Certainly will not dispute the history of Singapore or your point of view. However, we do know that the British surrendered Singapore after a 7 day period of resistance. Your statement “An easy Japanese victory . . . would not be accurate” does not seem to reflect the actual event. Start: 8 Feb. Surrender: 15 Feb. Japanese casualties: 1714 KIA, 3378 wounded. Allied casualties: 5000 KIA & wounded, 85,000 captured. Casualty ratio: 17.6 to 1. An argument could be made that these stats describe a relatively quick and easy victory.
The solution presented was meant to answer the earlier question about how to model a drop in moral. Has nothing to do with forces involved or, easy or difficultly of a Japanese victory. As I stated initially, it’s just a tradeoff designed to achieve a desired effect.
