Again the same bombardments around Changsha, again similar results but this time 4 combat squads of ours were destroyed in Hengyang. Spies tell us that the mine fields at Bataan blasted IJN DMS W-10.

Carriers located!

Same bombardments around Changsha with similar results. No sign of Imperial activity in or around the Timor Sea, but our search assets there are limited to submarines and any friendly coast watchers that report. A TF carrying the USA 27th ID to Christmas Island has been spotted, most likely by an aircraft-carrying sub.

And again the same bombardments with similar results. At Tarakan Imperial troops attacked and this time they achieved about even casualties. Still, Tarakan stands tall!

Through diplomatic third party channels, SVC has recommended that the defenders of Tarakan being recognized for their tenacity. KB might be located as a massive radio source in the Java Sea, 120nm NNE Soerabaja. If so, what it was doing near Babar is a bit of a mystery. TF 66, bound for Christmas Island with the USA 27th ID, is hidden from prying eyes under a cloak of extreme overcast. They will make port tomorrow.

Here is a look at the other DEI stronghold, Bandoeng.

A supply and fuel convoy is unloading at Sydney. The situation in China has changed a little bit. Imperial forces have maneuvered to prevent their forces in Hengyang from getting cut off. They also are setting up near Kukong.

San Jose

There were Allied amphibious operations at:


The same bombardments in China, and similar results. If anything, the casualties at Hengyang are increasing. Tarakan is close to falling after taking more casualties today than the Empire's troops.

No further sign of the KB or any additional expansion. In another AAR (someone else's) Vic commented that he has decided not to do a phase 2 in his PBM and I believe he meant this one. Of course that could be misinformation (100% ethical in context - I mean misinformation in the spirit of good competition in a FOW game like AE), or he could have meant it. He also might change his mind at any point. But with his statement in mind, here is an overview map filtered to show only bases for both sides, no ship or air units or ground units.

Here is the big difference, the China-Burma border. The unidentified Imperial unit, which long ago stopped moving into the mountains off-road, has just moved along the road into the same hex as the Paoshan advanced guard.

The same bombardments again, this time the IJA felt a bit of pain too. The unit near Paoshan turns out to be an infantry regiment.

Ground combat at 64,45 (near Paoshan)

Japanese Bombardment attack

Attacking force 4077 troops, 32 guns, 1 vehicles, Assault Value = 128

Defending force 2633 troops, 1 guns, 0 vehicles, Assault Value = 118

33rd/B Division

Defending units:
22nd New Chinese Division

The wrinkle this turn is that more Imperial forces have been identified on the road astride Katha.

You seem to be holding on pretty good in China! How is the supply situation?

My own experiences with China that does seem to align with most AARs is that China is pretty much borked for the Allies. I think I could have held on to it if the supply situation wasn´t so abysmal!

You seem to be holding on pretty good in China! How is the supply situation?

My own experiences with China that does seem to align with most AARs is that China is pretty much borked for the Allies. I think I could have held on to it if the supply situation wasn´t so abysmal!


Supplies are terrible in China! He got the Burma road closed pretty early on and I didn't get much (if anything, I forget) shipped into Burma that could have made its way into China. In this game we are using the optional stacking limits, which definitely has an effect. Even still, in games without stacking limits I haven't yet been pushed out of the most critical areas of China. It certainly could happen, but maybe China isn't "borked", just difficult and prone to punish errors on both sides? Dunno.


  • Without stacking limits the Chinese have to use their numbers or else an IJA Death Star will simply roll through them.
  • Most critical, is that with or without stacking limits the Allies must use good defensive terrain in China.
  • Another element is time. One player estimated that about 1/3 of all Chinese squads begin the game disabled. That sounds correct to me from what I've seen. So the Chinese Army will grow stronger just given time and a modest amount of supply.
  • Defense in depth is important, and perhaps more important with stacking limits because the front line can hold fewer troops. As supply and withdrawal (and sometimes retreat) are important you must keep forces from being cut off lest they be destroyed.
  • Force preservation: see previous point.
  • Conserve supplies. I have figured out that you can draw some replacements in China, but you have to manage that. Most infantry units should have replacements off almost all the time. Build fortifications as needed but never try to build anything over level 6, and be prepared to shut down all but critical fort building if supplies are getting critically short.
  • Recon in China is sorely lacking for the Allies. You must post units as sentries in certain places because otherwise you will be surprised by large infiltrations of Imperials and lack the time to respond adequately.
  • Some places simply can not be defended against determined and concentrated Imperial efforts. Abandon them. Some places can be defended only so long as the terrain in front of them holds. Some places can be held well but mistakes can change that. Keep in mind that losing a base and the forces defending it is usually worse than just losing the base. But not always - you must judge the overall situation.
  • The Empire can't be strong and advancing everywhere. Look for opportunities to smash Imperial units: overwhelm, them, trap them, counter attack after they've weakened themselves, etc.
  • Doing the above can create weaknesses that the Imperial player must address, which in turn weakens his attacks elsewhere.
  • Be wary of attacking fortified positions without overwhelming force. The Chinese Army, even more so early on, is poor at overcoming fortifications. You can easily "break on the rocks" an otherwise strong and useful force. Remember that fortifications include terrain!
  • Train the Chinese Air Force as much as you can, but you might have to curtail training to conserve supplies.
  • Train some Chinese bombers on Recon. Recon assets are massively lacking in China!
  • Use the Chinese Air Force in important situations rather than keeping it on the line. The CAF can not sustain attrition so use it in some concentration and get it out of harms way as fast as possible. The same is mostly true of the AVG, as there will usually be too few supplies in China to draw replacement aircraft.
  • When and where things are critical, consider replacing some Chinese LCU combat commanders with better combat leaders. This might only become an option later on when PP are somewhat more available.
  • Generally speaking, do not change the preparation targets of a Chinese LCUs until it has greatly increased its experience level.


There's more that you will pick up in terms of where you might deploy forces and so on, but much of that depends on what your opponent is doing too. the opening positions provide a lot of opportunities for the Imperial player to knock about Chinese units and also for the Chinese player to recognize places that should be abandoned.

Not an expert on China but I sure am learning!

Today the Empire added Light Industry air raids against Sian to its routine. The bombardment at Hengyang was particularly brutal:
quote:


Allied ground losses:
299 casualties reported
Squads: 3 destroyed, 27 disabled
Non Combat: 0 destroyed, 1 disabled
Engineers: 0 destroyed, 2 disabled

The Empire also continued bombarding the unit defending in front of Paoshan, perhaps another addition to the daily routine. Bandoeng made fortification level 3 again. Fortification building will cease there to conserve supplies. At this rate Bandoeng will hold for quite a while.

The same bombardments again. This time the ones around Changsha yielded much more even results overall, even though Hengyang was one-sided for the Empire. The Imperial units astride Katha are now moving up the road toward the 13th Indian Bde (which is guarding the road bend nearest the Indian border). Dutch Harbor is under recon again. No signs of Imperial carriers. Here is an overview map.

The usual bombardments all around, this time including across the river from Ichang. The shelling at Hengyang was bad, and the air raids on the troops added to the mess. According to SigInt it looks like the IJA 14th Division is going to China - on board ship and heading for Canton.

The big story is outside Paoshan where SVC has ordered at least one more unit to move up on the border guard.

The usual bombardments were a little lighter today. In Burma the aerial collection of debris lofted by the bombing of the Imperial troop column in the north has provided evidence of the 15th Army, Imperial Guards Division, and the 33rd/C Division (a regiment).

Freed up a lot of bomber squadrons on the West Coast although there are too few planes for them anyway. At least they are now bought out before they expand size in a few months. Here is a look at the Intel screen.

The Allies still got hurt, but so did the Empire. Various forces now have orders to redeploy from the far coast of India to the Burma border, and ultimately into Burma. So far we are not seeing large forces pushing into northern Burma or any forces at all move on the Burma coast in the areas of Akyab or Ramree Island. If SVC is intent on drawing the Allies into Burma to then make an attack into India when they are out of position, then let's get on with it! If he is intent on putting extra forces into China at the expense of Burma, then let's take advantage of it!

The bombardments were bad today. On the plus side today was the first time that bombing of Imperial troops near Katha was opposed by Zeros and our P-40s escorting came out on top 6 to 4. Ops losses for the Zeros were the key. A tanker convoy has been sighted, probably by a float plane, far east of Hawaii. The aircraft was not sighted but SigInt got its contact report. Hopefully its from a submarine, of course. So, the Empire has continued looking for our shipping lanes!

The Empire's division has reached the defensive positions of the 13th Indian Bde NW of Katha. With luck they will not attack tomorrow as the 16th Indian Bde will arrive in battle formation from Katha the day following.

The bombardments in China waxed bad for us again. Avengers have begun producing into the USN replacement pool. Two carriers' squadrons will be upgraded this month. The April upgrades are done but for a few support ship stragglers. The US Navy has grown stronger! There are now large numbers of tankers plying the Pacific to and from Australia. A brief shortage of fuel a few weeks ago was remedied fairly quickly and now a buildup is underway. More units targeted for Central Pacific targets are on their way to Hawaii from San Francisco. No sign of the KB; it's quite well hidden.

SVC has ordered additional units up to try an dislodge the Allies NW of Katha. Our troops will certainly arrive later, but we are moving up a lot of well-trained 2EB groups that might tip the balance. We also have numerous USA, British, Australian, and New Zealander fighter squadrons well trained and equipped. Enough to rotate them in and out of combat as needed. Additional aviation ground crews are being repositioned to support them.
