Re: Spanking Lowpe (NJP72 vs Lowpe (A))

Aussie Jungle Division TOE explained here. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jungle_division I’ve just been looking at Aussie unit TOEs the last few weeks. I’ve wondered what happens to the units that withdraw as the Aus Army shrinks due to the manpower crisis of maintaining too large an Army. Do tho...

RE: 20 Jul 44 report

<t> Interesting on those new divisions....I've never played the Empire long enough to really get to know the 1944 situation, other than I know you get alot more low-quality ground troops. Obviously you have to really look for the CD guns within Special Base Force units and others, because IIRC there...

RE: Spanking Lowpe (NJP72 vs Lowpe (A))

<t> Very interesting move in Sept of 1942....I am not 100% sure what the naval losses are to-date, but if I am Japan I would be working on taking it back. He is probably already prepping a Division and some tanks for that purpose. <br/> <br/> Are you going to try to hold it, or just leave a garrison...

Pearl Harbor or Manila?

<r> This seems like the first question a Japanese player has to answer when embarking on a new PBEM. Pearl Harbor or Manila? What do YOU prefer?<br/> <br/> I can see benefits from both approaches, but curious what other think. <br/> <br/> Where KB is on Dec 8th to me is as important as what you can/...

RE: Spanking Lowpe (NJP72 vs Lowpe (A))

<t> Nice job...are you playing with stacking limits? If so, the real trick is going to be to get the Marines off before KB shows up. It's not the end of the world if you have to leave them, but that will eventually create another problem. I don't see a base force in the invasion fleet.....I would wa...

RE: May 23rd, 1943

<t> Why not produce the D4Y1 while you're waiting for the D4Y4? And actually, same question on the Ki-84a vs r-model? I can see the benefit of pulling forward those advanced models, but you should produce lesser models in meantime. <br/> <br/> Val to D4Y1 is a huge upgrade for the CVs, and one you s...

RE: I love Allied SigInt

Sorry, I was conflating this with another game!

There is a table of national experience somewhere. Generally, I see Japanese, UK, Indian units top out at 54 or so, Chinese at 50, Australian at 60, and USA at 55 or 60 depending on Army or Marines

RE: Spanking Lowpe (NJP72 vs Lowpe (A))

<t> Those sightings could easily be via Jake from Pagan or even Chichi Jima for Sealion; I wouldn't panic yet. As Japan I would have Jakes flying from both pretty early to cover that gap, so that's my guess.<br/> <br/> You are right about Val/Kate, if Drum picks up one of those it's time to panic<br...
