If skirmishing in the Southern DEI, mop up operations on Java, action in northern Sumatra, and a lively air war in Burma were not enough, lines seem to be joining in SOPAC as the Japanese move additional units to Ndeni near the U.S. base at Espiritu Santo. China remains mostly quiet.

March 23rd

A Japanese landing commences at Sabang as the torpedo boats patrol the area south on guard for the squadron of PT boats that had been near Medan. Indeed the PT boats sortie and are intercepted by the TBs. The intrepid PT boat captain however, pushes straight at and through the TBs, landing a torpedo on one.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Night Time Surface Combat, near Langsa at 46,72, Range 3,000 Yards

Japanese Ships

PT-34
PT-35
PT-41
PT Q-112, Shell hits 1
PT Q-113

The PTs then push on to Sabang where they encounter the Japanese amphib group unloading.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Quite the show by the PT boats and their commander. Thankfully, the game is still in the amphibious bonus period and the ships had already landed for one phase; otherwise the casualties would have been much worse.

821Bobo tells me that he was moving a full division to the river-line to reinforce the hex and trash the units that were crossing. He tells me that I arrived one day ahead of the division, so a fortunate turn of events for Japan. I had spotted two units with a large troop count moving in the direction of the river from central Java about one week before, so I knew there was a race on for the river. This should explain to those following the AAR why 821Bobo has been bombing my units along that trail for a week: to interdict their movement and try to win the race to the river. That is also the reason for my cap trap of those bombers a few days ago. In addition to destroying bombers, I was also trying to chase them off to keep the regiments in move mode to keep pace with the armor and recon. Fortunately, I was able to keep 2 regiments in move mode for the day, allowing me to cross the river with the majority of the stack three day later, ahead of the Indian division: a close shave for Japan.

March 24th, 1942.

The early morning hours start off like too many have for the empire: with allied submarines finding troop transports.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SS O23 launches 4 torpedoes at APD Aoi


It seems as though allied submarines only fire at loaded troop transports, and when the transports are loaded, they do not miss or dud. I should not complain, however. They did miss Hiryu yesterday. Meanwhile, Japanese submarines have been quiet. Robert is doing a very nice job avoiding my sub patrols.

Dawn breaks and Japanese LBA continues to support ground actions at Padang and Sabang: also attacking the airfield at Batavia for a second day. Allied B-17s continue their relentless assault on Moresby.

Meanwhile, 650 miles west of Darwin, Tamon Yamaguchi has moved his CVs into position off the coast of northern Australia. His original assignment was to reduce the airfield at Koepang and support landings on Timor. He was given wide latitude in how to do so, however, and he decided move his CVs far south of the landings. By 8:30 AM, he began receiving reports of several allied TFs in the region, including a group of APs loading at Derby. He ordered the carriers to turn into the wind and all planes aloft. 2 hours later, he began receiving strike reports.

821Bobo was upset with himself for not dispersing these TFs. He had spotted the CVs about 130 miles North North-west of Koepang 2 days ago, and then received reports of a TF just west of Koepang yesterday. This was the first time that the Japanese have moved their CVs outside of LBA cover, however, and the move south 650 miles west of Darwin was rather surprising. ( It was, in fact, the lack of contact by submarines that prompted the move. This was one of the few areas in which I did not have active submarines. I figured the allied shipping has to be somewhere).

Yes. Other than the 2 APs and the 2 AMCs, the losses were nothing significant, but I feel better now, having lost about 85 VPs in ground troops to your subs... jajaja.

Well evens the score for that sub attack off the coast of Thailand about one month ago. That AP that you sunk had 3,600 troops on it from the 38th division. About 1000 were rescued, but I lost about 60 AV plus support in that one attack. Set my assault on Singapore back 4 days.

The merchant ships massacre was indeed a big feat for Japan. More than the casualties, heavy in any case, other consequences over Bobo who needs to protect or avoid this route.

What most elated me, though, was the PTs raid at Madand(?).

Woooowww!

This Bobo is a BEAST of an opponent.

Regarding the close torpedoing of the Kaga, I think that against an able opponent I should keep permanently sub hunter/killer flottillas (effective sub chasers/destroyers+ dedicated air squadrons) at the approaching tracks to highly sensible locations such as Truk.

At the beginning-mid of war, for example, Truk is in my game one of the main hubs for fuel, troops, supply. Lot of valuable prize in and out. And, as you can see, the organic escort of the sailing fleets is not sufficient to keep them, the subs, at bay.

Yes. I got a little lazy in my ASW air patrols out of Truk. I had them focused north when some troops ships arrived and never switched them back to southern arcs to cover the CVs. Also, I went away from my normal TF composition, in which I like to keep more escorts than capital ships in CV and SC TFs. As 821Bobo can testify, my CVs have been swimming in sub infested waters since Dec. 7th, and that was the first attack. It was also the first time that I did not have my normal TF composition: never again. I will stay with what works for me.

The game is on hold until next week... BTW.
