a new battle begins, stay tuned

We have decided to play Rising Sun PBEM scenario with historical turn plus some simplified home rules;

The opening move was 7 BB's sunk at PH plus Force Z damaged - both Prince of Wales and Repulse got *** hits. It seems the IJN should have a little easier time with not much BB left for the USN. We shall try to use this time given to us by our brave pilots ....

So much for the BB's in the Arctic strategy! Who's the lone survivor at Pearl?

There is none, only US BB's in TF or Diego survived

In the following turn I got a little payback sinking 2 DD's by LBA from Singapore.
A landing of the 71st Phil div at Daveo failed to take the base even no jap troops were there
However I will try to keep Zamli busy

but the early battle of Midway was far from historical one....
of these CV presented below none survived.... they were just surprised by KB parking off of Midway on a way back to Tokyo........

Just after that, Admiral Nishimura with his 6 BB's only managed to sin 1 CA and 3 DD's......... he must be replaced for his incompetence

Ouch that hurts

Again too eager to response. I thought the Jap TF's where already on their way home

Now we will fight a "what if Japan had won Midway" scenario.

I think Yamamoto would utilize this victory much better than I will, but nevertheless it is quite an interesting situation. 7 BB lest means only 3-5 will be used during next few months. 3 CV less means 5-6 US CV till the end of 1942.
We shall see what next days will bring us.... if I only had more divisions

Doing VERY well for the beginning of January 1942! And not a single Japanese warship sunk yet.

Yeah, will be interesting.

Right now only Yorktown is available and the useless HMS CV's

I have to correct re Pearl attack, Oklahoma survived but needs a huge amount of repairs.

I confirm this........
huge loses of planes at Palembang :(

however this morning (when I was watching what was the repply before going to work where I am now) I noticed that both your heavy task forces will have to visit shipyards for a while
my KB's finally decided to arrive at the scene and lend some air support

however my repply will be only on Monday as I am off straight after work...
I can hardly wait to look at the details and analyse the scale of damages inflicted;

I shall try to post some screenshoots as well - that was really an interesting turn though with not much sinking - just one or two allied cruisers...

Yes, there were eight BB's at Pearl. Interesting that the Oklahoma, one of only two permanent losses historically, should be the survivor. And she's about the worst of the lot.

re Oklahoma, in the game there are not many difference between the old BB's.
Anyway I have not much to work with so I take what's there

Now I have to try to hinder zamli's progress as much as possible until late 1943.

I can't entirely agree. The West Virginia class (8 X 16") will perform much better against the Nagato than will the Nevada class (10 X 14").

All of the eight BBs that begin in Pearl Harbor are similar - but I usually hope the survivors with include (in order of priority): a) Maryland / West Virginia (16" guns) b) California / Tennessee, c) Arizona / Pennsylvania, and lastly d) Nevada / Oklahoma.  The last two especially since they are the only ones with durability <100 (96, I believe).

OK you got me, and I got a lemon with Oklahoma

Nothing I could change though, it was the start up.

I contrast to loosing the CV's due to my stupidity

Well, I suppose Capt and I are just splitting hairs over which BBs survive Dec 7th - the good news is 3.2 handles the refloating of sunk BBs by returning approx 50% of them later in the war - so you should get 3-4 of them back in the 1944 timeframe.  Of course, they would be of more use in 1942

Looks like my Dutch subs and my B17 had a good day, damaging 1CV + 1CVl and deflecting a landing attempt at Java

Nice work!  Java may hold beyond history and Wake already has - looks like your LBA is managing some victories.

Perhaps, perhaps not. Strong opposition by LBA can prevent landings.
Sometimes the TransportTF my even change to Cargo, then you have to go back to a base and build the TransportTF again. Same happens when a landing was unsuccessful.

Zamli getting lazy so I have to update

He got stuck at Java, India and Australia

A 3rd Jap landing at Wake failed

While he is busy in the south sea US BBTF's visited Midway. Unfortunately my landing TF's did not make it in 1 turn so we have to see how the next turn will develop
