Lowpe vs the Japanese:




Not really true...China looks like it will fall. I might be able to get Valentines in there to hold the mountains eventually. Heck, Japan has Perth, Darwin, PM, PagoPago, Ceylon, Chittagong, Noumea. That is a pretty strong expansion.


But the Japanese have been paying heavily for this expansion. I mean, how many cruisers and destroyers has he lost? A fast Battleship as well? Not to mention getting crunched in Bundaberg, taking a lot more damage than necessary at a mountain base in Java, and getting his tank force stopped several times in China. Then how many precious KB pilots and other trained aircrew has he lost?

That does not mean that China won't fall but it won't be quick and painless. Japan does not have all of Luzon. How about Singapore?

The reborn Dutch Air Force....I am shocked that most respawned at Aden.

The Demons can upgrade to Hurricanes, I have 16.

The bombers can go to B25c...but it will be along process as the current B25cs will need to upgrade. Till then they will provide ASW or NavS at bases in India.

In a little bit I will even get several Catalina squadrons back...I have 30 or so planes for them.

I have about 30 P40Es, but can't find any squadron that upgrades to them.

These guys are really useful.

The Japanese don't have Singers, Clark, Bataan, or Malaybalay yet...when they do get them their VP will climb.

Screwed up the turn a bit...failed to attack north of Rockhampton, and failed to switch to escorts over Bundaberg and lost a dozen divebombers. Ouch.

After the losses he has suffered, I suspect Darwin would be his best bet because it is still isolated. Perth is on a rail line so you can easily supply any effort in that direction.



Japan has Perth and Darwin...It is my choice for the next Australian adventure....

Is this guy actually within range to influence the battle?

4th Fleet is planning for an attack on Wake Island.



Can't be, it's the range of the HQ to influence a battle. 2x the range for a command HQ to allow TOE upgrades.

3 x B-17D Fortress transporting supplies to Tsuyung

4 x B-17E Fortress transporting supplies to Tsuyung

6 x C-47 Skytrain transporting supplies to 77th Chinese (this is the front lines on the Ankang road, interesting that this unit had 0 supplies, while the strongest unit there 30th was 100% supplied)

2 x B-17E Fortress transporting supplies to Tsuyung

2 x B-17D Fortress transporting supplies to Tsuyung

2 x B-26 Marauder transporting supplies to Tsuyung

Despite Tsuyung only being level 4, the beasts seem to be able to land supplies without suffering excessive op losses. We are on the way to 5 though.

What I thought...but the 2x only works on Command HQ range from a Junior HQ. If no junior HQ then it is 1x Command HQ. I think. For purposes of adding a force multiplier.

There is now 140 fighters at Ceylon...more Task Forces, including cargo and SAGs, and ships back in port. Hm.

One of the R class battleships is making a flank speed run to Mangalore today. I haven't spotted any subs lately...risky! She can make six hexes if she doesn't founder.

No current dl on Cochin.

I don't recall about force multiplier going through a junior HQ for range extension, I think command HQ has to be within its own HQ range to contribute to a battle. With the 2x thing I mentioned I was strictly referring to TOE upgrades (in a friendly base, in rest mode, upgrades on, replacements on (not sure about that one), with 2x range of a command HQ, have adequate supply).

1. LCU looks to see if a Corps HQ is in range. If a Corps HQ is found, proceed to points 2-6 below. If no Corps HQ is found, proceed to points 7-8 below



2. If Corps HQ is within range, the level and target of the Corps HQ is checked and a combat bonus within the range 0-10% may be given.

3. If more than one Corps HQ is within range, the levels and targets of the additional Corps HQs are not checked.

4. If a Corps HQ within range was found, the LCU then sees if a Command HQ is within 2x range.

5. If Command HQ is within 2x range, the level and target of the Command HQ is checked and an additional combat bonus within the range 0-90% may be given.

6. If more than one Command HQ is within 2x range, the levels and targets of the additional Command HQs are not checked.



7. If no Corps HQ is found by the LCU, it then looks to see if a Command HQ is in 1x range.

8. If a Command HQ is within 1x range, the level and target of the Command HQ is checked and a combat bonus within the range 0-10% may be given.



9. The combat bonus applies to combat conducted inside the named base.

10. An Army HQ = a Corps HQ. The only difference is that a Corps HQ usually has only a one hex range whereas an Army HQ might have a range of up to five hexes.


A LCU may therefore receive assistance from:

(a) one Corps HQ only, or
(b) one Corps HQ and one Command HQ, or
(c) one Command HQ only

Couple of questions on this if you guys know the answer:

1) Say there are more than two Corps HQs in the same hex as the LCU, how is it determined which HQ the LCU will draw it's potential bonus from. Is it random, is it the one with the higher prep for the hex they are in, is it something else, or is it something we don't know?

2) Say an HQ has a range of 1. Does that mean the HQ has to be in the same hex as an LCU to give a bonus or can it be in an adjacent hex.

For question 2, adjacent hex is within range.
For Q1, most things in the game where the AI has to search go by the database index number of the unit/ship. Look in the upper left part of the unit screen. I can't say for sure that it does not look at the Prep data on available candidates, but that is not mentioned in the explanation and it does say that if a Corps HQ is found, no further searching is done for one.

As with everything else, it is probably the lowest number HQ that is relevant. But I do not know for sure. The easiest way is to have only one ground HQ at the battle hex if you can do so but make sure that it is the one that you want to be there.

Thanks guys!

Edit: How do you guys manage HQs in battle sectors that have several adjacent bases that you want to cover with HQs? For instance let's say the Loyang/Chengchow area or the Changsha sector. Previously I would assign an HQ in each base and order it to prep for its respective hex. If LCUs draw their bonus by lowest index number however, then it sounds like for these base clusters they would all gravitate to the same HQ within range which could be problematic

Lowpe please forgive the hijacking!

Yeah, but at what cost? Terrain means nothing if you lose too much stuff for no other gains. Destroying Allied ground units and capital ships, that's what hurts.

Does she head northwest towards Mombasa or along the coast to Bombay and the removal of some of the system damage?

Dutch fighter groups - might need to go with Hurricanes first and then try to go from there to P-40s.

Dutch should have their own B-25s to upgrade to. It's nice to have them all to man the back bases and use sparingly.

I think you had good die rolls for the full speed run to Mangalore. It is unlikely you would get a whole series of them in a row for a run to Mombasa/Cape Town. For that reason I would move to Bombay and remove all the system damage first. There is no great rush to get the ship off-map, unless you fear KB making a coastal sweep. I think that is unlikely given how you have bled KB already.

If you do move NW to get out of the area before subs stake out Indian ports, you do not have to go to Mombasa first. When your TF is at the map's edge you can set it to go directly to Cape Town and it will still exit the map quickly before going the calculated distance south to CT.

Disbanding in Managalore for a turn or two...as we build up aerial search from Goa and send out some ASW patrols.

Don't you still take damage going from on map to off map base? That might make the Cape Town run more dangerous?

One one squadron, the Demons, go Hurricanes. The others are stuck with no upgrade path. Must be a destroyed squadron that can't respawn.
