Finally got something to report, although it's not good. Not only is the IJA landing at Brunai, but when I hit Miri again today, I lost 9 of 18 B-17s when I ran into a cloud of 30+ Zeroes. Although I only show two bombers downed here, I lost another 7 either on the flight back or on landing at Soerabaja, with three pilots killed or reported MIA. Miri is officially out of the question for now, unless I can neutralize those Zeros.


One thing I'd like to know though is what type of Carriers did those Zeros come from? Zuiho, Hosho and Ryujo are mentioned, but aren't those CVLs? If so, what do I make of this? Did he off-load his Zeros from those CVLs or are they close enough to help stop the raid? I'm thinking that there's a force of CVLs just North of Borneo, but I'm not sure and I don't have any CVs of my own in range to do anything about them. LBA are not going to work and even the dreaded 'Beests won't make it through a Zero CAP without a huge escort, which I can't provide due to the massive sweeps over Singers.






He will have a lot of LBA fighters, and that very could be what these are, or he could be LRCAPing that area with CV support...I wouldn't have any idea without being you and seeing it happen first hand. If Miri is a size 1 AF, then yes, he can have fighters there, but he wouldn't be able to fly any other type of mission from said AF.

I thought that as well, but I noticed in the details that the individual squadrons were listed and those three CV names were shown. It could be FoW, but I'm not taking any chances, so I have to assume that there's at least a CVL fleet North of Borneo.

While today was a decent day for my subs, with the Dutch SS KXVI sinking an AV near Kuching, on land it was more of the same. Heavy casualties at Ichang from a Shock attack I didn't order (WTF was that all about? I guess I need to review my orders a little closer) and heavy casualties at Cabanataun from a IJA shock attack. Hong Kong still holds out though, so there's a silver lining there.

And another turn flipped. This one has a silver lining as well, with Dutch SS O16 putting a TT into DD Nowaki. I'll take those results all day long. Other than that, it was more of the same. IJA ground and air forces using Allied forces as target practice.

I'll take my lumps, but I'm going to remember this when 1943 rolls around.

In other news, I've got VP squadrons all along the CenPac, SoPac and SWPac rim now. I moved VP-101 and VP-102 from the Phillipines to Australia, with one VP stationed in Brisbane and the other in Townsville. I realize that this leave Perth with just a single squadron of Hudsons to watch the approaches, but that can't be helped just yet. I'll strengthen that approach as more units arrive, especially the two Hudson units that I'm sending back to Oz from the DEI. I'll post one at Darwin and the other on the West Coast somewhere above Perth to give better coverge. I've also moved VP-51, VP-71, VP-72 and VP-91 into the area, setting up coverage at Noumea, Suva and Canton Island (2 VP units here). Combined with my other VP units at Midway, Pearl, Johnson and Christmas, I now can cover the entire area with search planes. More would be better, but this is a start.

Filling out the two Indian divisions will be problematic. You simply will lack enough squads early on when the could make a difference. You could buy them out but turn off replacements until you are sure you have the infantry squads to spare.

That was my thought as well, but I think I'll not buy them back out until I'm ready and able to rebuild them, as I will probably need those PP's elsewhere before then.




They only cost something like 10 PPs to buy.

Yes, but you could buy them out later too, when you plan to fill them out. That way the cadre doesn't eat.

I wasn't thinking about supply usage, but that's a good point too. I will just wait to buy them out until I have the units available to rebuild quickly.

And the first turn of the week is flipped. A few things to note today, most important in my mind is that Ryujo is confirmed to be near Jolo in the Celebes Sea. The Dutch SS KX got a line on her and sent four TT her way, only to miss with all four shots. I'd much rather see a hit or two, but just knowing where Ryujo is located is a good thing as well.

The Allied attacks at Ichang begin in earnest today, with a deliberate attack by eight Chinese Corps against three Divisions, a tank regiment and an armored car company. Losses are staggering, but we reduced the forts by one. Tomorrow we bombard while waiting for the arrival of three more corps, then we begin looking at additional deliberate attacks.

I could really use some help on the land war side of things, as I only understand the most basic of concepts behind how WitP:AE models land combat. Ichang is a perfect example of this, as I can attack in massive waves and get results, but I know that this isn't efficient and that's what I'm going to need in the Pacific campaigns. I really need to understand how to best use my LCUs instead of just throwing them against an opponent. Do any of you have any advice?

Ichang is a perfect example of this, as I can attack in massive waves and get results, but I know that this isn't efficient and that's what I'm going to need in the Pacific campaigns. I really need to understand how to best use my LCUs instead of just throwing them against an opponent. Do any of you have any advice?


You have to both somewhat understand the combat models, especially the phases of fire support and then actual combat, and how forts and supply and HQs play into these interactions, as well as dig into the nits and lice of the devices. You have to take the time to survey your LCUs' internals. A Chinese corps is NOTHING like a USMC division in capability, even if the Chinese unit has more men.

For example, here you are using Chinese mass wave attacks against forts and tanks. You are geting creamed. If you feed in more Chinese peasants they will get creamed too. Look in the Chinese corps detail. What is the anti-tank rating? Compare it to a British or US Army unit of comparable size. The Chinese get eaten alive by armor. Their only real defenses are favorable terrain, and not fighting tanks.

Forts need combat engineers to take down. Again, look inside your Chinese units. China is always thin on engineers. Later in the war you can suppliment their power in pure massed infantry with other nations' engineers (and arty, and armor), but in 1941 they're out on a limb alone. If you batter the Chinese against forts they will die by the hundreds of thousands and you'll give him China for very little cost.

IMO the key to Allied work in China has very little to do with the cities. Use the terrain. Use the rivers. Pick your fights very carefully. Don't lose Chungking. (Read up on Chinese free LCU replacement rules if you have not.)

But mostly, get into the details of your units and understand what they can and can't do.

Well, another day, another turn flipped.

Good news: I found two more IJN Battleships.

Bad news: I found two more IJN Battleships...with a convoy.

Nothing much to add beyond that, the beat goes on.

Another day flipped, although I think I've noticed something in my opponent's attacks. He seems to be having a problem with supply in China. I think, if I can keep the supply lines open in Burma, I may be able to stall the IJA in China, tying up a large number of LCUs that could be a problem elsewhere. Any thoughts on how to force the IJA to expend more supply in China than what they should? Bear in mind that I don't have an Air Force in China presently and probably won't have one there until '43 at the earliest, outside of perhaps some fighters and a handful of 2E bombers.

Good news! It's almost Christmas! Bad news! We're still getting pounded on by the IJA/IJN. Maybe Santa will bring us all kinds of new toys to fight back with.

So, let's look at China in detail. This is the Western border, as it now stands.




As you can see, there's not a lot of movement in Western China from the IJA, but I have a feeling that I'll be seeing that change soon due to a series of intel intercepts stating that the 16th and 24th Infantry Regiments are loaded on transports and headed for Cam Rahn Bay. The only reason I can see for this is to have access to the railheads which lead into Western China. I'm looking at how to reinforce this area now, but I'm coming up with more land to defend than troops to do so with.

Eastern China isn't much better.




As you can see, I'm still trying to get the last of the stragglers into some form of a MLR. Ichang is still the scene of heavy fighting and Chengchow is looking like it's going to heat up as well.

There's a bright spot to this trouble though. I found the Akagi, along with another two CVs and two CVLs. Granted, I can't do diddly squat about it right now, but I found them all the same.

Finally, I found this down in the Coral Sea. Again, my CVs are no where near this location, as they're at Pearl (Lex, Sara) and the West Coast (Ent) waiting to pick up Yorktown currently, but it's still good to know where your opponent is located.

And finally, there's Burma. I've got three Divisions in place (18th British, 1st Burma, 17th Indian), plus several independent Brigades and even some Armor and AA. What I don't have is Artillery. In the air, I've got the entire AVG at Rangoon, along with two squadrons of Buffalos in the outlying supporting bases to cover the docks. Mandalay is home to three squadrons of British 2E bombers and is currently being built up for the coming fight.

Interesting day today. I think I crippled a IJN SS and China is still holding on. The Burma build-up is proceeding as planned.

Oh, and I caught Akagi and Kaga with a SCTF centered around Boise, Marblehead and three British "D" class CLs. I only hit Kaga once, but the main reason for this seemingly suicidal play was to damage the escorting CAs and cause them, along with the DDs, to use up their TT, which is exactly what I did.

Now comes the fun part. Force Z, with Pow, Repulse, 2 British CA and several other modern British CLs and DDs, is only two hexes away from the Akagi/Kaga TF with orders to intercept. This should be good.

Where is the popcorn?

The Kates attacked with bombs. If they had used torpedoes it might have been different for force Z.

That actually played into my logic in attacking with Force Z here. If you'll look back, you'll see that Akagi and Kaga have been busy wasting their torpedoes on my fleeing merchant shipping. I figured that, since I've only seen two different CV strike packages in the reports, but have seen five different CVs represented in A2A reports, the CVLs had probably been stripped of their offensive units and were providing a heavy CAP so that the two primary strike forces could send their maximum number of Zeros with the attacking force. Given the pitiful skill of Allied bomber pilots at this point, combined with the Zero's superiority in the A2A role right now, a surface engagement made the most sense to me.

Now we'll see if it paid off. I just got the turn back and am getting ready to run it now.

Well that was interesting. Force Z was in a blocking position, just like I expected, but the Akagi/Kaga TF slipped past them anyway and is now on the Eastern side of Makassar. To complicate matters somewhat, an IJN TF containing two BBs and at least one CL just showed up in the Makassar Strait, 120 miles SE of Balikpapan.

Here's a map of the situation, as it stands.




Force Z is just North of Denpasar, in the same hex as the escort TF which is escorting De Ruter back to Soerabaja for repairs. I plan on feinting towards Akagi/Kaga today, to buy De Ruter time to dock and begin repairs, before falling back with Force Z as well. Akagi/Kaga will get away this time, but maybe I can hurt those two IJN BBs on the way back. I suspect that they're the Mutsu and Yamashiro, so PoW and Repulse should be able to handle them.

Again, a new turn flipped.

Clark Field fell today. I'd say the rest of the Phillipines garrison will fall within the next week to ten days, if that. Hong Kong still holds on though, but just barely.

I'm finally seeing movement across from Moulmein. Recon says that there's 6 units coming down the trail, but no more info than that. I've got one Division dug in at Moulmein, a second moving there today and will begin unpacking, plus three more Divisions with support units on the way within the week. I'm actually feeling pretty good about Burma right now.

Well that didn't go like I had planned. Evidently the order to "close and destroy" a target is ambigious enough that my Force Z commander didn't understand it. Furthermore, I found out that Akagi/Kaga weren't completely out of torpedoes, as they sent a few my way to my great displeasure. Fortunately for PoW, the one that hit her did literally 1 point of damage. The bombs which hit PoW and Repulse? No damage either.

So now I try to open the range and keep out of Akagi/Kaga's way for a bit.

Well, keeping out of the way was easier than what I thought, plus I got to eat a IJN convoy, sending at least one unit to a watery grave. Not sure what it was, but the fact that it was all non-combat squads makes me think it was an ENG unit of some sort.

There's more targets here, but we'll see what I find as I head further North into the Celebes Sea to try to make good on my escape.

Good job on catching the troops in those transports.

Every little bit here and there will annoy him, and help you keep your moral up till the middle of 42' when you can start doing more things.

I like your reasoning for going after the CVs with your SAG group...CVs tend to flee at the first sign of surface ships...he had to be ****ting himself when he saw his fleet CVs in a battle with your SAG... I know I would.

You mentioned not enough troops in China... pick and chose where and what to defend. Cities, mountains, and forests are the best. Position yourself behind a river in a forest, and that will lead to some nasty results for the attacker... you can't defend everywhere...but you can make him pay for ground if done properly.

Where are you rearming your BBs?

I was doing it at Singers, but that option is closed now so I'm looking at Soerabaja if possible. If not, I'll send them back to Colombo. I've got 10 BBs in the Pacific (8 at PH and 2 at Seattle under repair) but I don't have any in the IO.

Also, Tomasz seems to be running his BBs in packs, as I saw a SAG with at least 6 BBs in it while I was dueling with his CVTF and eating his troopships. Not sure if that's accurate or not, as I suspect some of those "BB" sightings may be CAs, but I can't take a chance of running into that many surface units and being shot to pieces. Force Z is acting as a miniature Fleet-in-Being right now and that's what I need to buy time.

Good job on catching the troops in those transports.

Every little bit here and there will annoy him, and help you keep your moral up till the middle of 42' when you can start doing more things.

I like your reasoning for going after the CVs with your SAG group...CVs tend to flee at the first sign of surface ships...he had to be ****ting himself when he saw his fleet CVs in a battle with your SAG... I know I would.

You mentioned not enough troops in China... pick and chose where and what to defend. Cities, mountains, and forests are the best. Position yourself behind a river in a forest, and that will lead to some nasty results for the attacker... you can't defend everywhere...but you can make him pay for ground if done properly.



I'm pretty sure he did just that, as I had been hiding Force Z and all the other Allied CLs for several turns at Soerabaja. I had absolutely no DL on my ships when I sailed into the Makassar Strait. He said later that he was having a hard time keeping tabs on Force Z, who has been successful in raiding two different convoys so far, so I think I may be able to increase his worry considerably if I continue this course.

As for China, I think I'm in trouble at Ichang. I can't disengage without losing a large number of troops (around 50k) and I don't know if I can win where I'm at now. I hold the road leading into Ichang from the SE, which is his supply line, so there's a chance I could whittle his supplies down to where I could break out without much of a fight. I'm bombing his troops now to try to accomplish this, but the CAF isn't exactly known for coordination. They call them "Chinese Fire Drills" for a reason, after all.

Elsewhere in China, I'm still holding on for now but I realize that I need to fall back at best speed to a better defensive line. Any tips on how to do this when I've got IJA armor units near by?
