Question guys. I just had a SAG move from Tagula Island to Rabual without orders to do so. Orders were to go to Townsville and refuel. TF CO didn't really have a high aggression rating either. What the hell happened. React is to 0 also.



BB: funny. I meant actress to play Wonder Woman. I would play with Wonder Woman.

That SAG movement seems like a bug. The only thing close to it is when a TF flees from an enemy threat like a CV TF south of it, even though you have not detected it yet. This usually happens with merchant vessels, not fighting ships. And Rabaul is a long way off - they would have had to go at max speed.

Have you checked Capt. Bode's non-leader traits? Is he above 75 on the traitor scale? Is he a sex maniac going to Rabaul to visit a "comfort woman"? Does he have suicidal tendencies? A martyr complex? A Hollywood hero I-can-do-anything-and never-get-hurt persona?

Re: Wonder Woman - ten years ago I would have said Demi Moore, but not so sure computer enhancement could help the illusion now! Most of the athletic female actors are too slim, the buxom ones lack the tiny waist. By Hera, I have no other ideas!

30th June 43

Carriers unknown

China
Bombed

Burma
We force the Nav guard unit to retreat.

Solomons
We lose 2 CAs and 3 DDs. Koniu has a 3 BB SAG and a 4 CA SAG at Rabual with 300 fighters for CAP.

Marshalls
Nav search finds our supply TFs. This op has been suspended.


I wonder if Koniu will fight for Buna and Woodlark. I will have to find out.

Koniu was nice to redo the turn but it was the same identical turn. So I made the mistake somewhere.

DOCUP,

I don´t quite understand what is the problem with TF 271 which perplexes you.

1. On 28 June, was TF 271 a Bombardment TF?

2. On 28 June, what were the destination and home ports set of the TF?

3. Did the TF get intercepted by enemy air/naval forces at Rabaul?

4. Is enemy air present in quantity to the west of Tagula island?

5. What speed setting did you have the TF on as at 28 June?

6. How much fuel did Tagula island have as at 28 June?


Both your speed setting and default routing orders would encourage the TF to head to a fuel source. Particularly if it converted from Bombardment and is surrounded by strong enemy airpower.

1. On 28 June, was TF 271 a Bombardment TF?
This TF was not a Bombardment TF on the 28th or for a long time. It was covering an Amphib TF at Tagula island.

2. On 28 June, what were the destination and home ports set of the TF?
Patroling Tagula island. Home port was Milne Bay.

3. Did the TF get intercepted by enemy air/naval forces at Rabaul?
No naval or air intercepts.

4. Is enemy air present in quantity to the west of Tagula island?
None.

5. What speed setting did you have the TF on as at 28 June?
Full speed.

6. How much fuel did Tagula island have as at 28 June?
No fuel at Tagula.

TF 271 has been a SAG for awhile now. It was patrolling Tagula island, covering an amphib TF unloading and loading different troops. The amphib TF embarked all troops and headed to Oz. I forgot to set TF 271 destination but had home port set to Townsville to refuel. I don't know why the speed was set at Full speed but it was. On the 30th it ran straight to Rabual. I think the problem is that I didn't set a destination, but I want to make sure as to not make the same mistake again. There was no enemy presence west of Tagula or air attacks on TF 271 it just went straight to Rabual.

1st July 43

Nothing really happened.

Koniu has 2 strong SAGs at Rabual a SAG with 3 BBs and one with 4 CAs. I need to think of a way to bring them out and damage them. I bet he has them there to attack any attempts to take Buna or Woodlark.

Burma
He pulled his stack back 1 hex from Ramree Island. I now have a clear shot to attack Ramree from the land. That's what I am going to do. Just need to get my troops into place and this will happen.

I would send a cruiser force that appears to be for bombardment to the normal jumping off point to get to Buna for night bombardment. On the same turn it arrives at that point, flood the area between Rabaul and Buna with subs. Then send your TF home without bombarding. He will assume you are going to bombard and send his SCTFs into your sub trap.

5th July 43

Carriers unknown

China
Bombed. Its amazing how those Jap bombers can kill so many with their small bombs and my bombers kill so few.

Burma
Prome, we attack the AF. Opps I let Koniu fix it. We find a bunch of Tojos. P47s go in first and get slaughtered, then the 2 P 38 sqds go in and do ok. We lose 13 P 47s and 8 P 38s for 39 Tojo IIc's, and 14 IIa's. We also lose a bunch of 2Es. 16 Blenvheins, 12 B 25C's, and 4 Wellingtons. We do score some hits on the AF. It says its at 86 damage but yesterday it said it was at 71 also. We bombard Ramree for 12 dead. What am I doing wrong?

Turk
Lots of radio traffic here. Sub sinks 2 LBs with its deck guns today. I send a sub into Turks hex to see what was home and it got DC'd. She will make it home for repairs.

Solomons
Recon shows a CV present. HMMMM whats going on here?


Radio call sign of CVE Hosho detected at 147,75. Sig Net picked this up today. This is up in NorPac. Is he trying for an invasion of the Aleutians? Depending on the island. I will take this. Adak has 6 forts with 342AV and CD guns, Amichita has 6 forts with 250 AV and CD guns. I have a bunch of fighers and DBs based up their with some subs.

I'm going after Prome again. Almost 100 fighters will sweep with 50 fighters as bomber escort. I am also planning a move in the Solomons when the moon is low again. I might have everything in place by then.

6th July 43

Carriers unknown

China
Bombed

Burma
Prome AF is closed down. No resistance.

Rangoon
Ships reported. Going to try and mine the port during the day and night.

Rabual
443 fighters reported. Dang. CVs are still reported. Going to mine the port at night by bombers. I've not had any luck with aerial mining but need to try. A sub will investigate the hex also. I figure I will lose it with mines and ships in the hex. Might get lucky.

Shortlands
AF bombed.

Gatsma
86 fighers reported here today. I am going to try and sweep with P 38s and Corsairs. 2 Sqds of each.
PM
AF bombed.

Setting up future ops.

7-8th July 43

Carriers unknown Possibly Turk

China
Bombed

Burma
We close the Promes AF. We also lose some Beaufighters.

Biak
We drop some Mk 13 mines and actually sink an aMC with a mine. Go figure we scored a hit.

Solomons
On the 7th we both sweep and find nothing. MB is bombarded on the 8th by 3 BBs, 3 CLs. They sink several xAKs dropping off supplies and destroy 17 AC with moderate damage to the island’s facilities. I'm expecting a sweep tomorrow. Rabual I sent in a sub on the 7th and she sinks an aMC. We’ve had 2 subs damaged in the last 2 days, but nothing major.
Jap loses
2 CS
4 CA’s
5 CL’s
54 DDs
14 DMS’s
7 aMC’s

By my count there should be around 7 BB’s (2 of which I think are in shipyards) 10 CA’s and 12 CLs roaming around the Pacific with the KB still intact.
Also we have sunk 16 ships by mines. I need to figure out where everything is. If my signet is right a CVE/L is between PH and the Aleutians.

I wonder where Koniu’s line in the sand is. Will he fight for Woodlark Island?

9-11th July 43

Carriers unknown

China
Bombed and a few LCUs getting smacked around by the Japs.

Burma
We hit Prome again.

Solomons
Shortlands is hit again. I want to keep Prome and Shortlands AFs closed.

A fleet boat takes mod damage, while patrolling around Singers.

I can't remember much else going on the last few turns. 2 Weeks ago my computer crashed. Last week my internet started to be unstable and then just went out. Well my neighbor had accidently mowed my internet cable. So Now I'm back.

JeffK: I haven't played for a 2 weeks. Still trying to figure things out. Its fun but not as fun as AE. I've been spending most of my free time fishing or doing honey do things. Greyjoy and I was in the same spelling class. Don't make fun of us.

I only have the RP. But its a bloody day over Prome.

Kurt: I am only in the Marshalls. Gilberts was my last CV clash that I lost.

Joc: Down below.

Koniu said that he lost 100 fighters. He said that his intel is showing that I lost 17 4Es, and 43 2Es. I know the 2Es isn't right only 32 flew. He said that I lost 47 fighters. 10 P47s, 20 P38s the rest were Corsairs, Hellcats, Beaufighters, and Cobras. the air battles with the Corsairs looked funny to me. For some reason they were escorted by Beaufighters and Cobras.

I count around 14 Jap fighter groups over Prome. They had good warning from radar or something.

Koniu tried to bomb Maloelap again. He lost several more planes and a bunch damaged. I have 2 resupply TF's a day out.

Joc: I am getting ready to move on Woodlark in the Solomons. I am waiting for the moonlight to go down before I do the invasion. My resupply missions in the Marshalls is hopefully keeping a few ships around that area. I am letting my CVE's be spotted by Jap Nav search.

Woodlark has 2 units present. One is a BF the other is a Nav Guard unit. The problem is Koniu has been keeping around 500 fighters at Rabual. I also think the KB might be at Truk (are you happy Jeff)

Burma
I am moving units around and looking for a week spot. The yellow road from Taung Gyi has an ID in each hex with one other unit. I think most are Art units. Ramree Island has an ID present. I am going to attack from the land side.

I have a few others that I am moving assets to or thinking about. IE Koepang area. I just haven't thought it all the way thru yet.

I think Joc could be my neighbor with that redneck gold chain red hair and read goatee. I'll say he is a West Virginian.

Thanks for the maps Joe, I read quite a few AARs and have a hard time keeping track.
