From: My Mother, although my Father had some small part.
During the battle of Nanyang, I timed the arrival of a large Chinese force so that it would appear for only a single turn in the hex east of Nanyang before it moved into Nanyang itself.
You mean your Chinese are somehow faster than armor in the clear crosscountry? Edit: oh wait, the east, you marched along the road.. Good play
Great encirclement anyway! Would certainly be a hassle to clear for Japan and mess up with his schedule. Alas the potential to inflict damage to his LCUs there is limited cause of terrain and Chinese squishiness in assaults.
Yes there is no beating the speed of his armor but the Chinese can create opportunities for outmaneuvering Japanese infantry/artillery through careful timing, air strikes to slow down Japanese columns, and through good use of terrain/roads. In this case Slith's armor made it back in time to defend Nanyang when he saw the trap but two out of his three infantry divisions didn't and are now encircled. Whether they stay encircled for long however is another issue.
If you have the supplies to bombard, that will cause those units to use more supplies. If you can bomb and strafe, each attack can cost him an increase in supply usage of 10%.
Seek peace but keep your gun handy.
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing!
