    |  4.   WELCOME |==============================================================
    +===============+
    
    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:
    
                 +------------------+-------------------------------+

    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.

    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.

    +------------------------------------------------------------+
    | 10.1.3  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 |--------------------------------------------------

    | 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:

    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 | 
                      +------+-----------++------+-----------+
                      +------+-----------++------+-----------+

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

                      +------+-----------++------+-----------+
    
    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 |-------------------------------------------------------------
    \================/

    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.
    
    /====================\

    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

    +-------------+
    | 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:

    +--------------+
    | 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.

    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.

    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.

    | 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:

    United States Fleets:  As above

    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.

    -  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.

       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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    reinforcing Guadalcanal.

    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.

    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.

    / 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.

    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.

    +===============================+
    
    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                             |

    | 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

    / 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.
