Not a typo for 4B

this is a human test

long delayed in starting

with more RHS features than previous ones.

It is the first time I have seen the Thai "token opposition force"
used aggressively

and it may be a good idea. It caused casualties, supply
consumption, fatigue and disruption. Not all bad for units you
only have for one day!

In this game, I am testing and demonstrating the various special capabilities built into RHS. Forget things like "light bombers aren't effective in AE" - or that "light transports are junk."

In Luzon, I have used the indirect approach. Knocking on the front door (Manila Bay) is a very bad idea! I elected to make the main landings in the SE arm of the island, at all four ports at the same time - and all four - being wholly undefended - will fall on the second day. We will build up airfields here, and use this position to threaten Manila from the South - as well as to reach SW and South into the Visayas. But in order to spread the enemy defenses, we also landed in the North. To be unpredictable, and more difficult for PT boats to reach, we landed in the far North. Airborne assault was used to capture a port on the first day - and a small air support unit landed by fast transports at the same time - so we were able to send in fighters to cover the main landing force on the second day. We will capture a larger airfield by the same means next - and move the fighter cover to it only one day later in time. This drive down the backside of the island will threaten the mountain positions in rear, and force some defense to prevent spilling out onto the main plain of North central Luzon with its air base complex. A secondary drive down the West coast will further spread the opposition. The initial objectives are to secure San Fernando - a very find port with an airfield - and the two hexes to the east - all good airfields. The objective is to secure Manila, and the two hexes NE and NW of it - without regard to whatever may retreat into Bataan. Manila is a manufacturing center - and the island can substantially supply itself if all its resources and industry is made functional.

Related to the attack on Luzon is an attack still en route to Mindinao. This is the only location with a base big enough to operate B-17s other than Clark, and there are B-17s on it. Better to have it operating Japanese bombers than hitting Japanese ships left in Allied hands. Like Luzon, this island is too big to defend well, and so multiple landings can insure its fall rapidly. Once again, there are mountains - so we take the coast first and reduce them afterwards.

In SE Asia things are very messy in RHS. Mixed Axis and Allied positions - compounded here by the capture of some bases by Thai troops during their brief period of resistance (a clever move never before tried). Even in Indochina there are Allied positions - and two Allied units: The Provisional Government of North Tonkin and a French Foreign Legion regiment which, historically, fought its way all the way to China, eventually. These units complicate unification of Indochina, but most of it mostly requires moving to various locations and capturing them. Only after that will the economy network up and work as it should do. It will take some days for Thailand to negotiate an armistice, more for its units to appear as Axis, and in many cases, still more before they are really useful (due to disabled squads of key types, like support and air support). For that reason, the offensive into Burma will substantially wait for January, 1942.

But Malaya is different - the Pacific War really begins here (if we disregard China).
Once again, I used the indirect approach. Landing at Kota Bahru cost Japan a major transport (it is still there, a rusting hulk). And it is a pretty lousy port anyway. Its value is its airfield. Since movement down the center of the penninsula isn't as fast as down the West coast - we don't need to jump off from Kota very soon or with the main force. Singora, on the other hand, is at the top - a good airfield and a good place for units to land that want to move down the West side of Malaya. Those units that need to go to Kota and the Central rail line may use Petani. We flew in aircraft to Singora and Petani yesterday - and covered the landings on the first day effectively - turning away three bomber raids. At the same time, several air strikes came in on the four Allied bases in North Malaya - unescorted because Zeros were needed to cover possible strikes on Force Z - and the 27 Oscars in the penninsula covered the landing forces and Singora and Petani. This cost 5 Ki-21s in the one case that was defended effectively - with almost three times as many damaged. But taking down these airfields was vital to protecting the landing forces en route. Regretfully Force Z was not spotted - so it wasn't engaged. But it is out there somewhere. On day two even more recon looks for it - and many bombers are assigned to hit it if detected. At the same time, the JAAF bombers are recovering from the fatigue of the first day's air strikes. Light bombers are assigned to air ASW - a Dutch sub detected and attacked at Singora - and would have scored but for a defective torpedo. We will throw in the entire corps (army) intended for Malaya to back up the force here - to insure the rapid fall of Malaya - and then its ports will be used to jump of for Burma and Sumatra.

In China I expect real trouble. The Allied player knows this is the place for a LOC war, and he will use the special capabilities of guerillas (to operate without LOC) to cut our supply lines. Here we are initially fighting to consolidate positions and defend LOC. The operational goal is, if possible, acquire the rail lines from Canton and Indochina to Shanghai - and to Tientsin. This is possible in RHS as the few places deliberately broken in stock have been put back in the grid - so the historical Japanese unification of the rail system becomes possible.

I do not expect trouble with Russia - until 1945. But it isn't a good idea to strip Kwangtung army of its air forces - so I won't. No point putting too much temptation in his way. We will build fortifications and send specialist units outside. In particular, and unique to RHS, the artillery HQ with its specialist commander - and some heavy guns that may be needed to reduce bastions like Bataan.

The great strategic asset of Imperial Japan is its large army. This was not used in the Pacific early in the war (its only element was the South Seas Regiment). But we can send more troops so more offensives can be done in the expansion period. [Japan sent the troops later - to defend what was taken. Here we show how much more might have been taken?] In a similar way, a really major IJN asset was its battleships. These were not committed early - except for the Kongos. I regard battleships as "very heavy cruisers" - and will use them as such - trying to aid in the expansion by using them - accepting the risk some may be lost to torpedo or bombs. They become of marginal value later in the war anyway - might as well use them while they are still trump cards.

The first opposed airlanding operation of the war resulted in a sort of
victory for the Filipiono defenders. Japanese airborne troops are very
lightly armed. There are few transports with a lot of range to start,
so often only a small fraction arrive. In this case, it appears no
supplies arrived - AV= 0. The airborne is useful vs undefended points,
but not very impressive vs defended ones.

The second attack on PH sank more BB and other ships than the first one.
Which is why I made it.

This turn demonstrates generally the value of fighter planes - even poor ones - and that the Ki-27 is not a good match for a P-40 (which sounds right)! It also shows the value of submarines - a gigantic AP hit yesterday sank today (Rio de Janario Maru) - the most effective Allied naval weapon in spite of bad torpedoes. Less visible is how I evade submarines - disrupting landing ops. And finally small vessels - even schooners - can mess up landing operations - especially at night - reported as "enemy task forces" - they cause TFs to evade and even return to their bases.

I am severely disorganized in Luzon and Malaya - and the B-17 base on Mindinao didn't fall to the armor-artillery-infantry assault - because a regiment of Filipinos moved in to protect it. The disorganization is caused by the way things load at start - and by enemy submarines - evading which caused things not to land where needed. There is some mitigation in the ability to use air transport - moving critical things (air support assets for example) where needed.
I was surprised Hong Kong fell. Used to be a hard nut to crack. The critical things that turned that around are (a) send in the army (corps) HQ to support the assault and (b) send in a second full division - along with do recon before so the ground support air strikes are effective. Test 4B wasn't conclusive since Big Red evacuated the defenders - but here we have a full defense - and they didn't quite hold - although the odds were so low (2:1) they might well have done - particularly with no retreat possible.

KB is having trouble finding targets - the Allies seem to want to stay out of its way - go figure!

Scot really understands submarine warfare: submarines belong DEEP in the enemy rear. If he cannot move supplies, resources and units, he is in trouble. If he must pay a high price to do so, he is also in trouble. And Japan has no effective ASW defense - which is not to say no defense at all. Its best option is to divert planes to ASW: fine - they are not doing other things you will like yes, and they are eating supplies anyway.

He also understands the AVG belongs in China. It is the only effective air force there for a while - and it is able to achieve tactical surprise by moving around - see below.
