The intent:
1.) delay any expansion in SoPac through June.
2.) neutralize an enemy depot/hub
3.) obtain short term air superiority in theater to allow final preperations for OpGaff
4.) Draw KB into an LBA trap

Question on the P38s.
The two squadrons I have I assumed can not be loaded on ships nor transfered from V bomber cmd, How do you get P38s into theater? They are [R] and greyed out.

What sqd are they in?  You may have to replace them with 25 other planes.  There are some old Mohawks in PH that you can replace.  Alfred told me that with sqds that don't withdraw, you can bring in 1 ac to replace 25.  And it works.

Zulu, are you playing with PDU off?  If so, there are three P-38E squadrons assigned to permanently restricted West Coast HQs that you can't "buy" with political points; also, I don't think you have an upgrade path until much later in the game.  Meaning:  those P-38Es are "stuck in the good ol' USA" for quite some time.  They're there.  You know they're there.  You want them.  You could really use them.  But some crazy son of a gun in Washington thinks it's a good idea to have some top-quality fighters based in the USA.

As I would expect from the fellers in DC. Which probably explains why they only get half a peace sign when the situtation avails itself. Ill have to do some research to see when they appeared in the conflict. SitRep below: subs leaving Pearl for patrol zones to support OpBarb.



Damn it man 1942

I assume he has PDU on, I have to check. I have done nothing with Allied production (huge mistake?) as I have all factories to upgrade from the start. My assumption is based on a problem he emailed me about 45 days ago in game time about not producing Japanese infantry squads for ten days. In truth I assumed there was little for me to do but wait.

You have no production to manage.  Just pilot training and plane switching if PDU is on.  If you need help ask me I will help you out for switching planes.

Thanks, I have been doing alot of upgrades. The B17E loses some range but the punch is awesome. On one eight plane raid over Rabaul B17Es shot down three zeros with only damage. By April the pools really start to fill. I may be back at you after I get the next turn back. We just hit turn 116. April fools 1942.

On the "uglier" side: Singapore will join Bataan with zero supply in the next few days. Palembang is surrounded, there will be no relief effort. Rangoon is also cut off, but holding and in supply. Many of my groups which have reached
veteran status are close to withdrawl dates. Many ships are under going refits, my guess about thirty. 100% prep done for LCUs in OpFishhook pay off; we dont lose a man during the landings. Enterprise is less than week more pierside for her AA upgrades and Lex and York are under ten days. April 2nd is a milestone for the Allies as our CAP in Burma downs Oscars in our favor (first time we have come out on top of a Jap sweep) and we get our first ace.

April 4
Port Morseby shut down in two days, happened right after the withdrawl dates on fighters. I have to be more careful with timing.

Congrats with the ace and on the subs.  Your doing a good job with that.  You know with your air groups you can pull out your pilots before you withdraw them?

I doubt my thinking is right on this but I have allowed pilots to withdraw with aircraft with the delay to the pools to build my reserve like a savings account. I ran such a poor air war from December 7th to mid February I had very few rookies to draw on. So the survivors of the decimated groups were little more than green. I have a very solid rookie base now with somewhere over 200 pilots trained in defense and air to air in the 60's in P39s and second line ac serving in the Army air corp. I did pull some Bataan vets with a kill or two and high inspiration into the training (on map sqds) groups. Un fortunately I never really obtained a decent cadre due to my ineptitude planning Ops early. Getting Morseby shut down was all my fault. I hope I can avert the same thing in Burma as Brittish Sqds are due to pull out anyday. Its been very quiet in the AAR as most everything is prepping. I still need ten to fourteen days to gather strength and finish refits. How have you done early with A2A? I hope you have had better luck. The god side is I still hold Bataan, Singers, Palembang and Rangoon. Its April 7th. I may be able to bleed him soon if these defenders cut off in his rear can hold through the month.

Two different outcomes for pilots in squadrons scheduled to withdraw.

1. Squadrons scheduled to withdraw but also scheduled to return in the future - the pilots and airframes in the squadron at the point in time of being withdrawn are moved to the pools.

2. Squadrons scheduled to withdraw but will never return, ie a permanent withdrawal - the pilots and airframes in the squadron at the point in time of being withdrawn are permanently lost, they do not get moved to the pools.

roger that. Why are the withdrawl and dispand dates gray here? I have to withdraw tomorrow.




Just thought of something, I may have a damaged fragment in Rangoon. Would this prevent me from meeting withdrawl criteria, crap wheres my book.

Does this unit have a fragment somewhere. If there is one plane at another base you can't withdraw it.

I will also let pilots go with sqds that will withdraw to the pool, but as Alfred said some of them don't, so be careful. My air war sucks. Koniu is good with his air, really good. He always sweeps first with lots of fighters, then sweeps some more, then escorts his bombers with lots of fighters. He is slowly moving forward with his air but he destroys anything infront of him. I have a few aces but not many (3).

Your doing better with Singers, I will lose that soon. Getting PM shut down. That will happen if he wants it bad enough. But it is a learning exp. Keep charing along you don't seem to be doing bad to me. Keep the faith brother.

you were right, I had a fragment in Rangoon. I was able to disband that one and then it let me withdrawl the unit. Heres another one. Do I have to pay PPs to get this to San Diego from Canada then more PPs to get it to Australia? It shows no transfer locations as is from Victoria.

April 10th
CnCPac: major refitting in prep for OpBarb. Enterprise is ready, York and Lex still some time out, the DDs for Sara are 18 days in the yards still plus ready time.
SoPac: Suva and Numea are growing fast. Ill post the map shortly. We are on Ndeni and Luganville is also growing with a an AF now and some rookie air cover.
Australia: Why do you guys call it Oz? Port Morseby repaired only 4 pts of runway damage It still has 50 service damage. Sara is nearing completion of refit at Sydney with her escorts.
DEI: Japs landed in central Java and they have a cement grip on the northern tip. Palembang still holds as well as Singers with 850 really hungry AV. The Dutch AF is spent and can only conduct limited recon and search.
Bataan: Man I feel for those guys. Wish I could evac the USA units to Cebu. They still hold.
Eastern Australia: Perth now at 900AV with 100K supply and alot of fuel. Anyone know how much fuel Aussie land needs a month?
Burma: Rangoon holds with alot less AV than I think it should. When it falls I think I have a month worth of delaying action before India sees any threat. Indias Ledo line is strengthening by the hour.
China: I dont want to talk about it! Ill post a map soon and look for ideas.

Yes, it's a restricted unit. You can just as easily get it to Oz via boat from Victoria. Both places you would have to move it by boat. One thing to keep an eye out for. You get some Canadian air units scattered around teh map. You might want to keep atleast one home to train pilots. Just a thought

No he can't. Restricted air units cannot be placed on a ship. They can only be moved to another airfield attached to the same restricted command.

Zuluhour must spend the PPs to attach the unit to an unrestricted command otherwise that unit "ain't" leaving Victoria ever. Once will suffice.

danke, Alfred. It looked like it was already attached to the Austalians and I just wanted to move it there. I will attach it to II fighter command and strat move it to San Diego and load it there. Any ideas as to what the best engineers are for building ports? I have to get Ndeni up to at least a 1. I think its building about 2% a day with the construction guys I have there. I have a USN base force in route. Are the Port Serv. Dets good at it?

April 11th
IJN subs deep six a tanker off Suva and just miss an English CV off Columbo. Both subs receive a little ventilation. 2 hits each.
Port Moresby gets runways down to 38, service still showing 50 damage.
AVG bugs out of Rangoon and misses two sweeps by Oscars and Zeros, lots of'em.
IJA lands in the central phillipines, shows 600+ ashore, I think his bonus is done; I counter attack at Rgt strength using shock, we'll see.
Large TF with CV support leaves with supply, aircraft, fuel and two Marine Rgts from the east coast tomorrow.

For building infrastructure, it is a democracy. All engineers are created equal and are equally productive. Remember though that an engineer vehicle provides the labour of 5 engineers.

Have a look at the TOE of a Port Serv. Detachment. If you find an engineer there, then he will build.

Of course the more engineers a unit has, provided adeaute supply is maintained, then the quicker goes the construction. There is eventually the law of diminishing returns in play, but that won't be confronted in 1942.

Thanks again, I wil send D Det along with another base force from Suva. I have alot of support there with more on the way. As I have the fuel and supply at Suva and Numea up (100K supply/50K fuel each) I will detach a BatDiv to lurk 200nm or so south of Suva now for some added support (probably more moral type) and get some theater sub support in there as well. I have one more SubDiv to form at Pearl and they will operate in SoPac.

The Royal Navy puts to sea in the Bay of Bengal. Looking to put a bombardment on Rangoon. We will send a picket out first, I dont think he is using naval search there.
Port Morseby still at 50% service damage and 30% runway. The IJA has landed on two more bases of New Guinea.
Its about to get real hot in three theaters.

Japs turning their attention to New Guinea. Port Porseby hit hard, runway damage may not be repairable under the conditions at present.
