On the second day, the half the Kiddo Butai in range of Hawaii attacked again -
with fairly terrible results - excessive aircraft losses, modest damage to enemy
warships. However, the enemy paid for flying of unfit airstrips - losing large
numbers of aircraft operationally, not just in air combat and destroyed on the
ground. Compounding these problems, ships attacking Wake yesterday were
excessively damaged by USMC 5 inch and 3 inch gunfire. It will be impossible
to remove even one of the two units which landed unless additional ships are sent!

Elsewhere the campaign is going far more efficiently than I have ever seen.
Iba fell and 65th Brigade is marching on Clark directly. Iba is a significant
airfield in its own right. The major field nobody ever heard of in Southern
Luzon (a mine service airfield in North Camanes Province, which previously
had a primary "road to nowhere" turns out it was somewhere) as well as
Dole Pineapple Plantation airfields on Mindinao were captured. Kota Bahru
fell to the first assault. There are now no less than four IJA airfields in Malaya -
two level 4 and two level 2.

You're 1st strike on PH with only 3 carriers worth of AC was damaging as I have seen when all 6 KB heavies flew their ACs. Heavy damage to 6 BBs, 2 CAs and 1 CL, medium damage to 3 BBs, and 2 CLs and all that for two kates. In fact you had 37 torpedo hits from a maximum of 75 kates. Assuming every kate carried a torp. Thats 50% hit rate or better. Of course the 2nd day strike you got punished accomplishing little damage and lost 40+ KB planes and I assume pilots. I look forward to following the progress of this AAR.

Of course, you cannot be certain: AI sometimes lies. But clearly she took
two torpedoes, caught by the Ni Kiddo Butai (the CVL force) near Jolo. Otherwise,
American public reports indicate that the entire United States Fleet at Oahu was
put out of action, even if none of the capital ships were sunk. Every major ship
had "medium damage at least" and some will be out of action "for many months."
The main Kiddo Butai managed, finally, to reassemble its major elements - both
divisions and the tanker/support force - near Layson Island - well reported by
PBY searches (most of which resulted in the loss of the PBY).

Of course, you cannot be certain: AI sometimes lies. But clearly she took
two torpedoes, caught by the Ni Kiddo Butai (the CVL force) near Jolo. Otherwise,
American public reports indicate that the entire United States Fleet at Oahu was
put out of action, even if none of the capital ships were sunk. Every major ship
had "medium damage at least" and some will be out of action "for many months."
The main Kiddo Butai managed, finally, to reassemble its major elements - both
divisions and the tanker/support force - near Layson Island - well reported by
PBY searches (most of which resulted in the loss of the PBY).

This is a test game in which I only see the Japanese side. I have no
clue what the Allies are up to?

Anyone who wants to watch the turn execute, or the situation after combat,
ask for the files and password.

The Japanese offensive is setting records everywhere - except in the Central
Pacific - where early attacks caused limited damage to the United States
Fleet - and follow up attacks achieved nothing at all.
This is a test game in which I only see the Japanese side. I have no
clue what the Allies are up to?

Anyone who wants to watch the turn execute, or the situation after combat,
ask for the files and password.

In a message dated 3/4/2015 10:59:17 P.M. Alaskan Standard Time, Trevethans@aol.com writes:
The Kiddo Butai drew off to the West - being spotted (and shooting down PBY spotting planes) repeatedly near Johnston Island. It is down to four carriers forward - two having been dispatched to fill out understrength air squadrons from the intensive fighting after the first day of the war in which Allied fighter planes did remarkably well over Oahu. The last of these attacks hit no ships at all - so the cost in aircraft was not worth the effort. Allied air losses on that day were high only because they flew from damaged airfields - resulting in gigantic operational losses. Today KB refueled and proceeded to execute phase 2 of the opening plan - heading SW to cut the SLOC between the USA and Australia.
Although the Nanyo ("South Seas" = seas South of Japan) started with historical forces - that is - with very few assets, in Test Ten the Japanese strategy turns Fourth Fleet into what amounts to the Central and South Pacific Fleet of IJN, and major assets are committed to it from day one. These mainly need time to arrive in the forward operating areas as well as the key logistical rear area centers of Karor (Palau), Saipan, Truk and the Kwajalein base complex. Phase 2 operations contemplate KB covering early invasions all along the LOC area - both deep and
shallow - ultimately leaving no Allied locations in the entire area. The historical early invasions of Guam and Wake are to be followed by accelerated invasions of the Solomans, the Bismarck Archepellego and Eastern New Guinea. For now Western New Guinea is being skipped, even including the historical landing at its capital, Hollandia. These modified operations began with an invasion of a port/airfield on the North of New Britain at Talasea, and today included landings at Kavieng. The South Seas Detachment, which took Guam, is en route to invade Rabaul (both historical missions of the unit). Still other units, en route to Truk since the first days of the war, are planning to occupy New Caledonia, Fiji, the New Hebredes and possibly Samoa. Even before they can reach the area, three of the land units already forward - tasked with taking Wake and Ocean Island, will begin early operations in the deep South, covered by KB's main body.

Just to the West of Fourth Fleet's vast operating area, 16th Army (based from Karor to Honshu) is invading the Philippines from the South - starting with the key US air base on the Dole Pineapple Plantations at Cagayan, Mindinao, and the largely ignored (but historical) significant airfield in Southern Luzon NE of Legaspi (Legazpi in Tagalog). This Army landed its main body at the historical site at the village of Mauban on Eastern Luzon near Manila itself - using the good road from there to the West - splitting the South Luzon Corps force at Batangas. Turning North, it invested Manila today - insuring large numbers of Allied units will not retreat into it - which would be bad because it is an unusual major urban hex (outside China, Japan and India there are few of these, and they are great defensive terrain). A complication is that the South Luzon Corps moved a division Eastward from the battle area - and it arrived in the area near the barely defended Eastern end of the island - causing an early armor formation (with almost no tanks) and an infantry brigade to divert to defend the airfield servicing the mines in that area. The armor had to take an attack by that division today - the infantry having not yet arrived. Another armor unit moved North along the coast from Mauban, taking the coastal villages, and now moves toward Manila from the East. Armor because it moves better over secondary roads and trails (RHS features trails to channel movement and supplies along historical lines).

North of 16th Army, 14th Army, based mainly on Formosa and "Baku" (the Pescadores), invaded Luzon in force. Initial landings were at Iba, by 65th "Brigade" (modeled here as a division so it may split into its three regimental components) - followed by (Navy airborne SNLF) seizure of San Fernando and
48th Division landings at Lingayen Gulf. 65th Brigade pushed into the Clark area,
and has been engaged in reducing its defenses for two days - facing only one Philippine reserve division and a host of other units - including two regiments of Philippine Constabulary which each are worth more in combat than an entire division of reservists. 48th Division has moved to the SE on main roads, to take the area East of Clark, and is assembling in that area - so Manila is threatened from the NE as well as the NW - and it is already invaded from the SW. Airborne operations have occupied much of Northern Luzon, and today a recon battalion captured the hex North of Iba and NW of Linguyan City - mainly to permit the local economy to begin to "feed" Japanese forces.

Once the Philippines is occupied, these armies will split - with 14th Army responsible for LOC security in the Eastern SRA and for clearing Eastern NEI. These are to be followed by operations against Northern and then Western Australia. At the same time, 16th Army will by-pass New Guinea entirely - and moving through the areas captured by 4th Fleet, it will invade SE Australia. KB - already in the area because it covered 4th Fleet invasions - will cover these landings. It will then move North via the Torres Strait to cover 14th Army operations by the time they invest Perth.

Farther West, 25th Army, with its historical strength (including two divisions rejected by Gen Yamashita on logistical grounds - but also with more shipping to feed them) will rapidly reduce Malaya - and then the Western NEI. After that it becomes responsible for Western NEI security - including the vital SLOC for oil and resources from the area. 16th Army, using historical overland routes and forces, is moving across Thailand to invade Burma. Burma is a Phase 2 operation, but additional units already en route from Japan will enable it to invade Ceylon. The occupation of Burma is both to cut the land LOC to China and to be a good Western defense buffer for the SRA - it is not seen as a base for the overland invasion of NE India or of Western China. But in some event contingencies, either might be contemplated. Regardless, once secured by 16th Army, Burma will become the responsibility of the Burma Area Army - which does not yet exist but which forms relatively early - so 16th Army can then concentrate on Ceylon.

In China, there are two command areas (both historically and in RHS) - the Northern China Command, subordinate to Kwangtung Army, and the China Command, subordinate to the Daihonai (a combined services HQ after mobilization - generally mis-understood as Imperial General Headquarters). The Northern Command is responsible to clear Eastern China to the Yellow River, and for the occupation of Sian. The China command is responsible to link up the rail network from North and East China to Indochina - necessitating the capture of Changhsa - which should force the ROC (NRA historically and in RHS) Army into the rough terrain of Western China. It may contemplate occupation of the Szechwan basin and then of Kunming if these become logistically feasible - but otherwise it is simply to prevent the NRA from interfering with the economic exploitation of East and SE China.

In the North, Fifth Fleet is to build a logistical foundation for possible operations in the Fall. When the Monsoon and Fall seasons clear the area of ice cover, it is possible Eastern Siberia, Sakhalin Island, the Aleutians and Alaska may be invaded - mainly for what in game terms is termed victory points - that is - for strategic considerations. These operations will be coordinated with Kwangtung Army - which will use forces from North China (already under its command) - where it should by then merely have garrison duty.

This is a test game in which I only see the Japanese side. I have no
clue what the Allies are up to?

In Malaya the IJA is moving to contact with retreating enemy forces.
KB strikes Johnston Island. Otherwise combat centered in the Philippines -
land and sea - and in China. 15th Army has not yet reached Burma.


This is a test game in which I only see the Japanese side. I have no
clue what the Allies are up to?

Anyone who wants to watch the turn execute, or the situation after combat,
ask for the files and password.

The carrier force (under an Admiral Brown) South of Rabaul retired to the West. Not knowing which direction it would sail, I sent one six gun CA on three different vectors at full speed - each with a destroyer in company: South, Southwest and West. The one that went West encountered them - initial range 1000 yards! It might have been worse: one of the visual messages was that a Long Lance torpedo hit, but failed to detonate! Both US carriers were present - a surprise as the day before air strikes were too small for two carriers. Both were set on fire by 8 inch shells. However, clearly both were able to launch multiple air strikes. I screwed up too: the landing ships at Rabaul - with no troops - were directed to leave - but NOT directed to stop unloading - and one ship held up the force - which was wiped out. Fighter cover was over Talasea (on the Northern coast of New Britain - a Palm Oil and timber exporting port) - where all ships were supposed to gather. A similar error left a still loaded TF at Kavieng. [In this version of RHS, having learned that Japan built the airfield at Kavieng - it starts with NO airfield. On the other hand Talasea has a small airfield and level 2 port.] That force should also have been attacked - but was not.
Still - overall - Japanese Pete and Zero fighters took a terrible toll - accounting for most of the 27 Allied aircraft lost today. Even so, the Allied bombers also managed to hit surface ships - including significant damage to a battleship - at Talasea.
The fighting was sort of a pre-view of the Guadalcanal campaign - both forces at the limit of their present logistics engaged in bloody confrontations.

This is a test game in which I only see the Japanese side. I have no
clue what the Allies are up to?

Anyone who wants to watch the turn execute, or the situation after combat,
ask for the files and password.

In these three days reports (below) we see the sea actions off Port Moresby.
Darby (playing Allies) wanted to surprise a landing force and dispatched a
force of 5 DD to do the job. "I had no idea there were carriers around" he
writes. He found them. He replies (on the 26th) by sending in a squadron
of Aussie trainer/attack aircraft - which win a rare victory - in spite of opposition by
Zeros. Otherwise, clearing North and East China is proving unusually difficult -
with in fact Allied rare allied victories in the long litany of Japanese ones.
