Hello my name is soulsilver, I'm an intermediate player and long time lurker on the forum starting a AAR for a game that is already in Progress. We are using reluctant admiral mod with the Dbabes stacking limits which gives japan more staying power into the late game.The current date is march 7th and the entire Southern resource area has been secured, along with Darwin, Port Moresby, Rangoon and the Aleutian Islands. The allies have taken serious surface loses with the confirmed loss of both Lexington class Carriers, and 6 BBs (5 USN and 1 British), while the Japanese have taken no capital ship loses, and only lost a single surface combat ship (an old Light cruiser). Things are looking up for Japan.

House rules;
1)No CV Hunting turn 1
2)Paratroopers; Free to use fragments to capture small island bases but have to bring the whole unit if you are using it elsewhere , either in 1 turn or in the following turns if you cant bring the whole unit.
3)Units cutting retreat must be a realistic size of brigade or above ; What does cutting retreat mean = surrounding a hex completely with units and no direction to escape.
4)All PT Boats in the same hex must be in the same task force
5)No Crossing Malacca strait with surface ships until Japan controls Singapore
6)Fighter altitude limit 20k until 06/42 , 25k 06/42-01/43 , 30k 43-44 , 35k 44-45 , 40k 45-46
7)No night strat bombing until 44
8. No crossing borders without paying the pp costs for moving units of restricted commands
9) exceptions: American units can move freely in Canada, and Thai units may move freely in Burma and Malaya.
10) restricted units may move 3 tiles across national borders before paying PPs.

PDU ON, Realistic R&D ON

March 8th
Oscars sweeps in china net a few P-40es. It appears that the restricted p-40 units on the continental united states just withdrew freeing up quite a few p-40s for use by the flying tigers. They definitely need the planes as they have lost all 92 of their H81's, along with the 30 ish p-39s. Today day about 10 p-40es along with 10 p-39s were downed in china, so we are making good progress in reducing the effectiveness of the flying tigers.

Routine milk runs over Burma, china and Philippines went as normal. It appears that the Bataan garrison will still have supply for at least another month, as AA fire is still intense.

In Burma/India paratroops landed along the railway to chittagong to cut off reinforcements. landings are scheduled for tommorow.

Unless you've destroyed significant forces in Burma and your opponent is woefully inadequate on defense, I'm not sure 3 divisions will be enough to take Chittagong if he has prepared his defenses well. It's an urban hex and with forts is hard to take. By March with a lot of engineers it could have at least 3 forts if not more. We'll see. I know I've made Chittagong a very tough nut to take before. Do you plan to land more around or behind Chittagong (maybe para drop too) to help cut it off?

EDIT: Just saw the total numbers. 3 divisions against 1 should be decent with the landing bonus and if your numbers on enemy defenses are correct. But remember it probably won't be instant if he has forts + the urban hex defensive modifiers. Also, good to know that if he literally just brought int he Aussie division by strat moving it, it will take 3-4 days to unload to combat mode.

Chitagong is a plains hex, at least in the Reluctant admiral mod. Furthermore I am sure that the Aussie division was just moved in via rail, as the tile had been continuously scouted for around a week before hand. Normal post naval invasion bombardment revealed that he has around 420 AV to my 1400 (dont forget the 4 tanks and 2 engineers helping me out). The 7th Aussie Division is backed up by the 84th Indian Brigade and part of the 2nd Pioneer battalion.

also I edited my post from march 8 to include information I had failed to include such as the paradrops in northern India along the railway. reinforcements coming from India should be delayed.

As I noted in my first post, the Allies have lost 2 CVs (both lexington class CVs) 6 BBs, around 15 cruisers, 30 DDs, 15 Subs, Japanese have lost 1 CL, and 1 sub BANZI!!!

in terms of civilian ship losses, ive lost around 40 cargo/transports of various sizes, but not a single tanker! I've only killed around 15 tankers, but killed off around 350 allied civilan ships of various sizes.

Oh wow you're right. It's been so long since I've fought over Chittagong, I just assumed. If this is the RA mod, and it's a clear hex, you should be fine. I think 3 divisions with bombing and bombardment will be good initially and you should have ample reinforcement. Do you have plans to push deep into India? I think an Allied player can do well to hold the line if you make the decision to land on the southern coast or simply attack directionally from Burma. See my current PBEM with John and go to the early section where he invades India. You have to be careful there because even if you have success early on, there is so much land and a good rail system: meaning, the Allied player has ample time to prepare defensive lines deeper in and and can quickly move troops to areas of concern. In my game, I was able to hold John roughly to here:



I was able to build what I view as a triangular fortress just north of Calcutta, building level 9 airfields and level 5 forts at Jamshedpur, Ranchi, and Asanol. The first two were jungle hexes so even harder to take, Asanol was a bit dicey but I just put more troops there. The allies get a LOT of engineers to do all this, even in India. From the airfields there, I was able to overwhelm John's airpower at Calcutta, not to mention I brought in tons of 4Es to bomb him to pieces. So you need to be wary of your opponent erecting strong defenses as well. This is why a lot of Japanese players prefer to land further up in the western coast towards Bombay or even perhaps to Karachi. This is closer to the heart of the Allied logistical effort and threatens the supply lines of the rest of India.

I havent really explained my overall strategy in India yet. I have around 5 Divisions slated for Ceylon and southern India to open a second front. Taking ceylon should help protect my flank while also serving as a launch pad into southern India. the troops at Chiattagong will be reinforced by the troops from burma (3 divisios) along with at least 1 Division from Batavia. I plan to push simultaneously from the south and the east and hopefully can bottle him up by the line of death up by Delhi.

My two Yen here:

--You don't really need to produce the Tina, but probably too late; H6K Float Transport a better option
--Don't upgrade Topsy 1 to Topsy II until the engine pool for Topsy I runs out

Otherwise looks fine, R&D more important

the Japanese start with two wings of 27 Tina's in this mod so I need to produce them just to replace loses from transporting the Naval Air landing brigade (around 141 Av of paratrooper goodness)

I'll take your advice regarding glen tho.

March 11th

Kido Butai catches ships fleeing Calcutta, which is around a dozen 2 point AKs and such. Recon spots ships fleeing north from Ceylon, and the British surface TF is nowhere to be seen. It possibly was retreating north from Trincolmalee as I have plenty of surface search from Port blair and I cant see anything coming. Second echelon troops have unloaded at Chittagon and around 90 fighters with more on the way. Once the airport is built up to 2 I'll start sweeping Calcutta. Junyo and yamato are about to reach Singapore, so ill have to figure out what to do with both of them. The sister ship Hiyo should arrive in Around a month to form the 4th Carrier Division, but until them Ill probably just stick Junyo with Hiryu and Soryu. Otherwise just normal Milk runs in china and some fighter sweeps trading K-43s for p-40s and p-39s.

30 x J1N1-s
60 x J7W1
210 x N1K1 (im not seriously trying to get George early but the next upgrade for the george in 8/44 is a Navalized version of the George which is gonna be my replacement for A7M2.)
90 x P1Y1 (prob only needed 30-60 on this fact but what ever)

EDIT: I should note that upgrade paths are different in RA, A6M2 directly upgrades to A6M5 which arrives in 10/42. also george arrives early in 5/43 so plently of time to speed up the arrival date of N1K2.

Heres a picture of current tacker industry outlook. My supply has been steadily rising the past month, so im not too concerned. Ive let The Hokaido resources pile up too much so ive rerouted several cargo ships to CS from Hakodate to ominato.

Skip the early Tonys with the bad engines, go to the Ki-100s with the better engines and an SR of 1. Nice cannons against 4Es.

Put the Junyo in with the CVLS/CVEs as it is slower.

Ok I'll give the ki100 another look. In terms of the junyo I do not have a conventional mini kido butai as one usually would in vanilla, all of my CVLs are integrated with my fleet carriers into carrier TF of 2 CV 1 CVL. The two CVEs I start with are together but otherwise I have no combined CVL fleet.

I'll give an over view of the revised japanese OOB in my next post
