Intel We anticipate some aerial opposition but aircraft types and numbers are not yet known.

According to the recon photo you might as well regard everything on this atoll as a target!
MiGMan's Combat Diary Well everything on this atoll may have been a target - but as a corollary of that, everything on this atoll was regarding me as a target!

Some kind of ship was throwing up tracers but the action was so furious I couldn't make out what it was. I paused the sim and panned around I could see it was in fact... a submarine!
