Unfortunately I don't have a Mech like this but I will do my best anyway




Scenario 199 B-Mod (here for further info)
Really a tons of changes in almost every field, China theater is very different and I think it won't be possible to take the whole China anymore (but big mistakes), anyhow here more details.

I play the Allied side and Chris21wen accepted to play the harder side, both we aim for a historical approach.
We quickly agreed on the game settings and HRs:

Game
Fog of War - ON
Advanced Weather - ON
Allied Damage Control - ON
PDU - ON
Historical First Turn - OFF
Dec 7th Surprise - ON
Realiable USN Torps - OFF
Realistic R&D - ON
No Unit Withdrawals - OFF
Reinforcements - Fixed
Turn cycle - 1

HRs (whole match):
No Sir Robin. Islands can be evacuated after the island is invaded
Every restricted unit must pay PPs to move out of it's area with one exception: Akyab
HB cannot bomb naval units below 10K
Only Glen on Jap SS
Sweep altitude one level higher their best performance (max)

HRs (first turn):
1 Port attack
Allied can change units settings only in the China area or already existing TFs


No Chris21wen after this post

Thanks Bif1961

Overall Strategy
Stand and fight!
No Sir Robin at all, my main goal will be to delay the enemy advance with the available forces trying to keep the combat ships/air losses at 1:1.5 ratio, not in the first month although.

I have some key bases in mind that will be reinforced early and that will need more effort to be taken by Japaneses, I cannot stop him but I can buy time.

Also I want to fight if the odds are not heavily against, even a battle lost can be a victory if the opponent plays more safe.

I don't know him and his tactics therefore the game will be more interesting.

More details later.

n my recent restart game against my long time worthy opponent I bombed OH for 2 days and din't sink anything but 1 DD. My torpedo planes only launched torpedoes once and only 27 Kates total carried them in 2 days. So instead of a historical start where 5 BBs were sunk or ran aground I sank zero, even OK and AZ were never returned to duty. I guess you can always hope that your Japanese opponent has as bad as luck as I did.

Oh well...my hope will never die

Here a more detailed view about my initial plans.

Malaya
I hope the 11th Indian Division will reach Singapore almost intact, all other units will do a fighting withdrawal.
Singapore: I need the airfield in good shape for a while, an attrition air war is what I'm looking for.

I'm going to use the Royal Navy for a dynamic defence even if most of them are old vessels.

Burma
The 1st Burma Division has in charge the defence of Rangoon, the 17th Indian Division will fight its last battle at Lashio and Akyab.
1/3 AVG in support, 1/3 in China and with the other third still unsure what to do.

India
Chittagong airfield will be improved to support Akyab.
Madras, Calcutta, Hyderabad e Bombay will be garrisoned by one division each one, 6th and 7th Australian Division will stay here until the enemy plans will be more clear.

I need fighters therefore the Tenth USAAF will be based in India, even if pretty useless at the moment.

The few British modern cruisers will stay at Colombo with the CVL Hermes, Ceylon will be reinforced.

DEI
The Dutch fleet will join the Royal Navy, the submarines have been organized in three divisions.

Again the Air Fleet will try to buy time fighting an attrition war.

Palembang will be bolstered by 46th Indian Brigade (if time permitted), Batavia e Soerabaja the main strongholds.

I will try to save as much supply from forward bases and fuel as possiblle, the latter for the Australian ports.

Philippines
All around four bases: Clark Field, Manila, Bataan and Cagayan.
I have two PS Infantry RCTs with a good experience (60) and a couple of tank battalions, there is a good American RCT but I'd like to ship it out for a more deep defence. Also two BFs and the Far East Air HQ I'm willing to move out.
We will see how the ships onslaught will end (i.e. how many ships will sink trying to leave Manila).

B-17 will flight from DEI airfields, the submarines will form four divisions.

US Navy will form two SAG TFs in this area.

Timor
Koepang will be reinforced by 45th and 46th Indian Brigades, also Dili will be bolstered.
I want to defend Darwin from here.

Australia
Darwin will receive the 18th British Division (two infantry brigades) and more air groups when will be available.
I will try to stand as long as possible here.

Most of the Australian units will reach the North-East coast and Perth, Brisbane and Sydney cities.
I want to support PM from Townsville-Cairns area.

New Guinea
Port Moresby will be another stronghold, the rest of the 18th British Division (infantry brigade and recce battalion) plus the rest of the 30th Australian Brigade.

New Zealand, Australian and US Navy ships will form two SAG TFs.

South Pacific
Noumea, Suva and Pago Pago will receive US Marine and Army units, they will be the ideal wall against the Japanese expansion, again I cannot really held anything but I can force my opponent to invest time, troops and resources to take them, if he will stay focused in few points I can hit him in other places (oh well...this is my plan at least)

China
What a mess!

Every Chinese base has Resources and Light Industry factories plus a small amount of supply bonus (starting from 20 at least), there are more bases and the garrison requirements are increased respect than stock scenario, therefore I guess it won't be possible to take the whole China without a big effort by Japanese Army.

The most important cities are Sian, Changsha and Chungking, several Corps are ready to defend them, moreover in this theatre I can have some fun too, Ichang can be attacked if not immediately reinforced.

What I really miss are the recon aircrafts!

Hawaii
What I really care here are my Catalinas, better to lose alla capital ships than the whole PA air groups, we will see after the PH attack (I think the Manila attack is strategically inferior but who knows).
Some force will be moved out plus all not Hawaiian USAAF air groups.

I'm going to create CV TFs with 2 CV each one plus 3-4 cruisers and 6 DDs long range, when fast battleships will be available they will join the party.

Aleutian Islands
Umnak Is. and Dutch Habor will be reinforced, the BBs under repair at Seattle will defende this sector if at PH some big ship will be still alive.

Political Points
All 500 points have been already planned buying troops and changing some SS TF commanders, the 2nd Marine Regiment is especially good because is a crack unit but under strenght, therefore is relative cheap at the moment.

Btw: first turn sent this morning, have fun!
