I wish I remembered the details better, but it's been couple of careers ago or more. IIRC the lead carriers were Akagi and Kaga, moving east, so it may have been one of the Single Missions or a random pre-Midway encounter.

I had a similar situation on the last career in the SBS against Ozawa, but in very heavy weather. I closed on Zuikaku in a surface attack, paralleling until I could get into position, staying just far enough away that I wasn't detected until just before turn-in. Taiho loomed out of the gloom ahead just then and all bow tubes were open, so...

David McCampbell had a quiet June 19th in that reality.

Unrealistic, but fun the first time or two.
