+===============+

Welcome to my FAQ for Pacific Theater of Operations or PTO for short.  Since
this is a war and strategy game, there is no walkthrough per say.  Instead,
this FAQ is broken up into parts.  First the you will be given an explanation
of choices you have for playing the game.  These choices are either scenario or
campaign mode.  Next, you will be given all the possible commands you can give
with a brief description of what those commands are.  The next part is
dedicated to strategy.  This strategy will give you an idea on how to win your
strategic battles or campaigns.  The last part is the Appendix.  This will give
detailed information on many facets of the game.  Input is appreciated along
with constructive criticism.  If you wish to e-mail me thoughts on this FAQ,
better ways of doing things, other strategies, etc., feel free.  Make sure you
put PTO FAQ in the subject.  If you don't, I'm liable to discard the e-mail as
spam.

+===============+
|  5.  OVERVIEW |==============================================================
+===============+

Pacific Theater of Operations (PTO) takes place in the Pacific basin.  You will
be able to do a full scenario starting in 1941 and eight other scenarios
starting at their historic time periods.  After going through the preliminary
screen, you can then decide whether you will be the United States or Japan.
Once you have chosen sides, you can let the battles begin.

There are 50 territories that you can acquire to further supply your war
machine.  There are 270 different ships you can use to achieve your goals.  In
addition, as you develop your technology you can build bigger and better
weapons.  Of course, all of this stuff just doesn't happen.  You must also
develop your technological and industrial levels to be able to accommodate the
above.  In addition, you must have the resources in order to do the research
and build the things necessary to ensure victory.  Good luck and may victory be
yours.

+====================+
|  6.  THE SCENARIOS |=========================================================
+====================+

There are nine scenarios you can play in PTO.  The first scenario, Negotiations
Breakdown, can be played as if you are playing a campaign.

The other eight scenarios have specific objectives you must accomplish in order
to beat them.  These scenarios are described in more detail in Chapter 13.
Listed below are the scenarios from number two onward:

             +------------------+-------------------------------+
             | DATE OF BATTLE   | SCENARIO NAME                 |
             +------------------+-------------------------------+
             +------------------+-------------------------------+
             | NOVEMBER 1, 1941 | NEGOTIATIONS BREAKDOWN        |
             +------------------+-------------------------------+

             +------------------+-------------------------------+
             | OCTOBER 25, 1942 | BATTLE IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC   |
             +------------------+-------------------------------+
             | JUNE 19, 1944    | ASSAULT ON THE MARIANAS       |
             +------------------+-------------------------------+

             +------------------+-------------------------------+

In the above scenario modes, you will be given the naval force that fought in
that specific battle.  You must satisfy the conditions for winning to achieve
victory.  You will also be given the option of continuing on with your game
from the date of the scenario mode above.

+====================+
|  7.  ABBREVIATIONS |=========================================================
+====================+

In this game, there are a few abbreviations that are used.  Knowing these
abbreviations will go a long way in being able to quickly assess a fleet to
know its composition.

NOTE:  These are general characteristics of the types of ships involved.  As
       with all other things, there are exceptions to the rules.

DBB:  Dreadnaught Battleship - This is reserved for battleships along the line
      of the "superbattleships" Yamato and Musashi of the Japanese fleet.  They
      usually displace around 60,000 tons.  Their main gun batteries are 18.1
      inch guns and they contain a host of secondary and tertiary batteries.

 BB:  Battleship - Generally go from 25,000 to 40,000 tons.  Their maximum gun
      size for their primary batteries is 16 inches and they contain a host of
      secondary and tertiary batteries.

 CV:  Fleet Carrier -  Displaced anywhere from 17,000 tons and greater.
      Usually lightly armored, the fleet carrier's main offensive weapon is its
      airplanes.  Most fleet carriers could carry 80 or more planes.

CVL:  Light Carrier -  Smaller and more lightly armored then a fleet carrier.
      These were usually built on the hulls of CA's.  They usually carried up
      to 45 planes.

  C:  This covers both heavy and light cruisers in this game.  These are broken
      down (for informational purposes) below:

      CA:  Heavy Cruiser -  Generally from 7,500 to 10,000 tons.  These ships
           carried conventional or dual-purpose guns up to eight inches in
           diameter.  They had no secondary batteries but they could be
           outfitted for torpedo use.

      CL:  Light Cruiser -  Smaller and more lightly armed then the CA, CL's
           ranged anywhere from 3,000 to 7,500 tons.  These ships carried
           conventional or dual-purpose guns up to six inches in diameter.  In
           addition, they had no secondary batteries but they were outfitted
           for both torpedoes and depth charges.

 DD:  Destroyer - Also known as "Tin Cans".  Destroyers represent some of the
      smallest surface ships.  They displaced anywhere from 1,000 to 3,000
      tons.  Their main batteries usually would hold conventional or dual-
      purpose guns up to 5.5 inches in diameter.  They also had no secondary
      batteries but they were outfitted with torpedoes and depth charges.

SUB:  Submarines -  These vessels ranged anywhere from a few tons to almost
      2,000 tons in weight.  These ships carried torpedoes which could be fired
      from the bow, the after portion, or both.  In addition, these ships
      usually carried three or four inch deck guns.

|  8.  GETTING STARTED |=======================================================
+======================+

Once the game has loaded, you will be able to:

Start new game :  Start a new game.

Play saved game:  Play one of your two games that you may have saved.

 __________________
/ 8.1  Setting Up /____________________________________________________________
------------------

If you choose "Start new game", you will be presented with a screen with the
nine scenarios from Chapter 6.

After you choose a scenario, you will be asked as to how may players will be
participating.  If you choose "0", then you can watch the game play against
itself.

The next screen deals with game display and difficulty.  You will get the
following choices:

Wait time (1-10)             :  The smaller the number, the quicker messages
                                are displayed.

View battle animation (Y/N)? :  Allows you to watch all battles.

View HEX fleet battles (Y/N)?:  Allows you to watch all fleet battles.

View base HEX battles (Y/N)? :  Allows you to watch all base battles.

Select level of difficulty (0-10)?  This is a two-fold selection.  First, the
                                    higher the number, the more aggressive the
                                    computer player.  Second, it determines
                                    your starting funds.

The next screen(s) will show you the Allied and Japanese situations and give a
brief overview of each.

 __________________________
/ 8.2  Funds distribution /____________________________________________________
--------------------------

The difficulty level you chose will determine your starting funds.  Below is a
chart of difficulty versus starting funds:

LEGEND:  DIFF = DIFFICULTY LEVEL; FUNDS = STARTING FUNDS

                              +------+-------+
                              | DIFF | FUNDS |
                              +------+-------+
                              +------+-------+
                              |   0  | 1,000 |
                              +------+-------+
                              |   1  |   100 |
                              +------+-------+
                              |   2  |    90 |
                              +------+-------+
                              |   3  |    80 |
                              +------+-------+
                              |   4  |    70 |
                              +------+-------+
                              |   5  |    60 |
                              +------+-------+
                              |   6  |    50 |
                              +------+-------+
                              |   7  |    40 |
                              +------+-------+
                              |   8  |    30 |
                              +------+-------+
                              |   9  |    20 |
                              +------+-------+
                              |  10  |    10 |
                              +------+-------+

You will now be able to distribute funds amongst fuel, materials, industry,
and/or, technological advances.  Fuel, materials, and industry have
multipliers attached to them.  This means for every one unit of funds you
spend, you will get that multiplied by the multiplier and added to the previous
value for these areas.  The multipliers are:

Fuel:   One unit of funds x 10,000 = Added fuel

Materials and industry:  One unit of funds x 50 = Added Materials or industry

For example, if you expend five units of funds on fuel, you will get 50,000
units of fuel.  For the same five units of funds, you will get 250 units of
materials or industry.

All technology is on a one unit of funds per one unit of technology basis.

 _____________________________
/ 8.3  Rolling Up Commanders /_________________________________________________
-----------------------------

Each side starts with 20 commanders.  Each commander has four traits.  These
traits are:

Sea:  Ability to command non-carrier warships.
Air:  Ability to command carriers.
War:  Ability to be effective at the conference table.
Brv:  Ability of a commander to fight versus run away from a battle.

Values for these four areas will come up randomly.  There are 102 points spread
out amongst these traits so if you have a high value in one trait, then the
other three will be significantly lowered.  Try to balance the traits out.
Make some commanders strong in Sea while making others strong in Air just to
name a couple.

Once you have rolled up your commanders, you are ready to start.  Each side
will have to go to the conference table to determine objectives.  Once this is
accomplished, you are ready to start the game.

+=====================+
|  9.  TAKING CONTROL |========================================================
+=====================+

The controls for this game are pretty simple.  It is just a matter of being
able to use them for split-second decisions.

********************************* UNIT   IV ***********************************
                                *************

There are two types of screens in PTO:  Strategic and Tactical.  The Strategic
screen is where you make all of your decisions concerning strategy, research,
ship and plane building, and fleet movements to name a few.  The Tactical
Screen is where you actually conduct the battle, whether you are the attacker
or defender.  It is here that you make split-second decisions that could affect
the outcome of the battle.

+=======================+
| 10.  STRATEGIC SCREEN |======================================================
+=======================+

The Strategic Screen is the main screen you will constantly see when you gain
control each day.  It is from this screen that you can make all the different
strategic decisions.  The main screen is broken up into the eight main level
menus that let you control various aspects of the game.  The eight main levels
are further broken up into sub and sub-sub menus (if applicable).

NOTE:  Items in capital letters either represent icons or variable factors.

| 10.1.1   Main Menu Bar |-----------------------------------------------------
+------------------------+

Use the D-pad to highlight an option and use the "C" button to select it.  The
menu bar options for when the #1 Fleet is in port is discussed in more detail
in Chapter 10.3.

NOTE:  When the #1 Fleet is not in port, the last option on the menu bar
       changes from Conf to Mil.

+-------------------------+
| 10.1.2   DATE, TIME, WC |----------------------------------------------------
+-------------------------+

This refers to temporal data and weather conditions.  The date is expressed in
MMM. DD, YYYY format and time is in HH:MM 24 hour format.

Weather conditions refer to whether it is sunny, rainy, or foggy to name a few.
Weather conditions can have a direct impact on both surface and air battles.

+------------------------------------------------------------+
| 10.1.3  Fleet Picture, Japan or Allies, Fleet Number, M, F |-----------------
+------------------------------------------------------------+

The fleet picture is just a picture of whatever type of flagship is in port.

NOTE:  This picture will disappear when a fleet or fleets is/are resupplying.
       In place of the picture will be this message:  "Wait for resupplying:
       ## day(s)"

Japan or Allies refers to whether you are at the Japanese or Allied Strategic
Screen.

Fleet Number is lowest number fleet that is in port.  Only that fleet's
information is displayed on the main screen.  If there are other fleets in
port, explanations for accessing their information is covered in Chapter 10.2.

M and F refers to Morale and Fatigue.  These numbers range from 0 to 99.  A
high Morale number is a good thing while a high Fatigue number is bad.

+--------------------------------+
| 10.1.4   Flag, Type, Ship Name |---------------------------------------------
+--------------------------------+

Flag refers to which ship in the above Fleet Number is the flagship.

Type refers to what kind of ship the flagship is.  The 12 choices are:

DBB:  Super battleship     NC:  Nuclear Cruiser
NBB:  Nuclear Battleship    C:  Cruiser
 BB:  Battleship          NDD:  Nuclear Destroyer
NCV:  Nuclear Carrier      DD:  Destroyer
 CV:  Carrier            NSUB:  Nuclear Submarine
CVL:  Light Carrier       SUB:  Submarine

The name of the ship will be listed after the above information.

+----------------------+
| 10.1.5  Pos, FU, Spd |-------------------------------------------------------
+----------------------+

Pos indicate the position of a specific ship or fleet.  If said ship or fleet
is in port, then that port will be displayed.  If not, then the fleet's X,Y
coordinates will be given.  The game map is a grid 3839 x 1919 units in size.

FU indicates the icon for fuel.  Fuel is displayed in two ways:  The first way
is a percentage from 0 to 100% indicating how much fuel your fleet has left.
The second way is by how many gallons of fuel your fleet has.

Spd indicates the maximum speed that the fleet can attain.  A fleet's speed is
only as fast as the slowest ship.  This means if you have five, 37 knot
destroyers with transports and freighters attached, you cannot move faster then
20 knots (the top speeds of the freighters and transports).

+---------------------------+
| 10.1.6   F, B, S, M, T, C |--------------------------------------------------
+---------------------------+

These letters represent the icons for Fighters, Bombers, Scouts, Soldiers (in
units of battalions), Transports, and Freighters.  The numbers following these
icons represent the total numbers of these items in that particular fleet.

| 10.2.1   Base Name |---------------------------------------------------------
+--------------------+

Name of the base you are currently looking at.

+------------------------------+
| 10.2.2   Frnd, RE/RP, TR, FR |-----------------------------------------------
+------------------------------+

Frnd represents a base populations friendliness to either the Allies or Japan.
The higher the number, the more cooperative they will be.  If base friendliness
is 15% or lower, then guerilla attacks may occur.  These cause almost every-
thing on the base to be halved.

RE/RP is/are the icons representing whether this base is just for refueling or
whether it can both refuel and repair ships.

TR and FR are the number of transports and freighters at said base.  It is
important to keep an adequate number of transports and freighters at your base
so that you can restock large enough quantities of supplies and garrison your
base with adequate troops.  The numbers break down as follows:

Each freighter carries 7,000 gallons of fuel, 10 units of materials, and 10
rockets.

Each transport carries 10 battalions of troops.

NOTE:  Rockets that are in a place other then the Home Port cannot be loaded
       onto ships.  These are for base use only.

+------------------------------------------+
| 10.2.3   Iron, Pop, Endu, Oil, Ind, Arms |-----------------------------------
+------------------------------------------+

These headings represent a bases resources and defensive ability.  The
resources that a base produces will shipped to the Home Port monthly.  Base
characteristics are discussed in more detail in Chapter 18.

+------------------------------------+
| 10.2.4   F, B, S, J, R, L, E, M, P |-----------------------------------------

These letters represent the icons for Fighters, Bombers, Scouts, Jets, Rockets,
Long-range Bombers, Material, Soldiers, and Fuel

+-----------------------+
| 10.2.5   Enemy troops |------------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------+

This number represents the number of invading troops are currently attacking a
base if an invasion has occurred.

/ 10.3  Specific Strategic Menu Items /________________________________________
--------------------------------------

This Chapter will discuss each menu item in detail.  You may be referred to
other chapters for detailed discussions such as ship building and technological
advancements.  Also, you may be referred back to pictures of screens already
shown within this chapter or other chapters.

Some pages are in multiple screens.  This means you have to press the D pad
left or right to see these screens.  For the purposes of this FAQ, if you have
multiple screens, then a vertical row of "S"'s will indicate the screen breaks
so that all screens can be shown at once.

+--------------+
| 10.3.1  Port |---------------------------------------------------------------
+--------------+

These commands generally deal with moving your ships around.  In addition, you
can use the Port commands to lay mines.

/==================\
| 10.3.1.1  Supply |-----------------------------------------------------------
\==================/

This command allows you to supply your fleet(s) with fuel, planes, troops, etc.
Each ship has a maximum amount of supplies, equipment, troops, etc it can take
on.  When this command is chosen, you get the following screen:

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+

Use the D pad to move the cursor up and down.  Use the "A" button to go to the
next page.  Use the D pad and move it right to get the next screen of
information.  The P, M, and F represent the fuel, morale, and Fatigue icons.
Fuel will be expressed as a number from 0 to 100 to indicate the percentage
level that said fleet is refueled.

Page two information is just the location of the fleet either by base name or
by coordinates if away from a base.

When you select the fleet to be resupplied, you get this screen:

A blinking red cursor will appear over the number under one of the headings.
When you press "C", it will ask you to put in how much of that item you want.
Continue to do this for the other ships.  Use the "A" button to switch between
pages.  When you are finished, press the "B" button.  The box below indicates
what you have left in the national stock system to supply your fleets.  This is

As with the previous page, load up your troops transports.  Once you have
finished, press the "B" button and you will make it to the refueling screen.
Choose how much, from 0-100, you want to fill up the selected fleet.  Once you
have chosen how much fuel to use, hit the "B" button and choose "Y" to refuel
the fleet.  Below is a chart of how much fuel (in gallons) each ship requires
to be at 100%:

LEGEND:  TRAN = TRANSPORT; FREI = FREIGHTER

                  +------+-----------++------+-----------+
                  | SHIP | 100% FUEL || SHIP | 100% FUEL |

                  +------+-----------++------+-----------+
                  |  CVL |    4,500  ||  NBB |    6,000  |

                  |  DBB |   10,000  ||   NC |    4,500  |
                  +------+-----------++------+-----------+
                  |   BB |    6,000  ||  NDD |    1,000  |
                  +------+-----------++------+-----------+
                  |    C |    4,500  || NSUB |    1,000  |
                  +------+-----------++------+-----------+
                  |   DD |    1,000  || TRAN |    1,000  |
                  +------+-----------++------+-----------+
                  |  SUB |    1,000  || FREI |    6,000  |
                  +------+-----------++------+-----------+

If you have a fleet of 2 CV's, 1 BB, 1 C, 3 DD's, 4 TRAN, and 4 FREI, then the
amount of fuel you need to "top off" their tanks is figured as follows:

2   CV's x 6,000 = 12,000
1   BB   x 6,000 = 12,000
1    C   x 4,500 =  4,500
3   DD's x 1,000 =  3,000
4 TRAN's x 1,000 =  4,000
4 FREI's x 6,000 = 24,000
-------------------------

TOTAL FUEL       = 59,000

/=======================\
| 10.3.1.2  Shore Leave |------------------------------------------------------
\=======================/

This allows you to raise the morale of your troops by giving leave time.  You
can choose from 3 to 20 days to allow your men to rest.  For each day of rest,
you gain two morale points and lose two fatigue points.


/==============================\
| 10.3.1.3  Depart -> #1 fleet |-----------------------------------------------
\==============================/

More details regarding the #1 Fleet are found in Chapter 10.4.

/===========================\
| 10.3.1.4  Depart -> Other |--------------------------------------------------
\===========================/

When you have fueled up your ships, you can now send them out into the Pacific.
You will have four choices as to what to do with your fleet.  If your fleet is
headed to a base, remember that Japanese bases are in red while Allied are
blue:

Attack enemy base  :  Attacks an enemy base.  If you have troop transports,
                      allows you to land troops as well.

Attack fleet       :  Attack an enemy fleet.

Gather intelligence:  Allows you to locate the whereabouts of enemy fleets
                      and/or base information.

Port call          :  Allows you to dock in a friendly port.

/=====================\
| 10.3.1.5  Red alert |--------------------------------------------------------
\=====================/


If you need to recall a fleet that has been put on shore leave, then this is
the command you use.  Use Red alert only when you desperately need it since
utilizing it causes you to lose 20 Morale points and gain 18 Fatigue points.

/=====================\
| 10.3.1.6  Lay mines |--------------------------------------------------------
\=====================/

Allows you to lay one mine per day.  Mines require two units of material.

/========================\
| 10.3.1.7  Remove mines |-----------------------------------------------------
\========================/

Allows you to remove one of your mines per day.

/======================\
| 10.3.1.8  Show mines |-------------------------------------------------------
\======================/

Displays all mines laid at a base.

+--------------+
| 10.3.2  Rest |---------------------------------------------------------------
+--------------+

These commands generally deal with accelerating time.  Unless you have some-
thing going on, these commands allow you to skip days for events such as re-
supply, repair, or if you want to keep a fleet in port for some days.  If
things are quiet at the base, it might be better to put them on shore leave
then to just rest them.  Your choices are:

One Day :  Allows you to select one day to pass.

Resupply:  Allows you to rest until all resupply is done.

Repair  :  Allows you to rest until all repairs are done.

Set Days:  Allows you to set from 1 to 30 days to rest.

End     :  Cancels all rest orders at a base.  This does not have a detrimental
           effect on Morale or Fatigue.

+-------------+
| 10.3.3  Fix |----------------------------------------------------------------
+-------------+

This command either allows you to fix your ships, convert or modify ships, or
to build new ships.

/=========================\
| 10.3.3.1  Urgent repair |----------------------------------------------------
\=========================/

This command allows you to do a "quick fix" on a ship so that you can take it
in for more extensive repairs.  If a base has a repair facility, then you can
do an Urgent Repair on your ship(s).  Material is consumed from the base you
are at.  The exception is if the fleet is at the Home Port.  Material is then
consumed from the National Reserve.

In order to an urgent repair(s), you first identify the ships you want to fix.
You can only fix one attribute at a time.  These attributes are anti-ship,
anti-air, armor, or speed.  When you select one of these attributes, you can
increase it a maximum of five points.  You, though, will consume seven units of
materials and it can take from one to a few days to fix your ship.

You can repair as many ships as you want.  The only limiting factors will be
the amount of material available and whether the ship can be repaired any more.

For more extensive repairs, it is better to get the ship to Home Port for a
Total Repair.

/========================\
| 10.3.3.2  Total repair |-----------------------------------------------------
\========================/

Allows you to modify all attributes of a ship.  It takes one unit of material
to raise anti-ship, anti-air, armor, or speed by one.  It takes 15 units of
material to install search radar and another 15 to install gunnery radar.  You
cannot exceed the maximums as per Chapter 17 when you modify a warship.  You
must use this command when you want to install search and/or gunnery radar.  It
will usually take a month or two to do a total repair.

/==========================\
| 10.3.3.3  Modify warship |---------------------------------------------------
\==========================/

This command allows you to convert a warship to another type.  The conversions
allowed are:

CV -> BB; CVL -> C; DBB -> CV; BB -> CV; and C -> CVL

All modifications require adequate materials, fuel, and industry.  The time it
takes to do a modification will depend on your industry level.  The faster you
want it done, the more industry that is consumed.

More information regarding modifying warships is in Chapter 17.

/=========================\
| 10.3.3.4  Build warship |----------------------------------------------------
\=========================/

See Chapter 17 for more details on building warships.

/==========================\
| 10.3.3.5  Modify fighter |---------------------------------------------------
\==========================/

This allows you to modify your carriers so that they can use jets.  It takes
one unit of materials to modify the ship for one jet.  So a ship that has a
capacity of 80 planes would take 80 units of materials.

/=========================\
| 10.3.3.6  Modify rocket |----------------------------------------------------
\=========================/

Allows you to modify any ship that can carry planes.  It replaces the plane
launches with rocket launches.  Good for ships, other then carriers, so that
they can launch rockets.  You can even use it on carriers for the ultimate
rocket-launcher.

+-------------+
| 10.3.4  Ord |----------------------------------------------------------------
+-------------+

This command enables you to give commands to your fleets that are not at bases.
In addition, it also allows you to

/=================\
| 10.3.4.1  Fleet |------------------------------------------------------------
\=================/
 
This command allows you to command a fleet that is out to sea.  The only
stipulations on this command are:

1.  You cannot command the #1 Fleet regardless of location and
2.  You cannot command Fleets #2-#16 when they are at a base.

When you use this menu option, you will get a screen like that displayed in
Chapter 10.1.  This time, though, you will have a different menu bar across the
top.  The choices are:

Place:  Shows you where the fleet is located on the big map.

Rept:   For Fleets #2-#16, this will show where a contact was made with
        coordinates.  For the #1 Fleet, you can also call up the map to show
        exact location, verify the report, or mark said point to determine a
        pattern.
Ships:  Shows data for each ship in a fleet.

Trans:  Shows data for transports (if any) that are with the fleet.

Duty:  Allows you to give orders as per Chapter 10.3.1.4.

Mark:  Allows you to put a mark on the big map.

/================\
| 10.3.4.2  Base |-------------------------------------------------------------
\================/

This command allows you to supply a base, get information, or get a location.
When selected, the following screen comes up for quick information:

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+

Selecting the base will give you the base information screen from Chapter 10.2.
Across the top will be the following commands:

Place :  Shows you the location of the base on the big map.

Rept  :  Shows you any reports of enemy fleet activity as per Chapter 10.3.4.1.

Supply:  Allows you to supply your base.  Keep in mind that each base is a
         different distance from the Home Port.  The farther away it is, the
         longer you have to wait before you can resupply them again.

Mark  :  Allows you to mark a location on the big map.

/===================\
| 10.3.4.3  Arrange |----------------------------------------------------------
\===================/

This command allows you to do the following (NOTE:  The last three must be done
at a Home Port):

Join     :  Allows you to exchange ships between two fleets or allows you to
            merge two fleets together.

Split    :  Allows you to split a fleet into multiple fleets.  You must have
            empty fleets in order to execute this command.

New      :  Only useable at your Home Port.  Allows you to create a new fleet
            from your ship reserve.  You must have empty fleets in order to
            execute this command.

Discharge:  Only useable at your Home Port.  Allows you to return ships to your
            ship reserve.  You must use this command if you want to a Total
            Repair or Modify Warship command on a ship that's in a fleet.

Transport:  Only useable at your Home Port.  Allows you to attach transports
            and/or freighters to an existing fleet.

/===================\
| 10.3.4.4  Scuttle |----------------------------------------------------------
\===================/

This allows you to basically destroy one of your own ships.  This is a very
useful command when new technology is out but you can't build new ships due to
having the maximum allowed.  It also is useful when a ship is so damaged that
it is combat unworthy.

Ships must be part of a fleet before you can scuttle them and you cannot
scuttle the last ship in a fleet.  Unfortunately, scuttling ships counts toward
your Friendly ships destroyed total.

+--------------+
| 10.3.5  Info |---------------------------------------------------------------
+--------------+

This option not only allows you to gather information, but also to perform
clandestine operations.

Radio ban     :  Cuts all radio traffic.  Helps to prevent enemy units from
                 finding you, but it also isolates you from the rest of your
                 fleets.  If the #1 Fleet is attacked during a radio ban, it
                 will automatically fight (you have no control over it).

Enemy info    :  High intelligence will allow you to gain insight on the enemies
                 plans.

Special forces:  Allows you to not only gather intelligence, but also to cause
                 hate and discontent in the form of destroying planes, base
                 defenses, and fuel.  You can also agitate the people by de-
                 creasing their friendliness toward their "home" country.

Results       :  Shows how many ships each side has and how many have been sunk
                 since the last time the #1 Fleet returned to port.

Report        :  Allows you to decide which fleets don't have to report enemy
                 submarine activity.

Show fleet    :  Allows you to display your fleets so that you know where they
                 are.

+--------------+
| 10.3.6  Data |---------------------------------------------------------------
+--------------+

This is nation specific information.  It gives you all the information
regarding your status and what your country has in the way of resources to back
your war effort.

The letters E, P, F, B, S, J, R, L, M, T, and C represent the icons for
Material, Fuel, Fighters, Bombers, Scouts, Jets, Rockets, Long-range Bombers,
Soldiers, Transports, and Freighters

Every month, you will get a report as to how much stuff made it into your
country.  This stuff goes into the National Reserve.  Material, Fuel, Budget,
and Soldiers are determined as follows:

Material shipped back monthly = # of Iron on bases * 20

Fuel shipped back monthly = # of Oil on bases * 300

Money made for Japan = (3 * # of Ind on bases) + (10 * Morale)

Money made for Allies = (3 * # of Ind on bases) + (25 * Morale)

Soldiers Recruited = 10 + (Morale * 1/3 (all fractions rounded down))

Other items such as planes, transports, etc. you must produce through the Conf
menu option.

You can determine from these screens whether the above country is for or
against you, what technologies they possess, and what their technological
levels are.  If a country is allied with you, you can exchange technologies,
equipment, etc.

Losing an allied country can sometimes be extremely devastating.  For Japan,
they lose a lot of Intelligence plus technological gains.  The Allies can lose
allied fleets such as England's or Australia's.  This is why it is good to keep
friendly with all countries.

/=================\
| 10.3.6.4  Ships |------------------------------------------------------------
\=================/

A quick display to show what ships are still around and which ships were sunk
for both the Allies and Japan.  The running total is only kept until the #1
Fleet heads out and goes back into the Home Port again.

/================\
| 10.3.6.5  Base |-------------------------------------------------------------
\================/

This gives you the basic base information for all 50 bases.

/======================\
| 10.3.6.6  Key battle |-------------------------------------------------------
\======================/

Shows you what your objectives are from the conference.

/========================\
| 10.3.6.7  Victory Goal |-----------------------------------------------------
\========================/

Repeats what your overall victory goal is from when you started the scenario.

+--------------+
| 10.3.7  Conf |---------------------------------------------------------------
+--------------+

This is where you can build up your infrastructure, determine base policy, and
set war goals to name a few.  This option is only available when the #1 Fleet
is at the Home Port.  The rest of the generals, though, may reject requests for
things involving the spending of money or the deployment of Special Forces.  An
officer with high War ability can help out greatly.

/=====================\
| 10.3.7.1  Set goals |--------------------------------------------------------
\=====================/

Allows you to either set goals or allow the other members set goals for you.
These goals either involve attacking an enemy base or defending a friendly
base.

/========================\
| 10.3.7.2  Produce arms |-----------------------------------------------------
\========================/

Allows you to produce all the materials required for waging war.  You must have
enough money in your budget to produce these items.  Items produced go into the
national reserve.

/====================\
| 10.3.7.3  Internal |---------------------------------------------------------
\====================/

This command allows you to raise one of two things:

Industry  :  Allows you to raise your industry one point/one unit of money.

Propaganda:  Allows you to raise national morale one point/50 units of money.

/=====================\
| 10.3.7.4  Diplomacy |--------------------------------------------------------
\=====================/

Allows you to set up relations with, or repair relations with another country.

/=======================\
| 10.3.7.5  Base policy |------------------------------------------------------
\=======================/

This command allows you to dictate Military Policy to most any base you
possess.  The following bases cannot be controlled this way:

Allied:  Hawaii, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Attu

Japan :  Tokyo, Yokosuka, Kure, Sasebo

/=======================\
| 10.3.7.6  Raise skill |------------------------------------------------------
\=======================/

Allows you to invest your budget to raise your skill in the following areas:
Intelligence, Artillery, Steel, Engines, Planes, or Electronics.  For every 50
units of money, you can raise a skill level by one point.

/==========================\
| 10.3.7.7  Special forces |---------------------------------------------------
\==========================/

Allows you to deploy Special Forces to enemy bases.

+-------------+
| 10.3.8  Mil |----------------------------------------------------------------
+-------------+

The same as Chapter 10.3.7.4 except you dictate Military Policy to the base you
currently have a fleet at.  If the #1 Fleet is not at Home Port, you can only
dictate policy to that individual base.

 ___________________________
/ 10.4  #1 Fleet Specifics /___________________________________________________
---------------------------

The #1 Fleet is the only fleet you fully control.  Once you deploy it, you can
control all matters involving battle, resupply, etc.  Of course, with this much
importance attached to the #1 Fleet, it also determines a couple of things:

-  If you ever lose the #1 Fleet, your game will end.  This means that you need
   to make sure it is kept in good repair and you don't put it into some
   impossible situation.

-  Once out of port, you have no control on the direction of the war since you
   will not be able to participate in any conferences.  This means get all you
   business taken care of before you deploy.

-  The #1 Fleet determines the National Morale.  If the #1 Fleet is successful,
   then morale goes up, if not, morale goes down.  If morale goes too low or
   you don't accomplish any goals, you can be replaced which will end your
   game.

You get the following screen when you sortie out the #1 Fleet:

NOTE:  Menu items Ord, Info, and Data have already been discussed in Chapter
       10.3.

+--------------+
| 10.4.1  Tact |---------------------------------------------------------------
+--------------+

With the #1 Fleet, you are allowed to make command decisions six times a day
(every four hours).  This means you can keep the fleet moving or order multiple
airstrikes to name a few things that can be done over this period of time.

/================\
| 10.4.1.1  Move |-------------------------------------------------------------
\================/

Allows you to move the #1 Fleet anywhere within the small window.  You get to
determine fleet speed and destination.  Keep in mind the faster you move, the
more fuel that gets burned.  Conversely, the faster you move, the quicker you
make it to your destination.

After you determine where you are going, the game will display the time it will
take to get to said destination.

You can continue the above pattern until you get to your destination.

/======================\
| 10.4.1.2  Air attack |-------------------------------------------------------
\======================/

This allows you to select what carriers you will launch planes from.  It also
gives you the option of loading planes with torpedoes.  If you are going after
ships, then this is the route to go, if not, bombs are a better and more
versatile choice.  Time to prepare is determined by the number of planes you
will use for the strike and how you will be arming them.

NOTE:  Planes chosen for an air attack cannot be used as cover planes for the
       fleet.

/======================\
| 10.4.1.3  Gun attack |-------------------------------------------------------
\======================/

Allows you to choose whether you want to bombard an enemy base or take on an
enemy fleet.

/===================\
| 10.4.1.4  Landing |----------------------------------------------------------
\===================/

Gets your troop transports ready to unload their troops upon enemy bases.  Time
taken is determined by how many transports you will be unloading.

/=========================\
| 10.4.1.5  Rocket attack |----------------------------------------------------
\=========================/

Allows you to launch rockets at an enemy base.  Once used, you must return to
your Home Port to replenish your rockets.

+--------------+
| 10.4.2  Rest |---------------------------------------------------------------
+--------------+

This command allows you to rest the fleet for four hours, until you arrive at
a destination, or for 24 hours.

+-------------+
| 10.4.3  Int |----------------------------------------------------------------
+-------------+

This command will allow you to:

Scout :  Launch a scout from one of your ships to cover one of nine grids in an
         area.

Escort:  Launch fighters to form a "protective" umbrella over the fleet.

Report:  Shows reports on enemy fleets.

+--------------+
| 10.4.4  Misc |---------------------------------------------------------------
+--------------+

The commands from Misc are just that, anything not covered by the other menu
items.  These items are:

Set up  :  Allows you to configure your fleet in a Anti-air Attack,
           Bombardment, Chase, or Torpedo formation.  Each has its advantages
           and disadvantages.

Training:  Allows you to train your crews in seamanship or aircraft.  Either
           the Ship or Fly stats will go up and it takes two days to train.
           This is in addition to fuel being used and Fatigue going up.

Banquet:  A nice way to reward your fleet.  It raises Morale by five and
          decreases Fatigue by 11.  You get ten of these between resupplies.

Port   :  If you are at a port, you can use this command to tie up to the
          base's dock.

+======================+
| 11.  TACTICAL SCREEN |=======================================================
+======================+

This is where you make your battle decisions.  You will get this screen when-
ever you attack an enemies fleet or base or when an enemy attacks your fleet.

Once battle is initiated, it will go on for a number of rounds.  This number is
determined by how close a fleet is to another fleet or base.  The maximum
number of rounds is 12 for each side.

 _____________________________

| 11.1.1  MAIN BATTLE SCREEN |-------------------------------------------------
+----------------------------+

This displays all ships, planes, and/or bases participating in a battle.  Each
space is a hex so one could surround an enemy unit with six of their own.  Two
units cannot occupy the same hex.  The exception to this rule are submarines.

+-----------------------+
| 11.1.2  TU, SHIP NAME |------------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------+

TU represents the number of turns left for battle and the SHIP NAME is self-
explanatory.

+-------------------------+
| 11.1.3  Combat Menu Bar |----------------------------------------------------
+-------------------------+

Mov:  Allows you to move your unit (if possible).

Att:  Allows you to attack an enemy unit.  Pressing the "A" button gives you
      options of what to attack with (i.e. guns, torpedoes, depth charges,
      etc.).

Inf:  Gives you information on the specific unit.

Lnd:  Allows you to prepare transports to land troops.

Ext:  Extinguish a fire on a ship.  If you fail, then the fire continues to
      blaze and cause damage.

Snr:  Allows any ship, so equipped, to detect enemy submarines.

Fle:  Allows you to withdraw ships from a battle.  Ships cannot be withdrawn
      if:  An enemy ship is adjacent to the one that is trying to escape, enemy
      planes are anywhere in the battle area, or if there are submarines in the
      battle area.

Del:  Allows you to delegate command to an individual ship or the fleet.  Once
      command is delegated, you cannot regain control until the end of the
      battle.

You will be able to play in nine selected battles.  The first scenario would
qualify as a campaign.

+=========================+
| 12.  GENERAL STRATEGIES |====================================================
+=========================+

These are general strategies to make your journey through the different areas
more enjoyable (or tolerable at least).  These also can be used when you don't
want to look at the specific strategies and want to solve things on your own.
Again, these are not all-encompassing and I know there are other general
strategies to use.  These are, though, the best I have found to work for me.

These are a list of general strategies for all the campaigns that I have found
to be effective.  I know that there are many more different strategies out
there.  Your input on this would be greatly appreciated and your reward would
be to see it added to this guide and credited appropriately.  These are not in
any particular order of importance but some or all may apply to whatever
campaign you are engaged in.

 ________________________________
/ 12. 1  Saving is a Good Thing /_______________________________________________
--------------------------------

This really goes without saying.  Every time you have a significant
accomplishment or plan to go into uncharted territory, it's a good idea to save
your game.  This also applies to designing new weapons or exploring new areas of
research.  Again, if you feel really brave, I recommend saving before you do
something you may regret later.

 _____________________________________________________
/ 12. 2  Resources Aren't Just for Breakfast Anymore /__________________________
-----------------------------------------------------

You can have the best plan but without the resources to carry it out, that's
all it will be:  A plan.  You need (better read require) resources to keep your
"war machine" going.  You need money to buy those new toys or to modify the
toys you already have.  You need oil to move your fleet.  You need iron for the
material so you can build ships.  In addition, you will also need resources if
you want to trade technologies, equipment, and/or industries with other
allied countries.

 ____________________________________
/ 12. 3  Getting From There to Here /___________________________________________
------------------------------------

Transports are the lifeline from far away territories to your home territory.
It's all well and good to have a load of resources being produced weekly.
Those resources, though, are worthless unless you can get them to your home
port and utilize them.  The opposite is also true.  If you want to cripple the
enemy, cut off their lifeline to their remote resources.  The Americans proved
this in World War 2 by basically isolating Japan from the resources of
conquered territory.

 ________________________________
/ 12. 4  The Technological Edge /_______________________________________________
--------------------------------

It's all well and good to have the biggest ships or the sleekest planes if the
other side has the same thing.  Of course, they want to win so technology
becomes a major factor.  With technological advances, you can use radar to
control your ship's gunfire, design new engines for your ships, create jet
aircraft, improve anti-submarine methods, etc.  The possibilities are endless.
Of course, it takes money and time to develop these technologies so it is a
good idea for one to decide which way they want to go on the technological
path.  Chapter 16 explains in much more detail the technologies and any
prerequisite technologies that may be required.

 ________________________________________
/ 12. 5  My Gun is Bigger Then Your Gun /_______________________________________
----------------------------------------

In the early part of the century, a countries power was based on dreadnoughts
and battleships.  This translated to the size of guns they carried.  Of course,
the thinking shifted with the advent of carriers.  Still, with the right mix of
carriers and other warships, you can create a formidable fleet.  Those big guns
can do quite a number on the airfields while carrier aircraft can soften up or
finish the job.  Again, it is a matter of balance since the Japanese had ships
that possessed the largest guns during the war but those ships never saw any
real action.

 _________________________________
/ 12. 6  Haze Gray and Under Way /______________________________________________
---------------------------------

Fleet balance can make the difference between success and failure.  Go into a
territory without any air cover and be prepared to take a pounding from the
airfields.  Go in without any ships that have anti-submarine capabilities and
you will quickly find that even the most powerful fleet can fall prey to
submarines.

In addition to fleet balance, make sure you deploy your fleets in locations
that makes them readily accessible.  Sometimes you will want to mount offensive
or defensive operations at a moments notice.  If your fleet is scattered all
over the place, you may lose a valuable opportunity to inflict some serious
damage on the enemy.

 ______________________________________
/ 12. 7  Beans, Bullets, and Bandages /________________________________________
--------------------------------------

A stable supply line is a must in order to not only keep the fleet going, but
also your bases.  You should make sure each of your bases is well equipped with
fuel, materials, troops, and planes in order to fend off any attacks the enemy
might make.  Each base has a certain time limit as to when it can be supplied
again.  The time to find this information out is not when a base is under
attack and the next supply run won't happen for another 30 days.  By that time,
you may lose the base.  In addition, keep track of other incidents at your
bases that may cause problems in the future.  One big incident may be that
enemy special forces units are operating to undo what you are trying to keep
up.  Again, it is better to be proactive then reactive.

NOTE:  You can only load planes and rockets from the home base.  The only
       things you can do at other bases are emergency repairs and refuel.

 ______________________________
/ 12. 8  Run Silent, Run Deep /_________________________________________________
------------------------------

Submarines, in my opinion, can be one of your greatest offensive and defensive
tools.  They can be used for recon work, taking on enemy fleets, and sinking
transports.  When you look at the exchange, submarines can be built cheaply
both in terms of money and material.  Sinking major enemy warships such as
carriers and battleships can be well worth the exchange of losing a few 
submarines.  In addition to warships, you can isolate enemy territories by
sinking their transports and preventing them from delivering their goods to
the home base.

Of course, if you find yourself on the receiving end of things, you will have
to act quickly to prevent enemy submarines from taking the upper hand.  This
means you will probably have to form "hunter-killer" groups of CL's and DD's to
take out those pesky enemy subs.  This is especially true if they are busy
sinking your transports.

 ___________________________
/ 12. 9  Pick your Battles /___________________________________________________
---------------------------

You do not have to fight everything that comes along.  Keep in mind that you
can only have 16 fleets at one time in the game.  This
means you will have to plan a battle strategy that maximizes the use of your
resources without making you so weak that the enemy can take advantage of you.
In addition, build your fleets for the threats they may encounter.  If you are
going to tangle with heavy enemy warships, you may want to build a fleet that
is biased toward heavy warships.  This is not to say that you can't use other
fleets to weaken the enemy, however, you don't want to lose a lot of ships
needlessly since it does take money, time, and other resources to rebuild your
fleet.  Your goal is to cripple the enemy to such a degree as to prevent them
from being able to wage war.

 ___________________________
/ 12.10 Divide and Conquer /___________________________________________________
---------------------------

When faced with a superior fleet, sometimes the best strategy is to either
break them up into more manageable pieces or to isolate them.  Granted, you
will take a beating for the first couple of battles, but if you have the enemy
fleet divided, you can still do more damage over the long run.  This is
especially true if you isolate the enemy fleet and surround them to prevent
them from being reinforced or their ability to retreat to friendly waters.
Make sure, though, you have the strength to conduct such an operation and don't
let yourself become the hunted instead of the hunter.

To add to this, if you isolate enemy territories, you also get the added
benefit of denying them the ability to gain a lot of that territory's
resources.  Of course, you could also be put into that position.  If you see
unclaimed resources, look around on the map to see where your isolated
territory is.

 ____________________________
/ 12.11  Run Away, Run Away /___________________________________________________
----------------------------

When you face a superior foe or your fleet is too damaged to sustain an
offensive/defensive posture, your next best bet is to run away.  There is no
shame in saving your "skin" until you have more of an advantage.  The only time
you cannot run away, usually,  is when the territory you are defending is
totally surrounded by the enemy.  You don't get penalized for running away.

 ____________________________________
/ 12.12  Keeping Up With the Jones' /___________________________________________
------------------------------------

This kind of goes hand-in-hand with Chapter 12.4.  You may find yourself at the
receiving end of a technologically superior opponent.  Your only choices are to
keep them subdued enough to let your own technology catch up or take them
totally out of the game as quickly as possible.  In addition, allies can prove
to be very useful in helping your technology along.  Take this into account
when you are busy calculating resources since giving an ally some of these
resources will pay handsome dividends later on.

 __________________________________
/ 12.13  Know What Your Goals Are /____________________________________________
----------------------------------

Strategy meetings occur at different times.  You can either make a proposal or
have the other conferees make one.  The bottom line is that you need to do your
best to achieve the goals that have been set.  This doesn't mean, though, that
you need to get reckless.  Plus, time is on your side to ensure that you are
victorious.

 ______________________________
/ 12.14  Know the Big Picture /________________________________________________
------------------------------

Too many times, one will get tunnel vision and only concentrate on one little
aspect of the battlefield.  This can result in significant problems since you
may be winning one particular battle while the enemy is busy overrunning you
on all other parts of the battlefield.  This means you need to be aware of
everything that is going on at all times.  Spies are one of the best methods to
get continuous data from an enemy territory.  Also, be aware of targets of
opportunity.  These kinds of targets may present themselves briefly and give
you a very small window of opportunity to take advantage of them.  Again, don't
only look at where you are positioned at, but also look at where everybody else
is at.  If you have allies, try to use them to further your own goals.

 ___________________________
/ 12.15  Damage and Repair /___________________________________________________
---------------------------

After you have fought a battle (whether you won or lost) you need to take
stock of what damage you have taken.  On the Tactical Screen, you will see
damage represented a couple of ways.  During the tactical battle, the ship
icon will flash.  During the after-action report, different colors will
indicate the degree of damage a ship has sustained.  If you have any ships that
are damaged, they you will need to take them into a Base to get repaired.  The
base level is indicative of how long it will take to repair a ship.  So a Level
eight Base will repair a ship much quicker then a Level two Base.

 _________________
/ 12.16 Airpower /_____________________________________________________________
-----------------

Along with seapower, airpower plays a crucial role in this game.  Since the
carrier became the "queen of the seas", countries have pushed hard to make
air-superior carrier aircraft.  It also has been proven that ships without air
cover will not last long in a hostile environment that does have airpower.
This means that you must ensure that your fleet has an "umbrella" of air cover
when you enter hostile waters.  This way you can deal with enemy threats not
only from the sea, but also from their bases.    Airpower is very versatile in
that you can attack both land and sea targets.  In addition, airpower can be
used to "siphon" off enemy airpower further creating a dominant position for
yourself.

 ________________________
/ 12.17  Special Forces /______________________________________________________
------------------------

Special forces play a vital role in PTO.  With special forces, you can spy,
cause insurrections, or sabotage enemy bases to name a few things.  Sometimes
the worst mistake anyone can make is to blindly attack an enemy base without
first finding out what it has.  Special forces serve as a valuable tool to do
that and much more.  Why waste troops needlessly when you can cripple the
enemies ability to fight by destroying fuel supplies, armaments, and even
planes.  In addition, you can get the base's friendliness down to such a point
as to cause the "natives" to launch guerilla strikes, which can further reduce
a base's effectiveness thus making it easier for you to "walk" in.

 ______________________________________________________
/ 12.18  No good plan survives contact with the enemy /
------------------------------------------------------

This is the rule you should have in mind when making your plans to seize
objectives and tangle with enemy units.  If you go too much by the plan instead
of improvising for when unexpected situations arise, you will have a good
chance at losing the battle or that specific goal.  Always expect the
unexpected and have ready another plan in case your first fails.

+==========================+
| 13.  SCENARIO STRATEGIES |===================================================
+==========================+

As mentioned in the introduction, you get the chance to fight in eight selected
naval battles from World War Two.  Your goal is to fulfill the objective to win
that particular battle.  These battles represent some of the key battles that
were turning points in World War Two.

Also, territories are what the countries had during a given period of time.
For example, the Japanese had much of the Pacific Basin from 1942-1944 and that
is reflected on the map and also territories owned.

The first scenario, Negotiations Breakdown, plays out like a campaign.  There-
fore, use the General Strategies to play this one.  The other scenarios give
you a much more limited set of objectives such as sinking a number of specific
ships or occupying specific bases.  If you want to play the game in a campaign
mode, I suggest playing the first scenario.

For all scenarios, use the General Strategies in Chapter 12 plus the specific
strategies in this chapter to assist you in achieving total victory.  Once you
have either succeeded or failed to fulfill the objectives, you will be given
the choice of continuing onward with the game in scenario one.

The Scenarios will be set up like this:

 ________________
/ Scenario Name /
----------------

Japanese Objective     :  What is the overall objective to win the scenario?
United States Objective:  As above.

Japanese Fleets    :  What ships fleets are currently operating and what ships
                      are in each fleet.  In addition, it also lists what ships
                      are in reserve (if any).

United States Fleets:  As above

Japanese Commanders     :  How many commanders you get when you start this
                           scenario.

United States Commanders:  As above

Negotiations have broken down and now the United States and Japan are on a
collision course for war.

+-----------------------------+
| 13.1.1  Japanese Strategies |------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------+

-  Although you have the advantage in ships and troops, your industrial base
   and oil reserves are seriously lacking.

-  Your first order of business is to attack south and gain the oil producing
   bases.  In addition, gaining the iron producing bases will give you what you
   need to produce materials.

-  After you secure the southern areas, draw out the American fleet(s).
   Although they will have ships constantly coming out of the shipyards, if you
   can keep knocking these ships back, you should have a good shot of subduing
   the Allied fleets.

-  Keep in mind that you have most of your ships now and there are very few in
   new construction.  This means you will have to use your ships wisely.

+-----------------------------+
| 13.1.2  American Strategies |------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------+

-  You start at a disadvantageous position in regard to ships and troops.
   Fortunately, you have the oil and iron resources for the fleet that will be
   arriving.

-  Make defending bases with oil and iron resources your number one priority.
   Since you will be lacking in ships, produce a lot of planes to ship to these
   bases for defense.  In addition, send a lot of troops.

-  You will need to hold out on a "shoestring" until mid to late 1943.  This is
   when new construction will be constantly supplying the fleet with ships.  In
   the meantime, be conservative with your fleets and only attack when you have
   an advantage.

-  Don't be concerned with losing a few bases at the beginning since you will
   soon be able to regain them when your industrial resources are able to
   produce a fleet with a significant striking power.

+------------------------------+
| 13.1.3  What Really Happened |-----------------------------------------------
+------------------------------+

As the United States and its allies dug their heels in, the Japanese felt they
had no other recourse but go to war.  Plans were made for not only the attack
on Pearl Harbor, but also the entire southern region which was rich with oil
and other raw materials.  The Japanese felt that if they could make a huge
enough impact, they could basically force a negotiated peace out of the United
States.

The Japanese launch a "surprise" raid on Pearl Harbor.

+-----------------------------+
| 13.2.1  Japanese Strategies |------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------+

-  You should be able to launch two to three airstrikes during the game.
   Either at Hawaii or at any American carriers that may be milling about.

-  Break radio silence to order your other fleets to quit attacking and use
   them instead for recon work to locate the American carrier fleets.  Get your
   destroyers away also.

-  Keep in mind that although the American carriers don't pose much of a
   threat, the land based air units on Hawaii do so keep vigilant.

-  If you weaken the American fleet enough, you can go in to finish them off at
   night.  Just be sure to get away before daybreak.  Also, keep your first
   fleet moving around.

+-----------------------------+
| 13.2.2  American Strategies |------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------+

-  The Japanese have superior number of carriers and aircraft.  Don't try to
   fight it out with them with your carriers or you will lose.  Instead,
   retreat your carriers "behind" Hawaii and use your scouts.

-  Hopefully, once you have identified the Japanese main fleet, the airpower on
   Hawaii will go in for an attack.  You should, though, be able to handle the
   other Japanese fleets that are around Hawaii.

-  If night presents an opportunity, sortie your number one fleet and attempt
   to do a surface battle with the Japanese number one fleet.  If planned
   right, you can inflict some heavy damage on them.

+------------------------------+
| 13.2.3  What Really Happened |-----------------------------------------------
+------------------------------+

Getting the idea from the British raid on Taranto, Admiral Yamamoto felt that
he could do the same against Pearl Harbor.  His plan was to catch the entire
American fleet "flatfooted".  Unfortunately, when the raid commenced, the
American carriers were not in port.  In addition, he failed to destroy the fuel
farms and repair facilities.  These errors would dearly cost him later on.  The
Japanese only lost five midget submarines and a handful of planes in this
action while the American had 5 BB's sunk and another 5 BB's, 2 CL's, and
3 DD's damaged.  All but two of the BB's were raised from the mud at Pearl
Harbor, refurbished, and returned to the fleet.  So in essence, the raid only
served to drag American into the war without doing any real damage.

The first major sea battle between the United States and Japan.  It was also
the first all carrier battle.

+-----------------------------+
| 13.3.1  Japanese Strategies |------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------+

-  Use your submarines and scout planes to locate the American fleet.  Once
   located, launch airstrikes at their carriers.

-  Be aware that the Americans will also be launching scouts and using sub-
   marines for recon.  This means you will need to keep moving around to avoid
   getting caught "flatfooted".

-  During daylight hours, make sure you keep an escort over your fleet to
   prevent any nasty surprises.  You can also lure the American fleet up around
   Truk, Rabaul, and Lae and use the planes there to also conduct airstrikes.

-  If you weaken the American fleet enough, you can go in to finish them off at
   night.  Just be sure to get away before daybreak.

+-----------------------------+
| 13.3.2  American Strategies |------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------+

-  Use your submarines and scout planes to locate the American fleet.  Once
   located, launch airstrikes at their carriers.

-  Be aware that the Japanese will also be launching scouts and using sub-
   marines for recon.  This means you will need to keep moving around to avoid
   getting caught "flatfooted".

-  During daylight hours, make sure you keep an escort over your fleet to
   prevent any nasty surprises.  You can also lure the Japanese fleet around
   Guadalcanal use the planes there to also conduct airstrikes.

-  If you manage to weaken the Japanese fleet, you may be able to go in for a
   night action to take out any stragglers.

+------------------------------+
| 13.3.3  What Really Happened |-----------------------------------------------
+------------------------------+

The first naval battle fought "beyond the horizon".  This meant that neither
fleet saw each other during the entire engagement and only carrier power was
used to do battle.  The Japanese planned to invade Port Moresby to isolate
Australia.  The Americans responded by sending in two carrier task forces.  In
the ensuing battle, 1 CL was sunk and 1 CV was badly damaged.  In addition,
they lost a significant amount of planes which effectively "crippled" another
carrier.  This would have far reaching effects for the battle of Midway later
on.  The Americans lost a CV and a DD while sustaining damage to a CV and DD.
Although it wasn't a tactical victory, the Americans did win a strategic
victory by turning the Japanese away from their plans.

Japanese Commanders     :  20
United States Commanders:  18

The Japanese are attempting to take Midway from the Americans and force a
decisive battle.

+-----------------------------+
| 13.4.1  Japanese Strategies |------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------+

-  Scout out for the American carriers.  Use your air superiority to go after
   the carriers.  You should be able to launch a couple of strikes.

-  Make sure you use escort to keep from being "jumped" by American carrier
   planes in addition to anything Midway sends after your fleet.

-  Also knock out the Midway airfield to keep from being harassed by those
   planes.

-  Continue until you destroy the American fleets or all of their CV's.

+-----------------------------+
| 13.4.2  American Strategies |------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------+

-  This will be a slugging match between you and the enemy fleet.  If you play
   it smart, you can inflict maximum damage to them while minimizing the damage
   to yourself.

-  Scout out the area and launch your strikes as soon as they make contact.
   You can be sure that the enemy is doing the same thing.  Concentrate your
   airstrikes on one enemy fleet at a time to ensure you severely cripple it.

-  Use air strength on Midway to help even the odds a bit.  Although the
   Japanese may have more carriers, you can equalize this by using planes from
   the "unsinkable" carrier at Midway.

-  When night falls, detach your cruisers and destroyers to pick up any
   carriers that may straggle.  Be careful, though, of the Japanese battleships.

-  Continue the above pattern until you destroy the enemy fleets or if you
   clean out their carriers.

+------------------------------+
| 13.4.3  What Really Happened |-----------------------------------------------
+------------------------------+

The major turning point in the Pacific.  American codebreakers learned of the
Japanese plan to invade Midway and to draw the U.S. fleet out for a final show-
down.  To accomplish this, Japan sent out a force of 4 CV's, 2 BB's, 2 CA's,
1 CL, and 12 DD's.  To counter this, the Americans sent out 3 CV's, 7 CA's,
1 CL, and 17 DD's.  The Americans got the jump on the Japanese and sank 3 CV's
at practically the same time.  The fourth CV was sunk later that day.  The
Americans lost a CV and DD to a Japanese submarine.  In addition, the Japanese
also lost a CA and the other one was severely damaged.

Japanese Commanders     :  19
United States Commanders:  18

The Japanese are attempting to prevent the Americans from reinforcing
Guadalcanal.

+-----------------------------+
| 13.5.1  Japanese Strategies |------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------+


-  Send out scouts as soon as day breaks.  This may give you the advantage of
   discovering the American fleet first.

-  Keep in mind that although you have the advantage of a CV and CVL,
   Guadalcanal equalizes the odds.  You may want to assign the CV and CVL the
   duty of subduing Guadalcanal's air arm.

-  Once night falls and if you are close enough, you may be able to engage in a
   night battle to further weaken the American fleet.

+-----------------------------+
| 13.5.2  American Strategies |------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------+

-  Send out scouts and keep your fleet back away from Guadalcanal.  You can
   take advantage of the base by using it to launch strikes against the
   Japanese fleet.

-  If you can work your way around, you may be able to catch the Japanese be-
   tween your carriers and Guadalcanal.  If this occurs, you can do a lot of
   damage.

-  With the advent of gunnery radar, you should be able to engage in a night
   action with the Japanese fleet and actually give a good accounting of your-
   self.

+------------------------------+
| 13.5.3  What Really Happened |-----------------------------------------------
+------------------------------+

The second major battle that raged in the Solomons.  The Americans learned of
an attempt by the Japanese navy to reinforce Guadalcanal.  The Americans
assembled 2 CV's, 1 BB, 3 CA's, 1 CL, and 11 DD's to counter this threat.  In
addition, Henderson airfield on Guadalcanal would also be offering support.
The Japanese sent in 2 CV's, 2 CVL's, 2 BB's, 13 CA's, 28 DD's, and 13 SS's to
mount the reinforcement operation.  In the struggle, the Americans managed to
sink a CVL and DD while seriously damaging a CVL, DD, and 2 SS's while
sustaining serious damage to one CV.  It was a victory for the Americans
because they turned the reinforcement away and prevented them from landing.

Japanese Commanders     :  18
United States Commanders:  18

The Americans are attempting to prevent the Japanese from reinforcing
Guadalcanal.

+-----------------------------+
| 13.6.1  Japanese Strategies |------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------+

-  Although you have more carriers then the Americans, the odds are evened by
   the fact that the Americans can use Guadalcanal as a base.  This means you
   will have to split your efforts.

-  Be wary not only of the American carriers prowling around, but also of the
   submarines.  These can cause some serious damage to your units if you're not
   careful.

-  Send out scouts to find the American carriers.  Once you find them, use one
   fleet to launch airstrikes on the carriers while you use the single carrier
   fleet to hit Guadalcanal.

-  If you believe a night action necessary, detach your warships from your
   carriers.  Be aware that America possesses gunnery radar so you probably
   won't be able to "sneak" up on them.

+-----------------------------+
| 13.6.2  American Strategies |------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------+

-  Search radar may already pick up the Japanese fleet.  If this is the case,
   get the airstrike set up so that it can be launched at first light.  You may
   be able to catch the Japanese fleet "flatfooted".

-  Remember that you have Guadalcanal to also use as a base.  If the Japanese
   fleet has already been identified, then additional airstrikes may also be
   launched from Guadalcanal.

-  During nighttime, use technology to your advantage.  Since your warships
   have gunnery radar, this will enable you to get in the first shots plus add
   to their accuracy.  This will go a long way to causing serious damage to the
   Japanese fleet.

-  Use your submarine fleets to get around the Japanese fleets.  Try to "pin"
   them in between your submarine fleets.

+------------------------------+
| 13.6.3  What Really Happened |-----------------------------------------------
+------------------------------+

Also known as the battle of Santa Cruz.  
The Japanese made another attempt to reinforce their troops on Guadalcanal.  To
accomplish this, they sent in 3 CV's, 1 CVL, 4 BB's, 8 CA's, 3 CL's, 33 DD's,
and 12 SS's.  To counter this threat, the Americans beefed up the aircraft at
Henderson Airfield.  In addition, they sent in 2 CV's, 1 BB, 3 CA's, 3 CL's,
and 14 DD's.  The battle raged for two days.  When the smoke cleared, the
Americans lost 1 CV and 1 DD while heavy damage was incurred on 1 CV, 1 BB, and
3 DD's.  The Japanese lost 1 CL and 2 DD's with heavy damage to 1 CV, 1 CVL,
1 CA, and 1 DD.  Although the Americans came up on the short end of this
exchange, the Japanese lost more then just ships:  They also lost many trained
pilots.  Instead of exploiting their success, the Japanese withdrew without
reinforcing Guadalcanal.

Japanese Commanders     :  16
United States Commanders:  17

The Americans are attempting to invade Saipan and the Japanese are going for
a showdown.

+-----------------------------+
| 13.7.1  Japanese Strategies |------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------+

-  The Americans possess a significant amount of firepower.  Even with your
   islands, you will have to find a way to take them piecemeal or they can
   launch concentrated strikes and wipe out your fleet.

-  Use your submarines to track where the Americans are.  Don't use them for
   offensive operations since you need intel more desperately.  Once you locate
   the American carriers, concentrate on one fleet at a time.

-  You may get assistance from the islands but only if the Americans are within
   range.

-  Keep moving around and strike quickly, then move again.  With these hit and
   run tactics, you may stand a good chance of putting a serious "ding" in the
   American fleet.

+-----------------------------+
| 13.7.2  American Strategies |------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------+

-  Use your two submarine fleets as both an early warning system plus also to
   harass the enemy fleet.  Set them us so that the Japanese fleet must pass
   through both fleets of subs.

-  Get away from the islands and launch scouts to find the Japanese fleet.  Go
   after the carrier fleets (once they are identified) and worry about the
   surface fleets later.

-  You may have to dedicate a carrier fleet to the islands to assist in the
   "softening" up process.  Once the islands defenses have been pretty much
   nullified, you can send in the invasion force.

-  Move up your heavy warships under the cover of night and start blasting the
   islands.  Go after airfields first, then find other targets of opportunity.

-  Concentrate all your fleet airpower and go after the Japanese ships.  You
   should be able to do significant amounts of damage.  Use your submarine
   fleets to pick off stragglers.

+------------------------------+
| 13.7.3  What Really Happened |-----------------------------------------------
+------------------------------+

This was the Japanese plan "A-Go" where they would have a decisive battle with
the American fleet.  To achieve this, the Japanese planned to use planes not
only from their carriers, but also from Guam to "shuttle" back-and-forth to
attack the American fleet.  Unfortunately, due to poorly trained pilots, the
Japanese lost a significant amount of planes that day and it was referred to as
the "Marianas Turkey Shoot".  The Japanese assembled 3 CV's, 6 CVL's, 5 BB's,
11 CA's, 2 CL's, and 28 DD's for the operation.  The Americans, due to the fact
they were invading the Marianas, had assembled 7 CV's, 8 CVL's, 7 BB's, 8 CA's,
9 CL's, and 67 DD's.  After the smoke cleared, the Japanese had lost 2 CV's,
1 CVL while sustaining heavy damage to 1 CV, 2 CVL's, 1 BB, and 1 CA.  The
Americans only sustained minor damage to 2 CV's and 2 BB's.

Japanese Commanders     :  14
United States Commanders:  17

The Americans are attempting to invade Leyte and the Japanese are going for a
showdown.

+-----------------------------+
| 13.8.1  Japanese Strategies |------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------+

-  Although you have several fleets, only one of them possesses any semblance
   of air power.  Be wary of American air power since Manila won't be able to
   supply a whole lot of planes for action.

-  Use scouts from your carriers and heavy surface ships to find the American
   fleet.  If you discover their carriers, launch strikes to even the odds a
   little.

-  If you must engage in surface battle, nighttime is the best time to do it
   due to the overwhelming odds of air support the Americans have.

-  Keep in mind that your fleet is spread out.  If you work the parts right,
   you may be able to divide up the American forces and destroy them piecemeal.

+-----------------------------+
| 13.8.2  American Strategies |------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------+

-  You have enough carrier fleets to do some major damage.  Use scouts to
   locate the Japanese carriers since these pose the greatest threat.

-  Once they are identified, launch strikes against them with two carrier
   fleets.  Use the other fleets as both back up and for short notice if you
   discover the rest of the Japanese fleet.

-  Use the fleet with your BB's to engage in a surface action against the
   Japanese fleet.  You should be able to "plaster" them with a huge volume of
   firepower.

-  Your submarines can serve as both lookouts and also to strike at a Japanese
   fleet if the opportunity presents itself.  The best place to hunt is where
   there are narrow passages or "choke points" the Japanese must pass through.

+------------------------------+
| 13.8.3  What Really Happened |-----------------------------------------------
+------------------------------+

The return of the Americans to the Philippines.  The Japanese realized that
with the loss of the Philippines, they would be cut off from their resources to
the south.  They implemented "Sho-1" which would be the big showdown with the
Americans.  They split their fleet up into three parts.  The first part would
come in from the south and it would consist of 2 BB's, 3 CA's, 1 CL, and
11 DD's.  The second part which would go through the center consisted of
5 BB's, 10 CA's, 2 CL's, and 16 DD's.  The third part was a diversionary force
and it was up to the north.  It was composed of 1 CV, 3 CVL's, 2 BB's, 3 CL's,
and 5 DD's.  The Americans came at Leyte with everything they had.  This
consisted of 8 CV's, 8 CVL's, 18 CVE's, 12 BB's, 10 CA's, 13 CL's, 117 DD's,
and 29 SS's.  The battle raged from October 25 to the 28th.  When the smoke
cleared, the Japanese fleet was practically annihilated.  The first part lost
2 BB's, 1 CA, and 3 DD's while 1 CA, 1 CL, and 1 DD sustained heavy damage.
The second part lost 1 BB, 5 CA's, and 1 DD  while 2 BB's, 3 CA's, and 3 DD's
took heavy damage.  The third part of the Japanese force lost 1 CV, 3 CVL's,
1 CL, and 2 DD's. 

The Americans, in contrast, lost 1 CVL, 2 CVE's, 3 DD's, and 3 SS's while heavy
damage was done to 5 CVE's, 2 CL's, and 5 DD's.  For all practical intents and
purposes, the Japanese were never able to launch another naval operation as
this would go down in history as one of the biggest naval battles in the world.

Japanese Commanders     :  14
United States Commanders:  16

The Americans are attempting to invade Okinawa and the Japanese are making a
last effort to defend the island.

+-----------------------------+
| 13.9.1  Japanese Strategies |------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------+

-  This will truly be a suicidal mission.  With only a DBB to take on the
   American fleet, you will need a lot of luck and a whole lot of bravery.

-  Use your submarine to scout out the American fleet.  Do not use it to attack
   since it is more valuable as a recon tool.

-  Once the American fleet is identified, wait for night then attempt to do a
   night action against the carriers.  Be aware that they are guarded by BB's
   and C's so it won't be easy.

-  You may be able to do this a couple more times and hopefully you can snatch
   victory from the jaws of defeat.

+-----------------------------+
| 13.9.2  American Strategies |------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------+

-  This one is pretty simple as compared to the other battles.  Assemble your
   carrier force so that you can use one to subdue Naha while the others go
   after Kure.

-  You should be able to catch the Yamato either in Kure or just leaving.  If
   not, use scouts and subs to find the Japanese fleet.

-  Be aware that the Japanese still have Naha so expect air attacks from the
   island.  You should be able to sink the Yamato and its escorts without too
   much difficulty.

+-------------------------------+
| 13.9.3  What Really Happened |-----------------------------------------------
+-------------------------------+

By this time, the Japanese fleet was basically wiped out.  To attack the
American forces, the Japanese resorted to using kamikaze attacks.  They also
devised a plan to launch the fleet one more time.  They were going to use the
Yamato as a permanent gun position on Okinawa.  To achieve this, they loaded
only enough fuel for a one-way trip.  They then sent the Yamato out with a CL
and 8 DD's.  The Americans discovered the Yamato a couple of hundred miles away
from Okinawa and commenced to launching airstrikes against the Japanese ships.
The Japanese ships never stood a chance and only a couple of DD's survived
their last sortie.

| 14.  SHIPS IN PTO |==========================================================
+===================+

The next charts will detail every ship that is in PTO.  Although the charts are
designed with Scenario one in mind, they will work equally well with the other
scenarios as a reference as to when ships will be entering service.

Ships will be broken down according to what type of ship they are such as CV,
BB, C, etc.  For each entry, ship details will be given as the game initially
sets them up or adds them (in other words, before you may modify or do a total
repair on them).

The overall LEGEND for all charts in this Chapter is:

AS = ANTI-SHIP; AA = ANTI-AIR; FO = FORTITUDE; SP = SPEED; CA = HANGER
CAPACITY; DATE = DATE SHIP BECOMES AVAILABLE*; CLASS = CLASS SPECIFIC SHIP
BELONGS TO**

NOTE:  If the ship's name has another name after it in parenthesis, then that
       other name is the actual name of the ship.

 *  "START" will be put into the DATE column if you initially start with that
    ship.

**  CLASS information can be found in Chapter 15.  In addition, if a ship
    doesn't exist or the game spelled it in such a way as to make the ship
    impossible to find, then a "??" will be in the space for CLASS.

| 15.  SHIP CLASSES |==========================================================
+===================+

Ship Classes can be thought more of a standardized blueprint for a specific
type of ship.  Usually these classes adopted the name of the first ship whose
keel was laid down.  For example, the Iowa Class of battleships for the United
States or the Tone Class of cruisers for Japan.

Although specific ships within a class may have had some variation as to
secondary armaments or crew complements, they were still a member of whatever
Class they were launched with.

In addition to Ship Classes, different countries adopted a somewhat
standardized way they named their ships.  This will be further expanded upon
for each individual country.

As you are playing PTO, you will get whatever ships that were in
existence before the war starts and also ships developed after the outbreak of
war.

The data will be arranged in alphabetical order.  This data is to be used in
conjunction with the ships you use in PTO and it provides a historical
reference to said ships.

This is how the data will be arranged:

/ 15.1  Allies /_______________________________________________________________
---------------

From the earliest of times, the British have always prided themselves on being
a powerful, seafaring nation.  Until the Revolutionary War, the British had
pretty much remained undefeated.  From that point on, they watched the United
States, then Japan start taking the lead.

Naming conventions for British ships aren't too standardized, per se.  They
only named their capital warships while "lesser" ships such as some light
cruisers, destroyers, and submarines usually ended up with a letter
designation.  The naming conventions were:

Battleships and Battlecruisers:  Usually named after royalty or famous
                                 admirals.
Carriers                      :  Tended to be regal or exotic names.
Heavy and Light Cruisers      :  Named after cities in England.
Destroyers and Submarines     :  Usually used a letter as the class.

The United States navy "came of age" after the War of 1812.  From that point
on, America had a fleet that rivaled Great Britain's.  The Spanish-American War
of 1897 saw the American fleet destroy the Spanish fleet and acquire their
overseas lands.  After a massive ship building program, America took their
fleet around the world in 1907 to show off to the world.  World War 1 saw some
ship building but nothing significant.  America experimented with aircraft
carriers but never put much into them since the fleet was still run by
"Battleship Admirals".  This mindset changed as World War 2 started.  The
United States started a massive ship building program that not only made up for
their losses, but put them ahead, permanently, of Japan.

The United States built the most massive fleet in the world and once they were
off the defensive, proceeded to decimate the Japanese fleet and retake the
islands in the Pacific.

Naming conventions for American ships are pretty strict (although there were
some exceptions).  Most of the frontline ships had a naming convention assigned
to them.  The naming conventions were:

Battleships and Battlecruisers:  States and possessions
Fleet and Light Carriers      :  Famous ships or battles
Escort Carriers               :  Sounds, bays, and famous battles
Heavy and Light Cruisers      :  Cities
Destroyers                    :  People in the navy or marines who
                                 distinguished themselves
Submarines                    :  Marine creatures such as fish and sea-type
                                 mammals

+------------------------+
| 15.1.1  Fleet Carriers |-----------------------------------------------------
+------------------------+

The biggest carriers that could carry the largest amount of planes.  Fleet
carriers could sustain operations for long periods of time serving as
"floating" runways.  Fleet carriers proved to be extremely versatile for any
role they were assigned to.

| 15.1.3  Escort Carriers |----------------------------------------------------
+-------------------------+

Used as support ships, these carriers gained wide fame when they were built
into the "hunter-killer" groups patrolling for U-Boats in the Atlantic.  Anti-
submarine planes would be launched and recovered on their decks.  This in turn
allowed the "air umbrella" to be extended across the whole Atlantic and make it
very risky for U-Boats to operate.  In the Pacific, they were used to shuttle
aircraft and also to provide the platform for air strikes during invasions.
The carriers themselves were lightly armed and armored and were not designed
for any real contact with the enemy.

Battleships enjoyed a prominent role before World War 2.  In World War 2,
though, they got relegated to the "back burner" as carriers became the kings of
the sea.  From that point on, battleships were mainly used to protect the
carriers and provide fire support for invasions.

submarines were able to effectively blockade Japan from its resources.  By wars

/ 15.2  Japan /________________________________________________________________
--------------

Unlike the other major powers, Japan was thrown on a steep learning curve.
Since the time Perry "forced" open Japan in the mid-nineteenth century, Japan
has strived to keep up with the Western world.  After World War 1, Japan
emerged as one of the victorious nations.  Unfortunately, the Washington Treaty
made it seem like they were one of the losers.  Their shipbuilding was
restricted to a fraction of Great Britain and the United States.  To keep
peace, they signed this treaty.  They learned, though, all about the different
facets of naval warfare.  Although the United States and Britain started to toy
around with carrier warfare, it was Japan that perfected it and forced the
other nations to "catch-up".

The first two years were successful for the Japanese, but it also put a strain
on their resources.  Since they were an island nation, they required most
things to be imported.  By the end of the war, the Japanese navy was just a
slim shadow of its former self.

Naming conventions for Japanese ships are actually rather strict.  Most of the
frontline ships had a naming convention assigned to them.  The naming
conventions were:

Battleships and Battlecruisers:  Ancient provinces.
Carriers                      :  Dragons and birds.
Heavy Cruisers                :  Mountains
Light Cruisers                :  Rivers.
Destroyers                    :  Meteorological names, trees, flowers, or
                                 fruits.
Submarines                    :  Usually used a letter(s) as the class.

+------------------------+
| 15.2.1  Fleet Carriers |-----------------------------------------------------
+------------------------+

Japan's first carriers were built on the hulls of heavy cruisers.  Since the
treaty limit only was strict concerning warships such as battleships and
cruisers, the Japanese were able to build carriers at will.  By the time World
War 2 started, the Japanese were masters of carrier warfare and dispelled most
myths of other warship superiority.

Japan caught up fast with the world in the realm of battleships.  Many Japanese
admirals still believed the battleship to be the king of the sea.  After Pearl
Harbor, many of these admirals were replaced by the carrier admirals.  Japan is
also noted as being the only nation to construct two battleships that
incorporated the 18-inch gun.  Unfortunately, they never really got to test
these ships in combat since carrier aircraft sank them both.

The Japanese never invested heavily into their submarine fleet.  What they did
have, they used more as support ships such as recon and to do supply runs.
Some of the Japanese submarines that were put out for battle didn't do too bad.
They managed to sink a few ships and cause America to take notice.  Overall,
though, the Japanese squandered their submarine fleet and didn't use it to its
fullest extent.

| 16.  RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT |==============================================
+===============================+

Bravery and guts aren't always enough when you are at war.  Technology plays a
big part in who will get the edge.  This was proven time and time again during
World War 2 when the Allies or Japanese would surprise each other with some
"wonder" weapon that was previously unknown.  Of course, you must pay a price
to move along the "technological ladder" if you want to either keep up or move
ahead of the other countries.

Technology in PTO is pretty straightforward.  Certain abilities must be above
a specific number in order for you to gain a specific technology.  Sometimes
these technologies require you to have more then one ability above a specific
number.

Below are the technologies in alphabetical order and the ability requirements
for each:

+--------------------+------------------------------------------+
| TECHNOLOGY         | REQUIREMENTS                             |
+--------------------+------------------------------------------+
+--------------------+------------------------------------------+
| ADVANCED WARSHIPS  | ART > 79, STEL > 79, ENG > 79, ELCT > 79 |
+--------------------+------------------------------------------+
| JETS               | AIR > 94                                 |
+--------------------+------------------------------------------+
| LONG-RANGE BOMBERS | AIR > 79                                 |
+--------------------+------------------------------------------+
| RADAR, GUNNERY     | ELCT > 79 OR AV > 79                     |
+--------------------+------------------------------------------+
| RADAR, SEARCH      | ELCT > 79 OR AV > 79                     |
+--------------------+------------------------------------------+
| ROCKETS            | AIR > 80, ELCT > 80                      |
+--------------------+------------------------------------------+

+=========================================+
| 17.  DESIGNING AND REMODELING SHIPS 101 |====================================
+=========================================+

One of the more fun aspects of PTO is being able to remodel or design  your
ships.  There are pros and cons to doing either.

Modifying usually takes less money, resources, and time but you are restricted
to the base type of ship you are modifying or you are limited to what you can
convert a ship to.  This also applies to doing a total repair on a ship.

Designing usually takes more money, resources, and time but you can choose any
type of ship to build.

Whichever way you go, there are some things that you must know before creating
new classes of ships.  These things involve weaponry, armor protection,
aircraft, anti-air ability, etc.  The ship you create probably has come about
due to a need requiring fulfillment or for a ship that seems fit in with the
scheme of your fleet.

The next few chapters will be divided up according to each part of the ship you
will be building or modifying.  Before you dive headlong into this process, you
should go through these simple steps to make sure you aren't creating something
that already exists or something that will strain your time, resources, or
money to the breaking point.

-  Determine exactly what the purpose of the ship is.  Remember, you can only
   have 150 ships if you are the Allies or 120 ships if you are the Japanese.
   a ship.

-  Once you have determined the purpose, next you need to decide what has to be
   put into the ship class to enable it to fulfill that purpose.

-  Determine your resources, money, and time.  If any of these is in short
   supply, I would recommend waiting for another ship type to show up.

-  Make sure you fully understand what you are creating from all aspects.  It
   is great to have ship with massive anti-ship or anti-air capability.  If,
   though, you traded that kind of power for speed or defense, you may want to
   rethink the reason you want a new type of ship.

 ________________
/ 17.1  Weapons /______________________________________________________________
----------------

All ships have weapons of some sort to provide both offensive and defensive
capabilities.  The type of ship will determine what kinds of weapon systems can
be installed.  Some of the different weapon systems include guns, anti-aircraft
guns, and planes).

Each of the weapon systems contribute in some way to the overall
characteristics of the type of ship.  Research contributes in improving
either the weapon itself or the effectiveness of said weapon.  The higher your
Artillery ability, the more guns you can put on your ship.

In addition to Artillery ability, the type of ship also determines the number
of guns you can have.  Below is a chart showing the range for the number of
guns you can have on each ship type.  This is based on an Artillery ability of
99.  In addition, you will see a column for TOTAL ALLOWED number.  This means
that you cannot exceed the total allowed number of guns when you add your AA
gun number to your AS gun number:

LEGEND:  SHIP = SHIP TYPE; AS = # OF ANTI-SHIP GUNS; AA = # OF ANTI-AIR GUNS;
         TA = TOTAL GUNS ALLOWED

+------+--------+--------+-----++------+--------+--------+-----+
| SHIP |   AS   |   AA   | TA  || SHIP |   AS   |   AA   | TA  |

/ 17.2  Armor and Speed /______________________________________________________
------------------------

If your ships are going to survive the war, they will need to have adequate
armor to protect them.  Of course, you must make the trade-off between Armor
and Speed.  The Steel ability enables you to increase your armored protection
while your Engineering ability allows you to make better engines.

In addition to Steel and Engineering ability, the type of ship also determines
the amount of Armor and maximum Speed your engines can provide.  Below is a
chart showing the range for the amount of Armor you can have and the maximum
speed your engines will provide.  This is based on Steel and Engineering
abilities of 99.  In addition, you will see a column for TOTAL ALLOWED number.
This means that you cannot exceed the total amount of Armor and Speed when you
add your Armor number to your Speed number:

LEGEND:  SHIP = SHIP TYPE; AR = AMOUNT OF ARMOR; SP = SPEED OF SHIP;
         TA = TOTAL ARMOR & SPEED ALLOWED

+------+--------+--------+-----++------+--------+--------+-----+
| SHIP |   AR   |   SP   | TA  || SHIP |   AR   |   SP   | TA  |

 _________________
/ 17.3  Aircraft /_____________________________________________________________
-----------------

Most every ship in PTO can carry aircraft.  Only CV's and CVL's can carry
fighters and bombers (in addition to scouts).  All other ships can only carry
scouts.  If you choose to convert a ship to fire rockets, then the numbers
reflect the maximum amount of rockets you could equip your ship with.  Below is
a chart outlining how many aircraft or rockets (maximum) each ship can possibly
carry:

 ________________________________
/ 17.4  Putting It All Together /______________________________________________
--------------------------------

Once you have decided on the type of ship you are going to build, it is now
time to determine the characteristics of said ship.  Each ship has a base
material cost.  Adding an AA gun, AS gun, Armor, Speed, and/or hanger space for
one plane costs you one unit of material.

Adding Gunnery or Search Radar will cost you 15 units of material per radar
type.

In addition to material, each ship has a cost in Fuel and Industry.  The faster
you want you ship built means more Industry gets expended.  These numbers
change depending on whether you are building a new ship or whether you are
modifying an existing ship.  These things are discussed in the next two sub-
chapters.

+-----------------------------+
| 17.4.1  Building a New Ship |------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------+

Below is a chart showing the cost to build each type of ship.  This chart
refers to a basic ship that only has minimal things such as AA and AS guns = 0,
Armor = 1, Speed = 5, and Hanger Space = 0.  Also, the ship doesn't have Jets,
Rockets, Gunnery Radar, or Search Radar selected.  In addition, the chart shows
the various industry consumption rates depending on how fast you want the ship
built.

| 18.  BASES |-----------------------------------------------------------------
+============+

In order to cripple the enemy, you must eliminate their ability to wage war.
The most effective way is to cut them off from their resources.  You can do
this by taking their bases.  By doing this,
you will eventually "choke" off all resources and eliminate an enemies ability
to conduct operations.

Each base has come kind of resource whether it is funds, oil, or iron.    It is
by a combination of the territories and the resources that a country can
effectively conduct defensive or offensive operations.

Below is the data for all 50 bases in PTO:

LEGEND:  FE = IRON ORE; POP = POPULATION; IND = INDUSTRY; R/S = REPAIR OR
         RESUPPLY**; END/ARM = ENDURANCE AND ARMS LEVEL OF THE BASE;
         COORD = LOCATION OF THE BASE IN (X,Y) COORDINATES

 *  Bases that are homeports will have a HP after the R/S letter.
**  All bases with Repair facilities can resupply.

| 19.  CONCLUSION |============================================================
+=================+

PTO was one of the first war games I bought for the Sega Genesis.  I was
immediately impressed with the level of detail and the overall
comprehensiveness of the game.  Although the graphics weren't fancy, it was
the gameplay that was the real joy.  The game created a "fog of war" by
enabling free movement across the Pacific and Indian Ocean basins.  This meant
you had to actively search out your opponent in order to engage them.  Another
great this was being able to design and build your own ships.  This added a
degree of personalization to this game.  In addition, no two games end up going
the same way regardless of the consistent things you try to do.  Conducting
battles could sometimes be a real "nail-biter" even if you were fully prepared.
PTO can be both a challenging and frustrating game.  This is especially true if
you aren't too tactically minded since this game requires one to think many
moves ahead.  This guide, though, was a lot of fun to write and I hope you get
as much enjoyment out of reading it as I did writing it.  If you do have other
ideas or thoughts, please e-mail me and share them.  Who knows, maybe I'll
start a Q&A chapter in this guide if enough people ask the same questions.
Anyway, thank you again for reading this guide.
