I just cant get enough....

Going to play a DBB-C scenario game against Dr. Hal with him being the allies. His goal of this game is to take it past the typical ending point in mid 42 to early 43. My goal for this game is to understand the Japanese side of things.

Fog of war ON
Allied Damage ON
PDU ON
Historical First Turn Off
December 7th Surprise On
Reliable US Torps Off
Realistic R&D On
No Unit Withdrawls Off
Reinforcements +- 15 for both
Turn Cycle 1

And that's the way it is. We both understand the limitations of the scenario and that I might not be able to put up a proper defense long term but the Japanese managed it so we shall see. Besides, how fast is he going to move once I sink all his carriers?? :P

My initial expansion will be modeled after my opponent NJP as it is fast and efficient. Once I have Palembang and control the islands of Ceram and Timor I will see what other objectives I want to achieve.

I want the expansion to mirror the amphibious assault bonus so what I havent taken by April will likely not get taken. Considering in the other game I am playing with NJP he is already conquering india

After that I have to conserve my fuel and forces to frustrate his advance. I plan on using counter attacks and specifically focusing on his shipping. If I can take out enough of it the balance might be tipped in my favor for a while.

I will be keeping an AAR but considering I have 2 games running it will have to take 2nd place and we will see how updated I can keep both of them.

Suggestions are welcome, I am a complete newb at the Japanese side although I know how to break stuff so we should be all good right??

My own suggestions, bought at a considerable cost.

- Mass your best fighters (Oscars, Zeros) to clear out early Allied strongholds (Clark AF, Singapore and Java).
- Either use the KB for something worthwhile, or don't use it at all.
- Learn to love the Japanese auxillary ships. You don't have the Allied luxury of plenty of engineers. Want ASW bases forward in the DEI? Send a AG to Miri or Tarakan and shift some of the useless subchasers down there. Want a decent naval base near the frontlines? Send an AKE and a AO. Air search? An AV. The best thing about the Japanese auxillaries is that you can convert plenty of them and once the Allies start getting near your operations, they can sail away. Big ports and AF's can't do that.
- You've got lots of IJA recon units. Don't have any sitting idle. If they're not taking a look at what the Allies are up to, they can search for ships.
- Create a industrial sized pilot training program in the Home Islands and Manchuko, you need a great many combat ready pilots to fill your frontline units to capacity.

I will be sending over the first turn tomorrow morning.

Any suggestions for non-historical turn 1 would be helpful!

YMMV.....

Spies on Hawaii have confirmed that all known US carriers are currently at sea and the planned strategic strike to cripple the US pacific Fleet will not materialize. Instead, War plan B will be implemented.

1. Already strong forces reserved for the PI/DEI/JAVA/SUMATRA will be augmented by a majority of the KB (less Kaga and Akagi) to advance the time line in this theater. Alpha strike against the US - Manilla based Far East Fleet will be conducted with support of LBA based in Formosa.

2. The Air and Naval forces of the Empire of Japan will be used to isolate, fix and pin US and Commonwealth forces by striking deep to establish LBA coverage well forward into the SRA. (Ambon, Manado, Kendari, Makassar, Singkawang, Kuantan, *Mersing (*Land in strength no later than 10/17), Palembang, Denpasar, Koepang)

3. Zero (including KB elite groups)and Oscar fighter groups must be used in mass to quickly atrit allied fighter groups, establish local air dominance and secure approach vectors for other LBA assets to bomb allied ground forces into submission.

4. Detachment of Kaga and Akagi to initially support Central Pacific Operations. (Wake, Marshalls, Solomons, etc.). Serve as a temporary Fleet in being to be seen and heard in the area. Can quickly support a move on the Aleutians if desired.

The first turn is in the tank...

I need help to do my aircraft upgrades/path planning. I really cannot handle yet another aspect of this war from scratch.

PDU is ON, REALISTIC R&D IS ON.

I started setting up convoys. Did a manila port attack to begin the game. Many of the amphib assaults are stock. Just like every JFB my eyes are getting big for too much territory.

This is going to be a roller coaster...

Here is an outline R&D plan as a start for adapting to your own plans.

You have 77 R&D factories. Change them to size 30 (except for 2 that start bigger).

5 B6N1 but consider having them move to B6N2 as soon as they are fixed.
7 A6M2-N that convert to research A6M5 when fixed, 2 enter production and the rest complete the A6M line
Pick Ki-83 or Ki-94-II and assign 6 to that
Pick N1K or J2M and assign 6 to that
7 to Ki-44 that convert to Ki-44-IIa when fixed, 2 enter production and 5 change to work on Ki-44-IIc
1 on Ki-45 KA1a, stop this repairing when 1 short and roll into production. This is just to produce them as soon as possible.
8 Ki-84a can either research that or skip that and change to Ki-84r immediately they are fixed
3 Dinah Night Fighter
3 Irving Night Fighter
4 B7A2
5 D4Y1 when fixed research which ever of the line you prefer
2 Randy Night Fighter
3 Ki-94-1a that research the Ki-94-11a

That is 60 so you have 17 left. You could add a few more to some of the above or pick from amongst the Ki-43, Ki-61 (but to research the Ki-100), Toka, Ki-115, Ki-74-I, Ki-67, Ki-67-1a(T), A7M2, J7W1, P1Y1, H8K1 (actually H8K2) - all of these have some merit, or spread them around to advance each a little.

If you expand all of these to 30 at start, plus expand vehicle production a bit, fix all the research engine factories to 30 and expand production engines you will find that supply in the home isles gets very low and you should not plan on shipping much out before April at the earliest. If you plan on a tempo that needs more supply then don't expand all the R&D factories at start to size 30.

Then work out your engine demands based upon expected R&D demands and plane production.

To get a rough idea when a model will be available. If "N" is the months left before the first model in line is available and "M" to the model you plan on research and you have "X" factories and expect to have engine bonus. Then the expected months before availability is, roughly:

(M + 0.4NX) / (1 + 0.6X)

E.g. for the Jill N = 15, M = 22 if X = 5 that gives 13 so would expect the B6N2 available about 43/1.

RE: B6N1 - don't bother building this plane. It uses a unique engine. Move straight to the B6N2 R&D - it will save you engines, and therefore HI, as well as having the B6N2 arrive earlier. Don't research the B6N2a - the only difference is radar, and that doesn't activate until the historical availability date of the plane (11/44 in the device availability).

I would consider investing even more in the A6M2-N line (maybe 10 factories). Even if you go this route, you won't have an upgrade for your A6M2 groups until at least June of '42, and since the A6M2 factories can't upgrade to M5, you don't want to build them up... It also means A6M5c and possibly A6M8 way earlier, as you can allow 2-3 factories to convert to production and continue R&D with 7-8.

I like Ki-83.

I R&D both Jack and George, but I only invest 3-4 factories in each. I produce the first and second Jack mdoels and the second version of George.

Get some night fighters - pick one.

People seem split on the Dinah III to replace the Babs as an Army Recon plane. It is twice the cost, but it's also much faster and better.

I'm not sure the B7A is worth it. Maybe. I'm trying it out this time.

I would put more than 5 in the D4Y line.

I would add 6 additional Frank factories, beyond the one that starts 0(55), as the size 55 will convert to production and you can leave the other 6 on R&D.


I would also consider just leaving a lot of the factories alone. Is this a Scenario 1 base? Do your refineries produce Supply in DBB-C? Leaving a lot of factories alone and being very sparing in your aircraft R&D will save you buckets and buckets of supply. If your refineries don't produce Supply, I would consider just R&Ding maybe 6-8 models in total. Zero, Judy, Jill, Jack or George, Frank, Ki-100, and 1-2 bombers per service. Skip the rest. Remember that passing on the R&D doesn't mean you can't produce the plane, just that it will arrive as historical.

I do not believe refineries produce in DBB-C.

Both of those sets of instructions made my head spin. Remember I have never played the Japanese side...

I am not trying to reach the finish line faster so it would be better for me to hoard supply and produce planes at a slightly later date. Should I upgrade all factories to 30 eventually regardless of my R&D plans?

If you want the model to advance and have it available before its historical date, I would expand them to 30, yes. It is the optimal size.

For other models that you know you will want to produce, it might be a good time to get a conservative estimate of what you want your production numbers for that model to be, and increase factory size accordingly. For example, you should start with a Ki-84a factory that is 0 (55). If you want to produce, say, 75 Ki-84a Franks per month, you might consider adding a second factory and making it size 0 (20). That way you've already spent the supply to expand to your eventual production numbers, and you might get enough R&D points along the way to advance it by a month or two.

Give it time, you'll digest it all eventually .

December 7, 1941

Allied Bases Captured

Batan Island


I decided to go with an alternate beginning and attacked Manila with the KB. Managed to sink quite a few subs. I wonder how this is going to affect carrier activity in the pacific ocean. Hal has a little more free reign knowing my carriers are not close to his.

I screwed up the replacement of the AO convoy and lost some pretty important ships. Put it down to inexperience.

Welcome to the dark side! R&D suggestions are all good. Someone mentioned converting ships - this is important to get going early as they take some time and later you may have damaged ships clogging your repair yards anyway. If nothing else, be sure to get some of the big AKEs. Also, look for some big AG's that can convet in mid-42 to big AKEs. Big is good for AKE because the size of the AKE cargo capacity determines what size shells and other ordinance it can reload. Park a big AKE just about anywhere and you can reload all the cruisers main guns and maybe even the 14" BB guns, if I recall.

In the first page or two of my AAR we had some discussions about ship conversions, so feel free to look there for some ideas.

Also, no supply from refineries so be sure to watch supply! Even forts, port and AF build can really add up if you are just expanding every base you take.

Good luck!!

Good Strike on Manilla. I can't remember exactly how many US subs start there, but between 20 and thirty I think so you have that going for you. Use more of the KB zeros to sweep the cap over manilla and clark and send in the bombers to clean up the damaged ships and keep the airfields out of commission. No reason to have 58 Zeroes on escort this early in game. Have at least two of the KB zero groups sweep manila at dif alts, plus the big groups from Formosa to hit both Clark and Manilla (say one at 20k feet and a seconf an 18k feet). Then rope-a-dope the PI until forces can be freed up to put on the pressure. Maybe sweep and attack clark and manilla one more day with KB before heading out to begin sweeps of Singapore to lock it down. Be careful with the KB in the DEI as the Dutch subs have working torps. Be sure to have some kates or vals on ASW search and have plenty of DD's with your carriers. If you can get one of your CS cruisers with the KB to provide ASW search that woould work as well.

Have to run off now, so forgive lack of editing on this post. Good luck!

Ok, I would like to go over some of the things I have learned to make sure they are correct and I understand why I am doing what I am doing.

The Japanese start with 77 R&D factories of varying sizes researching almost 77 different planes. These factories are mostly damaged at the start of the game. A factory can change the type of plane it is doing R&D for but it causes the factory to be damaged or "re-tooled" which costs supplies. Therefore, it is efficient to change the planes R&D at the first turn.

The most efficient factory size is 30 and so to get the optimal you would set all to 30 to obtain 2310 points of R&D. However, this will use an enormous amount of supply and could be an issue in a DBB-C scenario. Alternatively the R&D factories can be left alone or added on a bit now and grown later as numerically it does not matter if you go from 1-30 in one swing or step up to say 20 then 25 and eventually 30 when supplies are available. Each time an R&D factory is repairing or re-tooling it will not produce any R&D Points.

Because PDU is on it might be advantageous to limit the number of different planes I produce to save in R&D, Engines & Production.

Lokasenna suggests I limit R&D to about 8 planes which would give me almost 10 R&D factories per plane type. That sounds like it may be the way I want to go.

So when you say leave them alone, do you mean let the R&D factories research what they are originally set to or change the R&D to a plane I want to accelerate but do not increase the size of the factory?

Also, when you say build another factory do you mean expand an existing production factory or is there an actual command to build a new one? Or do you mean set an R&D factory to an existing plane and change over to production?

As far as how many planes I will need, I would say... ALL of them!! I have no idea what my eventual plane demand might be. This is like having a instruction book on a car that tells you how to accelerate, brake and shift gears with a manual transmission. Doing it and getting a feel for it and an understanding of how it all works together will take some time ;] I just dont want to crash the car or run out of gas before that happens.

A couple quick answers -

It is best to set them to 30 asap. The probability of successful repair increases as the size of the R&D factory increases. Besides, the supply cost comes from the repair much more so than the actual expansion to size 30.

When you 'leave them alone' you could set them to not repair at all and that will save even more supply.

You can't create new factories, only change them around.

Hi,

GL with your game.

If you are using the latest version of DBB-C, then I believe refineries will produce
supplies EXCEPT at Palembang.

That is correct - in the latest version, refineries do produce supply. I think JWE/Symon just moved the refineries out of Palembang or something like that. There is a thread in the scenario section about the changes in the most recent version. Those changes we not long ago - maybe just a couple months back I think.

The reason size 30 is suggested is because above size 30 an R&D factory produces no more than at size 30 (until it reaches size 300 !). Below size 30, on average, a factory's efficiency is pro-rata to the size of the factory; a size 15 factory will take as long to repair as a size 30 factory and then produce half as much R&D having used half the supplies (but with greater randomness both for repair time and R&D progress). The recommendation to expand to size 30 is to maximise R&D effectiveness assuming the limiting factor is number of factories and not of supply. This is also the reason for increasing them early.

There are (at least) two strategies to R&D.

You can concentrate everything on a few models, get them early, then change the excess factories (over what you want to produce) to work on something else. This gets models early but costs a lot of supply. In theory, because the better models are available earlier you take fewer losses so that saves supply.

Or, you can look at all the models you plan to produce and assign just enough factories to cover the expected production (read AARs to get an idea what this is). So if you expect to produce 60 Frances when they are available assign two size 30 factories to work on the P1Y1. You start with one for that and another for the P1Y2. You could leave the P1Y2 alone but to change it to the P1Y1 will cost only about 300 supply and will advance the availability of the aircraft. If you think you will only need 45 then go for a combination of factories such as 1 size 15 and the other 30.

With the second strategy, the aim is to avoid paying the cost of damaging repaired factories (by changing between lines) and having to repair them again. All your factory expansion is directed at increasing production with the beneficial side-effect of the R&D benefit.

Note that, on average, a single size 30 factory (with engine bonus) assigned to an aircraft that is 9 months away will advance it by a month (17 months away by 2 months).

There is an upper bound on how many planes you need that comes from the number of pilots you have and an estimate of the ratio of planes lost to pilots lost. I use an estimate of 2:1. In 43 you will be getting about 150 IJN and 185 IJA pilots per month so you can see there should be no point in producing more than 300 IJN and 370 IJA aircraft per month. Whether you can use that many aircraft will depend upon how aggressive you plan to be.

Ok, I should clarify what I meant by only researching 6-8 planes or so. However it sounds like you won't be as short on supply as I thought when I wrote that previous post.

I didn't mean to devote 7.7 size 30 factories each to 10 models. I meant pick out some models you really want to R&D and only change 4-6 factories to size 30 for those types, meaning you would incur only about 120,000-180,000 supply cost per plane you R&D'd. Before doing so, pick other planes that have R&D factories that you aren't trying to accelerate, but would like to produce later (and they have no current production factory that will upgrade to them - like the Helen, Nick, Myrt, Tsurugi if you want it as a kami, etc.) and leave those R&D factories alone for now - they can convert to production factories later, saving you a small amount of supply. You can bump them up to what you think your actual production numbers will be (say 25 for Ki-45 Nick) and just leave it. You might get enough R&D points that the model advances a month or two, or you might not, but if so it's just a bonus as you aren't going for the R&D on that model.


And as others have said, make your R&D factories size 30 from day 1.


I would like to see somebody do no R&D in a game sometime and see how much more supply they have than others.

I was hopelessly lost due to the fact that I do not understand what each plane does, etc. There was a very good tutorial on the internet that someone linked to and I followed their plan. Essentially it appears I turned off about 17 research facilities, accelerated the rest to 30 and increased some production and engine factories. Changed some factories around to focus on certain planes.

Hopefully when I get the next turn back I can use tracker (which I dont know how to do) to help me with the rest of my planning. Yes, Kamakazi's will be desired and I want lots of them. But that is years away in real life and in game time.

The 2nd turn is sent to HAL so we shall see what we shall see... maybe in a couple days.

Still clumsily bumping around in the ocean. Hope I dont lose the KB to an iceberg or something...


I need help to figure out what engines I need and other tweaks to the industry. I have tracker up and running so if someone would be kind enough to tell me the relevant pages I should print in this AAR so they can help that would be appreciated.

So many numbers making my head spin right now...

KB near Iba? Interesting. So no PH strike, then. I think you should have gone after the VPs at Pearl, but oh well. Given what the KB did in my PBEMs maybe it wasn't worth it .

I'd try to stick to shallow water, and at least 5 hexes (if not 7) away from airbases that might have torps - Singapore, Palembang, Batavia, etc. Stringbags could ruin your day. Swordfish have a normal range of 6, extended of 8. Vildebeests are normal 4, extended 5 (no torps).

Tracker has a screen that sort of shows future engine needs but I just made my own excel sheet. It is more useful since I can put in future factory increases and then my sheet tells me how many engines I'll need. It is also a great exercise because it makes you notice some non-intuitive things - like A6M2 factories do not auto upgrade to A6M3 - they go to the FB version of the A6M2.


Anyway - aircraft and engines you have plenty of time to work on. The thing that is better to hit early, if you are going to do any at all, are aircraft R&D, and LI, HI and Naval Shipyard expansions. All of those pay you back better the earlier you make the upgrades. I'd suggest bumping all the LI in the home islands by 20-40 pts each. Bump some of the Korea HI and once you grab it, bump up Singapore HI. You can also adjust the HI at Java so that you are using up as much of the local fuel and resources as possible so you don't have to use shipping (and more importantly fuel!) hauling stuff home.

Another disappointing turn for the Japanese. Apparently my lack of naval skill as the Allies has followed me over to the Japanese side. Despite having overwhelming superiority in ships, 2 battles between Japanese heavy cruisers and the Allied light cruiser force are tactical losses for Japan.

I suck at this as the Japanese. I have no focus, I dont really understand where his forces are. I am not really having any fun.

Landed troops at Kuantan on Malaya as I judged Mersing was just too close to Singapore at this time. He has about 12 subs desperately trying to find the KB and I think it is time to move out to somewhere else that I can be of use.
