I think he is trying to resupply Wotje and Maoeolap

I am keeping both island with AF at 100 damage and American soldiers are strawing from months.

EDIT.
He can also test my defenses.

8 FEB 43

Burma
Search planes detect two enemy TF closing Rangoon.
Probably SC FT to sweep ships around my base.

I am sending SC TF in case Docup will try to bombard Rangoon. Also 70 fighters and 60 bombers will have order to strike.

Cocos Island
Another enemy TF is unloading. Base is lost I cant give fighter support to bombers, and i have no carriers in area.

I am sending CVE TF to regain some control over base. Maybe i will find enemy CVE but i will take few days.

East cost of Oz
SS I-165 sunk after forced to surface near Cairns.

It is 18 SS lost by Empire.

Salomon's
Enemy FT is sailing toward Tagula. Bombers on full alert

Marshals
Enemy TF is unloading on Wotje. Bombers not fly becouse i give the max range 1

Cocos island is start to be dangerous.

Infrastructure is ready.
Palembang is AF lvl 6 behind fort 6. Surrounded by net of lvl 2,3,4 AF
Batavia is lvl 4 AF fort 5

I have two aHQ in Palembang one will be transported to Sabang later
I am sending all free aviation support units to Sumatra.

Three (currently LB units) are flaying to Sumatra. I will upgrade them to Ki-45. 270 PP for single unit. Madness. but i will have 81 Ki-45. And until allies are going to be able to escort bombers Nick will do job

23 and 25 Air Defense AA Regiments will sail from Japan to Palembang. I hope 36 10cm AA guns will help little. Those are best AA units in game Japan have
I will send also 42 Tojo's IIc and 45 A6M5. When George will be available in April then that Zero unit will have priority to upgrade to it.

I am re-basing battleships and cruisers toward Batavia. When CVE TF arrive i will start bombarding Cocos from sea

I was able to keep Cocos from expanding 5 months. It is easy to close port lvl 1 but also it is easy to repair it and now Cocos have AF 2 and 15 fighters on CAP so bombing raids are not passable.

Invasion was newer option 20k enemy troops on atoll. It Is job for Few US Marine Division not for Japan army.

In next game i will remember - capture and fortify Cocos.

I am also reinforcing Christmas Island IO



I will appreciate help here.
I am scare that i will need to defend Palembang against 4E in 1943

Buon Natale koniu!

Cocos is a pain in the arse! I feel your pain! I've done the same mistake in my game against QBall... didn't feel strong enough to assault a fortified atoll like Cocos when the time was proper (by the end of amphib bonus) and let it live... and now i have a level 5 AF right at the door of Palembang.

In my game QBall has already started to use Cocos as a staging base for his 4Es...which are hitting Christmas Island every day...
They can reach Palembang, Batavia, Sosarbaja...from there... The only thing you can do is to keep Palembang well defended.

My plan is exactly like yours: place at Palembang several AA units. Get there a some 100 between N1K1s and Nicks and, above all, at least 1 Air HQ and a couple of base forces with the latest Radar available (it's Ta-chi 7 i think). You cannot do more for the moment.

Now it's too late to invade Cocos... but, above all, the real problem is that from there he can see all your movements in Sumatra, Java and around Singapore...so surprise will be difficult to achive anymore in the DEI for us.

Thanks GreyJoy

We have big problem there.
I do not know how Your game but in 40 days Docup will be allowed to Strategic bombing Palembang.
He can Fly only with Liberators on extended range without escort but still can do very bad things to me. I hope that i will be able to give enough resistance to slow him down enough to keep Palembang running

"My" Cocos is already a level 5 AF and his liberators CAN strat bomb Palembang. However, without escort, they aren't trying to do that so far. I've placed some 60 Nicks at Palembang and am planning to add some 27 N1K1 (already 20 produced !!!) in the next week. With 90 great 4Es interceptors there, good radars and an air HQ filled with AA guns, i still feel pretty safe.

Cocos won't be able to stage a huge number of 4Es... a level 5 AF is still a limited AF for 4Es... so we have means to counter that.
But watch out for the USN threat! Hiding behind Cocos a CV Fleet could sprint in and send some 300 SDB/TBs to bomb your oilfields, so you better start to keep a good reserve of Netties and LBA Kates parked somewhere on the western Coast of Sumatra, with some good search planes doing their duties.

I've moved some training squadrons to Singapore from the Home Island just for this purpose... if the enemy pops up there i wanna have something immediately at hand...and even a half-trained squadron is better than nothing when the enemy CVs arrive

Enemy CM in Tagua hex. I dont think he have mines. He was part of cargo TF that was trying to resupply base but i have sunk xAKL last turn

I am sending more combat planes from Japan and Manchuria. I need some DB in Salomon's and Marshals. TB have problems with those small fast enemy patrol ships.

I am sending two CVL from Marshals to DEI. They will join there with CVE TF that should be enough against enemy CVEs around Cocos. In 5 days British will get CV but with small capacity it is no more that armored CVL.
Ryujo avoid TT attack nort of Manus - lucky me

George advance to 7/43
First KB DB unit upgrade to D4Y1

I dont understand how Cocos can be a problem (sorry I didnt read previous pages of your AAR), when he will mass 4-e bombers, you can use simultaneous combination of night air bombing raids and fast naval bombardment that will destroy or damage lots of planes and runway. Cocos Island can became a grave for his precious bombers.

This time allies not fly at day but only at night. Also this time my Night CAP fly.
They fight well. Nicks manage even to damage two bombers.
No damage on ground


And that is as good as you can expect. I think I can count on one hand the number of 4E's I have shot down at night ...

I do not expecting shotting down bombers. Even hitting them is more than i am expecting.
I only want night CAP to fly.
Having something in air = big reduction of bombing accuracy ant that is what i need.

I am not even building, r%D night fighters i do not think there is big difference between using F, FB or NF. Also those early arriving night fighters are so slow.

I do the same.  I always want to be sure whatever I have on NF mission is faster than the bombers incoming.  That seems to be a very big part of an interception.  As you note, most of the IJ NF's are slow ... slower than B-29's ...

I have just send turn to Docup. It is last turn for next two days.

I only have extra news. I dont know have but when i first time was looking trough map i did not notice that enemy CV TF is on open sea between Bowen and Rockhampton.

If this was happen half year ago i will attack.
Today it is to dangerous.
Now we have times when Japanese CV waiting for enemy under LBA support not opposite.

Happy New Year to you all.

16-18 Feb 43

Burma
Another night raid. This time Mandalay was target.
In total 120 enemy bombers fly. Lucky at lest 40% of them return before arrive over target.
10 Ki-45 scare them so much.
On ground i lost 12 Ki-44

Singer
MKB arrive to Singer. 4xCVE 2xCVL
They will sail toward Cocos to give air support to BB TF.

Cocos
Enemy ship in Cocos anchor. I think it is ACM

Koepang
I move 70 G4M and G3M to base. They have order to nigh bomb Darwin Port
They not only refuse to fly but also on morning 40 enemy bombers decide to plaster Koepang AF. 35+ bombers lost on ground.
Lucky o have over 200 bombers in pool

Salomon's
4E close Gasmata.
KB in safe anchor

First time in my game experience i saw night naval attack with confirmed hit.
Strafing bombers attack Japanese cargo TF near Guadalcanal. Minimal damage to xAK

I do not know what happends with the IJ . but the Allies get an audio alert when a search plane detects a carrier ... "Main Body!" Its annoying but does get ones attention that enemy CV's are strolling through serch arcs ...

19 FEB 43

Another night ride on Mandalay. This time i lost 24 Tojo's. CAP not fly
I will remind Docup about HR of night bombing(max 2 attacks in single hex per week and 4 after 9/43) to be sure he not attack tomorrow
On other AF i am sanding more planes to night duty

Mandalay is open. AF damage is in middle 30s.

I am building 7 Ki-44 daily. Loses like that using my plane pool very fast.

For Japan detecting enemy CV is no different from detecting different TF type. Usually i know that there is CV when Patrol planes are shutdown by CAP

Docup and I have that HR about night bombing missions

Max 2 attacks in single hex per week and 4 attack in week after 9/43

This is limiting enough night bombings right now to lvl where allies are not able to move his bombing raid to night only, but also that HR is not perfect. After last two days of bombing Mandalay Docup will not be able to bomb at night for next 5 days reliving me from night CAP duty in that base and i can focus only on day phase

I am looking for something more balanced giving some king flexibility to time and numbers of raids. I am not want to block bombings but something that will not make them so effective

In last two days i lost 40 fighters and Mandalay AF is 30/30 damage. I can live with that for short time but few more days like that and AF will be closed without single plane flying at day. I will accept that if night figters or Flak can crate seroius danger to enemy bombers. Right now allies can bomb without any danger to own planes. Also my fighter groups have now morale ~60 with is not good for me.


Any idea about it. Maybe some kind HR change or modification. Something that allow Docup to bomb every time he want but also with limitation to effectiveness. Maybe limiting numbers of planes/air grup that can fly in single night or altitude limit??
