Ally subs torpedo 1 ship, Japanese subs have a great turn and are finally operating off the west coast, they get 5 different ships, most are sunk. None are very important but its still a serious problem

KB may be at Roi namur
CVL sighted above PI
CVL sighted below davoa it attacks one of my SAGs and sinks a DD and puts 1 torp into a CL
The activities of the CVLs may end the golden age of my SAGs having so much fun awwww

Kongo supports landing at Mersing and seems fine after taking 9 bomb hits last turn. My torpedo bombers at Singapore will only drop bombs grrr i wonder if i need an AGP at Singapore. but we get 3 hits on Kongo
Rangoon air we get 5 japs

Brunei falls
Hollandia Falls
Rabaul holds off an attack
Wake holds off a fresh landing

More landings at Wake Island, CD guns lite 2 ak's on fire
Wake Falls after doing a great job holding out

Ally subs set an AK on fire and torpedo another
Minor air skirmishes at Rangoon and SI

At Kuantuan the non torpedo having Wildebeasts hit 3 AKs
At Singkawang it appears the repeated bombardments have forced the japs to pull out air
At PI the Japanese have a good bombing run on the port, i dont know why there was 2 ss there

Jap subs hit a PC near PH and sink it, yawn. Subs hit an AO near SF, OUCH
PI harbor bombed finishing off the last of the dregs that were there

Wildebeasts bomb AKs near Kuatuan and get 6 hits on 3 AKs
Japanese ground attack at HK we are holding
Japanese have a successful landing at Kuching

Japs CVL above Kuching torpedos 2 CLs and leaves one crippled the other is not too bad, the Japanese CVL above Kuching is a problem
Possible Japanese convoy headed near Ternate region

A comment about China, I have not mentioned China because nothing is going on. He bombs a little here and there but thats it. I assumed hes just ignoring it. But when I look at it more closely it seems that he is moving units. So perhaps he is concentrating for an offensive. I may need to really sit down and take a look at this, I've been taking it for granted.

Not sure why my torpedo planes at Singapore will not use torpedos, this is the single most serious issue impacting me right now. I am missing out on a lot of kills because he is being very aggressive at Mersing and Kuatuan

I wonder if the group's NavT rating is too low for the leader to be confident enough to take off? Is their NavB or LowNav rating any better?
I know on the US Carriers, the TBD Devastators will not take off with torps unless the conditions are nearly perfect - good weather at both take-off and target hex, range of less than 4 hexes, enough fighter escorts, and a final meal of steak and eggs before launch ...

You've done a good job screwing up his plans and sinking his ships.  As per TT'd.  Going to ask a stupid question.  Does your HQ's have TT's in their inventory?

Let me tell you.  You are doing a great job with this game so far.   You might be setting yourself up pretty good when 43 comes along.  He will have to slow his operations down now, to bring in fresh ships troops and ensure that he will have combat vessels around his new amphib forces.

Thanks for the encouragement, regarding the TT at Singapore, they are flying missions and bombing very well they just don't go in with Torpedos, I will check the leadership and HQ next turn.

Dec 21
CA Astoria SAG operating near PM catches an AK and PB and sink them, then head up to Kavieng for a minor skirmish with a Japanese CL SAG.
KB is sighted near Guam this is a relief to know where it is
Ally SS tear up 2 AKs
Japanese SS near PH torpedoes and sinks a AK carrying PBYs to pearl(i think it had PBYs)
We hit an SS with ASW near PH for the 1st time

Major air fight at Johore Bahru we have 1 plane shot up and japs 5
Rangoon we damage or kill 6 jap planes

HK holds
Kuching Falls

Singapore air bombs Japanese at Kuching see screenshot below, and we did a 2nd raid with 2 more hits

Re: the PBYs, just check the air losses in the Intel report and if there are a bunch of PBY ground losses last turn, they were indeed on that ship.
He is not doing a good job of providing air cover for his landings - is KB doing anything useful [to him] over at Guam? He should have his escort carriers at least covering his North Borneo landings/supply runs until LBA can take over.
Keep poking at those soft spots!

BBFANBOY!!!! thanks so much for that tip, I have so many ships running around sopac that when one gets torpedoed I sometimes dont know what was on it. Thats a great idea

Regarding the wildebeasts and the Swordfish at Singapore not using Torpedoes I found that they are commanded by 224 RAF and indeed 224 RAF has no torpedos, same with the other HQs here. Very dissapointing news. see screenshot!
I have an AS and AGP headed to Singers, maybe this will help, I dunno. Seems crazy to me that a HUGE base like Singapore has no torpedoes for the torpedo planes there. odd

KB unknown
MKB is now identified w 3xCVL/CVE above Singkawang
We attack MKB from Sing and lose 4 planes to no hits, this looks bad until....
MKB attacks Sing which goes badly for MKB as they hit 24 Buffaloes, Japs have 11 planes hit we lose 0, they miss ships at Singapore
Singapore bombs Kuantuan again and hits 2 DDs with 3 bombs total

Ally subs torpedo 2 x AKs
Jap subs Torpedo a small tanker near Palembang

DEI update, we are stripping as much fuel out of the dutch area as we can

Air attack at Rangoon Japs have 3 planes hit we have 2

BB Hiei Identified at a new Rabaul landing- i was just thinking I can't see how he can push beyond Rabaul unless he brings in a BB or CV or CVL...

Ternate Landing- we have a SAG that encounters the landing forces 1 space above Ternate but no combat happens, very dissapointing so Japanese get a free landing at Ternate, the CL adelaide will get another chance at redemption

I'm trying to get a few things out of PH thru the sub swarm, we shall see if this was a foolish risk....Good Luck and Godspeed

Thanks for the help regarding torpedo planes at Sing and how to see what you lost on a transport, great information! this is exactly why I created an AAR

The ships don't help - like me, you did not understand the process for getting torps. There is a button next to the torp amount on the air group HQ. Click that button and it brings up a screenie to let you order torpedoes from your supply, up to 20 per order. Each torp uses 10 supply, so if you order 20, you use 200 supply. You can do this again and again until you have the number of torps you want for your airgroups.

I wouldn't overdo it for a place like Singapore where you will need supply once you get cut off, and you can't eat torps. I would order two for each torp carrying aircraft - if they fly two torp missions in one turn, you can then replenish your torp stock for the next one.

EDIT - don't forget to review every other air HQ in your OOB and order torps where needed. I gave most of mine 100 torps each where supply was good, even if they don't currently support torp carrying aircraft. That way, if I move the HQ in future or move some torp-capable planes [like Catalinas] into the same base or area, I don't have to remember to order torps. Also, if you airlift the air HQ to a base with tight supply, the torps will be part of their equipment and not come out of the new base's supply.

BB thanks for the great torp info. This will make being near Singapore much more dangerous

Dec 23
KB unknown
MKB withdrew, probably near miri

Ally Subs torp an AK
Jap subs sink small AO near Palembang

Japanese sweep Sing and do very well, this is the beginning of the end for my airforces at Singapore, total losses over the day are Ally 8 and Jap1 , with 5 bettys torn up
RN raids Kuantuan(see below) we lose CL Danae and a DD, we air raid Kuantuan and lose 5 planes with no hits

BB Hiei bombards Rabaul
Jap SAG near Ternate sinks 2 AKLs fleeing Manilla

He attempts naval landing at HK, lots of hits on Jap ships with the coastal guns but he did actually pull it off
HK holds barely

Rabaul Holds
Ternate Falls(my CL SAG decided not to engage for a 2nd time)

Strange that the ships sunk list included Danae but not Kortenaer. I would not be too sure that Takao bit the dust yet - that class of Japanese CAs can normally take at least four torps, and unless your 6" shells were penetrating the armour belt the superficial damage would not be unbearable. Still, it is out of the war for a long time and there is a chance it will burn up or sink on the way to port.

The list is cut off there is a lot more ally...

Ive been trying to keep mum on my plans in SoPac, so far we have made some progress with setting up some defences but we are having issues with shortage of AP's

Managed to reinforce Midway and Canton. Other plans in the works...

Here is our bombing run on Kuantuan, cut off in pic is we did hit the airfield a few times, not too sure if this is worth continuing, but the alternative is to get swept by 20 fighters every turn

I have some B-17s in the ABDA region that need replacements, can you guys help me understand how to get them some?
They are assigned to ABDA HQ

Turn off replacements for every B-17 in game except them?
Disband or withdraw some rear area B-17s?

I want to help them, they could be causing trouble but instead they are sitting

First, you need to have B-17s of the same model in the pool. Click on the Intel button at the top and on the right of that screen, find the Aircraft Replacement Pool hypertext. Click that and check the status of the B-17s. If there are none in the pool, you would have to disband a group with the same model to get some in the pools and turn off replacements for every other group using that model.

Now, from section 16.2 in the manual:

Air units will automatically gain replacements under certain circumstances if aircraft are
available in the replacement pool and the air unit has been set to Accept Replacements. To get
replacement aircraft to flow automatically into an air unit, there must be planes in the pool and
one of the following cases must be true (the first true will take effect):

»» The air unit is located at a base with an airfield size of 1+ (or 0 if a
float-equipped group and the base is in a coastal hex) and the base
has over 20,000 supplies. Supplies will be expended at the base
and the unit will receive damaged planes from the pool (they may
repair before the next orders phase during the repair phase).

»» The air unit is located at a base and the HQ that the group is
assigned to is within transfer range of the air unit’s aircraft type,
and the HQ is located at a base with an airfield size of 1+ and has
over 20,000 supplies. Supplies will be expended at the HQ base
and the unit will receive damaged planes from the pool.

»» The air unit is located at a base and the Command level HQ that
the group is assigned to is within transfer range of the air unit’s
aircraft type, and the Command HQ is located at a base with
over 20,000 supplies. Supplies will be expended at the HQ base
and the unit will receive damaged planes from the pool.


There are a couple more paras about shib-based aircraft, then this:

If none of these conditions apply, land based air units may automatically have a sub unit
created for it at the base containing the HQ that the air unit is assigned to or the Command HQ
of the air unit’s HQ if it is not in the base. The base with the HQ must have supplies that are at
least equal to twice the base’s supply needs plus the supplies that will be expended in creating
the sub unit, the supply base must be within twice the maximum range of the aircraft type, and
there must be planes in the pool equal to:

»» 10 + (plane build rate / 2)
If these conditions are met, a sub unit of damaged planes will be placed at the HQ’s location
and supplies will be expended from the base. Note Japanese build rates are usually 0 when
production is on. Another subgroup will not be formed for the air unit until at least 7 days have
elapsed.

A maximum of 12 planes will be added to a group as replacements every 7 days.

A group may take replacements in their national home base, subject to the above conditions.
It acts as a Command HQ base.

In scenarios with production set to On, all new air units (including reinforcements, reformed
disbanded and withdrawn groups) must take planes from the replacement pool to fill out the
air unit when it arrives. Note that reinforcement units will arrive with the number of planes
specified in the editor. These planes are not drawn from the pool as they are deemed to have
been supplied elsewhere.

Aircraft units may receive replacements during the Supply Operations Phase. Air units on
airfields only check for replacements 2 out of every 3 days, while air units on ships check
for replacements every day. Any unit, excluding fragments, with less aircraft (Total Ready,
Repairing, and Reserve) than its maximum aircraft level is eligible for replacements (the main
unit’s maximum ready aircraft level is checked versus the total number of aircraft from the
main unit and sub-units). Air units with more losses will receive priority for replacements.

Air groups on carriers with more than 50% system or flood damage cannot receive
replacements.

Bases with more than 59% of service or runway damage cannot be used as a source for
replacements or upgrades.


Lots of ifs, ands and buts!

Try to down grade those B17s in the rear areas to other bombers, turn off your B 17 replacments to your other squadrons.  When you have some in your pools pull them into your squadrons.  Screen shots of the above mentioned squadrons might help us some.

Great info about the B-17s, so I think i will try to disband a smaller group at Pearl, also convert a smaller group to another bomber, and then turn off repl in USA and Pearl, that should work in theory
Me and DOCUP talked about this a bit before, I was a little unsure whether i want to disband or withdraw. I got the impression if I disband the planes are just GONE.


Dec 26th, HEAVY COMBAT TURN, this turn really indicates a change of Tactics from my opponent. He has adapted to my level of aggression and my attempts to stop his landing groups. Now we see his Carriers being more active and he is often using SAGs to ensure his landings are not interupted.

Jap sub torpedos a TK- boooo
An Ally sub loses a surface engagement with an AKL, we will be conducting a review of this captain
Ally sub torpedos and AK

Heavy bombing China, airfield at Changsha becoming untenable
Heavy bombing PI

He bombs port at Singapore sinking the CL that was damaged by MKB

KB arrives and bombs Balkipapan. I'm not 100% sure that all of KB is here.
Oh and Rabaul Holds out again
We bomb Kuantuan:

Ally SS torps a AKL, Jap subs torpedo a YP at EC
Singapore air combat Ally1 japs 6 mostly dmg;d, Singapore CAP is degraded badly
Singapore port bombed and CL is hit, looks bad

Heavy bombing in china, we bomb ternate
Our SAG raids Jesselton and misses the japs, dodges lots of Bettys, This SAG is fleeing from KB but taking a very dangerous rout

KB finishes off 4 damaged destoyers from the Lingayen raid

Japanese capture Rabaul, Lark Bn retreats. Lark BN i salute you for your determined resistance. YOu are heroes!

I set all B-17s to no repl, except ones in Batavia, and I convert 1 b-17 unit to liberators
We bomb Kuantuan:

About the disbanding of air units - whether you lose the unit or not depends on the circumstances. At remote bases where the disband order is in red, the planes are destroyed. At major bases with large airfields and the disband order in green, they should go to the pools and be available in a couple of days or three. Note that if there is another unit using the same type of aircraft at the disbandment base, and its replacement switch is still ON, the disbanded aircraft may go directly to that unit ... so make sure you set the replacements OFF before you disband the selected unit.

Thanks BB, I noticed that when I went to disband the B-17s at PH it offered to put them in certain units which I could select. None of the units available were the ones I wanted to send it to in DEI. I opted to not disband, and will just turn off all repl. except the chosen few in Batavia.
I'm glad I did this AAR because I've learned a lot of great tips

During this turn we see the destruction of our CA raiding group that hit Legaspi. After their attack the core of the CA, CL CL were in good shape, but they had KB blocking their escape. We opted to head to Jesselton because we saw intel saying a convoy was headed there. We hit a convoy with few results and ran into a Jap CA SAG and fought bravely but at that point we had serious Ammo probs. Then today we got pounded by KB. KB is now near Jolo.
Possible MKB near Davao

Japs subs torpedo an AK near SF

Heavy Bombing in Manilla, Hvy Bombing China, much more activity in China
Brit MTBs torpedo a DMS, big deal

Singapore 3 allied planes shot up 12 jap planes, mostly Sallys damaged by flak i think. Singapore CAP situation is deteriorating fast.

Kuantuan we bomb and hit the port a few times getting some good hits on ships in port. AF hit pretty hard.

Exciting day, the USN launches a surprise carrier attack on Rabaul and Kavieng in an operation designed to destroy the BB Hiei which did a bombardment before the fall of Rabaul. While the operation was a success the BB had flown the coop so we did not bag this fine prize. Here is the estimated jap losses: CL sunk, CL crippled, 2x DD sunk, 3 AKs crippled or sunk, AV trashed. Given that KB and MKB are farrr away we can ensure that it will be very hard to push beyond Rabaul unless the Japs bring down some heavy support. Good job CV raider group.

KB above miri heading west towards Singapore, bombs Tarakan, Jesselton
