On the 6 th island, the US military has consolidated the large-scale beaches, landed in 6 games and seized a medium-sized airport in 3 places. The main force of the 6 th army has broken through the Japanese defense line in the northern part of the island, and some paratroopers have joined forces to land on the island. The total strength of the troops has exceeded 350,000. At the same time, it is responsible for supporting the 6 th war. The US naval fleet is still cruising near the island. Their arrays include two new Mexico-class battleships and one Pennsylvania-class battleship. Two Colorado-class battleships and a North Carolina-class battleship, plus six light and heavy cruisers and more than a dozen destroyers, all look majestic from a distance. At the end of the line of sight, an Essex-class aircraft carrier and three Borg-class escort aircraft carriers are closely guarded by a group of light cruiser destroyers to board the 6 th Army’s fast and effective flight cover.

The US Navy has invested heavily in the Japanese garrison on the island at one stroke, and the Japanese garrison will not turn a blind eye. Shan Wu, the chief of the Japanese joint fleet, will not be fooled by just six semi-old battleships and three aircraft carriers that are not absolutely the main force. The former hunters naturally lurk not far away, and the US Sixth Army airmen and naval airmen have firmly grasped the situation of the Mariana Islands. The Japanese garrison still sent residual planes-6-based reconnaissance planes and fighter jets, The water reconnaissance plane is carrying line bombers and transport planes. Even though the remaining small airports don’t have the ability to land at night, the Japanese army is still desperately searching the surrounding waters. It’s busy at night. The American aviation soldiers didn’t stop fighting planes at all. Nearly 100 sorties were dispatched back and forth to shoot down and injure more than 19 Japanese planes!
Shortly after dawn, the fleet flew from the northwest appeared on the high-power radar screen, and the alarm sounded at the three airports in Saipan. In just one minute, the first 6-base fighter plane was ready to take off on the runway. Looking at the apron around the runway, those p47 and f4u were either on their way to the runway or waiting for the propeller to fly for a short time in the morning, and soon the air was filled with the burning smell of jet fuel. The unique roar enveloped the whole airport shape, urging people to heat their nerves, encouraging people’s blood and making them excited irresistibly!
At the same time, the deck of four U.S. aircraft carriers on the sea near Saipan, which is about 200 kilometers away, is also a busy scene. Fighters of f4f ships have been arranged neatly in a short time, and one after another has slipped off the deck. In a short time, the fleet will have more than 30 light blue and blue gray Hawk hovering. According to the volume and normal model ratio of these four aircraft carriers (one is specially built as a combat carrier, and three are modified from cargo ships), they can send more than ten fighters to meet at a time. Although the number is small, if the tactics are proper, they can still support the fleet
The two sides saw each other in the blue sea at 7: 04 p.m. when the radar guided the US fighter jet group taking off from Saipan to directly attack the Japanese warship fleet. Three minutes later, p47, a sailor belonging to the 6th Army of the United States, took the lead in launching rockets at a distance of four kilometers ―― this sharp weapon was ordered by the 6th Army of the United States and produced by Krupp Arms Company of Germany, and was improved on the basis of the prototype weapon of the German Army. On February 14th, 1943, the US air force was officially installed. Engineers in Germany helped 3oo P47s to become the first beneficiaries of these German weapons. An equal number of American pilots received skill training and live-fire drills.
Self-propelled fighters can fight all over the Pacific, and the Japanese air force has unconsciously lagged behind in the research of new equipment, and their Italian allies have failed to make up for it too much in these aspects. At this moment, most Japanese pilots still don’t know that they have a much longer range and quite amazing power than machine guns. They are pouncing on American fighters as fiercely as usual and winning as easily as Shan Ying attacks birds, but they come to 6om with a tail flame. M-class rockets opened their eyes. A bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang
In a short while, more than 60 fighter planes covered a considerable number of attack planes and appeared in more than 4ooo meters. However, in the face of the US military’s new radar, they were concealed and received instructions from the war headquarters. f4u was already on high standby and immediately greeted the extra-large propeller "bending" the inverted gull wing. Such a strange shape is unique in this era, but this is not grandstanding, but engineers are forging smart rivets. The spot welding technology is buried in the fuselage supercharger and hidden in the side wing radiator, which makes the aerodynamic principle swing to the fullest, and finally creates a classic fighter-it is also the only active fighter in the US military that can compete with the German Fokker Woolf 19o fighter in the war drill!
In order to cover the attack plane with a slow cover, four squadron fighters rushed to meet the f4u fleet without hesitation. Because the formation was relatively scattered, only five-frame fighters were unfortunately "caught" in the face of the US rocket attack. After a moment of head-on anger, more than a hundred fighters were left, and then a group of experienced Japanese pilots struggled to hold back the US "pirates" so that they could intercept the "99 Ship Explosion" with plasters on their fuselage and bombs hanging on their bellies.
At 7: 31 p.m. local time, the American battleship group cruising near the island sounded the attack alarm, and the sentries on duty at the observatory saw the black spots from the horizon through the telescope. In the Mariana naval battle that ended not long ago, many main ships of the US Navy were attacked by Japanese warships and sank. This time, the American officers and men fought for revenge and honor, and they knew very well that if they were defeated by the naval battle again, the situation in the Pacific War would irretrievably fall into the abyss!
The battle warning broadcast by wire has already spread all over the Mariana Islands. Every American combat unit has drifted on the surface of the water. Battleships, cruisers and destroyers have accelerated the ship’s weight and anti-aircraft guns. Those officers and men who have boarded the 6 islands, 6 armies and 6 naval teams have also prepared their response personnel, properly placed them in bunkers or disguised themselves. Machine guns and anti-aircraft guns have been deployed around important positions.
The first Japanese bombers flying to the island symbolically dropped aerial bombs on the US-occupied airports and beachheads. More attack planes focused their attention on the offshore mobile American ships. Even though there are dozens of American fighter planes waiting in front and American escort ships are ready to set up a strict fire protection network in the middle and low places, these dozens of Japanese warships are still flying across the island to the east without hesitation. Those are more deadly and attractive than delicious bait …

"Did you fight?"
At the newly-built George Airport in Saipan, a group of standard pilots of US Army Flight 6 dressed as German volunteers looked up at the sky. Although they could not directly see the situation of China’s engagement, they could still roughly infer the evolution of the war situation from the departure time and war radius of the US fighter group (-)
"When will it be our turn to attack?"
When I asked this question more than a week ago, the situation was different. Now there are many more "Made in Germany" in the US military airport in the central Pacific island-brand-new F-pair rockets, 20 mm machine guns and 131 mm heavy machine guns are parked in the temporary hangar next to the backup runway, and the fuel tanks are full at Saipan airport. These carefully overhauled F é ns are gently knocked. Although ludendorff tries his best to maintain a calm and obedient attitude, he feels humbled to be locked in the cabin together.
"Help yourself when the door is open!"
A young and polite Italian navy lieutenant said very politely after entering the door, "Mr. Major, please go to the command room at Bruni School!"
"I am a prisoner, not your guest!" Ludendorff still stuck to his stubbornness, but he stretched out his hand without smiling. He was also curious about the situation outside, so he adjusted his dress and followed the second lieutenant to the bridge operation room.
"Considering that breakfast was a little early today, I specially asked the restaurant to prepare afternoon tea!" Bruni politely asked ludendorff to sit down. It seems that those unpleasant conversations two hours ago have been thrown to Java by him.
"I can’t get used to your Italian attitude towards life!" Ludendorff sat down with a cold face. "If Ge wants to get any news from me, I’m sorry you won’t!"
"No, of course not!" Bruni put his hands together. "I am a devout Catholic and despise war and killing in my heart!" In fact, the Japanese asked us to do our best to escort their main fleet, which is a bad job! "
"It’s not surprising that they invited you here for a sightseeing holiday!" Ludendorff said rudely, "In fact, we almost let them taste the power last night!"
"That must be interesting!" Bruni looked at ludendorff sympathetically. "I guess … Americans haven’t finished listening to your advice. An experienced veteran like you has the ability to seize opportunities like an old hunter in the Bavarian forest!"
"Bavarians are not good at naval battles!" Ludendorff’s discourse is still at the top corner.
"Hey, so you’re not from Bavaria, Wü rttemberg? Kholshtein? " Bruni deliberately made a mistake, but this time he shouldn’t have made a small mistake. ludendorff was not a famous family, but after all, he was a famous figure like erich ludendorff, who led a series of large-scale attacks during World War I and almost touched victory in the offensive in 1991 ―― Germany’s defeat was attributed to "being stabbed in the back". Hindenburg, the main generals of the Kaiser, not only failed to be tried, but still enjoyed a high reputation in Germany after the war, which is a direct proof!
Major ludendorff replied with a straight face as if he had been greatly humiliated, "Prussian Posen!"
"Oh … the core of Prussia’s great Prussian Germany!" Bruni hurriedly send compliments.
Ludendorff’s expression is still dignified. He slowly picked up the elegant fragrance of the teacup and almost made him forget the fact that he was on the battlefield.
Bruni eagerly buttered up, "I have reported your situation to the fleet commander and asked him for approval to send you back to Europe, and I can personally guarantee that you will never return to China as a prisoner of war!"
Although ludendorff was a little tempted by this discussion, he didn’t want to show it. He casually glanced out of the porthole. "Are you going to follow the Japanese fleet’s ass like this?"
"We mean to meet the Japanese fleet, but the fuel consumption makes us have to maintain a more economical navigation. Therefore … we are very pleased to find that the distance between our Japanese fleet is getting bigger and bigger, but it is gratifying that our main fleet has arrived! You will see our big fleet in two hours! "
After listening to this, ludendorff realized how British the German policy makers were in abandoning Italy strategically ―― they would have to vomit a few liters of blood if their allies were not angry alive!

Near noon, a huge gray fleet of ships appeared in the sea about 10 nautical miles from Saipan (-). They lined up in the middle of the mighty military March, a particularly large sharp ship with a towering mast and a huge Italian navy flag fluttering in the wind!
"That’s Andrea Adolia and vittorio Vito!"
