Two days of unloading? If you have done your packing properly using 25 APAs you can unload everything plus 20-40k supply in 1 day!

About Burma,
I wouldn´t worry about supply if you built up Akyab properly. I have had no problems so far. That being said I´m not in monsoon yet. Walk down and grab Ramree and it will be even easier!

Grab Ramree +1
If your going to put guys in the open I like the hex north of Prome after siezing Ramree. It gives you three crossing hex sides. Doubtful he'll defend in the open or all three. I'm all about cutting off as much "tail" as you can.

Guys:  I agree Ramree Island is a good spot, but marching down the yellow road is a no go.  Koniu has a stack of 13 units blocking the path.  It consits of 6 IDs 1 tank div, arty and AA units.  Ramree has an ID present.  I have been bombing it off and on for 2 weeks or so.  I am planning an invasion.  I just need the ID and ships to make it a go.  ID and ships are on their way.

10-11th May

Carriers unknown,  I still think that the MKB is around Diego Garcia

China
Bombed

Shortlands
We sink an xAK.

North of Ndeni
A 5 ship TF of unknown ships is 10 hexs due north.  They are heading east towards the Gilberts.  I don't know fi this is a resupply TF, amphib, SAG or a bombardment TF headed towards Ndeni.

Op About Dam Time
Ships are on their way towards staging points.  2 subs were sighted off Christmas Island.  I only have some CVs and surface warships their the rest is at PP.

With FOW, weather and questionable nav search skills in the mix, it is hard to know if that really was a DB. It could have been a sub or AMC launched search aircraft. Can't take a chance though, so scurry away!

I looked around and saw a sub 7 hex west.  The other TF was spotted by a Nell.  The amphib has a 10/10 DL and the ASW has a 4/4 DL. I have about 8 TFs in the area and none of the others has been spotted even 2 others in the same hex.

Carriers unknown

China
Bombed

Burma
We catch some leaky CAP outside Mandalay.  2 Georges go down for no loses.

Solomons
Have recon of 2 six ship TFs at Rabual.  One contains a CA the other a CL.  HMMM wonder what these are for?  Bombardment?


Other news.  My bombing missions didn't fly, we will try tomorrow.

About Dam Time
TFs are heading back to PP.  2 of them have been sighted by a Jap DB again. They are 1 hex north of PP.  I'm thinking sub scout plane.  I a also wonderng if I shouldn't unload my troops then reload them.  What do you all think.

Bombed

Burma
We both bomb.  I hit Ramree killing a little over a hundred and he does nothing to our troops.

HI
E's work over one of our subs.  She will need some yardtime.

About Dam Time
I rearranged my search archs and find nothing in that area.  I guess it was a sub based patrol plane.  But we will wait a while before we take this on again.

Nice to see the Chinese score some fighter kills. I got some of them behind the stick of the P40s in '44 but they still faired poorly.

Bombed.  For 2 days a Jap tank Rgt attacks our cut off Chinese infantry.  Yesterday they attack and get a 1:2 today they get a 1:8 resulting in 26 AFVs disabled or distroyed.  I am wondering if I should attack the next turn.

Do NOT attack Japanese tanks of any type with Chinese troops. They have no A/T weapons in their infantry units.
On defence they can set up tank traps and such to disable a Japanese attack.

23rd May

Carriers unknown

China
Bombed

Burma
Japs bomb my stacks moving into postion around Mandalay and Magwee.  Koniu loses 22 Helens for no gain.

Op About Dam Time is a go.

CVs are 6 hexs away and amphib TFs are 12 hexs away.  One of the amphib TFs must of had to refuel during the nite.  I am hoping that in 2 days they will be disembarking troops or in the hex barring more refuels or something.  No signs of the KB.  I have been able to sneak a few picket ships into likely avenues of approach. I have roughly 100 B24D's ready to launch.  I am thinking of letting them fly tomorrow and hit the AF.  I only see 25 bombers and 11 Aux.  Onotoa looks empty from recon.  I have an IR and NBF loaded so I am moving them forward, hopeng for an easy grab.

Thanks Joc.  When I read your AAR.  I think you have done a fine job.  I don't say much in your AAR because you have a better grasp on the game than I do.  I don't want to give you bad advise.


Ok, I have looked in the manual and on the forum search.  Can someone remind me what the colors mean for Nav Search(blue green and black)?

I feel for you! Been there, done that...sucks BIG TIME!

To cheer you up a bit I can tell you that in about 1 years time you will be able to match the KB again! Your industry will start churning out about 2 CVEs per week! While a advance in CENTPAC is now out of the equation you are in a good position in Burma. The CV losses won´t change that. And its perfectly doable to jump up the NG coast. Quite rapidly in fact! You are still not defeated in China which means he will have to keep forces there.

If I were you I would try and link up with the Chinese and possible open the Burma road again. If you can do that and get supplies to the Chinese you can perhaps start to fight back in China. I suck at China but I´m assuming your troops are in pretty decent EXP now but lack supply?

Hang in there. Try to find joy in other areas!

I took a sneak peak at konius AAR. I am a bit curious to what went wrong with your strike???

Looks like about 2/3 of the DB never took off? And why so few Escorts for the ones that did take off? Messed up settings?

When I close with USN carriers I like to have a pair of ASW DDs 40nm in front performing ASW and picket duty. I'm not sure the ASW mission is so effective but they do seem to sop up some the incoming raiders.

ps Still like the position you hold, keep a clear head.

Hey guys thanks for the encouragement.  I had to step away from the game last nite.  Still not for sure why my escorts didn't fly.  I looked at one of the groups and it had a sucky leader.  I did count 11 Jap CVs though.  With all the planes shot down I am getting reports that he has more planes now than I had before the fight, so Koniu set up a good ambush.  I feel like such a failure.

24th May

Carriers in the Gilberts

Gilberts
We lose the Enterprise, North Carolina with 4 DDs. As you can see from above we will lose Yorktown and maybe a few other ships.  I'm am thinking of sending some of the damaged ships at the KB so the rest can flee.  I am also thinking of sending some DDs towards the KB in a possible nite attack.  My transports didn't get attacked because they still hadn't met up with my CVs.  For some reason they only went 3 hexs from the day before.  I had 48 fighers on LRCAP with them.  They could of helped out the CVs if I would of left them on CAP. I also lost 12 B24Ds while attacking Tabiteuea's AF.  KB is 5 hexs away, so not for sure if I can escape. 

China
Koniu attacked Chungking with Helens and lost 34 of them.

Ramree Island
We sweep and take down 12 Tojos for no loses.

I damage a sub off of Cooktown and he damages one of ours off the HI.  I will post combat report below.
