“In a golf cart with Harder and some corgis. Why?”

“What the fuck are you doing out there during a fucking air attack?”

You think about that for exactly two long moments before you give up trying to summarize the recent sequence of fatbuck-insane events.

“Because that's just how I roll, motherfucker,” you reply primly, and hang up. “Hang on, Harder – we're going to the field.”

He nods and braces his foot against the glovebox for stability as you floor the little cart once more. You have to swerve around a huge bomb crater near the base's housing units, but you reach the football field without further ado. Arizona is standing in the center of the field, looking calm as she coordinates the fire of the cruisers and destroyers; some of which have taken to the water and are sailing tight evasive circles as their AA guns fill the sky with tracers. Arizona herself is barely firing at all – her early-war 5-inchers can't elevate high enough for AA work. A quick scan of the sky reveals no more hostiles in sight; the girls are either putting up barrier barrages or firing at distant targets not readily visible with the naked eye. It's all heavy guns now; the light low-altitude AA has ceased its chatter. A few more SM-2s scream into the air from the south-west, near the Reagan's dock, but things are generally quieting down.

“Arizona!” you call out when you reach her. “Any casualties?”

She shakes her head.

“The flyboys?”

She gives you a solemn thumbs-up, and you sigh in relief. Your phone buzzes in your hand, and you move to cancel it when you see it's Hornet.

“Hey.”

“The human pilots are telling me they're bugging out,” she replies. “We spotted a wave of strike craft but they turned and ran when they saw our fighters.”

“Good,” you tell her. “Recover your planes, but keep a CAP airborne.”

“Copy,” she says crisply before hanging up.

You limp back to your damn golf-cart and slump in the seat, your headache and pained leg seeming to push through your thoughts once more. You cradle your forehead in your hands.

It's over.

Twenty minutes later, you're standing in Yokosuka's armored underground CIC, not far from the room where you commanded the first naval battle with American shipgirls. In your hands is a scanned copy of the base commander's handwritten list of damage.

“Doesn't look too bad, does it?” you comment.

“We got lucky,” someone says from behind you. Glancing over your shoulder, you see Goto entering. You make to rise, but he gestures for you to stay seated. He's carrying the long white box with that damned cane; you vaguely recall dropping it when you plucked Naka out of her wheelchair. “Where'd you find this?”

“One of the girls picked it up, gave it to me for delivery,” he says. “Kaga told me what you were up to. The hell were you doing running around when bombs were falling?” He looks honestly curious.

It's not entirely impractical, though.
She's on land so she wouldn't be sinking (though fubuki fumbled and cartwheeled plenty of times and didn't manage to sink by capsizing, go figure), and worst case scenario she might scratch her "outfit" or damage it a little when the recoil is stopped short by the ground.

Also consider that it's hard to coordinate an air defense network if you're trying to score kills yourself.

Think of the assault on Foy in Band of Brothers. Dike had well and truly fucked up. Winters wanted to retake command of his old company but was told off since he's now a colonel and needs to do colonel stuff. So he taps Speirs to relieve Dike, and Speirs runs through a village full of Germans and turns things around.

You swivel your chair around to face him, and shrug. “I was outside with Naka when it happened – didn't have much of a choice. I knew you and Admiral Thomas would beat me here, so there wasn't much point in stumbling in late, was there?”

Goto looks thoughtful. “I suppose that's true.” He snags a roller chair from a nearby desk and plops down next to you, reclining it as far as possible to stare at the ceiling. “Christ, it's been a long day already and it isn't even four o'clock.”

“Tell me about it.”

“No, you,” he rejoins. “Did they find the attacker?”

“No such luck,” you gripe. “The survivors just vanished a few hundred nautical miles out, and we have no idea where their carrier might be in the rather large potential range. You point at the computerized map that takes up most of the rear wall of the CIC, where the depressingly large search range is boxed out in red.

Goto grunts. “It's never that easy, is it?”

“No,” you reply. “No, it's not. I was just on the phone with the air wing commander from Yokota.”

“USAF or JSDF?”

“Both. They reported a sixty percent hit rate for air-to-air missiles and about fifty for the SAMs, long and short range. The Type 91 missiles did a bit better.”

Goto raises his eyebrows. “Really?”

“Because of that visible-light feature,” you explain. “Something about recording the target's silhouette at time of launch, and comparing it with the thermal track so flares can't fool them. Abyssals radar outline is....” you waggle your hand in air uncertainly and Goto nods, clearly familiar - “-and the infa-red is marginally better, but usually what you see is what you get.”

“Until they do that...”

“... transforming thing,” you finish, the mental image of a radial engine spinning torque-wise as the chitinous body of the abyssal explodes behind it fresh in your mind.

“Fifty, sixty percent,” Goto muses quietly. “I was hoping for better.”

“Me too,” you admit.

“Did the SM-2s do any better?”

“You'd have to ask Thomas, but I imagine he's got his hands full right now.”

Goto grunts, conceding the point. He leans over, invading your space without a care as he tries to read the paper in your hand. “So how bad is it?”

“Mostly superficial,” you reply. “The level bombers got clobbered pretty hard by the Patriots – and the batteries engaged some of their bombs in mid-air, apparently. A few buildings got flattened, but nothing terribly important.”

“Yeah,” you confirm. “Abyssal fighter crashed right into it. Through the drive-thru window, no less. Probably the one Harder shot down.”

“He what!?”

“Yeah. Firing his twin-twenty-mike-mike like a goddamn rifle. Nailed it in front of the NEX, and it went down due south, so...”

“Ha!” Goto snorts. “I like him already.” He reclines in his chair again, rubbing his eyes wearily. “Well, we're alive. I guess we should've expected it.”

“We didn't?” you ask. “We've got more missile launchers around this damn place than a Chinese parade.”

“Sure, but-” he sighs. “It's fucking Yokosuka. They must be pissed off something fierce if they're gunning for the best defended port in Asia. I never thought they'd actually do it.”

“A surprise attack on the main Japanese anchorage!?” you gasp. Goto takes his hat off and halfheartedly boffs you in the face with it. “Seriously, though. Sixteen months of constant operations, usually in home waters or the Sea of Japan and they've never had the balls to attack our shore installations – anyone's, much less Yokosuka.

“There was LA,” you remind him.

“An undefended target – or so they thought.” He shrugs. “But now we know there's a carrier in the area that's hot to trot.”

“And she won't be without friends,” you observe. He nods. “Lets put together a task force, then.”

The large aircraft on the aft end of the flight deck are indeed Vigilantes. They were initially outfitted for nuclear strike, but were eventually converted to photo-recon aircraft.

“Not much point in putting together a task force before we know where we're sending them,” you point out. “We need to scout around, first?”

“How, though?” he grumps in frustration. “They only show up on satellite recon when they feel like it and planes rarely spot them. It seems that the bastards just sink under the waves until they feel like striking.”

“We don't actually *know* how they work,” you point out. “If they really do vanish underwater, how long before an attack they tend to surface, if that dark cloud thing that seems to accompany them shows up only when we do or only when they manifest – we just don't know.” You jerk your thumb at the mapscreen behind you. “I did read the briefings. You've basically been reacting to their moves for sixteen months – that's all you could do,” you say hastily as Goto moves to object. “We both know that's no way to do things, but now I think we've finally got the numbers to make a difference.”

“How so?”

“Try to be on top of them as they manifest,” you reply. “Let's try to nail the bastards before they kill any civilians, this time.”

Goto's brow furrows as he thinks – and then he nods. “It's worth a shot,” he agrees. “And even if it doesn't pay off, it won't cost us, either. Who were you thinking of?”

Going to need at least one fleet carrier, plus appropriate escorts. Tone and Chikuma's scout planes could help cover ground while the carrier's air wing focuses on CAP.

Within a certain range, they could also rely on land-based aircraft. It'd put a sharp limit on their range, though; more than a couple hundred miles out, and your planes are spending a very large fraction of their fuel just getting on location.

Definitely need it to be a CTF if we're contemplating a long-range sortie.

There are two scenarios here where the recon planes spot the enemy.

Either they don't spot our planes, and we have a general idea of force and heading, and we can put together a task force.

Or they do spot our planes, and Tone and Chikuma get wiped out.

You're banking on a lot of things going our way with very high stakes, especially with the completely unknown capabilies of this task force. If they have American ships with them, for example, with AA radar, then the chances of the recon planes remaining undetected is essentially nil.

>> No.40026019

>>40025856
Because all that gives you is the location of the enemy fleet AT THAT TIME, and their course and speed.

If they change course after your floatplane leaves, that information is useless.

"Scouting", in the context of carrier warfare, is only useful if that contact report is quickly followed up by the largest strike you can muster, and you must do this before the enemy's scouts find you and vector their own strike.

Furthermore, because a carrier can only do one thing with its flight deck at a time- Spot, launch or recover, the more decks a fleet has the more effective it is. Part of why the Fast Carrier Task force was so efficient in the Pacific war was because they used CVLs to maintain their CAP and scouting patrols, reserving the big Essex decks for spotting and launching massive airstrikes.

They were usually teams of 1 Hellcat and 1 Helldiver or 2 Avengers and 1 Hellcat.

The CVL's did little to no scouting.

Abyssals they may be but they're still constrained by the same restrictions as shipgirls. And shipgirls, like the WW2 ships they embody, don't have planes flying at night.

“I was thinking of Tone and Chikuma,” you reply. “Abyssals can't hide from their planes with whatever trick they use against ours-”

“-if they're even around to be seen,” Goto points out.

You shrug. “That's one of the things we need to learn, after all. And this is the job those ships were built for.”

Goto nods. “Good point. But lets send some destroyers with them for extra AA protection – if I try to send two heavy cruisers out looking for carriers alone, Mikuma and Mogami will literally smother me in my bed.”

You snort and nod. “Good point. Will destroyers be enough, though?”

“Sure,” Goto says, pointing at the map. “Human aircraft can't FIND abyssals, but they work just fine against them when they DO show up, and most of that area is within range of Super Hornets.”

You stand up. “Sure. But if they do pop up, we might not reach them in time.” you sigh. “And I doubt 7th fleet will be keen on keeping planes on station along with tankers for them for a week or two.”

“How about an escort carrier?” Goto suggests.

“If we're sending carriers, then why bother with aviation cruisers at all?” you point out. “And nothing short of a carrier task force can put up enough aircraft to defend against a carrier task force.” You sigh. “To say nothing of being a more attractive target. “God, I wish we had the Atlanta to send... or just more American DDs.”

An Aegis cruiser, usually a Ticonderoga Class, is a guided missile cruiser that was designed to defend 1980s US Carrier groups from hundreds of Russian supersonic and hypersonic anti-ship missiles. It carries a hugely powerful phased array radar and hundreds of surface to air missiles. At a 50-60% hit rate, one of them could knock out every plane an abyssal carrier would have on board.

Vice Admiral Robert L. Thomas, commander of the US 7th forward deployed fleet, salutes in return – and gets right down to business. “You need a lot of anti-aircraft in a compact package, correct?”

“Yes sir.”

“What does that sound like to you, Admiral Settle?”

“...”

“You should be able to solve this,” he says with a small smile.

“An Arleigh-Burke, sir,” you reply hesitantly.

“Exactly. Fitzgerald and Mustin are in good shape for deployment – I'll attach one to each of your... cruisers.” His mouth quirks as he visibly wrestles with the idea of them being... girls... but vanishes just as quickly. “That'll take care of your air defenses, right?”

You nod. As devilish as tracking abyssals with electronic sensors can be, the 5-inch guns on the Burke's alone are hideously effective at AA against their slow-moving aircraft, even with simple contact or estimated-range fuzing. Modern computational power is incredibly effective.

“Sorry I haven't introduced myself before,” Vice-Admiral Thomas says. “I only just got back to base, and things have been.. hectic.”

“Same here, sir. I understand.”

He nods. “I'll make the calls to the skippers now, and get everything else in order.” He steps past you, making for the bank of Important Color-Coded Phones set against one wall.

You sigh, slumping a little – you're sure you look like shit. Vice-Admirals have a way of doing that to people two stars below them.

“I'll attach two of our girls to each cruiser,” Goto adds sotto-voice. “Just in case they get engaged in a surface action.”

You nod agreement. “Uh, Goto, one more thing.”

“Eh?”

“The CNO called me right before all this shit went down.”

He gives you a lopsided grin. “And what did he say?”

An AEGIS cruiser basically means a Ticonderoga-class cruiser, which is equipped with the AEGIS radar/SAM system.

Many American destroyers are also equipped with AEGIS systems, but they aren't cruisers.

>>40026121
Even if you assume 10 hours of night-time and 30-knot cruising speed (which will burn fuel like mad), that's a max of about 300 nautical miles they can cover before morning, and some of that may have to be used to sprint back inside the land-based air coverage envelope. Even the short-legged American strike aircraft had a combat radius of 100-150 miles, and if the Abyssals are smart, they'll be turning tail. They'd have to be very lucky to find the Abyssals in that single night.

No. The Gato class (like all US subs) was designed like U-boats were; as commerce raiders. Thus they could dive deeper (to avoid ASW attack) and turned rather faster (for the same reason.)

“He told me to ask you about a secretary, or something?” you reply. “I already have an assigned staff, though, so...” you shrug. “I should probably introduce myself at some point,” you say, feeling abashed. So far the most contact you have with them is the scheduling app on your smartphone, which is updated automatically, and the occasional e-mail. Admirals are supposed to have a staff, for sure, but... it's still weird.

You really, really never expected to reach flag rank.

Goto blinks. “Oh. Oh! No, he's talking about one of the -” he drops his voice and cuts his eyes at Admiral Thomas at the other side of the CIC - “shipgirls.”

Now you blink at him. “What.”

“He's talking about picking a shipgirl as a secretary.”

You contemplate the idea of using a shipgirl – the returned supernatural terrifyingly-powerful eldrictch essence of a goddamned sunken warship – as a typewriter monkey, and your brain locks up for a second.

“For what purpose?” you inquire.

“Not as a paper-pusher – for the most part,” he clarifies. “The shipgirls are a real problem to service, in all senses of the not finishing that sentence you know damn well what I mean, because we can't find personnel with the security clearances AND the psychological profiles to interact with them safely.”

“Security clearances?”

“Yeah. We need to be sure they won't have a sudden attack of religion or dumbfuck fear and try to poison them. Why do you think they eat at the officer's mess?”

You frown as you think about it. “So it's even hard to find cooks?”

“Very. And for handling more personal or delicate issues, it tends to come a lot better coming from another shipgirl.” He leans back in his chair, idly tapping the armrest. “Of course, that's not all there is to it.”

You squint at him suspiciously. “... really.”

“Nope.”

A strange feeling of apprehension crawls up your spine. “Don't tell me... don't tell me that they're...”

Goto smirks, making a little circular motion in air with his finger, egging you on.

“... commanders?” you evade.

He snorts. “Nah, they don't give orders. Can you imagine the shitstorm that would cause in the media? Their other role... to be frank, it's as a bodyguard.”

Bodyguard? From whom?

Pissed-off Japanese carriers?

Also, congratulations Planefag, for coming up with a halfway fucking reasonable reason to have the embodiment of a warship be a secretary, when there are plenty of perfectly competent secretaries out there. Probably even enough of them with the requisite security clearances, particularly if you poach from pre-existing secretarial staffs with top-secret clearances.

“... huh.” You rub your head. “Well... I guess it's not the first time I've hand-picked a subordinate.”

Goto grins. “Like that Lance Corporal that bugs you all the time?”

“Not quite. I think he adopted me. Like a cat.” You rub your chin thoughtfully. “Does it have to be one of my girls, because-”

“Between silent-as-the-literal-grave,” Goto says without a trace of humor, “and the likes of Willie or Sammy... yeah, no. It'd be great for relations if you picked a Japanese ship, and the media would love it.”

“Just what I need,” you mutter. “I don't even know how many of them would have me, thought. Somehow I think there's not many who are eager to push paper for a yank.”

“I can make you a short list of volunteers,” Goto promises.

You think silently, studying Goto's face. “... so who's your secretary ship, anyway?”

Goto gives you a slow, lazy smile, leans back in his chair, and makes a grand show of checking his watch. “Well that's a neat story, but I don't think we've got time for it now. It's almost five.”

You stare at him for a long, antagonistic moment, but his shit-eating grin doesn't subside one tiny bit. “You know, Settle, it'd be absolutely terrible for international relations if you stood up one of our lovely ship-girls.”

“H-how-”

“I have ears eeeeverywhere~” he says, waggling his fingers. “Primarily in the form of really chatty cute little destroyers. Besides, Shoukaku seems to have taken a shine to you. You don't want to disappoint her, do you?”

“B-but,” you sputter, “the base was literally just attacked. The seat of all US Naval Operations in the western Pacific has just been attacked, we haven't even put out the goddamn fires yet-”

“-and I will happily take care of everything,” Goto says smugly. “Besides, most of that's the base commandant's job, or 7th fleet.”

You scowl at him – he's right. Your authority is almost entirely limited to your few shipgirls and theoretically the numerous fuzzy PT boats. “You- you-”

“Dirty backstabbing jap!?” Goto says with feigned horror. “My my, what if someone heard you, Admiral Settle? Better hurry up, time waits for no man!”

“You're not concerned about this!?” you say, aghast. “I have a job to do, dammit, I'm sure she'll-”

“Oh, no,” Goto sniggers, glaring at you from beneath his brows. “Oooh, no. If I had to deal with that shit, so do you. No skating on this one. Have fun~”

You stand up with half a mind to visit mayhem on him, but he just scuttles away across the CIC in his rolly chair, snickering.

Fuck, you think.

Fuck, fuck, FUCK.

I really, really hope the Helena shows up. She kicked so much ass in the Solomons campaign before she got torpedoed that Japanese propaganda broadcasts called her a US secret weapon. They thought she had some king of 6" machine gun instead of conventional turrets because her rate of fire was so high. Her radar fire control system let her land first salvo hits on maneuvering targets at night, too.

The continuing story of torpedosluts

The rest of the morning wasn't nearly as... exciting. I wanted to walk Shiranui back, but she assured me that she was fine, and Kitakami was giving me weird looks. The two of us just took a walk around base, a normal occurrence for us. Kitakami seems to enjoy what little nature we have on base. She once said to me: “People bother your less if you're moving.” I agree that there's some truth in that. We're not out too long, as it starts to heat up quite quickly with the midday sun.

- - -

We're back at our room, I'm in the bathroom straightening out my hair when I hear a knock on the door.

“Kitakami, can you see who it is?”
“Dooon't wannaaa~”
“Pleeeeease?”
“Oooooh kay~”

I hear Kitakami open the door and then comes an immediate snort of displeasure.

“What do you want?”
“I uh-uh-uh was just trying to find out if-”

I look out towards the entrance and see Kitakami slowly closing the door on the girl.

“Wait! Wait! I just trying to find out if this belonged to you!”

I see a pair of hands thrust out a portable radio through the doorway. Oh... Hmm, I've seen that before.


“Isn't that the american's radio?” I call out from the bathroom.
“Eh? It could be.” Kitakami replies.
“Ah, well thank you!”

Kitakami closes the door as soon as the doorway is cleared. I finish fixing my hair soon after.

“Do you want to see what's going on in the common room, Kitakami?”
“Ehhh... Maybe later...”

I sort of expected this reply, unfortuantely.

“Well, I'm going to go hang out there, I'll be waiting for you.”
“Mm. Bye Ooichi.”

It feels wrong to leave her here alone. Maybe I'm being selfish but I don't want to bored all day.

As I enter the common room I'm greeting to the loud noise of an electric motor grinding. Yuubari greets me from behind the small bar area, where she's operating a blender.

“Aha! Ooi! What's going on?”
“Just seeing who's around...”
“I hear ya, but where's your partner in crime? The artificial difficulty to your dark souls, so to speak.”
“Huh? Oh, you mean Kitakami? She's just.... she said she would catch up later.”

Yuubari nods. “I see, I see. Anyway, I'm making smoothies, do you want one? I've got all kinds of fruit.”

“That would be nice, I'm not too picky about what's in it so you can surprise me.”

As Yuubari reaches for ingredients for the smoothie underneath the counter I peer around the room. A few girls are watching TV, while Fubuki seems to be practicing with the dartboard. A couple of girls come this way; Kiyoshimo and one of her sister ships, Hayashimo. They take a seat up on the stools to my right.

“Do you girls want one too?”
“Yes! Yes! Please make one for me Yuubari-chan!” Kiyoshimo answers with gusto.
“Strawberry daiquiri. Hard.”
“Ahaha... I don't have anything like that.”

A few minutes pass of us intently watching Yuubari mix, blend, and pour our smoothies into tall glasses, placing one in front of each of us. I take a sip of mine. It's got a mostly strong melon flavor, with hints of strawberry and bannana. It's really nice.

“It's delicious Yuubari, thank you.”
“No problem, I had to practice a lot to get it right anyway.”

The other two ships also offer their praises. Kitakami is really missing out... Kiyoshimo interrupts our quiet drinking

Yuubari leans over towards me, a sly smile on her face.

“Heyyy Ooi, you should totally come over tomorrow. I just got a big tv and this super cool sound system, and it would be a shame just to watch anime by myself. Kitakami is invited too, of course.”

Shiranui had already invited me to come over on that day.

“Tomorrow isn't really good, what about tonight or in a couple of days?”
“Hmm Hmm! You drive a hard bargain but I think tonight will be fine.”

The second floor door opening gets my attention and I see Kitakami standing in the doorway, a look of displeasure on her face when she sees who I'm sitting next time. I think she's about to turn around and walk away but she just grits her teeth and takes at seat on my left. Yuubari offers her a smoothie, Kitakami accepts.

“Rough morning, Kitakami?” Yuubari asks.
“You're not the first person to say such a thing.”
“You just have to take a more positive attitude on things. I once heard Kongou singing a song about that. It was pretty catchy.”

I poke Kitakami, “Yuubari invited us over later tonight, are you up for it?”
“Huh? Yeah, that's fine.”
“That's great then, I got this movie called Patlabor that we should totally watch.” Yuubari cheerfully replies.

The room's attention is suddenly caught by the unmistakable thumps of someone running up the stairs. The stairwell bursts open and out comes Kongou sliding on her knees, both arms pointing towards the door from which came.

“LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! I present to yooouuuu a ne~w face!”

From behind Kongou appears one who must be one of the American ships, a stoic looking expression on her face, followed by Haruna.

From behind Kongou appears one who must be one of the American ships, a stoic looking expression on her face, followed by Haruna.

“The American Battleship, Arizona!”

Kiyoshimo's face lights up and and makes a 'haaaa~' noise as she sees the American battleship. She launches out of her seat and stops not even a meter away from the somewhat surprised battleship. Kiyoshimo immediately launches into a barrage of questions which catches even the … excitable … Kongou off-guard. Haruna kneels down next to Kiyoshimo, before speaking to her.

“Well, you see, Arizona-san doesn't really talk a lot. She's very quiet.”

Kiyoshimo's expression saddens just for split second before perking up again.

“Oh! So she's like that one expression, 'Don't talk and hit people with a big stick'! Or maybe she's sworn an oath of silence for her fallen comrades? Ah, no her voice is really her secret weapon, experimental sonic based weaponry!”
“Haruna isn't too sure....”

Kongou suddenly jumps up and whispers something into Arizona's ear. The latter turns to look at Kongou who gives a few quick nods. Arizona then reaches down and pats Kiyoshima on the head.

“Haaa! I hope we can become good friends Arizona-s..... Ms Arizona!”
“I'm gonna puke.”

I turn around to Kitakami. She doesn't look particularly sick.

“Eh? Did the smoothie not sit well with you?”
“Huh? What? No, not that.”

Before I can ask what was Kitakami was talking about the unmistakable sound of a warbling air raid sirens.

Honestly, I'm not sure if we WANT any of the Iowas to come back. Most of the ships so far met violent ends, many of their crew perishing with them. This traumatized them, but also made them somewhat flawed -- and hence more *human*.

The Iowas never went down.

she seems to act more like a concerned daughter than a romance interest. And a flat chest rarely works well for waifuing.

She is not daughteru, under any circumstances. But she is also not Waifu material. She is adorable silent bodyguard, she can be loved as family and treated as such, but any kind of lewd relationship is right out.

She's more like a protective older/twin sister. We can't protect her better than she can protect herself (at least physically), but we can still help her, and it would be weird to think of her sexually.
