Tsuyung
I *thought* I’d stood down the entire horde of units here on the 2nd of April but I only stood down a single arty unit… The D_ATK dropped forts to 0 and Steve’s Chines lost another 86 squads destroyed to 1 for me. Steve also shows a negative for prep, exp, and supply. I’ve got plenty of supply so I’m pushing a shock attack this turn. I’ve got my armor back in the hex and MB are attacking a 6LCU stack SE of Tsuyung or attacking the defenders of Tsuyung base.

Burma
The 2nd RTA arrives @ Prome and is unpacking.

Operation Dragon Kite
The 3rd Army arrives @ Pisanuloke and is now unpacking

DEI
Operation Slinky has been discovered. What will Steve do? He has TB/DB/MB on naval attack. A few air groups had a go at Slinky but were driven off with the might of Slinky’s lethal anti-aircraft weaponry. Slinky will stay the course.

Singapore
Troops rest this turn. Supplies are good and the 53rd Division arrives this turn. AV @ Singapore = 2,863. Steve had a plus to leaders so I’ve bumped mine up. Something I don’t understand tho – I knocked his forts down to 2 but he gets a Forts(+)… Whatsa Forts+?
Next turn will be a D_ATK.

Mini KB
I’m moving Mini KB over to Babeldaob. I think I can spring it along the back end (west side) of Java and tap into some enemy shipping…

Tsuyung falls. Yippeee.

D_ATK of Singapore ordered for next turn.

Troops and ships move. Airplanes fly.

I'm experiencing network problems with Verizon so things will be a bit brief till my home network is back online.

I had another go @ Singapore and dropped forts to 2. Steve lost 78 squads and I lost 25. Odds were 1:2. In about 3 days I'll have another division to throw into the fray...

My FB killed a Fortress @ Tarakan.

So far I've identified 3 of the 8-stack near Tsuyung as Corps - the 42nd, the 4th, & the 76th.

Otherwise a slow turn.

I just got my replacement router from Verizon on Tuesday and had it up after a family dinner. I sent a movie and turn to Steve so we should be back to our normal schedule of turns.

Operation Dragon Kite
Units are marching for Moulmein

Operation Slinky
TF is east of Alor and headed back to Truk. Not much happened here but the intent is to really start deploying my Cruisers/BB on missions to bump up the crew stats. Soft kills and bombardments have been doing good in this goal.

Operation Dirty Dozen
Bombardment TF sent to Baker Island on APR 7 1942

Operation Kabang with an S
TF is running up the Strait of Malacca to Bombard Sabang. I’m hoping to tap into enemy aircraft and small ships that have been there for over 30 days. Steve thinks this is a back-water. Time to show him different.

Singapore
The 4th Guards Division should arrive next turn. AV @ Singapore = 2,787 & supplies = 17,700tn. Bomber groups are rested and ready to play again. I’m gunna start dumping here @ Singapore again. My last D_ATK dropped forts down to 2 and I don’t want to give Steve time enough to bump the forts back up.

China
I’ve got troops marching in to Kienko so I can start on Chengtu.

I’ve got armored units moving to 74,42 to cut off supplies to troops along the road from Chengtu to NE of Tsuyung where Steve has a stack of 9 Corps sitting there.

Supply Question:
I want to draw supplies up to Tsuyung. I have supplies required bumped up to 9,293 but nothing seems to be coming up the roads/rail… I’m getting ready to deploy transports to fly in supplies but if I can get the supplies to come over the land routes it would be better.

Burma
The 2nd RTA is @ Prome and digging in. Steve has a Corps across the river. I’m pounding it a bit to use up supplies.

Toungoo has forts @ 2. My infantry & armored units that had been abused near Meiktila are near full strength. I want to get my supply situation good @ Tsuyung so I can hit Steve’s troops from two sides at once.



Playing with the Johnston
Steve attacked Johnston with fighters and SBD… My CAP did a good job in thrashing them. They were on a port attack. The only thing I have @ port is an ACM to service the mine field. I’m guessing he must be trying a pre-invasion attack but my search aircraft haven’t found it. Maybe it’s behind his carrier TF? That would be very un-Steve like… I’m deploying additional subs in the area from Kwajalein but they might be a few days too late.

Operation Easter Eggs
I’m running a few TFs to add or build up mine fields to some of my bases. Johnston is one of those bases due to receive eggs.

@ Johnston Steve's Carrier TF has disappeared. No invasion force either. I think he just came over to get his arse kicked and now he's leaving...

I'm taking another swing @ Singapore this turn. Hopefully I drop the forts down to 1 or 0.

Palembang gets a break for a turn or two.

All operations and movements in theatres are status quo other than Burma which is in the pic below. Seeing Steve push kind of surprises me tho as I figured he'd be very low on supplies...

I've got The supply route blocked to Steve's big stack by Tsuyun. A lot of movement through out China as troops are gearing for the push into Burma from China or headed for Chung king.

In Burma I'm running the last two units of the 21st that I need to form another Division to Toungoo. More AC are arriving in the theatre. I've got two Engineer units with strong aircraft support that should be at Rangoon in a few turns. That'll let me beef up my air power in the theatre and start running bombers over to counter Port Blair.

3 more divisions are en route to Singapore. I'm bombing the ever-loving piss out of that airfield.

Steve hit Johnston and this time I think he will try to take it. I have no recon in the area but I'll wager his invasion fleet is only a turn or two away...

So here's a Pic:






I'm trying to move supplies up north so I can go after Chungking, Chengtu, and push hard west through Tsuyung and attack Paoshan. How do I pull supplies up - or am I forced to use air transport?

Thanks in advance to thoughts/suggestions.

That's tough. I think you will need to fly supplies in until you can build the bases up a lot more. Even then, relying upon one secondary road will make it really hard to keep many ground units in supply.

Yup - my thoughts too. I'm in the process of setting up Hanoi & Haiphong with air support and supplies that I can transport up north. I wish I'd have realized the challenges of sending supplies to Tsuyang and Kunming earlier tho...

Question: When do you use shock attacks? I normally do a deliberate attack or two looking for heavy damage to the enemy troops prior to a shock attack. I might try one 1rst turn if I know the enemy troops are out of supplies. Anyone do something different?

I'd say yes - I approach this differently. I find that deliberate attacks don't really do heavy damage when the odds are relatively equal (and if the odds are not relatively equal, it doesn't really matter what type of attack you order, since you're going to win (or lose) regardless.)

There are generally only two cases where I'll opt for a shock attack:

Case One: Attacking a known enemy stronghold (think Clark, Batavia, etc) with fort levels down to 1 or less. Obviously you need enough straight AV (and good quality AV) to think you can win (or you wouldn't order an attack at all), but if you have this then the multiplier for a shock attack may just get you odds slightly more favorable than you'd achieve with a deliberate attack, albeit at the expense of a few more casualties. It's a completely calculated attack, where excepting a really bad roll of the dice you still get at least a 1-1, so even if you don't outright win the battle your casualties aren't too horrific.

Case Two: The complete opposite of Case One . You don't know exactly what you are facing except what the mouse-over and your best guesses tell you. Enemy reinforcements will arrive in one or two turns, you feel that attacking now may be your best chance to achieve that breakthrough (or to prevent it) and you're willing to gamble. If it's a gamble, give yourself the best possible odds for success (which means utilizing the shock multiplier.) Very effective when you guess correctly. Very costly when you're wrong. That's why they call it gambling. Hope this at least gives you some food for thought.

On a side note, I've been reading (and enjoying) both sides of this one. While I happily play both sides, I tend to find myself more sympathetic to the underdog (Japan, usually) when it comes to AARs, so keep fighting the good fight, sir!

I'm not much of a gambler on my ground units; it takes 4-ever to rebuild a division...

The deliberate attacks tell me what I'm up against. I'm not going to cause much damage against an even-stacked opponent - especially when it's in a city with forts. The deliberate attacks help me drop the fort levels down and I do the shock attack when I think my opponent's stack is in trouble.

Singapore



Has been a pain in my backside.

I had 5700 AV last turn and I think Steve's forts were @ level 3. I have the SA HQ next door @ Johore Bahru... I had supplies & I have good leaders and most of the LCU have planning set for Singapore.

Thoughts on what I'm doing wrong - or do you think I've just been running a really bad streak with the dice?

Does anyone have a good link to ground combat they'd like to share?

Where & how is he getting supply? The LI only provides around 140 a day and his troops should be out of supply eating shoe leather by now.

Supply is Singapore's weak point. Too many AA and ENG units there to rely upon air strikes to soften up the troops.

I am definitely no expert, but I would have used high altitude escorted bomb runs and bombardments designed to use up his supplies combined with a blockade of Singapore until he was out of supplies. I am sure that is easier said than done.

Early on you didn't bring enough muscle and unfortunately his troops are now very experienced and probably have pretty good morale too.

You got his forts to zero -- can you keep them there? Can your troops attack again?

I did the bombing thing (and still am) for the last 2 months... He brought in TFs that dumped some supplies. The only way I could attack was with fighters @ 100ft. If I plant blockaids they get drawn into Singapore and the minefields and CDs... If I fly fighters from Singkawang and/or Jahore Bahru to CAP my blockaid TFs it decreases the number of MB I can fly from my bases. and Steve has been a fiend in the use of his subs... If I leave TFs in a predictable pattern they'll be dodging fish. And AAA has been pretty strong against my MB.

As fast as I knock down his forts Steve builds them up again... I think the model is way off in the defense process unless I'm doing something brain-damaged...

Currently my troops need resupply. Forts @ Singapore show level 2. I plan to attack again as soon as supplies are good.

You have a point regarding experience of his troops now but there's nothing I can do about that but try disruption and my choice is to attack the AF to *try* and stop fort from going up, switch to attacking his troops, or be ineffective at both by splitting my bombing targets.

Sigh! I really-truly feel at a loss on the ground combat. I can't tell if things have changed with the mods we've deployed, if it's just me using bad tactics, or if I've just been unlucky with the dice.

Very early on you might have made mistakes that have been compoounded by a couple of bad die rolls. From my perspective fundamentally you did not focus with all platforms required to seize Singapore with all haste before the fort levels made it to level 3. Operationally you split focus and even in scenrario #2, the early Chez vs. CanoeRebel AAR should provide a good background if the IJ do not blitzkreig Singapore and Palembang with all effort. Your opponent was very creative with the space and time you gave him. After that things went downhill. But, the evidence before you is that nobody has experinced the problems you have now in Singapore with the same level of software.

OK back to the Moose's AAR ...

In my game, albeit against the AI, I have 9 ENG in Singapore. They are amazing at repairing airfield damage as well as building forts when supplies allow it.

He obviously changed leaders since he is not getting a malus for them.

Can you run your sweepers in to work on the minefield present in Singapore?

Minefields of your own might hinder his subs? Sure they atrophy faster without a base, but might be worth it in the shallows.

In May 1942 my Singapore has only 150 mines left so if he didn't lay any new ones that would be approximately what is left. I hope that is not too much of a spoiler...

I feel your frustration - just throwing out ideas.
