Verlaine: "They shall be named, then - Picket fleets 1 and 2, and with respect to firepower, Main fleet. I'll be on Akizuki with Foster as part of the 1st picket fleet - the american sailors will be on the Benham and Somers, one each, with the 2nd picket fleet. We'll be able to maintain comms if anything goes wrong."

Travis: "Yep. We'll be here - just shout if you need us."

The two light fleets split off in their respective directions, remaining at the edge of the visual range of sensors in the darkness of the night. It doesn't take long before the silence is broken by a voice over the radio.

Travis: "Oh, scratch that - we have contacts, it's a Yubari-class leading a group of 4 Hatsuharu-class destroyers - they're coming from northeast, roughly 14 miles now. Do we engage?"

Verlaine: "We could join up with fleet 2, if you think that's sufficient to deal with the threat. We wouldn't want to respond too harshly to immediate threats - especially since this is just a scouting party, most likely... Hence, we can expect a more serious follow-up attack, where the main fleet would come into play, I suppose.

Most of the planes are on the ground at the moment, but I've managed to get 20 of them in the air - 12 of them are carrying bombs, the rest are carrying torps. I'll be taking them off in groups of 4, about one flight per minute, so if you want to employ air support, just let me know."


Takao: "Admiral, I know I've told you this before, but I'd like to remind you that these G4M1 bombers are completely incapable of vision in night conditions - their visual sensors are simply not designed for low-light operation, hence they will be relying on information relayed from other ships, such as the picket fleets. Otherwise, they will be combat-capable as normal, for detected ships."

The hostile fleet continues steaming southwest, attempting to feel out your fleet. Another bunch of planes take off, reinforcing the aerial squadron and bolstering it up to 32 planes.

Travis: "Heavy portside turn, fleet to sail straight north, guns on bearing 041, shells up, loaded, fire full broadside!"

Verlaine: "Copy. We'll be there."

The hostile fleet maneuvers and begins sailing directly south, and both fleets sail full starboard broadside towards each other in a stand-off formation.

An exchange of gunfire ensues, but none of the shells from Travis' fleet hit their marks.

The hostile fleet returns fire with their full broadside of small caliber guns, primarily focusing on Tatsuta. Out of the 6 140mm and 20 127mm shells fired by the enemy, only a single 127mm shell strikes Tatsuta's deck, lightly damaging the light cruiser. (1331/1757)

Travis: "Pretty rough start, but I'm sure we'll nail 'em all in no time!"

Verlaine: "Another flight in the skies!"

The aerial squadron is further reinforced with another flight of 4 bomb-equipped aircraft.

"Ugh. Fleet 2, change course to head south instead. Need to watch out for the torpedoes. Same targets. Have fleet 1 engage when within 10 miles of the cluster. They will angle southwards for broadside, same targets. Main fleet will also head towards fleet 2, as an insurance. Let's take them out."

Spoiler: Show More

Travis: "Sailing south, pressing the attack!"

Verlaine: "Understood."

The hostile fleet refuses to change course, and both sides prepare for a second exchange. This causes the angle and distance between the two fleets to be maintained at 9.5 miles and roughly diagonal - except this time it's off the picket fleet's port, rather than starboard.

Tatsuta lands a hit with her 203mm guns, and even lands a hit with one of her 120mm guns. Travis, aboard his Benham-class destroyer, lands a hit with one of his 127mm guns as well, but Francis, aboard her Somers-class gunboat destroyer, fails to land any hits, failing to finish off the heavily damaged light cruiser. (77/1666)

The hostile fleet returns fire once more, with similar results - the Yubari nails Tatsuta with a single 140mm shell, while every other shell from the Hatsuharus miss by a wide margin. (905/1757)

Travis: "Tatsuta's getting roughed up - she can disengage and let us handle it. Our destroyers can take more than a few hits.

Akizuki's out of range with her weaker guns, too - she can trail Tatsuta out of the fight with her smoke generator if need be, Francis and I can hold them for a while."


Another 4 torpedo bombers take-off from the airbase.

Travis: "No problem, we'll handle this. Guns up, fire!"

Verlaine: "We see the Tatsuta breaking away - we're within 10 miles, providing covering fire."

Fleet 2 continues engaging with only Travis and Francis left aboard their class name destroyers. Tatsuta breaks to the west with Akizuki providing a small smokescreen - a screen small enough such that it wouldn't disrupt the firing sequences of the americans, while still concealing the relatively small light cruiser from further hostile attack. Verlaine's fleet closes in, and she takes the initiative as Tenryu fires away with her 203mm guns, angling southeast to engage with a full broadside from 10 miles.

Tenryu's first 203mm shell nails the target, sinking the already damaged Yubari.

The destroyers focus their guns on the nearest Hatsuharu, landing two hits - one 127mm and one 120mm shell connect, heavily damaging the hostile destroyer. (272/1095)

The hostile destroyers return fire, this time at the Somers-class gunboat destroyer instead. Despite the wide dispersion of shells, two 127mm shells find the deck of the american destroyer. The well-armored destroyer absorbs the hits, despite it's small appearance. (934/1786)

Travis: "Francis just took a hit on her Somers - we're gunboat destroyers, we'll do fine dueling other light boats like those Hatsuharus."

Verlaine: "Advise you stand down and rejoin with the main fleet, Travis."

Travis: "Admiral, your call."

4 more bomb-equipped bombers join the air fleet.

Travis: "...copy."

Verlaine: "Resuming engagement."

Tatsuta and Akizuki slow down slightly to allow Somers to catch up to the smokescreen, as the retreating unit continues sailing westwards, back to the main fleet's original location. Verlaine and the main fleet continue advancing eastwards in support of the lone Benham-class destroyer.

Tenryu's last 120mm shell manages to put the damaged Hatsuharu out of action, while the concentrated firepower of the american destroyers cleanly knock out another Hatsuharu with 3 solid hits. Mutsuki fails to hit any of her shots.

The Benham-class AA destroyer suffers a similar fate as the Somers moments before - despite the highly inaccurate destroyer salvoes which the Hatsuharus are letting loose, Benham is unfortunate enough to be struck by two 127mm shells. (719/1571)

Travis: "Damn, we're really unlucky tonight, aren't we? This is getting ridiculous now!"

Verlaine: "Contacts, 15 miles northwest of the main fleet - displays updated.

Targets identified as two Furutaka-class heavy cruisers and two Yubari-class light cruisers. They shouldn't be a significant threat - likely another patrol fleet."


Travis: "Y'know, I'm just sayin', but I think there's gonna be a lot of 'em if we don't leave ASAP, once the planes are ready. How 'bout an exit plan?"

Another flight of torpedo bombers take off, joining the formation of bombers in holding pattern above the airbase.

Travis: "Diverting and disengaging immediately. They're all yours, Verlaine."

Verlaine: "We have them. Shells up, ready to fire."

The Benham-class destroyer breaks away westwards, while Verlaine takes control of the engagement. The main fleet broadsides and engages the eastern fleet with guns as well.

A majority of the ships from both the main fleet and Verlaine's light fleet engage the closest Hatsuharu, which successfully evades a large number of shells but is still sunk by Tenryu and Mutsuki's combined firepower.

Nagatsuki and Satsuki fail to land any hits on the last Hatsuharu in the eastern group.

Atago's missile flies off her port side, and at a distance of 13 miles the missile nails it's target, sinking the Furutaka in a single blow, splitting it apart amidships.

The last Hatsuharu re-engages with guns, targeting Tenryu. Every shell misses by a wide margin.

The distant northwest hostile fleet attempts to engage from a range of 13 miles, targeting the missile-equipped Atago with only their forward armament. The measly two 203mm shells from the remaining Furutaka's forward-facing guns also fails to score any hits.

Verlaine: "We need an exit plan, admiral. Travis isn't wrong."

More bomb-equipped aircraft joins the aerial squadron.

"Nice, NDA! Permission granted, sink the other Furutaka!"

"Any incoming fleet strong enough to threaten us, with this amount of aircraft would likely be too slow to pursue us. We should stay, at least until all the planes are in the sky."

"Have the current aircraft rendezvous at main fleet's current location, and redirect all planes taking off there."

"Nagatsuki, Satsuki, break from main fleet and head south. Broadside the last Hatsuhara. Picket 1, all guns on the Hatsuhara as well."

"Main fleet, angle further eastwards while maintaining broadside on the northwest cluster. All guns on the Furutaka."

"Many thanks, commander. Ready to fire!"

"Adjust elevation for 13 miles! Load the launcher and ready the fire sequence! Launch at the remaining Furutaka when ready!

___________
-- Day 02, 2207 hours --

Spoiler: Show More

Verlaine: "I hear you - will do."

Verlaine engages the Hatsuharu in tandem with the two Mutsuki-class destroyers diverting from the main fleet - Satsuki and Nagatsuki join the brief skirmish. Together, Satsuki and Nagatsuki each score a hit, but Tenryu wipes the Hatsuharu clean out of the water with two hits from her 203mm batteries, almost dematerializing the entire ship.

Atago's missile flies off into the distance, but meets the water at subsonic speeds. Takao's angled broadside fails to score any hits against the Furutaka either, from 13 miles out.

The Furutaka and Yubaris continue to maintain their forward course, and while their narrow profile makes them a hard target, their Furutaka is unable to fire her full broadside - her frontal guns of two 203mm guns fail to find the broadside of Atago.

Another flight of torpedo bombers successfully take off, which makes a total of 58 planes.

"All damaged ships, head towards the dock. We might be able to fix them up before more arrive."

"Picket 1, group up with main fleet. Main fleet, continue targetting the Furutaka."

"NDA, another one!"
