Bombardments were modest in China. Air attacks all over there as usual, but there is little industry for them to destroy at their targets. Units continuing to move to and along the Burma border.

Here is a look at some submarine patrol stations. More to come, of course.

SVC has been using the double-edged sword of bombarding my troops. It does cause a lot of supply loss but it also gives the defenders experience, and all the combat units in Changsha are experienced troops with Exp rating in the 50s. Here is an Intel screen for comparison to the one posted a couple of turns ago.

The usual bombardments today, and they were rather minor. Trying to get reoriented after the hiatus. Here is an overview map. (Problem posting a pic. Will update later.)

The IJA has at least one more unit on the way from the east. I plan to follow them from Kweilin and trap them in Liuchow without supplies. At least until another IJA flips a hex side to open it for them.

The usual bombardments. xAKL Proteus has left Normanton with a cargo of 1,167 tons of general supplies (dehydrated ammo, building supplies, food, etc.) for Darwin. The hope is that a lone small vessel can get in and out unnoticed.

I stupidly over stacked Kalemyo, just across the Burmese border from India. One unit is moving back up the trail as fast as it can until other units can finish moving into the jungle. If noticed perhaps this movement will provide some deception.

Just the expected air attacks and bombardments.

An interesting situation has developed around Liuchow in China. Look at the map below and see that the only pathway for supplies to the Empire's troops investing Liuchow is to the east. There was an Imperial unit there, but it just finished moving into Liuchow. Although he has superiority of force there for the moment - IJ: 1,324 AV versus Allied: 1,039 AV - there is another Chinese unit of 229 AV traveling with ETA two days. Two other Chinese units with combined AV of 581 are now beginning to fast march from Kweilin to the woods-rough hex just east of Liuchow, intent on blocking the Empire's supply line.

Notice the hex just west of Liuchow. The Chinese and Japanese units both just arrived there, so neither has control of any hex sides. The IJA unit is now heading NE, apparently intent on cutting the rail line from Tuyun to Liuchow. That will impede the flow of supply to Liuchow, but the IJA unit will then be itself be totally cut off from supply. The identity of that unit is unknown, but the units investing Liuchow are:
quote:


21st Division
67th Ind.Infantry Battalion
12th Ind.Mixed Brigade
17th Division
48th Division
23rd Army

If we can actually run them out of supply and smash or destroy them that would be quite a haul!

The usual bombardments, but air attacks in China were more focused on Kweiyang. A surprising development was a deliberate attack against our forces at Liuchow, with a 2 to 1 result!

We have another unit with 229 AV arriving tomorrow. In three more days the Empire's supply route will be blocked, but perhaps too late? Here is a look at Liuchow.

Casualties were pretty heavy, but that will make supplying the army easier. The victorious Imperial host appears to be splitting up, both pursuing our vanquished forces toward Kweilin and moving toward Nanning. Nanning will certainly be abandoned before they arrive and the army will flee north.

Burma was different. two Indian brigades continued holding off two Japanese divisions, and now it looks as though one or both divisions is pulling back.

An uneventful turn with the movements described earlier continuing. The usual bombardments in China were quite damaging today but the continue to train our forces there to a high level. If ever we get supplies the Empire will rue the day!

The 1st and 5th Marine Regiments arrived today and were assigned the targets of Kusaie Island and Ponape.

Here is an overview map.

There is a full division to the east so our units are now ordered move north as mentioned previously.

Here is a look at the forces in Bandoeng. There are more enemy units on the way so perhaps they tire of watching the last redoubt.

It's good to see those two IJA divisions down to about half each. Here is a look at that situation. Notice too the efforts to flank Ichang.

We're shuffling forces to provide some extra defense to Ichang against the enemy slogging through the forest. As a result we just got hit with a partisan attack in Changteh, which I had overlooked. Hopefully that won't signal SVC to launch a para assault as it will be about 4 days until we cover the garrison requirement.

Really bad bombardment at Hengyang today, 20 combat squads disabled and 3 destroyed, plus a handful of other items. South of Kweilin things went better than yesterday.

That pretty much evens things out over the two days. Our units have 16 miles on and so should make the city in four days. At Nanning it is indeed a division that made the battle area.

Our HQ stayed in move mode for the day and will clear the hex tomorrow. The two combat units switched to combat mode for the expected battle, no doubt aiding their performance. They have 38 miles passed and so might both exit the hex tomorrow. Hopefully both or none.

Here is a look at the Intel screen.

Our troops all exited Nanning as the Imperials were entering the city. They made a full attack into empty fortifications.

Our B-17s in India hit Mandalay and lost two, one A2A and one was a write-off after landing.

This overview map shows bases only. Lots of Allied owned bases behind Imperial lines right now.

Those are the troops making an orderly withdrawal south of Kweilin that dealt another stiff rebuke to the Imperials. The small unit is in the mountains guarding the pass from Burma, now in enemy hands.

Our B-17 raid on Mandalay was a failure, losing 2 for indeterminate damage. A series of sweeps by the Empire over Chittagong were hotly opposed.

SVC has a unit now at Ichang itself, apparently 3 more on the way. We have reinforcements in place and others coming. The trouble for us is the 2 units moving across the swamp as we do not know their strength.

Here you see the min-drama around Paoshan. The RM Viper force will take the road behind the IJA units tomorrow or the day after and block resupply.

The air attacks are taking a toll on the defenders at Ichang. That plus the Imperial reinforcements on the way mean that we still need to rush reinforcements forward. The blocking force that came out of the swamp is much weaker than our forces but, likewise, the air attacks are taking their toll on our troops. Reinforcements will be in place tomorrow, perhaps enough to then push the IJA cavalry back into the swamp.

Milne Bay will be an early target.

Air and ground bombardments, but no further assaults. Two reinforcements have arrive on the road opposite the swamp. One unit is continuing on to Ichang. The original plus the other reinforcement unit will wait for two more reinforcement units before making a substantial attack on the IJA blocking force. Here is a look at the best of the Chinese infantry.

We are moving a stronger unit from Ichang to the positions across the river, but then Ichang itself might fall any day. A strong unit is one or maybe two days from arriving at Ichang. The attacks at Hengyang and Changsha were the big surprises. I must assume that the Imperial troops had recovered significant strength from earlier battles and SVC wanted to probe the defenses.

Weather allowing, the 45th Indian Bde will begin air transport to Ramree Island. Here is the Intel screen.

Next came Ichang and across the river from Ichang.

The other development in China is the IJA's appearance in the open between Changsha and Hengyang, probably moving toward Siangtan.

The 45th has begun arriving at Ramree Island, with a token force so far. Here is a look at the situation in China.

I was pretty tired when I produced the turn yesterday, and instead of the turn file I sent Vic the screen shot you see in the previous post!

He won't look at it. It's essential to have that kind of an opponent when you're an idiot, either from being tired or otherwise!

The bombardment at Hengyang was one of the bad ones, but the real news is from Ichang. Relief arrived and the city held.

I would have loved to see even more damage to the attacker given the final odds, but the Chinese forces are just light on firepower. There are two more IJA units in the forest on the way, but now we have a unit threatening to come in their wake and cut off their supply.

Just air attacks and a couple of bombardments today. Another Imperial unit has made Ichang, strength unknown. In two days another Chinese unit will make the position of the would-be IJA blocking force outside of Ichang, at which time all four Chinese units will attack together to expel the two regiments. The air attacks on Ichang are taking a great toll, as is the lack of supply. The defenders are struggling to get the fortifications back up to level 2 before the next assault.

Massive numbers of Allied air units just withdrew, and many ships will go in for June '42 upgrades as the sun goes down.

The Indian 45th has a noticeable 25 AV plus 14 engineers at Ramree Island. Feverish fort building is the order of the day. Transports and B-17s are flying in supplies.

Can B-17s fly in supplies without an airfield? I know the c-47s can airdrop, just didn't think the heavy bombers could do it without runways.

I'm getting ops report messages that they are. I believe they could & did IRL. Of course there are no details about how much, so there might be some penalty reducing it below their maximum load.

One unit is in good shape and will stand guard (46mi W Ichang) while the others withdraw to recover. The units across the river are now out on a limb that has been sawed off. They will make for the open plain and head for Ankang. There were also the usual bombardments in China, and this on Java.

Many ships entered the yards today. On the border of China and Burma two things have happened. First, the trapped Imperials have moved back to where they can engage the RM Viper force. The terrain allows a small force to cut the road but they will certainly be overwhelmed. Second, another IJ unit has been spotted coming up the road to assist. In return, a Bn is almost to Bhamo from Myitkyina. And, a reinforcement Chinese unit, making its way around Paoshan to avoid over crowding that packed small town, is about 40% of the way across the last mountain hex to reinforce the advanced defensive position.

A little treat for today. Sometimes it's the small victories that make you smile.
