    Hi Tuor. Immediately post Pearl Harbour the Japanese had more carriers than the US. If the carriers at sea on the day of Pearl Harbour had attacked the Japanese carriers you MIGHT have got lucky, caused enough damage and maybe even sunk a few that Japanese ops in '42 would be curtailed. Equally the Japanese might have got lucky, sunk yours and invaded Midway. Who knows? As I said though counting on luck is bad strategy and personally in Jan '42 I'd bet on the Japanese. They were worked up for full on war, the US took a little while to catch up.

    One thing I won't argue about is repair time. The US could fix damaged ships in a fraction of the time Japan could. Its one of your biggest assets.
