FF initiates in Italian Coast.

Do Axis wish to send any planes? There are many to choose from.

Orm -> RE: Rematch 4 player game (Orm, Peskpesk, jjdenver and Mayhemizer) (8/6/2021 6:19:46 PM)

Yes. The German He 115C (NAV3) to the 0-box. Thank you.




Mayhemizer_slith -> RE: Rematch 4 player game (Orm, Peskpesk, jjdenver and Mayhemizer) (8/6/2021 6:22:24 PM)

Both rolling 7, no combat.

Over to JJ, combat will not continue tonight.




jjdenver -> RE: Rematch 4 player game (Orm, Peskpesk, jjdenver and Mayhemizer) (8/7/2021 3:24:27 AM)

42 ND i2 (cont):
ground strike:
SU launches 2 with ART and 2 with planes in Russia. Germans have lots of intercept possibilities. Soviets can counter in south, but no more in north. What will Germany fly and where to RTB (if you can already decide - if not it's fine of course)? Also if you want to give instructions about how to handle the combat that will be fine, otherwise we can go blow-by-blow posts to forum.

peskpesk -> RE: Rematch 4 player game (Orm, Peskpesk, jjdenver and Mayhemizer) (8/7/2021 7:19:22 AM)

No planes in the north.

Plz send 6 str FTR(BF 109 F-3) in the south, target bomber. Return to 2-5 Inf Div Hex.




jjdenver -> RE: Rematch 4 player game (Orm, Peskpesk, jjdenver and Mayhemizer) (8/7/2021 9:44:11 AM)

Ground strike:
SU Yak-9M counter in south to make air combat +0ax/+1al

SU FTR shot down, AX FTR is aborted, bomber goes through. Surviving SU FTR RTB's whence near Kiev.

AX have 3-3 AA in north that can counter (just east of GS hex) - will it fire?

No, thx and no AA in the south.

US INF div from 63,30 to Marseilles

CW INF div from 62,31 one hex NE
CW MOT from 63,31 one hex NW to 62,31

SU moves a lot of units in Manchuria and a few shuffles against Germany but not much

Debark
CW ENG to 63,30
US GAR to 63,30
US AA gun to 63,29




Mayhemizer_slith -> RE: Rematch 4 player game (Orm, Peskpesk, jjdenver and Mayhemizer) (8/8/2021 10:56:23 AM)

Allies disembark units to France and go for an attack.

Will Axis use defensive HQ support?

Allies send CVP Swordfish to ground support (1 factor).

Will axis send ground support? Allies have plenty of fighters to intercept.

There are so many planes that can join the combat I think it's better to check from the game what planes you want to send.

Picture and odds from declaration phase.

Yes. Germany send the FTR3 just NE of Toulouse as a bomber, and use the FTR2 in the attacked hex as escort.

Germany will target enemy fighters in the air combat. Any German surviving aircraft will land in Lyons.

Germany will stay in the air combat as long as any bombers remain, and then abort.




Mayhemizer_slith -> RE: Rematch 4 player game (Orm, Peskpesk, jjdenver and Mayhemizer) (8/8/2021 1:32:31 PM)

I forgot to say that both engineers are used in combat, first loss to ENG.

CW uses HQ support too.

That showed on the picture. And in the odds. [:)]




Mayhemizer_slith -> RE: Rematch 4 player game (Orm, Peskpesk, jjdenver and Mayhemizer) (8/8/2021 2:07:54 PM)

CW sends FTR2 and 2xCVP to get +1/-1 odds to air combat.




Mayhemizer_slith -> RE: Rematch 4 player game (Orm, Peskpesk, jjdenver and Mayhemizer) (8/8/2021 2:21:20 PM)

After 2 rounds both bombers get through.

I was little lazy in second round and rolled both rolls at once, thinking results don't matter. I figured out, that as only CW has bombers they will choose A to fighter and then abort from combat if that happens. I will roll separate rolls in the future to avoid such situations again.

To be honest, I believed there will be bigger air combat with more Axis bombers. Bomber was there only to absorb hit to save a good fighter. I guess they have other plans...

Mayhemizer_slith -> RE: Rematch 4 player game (Orm, Peskpesk, jjdenver and Mayhemizer) (8/8/2021 2:24:20 PM)

AA fire is weak (lowest roll was 1)

Mayhemizer_slith -> RE: Rematch 4 player game (Orm, Peskpesk, jjdenver and Mayhemizer) (8/8/2021 2:35:47 PM)

Allies take the hex with a loss of ENG.

Rules questions to be sure: Only HQ create port to coastal hex where units can land, not ENG units?

Answer: Only HQ changes embarkation, and debarkation, on non-port hexes. ENG have no effect.




Mayhemizer_slith -> RE: Rematch 4 player game (Orm, Peskpesk, jjdenver and Mayhemizer) (8/8/2021 4:07:05 PM)

Final result

Central hex units advance to the new hex (HQ, GAR and CW ENG).

Mayhemizer_slith -> RE: Rematch 4 player game (Orm, Peskpesk, jjdenver and Mayhemizer) (8/8/2021 4:22:11 PM)

I need to consult USSR/Pacific commander about rebases.




Mayhemizer_slith -> RE: Rematch 4 player game (Orm, Peskpesk, jjdenver and Mayhemizer) (8/8/2021 6:28:48 PM)

Rebase

CW FTR2 from UK to attacked hex in France.
CW bomber from Sahara to Algeria.
CW FTR2 from Central Africa 9 hexes NW towards Algeria.

FF FTR2 from French Guyana to Brazil.

US LND3 from East Coast to NE Newfoundland.

Picture after rebase phase.

Thank you. [:)]

Couldn't get it to compute in my head. And didn't want to reload an old save to check. [:D]

Nov/Dec '42
Impulse #3 (Axis)

Ground strike continued:

Germany launch one ground strike versus Murmansk, and Italy strikes the CW defenders just outside Murmansk (see picture).

The Soviet Union has two fighters in Murmansk that can intercept the German raid. Germany has 2 FTR2, and one FTR3, available for counter-interception.

Will USSR intercept?
