Carriers attacking the same port or base attack at the same time. I found the fighting relationship of the Australians alongside the Americans quite interesting.

Then he places control pieces on all the sea areas, ports and bases he controls at the start, which are listed under TURN 1 on his chart.

The reason for this is due to the fact that the USN needs to threaten the Japanese Islands preferably through high-POC Indonesia with patrollers in the endgame, and Lae is the best base for this.
