OK Guys you may like this or not I will try to post a few turns every chance I get

This is me v the AI its March 1943 on the enhanced Japan Scenario - I stepped into an AI v AI game about a month ago as the allies and am currently reorganising ready for a counteroffensive.

Situation General Allied AI whom I am replacing faced a difficult situation - the Japanese had invaded all of Western Australia and captured Darwin in the North, PM is in Japanese hands and the Japanese advance is all the way south to teh Marquesas

The allies have lost 4 Carriers and only have 2 operational carriers left.

SEAC is rebuilding but is not ready for offensive operations yet
SWPAC I am short of carrier assets - the allied AI recaptured Lunga and Munda

The Japanese attack on North Australia was stopped by the militia 2nd Australian Div at the battle of Katherine but at a huge cost with the loss of the port I cannot ship in more troops and sustain them so what I have on scene is pretty much all I will get unless I bring in ships and those a rew in short supply.

We pick up the action as the first of my plans begins to come into action

The rested and recovered 2nd Aus Div is on the attack only to discover I waited to long and the Japanese have skipped town

In parrallel an Armoured Car Regt advanced on the Western Rail Head at Kalgoorlie in a recon in force only to discover the Japanese have NOT abandoned Western Australia

The recon in force has a mix of Humbar US made M3A1's and AC1VP armoured cars and

Lastly I am staging a major naval invasion of PM - and well it didnt go to well covering B17's out of Australai were grounded by weather and wave after wave of Japanese bmbers just reduced the US pacific Fleet by another flat top - I knew I shoulda waited.....

The Militia men of the 2nd Australian Div got the job done and Darwin is recaptured - at least thats how I would be spinning it - the truth is that a home guard detachment could have done the job.

The failure of my recon in force to secure the railhead gives me a tricky problem in Western Australia - I control a small port which I could bring in more troops but the reality is unless I am willing to stage a major reinvasion of Western Australia Kalgoorlie rail junction is vital.

I have the II Aus Corps with 7th AIF Div, and 2 Armoured/Motorised Bdes sitting at Port Augusta but without that rail head I cannot sustain them easily nor deploy them quickly.

You may have noticed all the Japanese raids on India.

I am short of Fighters in India I need to cover various ports and AF's in my rear until I can force the Japanese AF back a bit out of range.

But utnil I can do that I cannot concentrate enough fighters to push them back - chicken and egg story I am setting up an ambush with 221 Gp Fighters and a few 10th USAAF Sqns but it will take a few days to get ready.

All three of the Assaulting Divisions are ashore at PM but Saratoga as the only flat top in the USN at present is out of AA ammo and has 1 operational fighter - no choice she has to pull back leaving those amphibs exposed.....

This next turn is going to hurt - a LOT...

OK the good news and the bad news....

I landed three Divisions at PM all ready and 100% prepped and walked into 2+ Divs of dug in Japanese troops - I knew I shoulda spent more time on recon...

Only good news is it looks like the Japanese bomber AF's were partially closed and thsoe that did launch were feeling the effect of the day befores battle.

Looks like I have a significant Arty Advantage as well but the battle of PM will be tough.

They have been bombed for a while and my troops are 100% prepped so I will try an attack but I am not hopefull

The biggest issue I have as the allies at present is shipping finding enough hulls to shift troops and supply forward is a real stuggle

How long does it take to resolve a day's orders now?  Also, will there be a way to set the various combat result screens to show the info on a delay, then move on to the next one?  It appears that the number of "clicks" to move from one screen to another is going to vastly increase, which is one of my biggest peeves with WitP.  I hope there's a setting that will allow me to just start the turn and walk away from it, and the program will execute all the usual sub/air/asw attacks without needing a 'click' to move to the next one.  I can always look at the AAR if there was something unusual that took place.

OK decision made I am going to try and stage 3rd Motor Bde into that small port and use it to secure the rail head.

An attack has been ordered at PM

XV Corps of the Indian Army is ordered to begin operations against Cox Bazaar I need to kick the Japanese out of these forward bases to allow me to free up rear areas.

In other news The solomons campaign stalled the AI was doing quitre well but when I took over I cannot abide messy battlefieds with fragments all over the place (the AI is infinite and can manage them - I aint and cannot)

I like a tidy rear area with plenty of supplies to enable exploitation and properly prepared troops

So I stalled the shoestring offensive and am presently reorganising Lunga and Munda are both still shut and I have no fighters avaialbel to forward deploy given the lack of carriers.

I have 8 CVE's at PH at present buyt I am saving them for the re invasion of Canton Island I need to conserve my carrier assets until the Essex's start arriving

I have all animations off and minimum delay and it takes about 4 minutes per day

As I am playing 3 day turns that takes me 10 - 12 minutes - its ruinning in the background as I type this

I am a phillistine I never really watch the replays so the new art is kinda wasted on me - its very pretty though

Thanks for the AAR, Andy. I've got a couple of questions:
1) At PM the Japanese have been doing the bombarding and have taken more (sometimes MANY more) casualties than the Allies every day but one. Does the game assume counterbattery fire or what?

2) Can you explain what the differences are in the CAP report? I know what the words mean but not the context.

3) Describe what is happening with ship manouvering, please. Is EV = evasion? Is a higher number better? Why does or how does a ship "manouver well"? Sorry if these have been asked before but I've gotten so far behind on the AE threads I don't know where to start.

Thanks, again
Greg

Well the Arty allotment to the US Divs and eventhe CW ones are substantial and they are at more or less full strength

so 200+ tubes plus 200+ Morters of 3" or 81mm calibre

The Japanese have c 100 guns mostly small moutain guns and no large morters (they are in sepetare regts)

So the Allied Arty advantage is substantial

The CAP report says that my cap is taking time to engage

The continual Japanese attacks at PM have had one very valuable impact - my assault units are almost out of supply - the AI is sometimes smarter than a player - no player would continue with 1:4 attacks they are pointless - right ?

Well not for the AI using up all my supply means I need to think long and hard about whether I can afford to bring in a follow on wave

perhaps someone should tell the AI not to keep bombing ships out of the stratosphere with WWII medium bombers...

hopefully the AI will be more than just an "opponent for 2 mins to find out about some new toggles"...


Perhaps you should read Andy's starting post, especially the bit about the Jap AI invading and conquering huge parts of Australia and sinking five carriers, and then consider whether this has ever happened in a stock AI game.

OK this time the might of 10th USAAF and 223Gp RAF blew 5th Japanese Div out of XV Corps path (sort of !!!)

XV Corps had equivalent to 2 Indian Divs and an Armoured Bde and lots of air support and only managed to dislodge them on day 4 of the battle Cox's Bazaar is 90 miles to the south I think its going to be a long way to Akyab....
