Remble said:Admiral Spruance had run out of luck a long time ago and he would find himself on the receiving end of another encounter with the Imperial Japanese Navy. He was unlucky enough to meet the strongest Battlefleet at sea.
Ozawa and BB Division 1 more or less ran him over during their transit south towards Hollandia. Spruance could have been conducting an invasion towards Ngulu when he was unfortunate enough to be found. Whatever he was doing in the Yap Channel quickly ended when the Battlecruiser IJN Kongo and Battleship IJN Yamashiro sank the ships he had been commanding.
"Sir, we have finished to fish survivors out of the sea. It seems we managed to capture the enemy Admiral!"
"Yes, Sir, again. It´s Admiral Spruance. What shall we do with him?"
"Send him back asap. He is the best help the USN offers us."
I am looking forward to see the Pacific War when the Japanese Air Force left to fight the Reds.
