Turn 21. Jan/Feb 1943. Axis #1.

Euro-Axis. The Eastern Front. Army Group Center/South.

A bold attack by the Wehrmacht in the snow produces a breakthrough at the burning oil fields of Grozny. This breakthrough is threatening the entire Soviet positions in the Caucuses. There's a 50% chance that the Snow will continue next axis impulse. With the Soviets badly outflanked it's snow then the Germans will have clear road to Baku and will be well on their way to pocketing all the Soviet forces in and around the Caucuses mountains.

Turn 21. Jan/Feb 1943. Allied #4.

Actions. USA - naval, Great Britain - naval, Free France - combine, China - land, USSR - land.

Western Allies. Production & Supply. The first thing during their naval moves that the US and Great Britain did was to replace loss convoys to get production, saved oil, trade and supply back.

Western Allies. Convoy Routes and Unused Convoys at Sea.

1. The off the books 3 oil saved from Canada to Great Britain is back.

2. The CP that the US lose last impulse in the Marianas was NOT replaced since it wasn't necessary either to intended production or supply. The absence of any allied CP there will deny the -1 to search rolls that the Japanese were, or might be, getting.

Turn 21. Jan/Feb 1943. Allied #4.

RN & USN, Atlantic Fleets. ASW Escorts and Patrols.

1. German u-boat are capable of reaching any Atlantic and Med sea area containing allied convoys.

2. Because of the weather (e.g., storms in the Med) and the short turn (i.e., first allied impulse is #4 and the second axis will be #7), no Torch this turn. This frees up all of the Elizabeth class battleships and a number of aircraft carriers for ASW escort and patrol.

3. Allied ASW escorts and patrols. All threaten sea areas except the Norwegian coast and Arctic ocean got escorts and patrols. Priority in terms of air and naval allocations was to those sea area colored in yellow (i.e., find) and purple (i.e., snow) where planes can fly and sub attack search rolls get a -1 per 10 CP's, or fraction thereof, in the sea area.

Turn 21. Jan/Feb 1943. Allied #4.

USN. The Marianas. The USN didn't take the bait laid out by the Japanese in the Marianas. This sea area currently is of no strategic purpose. Also, the IJN is in an equivalent 6-box (i.e., their 7 range carrier planes add +2) and the highest that the USN could get would be an equivalent 4-box (actual 3-box). So, for this turn, the USN decided to ignore the Marianas and concentrate their Pacific fleet on other Pacific sea areas.

Note: all Japanese warships and subs are at sea so there's threat of reaction from the IJN to USN, and RN, moves for the remainder of this turn. Also, it's near certain that Japan will want to take a land next axis impulse to invade the Philippines and continue their push in Malaya and against Singapore. Finally, there's the need for Yamamoto to capture their 3rd resource in Soviet Asia.

RN. Bay of Bengal. The RN declines to initiate; however they IJN do and are successful. The Japanese manage to sink the RN supply convoy and break allied supply (again) to Singapore. With their objective accomplished and a bit out gunner, the Japanese retire from the battle after this initial round.

USSR. Southern Front. Rail. Well, the Soviets in the South were able to reinforce their right flank by first railing Yeremenko's HQ-I to establish a rail head and then reinforcing that position by railing in the 7th Guards infantry army and the 1st cavalry division.

Weather. Horrid winter weather in the Northern Hemisphere continues. The fine weather along the equator continues too, which is ideal for Japan's invasion plans for the Philippines and planned push against British forces in Malaya and Singapore, especially given that they're out of supply.

Why did the US take two D's on the same submarine? If there is one thing the US has, it's build points; two build points, and both subs are right back in the fight. Now one is out for at least a year. Although taking both D's on the speed 4 submarine would have made sense. Speed 4 submarines aren't worth any build points.

What's also a strange thing is giving the Italian ships to the US after conquest. The Italian ships all have short range and after you repaired them, they take at least a whole turn to move out of the US to the sea area's where the battles are. If you gave them to the CW, they can still be repaired by US build points, but arrive in the UK, much closer to the European frontlines, freeing longer range CW BB's for action against the Japanese.

The first D risk, which resulted in damage, was chosen by the US during a sub combat. The next D risk, which sunk the sub group, was chosen by the Japanese during a naval air in the next round. If the US had had their way this D would have gone on the other sub group, but Japan was choosing.

O.K. Thanks. I choose the US because later in the game the US will likely use a super-combine every turn. So, I believe these ships once repaired will see action, or at least duty, every turn under the US flag.

Turn 21. Jan/Feb 1943. Axis #7.

Actions. Japan - land, Germany - land, Italy - land.

Southern China. Imperial Japanese High Command made a decision that Japan will go on the defensive in Southern China. There's so many Japanese troops, including 2 HQ's, tied up against the Nationalist and with only hard to reach resources left on this front to harvest it was decided to focus time and resources on more lucrative regions.

Turn 21. Jan/Feb 1943. Axis #7.

Northern China. No decision has been made yet whether or not to go on the defensive on this front. Like the Southern Front, any new resources that could be harvested would be hard to get. Again, the are more lucrative areas with easier to get to resources. The only reason to continue to push on this Front would be if the communist Chinese area could be eliminated or effectively neutered. Though, additional troops and another HQ is required if offensive action is to continue.

No matter the decision to be made on this front (i.e., continue to push or go on the defensive) and the decision on the Southern Front to go on the defensive, strategic bombing of Chinese factories is one thing that Japan will not let up on.

Japan. Kuala Lumpur. The land combat odds were more dicier than desired due to RN defensive shore bombardment from the Bay of Bengal doubling the defense. But, the attack had to be made and was with fair results (for Japan that is).
