From: Northwestern Georgia, USA
Some people seem to have a fundamental problem with communication; others it comes naturally. I'm not sure why. Maybe we're just born that way, like introvert or extrovert. PH showed up this morning, sending a turn and advising that he is in a remote location for vacation with uncertain internet connection. So turns will likely be halting until he returns to civilization.
NoPac: Alliford Bay airfield goes to level four. I think Vals and Kates are based there. Kates bomb the port facility at Prince Rupert, which might be a case of reconnaissance by fire. A US Army division will arrive in Seattle in a few days, enhancing my ability to garrison the northern rail line in Canada on the off chance that Steve intends to land at Prince Rupert and then move inland.
CenPac: Sara and York are about to rendezvous east of Christmas Island.
Oz: Lots of Japanese armor in NW Oz making things tough on the small Aussie units trying to pull back from the Darwin sector. Five transport TFs toting fighter squadrons to Adelaide from the USA (via Capetown) will begin arriving in a few days.
DEI: A Dutch sub misses a shot at BB Haruna in the South China Sea. SigInt that 5th Div. is prepping for Singapore. I would be very surprised to see a large army move on Singers now. If that happens, my bet is that much of the IJA army in Luzon will be split between there and China. I'm watching for that combo, or any other signs I might pick up.
Indian Ocean: Ent and Lex are on patrol near Cocos, while Indomitable and Hermes are further west. Lots of reinforcements are coming in to Aden and Capetown, then moving on to India or the key islands.
Burma: Steve doesn't seem to have enough yet to really push aside the relatively weak Allied garrisons. In fact, the Allies are going to try to push aside a couple of weak IJ units.
China: Here's where the action seems to be. I'm getting pretty good information about IJ troop movements trying to isolate the main Chinese army east (true) of Sian. I'm repositioning some units to meet various vectors of advance, while the main Chinese army looks for an opportunity to attack. Right now Steve seems more interesed in trying to gain an advantage by maneuver rather than by raw strength. My hope is to counter and delay so that time works to my advantage.
