Could you enlighten me a little as to who/what the context of this post was about? You would be silly to not use whatever defensive assets at your disposal to protect your TF's... Besides that statement would be completely unhistorical for the USN doctrine of WWII...

Fact checks - Larry has invested 90% of Burma in first 90 days of war - CHECK.

CAP over TF's or Warships covering transports - yeah within reason, but DD's protecting TK' are not uncommon due to tankers relative superior speed to PB/SC's I agree capital warships do not usually cover convoy TF's and haven't seen you do that this game.

I do not use CAP or LRCAP on convoy TF's, BUT will I use the convoy as bait and have a CVTF trail it by 3 hexes so it does get some bleedover CAP that way. CHECK.

So I really don't see what your agreeing that your wrong with?

Um......somebody, I don't remember who just now, was complaining about the number of opponents he's had who quit early and / or
didn't go the distance with their games with him and how it was getting hard to find quality opponents who will stick with it even though
they loose their CV's etc. Come to think of it I think it was This Thread:
http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3187862

Anyway I posted something about the two games I have going and contributed my $0.02 to the conversation.

I don't remember ever having any capital ships in any of my invading TF's. Although the great majority of my invasions have been onto
empty bases so far. Well, even when I invaded Port Moresby I didn't include any capital ships and should have. Looking back on it now
I'm thinking I could have prevented the damage to the AK's that occured if only I had included some big guns.

Larry,
I read your post above then went to the thread... I can only repeat my solution to your keeping the games seperate in your head... YOU need to get a three part notebook and dedicate one section to each game... It is the ONLY way I'm keeping any organization between the games.

I'm wary of putting capital ships in invasion TF's. I look at it the same as fighters flying escort duty, itakes away thier strength and plays to the defender. It still is something that has to be done under the right conditions though...

Put a bombardment TF trailing an invasion TF (by zero hexes) and there are many more hits on target by bombardment than hodge-podge as part of the invasion...
You are actually just drawing fire to your big guns, which may not be a bad idea if your desperate to avoid damage to your AP's, but dock time for the BB/CA can be a lengthy payback.

as you said "just my $.02"

Friends
Jim

Okie dokie.......it's Monday 8Oct2012 @ 02:18 and I've just gotten done w/ Rob's moves and now I'm jumping on Jim's moves. This is
the latest combat results:

The damage done to my sub in this attack was serious enough to give it 11 sys and 11 flt and I'm sending it back to the docks to get
repaired. That will effectively leave Johnston island "open" of Jap influence and I won't know what's there until one of my other subs
arrives. Jim could ship in a whole division and I won't know it. D'oh.

I got lucky and caught a couple of Allied ships near Canton. Next stop: Palmyra to see what's happening there.

The only subs left at Kwajalen are damaged and probably going to have to go to Yokahama for further repairs in a repair yard
because they have major damage that can't be fixed at location code named Circle K.

I guess Jim thought he'd get his AVG group to sweep Canton and they knocked down one of my Oscars. I may have to send a
second Oscar group to Canton just to get back to a level playing field.

Operation BEAT DOWN continues........Jim's P-40's are getting fewer and fewer and my Betty's got through the CAP okie dokie and
got some hits on the Allied ground forces there. Operation BEAT DOWN is going to require a lot more of this type of raid though.

I got some bombers damaged for no good reason I guess. Very little damage to show for the effort. And Loemadjang probably didn't
need the attention at all. Maybe I should go for the airfield @ Malang instead.

The Allied 22nd Indian Bde is still getting some attention from my Sally's. It should be low hanging fruit by now I'm guessing. Maybe a
Deliberate Attack might be in order on the ground.

Evidently, Clark Field has an AA unit present. But only 1 loss out of 25 Lilly's is acceptable ( 4%) and I'm planning on these raids to
continue and see what happens.

And then there was another air strike on Manila. I'm thinking this kind of raid might have to continue for a long while yet.

There was an Allied air strike on the shipping at Palembang and the 3 Dutch planes didn't hit anything but I still moved a full
squadron of Zero's to Palley so that they don't hit anything in the future. I should have done that several days ago but.....

There was a low-grade furball at location code named Banjo and nobody got hurt so it was good practice for the real thing later.

My Betty's are still trying to make a difference at Port Moresby. I can't tell if these raids are doing anything. I'm hoping we're scoring
at least some disruption among the Allied units there.

And then there was the obligatory B-17 raid on Port Moresby. I've learned to count on one B-17 raid per day at least.

I wonder if I've discovered a bug in the Reluctant Admiral scenario 70? There's a map label saying Kushu and then there's the
cursor popup that says something different and I'm wondering if it's a database error or something. Who is the arthur of this scenario
anyway......maybe we should give him(them) a head's up about this. Or maybe Jim and I are playing with an old version and it's
already been fixed. Enquiring minds want to know. Anybody else have RA 4.2 scenario 70? Does your map say the same thing?

EDIT: I've looked at the map again and I think maybe that label next to the city is in larger type and therefore stands for the, like,
province and the map popup is correct with the city name. And there is no bug at all. Well, the label IS close to the city. Too much
Black Label for so early in the am. Although, I don't feel too bad.......mankind has been numbing it's pain with something like Black
Label for at least since there were two people. The muslums invented alcohol via the distillation process in something like 700 AD. So
there's been a market for altered states of consciousness for a long time. For a reason. Pain hurts. I think maybe everybody can
understand that because, I'm guessing, most people have been hurt in one way or another, physically or mentally, or maybe they are
hurting now. Just a thought.

I believe I've found an AA unit in Japan that doesn't seem to have any of it's equipment.....the guns and vehicles etc. I wonder if I've
misjudged something somehow and left myself without any armament and vehicles at all in the pool.

I counted 12 Allied subs in this one image. Jim seems to be serious about his sub warfare. That must be like 1/3 of his fleet, maybe
more. I hadn't really thought to stop and consider where I would put the Allied subs if I were Jim. I'm guessing (1) around the home
islands, (2) around Palembang, (3) near important ports: Saigon, Hong Kong, Balikpapan, Miri etc. At least I'm thinking that's where I
would put them......at least to start.

I meant to post this earlier and forgot......This is the industry button panel and it shows that Armaments in the Pool is looking pretty
good I think at 30K+. But there's only 4 vehicles in the pool. I've probably left some unit that didn't need any replacements yet with it
"receives replacements" button turned on still. D'oh. So I'm thinking that I need to bump up production of vehicles a bit. Maybe a lot,
but I want to bump it up slowly and watch what happens and not overshoot in production because that stuff is expensive in HI.

Here's me bumping up Yokahoma from 35 to 50....making total production 215 instead of just 200. That's not a huge leap and maybe
won't make a dent in the numbers at the pool but I don't want to wreck my economy ( run out of HI too soon ).

I found a division in Japan that I'm not using yet. But I can't use it yet because it's in a restricted command and I can't change it
because of a lack of PP's.
