HEART ATTACK MODE... damn those USN subs that are patrolling off Japan as they attack shipping there nearly daily and I can't do **** about it for now... Growler hits Akagi more than once but all torps are duds... this could have gone really bad even though the carrier is just one day away from a major repair yard... 6 DDs as escort for a single carrier and they couldn't even keep a spotted sub from attacking...

Ground combat at Port Moresby (98,130)

Japanese Deliberate attack

the day wasn't over and on New Guinea Japanese assault divisions were again ordered to engage in combat... Port Moresby falls on our second attack and 13 enemy units surrendered, including two US regiments... the enemy lost 600 pts to ground losses this turn, losses in China included! While Rabaul still holds Port Moresby falls as expected and it has cost the enemy several hundred first line aircraft, 20000 troops and several ships... the Japanese lost about 50-70 aircraft, a couple of small freighters and a carrier was torpedoed (light damage) so to sum it up it wasn't worth it trying to hold Port Moresby... I always advocate to make a stand at Port Moresby and I consider this base to be well suited to do this but trying to hold Rabaul and Port Moresby in early 42 only works if the Japanese isn't committed...

I fail to find superlatives to describe what my Armies achieved in China in the last couple of months as the Chinese take one defeat after another, causing insane losses within their lines... this was the main Chinese Army that was left after we destroyed a first one with nearly 200.000 troops and another 1000 combat squads are destroyed today... the Chinese are no threat anymore in Northern China and mostly consist of understrenght corps that are trying to run to Sian now...

Well done at PM.

Caveat: I've virtually zero late-war game knowledge. That said, aside from preventing an auto-victory, your opponent has to be sweating a bit. Sink CVs: check. Sink TKs: check. Destroy Chinese LCUs: Check, Check, and Check. Now you can add some nice Western units to the list.

Thanks! I don't think Ed is sweating yet because I have not gone far in terms of territory. Victory point value is somewhere around 3,5:1 but getting it up further is only possible if I continue to really hurt him while not taking losses which isn't that easy.

I just don't get it what Ed is doing here... have brought four tank regiments with my unrestricted divs that are defending Canton and those tank units are now going to flank the Chinese Army as they are not guarding their flanks at all... if this works he will have moved 150k troops into Canton where he has no chance to achieve anything and has his troops cut off... I can then counter any attempt to relief these troops with my ground units and several hundred IJAAF medium bombers that can fly from Canton's level 8 airfield... guess Ed thought I would panic with his move in Southern China but this is probably the worst place to try something like this...

we had to sacrifice another small unit but Siangtan is now fully cut off and over 150k troops are trapped in a base that is already low or out of supply... Allied adjusted av of only 613 is just horrible on the defense and my Army should be able to take the base on the first try if he doesn't get super lucky... that would be the third total defeat of a Chinese Army of around 150k troops... I don't have any doubt that China is lost for the Allied, it's only a question if I want to take it all or not...

Allied fighter pilots in India are shocked when they encounter a high flying fast IJAAF fighter for the first time today, the Tojo... we have well trained pilots and the Tojo is clearly superior in terms of speed but the first encounter with enemy fighters also clearly shows that the Tojo suffers from the same problem also the other IJ fighters do, lack of firepower... while we get about 5 times more firing passes on the enemy fighters it's only a damaged enemy 4 out of 5 times at best, it's nearly impossible to down an enemy fighter with a gunvalue of 10... not even speaking about the Oscar but also the Zero suffers with a gunvalue of 12 but the Tojo is even worse with 10... nevertheless this will be the main fighteraircraft for the next 18 months (roughly) until the Frank arrives some time in late 43 hopefully...

a second Tojo unit comes in to sweep doing even worse than the first one with nearly nothing but damaged enemy fighters... some of them are write offs or crash of course but more than halve of the damaged aircraft survive... 1 out of 2 bursts from Allied fighters results in an instantly shot down Tojo...

WOW, just look at this! Next Chinese Army is totally destroyed in combined ops of the IJA and IJAAF... the assault on Central China is a full success after we destroyed and Army there earlier already and today we destroy nearly 7500 combat squads... all that the enemy has left and is combat worthy is an Army of about the same strenght that has moved North of Changsha to Ichang... never achieved such victories in China that fast... victory points for Allied ground losses are around 10,000 now...

Tojos on sweep get a 2:1 which isn't all that impressing and the combat replay did look way better but that's the result of their sh*tty gun value... if the Tojos had a gun value of 14 or 16 the result would be like 4:1 in air losses...

Sub attack near Koggala at 31,51




Japanese Ships
SS I-162

Allied Ships
BB Ramillies, Torpedo hits 3, on fire, heavy damage
DD Hotspur


thought Ramillies would have been sunk off Port Blair for sure as she took no less than four torps but she made all the way back to Ceylon where an IJN sub was waiting... guess without that attack the BB would have made it but another three torps send her to the bottom... shows the importance to have subs at the couple of choke points on the map where Allied shipping would move for sure...

TF 13 encounters mine field at Pago Pago (148,161)

Allied Ships
xAP Lurline, Mine hits 1, on fire

Allied ground losses:
Guns lost 2 (1 destroyed, 1 disabled)


finally we're lucky with one of our offensive minefields... seems like Pago Pago is one of Ed's hubs as there were already 40k troops reported when KB sank a BB task force off the island... don't think that Type 88 mine will be enough to sink the xAP when she's not even heavily damaged... no doubt he will clear the minefield before more ships will go in and out...

Submarine attack near Ominato at 119,55

xAK Ryugi Maru, Shell hits 3, Torpedo hits 1, on fire, heavy damage

ahh damn it... I regret sending this damaged freighter back to Tokyo as an enemy sub was waiting off the coast of course... usually I don't send any unescorted ships around anymore but there were 2 freighters from a ressource convoy colliding and I decided to send them for repairs without sending an escort for them first... took Grampus something like a dozen torps to finally hit Ryugi Maru as she kept missing and missing and missing...

the last real Army the Chinese have is sitting at Ichang... other than that Ed only has either trashed units, trapped one like at Changsha or units that have respawned so in total the Chinese Army is not really a monster anymore... not sure about supply but it has to be rather low I'd say... when I first said China will be decided in 42 I'd now even say China will be cleared in 42...

and here's the scoreboard... not unexpected we are only at a 1.7:1 in airlosses due to high op losses but both ship and ground losses are not that "usual" for this date I'd say... with the loss of his carriers and so many high value ships due to his forward defense we really rack up points and the same goes for the ground losses... no danger of autovictory at the moment but if we keep killing ground troops it will be close

we also keep bombarding Rabaul as we have another IJA division ready for disembarking there... made another mistake as the amphib TF was set to unload when it was ending movement at Kavieng last turn so it was totally unloading the division at Kavieng... have to reembark the troops which takes at least a day...

if my super experienced Sallies could just do some damage to his ground units at Rabaul but rough terrain and minimum forts make it impossible to do any harm to ground troops...

BANZAI! Next Chinese base falls and the enemy is retreating towards Ichang where he still has roughly 200k troops but surely many disabled squads... Ichang is clear terrain and he should have long abandoned the base to stabilize the front but as it stands now the enemy troops are reported marching East... if Ed really starts another offensive with his last somewhat usable Chinese Army then I don't know what to say as he can't achieve anything and my airforce alone will cause several hundread disabled squads in no time whenever he moves into a clear hex and my bases are well defended, probably 1000 av are enough to hold a base vs 3000 Chinese if we defend in anything than clear and behind some forts...

this is what my medium bomber force can do to the Chinese at Ichang in one strike... the Chinese can't even nearly afford losses like this as they will hardly get their squads out of disablement again and if then it burns more of the precious supply... guess supply situation for the Chinese is really bad already...

recon again shows nearly 20 bombers at Port Blair and Vildebeests don't have the range to fly from India to Port Blair so they must be coming from replacements at the base... that would mean the base still has 20k+ supply which would be absolutely surprising to me with all those bombardments so far... doubt he was flying them in from carriers as I don't know what they should achieve with their minimal range and my cruisers always come in from 9 hexes to bombard...

first wave of the reinforcing division for Rabaul comes ashore and I wasn't all that happy to see 50 disabled squads, the division is 60% prepped for Rabaul... while I wasn't amused to see this during the replay I was actually totally pissed when I checked the div during the turn and saw exactly 100 disabled squads within the div and the unit down to some 200 av... really bad die rolls for me at Rabaul for a second time already, I guess the division will have some 250 av at best when everything is unloaded which should be by the end of tomorrow, only some support should be still on the ships at the end of day two...

not only SS Trout but also Seadragon operating very close to Truk and I have no ASW forces available that could do any harm to those subs... 24 aircraft on nav search spot them most days but that's about it... need some 70 ASW skill medium bombers and then it's going to become harder for the USN subs to operate near my bases...

crazy to see these losses within my troops from a bombardment again... do this three days and my reinforcing division is unable to participate in combat and I have to bring a fourth IJA div to take the damned place... we outnumber the enemy 3:1 in combat troops already, have more guns and more experienced units but another lucky die roll for the defenders in our next deliberate attack and we have to bring the next division... doesn't mean I have any doubts to take the base though and we are not losing troops, we only suffer disablements like 98% of the losses...

Japanese troops finally take Rabaul after heavy fighting... in the end it took me longer to seize the base than expected but I still see it as a total victory as Rabaul was nothing else than a sinkhole for the enemy... losing four US CVs, over a dozen cruisers and destroyers and dozens of freighters and transports plus the ground troops just doesn't make it worth at all for the Allied... our losses were more than light and it will take well into 43 just to recover for the Allied from the losses suffered at Rabaul...
