Heeling hard over is the only option for Akagi, with her weak AA armament – but Hornet is nestled safely in the middle of the formation, surrounded by every heavy cruiser kanmusu you've got, and her own formidable armament besides. Maneuvering now will just scatter their firepower and spoil their fire-control solutions.

All you can do is hold your breath and pray as the abyssal torpedo bombers plummet towards your ships, drawing beads on your precious girls. You watch those lethal little dots hurtling downwards on a dozen screens, every ship, every girl turning their eyes and guns on them in a last, desperate attempt to deflect the iron fist.

The sky above the formation center rips apart as Maya, Takao, Tone and Chikuma all cut loose with their five-inch batteries, hurling a shield of smoke and shrapnel into the air over Hornet's head. The dive bombers scream into it – and *through,* chased by the flaming wrecks of their companions, but still coming in fast, the dark narrow silhouettes of F-18s hard on their tails as the Marines dive into their own flak without hesitation.

A strange sorrow rips through your heart, as if you're watching yourself watching the screen; a helpless observer screaming and shaking the fence barring you from the execution chamber where your charges await their fate.

The very air around Hornet seems to catch alight as her 20mm guns open up; her own complement almost outnumbering the light AA of her four escorts combined. They are the last ditch, the hail-mary in the last few heartbeats before impact. She IS putting her rudder over hard now, another last-breath attempt. Shoukaku screams – one one screen a trio of dive-bombers is seconds away from release, heading right for Akagi.

And then everything happens very, very fast.

>> No.41879731

Towering columns of spray obliterate Hornet's go-pro feed, and you hear the awful sound of her scream as a near miss staves in her side with its submerged shockwave. She reels, leaning into her desperate last-second turn and looks up in time to see an abyssal peeling away, its bomb a lethal round dot as it hurtles straight towards her -

- the go-pro goes flying, a brief glimpse of water its last transmission. You scramble for the other feeds, terror surging through your veins, hoping, praying that the afterimage in your retinas was accurate. The next feed is Sammy's, and there you see the snarled black cloud just above Hornet, her face slashed and bleeding from the shrapnel of the five-inch shell that just obliterated the bomb and bomber.

“THREE-SIXTY-FUCKING-NOSCOPE-WILLY-HOLY-SHIT-” Sammy is screaming. You slam your fist into the rickety card table serving as your desk, screaming despite yourself, “YES, YES YES” when Hornet vanishes in the ugly yellow-orange plume of a direct hit.

Shoukaku is sobbing something in Japanese behind you as two plumes of water appear off Akagi's side. Goto's saying something, everyone's saying something everyone's making somuchfuckingNOISE-

“Hornet, sitrep, Hornet, talk, come in, earth-to-fucking-HORNET, TALK TO ME, WHAT IS YOUR STATUS, HORNET-”

“Skipper-” someone grabs your arm firmly. A flash of white-hot rage bursts in your eyes and you hear someone hitting the floor a distance behind you.

“FUCKBU-oooph!” another impact.

She hoves out of the cloud of spray and smoke and fire, wounded but standing and-

It's an aircraft carrier, and her magazines didn't go or we'd be looking at pieces of her. So we have some time. Get her out of the fight (under tow if needed) and give her DC parties a fighting chance.

The computer screeches about G-warnings as you snap the Hornet up and over through a single steep yo-yo, rolling out with your nose pointed straight down. Finessing the pedals to pick out your target amongst the flak bursts and fellow F-18s chasing the foe, you shout in wordless triumph as the little trembling circle of the AIM-9s caged seeker finds its target, the snarling hungry growl of tone mingling with the roar of the rocket motor as your last Sidewinder leaps off the rail, twitching only twice before slamming into the strange thruster ports on the thing's rear. You slam the throttle forward, afterburner igniting behind you with a WHOOM! as you scream out of the sky, closing for guns on another diving bandit. You see their target; the eerie wake trailing a ship-sized nothing near Fitzgerald, the Burke without the hangar. Even as you watch missiles come screaming out of her foreward VLS, climbing straight at you on pillars of smoke and flame, lances hurling heavenward.

Firefighting crews on Burke's are issued these really neat flame-retardant jumpsuits to go with their hoses and things. I found Hate with one in a passageway, and before he could say one word, I said to him "if your next words involve "fire" and "ninjas" I will throw your still overboard."

Stick foreward and right rudder in a fast jink, using the yaw to increase roll rate to enter a hard guns-defense turn as quickly as possible, tracers flashing past to port. Pulling up, engine thundering away at military power and over the top in a hard defensive barrel roll as you acquire the abyssal fighter through your canopy, nosing up as he follows you into the rolling scissors. You corkscrew through the air with him for three revolutions before slamming the throttle forward into afterburner on your way down from the fourth, breaking hard and thundering away in the general direction of the fleet. You aim for Fitzgerald, praying they can put a Sea Sparrow down the abyssal's throats. You keep your head on a swivel, sashaying and jinking as slightly as possible as they spew tracers at you, keeping your Hornet unloaded for speed as much as you can. You snap your head 'round to check the other side and almost scream as the round snout of a radial engine flashes past your face and screams overhead. You rubberneck in time to see it merge with your pursuer – and his pal. The graceful, wide wings of a Zero are silhouetted against the sky as it pulls up into a hard vertical reversal, one abyssal following and the wingmonster circling around hard to the left.

The Zero reaches apex and pulls back hard, bringing his nose on-target a few degrees earlier than the abyssal. The cannons roar and chips of enamel and chitin go flying as the hostile disintegrates under 20mm shells. The Zero comes over the top, seeming to float as it slowly picks up speed in the dive towards the deck. You see him rolling left-right-left as much as possible to check his six past his wings, but the wingmonster anticipated his move and circled about to come screaming in on the deck right under the diving Zero's belly, with plenty of smash to match velocities when he pulls out. He's just drawing a bead when you give him a squirt from twelve hundred yards; the glowing tracers missing miserably, but forcing him into a guns-defense and spoiling his shot. Thundering past his beam at five-hundred knots, you eyeball for your new friend -

- and find him already turning towards you, approaching your wing. He's still distant, but through the oil-flecked canopy you see a humanoid figure snaking his arm about. You waggle your wings to confirm and turn towards his tail, beginning a defensive weave.

>> No.41881606

>all this panicked samefagging the moment one anon thinks an option is the wrong idea
Why is everyone going HURP DURP TURN FIGHT? You realize we just came out of a dive right? We have a Hornet with all external stores expended and energy up the ass, we can do things those abyssal prop planes can only dream of. Don't just assume the pilot is a idiot just because someone changed the wording of the vote to make it look dumb. We're down to cannons, main hydros damaged, with something on our tail. A cannon will suffice, we have secondary hydros for a reason, and that something on our tail will EAT SHIT as soon as we pull them into vertical scissors or a spiral climb. Go look up the Hornet's thrust-weight ratio and laugh, we can accelerate in a climb, they can't. There is more than one way to tango, not every dogfight is a turn fight.

The remaining attack craft should be bugging out, but the abyssal fighters want to FIGHT – and the whole escort of that second bomber gaggle seems to have latched onto your sorry ass. You keep weaving with the Zero, flicking your nose over, taking half-second squirts at the little pinpricks trying to climb up his ass and then weaving back into a guns-defense turn as they slide in to take potshots at you. They're not stupid either, and they've got the altitude – one will dip in for a go and while you're reacting to him his buddy will dip in from the side, trying to sneak in a shot under your blindside, your belly. The Zero pilot keeps with you for what seems like forever. You swat an abyssal off his tail, the incredible rate-of-fire of a modern gatling gun teaching the abyssal what a snap-shot can do, and the Zero manages another with the incredible throw-weight of his cannons. But after that it's just dip and nibble and threaten, neither of you having the ammo for much more.

Until the abyssals squander their altitude, that is.

Dogfighting an F-18 is a mistake few people live to make twice. You begin a flat scissors with the two on your tail; your Zero buddy snapping into a steep climb as you do so. You keep the reversals just hard enough to keep ahead of their probing tracers, and when they're almost in-synch and saddled up you snap the stick into the back-right corner and slam your rudder. The right wing stalls and your Hornet enters a violent right-hand horizontal spin, a snap-roll a mere few hundred feet over the water. The horrible hissing sibilance of abyssal engines screeches past and you cancel the roll as sharply as possible, standing on the rudder to slew your reticule over a foe barely a hundred yards distant. Blue fire flares from his thruster ports as he pours it on, trusting his acceleration, but it's too late – the GAU-61 belches a tongue of fire and the abyssal's tail vanishes in a cloud of shattered carapace, diving into the waves venting blue fire.

His pal snaps into a steep climb, rolling inverted at the top. You and the abyssal lock eyes, and you know you're fucked – low, slow, completely out of energy to counter with an upward turn. He comes in at you, his nose pulling for a full-planform shot from above as you desperately work the rudder and stick to jink without stalling -

- and the Zero calmly dips in and smokes him, the gentle curving arcs of cannon shells intercepting himbefore he can pick up any acceleration in the dive.

“-Bat leader, are you there, Bat, I-”

“Right side of formation,” you reply, “paired up with a Zero!”

“Afuckingwhatnow-”

“-just like that movie-”

“I'm okay!” you cry triumphantly. “God, god we CLOBBERED those bastards!”

The exhilaration of the victor sings through your blood and drips down your legs -

- you look down at the fine coating of blood sprayed around the floor and seeping through your knee-board, and then you notice the jagged hole in your canopy.

M61A1 Vulcan to be exact. The original M61 used linked ammunition and had problems with spent links being blown back into the plane by the wind and causing damage. The A1 version simply added a linkless drum feed. There is also an M61A2 version which is slightly lighter and spins up to full firing speed in .25 seconds instead of .4 seconds. This roughly doubles the number of shells the cannon can fire in the first half second, which is important for snap shots. However since this particular plane is a regular old Hornet and not the younger sexier Super Hornet it has the original M61A1.

Incidentally both cannons can fire 100 shells per second at full speed, this is rarely done for obvious reasons. Most fighters only carry about 5 seconds worth of cannon ammo.

Goto's talking.

Let him talk. Let him shout, let him scream – the dice have been cast, and all you can do now is weep as they come up snakes. Hornet reels out of the smoke, wounded, staggered, but intact – for now. Some of the Hellcats Hornet vectored her Hellcats into dove early to escape the violent mauling; they leveled out around five-thousand feet and are slanting towards Kaga now. Glide-bombing sacrifices the accuracy and safety of dive-bombing and even the meager advantage of hugging the deck, but it's the least susceptible to hard evasive, like the one Kaga's making now. Shiranui is blasting away with everything she's got, augmenting Kaga's decent AA suite, but the abyssals bore in relentlessly. You see Goto thrum like a plucked string when one of them connects, an armor-piercing bomb smashing into Kaga's side and bowling her over. Another one strikes her, detonating under her foot and sending her stumbling and tripping to face-plant in a wave with a grunt, her speed slackening considerably even as the remaining torpedo bombers release their payload, some of them burning, some still being savaged by the dogged SBDs. You watch one of the Dauntlesses run its prop into an abyssal's tail, then sink towards the waves for a desperate ditching attempt.

“They're making their run,” you hear Naka breathe in tones of whispered prayer. You turn to the next feed; from a Global Hawk that accompanied the Japanese CV's first strike force. They're in visual range of the abyssal fleet; a vast, sprawling thing; lethal little black dots around the distinctive rectangles of two flight decks, their foaming wakes revealing their recent hard turns. You look around, but Kaga's massive squadron of 27 Kates is still at five-thousand feet, splitting into two groups with three fighters escort each to catch the enemy in a hammer-and-anvil attack.

“What the fuck?” Goto asks, snatching up his remote and adjusting the drone's camera himself – focusing on six little white dots zipping over the waves. “What the fuck are they doing!? Tell them to break off, god dammit, tell them TELL THEM!”

“What? Who?” Akagi is asking, but Goto's already diving for a phone. “Get me Chichijima's seaplane base, get them now, NOW!” he screams at someone.

The distinctive shapes of six US-1 flying boats are zipping low over the water towards the massive abyssal fleet. As you watch, they single out a cruiser-sized ironclad on the edge of the escort screen and spread out to have their go; peeling away as their fish hit the water and start running. They're already turning for home when the abyssal fighter cover screams down into them, guns blazing.

“DAMMIT!” Goto screams, smashing the phone against the desk before kicking it over. “IDIOTS! FUCKING BAKAS-” he thunders along in frenzied Japanese, almost beside himself with impotent rage.

The fighters savaging the US-1s finish hacking up their victims, a few of them struggling away burning, another one with one engine out, and turn towards Kaga's oversized Kate squadron. The three Zeroes leap ahead and latch onto an abyssal each, doing their damndest to draw the rest onto them, but the abyssals are hardly deterred, boring in on the slow-moving green dragons relentlessly, climbing hard to meet them.

The second group of Kates is motoring away to their own attack perch a fair distance away, with no abyssal CAP harrying them – it seems they truly went all-in on their assault; holding back a handful of defenders. The sky, however, is so thick with flak that its truly terrifying to behold; the sea alight with the fire of abyssal AA barrels. It's so thick that you lose sight of the fleet entirely sometimes. No crude barrier barrage, this – the dark puffs track the poor aircraft relentlessly, green-winged planes sagging, burning and breaking apart as the shrapnel finds them. One of them drops out of formation, streaming oil from a shattered engine and arrows straight at the nearest ship in the escort screen, intending to make use of its torpedo. Japanese torpedo doctrine was simple – press the attack as close as possible, and guarantee a hit.

As the savaged first group tangles with the persistent fighters, you see something shaped like white balls come sprinting off the fore of the abyssal carriers – fighters launching. Two, for, six – they leap into the air and turn hard to dive right into the Kate's teeth at the last possible second.

The Kates do something you'd never heard of before – from five-thousand feet, they *dive,* plummeting right past the abyssal fighters before they can draw a bead, using the speed to dash over the final stretch. They loose their fish from a thousand yards, a dense spread, and turn sharply to meet the angry fighters, desperately attempting to form up defensive groups as the AA continues to rip them apart. Goto pans the camera over to find the first detachment already bugging out, having loosed their fish from slightly longer range.

A flash – a gout – an explosion, on the edge of the task force. All eyes dart to it in time to see another violent blast right after the first; whatever was left of the small ships raining down from altitude into a sea sprayed with burning oil.

“Who the hell got them?” Naka asks, but she's ignored as all eyes watch Akagi's two chutai of dive-bombers begin their run. They dive faster than the SBDs did, at a shallower angle, but they concentrate their attack properly, pulling out low over the water as their bombs detonate around the flat-top ignored by the torpedo planes. You hear yourself shouting in excitement with the others as the bright flash of fire blossoms on the carrier's deck, then another, and another. Goto is hammering the table with his fist, cheering like a madman, and you hear someone laughing dark and terrible nearby -

- you catch Naka's expression, and tone down as you realize its you. The hot, sick surge of wicked glee doesn't leave, however, one thought rolling around your head – there's more where that came from, you bastards.

The strike force leaves, unmolested by fighters but badly thinned out by the incredible AA fire; the nimble Vals doing their best to shoo bandits off the B5Ns tails. Goto cheers anew when the first abyssal flat-top shudders under the hammer-blow of a torpedo, the gout of water towering over the enemy and raining down on the slick, rounded beetle-like back of the massive wrongness trying to scuttle away from the searching bubble trails of your fish.

You did it. You really did it, at last, you NAILED the sons-of-bitches, both decks, out of action!

That's about when Kaga is torpedoed.

Hornet seems to have taken two bombs to her deck, which basically puts her plane-slinging capabilities out of action for the moment but she should be safe from sinking.
Kaga's taken a bomb to the side, and one that seems to have struck near her propellers and then of course torpedos hit you below the waterline. Her deck might still be functional, but she's at much higher risk of sinking between flooding and her magazines and hangars

Kongou was laid down as a Battlecruiser. But the British stopped building Battlecruisers after they all fucking exploded at Jutland, because some bonehead admiral saw "Battle" in the name and thought that meant they should fight Dreadnoughts.

If you ask Vickers-Armstrong, the HIJMS Kongo is an extremely large Heavy Cruiser.

Miss Arizona then proceeded to shit-post the thread, and the Corporal, to a stunning victory.

>So she's a large cruiser than?
Essentially. A Battlecruiser is an upsized heavy cruiser (not! a downsized battleship). Its intended role is to go very fast, murderfuck anything smaller than it, and frantically run away from anything bigger than it.

In the doctrine of the era, a Battleship sunk other warships to secure dominance of the sea lanes, while a Cruiser sunk freighters to *enforce* dominance of the sea lanes. The Battlecruiser comes in as a way to get the Cruisers to fuck off while not being forced to engage Battleships.

At least, that was the theory. Turns out that submarines were a lot better at denying naval trade than Cruisers ever were.

What the fuck are you talking about. Kongo was built before Jutland. Hell, the Royal Navy was so impressed with her design that they cancelled the last member of the Lion-class battlecruiser and had her redesigned along Kongo's lines. And even then, HMS Tiger STILL got into the Navy before Jutland.

She missed the entire war, was quickly rendered obsolete and even spent some time in Yokosuka as part of the 7th fleet.

Then she was refitted, covered in antennas and computer gear, then then was used as the NECPA. Sailing up and down the coast waiting for the day when the bombs fell and killed everyone on land so her men could order the other half of the planet killed in response.
