More interesting question is... can Japan win in 1944-46 ? Saying win I meen to deprive allied side ability to strategically bomb Japan and have possibilty to ship oil and fuel from DEI and resources from Malaya, China, PI.
If Japan player can sink enough allied CV's, control Marians, PI, Java, Sumatra, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, territories in China I think this will be victory.
Is it possible ? Who knows :)
In my PBEM game is only late october 1942, but I destroyed 5 USN CV's, 5 USN BB's, 4 CA's, 15 CL's, 30 DD's and lost 1 CV, 1 CVL , 8 DD's.
Main battle is now going for Gudalcanal, both sides are loosing lots of planes and AK, AKL and AP trying to support ground units on island. USA troops landed on Karoline islands, but I dont care about them, they are not defendable in any case.
DEI become stronghold, with Mini KB and Yamato battlegroup patrolling seas and I dont think Allied navy will apear here before 1944.
So, if I will be able to sink all USA CV's wich will arive in 43 and first monthes of 1944 I think I can win the game.
