Std - A, B, C, D, E Class xAKs - If I remember right, it's been a long time since I played stock based PBEM, you can convert the A, B, C to small TKs in June. I would do so for all!! They are great for moving fuel and oil out of your smaller ports to larger ports were the ocean going TKs can take over along with moving it forward to smaller ports in the front lines. Make a note of this.
I've already entered the image above listing the names of the ships I need to convert into
my todo list and posted in the AAR to remind me. It's an excellent idea.
Philippine Archipelago - Once you take all these islands, you will find that you have 4 small Resource producing bases with size 2 ports (12k max). You will need to form 4 small CS Convoys made up of four Gozan Class xAKs and two Kiso Class PB to pick up the Resources and transport them to Naga (expand to size 4 Port). These TFs just fit in a size 2 port. Home port is the small bases with Naga as destination and Full Refuel in effect so they get their fuel from Naga. The Resource will migrate to Manila and later you can transport to Japan.
I've already done landings at the RES centers and am pulling RES out of one of them but
I can't remember the name of it right now. I'm loading the second load right now.
Miri - You can transport the fuel from there in the small 1250 capacity TKs to CRB, Manila, and over to Babeldoab. If you plan to repair the oil and refinery you may want to use some of the Std TKs that you convert.
Yeah, great idea. I'm pulling fuel out of Miri with with little TK's and a little bit of
oil as well. I need to go easy on the oil because there's not much of an excess.
More 'pearls of wisdom' to follow.
And they will all be received with appreciation.
