Logistics 1 Mar 1944

We have about 70 days fuel,6 days oil 130 days resources in the home islands.

We have enough HI banked to last around 120 days. We are still making more than we are using.

Recent capture (and hopefully future capture) of oil fields in China will give us a bit more resilliency.

We have / are moving all the oil and fuel being produced.

Recently upgraded the shipyard in Manila to 40 repair in prep of loosing access to Singapore and Sorebaya and expecting Naval battles in the Philipines.

The focus here is taking Lanchow with its 91 oil.

Andrew has built a new "great wall" covering the central plain, however he may be also planning an offence towards Sian as some large forces are moving from the centre that we, we need to be careful that we don't get caught....

With around 200 bombers and 200 fighters in the area we have control of the air, except over Chungking which is defended by spitfires and where lots of aircarft are flying in supply. Need to deal with that "soon"... Lanchow comes first.

1 - 8 Mar 1944 ---- Sumatra
Until about the 3rd it was quiet. Many of our airgroups upgraded to 49 strong units and we rearanged training squadrons etc.

About then we caught the first sniff of enemy forces leaving Ceylon and heading south. The next day it was confirmed and our CV force (less two in drydock in Singapore) conducted the last plane and pilot replenishment and put to sea.

We were / are execting Andrew to bring a lot of stuff and move as a "death star" to Sabang to unload more engineers, supply etc.

Our plan was / is to try and coord land and Naval air, to only strike when he is in Sabang hex.

Until then we have been hitting both the airfield and port of Sabang. The airfield is well closed and the port is at about 70% damaged, that should help slow his unloading... keeping him in the target area.


On the 8th the situation is as below. During the days combat we get a sub trop hit on:
CV Soryu, Torpedo hits 1 (10 Sys damage 39 float)
CS Mizuho, Torpedo hits 1 (1 Sys, 9 float)

But we get two subs in return (the area around Sabang is thick with them.

The main body of the enemy stays 1 hex outside our trigger line, except for two ASW groups, with smallish strikes we manage to bad two modern DD's:


Japanese aircraft
A6M5b Zero x 40
B6N2 Jill x 18

Japanese aircraft losses
B6N2 Jill: 10 damaged
B6N2 Jill: 1 destroyed by flak

Allied Ships
DD Hunt
DD Jenkins
DD Isherwood
DD Kimberly, Torpedo hits 1, heavy damage

Japanese aircraft
A6M5b Zero x 39
B6N2a Jill x 22

Japanese aircraft losses
B6N2a Jill: 3 damaged
B6N2a Jill: 1 destroyed by flak

Allied Ships
DD Isherwood
DD Jenkins, Torpedo hits 1
DD Luce



On the ground we have been slowly pushed back until finally at Langsa we counterattack his leading armour before the main body arrives :) Our casulties are high to a couple of our fragmented forces... this should give him pause to think.

Ground combat at Langsa (46,74)

Japanese Deliberate attack

Defending units:
4th Armoured Brigade
762nd Tank Battalion

Now onto the Map.

The plan is for massed ground based aircraft to sweep Sabang with followup strikes from 140 odd land based DB, 130 TB and our strike aircraft from the CV on the TF as they unload. At the same time Helens with bomb the port in case he tries to disband stuff into port...

Prior to this we will try to disrupt the night time phase with night attacks... We have also been laying mines.

... holding our breath.
Stopping them cold? Decisive actions...
Or a big maskirowka? 30% feint, 30% real action, 30 % reserves... HE was the last one who post in your opponent's aar.
How many CVs did you count there?

Still my favorite AAR btw!

Thanks Wuffer, well the results are in. I will post the full Combat report below.

We do pretty good around Sabang, mines hit a coouple of ships, not sure how well our SCTF broke up enemy TF as it came in certainly a lot of reacting. In the end it mostly died loosing CA Aoba CL Noshiro and 4 DD's, damaging a fair bit in return.

Two more lots of sub strikes puts Soryu under :( In the resulting days flying only about half our CV aircraft flew, rather annoying.

Our land based DB and TB do good though. It looks like he has only a small CVL force about 3 hex out from Sabang they don't put up a huge CAP which our sweeps easily brush asside leaving the strike aircraft free range over his shipping aruond Sabang. The Oscars do a great job of busting up LST's!

We get the BB Valient and a fair few transports, with more badly damaged, however a fair bit of stuff got ashore, and more is still unloading, so effectively a draw really, we can't stop him from doing this.

Suspect his main CV forces are further back or coming around the flank to try and hit our expected depleated CV forces...




Lots of action in the East DEI as well. Two strong SCTF supported by a strong CVE TF sticks its head into the lions den... we loose a fair few aircraft but get torp hits on 3 BB's. He sinks two small TK convoys and trashes the oil facilities at Babo.

Sumatra area, as you can see Andrew put in a strong SCTF barrier between us and his transports, although they then suffered a bit under air attacks.

This is the East DEI, he is slowly creeping forward here... delay delay delay. The loss of access to these oilfields is very annoying, they have been useful.

10 March 1944 - Begining of the end...
Well day two of the attacks on the reinforcement convoys around Sabang were not as good :(

Combination of reasons, our strike aircraft flew before the multiple sweeps (about a third aborted though which is good) our CV force again barely flew (probably a good thing) and Andrew threw all his CV fighters on CAP and put about 200 P47D into the heavily damaged Sabang. We lost over 500 aircraft.

We did manage to get two more DD's.

Next turn we will send in two SCTF and two BB Bombardment forces to try to clear Sabang and trap the P-47 on the ground... bit of a forlorn hope though. Our air will only sweep while the strike groups repair, replace and recover planes and pilots.

In the East DEI near Dobo about 70 Nells suffered 50% losses to sink two CVE's.

CR to follow later.

If only the game ended in 1943, eh? Still, you have not lost CVs or even too many surface assets. What is your ability to replace the pilots?

Big picture, he will shut down the oil fields one by one with 4Es and eventually re-capture much of the DEI. Then it will be 1946. He will have to make the big leap to the Marianas or the Kuriles in order to win, and I don't see it happening. You could argue he can take the DEI, then the PI, the Okinawa, but that's a long slog for the time he has remaining.

Plus, Kamis will activate soon...

Cribtop so true!

11 Mar 1944

Well our TF's went in and failed to break through to either the transports or the airfields, there were just too many enemy TF. During these combats we gave about as good as we got back.

During the day though we last 3 BB's to aubs and airstrikes when they didn't run fast enough.

In the DEI we got andother CVE.

The end of day score was:
5 Japanese BB
1 CL
6 DD

vs

1 CVE
3 DD
3 Subs

Both sides have lots of damaged ships, we may loose a CA and 1-2 DD's.

We lost 157 aircraft vs 43.


Andrew also trashes the port at Bangkok, not sure why, maybe he thinks we are bringing forces / supplies in through there...

Here is the CR, need to really think hard now...

Thoughts
Bugger! it had to happen sometime.

Strengths
Our fleet has been badly hurt; however we still have:
8 CV (1 light damaged, 1 medium)
1 CVL
6 CVE
5 BB (1 damaged, 1 upgrading)
8 CA (1 mod damaged)
10 CL (1 mod, 2 upgrading)
3 CS
90 DD (6 damaged 1 badly).

Our airgroups are in good shape, except for Naval strike aircraft. A real numbers weakness in Naval fliers though. Our fighters just can't handle the P47 though :(

Our ground forces are in excellent shape and reasonably balanced and positioned.

Andrew is starting to run out of time unless he can do something really bold...


Weakness
Fuel and oil. Supply is a bit of a problem.

Threats
He now has a firm position at Sabang. However we have a decent force blocking him. They should hold for a few weeks to a month.

From Sabang he can now bring 4E to bear on Palembang, but still can't escort from there so he needs to continue to advance or risk loosing lots of 4E to our fighters...

From Sabang he can jump down the Sumatra coast. We have small garrisons well dug in and can reinforce them if we choose. However we can't stop, only delay.

He can probably move on Java as well and link up with the forces in the East DEI.


Opportunities
If he advances in less than massive strength we may be able to pick off forces. By forcing him to concentrate we can slow him down.

The enemy forces in the East DEI are a particular vulnerable place at the moment...



Overall Intent
We need to try to keep the fuel/oil flowing as long as possible.

We need to try to keep the ground and airforces fighting, and not caught / trapped behind lines where they become irrelevant.



At the moment I see two broad courses of action.

COA 1 Defend forward hard forcing delay, however risking a breakthrough and possibly loosing forces by getting them trapped.

COA2 Pulling back now and occupying a srong defensive line (but potentially giving up some / most of the oil fields).


Regardless now is the time to pull fuel from the SWPAC and pull out more troops, in particular to the DEI

Would like to try and hold the oil fields of Borneo if possible...

Not sure how to defend the Philipines, so many bases that can be landed on... Maybe just focus on Luzon?

With the levels of fuel and oil you have now, plus not too much HI to rely on, he may not need to get to bombing range of the Home Islands to shut down the industry. Luckily he may not know your remaining levels. It seems like time for extreme conservation of fuel as well as extreme protection of the oilfields at all costs, but of course that's tough. Losing the BBs is hard, but at least now you'll use less fuel.

How long would you predict your current supply of fuel/oil would last based on industry as it is now and projecting slightly less consumption by ships?

quote:

ORIGINAL: Cribtop

If only the game ended in 1943, eh? Still, you have not lost CVs or even too many surface assets. What is your ability to replace the pilots?

Big picture, he will shut down the oil fields one by one with 4Es and eventually re-capture much of the DEI. Then it will be 1946. He will have to make the big leap to the Marianas or the Kuriles in order to win, and I don't see it happening. You could argue he can take the DEI, then the PI, the Okinawa, but that's a long slog for the time he has remaining.

Plus, Kamis will activate soon...


Is he not within close enough range of Saigon now to activate kamis? I did see in the combat report one Oscar pilot chose to 'die for the emperor.' He is 17 hexes from Saigon now, so they should be active according to michaelm's comment below in linked thread.

quote:

ORIGINAL: michaelm

Base within 20 sea hexes of BASE_TOKYO, or BASE_TAKAO or BASE_SAIGON. Not counting bases in China or Tibet.

The Kamis are 20 SEA hexes, so needs to be down around Singapore before they activate. Am training pilots to be Kami's already...

12 March 1944

After a lot of thinking and discussion we decide that we will continue to defend forward with ground troops while our air protects the important industrial / oil / fuel areas.

A lot of stuff will now be moved around, mainly by air, such as airHQ, and making sure we have remnants of units well back.

Starting to evacuate shipping from Singapore and moving stuff towards Java to slow him there.


Indicators and Warnings
The bulk of the Allied fleet is still in the Indian Ocean around Sabang.

We bomb Lanchow causing about 400 casulties then the attack goes in. Result is better than expected! Will rest a day then try a shock attack. Taking this base with its 90 oil will be a huge bonus for the Japanese war effort.

What are your pools and production numbers for your modern fighters like the George and Frank?? I've just hit '44 and dread the arrival of the P-47D25s. Which bombers, Army and Navy, are the best to get their torpedoes to launch?? Is speed the determining factor more than range??

Signed,
Novice Japanese player getting into '44 for the first time.

:)

The "r" model Frank is my favorite at the moment, was doing about 300 a month, but now turned back on the full capacity of 500. The Tojo IIc does ok at forward bases and the Oscar II for Naval attack (although I may try the "r" Frank in that role as well). Height, numbers and pilot skill all count!


George is much better than the Zero model 5. Waiting for the 5 model George, but we stuffed up engine research on the Ha-43 (have two large factory's rather than several ones in the 30's).

Bombers, Helen IIb is good, but not a lot of choice :( Wish we had more Emily units. Have kept about 4 units in Ann single engined bombers for use in China.

Been using Nell, soon will try Frances.

We really struggling with IJNAF pilot numbers, have training units sitting around with no pilots (I don't like drawing them forward too much). Have oodles of IJAAF pilots though. So recently puting the George further bank and having the Frank do all the fighting on the front.

For the future have Shinen, Ki-83, Peggy (Torp version)and Grace all underway.

Am "banking" 80 exp pilots at the moment, want to have some real "killer" units when Shinden comes.

I'm looking forward to seeing your experiances and thoughts!

Cheers
Rob

Be careful about shock attacking Lanchow. In my experience SAs are more likely to damage infrastructure.

Thanks Cribtop, was pretty confident the enemy engineers were dead or disabled. We took it without any further damage :)

Mixed turn where we take Lanchow with it's 90 oil, defeat an allied Motor Bde in the jungle with the trrps that retreated from Chiang Mai , but suffered and unexpected blow at Moulmein!

The dropping of the forts at Moulmein means we have to start pulling back from the Thai Coast now, and speed up the prep for the defence of Singapore and the Vietnam/ China border...

Need to keep killing UK squads where ever possible like this.

At Moulmein we are bombed by about 250 4E bombers, which cause almost no damage real or psychological to our troops (disruption etc , even after the attack, is low). Then the attack goes in, unexpectedly it he gets 2:1, dopps the forts although his casulties are significant...

Did he have a Command HQ prepped for this base?? If so, he can get up to 90% increase in adjusted AV.

Our air units are tired and are rested. Weather stops KB from flying. He bombs the Oil at Boela. Am brining forward some more air units from Japan. More troops, inlcuding air HQ are unloading at Sorong (north tip Ne Guinea) and soon at Dili. More troops load in Tokyo for this area.

Our target is the CA SCTF and the base at Dobo. Our air is at Boeala and the two bases on the north of New Guinea. Lots of troops have recently arrived at Dili (including an air HQ) and Sorong (inclusing and air HQ). Moving in more fighters now we have the air support.

Thinking of counter landing at Dobo with a mixed Bde...

We tried an attack with Nells this turn... not enough escorts flew and KB was socked in (so was Dobo a bit).

Next turn should be very different, the BB Tf will go in, and our aircraft should fly on mass...

Wow. A lot going on. I know a lot of reinforcements arrive in the spring of 44. Where is most of this heading for you? Have you also begun to bring back any of the Central Pacific forces to consolidate into a tighter perimeter?

Thanks Obvert, yes there is! Lots of base units have been arriving, most are off to the DEI. Some divs will arrive soon as well, at least one will be bought out, not sure where it will go yet. Lots of IJNAF units also arriving, have no pilots in the pools though and am reluctant to drag them forward.


Battle for Dobo 21-23 March
Over the last few days we have been trying to supress Dobo. The initial air attacks have failed, his fighter strength was too much so first Mini KB then KB have become involved until bobardment forces could get out of repairs.

The first TF to get on the scene was sent in, someone forgot to take off "Do not retire...":

We have a third Bombardment TF now on a run in, have AKE and AO's at Ambon as a support base so will keep KB around one more day before it moves back to safety. Have moved in 100 Army bombers and have another 100 ready when we have the air support. We are going to ounter land at Taberfane and may counter land at Dobo.

So a poor start but we now have the upper hand, Dobo is to far away from any support except by his 4E bombers.

The real aim of this is to convince Andrew that doing bold deep moves is a bad thing, and to hurt him while we can. This should force him back to a methodical battle that should generate the delay we need.

Things will change in a few weeks though when the B-29 start to appear, we will need to protect our oil fields with fighters... not sure there are enough to go round :(

We are pulling more stuff out of the SWPAC. The next line of defence is complete and occupied, and there are no signs of him pushing in the SOPAC SWPAC or CENTPA areas. These forces are now being moved to the DEI.

Cheers
Rob
