That's correct, the message does come through but there are no units at all of the Japanese task force coming through the Strait. All I see is a few stray merchant ships but no sign of any Japanese heavy surface units coming through.

I tried to do a quick edit, before you posted, and as usual, I are a slow old man, and failed... I made a comment about the group itself on the previous page:

Edit: A little side-note to that. The group is built wide, at 4x across, plus the escorts. Just because the Mission Editor says they'll make it on time, does not mean that they will... The ships are spaced at 1,000 yard apart, to that's a minimum of 3,000 yards wide between the four columns, then add an escort either side makes that 5,000 yards at a minimum. Then the DD have to do their Knuckle turns to check their baffles, that another 1000 yards either side, so now we're 7,000 yards across... real close to three and a half nautical miles wide, making turns through the Masbate and Ticao passes and the Strait... not an easy feat to do... I've never investigated if they do make it through. If I get some time in a few weeks, I might make that trip just to see...

Actually, I just restarted from my previous patrol (giving up about 80,000 tons worth of shipping sunk...)


And lo and behold, I fast forward to June 15th sitting at the mouth of the Strait once again...and this time they showed up!


Just a bug I guess. Maybe they did get stuck.


Not sure if I should give up the 80,000 ton patrol just to sink some warships or not...
