Allied max defense: 38 - adjusted defense: 616 Can someone explain how this base force can have it's AV adjusted so high.


9 Forts - can triple the AV (38 x 3)= 114
100% prep can double it again = 228
HQ can double again = 458, and a second HQ could increase it again
Terrain could put it up to 4 x as much (though i doubt Petropavlovsk is a city hex) = 1832... so, yes, a well prepped, well supplied unit could easily have 16 x the AV (which this unit does)... i am guessing 100% prep (2x), 4 forts (~2x), HQs (2 or 3x), and terrain...

Also, the leader's Land Warfare balance can effect things... supply can effect downwards, and i've also wondered if OVERSUPPLY can help (though i've not seen any studies on this.)

As for the fort going back up - i am guessing the fort was something at 99% constructed, and a fort level increased between days.

Good news - A note of congratulations was recieved from Adolf today saying thank you for the distraction of the Russian forces. His upcomming offensive is now sure to succeed.

Today we overran Irkutsk and Russian industry in the urals is now ripe for the taking.

Well what a day see the screen shot of the losses below.

I don't want to come accross sounding negative like Castor Troy or Ron S but I am pretty gutted with myself and this game at the moment. There is nothing I can do except pull back out of 14 hex range. If I spread out like I did a few turns ago Tom attacks one base at a time, if I bunch for a strong stand it still doesn't work. Again the problem is the Allies know where the Jap has placed thier aircraft and the Jap only get 50% max cap. And all the time Tom attacks and takes bases at will in the DEI and PNG using barges, which are free and I can't attack.

Ground combat at Iman And here it is - absoulutely amazed at the adjusted AV of both sides

Japanese Deliberate attack

Attacking force 961561 troops, 10203 guns, 2777 vehicles, Assault Value = 19568

Defending force 182444 troops, 1338 guns, 198 vehicles, Assault Value = 3833

Japanese engineers reduce fortifications to 8 These guys are the heroes of the day they reduced the forts so the Allies missed out on the 9 fort multipler (x3 I think)

Japanese max assault: 19748 - adjusted assault: 8673

Allied max defense: 3286 - adjusted defense: 1879 I have done two probe attacks the first the AV was 47000 and the next 16700. I must have used up the Allies supplies with those two probes because the AV is terrible for a Mountain hex with 8 forts.

Japanese assault odds: 4 to 1 (fort level 8) I wish I shocked attacked now - next time

Japanese Assault reduces fortifications to 8


Japanese ground losses:
38874 casualties reported I knew it was going to be painful

It took a lot of guts to shock attack - The forts where at level 7 and in the mountains with 250k men. The emperor Gordo-san ordered the commanders of the CAA and KAA to attack. This inspired order resulted in 2500 points

This concludes Operation Bear Trap, now what to do with 1 million men

The emperor received a telegram from Adolf sending his congrats. With the Armee in the West approaching the Urals and the Russian industry under attack from Jap bombers, Mr Stalin offered an unconditional surrender. What was started by Russia as an act of agression was ended by the Jap in 3 and half month. Not bad at all.
