Just my luck. I went to a war, and a hockey game broke out.

It would seem that he has cancelled his movement into Yenan. Even using
the magnifier there does not seem to be a movement arrow.

-----------------------------------------
I does look more and more like he will make some level of attacks into China
in the Sian area. I see at least 4 more units in the area roughly WSW of Sian.
It is the most logical area to make an early thrust. We have no house rules
so all he has to do is rail the excess units from Korea/Manchuko to that area.
Although railing into Wuchang and marching to Changsha was/is another possibility.
I know he has about 1200+ around Yenan and it looks like much more that 2400 around
the Loyang area. He also has a lot of aircraft to use and a number of them are in
China bombing various areas.

If it is necessary, I am prepared to move at least 50 - 75% of the Chinese units to
India/Burma. My feeling is that even if he takes most or all of China he can not
get a 4-1 VP ratio in 1943. A 4-1 VP ratio is very hard to get as long as I don't
get stupid and/or allow a lot of units to get trapped/destroyed in China. A large
supplied Chinese army in India with the abundant supply and the large replacement
of devices in this mod would make an attack back into Burma and Western China possible
in late 1942 and/or early 1943. And coupled with that are the 25-30 USA air units
I have/will send there. We are playing with no withdrawals, so all those air units
originally assigned to the 4th USA Air HQ are available to be reassigned and sent
to war.

Dec 30th, 1941. Again, not much action. He had to attack Loyang( it was empty ). He has 2816 AV there.
He also has 2400+ in Tsiaotso ( 1 hex NE ). It looks like they are moving toward my positions. I will
have to make a decision soon. I doubt I can hold him in this area, there are too many hexes to defend.

He flew air attacks against Singapore for the first time. I had plenty of CAP up, but they did not shoot
down that many, but he lost a bunch to Flak.

Jan 1, 1942. A new year.

Georgetown fell today. No other great news.

In East China, this small picture.

Jan 2, 1942 - Jan 20,1942

I have not posted in a while, mainly because there is just not much happening. We are doing turns, just not a lot happening.

Here is the intel screen for Jan 21,1942

Notice that I have actually lost fewer aircraft than he. He has lost 104 A6M2s to Ops loss and 35 to air to air.
I would say that my ship losses to date are light given what he has available.
As I looked at this I noticed that my base VPs are much too high. It looks like GP may have either left in something
wrong or made an error. I will have to investigate The problem is that the large West coast bases ( SF, LA, Seattle, SD, and Portland ) are much too high of a base value. I just checked and it is a holdover from the original Focus Pacific.
Amazingly, I have played this mod a number of times as Allies and never noticed this. But I really do not watch the
VPs early in the game unless I feel I am doing badly. I does mean that we will have to just continue when the game says
I won, probably some time in 1944. I will inform Durnedwulf.

Jan 20, 1942

Here is the total ships lost for both sides in the last 19 days.

As you can see I have lost a few ships to subs and sunk a few of his with subs.
We had an engagement around Sorong and traded 2 DDs each.
The fun one was one of my fleet subs finding a working MK-14 and sinking the I-85.

Jan 20, 1942

Most of the action has been in Burma and Malaya.
In Mayala he controls all but Mersing and Singapore.
He has not bombed Singapore and the forts are at 6 and
building. I have both the 9th and 11th Indian Divisions
assembled and the leaders swapped out.

In Burma, I think I got a bad die roll at Pegu.

Ground combat at Pegu (55,53)

Japanese Shock attack

Attacking force 40107 troops, 382 guns, 32 vehicles, Assault Value = 1217

Defending force 10455 troops, 101 guns, 8 vehicles, Assault Value = 215

Japanese adjusted assault: 1180

Allied adjusted defense: 19

Japanese assault odds: 62 to 1 (fort level 2)

Japanese forces CAPTURE Pegu !!!

Combat modifiers
Defender: disruption(-), preparation(-), morale(-), experience(-)
Attacker: shock(+)

Japanese ground losses:
309 casualties reported
Squads: 1 destroyed, 52 disabled
Non Combat: 0 destroyed, 4 disabled
Engineers: 0 destroyed, 0 disabled

Allied ground losses:
6410 casualties reported
Squads: 141 destroyed, 2 disabled
Non Combat: 276 destroyed, 0 disabled
Engineers: 52 destroyed, 0 disabled
Guns lost 102 (102 destroyed, 0 disabled)
Vehicles lost 1 (1 destroyed, 0 disabled)
Units retreated 1
Units destroyed 1

Defeated Allied Units Retreating!

Assaulting units:
2nd RTA Division
33rd Division
1st RTA Division
4th RTA Division
15th Army

Defending units:
Pegu Fortress
1st Burma Division
-------------------------------
I realize that the 1st Burma Division is not very
good, but from 215 down to 19 seems to be a bit more
that I would have expected. But it is what it is, and
the 1st was completely destroyed this turn.
