Here's a list of the LCU's at Fusan now. I combed China and Manchuria for some extra LCU's and I seem to have
found a few. They have been awaiting loading for several days now. Most of them arrived in the last day or
two via rail. I finally got enough shipping there to take somebody somewhere. I think I'll start with the INF.

New moves from Brian. I'm watching the combat replay and just now there was a big furball over Singapore and
the Japs won. That's what I'm talking about.

I did a night-time airbase strike and got pretty good results all things considered.

This reduces losses in bombed LCUs.

Why would you want to lessen the losses of the LCU's you're bombing? I don't get it.

Also, A while back I mentioned transports that can't load RES and I found one while
playing my anti-AI game. It's a British ship but still a cargo hold is a cargo hold.
I have no idea why it can't load RES but the button to do so is greyed out. I remember
seeing a similar ship in RHS.






RHS introduced new bomb loadouts for level bombers. Basically bombers now can take LOTS of small bombs. Sallys can take 20 x 50 kg bombs now on ground attack. You can find early RHS tests in the Mod section where whole LCUs got vaporised by bombers. Granted, it seems Sonia's loadout wasn't changed at all and she is now more limited in attacks, but medium bombers are toned down nicely.

Good to know. I had no idea. Thanks.

Also, I've begun a series of pictures for my use mostly of the production of each of the engines to see how many
I need to produce and whether or not I should turn off the factory or convert it to a different engine.

This is the Ha-5 something or other. I'm producing right now about twice as many as I need but that's because
I want to get into the 500+ engine bonus area.

Here's the situation with the places on the map that build the Ha-5/1000 engine. As you can see there's an
incredable amount of slack built in. I can expand these factories to twice as much production as I have
right now. IF I pay the price in supply. Which I don't think I can right now. Tokyo is hurting for
supplies temporarily. I hope.

The next aircraft in the list of aircraft that I'm building right now is the B5N1 Kate and the engine for
that aircraft is the Nakijima Ha-1/730. Of which I'm building 60 per month right now and there's only a
need for about 12 airframes per month so that's about right for the early war period. I'm trying to build
up a small stockpile of engines and then turn off the factory.

The previous post just considered the Kates and I needed to concentrate on ALL the airframes that use that
engine and this is that list. I'll be using this engine for some time to come evidently.

So the next aircraft in the list of aircraft I'm building is the Jake and the engine for the Jake is the
Ha-31/1080 and I found the list of planes that use that engine and summed them up and it's less than the
194 engines that I'm building so I'm covered. According to the Industry display "engines" tab I can almost
double the production of that engine if I just pay the costs in supply. Pretty nifty for RHS's designer
to give us hints like that.

The next plane is the Glen and I looked up the engine for that and then looked up what airframes use that
engine and the results are I'm building way too many engines unless you count the Stella; that ends in December
of '42 however.

EDIT: Hitachi Small<351

I'm doing this series for me so I can refer to it later but I don't mind sharing with you guys. The next plane
being built is the Pete including the float fighter. I looked up the engine and it turns out that the Sonia
also uses this engine. I'm building about 50% too many but that's okay for right now. I won't need this engine
all that long.

EDIT: Kawski Ha-9/940

The next airplane is the Sally and the engine for that plane is being produced way more than is needed but
that's because of future needs. There are airframes in the future that will need this engine but there's
200+ in the pool already.

EDIT: Mitsbsi Ha-32/1800

Here's the full report on the Ida. I've got 7 in the pool, I'm building 2 per month, I'm building almost 60
engines per month and there's a need for only 8 airframes per month. I'm thinking I can turn off production
of this engine for a while and save the HI.

EDIT: Hitachi Ha-13/515

And now the Helen and it's engine, the Nikijima Ha-35/1250. I'm building twice as many as I
need but there's lots of future needs to be considered and I've still got Helens coming off the assembly line
so I need this factory turned on for a while yet.

EDIT: Yeah, I just now realized that I was counting wrong. There's TWO engines on a Hellen larry.

And next is the Tabby which uses the MitsbKaw/1430 and I'm producing so many and I have so many
in the pool and the need right now is so low that I've turned off production of the engine at Hakata.

I just received Brian's second set of moves for the day and it's about 17:36 local here so I'm going to keep the
moves and work on it overnight. Here's me moving some fighters to Wake without any AF dudes there yet. I watched
the combat replay and then started checking Tracker data and Tracker said Wake was overstuffed with INF and I
looked and it's right there's two INF units there and only one is needed for now so I've got to move one of them.
That's when I discovered to my horror that there were no planes there at all. And no AF dudes. I can afford to
lose the services of this unit when the airplanes start to go down for maint. pretty soon. I'm thinking I'm going
to be able to get some AF dudes there before the end of two weeks from now.

EDIT: These guys were the lucky ones tagged for duty at Wake because they were in range and not doing much of
anything at Kwajalein but they had to use drop tanks to get there.

I held a raffle and I found the winning unit at Tokyo. They volunteered to a man for the billet at Wake.
They are loading now and will take approx. a week to get there. By then that Claude squadron will have
about 7 planes down for maint.

Peiping has a tiny problemo according to Tracker, the airfield has too many planes for the AF dudes there
but the game engine thinks everything is hunky dorie just now. Tracker doesn't double the size of the
brigade just because the airfield is a level 10 field.

On the east coast of Malaya, at KB. there's a squadron that has one plane down for maint. so I can't move it and
to make use of it I've arranged for a bunch of reserve pilots to fly in and man the squadron for as long as it's
down for maint. I assume that it's not going anywhere but when it's flyable I'll move 'em to Saigon.

Here's a rough snap-shot of Tokyo right now. It's really low on supplies because I forgot to not load supplies
on one or more troop transports and they loaded what was on the shelf AND what was in the back room. And Tokyo
was already hurting for supplies. The supply level is what enables the repair of the facilities at Tokyo which
is a powerhouse of industry. It needs supplies to keep going. That and lots and lots of RES.

In the recent past the supply level had fallen in all the home island cities in the region Honshu, the home
islands and so I went through all the home island cities turning off all the factory repairs and the expansion
of ports and airfields and this turn Tracker says Honshu is gaining supply so the crisis is over already. I
found out that you can't repair every cities factories at the same time and it's got to be staggered growth.
The levels of the other categories are trending downward still though and that means I'm not gathering enough
goodies yet. D'oh.

New moves from Brian: I have given orders for a landing at Cebu and it appears that Brian has mined the harbor
there. That's a complication I don't need. All my DMS ships are busy at Hong Kong clearing that harbor. I
guess I need to split them up and do both places simultaneously.

I checked out my DMS's and it appears that they are done with Hong Kong already. The green dot signifying Allied
mines is gone so I'm moving the TF to Takao for refuel and repairs for a couple of them and then on to Cebu. I
should be there in about a week or so.

I finally remembered to get the LCU at Cebu to start planning on Cebu and I've had a look at the relative size of
the two forces in that hex and I think I've bitten off more than I can chew. I think a second trip with more
troops and arty are going to be needed for this operation. I'll take a look around and see if I can't find some
resources from somewhere.

I flew this squadron to Wake yesterday even though there's no AF dudes there just to have some top cover. The AF
dudes are enroute from Tokyo and they should arrive in about a week. Meanwhile I expected somebody to be down
for maint. already but here they are all doing just fine. Maybe they will all be down in a week or so.

The third and final piece of the 21st Division is now unloading at Aparri and as soon as they have caught their
breath I'm going to put the division together and march it to Manila to stop the industry there from producing
anymore supplies for the defenders. It's aimed to help make the take-down easier and quicker.

EDIT The Allied air force has disappeared from Manila and I've been bombarding every day for about a week now
and I'm thinking that the defenders at Manila might be in some kind of disorder maybe. I can hope.

Here's what's going on right now. I'm making landings at Rabaul and north of the Celebes and on the east coast of
Malaya still and I'm marching south on the PI roads from Aparri to Manila and I'm bombing night and day the targets
of Manila and Singapore. I've got a group of Betty's that are targeting Singapore's LI industry just to stop the
flow of supplies therefrom.

Here's what's going on around the Rabaul area now. I seem to have landed some AF dudes by themselves at Hollandia and
I expect them to get killed once Brian finds out that's all that's there. And he will. So I'll have to invade that
place a second time probably. I don't have any troops nearby that I can rush into the AO to save the day. Lemme think
on it some more. Maybe I can take a fragment from Rabaul.

Here's what's going on around the Singapore area. Actually this image starts around Rangoon or so and extends to
about Balikpapan. As I notated everybody in Malaya is in a footrace to Singapore. I've got my tanks out acting
independently roaring down the roads as fast as they can go. Just supplying them is a big problem. As the
airfields on the east coast of Malaya are maturing I can send the engineers to other bases in the interior.

I've sent my moves to Brian this am and now is the waiting. He's got an arm that's bothering him, his mouse arm, and
sometimes he needs to take a break, etc. So it may be a while yet. Meanwhile, here's what I see after I hit the 'Z'
key. I've got some holes in my search patterns. That means I have some float planes that I need to move around and
try to fill in the gaps where Brian's subs can lurk. Brian likes to lurk, he's a lurker.
