The plan in the Indian theater now is to, of course consolidate Rangoon and Burma, setup supply routes to get supplies to Rangoon and create airfields for bombers, especially my new B29s. As soon as possible we will land at Victoria Point, which is looks like John is rushing to reinforce from the other side at Chumpon with multiple sigint showing some brigades being sent there by boat. I hope to move down the Malayan peninsula to eventually reach Singapore, helped of course by landings along the coast. Sabang is a target, though surely expected by John, but nonetheless one that can focused on; and as I build up bases in the area, I can restrict John's ability to mount a defensive effort to hold or take back Sabang like he did in CR's game. I can then walk down towards Palembang perhaps. The narrow passageways between the Malayan peninsula and Sumatra can be a scary place for my capital ships to operate.
Agreed it is a dangerous place for the Allies. In my game I was able to execute a crushing Allied defeat at Sumatra. Especially if the battle is near Sabang or V-Point or further up the coast, Japan can operate freely to a large extent. If Nakhon Si Thammarat and Singora are built up with Air HQs. They can own that part of the world. Bombardment proof bases and KB in some form can park in 51.71 and slaughter any landing there. Very tough place to land. I other parts of Sumatra there are many areas that work similarly with the resources Japan should have at the point in BTS. Kuala Lumpur is nice. Even further South, Muntok is nice as well. I am biased toward bases that cannot be bombarded or like Muntok is hard to bombard easily, at least while Sumatra is still in the Empire. Make sure you recon those areas to avoid nasty surprises.
