Shut up Jess. Your just lucky your not in some Russian prison camp. If we hadn't hitched a ride on that convoy we'd be digging holes for the Reds and sipping on borscht. Just be glad you got those K rations instead of some beet soup. I do like their vodka. Remember that night in Berlin when we snuck over to that commie outfit near the barn? Yeh I do like that vodka. I wonder what made those guys attack us like the did. That bunch sure seems nice enough. I wonder what got into them?
The probably just wanted our K rations.
Shut up Jess.

We can expect them to test our defenses against their B29 Super Fortress soon from the information you have given me. I am confident that we will be able to defeat a major raid if given the information about when and where it is to be. We have had over two years to study the B29 and we have developed 2 main counter measures to their existence. We only lack the numbers of weapons needed to cover all of our major strategic targets. With the proper preparation we will be able to confuse and confound the bombers and their escorts. They will not be able to determine just what we have done that has enabled us to destroy them in great numbers. I estimate that we will achieve a 20% or better destruction rate with a 80% chance of shooting down any bomber carrying an Abomb.
The NKVD is taking care of the when and where Sergo. I have been assured that we will have at least two weeks notice of the impending attack.
Then there should be no delay in my receiving that information!
Yes Sir Mr. Sergo!
Oh excuse me your Excellency…I get carried away sometimes.
By the way Sergo what do you need 100 hamsters for?
That actually is a personal project comrade.
Just make sure it does not interfere with your work Sergo.
I would not dream of it comrade.
You are dismissed Sergo... Major Nikolai recall Sokolovsky to the Kremlin. I want to discuss the location of the Yankees.
They seem to have disappeared. There are at least 10 divisions unaccounted for from all indications and reports from the NKVD.
I would know nothing about that comrade.
Of course you don’t Sergo that’s why I need to talk to Sokolovsky. I said you are dismissed Sergo.
Thank you comrade.
July 11th, 1946
What the hell happened out there today Leahy?
Well sir it appears that the Reds have made operational the German AR 234…Hitler’s Blitz Bomber. They came in under the radar and climbed to 6,000 ft in seconds and then dive bombed the battleships. All the attention was on the East where the buzz bombs were coming out of the sun.
It kind of reminds me of what happened at Midway where all the Japanese were shooting down the torpedo planes and failed to notice our dive bombers coming in. Then the gunners that did see them they thought they were those Brit Meteors jets. We have testimonials that they were ordered not to fire until too late. We just had no idea that the Reds had a jet bomber operational.
Here's the report sir. The South Dakota is down with over 750 deaths and the Missouri is a floating hulk being towed to England. They sustained 591 casualties.
That's quite a butchers bill. How did the South Dakota go down so fast?
She was hit three times by 1000lb armor piercing bombs. The third bomb caused the forward magazine to explode which broke her back. Much like the HMS Hood that went down in 3 minutes after a lucky hit by the Bismarck.
So the Reds are cashing in on their captured German Wonder Weapons and scientists. You say it was a jet bomber?
We have jet fighters in the area do we not?
Yes sir but they were ordered not to enter the naval combat zone for fear of friendly fire incidents by Admiral Lee. The USAAF P80s were also lured into chasing after a couple of dozen decoys. The Navy wanted it that way claiming they could take care of their own. After all they have over 20 Fleet carriers on station right now. What they lacked was their own jet fighter.
And why is that?
They wanted to develop their own and refused to work with the Army on an operational P80 variant. Instead they are trying to develop their own based on some German model but are having trouble with the tail section. So meanwhile they were caught too low and too slow to catch the new Soviet jet job. There is good news.
And what would that be?
The Soviets appear to only have 6 jet bombers and one was shot down.
What about those reports about the V1 Buzz Bombs hitting the ships.
Well Sir it appears they where a decoy all along. No one saw one of the V1s hit any ship.
Alright Leahy I'm ordering Nimitz to use the P80 until your own plane is a reality. We need the Navy and we need them bad for our plans to proceed. You'll just have to use the P80 for the meantime. From what I understand it is the fastest and best plane in the air. The Navy has to be able to defend itself now. Not tomorrow but now.
Yes Sir. On another subject Sir…we just lost two battleships…
Yes I understand. Damn it we just stayed a little too long. We can't underestimate the Reds again. End Operation Louisville Slugger now.
It was only a delaying tactic anyway. Just to buy us some time and that’s what it did. Two weeks and a very steep price for old Joe to swallow. That ought to slow him up a bit next time he decides to run through an open door just because it’s open. Send my condolences to all involved and I will address the nation on Wednesday about the losses of two fine ships and hundreds of brave young men.
Well put sir. How long before you think the Reds will figure out our real plan?
Hopefully not for another month at least we should be in position by then. At least that is the plan. You are dismissed Admiral … Churchill is calling and he is a real windbag.
Lay back Admiral you’ve been wounded. Corpsman over here.
What hit us George? What the hell was that? The flames…the fire…smoke…what's that god awful smell?
I don’t know Sir it all happen so fast. We didn’t ever have time to react…Sir…Sir…Never mind Corpsman he’s dead. PREPARE TO ABANDONE SHIP!
I can here em Admiral. It's those Buzz Bombs alright.
Give the order to fire. Fire with all we got. Put up a wall of flack to the East so that they will have to fly through. Fire!
Over TF 77 English Channel
Jees…they got the South Dakota and Mighty Mo. Crap now their shooting at us. Red Flight climb to 12000 feet…make that 4000 meters…Damn NATO…oh no they got Willy. Jees can’t they tell which one’s are the bad guys? Climb Red Flight CLIMB. They're shooting at anything that flies.

06:01 Red one…Red four…I’m on his tail when he climbed taking fire from tail gunner… left wing hit… I’m going in… Red four get out…get out… Got my first kill. That will teach you Yankee. Never try and shoot down a Terror Bomber from the rear. Now to do what I was trained to do. Split S…flaps…damn anti air…they didn’t train us for this much. This is too much for me to make it. It’s like a wall of explosions. Ha...there shooting in the wrong direction. What are they shooting at? Never mind if you die…die killing them. Line it up just like training. That ship is huge. Much bigger than the Soyuz we use for training. Steady…steady…release now. Pull up…pull…pull…now go, go, go. Speed is my only defense. Look in periscope. No one following. Ahh too bad Yakoff is down. Looks like two ships hit. Such explosions. I even feel pity for the sailors. They are just pawns for the capitalists. Pawns that need to be killed to save the vast minions. Keep your mind on survival Yuri. Keep your mind clear. Make haste less a Shooting Star comes up from behind.
English Channel off Le Havre, France
Admiral…six bogies just pop up on radar out of nowhere and we have unofficial radio chatter urging us to open up with ever gun we got. Some kind of jet bomber...?
What do you mean from nowhere? Never mind…How unofficial is the request.
It came from a CAP flight...Red flight I believe.
Johnson's the flight leader...He's a rookie...A CAP flight…never mind we can’t take chances. Give the order to fire on anything that can’t be positively identified as ours. Belay that. It's probably a couple of those 2 engine Brit Meteors that strayed into our airspace after those missiles. Order the lookouts to keep an eye on em but don't shoot till we have a postive identification.
