April 2nd, 1944 - Fall of Rangoon
Sorry, miscounted again. This turn is actually the 2nd of April, with the previous being the first, and with it Rangoon finally falls. Better yet, we see victories across the board and while we don't destroy the garrison at Rangoon, it is severely mauled and forced to flee to a base from which we can probably cut it off and destroy it for good. Moreover, John's 40k troops on the Indian border are in real trouble. All in all, a nice day on the land front in Burma. We should begin proper attacks on Moulmein soon enough and will, of course, be bringing in all types of base units to turn Rangoon into a major airbase. John did us a favor and maxed out the airfield to 8(7). The port needs to be built up, currently only at 4(6). Pegu will also be built up to to max out its airfield.
To cut off the 40k at Bassein, we will run LRCAP over the base to hit any air transports and send our fast tanks currently north of Rangoon further north to the rail junction between Bassein and Prome. Not even sure we need to devote forces from Rangoon to investing Moulmein and can probably use them solely for mopping up the Burmese interior and cutting off as many IJA troops as possible.
