A "whole bunch" (TM) of allied CV forces have moved into the south China Sea and arrived off Hainan. A souple of small strikes by both sides sees the respective attacker handelled roughly with around 70 aircraft lost on both sides. 3 Japanese ACm are lost.

No invasion force is detected, he may just be trying to draw us into attacking this horrible mass.

Our airforce is bought to alert and moved in preparation of being able to launch... however it will hold off for the moment.

Japanese defences on the coast are being rapidly reinforced, still some holes but around 3000 AV is on the way.

How is your sub fleet doing? Are you still able to use those to harass the Allied fleets, or has that turned into a futile gesture simply adding to his VP totals?

Ref subs mostly futile, although did get a torp into a BB a few weeks back. have sortied most of the rest of the boats now.

This turn we lost almost 600 aircraft trying to attack the fleet that has landed on Hainan at Takao. we lost about 200 Kamis and 120 TB for no effect as they largely went in piecmeal and hardly any of the escorts flew :( Only lost about 180 aircrew though, have already rebuilt most of teh airgroups, can do this at least once again.

This turn am trying a few things.

Our CV fleet has sortied, probably for the last time.

Also a few other strikes to try and keep him honest....

Another couple of weeks (Nov 1944) and his bombers will be able to attack the home islands. Moving the intercepter units into position now.

Cheers

Rob

Yeah. That is a lot of planes. Although I just lost 900+ in one turn, so I feel your pain! I think the A6M2 might be making another appearance.

After the CV battle we've just had (and I've lost) I am thinking again about settings. How do you set movement for yours? A follow? A patrol hex? Just a destination, no retire?

Ref CV movement usually in two TF following an ASW TF, this has proven to be the most effective, they all stay togather and almost never "react".

27 Oct 1944

This turn massive air attacks on Takao. 117,000 allied troops and 3,500 AFV easily take Takao.

Our CD guns did almost nothing. Being a clear hex the air attacks (400 odd 4E plus several hundred CV aircraft) trashed the troops. Most of our aircraft didn't fly due to weather, although LRCAP over Takao did work and we got over 100 allied aircraft for about 60 of ours.

Hainan is now lost. Have begun the evacuation from here, the southern Phillipines and the Marianas. Time to start building up the coastal defences of Japan. Air groups are starting to transition back to Home Island Defence.

Our CV's failed to get close enough to strike, and now he has detected them. The battlefleets will now retire on Japan as a fleet in being.... with almost no fuel :(

The only good news is our fighter groups are in good to great shape and have a good pool of 70+ exp and skill piots to draw on. Our strike groups are almost fully rebuilt as well.

Cheers

Rob

Are you glad you built out all the carriers? It seems to me Katsuragi won't ever be able to accomplish anything except being sunk in port. Are you glad to have her to bump up your fleet in being, or would you rather have the HI points to turn into fighters?
