wheeew... a full KB strike against Port Moresby but the damage done is minimal as is flak effect... really amazing how bad these bombers perform on airfield attack as the weather sure is ok... KB wonīt be a factor in ground battle at PM but it of course is when it comes down to resupplying/reinforcing PM... on the other hand, Iīm glad KB is sitting there for weeks as I can freely operate on the whole map without having to fear KB pops up next to a troop convoy... and in a three weeks Iīm going to have some 200 Allied fighters at the front, means Australia and all those will have 60+ skilled pilots so that should be enough to put up a fight, at least they should do well on Cap as weīve already seen during the fights of AVG over Singapore... these fighters will be supported by Army and Marine dive bombers that should be operational within the next couple of weeks too...

another full KB strike for no notable damage... a pity I donīt have more flak at the base, while I would have seen it as quite decent until I saw the little effect it actually has... wonder how long KB will stay in place... there are more than halve a dozen subs operating against KB and the convoys around KB without any effect... more S-class subs are moving into the area to have some working torps for the fight...

holy crap! Iīve thought Singapore would be 100% safe for the next weeks after weīve kicked out the Japanese and their return that also has been more than bloody but it seems the enemy was able to move in nearly 2000 av more without having to shock attack over the river into Singapore... damn, thatīs really bad news, no chance to hold for our defenders now... considering weīve destroyed over 700 enemy av and disabled probably more than this additionally Iīm totally shocked that the enemy now still got 2700+ av to assautl our lines... still, Iīve never done even close to that much damage to an IJ player assaulting Singapore in all the seven years of playing WITP and AE...

weīre nearly done but hold a day longer... and another 50 IJA squads destroyed... in the end we will have destroyed far more enemy combat squads at Singapore than we lose in total there which is an exceptional result I think... doesnīt change the fact that the enemy gets far more points for destroying our troops there than we do...

Naval Gun Fire at Singapore - Coastal Guns Fire Back!

49 Coastal gun shots fired in defense.

Japanese Ships
DMS W-3, Shell hits 3, Mine hits 1, heavy fires, heavy damage
DMS W-2, Shell hits 3, Mine hits 2, on fire, heavy damage
xAK Yahiko Maru, Shell hits 10, Mine hits 1, heavy fires, heavy damage
xAK Kokai Maru, Shell hits 8, Mine hits 1, heavy fires, heavy damage
xAK Koryu Maru, Shell hits 5, Mine hits 1, heavy fires, heavy damage

xAK Kogyo Maru, Mine hits 1, heavy fires, heavy damage
xAK Kenyo Maru, Mine hits 2, heavy fires, heavy damage
xAK Arima Maru, Mine hits 1, on fire
xAK Nankai Maru


Whoops. I did that in my first game. With my troops running out of supply in the Singapore siege I sent a supply convoy to unload at Johore Bahru, not realising that they would have to go through the Singapore hex first. Not much supply was unloaded.

I was first thinking mortar was trying to bring support troops to the "West" side of the peninsula but he said he "clicked one hex wrong". So I guess he clicked Singapore as destination if I get that right while he actually wanted to go to Johore Bahru like you. Oh well, just another boohoo, quite a couple already for only a good month into the war IMO.

the enemy finally is in position at Clark and if he really wants to achieve something then he needs at least a 1000 more av... weīre sitting in level 3 forts in a jungle rough hex with ample supply, what we lack are heavy weapons and especially flak...

Units destroyed 31

ok, thatīs it... with nearly 2800 enemy av assaulting Singapore in the end we had no chance... the defense still was a full success as weīve actually destroyed enemy troops worth two IJA divs here due to the failed and uncoordinated enemy advance at the beginning of the assault... with 2800 av at Singapore, at least 800 av destroyed there and 1500 av at Clark Field at the moment, is there anything left to be used elsewhere at the moment? I think if mortar gets serious about Port Moresby he has to bring some units from Singapore (hopefully those that are trashed ) and he has to use the rest to take Clark, otherwhise itīs going to be a halve yearīs siege there... got no idea if heīs planning to achieve something more in the Pacific, I canīt do anything about the Philipines, Java is building up (at least the Dutch are trying to do so) and the Pacific is slowly but steadily being fortified and reinforced... main focus at the moment is Port Moresby but also there, with KB sitting off the coast thereīs not much I can do other than watching the show... with nearly 300 P40/P39 in the area in a couple of weeks this could change slightly...

forgot about that CM at Soerabaja and as Iīve ordered Krakatau to move out she runs right into an enemy sub... sinking with all mines aboard... a pity considering mines are worth their weight in gold in AE...

114 mines cleared

you may or may not be ok with the number of mines in AE but I have to say that if the numbers are reduced to literally non existing than youīve also do something about the effectiveness of mine sweepers, not having them perform like in WITP... as it stands now, one of the biggest minefields on the map will be cleared by 4 minesweepers in not even a week... such a defensive minefield should be a problem for probably months and not even a week...

Situation report Port Moresby:

our troops there hold easily against the (reinforced) Japanese invaders, there are a couple of TFs in the area that donīt seem to really know what they should do... KB was spotted moving South again, away from PM which could open a chance for us to do something and punish such a move (any clue why KB is moving away leaving back those TF uncovered? )... weīve spotted several enemy TFs NE and E of Darwin, all heading South, thatīs probably more for Port Moresby and/or Horn Island but as long as PM is in Allied hands I would see it senseless to bring more troops to Horn Island... wonder if KB really is moving further South or what mortar plans to do now...

I hope it will last longer. As mortar is telling me heīs got 5 other AE PBEMs (finished or currently ongoing) I can only hope this one has seen all mistakes of my enemy already.

lol, that YO is one of those ships I got no use for... not sure where KB is really heading to as it changes course daily... general direction at the moment seems to be South... while Iīve got several major convoys in the area, non of them is nearly in danger of being in range of KB and all of them are ordered to move away from the threatened area... this does mean that reinforcements for Australia are delayed by at least one or two weeks...

more strikes are flown from PM but only to hit the two dead freighters... perhaps this scares mortar a bit as he should notice that those Marine pilots are able to hit something... the bad situation though is the fact that weīve got no bombers in the pools, let alone anywhere trained pilots...

enemy strenght at Port Moresby is far from being enough to achieve anthing there, think he needs at least twice the troops there... something mortar also realized and unfortunately more troops are on the way to PM already, see intel weīve got this turn:

8/16th Engineer Regiment is loaded on a Japanese TK moving to Port Moresby.
5/11th Air Fleet is loaded on xAKL Korei Maru moving to Koepang.


an eng rgt is probably not the only unit being shipped to PM at the moment, but wth? it is loaded on a tanker??? I didnīt even know IJN tankers can carry troops but even if I did, I would have never thought someone would use a precious tanker to do that... intel about an enemy air HQ being moved to Koepang is really bad news too...

more troops unload at Horn Island... to mention the Japanese super hero amphib bonus again, this makes it possible for any IJ player to carry out his invasions like a wet fart as you just can bring in more whenever you want, not taking losses, no matter if atoll, jungle, base, dot base, no base, whatever... I know the reason behind the amphib bonus but the way it is used in the game makes it totally ridicoulos... take an Allied division, put it onto APA and AKA and land it with 0 preparation somewhere no matter at what date and see how it is 80%+ disabled... take a Japanese division with 0 prep, put it onto xAK and land it during the super hero amphib bonus timeframe and see it coming ashore 99% intact... yes, excellent and realistically... the amphib bonus doesnīt help taking the historical targets within the historical timeframe, it gives the IJ player an instrument to do crazy things carried out in a poor way and still getting away with it as if it would be the long planned Allied invasion of Okinawa late war... we spot so many convoys in the Horn Island area that Iīm sure there will be another halve dozen convoys unloading at the atoll and it will do no damage to the Japanese...

real life invasion of Wake anyone??? ooops, Japanese amphib bonus must have failed there before it could really kick in... if there is something like a Japanese amphib bonus (that actually seems to origin from the well planned and executed landings within the SRA) then it should also be limited to those "historical" targets... for targets outside the historical landings, the Japanese should prep just as the Allied have to do because if there is a side that really knew how to do amphib invasions then it were the Allied from 44 on...

as it looks now, it seems the enemy is focussing on Horn Island with more convoys moving in... Iīm sure the plan is to take Horn Island and happily move on to PM to land more troops there... and the damned amphib bonus still lasts for 6 weeks... meant to enable the Japanese to take historical targets within the historical timeframe it has just commonly lead to giving ahistorical targets to the Japanese for a bargain... KB has been at see for ogoing six weeks already and is now approaching the Fijis... with enemy CVL/CVE around Horn Island I can do nothing there even though KB has moved away...

our adjusted av really makes me sick... the B-17 attack clearly showed an effect, otherwhise we may have lost the base with this attack already... the fact that we suffer more combat squads while sitting in a level 1 fortification doesnīt make me cheer either... it really does seem to have been silly to reinforce Horn Island as mortar really really wants that damned atoll and what the Japanese wants is lost at this stage of the war (except some very tough targets like Hawaii, West Coast, etc...)

hereīs another strange thing... weīve lost halve a dozen P-40E that are based at Townsville and they are listed as A2A even though the next enemy aircraft is 500 miles away and there was no A2A combat at all... must have been a glitch, doesnīt change the fact though that these P-40E are really lost and I have to replace them which totally sux as every fighter lost is nearly as much a tragedy as losing a B-17 at this stage... the enemy still leads the aircraft loss list though...

thatīs for my duds on CA Haguro yesterday! Iīm pretty sure this is going to finish the CVL as two torps and a fuel storage explosion should leave the CVL a burning wreck and she is just too far away from any real Japanese base to be saved... Well done, the first major IJN loss in the operation against Horn Island... hopefully this scares him away now...

losing all those vessels that got no value for me as Iīve got no clue what to do with them... I would have to teleport them out of the SRA to save them as they canīt go anywhere... increases the number of Allied ships sunk by another two dozen... is there any player actually using those vessels?



They can make Australia just fine if you give them an AKL to draw fuel from on the way. Hardly fast, but there you go. HDML P 1-P 16 are pretty pointless as they've just got MGs, but P 17-P 23 strap a couple of depth charges to the back - handy things to keep on ASW around ports. The AMcs I think you can never have enough of - if every out-of-the-way port can have its own minesweeper you'll never lose sleep over mines again. There are so few mines around that every little helps - in any case, there's no sense in letting them get bombed in port - if nothing else they can catch a bomb intended for something more important somewhere more important; I find carrier aircraft love to go after them, so they're great 'bait'.

yes, moving them out with some freighters would have been possible. What kept me from doing it is the fact that I need every freighter for duty in this area and I didnīt want to "waste" some of them to save these small vessels. I think to get them from Singapore to Perth I would have needed a couple of freighters and bigger ones as xAKL as those hardly can make that way alone. Anyway, the small vessels are gone now so I donīt have to worry about them.

as to using them as a bait, Iīm not really a fan of this as IMO those "baits" are really exploiting the game engine. No real life commander would send a full KB strike after a couple of barges or the like yet the game tends to do "strange" things. Using a couple of heavy cruisers or some BB as "bait" is ok to me but HDML, I donīt know.

please keep bombing my ground units for no result while my engineers keep building up the forts at Clark... Iīm aiming at level 4 forts and weīre nearly there... wonīt go any higher as the supply usage is in no relation to what another fort level would give us... I never build higher forts than 3 or 4 in cut off bases, usually I go with level 3...

KB makes itīs appearance and shows up West of New Caledonia again... everything of value is out of range and so far mortar changed direction of KB that often that he drove it into empty space... would he have kept going the same direction at some point he might have caught up with one of my bigger convoys but the way he did, he only wasted some fuel...

the enemy tried to interdict shipping around Townsville and PM yesterday already and still tried today... our convoys evaded and the airforce launched a strike... result wasnīt encouraging, not surprising with my B-17 being trained for ground attacks and not low nav strikes... we put a single 500lb bomb into Tenryu, can only hope this scares the enemy away for now (doubt it though when I look at hot mortar acted in the past)... we lose 4 B-17E which is an absolutely severe loss... we can do just nothing as long as the enemy has KB within two turn range of PM and all the IJN cruisers around... my strike forces are concentrated in the Melbourne area, ready to move up the coast as soon as KB moves out... whenever that will be...

ASW attack near Pearl Harbor at 185,98

Japanese Ships
SS I-5, hits 1

Allied Ships
DD Farragut

weīre moving out another damaged BB from Pearl, going to the West Coast...

Japanese Ships
xAK Teihoku Maru

Allied Ships
SS KXVIII, hits 1

Iīve got to say that so far my subs have been pretty disappointing... ok, weīve hit a CVL and probably sunk it but thatīs pretty much it...

Submarine attack near Koggala at 28,51

Japanese Ships
SS I-156

Allied Ships
xAKL Hermod, Shell hits 3, Torpedo hits 2, on fire, heavy damage

while the enemy just has to be in the same 45 mile hex as a single xAKL and for sure the sub finds the freighter and sinks it... I think the chance to do this in the game is by far too high... a single sub and a single small freighter in a 45 mile hex? Thatīs a lot of water for a sub without radar... true for both sides of course...

Submarine attack near Koggala at 28,51

but Japan suffered some bigger loss than we did today, when I look at the aircraft loss list, I get the confirmation of what I already expected for sure... two MK-10 torps and a fuel storage explosion were enough to see CVL Ryujo sinking three days later...
