How do I isolate a quote? (just a part of a previous post)


Just saw this and did not see a reply, so I will offer two methods:

1. Use the quote button to put the whole quote on your posting, then highlight and delete the portions you do not want
to include in your post. The author attribution will be included when you use the quote button.



Thanks BB! I'll use method #1 for now.

Kurt: No baby yet.  Anytime now. 

Been busy with RL.  Yea bulding baby stuff painting a room pink.  Now to the game.

10th Mar 44

China
I did a small Offensive in the south.  Then the Japs brought in reinforcements and stopped me.  Then they started bombing my troops and bases.

Burma
Japs have swept Magwe (a few times) Ramree Is, and Akyab with Frank r's.  Loses for the Frank r 200 Tojos 13.  Now for the Allies total P40s 30, P39 17, P51A 15, Hellcats 19, P38 20, P47 20, Hurr IIC 19, Spit VC 6, Spit III 6 and F4 35.  Around 190 total.  I hope Koniu has lost a lot of good pilots.  I have also bombed some of his ground troops.  I lost about 40 2 E bombers in these attacks.  I have also shot down some more Franks, and Tojos from my sweeps.  Japs withdraw from Taung Gyi.  They are camped out to the south of the base.  I did a DA 2 turns ago I suffered 7k worth of casualties to his 1k.  Almost all of mine were from a Chinese corp.  My troops will attack again today.  Other Jap troops are retreating down the yellow road from Taung Gyi.  They have crossed the river we crossed also with mod casualities.  I did get a commando unit behind this stack.  But Koniu got an IR to the hex and has been trying to dislodge my unit for 2 shock attacks now.  My commandos are holding strong despite the shock attacks and air bombings.  Japs tried a 6k attack on my troops, not a good idea, they lost 45 Helens to flak.

Timor AO
We capture Lautem and Dili. 

Solomons
I did something stupid and sent out a small SAG after a Jap SAG and got beat.  I lost 2 modern CLs and 2 DDs for 3 Jap DDs.  I hate Long Lance TTs.

Miline Bay
Frank r swept the base and chewed us a new one.  We lost P40 types 24, Hurri IIC 13, FMs 7, Spit VC 7, Spit III 1.  3 Jap DD stop by they sink 1 PT boat and my PT boat sinks one DD.

Ships that have been sunk:  Allied subs sink an 2 xAK, TK, E,  and a PB.  We also damage an AP and 2 CLs.  Both these CLs where damaged at base I can't remember the name.  Its around the Marshalls. We lose an xAK to a sub and a sub to naval ASW.

Can't remember anything else in the other area. I should proof read this but I need to get in the shower.

How are your pools doing? You have to keep an close eye on those and don´t waste planes just for the sake of sweeping. You can never wear down the Japanese air force so when you do something offensively it has to have a purpose.

3/44 you get the P47-25. I think it is 175 per month but beware as it only runs for 4 months. You have to make that stretch until 11/44 when the P51D kicks in. Its an awesome plane though! . If you play by the 2nd MVR band HR you can stack that on top of everything the Japs have. But in the period between the P47-25 and P51D that you are stuck with only 80 P38s and 30 P51Bs USAAF planes. Only plane you get in that time in decent numbers are the Hellcat but against Franks and Sams its outdated.

I found that mid to late 44 my fighter pools where more critical then any other period of the game aside from the first 6 months. Especially late 44 everything was dry.




+1 on this. You have to plan ahead and save some P47s for a rainy day.

Also from the Allied side. Every American bomber unit expands on 1/45. This is not a bad thing but make sure you have plenty of trained bomber pilots in the pool. I missed it and got caught with not enough pilots. Took me some months to recover. However, it can be said that by this time Allied bombers are all over the place anyways so it is not the end of the world. You don't have to have the high skilled pilots. I find that bomber pilots trained up to about 50 bombing skill do just fine. You reach a point where you just want some average jocks to fill the seats.

Crsutton: Thanks, I have 127 P 47D2, and 82 D25. Bomber pilots I am working on it.



15 Mar 44



Burma

Jap IR dislodges my Indian paratroopers. They put up a good fight. The road is now open for the ID and other units to retreat. Tomorrow I will have 3 IDs and several Inf BDEs with 2 armor units. Tomorrow I am sending in some fighters and bombers. We did a 2 more attacks on the stack south of Taung Gyi. One of my tank units got clobbered in this attack. The rest of my units are in pretty good shape. I think I have knocked his IDs down to the high 200 or low 300 AV. We lose 2.5k while the Japs lose 3.6. I have lost more vehicles though.



Timor AO

Quiet right now.



Lae

Franks sweep I lose 14 P 39s and 12 P40s for 16 Franks. I thought I did better than this as I watched the replay.



Got some things in the working. I am trying to think a big op to help shorten the war.

Something Mar 44

Burma
Bad day to be a Brit 2E pilot.  I lose 51 Brit 2E planes and 11 Oz 2Es in one day attacking in Burma and a small dot base one hex north of Lautem.  My fighters do shoot down 18 Tojos, 10 Georges, and 23 Franks for 6 of each of the following planes, Corsair, P 47 and P 38s. We did a DA on the Jap ID and tank rgt to the east of Taung Gyi.  Not bad, will rest a day or 2 then try it again.  Koniu has sub planes and nav search way out into the Bay of Bengal.

Timor
Mentioned above.

Question:  When do the Kamis activate and Russians?  Also is it 15 hexs from the listed citys?

Russian activation only occurs if the AV in Manchuria drops below 8000 (and I think a dice roll is also involved so that it is not automatic), or
when Japan violates Russian territory by overflight or invasion or naval forces in a Russian base hex.

I think Kamikazes are not available until Jan. 1944, but I forget the details of bases and distances. You could
probably find it on the War Room section using a search like "kamikaze activation".

Kamis are "Sea hexes" from the mentioned bases. You will have to manually count them. They changed the distance in some patch I believe. Can´t remember the actual number but its probably in my AAR somewhere.

Oh, hope the baby arrives soon.

Joc: Wife is due anyday now. Dialated to 2 cms 50% effaced lost her plug and having false labor.



19th Mar 44



China

Might be some combat coming soon.



Burma

We did 2 DA. One south of Taung Gyi and one to the east of Taung Gyi. I will post CR for those. Ground combat eludes me. My men are fried, so I figure his are too. But his keep fighting. I have 3 units I have to withdraw and 2 of them are tank units. The hex south of Taung Gyi is killing me. I am rotating my units from attacks and his units are taking it on the chin and keep standing tall. How? I try and pull off a CAP trap and sweep at the same hex. I find nothing but do get to see lots of Allied AC in one sweep.



Timor

Koepang gets paid a visit from my 4Es. 13 Georges are toasted on the ground for almost 200 runway hits.

Solomons
I forgot to stand down a Spitfire unit.  It sweeps Gasmata and finds 236 Jap fighters on LRCAP.  We lose 4 Spits for 12 Georges, 6 Tojos, 10 Oscars and 4 Franks.  Recon shows 396 fighters at Rabual.  After seeing what he had on LRCAP I am thinking of sending in some sweeps.  Port has 22 ships in it.  I have 36 F4s, 50 P 47s, 40 Hellcats, 16 Spits, 16 P 38s in the area.  I can fly in more in a day of my best fighters.  I have a bunch of P40s and such in the area.  I have Umboi Island.  I can LRCAP those P40s for the bombers and as escorts.  I saying this as I am thinking of attacking.  I figure that most of his planes will either be resting or be high on fatigue.  Am I wrong. I know there is more than a hundred more fighters.  In the past he has had squadrons training or resting.  I might be wrong.  I know I am behind and might be rushing things.  Let me know if I am rushing.

Afternoon Air attack on Gasmata , at 103,127

I thought about my last post, I feel pressed for time as well. I tried to think further than 60 days ahead. It has been so long since I could afford the luxury. While Japan still wields a big sword, I am beginning to dictate the time and location of battle, except in besieged China. It helped a lot. I got a lot in motion. I foresee a summer of rapid expansion of the front line trace while building a huge logistic tail complete with three major supply depots. I have been careful of aircraft pools and capital ships since my debacle off Tabiteuea and Baker Island. I hope by backing off a little he will become more concerned about where I am coming from. He is already searching empty islands around the map.

First off I have a new XO Ava joined our ranks on 5/6/14.

24th Mar 44

Burma
Troop movements. Japs get away from us on the road east of Taung Gyi. A fresh Jap ID sneaks into the stack south of Taung Gyi.

Timor AO
I have tried for several weeks of the game to get some troops onto the Kaileen Kai (spelling) Island, east of Samulaki. Koniu has always spotted them or had a SAG close by. Now I have my amphib TF 6 hexs away. They will go in tomorrow. Everything should be unloaded in the next turn. Its only an Inf BDE and a small Tank unit. Last turn a 3 CA SAG swept Lautem. It is currently sitting at Ambon. LRCAP is in place. Several SAGs will be in the area. 1 Fletcher TF will be on patrol with the amphib TF.

Gilberts
I have another amphib TF going to Tabiteau(sp). One of the TFs has a 1/0 sighting. I figure its just a signet thing and not a plane sighting. But I am pulling the ships back.

Solomons
We attack 2 small dot bases. We sink 3 AMcs and a PB.

Subs
We sink a small tanker off the coast of Japan. We chew up 2 different subs up in NorPac. Jap Air ASW are damaging subs around the Timor AO.

Thanks Guys. The birth was great for a first timer. First contraction was at 0010, she started pushing at 0830 and Ava was here at 1008. No issues at all. Turns have been kinda slow right now do RL issues. I have started an AI game and have gotten into it. She sits in daddy's arms I play.




She was 7.1 lbs and 19.5 in

Thanks guys. 

25 Mar 44

Not much action. 

We land on Kai-eilanden.  One IR, tank unit, and an RAN BF.  We are opposed by a Nav Guard unit.   We should take the island tomorrow.   A DA has been ordered.  Japs are upset for not seeing this invasion TF.  They have missed other TFs.  I hope that he sends his cruisers after my TFs.  I am withdrawing the amphib TF.   Supplies will be low, but I can't risk the ships.  Supply ships are at sea now.  A DD TF will remain on station with some 36 PT boats.  Subs are patrolling the waters all around the island.  CVE TF is close by hoping for some action.   I have other SAGS around waiting to pick up any jap ships that might attack.  I also see that bombers are now at Ambon.

Gilberts 
My TFs have yet to be sighted.  We might get lucky.  They have pulled back and will see what happens.

Burma
I'm attacking with 5 IDs and 2 tank units.

Sweeps over most of my bases find nothing.  Samulaki has fighter and the Franks come in  in small packages and get slaughtered.  44 Franks lost for 6 Kittys, 4 P39s and one Corsair, and Spit.  Kai-eilanden is captured.

My invasion TFs were spotted, they are now heading home.

Allied HQ is tired.  My home made air raid warning system went off all nite long. Now she is asleep, but in laws are coming over.

Burma
He bombed some of my troops.

Timor AO
I sent a 3 DD SAG to Ambon.  I wasn't for sure what he had their. Now I know.  4 CAs and 7 DDs.  We lose 2 DDs and barely damage his.  What I am thinking about doing is: bring my CVEs up and set them for Nav Attack.  I have 200 fighters and 70 bombers (half DB and TB).   I would also sweep Ambon, hoping to get some sweeps in before the naval strike went in.  Recon shows 130 fighters.  I know he has some Franks (I think some are shot up pretty bad now) Georges, and Tojos.   I would also send in my 4E after his runway.  I have over 300 (LBA) top of the line fighters ready to go.  Yes I figure I will take some loses.  Possible gains sinking several CAs and DDs, closing the AF and forcing him to move CVs into the area to keep me at bay or letting me run free for a few days.

Solomons
We hit a CM5 500 pounders.  Not for sure what it was doing.  I see no mines yet, but I do have some PT boats roaming around for them.

I think I might hold off on the Ambon attack.  I am thinking about sending in 5 TFs of PT boats (6 each) into Ambon followed by a Fletcher TF.  These would go in during the night phase and during the day I would attack from the air.  Moonlight is low 10% and climbing.  I'm not for sure if this is a better move or not.  Let me know what you guys think.  I am going to send the turn out tomorrow morning.

hi DOCUP,

cheers to your beautiful Ava!

wrt PTs, use high Nav / high Aggro for their flagship commanders, use boats that have the surface radar - early PTs lack radar & need an upgrade.

Jmalter: Thanks on both parts.  All my PTs have been upgraded so far.

Waiting for the turn.  Newborn pictures are today.  Yay so much fun.

Burma

Bombers refuse to fly against a Jap unit in the open. Fighters sweep and find nothing. Oh well.



Timor AO

We bomb Namlea's AF. I hope that this will make Koniu move some fighters from Ambon to protect this AF. PT boats are in position at Damar. They will make a 6 hex run to Ambon during the night. A Fletcher DD SAG will also make a run to Ambon. None of these will be at flank speed. PT boats won't make it back if I do flank. DDs can but I would like the PT boats to arrive first. PT boats have 2 hex's less to travel than my DDs. Both have the same cruise speed so it might just happen the way I want it. CVE TF has been spotted for several days now. This worries me. He could of moved up some CVs and launch a strike. I want to move my CVEs up a few hex's to get Ambon within 6 hex's, so I can get a strike off. I have no Intel or anything in this area about CVs.



My PTs boats at Damar have been spotted. I don't know if this will make Koniu pull back his ships or what. he could send them to Damar. They will just run into my PT boats, and just maybe hang around for my strike package. Now I'm worried about my CVEs getting pounded by his air power. I'm not that worried about LBA as I am his CVs. Ambon has 130 fighers with 35 bombers. Map uploaded. Time is running out, wife wants to go eat with her parents.

Solomons
We find a mine field. A PT boat sinks from a mine hit.

B29s arrive today. Yay. Koniu sent me an email about them. He has been counting hex's . So No sneak attacks. Lets just see about that. Hong Kong is up for attacks, China isn't.

Ok.  Maybe I am reading to much into this.  If I send in my PT boats and DDs.  Then the Jap SAG I am after just might retreat out of my range.  Then my planes will attack the LBs and other crap that's patrolling Ambon's harbor.  Maybe I should just have my DDs go in during the day light hours.  Hope that my planes get there first and the DDs clean up what's left.

Or

I should stop thinking about it and go with my original plan.

PT boats are stood down.   DDs are going to make a 12 trip to Ambon.   I hope it works.  I have 240 planes sweeping with 180 4Es attack the AF and port.  70 Naval bombers will strike from 6 hex's with 150 escorts.  I am also sending in 18 2Es low to attack Ambon's AF at night.
