What do you think he will do with his 10 divisions when they wipe out this resistance?
Continue to try to conquer all of Oz? You need to buy time to get your defences in shape so delay him.
Withdraw to fight in NG or the Solomons? Again, delay him so you can advance first.
Withdraw and send them to fight in Burma, China or garrison DEI? This would probably be advantageous to you and you want him to get on with it, so do the "banzai charge".
I assume your equipment/device pools are pretty good and you have some PP to buy back key units?

Attacking will just free up his forces more quickly. You need the doomed units to buy time, and you need to do something useful with that time. Rebuilding units is way too slow compared to him redeploying units to new areas. Keep his units tied down. Is an offensive into his far flank possible? Meaning maybe the Marshalls/Gilberts? Any place that you can take advantage of those 10 divisions not being there.

Notes:
Operations Dept - has been very busy over the last few days prepping LCUs for bases in Solomons/New Guinea area (Rennell, Russell, Thousand Ship Bay, Munda, Vella Lavella, Rossell, etc.) and beyond. Some have already been prepping, but others have been started now. I also did the Burma area that included other areas besides Prome.

CV Bunker Hill arrives at Panama. Another CVL arrives in 10 days and then they will leave.

QUESTION - Has anybody watch the Combat Replay and afterwards look at your "Air Losses" and see planes destroyed that you did not see engage anybody?? I had 8 P-40s lost in A2A that were on LRCAP over Horn, but I didn't see any A2A. WHY?!?

I´ve had that happen a few times. Not entirely sure but I think if both are LRCAPing the same target that happens. For some reason LRCAP vs LRCAP doesn´t show up in the CR or replay. If one of you had swept as well as LRCAP combat had been shown. Quite strange in fact.

Could the planes have been involved in bleeding CAP and actually fought at another location?
Per Alfred and LoBaron, there is no LRCAP or CAP mission, the mission assigned is Escort or Sweep. From there a % portion are detailed to provide CAP or LRCAP. Meanwhile some of the unit could leave on the primary mission assignment of Escort or Sweep [commander's discretion if no target chosen] and be lost in A2A during that mission.


I would look for the unit name in the details of any of the A2A combat reports for the area.

Burma:
5 hexes SSE of Lashio has a Chinese Corp in it - Up to 21 Sally attack.

Prome -
21st - My LBA in Burma/India is focused here. 3 Oscars and 29 Tojo are on LRCAP/CAP as my Hurricanes from Ramree are on LRCAP and various fighter groups sweep. 16 Corsairs down 8 for 2 Hurricanes. 16 Hellcats down 3 more. Another 16 Hellcats down 2 of the remaining 4. Another group of Corsairs come in along with two P-38s groups. Even my first group of P-51A Mustangs showed up and found the skies empty. 18 Blenheim, 16 Wellington, 25 B-25s target the 13 ID while 32 Blenheim hit the 35 ID. 96 B-25s go after BFs. His troops move out and the base is empty after the turn.

22nd - Troops at base are attacked by 38 Vals, 38 Kates, 105 Helens

2nd Marine stack at 3 NW of Esperance - moving 4 or 5 miles/day.

New Guinea:
Merauke -
22nd - over 190 B-24s come in to hit the AF despite the "severe storms." There is NO CAP!! My P-38s don't fly. I destroy over 20 planes on the ground, but don't do much damage to AF (see my report for next two days).

South Pacific & Solomons:
Rennell Island - invasion TFs one day out

Koumac -
22nd - 36 Avengers hit BF one hex SE and then shock attack (26;16) by tank.

Noumea -
21st - landings!!
22nd - Empty base switches to Allies. I had landed part of division in Transport Mode. Oops!!

Munda -
22nd - Only 3 Zeros face 24 B-17 and 48 B-24s that come in multiple strikes.

Engineering: Kirakira AF2; Port Augusta AF8; Luganville AF7; Ramree AF7;

Notes:
Solomons - Looks like there may be a SNLF and/or Naval Guard at some dot bases to slow me down as subs move in and give me some intel.

Burma - Nick seems to be retreating, but how far??

Ships to use in the Solomons depends on the level of development of the bases you take and the opposition expected. If the development is low and you need to off-load quickly and get out of Dodge, LSTs are the go-to cargo vessel and APDs are the best troop carriers. If you can protect them well, use your xAKs and xAPs. You need the APAs and AKs for the actual invasions. LCTs [Allies' version of barges] have short range and not much capacity so they are only good for helping small bases near major bases get some supply.

On another subject - Why are you holding up all those very useful ships waiting for Monterey? Leave two DDs for Monterey and send the xAKs with two DDs. Take the other warships and head to PH where you can get a three day start on Bunker Hill's 10 day upgrade before Monterey arrives.

Burma - Where's Waldo?? The screenshot shows that Nick seems to be withdrawing, but to where?? It shows troops at Rangoon.

On the PT attack failure - I suspect facing 40-odd 5" guns and 20 or so 5.9" guns had something to do with the decision to withdraw.

On the IJA losses near Kalgoorlie - a disproportionate number of support troops and guns were destroyed. Somewhere in the dice rolls for your units I suspect your tanks overran an artillery or mortar unit.

2nd - Same same

Norfolk Island - Attack on 1st is 126:1. Base falls!!

Thousand Ships Bay - Invasion TFs nearing Vanikoro.

Russell Island - Troops headed away from Vava'u.

Engineering: Prome AF2; Rennell AF3; Ndeni P3; Efate P3; Koumac AF5; Tennant Creek AF4; Kweilin F5; Ramree AF8;

Notes:
Ramree - I invaded here on August 11th. In less than two months, the base is maxed out and I'm at the gates of Rangoon. Having supplies flow from here has helped.

Horn Island - I see the same 3 CL, 7 DDs here at least once every two days. Probable Fast Transport TF as base is hit by over 100 2e bombers daily with occasional BB TFs. I have 2 CAs and 8 Fletcher DDs now at Portland Roads. Time to raise the ante.

South Pacific - Besides moving the invasion TFs up from Vava'u, transports are busy moving troops up from Pago Pago and Vava'u area. Some are going to Noumea and Brisbane to get them together as I had place troops all over to keep under stacking limits.

Thousand Ships Bay - Invasion TFs are at Vanikoro.

Russell Island - Invasion TFs are at Vanua Lava.

Engineering: Prome AF3; Meiktila AF5; Rennell AF4; Koumac AF6; Noumea P5;

Notes:
Burma - Nick reports his new defense line is set.
Rangoon has 28 LCUs, 69900/596/668 and 99 fighters & 12 bombers
Pegu has 7 LCUs, 34600/336/151 and no planes.
Plans are to move into both bases and focus on capturing Pegu first. Most of my troops are over 50 prep level to low 60s. Of course, I have a Corp and Command HQ prepping for BOTH bases. I have to mention this here as many players know how much I harp on this as an Allied player. Need that extra 90% bonus to win these battles.
Need to gain air superiority, bomb his LI to nothing to stop further supply production, and stop and ships from unloading supplies. Bassien has not been captured yet, Prome has AF at 3(7) and has BF and construction units marching towards it, Toungoo is at 4(7) and is close to level 5. Troops are still marching through the jungle from Imphal area to get down here. Multiple units coming from Ramree. To be honest, I was expecting a more forward defense around Prome and Toungoo. This will give me experience on how to conduct a siege as Allies late in game. Stay tuned!!

Wuchow - 21 Helens hit AF on 6th. This has been a 'milk run' for some days. Not on the 7th. 23 P-66s are moved in for CAP trap on 7th and shoot down 8 of 21 Helens. However, the losses in the "Air Losses" screen afterwards show 30 lost. What number do I go by?!?

Sian - On 7th, 9 Sally come in first before the 29 Oscars. My P-40s are back at Chungking.

Lanchow - 29 Sally hit isolated troops to NE daily.

Australia:
Horn Island -
Two groups of P-38s fly both 5th & 6th along with 30 Mithcells and 66 PV-1s. Weather halts any missions on 7th. I move my three groups of Anson (light bombers) up to Coen.

Kalgoorlie - stack two hexes to west has ground bb attacks daily as Nick moves in more troops. For 7th...

Notes:
BC Repulse is at Sydney along with two old American BBs and 2 CAs for overdue upgrades. Those four ships are upgrading right now. Since she would not upgrade, I sent a PM to MichaelM. This is his reply...

quote:

Tonnage. Ship too big to fit in shipyard as upgrade causes some float damage. If no float damage, tonnage is still important but can be affected by spare shipyard capacity, naval support, and other tenders present.

Michael


Looks like she will head to USA with TKs (14 knot) that are there unloading fuel.

OPPONENT WANTED!!

No, not for this game.

In about a month or so, I hope to see Reluctant Admiral version 6.0 be finished. John 3rd has to wait until middle of August for his two young boys to go back to school and his wife (she works part time at school) to get it done. This version will have the main changes from the prior versions in having the cargo capacity decreased by 1/3 like you find in DBB-C. Something I favor.

I started a RA game as Allies vs DivPac88 and that ended suddenly when he went back into hospital for his cancer. He was able to play some afterwards against somebody else before his death. I then started another RA PBEM as Japan vs Mike Solli, but the military took him away.

I have played both sides and will be looking for somebody to play Japan. I'm finding I like the Allied micro-management that is needed to launch counter attacks and invasions against a prepared opponent. Hopefully, my lessons in western Australia in this game will help me out in my next game. You will see the House Rules (HR) in the first few pages of this AAR that we can modify. The game will not get started for one to two months, but want to get an opponent lined up before RA is done. Send me a PM if interested.

Subs:

CVs:
Mine are returning to Luganville.
KB and Company are ???
INTEL reports indicate that CV Kaga is at Port Hedland.

Burma:
Rangoon -
14th - 6 Nick and 57 Tojo on CAP vs first sweep by 20 P-38s with 30 Hurricanes on LRCAP. I lose 6 to his 2. 15 P-40N1 then sweep in and I lose another 5 planes (mostly Hurricanes) vs 7 for Japan. Thankfully, I get the Spitfire VIII next month for my Brits. Finally, the 4e bombers make their appearance as 51 B-24s and 27 Liberator IIs arrive to hit the AF. They easily push past the 14 Tojo. Five smaller raids with 9 B-24 each follow. Then, the 'hungover' fighter groups sweep - 50 P-38s, 22 P-51s, 37 P-40s, 25 P-38s. All the troops arrive.
15th - 15 Hurricanes (LRCAP) and 9 P-40N1s face off vs 73 George, 18 Tojo, and 69 FRANKS. I lose 3 P-40s for no Japanese. The second sweep of 50 P-38s and 34 Hellcats does better, but I lose 10 for 7. The 25 P-40N25s escorting in bombers with 13 Hurricanes still on LRCAP do there job of keeping his fighters off my 6 Blenheim and 33 B-25s. I lose another 14 for only 1 Frank. No fighters are left to face his 100 strong CAP/LRCAP as 10 of 46 bombers (Blenheim, Wellington, and Liberator) are shot down. Another 9 of 24 Blenheim are shot down in next two strikes. CAP/LRCAP is down to just 30 planes as my 4e bombers arrive. Only 1 of 23 B-24 & Wellington are lost. 25 P-40N25 come in with my 24 B-24s and 12 B-25s. I lose 1 for 1. Then, 2 of 24 B-24s are lost (1 in A2A and 1 to flak). Then, a series of small strikes - 12 B-25, 12 B-24, 12 B-24, 12 B-24, 12 B-25. In what appears to be a developing pattern, more fighters come in to sweep AFTER the bombers - 25 P-38, 35 P-38, 22 P-40N1, 16 P-40N1, 19 P-51A. 6 DDs followed by 2CA, CL bombard my troops.
See next posting for ground bb results and further explanation.

QUESTION - For the more experienced players, what will I need to bring in to capture this base??

Disposition:
Pegu - 2893 AV with 1 Chinese Corp (now headed for Rangoon and to gain me control of hexside), 3 Indian and 1 British Division, 50 Tank Bde, 208 Motorized Bde, 3x Armor Rgt. Less than 50 supplies.

1 SE Pegu - 5 LCUs 18800/189/69

Moulmein - AF4 with 80 fighters - 19 LCUs 33100/170/141

Bassien - AF 1(6) no BFs or construction LCUs here yet.

Prome - AF 5(7) with plenty of supplies and fighters.

Toungoo - AF 6(7)

Plans:
Right now, I think the best thing for me to do is further isolate Rangoon. Nick had written that he hadn't seen any AARs with Japan leaving a sizable force, so this will be a first. It is also a first for me. I expect the forts to be at 6, maybe 7. I control land access now. But, he has the sea approaches (brought in 2 CA, CL, and 6 DDs to bombard my troops) and air after last turn although two days worth of AF attacks has AF damage at 100.

Since he retreated more quickly than I thought (I landed at Ramree Island in mid-August), I'm still moving forces south. My BF and construction units are still flowing south. Some are moving down trail from Akyab and across from Ramree while others are coming from Imphal to Dimapur areas.

My current plans are to isolate Rangoon by focusing on the capture of Moulmein, if possible, and the built up of Bassien (once Prome is expanded) and Pegu AFs to isolate the base from seaborne supplies.

Is this what you would do??
If so, how would you do so??
If not, then what??

Thanks!!

Do you have any CAs/CLs in the IO that can bombard Rangoon? You need to kill off some of his artillery and AA for sure!
Short of running him out of supply, including what the units hold, I don't see much chance for an assault for some time.

He is going to be in trouble if you get some dive and attack bombers into nearby bases. Will be troublesome to evacuate..he might lose the units in Rangoon. it might be a delaying tactic, though...maybe he is running Fast Transport missions there.

Well, I think it's not a bad tactic. Japan can sacrifice few LCUs if that means denying the allies Rangoon (which is the most important base in that region) for some more months. Also without Rangoon the Burma road remains closed...which is a very good news for Japan!

Well, I think it's not a bad tactic. Japan can sacrifice few LCUs if that means denying the allies Rangoon (which is the most important base in that region) for some more months. Also without Rangoon the Burma road remains closed...which is a very good news for Japan!


Yeah, but with only 1800 AV its not much of a delay?

Battle for Rangoon

QUESTION - For the more experienced players, what will I need to bring in to capture this base??


Before or after 3 to 6 Divisions from his Army in Western Australia arrive?
