This does not have to do with this PBEM game but my other PBEM game.

it is June 1942 and through a series of unfortunate mistakes by my opponent and some dumb luck on my part i have managed to sink 25 TKs(14 British, 4 Commonwealth, 1 Dutch, 6 U.S) and 4 AOs. Is this significant in any strategic way? I think most of them were loaded with fuel/oil on their way from India to Australia?


Yes it is significant. Keep killing them, the Allies barely have enough tankers. They can use cargoes for fuel but it is no efficient and slows down the supply build up. If you are also sinking lots of cargo ships as well, then keep it up.

For China, first make sure that all of the VPs are garrisoned. Then target all production centers for capture. Also bomb the one port the Chinese have along the coast to get port fuel hits. Make sure, if playing a person, that all of your production centers are protected by CAP. You don't want to waste supply rebuilding Chinese production. Try not to destroy units, just surround them, and keep them isolated. At least until you take the two Chinese cities where the destroyed units return. Also, if the enemy lets you close the Burma Road, do so even if it sacrifices a bunch of paratroopers.

On China, you are not in terrible shape, but just looking at the map it doesn't look like you're on a pathway to wiping out China. That's OK, you can still do some damage. Clearing the Changsha area is good.

You should prioritize a push on Sian. It's important, also because you need to get to Lanchow to stop the flow of Fuel to the HI in China. If you take Lanchow, you don't really need to even bomb the HI; lack of fuel will turn it off. He's on good terrain, so you'll need tanks and artillery to break through, and you'll probably need to rotate units.

Do you have a HR on Strat bombing in China? If not, you should go ahead and bomb all the HI and LI, stop supply production

Also, I agree with Ranger Joe on the TK/AOs; the Allies can absorb some losses, but you can constrain movements. As far as xAKs, points are good, but strategically you can't sink enough to really dent the Allied war effort....they get soooo many

Hi Q-ball thanks for looking it over. I've had the burma road closed since jan 42. Ledo was flying in some supplies but i destroyed the refinery there and closed the airfield. I destroyed the refinery at Lanchow a couple months ago. I have destroyed almost all HI in china except i can't reach Chengtu. The LI seems harder to destroy. I have all my Heavy Art (20 units), armor (24 units) and Eng units with Assault value and engineer squads (10 units) along with the 11th army, north china army, 1st army, 12th army (24 Divs) all converging on Sian within 7 hexes. I don't know what else i can do.

He is bombing the production. By sinking both the tankers and the cargo vessels that could also carry fuel, he is constraining them somewhat now. While the Allies do get lots of them later with plenty of xAKs to spare, if they are hauling fuel then they are not hauling other important items.

I've been having some luck switching Nells, Kates and Val squadrons to ASW. They don't have much experience and no training for ASW to speak of yet but they seem to be getting a little bit done.

Just leave a small percentage of the air unit on training and possibly another part on rest if the fatigue goes up, both pilots and aircraft. If you fly ASW at 1,000 feet, you have a better chance of surprising the sub and bombing it but a lessor chance of detecting it. The Vals should stay at their normal altitude because they will dive bomb.

It’s an assumption of mine, but most of the reported “hits” I am seeing on allied subs in my game must be near misses at best.
I think the IINAF search and ASW pilots are the biggest exaggerators in the world.
Roughly half the claimed subs sunk seem to show up later, perhaps damaged, but still very much afloat.

Thanks jdsrae. i'll get the hang of it yet.

thanks also for the discussion of training in your AAR. I used some of that information and transferred 82 Army pilots to TRACOM. Like you, i'm going to keep my 80+ pilots in the KB for now.

Do not attack PT Boats in duck/goose weather and not on no moon nights. If nothing else, use strafing fighters or float planes.
