These DDs are build for surface action. note the torp tubes and lack of ASW.






Somewhat typical of between the wars US design philosophy - some had more guns -
some even more torpedoes - but the invention of sonar and the US idea of bigger than
world standard DC was thought to be adequate for ASW. These ships fire three patterns -
typical of early ships with only a secondary ASW role - each containing big DC. The
effect of the pattern - as well as its probability of a hit - is statistically calculated. Japanese
destroyers are remarkably similar at this point - also with heavy gun and torpedo armament
and only three DC patterns - but they are smaller DC even less likely to damage. DC
attacks mostly will damage submarines - not kill them. Death comes from cumulative damage,
as a rule - although hitting a mine or being torpedoed or shelled on the surface will get it
done in one shot.

Sid, question about allied industrial repair. Could you please explain why half the USA is damaged? At this rate i will have to turn off allied repair and selectively reactivate what I can afford.

Sid, how do u explain a Soc Seagull w/ a range of 10?





Well - you do see its transfer range is more than twice that?

Unlike most planes, the Seagul flies very low - and if it wants range - it can fly
with "ground effect" -

the champion is probably the Walrus - but there is a similar German plane on the Allied
side - the Russian Val - and the ancient E10 is very similar -

note in test game 4A I just had a clear case of an E10 spotting ships at night
a relic from before radar, it is designed to fly all night (from a CL) and track target ships
and I invented "night vision glasses" for it - but it is the first time I saw them work!
You have to look it up in Japanese Aircraft 1910-1941

What is the mark 10 mod 11 ?






Good catch!

It is UNIQUE to this class.

Argonaut is a gigantic, specialized minelayer - and this mine is for her (alone).
It was beleived this kind of mine - paired with standard ones - would be very hard to sweep.
But it was NEVER used.

The Argunaut was converted to a transport - the very first upgrade does that - and you lose these
mines. It was decided to go with TT launched rather than special stern launched mines using
special tubes. I think it was a mistake - don't convert her - lay mines with her!

She participated in the famous Makin Island Raid as a sort of amphibious ship - with six inch guns!

do you mean the sub warfare formula in this mod is different from regular AE?

This is interesting:





You have a tiny French force in RHS

a land unit on Tahiti (base force including militia)
a larger one on New Caledonia
and an entire regiment of French Foreign Legion at Viet Tri beside Hanoi, its
base
when the Japanese murdered almost every other French officer (at dinner no less)
they missed this unit - on a "training march"
and it managed an epic retreat all the way to Kunming - like the Marines at Chosen
Resevoir - so it is in the game. Don't move it - it generates enemy units! Indochina
has a silly rule that does that when Allied units move in Vietnam - and it works
rather differently than the book says - no border hex required! But it does give
the Japanese a problem getting all the resources of Indochina - together with the
Tonkin Provisional Government (Viet Minh, a static unit farther North). Later they
get help from the future Gen Giap - but I digress.

There is a tiny flight of two airplanes on Tahiti.

And several ships - eventually including a battleship - modified in the US so she has no
planes (but lots of nice AAA). Richeleiu I think is her name. We have lovely art supplied
by Cobra.

On the downside, a French cruiser at Saigon - if it is repaird - might appear on the other side.
It was sunk by US bombers to prevent that.

A look at the Chinese fleet: Sid said something about river supply being more effective than road supply.





In two senses:

you have more control of when and where supply (resources, fuel, oil, units) move

and you can move units faster than marching overland.

Riverine naval forces are not as easy to sink as you would guess. And won't happen at all if the
enemy isn't trying - allocating planes and ships to that mission. In places far from the enemy
the Allies should use rivers as logistic assets - India in particular. In places like Manchuria
and China, the rivers might become invasion routes - see Operation August Storm by the Russians
in 1945 - or the US and UK joint offensive in Burma at the same time. The Yangtze has a sort
of Allied headwater zone - with USN, RN and ROC gunboats and river ships at Chunking dominating it -
and a lower Japanese zone - with an Allied sideshow in Central China. It might end up controlled
by either side - but usually doesn't. The Yellow River is mostly Allied controlled - Japan has
a single good base at Kaifeng - and an outlier that is almost doomed to die in the North. The Yellow
river is the only good road in parts of Inner Mongolia - and if you neglect it - you lose resources
and useful locations.

Intersting Unit.






There are two different species of US Equipped Chinese units

these that start the game and use essentially pre war gear

and later ones that appear in India - and have very nice new US weapons -
and US organization and doctrine too - and each division will divide like any US one can.

Different OOB at Hong Kong. Probably more historical. I also note the chinese army is organized w/ all corps close to group HQs.






HKVDC = Hong Kong Volunteer Defense Corps - and it is static - so part of the coast defense unit
But it is pretty big - mg battalions - infantry battalions - support elements - and I think some A/C too.
I have been going to HK since the 1960s and know it well - and was married there too. HK people
call Dec 25, 1941 "Black Christmas" - it is the day the colonly surrendered to Japan.

There are several major changes to Chinese forces. Additional units of several kinds, including guerilla "regiments" which really are
battalion size - and these are semi-independent of LOC - although they benefit from them. In the next turn just posted, I kill two -
hard to do - it takes a shock attack at vast odds to get it done - otherwise they just retreat and regenerate. There are more air
bases - and more air units - no planes locked in places too far to get somewhere useful. There is a small Navy - the main one on the
Yangtze, a tiny one on the Yellow - and a Red one there as well - both Allies - and very small packets on the coast trapped by events -
from East China to Indochina. Note the CNAC - which enters US service a few days into the war - has three different hubs and
three different kinds of planes (DC-3, DC-2 and Lockheed Model 18) - the former were critical in the early days operating out of India.
CNAC is US owned, but Chinese flagged. China also has more industry and is more able to feed itself. I read a complaint in some old
thread today about the "free supply" to Kunming: Never mind about that, the home supply is quite enough. The war is fought over China -
it is the very reason for the war - and it is rich - worth conquering - or holding. I have put in many of the missing resources and industries
- including a factory by the Burma border (at a new location - Low Wing or something like that) which almost got the CW-22 into production -
a fabulous fighter also being made in NEI - and which DID make it into remanufacturing damaged P-40s. It starts "damaged" - but unless
the Japanese threaten it (by taking Northern Burma as IRL) China will produce its own fighters!

Here above, and in Molokai, Big Red laid CAP traps - numbers of fighters at 20,000 feet.
In Hawaii one squadron of Vals was reduced to 5 survivors - never mind they had a dozen
zeros in company - because the zeros were unable to cope with 4 times their number -
the Allied planes dove on them - just as in real life early in the war.

And a bloody mess down in South Malaya: I wanted to see an opposed landing in range of enemy
air - but got more than I wished for!

In the lead group of river vessels trapped at seaports making a run for Chunking - two junks survived
unscathed - never mind opposition by a squadron of gunboats and lots of air units. In the South it is
similar - some have escaped up the Pearl River - or across the South China Sea. As in real life,
looks like the 3 DD at HK will make it - although one took a hit today.

This permits the industry in the USA to "grow" almost throughout the war. Otherwise one must compromise in
the form of too much all the time - or too little later on. Yes - I know it will take a long time. And you don't have
to invest in it either, if you prefer supply points to fuel points! It is part of the power to the players philosophy and
was proposed by someone in WITP days. It is limited to places where it can be afforded as well as where there was
dramatic growth - but it isn't really all there: many more such locations should also grow - it just isn't practical to
put it everywhere.

Re: Events of 10 Dec, 1941 (Moscow Time)

I intended to complain about the incursion of Northern Manchukuo at Moho,
apparently by a patrol too small to be identified by a unit name.

Then came news of a group raid by JAAF fighters 80 nm into Soviet territory,
near Rybolov. Curiously, a smaller number of ancient Russian biplanes achieved
a 6:1 loss ratio - impressive even if they had a decisive altitude advantage.

Now I think it is time to order a stand down of all air operations near our common frontier. It is not clear to me how a fighter raid could occur when none was ordered, but possibly tempers are high after the border incursion, and other events of the past three days.

Indeed, it may all have begun with my authorization of recon flights into Russian territory. If I don't respect borders, why should I expect my officers to? If we don't, why should we expect yours to?

Nevertheless, both of our countries face decisive political and military reasons not to allow this situation to escalate out of control. We both face life or death military contests on other fronts, and cannot easily afford to divert massive forces to this one.

Japanese Foreign Minister Togo, a serving IJA general officer, confided to me that "Every night, I go to sleep, worried about the Russians. Every morning, I awake, but have found no solution." I share his skepticism that the plans of staff, to fight an offensive against the USSR with only 14 divisions, is realistic. In my view it would take two or three times that many just to hold Manchukuo. Note, however, we have over 100 divisions, and are adding 50 more - if pressed we could commit that many. It is simply unwise to do so with so much at stake elsewhere. Also note that you would certainly lost the Kamchatka Penninsula, Sakhalin Island and the entire Eastern portion of Siberia from Magadan Eastward, even if we failed to reduce Amur Province
or take Central Asia. And the cost in casualties would be catastrophic for both sides.

Although I have generally been removing troops from the border - in some cases reducing the front line position by half - replacing them with construction of fortifications - and airfields to the rear of them, you will understand if I dispatch a small cavalry formation to Moho - to restore the flag and prevent another raid there by patrols. I do not propose at this time to change my policy of not massing on the borders.

I suggest we stand down recon operations for a few days, during which we negotiate an acceptable probe rate - on the basis that information builds confidence troops are not massing to invade. During that time we can review how units orders are given to attempt to insure no repeat of today's events.

General Umejo, Yoshijio

These incursions by your forces will nor be tolerated. The air battle demonstrates superior qualities of Russian men and materials. In addition, this experience shows a complete lack of command and control on your part. We will not stand down. We also do not respect your idle threats. Take your planes and control your men.

and this, I thought the replay was corrupted because the computer took so long to finish this combat. I hope the allies will have the same effective types of weaponry.
