On 25 October 1944, Admiral Oldendorf's old battleships (most of which had been raised from the mud of Pearl Harbor) crossed the 'T' of Admiral Nishimura's force, annihilating it in the last battleship action in naval history. Admiral Shima with a smaller force of cruisers and destroyers arrived a short time later, but decided to retreat rather than face certain death (although he still lost a light cruiser and two destroyers).
The USN is side 1, and the IJN side 2. For the Japanese, divisions 1 and 3 are Nishimura's force (placed closest to the US forces), and divisions 2 and 4 represent Shima's force, placed near the bottom of the map). You can experiment with placing Shima's divisions closer to Nishimura's, to see if it would have improved the odds any. Some of the Allied ships are left out due to size limitations, and also partly for play balance.Due to the lopsided nature of the scenario, recommend setting the AI to aggressive when playing the Americans. When playing the Japanese side, treat it as a death ride, trying to sink as many Americans ships as possible before being wiped out.
