2300 14 November 1942. Historically, the battleship Yamato was held back by Admiral Yamamoto and not committed during the Battle of Guadalcanal. At this time in the war, battleships were considered most useful as aircraft carrier escorts and the narrow channels off Guadalcanal Island were not considered suitable waters for ships of this size. But the Americans had shown in the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal that battleships could indeed fight in this situation and could prevail. In this hypothetical scenario, the Japanese attack on Guadalcanal of 14 November is modified to include the Yamoto and the addition of a reinforcement group whose task it is to reach the reinforcement objective in the scenario.
