Kurt: I am not committing to any major offenses just sitting tight letting him come to me. I would like to see him attack in a few places and bust up his troops but will take the normal bombardments.  I have changed some leaders.  China can be fun if your not getting your butt kicked.  IMHO a good Jap player can take it, but then he/she will leave other areas are unprotected.  So China is a trade off for the Allies. 

Op Shoestring
I have 2 ID's 1 US and 1 Aus, 1 Aus BDE, 1 NZ BDE, 2 combat Eng units, 1 tank, 1 port SVC unit, 2 Art this will probably be my first wave.  Follow on will have 2 AA (one might go in with the assualt wave) 2 BF's, CD, air HQ, and some more Eng units.  I have more than enough fighters to cover the base once my AF is up.  I figure it will take a while to take the base.  The last time I reconned the base it had maybe 2 BDE's and BF's.  If this op goes right I should catch Koniu off guard and rattle his cage.

AF and port bombed.

Slow turn.

I can't seem to get my subs to unload on the small dot base next to Koepang.  Wonder if I need some naval support?

Maybe they need a port to unload?? I know tankers cannot unload at a dot base - maybe the same for transport subs? I have never been able to get raider units to board a sub but one would think they could unload without a port.

BBfanboy:  Only commando (parachute units) units can load onto subs.  Raiders are not considered commando units in AE. I was thinking that they might need a port.  But IRL they shouldn't need it, but this is a game so maybe you are right.  I am now trying to fly in supplies by transport planes.

Also supplies are starting to reach my North Burma bases.  Yay.

I completely agree that offensive action by the Chinese is often not worth the risk. Keep from being enveloped or cut off and force him to attack under 1:1 in good terrain. I think your situation is promising given the time frame on all fronts. Oh the wonderful toys rolling off the assembly lines.... Just a quick note.

Kurt:  I can't wait till I get those new toys.  Right now I have alot of stuff moving for my upcoming ops.  So turns shouldn't take me long, but I feel like I'm not doing anything.  Every turn I look for some way to hurt him, and some of those end up hurting myself instead.  But I am having a blast playing.

It was all navy today.

Cox's Bazar
We put one good hit on a sub.

Derby
Jap SAG misses an xAKL TF by one hex.  It may attack it tonite but not for sure, I have no DL on my TF.  I am moving a SAG and some bombers into the area.

Marshall's
Jap SAG attacks my picket ships.  2 CA's spotted usually travel with the KB.  I am wondering if the KB is near and might try a raid on Johnston island.  PG Sacramento puts 3 shells into a DD leaving it with heavy fires before she sinks.

Johnston
Subs attack the port.  AVD lands one hit.  DDs miss.

Jap sub sinks an xAK.

4DD's sink 2 KVs.  Our bombers don't fly for some reason.

Wotje
Jap SAG sinks an AM and 4 xAKs.  Japs bomb AF and port.

Johnston
We damage a Jap sub 10 hits. 

I am seeing more activity in N Oz now that kinda bothers me.  But the mission is still a go.

Taung Gyi
P38's sweep and find Tojo's, Oscar IIa's, and Nicks.  We lose 10 P38's for 15 Tojo's, 11 Nicks, 5 Oscars.  Bombers go in unescorted and in small packs.  Several are damaged but none are shot down.  We plaster the runway, but the Japs were flying from Meiktila.  Recon shows that Koniu has spreadout his fighters.  3 different bases now show fighters are present.  This is a win.  Now I will start to kill his planes.  4 groups of Hurri IIc's will sweep Meiktila tomorrow.  Only 26 fighters are shown to be stationed here at this moment, and I would say their moral would have to be low after the beathing they took today.  P38s will stand down to fix and replace AC.  I only have 23 P 38E's left, these planes might be turned over to perform CAP instead of sweeps. I will replace them with P38G's.

I am also seeing more supply make it way down into Northern Burma.

Java
Dutch sub sinks a PB.

Coco's
3.5 forts with 250 AV.

Johnston Is
Jap subs are all over the place.  Naval and air ASW are present and working.  8th ID is prepping for this location.  He will have to take my Marshall Is. bases first.

Mektila
We bomb the AF and ground units.  Minimal damage to the AF but kill over 300 Japs.

Bataan Is
One of our subs puts a live (it go boom)TT into a big Jap tanker.

Coco's
Port Bombed.

Secret DEI base
Swept, the gig is up.

Maloelap
AF bombed. I am now seeing 10th ID being prepped for it, but no support units prepping.

Johnston Is
SC's report hitting a sub has been hit 9 times with heavy damage.


Thoughts
Marshall Islands, AF's are closed and invasions are coming.  Not for sure what I can do to keep these bases.  KB has been stationed at Truk.  Have thought about invading Eniwetok, but with the KB so close I haven't done it.

If the Kido Butai is intact that is a wise move. When you plan to face the mobile force try everything you can to trick it or lure it into an LBA-USCV sandwich. It is an IJN ball breaker when you can get 500-600 a/c over it. It broke my opponents will to fight when he lost 4CVs and several CVLs to one US CV. I faced off with him with 4CVs, 3-4 CVLs and maybe 6-7 squadrons of USN land based strike a/c. By the time the torpedo planes found the KB it was a smoking wreck and even the brave fish droppers scored well. I think I could have saved the Essex if I had taken her off mission speed. She only had 35 floatation damage, but sank in one turn. "engine compartment open to the sea" a really sucky message.

We nav bomb and miss a CA and DD.  Recon shows 8 units with 28.5K.  This is a big change since last time I reconned this base.  Op Shoestring maybe put on hold for additional units.  Bombing will happen tomorrow to see what units are present.

Maloelap
4 xAKs and a DD are sunk by Kates.  Must be a small carrier TF.  Nav search has not picked it up yet.

I need to assess this situation.

According to Cap Mandrake's AAR, that is just M&M Enterprises taking its cut!
Other than that, some [witpqs??] have suggested that shutting off HI in Oz can affect aircraft production on the US WC. No one has yet done a specific test of that notion, though. I think the [inconclusive] discussion was in NY59Giants' AAR.

Thanks BBfanboy.  I have an issue with that.  Japs can make thousands of AC above what they could of done in real life and I get stuck with less.  Oz HI is still on and producing. I'm pretty sure I have enough HI.

Drastic solution you had there - backtracking the game to Nov. 3 to save that sub!
AFAIK there is nothing to be done for an out of fuel sub except sail it to the nearest friendly port, leave it as a static defence for the hex, or scuttle it.
Subs are pretty tough so unless it is really far from a friendly base, it should eventually make it there with some system damage. Be sure to change the sub's home base to the target fuelling base or it will try to divert to the normal home base when system damage reaches 25 or so.

China
Bombed.  Koniu shoots down some P66's and AVG P40's.

Burma
Lashio and Bhamo AFs are closed down in 2 days.  Koniu was not very happy about this.  He has moved his fighters forward.  I am also seeing an 8 ship TF moving towards Akyab.  Might be a bombardment group.  I might have a few suprises waiting for him.

Coco
Bombed.

Maloelap/Wotje
Bombed.  Jap SAG sinks a supply TF (2 DMS's and 4 xAKs).  In return our carriers attack this SAG (2CA's, 2 CL's, and 2 DD's).  We sink the CA Nachi, heavlily damage CA Chikuma, CL's Isuzu, Abuluma, and a DD.  15 Jakes are reported destroyed 8 by ground.  Koniu is distraut over this action.  He asked if this was a trap or was I doing something around the Marshall's.    Time for some psyops.  I will follow up with more strikes tomorrow from my carriers.  I see a lot of units prepping for Wotje and Maloelap.  Mostly ID's.  I think if I can keep hitting him he will stop his invasion plans for the Northern Marshall's.  Oh yea Bettys flew from Roi Namur and damaged 2 CA's.  Not nice.  They are limping back to PH.  Fighters are covering them as we speak.
