I played Buccaneer as the Allies.
Very interesting scenario.
Little problems, Colombo had RAF units equipped with Hurri I, Vildebeeste, WAD or an error?
No aircraft types have any replacements at start.
My strategy was to take Pt Blair then Sabang.
No probs with Pt Blair with 2nd Brit Div, took it with plenty of time before KB arrived, I then sent the transports back to get the Africans.
The RN held off the KB, sank 1 CV for a little damage to a RN CV. I had dropped off some Seafires from a CVE onto Pt Blair to help with the CAP.
Didnt have enough force to take Sabang first try and sent the fleet back to Pt Blair to pick up a couple of Bdes and was just about to land them when the scenario ended.
No having looked at the japanese side yet, it would be good if the AI script could have the KB arrive south of Sumatra, In the Malacca Straits or at Rangoon , just for some variety.
Still won a victory, maybe up the VP for Pt Blair & Sabang to make the capture of both required, sinking a CV helped with the Allied VP.
