become a twice yearly thing. Now I just need to make an airsoft arisaka and see what other jap kit I can buy. Maybe SNLF...

Well it is such a gorgeous looking piece of kit.. I'd love one even just as a wall hanger
I've fired a bullet on every continent. Nearly hit someone, too.

Dom from Vintage airsoft is working on a type 99 for myself. Watch this space. :)

SNLF seems like an easy swap. Good choice for airsoft too, nice easy buckle on gaiters and a large number of submachineguns (by Japanese standards)

A nice type 99 would be great to see. Hiki sell the naval uniform and I could easily get a canvas cover for my helmet with the naval anchor on to cover up the army star. Would probably go better with my type 100.

If anyone else is up for getting a SNLF uniform together I'd definitely join in. Though I won't be there for Tenaru I'll be there for Pacific games next year.

Ralph

Yeah, the Type 99 is probably my favourite military issued Bolt action rifle, I always found it aesthetically pleasing too, just don't ask about the anti-aircraft sights or monopod

The Nambu was great , it said only 134 gas like a lot of tms etc but it was a little hit and miss :whistle: so used green and it rocked , its only about 12 shots and only shot just over a mag maybe 15-16 shots all day with it , but its very comfy and nice weight, and best of all 2 confirmed kills :happyclap: which made my day :)

only place i found with any in was den trinity in hk but be careful they do 8mm and 6mm versions , though i think only 6mm left , you have to order then they said you shipping quote , if you get 1 put your ukara number everywhere you can and even maybe email them asking to put on it, as thats why i had the police come around :slap:

only place i found spare mags is toykomodel in hk as well , they just shipped 2 mags too me today :)

and lastly it fit in the holster very nice, but the lanyards from hiki seem a tad thick and nearly killed myself putting one on the lump of metal one that was by the radio :)

I'm definitely going to have to get one. Especially as the type 100 will be full auto only as it's a sten conversion.
