Can you get your other Carrier fleet parked in the next bit of ocean and just send over the CAGs?
The suspense will be terrible.
I've thought up a revolutionary new strategy, instead of building two ships for every ship sunk, build three ships for every ship sunk. It can't possibly fail!
If im not mistaken, plan 2 is also far closer to what the original plan orange was: Completely and utterly ignore the Philippines, and just Island hop to Japan.
We only diverted to the Philippines because of MacArthur being incompetent.
