This newly released scenario was, ironically, also the very first RHS scenario
in terms of start of work for AE: Mifune began work on it fully two years before
I decided to do an AE/RHS. In his original conception it needed to use an
extended map system, while I decided it was safer to go with the stock map system.
So the scenario was not compatible with RHS Level I, and there is no Level I form
of it. For a variety of reasons, including the loss of computers to the heat of
South Florida (where Mifune lives) and confusion on my part, the files were lost.
In the end I rebuilt the scenario using Mifune and AltWars concepts, based on RHS
Scenario 105, which in Level II is 125 - the only other RHS Japan Enhanced Scenario.
Mifune was finally able to recover the art from AltWars off several old disk drives,
and I integrated it to produce this scenario.


This is RHS Level II Test One. Its purpose is to "show off" the scenario, to validate
its data (i.e. detect eratta), and to insure the economy as modified is working as intended.

I am playing Japan and will publish the Japanese turns daily for those on the RHS email
list. What Mifune may do for the Allies in terms of publishing is not yet decided.

The point of a Japan Enhanced Scenario is to improve the terrible play balance between
Japan and its enemies. While it is clear that the US and its allies had become tired
of war by 1945, unless Japan wins another "short, victorious war" (the Japanese term
for the Russo-Japanese War), it will face what should be overwhelming Allied forces by
the late war period. As well, after the fall of Germany, many US and other forces stationed in
Europe can transfer to the Pacific. To that add that in these Japan Enhanced Scenarios other
things have been added for the Allies. Generally based on historical planning not implemented,
the Allies get additional types of aircraft, build more roads and rail lines in the theater,
and generally have more options (e.g. more ways to convert ships - so for example a battleship
or a cruiser can appear sooner in carrier form, or be "converted" back to their gunship form
- so they appear on the historical date in that form).

In this test, Japan will attempt to win the war outright in 1942. RHS uses a re-defined form of
auto-victory. While the code remains as was, it only checks the victory point ratio on the first
day of 1943. The RHS rule says if, on ANY day in 1942, Japan achieves a 4:1 VP ratio, it wins.

To that end, production of ships that will appear after November, 1942, is suspended. As well,
investments that cost HI points unrelated to aircraft production will be minimized. The object is
to maximize aircraft production of desired types in the approximately one year of conflict. This
requires a great deal of planning, starting with the aircraft and engine production plan. That process
is now underway.

Mifune, who designed Scenario 129 (TWO = Total War Option)
is in charge of Allied strategy.

I am in charge of Axis strategy.

It is our intent (apart from detecting eratta, which detail turn entry facilitates) to show off the features both of RHS and of this scenario.

Scenario 129 assumes revised Japanese strategic and military policy c 1931,
at which time standardized engineering plants were adopted, and used to power generally standardized warships of all types. The dominant strategic vision for IJA is General Yamashita, while the dominant strategic vision for IJN is Admiral Ozawa. This results in a rather more useful and balanced fleet - for example the fleet speed
is nearly uniform in the 30 knot range - as well as a war plan inspired by that of 1906: "The Short Victorious War." In place of new build battleships, Japan has ten old but wholly rebuilt battleships - uniformly armed with eight big guns (mainly 14 inch, but Nagato and Mutsu retain the 16 inch). Four battleships lose a pair of center turrets each: all four pairs become pre war, shore based, defensive batteries named in honor of the ship from which they came (similar for the Pennsylvania Battery named for the ship from which the turret was taken - yes - part of Pennsylvania was recovered and is not on the bottom of Pearl Harbor). There are far fewer variations for most ship types: destroyers are all Fubuki type, as improved over time; submarines are mostly large C type attack subs, medium sized Kaidai type, and small Ro-100 type, etc. Almost no specialist or minor variations are built - although a few developmental ships remain: Ryujo, for example. Most ships historically converted are laid down to a standard design: Shoho for example. Hiyo and Junyo are not laid down as liners, but instead as repeat Soryu's. There are actually far fewer CVE's and auxiliary carriers. Japan does not plan a long war nor can it afford to contest long lines of communications using US style escort carriers as escort ships. Generally earlier concepts are implemented: for example a CLAA class using the superb 4 inch DP guns instead of the AA destroyers using the same weapon (albeit in smaller numbers).

The Japanese plan is based on concentration of force on primary objectives, with a view to sweeping the SRA rapidly, with initial distant operations limited to (a) disabling the United States Fleet at Pearl Harbor (if possible), (b) contesting the strategic sea lines of communications (because escorting and patrolling is resource inefficient for the enemy), and (c) creating the impression of threats which either are not going to materialize or which will only materialize in highly unlikely, favorable circumstances.

To this end, Pearl Harbor will still be attacked by six carriers. These are Akagi, Kaga and four Shokaku class ships - two of them named in honor of battleships never begun - Yamato and Musashi. This force is divided into two divisions of three carriers, each containing two fast battleships (Kongos, which remain the fastest in the fleet) and a heavy cruiser (Tone class, but this is a standard 5 turret CA, not the modified 4 turret version), and a CLAA (a converted WWI CL, using a historical conversion plan not implemented). A third 'medium sized' carrier force is available (using Hiryu and three Soryu's - two of them replacements for Hiyo and Junyo) are escorted by two modified Nagato class (similar to the historical conversion but with the standard power-plant - they are long enough to have a fraud number permitting 30 knots on the higher power), and a third CLAA of the same type as the first two divisions have. These are able to support operations in the Philippines area.

The plan calls for the rapid reduction of Luzon, moving so as to prevent a fortress Manila strategy. The traditional invasion by 14 th Army is staged mainly to obtain airfields which will support the real invasion effort - on the East coast directly opposite Manila - permitting its investment rapidly. At the same time, Mindinao will be neutralized and invaded, cutting off the possibility of retreat from Luzon.

The plan also calls for the rapid reduction of Malaya, moving so at to prevent a fortress Singapore strategy. The traditional invasion by 25 th Army is staged mainly to obtain airfields which will support the real invasion effort - on the SE coast - at Kuantan - permitting its investment rapidly. At the same time, elements of 15 th Army on the map (except for one regiment historically used briefly invading Northern Malaya) will move to establish an early line of communications and bases for operations in Burma earlier than history.

Otherwise, the plan calls for limited operations in Eastern China, with a view to establishing a railroad line of communications with Indochina and a secure area useful for producing resources which can be shipped to Japan using the short Sea
of Japan and East China Sea routes. It is intended to conduct a pre-mature Ichi-Go operation in 1942, but not to attempt the reduction of Sian, Chunking or Kunming except if exceptional opportunity presents itself.

If successful, the plan might neutralize most Allied assets in the SRA and Eastern China, and Burma, by mid-1942. At that point, a series of operations intended to secure maximum victory points by the end of the year will be considered. The the object is to achieve a 4:1 ratio on or before the last day of the year, either of which is automatic victory in RHS.

This turn might be called "bloody shambles" as the different strategies of both
sides interact to produce often messy and somewhat unusual results.

Off Malaya, a minelayer encountered a major invasion group off Kuantan
on the SE coast, causing the entire force to retire! Off NW Luzon, several
actions with US Army patrol boats may have prevented landings at San
Fernando. But it fell anyway - to airborne assault - in a near run battle
between a Filipino battalion and part of a very light IJN airborne SNLF.
It may be academic, however, as Japan managed to land right beside Manila.
But the air group of a CVL covering that landing was gutted by fighters
over Manila. Mifune's use of cross connecting, high altitude fighter
sweeps, CAP and area CAP over central Luzon was remarkably effective
for the first day.

Possibly the greatest disaster for the Japanese was the torpedoing of a CVL
off Malaya: the Allied escorted bomber tactic generally failed due to very
heavy bomber strikes on most bases. But the enemy didn't want to lose the
runway at Kota Bahru - and elected to strafe it with fighters instead.
A bomber/fighter strike from that vector did manage the one hit on a carrier
of the day.

A more surprising outcome was the battle off Hawaii. Off because very few
vessels remained in port for the air strike (with more than 300 bombers escorted
by more than 100 Zeros) to become targets. The entire United States Fleet was
at sea - either seeking potential enemies on various vectors - or leaving the area
in the case of auxiliaries and empty transports and tankers - or covering these -
or engaged in gunnery practice with USS Utah - or minelaying and minesweeping
exercises. A few vessels tried to deliver supplies to island very short of them -
as did transport aircraft. And a few vessels transferred to Lahaina Roads -
as did a half squadron of USMC fighters, a squadron of USMC dive bombers, and a
USAAF observation squadron. Some minor types sought to leave the potential
battle area by going to Hilo - either from Pearl or from their positions at sea.
ALL of these operations ended up encountering the enemy - although not all the task forces were engaged.

It turns out that if the entire fleet is at sea, the Advance Force Pearl Harbor (aka the Sixth Submarine Fleet) gets to do what it was intended to do. IJN expected IT to score more than the carriers! On this first day of the fight, the subs did indeed deliver. Of two battleships sunk outright, one is credited to a sub torpedo, one to an aircraft torpedo. The enemy carriers were located and identified by the tight
air search pattern (five hexes) - that search facilitated both air strikes and at least one brief encounter between a battleship division and the Kiddo Butai. Three quarters of the battleships survived - most of them undamaged - and an even larger proportion of the smaller warships and auxiliaries survived. On the other hand, they are now at sea with an enemy that (a) knows where they are and (b) no longer needs to take out the land based airfields on Oahu! It remains to be seen if this was a good idea - or not?

In the East China Sea area there were a couple of successful anti-naval air strikes vs the massive numbers of vessels fleeing China for points in the Philippines. But even larger numbers fleeing across the South China Sea were essentially unengaged. Wether they can continue this flight also remains to be seen?

Although both sides sent many task groups up and down the Yangtze, it appears there were no contacts - not even with static barriers of river booms nominally blocking both sides not far from each other near Ichang. Perhaps there will be more action tomorrow?

Vice Admiral Ozawa took the Ichi (one) Kiddo Butai to the West, directing Rear Admiral
Yamaguchi to take the Ni (two) Kiddo Butai to the East - hoping to catch stragglers.
Kate's were set to optimum range naval strike WITH torpedoes, with Oahu port as the secondary target.
Val's were set to maximum range - permitting strikes without 60 kg bombs if the range to target
was too great. Each force managed to sink today one of the damaged ships reported sunk yesterday.
As well, USS Utah, and two battleships, at Lahaina were attacked in port. Covered by land based
fighters, these attacks only managed to put a torpedo into the ancient Utah, without serious effects.
As well, Yamaguchi managed to sink a large AK fleeing to the US West Coast. The rest of the United
States Fleet has disappeared from recon reports - except for PT boats reported at Pearl and a few other
vessels spotted at Lahaina.

General Homma decided to back up the successful landing East of Manila. Several task groups were diverted
to back it up - partly to avoid enemy submarines off the NW coast of Luzon.

Similarly, Genearal Yamashita decided to re-mount the landing at Mersing - and to direct other troops to support it
in a few days. He hopes to cut off the retreat of most of the enemy units into Singapore - which renders it hard
to take quickly.

A second force is en route to Wake. It simply failed to load fast enough to participate in the primary
assault yesterday. Ships of the first force took their lumps from the Marine CD unit - landing enough
supplies the SNLF already ashore is no longer in trouble. It will wait for the reinforcements before attempting
an assault. Land based air support was unable to fly due to weather.

Hollendia's landing completed today and will attempt an assault tomorrow. A cruiser force is in route to back
it up if needs be. Buka fell to the minor units landed yesterday. That was likely as only a small detachment
of engineers defended the airfield. Lugainville was undefended and so fell to landing parties from Aikoku Maru and
Gogoku Maru.

In China most units are marching to contact. The primary objectives are Kaifeng in the North China Plain, Changsha
in the Yangtze basin center, and Hong Kong in the Pearl River basin. In the Northwest, enemy units still need to
be cleared from the road North of Peking, and Sinn Sein in the mountains must be invested and captured.

Axis Password ADMOZAWA
This file amounts to an Axis Situation After Combat Report. The moves
for the following day for Malaya and Luzon were already entered, as was
Wake, to permit accurate commentary.

Somewhat as in history, General Yamashita's 25th Army is doing superbly
well. It has the new Japanese 2nd Tank Division - a concept proposed by
Yamashita for rapid creation of a tank corps by using existing units. This unit
did unexpectedly well for the last two days, having defeated a prepared defense
including an Aussie brigade, and now having crossed Malaya at its base,
fit to attack the enemy units trying to keep the LOC open. It is unlikely either
of two Indian Army divisions will be able to form or reach Singapore to stiffen
its defenses. But most amazing of all, this division is essentially over strength.
[This sometimes happens in AE when sub units combine into a parent formation]
Except for its 'medium tanks' (the Chi-Ha) - most device types are at or over
full TO&E - in spite of losses to ships sunk and to combat (which, apparently,
were minimal). There were simply not enough Chi-Ha to fill out the four tank
regiments from which the division was formed (it actually starts in component
form and players are NOT required to assemble them into a division if they
prefer to play with the individual elements). Somewhat making up for that,
the number of light tanks is remarkably large. This division will attempt to
cut the LOC today and the bulk of both Army and Navy bomber forces will
support its attempt. Because of the strength of the position in the South -
and the danger of the tank force losing its LOC - several units are moving
to Mersing by both land and air transport. A small infantry security unit
is flying in, a small independent company sized base force is the first to
sail in, and the 114th Infantry Regiment is both flying and sailing in from
several points - it being strung out all along the NE coast of Malaya.

25th Army's main body is trying to cross Malaya in the North using the
somewhat inadequate road net. [It IS somewhat better than in stock,
because there is a primary road to Alor Setar (better known in the West
as Alor Star - an English corruption of the Malay). Another problem is
that the units land in components and came on convoys of differing speeds -
taking the time to re-allocate them would prevent operations for days.
So these units are sorting out using roads and rail lines now secure.

The 25th Army's "air force" (the Third Hiko-Shudan - the formal name changes
early in 1942) is now substantially in Malaya - a second Level 4 airfield becomes
operational today - and no longer significantly challenged by enemy air units.
It is able to focus on defense of units landing at Mersing and on supporting the
attack by the tank division at Batu Bahat immediately West of Mersing.

The situation in Luzon is remarkably more disappointing, somewhat similar to
real life (but to a lesser degree). NW Luzon has almost no ground combat force -
two detachments of a regiment (which may be able to reform into a single unit)
- and both of those well North of the nominal front. Most of the units allocated to
this area diverted to the area East of Manila - where they have now landed in force
at (the historical) landing site at Mauban. But the initial landing - at Infanta -
was unexpectedly contained by a quick offensive move by a tank unit, now supported by two good infantry regiments. The 16th Division attack failed (Stuarts in numbers with support by first class US Army Regular and Philippine Scouts infantry were up to defending their position). All but one regiment of the division is here (the third
regiment, in two elements, is at Davao - also hung up). But these units are not fit to attack and so will rest today. 65th Brigade (a weird infantry group, considered green by its commander, but remarkably effective IRL) is leading the advance inland from Mauban - now well supported by over a dozen other units (although part of the Brigade is still en route). It is THIS advance which may prevent the South Luzon Force from reaching Manila - although presumably they will be able to retreat into it eventually.

On Mindinao, a significant landing in the North has lost contact with the enemy - a division, a regiment, a corps HQ and a base force appear all to have vaporized! Davao is invested, but there is only one (divided) regiment - the second element
just landed to back up the first - and it is unclear the jungle hex can be captured by such a small force - and certainly not until air support becomes available. The carriers sent to back this force have gone off into the Java Sea, delighted to sink
enemy shipping. But at least a fine air base at Cagayan del Oro will soon be captured - a recon unit should arrive today. That will permit flying in the air power needed to begin reducing the islands defenses - which apparently will involve fighting in the central highlands.

Wake Island is very much like history only WORSE! A naval infantry force (normally assigned to base defense, larger than a line SNLF) is in terrible condition after a very poor decision to land its remaining elements yesterday. That ship was SUNK by the Marine Defense Battalion - but the fact it landed anything forced a shock attack. These Marines have no clue they are doomed to die. [Or worse, maybe they do. Sun Tzu says troops with no retreat fight three times as hard!] A third unit is now planning up to go to Wake from Kwajalein - and the ships to carry it are now arriving and unloading supplies so they can form a new amphib group. These are survivors of the first two waves. The USMC air defense is still viable - the airfield being damaged but not unusable. Both Marine fighters (acting as bombers) and Marine coast defense guns have sunk several ships and caused excessive casualties on the landing forces.
Admiral Yamaguchi's Second Carrier Division (Ni Kiddo Butai) is en route as well.

Admiral Ozawa's First Carrier Division (Ichi Kiddo Butai) needs to rest. So its squadrons are all resting except for one flight of Kate recon planes and a single seaplane on a cruiser - set to search. They are headed South in hope of locating enemy ships which may be retiring on Christmas Island - although no attack will be possible if they are found - finding some could set up attacks the following day (assuming the squadrons shed enough of their exhaustion).

Admiral Nagumo's Third Carrier Division (San Kiddo Butai) - now West of Makassar - is in remarkably good shape in spite of operations that sank several ships yesterday.
He has decided to retire on Cam Rahn Bay to rearm via the Java Sea! The enemy appears unable to mount effective land based anti-naval air strikes (except using the ancient Vildebeeste out of Malaya - most of those now being lost) - and also it appears many ships tried to retire on Java - so possibly it is a 'target rich environment.'

Major surface forces - one of four fast battleships and one of four large cruisers (two in CA form, two in 15 gun CL form) - in the South China Sea - responding to both a lack of need for surface forces off Malaya and air contact with ships moving South
across that sea - will sweep Eastward- then retire on Cam Rahn to repair and wait for Nagumo's carriers. The two remaining CVLs in the area, also retiring - will sweep wide to the East North of the surface forces - just in case there are more ships behind those detected. Still another CVL group is sweeping in from the East, crossing the Sulu Sea today, in case (untracked) enemy ships tried to go over the top of Borneo (to evade Nagumo who was South of them a few days ago). If many enemy ships have been able to survive the first three days, perhaps that won't continue to be the case! Yet another Allied ship - presumably the Robert L Barnes station tanker from Guam - is being hunted by destroyers broken off from a replenishment group at Truk.

The South Seas Detachment is loading at Guam, and assigned to capture Hollandia - which in spite of having almost no defenses has resisted attacks by an independent company of navy air support troops (it only has a platoon of infantry). Never mind all survive - they cannot get odds on the defenders. The South Seas Detachment should then be available to support offensives by the Fourth Fleet.

Buka has fallen and the capital of Bougainville - Kieta - the only other airfield in the area (other than Rabaul) - is to be captured by a landing party. So is the large airfield (built for Amelia Airhart's round the world flight attempt) on Howland Island. These operations, along with the capture of Lugainville, are deceptive and meant to imply major offensives into this area to cut the SLOC from the US West Coast. But the landing parties with draw immediately. As a result the now Japanese bases will 'report' if enemy units land there to build them up. A German landing party is also
en route to a very Southern island base - but it takes time to cross the Indian Ocean. That ship - the Ichi Maru (ex Thor) - has more than enough range to circumnavigate the world!

China continues to be a mixed bag with operations focused on clearing the land lines of communications. Hong Kong was reduced a bit but the attack force needs to recover from the effort today. Most of the reinforcements sent to China have yet to make contact with enemy forces - so it isn't yet clear what effect they may have.

This file amounts to an Axis Situation After Combat Report - it is the next Axis turn before turn entry. The replay follows with the Allied Situation After Combat.

This was a very active turn on several fronts, with some surprises.

Vice Admiral Ozawa's First Carrier Division (Ichi Kiddo Butai) actually got into trouble, running into a couple of stray destroyer minelayers in daylight within gunnery range, and they managed to put a couple of shells into one of his carriers - creating at least a moment of excitement because the carrier art showed it trailing smoke! But WWI era four inch shells didn't do much harm. Having moved to the South hoping to spot ships retreating to places like Christmas Island or Tahiti, and also resting air crews other than a few scouts, yesterday's reports indicated an enemy battleship division had been spotted (two BB). Assuming (possibly incorrectly) that the scout aircraft were spotted, the division moved to the SE on a vector that should have it in range if the enemy either turned to run for the West Coast OR continued on a vector toward Christmas - assuming the enemy did not sprint (a difficult option far at sea, far from places to repair engines or refuel). What turned up was a squadron of support ships to the South and a division of battleships to the North. And the game elected to attack both - with devastating effects. Remnants of both formations remain on the plot - but nothing else is. So this force will retire to meet the tankers tomorrow. The number of enemy battleships doubled - from two to four.

Rear Admiral Nogouchi's Second Carrier Division (Ni Kiddo Butai) continues West on a vector to Wake. However, a very unwise strike by Admiral Halsey's carriers at Tarawa may cause this force to divert to the SW tomorrow. Halsey - passing near Tarawa - sank two ships remaining there unloading supplies - the other had withdrawn back to Kwajalein to help with mounting another expedition to Wake.

Vice Admiral Nagumo's Third Carrier Division (San Kiddo Butai) found and sank ships along the Southern Coast of Borneo. This group will continue its circumnavigation of the island tomorrow - hoping to find still more ships. The enemy isn't yet organized enough to oppose a major task force anywhere in the area.

North of Borneo, several task groups engaged some of the many ships fleeing China and the Philippines. Many more of these vessels were detected. So a new, scratch surface force will leave Cam Rahn Bay tomorrow to join the two surface action groups and two CVL groups hunting them down. The apparent near total escape of these vessels may now turn into a near total loss.

To the West, the (very green) Second Tank Division ran into trouble for the first time. Numbers of units railed in (never mind it is a contested hex, that is possible along an owned hexside) to cause the odds to change so badly that the hoped for victory - which would isolate Singapore - didn't happen. Apparently there is a reinforced enemy division in difficult jungle terrain. Bomber strikes were insufficient to guarantee victory. There will be a real fight for the approaches to Singapore. And there is nothing significant (apart from bombers) able to support this drive.

To the East, most of the 14th Army offensive units landed at Mauban. An enemy unit managed to reach the hex (via a primary road) - so they will attempt to maul it tomorrow with a shock attack - supported by air power and possibly naval bombardment as well. Just to the North - at Infanta - the troops too exhausted today are now recovered enough to attempt a deliberate attack as well. Not so much because it will beat a force of first class US and Scouts infantry with serious tank support as because it will probably prevent their use to defend Manila's Southern flank - there is more than one way to invest a city, shut down supply production and prevent arrival of reinforcements!

There were a number of actions in China. Possibly unexpected by the enemy was a sortee by three 19th century (!!) heavy cruisers (armored cruisers) challenging the ROC river boom. Although it was reinforced by gunboats, it was horribly mauled. Even so, one of the cruisers was damaged and all three will retire to rearm and repair. That means going to Shanghai - a long trip - so it will be a week or more before they can return - if they do. A single division easily repulsed the corps on the front line ahead of Changsha. The army (corps) trying to enter the hex never had time to get there to back up the Whale Division (aka 40th, a Class B formation). But this was open country - the next line of defense - in a forest - usually is a tough nut to crack.

A battle at Kuei Tech, to open the LOC to Kaifeng, was less successful. These Chinese troops ran into some kind of corps - not just a guerilla unit on the LOC - and were stopped cold (but not badly damaged). It may be necessary to bring in the regular IJA to clear this road and rail LOC. While there is another RR to Kaifeng -
it is well defended by a corps in good defensive terrain - and it will take time to move to contact - even though a tank unit is trying to do that. For one thing, it takes time to convert from rail to road movement. So Kaifeng will remain isolated for a few more days.

An enemy corps of some power has isolated Ichang from Wuhan. Attacked by reinforcements moving through the hex up to Ichang, it defeated the assault easily. So reinforcements are being sent to eject it from that LOC.

There were other actions - but most places are moving to contact or, in the case of Hong Kong - recovering before the next assault. The IJA has committted the Artillery Group to China. Its three brigades arrived at Peking today and combined to form the entire (division sized) formation. In theory this formation should blow away any resistance at a strong point (e.g. Changsha) - but testing indicates it is not nearly as powerful as it should be. Just 1/3 of it ended resistance on Bataan in 20 minutes - rendering all the opposing units combat ineffective. Veterans of WWI said nothing on the Western Front could compare with that bombardment. The entire Artillery Group should be a very powerful asset. The IJA believed (as did General Marshall) that specialist units were most effective when committed precisely when and where required. But IJA never did commit its artillery group in WW2 - although it did send part of it to back up 14th Army when it had a problem on Bataan. Most of that trouble was a lack of troops - only one Brigade of infantry remained to face two corps of US and Philippine troops! The rest had left for the NEI after Manila fell.

This was another very active turn on most fronts. Also a somewhat surprising
turn in some respects.


In spite of the nominal decision for the First Carrier Division to retire
on its tanker train (NE of Christmas Island), only the tankers got the proper
orders. The carrier force continued on its original course to a position E
of Christmas Island, where recon found two formations of ships NW of it,
a near repeat of the previous days case: a division of battleships and a squadron
of support ships. Other ships were also found or even encountered (in a near
surface battle that didn't pan out), but the significant development is that apparently another quarter of the United States Fleet is now sunk!

The Second Carrier Division elected not to chase Halsey's force South of Tarawa because he could sail in too many directions and chances of engagement are poor.
So it continued on to help the assault on Wake, and possibly after that at Hollendia.

The Third Carrier division continued its circumnavigation of Borneo, but today the enemy seems to have got the hang of evasion.

Enemy ships were not so successful in the South China Sea, where numbers of major and minor ships, fleeing China and the Philippines, have few options, hemmed in by land based search planes and numbers of task forces (two carrier, three surface). Large numbers of Allied ships were lost in that area.

On Luzon, Homma's 14th Army main force, at Mauban, badly mauled the Philippine Army 41st Infantry Division, forcing it to retreat with serious losses. This army will now march to the West with a view to entering Manila from the SW. The now recovered 2/3 of the 16th Division, just North at Infanta, will take over the offensive and attack tomorrow, hoping to drive on the City from the East. This isn't likely to work - but with air power and possibly naval gunfire support, it might.

In Malaya, the Second Tank Division again proved inadequate to defeat the ever increasing enemy forces at Batu Bahat. Never mind, the strategic effect of its drive has apparently got all enemy forces in Northern and Central Malaya moving - so that area should collapse rapidly. As well, these units are not in the major urban hex of Singapore and should be easier to defeat than if they were. The leading elements of
the advance from Singora reached Alor Star - which is undefended - so it will fall tomorrow. (This force is part of the 11th Infantry Regiment, two battalions of assault engineers and an artillery unit). The 42nd Regiment, crossing a bit farther South from Yala Province, will enter the hex East of Georgetown tomorrow. One enemy unit - probably a rear guard - is reported in that hex. A lot of troops are following it down the major road. And the 113th Infantry Regiment, advancing South from Kota Bahru, caught up with the still disorganized defenders of Kota at Kuala Kera - and will attack them tomorrow. This route is just a trail - the foundation of a railroad actually - so it took a while to move along it.

In China, numbers of air units and reinforcements arriving by railroad began to reach the Northern front today. The LOC SE from Kaifeng was cleared, as were two rail lines to seaports, where transports began unloading supplies today. This is necessary to support the major forces moving into the area. The Yellow River Plain should now be cleared rapidly. Once the various other enemy units are driven from the area, the offensive will focus on capturing the Loyang/Chengchow city and base complex just West of Kaifeng. That is necessary to secure the RR LOC to Wuhan and the main road to Sian (the so called "Mother Road" which runs from Shanghai all the way to Central Asia). In the South, fortifications at Hong Kong were again reduced, but at sufficient cost there must be another pause as both land and air units recover.

The real heart of this campaign, which is modeled on the Short Victorious War (the Russo Japanese War), is the organization of follow on forces until all are committed (the Battle of Mukden was won by the oldest draft in the IJA, the 55 year olds, after which there were NO more troops available). Most of the units not required to garrison the rear have now moved to ports of embarcation - mainly Hiroshima/Kure,
and Darien/Port Arthur - unless they moved to North China by rail - where many
of these units have reached points in the Yellow River Plain or the Peking assembly area. At the same time, line air units have been shedding second rate aircraft in favor of newer types, but training units have been shedding trainers in favor of second line types - so they won't be scrapped and can be used later assuming a problem of attrition may develop. Training units are dumping pilots into the pools when possible, and front line units are building up to full or just over full strength (reserves = damaged aircraft). Special focus is being paid to 'repairing' aircraft factories and engine factories. In some cases this means building up supplies (because they consume 1000 points per day per type expanded). The idea is to build up the desired types of aircraft ASAP. Current production of obsolescent types was generally reduced in favor of optimum types - except where obsolescent types were considered worthy of returning to production (see the Ki-32, technically out of production; unsung, it actually was built in greater numbers than the Ki-30 and better liked by its crews; in game terms it is also slightly more effective, with a bit more range and not subject to as much attrition because of how it is used). The inadequate Ki-48 and Ki-51s (due to too small a bomb load) are being turned into trainers when planes with better loads are available to replace them. While the Ki-27 is needed on the front line, none are being built, in favor of building several other types: Ki-43s, Ki-38s (an early Ki-45), Ki-33s (JAAF Claude's made more maneuverable to please the Army) as well as soon to begin production Ki-44s, Ki-65s (Me-109s) and Ki-45s. The Army is building Ki-49s to a limited extent, but is converting over to building the better armed Ki-80 variant for twin engine bombers, as well as the Ki-32 single engine bomber and a limited number of Ki-50 (Ju-88) twin engine dive bombers. A small number of Ki-68 four engine Liz bombers (JAAF versions of the G5N series) will also soon enter production - mainly for the heavy bomb load and good durability rather than for range or performance. Bombers are to be carefully used to break enemy ground units or wreak enemy air bases so the Army can keep its offensive power as long as possible. They are to be protected by fighters. While the Ki-65 (Me-109) has inadequate range for PTO operations, it is regarded as an outstanding short range defense fighter - particularly because it has armor. So it will be used on land to protect air bases. [The Navy intends a similar application to protect carriers at sea - using small carriers with Me-109s to protect the offensive big carriers.] The He-100 had better performance and also was armored, but the Me-109s can carry drop tanks and have greater firepower (two vice one 20 mm cannon), giving them a better exchange rate with the enemy. Production focus is on FIRST YEAR types - at the expense of later year types. The war must be won in the first year. There is a loss of efficiency when a factory converts to a different type (unless it is its planned upgrade). Nevertheless, planes in the first year can win the war, later year planes cannot.

The attached file amounts to an Axis Report After Combat.

The main screw up of the day was a failure to instruct the tankers to refuel Carrier
Division One - so they didn't! This will cost a second day of delay and permit most of the United States Fleet's survivors to go where well beyond detection range. Which is fine. The force is low on torpedoes - has sunk 75% of the battleships - and has only one gambit left before retiring to rearm, replace aircraft losses and repair damage (of which there is almost none) at Truk. That is to see if any enemy ships have gone to Tahiti, Samoa or Fiji - on a looping route returning to Truck?

Carrier Division Two is not quite to Wake yet. But a third ground unit left Kwajalein to perform the final (??) assault there. The South Seas Regiment was doing that chore for Hollandia - but now isn't needed - the tired aviation support company finally captured the hex today. The South Seas Regiment can continue to its historical objective of Rabaul.

Carrier Division Three found targets near NW New Guinea. It will retire to rearm at Shanghai, hoping to catch more ships in the South China Sea. Two divisions of light carriers and three surface forces had some success in hunting these vessels today. ALL the carriers and battleships need to retire on a port bigger than Level 5 - a problem in this area. Shanghai is the nearest point they can rearm. So all these forces will be out of action for some time.

The attack on the regulars of the Philippine Division backed by a battalion of Stuarts failed again. But the 14th Army main body made progress on the road South of Manila. The problem is, most of the enemy will make it into the city before it is invested - prolonging the siege.

The attack in Southern Malaya failed again but the tank unit is not harmed. We will reinforce it - better to fight in jungle than in Singapore. And the enemy cannot stand up to air power at this point. He has lost too much and is no longer contesting the air.

In spite of several successes in China - another RR LOC was opened to Kaifeng which now can become an air base - there was a bit of a disaster. The AVG send the Hell's Angels to dominate the air around Canton and CAF send bombers escorted by unique French fighters (twin engine planes with many forward guns and good durability) to hit the only functional air base in the area for Japan. This resulted in the first day of the war in which the Axis lost significantly more aircraft, and many of those in air combat! The nature of the AVG is hit an run - likely it will withdraw - but it is too expensive to let it do that repeatedly. That will require diverting rare Zeros to the theater (pending the arrival of the Ki-44s and possibly some Me-109s for base defense). This has strategic implications and is a complication all Allied players should consider: removing the AVG from China IS historical - but not ethical (China did pay for it after all) nor good strategy.

The attached file is in effect a Japanese Situation After Combat Report -
no moves have yet been entered into the file.

There was no "action" in the Central Pacific theatre because the Japanese
Carrier Division One had refueled. As well, air strikes didn't fly.

Carrier Division Two remains too far from Wake to engage in combat operations,
although recon photographs were taken by a modified Kate/Recon aircraft.
ALL 1941 scenarios start with the prototypes of this type, but only Japan Enhanced
Scenarios start with it in production. It is replaced by the recon version of the Val
in the spring of 1942.

Carrier Division Three struck Miri and Brunei - with devastating effect. Many Allied
ships were 'hiding' in them trying to avoid the slaughter in the South China Sea.
It was aided and abetted by two other divisions of light carriers as well as by three
surface action groups (not all of which found targets - there are not many left to find).

14th Army almost completed its march across the peninsula today - it will arrive
at the road junction SW of Manila tomorrow. At the moment three enemy units are in that hex.

Some success clearing the roads and railroads of Northern Malaya - this is always
a slow process because they do not interconnect well. A rear guard of two battalions at a critical junction (no name) was ejected today. This process is too slow, so a number of units and ships to move them are engaged in the processes needed to load for sea movement to Mersing. Air support units are now arriving in numbers in Northern Malaya, where two level 4 and two level 2 airfields are in service. Landings
scheduled at the three remaining points needed to gain a RR LOC to Bangkok. This was not very successful - only one of the shiploads landed a proper combat squad - so only one of the bases will fall tomorrow. This will delay the opening of that LOC by yet another day.

Several successes in China, but Hong Kong not only refused to fall, it cost more casualties than it took. As well, its AA defenses were able to shoot down some attackers. However, the area is now dominated by a large squadron of Zeros - but the AVG had fled the area.

Reinforcements are starting to arrive in numbers at Karor (Palau) and are about to arrive at Truk. This will turn both bases into staging areas for still more invasions. Mismanagement of unit movements cost a political point loss and damage due to partisan attack - this happens almost every day. One must review locations when moving units or one will not meet the garrison requirements.

Admiral Ozawa's Ichi Kiddo Butai sailed due East from Christmas Island.
While it is impossible to get beyond PBY range from there - it appears none
are present at all. Even if some transfer in, it can reach a distance so great
it is likely not to be detected. What might cause it to be detected is enemy
shipping passing relatively nearby, if there is any. [Japan has no track on
any Allied ships in the Central/South Pacific region]. So both to preserve
the number of sortees remaining, and to prevent sightings of search planes,
all aircraft are resting. No enemy search aircraft or ships were sighted today.
The options under consideration are (a) go with the plan to swing past
Tahiti, Samoa and Fiji in a looping return to Truk or, (b) because some fuel
is still available on the tankers, turn NE and hope to catch enemy ships outbound
from the US West Coast. The tankers remain near Christmas Island, where
it is possible they will be confused with the carrier force itself.

Admiral Yamaguchi's Ni Kiddo Butai conducted air strikes on Wake today.
This was simultaneous with landings of a third battalion sized force of naval
infantry. Not many aircraft flew, not much damage was done by them,
and the shock attack failed once again! Amazing. It is unclear how to
capture Wake, or why it is so unusually difficult in this campaign. Apparently
nobody told the Marines they had to surrender!

Admiral Yugumo's Shi Kiddo Butai is headed for Shanghai. Enemy ships
in the South China Sea generally are in hiding. A long range air strike from
Cam Rahn Bay vs the many ships at Miri failed to fly today. Most surface
forces are inbound for Cam Rahn to rearm, but the battleship force is also
headed for Shanghai - it is near the Southern end of the Formosa Strait now.
Battleships are not able to rearm anywhere in the South China Sea at this time.
But one surface force, which sailed yesterday, continues to head South toward
the NW corner of Borneo, on the assumption enemy ships will pass near there
as they try to escape the area. It is estimated numbers of enemy ships survived
the slaughter of the last several days in this area. Operational requirements,
damage, and the need to refuel and/or rearm dictate most of these operations
must be suspended. But possibly one more surface force will sail today to
engage in a follow up hunt for Allied ships fleeing the area. Note that both
CVL forces are retiring as well, being critically short of aviation sortees left.

The enemy appears to be "leaking" around the tank force in SW Malaya. Worse,
in spite of major air support, the attack today went badly in terms of casualties
and disruption. So the force will return by primary road to Mersing, from which it
will then follow the infantry over the secondary road SW - mainly to achieve a
combined arms force. Fighting in jungle is always difficult. But this effort has
caused a general retreat from Northern and Central Malaya, where progress is
being made. A tiny airborne capture of undefended Taiping today means all
the units in strategic mode can now rail past the road bottlenecks of the North -
and a proper drive South over good roads can begin. The move South on the
Easter route is hampered by it only being a railroad/trail - and so the units going
that way must make slow progress down the trail. For that reason some units
are moving by sea - the rest by railroad to the West Coast. Some units
are already withdrawing by rail to the NE to join the rest of 15th Army. These
units WERE historically part of 15th Army but participated in initial landings.
All but one location on the RR LOC to Bangkok fell today. The last undefended
location will fall tomorrow, permitting their return as well as easing the problem
of supply. Singora is not in very good shape supply wise. But Kota Bahru has
ample after a week of landings. As more and more location fall in Malaya,
the area will also begin to provide locally generated supply support for the invasion.
But it remains that the force which can be 'fed' is limited. This is why having
a disorganized enemy suffering attrition over time is important. If all forces in Malaya
had retired on Singapore undamaged, it might hold out for a long time.

The 14th Army completed its crossing of Luzon just South of Manila. Only one
enemy unit remains - presumable the one undamaged division of the Southern
Corps. A shock attempt will be attempted tomorrow. This should effectively
destroy that unit as a fighting force, and it is quite likely to surrender. Tactical
bombers moved forward from Formosa to NW Luzon will support the attack.

The enemy advanced in South China, challenging the move NW from Canton.
And Hong Kong shows no sign of surrender either. The last large formation
available is moving to reinforce the attack by primary road from Hong Kong.
It was a mistake to send it NW, assuming it wasn't needed. In Central and
North China the enemy is either on the run or harassing LOC in attempts to slow
down the general route. But the forces arriving in theater should prove overwhelming.
The one problem is that the AVG appears to be operating in China (as it really
did during this early period). This means Zeros must be sent. One squadron was
sent yesterday to Canton. But others are needed farther North - and I found none
to send. The biggest setback of the day was the failure of the assault on the army group defending the approaches to Changsha: the attack was stopped cold with
significant casualties, due to the combination of defensive terrain and numbers
of defenders. Changsha, as usual, isn't going to be easy to capture. [The historical
First Battle of Changsha was lost before this campaign began. The historical
Second Battle of Changsha was lost during this period of time. It was not easy
to capture historically.] But we intend to flank the city from the East and South,
and possibly from the Northwest as well, threatening its LOC.

[In honor of the inventor of modern carrier operational methods.
The Kiddo Butai was his concept. Japanese air organization was
also very sophisticated because of his organizational concepts.
Captain Fujita, at Pearl Harbor, was in effect a Wing Commander,
boss of a combined set of six air groups. He flew with the first
wave to control the operation, and remained until the last fighters
were able to assemble - so he could lead them back to the ships.
His Kate could navigate and use radio equipment - the Zero
could do neither at that time.]

In this test, Vice Admiral Ozawa's Ichi Kiddo Butai is at a position
almost due East of Malden Island, well SE of Christmas Island (Pacific),
and well NE of Tahiti. Evaluation the tactical situation, I rejected moving
toward San Diego/LA in spite of the high probability it would cause
interception of laden ships with supplies, fuel, ground units and air units.
It might also intercept the single carrier known to start on the West
Coast. [It it is coming, it has very few escorts.] However, we are
far from base, and have disconnected from our tanker train as an operational
deception. We have only torpedoes enough for one flight on one carrier.
And, having sunk four battleships headed South from Hawaii, it seems very
likely the remaining two may be on the same vector.] As well, the pre-war
plan called for a swing past Tahiti, Samoa and Fiji on a round robin return
to Truk. More tankers have already left Truk - in three divisions - on a vector
permitting refueling if this plan is followed. So I elected to sail SW from
yesterday's position (11 hexes East of Christmas Island) on a vector putting
us in optimum Val range (i.e. 3 hexes) of Tahiti. We sailed at fleet speed -
slightly faster than some Allied ships, slightly slower than others, but in the
main the same 8 hexes a day as most Allied transport vessels and warships
cruise at. Again we operated with all carrier aircraft resting - never mind
all had zero fatigue. This both preserves remaining sortees and prevents
disclosure of the force because an aircraft is sighted. However, three elements
of floatplanes were set to perform a 3 hex range naval search around the
task force - to prevent unpleasant surprises (such as running onto a division
of battleships well supported by cruisers and destroyers). Reaction is set to
zero - we are to stay on course. We seem to be either in an empty sea,
or sailing in position with invisible enemy formations in various directions -
generally moving with the flow. The tanker force split into two parts - one
tanker had a cruising speed of 3 (6 hexes per day) vice 4 - so she and one
destroyer broke off - trailing the rest - creating the impression of two forces -
a larger one and a smaller one - at a range (6 and 7 hexes from Palmyra
and Christmas Islands) LIKELY to report contact but UNLIKELY to generate
an accurate report. I hope these ships are detected and interpreted to
be the carriers and tankers retiring on Kwajalein Island, the nearest Japanese
base (not the nearest Japanese possession). Because the carriers were in the
same hex as the tankers (refueling) when they struck two days ago, it is easy
to reason they may still be near each other. But they are not. I always create
the possibility of confusion among the foe. The goal here is to arrive in
Tahiti after the battleships do (if they went that way) and/or about the time
Halsey's carriers do (if they headed that way after the strike at Tarawa) -
without warning. The enemy might be willing to sprint to escape - but so
far from base - and with limited fuel - I am not. We only get one good strike
with torpedoes, and two or three without (depending on luck and casualties).
Once the enemy understands where we are, he will scatter and evade if needs
be to guarantee the survival of most target vessels.

Rear Admiral Yamaguchi's Ni Kiddo Butai struck at Wake again. The naval
infantry, in poor shape, continued to land and shock attacked again. Tone
(a 15 gun CL in this scenario, rather than either a 12 gun CL - as she
was designed to be - or an 8 gun CA - as she was built; the standardized
production program of this scenario caused her to be a repeat Mogami type,
which originally were 15 gun CLs) was detached to bombard the island.
All six bomber squadrons were set to attack ground targets as well. This time
it worked - and the island fell at last! Yamaguchi also refueled. Tomorrow
either the entire force will retire on Truk - or Tone and any damaged ships
or ships low on aircraft will retire and the rest will head SE to back up Yamaguchi.
Regardless, the tankers are already moving in that direction. Two more divisions
of tankers are moving to join this tanker formation - such that operational options
for the striking forces in the South Seas (which for Japan means anything "South"
of Japan) are maximized.

Vice Admiral Nagumo's San Kiddo Butai ran out of fuel and so is retiring on Cam
Rahn Bay. Both CVL groups are as well - Shi Kiddo Butai will arrive tomorrow -
but Go Kiddo Butai arrived today - taking on two replacement zeros (but no Vals
were available; fortunately every ship has at least its full compliment of Vals,
sometimes with two damaged, or full plus a spare or two). It appears the CVLs
are able to regenerate sortees at a Level 5 port; we will see about the CVs.
But the battleships surely cannot. Two are with Nagumo's force, four more
are passing Taiwan en route to Shanghai (crossing a gauntlet of submarines
in the Strait). A combined CVL force may be able to support operations in the SRA
until Nagumo's force and the main battleship force are able to refuel, rearm,
repair and return. But for now, the carriers will need to take on fuel (even if they
cannot rearm with torpedoes and sortees) and then retire on Shanghai as well -
probably. Or at least their heavy escorts (Nagato and Mutsu) will.

14th Army's shock attack at Batangas (SW of Manila) was a success. But its
result was unique! The tank units on both sides moved to the SE! The Philippine
Army infantry, however, retreated into Manila. I have never seen a split retreat
before, nor a persuit which did not follow the larger enemy unit retreating. Now
14th Army can invest Manila. Unfortunately, recon says there are 65,000 defenders
in the city - and no doubt more will arrive in the approximately three days it will take
to march in. So it may be capture of the city will take a while, which wasn't the plan.
But the threat to Manila caused the rest of the island to be abandoned. A reinforced
regiment arriving at Linguyan City today found no defenders at all!

25th Army's operation amounted to moping up and reorganizing in Northern Malaya. In the South, three units managed to walk into Johore Bahru. This may at last cut
the LOC to Singapore. The 2nd Tank Division (more properly 'glorified tank brigade' in that it has only four battalions of tanks) needs another day to reach Mersing, and
then several days to cross the secondary road to back up the infantry at Johore Bahru. But lots of infantry will walk in during that time, creating the opportunity for a combined arms battle in that hex. Some of the troops in the North are transiting by
sea to join the fight. Other reinforcements intended for the North or even Burma
are also en route from points North. The enemy, without an air force in this area,
will hopefully be defeated in detail by combined ground and air assault, with the few units able to reach Singapore hopefully in poor shape to defend it.

16th Army made progress on Mindinao, in three different places. Reinforcements
continue to land, including air units (which need time to repair up their planes).
One enemy regiment was driven to the NE yesterday - so its parent division will
not be able to form at all. Once Mindinao is secure, this force will 'liberate' the Visaya's - defended by two divisions reinforced by two new regiments of Philippine Constabulary which arrived yesterday. But this army also is operating farther South -
landing a "division-brigade" in the minor port just SW of Manado (similar to the 85th Brigade, this is a glorified infantry group formed as three two battalion regiments with a single ad hoc battalion of artillery - that formed from the three regimental gun companies of the regiments) and a tiny element of a proper Class B division landed at Kao, Helmahera Island. This is a "Japanese Secret Base" - a major port and airfield complex built up from essentially nothing during the historical war. It was nicknamed
"little Tokyo" by the locals, because it was so dominated by Japanese signs and businesses. It was never captured - it was by passed after its airfield was neutralized - because it would be very expensive to capture. One APD load of troops landed today - a small base force is following to start building up the port and airfield - while the APD will reload the assault troops and follow the division as its reinforcement. The rest of the 4th Draft B (Daiyon) Division is about to land near Amboina. Both these landings are classic IJA - avoid direct assault landings if it is possible to land near the objective, assemble properly, and then march in tactical order for the assault.

15th Army has begun its move on Burma. The divided partial 55th Division is advancing on two fronts - from the South and from the "middle" of Thailand - over
traditional trail trading routes. [A regiment of this division is in Malaya at the moment, but will soon rail North to join it.] 33rd division is about two days from Bangkok on a convoy. The Imperial Guards Division - nominally of 25th Army - is at Kampong Soam and may joint 15th Army if not required in the battle for Johore Bahru/Singapore. Air support units are operating at four bases in Thailand, and the first Zero sweep of Rangoon is reported below.

Units in South China were resting, reforming today as the 104th Semi-Motorized Division completed its move into Hong Kong - which likely will fall tomorrow under the weight of air strikes and the stronger and rested assault force. SE China might
be said to be involved in exploitation and march to contact EXCEPT that the 39th Division was badly mauled by a rare, Chinese Army assault! It was moving
East to clear the RR LOC when an entire army appeared in its rear. Today, that army,
supported by CAF, attacked with effect, ejecting the division and putting a firm
grip on the E-W RR LOC vital to 'feeding' Nanchang. Nanchang air base is not
in use and the many troops in the area are consuming supplies as fast or faster
than they are landed (by river vessels). Nanchang and its road/rail lines is the jumping off point for the planned flank attack on Changsha. The stopping of the 'frontal drive' from Wuhan yesterday makes this flank attack important. But it appears more time is needed to secure the primary road and RR LOC to Nanchang first.
The OFFENSIVE use of CAF - supported by the AVG - is unpleasant and may require commitment of still more high value fighters to China. Already Ki-43s,
the pre-production squadron of Ki-45s, and a large Zero squadron have been sent to the South. Now it appears it will be impractical to operate in Central and perhaps even in North China without similar units. As Mifune pointed out by telephone - all the units and planes Japan sends to China (or does not remove from China as was done to support the SRA offensive) "cannot be used in the SRA." His intent to make
China a problem for the SRA offensive appears to be working. China should not
be underestimated as an Allied theater early in the war - at least not in RHS where
China has almost all its historical units and special units.

The North China area also saw a less successful Chinese shock attack. It was a bit of a trap - three units had marched into a hex newly captured by a unit of Chinese 'puppet' troops - i.e. not high quality. But unknown to the Allies, the 116th Draft B Division marched into the hex just in time to meet the attack. So instead of success, it was a bit of a disaster. Otherwise, the Chinese had some success cutting LOC,
but generally were losing the fight for the supply lines needed to feed the big battle brewing for the strong positions around Chengchow. Still farther North there is
a problem with supply. Not because China does not generate a great deal of local supply in RHS - it does. But because too many troops have arrived by railroad,
and also because the front lines have limited lines of communication. Significant
restrictions on how many troops may be sent are being imposed by logistical limitations. And, unlike in many of the areas of the map served by the sea (or by
rivers), much of this area is both far from the sea and served by the Yellow River -
which is not connected to the sea below Kaifeng (because the KMT broke the dykes before the Pacific War began), and also much of that river is frozen in Winter.
The normal WITP/AE trick of sending supply by ship doesn't work in this area (except along the coast). One reason I sent too many troops was to test the logistical limits of the land LOC - and I am not unhappy they are fairly severe. It varies of course - depending on if you have a major or minor railroad, a major or minor road or trail along the LOC, and what small local supply sources may exist near the front. There is also a range of situations. Often a reasonable force may fight - but must pause for a day or two to collect the necessary supplies. But send too many units and there is never enough for an effective attack.

A different problem is the garrison rule. RHS mainly depends on locations demanding a garrison. If you fail to note the local requirement, you will experience 'partisan attacks' damaging local infrastructure and loss of a victory point for every such instance. That makes it hard to achieve the 4:1 VP ratio needed to win. Which is good. I like the fact it is hard not to trip over this issue.

Attached is the Japanese Situation After Combat Report

To get a complete sense of what happened, you MUST read BOTH Axis
and Allied reports. Also - with the Allies - you get to run a replay of the action.
[Note - this is for those getting reports by email rather than in the Forum AAR]
Although I build the Japanese turn, and serve as data entry person for the
Allies, what is reported for each side is ENTIRELY based on what each side
can see in its displays and report histories. Mifune, designer of the scenario,
is not able at present to enter data for a turn. I, who built a playable version of
this scenario using his design, am interested in data analysis from both sides
to catch eratta and possibly improve the data set. Part of the point of a simulation
is to let the model report outcomes in the context of inputs from both sides made with imperfect information. I always operate based on the display information and a probabilistic evaluation of that data, and in the case of the Allies, also inside the operational orders Mifune has approved. It also helps that we are both US Navy veterans and students of history who agree on virtually every concept. Most of the time, I know before I ask what he is going to say - because it is going to be what I would have said on my own! And surprisingly often I do NOT know what the outcome is going to be. Certainly that applies today to the actions at and near Tahiti Nui.

It is purely a result of decisions made at different times by different sides that the USN carriers (under Halsey) arrived at Tahiti on the very day that the IJN carriers
(under Ozawa) arrived at their striking position three hexes to the NE of it. Neither side had a track on any enemy task forces in the region, so both tactical decision sets were made blind, on general principles and the respective doctrines of both sides. I will describe the Allied choices in the Allied thread. The Axis were pretty sure there would be ships at and near Tahiti - indeed there are too many to engage!
But it was not clear what would be at the port, or what would be near it? In theory the Saratoga could have had time to be there or nearby in addition to Lexington and Enterprise. And in theory, the two remaining battleships of the United States Fleet, Arizona and Pennsylvania, might be there or nearby as well. To that add numbers of empty and laden transports, tankers and support vessels. Whatever was present, it was intended to detect them using naval search from aircraft, and to engage targets of opportunity. Five of six IJN bomber squadrons were set to use bombs - only one Kate squadron, down to 18 machines, had enough torpedoes to attempt a torpedo attack. But just in case a suitable target appeared, that squadron was set to use them. In the last two carrier strikes, Kates sank two battleships in each, using torpedoes. Earlier, Kates were credited with one battkeship at the start of the war - a submarine was credited with the other. So I knew the torpedo bombers could fly.

The tactical situation was that the Japanese task force arrived at its intended point WITHOUT running into anything (somewhat amazing given all the Allied task forces around, including local ones). They detected many ships - but not the battleships or the other warships in formation with them (or the report was so garbled it isn't obvious which one it is?). But they did detect two carriers in the port hex, in formation, at sea. So AI set them as the target. While the Japanese task force was at sea, it was also somewhat socked in by the only weather in the area, and that may have had an influence on what flew, just as the rule about being in a land hex probably affected the Allies (although, in the event, it did not stop a large and effective Allied strike). All five carriers took multiple bomb hits! But at this stage in the war, the US does not use AP bombs - so its larger thousand pound bombs didn't have the effect the Japanese 551 pound AP bombs on the Val's did. Somewhat surprisingly, the Kates failed to fly - with either bombs or torpedoes. The TBD-1's did fly - but none scored. So the outcome was entirely determined by bombs from dive bombers. The Japanese carriers, normally not very good at taking damage, all report they can conduct flight operations - although one of them is on fire! Neither US carrier is reported as sunk, either by the combat reports, or in the sunk ships list. But they DID fly AFTER taking their hits - so the Japanese must assume they remain operational as well. Based on the damage taken and the possibility of enemy air strikes, I intend to withdraw, first North, then NW. Another factor is that the sprint ran the destroyers critically short of fuel. The tankers will be set to meet the force in a couple of days. Whatever else is at Tahiti, we are afraid to raid it in the presence of enemy carriers able to mount such a powerful strike! Aircraft losses on both sides appear moderate.

The Second and Third Carrier Divisions are retiring to rearm and refuel. Both need several days to reach port. The only battleship Division operating as a surface action group DID reach Shanghai today AND DID rearm its heavy guns. The remaining undamaged CVLs will attempt to form a force at Cam Rhan Bay today.

14th Army is still moving into Manila. An attempt to wipe out the isolated tank battalion in Southern Luzon failed, but did batter it badly. Units are moving to contact in Northern Luzon in five different places.

25th Army captured Georgetown and otherwise is moving to contact along both rail lines - only the one in the West having a good road along it. Other units are moving forward to Johore Bharu. The attempt to cut off retreat into Singapore essentially has failed - but the process did collapse the defenses of Malaya and badly damage many units - so it was probably worth the effort.

15th Army is marching into Burma on two of the four possible trail routes - both leading to the Moulmein area. About 2/3 of one division is involved. But two more divisions are arriving at Bangkok by ship to back them up. Two more divisions are en route from Japan - one just leaving Hiroshima - the other halfway along its route.

16th Army is mopping up Mindinao and capturing the locations needed to march on Manado and Amboina. Minor landings have also occurred on Helmahera and New Guinea to build air bases.

The big event in the day was in China, near Chengchow, on the left of the Chengchow Line along the Yellow River. This was the first assault and it did not wait for the three infantry divisions, the Artillery Group, or a RR artillery unit marching in. So they will be a surprise when we cross the river at Loyang - threatening Chengchow with a land assault (instead of a river crossing). It was a surprising outcome for a first assault in good terrain against a fortified enemy. But there was massive air support for the attack. Most of the rest was mopping up and/or movement to contact. The first major convoy from what we call Port Arthur (Japanese call it Ryujun) got past the narrows near North Korea - outbound for the South Seas mainly with units assigned to the SRA before the war began.

Attached is the Japanese Situation After Combat Report

Carrier Division One went through a decision process similar to Nagumo's in the historical battle of Hawaii: reasoning that having sunk six of eight battleships of the United States Fleet plus achieving serious damage on both of the carriers known
to be in the Central Pacific, and in the context that Kaga and Musashi have moderate damage as well as a severe shortage of aircraft sortees and torpedoes, I decided to retire to the North today - and then to the NE. I directed the tankers to turn around, combine up again (one tanker and one DD had detached due to temporary damage causing a speed problem), to refuel in about two days time. We must refuel the destroyers tomorrow and that means the carriers will lack the fuel to return to base unless refueled. I put up a good air search out 7 hexes using specialized recon planes, supported by 6, 5 and 3 hex range searches of other types, to insure any surface or carrier force near out task force was discovered and engaged. Plane losses were surprisingly low, as was air crew exhaustion. [Resting for three days
before the attack may have helped the latter.] Somewhat surprisingly NO enemy task groups were cited within seven hexes of the TF, which is now ten hexes due North of Tahiti, at the point the force is supposed to turn NW. I will consider a one carrier raid the day after tomorrow using (almost) undamaged Akagi if fuel state permits it. A return to Tahiti 2-3 days after the attack probably will find some kind of targets.

Carrier Division Two is one hex NE of Truk, so it will arrive tomorrow. It remains to be seen if it will regenerate sortees and torpedo counts?

Carrier Division Three is one day South of Hong Kong. It has problems: (1) it could not regenerate sortee's and torpedoes at Cam Rahn Bay; (2) it is not certain it can do that at Hong Kong; (c) the minefield at Hong Kong is not reported cleared yet.
Tomorrow Nagumo (commanding) must decide wether to run for Shanghai? or stand off and wait for the mines to be cleared? or to run in risking mine hits? In any case, it is going to be several days before this division is available for operations even if there is no damage needing repairs before it returns to sea.

Carrier Division Four, made from all the operational CVLs formerly in Divisions Four and Five plus all the undamaged escorts immediately available at Cam Rahn Bay,
is headed SE toward the SE end of the South China Sea. That was a mistake. The enemy seems to have stopped fleeing Westward over the top of Borneo in favor of
Eastward to pass through the Malacca Strait - or he is still hiding. Worse, chasing small, empty ships is not a very good option while two major amphibious operations are occurring in the Eastern NEI. Still worse, I came up with another possible mission - cover a move by 15th Army (see below) to invade Burma by sea. This force, which is impressive in spite of lacking the range or torpedo bombers of the larger carrier divisions, needs to re-evaluate its mission after logistical analysis of the situation in the area. There are generally too many troops and too few supplies, and too little fuel, in the South China Sea area - so likely we will move Eastward to cover the operations in the Eastern NEI as well as to exploit the fuel and supply reserves at and in a long supply train supporting Koror/Palau. 15th Army, jumping off very soon into Burma, and 25th Army, on Malaya, may have to limit their operations pending arrival of more supplies and fuel.

14th Army invested Manila in force. One problem is that the original force landing just one hex from that city is not only not with the main body, it was also not moving toward it! The enemy stole a march and left the beach hex, so it will take several days to link up the entire force. In the North, three hexes were invested (two undefended), the third finally making with the enemy at Angelus City [Clark Army Air Base]. Since the 'main body' of this force is a single, unsupported regiment, precisely how to proceed next needs to be carefully examined. As a sideshow, a tank brigade is chasing the survivors of a tank battalion in SE Luzon. I think the enemy is so weak he may be wiped out by attrition any day now.

16th Army is engaged in mopping up Mindinao. A major air base is being established at Davao. The enemy is generally being chased into the interior of the island, except one regiment, being driven off it to the NE. One regiment of the original force is now about to land on Luzon at Batamgas, the hex just vacated by 14th Army on its way into Manila - with the intention of rejoining the rest of its division (16th) which landed and is still at Infanta (east of Manila). 27th (Super) Brigade (called a Brigade Division in RHS so it can split into three two battalion regiments) just invested Manado, which it will assault tomorrow. All but one APD load of 4th Division captured Namlea today - one hex from Ambon - and needs several days to organize a crossing of that strait (to avoid a naval assault in the face of 15 cm guns defending the fortified port city).

25th Army finally caught up with the survivors of Kota Bahru in Eastern Malaya today,
and will reach the undefended enemy 'front' in Western Malaya tomorrow. As well, the tank force at Mersing will finally invest Johore Bahru tomorrow - too late to prevent most of the forces in the territory from reaching it to contest its capture or, worse,
escaping to Singapore. Submarines report engaging a stream of enemy ships moving from Singapore to Djambe on Sumatra. The enemy appears in wholesale retreat, without more than search planes of the Auxiliary Air Force active from Johore Bahru. The only other force extant is the survivors which retreated from Kuantan via
secondary road: they cannot have reached the far South yet. What slows us down in Central Malaya is only the time to march to the next town, and then capture it. [Railroads don't work until you capture both ends of a segment]. The JAAF Third Hiko Shudan and JNAF 22nd Koku Sentai are now almost entirely based in the territory. Both suffer from only modest amounts of supply, and the final reduction of Johore Bahru - which begins tomorrow - as well as Singapore - may be delayed while more are sent. The railroad connection with Thailand and Cambodia is useful for moving units, but the lack of large amounts of supply in either country does not permit it to do much to aid the supply situation. It appears Yamashita was correct - one must use a modest force and carefully feed it or risk being slowed down for logistical reasons. [I am pleased these limits are apparent in the mod.] One reason the Imperial Guard's Division was not sent to Malaya in this game is that it could not be fed if it was.

15th Army has begun crossing the frontier of Burma via two trails. This is a slow process. As well, it has only very limited supplies available to support both drives. A third trail option in the North is not being used because of a failure to build up supplies in the far North. The river system does not permit navigation that far so
naval supply isn't an option. But today a tank brigade landed at Bangkok which will go North to cross via that third route: a two battalion force, it moves fast through jungle (half a hex of the route has no trail, and the trails are so badly routed it may be better to ignore them partly - it isn't really a trade route - just local trade routes for each country that don't properly join; only a small force can be fed and only armor moves fast enough to matter - possibly arriving about the time the other two drives do). Two whole divisions arrived at Bangkok - Imperial Guards and 33rd Pack B Division (very large, with limited firepower, substituting mountain guns for field guns, and using pack trains instead of horse/mule carts or trucks for logistics - this is the largest sized division in terms of cost to feed in spite of relatively weak firepower because of very light artillery). Both divisions went into rest mode - not because either is tired (exhaustion = 2) - but for lack of supplies (15,000 tons at Bangkok, in addition to what is organic to the units). This caused me to consider sending one or both by sea (there are plenty of ships present) to Burma. That would best be done covered by the 4th Carrier Division. But a lack of tankers and a lack of supplies to support operations once landed probably means this plan needs to be delayed or abandoned. The only great value of these units is that they can rapidly air transit into Burma (except for heavy equipment, which must go by trail or sea) once we capture bases in that country. This is an ample exploitation force. As well, yet another division is in route from Japan (if it isn't diverted for logistical reasons). IF we can get enough supplies to Burma, we may end up with four divisions, enough to contemplate a drive on Lao Wing - to capture the Chinese aircraft factory there - or early operations into Bengal and Assam.

In South China, minesweepers are clearing Hong Kong where troops assigned to the SRA may be loaded for that theater and where carriers may be able to resupply fully. Neither may be practical: we already have too many troops in 15th and 25th Armies to feed pending commitment of more ships and supplies from Japan. So it may be better to reassign these troops to 23rd Army to clear out the Pearl River basin and either drive on "the corner" (where the RR turns 90 degrees) at Liu Chow or on Kukong. Both threaten the defense of Changsha in rear, possibly shortening the campaign for that key city. As well, Liu Chow offers one of only two primary
road routes to Chunking. This area has seen two successful enemy air operations (supported by a single squadron and a HQ flight of US fliers of the AVG). For that reason it has been assigned a Zero squadron, a Ki-43 squadron, and a Ki-38 squadron. [The Ki-38 is the precursor to the Ki-45. It has less powerful engines and only rifle caliber guns. But it remains a very unusual and deadly fighter - because it has high durability for a Japanese fighter combined with good forward firepower and reasonable maneuverability.] This may not be enough to cope with the AVG. It may be necessary to take out forward enemy airfields to prevent air raids.

East China saw a somewhat surprising capture of Chu Hsien, on the main RR West from Shanghai. Only the leading elements of 13th Army were at the front, the terrain favors defense and the enemy had ample numbers of troops to defend it in the area. Farther west, the situation at Nan Ch''ang remains poor due to no land LOC and because the 39th Semi Motorized Class B Division is still in bad shape after an enemy counter attack two days ago. In spite of that, it invested Ying Tan for the second time - but it is too disrupted to attempt to expel the enemy today.

The Yellow Sea Plain area saw many units investing enemy hexes in attempts to mop up the forces contesting the LOC, or defending the Yellow River Line at and near Chengchow. Our plan to capture the left flank of that line failed because the target city, Loyang, is a major urban hex (which I intend to show in art as my next project).
We must instead move around the right flank to avoid a shock attack across a river against a major force dug into a major urban hex at Chengchow itself. It will take several days to make that adjustment, as well as to clean out both LOC needed to support the battle for Chengchow and Loyang. The enemy appears to be massing for a real fight in this area. 16 enemy units have been spotted WITHOUT the use of dedicated recon aircraft for detailed reports along the "Yellow River Line" within
one hex of Chengchow. This drive, by 12th Army (which HQ has not yet been able to reach the front due to enemy units on the RR LOC), is the strongest in the empire - supported by major tank formations and the entire, assembled Artillery Group (minus units serving as divisional artillery in one or two cases). This is generally ideal tank country and a great place for combined arms, set piece operations. The idea is to rapidly capture it, with a view to (a) exploiting local industry; (b) a possible drive on Sian and (c) handing off assault troops for the drives on Changsha - which are to occur from at least two and possibly as many as four directions. Once Changsha falls, there is generally a collapse of the Chinese Army (both in games and IRL, see Ichi Go). The fight for Changsha itself cannot properly begin (although a one front drive has already occurred) until the Wuhan Area is connected by RR LOC to the rest of occupied China, and until the East - West RR LOC is captured - at least permitting two strong drives each protecting the other's flank

Just to the North of this area, a drive by 1st Army down a minor RR line failed to capture Huo Hsing, a mountain hex. This drive could converge with a primary one at Tungkwang - if we capture Loyang.

Fourth Fleet landed the Maizuru First and Third Combined SNLF next to Rabaul today. The South Seas Regiment is at sea, en-route to Kappa Kappa, to capture Port Moresby. 52nd Pack B Division and the Guards Mixed Brigade are at Truk for follow on operations. Many ships and large fuel and supply stocks are at Truk (or unloading there), and the Second Carrier Division arrives there tomorrow. Various operations are possible. The enemy is very weak in this area so early in the war. A captured air base at Buka Island is providing land based, fighter cover for the landing near Rabaul, in addition to local search operations. Only one enemy land unit is reported at Rabaul, possibly indicating an enemy withdrawal of most forces from the area.

Attached is the Japanese Situation After Combat Report
Somewhat depressed because of multiple hits by 1000 pound bombs on all three carriers yesterday, Admiral Ozawa's Carrier Division One (Ichi Kiddo Butai) took stock. Surprisingly the destroyers had refueled automatically and there were still zero ops points expended. The force was marginal but adequate for fuel and could refuel
today - to become topped off for the last time on this mission. The nearly undamaged Akagi could still make full speed and, the largest of all IJN carriers, had ample capacity for aircraft and adequate numbers of sortee's remaining. It could have taken on board a smaller Kate squadron (of 18 remaining planes) - but torpedo bombers are more likely to fly on a bomber mission and more planes (24 in her own
squadron) seemed a better bet - as well as the planes have more range with bombs in some cases. Squadrons were swapped between carriers to achieve the highest number of Zeros and Vals available, and a second search detachment of specialized Kate recon planes was taken on board. One detachment, with two planes, was assigned to photograph Tahiti (to get a good post battle report) with 50% rest,
the other detachment, with three planes, was set to 70% search, to range 7,
the maximum strike range of a bomb armed Kate. Zeros were restricted to range 7,
and Vals set to range 4 (so they could fly extended load if needs be). There was ZERO intelligence - although by mistake the recon Kates (with great range) had
been set to photograph Tahiti still - nothing appeared to be present. It was an attack
blind - and the move was case before Mifune decided what the Allies would/should do?

What happened was that the small task force detected numbers of enemy formations, but AI naturally went for the only one with a carrier reported in it. That turned out to be Lexington, IRL, but is listed in Japanese reports as Saratoga (a reasonable mistake). For some reason, except for the 20% search planes which did report,
no Kates flew strike missions at all. The decision to risk coming in optimum range for Vals meant that the lack of Kates was not critical. The Japanese assumption was that the Allies might be able to fly off one or both carriers. I feared that 252 kg AP bombs (and 100 kg bombs on the wings) might not be enough to sink the huge ex-battlecruiser. But I was mistaken - they sank her on the first pass. A second strike went after some of the many support ships in range, sinking two of them.

Rear Admiral Yamaguchi's Ni Kiddo Butai elected to stay at Truk. It is remarkably undamaged, and nearly at full strength in planes. [One carrier has one system point of damage, end of list. Escorts are similar - almost no damage except on Tone which took 6 inch hits off Wake - and she has only two system points.] But the Pacific is big, and the chances are being overstrength in aircraft is wise. One more day might well see damage reduced to zero. I upgraded several Zero and Val units on land to dump their planes into the pools - both this division and Division Three will be able to use them tomorrow or shortly thereafter. This division is planning to sweep the LOC
from West to East - hopefully causing the reinforcements to scatter, hide or otherwise delay - and maybe catching some of them. As well, enemy bases in the South Seas can be photographed, and the enemy will be unable to interfere with operations invading the Solomans and New Guinea - and I think - a build up on Howland Island - captured a few days ago - with its 5,000 foot runway (built for Amelia Earhart's round the world record attempt).

Vice Admiral Nagumo's San Kiddo Butai decided not to hang around waiting for mine clearing at Hong Kong and moved toward Shanghai to rearm. Naturally, Hong Kong became mine free during the day - but that was not certain to happen. Nor was it certain rearming could happen there. There is little fuel or supplies, and no naval support, so it might be some days before that would work even if it could. This division may be reorganized with the battleship squadron already at Shanghai - trading two of its 14 inch gun ships for the 16 inch gun Nagato's for example. The battleships rearmed but two still need to repair a bit. Both forces probably can sail in about 3-4 days. They may operate as a team, to cover major invasions of NEI,
Northern Australia, or even Burma. Options are under evaluation.

Captain Harada, Kaku, boss of the new Shi Kiddo Butai (he is so good I saw no reason to relieve him), got re-tasked. Instead of heading off enemy ships trying
to go around Borneo's Western side, he is headed East 'over the top' of Borneo - with
a new home base of Palau. He will try to catch any heading down the Malacca Strait, and/or cover forces reinforcing Manado, Ambon or Mindinao - if reports indicate a threat to any of them.

23rd Army, in Southern China, was re-assigned its "temporary" troops - nominally to go to the SRA after Hong Kong fell - because of logistic complications in the SRA. It must wait for more supplies to be able to use more troops. So the entire "temporary" force used to secure the area and reduce Hong Kong is now to go on an offensive in that area. The 51st Draft B Division - spread out across SE China - is to be recombined if possible. The future Hong Kong Garrison Unit - split into three elements - is also to meet and combine at Hong Kong - where the heavier artillery units will become local coast defense units. This force will attempt either to drive on the 'corner' at Liu Chow (where the Chinese main RR line makes a sharp 90 degree turn) or, if terrain and competent enemy tactics prevent that, move on Kukong and threaten the flank and rear of enemy forces protecting Changsha.

12th Army, in Eastern China, was forced to detrain, but is succeeding in clearing the area of units on the RR LOC. It is to join its main forces in an effort to capture Chengchow - on the other side of the Yellow River from Kaifeng. This is turning into a problem: a plan to encircle around the right was frustrated by the discovery that Loyang on that flank is a major urban hex; the plan to encircle around the left is frustrated by the discovery that the roads which normally would permit that move
are broken by flooding from the deliberately sabotaged Yellow River dikes! [That is
real - and structural on the RHS map More so now I actually realized I needed to
put a gaps in the roads - which the new pwhexe.dat file does.] 12th Army is, at this moment, the most powerful in IJA, strongly reinforced by the Artillery Group (with most of the heavy and medium guns in the entire Army) and two of the new (therefore
very green) tank "divisions" (glorified brigades with four tank battalions, but at least good combined arms support) as well. It should dominate the area - but may need a few days to cross the flooded area in order to cut the enemy LOC. A frontal attack across the Yellow River seems unwise.

First Army, on 12th Army's right flank, succeeded in capturing the one real mountain
hex in its way - and it may well reach the RR junction at Tungkwang before 12th Army does. It is a modest force - HQ, two class B divisions and a 15 cm artillery regiment - so as not to over-stress the minor RR it uses for a LOC. But because it takes days to move on to the next position, supplies are able to catch up enough to permit attacks,
and so far they have succeeded after one or two tries. This is my SOP - two (or even three) drives - forcing the enemy to defend on more than one front - and supporting the more successful at any given moment with airpower to achieve rapid results. Do not let the enemy feel safe to minimally man any segment of the front.

Farther North the mop up of units on the LOC continues, and the reduction of Sinn Sien is being slowly organized. Coming in from the North is a problem due to a river,
from the East there is only secondary road LOC, and from the South, inadequate
supplies to feed the drive down the minor RR of First Army and a different one
North on Sinn Sien. But it is just a matter of time until adequate force and supply breaks the (mountain) stronghold.

This report finds the three large carrier divisions in retirement,
or retired and rebuilding air groups, repairing damage, and planning future
operations. The Ichi Kiddo Butai re-united and is retiring on Howland
Island - a future central Pacific base - which is also the base of two replenishment
task forces and three transport task groups (bringing a security force,
a base force, fuel and floatplanes). Howland has a really major airfield (but no
facilities) - a peculiar legacy of Amelia Airhart's final trans-Pacific attempt.
It also is not on the mental map of those familiar with the Pacific War.
This force has just enough sortees to retire safely and is going to go to Truk - at least - and likely Japan for repairs on the carriers in shipyards. Ni Kiddo Butai will leave Truk on the 22nd - not quite at ideal strength but nearly so - missing a few Vals which refuse to join one squadron. It will head to Howland and consider how best to raid the SLOC - but be available to cover the retirement of the Ichi Kiddo Butai if needs be. [In theory the enemy can field two CVs right now.] San Kiddo Butai is one hex short of Shanghai and needs 2-4 days there to reorganize. It will shed its 16 inch gun battleships in favor of 14 inch gun ships - so the battleship force can be stronger with the (somewhat improved) Nagato's (they are slightly faster; they have the new standardized power plant and more power; they were historically lengthened to the right length at least - simply for maneuverability reasons).

Only the Shi (Four) Kiddo Butai saw action today. After 3-4 days of fruitless searching, it finally found the (tail end?) of the retreating enemy transports. In the Celebes Sea. A raid on Tarakan caught several tankers loading in port. Lack of contact caused the enemy to conclude it was safe to stop and load, I guess. It plans to raid Balikpapan tomorrow.

In both Malaya and Luzon the Japanese used airborne in a little known, but
historical way - to capture undefended locations, cut enemy LOC and facilitate
friendly LOC and local economic support. [Most of the Eastern NEI fell in this way in
airborne ops almost unknown to history. Similar ops occurred in 1942 and 1943 in
China, until the 'Raiding Training Regiment' was reformed into part of the First Glider Force - presumably the first regiment of that.] The enemy brigade in central Malaya is at risk of losing its ability to rail out because of the capture of Kuala Lumpar. The same is true of the Camp John Hay Column, because of the capture of Balinta Pass.
Reinforcments are being sent to reduce Manila - it cost too many casualties to reduce fortifications one level. In Malaya, troops are repositioning to attack at Johore Bharu - the first assault will go home tomorrow. As well, troops are rapidly moving down the West side - because of the capture of the other end of the rail line - strong forces will fan out from Kuala Lumpur in three directions - in the hope of generating significant local supply to support the siege of Singapore.

In South China, troops are moving to contact. In Central, North and East China, it is a fight for the LOC, and it is going fairly well - but frustrating for Japan. Cutting a line of secondary roads along the Yellow river - along the zone of flooding - really hampers the movement of troops. Divisions made little progress in the swamp!
So the offensive must use the major road routes - which is why Chiang broke the dikes. [The cost was literally millions of dead Chinese civilians, directly and by starvation.]

Ozawa's Ichi Kiddo Butai (more or less First Carrier Division)
is retiring - unable quite to link up with its tankers - both forces
headed to combine with outbound tankers - where all three
will exchange escorts. The more damaged carriers and
escorts then may head directly for Japan - with the lesser
damaged continuing to Truk.

Yamaguchi's Ni Kiddo Butai (Second Division) is outbound
from Truk more or less to the same area Nagumo is in (in case
he runs into trouble and with a hope of badly disrupting the SLOC).
The Val division left behind was unable to gain any more planes -
so it flew out understrength before the TF was out of range. It is
a function of logistics why the many spare Vals could not join.
The Val is proving to be up to its historical reputation as the workhorse
ship killer - it always flies and sinks even armored ships.

Nagumo's San Kiddo Butai (Third Division) is at Shanghai taking
on planes and refitting. Only one of the four carries has 2 system damage,
and two have none at all! The only problem is that the force may be ready
to sail before all the Val squadrons are up to strength.

The plan to swap battleships with the Heavy Division didn't work out - that
force is at sea already - headed to support 16th Army operations against
the Eastern NEI.

Captain Harada's Shi Kiddo Butai (Fourth Division) of CVL's is off
Balikpapan, where it conducted a successful raid. It has targets in sight
farther South in the Malacca Strait. It ran into many submarines in the
Strait as well. So it will not return as planned back up the Strait, but will
keep going South, raiding and evading subs at the same time. It is not
clear if it should head East into the Eastern NEI or West into the Java Sea?
But it will be one or the other.

16th Army is reinforcing Mindinao and Luzon with a view to reducing enemy
strongholds remaining on the island. It is having a problem reducing Manado
and has not yet invested Amboina - and so is requesting the Fourth Carrier
Division - but also is moving in long ranger bombers for land based air support.

25th Army conducted an attack at Johore Bahru and reduced fortifications at considerable cost. Fortified positions in jungle hexes are a problem. But not
as much as major urban hexes are - better to fight em here. Long range
naval bombers made a somewhat successful strike against ships evacuating troops
at Singapore. Many of the units in the North should rail forward tomorrow to
Kuala Lumpur - from which they will fan out to capture as much as possible
quickly.

15th Army is still moving through dense jungle trails to Burma. A reinforcement
just entering the South China Sea was diverted to help reduce Manila - there is
not enough supply to feed it in Thailand at this time anyway.

23rd Army began its quest to capture the Pearl River basin and capture a LOC to
either Liu Chow or Changsha. It captured Ch'ing Yuan with leading elements.

13th Army is moving along the road/RR LOC from Shanghai to Nanchang. Indications the enemy is withdrawing from the new 'front line hex' caused a delay
in attacking it by the one division already present - it is better to attack with odds.

11th Army's Western arm, at Changteh, failed to drive the enemy from the hex. That would threaten Changsha from its NW rear. The main body of the army is blocked
by strong forces defending the woods in front of the City. It remains a force in being
to tie down strong enemy units, threatening the city only two hexes away. But likely it
will be 13th Army attacking from the SE - with or without 23rd Army - that will force
Changsha to be lost. However, 34th Division at Changteh will be supported by 6th Division (the "Bright Division) - and so that might force the enemy to abandon
Changteh for lack of a LOC.

12th Army, at Kaifeng - by far the strongest Japanese force anywhere - is hung up in bad terrain (the flooded Yellow RIver basin) on its left, major urban hexes behind a river line on its right. It is using fast armored forces to flank the enemy concentrations in the Chengchow area.

The Mongol Garrison Army is preparing to assault Sinn Sien in the North - moving up
units and building up supplies. Still farther North, the NCPC Army is preparing to launch an offensive up the upper Yellow River valley.

There is a concern about enemy air force activity. Consideration is being given to depriving it of its forward bases.

Numbers of enemy submarines have shut down the sea LOC near Port Arthur.
Strong ASW forces are moving into the area to support land based air in cleaning these out. A junk was used to trick a sub into wasting a shot - something that doesn't always work.

The attachment amounts to an Axis Situation After Combat Report -
the turn before the next turn is entered.

The Combat Reports below are those for the Axis and differ in some details from a similar one for the Allies (which is in the next mailing).

Carrier Division One refueled for the last time, and split. Akagi, Kirishima, and relatively undamaged escorts headed for Truk. The damaged carriers and more damaged escorts headed for Yokosuka/Yokohama. The tankers with a division of slightly damaged destroyers are returning to Truk, but will drop their remaining fuel at Kwajalein. The second replenishment TF is going to meet the Akagi Group tomorrow, and follow it. The carries can protect the laden tankers and, if they get a mission, refuel from them. Ideally Akagi will return to Truk without refueling again. In a few days the tankers will take position off Carrier Division Two - which is outbound
from Truk. It is two days out of Truk and it will take over the South Pacific LOC
Offensive in about three days.

Carrier Division Three arrived at Shanghai and went into port. It needs at least three days to repair all damage on all ships. Most squadrons are already overstrength - full strength plus spares. But one Zero squadron had to fly to Nanking to be able to rebuild - it will rejoin the force when it sails - and may serve in other roles until then.
Carrier Division Three may cover operations in the NEI or the Indian Ocean, depending on the situation in about a week.

Battle Division One sailed prematurely, not waiting two swap 14 inch gun armed ships for Nagato and Mutsu. It is going to support operations in the Eastern NEI and possibly then in the Solomans/New Guinea/Australia area.

Miri fell to the first assault. Follow on forces to build up the base are already en route.
They will arrive in 32 hours.

An SNLF landed at Sorosgon at the Southern tip of Luzon. Farther North, an enemy tank battalion was finally wiped out. Luzon is being systematically captured to provide as many local supplies as possible to the invasion forces. 21st and 43rd Divisions are landing at Batangas, one hex SW of Manila. 54th Division arrived at San Fernanco today - a mistake. Tomorrow it will land at the next hex South, at Linguyan, one hex from Clark AAB. It will then move on Manila to help with the coup de grace.

In Malaya, 25th Army's forward force, at Johore Bahru, decided to wait for reinforcements, already moving into the hex, and to get rid of one unit which has lost
too many rifle squads. Bombers concentrated on an isolated base force and brigade at Mersing, with great effect, while many bomber units rested to recover for the next attack. Another airborne landing at Kuala Lipis cut off the one brigade still in Central Malaya. And five regiments moved by RR to Kuala Lumpar, from which point they will fan out in three directions. An airborne element which captured the city managed to rail out and reach the forward operating base of Kota Bahru. A larger, Army airborne force (in effect two battalions) is flying in as well. It is strung out all the way from Kure to Formosa to Indochina and Kota Bahru, using a line of air transport bases as well as the main RR of Annam and CoChin China. It is planned for Palembang and may attempt a landing in that area once Singapore falls. There was intense enemy submarine activity between Singapore and the Port of Djambe, which appears to be the place evacuation transports go from Singapore.

In Burma, regiments and battalions are advancing on two axis, using secondary roads, both converging in the Moulmein/Ye area. A third axis, in the far North, will begin passing a (double speed) armor unit tomorrow - it railed in to Chiang Mai today. That route mostly has secondary road, but also a gap with no road or trail.
The RTAF is being reorganized and repairing up aircraft (all its aviation assets are mysteriously down when they appear - reflecting the complicated situation which caused the nationalist leader to side with Japan in spite of general opposition by most of the military). Other Japanese air units are flying in and railing in, to exploit bases with newly arrived Japanese base forces and/or newly activated Thai base forces. Two powerful divisions are at Bangkok, which can barely feed them, ready to airlift once advance airfields are captured. If shipping and covering forces can be found,
one of those divisions may sail around Malaya to land in Southern Burma and/or the Andaman Islands.

In Southern and SE China, forces are generally retreating to cover the LOC to the Changsha-Nanning rail/road corredor using favorable defensive terrain. A planned air offensive, which might have begun today, was delayed because not one recon flight flew over potential enemy bases. More recon planes and bombers were assigned to this mission, and several were moved to bases closer to their targets - long range missions are less likely to fly (due to weather???). In Eastern and Northern China units are generally moving to contest favorable LOC defending the Yellow River Line and Sinn Sien. One unit in the far West, which unexpectedly did a shock attack yesterday (due to crossing a river) was badly mauled by an enemy counter-attack supported by massive airpower. The Changsha airfields were struck repeatedly, with effect, with 66% airfield damage reported.

The attachment amounts to an Axis Situation After Combat Report -
the turn before the next turn is entered.

The Combat Reports below are those for the Axis and differ in some details from a similar one for the Allies (which is in the next mailing).

Carrier Division One refueled for the last time, and split. Akagi, Kirishima, and relatively undamaged escorts headed for Truk. The damaged carriers and more damaged escorts headed for Yokosuka/Yokohama. The tankers with a division of slightly damaged destroyers are returning to Truk, but will drop their remaining fuel at Kwajalein. The second replenishment TF is going to meet the Akagi Group tomorrow, and follow it. The carries can protect the laden tankers and, if they get a mission, refuel from them. Ideally Akagi will return to Truk without refueling again. In a few days the tankers will take position off Carrier Division Two - which is outbound
from Truk. It is two days out of Truk and it will take over the South Pacific LOC
Offensive in about three days.

Carrier Division Three arrived at Shanghai and went into port. It needs at least three days to repair all damage on all ships. Most squadrons are already overstrength - full strength plus spares. But one Zero squadron had to fly to Nanking to be able to rebuild - it will rejoin the force when it sails - and may serve in other roles until then.
Carrier Division Three may cover operations in the NEI or the Indian Ocean, depending on the situation in about a week.

Battle Division One sailed prematurely, not waiting two swap 14 inch gun armed ships for Nagato and Mutsu. It is going to support operations in the Eastern NEI and possibly then in the Solomans/New Guinea/Australia area.

Miri fell to the first assault. Follow on forces to build up the base are already en route.
They will arrive in 32 hours.

An SNLF landed at Sorosgon at the Southern tip of Luzon. Farther North, an enemy tank battalion was finally wiped out. Luzon is being systematically captured to provide as many local supplies as possible to the invasion forces. 21st and 43rd Divisions are landing at Batangas, one hex SW of Manila. 54th Division arrived at San Fernanco today - a mistake. Tomorrow it will land at the next hex South, at Linguyan, one hex from Clark AAB. It will then move on Manila to help with the coup de grace.

In Malaya, 25th Army's forward force, at Johore Bahru, decided to wait for reinforcements, already moving into the hex, and to get rid of one unit which has lost
too many rifle squads. Bombers concentrated on an isolated base force and brigade at Mersing, with great effect, while many bomber units rested to recover for the next attack. Another airborne landing at Kuala Lipis cut off the one brigade still in Central Malaya. And five regiments moved by RR to Kuala Lumpar, from which point they will fan out in three directions. An airborne element which captured the city managed to rail out and reach the forward operating base of Kota Bahru. A larger, Army airborne force (in effect two battalions) is flying in as well. It is strung out all the way from Kure to Formosa to Indochina and Kota Bahru, using a line of air transport bases as well as the main RR of Annam and CoChin China. It is planned for Palembang and may attempt a landing in that area once Singapore falls. There was intense enemy submarine activity between Singapore and the Port of Djambe, which appears to be the place evacuation transports go from Singapore.

In Burma, regiments and battalions are advancing on two axis, using secondary roads, both converging in the Moulmein/Ye area. A third axis, in the far North, will begin passing a (double speed) armor unit tomorrow - it railed in to Chiang Mai today. That route mostly has secondary road, but also a gap with no road or trail.
The RTAF is being reorganized and repairing up aircraft (all its aviation assets are mysteriously down when they appear - reflecting the complicated situation which caused the nationalist leader to side with Japan in spite of general opposition by most of the military). Other Japanese air units are flying in and railing in, to exploit bases with newly arrived Japanese base forces and/or newly activated Thai base forces. Two powerful divisions are at Bangkok, which can barely feed them, ready to airlift once advance airfields are captured. If shipping and covering forces can be found,
one of those divisions may sail around Malaya to land in Southern Burma and/or the Andaman Islands.

In Southern and SE China, forces are generally retreating to cover the LOC to the Changsha-Nanning rail/road corredor using favorable defensive terrain. A planned air offensive, which might have begun today, was delayed because not one recon flight flew over potential enemy bases. More recon planes and bombers were assigned to this mission, and several were moved to bases closer to their targets - long range missions are less likely to fly (due to weather???). In Eastern and Northern China units are generally moving to contest favorable LOC defending the Yellow River Line and Sinn Sien. One unit in the far West, which unexpectedly did a shock attack yesterday (due to crossing a river) was badly mauled by an enemy counter-attack supported by massive airpower. The Changsha airfields were struck repeatedly, with effect, with 66% airfield damage reported.
