I found it useless to try naval bombardments on Jungle hexes with anything smaller than BBs. If you add forts to that not even BBs make a big impact.

One thing .. disruption is not reported in the Combat Report. I can say that my opponents BB attacks against fortified jungle hexes did mot produce casulties but did produce disruption. So if the IJ decided to execute attacks either air or ground those disurptied squads would have been disabled/destroyed. Because how the game works it does take a 1-2 punch .. get squads disrupted and then follow up exposing these squads to disablement die rolls .. plus the whole Malaria die roll thing ....

I find disruption to be a critical factor for making an atoll attack or crossing a river. It is much easier to disrupt a squad than to disable but when ground attacking it seems to me that disruption is like temporary disablement in that the squads do not contribute to AV or firepower but have different algorithums for recovery. A nuance for sure but an algorithum that must be understood in my book ...

May 1, 2, 3:
Japanese warships are approaching Port Moresby.
Allied invasion force approaching Esperance. Detection levels go up on multiple TFs, so Nick knows for sure something is up on 5th.

Key: TT = Torpedo; bb = ground bombardment; c = casualties; b = base hits; s = supply hits; r = runway hits; p = port hits; f = fuel hits; AV = Assault Value; DC = Depth Charged; (*) = destroyed aircraft; If odds are underlined, they are the Allies; BG = Bomber Group of 48 planes (4 x 12 bomber squadrons)

Subs:
S-47 sinks a PB on the way from Marhsalls to Solomons area.
S-44 is used as a minesweeper with consequences at Port Moresby.

Allied Ships
SS Grayling

On 6th, my sub is overrun just to SW of this base.

Grenadier sinks an xAK with a TT hit and shell hits off Exmouth. Nick seems to have too many small transports moving around the map without any escorts.
Sailfish gets an xAKL at Exmouth on the surface at night.
Balao short reign of terror off northern Hokkaido ends when she gets hit with a DC. She will limp back to West Coast (WC) for repairs.

CVs:
Mine have left Melbourne headed for operations off Esperance.
On 4th, CVs are spotted at Manus (101,119) with 44 F, 90 B, 25 Aux.
On 5th, CVs and SC TF end up 3 NE of Milne Bay (103,131).
On 6th, the CVs disappear.

India/Burma:
Shwebo - We are back up to two groups of 42 Tojo sweeping the empty skies. They are followed by 36 Oscars with up to over 120 Helens on 4th. The number of Helens decrease on the 5th by half to about 60.

1 West Shwebo - A sweep of 42 Tojo over the troops here begin on the 5th. This is followed by 36 Oscars and 63 Helens to attack the troops.

Lashio - Up to 9 Helens from China now bomb the AF sporadically.

China:
Sian - AF is attacked by up to 14 Sonia daily.

Lanchow - Up to 25 Oscars with around 110 Sally/Helen attack AF along with the troops daily. The Oscars are now assigned strafing missions.

Australia:
Horn Island -
4th - 44 B-25s, 32 B-17s, & 12 B-24s hit the AF without any opposition.
5th - 6 PT Boats from Portland Roads tangle with 4 SCs to the NE of the base without success. Only 42 B-25s attack the AF today.
6th - 43 B-25s visit AF. I lose 6 to flak and op losses, so they are stood down afterwards.

South Pacific, Solomons, & New Guinea:

This combat on the 4th causes the Allies to move some ships around in the NE part of Australia.


Central Pacific:

North Pacific:

Engineering: Kwajalein F3; Coen AF6; Majuro P2; Portland Roads P1 & AF1;

Recon/Intel:


Notes:
Western Australia - Invasion TFs continue to move further west. Invasion is about 4 to 5 days.

NE Australia - When CVs and SC TF were spotted to the NE of Milne Bay on 5th, I was expecting BB Yamato and company to bombarded someplace like Cooktown with the CV staying back to offer LRCAP. I was already moving the damaged warships back to Townsville at least with those that needed yard time headed for Brisbane. DB & TBs were moved up even if not fully trained. Plans will go forth to bring up the third R Class BB with another 2 modern American CLs and 8 DDs from Melbourne. I want 3 SC TF with 2 CLs and 6 to 8 DDs to counter surface threats and the 3 R Class BBs to start bombardment runs on Horn Island.

The multiple invasion TFs with CVs and other TFs are strung out as they head in a NW direction. They will start to head west next turn.

Air Reinforcements for next few days.

The 348th FG with 75 P-47D2s arrive at Eastern USA will be replaced with P-40Es. I'm still playing 'tennis' with where will they go. SoPac and Australia OR to India/Burma?? Two 25 plane squadrons of the 18th FG are at Townsville to get these planes (very elite pilots in these two groups). The extra 25 will be added to the pool.

The 475th FG comes in at Charters Towers (next to Townsville) with 6 P-38Gs. These 3x Fighters Squadrons will get 75 P-40Ks with quality pilots (I have over 950 US Army fighter pilots).

In 12 days, the first of many Essex CVs arrives. She will go to Pearl to join up with CV Victorious who is finishing her upgrade. Both will be available for SoPac operations in June.

Why is he sending another division here?? This is why he had the warships off Milne Bay a few turns ago. I'm going to be MacArthur and avoid as many of these type bases that I can.


Notes:
Esperance will be invaded tomorrow.

I might suggest that drawing the IJ down here in the sticks helps out with your planned Horn Island invasion. The loss of platforms in this corner of the world means that mobile naval platforms are required to resist. I doubt all the bases have the required supply constraints to fill out the aircraft in a timely manner, and flying platforms in takes a couple of turns and hops .... so its the KB, or this corner of the workd becomes a huge IJ POW camp. Very nice ...

This is the downside for the IJ to occupy Perth .. although it is easily isolated ... you are demosntrating what it takes to support a defense so far away from home ....many a good IJ unit will meet their fate here .. and when rebuilt will never be the same ....

Perth & western Australia - A perk I will get once I take this base is Nick was nice enough to expand the Repair Shipyard to a size 41. Big enough for anything. I wanted to come back here to add another theater that he has to defend. Once Kalgoorlie is taken then I can move everything that is at Port Augusta over by rail. I'm strongly considering to change over some of the units at Esperance to prep for Port Hedland and beyond. So far, not too many places he is standing and fighting to the bitter end.

Hory Crap!!! The "Capetown" of Oz! That is a problem I think of the Western Oz campaign is where the damaged ships go. I guess eventually they make it to Capetown but now . you have a viable repair station .. Way to go!!

Brisbane is up to Repair Shipyard 25. That will help too. Sydney is size 30 in DBB.

yes this will help the Eastern operations .. but I have found my Western operations severly hampered having to escort my damaged platform either underneath Oz for the 3000 mile trip to Sydney or the trip to Capetown from Perth ... now with Perth ready to repair big stuff ... it will really help maintain the fleet on the Western shores ..

I didn't hit anything, but prior Intel Reports have shown that the Guards Tank Division had been moved back to Soerabaja. Could she be aboard these transports bound for western Australia??


CVs:
Mine have are off Esperance.

India/Burma:
Shwebo -
10th - Just sweeps by two groups of 42 Tojos.
11th - The two groups of Tojo sweep before 39 Helens hit the AF.
12th - Only 42 Tojo sweep.

1 West Shwebo -
10th - 18 Oscars with 36 Helens attack
11th - 42 Tojo sweep to be followed by a total of 70 Oscars and 60 Helens that go after my two Armoured Brigades.
12th - two groups of 42 Tojo sweep. Then, 36 Oscars with 54 helens follow.

China:
Sian - AF is attacked by up to 14 Sonia daily.

Lanchow - Up to 25 Oscars with around 110 Sally/Helen attack AF along with the troops daily. The Oscars are now assigned strafing missions.

Australia:
Horn Island -
10th - 20 P-38s sweep past the 3 Nicks easily. A second group of 23 P-38s find only a lone Nick in the air. Slightly NE of due north are the TF from Port Moresby headed west. I find 5 Tojo on LRCAP vs 20 P-40s with 30 SBDs. They sink an AMC and get one hit on an APD, but whiff on BB Yamato & Matsu. This was a brave move on Nick's part.
11th - 12 B-26s hit the AF.

Esperance -
10th - Unloading continues from 6 TFs. 126 Fighters, 117 TBFs, 178 SBDs attack his troops prior to the deliberate attack.

11th - I had formed a SC TF to place between my transports at Esperance and his forces over to the west around Albany. They were ordered to be one hex due west of the newly captured Esperance along with PT Boats. Japanese CAs still rule the night.

2 of 12 PT Boats are sunk in the same hex, but his SC TF doesn't go any further towards the actual base itself and the vulnerable transports. Daylight finds some CV based Kates headed for the fleet. 12 poor Kates find no escorts and try to avoid 230 fighters. YIKES!! The second strike is better as 71 Zeros, 55 Kates, & 16 Judys target CV Enterprise. He losses 53 planes vs 225 CAP fighters. Only 3 Kates get a chance to even launch. 27 more Kates approach on another kamikaze mission. Finally, the Allies strike back. Well, not quite!

10 more Kates and then another 17 again come in without escorts. He keeps coming as 42 Zeros with 6 Judy & 5 Kates find a mix on CAP/LRCAP of 95 P-39s, P40s, Corsairs, F4Fs, & F6Fs. I shoot down 12 for losses of only 2. Up until this point in time I'm generally happy with the results, but the final strike of the day changes my mood. 14 Zeros with 10 Kates target the SC TF just one hex west of my CVs and one hex away from Esperance. I have NO leaky CAP to intervene!! 4 TT hits on BB Prince of Wales follows. Damage is 18-68(41)-5(1)-0

12th - I send my transports to east away from Esperance just in case he sends in another SC TF or two. I find my PT Boats 5 hexes away ordered to return to Adelaide. I had moved my CVs to be about 4 hexes south of Albany just in case he hangs around (see screenshot). They sink 2 AMc at Albany for their efforts. They are ordered back for the 13th along with the transports back to Esperance along with the follow up forces prepped for Kalgoorlie.

Notes:
Esperance - I'm firmly ashore with troops and supplies. I am moving my CV/CVEs back to cover the transports that will return and are coming from Adelaide. I will need a few days (3 to 5) to get them there and unload, maybe more. The furthest Transport TF is 4 days away. My SC TF that did so well is refueled and reloaded and headed back.

Lesson - I need to do better in forming multiple SC TF to be available to intervene. I had to form one in the moment from what I had available.

Bad luck with the dice roll on the Australia TF. The Aussies usually do fairly well at night battle in any game I have played.

His air strike force must be decimated. What does the Intel screen say about the final butcher's bill?

I wrote it down, but forgot to include it in my posting. Air Losses were 171 Japan vs 53 Allies. He's lost 400 planes to my slightly less than 100 for the last few days since the invasion. Thankfully, most of mine are naval air fighter pilots and airframes which I have extras in.

Notes:
Naval Support & Shore Party - Having a high number of both (213 & 135) at Esperance is allowing Transport TFs (even more than one) to come in and completely unload in one day without having to dock.

With KB and the rest of his CV/CVL/CVE (don't know exactly who is here) around the Perth/Geraldton area, I order my CV/CVEs back towards the relative safety of Melbourne.

Notes:
Esperance - With KB and other carriers off to west of Perth and less than one days sail from being able to launch on this base along with the multiple fighters encountered today, I pull out all but my one group of P-39s that will be here on night CAP to offer some protection of Prince of Wales. The base has 241 Engineers and 72 Engineer Vehicles so it will be hard for Nick to close it down. I will rely on my 3 AA units plus the AA in BFs to offer resistance. Meanwhile, I have the two P-47 groups resting over at Ceduna. Three P-40Es groups with highly trained pilots just arrived at Adelaide. They will need time (about one week) to repair and get morale up as they are a new unit. I will also need that week to rebuild my three corsairs. I have other air units in the area. Plans are to hope the base's AF can be kept open and allow a surge of fighters at a later date.

Air losses for 18th were 92 for Japan to 35 Allies.

CV Essex arrived at Panama today!!

That is an indicator that supplies are moving ... one thing just to remind you .. I think that stockpile and release thing is needed to move supplies from the far western reaches of India to the esatern parts. I could be wrong and it might move despite my best efforts . But there has to be a plethroa of supplies out in the Eastern parts to propogate like waves on a pond throughout Burma ..

Fleet back at Melbourne.
Esperance continues to expand.

Key: TT = Torpedo; bb = ground bombardment; c = casualties; b = base hits; s = supply hits; r = runway hits; p = port hits; f = fuel hits; AV = Assault Value; DC = Depth Charged; (*) = destroyed aircraft; If odds are underlined, they are the Allies; BG = Bomber Group of 48 planes (4 x 12 bomber squadrons); group = 25 fighter planes if American

Nick still has large number of shipping moving in and out of Perth/Geraldton area. I can attest to the slow death of his merchant fleet by 1000 paper cuts. In my other PBEM game as Japan in late March '44, the Allied sub fleet is sinking a merchant ship almost daily. We all want our subs to hit and sink large warships, but this hurts just as much in the long run, IMO.

Pike is hit by another heavily escort transport TF north of Gerladton.
Spearfish is sunk by 4 SC in a shallow ocean hex on the SW corner of Australia. After being hit by 2 DCs, she is forced to surface and gets into a gun duel. She survives and escapes, but sinks later in the day.

CVs:
Mine are at Melbourne repairing. The air groups from Saratoga are taken off and headed for Port Augusta.
It looks like all of Japan's CVs are at Perth on 19th. Then, some disappear by 22nd. Looks like KB has left.

India/Burma:
Shwebo - 84 Tojos sweep followed by 30 Oscars & 49 Helens.
1 West Shwebo - 42 Tojo sweep with 36 Oscars and 53 Helens follow.
Colombo - 13 Emily and 27 Nells attack the port at night on 19th. Of course they don't hit anything. My only dedicated NF group is at Pearl. She is headed for Australia, now!

China:
Sian - AF is attacked by up to 14 Sonia daily.

Lanchow - Up to 25 Oscars with around 110 Sally/Helen attack AF along with the troops daily. The Oscars are now assigned strafing missions.

Australia:
Horn Island -
19th - A single DD sinks my last remaining Aussie minesweeper. 22 B-17s hit the AF.
20th - 25 P-40s sweep and then 21 B-17s hit AF.
21st - same as 20th

Esperance -
19th - Nighttime action one hex to west in 100% moonlight. 6 DDs vs my 8 PT Boats have NO hits scored by either side. Strange. Only 26 George sweep during day.
20th - Nick increases the tempo. the 26 George sweep first to be followed by 35 Oscars with 21 Helens. Another three planes are destroyed on the ground.
21st - I hear the sound of something hitting a mine. I think one of his subs finds the minefield (308 mines present). It turns out to be 5 midgets subs sinking there. No air attacks.

Kalgoorlie -
My lead armor units are half way to this base after another successful shock attack on his retreating troops on 20th. I am able to do these attacks every third day. Nick has failed to attack these units with his LBA. IMO, this is a big mistake. While taking Esperance was important, the Allied capture of this base is critical to the reconquest of western Australia. The trains are at Port Augusta ready to RR huge number of troops (most of them still restricted to Australia) to the west.

South Pacific, Solomons, & New Guinea:

Lesson is to bring more. After repairs, I'll bring 4 CLs and 8 Fletcher DDs to the party.

Merauke - 22 P-38s sweep empty skies on 21st.
Off Terapo - 22 B-25s on LowN attack miss the escaping CAs from Merauke on21st.

Central Pacific:

North Pacific:

Engineering: Esperance F2 & AF6; Amchitka AF7; Portland Roads AF5; Christchurch AF8;

Recon/Intel:

Notes:
Prince of Wales - I had sent her to Esperance expecting Nick to hit the port to finish her off. Now, Yamaot and at least two other BB are two days away from hitting the base. It will take three days to get her ready to escape, but I may not have the time. I think I had written her off already and not made the effort to save her. She can still make 15 knots and could have escaped. Insert me kicking myself here!!

Melbourne - I now have over 400 ships in port. All but Saratoga (less than a month pier side before she can head to Pearl) will be repaired within 10 days (damaged CVE is headed for larger repair shipyard at Sydney). I'm waiting for the movement of troops that remained prepped for SoPac bases to arrive. I have two tank rgt at Cooktown that need to be moved to Cairns and then RR down here. Sometime in the later half of June '43 will the invasion of the greater Luganville area take place.

China:
Sian - AF is attacked by up to 14 Sonia daily.

Lanchow - Up to 25 Oscars with around 110 Sally/Helen attack AF along with the troops daily. The Oscars are now assigned strafing missions. Daily ground bb attacks.

Australia:
Horn Island -
22nd - 5 Kitt escort in 48 B-24s & 12 B-17s to keep the AF closed.
23rd - 24 P-38s sweep. 2 of 3 APDs are sunk with the third heavily damaged by 24 Vengeance DBs based at Portland Roads. Nick laments his shipping losses for little gain. The usual 11 B-17s & 47 B-24s use the AF as target practice.
24th _ I had sent 2 AM & 2 SC to get rid of his subs here. He gets 7 of 9 Judys past only 2 Kitt on LRCAP. An AM is sunk.

Esperance -
22nd - 36 Oscar with 88 Helen attack the defenseless AF. I lose another 3 planes. 53 Nells attack the port. Somehow none of the 800kg AP bombs hit PoW. Wow!! Then, the 26 George sweep (better late than never).
23rd - Another 6 DDs vs 6 PT Boats when nobody can hit anything. 2 more midget subs hit and are sunk by mines.
24th -

If I can go on record Imphal was yellow I believe now doing OK .. .. and Katha Mytikina, Lashio are both supplied .. so supplies are moving ..but you want supplies to specfically flow to Swebo .. which will happen .... but the game algorithum is completely befuddling .. I did find building up excess supply at forward bases and then releasing them to be an effective means for forcing supply forward. At least it seemed that way but once this happens once .. the stuff flows like water ..

The loss of PoW hurts. She is my 5th BB sunk. Nicks focus has been to use his subs in wolfpacks when he knows an invasion is about to happen or is underway. He has not gone after merchants off the West coast since the war started.

Kalgoorlie - the encirclement is underway. Three divisions are marching towards this base.

I wrote it down, but forgot to include it in my posting. Air Losses were 171 Japan vs 53 Allies. He's lost 400 planes to my slightly less than 100 for the last few days since the invasion. Thankfully, most of mine are naval air fighter pilots and airframes which I have extras in.



Are you using one of the later betas or the official patch? CAP seems quite effective

We are using the next to latest Beta (1123g). I mentioned to him about having some of his bomber groups with aggressive leaders and that is what he wants. So that increased the number of planes lost.

May 28, 29, 30, 31:
Armor clash outside of Kalgoorlie.
Sweeps with multiple air groups from the same base CAN happen.

Key: TT = Torpedo; bb = ground bombardment; c = casualties; b = base hits; s = supply hits; r = runway hits; p = port hits; f = fuel hits; AV = Assault Value; DC = Depth Charged; (*) = destroyed aircraft; If odds are underlined, they are the Allies; BG = Bomber Group of 48 planes (4 x 12 bomber squadrons); group = 25 fighter planes if American

Subs: Paper cuts, just more paper cuts.
Grampus is to west of Albany and get 3 TT hits on DD Yuguri.
Haddo is in transit to south of Japan and get an xAK with 2 TT hits.
KXIV is near Moulmein and gets an PB with 2 TT hits.
S-40 is sunk at Terapo trying to get to his CAs there.
KXVI off Victoria Point sinks PB.
KXV is hit once off Perth.
I-10 is hit once by DC to west of Adelaide.
Herring sinks PB off Ponape.

CVs:
Mine are mostly at Melbourne repairing.
Japan's have some moving back from Perth to Geraldton.

India/Burma:
Shwebo area - Up to 84 Tojos sweep or escort with 66 Oscars followed by over 110 Helens hit the AF and troops one hex to west daily.

China:
Sian - AF is attacked by up to 14 Sonia daily. 14 fighters ambush them on 31st and get 3.

Lanchow - Up to 25 Oscars with around 130 Sally/Helen attack AF along with the troops daily. The Oscars are now assigned strafing missions. Almost daily ground bb attacks.

Australia:
Kalgoorlie -
28th - Two groups of P-47s sweep the base vs 54 Tojos. I lose 4 to his 8.
29th - The reduced numbers from two P-47 groups lose 2 to 6 when facing 27 Tojo. As usual, the first group breaks about even, and the second groups doesn't lose any. What looks like his tank division ends the turn with my 4 tank rgt/bde 1 hex to SW. What Nick doesn't know is 1st Marine Division has moved 44 of 46 miles towards this hex.
30th - My tanks to the SW are attacked by 64 Helens & 53 Nells with 21 Oscars & 36 Zero as escort. I lose 7 vehicles (tanks). Nick goes with a shock attack....

My lone tank rgt 2 hexes to west on road is subject to attack by 60 Helens & 44 Nells. Half of unit is disabled and may have trouble retreating to a safer position. Afterwards, my heavies from Ceduna hit the AF that has only 4 Tojo left on CAP. 48 B-24s & 36 PB4Y-1s hit the AF.

Horn Island -
28th - 22 P-38s sweep the empty skies.
31st - Nick has moved back in his fighters. Before sending in the bombers, I want to sweep for a few days. The 'impossible' happens again...

Three air groups sweep together. This is the second time I've had it happen in less than two weeks. I'm going to expect this to happen now.


South Pacific, Solomons, & New Guinea:
Merauke - 4 Beaufort VIIIs get 3 TT hits on a troop carrying xAK to the west of base on 28th. 21 B-24s get by the 42 Zeros and get 3 bomb hits on an AV carrying troops in the port.

Terapo - I see his CAs here again. So on the 28th, I send in 16 Hellcats with 13 SBD. I find 37 Tojo on CAP and I lose 8 to his 1. Of course the CAs are not hit. 10 B-25D1s come in next at 1000' with 25 P-38s as escort. I do better as I lose 4 to his 3. Two xAKs are hit with 4 bombs each. 3 of 15 SBDs face a reduced CAP and get two bomb hits on an xAK.

Central Pacific:

North Pacific:

Engineering: Cairns F3; Ceduna AF9; Normanton AF6; Howrah F2; Kwajalein F4; Adak F5; Buldir P3

Recon/Intel:
Kalgoorlie has 17 LCUs - 38740/312/234 - 12 F, 5 Aux (for 26th).
25 LCUs - 79,020/732/849 - (for 28th)

Notes:
Kalgoorlie - I had to drive 6 hours Friday after seeing new recon on the base (28th) with the significant increases which gave me time to think. Plans were put in motion when I got back home to send the two divisions prepping and resting at Sydney plus any non-restrictive troops prepped for western Australia to head for transports at Melbourne. Preps were not changed, but I need to add more combat power here.

Looking forward:
My carrier fleet: 6 American CVs (Essex just came on map last turn from Panama, Enterprise, Yorktown, Lexington, Hornet, Wasp), CV Victorious, CVL Hermes, 10 CVEs. CV Saratoga is pier side at Melbourne for another month (needs to go back to Pearl for full repairs afterwards) & 1 CVE is at Sydney for just over month for repairs. In the next 60 days, I get more 2 Essex Class CVs, 3 Independence CVLs, and 2 CVEs.

Large warships: 5 fast BBs (spd 28), 10 old BBs, 5 old BBs in shipyards; 23 CAs.

Large warships ships sunk to date: CVE, 5 BBs (2 fast, 3 slow), 3 CAs, & 0 CLs.

Troops: 37 ID is at San Fran awaiting the "C" to get her 57mm AT guns. When I upgraded the infantry squads by dividing the division, the "A" upgraded her AT guns, she will recombine and is already 100% prepped for Koumac. 4th Marine Div in 12 days & 1 (Spec) Cav Div in 23 days. Then, 33 Inf Div in 36 days. Now, what to prep these three divisions for??

With your excellent position in CENTPAC I would try and exploit that. And why bother with Caledonia at all? If he still has a lot troops there just leave them be. If not use a RGT or something and not waste a whole division?

With 4 divisions available you could outflank the whole Caledonia/Salomons and land either further up the chain or simply bypass the whole lot? Or prep them for a quick jump into the DEI once Northen OZ is secured.

EDIT: The 1st Cavalry has really turned into a favorite unit of mine.
