Sorry, but southern western China looks bad....

also, why Wake has not been taken?

The same for southern Andaman islands (or are they just under supplied?).

Another thing to think about with respect to recon. You can put some Judy C recon planes on a fast carrier or fast baby carrier, and get within 17-21 hexes I recall and use them to recon.





I did not understand the 17-21 hexes part of the drill here..

I am working on trying to clear the rail in SW china, but the troops are dug in.

I attempted to take Wake twice - was repulsed on the ground once and by allied CVs early in the war. Never went back.

Southern Andaman are simply empty and I just never landed troops to change the base to Japanese - same with the little green dots in the DEI - maybe half a dozen dot bases that I never landed at nor autoconverted over.

Those dots can make great air search outposts for Allies. Fly air support and supply in, stage Catalinas and enjoy the view. Japan would not know unless recon directly or pay attention to operational report sightings.

I have been reconning most of them - maybe not as often as I should, but I have done some recon of them. Its a little late to play cleanup now with the massive attack in Burma, but I will make notes for my next game. Although I have been thinking of crossing to the dark side and playing a game as the Allies just for knowledge of their OOB. I am truly in the dark as to what they get and how much - let alone when.

Doesn't take a lot to occupy for good those islands...load a single APD with few troops and send it to land.

Doesn't take a lot... a part from additional burden and workload

Burma:




The Burmese front has basically collapsed from initial plans and I am planning to hold NE of Moulmein and in the Jungle and rough terrain there.

Lashio still holds with its 2 IDs and the fragments of units to the west are still holding as well. The fragments have all had portions flown out so they can be rebuilt quickly and easily once they are overrun. I have even flown out small pieces of each ID at Lashio for same purpose.

Toungoo has held against several attacks, but nothing major is there. A single Tank Rgt is holding the base while the support units flee SW along the road. A lone 25mm AA unit will remain behind when the Tank Rgt pulls out. The units are moving in combat mode and helping in the defense as they retreat in orderly fashion. Once they are almost out of the hex, I will order the Tanks to retreat and everyone but the defending unit should clear the hex in the same turn.

Rangoon is besieged by enemy Armor and Infantry but has a large force holding it sitting behind strong forts (level 4 or 5). I plan on holding Rangoon as long as I can before falling back to the Moulmein Defensive Area. Once Toungoo falls I will begin withdrawing from Rangoon so I don't get caught in a pocket there. Barges are being used to haul units out of Rangoon to Moulmein, along with supplies. A TF of Tankers is loading up on oil / fuel there to haul south so we leave nothing behind for the allies.

Moulmein Defensive Area is 1 hex NE of Moulmein in the Jungle. I am moving AA, Arty, RF Guns as well as Tanks and Infantry there to hold it.

Rahaeng - Pisanoluke Area:
I and feverishly building up these 3 bases - mostly forts and air fields for fighters. Most of my AV Support will end up at one of these 3 bases as it flees Burma. These bases will provide fighter support while Bombers fly in from places like Bangkok and Tavoy.

I also have Thailand Units moving up the road a bit from Chiang Mai to hold that path as well as another unit moving to Luanqprabang to avoid allied air drops behind my lines. Udon Thani is also being built up some for additional air fields.

A unit from Hanoi is also moving north along the trails to the west to insure our flank.

China:




The China front is fairly stable due to my lack of attention here. I should have cleared the rail to the west months ago, but forgot about it due to the activity in Burma and Solomons.

I have fresh troops moving along the rail bombarding the 5 Chinese Corps there daily with an attack every 4-5 days. Four of the Corps are trashed but one is in good shape. Once I get him beatup the units should retreat to the west making the fall of that position easier.

I have move divisions than I can stack in one hex at a time so I am keeping them a hex away and moving them in to replace beat up units after each attack - trying to keep up the pressure.

Bombers from Hengyang and Changsha bomb them almost daily as well.

SW Pacific:




This front is fairly stable as well. The 49th Aus Battalion at Wewak is trapped and I am strafing them daily with Nicks.

The 3rd US Marine Raiders are moving up towards Kavieng, and I have had little successful strafing them due to LR CAP . The Marine Battalion will face off against a SNLF at Kavieng and I don't think they have the firepower to beat them.

Other than that not much is happening here. I am continuously moving supply from Rabaul to Manus and then north and have so far moved over 20k supply from Rabaul. I want to get Rabaul down to around 30k supply before I leave it alone. Units at Rabaul are going to probably die there unless I end up airlifting more of them out when the time comes.

Just remember that you need to withdraw EAST, not South ...

I feel this is mostly a sideshow. Your danger is that you get leapfrogged and then isolated. YOu can afford to lose land here, what you cannot afford to happen is getting units cut off and isolated for the balance of the war. POW's are a bad thing for you. Be sure you have exit plans for all of your units, and where you cannot make a good plan, then consider getting them out. Leave a small fragment behind, sure, but you do not want to the ability to control your units.

Yep. Once I abandon Moulmein it will be eastward, with a few small units heading south to reinforce Bangkok. I have roughly 2 million units of fuel / oil in Singapore I want to haul home and don't want to lose it any earlier than I have too. Another couple months and I should have enough fuel / oil in Japan to last through 45 - that's all I care about.

+1

I hate giving up Singers due to the port/RSY, but you can't really hold it. Always tough to decide what units I leave there ...

I checked last night and I have enough Oil / Fuel in Japan to last until Aug 44 right now providing I don't use any for ships - which we all know will happen. But I have a nice cushion of fuel in Japan. I'm sure it has helped that the KB hasn't seen any action in many months - simply sitting in port - although she is moving right now to repair yards for the 4/43 upgrade -- which I wonder if Mr Kane is waiting for a week or so to hope I'm in repair yards and unable to respond to any moves he makes.

Its April now and the push in Burma is continuing, the air war in SW Pacific is picking up again and no signs of the North Pacific being built up at all although I stayed in the area 1 turn too long trying to bag some merchies (most likely bait) and the Allied Death Star caught my CVEs and sunk them I was part way home and turned around to try to bag the merchies when I shouldn't have been greedy and just went home.




Burma:


My units West of Lashio are dwindling fast and probably next turn will be destroyed completely. Thats fine as I either have bits of them air lifted out or are small enough they will rebuild quickly when I buy them back.

Lashio is still holding although the allies are only bombing from the air and bombarding from land. Not sure he has enough land forces here to push me out without a long bombardment / air campaign.

My roadblock SW of Toungoo was destroyed last turn (a small 20mm AA unit) opening the road for the allies to march down to Pegu and cut off Rangoon. I figure he wants Rangoon's airfield as he has not bombed it once yet. Or maybe he wants the LI for supplies ?

He Deliberate Attacked Rangoon this turn and was rebuked, but lowered the forts by 1.

Ground combat at Rangoon (54,53)

Allied Deliberate attack

Attacking force 82209 troops, 1307 guns, 2060 vehicles, Assault Value = 2957

Defending force 28927 troops, 390 guns, 463 vehicles, Assault Value = 919

Allied engineers reduce fortifications to 3

Allied adjusted assault: 3038

Japanese adjusted defense: 2313

Allied assault odds: 1 to 1 (fort level 3)

Allied Assault reduces fortifications to 3

Hoping alot of those disabled vehicles are tanks so it may be a couple turns before he attacks again. With the road to Pegu open I am abandoning Rangoon. All units there have been ordered to march to Moulmein along the road. I am leaving the Divisions in Combat mode in case he attacks again, but everyone else is in movement mode for speed.

Burma Continued:

The allies finally bombed my new line of resistance 1 hex north of Moulmein. 48 B-25s flew in fast and low and were greeted by a wall of flak

Morning Air attack on 7th Ind.Tank Brigade, at 56,54 , near Moulmein

Weather in hex: Clear sky

Raid detected at 37 NM, estimated altitude 1,000 feet.
Estimated time to target is 10 minutes

Allied aircraft
B-25C Mitchell x 16
B-25D1 Mitchell x 32

Allied aircraft losses
B-25C Mitchell: 5 damaged
B-25C Mitchell: 1 destroyed by flak
B-25D1 Mitchell: 32 damaged
B-25D1 Mitchell: 3 destroyed by flak

Japanese ground losses:
81 casualties reported
Squads: 0 destroyed, 4 disabled
Non Combat: 0 destroyed, 12 disabled
Engineers: 0 destroyed, 0 disabled
Vehicles lost 14 (1 destroyed, 13 disabled)

Aircraft Attacking:
14 x B-25D1 Mitchell bombing and strafing from low level *
Ground Attack: 3 x 500 lb GP Bomb
14 x B-25D1 Mitchell bombing and strafing from low level *
Ground Attack: 3 x 500 lb GP Bomb
15 x B-25C Mitchell bombing from 1000 feet *
Ground Attack: 1 x 500 lb GP Bomb

Losses were much higher than reported in the combat report so many of the B-25s must have crashed on the way home.

My Naval Construction is still going full speed and by the end of May I should have 2 new CVEs and 3 new CVs joining the IJN. Once these carriers arrive I will either begin accelerating DDs or cut naval production to save HI.

My fighters still cannot compete in the air versus the allies, but in early May I will get the N1K1-J George and Ki-110-I Tony for what should be a massive upgrade for both IJA and IJN fighters. I am planning on letting 2 of the 5 George factories turn into production (and then be increased to 60 each) and the other 3 will rollover to the N1K2-J George.

As I replace my land-based IJN fighter units with Georges, I will be moving in some higher skilled pilots and see what they can do with the much better air frame. I do plan on keeping 2 units of A6M2 Zeros (as long as I have replacements for them) for deep penetrating escorts or sweeps.
