Dec 6th : PEARL HARBOR

558 posts in this topic

Did we give up after the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?!?!

This event attempts a homage to those we honor the highest - and will likely be a better event than the Ben Affleck movie.

Here is the setup:

30 Naval Players in DD's, FMB's, and TT's take positions in Antwerp Harbor (at the in-game scale it is roughly the same dimensions as Pearl Harbor, although we must warp our minds around the concept of Ford Island, but alas, these are the concessions we must make.)

Opposing them will be up to 80 Stukas launched from Gilze, arranged in four sections of 20 and allowed 2 lives each (second life must wait for 2nd wave launch) -- will take 4 pilot volunteers to lead and organize the sections.

Section 1 (Fuchida Section)

Section 2 (Shimazaki Section)

Section 3 (Genda Section)

Section 4 (Nagumo Section)

Stukas will arrive in two waves, the second approx. 45 minutes after the first.

Event will last approx. 45 minutes combat time, allow extra time to setup.

Victory Points:

IJN Side-

DD = +5

DD's #9 & #10 = +3

FMB = +2

TT/Bofors = +1

USN Side-

Stuka = -1 to IJN total

IJN Score of 50 or higher decisive victory

IJN Score of 43 to 49 marginal victory

IJN Score of 36 to 42 marginal defeat

IJN Score of 35 or lower decisive defeat

10:00 US Pacific

18:00 GMT/London

08:00 Honolulu Time

Time of Event: 10:00 US Pacific (San Francisco) Time (consult: World Clock for your local time)

(i.e., approx. same time as attack...we'll run a little latter)

Correct, multi-crew is highly recommended :)

Tally-ho, I'm in!

Destroyer please!

Destroyer as in a "historical DD" being FMB?

Or Destroyer as in "historical capital ship" being DD?

USS Vestal

That's right, I'm taking the glass bottomed bomb magnet along battleship row!

EDIT: Point of Order- The Nevada is blocked in, it can't get underway

.....Point of Order- The Nevada is blocked in' date=' it can't get underway[/quote']

I don't think you are meant to get underway.

Very few ships had this option at Pearl Harbor.

You fight, and die perhaps, in the location you are at. You will be next to me.

Until we see a Submarine....

Historically the Nevada did get underway in the most epic moment outside the Arizona's death...at that point every IJN aircraft converged on the Nevada as it headed for the channel and open water.

The reason the Nevada was different was because her OOD had extra boilers lit at the time of the attack allowing him to get up enough steam to make headway by around the time of the second attack wave.

This was movingly described in most every account, and Tora Tora Tora could not apparently do the scene justice...of course Ben Affleck was busy flying TIE Fighters when the actual heroic moment of Pearl Harbor was occuring.

With the terrible punishment the Nevada was taking for the gall of getting up and moving...(taking punishment that would have been inflicted on her sisters) ... she was ordered to beach herself to avoid blocking the channel (which would have made her heroics a true disaster for the USN since it would take weeks, if not months, to remove her from blocking the channel.)

I'd like to sign up for the USS California, cause it's a nice ship. And I live in California.... but I'm only a recruit rank in the Navy... Can I still do it? (probably not)

I'm new to all this Realism stuff.

If not, I'll be the USS Sacramento.

This occurs on the training server where you can spawn anything!!!

So you get the CA! :)

Hey you gonna put in a couple of H81's?

There is some discussion in the Hanger Forum notice for this event...basically it comes down to if people would be put off by facing H81's with Stukas...or if some work around could be found to keep Axis Fighter cannons for ripping up the FMB's.
