I've found three Sally units at Kota Bhuaru ( however you spell it ) and I've set them up to do airfield attacks at Singapore and hopefully
the Oscars nearer Singapore will escort and all will proceed according to plan. Then once the airfield is neutralized then the Sally's
will be switched to ground attack and we'll start the reduction of Singapore. Shouldn't take more than a couple of months I figure. Give
or take a month.

Okie dokie it's Sunday 23:08 pm and I've just mailed the moves to Jim. Let's see what kind of turn around I get this time. He's usually pretty fast. We'll see.

EDIT: He repied with his moves Monday at 01:24 am.....that's about 2.25 hours.......not too shabby. Thanks Jim.




larryfulkerson -> RE: Fulkerson vs Moore 16Feb42 (10/29/2012 7:42:08 AM)

Here's two TK's that I lost track of and only discovered just now that I have let them get too close to Singapore and the Allied air power
there. It only takes one good raid to sink both my TK's so I'm surprised to find them that close to Singapore. I've got her on a route to
take her hopefully further away from the Allied airfields and into relative safety. I'm finding fubars like that all over the map. No wonder
I lose at games. I've got to pay more attention to detail(s). Or at least more than Jim is. I figure that I've got to pay at least as much
attention to detail as Jim is in order to win....so if I pay more attention to detail maybe I'll pull a rabbit out of a hat.

This is the aircraft / airfield situation in the immediate Singapore area. I have some Betty's north of this image that can reach Singers
as well as some Sally's that have the Singers airport as their next target. Other than that.....I can see from this image that I need to get
some engineers into Sumatra and Malaya to build some more fighter fields in order for me to move the fighters closer to Singers. After
I've defeated all the fighters at Singers and in Sumatra I'll see if I can't get these guys transfered to other areas where they are badly
needed.

I've been giving some thought to how I ought to be able to use the shorter-ranged AK's to convey resources too and I think I may have a
plan. From Tokyo I'll have them go to the next big port south, and from there to the next big port, etc. following the island chains and
using whatever bases / airfields I already have existing and build some more airfields to park the planes on and I'm figuring I have about
two months worth of work to do to the existing airfields and maybe 6 months of creating some new ones to the path to and from Tokyo.
I'll have to figure out what planes to park where and what ports to expand starting now and so on. Here's a first rough draft of the
path(s).

larryfulkerson -> RE: Fulkerson vs Moore 16Feb42 (10/29/2012 9:38:47 AM)

I've got a TF headed for Kendari w/ fuel because the fuel level is like 926 or something but now that I think about it Makassar is the
place where all the ships are going to go for resources. So I ought to be fueling up Makassar starting soon, so I need to remember
to make the next stop on this TF's route to be Makassar and so to remind me I changed the TF name field to say "Makassar next" and
also I changed the home base to Makassar. I just need to remember what the TF name field means and unload only for about a day
at Kendari 'cause the rest is needed in Makassar. Hey I could make a computer controlled route out of Balikpapan to Makassar w/ fuel.
What a good idea....I'll see if I can get it set up and working and report back to you guys.

larryfulkerson -> RE: Fulkerson vs Moore 16Feb42 (10/29/2012 9:51:39 AM)

I have pulled too many resources out of Hong Kong too quickly and now it's starting to bite me in the ass. There's a resource center at
Hong Kong but it's supplying only 1200 resources per day and the requirements of a heavy industry and a light industry are something
like 4920 resources per day, so Hong Kong will loose the services of it's Heavy and Light Industries unless and until I get some more
resources to Hong Kong. D'oh. So it's Hong Kong that needs resources and not just the home islands. And I'd rather not get the HI
and LI closed down because they are also a source of supply and China needs that in spades.

Okay.......it's now Monday 08:27 and I'm in possession of Jim's moves. Here's some of the lastest Tracker alerts:

larryfulkerson -> RE: Fulkerson vs Moore 17Feb42 (10/29/2012 4:51:04 PM)

Oh, and by the way, before I forget to tell you, I found a bunch of Land Combat Units in Moulmein and thought I'd send most of it to Pegu.
That way I can threaten Rangoon etc. I'm guessing maybe the AVG is based in Rangoon. They regularly sweep my base of Nate's and
chew them up. I may have to stand down the Nate's. As soon as the fighters are gone from Singapore I plan to move the Oscar's up to
help out with the reduction of Rangoon. I guess I'd better start looking around for some AF dudes to support the planes and start them
moving to Pegu etc.

larryfulkerson -> RE: Fulkerson vs Moore 17Feb42 (10/29/2012 4:54:30 PM)

Here's the latest Tracker economic chart. I've still got a lot of Oil Centers, Refineries, HI, etc. that aren't producing and I guess I ought to
take a look at that to see why or maybe fix it somehow. I'll get back to you on my discoveries in this reguard.

larryfulkerson -> RE: Fulkerson vs Moore 17Feb42 (10/29/2012 5:02:40 PM)

Here's the resource history of the Japanese Home Islands. The resources from out in the field are starting to reach Japan but the oil
hasn't yet. I'll have to see how many convoys are headed for Tokyo and see how many have oil in them. Would be good to know.
Resources are almost the same as the beginning of the war. That's a good sign. I'm still looking forward to the time when I'll have run
all my close resource sources out of resources and will have to take a look around to see who else has resources to donate. Like
Ocean Island and Makassar and places I've not heard of yet.

larryfulkerson -> RE: Fulkerson vs Moore 17Feb42 (10/29/2012 5:24:38 PM)

Here's a list of all the bases where I need some repairs to take place yet. Miri is the biggest project so far. These are the bases where I
need some engineers the most advantageously. I'll have to take a look at which bases these are and get some engineers to them. Or at
least make sure they have some eventually.

larryfulkerson -> RE: Fulkerson vs Moore 17Feb42 (10/29/2012 5:59:42 PM)

There was an earlier question by a reader about the status of the airfield at Port Moresby and I was working on Rob's moves at the time
and couldn't check. Well, now I'm working on Jim's moves and have the situation in front of me. Port Moresby appears to be an
operational level 3 airfield without any Allied planes there. Jim has evacuated all his fighters / bombers from Port Moresby back to OZ
I'm guessing. I've got my Betty's doing ground pounding and there's some Tina's that are flying in some supply but other than that the
air war looks to be won in that segment of the world. If and when I ever do capture PM I'm going to bring in the big guns ( bombers ) and
see it I can't reach OZ with them.

larryfulkerson -> RE: Fulkerson vs Moore 17Feb42 (10/29/2012 6:25:05 PM)

I have moved a group of Nell's to Koepang where they are in range of the Allied airfield at Darwin. I'm going to start them on a bombing
campaign to shut down the airports in the northernmost bases of OZ. That way I can move my transports toward their invasion targets
without having to worry so much about Allied air power. If and when I decide to invade.

larryfulkerson -> RE: Fulkerson vs Moore 17Feb42 (10/29/2012 6:39:12 PM)

That stack of Allied CV's looks like it's trying to get away. I'm going to move my stack of CV's even closer to the Allied stack to try to be in
range on the morning of tomorrow and within air strike range of the Allied stack hopefully. Maybe I'll get some more Allied ships yet,
maybe even some CV's.

Oh, wait........I've completely forgotten to do the combat results. Stay tuned for those too.

Hi, I follow your adventure and...wow, in 15th febrary you are everywhere in the globe!
But there's my question: I see you use some Betty with ASW 100% (what altitude?)...it works?
they hit any sub? The ASW setting is one of my great problem. Banzai!

edit: if you put a pair of BB in your AirCombatTF, they offer a very good AA and they
attract torpedoes.




larryfulkerson -> RE: Fulkerson vs Moore 17Feb42 (10/29/2012 6:53:46 PM)

The first thing that happened last night was this collision between my stack of CV's and the Allied stack of boats;. It happened in the
hex indicated and now, the next day, the combatants are in different hexes headed SE, the Allies probably at full-speed, and me following
to try to catch them in my air power net.

Thanks for following my little adventure. It's a blast so far. I may not be exactly everywhere in the globe but I'm trying to grab what I
can while I still can.

I've put them on 1K feet ASL and so far there's been reports of hits in the operational report but that's probably just FOW.

I'm not sure I've ever gotten any hits but I'm watching and waiting.

There's been nothing but reports of hits and nothing in the sunk ships list.

I like that idea a lot. Thanks for the tip.




cohimbra -> RE: Fulkerson vs Moore 17Feb42 (10/29/2012 7:08:48 PM)

Maybe you can set ASW at 60/80% (the 60/80% of squadron search for sub, then the
20/40% flight to attack them)...well, in any case I give a try in my pbem and see
what happen.




larryfulkerson -> RE: Fulkerson vs Moore 17Feb42 (10/29/2012 7:08:51 PM)

And then a little on toward the morning this night-time contest took place:

And then there was this naval bombardment of Midway. I see where a lot of planes got damaged but nothing important got destroyed.
Except for some Allied ground combat unit losses.

larryfulkerson -> RE: Fulkerson vs Moore 17Feb42 (10/29/2012 7:27:41 PM)

Remember those troops at Gasmata that I so carefully had embark the AK parked in the harbour so I could evacuate them to Rabaul?
An AA unit and some INF troops. Well, I forgot to specify "do not unload" and they started to unload last night and now the base is
enemy and my troops are back in the thick of things. So I'm going to leave them there to hold the fort down ( at least they have some
supplies at Gasmata ) and just move the bigger unit from Rabaul to Gasmata to take care of business and move the smaller unit to
Rabaul as a placeholder for now.

larryfulkerson -> RE: Fulkerson vs Moore 17Feb42 (10/29/2012 7:31:15 PM)

And then the next thing that happened was that the surface skimmers got into it again at Midway. Some more Allied wreckage.

larryfulkerson -> RE: Fulkerson vs Moore 17Feb42 (10/29/2012 7:37:01 PM)

I don't remember ever taking Gorontalo from the Allies. I'm guessing I forgot to invade there and Jim has been
hanging onto it all this time. Either that or I did take it then moved the INF out of there and now Jim has moved
a unit from somewhere else and taken it back. Either way I need to do something about it.

larryfulkerson -> RE: Fulkerson vs Moore 17Feb42 (10/29/2012 7:40:59 PM)

And then there was a sweep of Midway by my Zero's and I must say I'm a little disappointed in the performance of my Zero's. I'm thinking
I should have gotten one Wildcat at least. But NNNNNOOoooooooo. Not even one. D'oh.
