The next turn:
Mopping up operations. The Chinese forces are being pushed towards the sea. There is no mercy in hunting these down, and they are not getting any supply. First of all, they are cut off from their HQs, so the supply path needs to run through the nearest friendly port, from that, which is all the way down at Canton (or Foochow). Secondly there are ships set to interdict the supplies, running from there and at the port they should be coming into.
Also note the beginning of appearance of units with NATO symbols. These units are units with a set amount of troops in them and structure.
The artillery ones that can be seen consist of 3 Artillery formations, and 3 horse formations to tow them. Ordinarily I like my artillery units bigger than that, but as Japan you are making formations on the fly, and not during peacetime...
The Infantry with the Red NATO symbol for Infantry, drawn in black, consists of 40 rifle, 4 HMGs, 4 Mortar IIs 2 horse and 2 infantry gun II. The similar looking unit, drawn in white, is a unit where the HMGs are replaced with General Purpose Machineguns (GPMGs)
