Lowpe knows what he's doing and what he's talking about. He doesn't have the time or the assets to do anything meaningful in Oz. He has to keep KB and most of this combat ships between the Allies and places like Luzon and Formosa, hoping for opportunities to strike. Attacking Oz at this point would be folly.

+1

He up to his ar__ in alligators, he doesn't need to go looking for more. Even if OZ was completely empty, what would it accomplish? Eric would cede OZ in a heartbeat as Lowpe would give up Formosa maybe Shanghai too.
But I don't think OZ is empty. I haven't seen that many OZ units in action besides the ones already local at game start. Further, replacement pools are so low and slow, allied players rarely prioritise buying and Eric would know this.

There is a game you can play here to speed up repairs by switching between pierside and shipyard modes to speed up repairs.

I would imagine that the BBs are coming for you Size 5 runways.
Weather sucks so often than without carrier support, not too much to worry about air-wise.

Have you any mines around Bering Island?
If so, I would pull the bombers back to P-jima and hope a Naval strike would catch a mine-wounded BB retreating from the bombardment.

A small trap....working on moving troops, saving troops, whittling down the Allied Air Force.

Deathstar is off Patani, with most of the Allied Navy. KB is off Borneo shepherding the movement of troops and supplies.

Bering will have mines shortly, and both islands actually have DP guns too.

Moving everything,sweeps don't fly...not enough troops to protect the next likely target of Vietnam.

Welcome reinforcement. Other CVs still in drydock, from a few days to a few months. Yamoto in two weeks.

Looks like Krampus is coming to visit, instead of St. Nick.

The only thing I can think of would be to flood the whole area from Java up to Thailand with subs (I mean like every stinking sub you've got) and fly lotsa NavSearch missions to get better detection levels for your subs... From reading so far it looks like you've got nothing to throw at the allied TFs that are infesting what should be your waters during this time frame of the war. You are really in that spot between the rock and the hard place here.

I'm really impressed that you haven't tipped over your king in this game.

The bombardment forces doesn't target the local troops present...which is bad for the scheduled shock attack later today....can the Allies use their cursed movement bonus to arrive in Georgetown and spoil the attack?

Will the Allies bomb heavily...

Can't even disable a single tank...I have two 39 AV tank regiments in the entire area and they aren't here.

I lack the troop strength to prevent further invasions up the Gulf of Siam, I lack the troop strength to save Vietnam.

Lack of aviation support is really a problem...

I moved all the supplies out of Tokyo for fear of firebombing...

Sweeps fly...plus a nice naval bombard on the northern coast of Borneo -- that doesn't go without a cost to Japan.
