From: Tucson, AZ
Turn Ten / 11 Dec 1940 / 0600: Day Four of Operation Compass. As with Game Turns Four and Seven (start of Days Two and Three), time to review the Commonwealth’s Logistics Status, Air, and Naval Gunfire status, as well as the Disposition and Plan of Action for its Ground Forces.
Fuel = 329 and Ammunition = 29.
Looks like focusing on Counter Air Missions (for both my Fighters and SAS) is working. Lost zero Fuel and Ammo to Italian Air Interdiction. Will continue to focus on Fighter Counterair.
It’s been just over a day since my Blenheims got hit hard by Mike’s Flak vicinity Sofafi. Given the loses to Flak, when rested, their approximately 50% effective.
During Turn Nine, Mike was successful swinging round my Southern Flank. As of right now, 11th Indian Brigade (with it’s Matildas) plus all of 7th Armored Division are Cut-Off / Out of Supply.
Need to pull all of Selby Force – now that the 1st Libyan Division is Destroyed – and the 7th Indian Brigade North/Northwest into an Attack Position so, next turn, they can start to Counter Attack the Italians that are just East of Alam.
Will continue 5th Indian Brigade’s Attack on Camp Tummar + add in parts of the 16th Indian. Don’t want Mike pulling forces from that fight and pushing North into the Flank of 7th and 4th Armored Brigades.
