OK, so just reaching 1Jan42. Yep. I am slow. :)
Coal Harbor will be many weeks before I can even think to start attacking it.
CV TF off of Victoria has finally left. I damaged several CV's, but with faulty US torps, I doubt I sunk any. They are likely just in drydock for a bit.
Seattle/Vancouver area has a lot of restricted ground forces deployed against a possible landing.
Evacing everything outside of Kodiak. Trying to get an Anchorage fortress in place. Maybe.
Ditto Prince Rupert. Maybe I can hold if attacked.
First CV escorted convoy arrived. Mostly troops and fuel. Not enough supply, but that was due to not enough xAK's. Those have been arriving, so next trip will be better.
Hilo, is still occupied, but I have lvl3 forts now, daily bombardments (air and naval and ground). I will shift the newly embarked 2nd Marine Rgt to Hilo and then start attacks.
Midway, Johnson, Christmas all taken.
My blocking force at Nanning has survived and now been reinforced by 3 more corps. I think I can hold for sometime.
Pulling back into 3x terrain around CK valley. Will not try to hold Sian, but will try to hold CK/Kunming.
I've already lost a lot of squads, but that is good as it helps my supply situation. I still hold Changsha, but not for long.
I still hold singers and just got the Kota Bharu units back. The Mersing unit is in Singers, but not strong enough to take it.
Big Sir Robin to Koepang. Going well, but of course this is just a delay tactic. I had originally wanted Den Passar, but Andy fixed that idea in the first turn.
Forting up in Sydney, Darwin, Perth.
Sydney will expand the fortress area once Sydney is at lvl 5 forts. Everything has to be really tight. Pretty sure the IJ will try here, there have already been a couple of raider attacks.
Perth, will try to hold, but against determined attack, no way without jeopardizing Sydney.
Darwin, will build this up but not likely to hold. Need to make it pricey though. Lvl3 forts already and still going.
Cleared the southern ambush, barely. Middle one is blocked just outside Taung Gyi. Starting to move the reformed Burma Div north to clear the road to Ledo.
Karachi, Delhi, Bombay, Madras, and Calcutta are the 5 key areas. Each has a Command HQ assigned. Building forts in each. Calcutta and Madras have the most risk, but I plan to hold all 5 using mobile reaction force (not yet existing). Initial elements are just arriving in Aden.
Bait. Want to try and kill/damage as much as I can. I know I can't hold it, but I can make it pricey to take.
Down to last few bases. Bataan grind is imminent. Lvl 3 forts and still growing.
Retreated to Auckland and Wellington. I just need to hold until I can get USN there. 6? months. Maybe.
Suva is already fallen. Depending upon what is deployed against me here ... no idea at the moment.
OZ and NZ are real dicey. IJ has untold numbers of CV's and BB's. Even with all of my CV's, I can't match up with aircraft at all. F2A/F4F aren't that good. SBD-3's hit hard, but are short legged. Gonna be tough to get all the way to NZ by June, 9 months before I see any F6F's … I'm hoping that I can re-take Christmas Island and then send a CV escorted convoy into Auckland. But that is a LONG way … 81 hexes … 11 days each way.
Andy, you are a devil!!!
