The submarines evade pattern after pattern of depth charges, resulting in the cruisers and accompanying destroyers, ammunition exhausted, returning to port ...

The subs emerge from the ocean depths in a further attempt to engage but find an empty horizon (searches: Axis 8, Allies 3). They return to La Spezia to lick their wounds.

Low cloud and rain spattered canopy's don't do much for dive bomber accuracy.




That's it for this evening.

Germany announces two combats at Warsaw and Liege. Von Leeb is called on for HQ support at Warsaw and a Do-17 adds air support at Liege. The Do-17 returns to Cologne.

The low, rain sodden clouds affect the quality of radio transmissions. By the time the message to Von Beck has passed through several different decoders before reaching him, it reads something along the lines of send three and fourpence, we're going to a dance. In the resulting confusion, the attack goes in without the General (10 rolled for HQ Support).

The defence of Liege crumbles in the face of overwhelming odds and the city is occupies by an 8-4 MOT and 8-6 MECH.

Despite the initial confusion, the assault on Warsaw goes in without further hitches. The capital is occupied by two armoured corps and engineers.

No break downs.

Italy scraps the San Giorgio.

Due to a Chinese partisan on a resource, this oil configuration only delivers 9 BPs. Should one less oil be saved? Or should Japan change the builds? Or any other variant?

Thought that might happen. Send one of the DEI oils to production, thanks.

I wonder why the program always wants to save the NEI oil in Ominato. It is frustrating. And it forces me to use override. Even in the first production step.

*sigh*

I am taking a break from end of turn. For some weird reason I used to think end of turn was fun. Don't know what I was thinking. The production system is borked with defaults that no one has ordered and can't be removed, so they must be overwritten all the time. Convoy routes that was changed that the program can't remember even though not even one CP has moved. And then there is the worst, traded resources. It feel like the program is fighting a war with me. I learned how to avoid most of these pitfalls.

And done all that I reach the oil reorganization step and wonders why a oil seems to have disappeared from Germany. Germany had 3 oils in Berlin, used two to reorganize for, and when it came to Italy they wanted to use little oil from Germany, and the program listed Berlin, once, as containing zero oil. first time I've seen a 0 oil listed before I begun reorganization. Hoped that it would return after the step. But it was a forlorn hope.

So now I am talking a walk to calm down.

And hope that I do not break things further by using a end of turn save. Because that has caused errors in my games before.

Rant over.

France - 9 production points - 9 BPs.
USA - 40 production points - 11 BPs.
USSR - 23 production points - 8 BPs
China - 7 production points - 5 BPs.

Stay at sea:
The following units stay at sea.

CW:
Convoy escorts in 1 and 4 boxes

All units, except 2 x BB + 2 x SUB + 4 x CP, are reorganized for 1 oil (1.00). Edit: Forgot to add that one HQI remains disorganized.

USA:
All units, except 5 x BB, are reorganized for 0 oil (0.4).

China:
No units are reorganized for 0 oil (0.0).

Breakdown: -

Allies win the initiative (Axis 7 +1, Allies 9). At least the first round. Will Axis demand a reroll and have a second go at winning the initiative?
