March7.43

Last turn my airbase at Watampone reached level 9, and I decided to celebrate with a mass oil bombing

So all bombers (at Manado) redeployed to Watampone for a brief bombing campaign, and it has to be brief because the supply level of Watampone is in the lower 20 thousands

In the Kuril theater, I set a SCTF to investigate a small TF at Shikuka, I also set the bombers to destroy oil wells
So long story short, the small TF escaped which means I will court martial the timid commander (Merril), unless he does a good job in the bombardment I ordered.
At least the LBAs were ineffective,

Back to the oil; here is an idea of what is available to Japan:



So Borneo, Burma, Java, Sakhalin are neutralized or soon to be
Sumatra is the main source of oil for Japan, with a respectable +1000 oil wells; that said he only captured Palembang in the late 42

Yeah, that's a grim Oil picture for the Empire. You're missing some centers in Manchuria and Home Islands, but Japan is producing roughly 12,000 FUEL a turn after refining that oil. That's barely enough to keep up with burn in the Home Islands, and once you figure in China HI you're running a slight deficit. And that's before using ANY for Fleet Operations.

The Empire starts with a stockpile, but he's gotta be getting low, particularly given the late fall of Palembang

what is funny is that I cannot see yet any indication of economic hardships; he is still using BBs for bombardment and he is building LBAs in high numbers

I think it is safe to say that Japan has enough stockpiles to easily go through 1943 regardless of anything that the Allies do

Once the game ends, I will start counting all the times CV Lexington got hit, torpedoed, bombed, it had to be at least 4 or 5, most of them serious... but here it is, really unsinkable, the last of the USN fleet flattops,

"Ready" Allied carrier forces in the Pacific are:
- CV Victorious
- CVL Hermes
- CVEs Nassau, Altamaha, Copahee

On emergency repairs:
- CV Lexington
- CVE Sangamon

Even with Sangamon and Lexington fully repaired, it is too little to try anything ambitious; next main offensive will come sometime in mid to late October
