Batavia has been abandoned so the enemy hits the CD unit there quite hard... considering how often he flew attacks against this unit already, I get the impression that heīs going to land directly at Batavia which would be surprising for me as there are enough completely empty bases around to do so... and Batavia still has mines, for what itīs worth it...

the battle for Soerabaja has begun... weīve been training our Dutch fighter pilots for two months now and theyīre mostly in the high 50, low 60... without radar this doesnīt mean a lot but unlike in the hundred sweeps earlier, mortar has set his fighters to 10000ft instead of 20000ft or higher this time... he pays for it and Iīm sure he will double his attack alt in a minute...

am pretty sure it wonīt take long to see more and more convoys unloading (completely unprepared) troops on Horn Island... thank you Japanese amphib bonus... like Iīve said before, limit it to historic places, have it end earlier, screw it completely or IMO the best solution would be to screw it but have the Japanese accumulate 2 points prep per day in the first three months as it then would take 50 days to be 100% prepped for a target to land there in good condition... or have them accumulate 3 points per day so it takes a month to prepare for a non historic target, the historic troops are prepped for their historic targets anyway... but the amphib bonus as it is now just invites the Japanese to do totally screwed invasions without any preparation because if they fail, hey, no problem, just send in another dozen convoys one by one to unload in better condition then Allied can unload in a friendly port... have seen so many screwed invasions in this PBEM already but it just doesnīt matter, he can just send more and more and more... while the Allied canīt reinforce an invasion in 1945 if the reinforcements arenīt totally prepped for the target and unprepped units will be just 80% or more disabled for landing at a place youīve already got 250.000 troops...

thatīs pretty much it for my Dutch fighters... only one succesful intercept, that was when the enemy didnīt come in at 20000ft or higher but at 10000ft... considering mortar was asking for a hr on sweep alt and I said we just should stick to what was done in real life I can only about 98% of all Japanese sweeps coming in at 20000ft or higher... oh well, no hr, the Japanese sweep high now, I am going to sweep higher later on... having the dive, the Zeroes were unbeatable...

Ground combat at Horn Island (91,128)

Japanese Shock attack


Attacking force 19324 troops, 185 guns, 9 vehicles, Assault Value = 609

Defending force 10461 troops, 34 guns, 13 vehicles, Assault Value = 267

Japanese engineers reduce fortifications to 0

Japanese adjusted assault: 296

Allied adjusted defense: 62

Japanese assault odds: 4 to 1 (fort level 0)

Japanese forces CAPTURE Horn Island !!!

Combat modifiers
Defender: preparation(-), experience(-), supply(-)
Attacker: shock(+)

Japanese ground losses:
1305 casualties reported
Squads: 79 destroyed, 51 disabled
Non Combat: 0 destroyed, 14 disabled
Engineers: 0 destroyed, 14 disabled
Guns lost 11 (5 destroyed, 6 disabled)

Non Combat: 672 destroyed, 0 disabled
Engineers: 35 destroyed, 0 disabled
Guns lost 39 (39 destroyed, 0 disabled)
Vehicles lost 19 (19 destroyed, 0 disabled)
Units destroyed 6

and thatīs it... the enemy failed three or four times with what was brought to Horn Island but he could just bring more in bits and pieces, everything being unprepared but the amphib bonus took care of the unpreparedness... we pay a heavy price as 2nd Aus division now stopped to exist... what is left in heavy weapons will be disbanded at Sydney... it has cost the enemy some 100 destroyed combat squad, a CVL sunk plus some transports sunk... while also delaying the inevitable reinforcement of IJ troops at Port Moresby I donīt consider this a victory for me... and again, the reason for defeat is the in game amphib bonus as I see it as all the invasion was carried out pretty badly with wave after wave coming in alone and unprepared while not taking any losses for doing so...

I expect most of the IJ units here being picked up and thrown onto PM which could shift the odds to the Japanese then... PM is one of those places I definetely want to hold on and I wonīt give it up that easily, so Iīm also accepting some losses trying to defend it... got my carriers and lotīs of cruisers in the area so if I get a chance, I will take it...

Japanese Ships
SS RO-65

Allied Ships
xAKL Caledon, Shell hits 9, Torpedo hits 1, heavy damage

deja vu... itīs just by far too easy to do that... the way this works you are just better off sending three ships in each TF because a sub canīt effectively kill them as it would in real life but if you send one alone it still getīs detected all the time (100% in my case so far) and sunk... so send three in one TF and two will get through instead of using single ship TFs trying to get through undetected...

no shock attack at Port Blair because the enemy invasion convoy immedietely picked up the SNLF after encountering our troops there... a pity... and now Iīm sure the enemy will just come back with some divisions to do yet another completely unprepared landing during the silly amphib bonus phase... the more and more I suffer from it at unhistorical targets at unhistorical dates the more I think about it how silly it actually is...

hmm... I really wonder if Soryu is around Horn Island or if itīs only her Zero daitai... but why would mortar move the Zeroes offboard his carrier? Soryu was never hit and I doubt there is an upgrade for her at this stage of the war... but having her alone here around Horn Island doesnīt sound like a good idea to me either... I really donīt know... fact is that I am in prepare of striking hard in this area, so it is either the enemy or me that is going to suffer, that pretty much depends on where KB is going the next days... at the moment KB is expected to sit at Truk...

lol, next wave for Port Moresby... what did I say about the crazy amphib bonus??? This must be the sixth or seventh wave coming ashore at PM... go figure how prepared those troops are... heavy CD fire but the effect is nearly nil... I wonder if the effect of 6 inch CD guns is that much lower than the effect of ship mounted 6 inch guns because after taking 5 6 inch hits, the xAKL isnīt even heavily damaged and Iīve seen the same before... when enemy subs put 3 or 4 10cm shells into my xAKLs they go down like a rock...

the enemy needs at least 500 more assault squads do achieve something here... as long as all those Japanese troops from Horn Island havenīt landed at PM Iīm confident but that could change within the next couple of days... and yeah, they donīt have to prep a single day to be taken from Horn Island and landed at PM... all heil to the amphib bonus... this is exactly where it is nothing but a piece of BS in the game...

the enemy unloads an inf rgt today, our coastal guns try to do their best but they are hardly a threat to the enemy... Iīm preparing to move in two full Aussie CD units, increasing the number of 6 inch guns at PM by another 32... hopefully this wonīt end in a disaster for me and we will have some more firepower against the inevitable continuous invasion waves... if the enemy is able to land the division that took Horn Island at Port Moresby then I guess itīs all too late already... losing all those troops and the base would be the biggest disaster so far as PM is one of those places I do not want to lose and I am trying to defend it at all cost...

thatīs by far not enough to take this base, Wenchow got level 3 forts, enough supplies, nearly 100% prepped defenders and the most important fact it is a wood/rough hex... in such a hex even the low value Chinese can hold out quite well... I was thinking to have 600 more av but decided not to send them there because in the end it is a cut off base and no matter how many troops I send there, they are doomed...

it probably isnīt a war winner for me but considering mortar could really really limit his losses I am quite happy with such an attack... those ships were empty but they are done... the Vindicator squadron that was shot up a couple of turns ago was upgraded to SBD-2 and sent back to the front immedietely and did some damage... if we continue like that then the ship count will go up and up in the PM/Horn Island area... guess we are somewhere around two or three dozen ships so far, most valuable being the CVL that was sunk by a sub...

as expected, the enemy lands directly at Batavia... the constant A2G attacks took care of my CD unit so that isnīt a threat to the invasion and nothing else is left there (except a small unit that just tried to go through the hex) but I still donīt understand why landing at a base that might still have some coast defense and for sure there are a lot of mines left when there are several empty bases right next to Batavia...

I am gathering my carriers and the rest of my fleet North of Townsville to strike the enemy convoys that seem to now head from Horn Island to Port Moresby... Iīm trying to strike from 6 hexes to see my divebombers using 1000lb bombs... if all goes well, the enemy will end up one or two hexes NW of Port Moresby and we are in range and have good weather to trash them... if mortar doesnīt surprise me with KB popping up next to Townsville then he is again more than careless and he will pay for it for sure... got three dozen patrol aircraft searching the area around PM but KB hasnīt been spotted so far...

here we go... have I bitched enough about the amphib bonus yet? no, what a silly piece of game design it is... not long ago, the enemy landed a useless SNLF at Port Blair, found out I had some more troops there, no problem, just go ahead pick up some rgt/div and land it without any real preparation and take the place... why, this silly amphib bonus just starts to stink as soon as it applies to non historical units or non historical places... no doubt the enemy will take the place easily now, thanks amphib bonus... my own fault, I know how biased the game is when it comes down to torp bombers, amphib bonus and naval combat so why the hell was I so silly to reinforce Port Blair... MY OWN FAULT!!! Boy, I have not been away long enough...

bet none of these units got more prep for this target than 20... now go ahead use dozens of APA/AKA/LST, an amphib HQ and try to land a USMC division with twice the prep these units have and look at it being 60-80% disabled just from landing at an EMPTY island and then tell me this design isnīt either biased or borked... some decisions will always stay a mistery to me...


and what about my attempt to attack the enemy convoys heading from Horn Island to Port Moresby? Well, the enemy didnīt move a single hex, which means my carriers were exactly ONE hex short to strike at the fully loaden enemy troop transports still sitting North West of Port Moresby... this not being bad enough, now KB is coming into play too... my carriers werenīt spotted so I will continue my operation because I doubt mortar will set KB to full speed to move into the area, he probably just moves down the "East" side of the island to come to cover his invasion... so my carriers will move further NW to stay at least 9 hexes away of KB which I expect to end up just off Buna or a little further East... this should mean our carriers are out of range (should NOT react) but we would still be in range of the enemy convoys next turn... a strong cruiser squadron is moving to Port Moresby to be there during the day to keep the enemy from landing... this will of course put my cruiser into close range of KB but we will have some 160 fighters at Port Moresby being set to 80% Cap 20% rest, this should mean at least some trouble to KBīs bomber units... if the enemy moves for PM this turn already his convoys wonīt be there during the night and during the day my cruisers should have equal chance against the enemy cruisers that are for sure covering all these convoys, have not spotted any BBs yet... of course it could end in a total catastrophe if my carriers actually end up in range of KB, this only depends on KBīs speed settings now I guess... like Iīve said, I donīt want to lose PM, same goes for Darwin and both areas will be defended at more or less all cost, at least Iīm taking quite some risk to defend them which doesnīt mean I would like to sacrifice my carriers... same goes for my reinforcement convoys, those will head back to Townsville, no reason to risk them at the moment...

as you can see, KB moved one hex shorter than weīve expected but still ended up at the expected 9 hex to our carriers... as the last two days, the IJN convoys didnīt move and this time we moved close enough to also see our TBD attacking at 5 hexes so we were in perfect strike range... knowing that US torpedo bombers are only worth 1/10 of IJN torp bombers, we have set them to attack with bombs as this is something they are able to do... the two carrier TFs launch a perfectly coordinated strike and overcast meant perfect weather... in total 181 bombers were attacking three or four different TFs, mainly focussing on the enemy troop transports that carry most of the troops that took Horn Island so that includes also an IJA division that is hit hard now... a good number of bombers also attack the cruiser squadron that is covering the troop convoys, as expected there are no enemy BBs around... heavy cruiser Furutaka takes a 1000lb bomb that blows up her magazine which was pretty much the start of the carnage... Myoko, Kako and Haguro all take 1000lb bombs that should do some damage, none of them shows up being heavily damaged though... nevertheless I usually expect an IJN heavy cruiser to sink after taking three 1000lb bombs while being 1500 miles away of the next major port... Kinugasa also took a 1000lb bomb but seems not to be effected at all... now itīs definetely nice to see those heavy cruisers being hit (the biggest threat of all IJN ships besids their carriers) but the main target of course were the transports... I expect 15-17 of them being sunk today, all carrying troops and while it only shows some 3800 casualties during the attack, I expect to have destroyed major parts of the enemy division plus other smaller units...

this attack means already to have stopped the reinforcement of IJ troops at PM cold and weīre going to try to wreck havoc within what is left of the enemy convoys... having convoys full of troops for days in the area without KB nearby is a little overconfident, I had my carriers in the area for weeks already, sitting under a 200 fighter Cap umbrella at Townsville so all that had to happen was KB to move back to Rabaul or Truk, which it does, leaving those precious convoys alone for too long...

KB was totally clouded in but that didnīt stop it from launching a fully coordinated strike... what is obvious is that this isnīt a fully combined KB, I think there is at least one carrier missing... out of the roughly 160 fighters on Cap at PM we see only 93 intercepting which is a totally frustrating ratio and we pay the price in having fighters destroyed on the ground as well as not providing as much air cover for the cruisers as expected... nevertheless a good number of fighters were able to break through the escorts and targeting the bombers which took a beating... not enough to stop them from sinking CA Louisville and causing damage to other ships of the task force... seeing parts of the enemy bombers being on airfield attack pretty much confirms my thoughts that the enemy didnīt expect us to be in the area, let alone attacking with our carriers or having this cruiser squadron at Port Moresby... losing that heavy cruiser is something I donīt like but it was worth it this time and I think we trade Louisville for three enemy CA being sunk while all the fully loaden transports would have been worth it already...

so what does the afternoon bring...

and what happened in the afternoon? NOTHING!!!! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR... no strikes being launched... while we still had 180 bombers on our carriers and there was nice weather over both our carriers and the enemy convoys in range - NO STRIKE... pfff...

mission accomplished though, Port Moresby is absolutely safe for the moment and if he wants to take the place then he has to pick up some other division and if he isnīt able to do that in the next couple of weeks he wonīt have the oh so magic amphib bonus anymore so any landing attempt will have serious problem... the enemy carriers lost about 40% of the available bombers so I wouldnīt expect a full speed movement towards our carriers but Iīm not sure mortar thinks the same because his actions werenīt really foreseeable in the past and knowing what superhuman IJN carrier bombers are I donīt want to have 80 of them attacking my carriers if I donīt have to. So that means my carriers will return to Townsville to sit under a nice Cap umbrella in more or less total safety while I have dispatched some cruiser squadrons to go hunt down the rest of the enemy fleet which is suspected to either try bringing everything afloat to Port Moresby to unload there or, more likely, to go to Horn Island to land the troops at their friendly base... all heavy cruisers have been hit and most of them are heavily damaged and we have at least twice the number of heavy cruisers so letīs see what the next days will bring...

wow, really donīt know what I love more, the idiotic Japanese amphib bonus that has no historic justification at all or the ground combat model of this GAME... both go hand in hand and then we come up with threads about how overpowered Allied 4E bombers are... speaking as a truly Japanese fanboy of WITP times, no matter how you see it, if you have read books about how real life looked like and you still think the Japanese arenīt given truly massive goodies for game balance they never had in real life, then I suggest to pick up those books and have a look again...

and yes, it is and always was only my fault to see this happening, as I should have known better... so only blame me, donīt blame the amphib bonus, no matter how silly it is... nevertheless mortar is using the amphib bonus to good effect, no matter how flawed his advances on Singapore and Clark Field were (both places saw the IJA being kicked out) and how his invasions have gone so far, with the amphib bonus he took all those places he wanted to do... if he continues doing it that way, he will have a real problem that starts on 1st April when the iditioc bonus is no more and the Japanese actually also need preparation for invasions...

saving Port Moresby and dishing out that blow to the enemy convoys down there was a big victory but the loss of the two bgds at Port Blair was a defeat so this turn wasnīt as good as it could have been, especially as my carriers didnīt launch strikes in the afternoon for no reason...

we achieved a nice kill ratio today but it could have been far better as Iīve expected at leat some 120-130 fighters at Port Moresby being airborne with all the radar I have there and the high Cap %... with those losses and only being a little more than two months into the war, shouldnīt the enemy run low on Zeroes, Vals and Kates already?

and that is my SAG that was covering my carriers... both my carriers as well as KB were retreating... damn it, this means mortar actually did what I would have expected everyone to do, which actually means he didnīt do what I expected him to do lol... so instead of launching strikes from my carriers against his remaining ships my carriers are at Townsville now and ALL my cruiser squadrons missed the numerous enemy TFs that have been dispersed in the area as they did NOT go back to Horn Island nor did they try to make Port Moresby... means nothing of what Iīve expected actually happened... grmpf... ok, my carriers will stay at Townsville while my cruisers will try to hunt down the enemy convoys that are fleeing NW towards the SRA...

How many times did I gave tips about not engaging the Japanese super hero ships Grigsby designed them to be? Uncountable times... how often did I do it myselve even knowing it better? Too often... and while there sure should be super hero results once or twice in a whole war, all the frigin AARs and my own PBEMs are full of IJN super hero results while the Allied are designed to be dumb ass sailors and their ships are nothing but floating ****... boy oh boy...


Night Time Surface Combat, near Horn Island at 92,127, Range 1,000 Yards

DD Preston
DD Clark

this is one of the cruiser squadron that is hunting down the fleeing ships NW or Horn Island and mortar dispatched a single DD to stop me... well, a single DD is easily enough to stop a force of three modern US heavy cruisers that are screened by 8 modern US destroyers... Chicago is sunk outrigth and Northampton suffered no less than 95 flt damage and was scuttled during the day... I really love how biased the game is for game purpose, what makes me sick is the ongoing "oh the Allied are soooo overpowered" screaming since day one of the announcement of AE... I still donīt know why Pauk left the forum even before AE came out saying AE is purely the Allied Edition... I just donīt get it...

again, this is one of those results that might happen ONCE or TWICE in the whole war, what really strikes is how often I use far superior force and get my head handed, same in other AARs en masse... and why do I never see those things happen when a single US DD encounters such a Japanese force? Why???

The Japanese DD happily sailed away totally unscratched after sinking two Allied heavy cruisers sitting in the middle of 8 Allied DD... KB managed to sink a single CA, this single DD sunk two in one go... I bet it wonīt take two months until the next Japanese super hero result pops up, I bet... oh mind you, there were the laser guided long lance, the unlimited Japanese production capacity and the all deciding massed fleet clash during the night at 2000 yards that won the war for the Japanese... or was that only what they were dreaming of?

what a turn, I could but hey, my fault again... I know how the game works, I do give tips not to do this or that, it is my fault to engage enemy ships, even if they were totally shot up before and are mostly fleeing... it is nothing but my fault because I know how the game is designed and how it has been working for years already...

so lean back, build up, use your ships only to escort your carriers, use hundreds of 4Es from level 9 bases and move forward one by one... totally boring, but the biased design forces you to do so, no matter if early 42 or late 45, the way it is designed means a single Japanese ship is worth 3 or 4 Allied ships of the same class... so donīt engage them...

thatīs why I think the "no mines in the Pacific" design of AE was wrong because theyīve changed the ability of mines but did absolutely nothing about how easiy it is to clear mines, not comparable to real life at all... sorry guys, a more or less balanced WITP system was "enhanced" into an unbalanced AE system... we drop 40 mines, 32 are swept an hour later... if you try to make the use of mines more realistic, then also try to make the minesweeping more realistic...

this probably will be the only success the Dutch airforce on Java is going to achieve... 90% of our bombers launch in a coordinated strike at 8 hexes and if the enemy is sitting at a base it usually is no problem to find them... the bombers drop only one bomb each at low nav but thatīs enough against enemy freighters unloading here... halve a dozen enemy freighters should make up for the points lost all the bombers are worth it when they will finally either die on the ground or being shot down by enemy Cap... actually I expect the enemy to take out the bombersī base next turn, I canīt fly my bombers out as I donīt have any bases left I could conduct air ops in that region...

I have noticed the same thing in my games with the Mark 10 dud rate....Hard to be upset when most of ones modern subs can not get a torpedo to
work but when no S boats can get an explosion it seems......Messed up..

we have a major reinforcement convoy reaching Port Moresby bringing troops and some supply... I have separate supply convoys coming in as I want to have the troop transport leaving asap again... I think with this convoy reaching Port Moresby the enemy will need at least three of his divisions to achieve something here and he wonīt be able to bring them as long as the amphib bonus is still active so the chances to never lose PM are 3:1 IMO now... for the near future PM is totally save and if mortar isnīt concentrating all his strenght onto this area then we will be able to further increase our strenght here... not losing PM and Darwin means not being set a year back for the assault into vital Japanese areas... for me, Darwin and Port Moresby are much more important than bases like Pearl Harbour or Ceylon for example... Darwin and Port Moresby are coming right after India, Australia and the West Coast in their importance to me, everything else is in an order behind that...

minelayers going to Darwin... offensive mines have become nearly 100% useless in AE, defensive minefields are only useful in conjunction with heavy CD to "defend" the minefield and Darwin has some nice CD which will be further increased in the near future... Darwin got a level 8 airfield already, further building up to reach lvl 9 soon which means weīve got a huge airfield there in March 41 already, supplies should be no problem, same goes for the defense of the place because if mortar really decides to take this highly important base then it will cost him... itīs not impossible (except the West Coast I donīt see any target as impossible for the Japanese until mid 42) but it would take a maximized effort and so far I havenīt seen such operations and without the amphib bonus it will only be harder for him to achieve that...

I donīt know where it comes from, there should be a 4:1 chance for every Mk-10 hit to detonate which is by far not true so far in this game... it evens out (at least it should) over the long run but so far it is astonishing how many MK-10 or Dutch torps hit but fail to detonate...

I try to be a little more positive (yes, I try), so I have to remember the enemy CVL that was sunk by MK-10 torps off Horn Island... remembering my girl friend saying "you are not positive enough for that game..."

I have dispatched my three best US destroyers in this area to attack a big convoy at Ambon and this is the result... unlike the IJN where three DD would sink halve of such a convoy including at least three modern US BB we sink a TB and manage to damage two freigthers and a PB of which none will probably sink... well done US Navy once again... and then the slow convoy of freighters manages to escape my 30+ knot destroyers...

great, an empty supply convoy that is retiring from Colombo is targetted by mini KB that suddenly pops up... the usual 50% or more hit rate of IJN torp bombers kill 3 ships outright... the British miss naval patrol squadrons and the couple of aircraft that are flying nav search in this area failed to pick up this incoming task force... it could be worse as I'm in the process of reinforcing Ceylon with a division plus support units so if that convoy would run into mini KB it could be really bad... the reinforce convoy is about three or four daysī movement further North and will be redirected immedietely until mini KB leaves the area again...

xAK Kainalu, Torpedo hits 2, and is sunk
xAK Delawarean, Torpedo hits 1, on fire, heavy damage
xAK Shillong, Torpedo hits 3, and is sunk

really nice raid of mortar, the afternoon strike of mini KB takes out more or less the whole convoy... another 63% hit rate of the IJN super heroes... Iīve had an AS in this convoy, not deliberately... so far Iīve always spotted KB when mortar tried to slip through into vital areas to hunt some convoys but mini KB attacked in an area Iīm more or less blind... wouldnīt matter most of the time as I donīt have shipping in this area but the appearance was well timed in this case, arriving a couple of days earlier would have been worse as the ships would then be loaded with supply...

1. I still donīt know why Pauk left the forum even before AE came out saying AE is purely the Allied Edition... I just donīt get it...

2. ... and why do I never see those things happen when a single US DD encounters such a Japanese force? Why???


1. because it is

2. because you are punished for choosing wrong side. You should stick with Japanese


PS.

I just love your rants

great, silly amphib bonus drives me mad... so what, the enemy throws several unprepared divisions onto the beaches at Port Blair (after a failed invasion earlier) and then the place falls to a single shock attack... this then alerts me and I start to pick up troops for Ceylon as those Ind bgd that were defending Port Blair are now missing on Ceylon and what happens? The enemy is faster in picking up those unprepped troops from Port Blair to throw them again unprepped onto Ceylon than me in bringing in reinforcements to defend the place. Sorry, I guess I have never had a PBEM in all the years that showed so clearly how totally unrealistic and totally dumb that Japanese amphib bonus is.

Like Iīve said before, leave that bonus to historic units for their historic targets but get rid of it for all those unhistoric targets because in real life the Japanese were well prepared for their targets and that is where the amphib bonus design may have origined but the way it turns out in the game is truly dumb. The way it is now all you can do is to hope 31st March is coming around soon because otherwise the stupidity just goes on and on. Seeing Imperial Guards landing here already makes me sure Ceylon is lost as there are only 300 av defending Colombo and Imp Guards wonīt be the only div landing here...

losing Ceylon (I sure will) isnīt what really strikes me as Ceylon is not one of the places I do want to hold at all cost and it can be taken back quite easily in the not so far future, itīs more like the fact that the only reason I am going to lose it is the amphib bonus once more, otherwise those invasion troops would now either be trashed or whould still be prepping for Port Blair... of course, the enemy could not go for Port Blair at all (if no amphib bonus) and go for Ceylon instead (which would be fine for me) but then I would still own Port Blair with all those Ind bgd there... the way it is now is just rubbish as the Japanese go wild and land unprepared at different places outside historical targets in short order which isnīt even what that silly bonus was meant to be for... once more, I am aware of the game mechanics so donīt blame silly mechanics but blame myself for not adopting to them...

wonder how many thousand sorties the enemy will have flown against Clark until we see the first attack on the ground... as it is now, the enemy doesnīt seem to even think about attacking which serves me well as my strenght is growing daily...

nice, Wenchow is a wood/rough hex and we built some forts so the first enemy assault here was easily repelled and this against a far superior enemy force... I donīt doubt that we are going to lose the place though, the only reason I kept troops here was to buy me some time elsewhere in China or (if the enemy doesnīt go for Wenchow) to have a base to refuel my subs operating in the Japanese shipping lanes (without success)...

AFTER ACTION REPORTS FOR Feb 24, 42

the enemy keeps unloading at Koggala and we let him do so as we donīt really have offensive power when it comes down to the airforce and as long as mini KB is around it doesnīt make sense to send in the Navy... weīve got a BB, several CA/CL and some DD (all British so they should be quite competent) in the area that can reach the invasion beachhed in one turn but as it stands now we are going to hold them back...

Argonaut delivered mines to Rabaul but those AMc will take care of the load in no time... so Argonautīs mission will claim a single AMc for one victory point... Iīm losing three points a day on average for not meeting garisson requirements of abandoned bases in China...

I dare to say that this was clearly a bad idea... a failed deliberate attack yesterday that causes high disruption and then a shock attack the next day (not that disruption would show up as a (-) for the attacker)? Bad idea, really bad idea... the enemy has the equivalent of more than 2 IJA divs disabled in two turns for little gain... still doesnīt change the fact that we are going to lose Wenchow and we are going to lose more squads destroyed than the enemy in his failed attacks and disablements mean nothing, only destroyed squads matter and due to the inevitable retreat of my troops we will suffer a lot of destroyed squads...
