The AP Wharton takes a torpedo off San Diego, returns to port...minor fires, 3, will dock and then disband next turn.

We return the favor torpedoing a small tanker of Sakhalin, sinking her.

Brisbane theater...looking strong, over 300 AV at Toowoomba plus 10 Matildas and 10 Stuarts...Maryborough strong and the road south from Maryborough seems secure. Yesterday bombarded the IJA troops at Maryborough with a cruiser and some destroyers.

34th Regiment at Sydney, recovering from their valiant stand, has recovered 50% of their disablements.

As expected the IJA tank spearhead shows up... which route will they take?

Guessing the main road/railroad line...

An AP damaged in exchange of sinking a TK, this is not a bad rate of exchange.

Yep, Capt, you could make the argument that more damage would be done by excess fuel consumption by letting the tanker live and continue its run for the duration of the war...might have been a decoy/warning system.

another 12 inches or so of snow, followed by sleet and freezing rain...

Can't stand freezing rain. 7 years in Omaha, and they would just send us home before it started and tell us not to come back to work until it melted. Hope it ends for you soon.

Well, a Type-1 sure is not a Tonan Whaler, but still they can be useful for smaller ports (like Miri or Balikpapan, or Shikuka).

Also, isn’t DaIronBabes a mod with reduced load capacity ? I have never played this one, but reduced capacity may change the experience, and usefulness of various classes.

Don't underestimate the small TK, it is indispensable conversation starter!

At least you get the snow first, then the sleet and freezing rain on top of that. Wolves actually like that combination, it makes hunting deer easier.

Sinking any tanker is useful, more useful if they are loaded . . .

Finished the turn, and didn't do a single offensive action...a sure sign of snow fatigue.

The Dutch hold out one more time! If Japan holds true to course, they will shock again tomorrow...but we managed to get forts up to one overnight. Perhaps we will be able to hold again?

Japan continues to bomb Cloncurry at altitude and a few major bombing raids in China.

Those Bleheims were lost flying supplies to China...will need to look at the fatigue, etc. Worst day of op losses flying to China so far.

Raoul Island would be nice for a size 2 AF with Betty/Nells and Air HQ to make the trip to NZ more hazardous. The can almost reach the southern edge of the map.

Don't think he'll go for NZ

Raoul and the Cook Islands achieves his aims of cutting off without risking emergency reinforcements

Course, he might reckon that you've put all your troops into Oz, rather than NZ............

Repulse, sitting at 70+ damage, continues to soak up hits costing Japan planes. These came from a carrier though, normally it has been Sally/Betty.

The Chinese hold again at 1-1, and more importantly looks like they disable quite a few vehicles...but the big fight versus the IJ tanks is yet to come, but any reduction in their fighting force is needed.

The Maryborough Line...

equal assault value, but we have better tubes. Forts are 3+ and building. The great fear is a flank invasion.

The 4th division could be in Reserve mode. But probably not as your opponent seems to want as much firepower shooting as is possible.

China

Japan has a lot of forces just north of Kweilin...16 units, very tank heavy.


We are massing our best units for a big climatic tank battle in terrain of our choosing. Using our interior lines, and transports to meet him with our best.

43rd Cavalry with Stuarts
One Chinese Artillery unit with 105mms
2 Indian Mountain Gun units (3.7 inch)
1 British 2 pounder AT unit
1 Chinese 37mm AT unit
4 US TOE Chinese Corps with healthy AT pools, plus AA and 75mm guns prioritized to them.
1 Base force for AA

Regular Chinese Corps to fill out the stacking limit...
