In China we destroyed 300 more squads today. But it's not enough...not fast enough. Tomorrow we'll attack against 3 enemy corps, hoping to force them to surrender so that we can start to move out our Tanks.
3 regiments are, anyway, on their way for Shangaii, where they will be loaded and sent to Benkoleng, Padang and Marcus Is.
The 90th Rgt (an elite unit from Manchuria) is prepping for Ponape. Will have to wait to get some more PPs....really short on them lately.
Brad has built Truskott, the dot base we mentioned few days ago in northern oz. Now he has lots of big bases right in front of Timor. I have barely 350 fighters for the defence of Timor...which is not enough as you may understand...but i just don't have enough formations to cover the whole perimeter
Jaluit an Miri, in CENTPAC, recently got a SNLF unit each, and Roi Namur too got reinforced.
Wake is getting some more suppies in these days. With 20,000 supplies and 163 crack AVs and 5 forts, the base is safe enough imho.
Now i'm extracting some valuable constr units from PM and sending them to Kusiae and Ponape. Wanna be ready, when The Marshalls will fall, with a good defensive arch around Truk (Rabaul/Biuganville - Kusiae/Ponape - Wake/Marcus).
Despite his heavy reconning lately, i'm not worried about the Kuriles. I have based my defences on the same assumptions that led my decision to invade there against Rader. I'm only defending Paramushiro, Onnekotan, Shimushiri, Etorofu and Bihoro, thus leaving some empty bases in the middle. Paramushiro now has 360 AVs, Onnekotan 400 AVs, Shimishiri 500 AVs and Bihoro 400 AVs, with forts everywhere, Tanks, AA units and base forces. The air defence is provided by an Air HQ at Shimushiri where all my training groups are based (some 54 fighters and 200 bombers). Etorofu is my main port in the area, with an AKE, an AS, an AD and an AG. A flottilla of old DDs, along with an upgraded cruiser, remains patrolling this sector.
Places were i really need to reinforce my defences are Sumatra (FIRST), the islands between Timor and Java (SECOND), Java (Third) and Thailand (FOURTH).
