As if I'm not busy enough I have agreed to do this Japanese AAR in conjuntion with Nomad's own Allied AAR. We are playing CHS 2.03 EXPERIMENTAL A2A with Soviet Navy at start on Andrew Brown's Awesome extended map. WitP Version 1.801

http://www.imageshack.us/

Settings:
Japanese Sub Doctrine - OFF
FOW - ON
Adv. Weather - ON
Allied DC - ON
Hist. 1st Turn - OFF
Vary Setup - OFF
Dec. 7 Suprise - ON
Reinforcements - +/- 15 days

Combat Reports - ON
Auto Sub Ops - OFF
All Facilities NOT set to Expand
Upgrades/Replacements - OFF
1 day turn
PDU - ON

GAMEPLAN
None to speak of really. Since this is test I am loath to go crazy with the 1st turn moves. My Strategy is to get the thing running and avoid any major changes to the preset strategy and production. As I get a feel for the way the game is progressing I will consider alternative strategies and begin fiddling with production.

Along the way I will mote any OoB discrepancies and consider activating the Soviets to see how the new Soviet Naval Air Arm, expanded LCUs, and CD units work.

Generally speaking I play a conservative game and QA all my moves with my trusty BS filter. I avoid gamey tactics using a solid foundation of historical sense, and an ideal of fairplay. We have no house rules to speak of as we hope the CHS and version 1.801 have made the necessary tweaks such that they are no longer necessary.

One thing Nomad and I agree on is that any Amphibious operation where territory is taken MUST be properly supported. (i.e Land, Sea, Air)

The Opening Salvos:

Dec 7th 1941, the combined forces of the Imperial Japanese Army and Navy have launched their long awaited attack against
the meddling Western Powers. The Greater Asian Co-prosperity Sphere will soon be a reality.



The SS S-39 departs Manila Bay destined
to go down in the historybooks as the
vessel that started WWII in the Pacific


It seems ironic then that the first strike of the War be made by…USS S-39! Yes unbeknownst to the Imperial Japanese Navy,
word of the impending invasion of the Phillipines was somehow leaked to the Skipper of this unassuming boat.
In the wee hours of the morning of 8 Dec 1941(West of the International Dateline) the S-39 finds itself surrounded by a
Japanese Amphibious force headed directly toward Mindanao.


What would you do?




ASW attack at 45,55

Japanese Ships
DD Suzukaze
DD Umikaze
DD Kawakaze
DD Yamakaze
DD Tokitsukaze
DD Yukikaze
CL Nagara

Allied Ships
SS S-39, hits 1

Sub attack at 45,55

Japanese Ships
AK Shinano Maru, Torpedo hits 1, on fire
PC Showa Maru #5
PC Showa Maru #3
PC Nichi Maru #1
PC Gamitsu Maru #1
PG Saiko Maru
PG Edo Maru
MSW Takasago Maru
MSW Ataka Maru

Allied Ships
SS S-39, hits 3, on fire

Japanese ground losses:
52 casualties reported

Needless to say the mighty Imperial Navy slowed not a whit as this little speedbump was hardly even noticed.
The last thing the Captain of the Gamitsu Maru #1 reported was sighting an oil slick and the eerie flotsam
associated with a dead Submarine.

I'm curious to see what the new CHS looks like. Going to wait until the shakedown CHS cruise is over then I'm going to download it and make a non respawn version. I'm terribly gun shy of the editor now however, after having been violated by its' user friendlyliness in the past.

I'm glad to see someone starting up as I await version 2.04 to get my two PBEM games as the Allies started. I like the looks of this game and the map a lot after playing stock for 1 1/2 years. Hopefully, my learning curve will not be so great.

Question: Any kind of house rule for Jap subs or KB coming into the channels that lead to Panama and/or Middle East??

I'm hoping like hell my opponent Bill W will send his subs or KB into the channels because contrary to what one may think, as long as you keep sufficient escorts around your convoys and sufficient airpower in the Mid East and Panama (like was done historically) the risks to the Japanese player outweigh any gains...can't destroy the docks for example.

The Daylight hours:

Unaware of the premature start of hostilities off the coast of Mindanao earlier in the morning, Air Units of the Imperial Japanese Naval Air Forces lift off from Saigon for Singapore. These elite aviators have been waiting patiently for the opportunity to show the west just how underestimated they have been. It is time to strike and strike hard!


Nells Leaving Indo-China are cheered by hopeful maintainers

The Raid was executed flawlessly, acheiving total suprise and catching the RAF fighter units flat-footed. Only 10 inferior Brewster Buffaloes mustered enough moxy to rise to the defense of Britain's Jewel of the East. Through no fault of their own the crews of the strike force produced results that were less than desirable. A broken layer at 6,000 feet made target acquisition and identification difficult. Though 28 aircraft recieved damage, most of it was due to heavy flak in the target area and the need to drop altitude for target Acq.



Reported markings on the Buffs confirm
453 Sqdn was involved in the interception

Attack on Clark Field:

Finding more favorable weather in the Phillipines, the Second large raid of the day produced wonderful results! The reaction of the Americans to the well coordinated and unexpected strike on Clark Field is no more suprising than the sloth exhibited by their long ailing allies the British. How would the americans say...."Birds of a feather?"


Though pitiful, the crews of the 22nd Air Flotilla almost
rooted the Philipino interceptors on...

The Aftermath, Clark Burns

The Big Show:
All of Japan's hopes and dreams of equality among the old world powers rested on the outcome of this most important of the three pronged attack on the West. in the early morning hours of 7 December the Air units of the Kido Butai performed a feat that can only be described as a "Divine Wind" to those who did not witness it first hand. Results were spectacular, and the months of planning and training invested by our heroic aviators are to be commended, may this Divine Wind continue to rage in our favor...

Totals for the day. Not a great day for Air combat due to the suprise factor, but good to see Sakai and Ota get on the board early. With a little luck the damage caused at Pearl will tell. Hoping that a couple more BBs founder in the harbor. Would help make the higher than historical losses to KB easier to take. Man that was tough to watch... Should see more sinkings on turn 2 elsewhere on the map...

Are you happy now Ron?...ye of little faith!

Yay! Its off the ground!

Okay, I will be a bit critical - maybe just a matter of taste, but I don't need to see all those pastes from the combat reports. You can always just attach it (but not embed) for those who want to read it. My 2 cents, feel free to ignore me.

The Raid was executed flawlessly, acheiving total suprise and catching the RAF fighter units flat-footed. Only 10 inferior Brewster Buffaloes mustered enough moxy to rise to the defense of Britain's Jewel of the East. Through no fault of their own the crews of the strike force produced results that were less than desirable. A broken layer at 6,000 feet made target acquisition and identification difficult. Though 28 aircraft recieved damage, most of it was due to heavy flak in the target area and the need to drop altitude for target Acq.

I don't know AB...they were high, but whose to say I just didn't get a bad AAA roll? I would be concerned if my losses were the lower limit of a range of losses that were all too high, but what if mine are just the upper limit of the bell curve?

Maybe we need a bigger sample?

Is this CHS the NikMod augmented AA one? I don't like the AA modifications at all.

AAA was not touched as far as I know. AB, would be the one to confirm this.

Dec 8, 1941:

A relatively quiet second day to the war. Most of the Action occurs in the wee morning hours of the 8th as ABDA forces attempt to stall the inevitable. PT's, DD's, and the USS Houston all desperatley hurl themselves into the fray with seeming disregard to sound naval doctrine or their own well being.

The Kido Butai retires from Pearl to lick it's wounds, and begins prepping for it's next assignment. Around the Map Imperial Japanese Army and Special Naval landing forces pour onto beachheads. Guam and Vigan fall. ASW task forces are being detailed to patrol coastal areas near our landings to battle the inevitable counterattacks from submarines, like so many moths to a flame...

Reinforcements are enroute to Wake to bolster the tattered SNLF that holds on by a thread. Obviously Imperial planners did not forsee the resolve of this tiny atoll's USMC defenders. Perhaps "sloth" does not characterize ALL American services...?

Several move have been made to reinforce and make use of newly won Airfields. This will lead to less Aerial action in the next day or so as Morale and Fatigue become daily concerns.

Plans are underway for the second phase of our opening battleplan, and the order has been given to select infantry units to begin embarkation and prepare to ship out. As soon as the proper escorts have been freed up from other endeavors, other areas of the SRA will feel the humiliation already cast upon the Americans at Pearl and in the PI, and the Brits in Malaysia.

The Last Ride of the Galloping Ghost



The USS Houston Seen here returning to Manila Bay Pre-war, is the Centerpoint of the US Far East Fleet


Captain's Report 8DEC41, 0426
Subj: Night action in Defense of Legaspi landing
Loc: 15nm SSE of Legaspi

-0314 Captain of Minegumo flashes "Possible enemy contact sighted bearing 215 True, 5,000 yds"

-0315 General Quarters

-0317 Order formation Turn to 210 True and assume Line ahead formation; prepare for Long Lance attack.

-0320 Enemy Cruiser sighted Bearing 225 true 4,000yds

-0321 Flash "Execute Long Lance, offest 180 true"...

With rehearsed precision, the ships of Captain Satsumoto's Escort group swing their rudders to port and assume 180 attack axis from which to launch their deadly attack. The range closes rapidly and at 4,000 yds, torpedo mount crews let fly their 24in Type 93 Torpedos.

It is apparent that their quarry is not aware of its peril, as it makes not effort to avoid the incoming fish. Gun Batteries are ordered to hold fire so as not to spook the enemy into evasive maneuvers, the fish swim on.

"No Escorts sighted!" Reports the bridge lookout

Captain Satsumoto's astonishment is hidden in dim lighting of the Nagara's bridge. "A lone Samurai then...?"

It seems the battle will be over sooner than one would expect, until at the last moment the enemy Cruiser heels hard to starboard and and opens up with her forward batteries. All hopes of an early victory fade, and the order to open fire is passed.

No high order detonations are seen as the Torpedo officer calls out "impact!" And stops his watch. It is going to be a long fight...




Capt. Satsumoto's Light Cruiser Nagara and her Escorts hurl 5in shells at the US Heavy Cruiser. Round after round strike home like so many hammer blows, but lack the penetrating power to deliver the desired effect. When the 8in guns of the now identifed USS Houston open up the story is drastically different. The first to feel the wrath of the Galloping Ghost is the Destroyer Yamakaze. A salvo of 8in Shells rip into her thin hull and immediate produce fires and belching smoke, the proud ship immediately slows and heels to port.

Meanwhile other ships contiue to loose torpedoes as the behemoth that has wandered into their midst deftly evades. The only hope for victory lies in a lucky hit, 5in guns are no match for this belt armor.

Committed to the fight both sides close to 2,000 yds. 5 & 8in shells cross in the night and Torpedos are flung at the Ghost who seems to realize it's newfound advantage...then without warning the night sky is illuminated by what can only be a high order detonation of a type 93 Torpedo. Success! The tables turn yet again, the ghost slows and the new hunter becomes the hunted once again.

Satsumoto orders the attack to be pressed home, with the Galloping Ghost slowing to a meager trot, it is no time to hesitate...

Is this an 'open' AAR or is Nomad off limits here?
