Countdown to Operation Hailstone:
3 Days Remaining
0208 — Starting
1555 — Update
1832 — Update, end of Expedition 38 runs
2110 — Update, 2100 mark update
2350 — Final Update, Ending log
0208 was technically the ending time for the previous day, at 1542 it was decided to restart fleet log for the duration of Operation Hailstone. Until the start of the operation there will be no sorties, the only ship movement is expeditions. Fleets are being reorganized in preparation for Operation Hailstone. Currently the fleets are as follows:
First, Second, and Third fleets are likely to be reformed depending on the requirements of Operations Hailstone with Fourth fleet possibly shifting out Abukuma to cover for Second fleet in the event of combined fleet operations. More updates will follow with each completion of Expedition 38.
At 1832 the final required weekly Expedition 38 was completed, switching focus to bauxite, Third fleet has changed composition and flag ship:
Fourth fleet has shifted to running only Expedition 5 until night. In the process of deciding Third fleet’s night time expedition but likely to return to Expedition 38 composition for night. Bauxite goal most likely will not be met though it appears ammunition will hit the target zone, or at least reach within 500 of it.
Continuing operations as previous for 2110, no changes in fleets though expedition dailies were completed. Final update will be around 1150 as well as closing report.
Target for ammunition was missed however weekly Expedition 38 runs are completed and fleets have rotated to shorter expeditions. Expeditions 2, 5, and 6 will be run during the day until Operation Hailstone with Expeditions 11, 13, and 38 becoming the night expeditions.
Bucket count is still below expected, it appears the target of 300 buckets before Operation Hailstone will not be met either. With enemy sub fleets being confirmed for the next operation the chance of success has increased, the fleet and Anti-sub gear is ready and hopefully damage from subs will be kept to a minimum. Next day operations will begin soon but will only last until 0030.
