However, the more i think of it, the more i don't "like" the overall idea. Convoys bringing oil and fuel from the SRA were one of the most important assets (and targets!) in the whole conflict...taking them out of the equation really seems strange to me...and it takes away a lot of "flavour" of the game.
Also i don't think it's fair towards the allied opponent... i remember playing with Rader the frustration i had not to be able to find any convoy...he probably used this strategy to bring everything to Fusan...

It shouldn't be possible in this game. IRL it wasn't possible, there was no roads, railroads and capacity.

So I won't even try to use it. IMO it's just wrong.

It was possible, they were doing it by wars end and the "roads"* existed then.


No. We are not talking about rice cakes, rifle ammo and spare parts. Japan needed 12000 tons of crude oil/fuel each day. Not even millions of chinese can help you transport thousands of tons of crude oil each.

IRL tanker were the only way to transport notable amount of crude oil/fuel. Unfortunately game does have different reality.

Opinions do vary ... again.


Still what's nice is that the game allows everyone to play their reality. [;)]
