Some might say brave, others daring and others foolhardy.
A few questions:
1. How will we keep them supplied with JJ having airbases on either side of our SLoCs?
Good question. The same way Ternate is supplied with Ambon, Kendari, Dili, Koepang, Manado and Sorong still in Jap control. With air power. Chiefly, the B-24. Jolo is already level 3. Preconditions:
--Jolo already level 5 to support heavies.
--Taytay already level 2 and with enough aviations upport for SBD's and P-38's
--both bases >20K suppries. Better 50K+ for Jolo. Fuel at Jolo.
--Some attrition work already done on Luzon airbases (waves hands around). I'm guessing they won't have aviation support at every base.
--Dajangas and Sangi at least level 1
2. What's to stop JJ reinforcing Luzon and kicking us out?
--Good question. They wont' be able to land in Norhtern Lzuon or Manila so it would have to be SE Luzon. In that case it would have to be Wasp, Yorktown and 3 BB's. I was hoping they would run out of troops.
3. Can I still do my Burma op?
Can you do it with Vicky, Hermes and the three CVE's in the IO, plus PoW, Resolution and Colorado? I'm thinking use the full Aus I Corps and Br 18th at Ramree and really unhinge their position in Burma.
But we would need Br 2nd for Luzon as 32nd ID is bereft of infantry...or maybe use PP's and free a division from Hawaii.
