Logistical Issues: In anticipation of the attack on the Marinaras, I have moved 162,000 Allied troops to Rabaul. This is a level 7 Port now and a level 9 AF. Normally, this would not be a problem but the base is rated at 45,000 troops. Either it doesn't rain there enough or there it's really hard to dig a latrine in RabauL.
I have nearly 40,000 supply there but it's asking for 80,000.
Are you kidding? There are two active volcanos there to incinerate waste and sterilize your backside with heat and Sulphur Dioxide. Water isn't the only answer!
So the volcanoes can incinerate the waste, no need to dig latrines. But there is only one volcano and Simpson harbor is the caldera for it:
The Rabaul caldera, or Rabaul Volcano, is a large volcano on the tip of the Gazelle Peninsula in East New Britain, Papua New Guinea, and derives its name from the town of Rabaul inside the caldera. The caldera has many sub-vents, Tavurvur being the most well known for its devastating eruptions over Rabaul. The outer flanks of the highest peak, a 688-metre-high asymmetrical pyroclastic shield, are formed by thick pyroclastic flow deposits. There is no sign of a pyroclastic shield along the rim of the caldera, making the location likely underwater, on the caldera's floor.
. . . By 1943 there were about 110,000 Japanese troops based in Rabaul.
Of course, with Simpson Harbor over a volcano, just think if it would have went off when the Japanese fleet was there?
Seek peace but keep your gun handy.
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing!
