Hi Ian,

Thanks, the plan is to open up Bangkok, Saigon & Cam Ranh Bay and by securing Formosa to allow direct supply from the US via Bonins, Okinawa and Formosa, which is why IJ was key to supporting ops against Okinawa, with Okinawa supporting ops against Formosa.

I was considering forcing a 200 000 unit of supply convoy with significant carrier escort into Bankok/Saigon/Cam Ranh Bay to give me the supply to get air power established there to supress air units in the Phillipines/Chinese mainland.

I'm considering parking my game and going back six months to see what effect different actions have on IJ, I must confess I had become complacent having walkovers at Truk, Wake, Marcus Islands & Guam

What you want is 500,000 supply convoys of Sam & Fort ships from Aden to Saigon/Hong Kong, sailing under fighter cover along the east Asian Coast. Once you have Singapore this is much easier than pushing across the Pacific.

Interesting you say that...my other option or option in conjunction was to run a similar sized convoy through from the Indian Ocean, but probably running West of Sumatra and popping between Osthaven/Batavia and then running between Malaya & Borneo. The big if about this is th Yamato that was operating out of Singapore, I managed to damage her earlier in the year, extent unknown. I have five CV (incl 2 x Essex Class), two CVL and five CVE operating with three BB and a BC out of Colombo and I'm desperate to try an Operation Pedestal and put a couple of 100 K of supply into Bankok, but I need to do a lot of recce before I'm ready to commit to it.

Stockpile supplies in Australia and go up the Eastern DEI to interdict from there. You can move into the Philippines where there should be islands with no defenders or only lightly defended. You can also take bases on the north side of Borneo and the west side of New Guinea to support this.

Could be a constraint put in by the Dev's for any number of reasons.

How fast can you move a 1 ton artillery shell between ships that are moving up and down as well as sideways in respect to each other?

For any phib assault, *especially* against an atoll, you must bring LOTS of supply. Include cargo transports loaded only w/ supply in the initial wave as well as the 2nd-wave TF. Of course you want to banjo the defenders w/ max Assault Value, but they have no combat value if they have no supply. Your initial assault will overload the the target's stacking limit, & the game engine will penalize you by removing your units' supply.
On the 2nd day of the assault, you must be unloading supply into the target hex, in advance of the next ground combat phase.
