Joc:  Almost maxed out on the Indian Burma border bases.  Supply in Burma acceptable.  But can't sustain a lot of combat ops right now. Flight ops will be a problem, not for sure how many fighers I will be able to put in the air when I start to capture bases.  It looks like he is pulling back to the jungle hexs.  I will try and flank his units.  I expect with this I will spread his units out pretty thin.  That is something I want right now.  I am forming a big plan, but my plans usually suck and end in a horrible defeat. 

9th Jun 43

Carriers unknown


China
Bombed.

Burma
Jap units moving south.  We hit one and cause some damage.

DEI
Atleast one of the CL TFs was heading south thru the Straights of Macca.  The attacked the same sub but did no damage.  SS Cisco finds a TF of small Jap tankers and sinks 2 of them.  Holy cow folks.  So far my new war againist his tankes is working.  I'm sure this will force Koniu to bring in some air and sea ASW and reroute his TFs.  Thats fine I'll find away around whatever he does.

Solomons
We are landing troops on Goodenough Is. We put 8 hits on an RO boat leaving it on fire near PM, this can't be good.  Also I seen 2 DDs attacking this sub in the same sequences.

HI
We sink an xAK.

I have been listening to Bull.  So I am now going after his LI, Oil, and such and trying something different with my subs.

Cisco sinks its 3 small tanker.  One of our subs is damaged from NASW.

Bombers go out during the night and attack some LBs on patrol. 

Rest is quiet looking at putting together an op.

After reading Qballs AAR.  I decided to ask Koniu if he had maxed out any of his squadrons.  He said he had and that many of them were for training only, with only 2 in combat but they were broken down into fragments.  We discussed what we should do and I got confused with what we were doing.  I think I made him mad and it wasn't my intention.  I don't care if we max out squadrons or not. It has pros and cons for both sides.  I just didn't want to break the game. I know he mentioned it in his AAR.  He did tell me some stuff about what he wrote and was mentioned. Back to the war.

11th June 43

Carriers unknown

China
Bombed. A tank rgt attacks a withdrawing group of Chinese.

Burma
we close Bhamos AF and damage Lashio's AF.  Koniu closes Mandalay AF.  Nothing their to defend it so it's easy pickings for him.  Tomorrow I'm going after Prome.  I have sweeps LR CAP and escorts going in with 4Es and 2Es.  This will probably be the largest bombing raid of the war.  Thats if everything goes in as planned. Prome dosen't have any figters present.  We also hit Rangoons LI for a few hits.

Babo
We hit his oil fields for a few points.  I had my bombers to high, we will try again tomorrow.

Solomons
Helldivers fly at night and attack a Jap BB at Rabual.  They miss.  For some reason I guess it has high system damage it was smoking in the replay. I sent a group of bombers in during the day time to see what he had in the air.  Well he had pulled his fighters out for the day.  So we got a free bomb pass.  We made it count.  We sank 2 mini subs a regular sub and an AKE with a few port hits.  Not bad.  He told me he had fighters their now so no daytime bombing now. I am also sending in a sub to check the hex out.  Maybe I can get lucky with another TT into a BB.   I see a 3 ship TF heading towards my island bases around MB.  Don't really know what it is.  I might find out tomorrow.

Trying to get things into postion for upcoming ops.

Is there some kind of advantage to larger squadrons? Does it simply allow one to have more aircraft at the front? I'll take a peek in Q-Balls AAR when I get a chance. Don't forget report on "big raid"!

Kurt: More AC on the front bigger sweeps. 

12th June 43

Carriers unknown

China
Jap ID attacks and forces a retreat of several small LCUs in the north.

Burma
Koniu bombs some units in a rough hex.  We go after Prome 3 sweeps go in first and do Ok.  Corsairs and Tbolts do the best.  They find over a 100 Tojos and 22 Georges.  One 2E group goes in unescorted and gets hammered, the rest have some escorts with them but the still take a beating.  We do some damage to the AF.  We lose 14 P 38s, 15 Wellingtons, 9 hudsons 5 Hellcats, 5 beaus, 3 Corsairs and 3 Tbolts for 28 Tojos and 9 Georges.  I'm pretty sure that more Georges went down than that.

Babo
We hit his oil some more.

I take it that the late war air combat involving really large numbers of aircraft is still subject to Greyjoys AAR against the HI. I'm going to do some more reading and check back. Are you playing with a HR altitude band? I,m getting worried about the Tojo now.

Kurt: We are playing with the 2nd best MVR.  No need to worry about Tojos.  Their good planes but they can be handled.  P38s tear them up.  Corsairs did good this time around.  Layered CAP does good againist them.

12th June Continued

Solomons
AASW sinks one Dutch sub and heavily damages another.

Burma
Looked at the air loss totals again.  It shows us losing 60 total planes and Japs losing 62.  Counting everything up on my list Japs are short 13 planes, I bet they are Georges.  I hope, it would make me happier to know that we shot down more than what is shown.

Lets see if I have this right.  Babo has oil 7 (14) does that mean that the 14 is damaged and only 7 points is working?

Koniu and I talked he said that he did lose 9 total Georges but he lost 40 total Tojos.  I now have troops across the river moving to Magwee and the other base close to it. We spotted a large CL SAG moving towards Burma.

Solomons
We lose 2 subs the Dutch one hit by AASW yesterday and a fleet boat at Rabual.

Perth
We put a few dents on a Jap sub.

Rangoon LI 2 (39)

Koniu told me he is produceing around 20 fighters a day and hopes to expand that to 40.  Thats a lot, he did say that it was about what the Japs produced in RL.  Oh to be able to produce my own fighters.

China
Bombed

Manus
We bomb the AF and do moderate damage.  We also attack an amphib TF putting a 500 pounder into a CM and an xAK.  I have redirected a sub to go into the hex and take a shot at something.  I have also dispatced 2 Fletchers to make an attack on this TF.  They should hit it during the am phase.

NASW for both side sucked this turn.  Jap AASW hits 2 of our subs.  He's stepping up his AASW game in the Solomons.

China
Bombed.  Japs are still kicking my LCUs around in the North.

Burma
Opps a motor BDE moves into Magwee without AA support.  I expect it to get bombed tomorrow.  Most of my better fighters are stood down for replacements and rest.  I should be able to get some AA in 2 days.  So they will have to hunker down and take it.

Manus
Fleet boat sinks an xAK.  Our DDs didn't make it.  The TF left during the night, but I do see a TF at Hollandia.  As far as I can see they haven't been spotted so they will make a run up there.  I bet this will shock him seeing DDs in his back yard. Fighters are also seen here.  I expected this so now I am going to sweep.

HI
Fleet boat puts a TT into an AK, another sub puts 8 shells into an AKL.

Moving stuff around for 2 ops.  Op 1 "Tag your it"  OP 2 is named "Bullwinkle".  He gave me the idea to push on with a thought I have had.  More on these later.

Carriers unknown

Burma
Nothing.  AA unit reaches Magwe more units will arrive in the next few days.  To the east of Mandalay 5 Jap units wait in the jungle.  1 ID, 1 IR, 1 art the others I don't know.  I bombed these units plus the AFs at Lashio and Bhamo.  I will continue to bomb them hopeing to destroy their supplies.  It looks like units are withdrawing from northern Burma above Bhamo.  I am going to try and encircle some of these units.

Hollianda
Our DDs attack an amphib TF.  They don't do as much damage as I'd like.  I figure they sank an AP damaged another and left 2 AKs on fire before this TF escaped. 

Flying Fish shoots off about a dozen TTs at an AK.  Only 2 go bomb and only 2 are duds.  Her crew also miss when fireing their 3 in gun.  They will return to base for more training.

Thats about it for now. For those who read I will be on vacation for a week and won't be playing so no turns.  Some one try and keep me from page 3 or so.

Burma
Our troops are moving around.  Will try and post a map later.

Goodenough Island
Koniu sweeps with Tojos and Georges.  Koniu mentions in the email that he lost around 50 planes to my 20.  Most of what I lost was P 40Ks (10) Spit Vc and F4U1 5 each.

The rest of the turn is quiet.

Taung Gyi
I plan on encircling this base.  I will send a small tank unit with some Inf BDEs behind this base.  I will try and close off all the hex sides to this base and cut off the yellow road and supply to the units further up north.

Ramree Island
I am also pushing down the yellow road.  I would like to launch an attack from the land side instead of an amphib op, but if I have to I will.  I have a stack ready to move down the yellow road in the open hexs.  I hope he will fall back when I start moving them behind his big stack.  We will see what happens over here.

Solomons
Build up the island bases in prep for future operations.

Welcome home!

I like how New Guinea/Solomons looks! Where and what are you prepping for the future here? Finnschafen and/or Umboi Island is a crucial base and you should plan on taking one of them. But first Buka. Buke unlocks the whole region and allows you to move forward under heavy LBA.

Thanks guys.  Yes it was a good vacation.  I have a pic to post later when I get a chance to DL my wifes pics.

Joc: "Buka"  do you mean Buna".  I have units prepping or prepped for alot of the important bases around NG and the Solomons.

18th June 43

Carriers unknown

Burma
Sweeps and refinery bombings at Magwee.   I can't stop it from happening right now.  Don't have the supply to base fighters here yet.

NG/Solomons
Units are prepping and being positioned along with ships and supplies.  Just waiting to build up some bases for the push.

Whoops Buna I mean yes!

Make sure you are already prepping for the targets after Buna. I try to think where will be and what I want invade in 100 days. Always prepp more than you think you will need because you never know if your opponent reinforces. It sucks getting stalled somewhere and don´t have any reinforcements to send in. Because you will be LBA dependent you can´t really bypass any bases so if you get stuck at a base your whole advance gets stuck.

Good luck!

Hansa Bay is an absolutely critical together with Manus. Hansa for the only lvl 9 AF on the coast and Manus for the only level 7 Harbour. Make sure you start planning for their capture. How much forces have you devoted to this advance?

Burma
Chinese troops enters Meiktila, the rest of the Allied units should be their in a day or 2.  A Jap unit as appeared in the hex north of Taung Gyi.  I will have to find out what it is.  We will bomb the retreating troops around Bhamo. 

NG
Judys attack my 2 DDs sailing back to MB.  21 Judys attacked and only 2 made it home.  Good day for us.  Our DDs still aren't out of danger yet.  I see a 4 ship TF moaving towards them.  I have set up a welcome party for them 46 SBDs with 46 fighters.  I also have some Venturas on night attack.

Mostly messing with pilots and logistics.

Question guys.  I have never done a bombardment during the day.  Its 10 hexs to the target.  My ships can make 9 at night.  So if I set them to bombard they will bombard during the day or just sit in the hex till the next night phase?  Am I missing something?

I would like some clarification as well, all I can find is 6.2.5 ie. TF will stand off until nightfall, run in at ful speed under cover of darkness, and run out again.
