I don't think anyone has that many copies of the Air Pack ...

I don't know of one. There is, however, a Hong Kong scenario that reflects fighting just after Pearl Harbor.

Quote:
Historical Background:
The Japanese attack on Hong Kong began on the mainland shortly after 8am on December 8, 1941, less than eight hours after their surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. The British, Canadian and Indian forces of Major-General Christopher Michael Maltby, supplemented by the Hong Kong Volunteer Defence Forces, did their best to resist the Japanese invasion, despite being vastly outnumbered and facing the much more battle-weathered troops of General Takashi's 38th Division.

By December 13, the last of the Commonwealth forces on the mainland, the Indian Rajputs, had retreated to Hong Kong Island, where Major-General Maltby organized the defense. On the 18th, the Japanese crossed the Strait, landing on the northeast of the island and soon captured the Sai Wan Battery.

Fierce fighting continued, but within 2 days, the island's defense forces were hopelessly divided. They nonetheless held until Christmas day, when, running out of water and ammunition, British Colonial officials led by the Governor of Hong Kong, surrendered. This was the first time in history that a British Crown Colony was surrendering to an invading force. The garrison had held out for 17 long days.

Actually the fighting was on the SAME day. Don't forget the International Date Line.

As stated above, the number of Air Packs required would be substantial. Furthermore, the current M44 system does not facilitate seaborne units very well. In addition, a map board largely water with islands would probably be needed.

I just don't think it would scale well to that.

It would be difficult with all the planes and ships on the map, but now to think about it, a naval expansion may be good for Memoir'44 system.
