On the 13th of October Operation Northen surprise surprised Kushiro at night. Although damage was minimal Japanese hq was stunned.

Transcription of conversation in the HQ October 14 at night(Downfall parodies on youtub:))
Supreme commander: Have the commander of air operations sunk the enemy that bombarded Kushiro yet?
General 1: Uhm, Sir…..
General 2: He claimed he had to few airplanes and couldn’t carry out an effective search or attack.
Silence for a long time
Supreme commander: Can everyone leave the room except commander of Tokyo defence(Hisdorf), admiral Krobs(commander of Northen defence fleet) and general Odl(Chief of staff)
Everyone leaves the room
Supreme commander: IT WAS AN ORDER, recon all over the place to find subs and if we were lucky find taskforces doing stuff like this. It was an order, not a request. WHO do he thinks he is to disobey an order? All you have lied to me, even the special ship squadrons. I am beginning to think that the generals we have left are the scum of the Japanese people and to coward to attack the Americans.
General Odl: Supreme commander, stop insulting our leaders, they are doing everything to stop the attacks
Supreme commander: Does it seem to work? Not a shred of honor. Stalin killed all bad generals, here they are given command and hopefully they do that themselves. What a monstrous betrayal of the Japanese people to have such commanders. Now we all will pay even more in our own blood. I am beginning to think the war is lost.
General Krobs: Its been over since we last Okinawa, remember. We still have lots of special forces remaining and they will take a heavy toll on the Americans when they land
Hisdorf: Sir, we have lost over 10,000 aiplanes in less than two months. Our food supply isn’t as good as it could be.

On Formossa Taichu is captured and the troops got a few days rest before they are moving on.

Northern surprise successful as above. BB taskforce sailing to meet AO taskforce and refuel before heading back to Pearl.

Force at Hong Kong ready to move north.
More small islands secure and airfields constructed.

Late October
XXIV corps recon has shown that Canton is the home of almost three times their numbers. Troops are ordered to wait outside the city for the heavy bombers to soften up the enemy. Reinforcements are embarking in Manilla in the form of the Americal division. Heavy bombers, mostly B-52 strike Canton and when the bombardment began 4 days ago there was 95-100 k troops in the city. Now there are around 70 000. Allied force outside city is 11,000 fighting troops and 20 000 rear area troops.

Joint UK/US allied force steaming for Indochina to take Saigon. UK troops will land to the west and US troops to the east of the city.

CV-fleet in the sea of Japan sail to close to Tokyo and for two days are attacked by lots of Japanese airplanes. Over 1000 is shot out of the sky, but some manage to penetrate the CAP and AA and score hits on CV, CVL and CVE. Task force now steaming back to Guam.

Formossa is almost secure, Japanese pushed back to two areas and the area will be fully American in early November.

Allies have trouble knowing what engineers can be used on new airfields and who that needs to remain were they are.

Score is currently major allied victory

I sent a convoy to give Takao on Formossa supplies. I sent the merchants alone and sent warships in other taskforces there. The warships had mind of their own and was sailing around in other places. Result? Japanese subs jumped the merchants and sunk almost the entire convoy. Two ships remain and they disbanded the task force and anchored.

Canton is ripe for conquest now. The forces around the town are now full and reinforced and they will now attack

Canton is taken. Now the question is where to go from here. March overland to Hangshow and then strike Shanghai from two directions, or send a force north to cut the communication lines between troops in Indochina and the rest of Japanese hold areas
Battle of Formossa ongoing.
Submarines were ordered into Japanese ports to sink ships. They sailed into mines.
Operation against Saigon began as a disaster with several ships sunk by kamikazes that went through the CAP.

Japan seems to get more mines to play with than the Allies, and has a lot more ships that can lay them. Any port that Japan has occupied for more than a day is likely to have some mines.

Most Japanese merchant ships do about 12 kts, or three hexes per phase. I usually park my subs three hexes from the port I am trying to interdict. You have a much better chance of making an attack if the enemy ships end the phase in the same hex rather than just passing through it.

You have to check what type of mine the subs can use, then go to the Intel screen and look at the troops/equipment pools for that type of mine. Also note the monthly production rate ...

Alll subs i look at can use mk 10 mines, that arent avalible. Its said that they are upgraded to mark 12. I turn on stockpiling and then they say ship already loaded with mines despite it having 0. If no stockpiling then there is no mines in the pool.

Date: 8th November 1945
Place: Manilla
Present: The entire general staff of the pacific
Macarthur: Gentlemen, thanks for coming. This is my plan to bring the Japs to their knees. I call it operation Meteor.
Lights are shut down and Mac turns on a projector.
“This is our target!” Everyone gasp, the target is one of the heaviest defended in Japan. Nagasaki.
“I know, the target seems to be a death trap. But our B-52s have done great work when overcoming Canton and Hong-Kong defenders. They have already been ordered to begin a bombardment.
Admiral Nimitz steps onto the stage
“I have already given general Macarthur approval to this. The forces on the west coast of the USA have begun making themselves ready”.
8th army second in command
“I was sent here just to ask one question. Is there enough transports for both the troops of the 8th army not yet in China and the West coast troops? Have we not lost a great deal of ships”
Macarthur smiles
“Yes, we have, but we have reported three times the numbers sunk as a deception. And I thought long and hard of this objective and if we shouldn’t secure China first. Unfortunally our Chinese connections have said that it would take the entire 8th army just to garrison the cities.”

Japanese intelligence agency
General in charge: So what is this new report you have?”
Chief of staff: “Our agents in Hawaii have sent a report that lots of troop ships have departed, but they seem to have gone empty. Another agent from China town in San Fransisco informs that there seems to have been some sort of mobilization among the troops in the area.”
General in charge: “Hmmm, do you have anything else?”
Chief of staff: Submarines are reporting that the Carrier forces are going back to their bases and recon shows a massive buildup in Manila.”
General: “This points to a large invasion, but were? I will take this to the supreme commander.”

Japanese armed forces hq.
Supreme Commander: “Thank you general for this briefing. The Americans are building quite a force. Where are they going?”

Second in command of forces in China: “My general believe they are going after Shanghai and then Corea.”
Head of command Nagasakiarea: “Nonsense, they lack the power to hold down the bandits in China and invade us at the same time. No general, they are coming for us. They have started bombarding Nagasaki with their heavy bombers, torpedo planes and medium bombers.

Supreme commander “You have all given me fine advice, I however think that Tokyo is the target and they will send in forces and land as close as possible. Nagasaki is just a hoax.

The invasion fleet is coming - 8/6/2013 12:03:29 PM

Late November 1945.
Supreme commander stood at the situation map as the reports came in. Submarines and recon airplanes sent report that a massive fleet was at the moment steaming towards them. The fleet was between Formossa and Okinawa and heading north west. Reports came in a trickle as many airplanes were shot down by the enemy CAP and the submarine screen.

“So, finally, they are coming to invade us. But were?” the commander asked the air. The only thing he did know was that Tokyo was not the target, this time.

“Alert all commands on Kyushu that the enemy is coming. Get the special forces ready.” The supreme commander gave the only command he could based on this information.

On the flagship of the invasion fleet destined for Nagasaki general Macarthur stood beside the captain of the ship.
“Sir, thank you for this honor of being among the first ships to attack the Japanese homeland.” The captain said to the general.

General Macarthur smiled and removed his cigarette “Well, its only fitting that Nevada, California, Tennessee and West Wirginia fire the first shots in the invasion.”

Onboard the wessels men who had served onboard the ships that fateful Sunday in December of 1941 felt that this was their moment of revenge. Ensign James Smith onboard California had been wounded when the first torpedo struck the ship. Rick Hunter, a Nevada farmer before the war and now stationed at one of the heavy guns had been wounded by shrapnel at Pearl Harbor.

The situation on the carriers were the same. Men who had been stationed at various airfields on Hawaii now was ready to drop bombs on the Japanese homeland. There were also men onboard the carriers that had been at Midway, Mariana Turkey shoot, and Okinawa and wanted to end the war.

Among the ground troops there were troops that had been through Overlord and said that this invasion dwarfed Overlord. There were men aboard who had been on Bataan and been lucky to escape, men who fought in the terror on Guadacanal and Tarawa and been wounded. The veterans knew what awaited them when they came ashore, the rookies were mostly afraid.

Reporters from every news organization in USA were present. First radioreport would go out as the first shots were fired at the mainland, because then the Japanese would know where to expect them and the need for secrecy was over.

Place: Nagasaki defence hq
Date: 27 november
Phone rings: “Calm down son, repeat please” said the watchofficer and put on the speakers
“There are hundreds of ships out there.” The voice said
“Son, the allies don’t have that many ships, were are they going?” The watchofficer asked
“Sir, they are coming straight at our position”

A few minutes later at Supreme command Tokyo
“So, Nagasaki was the target all along.” Supreme commander looked down at the report and sent out order. “All special forces to the invasion zone, ASAP”
Commander of special forces looked sad. “Sir, we haven’t that many planes left. The bombardment the last week has cost us much in airplanes and workable airstrips. But the Japanese pilots know to die. BANZAI!

Allied command ship.
From: General Macarthur
To: Washington DC
Regarding: Beachead secure. Opposition much less than expected. Nagasaki will fall soon

ABC radio: “This is a special broadcast from the beaches of Nagasaki. Today the allies have landed on Japanese territory. Hundreds of planes roar above us, you hear the guns of Nevada in the distance paying back for her ordeal at Pearl Harbor, again and again. All around us infantry, tanks, artillery and supplies are coming ashore. Enemy activity is lighter than expected. “

2 weeks later
The supreme commander had been summoned to the Emperor to give consultations. As soon as the supreme commander walked through the door he saw more guards than before and didn’t like the feeling.

Emperor: How are things going at the front?
He was more direct than usual
Supreme commander: The Americans are pinned down on the beaches and will soon be thrown into the sea. Our airforce…………….
Emperor raised a hand and silenced the supreme commander: “ENOUGH. Our airforce have all but ceased to exist, just as our navy and our mainland army.” He gave the supreme commander
“I asked the neutral embassies to give me the real picture of the war and here it is and the head of the secret service was just here and gave me more news. Almost no warships left, almost no fighters or bombers left, Nagasaki is lost and the Americans are breaking out of their beachhead inwards. Apperantly their forces on Formosa have begun training to secure Shanghai. Since their Chinese forces are closing in on Hanshow there is only a matter of time before Shanghai also is lost and then we cant supply our Chinese forces anymore. Their airforce is roaming the skies and interrupt any movement. And here is a secret that the minister of internal affairs haven’t told you, but told me a few days ago. Our rice harvest is a disaster. Japan will starve to death in a few months even if the Americans don’t come. “

The supreme commander: “Sir I have failed you, I must regain my honor”
The emperor: “Do as you wish, I have more present concerns”

One hour later the supreme commander had committed suicide and the emperor spoke for the first time to the Japanese people that the time had come to surrender. He spoke live from the palace and in the background bombs were heard falling far away.

Macarthur hq to Washington DC: Emperor of Japan have issued a proclamation that Japan should surrender
DC to Mac: Great work, now the rebuilding begins.


--------------------------------THE END------------------------

Authors note: I didnt play to the end, but in reality with Allies on the ground at Nagasaki and all outer minor islands next to Kuyshu captured plus that forces are near Hangshow and that my Formosaforce is soon to board ships for Shanghai and the fact that Japan have lost almost 1000 ships and 15000 airplanes they would have surrendered. Every turn i had to give orders for over an hour and sometimes i forgot about a CVE or two. I am thinking of playing another game like Sim City or World of Tanks for a while

Given the tweaks to the Allied OOB for this scenario, I am not too surprised at the collapse of resistance.
I thank you for an entertaining, if one-sided, AAR.
PS - do you have the specs for the Stealth Fighter and Stealth Bomber so I can use them in my games??
