Docup as me about units resize so i told him true.

We agree that for training it is acceptable but i suggest that it should be with realistic bounds. Bound leaved to personal judgment.

I will downsize those two groups to standard 45 size asap. But i will do that without destroying may defenses.

I also propose that max size of combat units should be max size that units using in game(max hard-coded resize, arrival number etc. so if there is at lest one units that let say begin or during game change size to 40 then all planes of that kind and nationality can be resized to max that number), so:

IJN
Fighters 45
Bombers 36
Torp. Bomber 36

USN
Fighters 42
Bombers 36
Torp. Bomber 33

USMC
Fighters 24
Bombers 24
Torp. Bomber 18

Can someone can confirm those numbers. I check them in editor but i was not able to check every unit.

That's a lot of keeping track of stuff! I would not go so far. Especially with USMC units. Those can be on CVs and should be allowed to re-size accordingly. Some IJN 2E groups are larger to begin the game, right? At 45?

Bigest units of IJN LB, TB and DB in game or during game is 45. But there is only one LB unit (Takao Ku K-1) that resize to 45 planes for rest max is 36
But i am I am only telling about CV capable groups. F, TB and DB

I can propose that USMC can expend like USN groups.
I try to find some kind on limit we can do. If i am limited to historical size of units that will require the same from Alied side. Historical size limit is first what i can think of.

Stay with max historical size for plane type is simple rule.

Enemy bombers bomb Lashio and Bhamo. In return Japanese bombers close Mandalay AF.

At nigh Liberators bomb Rangoon city. Last LI points where destroyed. I had some fighters on night CAP but they not manage to get in air fast enough.

Rabaul
I try to do air trap. I sent CL and two DD close to MB hoping that enemy bombers attack. All figters from Rabaul where on LCAP
Not only trap not work but also Liberators attack Rabaul port sinking SS, two SSX and damaging AKE. I think Docup want to send them at nigh and day raid was accident.

When i look at last inlet reports i am suspecting 4 places of future allied ops.

1. South DEI. Tabarfane and Dobo are hevly reckoned for last week or more.
I moving some LBA from Java and Sumatra to Celebes AFs. Ambon have Air HQ another Air HQ is sailing as we speak to Biak

2 and 3. Port Moresby or Guadalcanal. Because there he not have too use CV support at all.


4. Marcus Island. Base is reckoned for last week or more. Currently have no ground troops.(100AV will land in 3 days). Whit surprise effect can be captured easy and fast. I will lose my ayes on Pacific. Midway for last few days is like hive. Every day heavy radio traffic from there.


KB is in 2 days reaction distance from all those places. I should know much earlier about DEI(no fleet in Darwin area so they first need to move there) or Marcus when i have heavy naval search and i should see him at lest 2-3 days before landing day. Salomon`s is different story. I think there he can land and be gone in 2 days.

KB is currently 2 days for all those places. But i think i will rebase it closer to DEI. Peleliu looks ok.

We agree to some normalization with resizing of air groups. We have communication problems on beginning, mostly because my English in not good. But now everything is ok. Thanks Google translator.

This is last series of emails we exchange

From me to Docup
I am suggesting to avoid resizing above historical numbers for all units that are used in combat.
I think training units can have bigger seizes but with bounds that stop us from oversize everything. Few bigger training units will be ok.

90 size units on sweep will destroy game. I will need probably to have 500-700 planes to fight them and game engine will create stupid results. Not tellig that i don`t have enugh AV suport for that numbers of planes. Also game engine is not working well with big plane numbers. And i will not have enough pilots to place in those units

I check editor and those are maximal unit sizes that hapen in game. We can call them historical.

IJN
Fighters 45
Dive Bombers 36
Torp. Bomber 36

USN
Fighters 42
Dive Bombers 36
Torp. Bomber 33

USMC
Fighters 24
Dive Bombers 24
Torp. Bomber 18

I suggesting to stick with those number with all LBA squadrons but USMC can resize the same as USN when on CV
That will force us to stay with realistic plane numbers and give some flexibility to You when USMC will fly from CV.

And because i not want hard HR but some kind of benchmark situation so creating little bigger unit because You have extra place for two or three planes on CV will be acceptable.

I will down size my combat groups with about 10-14 days. And newer resize above historical numbers again. I think we dont want open those doors. Becouse behind them is only pain and madness.

Docup answer
Ok I can live with this. Sorry I got confused.

Weird strike. Only 4 groups of 2E.

notice that the Hudson and the Wellingtons get decimated flying on their own, but the B-25D-1 loses few planes and shoots down an equal number of Tojos too. Evil things!

B-25D-1 are nasty. Usually i get 2:1 against them

I was waiting for more bomber group, especially 4E but Docup don`t send them or weather stop them on ground.
That is good for me. Few 4E and AF will be closed and without them he lost 60 planes and do light AF damage.
I replace two groups for fresh ones and tomorrow i will wait again but i think Docup will not fly.

As long I can hold on 1:2, 1:3 against sweeps i am happy.
P-47 proof his quality but he arrive as third sweep of day so defenses where little disorganized in that point

Hi and sorry for lack of updates.
I working last week 12h every day and I barely manage to do turns.

Bad news. Docup start week vacations so there will be not turns for next week.


12-15 June 43

Burma
Plains are now in allied hand. Magwe as last base switch to enemy hands on 15.
All defenses are in place and i waiting for Docup moves.
I moved 84 Tojos to Bangkok as reserve. That is giving me total of 520 figters in Burma.


Singer
Heavy sub activity in area. More ASW in place i hope i will have few good hits.

South DEI

Quiet area. no major actions there. Docup destroy last oil wells in Babo and Bolea.

Biak.
Supplies and Base force unloaded. Air HQ shoul land there in few days.

DNG
Hollandia have now 500AV garrison. I will transport there some tanks and arty and base will be ready. Currently i building there AF and forts. I lost xAP on 15 when two fletchers intercept Troop TF in Holandia hex. I make corrections to search arcs to avoid that in future.

Aitape is now lvl 5 AF and building fort. Base is waiting for some infantry and more AV support. Should be ready in 2-3 weeks.

Manus. Bombed by some 4E. Garison have now 200AV behind fort 5. I need to send there more AV support and tanks.


Guadalcanal

Quiet. I have evacuated 2 from three sub units of ID i have there. I see no point of defending that area. I will now focus on Rabaul and bases close to it. and prepare defenses north of Rabaul.

Docup build hornet nest around MB. 4 mutually supported AF with 100 fighters each.

PM is cut of and out of supplies. Easy prey to allies.

many subs in area. I think i sunk 3 or 4 in last 4 days.

Marians.
I start preparing units to garrison those island. ACM are sailing there already i want to mine those islands.


Subs.
All subs that are no FP capable returning to ports. I will keep from now two sub fleet one in DEI one in Pacific.
Those subs with FP are placed it position all over map to work as early warning system.


Fleet comparison.
I compare what forces both sides have in game right now.
It looks good on paper but ships quality is on allied side.

16 June 43

Burma
Docup is moving toward Lashio by jungle trying to baybase my lines. I will retreat units from Bhamo area toward Lashio to avoid cuting off.

Salomons.

39 Tojos and 18 Georges lost when i sweep Goodenough island. Only 60 fighters fly CAP there but 20 F4U make a difference. One pas one kill for that plane.
In exchange i shot down 24 enemy fighters.
I lost 45 pilots. That really hurt.

Two CLs bombard Woodlark island. That island together with PM are most likely next landing points.

r&d
Ki-84a Frank advance to 2/44. Fifth factory repair today. That will give me 10 pints daily so Frank will be available in first week of 8/43

That is last turn for next 7 days.

I found why one of Sentai lost 25 from 37 sweeping planes.
Instead of filing units with reserve pilots, I use replacement 25XP pilots. I not know when that happen but at lest i lost only untrained pilots.

I make projection how CV plane capacity will change in next 12 months.
This is if we assume that both sides will not lose any ships during that time

We are back to business.
So far not much to report.

In Burma Docup is trying to bypass my troops East of Mandalay. His flanking moves will force me to move little more back and make my lines shorter. I will retreat ID from Bhamo and reinforce Lashio area.
In coast enemy troops ~1000AV moving down by yellow road. 900ĄV of my troops is blocking his path. In 3x terrain he have no chance. But if he try another flanking move i will be forced to retreat more south.

Estimated Allied forces in central Burma is ~3-4k AV. Defiantly to small force to push me back from Jungle.

Ki-49s bomb Burma refineries destroying 20 of them. I hope to destroy all of them in week.

Salomons. I see some heavy ships in Milne Bay hex. Lots of PT and landing ships. I suspecting allied will try to expend hornets nest to another dot base. Right now i am consider everything south of New Britain as lost so no major force commitment there. And i am preparing defenses in north of NB. KB will only act when he cross that line.

Marianas. I plan to be ready to fight there in 6 months. First IDs preparing(need to buy them). All of bases there have forts 4+(some 6). I am moving more Eng and supplies there right now. I want to have not less that 2000AV there by end of Year.

In DEI quiet. Nothing change from weeks.

R&D
N1K2-J in 12 days in production. I will pomp production to 240/month.
Sixth Ki-84a Frank factory repaired. 12 point/day will give me Frank in middle August 43
I am expending engines to match with Ha-45 future needs. Plan is to build 700 of them in month from now. Current reserve is 1100 engines in pool

Hey koniu,

Good to see you back!

In the Solomons I was not quick enough bringing everything back even though I thought at the time it was going well. Also, you might need more than 2k AV of troops in the Marianas. Once the Allies can get there they'll have enough troops to bring multiple divisions to each island. The five main islands especially need heavy units, arty, CD guns and tanks. I'd shoot for 700-800 AV for each of those plus another 300-400 AV for the small ones if I could do it over. That's 4400 AV plus!!

Marianas. I plan to be ready to fight there in 6 months. First IDs preparing(need to buy them). All of bases there have forts 4+(some 6). I am moving more Eng and supplies there right now. I want to have not less that 2000AV there by end of Year.



Hey koniu,

Good to see you back!

In the Solomons I was not quick enough bringing everything back even though I thought at the time it was going well. Also, you might need more than 2k AV of troops in the Marianas. Once the Allies can get there they'll have enough troops to bring multiple divisions to each island. The five main islands especially need heavy units, arty, CD guns and tanks. I'd shoot for 700-800 AV for each of those plus another 300-400 AV for the small ones if I could do it over. That's 4400 AV plus!!


I don`t have heavy troops in Salomon's. I never have more that 1000AV there as i never thing about that area as defensible. To mach places to defend with risk to be bypassed.

I have evacuated most of them already leaving only small garrisons to not give islands for free.
Guadalcanal have 190AV. Shortlands 160.
In South New Guinea(South of New Britain) i have less than 200AV. I think entire area have lasses than 700AV with half of that in small units and garrison units(not counting Rabaul there).

As for Marianas. 2000AV is planed on end `43. More will arrive in first months of `44.

Opposite to Salomon Sea area. I consider Marians and North New Guinea as good position to fight. Much lest bases to garrison. Much longer supply path for allies. I more central position for Japan so everywhere is closer so KB can react faster.

All good. Yes. Make sure in North New Guinea to get rear bases strong as well, as it gets going quickly after they get one or two and have LBA near.

Salomons.

Two or three enemy destroyers show up northwest of New Britain.
They where attacked by 25 D4Y1 from New Guinea. It was bloodbath. LCAP (P-38s, Beaufighters) shot down 20 bombers.

Two CL/CA? TFs move closer toward Woodwark Island(not remember correct name) I also detect AK,AP TF South of Tagula island. Potential landing force. Maybe.
There is also 4BB TF in area.

I moving KB to DEFCON 1. All Fighters returning to decks.
As i don expect enemy CV presence in area, I will replace some KB bombers with fighters.
Battle plan is simple. Major defense effort will be on surface fleet backs.
I moving more ships toward Rabaul. I will have them in place in 48h

Woodwark will not be defended but i will try to use it as CAP trap opportunity. as i believe he will send bombers on naval attack
If he decide to move north, surface flee will sweep potential landing points and KB will give LCAP to those ships if they stay in range of enemy planes. It will all depends how much north he will move

I am not planing to use KB as offensive weapon and i don`t believe it is worth and passable to go trough 400+ fighters CAP Docup will have there. At lest not for Salomon's. My line in sand is New Britain line.

19,20,21 June 43

Burma
Remree bombarded from air and sea. Minimal damage to troops.
Most of action is in north Burma where Docup is bombing from air.
I am retreating from Bhamo area.

Singer
BB Yamato have his first kill. I was hoping for BB or CA but we can`t have all.
SS Pike attack Yamato TF and was forced do surface by escort. Yamato sunk it by multiple 12cm and 15cm guns hits.

Defiantly worth of spending so many HI to build it

Salomon's
On 20 My CLs engage DD TF(fetchers), We sunk one and damage another.
One of my DDs take some damage and was send alone toward Rabaul.
Next day enemy CL TF engade and sunk that lonly DD and later angade my ships in Rabaul hex. We sunk CL Cleavland and heavily damage CL St. Louis (probably will sunk after 1x40cm, 3x36cm and few 20cm hits. We also sunk another DD and damage 3 more.

Enemy TF is still in Rabaul hex. I will tray to engage it tomorrow.

Japanese damage are light. Only few points of sys damage to battleships and cruisers, but nothing important was destroyed and ships are rearmed and combat ready.

Georges sweep dot hex near MB shotting down 20 P40 for lose of two planes and 1 pilot. Nice.

I see DD TF near West end of New Britain i think i was CAP trap. I lost 2 search planes above them.

Have no time to rapport. But there was not much to report also. We barely manage to play few turns in last 3 weeks. First Docup was on vacation and later i start refitting my apartment. Not all only two rooms but it consume most of my time. I now have new doors and door frames. Walls are refreshed and now are like new. I need to make new floor in anteroom and paint walls but i will end everything in this week.

We return to normal game in Saturday and we should from now play 6-7 turn per week.

There You have few major actions from last days. At lest they are worth of report.

In Burma Docup close Prome AF.
He is sweeping With 50 P-47 and 50 P-38. Tomorrow i will prabably send(still not sure) 570 fighters on LCAP to intercept those sweeps. I see opportunity to shutdown some of those P-47. Docup strangely is sweeping them at 34k so below max celling of Tojo and George. I hope that 5 radars i have in Prome will give me good warning time and allow Tojo's to climb above enemy before he arrive. With good numbers in air and some luck i can hope for decent result

Salomon's.
After battle in Rabaul during we sunk two CLs and DD(already report that) next day we sunk another damage DD that was not able to retreat under fighter umbrella. I also manage to refuel my ships in Rabaul and base have 10k fuel reserve.
I also replace some damaged destroyers and Cruisers with fresh ones and i send damaged ones for repairs to Truk.

Today Japanese sub sunk DD Tjerk Hiddes. but in return take some damage and will slowly return to Truk for repairs.

Already working on that. Few months ago i buy 42 inch 3D/Smart TV. Still not mounted on wall. I also invest in Wi-Fi router. I use it to connect my PC/TV/Smartphone. They all have Internet access and are connected witch each other by Wi-Fi. That allow me to use PC as access server for movies pictures or music i have on HDD or DVD. Also all devices have Internet so watching YouTube or what i want on phone or TV is easy. I only need to buy sound system to have Dolby Surround and i will have fully operational movie room. Damn i even plan to buy extra dark window blinds to make that room as dark as passable.
I am talking about different room. Room from picture is to small for big flat TV.

Hory crap! That is a BIG job. It makes my back ache to think about it. Did you hang dry wall or plaster those babies?

Also, beautiful doors but what is with the vents? Are you keeping animals in there?

I have plaster walls. And after they dry i use sand paper to polish them. they are now perfectly smooth.

You referring to holes in doors. Those doors are for bathroom and toilet. Major ventilation chimney is placed in those two rooms. It allow to better ventilation of entire place also without them i will have problems with moisture during bath etc.

Right now i am in middle of making floor ready. That picture was made 5 minutes ago. As You can see i will have ceramic floor in that room.
