I find out that US marines are suffering a much larger casualties during the invasion than US Army. The similar results showed below happened repeatedly.

2nd Marine Regiment completely lost combat capacity after the landing, despite that this high odd win.

An unexpected CV battle

AFTER ACTION REPORTS FOR Aug 22, 43


Japs tried to bombard Maloelap but the bombardment fleet, mainly the old and slow battleships failed to perform a night bombardment and leave the dangerous sea. Thus the covering KB didn't get to save place, all the bombers on board are still performing ASW tasks so the Allies got a chance to attack without facing counter-attack. This a dream scenario but Allies Dive bombers didn't handle the situation very well.

CVE Shinyo and CVE Hosho are confirmed to sink afterwards, and CV Junyo is reported to be sunk by not confirmed.

After the battle, Japanese Prime Minister Championzhao is forced to resign and ambitious Hongye San took his position.
Let's hope the game will be more interesting from now on.


Attached is the poem post by Hongye San.

AFTER ACTION REPORTS FOR Aug 27, 43


The Japs reinforcements were intercepted by Allies ships and over 2,000 Japs were sent to bottom of ocean today.

Allies SCTF also fight with Japs ships and the damaged Japs ships didn't make it out of the Allies bomber range, two Japanese light cruiser were reported to be sunk during the air strike.

However, bad news is, the ship carrying 2nd Marine Raider Battalion was attacked by Japs bombers and sank. The commander of the 2nd Marine Raider battalion, son of the President of United States, James Roosevelt, was announced MIA in this tragedy.

Good job on those barges and the CL TF!
The CLs and DDs could also have dropped troops at Roi-Namur as a Fast Tpt TF. Any indication they were up there?

Thanks for reading the AAR BBfanboy,

Yes, Japs are sending troops to Roi-Namur through both air and sea. And the number of troops are growing fast there.
I tried to LRCAP Roi-Namur and intercepts Japs Patrol planes, but not very effective.

Good job on Kwaj as well!
I am wondering if LSTs can survive a single mine hit - how did yours do?
What level port/airfield are Kwaj and how damaged are they? IOW, how soon can you use it to bomb Roi Namur?

LST is too fragile to survive a mine I think.

Although by this time of the game, I haven't hit many Japanese made mines yet.

It looks like Japs didn't lay too many mines in these area yet.

The problem of US torpedoes has finally been completely solved.


Japs are so over stacking troops on Roi-Namur that they are enduring severe penalties right now.
70 4E bombers wiped away almost 2,000 Japs on this little Atoll. I guess it's too crowd and they have no place to hide

Nice result! Aoba took two torps as well, if the reports are accurate. She will be crawling away at one or two hexes per phase, so you may get another shot at her!
