The Southern Legion takes out a Leftist Replacement Center. Leftist are forming up on their S flank for the counterattack. Damage has already been done to the replacement rate, but there is a possibility to have some recovery.

The second of three Leftist combat rounds on the Sair Usa front. The Leftist are slowly grinding down the defense but need to find better tactics in order to achieve a significant local victory.

This illustrates a need for correction of a design flaw. The engineering units were organized without railroad construction crews and, therefore, cannot repair damaged bridges. The fix has been made giving each engineering unit a minimum of 50% chance to repair a bridge/railroad.

Empire – T26

News: submarine warfare reduces Imperial shipping capacity to 80% (8,000 units).

The Empire is debating the strategic reasoning for occupying the Imperial Manyoni Replacement Center. Looks like it could be captured, and the Imperial replacement rate increased but is the Southern Legion strong enough to defend it? For now, the decision is to continue occupying the Leftist center and occupy the Imperial center at a later time. A little further S the battle fleet is used to bombard Leftist units and slow up their attack.

In the center reinforcements arrive and the Imperialists are able to counterattack. Armor against armor and the Leftist fall back to regroup.

The Sair Usa front is quiet. Some repositioning of troops to eliminate pockets easily attacked by the enemy but mostly just resting, resupply and replacements.

Force Supply: 32 Effective Supply: 39

Leftist – Turn 26

Partizansk volunteers reinforced with regular army units attack the S flank of the Southern Legion. Legionnaires are no match for the regulars and fall back with heavy losses. Leftist expect that the Eastern Manyoni Shores will be cleared of Imperialists in a couple of weeks. Imperial heavy naval units bombard Leftist along the coast, but the losses are not significant.

Along the Sair Usa and central fronts there is little activity. Leftist units need rest and supply before continuing offensive action.

Force Supply: 32 Effective Supply: 39

Empire – 27

The Southern Legion knows that they are out matched and decide to withdraw. Damage has been done to the Leftist replacement rate so the mission can be considered a success. It will take this turn plus two more to fully extract the Southern Legion.

Two units, an armor Bde and Marine Bn have reconstituted S of Kongwa. Again, the Empire will try to make havoc behind the Leftist lines.

Noticed that supply to the central force was not being transported along the rail line as expected. Investigated and found that guerrillas had turned a hex and cut the a rail line. Shows that the cost paid by the Leftist to conduct guerrilla warfare has paid off.

Found two more broken supply lines N of the Sair Usa front. With a 5th Column attacking behind the lines the Empire needs to be more vigilant. Units had been operating with supply in the 20’s when they should have had supply in the 40’s.

A couple of spoiling attacks are made in the central area, but otherwise units rest and reinforce.

Force Supply: 43 Effective Supply: 48

Leftist – Turn 27

News: Submarine warfare reduces Leftist shipping capacity to 80% (8,000 units).

Imperial units reconstituting in Kongwa are again causing problems. Leftist garrison units surround them and begin reduction attacks. Imperial units are known to be low on supply and offer little resistance. Shore bombardment eliminates two Imperial units located on the N shore of Kongwa.

In the Eastern Manyoni Shores area units overrun Imperial positions and move N to prevent the Empire from escaping. Regular Leftist units prove to be superior to Imperial legionnaires.

In the center Imperial forces have been reinforced and are forcing the Leftist into a defensive posture. They will need to hold while additional forces are being organized.

Leftist are trying a different tactic in Sair Usa. At selected points a couple of rounds of minimal loss attacks are conducted leading up to a main assault. Several Imperial defenders are forced to pull back leaving weak points in the defense. Leftist want to break this stalemate and drive toward Tszaq. This would cause the Empire to redeploy for the defense of Dalan.

Force Supply: 43 Effective Supply: 48

The TO&Es for AA Brigades. Settings used in this scenario version give AA a significant defensive capability against aircraft. This setting has been toned down a bit for the next version. Both sides have split AA units into three subunits for better defense of bridges, HQs and artillery concentrations.

Very interesting. How would you rate the Leftists possibilities of achieving a breakthrough at Sair Usa?


The current situation is a WWI like battle of attrition. A successful series of assaults always has the potential for a breakthrough, but it seems more likely that a flanking attack will break the stalemate. As it is now, I would say Leftist chances of a breakthrough are fair. Otherwise, events on other fronts may dictate whether one of the sides will need to divert troops to quell an uprising. Imperial troops reconstituting in Kongwa may be such a factor.

Regards, RhinoBones

Empire – Turn 28

Reconstituted units S of Kongwa conduct Banzai attacks in an attempt to push back defenders and open up territory where more Imperial Kongwa units can deploy. This is a failed attempt.

In the center Imperial forces attack and push back the Leftist. Losses are moderate, but the Imperialist are able to gain a tactical position advantage. Reinforcements are on the way to the center force to exploit the advantage.

On the Sair Usa front units are positioned for defense and resupplied. Imperial command assesses the tactical situation and believes that an offensive may be possible. As a fallback position, they are busy building a defensive line along the river system just N of the Sair Usa front.

The Empire begins extraction of the Southern Legion from the Eastern Manyoni Shores. The Legion has occupied a Leftist replacement center and, thereby, at least temporarily reduced Leftist replacement capability. Since this raid reduces the enemy capability to build replacements, it is judged to be a success. On the downside, a pair of infantry regiments are left behind to cover the extraction and they will probably be lost. These units will not reconstitute, but their replacements will be added to the Legion replacement pool.

Force Supply: 32 Effective Supply: 40

Leftist – Turn 28

Theater Option: An option to increase shock value by using chemicals and gas is exercised.

Leftist surround and eliminate two Imperial units which reconstituted S of Kongwa. Destroying out of supply units is relatively easy, but it does tie up units which could be better used on the mainland.

The central region has become a battle of attrition. Leftist counterattack and drive back an infantry unit. Supplies run low and the Leftist decide to conserve strength for the next turn.

On the Eastern Manyoni Coast, Leftist drive the Imperialist back to their entry port and assault the defenders. The heavy concentration of Imperial naval units provides significant support and inflicts heavy casualties on the Leftist. One Legion regiment is forced out of the port defense and should be eliminated on the next turn.

Along the Sair Usa front Leftist make multiple attacks and succeed in driving a few Imperial units out of their prepared positions. The battle continues for three rounds resulting in heavy casualties.

Force Supply: 43 Effective Supply: 48

Empire – Turn 29

Theater Option: Option appears to recall Eastern Legion; cost of activation is 7 supply. Even though activation will drop force supply to about 25, the Empire decides to recall the Eastern Legion.

The extraction of the remaining Southern Legion units is complete. The formation is being redeployed as reinforcements in the center. The intention is to break the stalemate in the center and then move E toward Sair Usa and hopefully capture a Supply Center along the way. One Southern regiment, which was unable to escape, goes into hiding in the low hills N of Kilwa Kivinje.

Rail movement of the Southern Legion comes to a temporary halt due to another rail hex turned by Leftist guerrillas. This is becoming a real irritant.

Imperialist attack twice in the center but the Leftist hold. Maybe they’re using chemicals and gas in the defense.

Naval units have four bombardment rounds on the Partizansk volunteers, badly degrading a motorized unit.

Near Kongwa another motorized Bn reconstitutes. It doesn’t move in order to escae detection by the Leftist.

Force Supply: 32 Effective Supply: 40

Leftist – Turn 29

News: Leftist attack with chemicals and gas, shock increased to 112. Temporary supply reduction of 15 and permanent cost of 3 supply. This event is good for one turn.

Partizansk volunteers spread out along the East Manyoni Shore looking for Imperial stragglers and re-occupying their replacement center. They find one isolated Imperial regiment but are unable to attack during this turn.

Imperial attacks in the center sapped supply and strength from Leftist units leaving them unable to conduct an offensive. A couple of spoiling attacks are made but have little impact on the Empire.

Leftist conduct a series of attacks along the Sair Usa front but are unable to move the Imperial defense. Evidently the gas and chemicals were not worth the cost.

Force Supply: 28 Effective Supply: 38

Author’s Edit: Chemical attack shock values have been increased. 1st attack from 112 to 120, 2nd attack from 106 to 115. Cost in supply remains the same.

Empire – Turn 30

News: Urban warfare reduces force supply by 20 points.

Theater Option: Option to use chemical attacks next turn. There is insufficient supply available to spend on gas attacks.
Theater Option: Option to surrender to the Leftist. The Emperor feels that his forces have enough firepower to defeat the Leftist, so this option will not be used unless the situation changes for the worst.
Theater Option: Option to negotiate a cease fire. Not used for the same reasoning as above.

Supply reduction due to urban warfare has put a tremendous strain on the force supply situation. One solution to increase supply is to capture the Supply Center located in the mountain pass about 750 kilometers N of Songea. The insertion is successful, and the center occupied. Leftist are thought to be in the area so getting reinforcements to the center is a critical follow up task.

During troop movements a more rail hexes have been found to be turned by guerrilla activity. While not directly damaging Imperial forces, their actions are causing delays in movement and disruption of the supply chain.

The Eastern Legion deploys on the Kilo Islands located in the SW. They immediately embark and sail to invade Pangani. The first objective is a minor supply point located in a port, next will be the major supply point in the Pangani capital. Eventually the Empire wants to occupy Kongwa territory and allow the entire Kongwa formation to deploy.

From the Eastern Manyoni Shores area, the heavy naval units move S to threaten Chunya. As needed, they are ready to support operations against Pangani.

Force Supply: 5 Effective Supply: 11

Author’s Edit: Events for supply decreases due to urban warfare have been toned down from -20 per event to -10, -15 and -20 for the three events.

Leftist – Turn 30

Theater Option: Option to surrender to the Empire. Leftist forces are being stretched but are not yet forced to surrender. The fight goes on.
Theater Option: Option to negotiate a cease fire. Not used for the same reasoning as above.

Pangani forces rally to defend the capital. Units are drawn from the Kongwa area knowing the risk that Imperial units will reconstitute. It is decided that the immediate threat to Pangani must be dealt with first. This move by the Empire, in conjunction with units reconstructing at Kongwa, are major strategic problems for the Leftist.

The Partizansk Corps consolidates its hold on the Eastern Manyoni Shores and chases down an isolated Imperial unit. Some elements will be left to garrison the Replacement Center while the bulk of the corps moves N to the Sair Usa front.

The Sair Usa front and center force are both depleted from the last offensive. This turn is spent resting, reorganizing and building supply.

Force Supply: 28 Effective Supply: 36

Unit positions as seen from the Leftist viewpoint. Other than their failed attempts to force a way through the Sair Usa front, Leftist do not really have a coherent battle strategy. Earlier loss of their heavy naval units limits the possibility of amphibious operations and they are stalemated elsewhere.

Empire – Turn 31

News: The Empire occupies a Supply Center located in the mountain pass N of Songea.

In the center, the Southern Legion disembarks from the rail transportation and begins a movement around the Leftist right flank. Regular units stage a small attack on the Leftist left flank. It may be possible to envelop the Leftist and cut their logistics line to the S.

Heavy naval units laying off the coast of Chunya retire to a friendly port. Most of the units are in the “orange” state and need supply before supporting Pangani operations.

Two more Bns reconstitute near Kongwa. They all move away from the roads in hope of remaining undetected.

The Eastern Legion successfully invades Pangani Bay and captures the port and supply center. They spot a Leftist HQ near the coast and proceed to beat it up.

Force Supply: 5 Effective Supply: 10

Leftist – Turn 31

In the center the Leftist pull back a bit to regroup and form a defensive line. It’s obvious the Empire has reinforced their center and intend to push S.

In Pangani the Leftist are able to scratch up a few reserves to counter the landing in Pangani Bay. A few more units can be brought in from Chunya. The trick will be to defeat the landing force while not compromising the defense of Chunya or the occupation of Kongwa.

Leftist make artillery strikes and small-scale assaults along the Sair Usa front. Nothing too dramatic, the purpose is to weaken Imperial units while the Partizansk volunteers redeploy to the Sair Usa right flank. The volunteers have finished clearing out remnant Imperial units around port Kilwa Kivinje and will be moving the bulk of their force N.


Force Supply: 28 Effective Supply: 36

Leftist – Turn 32

Most of the Partizansk volunteers arrive in the Sair Usa theater and begin to deploy while Leftist regulars make assaults on selected Imperial positions. Attacks are not all out but are effective in depleting Imperial units.

In the center recon detects Imperial movements on the right flank. Reserves from Manyoni are brought up by rail. The formation appears to be about 4 combat units supported by ample artillery.

Pangani Leftist are able to disengage from the invaders and form a weak defensive line further inland. They are making a stand to protect the capital of Pangani and its major supply source. A few additional units arrive by rail from the E end of the island.

Force Supply: 40 Effective Supply: 47
Supply which was temporarily diverted for the manufacture of gas is returned to Force Supply.

Empire – Turn 32

News: Supply is increased.

In the center the Southern Legion completes the flanking maneuver and catches the Leftist reserves before they are able to disembark. Attacks cause heavy Leftist causalities. More importantly, the Legion cuts the Leftist’s rail supply line.

The Eastern Legion starts to move inland and finds a Marine Bn blocking the road to Pangani. The Marines offer little resistance and the Empire continues to move inland.

Units along the Sair Usa front dig in and resupply. The Leftist Partizansk volunteers moving up from the S remain undetected.

Force Supply: 20 Effective Supply: 26

Leftist continue the attrition attacks against the Sair Usa defense. On the right flank the Partizansk volunteers begin their movement to flank the Imperial line.

The Empire’s Southern Legion successfully strikes behind the Leftist lines and catches them still embarked. Heavy causalities are inflicted on the Leftist reinforcements.
