This is going to cause me a world of pain, if I don't take down Singers & Rangoon fairly quickly. Recon suggests there are 11,000+ troops in Port Blair


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ground combat at 86,46 (near Nanyang)

Japanese Shock attack

Attacking force 952 troops, 0 guns, 144 vehicles, Assault Value = 78

Defeated Allied Units Retreating!

Assaulting units:

Defending units:

Tea & Medals for the 12th again!! Chinese units have retreated into Nanyang though

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ground combat at Wenchow (89,58)

Japanese Bombardment attack

Wenchow will soon be completely cut off, and then the assault can begin.
I just hate 'killing' Chinese units this early in the game as they just comeback like The Walking Dead 30 days after destruction, sometimes better equipped than they started.
I'm glad to see my opponent is playing the long game in China and is already formulating a coherent strategy to deal with the IJA. This is SO interesting!!

4th Div /2

Good!! We are ashore both at Rabaul and Gasmata!!
Gasmata will be taken tomorrow as there is no opposition, and I am expecting Rabaul to be taken in 2-3 days. I always take Gasmata first, as it makes the defenders of Rabaul surrender rather than retreat because there is not a base near enough.

SS RO-61 low on gun ammo, Kasai N. breaks off surface engagement and submerges

RO-61 nearly made it two in one turn.
On a more serious note, my opponent is obviously running reinforcements and supplies to Port Moresby.

Japanese Ships
SS I-18

Allied Ships
TK Pan Europa, Torpedo hits 1, heavy fires, heavy damage



TK Pan Europa is sighted by SS I-18
SS I-18 launches 2 torpedoes

So she survived the daylight hours yesterday, and tried to limp back to Australia.
Goes to show you how wrong you can be in 'assessing' Combat Reports.
I'm definitely notching this one up on I-18's belt now though, as she's had 3 torps in her, she must have gone down

Here is the proposed method for breaking the Chinese position in China.
Any comments/suggestions and/or critiques of the outline will be gratefully received!!

First up is 1st & 12th Armies Operational Plan for 1942.

Code Name: Winter Storm

1st & 12th Armies

1. Chengchow

This objective should few problems as the river line to the south west has been breached.
I am expecting the battle to go in one of two ways as DH seems to be picking ( very sensibly ) important cities and x3 terrain to put up his lines of defence;

1. A large force from the SW will enter the city and then eject the troops pushing them up to the second objective Loyang, which will then be assaulted from Chengchow .

Downside:-This approach will require heavy fighting, costly assaults, & increased supply usage.
Upside:-Could be over relatively quickly.

2. Forces will infiltrate from the South ( already secured ), and from the North ( not yet realised ), cutting off Chengchow and Loyang from their supply and then siegeing them as they slowly disintegrate.

Downside:- Will take longer to achieve, and the destroyed troops will appear again in 30days at 1/4 strength in Chungking.
Upside:- Will significantly reduce losses, and reduce supply consumption.

Both approaches require complete cooperation with the air force, in reducing the enemy's position.

Nanyang

This objective is prone to being cut off and should not cause significant problems to the advance.

Yenan

A tricky objective that unfortunately has to be taken, as it sits on the flank of the advance in a secure location. It is also one of the home bases of the Communist elements of Chinese resistance.
Always a problem if the Chinese decide to really bolster its defence, but it has to razed at all costs.

Sian

1st & 12th Armies ultimate objective for 1942. It is significant as it secures not only 11th and 13th Armies flank, but it also has strategic resources, ie oil. Not huge amounts but enough to make it a priority objective for 1942.


Ningsia and Ankang are incidental objectives and should not be problem for 1st & 12th Armies seasoned veterans.

11th & 13th Armies

Code Name:- Typhoon.

1. Wenchow

The decision has already been taken by General S. Hata ( Commander China Expeditionary Army, based in Hwainan ), that Wenchow is to be surrounded, cut off and reduced to rubble by artillery bombardment and aerial assault. This Operation is underway as we speak.

2. Kanhsien & Kukong

These are 13th Armies responsibility, to take these cities and flank Changsha/Henyang from the South.

3. Chusien

Once Wenchow is taken, 11th Army will chew up this objective. No problems are foreseen at this time.

4. Changsha, Siangtan, Shaoyang & Henyang

11th & 13th Armies will converge together on these four objectives. Changsha is to the East of the river, and will fall by full frontal assault.
Depending how DH plays it out, getting over the river could be costly.
If he throws the kitchen sink at Changsha, then the river crossing should not be too much of a problem, but if he puts up a token resistance in Changsha and defends in depth along the river line and forest hexes it could be costly, but it is still achievable.

5.Chihkiang & Changteh

After the envisioned battles in and around Changhsa, these two will be a walk in the park by comparison.



11th & 13th Armies will be heavily reinforced from units paid for in PP's from Manchuria, as these two Armies have some difficult objectives to attain.

Nevertheless Imperial Headquarters feel that the objectives can be achieved in the allotted time frame.

23rd Army


Code Name:- Avalanche

23rd Army will be getting some reinforcements but not as much as the other two Army Groups. 23rd Army has slim resources but much is asked of this small but important Army Group.

Wuchow, Hong Kong and Paotung are already in the grip of the Japanese, but much more is asked.

Kweilin, Liuchow, Nanning and Tuyun must all be taken.

Kunming, Tsuyung and Paoshan are in 23rd Army's remit as well but these will taken with the support of 15th Army in Burma.
