Hey aigan mr. DivePac88, In my hummel opinion, Japan has no problem with Aircraft Quantety, I have thousends of engines in my pool, and more then 1000 planes of any Fighter or Bomber aircraft type i use in the pool. I also have over 100 000 HI in the Pool, a very developed Ship Industry and a Good Armaments and Vheacle Industry. I did capture India, something who i think was neccesary to support this with more HI as well as Resourses. The Air Industry are turned to OFF at present due to overproduction of planes, I can produse 700 Fighters pr month of any Fighter Type i use, and can also produse 500 Bombers pr month of any Bomber type i use. Since i have over 1000 in the pool of any type i use, i dont realy need to ceap production on. The Same counts for Armament industry, its also OFF due to Overproduction, have large quantety in the Pool. When it comes to Ship Production its also developed and are now still undergoing development.
The Positive with making lare production abiletys, is that you only need to run production of xxx for a limited amount of time, this enables you to save HI, or to not consume more HI then you need. Its very hard to calculate HI, but i think its very very very important to do it prior to game start, so you have a well defined and detaild Indistrual plan before you start doing anything. The Resourses is what that can cause the problem, so invade India if you intend to stick arround untill 47.
Japan has a insanely large army, and can IMHO safely (over time) pull out (transfer via PP) a good 10 Divitions from China, and this is not realy many, because China Area Army gets alot of Full Divitions in Reinforcements also, it can also pull out whole Aviation Regiments from China. Btw im playing Big. B, who deals with the China District Army system, I think it simulates it pritty good, this also limist the Chinese Offencive Capabilety, and by making a well planned defence structure with Mobile Reaction Forces and a strong Point Defence System, the combined Defence of China can be sorted out faily easy i think anyways.
So well point being, Japan is actualy a very stong nation, with huge capebiletys, IMHO the only problem with Japan is the Pilot quantety.
This is why i go for arround 50% of the airforce as "Very Skilled", and the other 50% as "Normal Skill" Airforce.
Aigan this is only my personal preferences, im sure there is many many other ways of doing it.
