Nice raid, even without the KI-264s that is a lot of first rate aircraft torched for no cost. All those damaged aircraft could end up being a liability if the base is really that over stacked, and under staffed.

What is the replacement rate of the P-51H in this scen?

He gets around 220 per month in replacements and production, so this is not the disaster that will cripple him. I do think it will make him more careful though. Those 51Hs are the only fighters he has right now that can stand up to the Ki94IIs, and he just lost about half his on-map force.

I think he will struggle to rebuild these units because by my calculations, he has upgraded at least one more unit to P51H, he starts with 150 + 50 in the pool. He has a production of 220 a month, so he should have gotten about 130 more by now. All in all he has lost 220 to all causes, including two entire fighter groups yesterday. I know he has one more group at Iwo Jima and possibly one more at Okinawa.

So, two functioning groups, and a very small number in the replacement pool right now. If I can manage to do something like this again tomorrow (like hitting his damaged unit), then I will not be seeing that many P51s over Japan for a few weeks.

Two more days have passed without me updating the AAR. Sorry about that, dreadful week at work.

A short recap of what has happened these two days.

Day 1.
Nemo was psyching me into attacking Amami Oshima again. Dropping hints like "oh, the AF is closed and there are hundreds of damaged aircraft on the ground". Yeah...right. Like I didnt understand what would happen with the CAP over Amami Oshima.. I was expecting 2-3 CV TFs to take up position next to AO, but I was wrong. He brought 4 or 5. I think the CV CAP over AO on day 1 was close to 700 fighters. Nice try Nemo.

Instead I wanted to hit Iwo Jima and Manila with night bombers. The Iwo missions flew, but all Manila missions failed to take off. Results were not too impressive. I think we took out something like 20 P47Ns at Iwo, not many fighters were based there, it went from 400 to 100. To our surprise, there was a huge number of night attacks by B29s on my main airbases in Japan.

This is good for two reasons.
1) Nemo is reacting to my moves, which is bloody brilliant. The fact that he is leaving whatever cunning plan he was pursuing in order to react to my night bombings means that Im inside his head now. I believe this will not be easily visible, but Im suspecting he is putting up CAP at more bases, avoiding overstacking, setting up patrols etc.

2) Iwo has gone from 400 fighters flying offensive sweeps over Japan, to 100 fighters flying CAP.

Day 2
Nemo plastered three airfields in southern Japan. His B29s are flying anti-airfield missions instead of city attack. It costs me about 100 aircraft per target airfield and about 100 damage, but I think its worth it. My HI has grown from 20k to close to 90k and I need all the HI I can get.

Bloody brilliant indeed. There are not many who can get Nemo to surrender the initiative.

And then? What leadec to this abrupt break in this game? It was really interesting and PH strategies and tactics are very instructive as usual

I had some RL-issues that forced me to drop everything AE-related for several months. And now nemo is doing RL-stuff aswell. I think the forum a-holes caused him to burn out on AE pretty bad to be honest. It kind of sucks the fun out of the game if you get harassed on the forum more or less constantly..

OK, thanks for your answer. I fully understand how RL can be demanding. Too bad that your AAR vs Canoerebel was lazy as well due to his holidays, I really need to learn from you, please start more AARs .
Seriously, I like your strategic approach and your analysis. I find very interesting your use of feints as well. Well, I guess I could be called a parasite of you

Absolutely. I always have been an admirer of his intelligent and thoughtful posts.

yes, what better way to help a person who might feel harassed than a flood of emails ;)
