Sounds like one of those JFB wet dream scenarios.


Not really. The Japanese *do* get significant forward-deployed supplies and fuel. That helps a lot for the early war pace. They also get sizeable home islands resource, oil and fuel reserves above scenario 1-this helps keep their war economy viable longer into the war. There's more early model aircraft in the pools than scenario 1 (e.g., more Oscar Ic, A6M2 at war start). The Japanese also get a few ships-mostly escort vessels, a few extra DDs and 4-5 Guards extra divisions in 1943. This helps.

I'd estimate that scenario 2 (versus 1) adds another 6-8 months (+/-) to the competitive nature of the Japanese in the war and pushes the envelope on Japanese autovictory potential.

Wet dream? Hardly. For that you need to try out the "Reluctant Admiral" and other OOB major re-works with lots and lots and lots of extra, fictitious ships and lots and lots of extra, fictitious capabilities for these fictitious ships.


So the Brits are saying they need to cheat to beat us?


Big talk from the team who are afraid to play something a little bit more difficult for the Allies...

Taunt away. We're quietly confident of handing you your Yankee arses on a plate.


Oddly enough, I'm quietly confident of you handing us our arses too. But I plan to have fun with it.

I'm in the home of the 70.3 World Championship now. Booked a fishing tripp off-shore for tomorrow. Unfortunately nothing seriously big to expect, so no shark, marlin or thuna.

Thats if you were taunting Andre, of course. I've been told that speaking to a man on his own level generally produces the best results.

The "nation" never gave me a vote. Not that it matters. It generally ignores my vote anyway. I don't think it's listened to me since 1988.

Actually that depends on whom is blaming them. The rest of the world blamed them in the 20th century. We blamed them in the late 18th and early 19th. So by reckoning, it's time again.

Pfft...Russians. Totally overrated. Maybe for about 10 years.

Everyone else in the know in the Illuminati approportioned equal blame amongst Fnord motors, the UN, the UK and "Big Oil".
