"Enemy Carriers - Strawberry 5"

Artistic Screenshot


enemy carriers.jpg

                This is a recreation of the historic sighting of Vice Admiral Nagumo's carrier task force off of the Midway Islands in 1942 by the PBY Catalina known as it's code-name "Strawberry 5." It was about 250 miles out on it's patrol when it spotted the large task force, giving the American fleet consisting of the carriers Enterprise, Hornet, and Yorktown time to lessen the distance between the task forces in order to launch an early attack on the Japanese fleet as their aircraft were rearming and refueling from their strikes on the airstrips and boatyards on Midway. Shortly after Lt. Howard Ady and his crew aboard Strawberry 5 spotted the carriers, a second PBY which went by the code-name "Strawberry 12," spotted the Japanese aircraft on their initial attack on the island. The failure of these planes to eliminate the runways on Midway caused the dilemma of the Japanese commanders having to decide whether their planes should rearm with contact bombs to launch a second attack on Midway, or to instead equip torpedoes to deal with the U.S. carriers which had been spotted by IJN reconnaissance aircraft Northeast of the island. This indecision gave the American Dauntless dive bombers and TBD Devastators the opportunity to attack with little aerial opposition, leading to catastrophic damage maximized by the presence of munitions left exposed on the decks of the carriers Akagi, Kaga, and Sōryū. The last remaining fleet carrier, Hiryū, was badly damaged and was scuttled by her crew the following day after it became apparent that it was impossible to make repairs at sea and to defend the ship from aerial attack. This reduced the Japanese naval forces to only two fleet carriers, Shōkaku and Zuikaku, hindering any further offensive operations by Japanese forces in the Pacific Theater. If not for the sighting of the Japanese carrier force by Lt. Ady and his crew, Midway could have been lost and a successful attack could have been carried out on the Hornet, Enterprise, and Yorktown (sinking her before launching her air arm), leaving the Lexington Class ship Saratoga the last remaining U.S. navy carrier in the Pacific.
