Japanese 4 Fleet

4 Fleet was a regional force organized in 1937 to defend the Mandates.  During the Centrifugal Offensive, it was given responsibility for seizing nearby Allied positions, such as Rabaul, Wake Island, and the Gilberts, of which only Wake was strongly defended. places AO Iro with Wake Invasion Force. However, no other source mentions an oiler with Wake Invasion Force. Rottman (2002) places 4 Fleet at Palau until February 1942 but this is not confirmed by any other source.
