Jan 15, 1945


The landing at Malacca goes well supported by a decent hit from 2E based at Singkawang and a good supporting naval bombardment. A tank brigade is also now one hex South and will move up for the attack to hopefully pursue the brigade here. Other units are moving to isolate Singers by taking Johore Baru.

The Japanese units all over Malaya seem to be bugging out. I'll be landing at Patani and Kota Bharu next but might find everything deserted. I see also some units are getting to Udon Thani to get out of Indochina by that route. It'll be interesting when I land over there.

The Victoria Point troops are also a few days out from that invasion. No sightings yet as he's not flying naval search out there from Sabang or other bases.

Troops are loading for Tourane, Quinhon and Hue now. Hard to find enough ships to haul them all!

Palembang has 100k troops. I get the feeling he loaded up after I began walking up the base of Sumatra and took Benkolen and on to Prabemolih. Now those are all but gone for the IJ. I'll not touch the base for a good while though. Let supply dwindle first, and bombers work on the stack. Territory there is too good defensively to tackle that mess, which is why they're there, I'm sure.

I'm not sure what mod you are playing, could not find it in the first post. But if refineries produce supply it might be better to get into Palembang ASAP to stop oil production and hence deprive refineries of their resource. They will exhaust the stock rather quickly and then supply production stops. Otherwise, you might be in for a lot of waiting the dwindling

Exactly. I've already bombed out most of the oil and he hasn't been moving anything there recently.

Ah, scratch the above, bomb the refineries instead or just do nothing.

There's something like 35 oil centres there but the Allied bombers completely control the air and I've been bombing the airfields and port lately to make sure there is constant pressure on the troops there. I'll keep hitting the remaining oil but also continue eating at supply, and eventually bombing troops.

Jan 16-17, 1945


So. This one is still chugging along. Getting to a better pace now as I have got the major elements of massive Allied invasions loaded up and moving toward targets. This will be interesting. A delicately balanced set of targets all staged within a few days of one another over several weeks. We'll see if these forces can pull it off while keeping on schedule and nullifying Japanese counters. The last will be the toughest component I'm sure.

On the 16th the Allies sink a few small ships around Malaya and begin the walk toward Singers.

On the 17th Malacca falls and paras attempt Kota Baru to secure its level 8 field. They fail on day one, but hopefully with a little help from the USN will get it on the next try. I have the entire 11th Airborne to commit here.

Getting a big airbase up the peninsula will really help secure transit as more amphibs and other ships head this way in the coming days. The Victoria Point invasion is a few days out too. It looks like Japanese units are attempting to move out of the area. Hopefully I'll catch some still entering strat mode.

How did CA Boston et al get into Singapore's mines? Oversight in their routing, or deliberate testing of the waters?

The Kota Barhu Japanese got an "Op Mode - " adjustment - you must have caught them about to rail out. But next round they should be converting to combat mode and they have more AV than your paras. Better get more there pronto!

The Boston was on a bombardment mission. It aborted after the mines. Nothing sunk though, so that's fine.

Yep. I think he's trying to bug out. The paras will just keep coming. So will air strikes and bombardments. unless reinforced there is no chance to hold in a clear hex.
