Dec 21, 1943

So QBall is now back from his holidays and the game resumes.

On Dec 21, a Gato Class sub torpedoes the CL Oboyo at Ponape, avoiding the heavy escorts... grrr.... The Oboyo was part of an imponent operation that saw the combined fleet redeploying the major LCUs from the pacific perimeter to the Mariannas and Davao area.

Anyway, with Boela AF now closed the allies are ready to exploit the corridor they created in the DEI but we're still holding at Saumlaki and at Kaimana, keeping 3 allied divisions fully busy

The enemy's CVs are confirmed now near PM... which means a redeployment towards the pacific. I think he will now advance under LBA umbrella in the DEI, while opening a new front in the pacific. I think its main objective are those atolls between Truk and the Mariannas (just like Bigred did against FaTr in their game).
The KB is, however, almost operative at Bab. Its air groups are now at 80% of their strenght, even if i had to downgrade some DB groups to Vals (will be used for Naval search only i think) cause i'm short of Judys for the moment being.

In Burma he's applying pressure everywhere on my flanks... it's getting hard to hold without new reinforcements coming in...

The allies bombed Kaimana with everything they had and then attacked.... 1-2 and forts still at 1.30....

The allies then attacked again our starved units at Hollandia... another 1-2 and heavy losses on his side....

Our lions are still fighting... and delaying the basterds

The more he advance, the more he gets delayed and many of his best divisions are now depleted and in bad conditions....

The KB is now ready to fight again. 100% ready!

Dec 24-29, 1943

The war goes on and the allies keep on pounding Kaimana and Boela.

In the last 5 days, Kaimana suffered badly with several DD TFs bombarding the dot base, savagely defended by the 56th Division. Forts are again up to 2 and the air bridge is doing wonders in keeping supply levels pretty stable (even if low).

On the other side of NG, Vanimo has finally been invaded by the 41st Division. Hope he destroys my units pretty fast so i can start rebuilding them back and and send them to Luzon.

At the same time the 1st Division arrived at Tau-Elandien, while another division is reaching Menado while we speak. The second line is building up fast while he tries to break at Kaimana....

Few days and the Peggy-T will be available...can't wait!

The enemy's CVs are now out of sight...probably at Sydney.

Many scout TFs moving near Marcus and Wake Island....

Dec 30-31 1943

The year is over. A good year indeed, despite some heavy losses and some defeats. The Empire managed to slow down the allied advance in the Southern Day and, in December, it also managed to inflict a major punishment to the allied finest machine, sinking 3 CVs and a bunch of CVEs.

However not everything is bright.

In Burma we've lost Akyab and Bhamo-Mitikyna-Wazrup area, and now the flanks of our Burmese dominion are now threatened both by Chinese and by the western Allies.
We've lost the whole SWPAC theatre, with the allied advance that stopped and slowed down only at Hollandia...pretty deep into my realm

Anyway, my supply-fuel routes are still safe and the allied subs haven't been much of a factor so far. The allied air power is beginning to become overwhelming but Japan is trying to choose carefully its battles and it seems to be still able to give them some headhaces.

Today there were major air battles over Boela and over Babo. Over Boela we ambushed the usual milky runs of the allied attacks, destroying 60 planes for 3 of my own (The franks are rocking here), while over Babo 36 of my Frances dediced it was a good idea to attack a bunch of PTs... they were escorted by 84 between Tojos and Franks...who got slaughtered by the heavy enemy CAP... 92 planes lost and more than 50 pilots...

But against the Corsairs and Hellcats sweeps over Boela we showed him that, handled by crack pilots, the Japanese machines (N1K1s and 2s and KI-48a) can still be deadly.

What's next so? Well, Brad will surely try to open another front soon...so I must be very carefull from now on

Will you convert all IJAAF 2E groups to training and use of the Peggy (T) or leave some for ground bombing duties still? Hard to make these choices as the new training of TB pilots takes a LONG time, and adding ground bombing to them would be difficult.

Erik, the idea is to leave the ASW Groups as they are, while converting the rest of the Helen Squadrons to Naval-T duties. I don't see any valid point to keep ground bombing squadrons operating. By now ground bombing is not a viable option anymore for Japan. If situation changes (i doubt), i can still count on more than 1000 highly trained bomber pilots in my pools and i can easily convert some groups back to the Helen.
But yes, i want hordes of Peggy-T.

I see, that you mentioned, that you use old ZEROs for sacrificial escort duty.

D4Y4 was kamikaze variant, and the bomb was not non-detachable. I have no idea, why it can be dropped it in-game.



Yes, that's why i'm really looking forward to have the SAM, tough it won't arrive untill early 1945

And yes, i think it's kosher. The game allows it, exactly as it allows the 8 hexes strikes vs. the 7 hexes of the allied CVs, or the Corsairs to take off from CVE Long Island.

The D4Y4 is a plane specifically made carrier capable by the devs.

This is very interesting to me GreyJoy if I decide to play the IJ I will certainly take this under advisement as optimization points ...

GreyJoy,

Will you be training up LowNav for some of your IJAAF airframes in anticipation of the triggering of Kamikazes? What are your pools of Helen, Sally and Lillys? These will make very nice Kamikazes. Also, your pools of Oscar IIa/IIb or other bomb-carrying "Kamikaze-capable" airframes?

I thought Nemo demonstrated that stratospheric Kami's combined with multiple levels was the optimal attack in this game? Is lownav Kami's and going in undetected / less detected do more damage vs. the high flak values in DBB?

Crackaces-it was my understanding that the training of pilots for the Kamikaze mission was through LowNav training. How they approach the target (at what altitude)-I don't think-has bearing on their ultimate kamikaze mission. I don't have much direct experience with this, so am open to those with more firsthand knowledge.

If you think about it, though, it makes sense. Eventually, somehow, some way, those pilots will be attacking naval ships at low altitude. LowNav training / "kamikaze" training seems synonymous. Implementation of swarm attacks (numbers, altitude, +/- escort) is a different variable, IMO.

A very good point about the armor above by inqistor, and I think the A6M5c does this very well from my limited experience with it. The high maneuverability of the early versions though can also mean they elude some attacks. They do much better than I would have imagined.

While the 800kg bomb issue is a hot one, would it be so hard to have made it droppable if they'd wanted to retrieve the plane and pilot? It could carry the bomb and that is the main point as I see it. It was simply not necessary for them at the time as there were no CVs to launch from and experienced DB pilots were probably nonexistent, while kami pilots who could at least point a plane in the approximate direction were still available.

And these really make a nice big BOOM!

I am of the religion that this game is not even close as a simulation so when I think about it . my limited experience so far makes me lean toward attacks with multiple layers that force CAP to react that I am th8inking includes stratospheric Kami attacks but I could see Low-level Naval attacks combined with very high altitude Kami attacks really stressing the typical CAP layer about 18K to protect against DB's and 10K to protect against TB's ... with uber CAP to protect against stray escorts ...

In my reading Nemo .. one massed Kami attack at the right time is the ticket to set the Allies back and make it to '46 ...

Yes, that was my understanding too. Kamikaze pilots, no matter the altitude they fly, will Always use LowNaval skill

I've started to train them since 1942. Now i have more than 2000 higly trained Kamikaze pilots in my pools and have already stockpiled 1200 Oscar IIb and IIIa. The idea is to use ONLY Army pilots for that suicidal duty, while leaving the more rare navy pilots to conventional bombing or torpedoing. In few months i'll be producing a grand total of 250 Oscars monthly. Should be enough, i hope

Jan 3, 1944

So 1944 has begun.

In the last week the allies started a massive naval bombing campaign against Kaimana and Boela. Several TFs bomb these bases every night (South Dakota and Repulse included). We don't care much for the moment. We're very busy creating a new perimeter Beyond the actual front and in defence of Luzon. My new perimeter will start at Menado and will end at Bab. Already 2 divisions got in place there and 2 more are coming from CENTPAC to help.
Not much to report in other theatres. The enemy CVs simply disappeared, along with their CVEs, but i've just spotted what seems to be an APA convoy moving west from Port Hedland...mmmm.....
Moving some of my air and naval reserves to Singapore.

Peggy-T and Judy-4 finally entered into production. am producing 5 Peggy-T Daily and 7 Judys...not bad.

If he now wants to move forward from his present positions in the DEI he needs to enlarge his perimeter. The more he advances northwards the longer are his exposed flanks and he knows that. He should conquer at least Boela and Kaimana, neutralizing Ambon and Biak if he wants to free some air units from the present guarding duties.

On the other side of NG he needs to get rid of my army at Hollandia and Vanimo (which are conquered but the stiff resistance of my units, even without a base, are slowing him down a lot, keeping pinned 2 good divisions).

Western Sumatra remains a very probable place for him to land in the nearby future. What do i need to defend my dominions there? Well, easy to say: a decent naval presence, a good recon system and a strong air-to-naval defence. I'm doing my best to move all my reserves to Singa, trying not to let other places completely unguarded. Not easy.

Yes, they are nasty in 1945. But I am of the opinion that a decent Allied player should be so loaded up with firepower and goodies that there is no sense bitching about this. It makes the game balanced and more fun. After all, we all know that really only a very few Japanese bettys and nells were capable of delivering torpedoes. We AFBs can deal with it.

Erik, the idea is to leave the ASW Groups as they are, while converting the rest of the Helen Squadrons to Naval-T duties. I don't see any valid point to keep ground bombing squadrons operating. By now ground bombing is not a viable option anymore for Japan. If situation changes (i doubt), i can still count on more than 1000 highly trained bomber pilots in my pools and i can easily convert some groups back to the Helen.
But yes, i want hordes of Peggy-T.


GreyJoy,

Will you be training up LowNav for some of your IJAAF airframes in anticipation of the triggering of Kamikazes? What are your pools of Helen, Sally and Lillys? These will make very nice Kamikazes. Also, your pools of Oscar IIa/IIb or other bomb-carrying "Kamikaze-capable" airframes?


I've started to train them since 1942. Now i have more than 2000 higly trained Kamikaze pilots in my pools and have already stockpiled 1200 Oscar IIb and IIIa. The idea is to use ONLY Army pilots for that suicidal duty, while leaving the more rare navy pilots to conventional bombing or torpedoing. In few months i'll be producing a grand total of 250 Oscars monthly. Should be enough, i hope


My experience is that these planes are not very good as kamikazes. Too easy to shoot down. You really need a big bomb. They (oscars) just bounce off of BBs and that seems to be the target of choice if they are around. Same with Helens and Sallys. The bombs are no good for kamikaze attacks. It is the Judy, Jill, Peggy and Francis that seem to do the damage to my ships.

Oh, and Okhas are now working and they hurt when they hit.

Yes, they are nasty in 1945. But I am of the opinion that a decent Allied player should be so loaded up with firepower and goodies that there is no sense bitching about this. It makes the game balanced and more fun. After all, we all know that really only a very few Japanese bettys and nells were capable of delivering torpedoes. We AFBs can deal with it.


Just to go on the record .. I was not complaining .. only citing some observations that those with the religion that this game is a simulation of some sort of reality will be shocked

I have to say I did feel a little bit of disappointment when 25 Betty's at long range destroyed an armored battalion in the open ... Not only can these pilots rip open any TF I send out .. but they are snipers that can plant bombs as equally skillful on moving tanks .. [I am thinking the algorithm favors skill level somehow more than the armament?

In the reality department ... I deal with the fact that 10 IJ seized a city of thousands and commissioned the entire rail network in one day to rail up 45K IJA Its a good game although ...

Since when (game version-wise) are Okhas working, crsutton? Last official version? Last beta patch?

Also, why do you not think that the Oscars are a good Kamikaze platform? I'm not critiquing your observations, just asking your opinion on the why.

They do come complete with 2x 250kg bombs-enough to make a real mess in anything less than a modern BB. I've sunk BBs by heavy doses of small bombs=fire=floatation=sunk. Are your BBs just not getting hit by enough of them at once?

How about a map of New Guinea and the SE DEI?  Haven't seen one for awhile and would like a benchmark for the first of the year (44).  Burma would be welcome too, young Jedi.

If you think about it, though, it makes sense. Eventually, somehow, some way, those pilots will be attacking naval ships at low altitude. LowNav training / "kamikaze" training seems synonymous. Implementation of swarm attacks (numbers, altitude, +/- escort) is a different variable, IMO.


I am of the religion that this game is not even close as a simulation so when I think about it . my limited experience so far makes me lean toward attacks with multiple layers that force CAP to react that I am th8inking includes stratospheric Kami attacks but I could see Low-level Naval attacks combined with very high altitude Kami attacks really stressing the typical CAP layer about 18K to protect against DB's and 10K to protect against TB's ... with uber CAP to protect against stray escorts ...

In my reading Nemo .. one massed Kami attack at the right time is the ticket to set the Allies back and make it to '46 ...

True Mr.Sutton. But if Japan can throw some 2/4000 planes weekly to the allied amphib invasion, i think you can cause enough havoc to slow them down to a point where their advance simply becomes too costly.
About Kamikaze, i think the price/rewards for an Oscar is very good. Sure it would be very hard to sink a BB with Kami-Oscars, but you don't need to. My plan is to mass conventional and Kami Attacks, hoping to get some of my torpedo/800kg-bombs along with Kamikaze to his BB/CVs... that's all i ask. But the Oscars are cheap, easy to train and i will never suffer any IJA pilot shortage...a different story from the IJN pilots

Not sure what he is doing there but it looks like LR CAP is involved. By their performance Id guess they are layered below (?) the sweepers. Or maybe it's just having your Frank 'r' up above the incoming sweeps in the first Spit sweeps. That probably helped a lot. Pretty poor for the Allies with all of those good airframes. Your pilot quality is certainly showing here as well.

Hi Folks,

If the defending units have field fortifications in their current locations then staying put might be the better bet.

I would also suggest at lest to start planing retreat from north Burma. Right now it looks ok but he slowly pushing You back on flanks and one day you can wake up with most of your troop closed in central Burma in big pocket. One unlucky battle in Akyab area and in month he will stand in front of Rangoon gates and You will have most of troops fighting for jungle north of Shwebo. You dont want that
