Also, if you find that marching 5 divisions across New Guinea is "gamey", then what about the Allies being able to launch massive offensives in Burma, in '42?

I have tried to do this once and the supply situation completely stopped me dead. Perhaps this was possible when the game was first released but I dont know if possible now.


I know that there have been some changes. It it now very difficult for the Allies to march overland and retake Darwin. Plus supply does not flow into North Burma until the Allies have built up bases there so the initial attack is difficult. I don't think they did anything with the Buna to PM route. I really do not think that tactic was wrong. It works both ways and the Allies can do the same thing when they take it back. I certainly would do it if I were playing Japan. There are just too may quirky supply routes to single out one as an exploit without naming about a dozen others. Supply is what it is, and both sides have to deal with it to some extent all over the map.

If we make a parallel with the historical situation in Europe in 1944 :

Let's consider that Hokkaido is UK and Japan mainland is France.
The 4 bases north of Honshu are the Pas-de-Calais area. The most obvious targets.
The allied did everything to make the germans think that they will land there. They bombed everything and they even made a "false" landing in Dieppe (1942). Like Greyjoy did.
The germans kept their main forces in the area like you are doing.

The 6 june the allied landed in Normandy, about 350 km south.
That's why i think that the landing will occur south of Honshu. Tokyo is too risky. I will say that Sendai area is the target.

Just my 2 (euro) cents...

Agree 100%, but the Germans couldn't have chosen NOT to defend the Pas-de-Calais or else the Allies actually would have gone there. It's tough, becuase even though I suspect you're correct about a landing farther south, I can't reasonably chose NOT to defend the most obvious landing sites (while remaining concious that it might happen somewhere else).

Germany's mistake was not defending the Pas-de-Calais like they did, it was their reaction to the real invasion. They should have immediately released enough forces to kick the allies out before the allies secured their lodgements.

I've got what in my estimation is enough troops to defend the Sendai area until reinforcements can arrive (over 3000+ AV behind strong forts). But I think I'd be silly to strip the defenses from the North to defend it better.

There is actaully another good reason to land at Normandy ..

If you ever play Fotress Europa one gets a feel for the port situation once you get a foothold and the mulberry aboard the beaches .. then the possibilites for ports become quite limited given the needed forces to contest the area .. and the Germans have the whole Army concentrated .. it becomes a WWI type fight being bottled up at Le Havre and the beaches around Calis ..the Allies are restricted quickly by supplies and the amount of units required to maintain the beachead.

At Normandy there are all the ports in the Cherborg Peninsula [plus the Germans are restricted from reacting because of game rules] ..it enables a WWII operation Corbra to occur ..plus it takes so much for Germany to react etc ..

The situation Germany faced in comitting armor at least is sort of like yours Rader .. the game similates quite well ground bombing in open terrain ..

no matter what it will be intresting how this unfolds ..

I agree. I hope you have some quick reaction forces, that you can deploy rapidly to the beachhead by transport planes and other means.
Good luck anyway

August 29, 1944.

I decided to try some minor offensive action with a spoiling bombardment of Hakkodate where Greyjoy has about 2000 aircraft. Surprisingly, most of my ships managed to fight their way though BB Washington (sunk) and BC Renown (probably sunk) and got off a stiff bombardment. About 160 allied aircraft reported destroyed, including many of the useful kind (see below). Inevitably, my depleted surface forces eventually ran into his DDs and PT boats, and he managed to hit back, sinking one of our BBs and 2 CAs with these darned little pesks. So far, all 4 of the sunk BBs including Yamato, have been destroyed by PTs and DDs (3 by PTs, 1 by DDs I think).

But still a decent turn .

Nice job Rader! Like I said before, GJ is playing like he alone has the offensive initiative.

Well, he invaded Honshu...

He now has 6000 AV ashore on Honshu.

Got to run for now, but I'll post the combat report (sorry it's so long)... What a crazy turn I expected him to invade down the coast, so I didn't set my bombers to attack him up north (plus, he destoyed or damaged most of them last turn, but that's another story ). But I did decide to try my luck at bombing Hakkodate. Lost most of the bombers and escorts commited to the operation, but did destroy a decent number of allied a/c on the ground. Now he's lost a lot of B-29s... he should be secure in his Honshu beachhead, but it cost him quite a bit vs. the coastal guns to get ashore...

Armageddon at northern Honshu.

My (noob) gut feeling is he landed to early before establishing air superiority.
To ride the Normandy thing a bit more. Its like landing in Normandy with the Luftwaffe still out in force in France

Your CD hit rates: about the best I see is 20%, many encounters are like 5%. .... then I see LCT's taking 19 and 14 hits from 8 & 12 cm guns.  

Guess I'd like to hear from an arty guy.  JWE?  Blackhorse?  Thoughts?  Got a lot of data here to look at ....

Now, how do I respond to this? I have 2 basic choices: to try to push him into the sea, or just try to contain him. I could probably build up about a 2:1 in assault value by sending in more units, but given his aircaft, shore bombardment, and better units, that is no guarantee that I could succeed in pushing him into the sea.

And if I try to do this, I necessarily strip all my other beach defenses, leaving him free to land anywhere else he wants. I hate to say it, but I'm actually strongly tempted to go with the containment only option... I think I'll just bring in only some minor reinforcements, plus lots of artillery and AA and let him try to dig me out from behind my forts (while trying to make it costly for him to reinforce his beachead). Meanwhile, I want to prevent him from landing elsewhere.

Yeah, the way I see it, I gotta use my army to stop his. If he wants to send in another 6000 AV, I will too. But if he dosen't, I've got to keep mine on alert for more invasions.

I'm curious how 12,000 AV vs. 12,000 AV would fare in the open. Probably really bloody on both sides He's going to have tank superiority, but I've got forts and will have lots of AT guns there.

Most interesting thing to me is that when you were shooting at mixed TFs of xAP/xAK with APDs, AKs or LS types, the x ships almost always caught it bad while the landing quality ships fared well.

If you contain. I don't see how he can keep supply coming without losing countless ships to your shore guns.

Yes, you have to be on defensive. I recall in original WITP, my opponent tried invasion of Marians but we ended in situation like this one. He was even unable to supply his units propertly, so after i month ive tried with attack


gosh, that was such a bad idea. I didnt get even close to 1:1 and lost 2 dozens of thousands men. All that because a stupid design "soldiers can hold tones of supply in their pockets" (and there is no way to destroy it) - actually im pretty sure that is not changed in Allied Edition, right Castor Troy? :P

So all you have to do is keep blocking his troops, and do not overcrowd base - keep rotate divisions from rear and invaded base (im sure he will start with air attacks on your ground units there).

Use your subs for some minelaying there, send MTBs there.


It looks his armored units suffered a lot (quite a lot destroyed vech's , it will take a while until they regain strength i guess).


You have lvl 9 forts there, right?

Amusingly your AA guns will fire in the defense if you are pressed, you might get better mileage out of them than your 47mm AT's. I suspect a lot of the destroyed "AFV" were motorised support, at least for the ones in company with the infantry carriers.

Applies for both sides. Winds me up no end that bypassed Japanese bases that have been cut off for months and sieged with heavy artillery always get at least one decent pop off.

On the other hand, a single deliberate attack removes all the supply in the soldiers pockets pretty much, so you only have to face the pain once.

Given what the shore guns did, I think he's in deep trouble unless he can achieve a proper breakout - at least capture the base. I suppose the alternative is a lot of suppression aimed at those shore guns, but in my experience its very hard to properly knock out coastal guns. And it looks like you got a LOT of coastal guns. As he's impatient and didn't break your aero industry, that'll make it all the harder for him I guess.

On the other hand, if he does capture the base, then the Japanese will be the ones in deep trouble... So yeah. Containment.

That's my take too. Bleeeeed 'em. Also, those LSTs took a major pounding, losing a sizeable proportion of their number. That's fewer LSTs available for the repeat (and landing supply, etc.)

At this point in the game you cannot go with just comparing AV for each side. The Allies have a lot better soft assault values and anti-armor values for their units. Any counter attack that you think will be a victory for you just by comparing Assault Values will lead to a Japanese defeat.

I don't think Rader is comparing AV to AV. Terrain and forts will be all-important in this fight, of course.

In a way the game is historical in that there is a lesson here. The Allies probably could have rushed Japan perhaps ending the war early, but win or lose the political costs of the casualties and the potential for disaster made it a no go. We gamers do not have to worry about the political fallout of an operation like this.

Some say the in VP terms the game is not balanced. One reason, and cure is to make if much more expensive for the Allies to take heavy casualties late in the war. Losing an American division or carrier should cost twice as much as it would have in 1942-and a Commonwealth division three times-for obvious reasons. I would like to see a more historical game vs the fantasy match that we all love and play. One way is to make the commanders sitting at home in front of computers pay for excessive losses. GJ can lose this battle and still sit back in Hokkaido and potentially win the game. But to lose a battle such as this...Well, if he were Roosevelt, they would have dragged him outside and lynched him-wheelchair and all. (No disrespect to one of my favorite presidents).
