Congrats on the CV battle! That was a very nice result for the allies taking out 4 CVs! And, the threat to their oil almost certainly makes them come out to play before they get any significant reinforcements. You're also pushing them back in India so Japan may be on defense from now on barring some miracle fleet battle.


And, then they get a miracle.

US Assault adv to 44.
Axis air resupplies critical surrounded units in DEI.

And, to the tune of "Monday, Monday"
Japanese rain bombs and torpedoes on my fleets. There are so many air strikes I lost count of them. And, for the first time waves of Kamikazes ripping holes through the decks of my carriers.

Naval Air Strikes lead by waves of Kamikazes for the first time send the Yorktown to the bottom and severely damage the Enterprise.

Then Kido Butai arrives which was suppose to be an inferior force of three CV's, 2 CVL's and a CVE that my mighty US Carrier fleet was suppose to send to the bottom with ease. Instead my attempt at a Interdiction strike turns into a disaster. With Enterprise sent to the bottom and Yorktown II and Wasp II taking heavy damage. They only manage to sink a lousy BC.

Strikes occur to my other fleets but at least not decisively.

The invasion of DEI that started so brightly on the 4th of July, ends in humiliating defeat sending all my ships fleeing back into the Indian Ocean. Leaving three marine, one army and a number of divisions trapped on the islands without supply.

I leave subs behind to resupply the trapped troops but if the weather doesn't give them cover they will also be sunk in mass.

The crippled US fleets move west into the Indian Ocean. Hopefully out of range of any follow up attack.

China - Clear
But they are to weak to do anything other than some weak 2:1 attacks.

India - Rain

The only bright spot. The Japanese slowly retreat and the Allies follow. Pursuing UK Corps attacks the weak Japanese unit linking the trapped forces to the north and covering the Krishna river and destroy it completing the cut off.

If I'm reading it right you lost two CVs sunk and two CVs with heavy damage. A bad result but I'm guessing he used up LOTs of planes and you still have CVs it's only 1943 and you are ashore in the DEI. The losses only mean that your fleet is not overwhelming. If you can bear some risk send in ships to keep the guys on the DEI supplied! All is not lost!

The land based air is proving deadly to ships trying to resupply. It won't be possible to do that without committing my already damaged fleet to close support. LBA's are probably over powered in the game. Kamikazes I am not familiar with so don't know what the cost/effectiveness trade off is for them.

Naval Air Strikes wipe out my submarine supply units. Bullhead, Hawkbill, Skipjack and Toro are sunk.
I also didn't realize that if subs resupply a land unit they immediately switch to Fleet mode making them even easier to kill.
The forces on DEI are probably doomed.

Reinforcements:
US receives Intrepid CV.
India gets a division.

The defeat in DEI definitely hurt my carrier lead but I can still field a superior force. The Japanese have lost five CV's compared to the US loss of four. The Japanese do have a lead in CVL's though. And, have apparently build some additional LBA units making venturing into Japanese held waters very dangerous for the US fleets.

China
Pretty quiet. Pushed back on garrison unit.

India - Rain along most of the front.
I have cut off the Japanese in the south but haven't closed the port to prevent their escape.
My defeated Carriers move back to India and help isolate the ports.
And Australian division is landed on Ceylon.

This is probably the move I should have made when I didn't get the weather I needed for DEI. An intact fleet with a large contention of infantry could have taken Colombo and possibly Calcutta trapping the large Japanese force in India.

Australia
Sending more bombers as they become available to northern Australia.

Produciton
US: Strategic Bomber, 2 Subs, 3 Landing Ships and 2 Inf. Div (lot of units to replace).
UK: Landing ships
Canada: Landing ships
Com China: Supply Truck
India: HQ

Convoys - no change

US Carrier Op adv to 44. USSR Hvy Armor adv to 44.

Two more subs are sent to the bottom by Japanese air, Growler and Pike.
My infantry in DEI are doomed now.

Reinforcements
US Battleship and a Bomber.
Australia gets an infantry division.
India gets an infantry division.

Production
US builds Marine and Inf. division to start replacing the loses to come.
India builds an Inf. division.

Convoys are unchanged.

China
There seems to be a bug that cuts China's production to around 4 every once in while. One of those whiles was this turn. It also puts all the units in basic supply.
Japanese withdraw from Haiphong. I have no idea why but I quickly move to occupy it and get my first VP hex gain since I stopped losing them.

Australia
I moved a Strategic Bomber to Derby but it can't reach anything important.
Solomon Islands are in Heavy Rain.
But I take advantage to the suppressed air due to rain to occupy Namuga (SE of Guadalcanal.

India - Heavy Rains on the mainland.
I advance in the south tightening the noose on the Japanese there.
Still blockading Colombo waiting for it to get weak enough to take.
And, worrying about the Japanese fleet coming to break it. So far they are still hanging around DEI to make sure I don't come back there. Their main fleet is in Singapore which is also under heavy rain.
My main fleet is in Bombay but heavy rains keep it from recovering.

Indian and UK troops make a series of attack getting them closer to taking Madras.
1st AF makes a strike against the Japanese destroyer group that moved into the port getting two hits.

An Indian division is landed on Ceylon to help take Colombo but the combined attack fails to break the defender.

India - Clear
But heavy rains in Ceylon area so there is no Japanese fleet attack this turn.

In Ceylon a combined attack takes Colombo and my second victory hex this year.

Around Madras a coordinated attack of UK and India armies wipes out the Japanese southern armies and takes Madras.

This allows me to bring my Escort Fighter close to my fleet in case Kido Butai decides to sortie from Calcutta.
I also bring the Australian CV/CVL fleet into the mid Indian Ocean for support if needed.

With the taking of Colombo my Victory situation is improved but this is quite late in 43.
They still hold a substantial advantage of 23 VP to my 15 (8 difference).

It looks like most of the Japanese fleet relocated from Calcutta to Singapore. There will be no great carrier battle this turn.

US needs to find a dry spot for its fleet so it can recover Effectiveness. For now they head for Bombay and hope for better weather in October.

The US Fleets in the Indian Ocean return to Australia.

Production
India: Division
Canada: Truck
US: Marine, 2 Trucks, Air Transport, 2 AA.

I believe the Sea Power situations is the following:

Ships US/UK Japanese
CV's 8 3
CVL's 5/1 6
BB's 12/1 6
BC's ... 3
CVE's ... 2

Australia/S. Pacific
Just some shifting of units to get them in better positions.

India - Rain
Japanese continue withdrawal toward Calcutta and Allies continue to follow.

China - Clear

Japanese fall back in south. Chinese follow.
Where they don't run fast enough I attack.

In the north the Com. Chinese continue to try to push their way into Japanese held territory.

In Indochina the Chinese push further south taking resources and cutting rail lines.

The last of my units in DEI are overrun. The attack turned into a fiasco. But there was some results from it but they are difficult to measure in terms of effect because it depends on the Japanese situation. I cut off 160+ oil over the 5 turns I held the fields. Plus a lot of oil was spent sinking my ships.

Only 6 Japanese carriers in Singapore this turn. Rest are unaccounted for.

US CV;s in Bombay are at 75% Effectiveness. Weather is clear so hopefully they will continue recovering.
The US carriers at Sydney are all back to 100%.

Reinforcements: US 2 divisions.

China - Hvy Rains
Shift forces both north and south to extend my lines.

Indochina

Move more forces in and push my territory out to just north of Bangkok and up to Quang Ngai.

I expect next turn there will be push back to stop this.

My line closes up on the still retreating Japanese.

In the south I am able to strike at the Thai division with a series of attacks that eventually overrun it.
1st 4:1 hits 2 vs 2 holds, 2nd 5:1 hits 0 vs 3 holds, and 3rd 7:1 resulting in overrun.

In the center of the line I attack the Imp. Guard Div at 2:1 with even results, 2 vs 2 hits.

They have the advantage now of a constantly shortening line which allows them to recombine their divisions into armies.
Pondering ways to change that equation.

India - Clear

I am way behind on VP and losing war. So I get desperate and try some "hail Mary's".

The Japanese are pulling back as fast as they can. If they get behind the river west of Calcutta I will probably be blocked for quite a few turns. After that they have the Dacca line. I need to get supplies going to China to create an offensive there and get those two VP. Can't go another six months with Japan still accumulating VP.

So I make a couple of attacks on units I can catch up with but do little real damage.

My desperation attack is to cut off all supplies to the Japanese army in India but that requires significant risk to my fleet which hasn't recover full effectiveness.

Blockade fleets move out to cut off the two ports (blue arrows) and the main US carrier fleet with 4 CV's and 2 CVL's move to a spot in support distance of them.

In addition the UK lands two division north of Rangoon who move to cut the rail lines there.

The second part of the "Hail Mary" is to start an offensive against Port Moresby and Lae.

DEI
Movements to expand my bomber coverage deeper into the China Sea and DEI.
US division lands on Ambon which will allow it to support bombers able to attack NEI, Borneo and W. Papua.

New Guinea and Solomon Islands.

US Fleet in Sydney sorties with 3 CV's and 3 CVL's to cut off supply to Port Moresby.
They are supported by a submarine group of 4.
Landings are made on both sides of PM.
Landings to get air bases are also made on Milne Bay and Henderson Field.

Most of my bombers and Air superiority fighters are based on tip of Australia in support distance.
My fleet isn't as strong as the Japanese but hopefully the LBA's will make up for that.

Japanese sent more troops in. I am not sure why none were interdicted.
I launched bomber attacks against the various airfield to wear down the LBA's.
Then moved my carrier fleet off Lae to trigger any interdictions.
There was a naval air strike resulting in 2 hits against the Japanese 12th Air.

Since there didn't seem to be to many air units set to fight I landed a division north of Lae and another one NE of Port Moresby.

Most of the carrier fleet returned to Port Moresby leaving a blockade fleet.

Bombers and Air Superiority fighters are moved to the captured air fields to provide close support.

China - Snow in north.

Indochina

The two UK divisions are now cut off but move to make sure supply to India is cut.

Japanese move two fleets to blockade the ports my units in Indochina are drawing supplies from. This leave them out of supply so the retreat northward but are sill blocking some rail.

The Japanese fleet is on the move, Red Circle, but I have no intel on it.
I suspect it is Kido Butai. Probably couldn't reach my carriers from Manila so they are just positioning themselves.

I succeeded in cutting off their supplies. Now my problem is can I hold the blocking positions to be able to hold it another turn or two so the Japanese armies are actually reduced.

I execute a number of attacks but only in the south do they make a break through that might trap one of their armies.

I move the main US carrier fleet close to land where it will be out of range of Japanese air at Rangoon and well within the support range of the Indian Air Superiority fighters.

I also move the UK fleet next to the US fleet (larger arrow) to give it some support.

Then almost exactly two years after Pearl Harbor. The Japanese do what they failed to do at Pearl. They wipe out my Carrier fleet off Calcutta. They do it without suffering any hits even on their ships.

Mostly demonstrating I don't have a clue what affects a carrier battle.

The Naval air strikes did do damage to one CV but nothing that would account for the one sided results. So more is going on with the Air to Air combat and readiness of the carriers to fight.

The Japanese carriers didn't even make their own attack. (I found out later my opponent had forgotten to switch from Raider mode). So a battle between a fleet trying to avoid combat in Raider mode is more powerful than a fleet that out numbers it but is in Fleet mode trying to have a battle.

Since the purpose of this AAR was to see what the US is capable of after an assault on India, there is not much purpose to continuing. I need to find a way to test CV vs CV and LBA's vs CV battles using hot seat. This isn't all that easy to do since there is very little information on what is actually happening. And every combination has to be run multiple times to determine what the odds for that combination.

So the Allies ask for an Armistice ending the Pacific War.

You got super unlucky with the random dice roll as shown by the 'ambush' status next to the Japanese fleet. You should have both had good recon on each other, being within two hexes of an opponent controlled tile but the Japanese fleet being in raider and the air attacks probably meant your fleet's identification was much higher than his.

Always, always, always keep a fleet in raider mode unless you absolutely need it to attack something else. Being in fleet is essentially giving your opponent free recon on you and a largely risk free attack as they can move in interdiction range then use the other action point to move away. Raider really should be the default mode for fleets as it is just so much better in 99% of situations.

I think I determined my error.

I meant to send in the Lexington II CV armed with the latest technology and supported by first line fighters from the Indian Airforce.

Instead I sent the Lexington supported by trainers.

Recognized that CV16 right off, see it everyday on my commute into Corpus.

The "Blue Ghost", what a wonderful museum, so lucky to have it in my back yard.

My son had a job near by, Ingleside, and is now moving back to Houston. I was helping move yesterday and we had time to do the tour. Well done museum. He was a little mad. Said the sailor births on the Lexington were larger than what they gave him on the USS George Washington. Also, question whether the galley really served steaks.

Enjoyed the AAR as well. Sad to see it go. Watching the counteroffensive in India was fascinating.
