Just a drive-by "Go get 'em John".

October 3, 1944

During the night, the Americans attack Nagasaki with a total of 37 B-29. They are met by 31 Nicks and Irvings as well as augmented AA fire. Three AA units arrived yesterday and are set for this attack. Though the B-29s are stout and shot down several of the Night Fighters, a nice, BUNCH of them don't make it back home.

Only damage sustained is about 2,000 Fires and 6 Manpower Hits.

Am noticing that every night raid targets something different: manpower, resources, and nothing more vital. No complaining whatsoever presently on this score!

October 3, 1944

The Japanese Tanker convoys are not seen in either AM or PM phases. There is no eastward Air Search from the Philippines and, evidently, the Carriers/BB/CA/CLs are not flying Search either. Curious. The TF near Babeldoap is picked up from the south but nothing else is seen. We need one more day and then the Tankers are within good LR CAP coverage. Just to the west, two divisions of Kido Butai move up from Tarakan and they will add another 300 Fighters.

Maximum vulnerability will be tomorrow. Already know that 1/3 of my Fast TKs have an excellent shot of getting to Java. It is the remaining 2/3 that pose the question and the concern.

Have already ordered the slow TKs to return to the Marianas and then begin their trek to the DEI.

The Allied Colossus moves NW six hexes. It is not, repeat not, an Invasion Force meant for the Marianas. Why he doesn't CUT my ability to move down here is beyond me. Course he sees the war won with the next invasion which should allow him to move fighters into sweeping range of Kyushu. We'll work to prevent that. With the slow speed of his TF movement, I have at least a week to maybe 10 days to finish moving troops to their destinations.

Here is the area:

Judging from, it seems he's after the Tankers Fleet, and they won't escape unfortunately, unless a sort of miracle.


INDOCHINA: now that Formosa unfortunately is over, would not be proper to recosider the main defensive line there, meaning, is that region still worth of fight and defense, or rather already unrelevant to war course?


You announced "gamble" and land offensive in south china: I understand your position, but how do you think to get any good result from the vary heavy carpet bombing awaiting you? Are you planning air ambushes as well against his air there?

be fine,

Adar


I have decided to begin a phased pullout of units from Saigon and CRB. We'll make the defensive line Haiphong and Hanoi...

We refuse to simply 'give' Saigon and CRB to the Allies but he will have to fight a little to grab them.

Ok, so he's escorting some big and important transports and cargoes. Not exactly good news . At least, we can try to exploit his constant misjudgement of the nature and importance of your oil convoys and extricate much from the Indies.

i hope you could have followed my advice and joined many good AKs to the tankers (with supply inbound), that's a nice added oil cargo.

Very well done against the B 29!!!

In second thought,regarding Indochina, actually the keeping of Saigon area may be necessary as long as you keep a free route to Indonesia, also to contest Rebel's naval supremacy in Southern China Sea.

Saigon itself is a much valuable harbor with good repair yards, too useful to Canoe to let him get them.

Also, from Saigon triangle he could effectively air bomb Malay, Singapur and Sumatra areas.


Also, Singapur by itself is such a valuable prize not to be conceded to Canoe.

Eager to see what are your plans for south China!

AMBUSH!

This hurts the Allied cause a bit over Karenko.

Talk about 'defensive indifference.' The Japanese TKs finally get spotted in the AM phase of October 4th. No reaction whatsoever.

Here is the planned move of next turn. WE enter into Mindanao's protective LRCAP as well as two CV Divisions of Kido Butai. I've detailed the planned movement and Fighter numbers on the screenshot.

There will be no pause with this Convoy TK-7. We'll arrive at Soerabaja, refuel, and immediately depart. Dan's planned next move will take at least 10-14 days to occur and that should be enough for a quick turnaround. Soerabaja currently has 250,000 Fuel and 140,000 Oil in it.

A small Tanker convoy carrying 90,000 Fuel is at Balikpapan. We shall run it out starting tomorrow if there is no Allied interference.

What was the ambush?


Listen, We read of a great number of fighters dispersed in many places, Mindano, Java, ok that's sensed if to escort the tankers TFs, or to extract the occasional EXCELLENT losses from the allies...

but, and it's only me...I'd be burning to concentrate them in one place possibly...probably South China... for a protracted fighting. Maybe even for a massive programmed possible onslaught on his carriers fleet. With Kami, the navy et all. But it's only me
