Ground combat at 75,50 Allied Deliberate attack
Attacking force 204832 troops, 1019 guns, 0 vehicles, Assault Value = 7661
Defending force 104464 troops, 1116 guns, 303 vehicles, Assault Value = 3686
Lets See what we know:
Two to one in infantry Parity in number of guns no vehicles.
Attacking in Forest Rough - Significant Bonus to the Defender.
Attacker: supply(-) - That must really hurt!
Allied adjusted assault: 1318 17% of base AV OUCH!
Japanese adjusted defense: 5308 147% of base AV
Allied assault odds: 1 to 4
What we do not know:
What your pre-battle supply levels were? From the limited information we know it is poor - was it abysmal?
What was your leadership / chain of command like - You have elements of 46 different Corps there with 6 Group Armies and 5 War Areas 7 to 1 in the hex Group Army to Corps, and almost parity in War Areas. Seems low - Did you had other Group Armies in adjacent hexes?
What was your support level like? - good I assume since you had all the War Areas in the hex or should the War Areas been farther away since they have a reasonable command radius.
Average Experience levels of the combat troops?
Leadership Stats? How many of them were not suitable.
Does the amount of vehicles affect the number of destroyed versus disabled squads?
I also suspect the three construction regiments did nothing else other then consume supply, and while providing targets.
Would it be worth it to airlift shattered / untrained units out of china to reduce your supply burden?
From your map you have no knowledge of his forward garrison line - Another use for damaged fragments.
The results look like a extremely poorly executed human wave attack conducted by the French in Plan 17 or the opening hours of the Somme Offensive.
Japanese ground losses:
1950 casualties reported
Squads: 2 destroyed, 222 disabled
Non Combat: 2 destroyed, 145 disabled
Engineers: 2 destroyed, 19 disabled
Vehicles lost 21 (0 destroyed, 21 disabled)
Allied ground losses:
40332 casualties reported
Squads: 531 destroyed, 2226 disabled
Non Combat: 202 destroyed, 2435 disabled
Engineers: 14 destroyed, 134 disabled
Lastly Some times we offend the God of Luck - looks like in this case she actually spat at you.
