Doccup is really making a mess of the whole Marcus Island situation. What he really needed to have done was prepare a fresh invasion force and land it all at once. This piecemeal reinforcement is doing more harm than good.

And it seems to me that Doccup is preparing landing on an island near Shimushiri-jima to establish some LBA in the region. No other options make sense to me; I can't imagine it will be a reinforcement of Shimushiri-jima because you've already heavily reinforced your defenses. I have to say I really do not like Doccup's timid firepower strategies. He should have brought in his fast CVs to strike your key AFs in the region at the same time before you could react. Only Paramushiro-jima was smashed which is not enough. This may be yet another opportunity to smash the Allied fleets in a battle where all the LBA is going to be on your side.

Docup defiantly bring hammer this time. I already confirmed 1000+ enemy planes on carriers. But this is not over. I see two more AC TFs that i have low DL on them.
It can be another 1000+ planes or more.
It is not good time to send KB. This is time to retreat everything from see surface back to main island. This is not that i am afraid but i feel this is not right time to carrier clash.


I suspecting 4 options what Docup is doing.

1.He try reinforce Shimushiri-jima. Probably worst chose. I have 2000AV on island with fort 5 and 2x terrain. Even if he capture that island it will cost him to much i believe.
But it is passable that Docup think i have ~1000AV on island. Last time Docup or I use LCUs was when Jap garrison was ~1000AV. And from that moment I dont fight to avoid giving Docup intel about defenders.

2.He only want resupply Shimushiri-jima. His boys must be low on supplies. Month of constant air bombing must burn lot of supplies.

3.He want to land on different island to capture AF and with use of LBA win local air superiority. Itwill also not be easy. All island around have decent garrisons 500-600AV behind fort 6. So no easy to capture.

4.He want to provoke KB and decimate it in carrier battle.

PS. I am sending 20 subs to area. They will star hunting tommarow. All surface fllet will reatret. This time i will give initiative to Docup. I cant stop him from Doing point 1-3 but i can hold my boys and avoid point 4

Just to avoid page 2
Fast summary

13-14 April 1945

Docup keeping small AC TF in Marcus island. He don`t land fresh troops. But allied AV is reduced to 96 and Docup have two IDs on island. 41st Infantry Division is 0AV, 40st Infantry Division is 90AV, and TD battalion is 6AV. Japanise AV 260. I sending also light 250AV ID to Marcus. It is time to push allies back to see.

Allies unload new invasion at Ketoi-jima. 1300AV land last turn. 5th Marine Div confirmed.
Japanese AV 620AV.
KB in full alert. Bad news is that i lost contact with allied DS. I only see CVE TFs in Ketoi-jima hex.
I em prepping KB. If allies move back for few days with fleet i will try to sneak fresh ID to island to reinforce garrison.

Because of lack of time we slowing game speed. I think we will be able to play 3-4 turn weekly maybe 5. Docup have family and all that stuff around it. I need to focus on work

Well it seems Doccup did exactly what I predicted and landed near Shimushiri-jima to try to gain a base to support his beleaguered troops. But I think Doccup needs 2000+ AV to take the island given your forts and ability to reinforce it; a 2 to 1 edge is not enough. Now he could the prospect of yet another landing mirred on the beaches with no supporting LBA able to turn the tides. Things are only getting worse for the Allies it seems, not better.

If the Allied DS is gone then this is a perfect opportunity to defeat his CVEs with an 8 strike hex on Ketoi-Jima. Losing track of the DS is not so bad; if you take the right approach it should be impossible for the DS to sneak up on the KB without warning.

15 April 1945

Allies still keeping small DS (250 planes) in Marcus Island. I think Docup want to blockade island. It can work for him as i am not able to reinforce or resupply base without KB commitment. I was trying two days ago to transfer some supply and troops by air, it cost me 33 transport planes


North pacific again intensive. Allies unloading in Ketoi-jima and Shimushiri-jima.
On second island allied troops have 1900AV but Docup unload last turn more guns. He have now almost 2000 of them. Not sure how big is Ketoi-jima attack force but i suspecting it can be close to 2000AV now.

Still not sign of DS but they must be close because he have CAP over fleet.

Over 400 planes DS in Ketoi-jima hex. I try today to move against them. 130 planes lost, allies lost 40 fighters. F6F have difficult time to CAP against A7M2, J2M5 Ki-84r escort. Don`t know if this is pilot quality But so far allies losing more fighters than me when I am attacking DS.

PT boats and subs i have in area sunk 5-7 enemy ships. Sadly only cargo ships and 3 AKA, APA ships.

I do math today. If needed KB will be able to send 870 planes in air. 3 carriers (150 planes) still in repair

It' everything combined : he has low quality, low morale, you airframes are just as good if not better, you have high experience (for this stage) japanese pilots, etc...

You have repeatedly eviscerated his Navy airforce, not surprising it can't cope with what you got.

Speaking about pilot xp.
Worst figter pilot in KB is 80xp. Those are elite pilots most of them fly over 200 missions.

It is much worst with bomber pilots. I have some 60-70xp but most of them is 50xp not bad but there is huge hit ratio difference comparing with prewar KB pilots

This is a good example of why the allies should always have a 2nd force ready and prepped if the first one can´t get the job done!

If a critical landing I often had a full Corps ready as a 2nd wave. At least for places like the Okinawas and Mindanao. You HAVE to secure that critical beachhead and do it fast. If you get stuck you can easily loose months and months.

16 April 1945

At begin summary of plan.

I have decided that I cant allow Docup to land without resistance.
Last two days almost 40 PT boats ans 20 subs was disturbing allied unloading while LBA planes where stinging ailed CAP.

Both ships and planes do not achieve much in destroying allied forces but they do two major things. Ships slow unload long enough to force him to stay in landing zone for 3 days while planes force allied pilots to fight for two intensive days building havoc and fatigue among them

3th day i decided to use main force (KB).
860 deck planes and ~1100+ LBA planes ordered to attack.

I place almost 250 bombers and 300 fighters on islands ńear Ketoi-jima. Because i suspected that main punch will go against ships there i ordered most of fighters to LCAP above island, remaining fighters get order to escort bombers.

Another 300 bombers and 150 long range fighters was ordered to strike from fields from Hokkaido.

KB move at flank speed from Japan with order to take position East of Hokkaido 8 hexes from Ketoi-jima. On deck 400 fighters and 460 bombers. In case of enemy counterattack KB get 250 fighter support from Hokkaido.

Day was intensive. I will only show major engagements.

As suspected first attack come from bombers from island. Lucky not only they where escorted but also LCAP engage enemy CAP. Still first number of allied CAP not looking good for me.

LCAP/Escort combo work well. Lower escort fighters where magnets for enemy CAP while Japanese LCAP fighter get chance to dive.

AM phase now.

Nicely done! Not to say I didn't expect anything less from you here. If there is one thing that should be clear, its that you simply CANNOT rely on CVEs to protect you against the KB for an invasion. You are just asking to be hit from an 8 strike hex because the Japanese know exactly what hex you're going to be. Only way for the Allies to do such an invasion is to have fast CV TF that can close with the KB and strike it while its planes go after the CVEs.

This game is somehow becoming more one sided every day

More than 1/2 of those CVE's are going to sink, no matter the allied repair capabilities. WOW!

I didn´t throw in the towel.

But I never suffered any big setbacks after 43 that Docup has though. I probably would have given up if I did.
