Upon further inspection I see that I have about another 1m tonnes of spare fuel scattered around various places not mentioned above. Which is nice.

Tarawa is now at 2/3 and Tabituea is at 3/3. No offensive activity from either base thus far. My Rufe pilots are itching for a fight ...

Mar 8 1943

Around 60 B-24s out of Rabaul attacked the airfield at Ponape. As before at Truk, the Zeros on CAP did really well, and despatched 13 of the evil 4E beasties. However, the bombers did do some considerable damage, with 9 Zeroes being shot down and another 18 planes (Nells, Jakes, Kates & Tinas) destroyed on the ground. The airfield is not shut down though, and I have moved another Zero unit in for next turn.

In China, next turn will feature a cross-river shock attack at Hengyang and a massed tank deliberate attack at Shaotang.

Time to dump some stuff out ...

First, air losses. You can see that Japan is losing the air war quite badly, but the key point is that it can afford to do so given Scen 2's uber-economy.

Sorry for the lack of updates. I have been distracted with playing DC:CB, which is a great game if you haven't checked it out. We have still been churning out the daily turns though.

I have taken Changsha, which marks the end of offensive operations in China except for Operation Yak.

Meanwhile, he has taken Makin, Nauru and Ocean Island. There have been no air attacks into the Marshalls yet though, just a bombardment at Mili by CA Chicago which received significant sys damage from the 15in guns there.

The subs sitting at Wotje, Maloelap and Majuro are 9kt midget subs with 500 endurance which I created at Kwajalein from supply.

Operation Yak is on for next turn. I have had to change the venue since I didn't actually check to see if the Topsies and Thalias could reach Ansi from Paotow. They can't.

So instead all 4 IJA Raiding Regiments will be deposited at Lanchow using 150 transport aircraft.

I wonder who will be the April Fool?

The IJA transport fleet did not carry quite as many of the troops over to Lanchow as I thought they would. However, the shock attack was not a complete disaster so I will simply finish dropping the troops next turn. Multiple Oscar groups will fly Sweep over the base in case he decides to put some fighters there.

8 April 1943

Today was the day he finally unleashed his bombers in Burma again, with seemingly his entire airforce attacking Pegu. The result - 48 Tojos lost for about 55 Allied aircraft, mostly fighters.

Pegu is now closed, but without further attack should recover within a few days.

Over in China the paras at Lanchow are waiting for enough supplies to arrive before attacking. There has been no Chinese counter-attack.

17 Apr 1943

Nothing major to report.

I tried a DA at Lanchow which really didn't work at all (he managed to reinforce it overland), so have despatched some cavalry from Paotow in order to open up the eastern hex-side so that the paras can escape. He has not counter-attacked. It is fair to say that Operation Yak has been a total failure, basically because I made a false assumption about transport aircraft ranges ...

Air superiority ops via Sweep continue in Burma. His P-38s shoot down my Tojos and the Tojos in turn shoot down P-40s. All a bit pointless, except that the IJA pilot reserve is now officially empty. This does not particularly worry me though, since my primary plan is not to use my airforce to fight in the air.

I am expecting that actual bomb delivery will occur soon at Rangoon/Pegu as a prelude to moving his LCUs in those directions. The 300 or so Oscars of the Swarm await patiently in Thailand for the moment when the British step into a clear hex or actually into one of those bases.

There is now an evacuation fleet ready at Georgetown for the units at Rangoon, comprising Es, APDs and AK-ts, with a minimum speed of 18kts. I have made a tentative decision now to not commit any of the actual fleet units of the IJN until such time as he approaches what I termed the "Inner Hive", i.e. 20 hexes or so from the Home Islands. It would be quite cool to get to 1944 or even 1945 while still having only lost a single DD :-)

I think it is fair to say I am now rather bored with Burma and would really like him to get on with evicting me. The game will get much more interesting once this has happened. He continues to play very deliberately though.

Interesting to see how this is going. I'm curious how the Hive will perform against tough British and Indian AA units. My Helens seems to die at about a 5% rate at 12k feet. At 1k I would be afraid to see the results.

How far are you training your IJA pilots? Do you double train in low ground and air combat skills?

I have already attacked those tough AA units several times. Losses run at around 15% a go, so yes very expensive.

As for IJA pilot training, I was initially doing both Air and LowG but now have switched to just doing one per batch of pilots. This is purely down to a lack of airgroups available for training. Currently I have 2 of these for Air and 4 for LowG.

My thinking now is more about using the Swarm against shipping than against ground targets. Once Burma is over and done with.

I might do some experiments with my Ki-43 IIb and some naval bombing as well. I'm doing some low naval training of fighter groups while they wait for action. I liked your earlier test results with these, although it'll be better of course after they start doing some dives for the emperor in 44.

Even Zeros with their 60kg bombs can be effective in that role I have found in Downfall.

18 Apr 1943

I decided to move my "strategic" bombing force from China to Bangkok in order to have a go at Toungoo, which is the home of the evil P-38s. He has not been CAPing his bases in Burma because occasionally I Sweep over them with large numbers of Toscars which do well against the P-40s and Brit fighters. He has never used the P-38s on CAP.

Not bad results I thought :-)

In other news, I have now decided to crank Naval Shipyards up to 2,400. It seems like my current economy should be able to support this. Warships just don't come off the slipways quick enough. One day I may even be able to re-start the Yamatos ...

The KB in its entirety is re-fitting at Kure, and I am almost tempted to just leave it there after all the ugprades are complete.

Map-wise, I have decided that the Bonins are a key area, and as a result will be despatching some recently arrived engineers and flak to the two main islands of Iwo and Chichi shortly.
