Getting supply into China is the holy grail of AE. If you figure it out let me know.
The best method I ever saw was a player who transferred every operational bomber that had the range to fly to China to Ledo, starting Dec 7th.
By every bomber, I mean the US East Coast stuff, ABDA, RAF, the US aircraft on Luzon, and all the stuff in-between.
I think it was a pretty respectable boost to China's supply situation, but obviously the tactical cost of doing that is pretty steep in the early game for the Allies.
Then again, the strategic cost of losing China due to no supplies is even more so.
China ain't fun for the Allies at all.
That was Mr. Kane, a player known for thinking outside the box and taking risks. He sets his strategic plan on the first turn and sticks to it like few players do!
I know I would crack and react to other game events ...
