Andamanes / Nicobares:
After my first probing wave was unsuccessfull, I had to lick my wounds and repair the carriers. As the 1942/10 upgrades were coming, I waited to finish them to increase the radar range and give me a small advantege.
Once this was done, I took a Base Force and an Indian regiment to invade Car Nicobar.
Once more, this is rather a probing attack than a serious invasion.
I can't afford a big invasion without land cover right now, as he has Tojos which are far superior than my F-4F. So I have to get land bases first, before I can risk anything.
Without APA, AP and AK, unloading my invasions takes ages. In a serious invasion, it is likely that he'll send his surface forces under LR-CAP. While I have 10 BBs ready to cover my CVs and the invasions, it is still a high risk. He might sweep the beaches one or two days with Tojos, neutering my CAP. This would force me to retreat no matter what. As I can't afford to send LR-Cap over any invasion - my CV-CAP would be too weak - I have to stay close. This brings the whole invasion fleet into high risk as he sneds dozends of subs to confront me.
So I'll do small invasions with limited risk. If I achieve to conquer islands in the Andamanes/Nicobares chain, I'll build them big enough until they are able to provide LR-Cap over any invasion along the Burma/Sumatra coast. Unfortunately, that seems to be the only way to go without going all in.
As he knows my CVs are there, he has massed his troops, planes and ships in the threatre. I could reorganize, but that would take months. So I'd simply go it bit by bit as time is on my side anyways.
After the first invasion nearly conquered Car Nicobar, he - once more - started his infamous use of transport planes. An island can be as weak as it gets, the day after the invasion at least another 100 AV appear. I'm not sure whether that is how it should be...
Right now, another brigade is on its way to reinforce Car Nicobar. It isn't prepared for it, so this might become intersting....
Without any doubt: I am the spawn of evil - and the Bavarian Beer Monster (BBM)!
