At nine o'clock on the morning of July 1, the Beiyang Fleet began to change course, and all the warships were heading southeast. As a result, the two armies were almost in a high-speed advance, and Yamamoto was still unaware of this. Of course, according to the position reports of submarines and aircraft, Lin Tai had felt that if he continued to maintain this state, he would be able to launch an air attack on the enemy fleet by the afternoon of the day after tomorrow. So he immediately sent a telegram to the Navy Department, put forward his own views, and once again asked the reconnaissance troops to reconnoitre the combined fleet more carefully, so that he could correctly judge the other side's movements, so that he could more accurately grasp the other side's movements. Just as Lin Taizeng was gearing up for a big fight, the Navy Department's reply telegram arrived. Looking at this telegram, Lin Taizeng's mood immediately fell to the freezing point. For the Admiralty had not only rebuffed his request to attack, but had ordered itself not to rush. As the whole tactical planner, Lin Jianzhang should consider the whole more. Although the preemptive strike of the Beiyang Fleet can have an unexpected effect, if the battle starts in the afternoon of the day after tomorrow,Blowing Filling Capping combiblock, it will greatly affect the attack efficiency of its own troops, and its own aircraft will inevitably land at night when returning, and this tactic is also very dangerous in peacetime, let alone in wartime. Flocks of planes were flying around like headless chickens in the dark, and it was easy for a lot of things to happen. More importantly, if the assault did not cause losses to the enemy,water filling machine, then the plan they had worked so hard to make would be in vain. What's more, night fighting is one of the best tactics of the Japanese Navy. So Lin Taizeng immediately changed his tactics, and the huge Beiyang fleet formed a battle formation in the sea area 900 square kilometers west of Jeju Island. The whole fleet is centered on the battleship Zhonghua 1 and the heavy cruiser Yangtian of the Second Battleship Fleet. The aircraft carrier Hurricane and the escort command ship Nu Tao of the Second Air Group are 12 kilometers west of the battleship Zhonghua 1. The storm aircraft carrier and the escort navigation ship of the Third Air Force are 13 kilometers east of China 1, while the soul of the entire fleet, Lin Taizeng's flagship storm aircraft carrier and the escort warship Yuntian are 10 nautical miles ahead of China 1, and in front of them. The cruisers Dingyuan, Weiyuan, Zhenyuan, Jiyuan and some gunboats formed a peripheral defense network, and on both sides of the main force of the fleet, there was a battle array of 50 submarines. As a result, a huge cone-shaped formation was formed in the west of Jeju Island, Beverage packing machine ,PET blow moulding machine, like a sharp sword ready to be unsheathed at any time! After the fleet was lined up, a flight captain who was on a flight patrol mission over the fleet described in his diary what he saw at that time: "We were flying Bluebird fighters on a combat patrol mission. During this flight, what really impressed me was the huge and perfect steel garland built around the Zhonghua No.1." In the center of the wreath was the flagship of our entire Beiyang fleet, the Tornado, surrounded by a group of light ships. Our team of fighters passed over their heads several times, and the scene was really shocking. This is probably the most magnificent fleet that has ever appeared on the earth, and I don't think the Royal Navy can match it. On this side, Lin Taizeng had already set up a battle array, while on the other side, the reconnaissance and harassment of the Japanese combined fleet by the Chinese reconnaissance forces continued. The Imperial Navy's submarine force suddenly appeared at the back of the combined fleet, where the Japanese logistics supply fleet was. These submarines fired about eight torpedoes at the formation, four of which hit the target, and two tankers and one integrated supply ship were sunk. The Japanese destroyers in charge of defense in the periphery immediately carried out intensive clearance of the waters, but there was no harvest.
Half an hour later, the air wing belonging to the Chinese naval air force appeared on the starboard side of the destroyer formation on the right wing of the combined fleet. At an altitude of 5000 meters, 500 kilograms of bombs were in the nearby waters or on the deck of Japanese warships. Yamamoto immediately ordered the organization to fight back. The battle lasted for ten minutes until the Japanese carrier-based aircraft arrived. The Chinese plane quickly flew high into the sky and left the battlefield at high speed. Because of the invention of aircraft and aircraft carriers, the naval warfare between China and Japan is mainly based on air warfare and submarine warfare, which is also the development trend of naval warfare. Wind and Cloud Rise Again: World War II Chapter 556 Sea and Air Battle Then the Japanese fighter planes patrolling the periphery spotted the Chinese plane again, but this time it was a water transport plane, which could not fly very high. Seeing this situation, Captain Izumi Inoue, the squadron leader of Japan's 3rd Fighter Squadron, who had lost his temper after being tricked by the Chinese reconnaissance plane for a long time, could no longer bear it. Under the cover of the wingman, his plane rushed at high speed to the plane that was still maintaining its cruising speed, firing at the other side, and the shells miraculously concentrated on the tail of the plane, emitting smoke. The plane crashed heavily into the sea with a long and urgent sound. Ten minutes later, two Japanese destroyers arrived at the area where the plane crashed and rescued the two Chinese pilots who were already shivering with cold. Yamamoto immediately ordered the two unfortunate Chinese to be interrogated. But although they were captured, they clenched their teeth and did not reveal a word. Finally, the Japanese found the communication records on the wreckage of the plane. The result surprised everyone. Because according to these communication records, China's most powerful Beiyang fleet is coming to them at full speed. Faced with this sudden change, Yamamoto fell silent. Because the news came so suddenly. Obviously, the Chinese have come prepared. They want to give themselves a fatal blow when they are not looking. But the most strange thing for Yamamoto was where the three aircraft carriers in the Beiyang Fleet came from. From the previous intelligence, the three aircraft carriers are like sinking into the sea, there is no news at all, but now suddenly appeared in the enemy fleet, it is hard to guess what is going on,PET bottle Mold, this time to pursue this issue is too late. Because according to the current speed, he is still 18 hours away from the other side, and a big battle is coming.
