|Prince of Wales overwhelmed by Japanese air power.|
Had a great day of playing Victory at Sea with Jon last Friday, when he rather gamely took charge of Force Z in its defence of Malaysia against the Japanese.
Historically, the Royal naval force courageously sallied out from Singapore to attack the Japanese invasion fleet but without any air cover, HMS Prince of Wales and HMS Repulse were sunk by Japanese land based bombers.
Using a linked set of scenarios discovered by Mark we attempted to recreate the fight but with HMS Indomitable, an aircraft carrier that should have been part of the force, boosting Jon's forces.
However, the first scenario has Force Z bump into the cruiser and destroyer screen used by the Japanese to protect their landings.
