The bombings at Bombay continue, which is actually a good thing for me. My Indian divisions need some experience and the best way to get it is through bombardments (which are causing more distruption to him than to me).
I really think he won't be able to conquer Bombay. With Stacking limits Bombay has room only for 160,000 men and he already has 120,000 there... he can possibly get to 3,500/4,000 AVs...which, however, won't be enough.

Things look far less ugly than expected

In China we may have stabilized the situation, even though the supply level still looks horrible.
After the sudden retreats caused by the latest beta, we're now downgrading to the "K" version...and i hope i can statle mate him.
I'm still holding the North so a bit of fuel is still flowing to Chungking and Sian.
the real dangers are around Chikkiang, but i'm creating a series of line of defence that i hope can hold him long enough to help me save the situation in India

Da leggere con voce enfatica e nasale: "Capomanipolo GJ-Barbagli, il fante italiano non si perde d'animo di fronte ad un nemico superiore in mezzi, ma getta il cuore oltre all'ostacolo"

it's referred to GJ avatar picture (it's one of the best italian comedians, in a tv-series joking about fascist propaganda)
traslation:
to be read with empahtic and nasal voice: "squad-leader GJ-Barbagli, italian infantryman doesn't loose his temper in front of a superior armed enemy, but he throwns his heart behind the obstacle"

AHAHAHAHAHAH Well said MrBlizzard!

No, i won't lose my temper!...in fact, actually, i'm ready to counterattack!

May 22 1942

The allies have accomplished something great today. 4 Allied Divisions managed to exit Soocodra channell in a 150 ship mega cargo, escorted by 3 American CVs and a strong SAG. Tomorrow we'll be unloading at Karachi. Many more units need to be taken out of Aden, but now i think i can do it. With the arrival of this Indian Corp (3 experienced 1943 squad divisions plus a strong armoured division) we'll try to counterattack on his flank and set Bombay free. He now may be in trouble.

The KB should be somewhere west of Sumatra, possibly trying to ambush my convoys at Diego. I've so ordered everybody at Diego to get away and move to Cape Town (Diego has already 320,000 supplies...more than enough

The RN has another great secret task to accomplish... and the IJN CVEs are supporting the invasion (late!) of Timor... i have a british TF composed of 3 CVs and 1 CVL... may think about it...

The other 2 US CVs are supporting a convoy at Noumea. bringing in 60,000 supplies and a regiment of the Americal ID (so to recombine it). Then they'll move back to PH in order to join with the upcoming WASP and to support some more operations in the pacific.

Have i ever told you how good is to play the allies???

While the 1st AUS Corp (1st Aus Division and the Americal Division, plus some support troops) is unloading at Noumea, fighting against 5/6 enemy's subs (we sunk the I-159 today), covered by 2 US CVs and by a strong SAG (3 Brookling Class CLs and 8 DDs), the XII Indian Corp is unloading at Karachi unmolested.
The japs are Landing at Dili (Timor) and i'm really thinking about ambushing it with the unseen RN CVs... but i have yet to decide...some fuel issues here and i have to be carefull...

The KB should be near Sebang but i cannot be 100% positive... no finally an AVD has arrived at Cocos and so 12 Catalinas have immediately transfered there...i need some eyes... hope to spot the KB

At Bombay the Tojos arrived and scored 3 kills, losing 2 for ops losses...nothing major

From the man who a while back mentioned he 'was never going back' after playing a game as Japan!

Yes, you have mentioned this and I am really itching to play the good guys soon.

Sounds like you have things in hand. With stacking limits it's really hard to make these big moves like India stick. You obviously have some experience there though and you're using it well, making sure you have options well planed in advance. I also think if your units don't do the retreats you've been seeing you have a very good defensive position there, and you haven't lost Sian. That's major. Those rough areas around Chikhiang will be tough to break through.

Looking forward to the rout of the overextended IJA soon.

You know what? Japan is great to be played and it gives you great rewarns when you win a CV battle for example or you can give a bloody nose to the bad guys... but, as you know, playing Japan is REALLY stressfull... and sometimes playing the allies is really like a glass of fresh water in the desert... lots of supplies, unlimited fuel, lots of room to commit mistakes and to risk something bold... you're gonna love it!

Yes SL is a MUST imho... and i can tell you that the reduced cargo capabilities is cool too! Even for the allies it's impossible to move HUGE armadas and supplies in a single moves

I probably haven't told you about Horn Island. I've managed to evacuate Rabaul, PM, Darwin and the Whole NG garrisons during the first 2 months. The Japs have been slow here so i managed to recombine the AUS division at Horn Is. Moved there a couple of AA units, 2 Eng units, base forces and some artillery. Now i have 25,000 men behind 5 forts with 30,000 supplies...PM his japanese but with Horn Island in my hands i can threaten the way to Mereuake and to the Western NG (just like Brad did against me)

Having India is great for Japan...but if you don't conquer China (so freeing up lots of Divisions to be used for garrisoning), then that HUGE Empire cannot be really defended. Simply too few units and too many bases

Also, if you have an HR about paying for unit to move from restricted commands, even conquering China will not free all of those divisions. I still have a massive army there I would have liked to remove more of, but the PPs are just not there to do it. It's good for balance, as the Japanese should have to keep some things in China.

If the KB is staying in the Indian Ocean then I think you need to go for the Gilbert and Marshall Islands. You don't have to worry nearly as much about Betties as you would in the DEI so it makes it a low hanging fruit, especially if you can get bombers running out of Tabiteau. A campaign there angled west would really threaten his positions in Fiji and eventually make them untenable. And lastly, its quite some distance from India making his response time very slow.

Yep, a bit scary in India. Bold and aggressive on his behalf but it binds him to India until it is taken. That means you will have opportunity elsewhere. He is overextended and sooner or later it will catch him.

I don't know if the extra captured fuel is that much of a bonus for him. His ships are burning up a lot in his operations, so I don't think it will effect the strategic balance too much. Keep your cool, keep your carriers and you will win. You know the drill....

May 24, 1942

The enemy is failing in gaining the air superiority over Bombay. The Tojos are achieving just a 1-1 kill ratio and the battles aren't bloody enough in order to drain my pools at any sufficient level.
The KB is finally spotted: COLOMBO! So he's probably bringing everything to the Bombay party. Naval bombardments and KB sweep.
The Force Z and the American CVs will get back in the shades. We have at least 2/3 days in advance in order to clear the indian waters. The XII Indian Corp is now fully unloaded at Karachi and the 70th British Division already left the town by rail and is estabilishing the advanced positions from where to start the counterattack.
No more ground bombings by the Japs in the last 3 days...he may be waiting for the BBs to come in in order to suppress my artillery before resuming them.
The RN is remaining in the shades, waiting for a chance...

Meanwhile a strong enemy SAG is spotted in the Gilberts, while our two southern CVs (York and Hornet) are still close to Noumea, ready to move to Pago Pago.

More air units are unloading at Karachi as we speak (American bomber units - B-25s and B-26s).

At Calcutta we've finally managed to put togheder and recombine the 17th Indian Division, which will bring the AV up to 1800 (with 6 forts).

How much time for a counterattack in India?
Well, hard to say. At first we need to see what will he do with Bombay. He hasn't committed his full force yet. We have to see how the KB and the Yamato's group (4BBs+4CAs) will perform there. Secondly we need more units, especially minor ones. In India every potential counterattack needs to consolidate the supply lines first, and to do that you need a lot of garrisoning units (possibly at least battalion strong) in order to prevent any pesky para landing at your back.
The idea is to assemble an advancing army of 2000 AVs, composed of 4 Full Infantry Division and a Tank Division and to start advancing south from Karachi. I don't think the Japs can stand in clear terrain against this kind of forces (consider that we're talking about emergency reinforcement IDs, so equipped with 1943 tanks and squads). Another key factor will be the air superiority. I need to keep my Air Force alive in order to be able to do anything (need to cover my advancing units). That would be the hardest task...but I think it's doable.

The other, indirect, factor will be to keep high pressure on the other parts of the map. With the KB fully committed in India, the Pacific and the DEI should be undefended enough in order to let me gain local superiority even using small CVTFs

The land battle for Bombay has begun.
While the KB sprints from Colombo towards Scoodra, clearly trying to interdict my retreat to Cape Town, the enemy sends a series of big sweeps of Tojos over Bombay, achieving a good result (50 of my fighters for 18 of his own), and while the IJA divisions launched their first assault to my defences. 1-10 in terms of Odds, but forts are down to 5... I'm however still confident. This battle can be won IMHO.

In China we repulsed another enemy attack South of Chikkiang

My Infantry units are still in great shape. only the base forces suffered some distruption...nothing terrible. It's a long way in front of him to achieve anything close to 1-1

How many AA units do you have at Bombay and Karachi?? One of many lessons I've learned the hard way is to have plenty of these in your spearheads once they get to the limit and beyond of LRCAP (4 or more hexes away from a base). Were you able to get the big AA Bde from Colombo safely back to India??

His two attacks at Bombay gave his force 20% casualties. He will have to rest for a while or bring in fresh troops.
Do you have engineers enough to rebuild the fort level in a few days? Bullwinkle did that at Singapore and drove his opponent crazy for a long time!

I know Micheal. Calcutta and Bombay are filled with AA guns... at Karachi I don't have that many, but I think I can bring them in in the next months.
I got one big 72 guns AA regiment from Colombo...the rest was left there.

BBFanboy: I have more than 500 engineers at Bombay. I'll need 9 days to rebuild the forts up to 6.... think I can do it

May 27, 1942

The KB keeps on pushing NW (now west of Bombay) and the O20 (dutch sub) misses a shot at Shokaku
The Mini-KB is back near Java.

Our convoys finished their unloading and are now getting back into the Aden Channell...just in time. We've just delivered 4 divisions, 300k supplies and 150k fuel at Karachi...not bad.

35 Betties sortie from Suva and sink 10 transports near Pago (no air cover)... empty thanks God

50,000 supplies are unloading at Cocos Is. while we speak.

No air battles or land battles at Bombay today, with both opponents licking their wounds

Another 1-2 for the Japs in China

The KB is surely drinking up lots of fuel. She started at Truk, sprinted towards Java, refuelled and then sprinted again towards Colombo, refuelled and then towards Socodra.
Judging from the pace she's keeping, I guess not less than 2 of these sprints have been done on full speed mode. This means a lot, cause the KB can easily drink 100k supplies in a week when moved around a lot, especially with full speed run.
The good part is that this may have been done for nothing... the KB hasn't caught my CVs, nor my other SAG and didn't arrive in time to stop the arrival of the XII Indian Corp from Aden.
Those ships are fragile...man, I know it,...and full speed runs can easily end up in 5/10 sys dmg. Also the more I have the KB under control, the more I can move around in other areas.

I wanna keep the KB busy. Now I think she'll remain in India...for the time being at least... but she'll cast shadows... while the Americans are ready to counterattack on the other side of the ocean.

As soon as the KB will leave to get to the Pacific once again, the 3 American CVs will get back, escorting more 100,00 men to India.

As you know a Big convoy with supplies was unloading at Cocos...right under his eyes... i knew the KB was away and at Java he had the mini-KB and some warships... wanted to lure him into a trap...

The RN is waiting west of Cocos...hidden...no detection... on the 29th i saw his CVLs coming from Batavia...so i moved in my 3 RN CVs, supported by the Hermes and by some CA/CLs....

Now i'm waiting for the turn...thrilling....

May 31 1942

The ambush worked pretty well.

At night a CL TF intercepted the Japanese CVTF (2 Junyos + 1 CS and the Yamato!) but didn't manage to get close enough with the Yamato screening from 30,000 yards...
When the day arrived, the morning was hazy...and the japanese carriers managed to strike a couple of bombs on my CLs...without any real effetc... then, in the afternoon, the japanese attacked my RNCVs, while the weather got better.... our Martlets and SeaHurricanes did well and distruped the raid enough to prevent any bomb to fall on my CVs... then it was our turn... 52 torpedo bombers, escorted by 20 Fulmars... 4 torps on the Junyo, with 2 Ammo Storage explosions...and two more hits on the Yamato (hopefully enough to send her to the yards for a long time).

I think the Junyo is a gooner... now it's subs time...let's hope the can score some hits as the enemy retreats...

GOOD!

Over Bombay we did achieve a 1-1, Downing 40 Tojos...and keeping the skies open for another day.

In China two more victories....hope to hold the right flank of Chikkiang

Junyo is down, i'm shocked you didn't see her sink outright with that sort of damage.

Also taking Fulmars into battle... you're a brave man!

I am playing MrKane as the Japanese against his allies and he definitely is beating me ... I havent crashed the Japanese economy yet and I do have some things going for me. But its almost July 1942 and I am behind on the conquests by far. I do have the advantage of having caught him napping in Ceylon where I sank a carrier in port (game claims it was an American CV but I am pretty sure it was British) and I caught all of the British reinforcement battleships at sea with the KB but have no confirmation of them sinking (45 hits on one and no sinking stupid Val bombs) and I just got a US carrier for the loss of one of the mini KB light carriers.

He will forget to check some things (dont we all) but he does get turns around extremely fast. I feel like I am the slow one and we usually can get at minimum 2 turns a day.

Good luck GJ and I will be following this to try to get even more feel of his play style.
