koniu -> Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, Docup(A)-Koniu(J) (9/6/2011 7:41:02 PM)

Hi everybody,

After 3 months of playing Guadalcanal scenario we decided to start a GC game

I will try to write AAR viewed form Japanese side. And parallel to me, DOCUP will write AAR viewed from the light side of the force

Link http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=2899779


We decide so use standard HR and settings:

-Japanese player can`t hunt allied cv in 1 turn
-No deep penetration raids on turn one
-Fighters at 2nd best MVR
-No 4Es below 10,000ft, only Navy 4Es can fly below 10,000ft and only in naval attack mission.
-No strategic bombing in china
-No strategic bombing before 4/43
-Night Bombings (unit limit only for missions agains AF and ports)
A) No more than one unit performing night bombing per theater per day.
B) from 4/44 no more that two units per theater per day
C) from 3/45 no more that three units per theater per day (allies only) japan still two
-Units with permanently restricted HQs must not cross national Borders.
-Units with temporarily restricted HQs must pay full PP to transfer to non-restricted HQs before moving across national Border.
-No switching land unit HQ to unrestricted air HQs etc.or any other gamey variation to do this cheaply
-If a tactic seems gamey it probably is gamey
-PDU on

DOCUP -> RE: Docup (A) vs Koniu (J) (9/7/2011 4:27:07 PM)

Good Luck to us both.  I don't think Koniu will need much hes good at his moves.  I hope we both give the readers something fun to read and enjoy.  I haven't seen many Manila attacks in the AARs so this should be interesting.  Good Luck  See you all on the flip side if you want

koniu -> RE: Docup (A) vs Koniu (J) (9/8/2011 5:16:46 PM)

Battle plan:

KB
After drinking few beers or because i drink to many I decided to make my attack not on PH but in Manila.
BB in PH in my opinion are not as that big threat as lot of people think and there are few good reason why i should attack Manila. Mainly KB will give instant air support in Philippines and i want to use KB to support Mersing invasion, and cut off evacuation of Malaya (Australian units).

Philippines
Main forces will land in Lingayen to try to cut off some allied forces second big invasion will land south of Manila in Atimonan. I will try to supers ASAP allied air power in region. KB should give significant help. I will land in Davao to, but for me it is secondary invasion.

China
Not to much to do. Mainly I will check everything to find extra units and still have proper garrison level in cities. First thing to will be to reinforce Wuchang. My plan is to push back Chinese front to line Nanning-Changsha-Wuchang-Hankow-Kaifeng.

Burma
I need to start offensive ASAP. It will mainly depend of Malaya operation. For now i will start transporting troops, and prepare in logistical level.

Malaya
Standard invasion in Kota Barhu. Probably i will try invasion in Mersing to cut off allied forces in north. KB will give air support for this invasion. when Kota Barhu will be liberated and AF will be in good condition i will sent there some air support and transfer Ki-43 fighters. I will also send some reinforcement prom Japan to have bigger fire power in Singapore.

Dutch East Indies
Priority is to secure oil sources on Borneo and start to repair them. I do not know do repairing of refineries is worth of supplies spend on them. I must think about it. If possible i will make some KB raids on Batavia and Soerabaja to suppress reinforcement of Java. I will try to land on Ambon to establish AF, it is good place to hut for ships fleeing from Singapore and DEI

SE Pacific
I canceled wake invasion. My opponent, probably when hi will see where is my KB, will send one or two CV to support wake so i will take wake later. I will land on Guam and will take Gilbert islands, i will star preparation to landing in Rabul. My SS around PH will stay there to hunt for enemy. If i be lucky maybe they will hit CV returning home.

Home Islands, Manchuria, Korea
I start to organize convoys, they should be ready in few days. Major port star to expend to speed up load/unload operations I fill up air units with pilots and start to train them.

Later i will write about Air and ship production and other industrial stuff. And send action rapport from round one





koniu -> RE: Docup (A) vs Koniu (J) (9/8/2011 5:57:07 PM)

Having PDU ON is giving me great flexibility in air production. I decided to kill production of some planes and focus more on good models(I hope i am doing right, if not i will pay for this with blood)

Ship building is other thing. I stop building both BB and Shinano. Extra Naval Points will be spend to accelerate other CV`s. Merchant point will be use to accelerate TK`s production.

I also will double vehicles production. I thinking about expending little naval and merchant shipyards. I will also expend few repair shipyards, i will need them sooner or later.

Air production:

SoliInvictus202 -> RE: Docup (A) vs Koniu (J) (9/8/2011 7:11:50 PM)

are you sure that you want to stop Yamato AND Musashi?...

from my experience it's worth building them... if you get them within range of their main guns - they utterly destroy EVERYTHING....

in one AAR I read Yamato alone (with a few DDs in support) sunk 3 or 4 British BBs in one battle!

Some interesting choices. A few thoughts for you, use as you see fit.

Kate - 24/mo. For several of your CVL's, that is their only attack plane. As compared to the Val, I generally expect to have to build more Kates.

Netties vs Sallys - 78 .vs. 40. At the start, most of your IJN bomber groups are in ok shape. They need filling, but not too badly. Also, you have some groups arriving in early '42 that need fillling. However, after the losses against Force Z, it doesn't seem to be too hard to keep these groups in planes. OTOH, the IJA has a lot of bomber groups full of Anne/Mary/Ida/etc. I've never been able to use those 1E bombers too effectively. Range and bomb loads are so small. Lily costs the same to build as Sally, but has shorter legs and only 40% the bomb load. I can use the Lil effectively, but it is so hard for me to justify building more. Curious on how you see the IJA bomber roles?





koniu -> RE: Docup (A) vs Koniu (J) (9/10/2011 6:08:16 PM)

7 DEC 41

KB
Manila is attack. I repeat. Manila is attack.I hope for more SS sunk.For me it was 50% success.
I hope that presence of KB will suppress any allied air activity and in one or 2 days i will sail to support Malaya offensive.

Philippines
Mainly AF attacks to eliminate allied air power and give free sky for my bombers.
Only Bataan invasion in this turn. Other invasion forces on move or they are loading on ships.
Three SC TF˛s set to hunt and destroy enemy surface fleet. One north of Manila will protect invasion forces from enemy actions and will try to intercept ships fleeing from HK, other will block Manila from south, third will hunt south east of Philippines.
I send mini KB on Celebes Sea but they have no luck.

China
No major action for now. I need to regroup before i start offensive. One battle in Pengpu. Heavy enemy losses. I upgraded one fighter unit to Ki-43.


Burma
No actions.

Malaya
Invasion in Kota Barhu. Mostly AF attacks and sweeps. I preparing Mersing invasion but i need to wait for KB. It will take 3-4 days before KB arrive. I send all SS to hunt south of Singapore and around Soerabaja. As i suspect PoW and Repulse disappear. I need to be extra careful when Mersing invasion will start. One kamikaze style action from PoW and Repulse and entire invasion will go down. I will use 2BB 7CA and KB to protect this invasion
One of my xAK hit with torpedo.


Dutch East Indies
Invasion TF are in move. They will arrive in 2-3 days. Priority is to secure Miri and start to repair oil.

SE Pacific
Not many actions Guam, Tarawa and Nauru invasion in move. I will be careful in this area. I suspect that my opponent will send his CV to stop my invasions on Wake and maybe on Tarawa so for now only Small steps.

Home Islands, Manchuria, Korea
no actions. A send few SS on misions and i am regrouping to start my resource convoy system.

Hawaii
Only one action. Midget sub send one torpedo in to Virginia.

Air losses
It is good. I lost only one unlucky Ki-21. Enemy losses between 40-50 airframes.
Lots of planes damages in airfields.

Only one Japanese pilot die today

Ships sunk
[image]local://upfiles/37745/09EC51D58C54435CB1C801F8CED88E0A.jpg[/image]

Many ships in Manila is heavily damaged and i suspect to some of them will sunk and if not they should be easy targets

If any of You have something to say about my AAR i am open for suggestions




Erkki -> RE: Docup (A) vs Koniu (J) (9/10/2011 8:51:32 PM)

I too am slowly but surely leaning on Manila being more worth of it than Pearl... In my PBEM (AARing it here actually) I attacked Pearl for 3 days and lost 120 planes and pilots, 1/4 were Zeros on day 1 alone, while I possibly didnt kill a single ship and only about 50 planes. DD McDonough, some Catalinas and a dozen P-40s don't really justify even the burned fuel, let alone 120 pilots the Japanese can never replace. [:(] While its certainly possible to decimate the USN BB fleet its too much about luck, attacking Manila is probably more likely to give one better results with considerably less risks.

Good luck koniu, I'll be following. [8D]




PaxMondo -> RE: Docup (A) vs Koniu (J) (9/10/2011 10:00:02 PM)

8 DEC 41

KB
Something goes wrong. 50% of planes should go on second Manila port attack. None of them start. Only 2 fighter sweeps over Manila and Clark Field. One squadron of Kate start to Naval Attack mission and sunk two xAKL`s

Philippines
Second wave of AF attacks to eliminate allied air power. Almost 20 planes destroyed on air and ground. Main invasion forces on move.
SC TF north of Manila engage DD`s fleeing from HK. Two DD sunk third runaway with fire on deck
Mini KB was surprised by cargo TF and retreat. I lost my opportunity to sunk CA Houston and CL Boise. Thy are now on south out of range of may planes

China
No major action for now. Few air attacks with moderate effects. I still need few more days to regroup before i start offensive.

Burma
No actions.

Malaya
Kota Barhu captured with minimal loses. Mostly AF attacks and sweeps. Mersing invasion preparations almost over. I will give attack order as soon as KB arrive It will take 3 days.
SS I-122 have luck and place two torpedoes in xAK Zannis Cambanis, he probably will sunk. Bangkok - Kota Barhu rail lane is secured so i will transport few units from central Thailand in strategic mode. There is big chance that SS KXI was sunk by my surface forces.

Dutch East Indies
Invasion TF are in move. They will arrive in 2 days. No more to add for today.

SE Pacific
Not many actions Guam, Tarawa and Nauru invasion still in move in move. I make mistake. Tarawa invasion TF accidentally set on "do not unload" they go to Tarawa and leave it without unloading units. I will repeat invasion in next turn:). I worried about Allied CV`s. This one day of delay in Tarawa can cost me some losses during invasion.

Home Islands, Manchuria, Korea
no actions. Still working on resource convoy system. It should be ready and in move in about 7-9 days

Hawaii
few sub action. One hit AVD McFarland hit by two torpeedo from I-19

In future i will tray to make this AAR less technical. I will still post battle rapports but i will try to give you some maps and more info about my strategy and stuff you want to have.
So if you have wishes what i need to post. You are free to speak.

I thinking about you say.
I will produce more Kate`s. My plan is to build few more Sonias and then switch them for something else. I am planing to stop production of entire Lily line and switch them to Helen production. Planes production is a critical for Japan and i do not want to rush thing.

I know that they are powerful ships, but in my opinion they are not wort of resources spend of them. I like to have 4 CV`s build sooner than two battleship.
This war will be win in CV battles not in old fashion BB vs BB battles.

Enemy TF 2CL and 3DD attack my 3DD south of Singapore. No damage for both sides. In next turn(i need wait for air protection from KB) i will send there CA with few DD to intercept them. I need to very cautious. I do not know where Force Z is.
