25 Nov 44 report

The Allies are steadily bombing out industry with Gifu and Tsu aircraft production recently flattened. These are the top fighter units sorted by experience level. It doesn’t really matter that they are still decent pilots, they can’t shoot down enough bombers per day to turn the tide. All CV based f...

Re: Japanese upgrade flow chart

This is my summary from Scenario 1 for the factory upgrades that can be done for free.
Anything not on this list resets the factories to zero.

Re: Japanese upgrade flow chart

A few months ago I started playing around with a chart for Scenario 1 PDU off. This line diagram summarises the Scenario 1 IJAAF Fighter air unit PDU off upgrades. It doesn’t show all the linkages, but enough to visualise what aircraft need to be built for units to be able to upgrade. Yellow borders...

Also, how much supply you landed compared to what you think the defenders have might help you decide.

19 Nov 44 report

Very little action, other than massed sweeps and medium bombers adding to the craters at an empty Hachinohe airfield. The big news is that CV Shinano arrived! I might send her bombers ashore and upsize her fighter unit to 51. That is the Combined Fleet moving to collect her from Yokosuka, from where...

Re: Gensui jdsrae (J) vs SolInvictus (A). IJ War Council room

I guessed wrong. The Allies switched back to strategic bombing and flattened most of the decent aircraft factories at Hamamatsu. GEN Sugiyama is preparing a morale boosting speech for the General Defense Army before the final battles arrive. He is reportedly taking inspiration from General Sir Antho...

LCDR Endo’s ASW Div of 3x Otori Class Escorts were sent to Hachinohe with about 550 fighters set to LRCAP overhead, range 1 from Iwaki and Sendai. I would have preferred to send a less capable ASW Div on this mission but it was the only one within range and available for this opportunity. This is th...

11 Nov 44 report

Hakodate was captured by the Allies a few days ago, with units now starting to be destroyed. That gives the option to buy them back. There are plenty of manpower/vehicle/armament points in the pools and still over 1.8M supply at Tokyo. The Allies are probably only a week or two away from invading Ho...

1878 PP to buy out the 1st Division, leaves about 10 left. 6th Div is also at Bangkok having marched from Burma, but it will take nearly 40 days of PP saving to buy out. A few tanker task forces or en route to Bangkok to try and drain the remaining fuel from Malaya and this “economic region”. Resour...

3 Nov 44 report

This is something post-worthy amongst the carnage. I was a bit annoyed when the I-180 boats upgraded to SST and despite still having torpedoes couldn’t be set to war patrols. I set them in a picquet line with Sub Transport orders just to act as “radar picquets”, but this shows that they can still us...

29 Oct 44 report

The Allies stepped up their bombing campaign in NE Honshu, flying into multiple IJAAF and IJNAF fighter units that had just been flown back to forward airfield. Soryu-1 lost 2x KIA and 4x WIA. Unfortunately CPO Sakai was one of the two KIA… He will be posthumously promoted to WO. All of the fighting...

25 Oct 44 report

A few more clicks and unlike other air units, the max number of pilots = 3x the max number of pilots. MAJ Mitsumoto is a flying commander. It seems standard for those pilots to have a below average Air skill. From memory, his high Inspiration skill (or is it Leadership?) is of more use in a training...

The first training air unit arrives Fugaku-tai. I've read the theory on these units but it is good to have one to see what it can/can't do. A few of the main things as seen in the image: 1. Only training missions are allowed for this bomber unit. I thought I read somewhere that they could fly NavS b...

This is the only part of the map that matters anymore. Combined Fleet is back at Yokosuka and the Allies are about to capture Sapporo. I’ve labelled each task force so they show the main ships within each in the black/white pop out box. Combined Allied Air Forces operating from Sakhalin have destroy...

Re: Gensui jdsrae (J) vs SolInvictus (A). IJ War Council room

DD Yugiri lives! Fires are out and all minor flooding was pumped out before the next turn. The shore parties at Batavia start on repairing some of the 80ish system damage! It will be about two weeks before she can start the cruise back to Manila to fully repair. In other news, Hokkaido was invaded b...

Re: Gensui jdsrae (J) vs SolInvictus (A). IJ War Council room

Japanese damage control being what it is, I suspect DD Yugiri won't make it. Still a clear Japanese victory however, which I imagine is always great to have this late in the war! 5 enemy DDs down, only about 500 to go!? The IJN has ships repairing at Shanghai, Hong Kong and Manila, so depending on ...

CL Jintsu escorted DD Yugiri back to Batavia where it will now be left with shore parties to help fight the fires. VADM Kobayashi was in port for some reason, so RADM Hirata was replaced. This was an accident as I created a new task force with auto commander selection instead of just merging CL Jint...

After spotting Allied DDs sniffing around the Sunda Strait in recent turns, 2x CL Divs with escorting DDs were ordered to patrol the hex with max react=6 and low threat tolerance. 2x Emily units are searching the Indian Ocean but there are likely Allied forces lurking out there. The RN CVs haven't b...
