Can you buy out the Aussies? Seems like the Jap high water mark in Oz will make for light work for them now.

One thought about this particular theater of operations .. in my opinion, it is the Solomon's on steroids and I doubt if the IJ will make the mistake of real life not purusing/engaging like Leyte Gulf ....


Mostly agree. However, unlike the Solomons, there is an immediate strategic threat to JJ's SLOC. That makes this fight that much more important for both sides to have.

quote:


Just a thought ... Big risk vs. reward situation ..


Yes. There will be blood.

It's a good time for the Arries to do this, IMO. No kamikaze worries for 10 months means that they can secure the left shoulder of their Phillipines endeavour [sic] and cut off the DEI almost entirely from the home islands before then.

This would be more difficult an endeavour [sic] with kamikazes, that's certain. From what I understand they have a seemingly magnetic attraction to escort carriers, thereby mitigating CVE usage in this environment.



I absoutely agree with you. In my one and only AAR my entire focus was on Burma to end up in Saigon and to island hop to Davao to simply cut off the fuel supply from the DEI. My only comment was based on the Cap's aggressive plan in my view.

Thus I also agree .. this is the time in which CVE's can escort xAK's to defend against LBA .. but the SAG's also have to be accounted for as the IJ will go nuts to defend this very vulnerable area. My comments were based on maybe LBA will be a threat but expect lot's of night surface actions.

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.


Yep, I can do Ramree with that. JJ probably won't be paying too much attention to Burma by then. I also have 18th UK Div on their way. Should be a good rumble in the jungle.

You can have 2nd UK Div for Luzon. I think 32nd ID might need a lot of refitting before they are combat ready again.

On that note, just how many LYBs are touring POW Camp NOz now? Don't you have something like 30K looking for manna in the wilderness?

Way more than 30K. At least 50K are now undead at Port Hedrand. More at Wyndham and maybe 15-20K South of Darwin. At least 10K future undead at Broome. There are 1 1/2 divisions trapped on Dobo.

Air losses from the 24th. Looks like the Kitchen Sink Air Force of Assam bested the Shinto Boys.

Satisfyingly, none of the 17's were downed over Kopeang. They may have shot a couple of Tojos. It looks like, from ground losses, there are Ann's at Palau. Not much of a threat to the Sulu Sea

My white elephant gift from the party is a talking doll. You press her hand and she says things like..."I'm bored. Let's shave my *****"


I tried to get someone to take it from me but no takers. I am pretty sure it will escape its packaging one night and stab me in the heart....or worse. Creepy as Hell.

No disrobing at the party (of which I am aware). There was plenty of deep fried calamari (5 golden rings) and some dericious baked pears stuffed with blue cheese and walnuts. These things were fantastic, I tell you. I ate three.

Pocahantas Girl made a big pitcher of Stoli and cranberry juice and her son put Louisiana hot sauce in it either as a joke or to get even for making him go over to dad's house. The hard cores drank it anyway.

PG's new boytoy is a a police officer. Nice guy but he kept ruining everyone's sobriety test stories by taking the law enforcement side. Even so, someone backed over the neighbor's mailbox when they left.

I had to escort SG across the street so she didn't get a WWI.

What a perfect gift! Considering the occasion, of course. Where does one even FIND such a talking doll.

Wait! On second thought, I'd rather not know...

So SG and I are out getting a Winter Holiday Tree yesterday. I insist on this 9 foot beast with a ten inch trunk. We're at Lowes so the customer service is crappy. We decide to load into onto the pick-up ourselves. I am carrying the heavy end with one hand so I can walk forward. We get to the truck and I perceive that there is no way I am am gong to get enough clearance over the truck bed with one hand to get the thing onto the bed. I am holding a branch on top of the trunk and it has to be probably 6 ft up so the bottom branches can clear. I pause for 3 ms to get ready to climb up on the bed......


SG: Up

Me: No ****?

1. When was the last time you guys saw Soryu or Kaga?

2. What's the status of JJ's CAs?

3. Have you seen Mushashi recently?

All in all, looks like you're well ahead in the exchanges, Allied dogs.

An Arried sub jus took a shot at Kaga 2 days ago near Palau.

Soryu not show up for many moons.

Musashi took a 1000 lb hit from an SBD some time ago IIRC...but swam at away at full speed. We need to assume she will be ready to defend Luzon.

Let's see..2 regiments at Anchorage. One regiment at Dutch Harbor. One regiment or maybe just a Ranger Bn at Adak, I think.

4 Regiments on Oahu.

3 Regiments marching on Manado (I think at least 2 are Army)

3 Regiments beseiging Sorong (at least 1 Army)

Regimental garrisons at Saumlaki, Boela, Namlea and Ternate

32nd ID at Port Hedrand (pretty well wrecked)

I think we lost a regiment in New Scotland..mayb the HQ got out?

Now, Fort Ord is just crawling wtih GI's but they are preventing a surprise landing at Psimo Beach.

Can't vouch for the game OrBat right now, but historically the 7th, 24th, 25th, 27th, 32nd, 37th, 40th, 41st, 43rd, and Americal Divisions were all in theater by Feb '43. IIRC you need to pay PP's for a few of those.

Edit to add: and at least the Americal, 24th, and 25th start as independent regiments. I'm 90% sure you need to pay PP's for the 24th & 25th's round-out regiments from the West Coast and more to unrestrict the regiments that start in Hawaii.
