Pitch your plan to retake Guadalcanal and Tulagi Posted on April 30, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor Pitch your plan to retake Guadalcanal and Tulagi
Saturated nuclear strikes with 15 megaton warheads.
Pay off the Panamanian military to launch another coup.
Oh, my bad, I read that as "Guatemalan Canal" and thought this was some other alt-history bullshit scenario where the Guatemalans captured the Panama Canal.
I like this form of autism, you should make a thread
We funded your plan. South America is now in disarray and the USN cannot transit ships through the canal, but fruit prices are at an all time low! There's still the issue of the Japs though...
attack the transports after sinking all their escorts instead of just turning around and running away
Pack Indispensable Strait with subs. Guadalcanal at this point has no permanent air cover so operations here should heavily restrict allied attempts to resupply the island. Send transport ships by night halfway, then have them moor in camouflage within the various inlets of Santa Isabel. Have fighter sweeps keep the sky at least somewhat clear of snoopers.
>Guadalcanal at this point has no permanent air cover
except for the three fleet carriers
>so operations here should heavily restrict allied attempts to resupply the island
Jap planes didn't have the range and accuracy necessary to make this happen. they could have messed up the marines' plans a bit but you can't bomb them off of the island
drawing CV's out to the islands would've put them at risk, so anon's plan is pretty good actually because it can bait those carriers into being open to attacks by Japanese carriers or even a surface force.
>Jap planes didn't have the range and accuracy necessary to make this happe
he's talking about striking the maritime lifeline to the islands, which is pretty easy relative to bombarding land targets with small payloads.

look at a map bro, the supply line to the island was further east. the japs could barely get seaplanes in the air over guadalcanal, they weren't going to be able to do shit against transports sneaking in from the east at night
land based bombers, operating out of Rabaul, can reach that far bro, and sometimes they actually did and went that far.
>the japs could barely get seaplanes in the air over guadalcanal
according to these videos, the japanese made several attempts with land based aircraft but it was prevented by weather conditions
>except for the three fleet carriers
Thats entirely my point.
three fleet carriers is five times what the guadalcanal air field had at any point during its operation, with better planes too, read a book
I send wave after wave of my own men across a 15m wide sand bar that's protected by machineguns and 37mm cannons.
Based and alligator creek pilled.
Surely the 4th wave will work!
He would make a great 3 day special operation commander thats for sure.
>most brilliant IJA commander
They were doomed from the start of the war
>They were doomed from the start of the war
reminder IJA entered China against orders from Japan in the first place
You forgot the barbed wire
Actually sink the transports instead of calling it a night after the allied cruisers got BTFO
Barrel bombs packed with powdered uranium.
actually destroy Henderson field
