OPERATION DELILAH
The preliminary stuff
some notes:
the big boys of the USAAF are on the northeast coast of Australia.
F4 recon (our only true recon a/c) are in position
transports are less than a week out from the assembly point
naval support is in port awaiting the transports
all ground assets are at least 98% prep and are two to three days from the port of departure (by rail)
The 4Es and some naval assets have been keeping Horn, PM, and Milne down.
serious recon to begin in the next day or two.

I should note Yorktown suffered 18 float damage and is currently 48 hours from port and heavily escorted.

RL: My esteemed opponent traveled abroad for a week then commenced a new project for a large US firm, ergo turns have been very slow.
GT: What has happend by area of operations. NorPac: continued base buildup and redesignating future objectives for LCUs. The fighter squadron from the 28th composite group will withdraw to the US and ship out to India. It will be replaced by a newly arriving squadron and possibly a Canadian squadron as well. Supply, fuel and additional assets are in rout or waiting on transport. I will eventually station some naval surface ships here as soon as the production stateside allows. Currently all arriving naval assets are used as escorts to the central Pacific or South West pacific command. I will announce a new operation...or two from the NorPac by mid October.
CenPac: Wake has seen no more IJ aircraft other than a possible recon flight or two since the F4s arrived to CAP the island. The mines have hit at least two IJN subs with one reported sunk trying to reach safe haven. Supply sits at five thousand points or so and I am trying to enlarge the port to two. I do need to get a healthy dose of resupply in. This completes White Caps. LCUs have been given new targets. Half of the fleet carriers reside at Pearl and are due upgrades making their use in October doubtful. What I expect to accomplish in October is the expansion of Canton Island. Christmas Island (PO) is almost fully expanded and will become the fuel depot for SoPac and SwPac as long as it remains quiet. The first of the Fletchers arrived, the O'Bannon, and is escorting a USN base force to Christmas Island. The Nicholas has arrived on the east coast and is making her way to the Panama Canal. I expect these early Fletchers to be on the front lines forming a new DesRon by the mid December. It is possible, allowing for available transports, that a move may be made on the Gilberts before the year is out.
SoPac: Ndeni and KiraKira are secured. As of the 24th of September, KiraKira now has an airstrip. Recon Wildcats will stage in shortly. PBYs begin operations out of the lagoons today. An EAB is in rout to increase base building with more aviation support to follow. There may be some action in this theater the first week of October....
SwPac: Portland Roads is on the way to matching Townsville and Charter Towers as the biggest airbases in Australia. B17s are hitting Horn Island, Port Moresby, and Milne Bay. All three are damaged to at least 50% a/f and a degree of port damage as well. B17s were bounced by a dozen Nicks over PM two days ago but the skies were empty today. Somehow he is getting supply in as triple A is active again. I have the ability to launch amphibious assaults on all three targets now. Naval and ground forces are assembled in port. 2/5 and 2/6 Australian armor RGTs are traversing the scrub in NW Australia eastward. There is an IJN naval guard unit ahead.
Burma: The box, the horseshoe, and Myitkyina are holding under increasing pressure of IJA reinforcements. The monsoon season should help allieviate some of the supply concerns. I simply cannot supply any more units than I have there now. Two squadrons of the 51st fighter group have made the transition to the P40K and two full groups of B24s are in Calcutta augmenting the Mitchells and Marauders on the coast. Francois has alot of fighters strength here including Tojo and Zeros. Bettys are flying from Thailand and Rangoon.
China: absolute chaos. The northern line is broken and IJA units are on the plain. The lead elements have entered the Chengtu city limits. Changsha is not surrounded....yet. Paoshan has been in contact with the IJA for several weeks in a losing battle.




Bif1961 -> RE: ALLIED SIDE ZULUHOUR(A) FCHARTON (J) NO FCHARTON (4/29/2019 4:34:36 PM)

It looks like you are in good shape besides China.




zuluhour -> RE: ALLIED SIDE ZULUHOUR(A) FCHARTON (J) NO FCHARTON (4/30/2019 12:46:34 AM)

Thats a fair assessment. however.....China is of grave concern. It will probably fall before '43. More than likely before Thanksgiving for practical purposes. I may still have a lodgment or two then. Just what will come flooding over the Burma border is down right scary. In Burma I have only transferred in one small American unit and a couple of groups. Two large British divisions are backing up the front line trace, after that I am thin. In the other theaters I am more confident so long as I
dictate the where and whens of naval actions.




Bif1961 -> RE: ALLIED SIDE ZULUHOUR(A) FCHARTON (J) NO FCHARTON (4/30/2019 9:43:24 PM)

Where have the two Aussie Divisions gone that show up at Aden?




zuluhour -> RE: ALLIED SIDE ZULUHOUR(A) FCHARTON (J) NO FCHARTON (5/1/2019 4:15:14 PM)

One is on the coast near the Burma frontier, the other at Ledo. Both are nearly
filled out but as I am now stock piling a lot of Brit and Commonwealth men and
equipment, they will probably not reach 100% TOE before they are committed.




Bif1961 -> RE: ALLIED SIDE ZULUHOUR(A) FCHARTON (J) NO FCHARTON (5/3/2019 11:50:31 PM)

I had all my toes before I was committed [X(]

Ref 135% forts, the construction project Superintendent only wants to certify completion of one works stage per day, but he said he’ll sign off stage 2 tomorrow. He just doesn’t want to do two sets of paperwork today as the tide is about to turn and he wants to go fishing. They’re on a cost plus fixed fee contract with 30 day terms so the end of month invoice will still be the same.




zuluhour -> RE: ALLIED SIDE ZULUHOUR(A) FCHARTON (J) NO FCHARTON (5/14/2019 10:18:58 AM)

YIKES! M&M has snuck into another war!




zuluhour -> RE: ALLIED SIDE ZULUHOUR(A) FCHARTON (J) NO FCHARTON (5/17/2019 11:57:24 AM)

I erred in my response to your post. The Aussie divisions are in Burma at the horseshoe and the box. My
response gave the dispositions of the two Brit divisions. I am at October 3rd and Chengtu has fallen.
I have a couple of days to post over the weekend. In the surrealistic world of RL I had a fun day with
Pax Mondo and son at the Aerospace Museum by Reston Va. Pax could be the tour guide! I spent most of my
time in the NASA hanger this time so will not post pictures this time. The orbiter Discovery and the Mercury
capsules were my focus. I already rue not walking the radial engine collection with Pax as I have always
been fascinated with them with little idea on how they actually work. Cheers to all, TGIF (for us working
stiffs).

The would be the Uvard Hazy Facility , an annex of the Smithsonium Air and Space Museum.It use to be at the Garber facility in MD but moved to the present location and opened I believe in November 2004 and has been expanding ever since.




zuluhour -> RE: ALLIED SIDE ZULUHOUR(A) FCHARTON (J) NO FCHARTON (5/18/2019 10:54:28 AM)

You are correct. It is a fun trip. Lots of elbow room in there with plenty to see. The Horton creation
is there now as well as some more German stuff they are assembling. Would be a great field trip
for any of the forum to see. Here is the weekend update..

Thank you for the kind words, I feel like we are all related here. Time for an update, Francois
has been busy with the new job so turns are pretty slow but there is excitement brewing....
