Any chance of including the battle of the Bismark sea ? the destruction of the Jap task force headed for Lae. I cant wait for this game.

hmm, (settin' up the firewood) - and what about final part of this battle - massacre of japanese sailors&soldiers in the water?

otherwise there isn't anything special about this particular battle, just sinking an escorted convoy..

Killing for peace is like whoring for virginity.

Thr Bismarck Sea battle is significant in that it marked the last time the Japanese Army was willing to re-inforce/ re-supply it's island Garrisons with conventional trasports. Thereafter, the Daihatsu (barge)became the vehicle of choice for re-supply. Barge busting then became a major activity for fighter groups of the VAAF.

I don't think the grisly aftermath needs modelling.
