Feb 20-22, 1942:

ABDA Com:

- Palembang invaded by 3 Japanese regiments. I have emptied Sumatra and flown everything to Koepang with float planes.
- Java invaded by 2 Japanese divisions. Merak and Kaljidati fall. I'll make a stand at Buitenzog, taking advantage of the mountains defensive bonus.
- Succesful CAP trap at Semarang, 15 Vals shot down.

SE Asia:
- A good day in the air space over Rangoon. 14 Zeros shot down, 11 friendly fighters lost.
- Of the 200.000 tons of supplies that were unloaded in this week, only 10.000 flowed into China. Most of it ended up back to India.

China:
- My shock attack at Hengyang failed because of Japanese reinforcements coming from Singyang.
- New plan: abandon Changsha to the enemy, pull everyone back and form a MLR in the forest-rough hexes north of Chansha and west of Hengyang.
- South of Yenan, Japan makes progress toward Sian, but I still hold the hex south of Yenan, blocking the enemy LOC.
- 3 Japanese regiments take Nigsia (east of Lanchow).

10K supply to China is a boon.

Keep up the good work!

Cheers!

I 'd like your opinions on the following screenshot. Are these losses good for me considering it's February 1942?


Also, China. New MLR will be set up in approx two weeks:

Try using stockpiling option at Rangoon and max supply. Then, in few days end it and do same base by base all the way into China. Take into account the roads and trails as it moves along less than daily.

Those losses appear to be excellent for February.

A sign of a very aggressive defense.

The P40 losses will be impossible to sustain though as the '42 pools are atrocious.

'42 is a balancing act for the Allies.

The aggressiveness of the defense has to be balanced against the limited airframe pools.

Too aggressive and your loss rates may preclude having sufficiently robust pools to be able to go over to the offensive in late '42.

You have to be very judicious about where to fight and how long to sustain the effort.

The arrival of the P40K with 65 airframes per month is really the horizon for the consideration of offensive operations.

I hear you.

Now that there are no supply convoys running to Rangoon, I'll pull back my battered air groups and rebuild them at Calcutta and Chittagong. I have 400 fighters left in the theater and by the end of March it will grow to 500.

I hope to have them ready for a possible end of March invasion of India, from the Bengal Sea.

I tried it with Mandalay, but the supply seems to have disappeared on the way.

Also, something embarrassing to report:

BBs Ramilles and Resolution are out of fuel in the CT entry hex and need 16 days to enter the map.

I think all Allied players have run TFs out of fuel on the IO side of the map in 1941-early 1942. There just is not enough fuel for the amount of shipping that has to move. CT itself is a problem and you will need to run some tankers there from Abadan or EC USA until the monthly emergency convoys can accumulate enough there. Once you have ~ 300K fuel there you should be OK, unless you are using that route to haul most of the supply and fuel for Australia.

I also found I had to haul some fuel to Aden initially but only about 60K tons before it began accumulating on its own. Many of my troop convoys from Aden were run to Abadan to refuel before coming on-map (rather than use Aden's small stocks). The delay for the troop convoys did not seem too much.

Aden is also strapped for supply. If you allow the troop convoys to load supply to fill empty space and get more to the map with the troops you can run it dry quickly.

I typically run some supply there from Abadan.

Feb 23-27, 1942:

ABDA Com:

- Enemy forces sweep through southern Sumatra with 1 division and Java with three divisions. Allied forces (800AV) bottled at Buitenzog, behind lvl3 forts and 45k supply.
- Ambon repels another deliberate attack, but AV is down to 170.
- KB spotted at Singapore.

SE Asia:
- Mr Kane sweeps Burma with 100 fighters and meets empty air, as allied fighters are withdrawn to Asam.
- I Australian Corps has now arrived at full strength. An Indian division and two Indian brigades also arrive.

China:
- A large stack of mine is encircled west of Hengyang before my MLR is set up. Some 80k troops will soon be captured. This was always part of my master plan, in order to reduce the amount of mouths I have to feed.

SoPac:
- Fiji invaded by 1 Japanese division, covered only by two CVs. This is a strange gamble, as the invasion could be easily crashed by my 4 CVs.
- My convoy system needs readjustment. NZ will probably be made a major hub, but I 'm also contemplating running off map convoys to Australia.

Question: what do you do with the Dutch airforce at this point? Disband or move them to Koepang?

Buffalos vs Zeroes? Even with 4 carriers, your strike force would have a tough time making it through.

4 allied CVs (even with buffalos) could definitely sink 2 lone and exposed Jap carriers in my opinion. Try it, but as pontious says, be careful and wary.

The main part of the KB is at Singapore, so it could be done inmho. Getting through 50 Zeros with a strike force of 350? The problem is my CVs are not in theater.

What do you have in the way of troops in Fiji? That is the very first place I like to send my SoPac forces - with both Suva and Nadi being able to be built up to level 9 airfields it is the most important location in the SoPac, IMO.

I'd say that most important is Vavau, the only level 6 port in SoPac in Stock map. Will be untenable with Fiji conquered though. Why would big arfields be that important away from Japan and other key strongholds to bomb?
Edit: relatively peaceful area of SoPac meant ofc, Luganville is 6 too

The problem with American carrier operations early in the war is their coordination is questionable at best. many times you don't get off a coordinated attack and sometimes not all squadrons fly. With lack of PPs early many don't pay the points t0 upgrade the quality of stock squadron commanders. So though you may outnumber them 2-1, if they have BBs in their TFs and your don't, they may end up being an even fight.

March 6-12, 1942:

ABDA Com:

- Batan falls and resistance in Luzon is ended.
- Ambon repels another deliberate attack. 170AV, lvl2 forts, 12k supply.
- Forgot to mention that with the fall of Palembang, 170 oil fields are destroyed.
- Tarakan and Samarinda fall. Balikpapan soon to be captured too.
- Dutch bombers disbanded.

SE Asia:
- KB parks in the Andaman Sea for several days. Purpose unknown atm.
- Enemy bombers start bombing airfields in Burma for the first time.
- Japanese offensive in Burma appears to be in full swing. 65k troops and 37 units spotted at Chinag Mai, while 7 regiments are attempting to cross Salween river (identified by air attacks).
- SigInt reports 4th Jap Div at Chiang Mai as well. My guess is that total IJA strength at Chiang Mai and environs is 5 division equivalents or about 2250 AV (identified: 4th Inf, 55th Inf and 5th Guards, guessed: Imperial and 6th Guards).
- Allied strength in Burma is 3500 AV, with 85k supply.
- First attempt at river crossing:

SE Asia:

- After taking Port Blair, Imperial Guards Division is moving to Mulmein (SigInt). Also at Mulmein are 4 BBs that bombarded Port Blair.

- On March 22, KB disappears again.
- 4 Japanese BBs are still parked at Mulmein. They bombard Pegu during the night. In the morning, the Allies sweep Mulmein and then launch a naval strike from Rangoon with 78 bombers. No enemy CAP encountered:

Too much to report. Very bloody battles west and north of Hengyang but the line holds.

Stringbags, Vilderbeests and Albacores can make a real mess of Japanese ships when they venture outside air cover.

The urge to do as much as possible before the amphib bonus goes can sometimes cost the Japanese dear.

Oi, this is like employing child labor, you merciless you :)
Get them to train Chinese fighter pilots in secondary skills instead somewhere in India. To use later in the war when they get decent airframes and skills. These bombers are not replaceable (edit: in Stock that is, don't know about DaBabes)

- 9 Chinese level bombers (bought out) bomb enemy troops west of Chinag Mai for several days.

Oi, this is like employing child labor, you merciless you :)
Get them to train Chinese fighter pilots in secondary skills instead somewhere in India. To use later in the war when they get decent airframes and skills. These bombers are not replaceable (edit: in Stock that is, don't know about DaBabes)





They were training, but I couldn't resist the urge to use them. These pilots are already decent at ground bombing. It's like stock in DBB. China gets a few B-24 imports later.

With KB minus 2 CVs that far away I know I would be getting up to mischief where they are not with my CVs and maybe more if you still have available BBs. These can be golden opportunities. I believe in making IJN pay elsewhere for their fun in Indian Ocean.
