|Making a mark in the Marshalls|
|Date||1st Jan 1942|
|Overview||SBDs are going to attack Japanese bombers on the ground at Maloelap atoll in the Marshalls. Escort them and join in the fun as the situation and your responsibilities permit.|
|Background||The Japanese have been enjoying all the advantages in the opening rounds. Here's a chance for us to hit their planes on the ground.|
|Player a/c||Grumman F4F-4 Wildcat|
|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!
