This is a fast test - to get a sense of how things are working - and a demonstration if/that the technical features of RHS are working. Additional tests will follow - with more opposition. It is expected this series may last a long time - in order to examine things that do not appear early in the scenario.

RHS is a team effort - and features art and technical files from several people (collectively the RHS team). This is scenario 101 - a variant of stock scenario 1 - a whole theater, historical game. There are many additional units, locations, aircraft and devices. Missing things, if identified, are here present: even relatively obscure aircraft types (night recon planes early in the war, the Schneider railway gun, long range unarmed G3M3KAI able to fly above 30,000 feet at G4 distances, the remarkable CW-21 Demon fighter - in NEI and potentially in China, etc - the list is long). There are seasonal pwhexe files, with considerable impact on various regions - divided into Winter (Nov to Feb), Spring (Mar & Apr), Monsoon (May to Aug) and Fall (Sept and Oct) - with the best navigation being in the fall - when the Arctic Ocean is open all the way to river mouths (plural) in both Siberia and North America. Unpaved roads may turn to trails in the Monsoon in wet places (see Burma for example). Rivers that freeze in the North may have ice trails or even roads - as in fact does Lake Baikal - but in Spring "break up" you can neither sail nor drive on them! We use different device definitions to attempt to address problems related to air combat, AA combat, bombardment combat, etc - and radically - ASW combat - where we have a wide variety of new devices - including eventually Mark 14 homing torpedoes, ASW bombs, "smart" DC and a structure oriented to the DC pattern size - so a ship carries "shots" defined as the number of patterns it can fire - naturally the bigger the better - rather than defining attacks in terms of a single DC rack or thrower evaluated per each - which isn't how they are used. Ahead throwing weapons rate a different attack - so ships with them get two different "shots" at the same target. You can tell the armament of a plane by its name suffex: AP = Armor Piercing bombs; GP = General Purpose bombs; AS = ASW bombs or DC; TP = torpedos - even BW for 25kg Uji biological warfare bombs (defined with great soft value but no AP value at all). To that end, you often get more than one version of the same plane - and you pick which equips any given air unit.

Note there are many additional locations on the RHS map - which is the stock map simply with more locations and a different pwhexe file beneith it.
One of those is here below - Baguio City is a major location in Northern Luzon - inland - malaria free - a resource hex - an airfield - and self feeding (one can feed an army for years - and Yamashita used that to leverage how the war ended). It is assaulted not by amphibious troops - but by a naval airborne battalion - already in Formosa - using three small detachments of planes that each had the range to permit the op - including all four G5Ms (which served the entire war in the transport role). Otherwise new locations attempt to make sense out of the many "roads to nowhere" on the map - giving economic and/or military reasons for their existence - and making offensives slower - because there are more points where the defense can fortify. On the other hand, it complicates the defense - there are more potential useful invasion sites - or airborne landing sites - to defend.

Here is the combat results of the first turn of the demonstration game with only minimal aid to the AI for the Allies. This took the form of serious anti-air warfare patrols in Hawaii, Malaya and the Philippines (CAP, LRCAP and Sweep criss crossing to different bases to increase the chance of CAP finding enemy raids); strong recon and naval attack assignments; limited ASW air assignments, and no evacuations because no one yet knows how bad the coming storm will be. Except - Hong Kong ordered a general sortee of all craft - set to head for Manila, Brunei or Singapore - depending on the range of the vessel - at full speed if possible. This because RN predicted war "on or after 7 Dec" based on sigint evaluation that all merchant ships would be in home waters by that date (that is, 8 Dec Singapore time). Since all three destroyers and both gunboats - and a tanker - at HK managed to escape - I tried to duplicate that - and here succeeded.

Here is the combat report for the first turn:

Complete with some minor mysteries:

Why did a group of Ki-27s penetrate two hexes into Russia - meet an equal number of I-16s -
and lose 9 of their number (for no successes)?

Why did an invisible Russian (patrol?) penetrate three hexes to capture a town in Manchukuo?

Why did RTAF ALLIED Hawks make an (ineffective) air strike today?
There were RTAF fighters on the Allied side YESTERDAY - not today.
And their base was captured - and their unit automatically went away at turn start.
As I said - a mystery. There will not be Allied RTAF Hawks again until mid 1945.

Here is the combat report: weather was a big problem for KB - and also it covered force Z -
which is still crewling up the Malaya coat toward Patani and Singora - where the enemy is lainging.

It is doctrine - no one has to tell a sailor

if attacked in port, ships are to sortee

with maneuvering room, you never know what might happen?

On the second day, every surface warship worthy of sailing formed up
into four major task groups, and went out on different vectors - looking for
trouble. A fifth group of PT boats joined them on its own vector, but range
required they return to PH at once.

Only one of those groups was spotted by KB - and I decided to go after it -
1 CA - 1 even bigger CL - and about 10 destroyers - not a fair fight -
and besides - if they closed - vs two BB and two CA and 7 DD - it would be
a Japanese sure fire win, right?

Wrong. The Allies also spotted KB with land based air - and ordered all four
TFs to close on its last known position. One of those vectors happened to
be reciprocal of KB's own course - and they met - at night - at 1000 yards!
No one had to tell the sailors to shoot at carriers either!

And Force Z is within one hex of a landing TF - covered by bad weather - and
likely will get to have its battle tomorrow.

One advantage of a test in which I play the computer

(from a written script - orders are by rules - not judgement)

is that I know where stuff was on both sides.

Here I was CERTAIN

either Force Z would tangle with surface ships

or it would be hit by air strikes

or both.

An enemy amphib force was only one hex away

its escort broke off to become a covering force

three other surface TFs swept in to meet it - all 2 to 4 heavy units -
BB or CA - plus destroyers

Every sort of plane was on duty - and recon for both sides was
from multiple directions

both sides also had some fighter cover

But na da! the amphibs ran - contrary to orders - so damaged are they that they will not offload if they go anywhere -

Force Z and a tiny DD force both swept in and went back to Singapore without finding anything but a submarine - which they practically killed

Another surprise was four DDs - famous ones for a raid a few days later in time - scared Japanese amphibs out of landing on Borneo - simply by being sighted

These games convince me that in WITP/AE one should oppose invasions with subs and surface forces - however weak - they mess up invasion timetables badly - and often score something too.

In this turn, history repeated itself in part

both game history - Force Z continued to sail under cloud cover - and evaded most air attacks.

but also real history -Two squadrons of fighters - assigned air cover - for reasons unclear decided to cover merchant ships and not the warships - on the opposite side of Malaya! So Force Z was uncovered as IRL. Many messages said Army raids "were unable to locate target to range or weather" - and clouds made it clear it was the weather

yet a single small raid of Navy torpedo bombers did find them - and scored a single hit - which you would not think would be decisive - right? It was on Repulse - and her too thin protection scheme failed - the magazine exploded - and it sank at once!

We have an interesting Allied attack at Linguyan. A corps level attack vs a strongly supported First Formosa Regiment - Army HQ is there - a battalion of 15 cm guns - the division recon regiment (almost armor) - etc. The Allies got hurt with disproportionate casualties - never mind achieving respectable odds.

Another interesting attack is on airborne at Balinta pass. These guys walked in from Baguio city - and were surprised by 4 units - including tanks. The Allies promptly did a shock attack - and almost wiped out the unit - 300 of about 400 effectives became casualties - although the unit managed to retreat back where it came from.

Two more guerilla "regiments" (battalions) were wiped out in China. I make it look too easy. One was lucky - note another survived in spite of 219 to 1 odds against it. The trick is beat em up with air strikes, then hit em with shock attacks from large forces. Even so - it took all this time to clear vital rail lines - from small battalions in the rear.
