IJA pushes us out of a key blocking position in the wooded hills SW of Sian, we lose about 170 squads and more importantly the door to Sian is open. Didn't have any illusions about being able to hold it long term, but was hoping to hold out a bit longer than this.

Enemy goes 1:2 at Kukong. Not a lot we can do here, but hoping the enemy is struggling to bring in reinforcements.

In Burma the IJA 48th Div launches a shock attack on our main force between Prome and Bassein (over the river). They go 1:2 and take heavy casualties - 260 disabled/destroyed squads

Enemy captures Wyndham

KB remains near Raoul I.

A poorly routed TF (idiot staff!) sails a bit too close to Noumea and the CAs Australia and Louisville are torpedoed. Damage to the Australia is light, but the Louisville will laid up for some time with 48 FLT damage.

The enemy's 90th Inf Regt captures Cairns, but does not have any support units with it. We begin bombing with a mix of USAAF B-17s and RAAF squadrons flying from Townsville and Charter Towers.

Essentially nothing happened.

KB is 7 hexes east of Auckland with heavy overcast coating the region. Opponent claims this is why no strikes were flown. I'm cynical...I would have preferred he have a go, we have 4 squadrons of USAAF fighters on CAP at Auckland.

Meanwhile, what on earth is this? A rufe shooting down a flying fortress? Every dog has his day, I guess.

Consider using the Wirraway for bombing his troops. With some experience and low level (2000 to 4000 feet) attacks they should begin to achieve something, and they help tire the CAP if there is any present.

We have one squadron in action along with 10 Hudsons. You guys recommend using the planes with limited bomb loads against troops or the airfield?

The KB pulls back to the North without flying a strike over NZ. Kind of a waste of time for your most valuable asset IMO, but I guess he did take out nearly 100 VPs of warship with this little foray so perhaps I'm harsh to judge.

Enemy lands at Christmas I. (IO)

IGD mops up the last of our forces at the southern end of Java.

Enemy Paras took Akyab, RAF begins raids from Chittagong and Calcutta. This is a problem because they are cutting off the retreat of our two divisions in lower Burma.

March 17, 1942

We lose a tanker and AVP to Betties flying from Noumea...poor routing on my part, rookie mistake.

The IJA 16th Div joins the 48th at the hex between Prome and Bassein and they dislodge our two divisions with a shock attack. Not ideal. Somewhat luckily for us the 46th Indian Brig takes the brunt and is essentially destroyed, the actual divisions retreat in ok order.

Enemy troops are one hex south of Cairns moving down the road, harassed daily by RAAF Wirraways and Hudsons. B-17s join them this turn.

Derby falls to a small enemy force.

The 46th Indian Brig and 77th Heavy AA Regt are wiped out in Burma.

Dutch warships led by CL Java intercept APDs operating off the coast of Northern Oz near Derby, I think they were moving out some of the troops that took the base last turn. We sink two, but three get away.

Our retreat south from Daly Waters (units we pulled out of Darwin) is being hit hard by IJA Sallies, units are not going to make it out in very good shape. This is representative:

Morning Air attack on Gull Battalion, at 76,132 , near Daly Waters

Weather in hex: Thunderstorms

Raid spotted at 25 NM, estimated altitude 8,000 feet.
Estimated time to target is 7 minutes

Japanese aircraft
Ki-21-IIa Sally x 37

Japanese aircraft losses
Ki-21-IIa Sally: 2 damaged

Allied ground losses:
123 casualties reported
Squads: 0 destroyed, 5 disabled
Non Combat: 0 destroyed, 17 disabled
Engineers: 0 destroyed, 0 disabled
Guns lost 5 (1 destroyed, 4 disabled)

Mandalay, mostly evacuated but for a small rearguard, falls to the IJA 5th and 56th Divs.

The IJA Paras from Prome launch a shock attack across the river to cut the coastal track, but are held off by the BFF Brigade fairly easily. This keeps the route of retreat open for our two divisions.

Cairns is now showing search a/c, not sure if he has AV support though?

IJA 65th Brig lands at Cooktown

Our opponent has set up a bombardment run with BBs Mutsu and Nagato from Shanghai to Wenchow. Obviously doing a lot of damage, but not a great deal we can do about it. Moving some subs to try for a shot.

Zeroes flying from Adak sink our YPs at Dutch Harbor...interesting.

Morning Air attack on TF, near Dutch Harbor at 171,50

Weather in hex: Heavy rain

Raid spotted at 20 NM, estimated altitude 5,000 feet.
Estimated time to target is 6 minutes

Japanese aircraft
A6M2 Zero x 21

No Japanese losses

Allied Ships
YP-74, Bomb hits 3, and is sunk
YP-73, Shell hits 3, Bomb hits 6, and is sunk
YP-92, Bomb hits 4, and is sunk
YP-72, Bomb hits 2, heavy fires, heavy damage

Aircraft Attacking:
21 x A6M2 Zero bombing from 100 feet
Naval Attack: 2 x 60 kg GP Bomb


SigInt indicates both the 38th and 33rd IJA Divs are embarked, apparently heading to Tricomalee, so that's the one place we can confident they are not heading based on past shenanigans.

We had fallen a bit behind on our AAR updates, but now we need to get caught up because things are heating up fast and ole VAC wants the advice of his forum friends.

IJA hammers our retreated units South of Sian, they're not one hex away. About 1,600 AV there.

3rd Carabiniers Regt arrives at Akyab and their attack is...disappointing. He's flown in some engineers and AV support. Now have fighters operating from the airstrip. We move a couple of Hurricane squadrons up to Chittagong to sweep the area.

The Hurricanes do alright over Akyab. Opponent is the 11th Sentai flying Oscar Ic's. Combat reports look better than intel report - we lost 12 Hurricanes vs. 16 Oscars reported downed. Most of the losses were the model I's vs. the IIb's.

I find this mind boggling...he's committed almost 1,500 UNRESTRICTED AV to China. To me, this indicates he's not going to for any major. It's wasting one of the huge advantages of Scen 2.

Air search picks up two enemy TFs, apparently light amphibs inbound for Canton I. We've been expecting this so have couple Wickes-class DDs on station. CL Honolulu and her escorts are about 15 hexes away, they head in. CV Hornet has her air group upgraded and was moving to the SoPac to join up with our other CVs. She's 31 hexes away and will move closer, but we obviously have to be careful of an ambush so won't deploy without being careful.

In Buma/India the Hurricane I's are pulled out and we move in a squadron of USAAF P-39s (II Fighter Command, sent them to India early in the game). They do well against the Oscars over Akyab, although that may have do with the Hurricane taking the brunt of the battle going in first. Recon suggests the enemy is down to a dozen or Oscars.

We've seen some enemy activity around Lord Howe Island the last few days, so we sent some DDs to investigate. Certainly did not expect this prize, no idea what the plan was with this:

Night Time Surface Combat, near Lord Howe Island at 103,175, Range 10,000 Yards

Japanese Ships
AV Sanuki Maru, Shell hits 19, heavy fires, heavy damage

Allied Ships
DD Henley
DD Jarvis
DD Craven
DD Gridley

90th Inf Regt is halfway Townsville, we harass away with LBA

Under the assumption that our sweeps would fly against the depleted Oscars, we launched a horde of RAF Blenheims against Akyab. Unfortunately, sweeps do not fly and we lose 12 Blenheims. However those that make it through do a lot of damage:

Allied aircraft
Blenheim IV x 27

Japanese aircraft losses
Ki-43-Ic Oscar: 1 destroyed on ground

Allied aircraft losses
Blenheim IV: 4 destroyed, 5 damaged

Japanese ground losses:
9 casualties reported
Squads: 0 destroyed, 1 disabled
Non Combat: 0 destroyed, 0 disabled
Engineers: 0 destroyed, 0 disabled

Airbase hits 10
Airbase supply hits 1
Runway hits 25

Allied aircraft
Blenheim IV x 16

No Japanese losses

Allied aircraft losses
Blenheim IV: 2 destroyed, 6 damaged

Airbase supply hits 9
Runway hits 10

Allied aircraft

No Japanese losses

Allied aircraft losses

Recon shows 33 damage to the AF now.

The enemy TFs we thought were coming to Canton diverted to Baker I., we send the DDs after them.

The PoW gets her Sys Damage into the 30's so we send her from Perth to Capetown.

The DDs hit home at Baker, taking out a couple loaded PBs. The accompanying TF appears to be APDs, which are too much for old Wickes-class cans to handle:

Over Akyab the sweeps clear the remaining Oscars and the Blenheims get an unfettered shot. AF is now showing 52% damage on recon. The British 7th Hussars have also arrived and the BB Royal Sovereign closes for a bombardment.

In China, the IJA takes back Loyang from a Chinese unit (most of our forces moved across the river to Tsiatoso), but they used 3 divisions. To me pulling those forces away from an attack on Sian or Sinyang is a big win and helps delay him.

Broome falls to a couple SNLF companies.

5 IJN TFs, including a carrier TF, show up in NE Oz. SigInt says the 38th ID is not inbound to Cairns...almost assuredly we have a major landing on our hands.

Our opponent pulls the Oscars out of Akyab, replacing them with Nicks. The P-39s handle them easily.
Blenheims take the damage up to 70% (we have that Mitchell PRU active now out of Calcutta, so 9/10 recon, think that's pretty reliable).
Royal Sovereign apparently isn't interested and doesn't make it, next turn perhaps?
The ground attack gets 1:1 odds with us taking minimal casualties. Suspect we'll be able to dislodge him, he only has light forces and we have M3 tanks.

An intrepid Wirraway commander decides to attack Cairns. He loses most of his planes but let's us know the IJA 38th ID is ashore. Also that the covering units are Hosho-1 and Tainan Ku S-1. So I guess we probably have 2-3 small carriers in action here.

I was going to chime in that your Carabiniers could do a shock attack and not be damaged based on those previous results, and then I saw you took Akyab anyway.

EDIT: As an FYI, just because the AV ratio is bad (say 1:4), doesn't mean you aren't winning the battle. Assault value is purely a measure of number of infantry squads, tanks, etc., and has nothing to do with the actual combat power of those devices. Your Carabiniers must have some tanks (I don't recall the TOE of that unit) and the anti-armor numbers in his devices were probably very low.

It's great to see P-39s doing sweeps, but those II Fighter Command fighters would come in useful in NE Oz right now. How is your air superiority in that region?

Cheers,
CB

Not great in NE Oz. That call on sending II Fighter Command to India was made early on, before we had much of a feel for where he would push.

Our saving grace right now is that Cairns is such a small AF we're able to maintain air superiority, but we're in trouble if he's able to build it up. We only have 1 USAAF squadron and two USMC squadron to supplement the RAAF at present.

The lack of fighters early on in Oz is scary. You'd think the Aussies would have kept some fighters at home in real life.

This why I advocate transferring the PI fighters to Oz, even though the PP cost will spent for a temporary utilization since they withdraw in the summer. The period leading up to summer can be critical.

The USAAF squadron we have there is an amalgamation of the surviving fighters from the PI, upgraded to P40Es.

We have two 13th AF squadrons in NZ being loaded for transit and a third already en route.

I'm pretty mad at whoever insisted on sending II Fighter Command to India. I probably made the argument to diversify the types of fighters in our theaters. What an idiot. I bet he even created a forum tag based on his favorite hometown food.

Fairly quiet turn.

Our B-17s are being frustratingly disrupted by Rufes he has deployed at Lord Howe and Raoul Islands. The range from Auckland to Raoul was such we weren't doing a lot anyway, but Lord Howe we had pretty well glassed. At this point I suspect the ground units are probably largely recovered. BB Colorado will bombard Lord Howe next turn. Hopefully that'll knock out enough Rufes we can keep them suppressed. We weren't doing a whole lot to Raoul because of the range anyway, so that's less of an issue for now.

In Burma our retreating units move one hex clear of the IJA paras. Enemy has some units moving west from Magwe, presumably trying to cut off our retreat.

We counter the Nicks LR CAPing near Akyab and our P-39s take down 3-4.

Enemy uses LRCAP over the 90th Inf Regt one hex outside of Townsville and Zeros take down 15 RAAF aircraft, mix of Hudsons, Wirraways and Kittyhawks. Frustrating because we had been sweeping but decided it wasn't worth it since he wasn't flying CAP. We'll see how Kittyhawks fare against Zero LRCAP next turn...with the penalties for LRCAP I think the should do ok.

Only one Rufe flys from Lord Howe, but our B-17s still get significant damage...I guess that's from AA? Bit disappointing with how long they take to repair. BBs New Mexico and Warspite are up for bombardment tonight

We can safely continue the bombardments because what appears to be the KB has popped up near Canton I. apparently covering an invasion force. We had some minor surface assets and a USMC DB squadron in the area last week so he must have thought he needed the KB. We haven't actually reinforced the island, obviously we evac our aircraft and CL Honolulu makes tracks.

With the KB sighted and enemy light carriers retiring from Cairns we decide the time is right to launch invasions of Lord Howe and Raoul Islands. TFs begin loading at Sydney and Auckland. We have about 100 AV for each. Lord Howe gets a battalion of USMC paratroops, 49th Aus Bn (evaced by seaplane after PM fell) and 4 companies of Aus commandos. Raoul gets 2 USMC raider battalions and the Kiwi N Force Detachment.

A P-39 successfully sweeps Magwe, knocking down 5+ Oscars for just 2 Aircobras. I'm really surprised he hasn't deployed some Zeroes in Burma and is letting us get away with this.

Our Kittyhawks try a sweep near Townsville, but despite the Zeroes flying LRCAP 3 hexes from their base and 10,000 feet below, they handle us easily, we lose several planes.

As predicted, two naval guard units land at Canton I. and easily capture the base (we had not reinforced the small garrison). We are not positive the KB is operating here, but air search certainly looks like it is.

Warspite and Mississippi hit Lord Howe but don't appear to do a great deal of damage...they're not expending that much of their ammo. We'll try a more skilled and aggressive commander.

In the North Pacific there is a TF at Adak, the BBs Tennessee and Arizona are in the neighborhood, they will close and possibly engage.

Regarding your post about sharing intel/plans, I think the benefits of posting up-to-date info and plans outweigh the risks: you get good and timely advice from the forums and, unless your opponent is reading this thread, Opsec risk is pretty low, especially since many posters usually only read one side or the other. Would it be possible to get large pictures of certain important theaters and their situation?
