Ah forgot about this. After months of on again and off again recon we decide to send the Paras in to take an apparently undefended Tezpur which is a key node on the Indian transport system. Unfortunately for us on that day enemy forces were railing through the area, a bit of a suprise for the Staff officers of the Eastern Fleet!

Ground combat at Tezpur (60,36)

Japanese Shock attack

Attacking force 715 troops, 7 guns, 0 vehicles, Assault Value = 48

Defending force 8397 troops, 59 guns, 1 vehicles, Assault Value = 133

Japanese adjusted assault: 21

Allied adjusted defense: 85

Japanese assault odds: 1 to 4 (fort level 0)

Combat modifiers
Defender: op mode(-), leaders(+), preparation(-), experience(-)
Attacker: shock(+)

Japanese ground losses:
92 casualties reported
Squads: 1 destroyed, 10 disabled
Non Combat: 0 destroyed, 0 disabled
Engineers: 0 destroyed, 0 disabled

Allied ground losses:
127 casualties reported
Squads: 1 destroyed, 9 disabled
Non Combat: 0 destroyed, 2 disabled
Engineers: 0 destroyed, 2 disabled

I have longed admired the way you and your partner Tony play this game Jr.


I know broken China gets a lot of play with many but something just doesn't look right with the loss of Burma in 1943. I'm not speaking about your game play guys just the way the program is set up. On another note the Burma Railway and other improved infra structure in theater would not only help in defense but in retreat as well.


More than likely out of playability but I believe the developers have made the ease of supply flow into Burma and Monsoon effects too easy.


I wish you guys the best..Off the soapbox.

SuluSea thanks for the interest and comment.

While there certainly are issues with how things like the effect of Monsson is modelled you also need to look at the fact that in this game around 10-15 ADDITIONAL Allied dvisions and a large proportion of the best Allied Squadrons and pilots are employed here compared to real life.

As a consequence of this, and our modifications to production and troop numbers, any resemblance to the the real war is now meerly an unintended accident :)

What we are hoping to demonstrate is the employment of sound analysis of enemy intentions, consideration of options and how to develop a robust plan for defence.

Again though we would agree it would be nice to have stronger Monsoon effects; although I must say that what we have now does give us an efement of relief from air bombing and is forcing Andrew to sail in large protected convoys to Rangoon to feed the troops (which one day... maybe soon, we will try to interdict...). Those factors have given us enough to generate parity... although we are slowly being worn down... not unreasonable.

Cheers

Rob

I suspect a different story with stacking limits too. Still, it's really hard to defend Burma. It's a shame it becomes the default Allied approach, however.

The problem with stacking limits will be having enough force to break Japanese... it just takes time to move around a stack...

At some point you will get routed... the key I think is to have a succesion of bases preping back into defence, rather than one massive base.

The last few days have been fairly quiet, we took a base next to Ledo in India... but it is more of an annoyance... although we did manage to CAP trap a few of his fighters... a little victory.

Here is the plan for our Defence.

Indications are that Andrew is pulling forces back from in front of Moulmein. They may be just recovering, however we are concenred that he may attempt some thrusts down the seaward flank.

So leaving about 1800 AV in Moulmein (which should recover to about 2200 or so behind 6 to 7 forts) and 1800 in the hex next to Moulmein we have pulled out two divs and two regiments to move into otehr defensive positions.

If he does land and takes the bases on the flank we will need to pull back from Moulmein. Our defences weill then split at around Bangkok. 2/3 will move to cover Malaysia, with the main defensive line at that first base on the left down from Bangkok.. The other 1/3rd will pull back via various routes to the Chinese border. Apart from some tokens and delay we don't intend to defend Bangkok, Saigon etc

Our aim is to try to keep the enemy north of Bangkok until April 1944... then the B-29 comes in and will be in range of our oil fields... and the war will change...

Well we have now made it into 1944!

A recent arrival has the the "r" model of the Frank, we are now producing 500 a month!

All the action continues in Burma, although Suva finally fell when the supplies ran out, and there again is movement on the North East Australia coast...

Large well escorted enemy convoys (with CVE/CVL class vessels) continue to escort convoys to Rangoon. The CA bombardments of Moulmein have mostly ceased, the effect was minimal on us. Elsewhere our ground forces are holding... just... however this has given us time to build up our next line of defence and pull troops back from Moulmein. Moulmein is now over 1800 AV and we have pulled out 3 Divs.

Andrew has been doing the occasional sweep and recon around the place. He swept and reconed Chumphun in Thailand, which is one of our main bases and was full of fighters recovering/training. Sensing he was likely to return I put the fighters on 30% CAP while they trained... a few days later the bombers show up :)

Of his three sweeps one came before the bombers, two came afterwards. The base is heavily trashed, and unfortunately our first "r" model Frank unit was caught on the ground during its conversion process :(

Still a victory and a good cull of the 4E fleet!

Today Andrew undertook the least dangerous to us of of the corses of action available to him by invading Moulmein from the sea.

With massive sea and air bombardment in support he landed... note the high losses in AFV, this is key to us as our AFV defences aren't great. Pity there aren't enough CD units to go round :(

I must say that level 6 forts really work, almost no losses to the bombardments, and as you can see disruption is very low:

The Responce To the Invasion of Moulmein

Tactically not a lot, have created some PT boats and SSX to try and disrupt and annoy the landing force. Otherwise we will continue to hold. At this stage our AV in Moulmein is still growing by 50-80AV a day as squads recover. Tactically this invasion is what we want to have happen... but it will hurt and at some stage we will rout, and it probably won't be pretty...

Operationally we have a dilema. We have a potent strike force of ground based strike aircraft, including around 150 single engined Jill TB, 120 Oscar IIa with high low naval attack, 120 Helen IIa with high Naval attack and about 100 Judy DB. In addition we have the 8 CV KB in strike range.

However this force is also protecting us from a deeper strike into Burma, Malaya or into Sumatra; which is far more dangerous to us than the slow grind at Moulmein....

I'm itching to send the roughly 800 strike aircarft and 300-400 fighters into battle... Andrew has around 300-500 fighters protecting the shipping... so it just ain't worth it.

Our strike is a one shot weapon, we currently have no depth of pilots (and limited aircraft) to recover...

So for the moment we will play it safe... sod it I like 'splodies!


Strategically this move complies with our intent to slow Andrew down and try to grind his ground forces on strongpoints while denying him the freedom to break out into our soft underbelly (because of the troops and ships he has committed here).


As we have largely halted him in Burma / Nth Thailand (and we have the fall back positions at Uttradit Raheng occupied in useful strength) we have freed up about two divs of forces that will soon concentrate at Singapore as our Strategic reserve.


In other News...

Logistics are not good.

Oil is down to 10 days, although about 10 days is about to be unloaded... but it will be at least 20-30 days before the next shipment. We are moving all that is available.

Fuel is at 50 Days, and lots more is coming.

Resources are at 133 days.

So we are shutting down even more convoys to minimise ship movement.

Supply is OK, but we are feeling the pressure of moving it to Singapore for use in Burma / Thailand.

HI has dropped from 5000 to 3000 points a turn as we have turned on more Armaments (when they got to around 105,000) and AFV (now around 8,000). We have stopped more ships, naval yards and turned off some engine production. The HI total is 1.3M.

Air production is going good. The Shinden is coming along nicely, although the engine for it is not as advanced, although soon that should change. The only other aircraft we have being developed of real interest is the Grace.


The latest Beta with the "coastal shipping" route option is awesome!

Still my favourite AAR. It's great to see this one hit 1944 and provide a chance for us to see the late game. I've learned a lot following, so I want to thank you for the time and the informative posts explaining reasons behind your operations, tactics and production. Keep up the excellent gameplay and AAR.

06-18 Jan 1944

During this time things have been relatively stable until the last day. Andrew continues to concentrate in Burma with the bulk of his aircraft hitting the troops on our right flank. Last turn we did a nice ambush with the Frank "r" varient, having the altitude advantage was nice and we got a good haul. This turn though the troops finally rout out of the hex, we have been plesently suprised it has taken this long!

Ground combat at 60,53 (near Chiang Mai)

Allied Shock attack

Attacking force 24621 troops, 530 guns, 712 vehicles, Assault Value = 835

Defending force 16200 troops, 268 guns, 185 vehicles, Assault Value = 311

Allied adjusted assault: 914

Japanese adjusted defense: 232

Allied assault odds: 3 to 1

Combat modifiers
Defender: terrain(+), fatigue(-), experience(-)
Attacker: shock(+)

Japanese ground losses:
4587 casualties reported
Squads: 231 destroyed, 13 disabled
Non Combat: 182 destroyed, 11 disabled
Engineers: 20 destroyed, 10 disabled
Guns lost 75 (42 destroyed, 33 disabled)
Vehicles lost 39 (27 destroyed, 12 disabled)
Units retreated 8

Allied ground losses:
186 casualties reported
Squads: 4 destroyed, 11 disabled
Non Combat: 2 destroyed, 12 disabled
Engineers: 3 destroyed, 21 disabled
Vehicles lost 22 (3 destroyed, 19 disabled)

Defeated Japanese Units Retreating!

Assaulting units:
2/6th Armoured Regiment
I Aus Corps Engineer Battalion
3rd Motor Brigade
41st Infantry Division
2nd USMC Tank Battalion
9th Indian Division
XXXIII Indian Corps

Defending units:
12th Division
2nd RTA Division
5th/B Division
9th Ind.Hvy.Art. Battalion
18th Medium Field Artillery Regiment
34th Field AA Battalion
15th Army
21st Medium Field Artillery Battalion


We are down to 200 AV, however this holding so long has enabled us to get a decent force into Uttaradit (now 1000 AV) and pull out of Chian-Mai gracefully. We only have one div still north of Uttaradit, along with the bulk of the Thai troops defending the approaches to Chiang-Mai.

Elsewhere in Burma we are slowly pulling troops out of Moulmein as the AV goes over 2000 AV. Forts are getting close to level 7.

Here is the current status in Burma. The yellow circle is where the battle last turn was fought. The purple where the Thai's and a single Japanese div are holding back another Allied Army.

His CV's have been nosing around Rangoon way, ours sortied out to show the flag, both sides then fell back. We are expecting an Amphib operation somewhere...


The area around Australia remains quiet, we sank one or two transports going into Perth via subs. otherwise the pattern of movements appear mostly random / administrative.

Just in case though a sub screen is out west of Port Hedland.

We have moved more force into the Kuriles and the bases continue to build over the winter months waiting for expected action in the spring. Our subs are patrolling these apparoaches.


In China we have systematically been destroying Chinese oil and light industry now that Jan 1944 is here (in accordance withour house rules). We are trying to remove China as a threat...



Aircraft production is going well and about half of the Army combat units are now in Frank "r" varients.

Logistics has slightly improved, although a lack of fuel and oil in China / Korea is sometimes shutting down industry.

HI is now only just keeping over the amount required and so almost no surplus is available. We have 1.36M banked though...

Indicators and Warnings
Long Range recon from the Adaman islands has detected interesting developments. Allied CV Tf detected heading back west towards two Allied Amphib (AP class) at Cochin.

Cochin is a good location to launch an invasion from, not on Ceylon, normally outside of recon / search range, on a rail line level 9 port and 6 airfield...

Therefore we are reviewing likely landing sites and starting to prepare. Sumatra is the greatest risk. So some forces are being moved around.

I've learned a lot following, so I want to thank you for the time and the informative posts explaining reasons behind your operations, tactics and production. Keep up the excellent gameplay and AAR.

A second attack sinks her. Only had a small part of an AF unit.

We continue to be lucky against his subs, careful ploting of movement and an agressive ASW campaign being the main reasons.

Lots of uncontested sweeps and bombing of our land forces.

As anticipated Andrew tries to shut down our airbases supporting recon / search... The Tojo IIc do well against the bombers, but not so well when the fighters turn up. One guy does a "Kamikaze" into a bomber... not something we are trying to encourage with our pilots yet! Here are some of the attacks.

We manage to fly out most of the Nell and half of the Tojo's , but the base it trashed. The kills on the 4E (around 40?) are worth it though.

Moving stuff around and into position. We have managed to slip in behind his forces on the line in front of Chungking, he will have to react by moving troops, whcih we can then bomb to greater effect.. especially if he moves some out into the open...

Several large convoys have arrived, or are about to arrive in Singapore. They bring the Guards Div (almost 600AV) some reconsituted Armoured units and some bases forces, plus lots of supply. The Div will form our operational reserve.

Also on the way are two new Air HQ these will go to Sumatra.

We are also pulling forces back from Moulmein (which will soon be level 7 forts) some all the way back to Malaya to try and generate another reserve of forces.

We are slowly loosing North Thailand, it has cost Andrew a month though... at this pace the war is one... Andrew knows this too so am expecting something "interesting" to happen soon. The spidery senses are tingling!

Cheers

The current plan in North Thailand is to try and deny the use of Chiang Mai to the Allies by occupying it with a Japanese div and some Thais. They will get surrounded and may get killed off... So far the delay has allowed us to occumy and build a new defensive line at Uttradit.

Thailand Update.

This picture shows how we have pulled back and are forming defensive positions.

Wew aim to defend from Moulmein to Uttradit on the right as the main line of resistance. We are trying to do that economically to free up units to for a reserve and deal with any Amphib invasions to Sumatra / Malaya.

The Bangkok area will be lightly held as a delaying action to try and giv time for troops to pull back.

In daring raids on Georgetown (by unescorted 4E) bombers and fighter sweeps over Chumphon (one of our major fighter bases) the Allies loose a number of aircraft :)

Oscar IIa do the damages against the 4E while mostly r model Franks fight against the P-38J.

The Oscar unit is one of three that has been training in low level naval attack for several months, they are getting so good now though that they will be converted to heavier aircraft to join the front line. May have to buy out a couple of units from Japan to reforn an Oscar II naval attack capability.

Well done. In the long run, you will win unless the enemy accelerates dramatically and at great risk.

Thanks Cribtop, I'm starting to be more and more convinced we have "won" that is we will keep the Allies from turning the home islands into a crater...

29 Jan 1944
Two attacks in North Thailand supported by air, one defeated nicely, the other I'm suprised we survived... but we did so a few more days of delay... it all adds up!

Our troops involved in the second battle are really battered, however they are keeping the rail to Chiang Mai open, and so we can build supply there for a seige :)

Have you faced any strat bombing of Bangkok yet? Seems like he's plenty in range.

The Thais did good work there. Very surprising. Did you change leaders out?

Thanks obvert, yes he is in range, but using his 4E aagnst our ground troops... without them he wouldn't be moving us. Bangkok is protected by 200 George as well... but he would blow through them and really they are a token as as soon as he attacks they will pull back. Not enough in Bangkok to really fight hard for.

Yes changed out some of the Thai leaders, they have plenty of supply and are behind 2-3 forts (H'mm 1 unit may be 4 forts), but the attrition is getting to them...

Chiang Mai should make level 6 forts, and has 10k in supply so far. the 54th div is almost u\full strength so it should deny the use of Chiang Mai for up to a month.

He finally forces back the blocking force, and they all retreat north into Chiang Mai. Not sure if this is a good thing or bad. The troops can rest and recover, although reinforcements are now "off". Chiang Mai is 3% away from level 6 forts...

Quite, usual bombings of the Thai's. The number of sweeps and escorts has dropped though...

So tomorrow in an attempt to bring relief to the Thais' 450 combat fighters will LRCAP the hex :)

05 Feb 1944 Air battle not quite to plan...

Indicators and Warnings
A single ship is detected SW of Ceylon, looks like Andrew is trying to scout out our detection capabilities. we have several subs with search aircraft.

The P-47 and 4E planes don't fly. This is a tad concerning. We expect him to try to take out the airfields near any landing site... Sabang / Georgetown area is possible...

Subs
Sub attack near Laoag at 81,71

Japanese Ships
E Mikura
E W-29
E Hiyodori

Allied Ships
SS Seadragon, hits 1

ASW attack near Phuket at 47,69

Japanese Ships
DD Asagiri

Allied Ships
SS Finback, hits 2, heavy damage


Burma
Both Moulmein and Chiang Mai are 1 % off their next fort level, 7 and 6 respectfully. Pulling back more troops to create a bigger reserve... something nasty is coming.

Well our fighters LRCAPed the Thai forces, his sweeps came in first though and we didn't really get into the bomber stream. See below for the totals. A bit disapointing to be flying basically the best fighters, with around 60 exp, 70 A-A and 60 Def pilots and still only just do 1:1...

we were at 4 altitude bands, 38,000 for the "r" models, 31,000 for the George, some "r" at 16,000 and the oscar at 1000. The enemy fighters generally get our lower flying CAP, then when thebombers came the rest were too high to intercept that effectively.
