China: You're wish is my command, Cribbie. Map posted below. The orange arrow shows the route traversed by the IJA division that took the base two hexes behind Changsha. I think that division is isolated (except by air) until John reopens an LOC. There are other problem areas for both sides. I need to open a hexside into Nanning (not critical yet, because my army is fairly strong). My major concern remains Siangtan and Hengyang. If John can bump through either hex, then I truly have a hole in my MLR. At the moment, though, and subject to my rolling up my sleeves and getting to work, I still feel good about China.
Oz: Quiet, with one CV TF showing at Port Headland. For all I know, the others could be headed through the Torres Strait to strike again around Sydney or Melbourne. I've configured my pickets and patrols, so hopefully no big surprises. Unloading continues at Melbourne. In about three days, my combat ships will depart, probably in company with my carriers, as the reinforcements will have all reached port. My carriers are SW of Tasmania, but I want to move them to a new theater until the situation clarifies. I've begun transferring the carrier fighter squadrons from Perth/Kalgoorlie back to Melbourne in preparation for the move back to the flattops. Several more reinforcement convoys en route from Tahiti to Melbourne, carrying some engineers, base forces, and a decent motorized brigade.
India: Waiting for the enemy at Port Blair, while also contemplating what John might do afterwards. A Brit brigade just reinforced Ceylon. I will throw everything into the defense of this island and the Chittagong region since I have so much air power in India now. John will take Port Blair, but everything thereafter is to be contested.
Pacific: Noumea finally has a base force to handle patrol aircraft, so that particular hole in the patrol screen has been closed.
