When resolving engagements, am I right to think that you use the Engagement Resolution chart to resolve engagements in sequence, starting from the top, CG vs CG? If there's no CG vs CG, then you go to the next line, No CG vs CG; if none here, then to CG vs. no CG, and so on?
So on the turn record, what you write down are your four command decisions, including both naval and non-naval command decisions, and the ship groups assigned to each one. If the Japanese send out a CG1 and CG2, these would appear on the same line item in the turn record, because both are CG missions. Correct?
I quote engagement C:
If Henderson Field fell and the IJN sorties a CGES, roll once for each Carrier Group to randomly determine the Allied
surface mission attacked. Duplicates are possible. If attacked and damaged, the target force aborts its mission.
What's a CGES, and is it a CG mission or what? How is it different from any other CG mission? Do you have to designate it as a CGES, or can it start life as a CG mission? I just don't get it.
The rules seem to indicate that a cruiser squadron can be part of several missions in a single month. So a Japanese cruiser squadron can be part of a CG mission, a Bt mission, and a P mission? In that way, it MIGHT be in combat twice in a month, depending on the Matrix outcomes? OR: a Japanese CV can be part of a CG mission and a CGES mission, which I assume means it isn't a CG mission at all but at escort mission or what?
