Well, again Allied side. I have one game running as Japan, however my opponent is so good that I am feeling humiliated and there is no way I will ever public any information form that game :D

December 7, 1942

Allied air losses: 14 [total 14], Japan air losses: 27 [total 27]
Allied pilots losses: 2 WIA, 2 KIA [total 2 WIA, 2 KIA]

Allied ships losses: 1 x DD, 7 x SS, 1 x TK, 1 x AVD, 3 x PT, 1 x xAKL
Japan ships losses:


Well Castor Troy's opening was complete surprise for me. He has just send all of his assets against Manila port.

He added just two small landing, one at Singkawang with 91st Nav Gd Battalion and second at Vigan with 1st SNLF. Except that there is no sight of any amphib task force. Full KB + 3 TFs of light warships are parked next to SubicBay.

It should not be surprise for anyone that Manila port does not look well right now. Most of ship are seriously taking water, several others are already on the bottom of Manila harbour.

On the way to Singkawang his heavy cover TF sunk xAKL Dai Tung.
There was several sweep too. However only over sky of Manila was my fighters try to intercept incoming strikes. As result I have lost there 4 P-40E in dogfights and one due crash landed. Additionally a few airframes were lost on the ground due KB strike on AF.

And on end Force Z made only 3 hex full speed move and decided to park at Mersing where was attacked by two formations of G3M armed with bombs(Castor's TF loaded supplies at night and base supplies level was to low to fly with torps).

Well, I am going to be honest with you. I have no clue, I have not asked this question during HR's negotiation.
But, I like it.

But, I like it.

I can see this working both ways:
- the Allies get to withdraw their exposed troops into more defensible terrain and fill out the TOE of some units a bit.
- the Japanese get to reorganize their forces, perhaps to make a tank army that can smash through any defense and put the units in their jumping-off positions for Feb. 1

Well, with KB parked at front of Subic Buy all ships in Manila Bay are doomed.
However 3 US smokers got window of opportunity at night. Light cruiser Natroi supported by 6 destroyers was attacked from behind by RN destroyers running from Hongkong. One smoker was lost on mine however 3 managed to escape trap.

It was bad and lucky day for Big E. It got into walfpack Japanese subs and eat 2 fishes. Good news is that fail on my side it will cast me only 27 days in shipyard.

Annihilation of ships in Manila started with swept of 30 A6M2 at 25k feet.
US fighters were recovering after they losses at Dec 7, so incoming Zeros were intercepted just by 4 brave P-26A of Philippines Air Force. However fight was short and ended with 2 P-26A meeting ground. Next doom itself came, almost 300 G4M, G3M, D3A, B6N bombed port and ships in Manila bay.

In Malaya Yamada Det-S1 swept Singapore AF. This time raid was intercepted by RAF fighters. 59 Buffalos and 9 Blenheim engaged 18 Zeros in epic dogfight.
They managed to destroy 8 enemy fighters for cost of 10 Buffalos and 1 Bleinheim.

Heavy cruisers Myoko, Haguro, Nachi escorted by light cruiser Nagara and 4 destroyers are hunting for my ships on run south of Mindano. Somehow all of my ships managed to evade his warships and escape.

SS Sturgeon got little damage form two Japanese SC. But it can continue patrol with need heading back to port. The same fate meet SS Pike. Both are operating near Vigan.

Two escorts, destroyer and APD were attacked at Takao by 7 MTB from Honkong. I was hoping to catch some transport not warships :(

It was bad day for light cruiser Dragon. It was torpedoed by I-155 near Toboali. Two fishes were enough to sunk cruiser.

Clark was sept by two groups of A6M2 at 25k feet altitude. I decided to not fight here right now, to many zeros, to few P-40.

Group of 28 Oscars swept Taiping, I have no fighters there so strike targeted empty sky.

Hankong AF was bombed by hordes of Ki-48. AF is closed.

KB is moving west and it managed to sunk xAP Condesa near Puerto Princesa.
It is time for Force Z to leave Singapore. It will head Batavia for the moment.


Two Seagull attacked Castor's ships near Vigan. They installed one 250lbs SAP bomb into xAK Sydney Maru hull. Reports suggest sinking 2 guns and 4 vehicles :D

Singkawang has fall. It is time to run to the hill :)

On my side I am loading a four xAKL and xAK with supplies on Java.
One xAK and one xAKL group will try to slip to Singapore with 80k supplies.
Similar package will try slip into Manila Bay. Now when KB is sailing west this plan has chance for success.

Clark is going to be my main point of resistance on Luzon.

Still not clue what to do with 18th UK Div.

US Cruisers are heading back towards Luzon, they will try to open passage for transports with supplies if necessary.

Well, again Allied side. I have one game running as Japan, however my opponent is so good that I am feeling humiliated and there is no way I will ever public any information form that game :D


In spite of giving no info on the game, can we know who is such a good player?

Huge dogfight over Singapore has happen today. Three groups of enemy fighters swept base at 25k altitude, they were KB fighters groups each 18 Zeros. Base was defended by five RAF Squadrons plus one AVG squadron, 20 H81-A3, 59 Buffalos and 2 Mohawks IV. Dogfight ended with loss of 31 Buffalos and 9 H81-A3 for 22 A6M2. Additionally KB search effort over Singapore cost him 22 B5N2 and 20 D3A1 shoot down by CAP. Looks like he is trying to sink my small ships using massive settings for search mission and he is avoiding naval attack. Generally it works as long you are not park KB 2 hexes from base with massive CAP.


Generally it seems to me that we are going to have altitude contest very early :)

His Ki-48 are continues bombing Hongkong AF.

I have forgot to put down my B-17 and they decided to fly over Takao and Vigan. Well it did not went well. I have lost 8 B-17D :(.

Well done on the Singapore CAP trap!
He lost a lot of precious pilots much too early in the war!

Allied air losses: 14 [total 135], Japan air losses: 8 [total 119]
Allied pilots losses: 0 MIA, 5 WIA, 5 KIA [total 1 MIA, 29 WIA, 20 KIA]

Allied ships losses: CM, 7 xAK

301st PA Field Artillery Regiment arrives at Bataan

Forts:
Pearl Harbor expands fortifications to size 3
Singapore expands fortifications to size 2

There was several unsuccessful night sub actions on both side tonight.

Two Japanese destroyers intercepted and sunk convoy returning from Singapore.
I have lost 6 xAK there but lucky for me convoy was on way back to Java. It was one of 2 convoys witch unloaded 45K Supplies in Singapore yesterday. Now base has 110K supplies. So if I manage to fight my way back to base with India's troops and CAP hold a week longer I will have chance to build up fort level and make significant resistance there. Good news is that Japanese destroyers after engagement sailed directly into minefield :D

SS KXIV decided to engage xAKL using it's gun near Singawang. It scored 23 hits on enemy but is was force to widtdraw anyway due lack of ammo.

This time Castor brought elite to Singapore. Base was swept by 32 Zeros of Tainan Kukotai today. It did not went well for defenders as Zeros came at 29k feet altitude and enjoyed dive bonus. 7 Buffalos and 5 H81-A3 were lost for just 2 A6M2. My pilots need day or two of rest now . AVG/1 switched a/c to P-39D ;) Best fighter I have now in pool (little over 50).

Hong Kong still under bombs from hordes of K-48.

Six Seagull managed to score 4 hits on two his xAKs near Vigan. Both ships are on fire.

19 G4M bombed damaged ships running south from Manila. AM Quail was lost.


Two Kingfishers attacked and scored 3 250lbs SAP hits on xAK Igasa Maru near Miri. Ship is heavily damaged and on fire.

SS KXIV scored 2 torpedo hits and probably sunk xAKL near Singawang.

Well next unsuccessfully attack on Hong Kong. However losses become meaningful for defenders.

Mari has fallen today.

In Malaya his paratroops are become problem, they captured Port Dickson and resisted my counter-attack at Temouloh.

Four IJN destroyers sunk one MBT, 2 xAKL and xAKL near Kwangchowan.
I could not save those ship, what ever order they got, whatever settings for path and tolerance I set, they always run towards China :(

Now 3rd Kukotai and Tainan Kukotai are sweeping Singapore. They did meet any resistance, my fighter's pilots are resting. Most of pilots reach over 40 point in fatigue. I am very short on pilots, so my squadrons are operating undermanned. Additionally I have over 29 fighters pilots WIA plus 21 KIA :(

Ships near Siagao are still refuelling to move and are suffering from his G4M raids, no clue what is going on there.

I was expecting landing at Mersing tonight so I have sent there a few HDML.
However there was no landing, it seems to me his transports are heading back east ???? And my HDML were sunk by 9 G3M2 from Saigon.

Well every game has to end. Castor now have low flying CAP over Vigan, so not more Seagull raids there :(. I lost one today to his Ki-43.

I-23 sunk xAKL Malama near Lahaina. My ASW teams and planes are still incapable to clear PH waters :(

Castor send another big sweep to Singapore today. This time all my fighters were send to intercept at they max possible altitude. It seems to me that this tactic pay off in this case. Only a few Zeros got dive bonus and dogfight was very intense. His A6M2 came in three waves 31, 8, 36. Looks like Tainan and 3rd Kukoti, so his elite. As usually not all my fighters engaged by they made they best and shoot down 20 Zeros for 10 Buffalos, 8 P-40E, 7 H81-A3.
I am sure that presence of P-40 were nasty surprise for him, soon he will see another one. AVG/1 is now armed with P-39D :D. It cast me all my PP to change leaders and move them to Singa, but it seems that it was worth. They performed better than others a/c in this fight. I hope that he will be forced to give up or send army fighters. I am sure that at this point of game he cannot replace his pilots easily yet.


My Indian brigades recaptures Kuala Lumpur, however his paratroops captured Mersing. He is using small part of his para units to capture my bases. It is very nasty tactic in my opinion but well can do the same to him later :D.

And yet another big raid over Rangoon :( Any hope to finding one more fighter squadron in India ??? No luck so far.

He is using small part of his para units to capture my bases. It is very nasty tactic in my opinion but well can do the same to him later :D.


That is a very nasty tactic, but you are right that the Allies can return the favor an order of magnitude greater!

Madras expands fortifications to size 2

I have find out location of mini-KB, it is now east of Leyte. There was sight of it on Celebes Sea. I had 2 SAG ready to action on Sulu Sea and one on Celebes see, all were set to intercept possible mini-KB at full speed. It seems to me Castor has noticed his mistake and use full speed move to run away.
My SAGs are heading south now to refuel.

Two IJN destroyers engaged that "big fail" convoy next to Davao and sunk more shis. Now convoy is moving, but with all ships crippled there is not hope. So it seems than I will not save anything form Manila Harbor except a few subs and 3 old destroyers. :(

CL Jintsu intercepted my supplies run for Singapore, all ship down, however supplies were delivered. Now I have 600 AV behind for level 3 with 100K supplies. I hope it is enough to hold him until March. My suspicion mind says me that otherwise I will have early India invasion. Bad news is that two brigades are cut off on Singa and I will probably fail to get them to base before his landing at Mersing.

Singapore was swept by Oscars today, however my pilots had rest day ;)

At Singers I think if you get to 800-900AV you can hold a while. Under that it's tough against a player like Castor especially, who knows how this goes.

By the way I like your new AAR style. The losses for air and ships at top is nice. I may start doing that. I used to put losses at the bottom and I've gotten out of the habit. The totals each turn really give a good picture of the progress.

Well, all 3 my SGAs were engaged by Nagato and Mutsu with support of six destroyers on they way to refuel. Battles did not goes well for allies navy.
Boise and two destroyers are sunk, most of ships are damaged and are set head back to safety. PoW and Repulse were little to far to react. Just another bad day.

However on the sky over Singapore some sight of hope show up. I looks like he decided to withdraw 3rd and Tainan Kukotai. The base was swept again by two Oscar's Sentais and this time it was working day in Singapore airfield's gentlemen club ;) 13 Ki-43 down for 2 Bufallos and 2 H81-A3. We are getting better there every day. Most of USAAF squadrons avarage experience is over 50 and closing to 60. Similar situation with British and New Zelands units. However it seems to be problem with Australian pilots. They refuse learn as fast as they British and Americans friends :( Soon I will be able hold even against his navy fighters :D


Additionally Dutch units managed to hold Japanese at Sambas. But there is hopes for hold them more than one or two days.

Enemy paratroopers captured Kulong. Rail line to Singa was cut off anyway, so it does not matter now. My two Indian brigades are force to walk south anyway, and a few paratroopers here or there is not issue for them. The only problem is his landing at Mersing, however it did not happen today either. So with every day my chances to get out of Jungle are increasing little.

Oh, and he again bombing Rangoon, I need just one fighter squadron more.

Just very bad day:

At Singers I think if you get to 800-900AV you can hold a while. Under that it's tough against a player like Castor especially, who knows how this goes.

By the way I like your new AAR style. The losses for air and ships at top is nice. I may start doing that. I used to put losses at the bottom and I've gotten out of the habit. The totals each turn really give a good picture of the progress.


Thanks for good word. I know that 600 or even 800 AV is not a lot, but I am hoping to build forts up to level 4 or 5. So, all my hopes are in forts level. That is the only reason for engage him in sky over the base. It is clear to me he want to eat Singapore fast and goes somewhere else. He is completely ignoring Philippines and Pacific direction, I think this mean India adventure. Right now I am still confuse were should I send one free US Division and 18th Brit Division.

18th Brit Div. needs to fill out its TOE, so I would put it at Bombay where there is lots of supply production. With the rail network you can move it anywhere in India fairly quickly. Ceylon is a trap until you can get enough air and sea power to keep the IJN away.

The US division goes wherever you are most worried about the Japanese arriving, are able to supply and able to fight against a determined invasion. There are several places in SoPac that you need, key cities in Australia, and industrial cities in India like Madras and Calcutta. Karachi is important to quickly land reinforcements from Aden. My choice would be Adelaide or Melbourne for now, until you see where his offensive is going.

December 18, 1941

Allied air losses: 6 [total 188], Japan air losses: 1 [total 170]
Allied pilots losses: 0 MIA, 2 WIA, 0 KIA [total 3 MIA, 44 WIA, 24 KIA]

Allied ships losses:
no ship losses ??? Impossible !!!.


Reinforcements:
183rd Field Artillery Battalion arrives at Tacoma
110th Cmbt Engineer Battalion arrives at San Luis Obispo


Forts:
Singapore expands fortifications to size 4
Suva expands fortifications to size 2
Adelaide expands fortifications to size 1
Brisbane expands fortifications to size 1
Melbourne expands fortifications to size 1
Perth expands fortifications to size 1
Port Augusta expands fortifications to size 1
Kunming expands fortifications to size 2

Castor finally decided to land at Mersing. 34 units, well this can problem.
This rather confirm as I suspect that he is planning overextend, otherwise not reason to send all to capture Singapore so fast.

36 Oscars swept empty sky over Clark. The last squadron there is on training mission.

4 Kingfishers escorted by 4 P-26A scored 2 250lbs SAP hits on Japanese destroyer
Harukaze. Pilot's report suggest that ship is on fire.

And Dutch units at Sambas did not hold even one more day :D.

I am organizing Java defence. Main point of resistance will be place in mountains at Bandoeng. I have learned hard way that urban hex it is not enough to hold IJA for while.

Force Z and Brit cruisers are heading back to Soerabaja for refuel. US navy ships were send down to Darwin, I have there some fuel.

I have 9 Dutch subs at Mersing and around no luck at all. Lot of D3A on search mission does not help. I have sent a few fighters to provide air cover for my subs. But result are not as good as I had hopes. Just one dive bomber down by air cover and in return I have got heavy fatigue level for involved squadrons :(.

OK, As advised 18th British Division is going to Bombay right now. 41st US Division is moving to Cape Town. 24th will be moved to Suva and 25th US will be moved to Sydney, of course all this will happen when I will have enough PP to buy them out.

Training camp for army pilots is set at March field. There is over 200 fighter pilots and 150 bomber pilots training now.

Training camp for USMC is set at San Diego, 100 fighters pilots and 200 bombers.

However still not way to train US Navy pilots :(

Mr. Kane,

I would love to follow your AAR but the tiny serif font is far too difficult for my old tired eyes to handle.

December 19, 1941

Allied air losses: 1 [total 190], Japan air losses: 3 [total 173]
Allied pilots losses: 0 MIA, 0 WIA, 0 KIA [total 3 MIA, 45 WIA, 24 KIA]

Allied ships losses: Sub, 4 AM, 4 AK.


Reinforcements:

203rd Coast AA Regiment arrives at Los Angeles
44th Cavalry Regiment arrives at Vizagapatnam
35th Infantry Division arrives at Fort Ord


Forts:
Koggala expands fortifications to size 1
Cairns expands fortifications to size 1
Hengyang expands fortifications to size 2

Whole IJA Army is marching towards Kluong, so not more hope for 2 Indin brigades. Well played on hus side with paratroopers. I have played so many time with this practice forbidden by house rules that I forgot about this possibility.

Now, I am thinking about seeping Mersing with 200 fighters located at Singa :D


Supplies convoy for Manila did not run fast enough. I was intercepted by 4 cruisers supported 4 destroyers. So no more supplies for Clark, 80K I have there right now must do it.

4 Kingfishers scored 250lbs SAP hit on CL Naka. It's group moving south east, probably to refuel and rearm at Babeldaob. I have moved 10 PBY-4 and 15 SB2U-3 with hope to hit this SAG when it will be passing Mindanao.

Another big raid over Rangoon. I need that fighter squadron !!!.

More paratroops drops over Malaya. Mergi and Kota Bharu are lost.

You will soon get some new Kingfisher squadrons on the USA WC. These fill out fairly quickly and you can use them to train USN fighter pilots.
