The Japanese Carrier Fleet will be regathered at Pt Hedlund tomorrow. Am waiting on a bit more fuel and the finish of the Java Campaign. I shall then use the FULL Kaigun to Sweep around Perth and land 2.5 ID in the South to begin the work of taking western Australia. If the American CVs are present or in the area, I would welcome a major fight.

Corunna Downs will be Lvl-2 AF and fly about 100 Transports that will be used to capture Kalgoorlie with the SNLF Assault Para Brigade. A back-up Brigade waits there to fly in as ground reinforcements once the Paras have done their job. North of Geraldton sits two SNLF Assault Brigades and an IJA Brigade ready to advance down and invest the city there. These are the major forces in the Western Australia Operation.

Am home for a few minutes and noticed that I hadn't mentioned the most important development of last turn. When my Zeros swept into Perth they were greeted by 31 F4F Wildkittens! Wow! Looks like I pulled back CarDiv5 just in the nick of time. This development was quite welcome and the Zeros did rather well. I am going to act like I am 'stung' from the development and then bring the ENTIRE carrier fleet down to SWEEP those Kittens from the sky, crush the AF, and sink any ships in Port. It will be beautiful!

In a rather sad development, my AOs that were traveling behind CarDiv5 wandered a bit too close to Perth and suffered an attack by A-24s. I lost an AO (which truly SUCKS!) for the error.

These two developments lead me to WANT to bring the CVs down because I should be able to crush any bomber component at Perth as well as the Fighters. This is an excellent opportunity to kill off a bunch of US Planes, pilots, and get Dan's attention. Whether the planes (F4Fs) are from Marine or Navy squadrons makes no difference. These are his best planes and pilots. It shall be as "one touch on a an armored sleeve."

At the command of Vc Adm Yamaguchi Tamon, the Kaigun weighs anchor. CarDiv1 (2 CV and a CVL), CarDiv2 (2CV and a CVL), CarDiv3 (2 CV and a CVL), and the 2 CVLs and 2 CVEs of KB along with 58 escorts depart their temporary haven at Pt Hedlund. Just enough fuel has been loaded to bring the Capital Ships to full load. On the 13 flight decks carry an impressive 656 aircraft. The sole objective of this short mission is wiping out EVERY plane at Perth, smashing the AF, and destroying every ship in its harbor. It is to be a demonstration of Japanese concentrated firepower. Shock and AWE might be an excellent description...

An interesting development. It makes me wonder how your opponent is actually viewing the situation. Is he misreading it? Will it be "awe" like in fear, or more like in "outch"?

Poor Chokai, a mine casualty that early on -- that s*cks. You also have lost quite a number of destroyers by now, but at least you made them count. That's probably the more important thing. This game is going a lot tougher than the other one. BtW, is the latter "done"?

Hey Janh. I thought we were finished but Lew just sent me a turn. Plan on running it right after this.

As to the Shock and Awe factor, I have no idea as to how Dan will see it. Just want to destroy those planes and hit the shipping present in the harbor. Should serve as a warning I hope.

Just totalled the aircraft on the CVs: 300 Zero, 173 Val, and 186 Kate.

Changsha - With the Chinese having so few engineers, I would consider leaving just the Lily or Sally on AF attacks and switch the others over to ground attacks to increase the disruption levels of his troops if you plan another deliberate attack relatively soon.

He has moved in 3-4 Base Forces and 3 AA units. The air over Changsha is...rather...active. I keep waiting for other airfields to open so his fighters can move in there but am constrained to think about his limits due to supply and lack of Chinese BF. Am sort of expecting some Allied BF to appear sometime...

He must be eating up his supply at a fearsome rate. In 3-4 hexes a turn he bombards and periodically launches attacks. My AF hits are chewing into supply as well. Must be thin to say the least. How does one take serious advantage of that? Will his units simply fold if out of supply?

An important observation for the last two turns comes in the form of NO FLAK over Kweilin or Liuchow.

You are correct. IT is worrisome. Have lost a lot of planes to flak over Singers and then Clark. He has executed several admirable CAP Traps recently accounting for nearly 80 planes. Have strong hopes for success in doing some serious sweeping at Perth. The same could be said within China now that he is heavily committed with the P-40 Wing and Hurricane Wing present.

Well...the last turn sums up my experience with this campaign.

KB moves into strike position on the morning of April 5, 1942 and is socked in by weather. The same is said for Carnavon. I have two full Daitai of Zeros (54) set to Sweep Perth from there and all three CVLs Zeros (93) also set. Vals and Kates are set for Naval Attack THEN Port Strike/Airfield Attack. The weather disrupts these carefully crafted plans. Afternoon comes around and NONE OF THE SWEEPS FLY AT ALL. A total of 147 Zero sit on the sidelines doing nothing.

In comes a massive strike 62 Zero, 121 Val, and 133 Kates. They are met by--GET THIS--84 F4F and 20 P-40s. He has transferred EVERY Fighter from 4 CVs to Perth. The Zeros desperately try to keep the bombers protected and FAIL terribly. Down go 18 Zero, 19 Val, 14 Kate. The fun keeps developing as a second strike comes in of 12 Zero, 50 Val, and 45 Kate vs roughly 50 Fighters. Down goes MOST of the strike!

It is/was horrific to watch.

Losses for the Day: 27 Zero, 57 Val, and 45 Kate. Pilots: KIA 70, WIA 6, and Missing 44.

Don't even want to talk about.



Add to this my opponent is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO hyper-sensitive about comment made in email banter between turns. He launched 4 separate attacks in China that netted nothing. I commented that "I guess trees work BOTH ways." He took offense to it. After I watched the horror described above I sent the turn with a terse "Fine. I will never talk about ANYTHING in the campaign."

CRAP!

Going to church and repent...

Well, some people like to wait until Christmas morning to open their presents. It's only polite not to drop hints.

I was just so damned angry with the last turn I wanted to spit nails. The sheer number of bad rolls it took for that aerial disaster to happen boggles the mind.

Got the next turn in the box but don't even want to open it. pws is right. Have gotten spoiled on Lew and I's game where nearly every move I made was GOLDEN whereas every move made here has been LEAD.

On the bright side I did get some serious work done in the Caboose today. Let me pull up a picture and I shall Post it.

Here is the newest shot of our family caboose. Windows have now been installed and Union Pacific has given us two old Switchers from the Rail Yard here in town. Those guys have been such a help to us with donating the ties and two pieces of track. They make a pass or two every week watching for progress.

Our next step is to finish re-installing the stove and chimney (with Pipe to go on the outside roof). I plan to run the wire next week from our new garage to the fuze box of the caboose. We'll then see what circuits still work and start the re-wiring process...

Ouch. The probably cause of that is the weather was too bad for anything to fly but there is a fudge factor or something in the calculations that means strikes from carriers will pretty much always fly if it is even remotely possible. Obviously it is there to prevent things like carriers getting wiped out without launching back but it is a nightmare to deal with when using CV against land targets.

As you have learned it seems to not effect sweep missions. I had the same thing happen to me on a day 2 pearl harbor strike once.

The war does have to go on...

April 6, 1942

The massed Kaigun retires towards Port Hedlund. Will cut the pair of CVEs off of the Fleet and send them home. Need to re-size about 6 units up there where they will also gain a sister in about 30 Days. Junyo will travel with them and form-up with her sister--Hiyo--to form a small Striking Force that will be used in the North. Two CV and 3 CVE are not much but since--obviously--his CVs are in Australian waters they should not have too much to fear.

Akutan, Cold Bay, and Dutch Harbor each have only 1 or 2 units in them. Akutan has a Marine Regiment and Cold Bay has 34th Inf Reg present. A full Infantry Division and Brigade are on their way to the Aleutians to tackle these dangling units. NE Fleet (a Command HQ in this Game) is moving up to Umnak to provide support for the eventual landings.

At Singapore two full strength Infantry Divisions, their Army HQ (25th Army) and an Engineering Regiment begin loading for Port Blair. Southern Army HQ is now sitting fat and pretty at Sabang so the Assault units will gain the added bonus of the Command HQ.

The last base in all of Java--Batavia--is attacked by 3 Inf Div seeing a 1-1 and Forts drop to 1. A Shock Attack is ordered for the 7th to finish resistance here.

China is frustrating Dan and I am enjoying that. I feels like this is the one area where I am really annoying him! I have slipped a Division through his Main Line of Defense and am driving into the Rear of the Chinese Defenses. Will make an attempt to grab one of his rear cities on the plains where Airpower and my Paras can help. He will cutoff this ID from the rear but we'll see if the Changsha Defensive Line can hold. Changsha itself gains the 59th ID this day and a Deliberate Attack is ordered to see if there is a realistic chance to dislodge the troops there. Just want to keep pushing and see if the dam collapses. Every attack he has ordered since April 1st has met with a 1-2 or worse result. Supply MUST be critical right now for him.


Apologize for the whining over the last few entries but I am crazy frustrated and mad over that Perth disaster. Losing a bunch of CV Aircraft in a CV Battle is one thing but to lose so many for no result when weather, bad rolls, and terrible luck have to ALL occur for the disaster to occur is mighty frustrating. Will curtain the tears and move forward...

Here is the current map of China with the developing actions there:

1. BLACK: The battle around Changsha continues to grow. Dan is trying to finally move troops into the hex by the lake where I have been funneling troops. The 15th, 39th, and 59th ID now invest Changsha along with 2 Engineering Regiments. Reinforcements continue to flow into the area with 3 Brigades, 2 Art, and 3 Engineer units moving that direction presently. The China Command HQ is moving to the area to provide its support. Something big is gonna give here by May 1st. Feel that the issue will break open for one side or the other by that date.

2. RED: The 36th ID penetrates the line and is moving on Shaoyang. When the unit is two days away I shall order ALL China bombers to paste the single unit holding the town. Paras will be tasked to land the turn the Infantry enters the base to trigger a Shock Attack. For some reason there is no sign of troops moving to reinforce the town. If units to enter it, I may change direction and drive NW to the city just 3 hexes away where there is also only 1 unit and he cannot reinforce quickly due to the roads.

3. PINK: Having taken Nanning, the 22nd ID holds off three Chinese Corps trying to retake it. They have taken significant casualties. The 17th ID is moving to drive these troops out while 3 TK, 3 Art, and 1 Engineer unit close from their own directions. IF we can drive the troops from Nanning ten we can FINALLY begin to roll-up the Chinese Line.


Planning
1. I need more troops and in something very a-typical for me, I am about to buyout an ID from Manchuria for Southern Army that will first move into China to help with the fight there.

2. Am pulling another ID from Loyang to augment the attacks. Cannot do more then that for fears of the Northern Offensive by the Chinese.

3. Have considerable air support leaving Japan (9th Air Fleet, an Air Flotilla, large Base Force, and two smaller Base Forces to move into the Southern China towns just south of the battle so I can bring my airpower even closer to the lines.

Dan and I had planned on getting our normal 3-4 turns in this day but fate--in the form of WORK --intervened. Ended up helping do repairs to three of our company Subway's and it took over 8 hours when I was told to expect about one hour plus commute of 45 minutes. CRAP! Nice paycheck for the work but not what I planned on doing whatsoever. Not right to work 8 hours on your day OFF.

Here is a shot of the Changsha Attack last turn. The attack barely missed a 1-1 result. Things look promising at the moment.

John the Caboose looks really cool. I have asked my wife for one but expect to wait long and hard for an answer. What are your long term plans for it? Will it be on display or will you use it as an office or something. Personally, I think it would be the perfect gaming room for hosting board gaming days with your friends....

April 9, 1942

Shaoyang is plastered by nearly 200 bombers causing over 700 Chinese casualties tot he 70th Corps. A group of 60 Transports then drop 1000 paratroopers into the city. The result is a shockingly pleasant 70-1 Attack!

Over 100 Transports immediately begin ferrying in 2 Base Forces and Supplies for the inevitable counterattack.

There is now movement all along the Chinese Line. There is now opportunity to attack elsewhere. Will Post a Screenshot of that in a minute.

Paula and I are restoring it to circa 1975. The outside work is nearly complete. My Father-In-Law is work on the stove pipe today and then we'll reconnect it later in the week. Once that is accomplished then:

1. Set-Up the stove for heat.
2. Hardwire the Caboose to my Garage and rewire what needs to be done.
3. Begin restoration of the interior.

We plan to re-open it for the public during La Salle Days weekend in mid-July. It used to be the town's caboose so we intend to allow people to do guided walk-throughs and take family pictures. We would never charge for this, however, we'll accept donations to help defray costs.

The 'boose will be used as a play area for my sons, sleepover location for them and their friends, and as a guest apartment for people staying over. Like....I don't know...MICHAEL! Paula and I shall use it for an office and we plan to have the occasional meal out there too...

If we end up buying the old school house we've been negotiating for then it will move permanently to that 3.5 acre plot and be part of our business there.

Here is the current picture of the situation:

1. Troops continue to funnel in towards Changsha.
2. Japanese airpower shall strike the hex with the x in it for the next two days in an effort to disrupt the single Chinese Corps present. The Japanese ID located there will then Shock Attack to clear the hex and begin the roll-up of the flank (I hope). Three units will cross the river to the east of that location and dislodge the single Chinese unit present there.

Dan is moving units pretty fast after the fall of Shaoyang. These two attack wouldn't be possible if not for his moving of troops out of those hexes weakening them.

3. Nanning is about to be cleared of the enemy as a 2nd ID, 2 TK Reg, and 3 Art units move into the base over the next 2-3 days.

4. Shaoyang has roughly 50 Transports flying in supplies. Two Base Forces have already been fully moved there. The rest of the Raiding Para Regiment is flying in presently. An Inf Reg from Shanghai is now being transported in by 54 Tina. Should be somewhat secure in about 2 days.

John - Looks like the die rolls are starting to come back your way. About time! And the caboose is really taking shape. Nice work.

Regards, Paul

Big events for next round:

1. Port Blair Invasion occurs.
2. Will launch an Attack trying to clear a hex on Dan's Right Flank in China.
3. Hope to finish Batavia (last of Java resistance).
4. Forgot to mention a two Division attack at Nanning aims to clear that hex of Chinese troops.

Order the 18th ID in Singers to move to Canton and reinforce the China Attack.

The Japanese troops arrive at Tennant Creek to find a large number of WEAK Australian and American troops. Plan to attack pretty quickly here as well.
