Coral Sea

USS Lexington, Coral Sea, Zuikaku,

Coral Sea was a scenario that ran in Aces High in April, 2005. The basic motivation was to have a scenario based on the WWII battle of Coral Sea, with the US carriers Lexington and Yorktown and supporting ships fighting it out against the Japanese carriers Shokaku, Zuikaku, and Shoho and supporting ships, which were working on invading Port Moresby.
