With the Japanese naval losses, it might be time to think about a relief expedition to Luzon . . . on the other hand, maybe CF is expecting you'll do that, and has concentrated his forces there, which is why you aren't seeing much elsewhere.

Java might be an option but would end in losses I don't want to take within the USN, reliefing Luzon would be pure suicide. This of course only if CF would actually do something, which I might expect against such a move. I have been thinking about it but it didn't take long to throw that overboard as some 200 carrier based fighters (300+ if I bring the CVE into play) surely aren't enough to move a big fleet to Bataan and back to Darwin again. There would be just too many airfields and Cuttlefish should have probably more than a thousand aircraft he could employ, not to talk about the rest of the IJN.

Rabaul has been an amazingly easy target, unbelievable Cuttlefish handed it over to me without fighting for it... his LBA is more than a match for my carriers and he has superiority in fighters as he should be able to mass employ Tojos already which I can only effectively fight with my P-38 of which I only have a limited number...

32nd special base force was the only enemy unit left that got real combat value but the airfield attacks disrupted the base force (something that doesn't happen to inf units) and today's deliberate attack finally took the base... phew, that was quite a task... 24th Div isn't looking really good anymore, having suffered well over 100 disabled combat squads I will soon relieve my two Inf divisions and bring in fresh units to finish off the Japanese...

this is how the victory point ratio looks like after the loss of Rabaul and Luganville...

Also attacking NS KNIL Territory Regiment ...
Also attacking Korps Marechausee Battalion ...


if I would be the Japanese, 90% of my airforce would be focussing on anti shipping strikes which is the only thing that can really hurt the Allied, instead the Japanese are bombing trashed Dutch troops sitting without supplies in the jungle of Sumatra... nearly a year into the war without any real fighting (the IJ doesn't want to fight yet) so I would have all my bomber squadrons filled with 70 low nav pilots, just like all my USAAF medium bombers are fully lownav trained (as well as ground bmb) but I doubt the Japanese are doing so...

except the big defeat of the IJN near New Caledonia a couple of months ago this game has been quite boring so far but due to the 100% passivity of the Japanese ever since it has really become one of the most unentertaining PBEM I had so far... there are no enemy convoys, nearly no subs, no aircraft at all near the front and the IJN has vanished completely (except those BB routinely bombarding Bataan )

those torps were duds of course... have sent out roughly 50 of my USN fleet subs to patrol the shipping lanes inside the SRA and those going from the SRA back to Japan to probe the Japanese defenses there... the subs will head back for their 12/42 refit some time in November and will be out for patrol as soon as 1/43 turns around to hopefully do better with a 50% dud rate "only"...

Kendari is nearly empty of enemy troops so the damage done will last quite some time... crazy, my troops are massing at the entrance of the SRA, having a level 9 airfield on Timor and one of the most important bases in reach is more or less undefended and seems to be evacuated by air transport... if I gain a foothold North of Timor then I can threaten halve of the SRA bases, the important ports of Borneo then being in medium bomber range making it suicide to send ships there...

wonder how long this will go on like that... 24th div isn't looking really good anymore, will be taken out of the fight... actually I will relieve both the 24th and 25th from this mopping up battle, they will be replaced by two fresh divisions that are prepping for another offensive target and the two US Divs will head back to Sydney for R&R already preparing for their next target...

we're not only knocking at the SRA's door, we've also had our comeback in Burma... as you can see on the screenshot our troops are marching on Rangoon, most of the enemy units that have been in Burma retreated to Moulmein already and I also expect the rest of the few enemy troops moving to Moulmein without a fight...

ok, the IJN has lost a carrier battle near New Caledonia months ago, and the IJA is still fighting on Luzon (for whatever reason, they should just use some low value troops to guard a POW camp) but does this mean the enemy can't defend anything else and doesn't have a working air force? It seems so or at least Cuttlefish seems to think so because I am marching forward without any resistance... I do understand his move in Burma though, fighting in open terrain would be a sure loss for the IJA as we surely heavily outnumber the enemy...

IJN tanker is sent to hell with a full load of fuel... I got no clue about enemy numbers of new ships in 42 but with the few sinkings I guess the IJN got more tankers now than at start... with no airlosses for most of 42 the enemy must be also swimming in HI already...

Ambon and Kendari are the only two bases around Timor that could be a threat (even though only a small one) but both bases together probably don't even have 12,000 enemy troops defending them... on the other hand we get intel about Imperial Guards division sitting at Victoria Point... does it make sense to anyone to have that elite unit sitting at Victoria Point but having the entrance to the SRA undefended? Or is this a brilliant attempt to lure me into something to defeat the USN once and for all, doing this without decent airfields and inferior numbers of carriers?

my carriers pop up (not spotted previously) alerting Cuttlefish of something happening in the area... it won't be surprising to him that the invasion of Koepang is about to go in, should be another cake walk... Koepang's airfield isn't operational and the garisson there should be overwhelmed quickly by the two Inf divisions plus support... the carrier based strike brings up only a pityful result once more though...

Cuttlefish keeps hunting down the trashed Dutch units on Sumatra using a rgt of 21st Division, a real waste IMO...


interesting intel:

3/110th Division is loaded on a Japanese TK moving to Siargao.

two things really strike me: Cuttlefish is using a TK to move 110th Division? OMG! Wouldn't he have better suited ships to do so and shouldn't he use every frigin tanker to transport fuel back to Japan? And he is moving that division to Luzon????? There are already five or six plus lots of support that are knocking their head onto the wall at Clark Field and instead of moving troops out to defend the SRA he is bringing more troops to Luzon?

Now of course my Army there ultimately will surrender when they run out of supply but this won't happen until some time in December and another enemy division will make no difference... I got no clue about his plans and if I wouldn't know that CF played PBEM before I would really ask him if it wouldn't be better to start defending the SRA instead of (unsuccesfully) trying to take Clark Field that isn't a threat to him at all... needless to say that someone should tell him he should use his airforce but he has just let me do whatever I wanted to since the IJN defeat off New Caledonia...

He is a bit passive indeed it seems O.o . And with these troops at Koepang and Rabaul even the AI would have no troubles taking it (dont want to belittle your achievments but both places cry for a garrison division and some serious forts)

absolutely agree. It's as it is most times in a PBEM, it's not one side being a genius, it's one side giving the other the possibility to look good. Really, all I achieved in this game was smacking the IJN CV/BB off New Caledonia months ago, from there on it was like bringing troops to friendly ports and unload them where I wanted to as there is just no resistance at all, no matter if air, land or sea.

I really got no clue what he's up to, it's like I was doing my turns and he would just fire them up and end them the next second as there are no convoys even near the front (haven't seen any for months), there are no enemy aircraft near the front (I would have to bomb Truk or Soerabaja at max range of my 4E to meet some enemy fighters), the IJN has vanished and he doesn't garisson the frontline at all while I am about to jump right into the heart of the SRA.

Cuttlefish thought about quitting after the New Caledonia disaster and due to the fact he isn't able to take Clark Field in 42 but I convinced him to carry on but from there on it was like taking an empty map without any resistance. He wasn't trying to reinforce places like Rabaul or the front around Timor (the most important at the moment), he actually has been evacuating all these places using air transport. As it is now, I am deliberately slowing down my advance as I don't want to end the PBEM with a big move into the SRA (could land 10 divs on Java and end the game I guess).

He may have a plan and the USN is all from invincible with five CV and five CVE at the moment (no losses) so perhaps he jumps on me and does a reverse Midway, in our case a reverse New Caledonia.

He might be fortifying Philippines and Marianas as heavily he can. Just don't know why he does not make major attack in China, for example.

he would have no chance in China to be honest. All my frontlines are heavily fortified (lvl 6 forts everywhere) and the frontline bases usually have 2000 - 3000av, some more (like Liuchow due to being a clear terrain hex) with thousands of av in reserve to be brought in quickly. I gave up terrain at the beginning and was falling back to my line of defense that goes from Nanning - Kweiyang - Changsha - Chungking - Sian - Lanchow. There was one IJ offensive SW of Sian that was going through empty terrain right to that base NE of Chungking where I mounted my counteroffensive. The Japanese were pushed back for the loss of three or four div/bgd and then they were digging in behind the river South of Ankang (SW of Sian) while my troops hold the other side of the river.

All my troops have long been fully prepped and are fully supplied, got Armies blocking important roads in great defensive terrain where all of the IJ Army in the same spot would fail to break through. Honestly, I can't see any chance for the Japanese in China as China can only be taken when you start mopping up from day one due to the setup and the game mechanics or later on if the Allied player really does some horrible mistakes. I haven't counted it up but I probably have something like 30000 av in China and as soon as I will have secured Burma (just a matter of weeks) supply will flow en masse into China. I am not thinking to do any offensives in China any time soon though, no matter how much supply or av I have there.

If I would be Cuttlefish I would not have tried to take Clark Field for nearly a year already but would have just made it a POW camp, like he did on Java with the Dutch sitting at Bandoeng (700av, mountains). These bases will run out of supply at some point and starve. And with something like 15,000 political points so far I would have tried to buy out as many restricted units from China or Kwangtung that there would be more than enough divisions around at this point to build up quite a nice defensive line. It's 10/42, there are something like 6 divisions on Luzon, one on Java I know of, Imp Guards Div at Victoria Point and surely two around Moulmein. So how many more should there be around? A dozen with the reinforcements and pp to buy out restricted ones? Not talking about nav guard units, bgds and other independent stuff plus support.

All in all I really don't get it, the IJ airforce should be stronger than ever, fully trained with ample of pilots and aircraft in the pools, there should be enough strong ground units around and the IJN still is easily strong enough to reinforce the frontline, yet Cuttlefish is doing nothing at all. He doesn't seem to fortify the Philipines (no bases reported being built up), he still tries to take Clark Field. If he fortifies the Marianas I don't know, the bases are far from being built up, building forts alone all around the map won't help, you also need overlapping airfields to employ your airforce. I just can't believe he would send troops to the Marianas when I am knocking on the SRA's door. Like I've said, I could land a dozen divisions on Java and literally end the game and I just can't imagine that anyone not being able to notice this.

There really is only one reason I don't fully exploit the situation as that I don't want another PBEM ending soon because of my enemy throwing in the towel. But at some point I will just move forward again, even if not as fast as I could, doing this with minimal to no risk at all.

my bombers fly only once in a while but that doesn't matter much as the enemy isn't using his airfields anyway nor has he enough troops there to repair them efficiently... no less than five heavy bombers were lost in this milk run today and I wonder why I just read another thread on the main forum how to take down 4Es... lmao... you don't have to shoot them down, they crash anyway, flown by high experienced crews from level 9 airfields, attacking targets that got no flak nor fighters...

needless to say that our tank units had no problem to take Mandalay... one unit was destroyed, the rest retreated into the clear hex North... the RAF/USAAF has been ordered to take care of the trashed units...


intel about another division:

1st Tank Division is located at Moulmein(55,55).

Sorry to sound a little harsh, but CT: i think your opponent isn't playing at all... It reminds me the game between cr and chez...

You'd better ask him and offer him an honourable exit door from this game

yes, this is somewhat correct. I have asked Cuttlefish about the situation and he replied that he is really discouraged about not being able to even take Clark Field in 42, not so much worried about his ship losses (which seems to usually be the main problem of an IJ player).

the game actually reached December already and the AAR of both October and November will be absolutely the same and as boring as the last months but Cuttlefish pretty much agreed on what he should have done so far but didn't and said he will stiffen his defenses from now on, so I expect him to be back into the game 100%. Otherwise it will be just a waste of time to be honest because all I do every turn is spending time for pilot training and ferrying around troops and supplies and this has been going on for months already (both in the game and real life).

same as on the last pages of the AAR, it's not really worth posting nor reading all those boring combat reports, I decided to have them complete in the AAR though so I will go on posting them nevertheless... just don't expect anything special happening, even an AAR vs the AI would be more entertaining... at the moment doing turns for me is like working on an excel sheet but nothing more, hopefully Cuttlefish will really gear up, otherwise it will be a waste of hundreds of hours of our life (at least mine because on average I still spend an hour on a turn plus a couple of minutes per combat report in the AAR)...
