Change the Prep on all those units marching from Bataan and those in Manila to their next target. Every little bit helps.
One thing I found useful was to set units prepping for fake target to try to throw off Allied Signet. Depending on where you really want to go during the next 6 months (Oz, India, Nor Pac, etc) you can pick something else to try to make him divert forces. For example, if you have plans to invade the Aleutians and no plans to invade Western Oz, find restricted units and set their target to logical bases in Western Oz. Signet will find these and might help mask your other plans. It might force him to send units to this area which might help weaken another area. I did this where Oz was my intended target and I had no plans for India. This had the unfortunate side affect of having a strong Allied army in India which helped him conquer Burma. This is why I would suggest Oz or New Zealand or the area around Suva instead of India as a deception location. I would not use the Aleutians as deception either since a strong army at your northern boarder is not much fun either.
That all sounds like good advice. I wonder how badly I can confuse Brian with tricks like that. Very good.
New moves from Brian, there was an ASW attack on the east side of Pearl with the Allied ships headed east. I'm thinking I've
stumbled upon a trip to the west coast with several of the damaged ships from the Pearl strike. I think this announcement of the
sinking of a BB is just fog of war. I don't think I hit anything with my torpedoes and it's a false report. I think maybe I should tail them
with the sub just to see if I can get another chance to hit something.
Did you ever suddenly realize that you're dead and nobody is telling you?
