Some of our forces made Hengyang today and more (fresher) forces will make it tomorrow, greatly exacerbating the now slight over stacking. The Imperial forces freed up from contact today are wasting no time, and are now moving directly on Changsha.

Between Liuchow and Kweilin we saw the limit of armor alone.

B-17 raids on Akyab cost 3 x B-17s to ops losses and 1 air to air and seemed to do little damage. However scouting puts Akyab air base damage now at 48%, closed to offensive operations.

Here is another look at Australia. The highlighted unit was just discovered this turn and I have no idea what it is. The Imperial unit to the ESE of it is the tank regiment that has been fleeing fierce air attacks. It will be visited by 2 squadrons of B-26s from Cloncurry tomorrow.

Carriers west of Ceylon! There are raids afoot in multiple oceans by the IJN. One, a probable surface group, has been identified by good search coverage west of Fiji. The other, beyond the range of available search coverage, surprised only a pair xAKL that were delivering food, medicine, and reading material (OK, OK, ammo too) to Addu Atoll in the Indian Ocean.
quote:


Afternoon Air attack on TF, near Addu at 16,52

Weather in hex: Heavy rain

Raid detected at 15 NM, estimated altitude 10,000 feet.
Estimated time to target is 6 minutes

Japanese aircraft
A6M2 Zero x 16
B5N1 Kate x 12



No Japanese losses

Allied Ships
xAKL Agnes, Torpedo hits 3, and is sunk
xAKL Ardent, Torpedo hits 3, and is sunk



Aircraft Attacking:
12 x B5N1 Kate launching torpedoes at 200 feet
Naval Attack: 1 x 45cm Type 91 Torp

Scouting says "BB CV" and "fighters 24 bombers 7 auxiliary 6" and they are 120nm WNW of Addu. Only the 2 ships are sighted. A few subs have been in reserve for such an occasion, and they will put to sea tonight to lay in the path (& path of withdrawal) of the pirates. We have two CVs and a CVL at Bombay and Force Z arrives there from Cape Town in two days, but true strength of the enemy is unknown. Search assets have been re-tasked and perhaps the new day will bring more information. Of course there is a steady stream of merchants running Cape Town <--> Bombay that might get caught. The IJN carrier(s) could in theory be in strike position of that shipping lane in 2 days. Beyond that line are a few tankers, and will be a troop/aircraft convoy from Aden for Karachi that arrives on map in 3 days.

The possible surface group has just crossed the line between Nadi and Noumea and is 280nm from Nadi. Scouting says they are heading east with 3 ships including a CL, but that seems that it must be incomplete. Again here search assets' assignments have been tuned to track the privateers. There is a merchant unloading at Suva known to be spotted by Imperial vultures, so that might be the intended target. Wasp just this day upgraded her Devastator TBs to Avengers and will sortie after sundown.

Still no further attack at Hengyang, but a big & nasty surprise as the forest hex to the west - on the rail line - is now occupied by an unidentified Imperial unit. No indication that any of the Empire's troops were moving that way and it clearly took a long time for them to get there. Our own troops were already on the way but obviously too late!

A mild rebuff, or more accurately a lack of outright success, for the Empire at Warazup.

The odds only grow in their favor and that will get worse as more and more units escape.

In Australia our tank destroyer Bn was bombed and lost a light armored car. Their being discovered will slow their progress in trying to cut off the Imperial tank regiment (BTW weather prevented attacks on that unit from Cloncurry). Our tank units, but not the infantry brigades, have caught up to 3 enemy units NW of Tennant Creek that certainly include the 2 beleaguered infantry regiments. They will attack tomorrow with strong air support.

Here is the overview map. In addition to the raiders note the submarine making for the West Coast.

In China the air attacks are truly murderous, and could themselves lead to the abandonment of the Changsha area. Intel indicates that DAW already has units prepping for Kweiyang.

In Australia, our tank destroyer unit made good time today as P-38 angels intercepted a raid of Betties and probably shot down all of them. 5 were counted in the raid, 3 claimed, and 6 tallied by the Intel Monkeys in the day's losses. Our own tactical bombers made unmolested runs on the fleeing tank regiment and did damage. The unit still moved to the intercept hex ahead of our tank destroyers, who will arrive there tomorrow.

To their west our armored forces took a toll of the retreating infantry regiments.

The following infantry have not arrived but should tomorrow, too late to attack. So, the armor will attack with only air support again tomorrow. One unit will be in pursuit mode.

The carriers in the Indian Ocean have been lost to search. That almost certainly means they are not moving up the coast, but they could still be moving forward closer to the edge of the map.

There is a group newly seen in the Bay of Bengal within striking distance of Chittagong that scouts as 6 x BB, 1 x CL, and 2 x DD. Some fighters are being moved from Chittagong

Meanwhile there is more action in the Pacific. There are destroyers at least, moving SE far to the NNW of Fiji, and the "CL" to the west of Fiji is now scouted as 8 ships including 3 battleships. They are 7 hexes from Suva, but USMC dive bombers there did not launch on them (max range = 7). The dive bombers will go back to Pago Pago rather than risk being destroyed on the ground in a nighttime bombardment.

Here is a look at the scouting of the area.

Hmmm, maybe! I think the appearance of the raid past India and the BBs or whatever they are showing up near Fiji must have been coordinated. I wonder if they are distraction to slip raiders in north of Hawaii? Yhe last (meaning "other of the two") surviving BBs from Pearl Harbor is currently slow transiting that route to Bremerton. Maybe the carriers will stand watch when their troop convoy is close enough to Hawaii.

There were the usual unopposed raids over China and raids of all descriptions by both sides over Burma. This battering of a superior-on-paper Imperial force was notable.

There were two additional raids by squadrons that became separated from the main body. And while the crews are exhausted, all made it home. Akyab air base scouts as 59% damaged.

In Australia the Empire's Airedales accomplished little, but Allied air forces had effect. The tank destroyers are now in position and will attack tomorrow. The armored attack with one unit in reserve against the two fleeing regiments did damage but without retreating the enemy. Now the infantry is in place. They will attack tomorrow with all three armored units are ordered to pursue.

Another of the Empire's units crossed into Hengyang, and I must confess that I have not kept track of which unit arrived when and got damaged how much. This unspecified unit seemed to smash itself.

If only our own troops were in any shape to attack! Disruption is high among many units and supplies are low.

There is no word on either of the IJN raiding forces. In particular the surface force that was nearing Fiji has now vanished as has the DD force to the north, although weather in the area is poor. Wasp herself, NE of the Line Islands, got a scare when an SBD crew reported ships of their own task force as enemy contacts. Doh!

Here is a look at China. Aside from the bloodied status of the IJ forces at Hengyang, there is another possible sign of fatigue among the Imperial Army. The open terrain hex bordering Changsha, Siangtan, and Hengyang has been abandoned in favor of moving those troops into Changsha. Perhaps DAW sees an opportunity to concentrate forces and blow out Changsha - possible - or perhaps the Empire has wearied of costly river crossings.

In the nice open tank country the armored units pursued swiftly and will attack tomorrow. The infantry will move along the road to join our recon unit, which blocked retreat that would have kept the infantry regiments following their companions. The tank destroyers will not pursue but instead will withdraw. While Daly Waters looks vulnerable there are additional, fresh, enemy forces moving from Katherine and we are getting deeper into air range of Darwin.

At sea, there is no sign of the pirate carriers in the Indian Ocean or of the battleship pirates near Fiji. There is, however, a new contact 360nm WSW of Johnston Island moving east. 1 ship only was sighted, and a float plane overflew Johnston Island. Wasp is to the south of this track and Hornet to the north (NE Hawaii escorting a troop convoy). Enterprise and Yorktown are escorting Oklahoma north in case raiders are trying to slip in via that route with all the obvious contacts elsewhere. We'll see what develops with refined contact information.

Here is wide view of the pirates latest foray. The contact at Fiji is a submarine.

The night brought good tidings as USN SS Pickerel both torpedoed and shelled xAK Kizan Maru near Bathurst Island, leaving her a flaming wreck. A reversal was had when the inevitable finally happened and 15 Blenheims were lost over northern Burma. In Australia our air forces continued pounding the Imperial invaders. Finally Allied armor dealt its final blow of the current campaign.

B-17s hit Akyab in waves, losing two of their own but claiming several enemy in the skies and on the ground. The air base scouts as 52% damaged.

There is no sign of either the carrier pirates in the Indian Ocean or the surface pirates near Fiji. The single ship near Johnston Island has become 2, but the weather was too awful to get any further usable information. They are still about 8 hexes distant having only drifted SE a bit.

There is a sighting 120nm south of Nauru Island that is more definite.

The good news is that we destroyed a bunch of IJ combat squads. The bad news is that they disabled a whole mess of ours. Looking deeper, our adjusted AV reflects the supply deprivation and the pounding from air raids that our troops are enduring. It looks as though the forces the Empire has in place can, with patience, take the city.

The other development was also bad. The 45th Indian Brigade, trapped in the jungle in Burma, is now on the brink of collapse.

In a bit of good news further scouting puts Akyab airfield at 70% damage, fully closed to operations. Half the B-17s will hit the port tomorrow. The other half will rest another day to continue working on the airfield the day after. There are strong ground forces both in Akyab and on the road between Akyab and Cox's Bazar. If we are forced to fight a slug fest there then let's make the most of it and give them a good battering.

All pirates have now disappeared from search. Presumably none slipped through to rear areas, but they could always get there by other routes anyway. All of our carriers at sea remain unspotted so far as we know. The large troop convoy will make Pearl Harbor late tomorrow. After unloading some ships will stay there while others make a quick trip back to San Francisco to load up for another run.

Here is an Intel screen. The ground losses keep mounting.

Hornet has been discovered by (I think) sub-based aircraft south of the island of Hawaii (Hilo & Kona). The TF is changing course just to avoid giving away tomorrow's position in case of an ambush. The detection is 10/10 which I don't recall ever seeing before for a sub-based aircraft contact. The aircraft was reported by spotters as a float fighter, so maybe they just got a particularly good look? I plan to leave those subs alone for the time being, figuring that I can leave them to search an area that my ships will now avoid. The solid carrier contact should convince DAW that it's a good place to post subs.

Meanwhile there is a single ship sighted 240nm (slightly N)NW Howland Island heading SW. That might be the pirates seen recently near Johnston Island.

Today was mostly air action, the highlight being when about half a dozen Betties and a Nell were brought down by P-38s LRCAPing our recon unit 92mi from Daly Waters. Katherine was also hit by a concentrated B-17 raid but only scouts at 16% damage. There were 5 supply hits which is productive. The B-17s did not fly against Akyab and now there are fighters back there. Tomorrow all B-17s are ordered to fly, half against the airfield and half against the port.

The only ground action was the reduction of the 45th Indian Brigade to 1 AV remaining enabled.

When the Empire's forces at Hengyang are ready for battle I expect they will make short work of the defenders, and then the whole region.

Here is a look at the position of that pirate force.

Does the enemy have any AMCs left? In my own game against the AI it liked to put them in the area between Suva and PH. They started out there but were quickly spotted by CA float plane and taken care of.

So there were even more subs in the area than we had seen. I think the concentration of these subs is evidence that the recent pirate sightings are a coordinated campaign. IJN subs are also more active across the board.

There was nothing left of War Sirdar.

8 Beauforts with trained torpedo pilots attacked an IJN cruiser force parked off of Cox's Bazar without escort. The cruisers did have escort, and all Beauforts were lost. Then:

This only hinders building as the support personnel take the worst of it as usual. The IJA also delivered a blow by finally striking again at Warazup.

They are pursuing into the jungle as well! The 45th Indian Brigade lives another day, but nobody knows how. The B-17s did their work and lost one. The airfield is now at 67% and the port at 5%. The groups that hit the port are good to go for tomorrow as well.

It seems that weather precluded most strikes in Australia. Here is a look at the current situation.

The nighttime naval bombardment of Cox's Bazar did little outright damage but soiled many britches. The B-17 raid on Akyab's port did some damage and shot down at least two Imperial fighters. The 45th Indian Brigade has been wiped out and must be reconstituted with new electrons.

Look at what the Catalinas have picked up heading toward Fiji.

We caught many Sallies without escort over Burma and took down 15. The Intel Monkeys also report that 3 Jakes were reported lost for operational reasons. The only ground combat was a bombardment at Kweilin. However, there are now 9 IJA units heading up the road toward Tuyun. Our first line of defense, just inside the forest, is falling back to the join other forces and create a stronger line of resistance in the rough+forest just outside Tuyun. Additional forces have been rushing to the front but are still a long way off.

Tuyun should still hold long enough to be reinforced in time. The real problem in China is the imminent turning of the Changsha position. At that point troops will have to run under the hammer blows of IJA air attacks.

The new day reveals more Imperial ships. Carriers to the west, cruisers to the east. Funafuti has been reconnoitered by the air and is now known as a seaplane base. The AVDs are pulling back while the Cats have just flown out to a pre-supplied, pre-staffed secondary position.

Wasp and Hornet are both on the way but are separated by more than a day. Wasp will fly off her air groups to Pago Pago rather than risk taking on the IJN carriers alone.

So the on-map scouting is an underestimate; instead of 20 bombers a minimum of 50. The Wasp air group has just flown ashore at Pago Pago (only 23 hexes distant from the enemy carriers) and Wasp will move back to rendezvous with Hornet.

Here is a look.

I hope that the loss ratio means we have a slight bit of breathing room, but I know things can get worse in a hurry. Fortifications did not make level 1 before the attack, and have been knocked back from 50% to 20%. Hengyang will fall fairly soon.

Here is a look at the Intel screen for those keeping tabs on IJA bloodshed.

The was uneventful otherwise concerning combat. In China some troops continue to rush at full speed while others wait for the other shoe to drop.

In the Coral Sea there is an odd sighting. Either it is an error in TF orders or bait consistent with recent sightings elsewhere.

Quiet combat-wise. The usual air attacks, and the P-400s from Ledo managed to take down maybe half a dozen or more bombers despite their escort. The TF seen in the Coral Sea is probably at Milne Bay and might have been taking a circuitous route to avoid submarines.

Even though our heavies got roughed up on the mission against Akyab yesterday, today Akyab scouts as 69% airfield damage and 7% port damage. That means the airfield is shut down to CAP operations, yet there are 25 fighters present. They're a bit tired with only one day of rest, but all the B-17 squadrons have been given orders to hit Akyab tomorrow.

Here in China (see below), the break should come at Hengyang (highlighted). At least one IJA unit is moving into the forest south of Hengyang. As a defensive move this would be confusing, so I'll presume it is a flanking maneuver. That will take time, which might mean that DAW HQ lacks confidence in taking Hengyang as quickly as I think it might fall. Giving his battered spearhead time to recover, perhaps? That might give us the time we need to get the next lines of defense in place and make certain that the fall of the Changsha area does not result in the fall of China.

We lost 6 x B-17 against Akyab even with it so damaged, so clearly the Empire's best are on duty in the skies over Burma.

In better news, the IJA tried another probing attack near Changteh, hoping we had weakened defenses there too much.

Here is a look at quiet central Australia. We are pulling units back to make sure they draw supplies from bases other than Tennant Creek so we can build up facilities there. More attention is being given to bases along the northeast coast too.

After yesterday's results over Akyab the Blenheims were detailed to seize the opportunity and hit the port today, with several squadrons of escorts. They went in alone, arrived amid severe storms and worse CAP. Lost 20, achieved nothing.

An attack on an infiltrator north of Kweilin got somewhere but disabled even fewer squads than did Imperial air attacks at Hengyang.

The losses are beyond any I've seen before, although no units were destroyed outright. The retreat direction is what you might call "sub-optimal" and we will have to scramble to get to the forest.

The Chinese forces attacked again near Kweilin and made more progress. They will have another go tomorrow with a newly arrived unit participating.

Way over in Australia, supplies in Tennant Creek have increased over the last several turns and now stand at 153! Even better, the pace of building has increased markedly and the daily supply limit is 600. That will increase soon as airfield construction stands at 3+91%. Along a similar vein, supplies and construction speed are slowly building in Kalemyo and Cox's Bazar along the India-Burma border.

Here is a look at the situation in China. My instincts were to withdraw previously, but I stayed against my better judgment! The highlighted hex is where Chinese forces were retreated to from Hengyang. Imperial units are already heading to cut them off and you can be certain that air attacks to interdict their movement will be constant. Two units have been ordered to move and block roads and attempt to obstruct Imperial movement, hopefully for just long enough.

BB Oklahoma has made it safely to Bremerton, plus begun both repairs and upgrades. She will still be undergoing repairs 4 months from now when her 7 months long mega-upgrade begins. We lost a bunch of P-40s and P-39s when the escorted B-17s (you know, the ones that don't need any escort!) to Akyab. The base was well hit, at least. In a turnabout the P-400s out of Ledo made up for it by knocking down perhaps even a slightly greater number of Imperial fighters and bombers. At sea, Grenadier is showing how it's done!

A lone Imperial star destroyer has been spotted mid way between the Solomons and the Gilberts, heading SE. For their part the Imperial submarines continue to be very active but we have avoided trouble since that small tanker was destroyed.

In China there was just a little good news, north of Kweilin.

That force is now moving south to Kweilin as the current garrison moves north along the road to the west. Got it? Over at Shaoyang, NW of Hengyang, an Imperial armored unit entered the city before our blocking unit could exit. There were already very heavy air attacks on this unit, so clearly more are planned for tomorrow along with an all out attack by the armored unit. To the east, at Siangtan, air attacks were very heavy but even still a number of our units fleeing westward might make Shaoyang tomorrow. Hopefully they will and spoil the Imperial blitzkrieg. The Chinese Air Force will make an all out effort to suppress the Imperial armor. Hopefully their appearance will be a surprise.

Here is today's map of the crisis area. The critical town of Shaoyang is highlighted.

No one expected them. Tomorrow they will probably be wiped out to the last plane. It is still likely that the Chinese army will be trapped due to the way the retreat algorithm works, but at least today they made a difference.

Tomorrow the two USA divisions at Chittagong should begin upgrading their squads to '42 standard, a process that will take 6 days to complete. After that they will move out.

There is again a raiding force (at least) heading toward the Ellice Islands (the 2nd TF is 5 unidentified ships). The Cats have moved and the AVDs are running. Should Wasp and Hornet intervene?

There were Allied amphibious operations at:


A poorly scouted IJN TF has appeared on the outskirts of Cat coverage north of the Ellice Islands, 40nm NE Nanumea.

Tennant Creek is building nicely, now at airfield level 4 with fortifications 3 for a supply limit of 700. If I interpret the rules correctly that means 2,100 supply per week maximum (3 x due to distance from other bases). Supplies are up to 559 and construction is much faster than before.

Our forces began movement to outflank the Imperial troops outside of Akyab and they have instantly responded, moving toward meeting the Australian division. The plan is for both Australian divisions to move into the jungle across the river, and move down to cut off landward supplies and retreat for the forces at and around Akyab. The two American Army divisions will move directly on Akyab with the assistance of armor. In four more days those two divisions will have finished upgrading their squads and will move out.

In Burma a large group of base forces fleeing through the jungle was caught.

The USA 308th Base Group did not retreat! They will take one for the team tomorrow.

Lots of air attacks with another 10 Chinese bombers going down. There are few left now so they shall stand down. Siangtan has been invested by Imperial troops and so DAW HQ should declare it captured at sundown, a fact that will remove the possibility of wrong-retreat direction. Imperial air attacks were heavy, but the ground troops at Hengyang must have required rest as there was no ground assault there. At Kweilin the Empire did attack, to DAW's consternation no doubt.

Siangtan was not occupied at sundown yesterday, so it's fortunate that our forces at Shaoyang were not retreated. The IJN has finally drawn blood in the busy waters off Bombay.

Those fighters came out of Chittagong as Cox's Bazar is still without an airfield. Or much in the way of supply.

In ground combat Siangtan was captured, which at least should wipe out the fortifications. The 308th was laid low in the jungles of Burma as predicted yesterday and now it appears the IJA has given up the pursuit. The Empire made several attacks in China, seemingly using only armored units on the line.

Akyab airbase is scouting as 87% damaged with 24 fighters present. The B-17s will go tomorrow and see if they can hit any. The Americal Division has finished upgrading squads and will await the 27th Division before moving out (3 days).

The IJN TF 40nm NE Nanumea now scouts as 5 ships, 2 x BB. Here is the Intel screen.

Lots of air attacks on our retreating troops in China, but only a probing bombardment at Changteh. The only explanation is that the Imperial forces at Shaoyang were basically spent and have been recovering. More troops exited there today, and some will tomorrow. But not all - will they be attacked?

The rest of the retreat is orderly, but we are losing lots of supplies to over stacking on the roads.

We lost 2 x B-17 in the raid on Akyab, and claimed a few fighters although none on the ground. The airfield scouts at 70% damage. Several bombers were claimed when attacking our Australian division that's moving off the road. Rain tomorrow in Burma, but with B-17Fs coming available soon (pool is building) the heavies flying from India will be making themselves felt more and more.

Here is an overview map.

A big surprise - only two of our units remained in Shaoyang when the attack came. They were already smashed and got smashed further but only retreated rather than destroyed. Troop movements indicate that DAW has ordered the next round of infiltrations.

Grayback scored against a troop convoy.

The Australian 10th Cav Recce Rgt has arrived at Carnavon and found the city abandoned by the Empire. They will effect the capture tomorrow and then move on to Exmouth. Over in Burma there are now seen Imperial troops leaving Akyab crossing the river to the east.

Quite a little armada for the Empire to again capture Funafuti. And they carried it out while the USN had a multiple APD re-supply operation underway to top of supply at several pre-supplied seaplane bases. The IJN forces are too much for Hornet and Wasp to take on alone.
