T257 7/30/44 In the Pacific the Japanese Bot has suffered a heavy defeat at sea. The Musashi Group and Kido Butai, the carrier group that struck Pearl Harbor, were destroyed. The US Pacific fleet sunk every last ship. Note all the Japanese carrier planes were lost with the carriers.

T261 8/27/44 After Luzon is taken then Formosa is next and then maybe a few China ports and airfields followed by taking the surrender point on the southern hex of Okinawa. Only then will the Allies win the scenario.

T268 10/15/44 Sea interdiction strike against Japanese surface force moving from Hainan to attack US fleet off of Formosa. Note the German Q Ship made to look like a Royal Navy light cruiser. It should have surrendered with the loss of Berlin but no!

thomasharvey -> RE: Counter Number Files (9/21/2021 8:09:36 PM)

T274 11/26/44 Invasion of Okinawa is underway! It may be premature but it might work. Nearly all the Marines are formed and will make the assault.

T275 12/44 It is taking 3 weeks and 9 assaults by all forces to force surrender of Okinawa in the one hex that triggers the end of the war.

T275 12/44 Here is what enables the Marine units to attack from shallow water.

[image]local://upfiles/50703/BCF8D65859A14940A215D4C4E2B2EBB4.jpg[/image]




thomasharvey -> RE: Counter Number Files (9/23/2021 5:10:36 AM)

T276 12/10/44 In the end the Japanese expected the Allies to invade Okinawa from the north. It has deep water and the Allied Army units can participate. By using the southern shallow water area the Japanese Bot did not send in the remainder of its fleet on a suicide run. It would have made no difference however. Only a handful of Kamikazes managed to attack the fleet.

Here is victory at Okinawa by taking the surrender point in 3 turns and 9 consecutive assaults. Nearly every Marine was needed.

rhinobones -> RE: Counter Number Files (9/23/2021 3:46:29 PM)

Interesting that the Bot had five of the six defenders on Minimize Losses. Expected that they would have held to the last man.

Congratulations on the victory and thank you for the comprehensive AAR. Good work.

Regards
