Thank you very much.

This is an area in which I have considerable interest and have done some research myself.

Pre-war the 1st "Regular" Division consisted of two organized units - a single infantry battalion and one troop of cavalry - stationed in Manila and used as ceremonial troops. All the rest of the regular army was dispersed in training units, depots, and HQ detachments.

Until the legal limit on Philippine Scouts was expanded in 1940, the small garrisons at Baguio and Zamboanga were formed from a battalion of the 45th Infantry (PS). With the increased size (to 12,000 if memory serves), these four companies were detachd from the 45th and used to form the 43rd Infanty (PS). A new battalion was formed to bring the 45th up to strength - consolidated around Manila.

The mini "Battalion" HQs were established, with companies A and B at Baguio and companies C and D at Zamboanga.

The Baguio unit was fragmented, with most of the unit attempting to withdraw with Col. Horan and the rest joining Troop C of the 26th Cavalry to become guerillas. Very few of Col Horan's detachment made it to Bataan. Most were lost or melted away into the jungle - many resurfacing later in guerilla units.

The Zamboanga unit was attached to the 101st Division - first as advisors at various levels and later consolidated as (I believe) a component of the 102nd Division. A personal memoir of one of the company commanders - (then) Captain John H. McGee - details most of this.

Don,

What is tough to track is the merry-go-round of commanders as Filipino officers were in many cases replaced by their instructor advisors. Both the 21st and 41st Divisions (Capinpin and Lim) were officered by all Filipinos, as was the 1st Regular Division (in name only). Right now I am working on a 47 page chapter that includes an analysis of what occurred pre-Bataan by comparing actual events with the Philippine War Plan Orange 3 (which we have a complete copy of here at work). Both WPO - 3 and MacArthur's plan stressed defending the beaches. The former, however, is a bit more realistic in predicting that a delaying action would eventually result. My opinion is that if MacArthur had not tinkered with Grunert's plan, things might have gone a little better in the opening days because the beaches would have been defended by more American troops (with better leadership, weapons, and training). Folks tend to foget that Philippine Army Divisions were even smaller than the understrength Philippine Division. But then again losing your whole air force and thereafter fighting under conditions of enemy air supremacy is something that MacArthur and WPO - 3 did not anticipate. We also have the Japanese history and from reading it they had some big problems (caused by weather and sea conditions) in Lingayen Gulf.

I have modded the regular scenario with an "Enchanced Philippines" version with more weapons, equipment for the PA and Philippine Department (but not too much) and better leadership values for the US officers who commanded Philippine Reserve Divisions. Looking at what they accomplished, most did fairly well in a very stressful situation. I also plan to build upon my "Enhanced Philippines" by beefing up the Brits in Malaya (a bit more airpower) and Dutch in NEI (same - more planes purchased from the US arrive sooner) in addition to redeploying the British forces in Northern Malaya and US forces on Luzon IAW WPO - 3.

Best,

Mark R.

Andy Mac,

I noticed some things with strategic Road movement in both Scenario 1 and the Babes scenarios.

As you know, some Allied nations' ground units can do Strategic OpMode movement along Main Roads. I've noticed that in Scenario 1, USMC units can not do so. I'm pretty sure that's an error. In Babes, US Navy units can not do so (but they can in Scenario 1, so I'm pretty sure that's an error in babes.

I figure the best thing is to check with you on which nations are supposed to have this ability (Strategic OpMode movement on Main Roads). Do you have a list of which Allied nations are supposed to have this ability? There is no such list in the manual.

It’s not anything in the scenarios. Babes is working just fine for me and the Babes versions available on the website haven’t changed for months. And scenario 1 hasen’t changed for two years.

There is an instability in the executable program somewhere. It used to be a nationality check with some exclusions. Side 1: Allies, and Nationality Type: All, except 12-Chinese, 14-Indian, 15-Commonwealth, and I forget about 16-Philippines. There was another check having to do with China area.

This should go to michaelm on the tech support forum.

I sent you a PM too.

Matt

Thanks! I figured I would get a list from Andy and then test both Scen 1 and Babes then post the results, but you are ahead of me with that knowledge. I'll get it to Michael.

Andy,

Here is Michael's reply about the code. Can you verify this is as designed - I always thought it included all American units (which would add USMC and USN to the list below) and did not include India?

NAT_USA
NAT_AUS
NAT_NZ
NAT_BRIT
NAT_IND
NAT_CAN

Been that way since start.

Not sure if this is the right place or if it has been reported, but it looks like the 81mm (M) Haftrack ID#937 upgrades to a device 468 which is not used it has a 99/99 availability date.

Found something interesting doing some research, and I realized I never saw it in the Allied OOB. Also did a forum search and found no reference. 1st Filipino Infantry Regiment (Seperate) was a US Army infantry regiment which departed CA in Apr 44, arrived New Guinea several weeks later, and took part in (you guessed it) the Phillipines campaign, including Leyte and Samar. Has anyone noticed the lack of inclusion of this unit within the OOB? Was it not included for some reason? Just curious. Thanks in advance for any responses.

I have the 1st Filipino in the Dec 8 Full campaign. It is not in the DaBigBabes 7 Dec start game I'm playing. So I think it depends on the scenario author.

rjopel, Blackhorse, thanks for the responses. Just goes to show one should look at the reinforcements before relying on one's game memory. I guess it's like most IT techs when asked why someone's monitor is blank - "Did you turn it on or plug it in?" I'll crawl back under my rock in shame now

Device 1137 90mm M2 DP Gun have pool of 50, but it begins production at 4305, and is upgrade for 1136 90mm M1A1 AA Gun, which have pool of 0.

Those pools probably should be exchanged.

Logically, I can see why one would think that, but the in-game pools are correct.

The "pool" for the early-model M1A1 AA is a "convoy" unit that arrives on July 1, 1942, then disbands. The "convoy" includes 100 of the heavy anti-aircraft guns.

Don think so. I bet it special action.
As i see some japan naval guns had lower range then had. It going from wrong reports which based on some old type gun mounts and wrong-crossing guns of same caliber.

Scenario 2
Many Armored Cars have wrong range.
For example
Alvis-Straussler Armoured Car have range 2!!!! Same as SU-85/100/122 or T-34/85. So how MG have same range like 85-100-122mm AT gun????
Vickers power?
Many examples....

Hmm,

Iดm not familiar with the armoured car mentioned here, but generally spoken heavy MGs could indeed fire at long ranges. F.e. the german MG-42 (when mounted on a tripod as a heavy MG) was able to fire at ranges up to 2200m, thus overshooting own forces. The bullets reached heights of more than 30m in flight. By using MGs like this they could place MG fire f.e. 400m ahead of your own attacking infantry.
