Hey Guys!!!

I have the honor of taking on a WITPAE veteran who has come back after Hiatus. Some of you know njp72 from some AAR's. He has played Dennishe, Crackaces and others.

What could possibly go wrong??

We will be playing Scenario 1 DBB-B with stacking limits.

The HR's are

PP's paid for restricted units crossing national borders.
Fighters fly no higher than their 2mvr band.

Fog of war on
PDU off
Realistic R&D on
Reliable Torps off
No unit w/d off
Auto sub ops off
All facilities expand off
Auto upgrade off
Accept replacement off
Variable reinforcement +- 15 days

Those were the choices that njp72 wanted and I happily agreed.

I expect a lively game and will have to play at a higher level if I want to make a good showing of this game.

So go ahead and climb aboard, strap in and keep your hands and feet inside the ride while it is moving!!

Suggestions are welcome as this is going to be a real learning experience.

I think you need to discuss your second house rule. Look at your aircraft stats in the
new DBB and you will see that you will be at a real disadvantage.

I've seen postings along those lines as well Ezra. The DBB scenarios don't seem to need that restriction or the all pervasive 4E restriction in terms of altitude and attacks. but of course each to his/her own!

I was ready to take my opponent on in Scenario 2 but he was smart enough to step it down to Scenario 1 so I would at least have a chance. If he sees that the HR gives him too much of an advantage I am sure it will come up eventually.

It is just a game afterall :]

December 7, 1941

Allied Bases Captured

Batan Island


Ok, I got the first combat turn and viewed it.

Pretty average. I did not lose any BB's initially but we have heavy fires/heavy damage on some of course. POW and Repulse each took multiple torpedoes. Since it was a historical turn everything else was cookie cutter. The AF took 100 hits. I am not sure if that means 100 damage but he could likely stick around for another swipe at me. Depending on STF status I might want to try to strike out at him just in case.

Ok, in his game against Dennishe, njp72 defeated Russia. He has no fear of taking on India either apparently. Based on just a brief look at his exploits I should be expecting anything.

I believe that my focus of Defense should be Australia, Kodiak and surrounding area and Pearl Harbor. In India I should try not to get surrounded, routed and destroyed.

I want to put a lot of planning into the defense of China, Java, and Sumatra.

Ok, I sat up and read some AAR's involving my opponent last night.

WHAT WAS I THINKING????

WHY DO I ALWAYS PICK THIS GUY?????

You know the axiom that you dont have to do everything the first turn? NOT TRUE!!!

I think the reason he took me on was I asked him to teach me some humility ;P He promises to be brutal. I dont doubt it.

What I have learned about NJP... He likes to invade India and doesnt have trouble putting Bombay under siege in February of 42. He typically ignores the Philippines initially and comes back around for it.

If I manage to survive through January of 1943 then I might have a chance but the real game is going to be the first year.

We have stacking limits in game so it seems like Fortress Bombay/Calcutta/Sydney is in order here. I also need to make Diego Garcia not worth taking and move American units to Capetown quickly to prepare to put pressure on him. I need to keep my Carrier TF's split into 2-4 axis to keep him moving and I will absolutely need to put pressure on him where the KB is not.

Having the reinforcement variability really makes a difference in this game as it could be make or break in india.

Everything needs to move like clockwork for this not to be a complete disaster. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO IT!! (not the disaster part :P)

Ok, it appears that there was a significant synch bug in the first turn.

The POW and Repulse were not damaged nearly as badly as it appeared and the BB Oklahoma was sunk in harbor.

The Airfield was trashed and I have almost no working bombers although plenty damaged ones. I really couldnt put up any significant cap. I spent 12 hours working on the 1st turn commands and missed that the BB Oklahoma was sunk.

So, I was going on the assumption that it was a pretty disappointing turn for my opponent.

I had some capable heavy and light cruisers and plenty of destroyers so I decided that to try and protect my battleship fleet and punish him if he hung around I would launch a couple of assaults. It worked better than I had feared but worse than I had hoped. I got into several slugfests with his carriers but did not severely damage any. He did have a reduced attack on day 2 after the encounters. And my battleships were protected from further damage although it appears he was not going for a day 2 assault. He knows I am not going down without a fight now... And that he had better protect his keyboard during replays ;]

I also sent a couple of destroyers near Hong Kong for a visit to Takao which turned out pretty good. I managed to sink a destroyer and severely damage several other ships in the process. It makes losing the bulk of the merchant fleet at Manila and Hong Kong slightly less painful.

CA New Orleans



I expected that the japanese fleet would limp on home. I was wrong. NJP decided to detach a ST and give me a little payback. For some reason the Japanese navy seems to have a great combat advantage early in the war and he had my range set perfectly...

Lost a heavy cruiser and a destroyer and am likely to lose a few more ships before it is over.

In typical NJP fashion there is no activity on Luzon at this time. Lots of ships are being sighted west of Singapore and moving SW toward the Ambon area.

Nice opportunity score on KB! It doesn't look like any danger of opponent losing any of the damaged carriers but 50-75% of them will need a little time in shipyard. This may significantly dampen his propensity to head straight west to India that you speak of. If he does head west he will likely only go with 2 CVs. This doesn't provide enough for quick and overwelming destruction of all Brti/Dutch airpower...at least if Allied airpower is harnassed and dispersed wisely.

New Orleans and company may have bought you a little breather!!

I LOST ALL MY BATTLESHIPS!!! But then I found them in my sock drawer. *whew*...

NJP continues to use the gamey tactic of putting holes in all the wrong places in my merchant fleet.

His heavy cruiser is still limping away from pearl at a very slow speed. My sub fleet is nipping at his heels. He also has other ships that are not moving very fast including a light cruiser. That force is going to get away. His carrier fleet is moving toward the southwest. I am guessing he is still looking for my carriers and/or any straggling shipping. That is not going to happen. There is a good chance he may be delaying for invasion of wake too. It doesnt really matter as he is still sporting almost 100 fighters and hundreds of bombers and I got nothin to face off against that right now. The cat/mouse game begins.

He appears to be following the same tactics of previous games but it is 3 days in so duh... Look for him to take all the relevant bases with airfields and quickly put up air cover/air search/air attack.

I have thrown together some troops for Christmas island.

The current plan is to ignore the pacific if he is going to for the first few months of the war. I have quite a few transports heading to CT from both the Indian continent and also the west coast. I do not plan on sending significant supply to Australia from the west coast. This might turn out to be a strategic mistake later. The good news is that the game is more forgiving for the allies and I get plenty of ships along the west coast to make up for any deficit I create. Especially since I wont be getting the protected convoy sunk.

I am debating whether to defend forward to Dutch Harbor or pull the troops back to Kodiak until I have sufficient forces in the area. At the moment there really is not enough to make a forward movement past Dutch Harbor. The only downside to abandoning it is that if I dont take it by May 42 the command unit that comes as reinforcements goes where? I might try to get some sort of forward fuel station for some raids inside his territory but that will have to wait for a while.

One of the issues I am facing is that it is a similar scenario to the ones I have played before but set at a higher level. With DBB there are less ships, less cargo capacity, less support units, things start damaged, things start in different places, lots of the combat is different. The whole game just feels different. I need to re-adjust my expectations as there is no way 3 divisions are landing at PM in may of 42 in this game.

Bombay has already filled out nicely with 400+AV and 85K supply. Calcutta is not anywhere near that but over 200AV and 50K supply. I am not sure where all the extra AV comes from in some of these games. Alot of units are damaged and I guess that is part of it.

Madras gets a nice unit in 54 days. So in addition to fortifying both Calcutta and Bombay I would like to try to hold Madras long enough to get that unit. One of you is going to be able to tell me what happens to these units if the Japanese hold the bases and that will factor into my defense strategy.

Syndey already has the 1st australian division digging in.

I really want to send the 18th Division to Diego Garcia to make it not worth taking. I am 99% convinced of doing that right now. I will be sending many American units through CT into the Indian theater and I absolutely cannot afford to lose that vital base.

I am also setting up house at Cocos Islands. Just another little detail for him to worry about.

This is where I could see him getting to. 2/3 of India conquered with possibly Calcutta being surrounded surrendered. Perth taken. Combat along the east coast down to Brisbane or farther. Occupation of Suva and all islands west and maybe Pago Pago. I dont think he will try for much farther west but there is no telling. The farther he goes the better it is for me unless he achieves an AV.

What I expect is a slightly more moderated game which in the long run will turn out to be much harder for me to win. However, any given turn can change the odds....

Allied Bases Lost

Singkawang, Kuching

Japanese Ships Lost

DD Satsuki (to a MTB bwahahahahahahahaha)


The Japanese Captured both Singkawang and Kuching. He has landed an air flotilla on Singkawang effectively ending any further evacuations from the Singapore area. I think I am going to lose most of a british air HQ that was not quick enough in loading at Singapore.

Forces are approaching Ambon which will fall quickly and I am guessing he moves toward Java. The Luzon area seems unmolested as expected.

I have over 250AV in Calcutta and over 500AV in Bombay. Madras is also reinforcing.

The thundering herd is moving towards Canervon. I have 4 surface task forces operating in the seas north of Australia trying to find openings to create further chaos. If I can distract him for a day or two it could save many ships. I am also loading troops from Koepang and Pamekassan for evacuation and I hope to get them all aboard and safely away.

He is making an appearance off of new guinea. I have a heavy cruiser going to make a raid to see if it can stir up his forces. This is a diversion as I have transports loading all the troops at Rabaul for evacuation. Also, I am about 1 day out from getting an evacuation fleet to Port Moresby. I am going to pull all the troops I can from these locations and put them on the continent of Australia. Horn island is also a target. The less units he gets to kill outright the lower his overall score. An AV is not out of the picture for NJP.

Sorry, no sexy pictures this time!

NJP continues to solidify his hold on the Singkawang area. Air searches are now frequent in that part of the map. He has a small carrier force west of Ambon. Troops are amphibious landing on Ambon.

I have 4 surface task forces in the region and I expect some battles this coming turn. Hopefully I put a few more dings in his fleet.

Burma and Indochina are very quiet. There is some movement in China but mostly in the plains and not elsewhere. I expect that Palembang will be the next major target for the Japanese.

Other places are just waiting and building. I need to work on Russia one of these turns as NJP has proven he can attack and defeat them.

Allied Bases Captured

Hong Kong, Boela, Shortlands

Allied Warships Sunk

DD Pillsbury, DD Pope

Japanese Warships Sunk

CVE Taiyo??




Tokyo Rose said that the Japanese sunk a battleship, 2 carriers, and numerous cruisers and destroyers but what does she know??

This was an exciting turn for the Allies.

CA Louisville danced in the moonlight with a Japanese surface task force each trading a few blows.

The CVE Taiyo takes a torpedo near Obi (near Ambon) and is reported sunk but my opponent was talking about hoping the pumps did not fail so.... I am not sure. Those CVE's are pretty fragile though...

One of my light cruiser fleets tangled with one of his and got the upper hand setting the CL Kiso on fire. The CL Boise took 4 hits in return.

A pair of his destroyers caught up with 6 light cargo ships near Balikpapan and wasted a ridiculous amount of ammunition sinking 5 of them outright.

The pillsbury was beaten into dough and the pope was de-popeified by a couple japanese heavy cruisers and escorts. Yuk yuk yuk...

Allied Bases Captured

Tulagi, Brunei

Allied Ships sunk

DD Evertsen


It was a quieter turn this time. Most of the thundering herd is southwest of Bima now stretching all the way to Perth. NJP picks off a few stragglers at the back end.

Somehow, due to a miracle and the sacrifice of the CA Louisville the troop transports at Port Moresby managed to get past the 4 CA's and DD's headed to the base. I am not sure they will make it but they have a good chance now. CA Louisville takes 7 hits and is on fire for her troubles.

Horn island is evacuated. The troops on the other bases in New Guinea are moving toward Terapo and PM but likely will never get a chance to make it to Australia. We shall see though. Depends on NJP's vectors although I am almost certain that PM will fall shortly.

He is already landing unopposed on Java.

The good news... There is over 560AV in Calcutta and more on the way. Madras is up to almost 200AV and Bombay is 500+ All the engineers available are working on forts in these 3 key locations.

I have also decided to completely evacuate Rangoon, Moulemain, and Columbo. He is not putting pressure on the first two but the partisan activities will damage the port and airfield facilities and that is actually to my advantage.

Units are already debarking Columbo but I will delay the destruction until I can strip the fuel and supplies from the island. I am not giving NJP a pile of victory points along with a refuel and resupply just before turning the corner on India headed for Bombay.

Cocos island is forming up nicely and the POW will be reaching there shortly along with other refugees. The base has about 45 AV plus some engineers and will be getting at least another 50AV. It is not enough to stop a determined Japanese attack but it will require the diversion of ships and LCU's to take it out. Usually the Japanese lose part or all of a small LCU finding this out.

Things continue to go as well as can be expected considering the current Allied position.

Kalidjati, Sambas


One of his DD task forces plays whack a mole with one of my HDML groups near Merak with predictable results. One of my DD's finds one of his transport TF's near Ambon but I think more damage was done by a collision of Japanese vessels than the one shell I managed to land.

I lose a few more port vessels near Batavia. He caught 1 of three transport groups from Horn Island and Port Moresby and proceeded to kill it. His 4 CA fleet was divided into 3 or 4 individual groups to try to find my CA out there and probably pick off these fleets. I lost nearly 650 troops into the ocean. He is pressing hard and I am not sure if either of the other 2 are going to make it. I have re-diverted them to Sydney.

Alor Star, Beaufort, Ternate, Port Blair

Well, NJP said things were going to accelerate. This turn there is a fighter sweep over port blair and I figure I have a couple of days to get the fighters off. By the end of the turn my cargo ships are handing supplies over to the new owners of Port Blair...

DD Thanet was badly damaged in the first battles of the war but managed to limp into Manila harbor and is now in fighting shape again. Going to send her out on a raid and see if I can cause some issues. Luzon is still untouched by any japanese forces. Forces have started moving in Malaya. Java is under assault.

Allied Bases Captured

Kendari, Merak

Allied Ships Sunk

DD Pint Hein

Japanese Ships Sunk

DD Asagumo

One of my light cruiser task forces at the end of the thudering herd comes into contact with a Japanese DD force. One destroyer is sunk on each side with 1 more taking significant damage. I think the ship evacuation is winding down. As of today I have lost 96 ships to the Japanese. Considering the volume of territory that NPJ has covered already I think that isnt too bad at this point.

My ships sunk score does not yet reflect that CVE so it might still live.

An armor unit just arrived for transport to CT. Convoys are forming up slowly but once in place will provide an endless supply of food and fuel to Cape Town.

Lots of moving pieces on the map, some I wont get into due to OPSEC, some I wont get into cause it is boring.

Allied Bases Captured

Cheribon, Nanyang


Quiet day in the DEI other than my useless sub attacks and his almost useless ASW retorts. I am extremely happy with the number of sub contacts I am generating but that is pretty easy at this time as I know exactly where his fleets are going. I suspect that shortly it will be much harder to get so much quality time. Unfortunately the torpedoes arent going to start working till 43 so I am not sure what else to do at this point but pray for good rolls.

There is no telling what direction NJP is going to take. I am sure within a few days to a week or so I will have better info. If he backs down that long then he is done as far as AV though. He is going to have to push it to the wall to achieve it and at this point it is probably not possible given the scenario plus stacking limits. If this was scenario 2 I am not sure that I could prevail even if prepared. Forts are headed for 3 at all major cities with good supply and engineers. Not as quickly as I had hoped but this is DBB, not stock so it is the best I can do.

Columbo only has an infantry regiment left that is not completely restricted. The AA Unit and Base Force were bought out and transported to Bombay for assisting in fort building there. It still has about 25K supply and 30K fuel which I want to evacuate along with the troops. Air sweeps happen over Rangoon. Hopefully he starts bombing the airfields. I could use the help in demolishing the place.

Almost all the divisions that can be assembled in India have been. One regiment in Karachi is waiting to be substituted by another force for garrison requirements before moving to Calcutta to form the last division available at this time.

Burma has been a disaster in terms of evacuation as I simply put the troops on move and they really havent. I guess it doesnt matter as they cannot possibly get to Calcutta before a significant event if NJP wants it to happen. They will eventually get to Akyab or Imphal and move from there. I doubt there is 150AV in the 8 or so units I am talking about. The regiment that starts in Rangoon was evacuated to Calcutta on day 4 or so by sea.

My opponent just complimented me on China. I am moving backwards prudently as he advances. He holds the central plains now. China is tough because you dont want to give up too much but you cannot really hold it anyway. I have created a pocket at Wenchow(?) the one that creates supply and is such a thorn in the Japanese side.

I am going to show the status of some areas of the map at this time.

I appologize for my pathetic map skills. I am using Microsoft Image Composer Version 500BC. I need something that makes putting arrows and other items in the pictures easy.

Anyway, from my childlike drawing you can see that the 11th & 12th Indian Mixed Brigades have been having their way with my troops by kicking their butts across the river and now into some rough terrain. I am pulling my troops closer to Changsha and evacuating the Kuokong pocket.

Meanwhile the 20th & 21st chineese Corps have been following the brigades and have shut off their retreat. If he pushes any farther he risks losing both those units.

Near Wenchow I have approximately 1200AV that is going to make a last stand there. No pressure on them yet.

Once he makes a serious push in the Changsha direction I am prepared to pull the troops back rather than risk encirclement.

The MTB or PT boats from Hong Kong that attacked formosa have shown up at Wenchow with 20systems damage. Will see if they can be of any use in the future.

NE China

It looks like NJP might cut some units off in the plains but I have managed to get 1200AV on the road NW of Nanyang and will have over 1000 AV on the dirt road to the west of it. The problem with China is alway the route to Sian and how it is not very defendable relative to other areas.

The plan here is to collapse backwards toward sian and prepare to defend behind that as necessary. Fight on the wooded or wooded/rough hexes and try to stay away from being surrounded.

Palembang Area

He has a bunch of ships massing southwest of Palembang. He has made no attempt to enter Palembang harbor to this point. I have a bunch of crap surface ships in there and I managed to mine the mouth of the river. Maybe he is waiting for some mine sweepers. I am not sure but Palembang remains mine for the time being.

He invaded Java at Kalidjati and took it unopposed but when he moved all his forces southeast the base reverted to Allied control. LOL!! TAKE THAT JAPAN!!! One of those little gotcha moments.

He then took out Merak the next turn or so. I am hoping that he solidifies his position right about now. Otherwise I have a feeling he is getting ready for a quick strike on India. My aggressive naval actions might also have him acting with caution at this point as he does not really have the Java area well covered by air search yet. Either way it doesnt matter, I have conceded the area to him.

Cocos island has 95AV on it and is building. I dont think it has been detected in any way.

The 18th Division is unloading at Diego Garcia.

The Malaya/Sumatra area is almost completely quiet. There is some combat up near Alor Star but otherwise nothing.

I have seen NJP pull a Mersing on Jan 18th of another game. Hopefully if he tries that here the 180AV I have now at Mersing will give him some trouble.

There is about 600 AV in Singapore with another 100 on the way up north with a couple of units. They cant arrive within a week so who knows if they will ever help.

I evacuated/disbanded all air forces because I wanted to save on supplies. I did this for the Phillipines as well.

He would have quickly swept them to death anyway.

NW Australia

The thundering herd continues it's journey to safety. The bulk of the ships have reached the coast of Australia and are proceeding to Perth. Ships with good endurance are taking off for capetown. Ships with about 4K endurance are heading for eastern Australia. Ships with crap endurance are being scattered on the south side of Australia in various ports. He will still be able to kill them but he is going to have to work really hard for it.

If NJP wants Perth there is little I can do to stop him. I have the bulk of my forces defending the Sydney and Melbourne areas and am willing to sacrifice Perth for time. However, he isnt going to get many ships with the deal.

North of Australia

NJP has secured the island of ceram and Timor will fall quickly as the troops at Koepang have been evacuated.

I expect this area to be locked down shortly. The only question is how fast is he going to invade Darwin.

I have evacuated all troops from Darwin and am marching them south. I could not even get any supply to them in time so that was diverted to Suva and the troops were ordered to march because if he uses armor I would never be able to outrun him once he catches me.

The plan for Northern Australia is to give him free reign and see how far he wants to take it. There may be some opportunities later. The farther he expands the more vulnerable he is so I am not in a hurry to stop him.

Allied Bases Captured

Namlea, Lautem, Jesselton, Pontianak, Pingsiang


Another consolidation turn. I think a couple small ships are giving him fits near oosthaven. He cannot get his amphibious task forces to unload due to the threat.

It is going to get quiet for the next week at least unless NJP decides to make another bold move.

One of my subs got beat up pretty badly near Ambon. I dont think it will make townsville.
