The Bridge of the USN South Dakota
TF77 Flag Ship USN BB South Dakota
Operation Louisville Slugger
English Channel off LeHavre
Admiral ground radar is picking up 30 more boggies that just appeared near the bombers. They appear to be traveling at a much higher rate of speed than the bombers.
How much faster damn it!
They are going at around 400 mph and will be in range in 15 minutes.
Shit! Some kind of missle. Captain order a simultaneous turn to line abreast, full flank speed heading 345. Get Kenney on the horn and tell those Air Corps flyers to hit the PE-8 mother ships with all they got. They must have some kind of guidance. Get that brit expert up here and fire up those gizmos they used against the German guided bombs. Rig for impact. All AA guns look to the east northeast for targets. Keep our flyboys close just in case.
