Kalgoorlie Falls!!

Key: TT = Torpedo; bb = ground bombardment; c = casualties; b = base hits; s = supply hits; r = runway hits; p = port hits; AV = Assault Value; DC = Depth Charged; (*) = destroyed aircraft;

Subs:
I-17 sinks PG Tulsa off Adelaide.
Tarpon is not hit by 4 DDs off Georgetown.
S-35 @ Mili (Marshall Islands) and decides to use her 4" deck gun vs an xAK. She gets 10 hits, but does NOT use a TT.
Near Kusaie Island - Herring gets 1 of 2 TT to hit an xAK. This is followed by not 1, not 2, BUT 3 messages..... My least favorite phrase at this time is, "hit, but no explosion."

CVs:
American CVs are 13 hexes west of Wellington

India/Burma:

China:
Yenan - Up to 28 Sally hit AF daily;

By-Passed:
Cebu - Up to 22 Sally/Helen hit AF daily;

Batavia - Up to 10 Nell and 6 Lily hits the AF daily;

I 'think' I have enough time to wait for the 3 BFs to get in Strategic Mode at Esperance and move through here before I evacuate the base. I might be wrong. Some here are placed in Strategic Mode after this attack as no other enemy units are seen


5th - Nothing

6th - 42 Oscars strafe and 54 Sally attack the 4th Aussie Div as she tries to get in Strategic Mode and inflict 427 casualties. This is followed up by a shock attack by the Guards Tank Div that gets 311J:85A odds and drops the forts to 0. I'm in trouble!!

Off into the desert I go and it wasn't necessary for most of the troops. The 3 BFs I had stayed here for end up one hex to SW and will need to retreat south to try to get across the dessert via the trails. Upon reflection, the ONLY unit that I should have not left here was the 4th Div. Slaps self in head in disgust!!


West of Charleville - 56 Recon shock attacks and destroys the C/D CD unit on 5th;

South Pacific:
Tanna - 9 Zero are on CAP on 7th when 4 waves of 36 B-17s come in at 11k to hit the AF. They destroy 2 Zero for one of their own and barely can hit the AF runway.

Notes:
A large attack on the just built size 1 AF at Bourke is planned for next day with most of my Australian air force.

Lots of 6/42 upgrades happening at major ports.

A screenshot of the "Quite War" which is the India/Burma front. I will be spending lots of PPs for the rest of 42 here to get an army form able to go back after the monsoon season ends. I get one more American division as reinforcements along with two at present that may need PP to be bought out. The question is where to attack?? From Ledo south to open path to China, down from Imphal to capture Katha and head for clear terrain, or along the coast (I still control Cox's Bazar and Akyab).

quote:

11. Burma/NE India Monsoon Rules
Offensive operations in jungle and mountain hexes on the Burmese front should be stopped from May 15th to October 15th for the Monsoon Season, allowing R&R, unit rotations, and give both players on the front a much less bloody (and much more interesting) experience. This would mean:
1. No deliberate or shock attack in the jungle hexes in the designated area
2. Deliberate Attacks allowed in non-Jungle Terrain
3. Bombardment attacks are still allowed anywhere
4. Movement into friendly or empty hexes is still allowed
5. The number of aircraft allowed to fly from a base is reflected in its size x10 (Sz-5 mean 50% can fly. The others may rest/train.
6. No offensive carrier operations in the Gulf of Bengal against Burma (other naval ops, including bombardment, are still allowed). Striking Bengal, Northern India or Malaya from carriers in the Gulf is still allowed, of course.

Hexes would be corresponding to everything above the "Thailand" label within Burmese and Thailandese borders + the few jungle hexes going 3 or 4 hexes into "India" (Kohima, Ledo, Imphal area)

Joc,

Here is the situation around Kalgoorlie as of 10th. The 4th Aussie Div is in bad shape, but I hope the walk across the desert only makes them stronger. I have 135 squads in the pool, but also need to upgrade the 2nd and 5th Div and fill out. The 55 squads a month don't last long.

June 8 & 9:
KB is sighted....the hard way!!

Key: TT = Torpedo; bb = ground bombardment; c = casualties; b = base hits; s = supply hits; r = runway hits; p = port hits; AV = Assault Value; DC = Depth Charged; (*) = destroyed aircraft;

Subs:
Tarpon is at Georgetown and launches 4 TT @ CA Ashigara. All miss! She gets hit once by DCs.
Silverside sinks a big, fat xAP 10 hexes due north of Truk with 4 TT hits. She had to fire over 1/2 her TT load to get that many hits.

CVs:
American CVs are at Wellington where the meet up with the British CVs. The Allied fleet is here, refueling!!

8th - KB gets within one hex of 14 empty transports @ 56, 177 (the west side of the words, "Southern Ocean"). 10 of 14 transports are sunk by 48 Zero escorting in 54 Kate & 63 Val;

9th - KB end the turn on the east side of "Southern Ocean" words (65,176 and 20 hexes away from Melbourne). She runs into 2 of the damaged xAKs at night and then sinks the 4 that were still afloat with 9 Vals & 13 Kates.

Cebu - Up to 10 Sally hit the AF daily;

Australia:
Bourke -
8th - 8(2) Oscar are on CAP as 21 P-40E sweep the skies clear; 17 B-17s, 16 A-12 Hudsons, 38 B-18 Bolo hit the AF with slight damage in multiple small strikes; 22 more P-40Es sweep afterwards.

9th - 9(3) Oscar are again on CAP and my 22 P-40E are able to push them aside without any losses; 20 more P-40Es sweep aside the lone Oscar; 18 B-17s, 13 A-29s, 37 B-18 Bolo are able to get better results (mouse over shows AF damage at 32)

near Kalgoorlie - 42(1) Oscar strafe the MG Bn on 9th;

1 east of Broken Hills - 3rd Tank Regiment is guarded by 14(1) Zero on LRCAP, but my 8 Kitty allow 33(2) B-26 to destroy 2 vehicles; 4th Tank Regiment has only 3 Zeros on CAP and my 7(1) Kitty allow 9 B-26 to destroy 2 vehicles;

Sydney - a SC TF ends up just off this base headed SW. Why??

South Pacific:
Wellington - transports head east for the long trip back to San Fran. CV TFs and a single SC TF (since I played John 3rd in a G'canal game just after AE came out, I try to have a SC TF lead my CVs as I lost or had severely damaged a few to his aggressive use of his BBs getting into my carriers and blowing by the CAs) are reorganized (add some DDs). The CVs are ordered out to NW, but many TF have max out on 1000 op points.

Notes:
2 old Vindicator groups (18 planes each) make the trip from Vava'u to Aukland. They will make the final transfer to Australia next turn. Got to love their range.

40 B-17s, 16 LB-30s, 50 P-39s, and 75 P-40s are moved into Melbourne. The 4e bombers are set at 11k and Naval Attack with 10% search. I have the empty transport from dropping off the 6th Aussie Div at Adelaide set to Full Speed to get close enough to LRCAP. They should be beyond Kates deadly torpedo range. However, I had moved my Air HQs inland and none are here.

Allied CVs are ordered out from Aukland. I hope to be within 30 hexes after next turn (doubtful) or the turn afterwards to fly my SBDs (transfer range 30) off.

Stay Tuned!!

EDIT - I forgot to mention that CV Wasp and BB North Carolina arrived at Panama.

I was surprised to see Mini-KB show up (see screenshot). They just bounced off the armor as I had only 1 system point of damage between both BBs. I will move almost 200 fighters to this base next turn. I think Nick will try to combine both CV TFs to go after the three old "R" Class BBs here. They may sink, but I intend to extract a huge price in planes and quality pilots. They came with 6th Aus Div and were to be used for the cancelled invasion of Geraldton.

The ships sunk at Melbourne were small and not significant. I had already moved to NZ anything worth saving. The Allies are having success in southern Australia due to bringing superior number of fighters to each of the A2A battles for the last few week. When I get 1:1 or less, the Allies lose out.

KB is 8 due west of Melbourne
Mini-KB is the other TF.

Here is the A2A losses for the 1st day of battle. I came out ahead and I have plenty of B-17s. Plus, i have multiple air groups withdrawing at the end of the month, so this pool will not run dry soon.

Only had 10 'electronic' pilots killed.

USN fighter pilots - I've devoted two of my 18 plane Kingfisher FP groups that start in USA to Air skill training. Many players don't do anything to help this vital pool in 42.

Joc - When KB and two days later Mini-KB came into view off to the west of Melbourne, my CVs were low on fuel and at Wellington. After refueling, they were to head towards Melbourne, but they were too far away to even get close.

Getting your fighters to fly as Escorts....

What are the key things to get this to happen??
I just had my medium bombers from Adelaide (distance 7 hexes) go in alone ONE hex east of Broken Hill and NONE of the four P-40 groups stationed there flew as Escorts.

AFAIK, the two key things are a common Air HQ within range of both and control of the weather ...

China actually looks quite good for the Allies at this stage of the game.  Do you think he has taken any troops out of China to join the horde in Oz?

Not that I can tell. Nor has any Intel Reports shown any moved there. If anywhere, I would suspect them headed for Burma. It will be some time, but once supplies flow into China, he will be in trouble.

I will combine the 90 plus 4e bombers at Sydney and some of my 2e bombers at Newcastle to hit the port and AF at Brisbane at night. I will also hit Mandalay and Rangoon with B-17D (can get from Calcutta to Rangoon as normal range) and Blenheim IVs. I will introduce him to my P-38s and Hurricanes from Imphal.

A burning bush...

Hey - regarding shock and awe - can you can get any ships with FP close enough for a night recon of the Brisbane port? I dunno if it would help a night bombing run but they help out for night-time bombardment missions...

Is he still reluctant to cross the LOD? If so I say use that against him! You can zoom in and out using the LOD for protection!

Yeah, I was wondering if it might be feasible to send a bunch of units to surround Bourke, enter the hex from all sides except the south one and force the enemy to retreat across the LOD and trigger the reinforcements. Difficult to orchestrate but IIRC, there are several small tank and M/G units in Oz early on.

June 23, 24, 25:
Aukland is mined
I've now lost more subs to mines than ASW.
Night bombing starts on the 25th by Allies as moonlight approaches 100%

Key: TT = Torpedo; bb = ground bombardment; c = casualties; b = base hits; s = supply hits; r = runway hits; p = port hits; AV = Assault Value; DC = Depth Charged; (*) = destroyed aircraft;

Subs:
Seadragon and Sturgeon both hit two mines each at Merak (Java). Sturgeon sinks while a heavily damaged Seadragon limps into Batavia. I wonder why both my subs are doing up there and figure out that they had a home port of Esperance in western Australia and when that base fell they switched to the closest base from their patrol zones off NE Australia and that was Batavia. I then discover two more subs in the area and they don't have enough fuel to get to safety. They are ordered to Colombo, but only have enough fuel to get midway up the western coast of Sumatra before they run out.
Adak Island - S-27 gets the better of a sub vs sub encounter with RO-34 and sinks her with a single TT.
Saury off Cairns goes to the surface to sink an xAK with one TT and 13 shell hits. As many Allied players know, they get the dreaded, "Hit! but no explosion" message over and over and over again. She emptied her tubes and returns to base after getting ONE TT to actually explode.
Off Kona - I-23 sinks AM Turkey with single TT.

CVs: Allies are three days out of Pearl

India/Burma:
Rangoon - on the 25th sees 11 B-17D Fortress from Calcutta = 2p at night; 12 Oscars are on CAP during the day as 12(3) Wellington come in at 5k to hit the port = 1p, CM Kamome, Bomb hits 2, heavy fires, heavy damage and CM Sarushima, Bomb hits 1, heavy fires;

China:
Yenan - Up to 31 Sally hit the AF daily

Up to 4 bb ground attacks daily.

By Passed:
Batavia - Up to 9 Nell hit the AF daily while 7 Lily hit the troops; at least one bb ground attack every few days;

Can I destroy and/or disable enough tanks to escape??


Brisbane - Severe storms on the 25th limit the effectiveness and number of bombers that fly at night. I had move significant numbers to both Newcastle and Sydney and spent PP to upgrade the RAAF HQ leader. 15(1) Hudson I = 0

South Pacific:
Aukland - On 24th, 111 mines are swept (looks like a lot of subs were used); 17 more are swept on 25th;

Notes:
Troops for scheduled invasion of Gilberts load at San Fran for a trip to Pearl to unload. Meanwhile, the 'Fleet" heads for Pearl for repairs and upgrades.

I've thought about this and I don't think I have enough troops to keep him from steadily pushing me back to Sydney and Melbourne. I have 5 Aussie divisions plus 2 American divisions plus some other smaller units. He has the OOB from Scenario 2 here, so he has the troops. I need more air power and that will not happen till 43.

Getting your fighters to fly as Escorts....

What are the key things to get this to happen??
I just had my medium bombers from Adelaide (distance 7 hexes) go in alone ONE hex east of Broken Hill and NONE of the four P-40 groups stationed there flew as Escorts.


Are those 4 separate air groups? You can divide them (A/B/C) and set them to escort. I think it gives you more rolls ofthe dice for successful escort services <pun intended>. I know I share the same frustration as Japan when I'm attacking Manila/Clark from Takao. I think a fighter sweep to clear the enemy base of CAP is where I'd use most of my fighters and then use maybe a partial or two of a single air group as escort... You might shoot for changing to leaders with higher AIR ratings...

June 29, 30, July 1, 2, 3, 4:
The calm before the next storm?!?

Key: TT = Torpedo; bb = ground bombardment; c = casualties; b = base hits; s = supply hits; r = runway hits; p = port hits; AV = Assault Value; DC = Depth Charged; (*) = destroyed aircraft;

Subs:
I-23 is hit once directly by DC 3 SW of Pearl
Note - Nick was written to by Obvert in his AAR about the use of Jakes vs Glens on his subs. I replied that I would prefer him going back to Glens. Thanks Obvert!! I was wondering why he was so good at keeping track of TFs around my major ports.

CVs: Allies CVs undergoing repairs and upgrades at Pearl.

India/Burma:
Back to normal...the "Quite War"

China:
Yenan - Up to 29 Sally hit the AF daily; same, same!

Up to 4, but usually 3, ground bb attacks daily from outside Ichang to east of Sian; I get an increase in troop experience while he destroys supplies;

Australia:
Tamworth -
29th - 42 Tojo sweep and destroy 4 of 25 Kittyhawks
30th - Tojo's return, but find the skies empty (not going to fight Tojo with kitty)

Toowoomba -
30th - Oscars are not a good enough CAP as my B-17s are able to hit the AF
1st - Tojo are added to the CAP and this causes the Allies to lose almost 20 B-17s to 4 Jap fighters for the day; this base will be left alone for the next few days.

Bourke - P-40s from Roto sweep before the B-25s & B-26s from Wagga Wagga hit the AF almost daily (weather permitting); the base is closed and an occasional Oscar is destroyed on the ground;

Broken Hill - My P-40s do NOT cover B-18s hitting the troops to the east on 1st; add this to the B-17s shot down over Toowoomba today and the Allies lose 28 bombers for the day

4 or 5 hexes east of Kalgoorlie - Almost 50 Sally hit the retreating troops daily; some shock attacks do not push me out, but the retreat is slow;

Perth - coastwatchers report 82 ships present on the 2nd; is there something being planned from here??

South Pacific:
Transport TF arrives at NZ that is to go to Australia. It contains almost 60k in supplies, SW HQ, 3x SeaBees, 2x TD, 2x FA.

Central Pacific:
BFs and construction units are headed for both Canton and Baker.

Notes:
Intel Reports - On 30th, it shows the 4th Gds Div at Perth; on 1st, it shows Imp Gds Div is prepping for Port Augusta; on 2nd, it shows 4th Div is prepping for Nadi;

Due to Intel reports and with the last of the retreating troops from Cairns and Townsville finally making it to safety, the 32 Div and other troops are ordered to move from Broken Hill to Port Augusta.
