One partisan appeared in Bombay, India.



That's a real pain to get rid of as it is too far from other cities for attacking units to be in supply. Will either need the commitment of an HQ or to creep the attackers along the coast, while keeping the sea supply chain going to the Arabian Sea.

The loss picture doesn't really tell the story does it? Losing CV + CVP though is significant for the RN.

This has been I think a great opening turn for Axis.

Sep/Oct '39
End of Turn

Looking at the destroyed units, one might think that nothing much happened except that the Polish Army was somewhat reduced in strength.

Mayhemizer_slith -> RE: Rematch 4 player game (Orm, Peskpesk, jjdenver and Mayhemizer) (5/1/2019 5:27:07 PM)

German markers on defense?

I move on with that and will redo if needed.

US marker on Japan pool.




Mayhemizer_slith -> RE: Rematch 4 player game (Orm, Peskpesk, jjdenver and Mayhemizer) (5/1/2019 5:38:24 PM)

US chooses entry option resources to China and one marker is moved to tension pool.

End of Turn

Axis end of turn, part one:

Germany place both pact markers in the defensive pool.

Preliminary planning:
Germany - Save 4 oil. 3 oil in Prague, and 1 in Berlin - 15 BPs
Italy - Save 1 oil in Milan - 2 BPs
Japan - Save 2 oil in Tokyo - 10 BPs - Japan may need changing the resource destination to free up CPs.


Stay at sea:
The following units stay at sea.

Germany:
Baltic Sea: 4 x CPs

Italy:
West Med: FTR2 (1-box)

Japan:
Sea of Japan: CP.
Japanese Coast: 5 x CPs, 5 x CA (3-box)
China Sea: 6 x CP, CV + 3 x CA (3-box)
South China Sea: 3 x CP, CV + 2 x BB, CA (3-box)


Return to Base:

Germany:
Baltic Sea: SCS -> Kiel, FTR2 -> 51,37, NAV3 -> 46,36

East Med: FTR2 -> 74,39; 4 x SCS + CP -> La Spezia
CSV: SUB -> La Spezia
CVB: SUB -> La Spezia

Japan:
China Sea: AMPH + 3 x TRS -> Fukuoka


Use Oil:

Germany:
All units except ships and one LND3 (He 111H) are reorganized for 2 oil (2.4). Use 2 saved oil in Berlin.

Italy:
5 units, FTR2 (Re.2000) + 3 x SUB + CP, are reorganized for 0 oil (0.45).

Japan:
4 units, NAV2 + 2 x LND2 + AMPH, are reorganized for 0 oil (0.4).

Everything else is good, but Hainan resource does not want to go to Canton. Both are idle at the moment and there is unused CP on South China Sea...

Edit: Now I got it. It was painful. I had to send Hainan resource to Japan. Then I was able to change location to Canton. It took quite a long to do this. Let's see how CW is doing.




Orm -> RE: Rematch 4 player game (Orm, Peskpesk, jjdenver and Mayhemizer) (5/3/2019 8:56:47 PM)

And with the program routing like this, I just want to face slap myself.

I think that I had no issue with it. I'll take a look at it now. And I wonder if loading a save to the production step makes any difference. I find it sad that I even have to wonder...

Mine was just like yours. Manchurian resource is going to Canton. When routed to Japan, everything should be good. But there was some mystery problem.

I had same thing with CW. I had to route resource from Canada to some random (used) factory in UK before I was able to send it to idle factory in UK.




Orm -> RE: Rematch 4 player game (Orm, Peskpesk, jjdenver and Mayhemizer) (5/3/2019 9:12:12 PM)

Yes. I had that issue. But that is not what I highlighted. The Manchurian resource went to Shanghai by the CP in the China Sea. Why using up a CP when you can rail the resource the entire way? Bah.




Mayhemizer_slith -> RE: Rematch 4 player game (Orm, Peskpesk, jjdenver and Mayhemizer) (5/3/2019 9:24:12 PM)

Production should be good now. Too late to do turn end, I continue tomorrow.

What was the fate of the Danish ship?




Orm -> RE: Rematch 4 player game (Orm, Peskpesk, jjdenver and Mayhemizer) (5/4/2019 8:33:21 PM)

And so the tide turns, and the Allies have taken over control of the events. [:D]

No impulse today.

I started playing the impulse (and investigating how CW production is doing) and noticed one Italian FTR is disorganized. I continue tomorrow and edit that.

Many escorting ships to seas.
The Queens sail to Sydney, loads MIL and sails to west.

TRS to CVB.

US
3x CA from East Coast to West Coast.


Rail move
French INF from Brest to west of Metz.
USSR INF HQ to 60 hexes east from Polish border.


Land moves
USSR moves units in Persia and Polish border.
Chinese adjust line in north and try to put 2 units into pocket in south.


Rebase
2x USSR bomber to cities.
2x CW bombers to Gibraltar.

No declarations of war.

Land: Germany, Japan, Italy
Combined:
Naval:

No port strikes.

Germany fly one LND3 to the 2-box of the North Sea.

Japan send one AMPH from Japan to the China Sea. There the Korean MIL is embarked from Seoul.

HMS Terror can initiate combat in the North Sea. Will CW do so?
