el cid again -> RE: RHS Test 8A: Tag Team Chairs Defined (assigned or available) (2/6/2013 8:23:14 PM)

Note: This is a public demonstration tag team game. The Japanese economic foundation turn has been published. The Japanese Chair 1 turn is being created. Aside from the AAR, this game also has a list who get turns and replays from both sides point of view. Here are the Chair definitions:

Test 8A uses the same ALLIED chairs as Test 6A2 does:

Chair 1: Short name US Chair. [Job available if you want it]
Includes US West Coast (which in RHS does NOT include Alaska Command)
US Pacific Fleet
US North Pacific (it starts the game as Senior Naval Officer Kodiak and renames)
US South Pacific (it starts the game as Senior Naval Officer Samoa and renames)
and New Zealand Command (a major US forward base and in order to give NZ a different player from Australia - so it does not get short changed in its defense requirements - which includes many islands in the South Pacific)
The South Pacific (i.e. Tahiti) elements of the Free French

Chair 2: Short name ADBA Chair [Player assigned]
Includes Soviet Union (not at war but managed by the Allies even so)
USAFFE (restricted command)
US Asiatic Fleet (unrestricted command)
NEI (partially restricted command with many restricted units)
US SouthWest Pacific (it starts as Senior Naval Officer SW Pacific and renames)

Chair 3: Short name British Chair [Player assigned]
Includes China, India and Burma command areas.
Includes Canada and Alaska Command - both restricted.
Note Alaska Command is EVERY Location on the mainland,
North Pacific Command is EVERY island location NOT on the main land in the North Pacific area (and North Pacific is under Chair 1 while Alaska Command is under Chair 3 - duplicating the real history). A naval unit on the mainland is under Alaska Command. An air force unit on Kodiak Island is under North Pacific Command. [The game starts with multiple units of this sort both ways]

Test 8A uses DIFFERENT Axis chairs from test 6A2. The number of commands is now larger.

Chair 1: Short Name Nanyo (Pacific Fleet) Chair. [Player assigned]
Includes all major warships operating from Saipan South or East - all the South Pacific - and the major bases of Truk and Kwajalein. Any new bases developed in the area as well. The most important element is the Kiddo Butai - which is structured in two divisions and may divide. The KB remains Chair 1 even if it enters the Indian Ocean or Northern Command areas.
ALSO includes ALL submarines (except under repair) and true raiders (two German eventually, Ichi Maru / Thor, Ni Maru / Michel; and two Japanese - Aikoku Maru and Gokoku Maru, all aircraft equipped, the Germans also have radar) REGARDLESS of area of operations.
In the late war period fights on from the central part of the Home Islands - Kyushu, Shikoku and Honshu except the Northern four hex rows.

Chair 2: Short Name SRA Chair. [Job available if you want it]
Includes Formosa, Hainan Island, Indochina, Thailand South of Bankkok, Malaya,
the NEI, the Philippines, and Australia (when/if invaded in each case).
In the late war period fights on from what is left of this area.

Chair 3: Short Name China Chair. [Job available if you want it]
Includes China, Burma, India theater, and Thailand North of Bangkok (when/if invaded in each case).
In the late war period fights on from what is left of this area.

Chair 4: Short Name Strategic Chair or Economic Chair. [Player assigned]
Includes management of the economy, ship repairs no matter where they are,
escort of convoys and ASW no matter where.
Also manages the Kwangtung Army area and the Northern Command (Hokkaido,
the Kuriles, any part of Eastern Siberia, Alaska, the Aleutians or Canada that becomes germane, and the Northern four hex rows of Honshu.





el cid again -> RE: RHS Test 8A: Startup Sitrep (2/13/2013 7:07:20 PM)

The Japanese start turn was completed about three days ago. The Allies are hard at work entering theirs very carefully.
Right now Chair 2 (the center - where most of the action is) is entering data.

Test 8A will feature a different opening. Early tests were more or less standard openings for AE/WITP. Tests 6A and 7A
featured Allied ships coming out of Pearl Harbor hoping to catch enemy carriers at sea. With some success. Test 8A will
feature implementing one of Kimmels ideas - partial dispersal of the fleet - half in port - half not - but in a defensive posture -
until some sort of target appears - or a strategy of what to do with the fleet is developed? RHS does not require a standard
opening by either side - with a view to creating uncertainty.





el cid again -> RE: RHS Test 8A: First Turn!! (2/21/2013 11:51:57 PM)


This game start is somewhat different from the traditional openings as well as from the openings of Tests 6A and 7A. The United States Fleet neither sat in port nor went to sea in an attempt to intercept possible enemy task forces. Instead, the fleet decided to disperse locally according to one of Adm Kimmels concepts - half the main battle line (with escorts) remained in port; half (also with escorts) went to a different anchorage. Numbers of submarines and small ASW ships went to sea probing in all directions to attempt to find the enemy and develop intelligence. Patrol planes and bombers dispersed somewhat and mainly engaged in search and ASW patrols - also to find the enemy. [The few planes set to attack didn't] Fighters were slightly dispersed and directed to engage in overlapping long and short range combat air patrols: this worked somewhat, but was not decisive. Some transports, tankers and support ships were on routine transit operations, but those with no plausible mission stayed in port. It was a fairly classic case of a situation halfway between peace and war - everything was not determined by tactical combat considerations since there was not yet a war. But precautionary measures were taken - possibly along the lines intended by Gen Marshall's order. There is one "invisible" Allied disaster. The Marine dive bombers slated for Midway flew instead to Wake - and were put on mixed search and attack orders - covered by the fighters USS Enterprise had delivered only days before. They seem not to have flown, and were all lost when Wake fell - somewhat unusually - to a first assault. It must be a stronger than historical unit assaulting to achieve that.
