Interesting AAR - especially the effect of the house rule on fighter operations altitude vs maneuver band.
Given that he can rebuild his shattered land units with excess Supply / Heavy Industry / Vehicle Points with time, he just has to withdraw fragments of land units to reconstitute them.
Do you believe he is trying to withdraw whole units to the Home Islands / inner perimeter or just fragments.
Given you early lack of submarine / commerce campaign what do you estimate his HI / Vehicle / Resource / Fuel / Supply Reserves?
With the changes in the beta, you don't have to worry about saving fragments any longer. When a unit is destroyed, you can spend some PPs and the unit will pop up at the home base where you can rebuild it from scratch.
I imagine Rader has massive piles of all the key resources. At this point he's cutoff from all the key oil/resource centers except for Korea and the Phillipines.
The war has been going slow due to holiday trips and whatnot and we are now at July 19, 1945. I've been gobbling up all the lightly defended bases in Malaya, the DEI, Indochina-thailand, and China. The russians are slowly advancing towards Korea, are besieging Mukden, captured Harbin, and are about to capture Vladivostok. I will post a thorough update once I get the time and things start to get more interesting.
