From: Seoul, Korea
I'm now in August 1943.
A German Q-Ship mucked around SW of Melbourne a couple of times until I sank it. It took out a few TKs and xAKs. I routed convoys on the southern edge around Tahiti with no losses before I retook the island. Also, I mopped up a few raiders off the West Coast and a lot of them (e.g. AKA and AMCs with 20 aircraft capacity) have been sunk as part of NZ or Geraldton invasion fleets (which are still coming, by the way). Killer TBs have also been seen off the West Coast. Since I routed stuff through East Coast and Panama, those "killer" TBs (they tend to do well in surface fights and have good flak) have actually done nothing except to other surface ships, including sinking two of my CAs near Pearl, and I sometimes see them at the Frisco hex and close to LA.
I didn't move much supply, fuel or troops in the early days--basically just enough to keep NZ alive. I am over a year behind schedule, although I think I can go pretty quickly from this point on. I have all of the Aleutians and Milne Bay, Moresby, Merauke and Horn will be retaken soon, with the Southern Solomons and Tabiteau in September. Canton Island has 16,000 IJ troops, so if overstacking has an effect on the computer side, it can't be doing well.
Beer, because barley makes lousy bread.
