Tokyo Express and Battle of Edson's Ridge

Postby cjw957 » Fri Jul 21, 2017 10:18 pm

Tokyo Express is the next in our chain of events in the Pacific, the Tokyo Express was the way Japanese moved troops at night by destroyers and other small boats, having not retaken Henderson Airfield at Tenaru the allied forces established a largish air force which made any ship movement in the day very dangerous, plane cover from Japan would be spotted way in advance by native spotters so by the time it got here Allied fighters would be in the air to meet them.

The Japanese once again try to take the airfield using a small ill equipped force (what could go wrong) :whistle: having to move stuff on the Tokyo Express meant no real heavy support weapons, lack of supplies and rations. So the commander has orders to try and make a base and establish a supply line to make a larger attack on Henderson airfield - The Japanese will try and probe US forces and gain supplies but not try a direct attack against them if they can build the base and get a lot of supplies they will be set up for a large attack towards Henderson Airfield in the next game Battle of Edson's Ridge

so that's the plan for next year lol
