Apart from the loss on Unryu it was a good turn :(

Our CV's will move back to keep out of range of the mitchells, but in range of the enemy invasion force if it does go to Darwin. Lots of fighters and strike aircraft head to Dilli... expecting the battle of Darwin to commence!

Have loaded up a Naval guard unit at Kendari to retake Taberfane next to Dobo, recon shows it is empty...

The usual at Moulmein, although now he is amphib landing more troops direct to the hex... or maybe it is supply... Next turn will try a LRCAP trap over Moulmein.

Sumatra / Malaya
He is moving quickly down the west coast of Sumatra, we have some units moving that way to try and hold him. Sent in some Frank at low level to slow him as well. At this rate Langsa will become untenable soon.

East DEI
Several enemy TF are near Samulaki... is it a landing or another attempt to get us to react? KB is rearmed and is moving back this way. Mini KB is at Sorebaya.

Well it certainly is starting to feel like soon we will have the straw that will break our back. Starting to concentrate for the defence of Singapore (wish to deny it to Andrew for as long as possible). Palembang will also become untenable soon, that will really hurt.

With almost no oil surplus except in China (and all the oil producing locations sucked dry) I'm really suprised that we only have about 77 days of fuel, and maybe another 30-50 days available.

Have started to shut down more HI production in the Home Islands, that will affect supply... we are at about 640k in Japan.

Have started to really cruch the shipbuilding as well.



Things I'd do different next time That I'm Thinking at the Moment
I think we possibly went a little overboard on our air research, this cost us a lot of supply. But I'm not sure how much we could tone back either...

Oil Oil Oil. Repair it and ship it back. Even the smaller places. You need it all.

Manage the ship building better. We produced a lot of stuff we didn't need, small xAK in particular. We did a better job on the warfighting ships but could have managed it a bit better.

Fuel conservation. We went a Viking with the fleet a lot, that cost us a fair bit in fuel. Conserve fuel where you can.


Things we did good
Air production / Reserach. We are still relatively capable in the air due to the effort we put in early.

Ground combat. Overall our fighting on the ground has been very good.

Overall strategy. Our overall strategy has worked well.


Cheers
Rob

An overlooked area for Japan is in sending multiple groups of engineers to various bases to expand them and build forts. Unlike the Allies, this effort takes some time and needs to be done throughout the war.

I'll second that. Thanks to Michael's advice I did this, and my fort levels are really in good shape as a result.

Yeah, my base force at Hakodate still hasn't maxed the port to level 7 by 11/43!

I've been diligent about this, but still feel behind everywhere.

In this game your forts have seemed very strong in all of the recent areas the Allies attacked. at least that keeps things slow for now. I hope you can stall enough to keep the oil flowing through 44 at least.

Are you still building forts in the HI to protect against bombing and possible later invasions, or has this finished now that supply is getting scarce?

Fort building in Japan stopped after we got to level 3. All the available engineers were shipped out. In the last 4-6 months we have started again building from the northern tip backwards, 6 forts 6 aflds.

We prefer to build defence in depth and try to get several lots of 100 engineers working, rather than build one mega base at a time. Usually build forts to 3, Afld to 4 then more forts with selected airfields going to 6 or more.

Have found that key bases really need to be 7, 6 just isn't enough to support CAP, escorts and strike aircraft in meaningful numbers.

Try to build "clusters" of 3-5 bases in mutual support at a time, this is much more resilient than one big base.

Only very recently have we got any to level 8-9, although we needed them in the home islands with all the air units that have arrived recently.


Due to the lack of action in the SWPAC we have all the islands back to Japan now at level 6, a few at 7 and a couple near 8... Level 6 forts are really sweet to sit behind...

East DEI
We continue to hit Dobo.

He continues to move real or fake invasion forces around while keeping them under his fighter cover.

KB and Mini KB are marrying up. The aircraft from the CVE's are being sent to land bases in the DEI, the CVE's themselves will head back out of trouble. KB will then be formed with everything that is useful...

OZ

Pacific
Enemy raiders hit a tanker convoy, we are lucky to loose only one ship! Aircraft are scrambled into the area and a CL TF is sent out to hunt the AO's supporting the raiders... hopefully our aircraft will deal with the raiders.


Night Time Surface Combat, near Iwo-jima at 102,79, Range 14,000 Yards

Japanese Ships
DD Hibiki
DD Ikazuchi, Shell hits 1
DD Inazuma

Our aircraft fail to locate the raiders during the day phase, he has either run back to the AO's or gone deeper....


China
We continue to trash the forces advancing on Neiking, but looks like we won't be able to stop them.

31 March 1944


Indicators and Warnings
Enemy raiders detected near Babeldoab now! A hit of wher eth AO's are and our CL Tf is vectored in that way for next turn.

Subs

Thailand
The troops retreating from Moulmein are hit.

Abandoning central Malaya and starting to thin out in central Burma to create a strong defence at Bangkok.

Sumatra / Malaya
Have managed to get troops in front of his forces coming down the west coast of Sumatra... will see how long they can hold. A bit moot soon when he lands south of us.

Pulling stuff back into Singapore and getting it ready for a seige. Have started to setup some outlying bases to act as roadblocks.

Pulling out fragments of units back to Manila.


East DEI
Usual at Dobo. Continuing to kill aircraft on the ground.

He still moves invasion forces around.

KB and Mini KB continue to rearm and reorginise.

OZ

Pacific
AO's detected about 16 hex west from Marcus island heading back to Hawaii? May get to intercept it next turn...


China
Oil continue sto repair at Lanchow.

Moving armoured forces deeper into China.

1 Apr 1944 - The Raiders are Tagged

Indicators and Warnings

Subs
A new wave of subs has moved into my convoy lanes between Takao and the Home Islands. I have recently occupied and built Bataan Is now I have a chain of ASW bases protecting the route. This combined with several ASW TF is largely keeping the subs detected and supressed so casulties have been very light.

Submarine attack near Taihoku at 86,62

Japanese Ships
SC Ch 32, Torpedo hits 1, heavy damage

Allied Ships
SS Angler

SC Ch 32 is sighted by SS Angler

Sub attack near Tanegashima at 101,63

Japanese Ships
E Miyake

Allied Ships
SS Escolar




Thailand
The plan now is for our forces to retreat in two directions, mainly via Bangkok to the Vietnam / China border, some will retreat down the peninsula to Singapore.

We continue to thin out forces on the front line back to Bangkok. Moving fragments now back to Vietnam / China border to rebuild around Hanoi.

The Thai / Malaya Corridor will only be lightly held.

Sumatra / Malaya
No change, looks like We've managed to block in him North Sumatra for the moment... until he builds up the offshore islands that is.

Mainly focussed on getting the air defence of Singapore and Palembang organised.

East DEI
Dobo is again hit killing more aircraft on the ground.

He continues to move real / fake invasion forces around within the air cover of his bases. This is probably a feight.

OZ

Pacific
First we catch the AO TF that suported the raid:

Logistics 2 Apr 1944
Have shut down some merchant and naval shipbuilding, and re focussed which ships we now need (TK's, subs, escorts, DD's, LST's).

Have shut off 540 HI in the home islands. This has had a positive impact of fuel and resources, balanced against changes to Naval / Merchant yards has increased HI produced a turn.

Have pulled back fuel 70k from Truk.

Armaments and vehicles are slowly climbing... we will need them soon to rebuild the smash units from Thailand.

2 Apr 1944 Air Production

So far going well, no new aircraft for a few months however Shinden is about 50% repaired, another month or so should see the first factory producing. Grace is coming along nicely. The only other aircraft is the Ki-83, thought it looked interesting!

We stuffed up with the Ha-43 Engine (for the N1k5 George in particular) as we only have two large factories, and they are not due until Jan 1945 (probably arrive Oct / Nov 1944).

Thailand Withdrawel Plans
The intent is to fight hard on the Bangkok line to give time to pull out shattered units back to Lang Son.

Intermediate lines will be built to at least level 4 forts to act as delaying points for the withdrawel (as you can see have largely achieved that already). This should stop rapid exploitation of his armour and force him to bring up infantry divs... giving us time to get away.

I'd like to try to hold Vinh for a while if possible...

Lang Son will be built in strength, after that point the coastal plain can't be held... however want to cover the rail line if possible at Nanning.

Also building Phenom Penh (5 forts now) and Saigon (5 forts soon 9 Airfield). Will see how the retreat gods go to see what forces end up in these locations. Denying Saigon for a while would be very nice...

East DEI
We damage / Sink upto 5 CVE while suffering a sub hit to one of ours and light damage on another. About half our ground based air doesn't fly dueto weather. The airgroups on KB are fairly battered. KB will now withdraw. Samulaki then falls.

Both our CV Tf and the allied reacted towards one another, despite no react and following a ASW TF, which then puts them in max range of the usually deadly B-25

We created some MTB and SSX last turn that manage to disrupt the landing and cause a bit of damage.

A victory of sorts, we hit five CVE, sinking at least two, an AO and a few other ships for no loss. We have two banged up CV's though, and our Kate airgroups are again decimated (well much more than 1 in 10!). Samulaki falls, however we are forcing him to commit strong forces every time, which will slow him down.

I dread seeing the P-47D25 models in serious numbers over my bases in three months time.

I'm willing to fight the early model P-47s and win the war by attrition, but not when he gets over 150 of those D25s per month. YIKES!! Even Japanese production cannot keep up with those losses.

P-47D25s are really unstoppable. What about setting your CAP really low? They are arriving at 42,000 feet...and at that altitude you are always at disasvantage...probably forcing them to dive for 20/30,000 feet could change things a bit...but just a bit, mind you

Oosthaven - Change some TF to have this base as their home port. This will make the AI move fuel from Palembang to there. Hopefully, you can use those small 1250 TKs to run to and from Batavia to get some fuel out.

Thanks NY59Giants, been using OOsthaven for 12 months, I use 7950 size TK to move the fuel to Java on a shuttle. Now with lots of tankers it is going to Manila or Hong Kong direct. Only way to get out all the goodies from Palembang!

Methinks the Wake invasion is the beginning of a Hail Mary. For all his success in SE Asia, he still won't win the war without a move in the Pacific.

Thanks Cribtop, not so sure, certainly is putting additional presure on. I think he was just trying some things out with forces he had "spare". The next step will be difficult, all our next lot of bases are well defend at around 300AV each and level 7 forts, as well as mutually supporting... The exception being Marcus Is.


10 Apr 1944

Was wondering why our George pools were so low, found that I'd left "upgrade on" so they had all converted to the George 5 version, which would normally be OK but we have no engines available for it yet! So I've downgraded a 5 back to a 2, converted over a Zero factory to geaorge, turned on more Zero's and changed the Toko rocket to the Ha-43 which is what we need... all of which will cost us a fair bit of supply just when things are getting tight :(
