Hello Folks ! :)

Nice to see that the Empire is still holding.
Been away from PW for some time and I didn't supposed Ur game is running still :)

Regarding to the beer ration incerase / decerase dilemma, it's a typical Manager's question :)

regards
Peter

We are doing one turn about every 10 days - too busy with other stuff, but Emperor LST will continue drinking bee... er, will continue to resist evil Strawbuk up to the bitter end.

08/06/1945


  • Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya: bombed as usual – 49.000 civilians killed, AAA ineffective
  • Karafuto: bombarded by enemy TF consisting of 1 BB, 1 CL and 13 DDs
  • Iwo Jima: bombarded by one brave IJN patrol craft – no damage report received yet
  • Bonin Is.: CV Ibuki sunk by LBA while limping back to base
  • Shanghai: raided by LBA, bombarded by several dozen DDs – the enemy must have too many of them
  • Kuching: bombed by carrier air and bombarded by surface units – our garrison suffered slight losses
  • Singapore: raided by carrier air and LBA
  • Singora: captured unopposed
  • Kuantan: captured unopposed
  • Clark Field: heavy air and ground attacks continued the attrition of our forces
  • Bataan: air attacks damaged supply dumps
  • Samar: carrier and LBA attacks, naval bombardments and ground attacks
  • Leyte: local garrison suffered carrier air, LBA, naval bombardment and ground attacks, but continues to hold the base
  • Air attacks: enemy air attacks hit Balikpapan, Palembang, Kuching, Miri, Saigon, Changsa, our night bombers retaliated against Amami Oshima, Keelung and the Bonin Is.
  • Air losses: 3:93


Emperor LST issues beer rations to the long-neglected AAA crews in Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka in order to improve their aim




*****
08/13/1945


  • Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Tokushima, Kagoshima: bombed, 26.000 civilians slained – AAA still ineffective
  • Nanshiung: 21st IJA Division advances from Nanning to Nanshiung but fails to capture the city
  • Clark Field: main force ordered to retreat to the Bataan peninsula for better defensive positions, a rearguard force tries in vain to hold off pursuing enemy ground forces – enemy aircraft harassed our forces all along the way
  • Leyte: CV air, LBA, naval bombardments and ground attacks continued
  • Cebu&Bohol: under cover of CV aircraft, LBA and naval bombardment the 77th US Division invaded and captured the islands – the 15th SBF is scattered
  • Cagayan: supported by carrier air and LBA, the US 32nd and 38th plus elements of the 1/1st Cav Brigade invaded the island – 40th Independent Brigade managed to hold the local base facilities
  • Kuching: enemy ground attack in Corps strength (several Div & Bde) supported by carrier air and naval bombardment against the lone 34th Independent Brigade gained little terrain
  • Singapore: raided by carrier air and LBA, supply depots damaged
  • Air attacks: usual rain of bombs and bullets on supply depots and base infrastructures at Palembang, Miri, Balikpapan, Shanghai, Kweilen, Changsa
  • Air losses: 3:80
  • Routine convoy losses: 3 MCS sunk


Emperor LST drops the carrot-approach and wields the stick instead – beer rations are cut for the AAA gunners. The Emperor hopes that this will motivate the gun crews to obtain results.



*****
08/20/1945


  • Tokyo and Nagoya: bombed at night – 27.000 civilians died, 16 enemy bombers downed – not by AAA but by (revitalized) night-fighters, equal number of interceptors lost
  • Kagoshima: bombarded by 30 DDs – 77 a/c destroyed on the ground - this impertinence shall be punished!
  • Uruppu: bombarded by same TF that had hit Karafuto two weeks ago: 1 BB, 1 CL, 13 DDs – something must be done against this pesky little bombardment force
  • Bataan: the motorized Allied forces advanced faster than our tired forces could march to the defensive positions on the peninsula – in a running fight, some units of our army have been destroyed, the remaining forces (12th, 20th, 36th, 49th, 54th Divisions, 50th, 51st, 52nd, 53rd Independent Brigades and the 56th Detachment) were forced into the mountains – Bataan base has been occupied by the enemy
  • Leyte: combat continued, our forces still hold
  • Cagayan: finally captured by the enemy, remnants of the garrison continue to fight in the jungle
  • Kuching: the vastly outnumbered defenders fighting a guerilla war in the hinterland have finally been overwhelmed by the enemy
  • Air losses 100+:unknown
  • Routine convoy losses: 2 MCS sunk


Emperor LST decides to disband AAA formations and to assign the gun crews to the Kamikaze Corps.



*****
08/27/1945


  • Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Kagoshima: bombed – 11.000 civilians killed, depots damaged, 49 a/c destroyed on the ground, 16 bombers shot down for 21 interceptors lost
  • Nagasaki 1: bombarded by a force of 30 DDs – 31 a/c destroyed on the ground
  • Nagasaki 2: several waves of Kamikaze (500+ sorties) from bases at Osaka, Kagoshima and Tokushima attacked the bombardment force – the Osaka strikes sank 8 DDs, the Tokushima strikes another 9 and the Kagoshima units no less than 13 DDs for a total of 30 enemy DDs sunk - BANZAI!!!
  • Philippine Islands: carrier raids, LBA bombing, naval bombardments and/or ground attacks continue at Samar, Leyte and Bohol&Cebu
  • Singapore: covered by carrier air and LBA, enemy ground forces in Corps strength crossed Johore Strait and landed on Singapore Island – unlike the British in 1942, our garrison consisting of the 1st INA Division, 62nd Division, 21st + 22nd Independent Brigades, 25th Army Eng and a detachment of the 11th SBF will fight to the death
  • Saigon: in a surprise move, Australian units in Corps strength covered by carrier air and naval forces landed at Saigon and quickly routed the lone SBF (the understrength 11th) which withdrew to Phnom Penh – the defenders of Bangkok and Phnom Penh are now cut off
  • Air losses 327:98


Emperor LST congratulates himself for his decision to transform the useless AAA gunners into Kamikaze pilots – they can’t hit planes but they can hit tin cans! For the rest of the week, loud singing and chanting could be heard from inside the Imperial beer storage, the Emperor himself gleefully intonating a new tune called 'This will teach them a lesson...'

I always do. Wait for the report on how I dealt with that pesky little bombardment force up north. IJN might be only a shadow of its former self, but it's fighting spirit is unbroken!

No, that was just artistic freedom.

Folks, the war isn't over yet, but it surely takes it's time... Strawb and I are still in, doing about a turn per month... my fault, I'm busy with job, two kids (26 and 10 months old) and on top of it I am moving at the moment. I have several pages of AAR notes waiting for transcription into a forum post, but God knows when I will find the time. So in the meantime, please find below propagan.. er, a report from my dear opponent Strawb.


Hello to all our readers....

Yes courtesy of LST (I can't post to forum from my PC) a quick look back at
this long long war from the Allied side. A long game indeed, almost as long
as actual war! Think time included a wedding (not to each other I add)
three kids (again not any connection), two house moves etc etc .

So anyway as Op Olympic warms up (or does it? May be Shanghai to install my
non-commie puppet?) time for a look back. I started in the correct
manner , by RUNNING AWAY, with some attempts are stalling with minor land
forces and a bit of bad luck when I tried the Java sea again. Otherwise
fine, I know the plan I stick to the plan, keep my CV's together, keep them
moving around on fringes of his perimeter, build up.


But then you know late '43(?) Guadalcanal just seems to be sticking out all
alone, nice airbase, may be draw in his CVs and catch them (because, heh,
after all I now had four CVs , wow). Can you hear CincPac staff officers
rolling in their graves? Well apparently I didn't . Landed fine but
resupplying? Did not lose carriers but lost lots of CLs and CAs and
therefore removed my escorts and AA power for 18 months. That really
stuffed me. Plus many many Aussies surrendered, losing the ones I sought of
rescued from Singapore. In response the Australian government withdrew
permission fro use of any aussie troops in any more offensive actions for a
year

Lesson learnt: forget shock and awe, every island got pounded to dust as I
went route 1 to Japan. However, LST seemed to be making a habit of killing
the Royal Navy, esp CVEs: I was running a shoestring campaign off Burma,
landing at Medan , and put some RN forces into south pacific (FDR to Winston
- don't care if they are old slow and armed with one pompom as flak, can I
borrow some CLs.) RN regular got sniped at but truly shocking moment ,
and I do remember swearing at the replay, was the 70+ G4M with cheery
blossoms ambush off Malaya. Not pretty and I would not wish it on any one


A special mention to Blackforce who held out on Ambon against the IJA
occupation until liberated. And can't actually recall now when I finally
caught his CVs or if was just drip drip attrition (LST?)

My genuine stroke of genius/madness/luck, was the big lunge past
Phiilipines, Peleu, IJ, and into Taiwan. Meticulously planned, with decoy
ops elsewhere, big supply stockpiles etc it just worked, caught LST on hop
and air and subs based their finally put the strangle on LST.

So that's why, with four CV TF's cruising at will off japan, three BB/CA
bombard TFs poking the wasp's nest and B-29s hovering like a permanent
thunder cloud over Tokyo , we are heading for a draw: Too many dead bodies
my side, 80% by LST game play, 20% my stupidity. And now , Tokyo or bust?

Yes, the Emperor remembers well - that was in March 1942. Four Allied divisions shattered and eight CAs sunk for negligible losses for the Empire. Those were the days...

Zuikaku and Shokaku lost in January 42 to single bomb hits near Espiritu Santo, Hiryu lost in April to a single bomb near Port Moresby, CVE Taiyo sunk by a sub near Palau in May 42, Soryu and Shoho lost in the first Marshall Islands campaign in June 43, Hosho lost in the counterattack a month later, Hiyo and Nisshin sunk in early January 44 in the second Marshall Island campaign, CVEs Kaiyo, Shinyo and Chuyo sacrificed covering the retreat of damaged fleet carriers during the campaign for Ponape in late January 44, Ryuho damaged in this action and later sunk during a carrier raid on Truk harbor, Akagi and Ruyjo sunk in late February 44 in the final phase of the Ponape campaign, Amagi lost to submarine torpedos in Philippine waters in September 44, Taiho, Chitose, Zuiho, Junyo, Unruyu and Katsuragi in the battle for Formosa in November 44. CV Ibuki sunk in an unauthorized suicide sortie against the Bonin Is. in August 45. Still operational (more or less) are Shinano, Chiyoda, Kaga and CVE Unyu.

Ha, we shall defend our Islands, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender - unless we run out of beer, of course...

That is, unfortunately, a bit more of a possibility now. There has been a major fire at a warehouse in Yakima, Washington, ruining a full 4% of the U.S. crop of hops for this year.

09/03/1945

Home Islands:
Tokyo and Nagoya city suffered fire bombing attacks, killing 13.000 civilians – our interceptors downed 25 bombers for 28 own losses. At Kagoshima the enemy bombed supply depots and a G4M factory without opposition, and a raid from Okinawa by 126 fighters escorting 54 bombers against airfields around Osaka managed to destroy 115 of our stockpiled Kamikaze planes.

Northern Command:
Our remaining surface units launched a daring raid against enemy installations at Attu to put an end to the annoying bombing and bombardment sorties from that direction against the Kurile Islands. Vice-Admiral Nishimura took BBs Ise and Hyuga, CA Atago, CL Oyodo and 15 DDs close to shore to confuse enemy radar and managed to surprise the enemy bombardment task force as it sortied from Attu harbour. In a close-range night battle, one British ‘R’ class battleship, a Cleveland class CL, two Gearing class DDs and one Sumner class DD were left behind in sinking condition in return for some scratched paint on our ships. The remaining ten enemy DDs fled and our force continued to bombard the airbase at Attu and destroyed 16 planes. The parallel sortie of our carrier force – mighty Shinano, veteran Kaga and brand-new Kasagi – failed to make contact with the fleeing enemy and retired together with Nishimura’s victorious surface task force.

Philippine Islands:
Organized resistance on Luzon ended with the destruction of our last forces on the Bataan peninsula. At Leyte, an enemy ground attack supported by LBA, carrier aircrraft and naval bombardment by 3 BBs, 2 BCs, 6 CAs and 4 CLs led to heavy losses among our troops. The enemy directed other air attacks and naval bombardments against Mindoro, Cagyayan, Cebu&Bohol and Samar. The latter was invaded by enemy troops in Corps strength, and our garrison (36th, 37th and 49th Independent Brigades plus the 26th SBF) had to yield control of the small base facilities and retreated into the interior of the island.

SRA:
Enemy air attacks have hit Palembang, Miri, Balikpapan, Singapore and Phnom Penh. Enemy ground forces advanced in the direction of Phnom Penh, where LtGen Matsuyama is preparing defensive positions with the remnants of the 15th Division and the 11th SBF. At Bangkok, the 55th and 56th Divisions are still defending the approaches of the city despite a naval bombardment by 5 BBs, 1 CA and 4 CLs. Singapore has been hit by air strikes from three different carrier task forces. The local garrison (1st INA Division, 62nd Division, 21st and 22nd Independent Brigades, 25th Army Engineers and a detachment of the 11th SBF) is bracing for the expected ground attack.

Air losses this week total 146 of our planes against 97 enemy planes downed. Routine convoys suffered no losses.

Emperor LST sends a ‘well done’ and beer to Vice-Admiral Nishimura.

*****
09/10/1945

Home Islands:
Tokyo, Nagoya and Nagasaki suffered fire bombing attacks, 46.000 civilians died. Over Nagoya, night-fighters and AAA downed 42 enemy bombers, 33 interceptors have been lost in return. Kagoshima, Tokushima and Osaka airfields have been raided repeatedly by LBA and 200 stockpiled Kamikaze planes have been destroyed.

Philippine Islands:
Enemy ground operations at Cebu&Bohol, Leyte and Cagayan continued with heavy LBA, carrier and naval support. Samar and Mindoro have been bombed by LBA.

SRA:
Bangkok has been visited by carrier aircraft and a naval bombardment force, our supply depots suffered moderate damage. Singapore was subjected to heavy LBA and carrier aircraft attacks, the losses among men and materiel are heavy.

This week we lost 283 planes to all causes, the enemy lost 156. Two tankers fell victim to enemy submarines.

Emperor LST ordered more surface actions against Attu.


*****
09/17/1945

Home Islands:
Day and Night fire bombing raids against Tokyo, Nagoya and Nagasaki have cost the lives of 52.000 innocent civilians. Raids against airfields in Osaka, Kagoshima and Tokushima provinces have destroyed about 250 planes inn the air and on the ground. Our night-fighters and AAA defending Nagoya managed to destroy 98 enemy heavy bombers for 65 fighters lost.

Philippine Islands:
Ground combat continued on Cebu&Bohol, Leyte and Cagayan, with our last defenders at Bohol being crushed by sheer numbers. Palawan has been invaded and captured by the 6th Marine Division, 32st US Division and 5th Australian Division. Likewise, Mindoro was lost when invaded by 1st and 3rd Marine Divisions plus 11th Airborne Division under cover of no less than nine BBs and six cruisers. The defending 10th SBF retreated into the jungle, but has been mauled severely.

SRA:
The defenders of Bangkok have been raided by carrier aircraft and were subjected to bombardment by five BBs, five cruisers and DDs. Ground forces at Phnom Penh suffered heavy air attacks by 180+ fighter-bombers. Depots and installations at Palembang and Balikpapan also suffered air attacks. Enemy carriers and a surface force consisting of three BBs, two BCs, six CAs, four CLs have pounded the defenders of Tarakan. Finally, Singapore suffered heavy air attacks with over 500 sorties by LBA plus attacks by two carrier task forces cruising off shore. Our ground forces and defences suffered heavily.

Air losses totalled 331:168. Enemy submarines found no victims.

Emperor LST confers with his war council in order to find the best means for a last-ditch defence.

*****
09/24/1945

Home Islands: bombs, bombs, bombs and more bombs – 25.000 civilians and a couple of POWs killed, 160 aircraft destroyed on the ground.

Philippine Islands: Ground combat (with heavy air and naval support on the Allies' side and none on our) continued on Samar, Leyte and Mindoro, resistance ended on Cagayan, and Jolo has been captured unopposed by enemy forces.

SRA: LBA and/or carrier raids against Phnom Penh, Bangkok, Singapore (37 individual raids ranging from 12 to 140 planes each), Balikpapan, Miri and HongKong continued attrition of our forces.

Air losses 168:66, three MCS sunk by enemy subs.

The war council has no suggestions to make and Emperor LST decides to confer with his beer instead.

*****
10/01/1945

Home Islands: Only weak raids against Osaka, and Nagasaki this week, 6.000 civilians killed and 49 aircraft destroyed on the ground.

China: enemy aircraft attacked resupply convoy at Tsingtao harbour and sank 15 AP, 19 MCS and one DE.

Philippine Islands: Our last defenders on Leyte and Mindoro have been eliminated, fighting continued on Samar.

SRA: Air raids on remaining strongpoints continued. A massive ground attack at Bangkok by 11th, 20th, 25th, 26th Indian Divisions, 2nd, 18th and 70th British Divisions, 11th East African Division and 50th Tank Brigade smashed through the front of the IJA 55th and 56th Divisions and captured key facilities of the city. Isolated groups of Imperial Infantry still cling to some positions.

Air losses 50:72. Four MCS sunk by enemy subs.

Emperor LST is amazed to find that while conferring with his beer, his beer actually talks back!

*****
10/08/1945

Home Islands:
LBA attacks have killed 25.000 civilians and destroyed about 80 planes on the ground. Then four large carrier task forces appeared within sighting distance off Osaka and commenced pounding air bases around Osaka, Nagoya and Nagasaki. Surprised, no fighters rose to defend the bases and numerous planes stockpiled for the expected invasion of the Home Islands have been destroyed on the ground. Furthermore, a surface force of five BBs, five cruisers and numerous DDs bombarded Kagoshima, destroying about 40 more planes and damaging ground installations.

China: ground forces clashed at Nanchang, causing light casualties on both sides.

PI / SRA: Ground combat on Samar continued. Morotai has been occupied unopposed by enemy forces. The shellshocked defenders of Singapore were unable to offer effective resistance and Commonwealth forces have occupied this once-important base.

Air losses this week 361:132. Nine MCS and one tanker sunk by subs.

Emperor LST discusses strategy with his beer and realises that he should have listened to it instead of his war council advisors.

*****
10/15/1945

Home Islands:
Enemy LBA and carrier air again concentrated on air bases in the Home Islands. While the heavies bombed factories and killed 17.000 civilians, no less than six different carrier task forces have been counted cruising off Osaka and Nagoya. This time our interceptors were ready and waiting, as was the Kamikaze Corps. But in numerous vicious air battles we suffered heavy fighter losses trying to deflect enemy strikes and heavy fighter and bomber losses when trying to hit back against enemy carriers and battleships. Even our bravest, most experienced pilots in our most modern Hayate, Shiden and Shinden fighters had no chance, the ill-trained Kamikaze Corps in their outdated planes even less. Numerous futile attacks against enemy carriers were intercepted and slaughtered by Hellcat and Corsair fighters. Only when a Kamikaze strike happened to chance upon a group of British escort carriers we got some favourable results – three Attacker class CVE have been sunk, another one heavily damaged and a CVL damaged as well. Our air groups are seriously disrupted and understrength, and replacement aircraft are even rarer than good beer.
Our submarine force, deployed to protect the Home Islands, never got a chance to attack because aggressive ASW patrols kept them away from targets. One submarine reported being attacked by a PBY before contact broke off.

PI / SRA: Air attacks have hit Samar, Miri, Palembang, Singapore, Phnom Penh, a surface bombardment has hit Menando.

Air losses from all causes this week 1464 planes for 447 enemies shot down. Six MCS and one tanker sunk by enemy subs.

Emperor LST suddenly feels a chilling breeze – and it is not coming from the Imperial beer fridge – the cold breath of doom.

At least LST has the satisfaction of having prolonged the game past the historical surrender date. Nice job off Attu -- what was a British BB doing in the Aleutians??

A search plane has spotted CL Kiso near Kiska limping home with heavy damage. Contact was established via blinker signals because Kiso's radio equipment has been destroyed by direct hits. Therefore Admiral Shima aboard Kiso was unable to transmit details on the recent naval battles off Dutch Harbor until now.


Really?

Can it happen that a ship isn't momentarily shown on the map to simulate defective radio commmunications?

@adarbrauner - You may not have noticed that this is not the Witp-AE forum we both frequent these days but the forum of its grandfather, "Gary Grigsby's Pacific War - The Matrix Edition".

You have probably come here via the link in my signature in one of my posts in the AE forum.

Well, to answer your question, no, it can not happen that one of your own ships is not being displayed on the map due to comm failures - not in AE and not in PacWar.

This here is an AAR in "story modus", so the comm failure is "artistic license". I think I may have forgotten to mention the results of a battle the week before 01/11/42 and this trick allowed me to weave them into the story line.

Gosh, this resurrection of the AAR brings back memories! I can't believe I had the time to write all that stuff. Well, that was before I had wife&kids...

Funny, in my current AE PBEM I have lost Yamato in the Aleutians in 1942 as well - some people never seem to learn!
