This test is a control test for series 5
using the same start turn as human test 5B
(Allied turn is in preparation)

It features a revised script
focused on submarine warfare
to help evaluate the revised submarines and submarine and ASW devices
incorporated into RHS. The script controls the Allied side, just as AI might do,
except it is done by hand. Being rigid and doctrinal, it means there is no
consideration of what I know as a player, so it tests the script. Once we have
rules that work we can program them - in theory. If we can discover such
rules. [AI is an idiot. So said a former chief Matrix programmer. But lots
of players like to play vs computer - so this is an attempt to create a set of rules
that function reasonably well.]

Here KB comes in close (too close, and gets caught too), and uses the Advance Force (i.e. the submarines) in a detection network to insure it finds targets. That part,
at least, worked. Comments are in CAPS after reports when germane.

I DEPLOYED S BOATS DEFENSIVELY OFF NORTHERN LUZON
HERE ONE GETS CAUGHT BY ENEMY ESCORTS, AND TAKES A HIT.
BUT THE NEW RHS SUBMARINE AND ASW WEAPONS MEAN THIS IS
ALMOST CERTAINLY NEITHER FATAL NOR DAMAGING ENOUGH TO
SEND THE BOAT HOME - ONLY CUMULATIVE DAMAGE WILL DO THAT
UNLESS THERE IS A LUCKY HIT.

VERY EMBARASSING, THESE TWO "RAIDERS" ARE BEAT UP
BY AN AVD, WHICH THEY ARE NOT EVEN ABLE TO HIT! THE
RAIDERS CAME UP FROM 'NANYO' [SOUTH SEAS] TO ACT
AS ADDITIONAL AIR RECON SCOUTS FOR KB - SINCE THEY
CAN OPERATE PLANES BETTER THAN SUBS CAN. I RESTRICT
GLEN % FLYING BECAUSE IN MANY SEA STATES THEY CAN NOT
TAKE OFF. THE % DEPENDS ON THE WEATHER - AND MAY BE 0

THE FIRST RAID ON PH IS UNUSUAL BECAUSE OF ZERO JAPANESE LOSSES. RHS TRIED TO REDUCE THE EXCESSIVE LOSSES IN STOCK, BUT USUALLY THERE ARE SOME - PARTICULARLY AS I FLY DEFENSIVE CAP AND LRCAP. NOT A SINGLE FIGHTER GOT INTO THE SKY. AA GUNS ON LAND ARE DISABLED, BUT USUALLY MANY REPAIR UP ON THE FIRST DAY, AND A FEW GET LUCKY. NOT THIS TIME. ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COIN, THE AIR BASE IS NOT DOWN, AND DAMAGE TO THE AIRFIELD WAS NOT ENOUGH. ONE WAY I REDUCE AIR LOSSES IS NOT TO SEND FIGHTERS IN AT 100 FEET - WHICH MAY HAVE BEEN A MISTAKE THIS TIME.

Here it is clear - ALWAYS defend.

A tiny group of PT boats - and a couple of independent motor launched -
contested landings off Northern Luzon. They achieved a mission success
in spite of a covering group sinking two PT boats and the HDMLs. The
amphib commander - sighting the boats - ran for home! [Never mind his orders]

Submarines also sank ships from different invasion groups.

Always defend.

My general reaction to the submarine attacks is that the US S-boats should be hitting more often than they do, because they used the rather reliable Mark 10 torp, not the Mark X1V, and did not experiment with magnetic exploders.

This is why S boats use a different torpedo. I have not modified the stock system. Further, USN torpedo reliabilty can
be influenced by a player selection at the start of a game: "reliable USN torpedoes" can be turned on - causing the later value
to be the case from the start.

I have noted only one instance of an S boat hitting but the torpedo didn't detonate. Perhaps there are more - there should be -
but both S boats - and RNN boats - and RN boats when they arrrive - all have a better hit chance than the USN fleet boats.

S Boats use Mark 10 torpedoes with a dud rate = 15%
Fleet Boats use Mark 14 torpedoes with a dud rate = 80% (a non trivial difference)
RN uses Mark VIII torpedoes with a dud rate = 10% - even better than an S boat.
The Dutch use two torpedoes -
the 45 cm H1 and the 53.3 cm W1 - both with a dud rate of 10%
The Russians use the Type 53-38 with a dud rate = 10% - so reliable it remains in service (in foreign countries).
All these values (with the possible exception of the 53-38) are derived from stock.


The one torpedo I DID define is the German G7a with a dud rate = 10%.

Today the very same PT boat unit - sans two sunk yesterday - forced a major invasion group to stop unloading
and head for home - in spite of "absolute" threat tolerance - with the loss of three large ships sunk and no one rescued.
The covering group failed to find the PT boats at all. It was a night action.

Otherwise, things went badly for KB in terms of air losses - never mind favorable exchange rates - and now it is headed
for home to replace losses - instead of the intended extended cruise.

Allied submarines are starting to reach their stations, and they are disrupting the Japanese planning. A force of surface
ships departed Balikpapan headed for Tarakan - to refuel - before going North to contest the Japanese landings.AFTER ACTION REPORTS FOR Dec 10, 41

This is certainly turning into the submarine/anti-submarine test I hoped for.
Allied submarines are the main way the Japanese are losing ships, although
the two largest ship losses - both AMC - were to 5 inch and 4 inch guns!
Allied bombers, never mind inadequate numbers, are also taking a toll.
On Luzon 3 battalions have reached Baguio City, and a whole division is at Balinta Pass. The enemy is going to have a problem in the mountains. But the B-17s had to flee Mindinao already - although they still scored today!

Off Malaya Force Z is making its THIRD pass! The British have not seen an air strike, and are not afraid of em!

We see a thousand to one casualties in China - very rare - but because of doing an attack right. We also see what happens when odds are bad in China - the Chinese win, go figure. The method that works is combined arms. Hong Kong fell to the first assault - but this was deliberately delayed to soften up with artillery and air bombardment. Also I threw in a corps HQ and an extra division - both really matter. Even so - some Japanese squads were lost - not merely disabled.
