Jan 24th wasn't the most exciting turn we've had to date.

KB launched a sizable attack on Batavia destroying planes on the ground and wrecking the AF. That can only mean an invasion is soon to follow. All of their land invasions have been well supported by LBA and CVs.

Harvey's mixed SAG encounted their DD screen and exchanged a round of salvos.

Cayagan, Koepang, Tsiaotso, Manila, Darwin, Darwin area, and Batavia were all subject to bombers.

They have been commiting numerous assets to Tsiaotso lately, and Mike is making them pay for it in my opinion. He mentioned that is a good area to defend in, and produces good results for the defender.

Had a nice juicy AK in Tautog's sights, but came up empty handed. Was used to taking down a few ships here lately.

Singers, S of Darwin, Ichang, Tsiaotso, Cayagan, and Koepang were all scenes of ground combat this turn.

Attu was invaded.. not a big surprise. Usually a target of most Japanese players. That or Adak.. We have four old DDs and an Omaha class CL in Dutch that is there for this specific reason. Will the invasion force hang around long enough to send them out, or would it have unloaded in one turn with the bonus?

And, another fresh unit is arriving this next turn to bolster the defenses. We shall see how much I can make them pay for it.

Excellent. Have you thought about a layered CAP trap by the AVG? Or, are they in different areas at this time?

My 2nd AVG is licking it wounds and down to just 6 aircraft at Chungking. They are waiting for the other squadron to refit to P40Es and release more airframes to bring them up to enough to field a full squadron. I will then move them back to Loyang (I think that is the name) where I have an airfield and support to do so. I will then split it up into three units and layer them on LRCAP and see what it does. Hopefully it will chew up some bombing missions.

I have to wait a bit though as I need two replacement cycles to bring them up to strength. If I could just upgrade them to P40Es I could be at full strength in just days instead of two weeks or more.

25 JAN 42

Logistics, China, Russia and help with US position report:

136th USA BF appears at SF, small 14V BF, set for Penhyn Island to boost its V capacity to 24 to help shuttle airgroups eventually.

Air transport TF from yesterday decided to load supplies at LA, go figure… Stopped them from loading, change to Transport to attach an xAP that appeared at LA this turn to shuttle it to San Fran. I guess they knew more than I did…

Going to send Concord and the DD division with her to check out Attu Island. Set her observation aircraft to scout ahead and extended the PBYs out of Dutch another two hexes to get some idea of what is out there. Maybe we will catch a transport fleet unloading even with the fast unload. Should be there tomorrow night.

58th PG/67th PS set to train, 100, range 0, filled with trainees.

Eastern USA bound TFs will start arriving in four days.

LA bound TFs from Panama arrive on map in 3, 5, and 9 days. Plan is to dump ships at LA and have DDs return to Panama to shuttle the constantly arriving shipping there.

ANZAC: Resource TFs there are performing as expected.

Analysis of situation around Port Moresby is that the KB is probably going that direction and there will be an invasion force from the Rabaul/Truk area as soon as the KB secures the airspace. The attacks at Batavia are indicative of two larger carriers and one smaller one. This still leaves four large ones unaccounted for along with the smattering of smaller ones. This is also indicated in our SigInt: Heavy Volume of Radio transmissions detected at 86,127. Which is the TF that all we see is that it is a TF. Just my two cents.

Just upgraded the AVG squadron in Bombay and they are on thier way to Calcutta. H-81s should be in the pool for reconstituting the 2nd AVG and you will be getting a P-40E equipped squadron shortly (full strength and ready to go).

The CAP trap worked but none of my other bombers flew with the fighter cover out of Bandoeng. Pissed me off as I had a large portion of bombers on naval attack and only the Demons flew. Cost 20 B-339Ds .

The little SAG adventure cost 3 x 4 pipers (2 sunk and 1 badly damaged), but the CLs are in good shape. there are 3 more DDs in the hex on ASW patrol, so they will link up and hightail it out of the area. It is not the full KB, but enough to wreak havoc. Didn't expect the 1/2 KB to show up. Almost managed a surface intercept........

Thanks for the words Torstan.

Moved some units from Manila and Bataan forward to Clark to strengthen it to around 1k AV. Hoping I am not waiting to late and trap 900 AV at Manila that can't fall back to Bataan.

Excited to see if my subs can get lucky at Horn Isl. He HAS to pass over them, and we're hoping the Zuikaku isn't as lucky as the last time. I want er dead!

Mike confirmed the unit on Attu is a construction unit. We're sending Concord over ASAP.. that is why she's there.

Mining Noumea (I think I remembered to do this) Harvey might want to double check. It is the DMs SE of Pago..

Moved the CVs to three hexes north of Louganville... getting nervous and I really want to use them when the odds are HIGHLY stacked in my favor early on.

Yorktown will arrive at Pago Pago this turn, while the rest of her task force is steaming east from Brisbane the last couple of turns. Once she steams forward to meet her sisters, we'll have four USN CVs, one British CV and CVL online. Once I upgrade all Buffs, we'll have a full line of Wildcats.

I dunno, I think you might want to say your good-byes to the USS Langley. In my game she almost made it into Pearl, then she ate a torpedo from an I-boat.

Early reports are the Concord and her DesDiv moved much more aggressively than expected and got to Attu before recon could be done. As such she and her escorts were severely damaged when they found a Kongo Class BB and several CAs at the island. We don't know if they will get back for repairs or not, but once the turn comes back we will know more.

I dunno, I think you might want to say your good-byes to the USS Langley. In my game she almost made it into Pearl, then she ate a torpedo from an I-boat.



Duuuuude she will make it! Returned youre call and hit end on accident yesterday. Ill call you tonight.

Hope your right on the Langley. Fingers crossed.

How is Dutch Habor? Expand the airfield as soon as possible. That airfield is an absolute bear to expand. Cold Bay seems to expand okay.

Speaking of airfield expansion. Other airfields I found terribly hard to expand are in the Phoenix Islands; Canton, Holland and Baker. In the Society Islands; are Funafuti, Nukufetau and Viatupu.
It didn't help that I had to retake those islands and setback expansion by several months. That is the only thing holding me back from any further assualts through that area. So through the Bismarck's and New Guinea I go, for the time being. I hit Truk for the first time (biting my knuckles) with a couple of carrier groups. And no air opposition! I sank alot of subs and a sub tender. Again, where are the Japanese? The CBI is the only place where there is any fierce air activity. And an occassional raid on Darwin. It is now 4 September 1943.

Marc-

I'll post a picture of Dutch tonight.. as I recall, it only has a seaplane tender and a few PAs...the AF is a bitch to expand. You're correct there. Not doing anything to Cold Bay at this time. Kodiak is at 3/3, if not 4/4 already...very close.

I would love to see the Langley make it. I like ships like her for some reason. If she isn't detected, and something catastrophic doesn't happen, I am guessing she'll be ok.

I remember you said the Japs don't seem to be opposing you too much these days in your game..

Didn't post last turns results, as the most recent file Hartwig sent was a goofy file.. Will run it tonight and post update. Curious to see the Concord, and all of the activity brewing up around Horn Isl and Port Morseby. Keeping an eye on each half of the KB. (Horn Island and DEI)

Dutch is indeed still AF:0, don't know why we haven't started on her yet. There is E105 there, so we will correct that oversight this next turn! Kodiak is at 3/3 29%. We will push her to 5/3 as we have plenty of supplies here using all the short legged xAKLs on the West Coast to supply this area.

Langley needs to be switched to cruise speed instead of mission speed to help ensure her escape to Pearl.

Saw combat(movie) file last night and the Concord appears to have made it away from Attu, need to slow her down to cruise to get her back to Dutch then on to Seattle. Going to move Warspite, Colorado, New Mexico, and Mississippi with a few DDs north to Dutch and see what the Japanese think of that.

Langley is on mission speed to make it out of harms way, and then will be switched to cruise. Same with Concord and escort.

Refueled CVs. Yorktown is still a day away from linking up. Kept them in the same spot, and the SAG group with Harveys.

Concord has more fire, and is now on cruise heading to Dutch, where the AF is expanding again.. currently at 4 percent.

Clark Field now has 925 av.. will be at around 1100 in a couple of days..

Hoping Manila falls first, so that they units retreat to either Clark or Bataan, instead of being trapped at Manila if Clark falls first..

Langley still on Mission to make it out of the Philippines prior to going on Cruise speed.

Singapore was attacked this turn, but held out. Good deal Harvey! This was even after a 100+ bomber raid in the same turn.

Pearl is now a maxed port. Has been going from day one.

Horn Isl captured by Japanese.

Gearing up your carriers for a strike?

Right after speaking with you last night I mean just momments after. I had something show up on my screen I hadn't seen in a long time. Surface combat! The Nachi, Nagara and two destroyers the Tachikaze and Kamikaze smashed into an unscorted amphibious group at Green Island just north of Bougainville. And they were wiped out, all six. Where did they come from? Rabaul and Truk have been neutralized for somtime now. Then over in the Indian Ocean, Addu is slammed with a major air strike. Not much harm and the small air group there made a pretty good showing; knocking down at least seven of the attackers. KB and little KB have reappeared! There is nothing much to counter them, except for land based air units. Good thing I kept several fighter groups on Ceylon. Time to scatter all convoys in that theatre. My false sense of security is over. The Japanese have not rolled over after all. [Cracking my knuckles], time to get down to business. Hot damn I love this game.
