There are seven control points on this map, all of which are under Japanese control initially.
The Americans start off with one Essex-class aircraft carrier, one North Carolina-class battleship, two freighters, and one Landing Ship Medium for the amphibious assault. The Japanese have one Type B1 submarine and a torpedo boat to counter the American naval threat.
Whichever side holds five or more control points will cause a ticket bleed to the other side.
The atoll is surrounded by a thin but long stretch of coral, which can hinder landing craft from landing closer to the beach. The Americans have a powerful naval force, whereas the Japanese have a lot of stationary weapons for local defense.
