Empire – Turn 33
Theater Options: The Empire activates the TO for increasing the spy network. This will increase reconnaissance capability of enemy units. Supply cost is 4 points.
Variable initiative returns first move to the Empire.
In Pangani the Eastern Legion continues the drive N towards capital Pangani. So far little resistance is met. Their available supply is low so it is imperative that the big Pangani capital city supply center be captured.
A little to the E reconstituted Kongwa units have been hiding from the Leftist patrols. It is now time for these units to breakout and cause as much chaos as possible. Objective is to draw Leftist resources away from Pangani.
Along the Sair Usa front Imperial troops make a series of concentrated attacks, some having good effect.
Force Supply: 20 Effective Supply: 27
Leftist – Turn 33
Theater Options: Leftist use their option to negotiate a cease fire.
The Leftist positions in the center, Kongwa and Pangani are not yet desperate, but it is evident that in a few weeks Pangani will probably be knocked out of the war and the center will collapse. This will leave the Sair Usa front vulnerable to assault from the rear. The Leftist hope that a negotiated cease fire will leave them with enough war material to resume the fight at a later date.
To impress the Empire that they are serious, Leftist forces do not conduct any offensive actions and all ships sail to port. Where possible, units separate from the Imperial units and create a no fire zone. They now wait to hear the Empire’s response to the cease fire offer.
Force Supply: 40 Effective Supply: 48
Empire – Turn 34
News: The Empire receives the offer to negotiate a cease fire and ponders the response.
News: Imperial railroad transport is reduced to 50%. The big R/R moves have already been made so this should have little impact on the war effort.
While the cease fire is debated Imperial forces continue to attack Leftist positions. They attempt to turn the flanks along the Sair Usa front, continue the encirclement in the center and move toward Pangani. The war continues for the Imperial army.
Force Supply: 16 Effective Supply: 23
Leftist – Turn 34
News: Leftist Sea Transport is reduced to 40%. The Leftist are not really in position to use ocean transport, but if they should want to make a move it will be limited in scope.
Leftist absorb the attacks and pull further away from the Imperial troops. High Command waits for the Empire’s answer to the offer of cease fire.
Force Supply: 40 Effective Supply: 49
