Some month ago I started new game but we are progressing slowly, partially my fault(holidays etc.) and I am bored so decided to start AAR.
I've been struggling to find opponent here on the forum but had more success on the discord channel. Thanks Telemecus.

We are playing scenario 1 with following setup
1 day turns
FOW - ON
Advanced weather effects - ON
Allied damage control - ON
Dec 7th surprise - ON
Reliable USN torpedoes - OFF
PDU - ON
Realistic R&D - ON
No withdrawals - OFF
Historical first turn - ON

Only HR is no 4E bombing under 10k.
We don't have any restriction on moving restricted units. My opponent didn't want to, said something about keeping things to move in China. Well I suppose everything Japan can do, Allies can do better. Chinese are already looking forward for en mass holidays in India.

PH strike was more than potent. Every ship bigger than DD was hit. Wee Vee have been "lucky", hit by 4x 800kg but one was dud and that probably saved her. 3 BBs are sunk outright with one more following in few days.

TFs move in number sequence, with the lowest number moving first.

At Manila on December 8th, always create Minesweeper TFs first, multiple ones.

That way your minsweeping TFs will lead the exodus out of the port clearing a path for what follows.

Its not a guarantee no following TF will encounter mines, but it reduces the chances.

I know that. They simply stayed at Manila and didn't move at all.

Next time change the home port to Bataan and send them there with routing instructions "Absolute, Direct".

Nice move with Adelaide. She starts out with decent crew experience and now it will be very good.
Get her rearmed before the big boys arrive .

That was probably the reason. Next day I switched home port to Bataan and problem solved.

I agree. Also 6 DDs sunk, a DM and a PC as well. So there are a few escorts out of the way. I also would not be surprised if the San Francisco sank either.

Thanks, luckily all cruisers will survive and still better than losing 20-30 subs in Manila.

If IJN ASW is hitting your subs this early, you must be using them in shallow waters. If you can make your intercepts in deep water, the IJN depth charges cannot get down to your operating depth yet.

The small Dutch Subs and S-boats seem to be harder for the IJN to hit in shallow water. Of course, good captains are essential. I think it was Lowpe or Lokasenna that did some testing and found that captains with lower aggression (55-64 or so) did better at making attacks and avoiding ASW in shallow water. Greater patience I suppose. Highly aggressive commanders also tend to surface and use their gun when a torpedo would be better, so they get shot up in return.

I am doing exactly this. S-boats and small Dutch subs in shallow waters trying to get hits on invasion TFs but it seems Japanese ASW is better than I am used to.

I like to use the Chinese transports to pull at least part of the Hong Kong units out so they can be rebuilt immediately. They can be sent to India for that.

They can pick up troops, they don't have to be based there. Or use PBYs in Manila, they can also pick up a piece of the unit from Guam, Midway can pick up pieces from Wake.

You can just use a portion of the PBYs, even just one from each group. All you have to do when you set up your Search, ASW, Training is to leave enough percentage for 1 PBY to pick up/transport troops.

Don't forget to check your faster ships like APDs and the xAK "Banana Boats" to see if they will go into a Fast Transport TF. This type of TF can also pick up troops. I am not sure if they can do it if the troops are not in a base - i.e. they have been kicked out of their base to a coastal hex. Patrol Aircraft can do this for sure.

Dutch units are useful but their source of combat replacements dries up so using them in combat is going to make them weaker. Most players only save the Base Forces for the air support they have. They also use a lot of common devices like Support Squads, Engineers and Motorized Support so they can fill out their TOE fairly well from a cadre.

Not many APDs yet but converting Clemsons.
Yes the Dutch replace rate is miserable so evacuating Dutch battalions kicked out of bases is priority. Disabled squads can recover and fight again.

Don't forget to check your faster ships like APDs and the xAK "Banana Boats" to see if they will go into a Fast Transport TF. This type of TF can also pick up troops. I am not sure if they can do it if the troops are not in a base - i.e. they have been kicked out of their base to a coastal hex. Patrol Aircraft can do this for sure.

Dutch units are useful but their source of combat replacements dries up so using them in combat is going to make them weaker. Most players only save the Base Forces for the air support they have. They also use a lot of common devices like Support Squads, Engineers and Motorized Support so they can fill out their TOE fairly well from a cadre.


+1

They can pick up troops accidentally dropped on a non-base hex. They can't pick up supplies as they will migrate to a base.

Even if the Dutch no longer have the infantry and other unique Dutch devices, they would still be useful at a base for cooks, bakers, kitchen police, painting rocks, and such things which help units repair faster.
